Over the years I have built a bunch of ARs. Some are not that special to me but others I have really grown to love and will be ones I will hand down to my kids as they grow up. Most of my rifles are pretty “Frankenstein’ish” So I wanted to start sharing a little bit about those special ARs. Nothing too in-depth. Just easy reading with some parts listed and a nice photo.
One such rifle is one of the first ones I would probably think of when it comes to grabbing a rifle in a SHTF situation. My PWS / Seekins Precision hybrid which I’ve had for about 4 years now has morphed into a rifle I could never see myself getting rid of.
The Seekins Precision SP223 billet lower receiver was the first part of this build that I owned. At first I wasn’t sure about the looks of the SP223 but it quickly grew on me and I had to have one. With the addition of a Wilson Combat TTU-3G trigger, Battle Arms BAD-CASS-SA-ST (Combat Ambi Safety Selector – Semi Auto – Short Throw) ambi safety, a Magpul MOE+ grip, Fortis QD End Plate and B5 Systems SOPMOD Bravo stock this lower feels complete.
The upper I can not take as much credit for its awesomeness as I did not build it. It is a Primary Weapons Systems MK114 complete upper. The MK114 consists of a 14.5″ .223 Wylde QPQ barrel, pinned FSC556 comp, PWS Long-Stroke Piston System, PWS 13″ KeyMod rail, PWS Forged Upper and a BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle.
I added to this upper a set of Magpul MBUS GenII backup sights, an Aimpoint PRO, RailScales KeyMod covers, a Zero Bravo Inc KeyMod RHS (Reversible Hand Stop) and a SureFire X300U with SR07 tape switch.
Why is this one of my favorites? Not only is it a pretty sexy looking rifle but it is an extremely reliable and solid rifle. I’ve put it up against some of my 18″ SPR type rifles and with exception of my .5″ group tack driver it shoots as good if not better than the rest. Its not a cheap setup by any means but it is definitely one I would grab in a heart beat and not have any reservation as to whether or not it could get the job done when called upon.
