If you’ve followed AR15NEWS for any decent length of time you’ve probably noticed we build lots of ARs. Some times, as an AR builder, it’s easy to get in a rut and kind of build the same thing over and over again which gets boring. All it takes is a bit of imagination and planning and your next build can be the best one you’ve ever put together. This is the very case with my most recent build.
Believe it or not I had SBR’d this Rainier Arms forged lower well over a year ago but had no idea what I wanted to do with it. Then it came to me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. From there it was just a matter of time before I had the parts in hand and ready to build.
Lets start out with a few closer shots. From this angle you can see the Rainier Arms ambi safety, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle and Scalarworks OPS (On Point Sights) fixed rear sight.
As I mentioned above, this build got started as a Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC lower that I bought and Form 1’d just before the ATF41P effective date. I added a Rainier Arms forged upper and ambi safety, CMC Triggers Flat 3.5lb Trigger and LPK, Superlative Arms Piston Kit, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle, Geissele MK4 rail and Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights and Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint T1 and a SureFeed Magazines 20 Round mag.
Of course as a Rainier Arms SBR build I chose to use their 10.5″ .223 Wylde barrel. Covered it with a Geissele MK4 rail, Arisaka Defense 300/IR Series Scout Light and Inline Scout Mount, SureFire SR07 switch, Scalarworks OPS Fixed Front Sight, Magpul vertical grip and Griffin Armament Taper Mount Supresspr Mount. The Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under there somewhere. 😜
Here’s another angle of the business end on the new Rainier Arms SBR build. From this angle you can now see how accessible the Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under the rail. This isn’t like many piston kits were you have one or two settings. Its more like a Piston Kit that has a built in fully adjustable gas block so you can really tune it in.
This next shot gives you a better idea of how tidy things are on this build. It’s got everything I need and nothing I don’t. The Scalarworks OPS fixed sights and mount for the Aimpoint T1 are absolutely amazing.
And here it is. Hope you guys enjoyed a pretty detailed look at my new Rainier Arms SBR build. In the end, this SBR turned out even better than I had pictured it but the initial imagination and passion to create another gun is what got it all started. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to just slap together the first complete rifle you can. Take your time with your next build, map it out, think about what would make you smile every time you see it and then build that.
Here’s the full run down of parts for this build. If you want to copy it, be my guest. Would make for a great AR Pistol build too.
Already had a chance to get the gas dialed in on the piston kit and man this thing is smooth. Will be getting some range time this week with this gun getting it sighted in. Will let you guys know how it runs soon.
KAK Industry manufactures barrels for some of the biggest name retailers out there and every once in a while ends up with a few barrels left over after a large production run.

**Updated image after press release below** Have you ever wished you could run a Rifle Length Gas System on a 16″ or shorter barrel? How about a Carbine Length Gas System on a barrel shorter than 10.3″? Typically, the longer the gas system the smoother and softer the recoil impulse will be. It’s been tried many times before and the end result has always been either an extremely oversized gas port OR scrapping the common length gas system and switching to a custom length gas system….that is until now. My buddy Garret at SPECIAL OPS TACTICAL is today introducing their PATENT PENDING Siphon AGP (Angled Gas Port) Nitride Barrels. By creating an angled gas port they were able to run longer gas systems on shorter barrels than ever before. The crazy part is they are using regular gas blocks and regular Pistol, Carbine and Rifle length gas tubes so the only custom part is the barrel. Does this have you intrigued like it does me? Tons of information is available below. Check it out!
[Press Release Begins]
In a quest to design, engineer and produce the World’s shortest length gas operated firearm barrels using industry standard high quality components Garrett Potter owner of Special Ops Tactical an Embry Riddle Aerospace grad, Philip Picardat owner of Artisan Arms /Micro MOA a Master toolmaker who has made high precision barrels for the industry’s biggest names for over a decade and his son Ryan McCormick collaborated efforts to produce an all new revolutionary line of barrels called “The SOT Siphon AGP Barrels”. This new revolutionary line of barrels are being produced by Artisan Arms and will be exclusively sold by Special Ops Tactical. We have developed and manufactured the first and only barrels ever to feature a “rearward” angled gas port in order to increase dwell time and gas pressure enabling us to create the shortest “Pistol length, Carbine length, Midlength, Intermediate and Rifle length barrels in the World while utilizing non-proprietary “gas tubes and gas blocks” by way of our all new “Siphon AGP Barrels” that feature our “Rearward” angled gas port. Until now no other company in the world has produced a barrel that features a “Rearward” angled gas port. “Meaning from the top of the barrel where the port is initially drilled with the gas port angling rearward back toward the “barrel extension” / rear of the barrel in order to gain dwell time and gas pressure”. PATENT PENDING)
Traditionally and to date all barrels are drilled with a straight 90 degree gas port and require about 1.5” Inches of barrel in front of the gas port in order for a barrel to function properly. Otherwise you end up with a gas port so large that in order to cycle the system that the bolt carrier group is violently slung back by the over gassed port “vastly” outside the area of “normal” operation that even a muzzle brake is not able to overcome the extreme over gassing of the enlarged straight port which leads into several negatives being accuracy, recoil, wear and tear and multiple reliability issues; Not to mention the extreme deafening sound when using a muzzle brake on a short barrel. Our new “Siphon AGP Barrels” cycle the gas system properly with a much smaller gas port allowing for correct, positive and ultra-reliable function as well as increased recoil reduction “because of the smaller port “which provides much better recoil control as well as accuracy that is just NOT possible with all other manufacturers’ barrels to date!
Our new revolutionary design allows our barrels to be “the shortest” possible length while using standard gas tubes, standard gas blocks as well as greatly reduced sizes in gas ports because of their Patent Pending “rearward” angled siphon gas ports. Our new “Siphon Angled Gas Port” is so much smaller than traditionally possible generally speaking the Siphon AGP gas port sizes are 10 to 20 thousandths smaller than their straight port counter parts. The new Siphon AGP barrels have anywhere from a 8% up to 20% less felt recoil over their straight 90 degree port counterparts depending on specific barrel length, accomplished without the aid of a muzzle brake or any other recoil reducing device! When a muzzle brake is implemented these barrels are incredibly smooth!
We like to push the limits of what is possible just to see what can achieved. Designing and building standard components is still enjoyable but we thrive on designing and manufacturing tomorrow’s products!
Throughout this endeavor we knew that there had to be a few key features:
#1. The Barrels must use a standard length gas tubes not custom or proprietary.
#2. The Barrels must use a standard diameter and height gas blocks not custom or proprietary.
#3. The Barrels must be reliable enough to be employed by LEO, Military application, as well as contracted applications.
From our extensive testing we have found extremely promising results that the Siphon AGP barrels have much less of a recoil impulse than their traditional “Straight Gas Port” counterparts. Generally speaking 8% up to a 20% reduction as compared to their straight port counterparts partially due to the reduced gas port size but is also associated with being able to run a longer gas tube not previously possible with traditional straight port barrels but also because the gas flow has one less 90 degree change in direction so makes the flow of gasses smoother throughout the entire system.
The profile, shape and weight of these new barrels was also very important to us. We chose to start with a medium contour custom profile on this new line of barrels because of their crossover ability of being able to deliver excellent accuracy but in a more balanced refined lighter weight profile than a traditional government profile as well in efforts to help overcome barrel flex and whip.
Many manufacturers across the board intentionally over gas their barrels in order to ensure their barrels cycle on all types of ammo being hot or light loads. This causes excessive wear and tear on the entire system and its parts as well as causing unwanted excessive recoil. We make sure our barrels are not over gassed. I see and hear so many people both customers as well as others in the industry state or think that a specific gas port size for a particular barrel length and or profile will be “universal” the same or similar to every barrel made across the board; this is NOT the case! The gas port size has a “direct” relationship to the length of barrel and the Inner diameter of a barrels bore and the slightest change or difference in bore diameter will determine the proper gas port size. (Even with barrels of the same length and caliber all bores are not the exact same size.)
After extensive testing I have realized we have truly designed and manufactured “unobtainium”. This is the only actual dissipator barrel system. The new guns “That feature our SOT AGP Siphon Barrels” are truly very special and unique. They will become a staple in the industry because of their unparalleled smoothness and reduction in recoil that can be applied to Military, Law Enforcement, Contractors and recreational shooters alike. Our shortest 5” Inch AGP Siphon barrel offers a super compact firearm that is lightweight and extremely agile with such a major gain in recoil reduction over its 7.5 inch straight gas port counterpart, as well as being able to have extreme muzzle control in both semi and full auto modes of firing. To the shooter the guns that feature our SOT AGP Siphon barrels are so much smoother than any other AR15 platform weapon in or near its category and will absolutely be a major game changer for the industry and shooters alike. As soon as people get a chance to fire this barrel they will instantly feel and see that this is truly a revolutionary product!
Special Ops Tactical will be first releasing (5.56 NATO Caliber Siphon AGP Barrels in (5”Inch Pistol Length Gas),( 9”Inch Carbine Length Gas), (14”Inch Rifle Length Gas) and (16.01”Inch Rifle Length Gas), as well as several lines of our new Patent Pending SOT Siphon AGP barrels in multiple lengths and calibers including (5.56, 300BLKOUT, 7.62×51, 6.5 Creedmoor) as well as Complete Uppers and Rifles and will continue to add more lengths and calibers in the future so please stay tuned!
—————— New Image Added Below ———————————-
The image below better shows the “rearward” angle of the gas port. Unlike some older AKs and a few other AR manufacturers that have made angled gas ports drilled towards the muzzle end of the barrel, the SOT Siphon AGP barrels angle “rearward” towards the barrel extension.
