Christmas is coming, and if you’re reading this then you’re probably wondering what to buy your AR-lovin’ significant other, right? We’ll make it easy – take a look below at our top 12 stocking stuffers for the gunsmithing enthusiast!
If your gunsmith has been cursing and throwing tools in the garage while he or she tinkers away on their next build, then chances are they’re missing a very important tool: An Armorer’s Wrench! This nifty wrench is specifically designed to make AR-15 assembly and disassembly a breeze – it’s essential if your gunsmith is swapping barrels or buffer tubes.
Gun cases are great for transport, but your shooter needs a good, comfy sling to make a day at the range or a stint on the hunting trail enjoyable. A single-point sling is the simplest and most convenient, and it makes a great stocking stuffer!
This simple little bottle of liquid is a must-have for your shooter, especially if he or she puts their AR-15s through their paces. The black finish on any AR can scratch easily, and this Aluminum Black makes for a perfect at-home way to clean up all those rifle or pistol blemishes. Just dab a little and you’re done!
Building or disassembling an AR-15 takes some patience and precision. All those tiny little pins and parts take some coaxing to remove – and without a small brass hammer, there’s plenty of risk of losing those parts, denting something, or scratching up one’s AR. This small brass hammer is perfect for your significant other’s next build!
If your significant other is often rolling their rifle or pistol around on a bench while they work on it, they’re doin’ it wrong. This convenient Vise Block will allow your gunsmith to easily mount his or her piece to a vise without scratching it up. It makes maintenance and building way easier, and it’s a small, convenient stocking stuffer to boot!
We’re keeping with the theme of providing your partner with all the professional gunsmithing stuff he or she needs to do things right. These little Bench Vise Jaw Pads will help secure any AR rifle or pistol without marring up the finish. They’re a must-have for any gunsmith.
You guessed it – more stuff to keep your significant other’s AR looking pristine while allowing him or her to work with ease! This rubberized, 36”x12” AR-15 Build Mat is the perfect surface to take a rifle or pistol apart on, and the detailed diagram provides an in-your-face reminder for every step taken!
If you really want to “wow” your partner Christmas morning, get them the RA-535 Advanced Trigger. This one-piece performance trigger is one of the best on the market. It will transform any home-built AR into a competition-ready shooter with a trigger that breaks like glass. When your lover unwraps this bad boy, he or she will be blown away and itching to hit the range (trust us, we were).
Okay, maybe the world’s best AR trigger may be a bit much – that’s okay! We’ve got an awesome update that’s more affordable. Trusted by operators and law enforcement all over, this AR trigger is still a huge upgrade over any parts kit trigger, and it’ll fit into that stocking quite nicely.
Has your significant other talked about a lightweight trigger? Then our most affordable trigger, the RA-140 Super Sporting Trigger, should be the stocking stuffer you pick. With a 3.5-pound trigger pull, the RA-140 is one of the lightest triggers available. It makes quick shots and follow-ups a breeze – he or she will love it.
Pulling rounds with that new trigger will eat up ammo quick – your significant other won’t be able to stop, believe us. That’s why you should also chuck in some nice, new magazines! Our PMAG M2 30-rounders are amazingly rugged, reliable, and lightweight. They’re a great upgrade over those stamped aluminum magazines, and if you hadn’t guessed, they make excellent stocking stuffers.
Okay, maybe you live in a gun-law-heavy state. Plenty of states restrict magazine capacity to just 10 rounds. That might not be as fun as 30 rounds, but it won’t stop your Christmas shopping! We’ve got some nice PMAG 10-rounders that get the job done with that same reliability, while keeping your shooter safe and legal.
