The NSSF SHOT Show 2017 is underway and suppliers and attendees, alike, are ascending upon Vegas in great numbers. With over 20,000 exhibitors on the docket and an expected 60,000+ attendees in attendance, there is no shortage of buzz in the air.
80% Lower is out there attending our very first Shot Show and want to bring some of the excitement to you. Throughout the day, we have been getting our hands on some the newest, most coveted AR-parts at the show and taking photos (if the supplier allowed us to do so). Some of our favorite aspects of Day 1 have been just getting our hands on some of these incredible custom AR-15 and AR-10 builds. While there is an over-abundance wicked builds throughout the floor, we have narrowed it down to our top 3 favorites for you to enjoy.
1. The first piece that stopped us in our tracks was an incredible AR-10 build at the HexMag stand. Its show-stopping custom wood furniture was just one of our favorite aspects of the build itself.
2. The second rifle that caught our attention was brought to the show by Rise Armament. It’s red anodizing could not have been an easy feat to accomplish. In a sea of black, bringing a custom red AR-15 was one good way to stand out amongst the crowd.
3. Wrapping up our favorite builds was the Hi-Lux Precision Optics rifle. With it’s custom carbon fiber handguard and stainless flash hider, this rifle was so long that it needed it’s own display table.
We’re getting excited for day 2 of NSSF Shot Show 2017, and we will update you with our top finds of the day tomorrow!
