Every year we make a AR-15 custom rifle featuring parts from a variety of firearms manufacturers and upgrade makers. For 2015 we did two custom builds. Here are the links to a pair of Gibbz Arms G4 side charging upper based buildsone right handed, the other an elusive left handed AR15. For 2016 we looked for innovation in every part of the AR-15 custom rifle build. Check it out below. We think you will agree that this is one special build.
