Build Your Own Glock

Want to see just how easy it is to build your own Glock and not spend all your money in the process? Check this out.

What exactly do you need to build one from nothing?

1. Frame –

2. Slide –

3. Barrel-

4. Slide Completion Kit if your slide is stripped and if it is assembled, ignore #4. –

5. Lower parts kit w/ trigger or w/o trigger. if you want to run your own trigger you will need to get one like a Timney or Apex. We offer a lower parts kit with a flat AIM Trigger. –

6. Now the slide is optic cut so you can throw an RMR footprint optic right on but if you are doing a budget build irons is your key to completion.-

Lets start with the frame:

Let’s toss in a parts kit with a trigger to complete the frame:

Guess what: your lower is done and only 110 bucks so far.

Let’s finish up the upper build!

Now we just need a slide parts kit, iron sights, and barrel and we are good to go.

Now you have a complete lower, you just finished a complete upper. Slap those together and you have yourself an optic-ready firearm for under $370 bucks.

Now I used the cheapest-priced AIM parts I could find to build this but with minor tweaks, you can build an even better option with porting for 5-6 bucks more!

This is just a base. You can add match-grade barrels or threaded barrels for a compensator or suppressor. You can even take it up a notch from there and use our laser services to upgrade that frame from stock to a fully custom laser-stippled setup. Tons of options and tons of great prices!

Feeling A Bit Gassy?

We have a solution for that!

Superlative Arms is a well-known manufacturer of high-quality firearms components, and their adjustable gas blocks are no exception. These gas blocks are designed to provide shooters with the ability to adjust the gas flow to their firearms, which in turn can improve their performance and reliability. Now, you might be new to this and asking yourself :

“What are Adjustable Gas Blocks?”

Adjustable gas blocks are a type of gas block that allows the shooter to adjust the amount of gas that is directed into the action of their firearm. The gas that is directed into the action is used to cycle the bolt and eject the spent casing. By adjusting the amount of gas that is directed into the action, shooters can fine-tune their firearms to run more reliably and efficiently.

Superlative Arms adjustable gas blocks are designed to provide shooters with a high level of precision and control. The blocks are easy to adjust and feature a set screw that allows the shooter to make precise adjustments to the gas flow. This level of control is especially important for shooters who use their firearms for competitive shooting, as a consistent and reliable gas flow is crucial for accuracy.

In addition to their precision, Superlative Arms adjustable gas blocks are also built to last. The blocks are made from high-quality materials and are designed to withstand the harsh conditions that shooters often encounter in the field. Whether you are using your firearm for competitive shooting or for personal defense, you can rest assured that your Superlative Arms adjustable gas block will provide you with years of reliable performance.

The Superlative Arms Patented “Bleed Off”, direct impingement, gas block for the AR-15 platform adjusts the gas flow by bleeding the gas out of the front of the block instead of restricting the flow like conventional adjustable blocks.  This results in the following:

  • The pressure used in the block is reduced only to the amount required to drive the bolt carrier. The remaining gas and pressure are bled out of the block allowing the system to run much cleaner and cooler.
  • You get a reduction of wear on the bolt carrier group components and a reduction of felt recoil allowing for faster follow-up shots.
  • The patented adjustment detent is located outside of the block and therefore no contamination.
  • When in bleed-off mode the gas adjustment screw does not restrict the gas flow; therefore, there is no erosion or seizing of the screw and no loss of detent due to carbon build-up. Although it is removable, we have added a safety mechanism, which stops you from unintentionally backing the screw all the way out.
  • When using SBR’s and/or suppressors the bleed-off port allows the excessive pressure to be exhausted out of the block reducing blowback

Brace for impact

On Monday, January 30, the lovely folks at the ATF published the final Pistol Brace rule in the federal register.

As you may have heard, the rule would assign essentially all firearms with attached stabilizing braces to the registration and taxation requirements of the National Firearms Act.

This is confusing because, in 2012, the ATF has recognized that stabilizing braces serve a legitimate purpose, and the inclusion of a stabilizing brace on a pistol or other firearm does not automatically subject that firearm to the provisions of the National Firearms Act.

There has been a whole bunch of confusion that the ATF has had to figure out what they actually mean and then explain. They are never minor details like for example, the rule claims that destruction or alteration is required for owners who choose the option of simply removing the brace from their firearm. ATF confirmed that braces that are removed from firearms do not necessarily have to be destroyed or altered in a way that prevents them from being reattached to a firearm. That requirement would be contrary to the Supreme Court’s decision in United States vs Thompson/Center Arms Co. That case says that possession of a firearm and parts that can only be assembled into an NFA “firearm” constitutes possession of an NFA firearm. But, if the parts can be assembled into multiple lawful configurations, then the parts are not considered an NFA firearm (unless an unlawful configuration is actually assembled).

To me, this means if you have a Pistol setup with a brace on it but you also own a 16″ complete upper, you should be able to keep the brace without destroying or altering it. But if you only have a pistol setup with a brace and nothing else you have to dispose of the brace to avoid creating an SBR.

Another big one that made me even less interested was that in the final rule posted on the ATF’s website, the agency claimed that imported pistols with stabilizing braces would need to be destroyed or surrendered because they were unlawfully assembled in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(r), which generally prohibits the assembly of “non-sporting” rifles or shotguns without sufficient domestically manufactured parts. Meaning my MP5 or my Stribog, although purchased legally could not only not become SBR’s but would have to be destroyed.

Section 922(r), makes it unlawful to assemble from imported parts a semiautomatic rifle that is otherwise not importable. The implementing regulations of the GCA at 27 CFR 478.39 provides that a person may not assemble a semiautomatic rifle using more than 10 of the imported parts listed in the relevant paragraphs of the regulation. Now under the final rule, the criminal violation under section 922(r) is for the “assembly” of the semiautomatic rifle; So in short, no modification of such firearm would cure the 922(r) violation because the “assembly” has already occurred amd was imported. This makes it so any person with an imported pistol that was subsequently equipped with a “stabilizing brace” will have the same options as anyone else under the final rule. Should that person choose to register the firearm, no further modification of the firearm with domestic parts is required.

The fact that ATF already needs to “clarify” aspects of the rule and make changes or adjustments before it was officially published in the federal register further contributes to the arbitrary and confusing nature of the rule.

Some good news for us law-abiding gun owners, the federal courts have recently proven more willing to invalidate agency actions that go beyond congressionally enacted statutes. The bump stock ban was struck down by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. I think based on this and the fact that the ATF said to make the pistol brace exactly to these specs and it is perfectly legal, then decided this also made them illegal, sets a legal precedent.
