One brand that I have been super impressed with over the years has been Battle Arms Development. They make some of the slickest, lightweight and functional parts. They are known for their lightweight receivers and hand guards that come in at the higher end of the price spectrum. However, they are lightweight without being skeletonized and kinda generic looking.
Pictured above is one of our “Learning Center” Guns. It is an entire B.A.D. gun built out of some of the best parts they sell. The coolest part about it, is that it weighs under 5lbs. You get some of the best looking receiver sets in my opinion. The designs on them save weight without sacrificing any function.
They make Triggers, buffer tubes, stocks, grips, safeties and even all the other lower parts that you would need. They all are cool designs
We have a ton of their Complete rifles and pistols in stock right now and they are the perfect blend of quality and price. Right now a lot of brands are upping their prices to match the demand. So an entry level gun is going to cost you anywhere from $600-$800. The Battle Arms WorkHorse series of guns, are going to only run you a few $100 more, but you will get a significant upgrade in fit and finish and overall quality of the rifle here.
