First Ever – AK Gunstruction User’s Choice Build – May 2017

Gunstruction’s last big release brought with it the ability to build virtual AKs. Now, about a month later, Gunstruction has compiled the parts selected most often by Gunstruction users into a single User’s Choice Build. This is not intended to be a cohesive build (though it may work out that way) but rather a compilation of the most popular parts in various categories based on Gunstruction’s data. It is an interesting window in consumer trends.

We don’t have any trends to compare this build against since this is the very first AK User’s Choice Build but there are still some interesting observations we can make. Magpul continues to dominate the grip and stock categories among Gunstruction users, even when they are building AKs. It’s also interesting that a 7.62×39 AK was chosen as the most popular starting platform.


AKs in Gunstruction – Version 5.0 Live on All Platforms

Gunstruction Version 5.0 is now live across all platforms (online, iOS, Android, etc.). This is one of the most anticipated versions of Gunstruction yet thanks to the new inclusion of the AK family of rifles. That’s right, now you can build virtual AKs.

Gunstruction User’s Choice Build – April 2017

History has been made! If you follow Gunstruction’s User’s Choice Builds, you know that there has been one common thread across every single one… Not anymore!

The Gunstruction User’s Choice Build for April features an optic that isn’t an EOTech for the first time. Gunstruction users selected the Atibal AT-AGB Gen II for their virtual builds more than any other optic in April. EOTech may have finally been dethroned (at least temporarily) but Magpul continues its strangle hold on the User’s Choice grip and stock.

You can follow these User’s Choice Builds at the Gunstruction Facebook Page. They compile the most selected options from their virtual AR-15, AR308, and R700 building tools into a single build. It can be an interesting look into trends.

AKs Coming to Gunstruction

Gunstruction is working on version 5.0 as you read this. The biggest news that will likely come out f that new version will be the inclusion of the AK family of rifles. Version 5.0 will feature AKMs, AK74s, M70s, M92s, Veprs (RPKs), and milled AKs with a variety of chamberings at launch along with AK specific products from manufacturers like ALG Defense, Magpul, RS Regulate, and more.

Gunstruction – More Free Content

There are major changes coming to the virtual rifle building tool, Gunstruction, with the next update. There will be new options and new parts but the biggest news is that there will be more free content in the app. The new version (4.6) will give you access to all weapons (AR-15, AR308, and R700) for no cost along with save slots to save your creations.

The changes are not in the respective app stores yet but should be available soon.

Gunstruction on Rail Attachment Method

As the KeyMod vs. M-LOK debate continues, it is easy to forget about good old Picatinny rails. Gunstruction mined the data from their virtual AR-15 building tools to see what attachment system their users preferred over the last month and the results are a bit surprising. It is basically a dead heat with M-LOK, KeyMod, and good ol’ 1913 rails each being used in about a quarter of the builds. The remaining quarter was taken up by rails with no attachment method or an alternate method.


First Ever Gunstruction R700 User’s Choice Build

This is the first ever Gunstruction R700 User’s Choice Build!

Gunstruction is a virtual firearm building tool that can be used to help plan your next AR-15, AR308, or Remington 700 based firearm build. They provide a wide array of virtual parts that can be compiled in any way that the user specifies. They are also able to track the parts used most often by their users and these parts are then compiled into monthly User’s Choice Builds. These builds are always an interesting look into consumer trends since Gunstruction’s user base and part selection are fairly broad.


Since this is the very first R700 User’s Choice Build, there are no trends to comment on yet but it is certainly interesting to see Magpul’s continued presence across the AR-15, AR308, and R700 User’s Choice Builds.

You can view the August R700 User’s Choice Build in the Gunstruction app HERE.


Gunstruction August 2016 User’s Choice Build

September is here and that means it’s time to look back at August User’s Choice Build. Gunstruction compiles the most popular parts from each category in their virtual AR building tool into a single User’s Choice Build every month. These builds are always an interesting look into consumer trends since Gunstruction’s user base and parts selection are fairly broad.

This month features many of the same parts that have featured heavily in previous builds including EOTech optics and a Magpul grip and stock. The Troy Industries 7″ Bravo Rail and Magpul AFG are also becoming fixtures of these builds. It is also interesting that these builds have features a standard front sight base since March of this year while much of the industries seems to be moving toward low profile gas blocks.
