Battle Arms Development Lightweight AR-15

Your lightweight AR-15 build is now too heavy. Battle Arms Development and Brentwood Gunsmithing are showing off their new, super secret, custom, lightweight AR-15 that weighs LESS than 4 pounds. Let that wash over you for a minute.

BAD Lightweight Build

Not only does it weigh less than 4 pounds, but it manages to do so with forged upper and lower receivers (with some obvious modifications). It includes several custom made parts including Battle Arms Development’s new Grade 5 Titanium Enhanced Pivot & Takedown Pins. Battle Arms Development assures us that we will see several new items that come from this R&D project.

It is great to see a company involved in this sort of project even if the carbine shown never makes it to market as a complete project. This kind of research and development works in auto racing and it looks like it could work in firearms too.

Check out Battle Arms Development.

    Wow. That is light. Titanium takedown and pivot pins sound slick. Is titanium And carbon fiber the future ?

    that is damned nifty.
    wonder why they went with a break instead of an A2 flash hider.
