Are you sitting on a pile of 5.45×39 spam cans that you hoarded before the recent import ban? Do you wish you could put all that ammo through something other than an AK-74? Ares Armor wants to help you put that ammo to good use. They just released a 5.45 AR15 Barrel & Bolt Combo Package that will let you build an AR-15 chambered in 5.45.
The included barrel is 16″ long with a 1 in 8″ twist, carbine gas system, and an M4 profile. It is made from 4142 steel and nitride processed which is a huge plus when dealing with corrosive ammo. The bolt is made from Carpenter 158 steel and Ares Armor says that it meets or exceeds the TDP.
This kit is extremely affordable at the sale price of 179.93. Even with the supplies of surplus 5.45 drying up, steel-cased commerical ammo will continue to be available and the cartridge is better suited to the AR platform than 7.62×39. So, if you are the type who wants an AR-15 chambered in one of the inexpensive Russian calibers, this could be a great option.
