G&A's Holiday Gift Guide for Modern Sporting Rifles

G&A's Holiday Gift Guide for Modern Sporting Rifles

Those of us who own AR-15s understand the sense of pride we take in accessorizing our modern sporting rifles. There's always a new piece of gear out there to make rifles more personalized and enjoyable.

Whether you're creating your own wish list or shopping for someone else, G&A has you covered. Come range time, our holiday gift guide for modern sporting rifles will have you singing yuletide carols to the tune of your favorite rifle.

DuraCoat Aerosol

Who says all Modern Sporting Rifles have to be black? DuraCoat Aerosol makes it quicker and easier than ever to apply a rugged new finish to your guns. The aerosol can eliminates the measuring and mixing of original DuraCoat, while still providing the same rugged protection against rust, corrosion, salt water and UV rays. The coating comes in a variety of colors, and can be applied to bare metal, Parkerizing, anodizing, wood and plastic. Each can provides enough coating for 2-4 firearms, with no baking or preheating required.

Price: $34.95/can

Otis Ripcord

One-pass cleaning systems are quick, easy and effective, but the knock on them is that you can't punch out a stuck case or other obstruction. The new Otis Ripcord uses a Nomex fiber braid over a molded, rubberized core/cable that is rigid enough to remove obstructions. The Nomex fibers serve the dual role of brush and patch. The ends are also threaded if you feel the need to add components. Currently available for .22/.223 and .308.

Price: $15

SureFire Magazines

When standard 30-round G.I. magazines won't cut it, SureFire 60- and 100- round magazines are just the ticket to keep you throwing rounds downrange. Compatible with all M4/M16/AR-15 variants, their simple design allows for field disassembly with no special tools required. The mags are constructed from anodized aluminum, with steel springs and a tough polymer follower to feed rounds reliably with no lubricants required.

Price: $159 (60-round); $199 (100-round)

Trijicon VCOG 1-6x24mm

Though Trijicon's Accupoint scopes are both versatile and effective, the VCOG (Variable Combat Optical Gunsight) is the company's first low-range, variable-power optic designed specifically for military and tactical use. Available with a variety of LED-illuminated first focal plane reticle styles, this heavy-duty scope gives other high-end scopes a run for their money. Unlike most of its competitors, the VCOG features a rugged integral mount for attachment to Picatinny rails.

Price: gallery=369,270.00

Blackhawk Diversion Bags

Blackhawk Diversion Bags are designed to disguise long guns in a few cleverly discrete ways. The bags come in several designs, resembling common luggage items which aren't usually associated with transporting firearms. Styles include courier, workout, skateboard and racquet bags. We've found the board style comfortably transports an AR-15, broken down at the take down pins.

Price: $54 to $174

Daniel Defense Modular Float Rail 12.0

One of the slickest free floating handguards on the market is the Daniel Defense Modular Float Rail 12.0. This 12-inch handguard is made from 6061 T6 aluminum, with mil-spec type III hard coat anodizing. The rail comes with three 3-inch rail sections, that can be mounted at virtually any position on the rail — or not at all if you prefer a lightweight setup.

Price: $255

DPMS Miculek Compensator

Named after and used by champion shooter Jerry Miculek, the DPMS Miculek Compensator is both simple and effective, making it an inexpensive muzzle device that is aggressive and very easy to clean. It has side ports only, so it does not specifically address muzzle jump. Shooters with handyman skills and a drill can add a port or two on top if they feel it's needed, but most are pretty happy without.

Price: $49

Geissele SSA-E Trigger

There's a reason why some of the best competition, law enforcement and military shooters choose Geissele Triggers. The Geissele Super Semi-Automatic (SSA-E) Trigger is a drop-in unit that will bring any AR-15 from average Joe to rock star status in minutes.

Price: $230

Pierce Munitions Ammo

Still having trouble finding ammo? Pierce Munitions has some of the most popular cartridges available, including .223 and .308. Depending on your specific application, Pierce also specializes in a variety of Ted Nugent hunting and personal defense ammunition.

Price: Varies

Slide Fire SBS-308 Stock

For those with .308-caliber modern sporting rifles, you can now add more roar to your range time with the SBS-308 stock. Slide Fire Solutions has adapted their revolutionary firearm technology to be compatible with one of the most requested platforms to date. The SBS-308 was designed for installation on an Armalite AR-10 lower receiver equipped with a carbine-style receiver extension, or any firearm with similar dimensions.

Price: $369.95
