AR Free Float Tubes
I have owned a full service machine Shop for 11 years now. I wont plug it because I am not a site sponsor.
I am currently thinking about producing some AR accessories and would like some input. Right now I am working on an initial run of some AR Free Float tubes. I have 2 prototypes done that are the 2" billet aluminum tube. They are heavily vented with a unique design milled into 8 locations every 45 degrees. They have mounting locations for picatinny rails in 4 locations every 90 degrees.
They will be sold in 7" carbine, 9" mid, and 12" rifle lengths. Each one will include free float tube, barrel nut, lock ring, full length picatinny rail, 3" picatinny rail, and front trim cap. All parts are mil-spec hardcoat annodized black, except the lock ring which is steel so it will be zinc phosphated coated (Parkerized).
Would there be much interest in these items if the pricing is as follows: carbine lengths $90-$100, mid lengths $105-$115, and rifle lengths $125-$135? Please keep in mind that these come with the front trim cap that other companies charge an extra $20 for.
Pic is attached below, just keep in mind these are still in the machining stages and some parts are still "in the white". The picatinny rails are not the ones that will be provided. Provided will be the flat top style without the groove machined down the center.
Thanks for your input.
Do you have any solid mid lengths?
I like. Solid target gun style would be cool, maybe w/ knurling. I'll be needing a mid-length soon.
I do have solid tubes with knurling. There will be 3 different styles in carbine, mid and rifle lengths. Should be about 3 weeks before everything is back from annodizing. Hopefully web designer will have site up and running by then. I'll get the info posted here as soon as they are ready.
Very nice! Can you do "custom" cut outs?
I can do custom cutouts and / or custom engraving. PM me with your e-mail address and we can discuss it.
Are these available right now. PM me if they are.
Hey redchevyman I am very interested. Please PM me your e-mail or phone number so we can discuss it further.
I tried to pm you but I don't have enough posts yet.
Interesting new pattern, have you thought about offering them in the white for those of us that apply Dura-Coat so as to match the rest of a rifle?
Too bad that I cannot PM "redchevyman" about buying his US compliance parts due to my low post count. :dunno:
