New from Black Rain Ordnance: BRO-PG14

Black Rain Ordnance (BRO) was born in January 2009. They’ve progressed from making upper and lower receivers to producing everything a buyer of a modern home defense sporting black rifle could want—except stocks, grips and gas blocks. (They’re working on it.) Black Rain’s found their way into almost every major manufacturer’s catalog from Cheaper Than Dirt to Cabela’s. I asked the company’s president what separates BRO from the 543,345 other AR makers . . .

Looks. And quality. And looks. BRO machines their own parts, including barrels, receivers and even flash hiders. And then they add a bit of ‘tude. As George Bush never said, mission accomplished. AR buyers bored with basic black receive have taken to BRO’s skull receiver [above]; it’s been selling like ballistic hotcakes.

Since 2009 the company, BRO’s been expanding its product line and nationwide distribution network. Despite their growing popularity BRO product reviews are almost as rare as Bea Arthur jokes. Expect that to change shortly . . .
