Just a heads up, Acme Machine is having a Father’s Day sale on their AR build kits. Available kits include 5.56 NATO and .224 Valkyrie options including most of the components you need for a build with the exception of the lower.

Acme Machine’s AERO BA Complete Rifle Build Kit

For example, the Aero BA .224 Valkyrie PRS Complete Rifle Build Kit includes the following:

  • 18″ .224 Valkyrie SPR 1:7 Fluted Stainless Steel Barrel
  • 6.8 MIL-SPEC Nitride BCG
  • 17″ Ultra-light M-LOK
  • Complete Lower Parts Kit
  • Ambidextrous Charging Handle
  • MIL-SPEC Rifle Extension and Rifle Buffer Kit
  • Stainless Steel Rifle-Length Gas Tube
  • .750 Low Profile Gas Block with Roll Pin
  • Gen-II Upper Receiver (Assembled), Anodized Black
  • Luth-AR MBA-1 Modular Buttstock Assembly, Polymer, Black
  • 223 Custom TPI Competition Muzzle Brake 1/2×28″

If your dad is a builder or interesting in his first build, these kits are worth a look. Components such as the barrel in the above Valkyrie kit come from Ballistic Advantage and uppers from Aero Precision, both of which are well known manufacturers. So even if you aren’t familiar with Acme, odds are you know those companies.

Acme Machine’s 5.56 NATO Complete Rifle Build Kit

I’ve run Acme’s products on hunts and at the range and have found they perform well within their price point. In fact, some parts have proven to be quite durable. These kits are a great way to get started as a builder or to add an affordable rifle to your collection. Building is a lot of fun – in fact, I have several to do myself right now for both work and just because – and I highly recommend it. There’s something to be said for running a rifle you put together yourself, not to mention it’s an excellent way to familiarize yourself with the inner workings of ARs.

Check these kits out on Acme’s website here. Sale MSRP ranges from $249.99 to $449.99. Happy Father’s Day!

    • I clicked it and it linked me to an article about how 6.5 Creedmore is the second coming of Christ.

    • TTAG uses ads that create links from specific words or phrases. The first link has “acme machine” a different color and is underlined. This is not Kat’s link. This is a link their AD engine created, and yes it indeed goes to overstock.com. Her link, that she intended to be a link, is at the end of the article.

      • Probably, and if your foe happens to be a rascally rabbit or roadrunner well then you’re screwed. The device will malfunction and injure the user.

    • ACME had nothing to do with it. You should blame the roadrunner instead. Though not all roadrunners of course, just that one.

      You’re the reason why we needed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Anvils Act.

      • Acme sure broke a lot of laws though…. Selling explosives to an unlicensed coyote without a background check through the mail over the phone. How did he not get busted somebody had to have noticed all those explosions out in the desert and the craters in the highway.

        • Those cartoons are 1940s vintage.

          You literally could just walk into a hardware store back then and buy stabilized tri-nitro-toluene off the shelf.

          For those pesky tree stumps you have a problem with.

          *cough*… 🙂

    • Thinking about it now: there actually WAS one episode where Wile E. did try to simply shoot that damned bird with a bolt-action rifle. To no great surprise, the gag used was to simply outrun the bullet which then drops pitifully to the pavement.
      So. Can’t say the coyote should have just tried shooting him.
      🤠

      • That’s because it’s was a .308 or some other inferior caliber, not a 6.5 Creedmoor. He used the wrong tool for the job.

        • All calibers are inferior to the Creedmoor.

          Today is the last day of Creedmoor Week 2018.
          I miss it already. Can’t wait for 2019!!!

          There should be a Creedmoor Day; how about the first Monday of June each year?

        • Creedmoor Week (and day) should have a spokes person/animal… I nominate the Roadrunner.

          Dang, we also need a Creedmoor:
          – song
          – official drink
          – flag
          – symbol ( like for a tattoo)

          Come’on everybody, let’s have some ideas. There’s only 10 hours left (Eastern Time) in Creedmoor Week and then its back to being nice to the .308 guys!

        • Jones Soda the official soft drink of 6.5 Creedmoor.

          Nickelback the official band of 6.5 Creedmoor.

          For the flag, a white background with a picture of Tom Brady on it.

          The official symbols will be Oakleys, a Skoal can, vaporizer, and the Ford Mustang.

          is that douchetastic enough? Actually you could probably use all these for all caliber supremacy douches and gun design o philes.

          EDIT: I forgot to add the Affliction T shirts, tribal tattoos, bro dozered out diesel truck, and Molon Labia gear to that list.

        • LOL, It’s just a joke. This week I bought a Ruger SR762 in 7.62/.308. I’m a .308 guy. Jeremy’s original 6.5 Creedmoor vs .308 was good fun, so a bunch of us have kept the theme going.

    • Actually that’s the standard for any good review: does a product perform well for its price point (or outperform it)? Too many times a product is judged as lacking for not performing as well as something three times its MSRP. I’ve been doing this for some time now and work to be fair, honest, and realistic.
