Acme Machine Father’s Day Sale

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 checked the links. They go to Acme’s site.

    2. avatar California Richard says:

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

    3. avatar Anonymous says:

      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 Her link, that she intended to be a link, is at the end of the article.

    I don’t know that I could ever trust a company that injured a poor starving coyote so many times.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Damn straight.

      And isn’t every Acme product a scratch-n-dent?

      1. avatar Moltar says:

        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.

    2. avatar BobS says:

      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.

      1. avatar Moltar says:

        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.

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          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*… 🙂

        2. avatar Moltar says:

          There was also a few where he was a toddler, that Space Jam movie, and of course the new remakes of Looney Tunes all made well after one had to licensed and background checked to get explosives.

        3. avatar neiowa says:

          Was all good until a couple damn Kennedys ate one and ruined it for everyone else.

      2. avatar Geoff PR says:

        Each and every Acme Anvil has been drop-tested more than a Sig 320…

    3. avatar Bloving says:

      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.

      1. avatar Creedless No Moor says:

        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.

        1. avatar Dave in PTC says:

          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?

        2. avatar Dave in PTC says:

          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!

        3. avatar Moltar says:

          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.

        4. avatar Dave in PTC says:

          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.

        5. avatar Stereodude says:

          Shouldn’t June 5th be Creedmoor day instead of the first Monday in June?

  3. avatar Ahil925 says:

    The deals aren’t bad… But they also aren’t great.

    1. avatar Creedless No Moor says:

      More importantly, there’s no 6.5 Creedmoor kits!

      1. avatar Mark N. says:

        Speaking of which, I am gathering parts for an AR 10 build. Where can I find a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel? Shilens are pretty pricey.

  4. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Loved those old cartoons. I can hear the intro song…

  5. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

    “meep meep!”

  6. avatar TX223 says:

    Lots o Made In China stuff…
    Half the kit probably.

  7. avatar billy-bob says:

    “…they perform well within their price point.”
    Damn with faint praise?

    1. avatar Kat Ainsworth says:

      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.

  8. avatar Arandom Dude says:

    .224 Valkyrie would be so much better if it was called .224 Creedmoor.

    1. avatar Creedless No Moor says:

      nah, 5.56mm Creedmoor

      Metric is cooler!
