FOREARM SKINS HAVE ARRIVED

100% Designed & Made in America

Free Shipping via USPS Flat Rate Box anywhere in the USA

Bison Armory is proud to introduce its latest innovation: the FOREARM SKIN (Patent Pending) – a flexible but rugged cover that quickly zips securely around the forearm (and any rails) of an AR-15 platform rifle. The Skin’s ballistic nylon and neoprene construction protects the forearm and rails from damage and provides the shooter with unparalleled comfort and utility in all conditions.

WHY A FOREARM SKIN? Anyone who has carried an AR-15 in the field knows the ‘joys’ of handling an aluminium forearm for hours on end. The metal gets cold in the morning, so you wear gloves, which inevitably make your hands sweat. Once in the sun, the forearm absorbs heat and slowly roasts your hands until you put your sweaty gloves back on. And if your forearm has picatinny rails, then it’s either gloves all day or hamburger hands. But gloves don’t protect your forearm and rails from damaging impacts and snags on your surroundings. And exposed metal has a way of going ‘clink’ at just the wrong time. The rail covers currently on the market attach to picatinny rails, so if you aren’t running rails, you’re out of luck. And you can forget about comfort in any case, since the covers are all made of hard polymers. They increase the number of edges and perforations that can snag, while leaving portions of the forearm unprotected and doing nothing to promote sound dampening.

BLack Forearm Skin on Black Rifle Length Quad Rail

After years of hunting with AR-15s, we thought: “There has to be a better way!” Now there is. Forearm Skins provide a cushioned and insulated layer between you and your forearm, for an always comfortable grip and a streamlined, snag-free profile.

Specifications: All of our skins are 3-4mm thick, but compressible due to their neoprene core, so consider your clearances if you have a scope mounted. All of our Skins are also currently 9” in length. They cover the full length of a mid-length forearm, and partially cover intermediate, rifle and extended length forearms. On forearms longer than 9”, the skin can be positioned to suit the needs of the user in re hand placement and clearance for sling mounts, bipods, etc.

Black Forearm Skins on Quad Rails – Mid Length (Top) and Rifle Length (Bottom 3)

Construction: Forearm Skins are designed and made in the USA. The rugged ballistic nylon surfaces of our Skins enclose a neoprene core. The Skin is fastened with a color-matched YKK molded tooth zipper and a Velcro tab so the zipper-pull doesn’t rattle or snag.

Installation: If you can work a zipper you can install and remove a Forearm Skin. No tools are required for installation or removal, and the Skins work on forearms with or without rails. The Skin fits snugly around the forearm, and will not shift once installed.

Care: Forearm Skins are washable and will not shrink or deform. Mud, blood, whatever – just hand wash with water (and maybe a bit of household laundry detergent) and drip dry.

Here’s a sneak peek at our PROTOTYPE multicam version (coming soon). The finished one will have FDE trim not black

Bison Armory Shim Set Instructional Video

We’ve created a new instructional video that you can use to help with the installation of Bison Armory barrel nut shim sets. You can purchase shim sets at our web store HERE, which will help you get perfect alignment and torque when installing your AR-15 barrel. Our shim set works with any AR-15 barrel nut that requires correct alignment. The instructional video is featured on YouTube and we’ve embedded it below:

 

NEW: Bison Armory 16″ .223 Wylde Barrels

Bison Armory is now selling our great shooting .223 Wylde barrels on our web store here. These barrels are made from 416 stainless steel, button rifled with 1:7 twist 6-groove rifling, and have .223 Wylde chambers, which means they handle .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO ammo equally well.

Our current offering is a 16″ Recon profile barrel that is capable of MOA performance. Starting at $160, these barrels can’t be beat on price for performance. These barrels are in stock now and ready to ship.

Notes on Bison 6.8 SPC Subsonic

Lob

Just a couple of quick notes on the Bison Armory 6.8 SPC subsonic platform (AKA 6.8 BSP).

1. A 16″ Bison 1:7 twist barrel with carbine length gas will cycle 180 and 200 grain subsonic ammunition WITHOUT a silencer. This includes bolt lockback on the last round in the magazine.

2. All Bison 1:7 twist barrels will handle all commercially available 6.8 SPC ammunition, including SSA Tactical loads.

3. Field testing has shown no difference in accuracy between the 1:11 twist 16″ recon and 1:7 twist 16″ recon. Reports from customers have indicated that the 140 Sierra Game King performs extremely well when loaded supersonic in the 1:7 twist barrel, especially for ranges beyond 200 yards.

4. Shooting subsonic with or without a silencer is fun. Without a silencer we still recommend hearing protection, but simple ear plugs will do, recoil is minimal, blast is diminished substantially, all of which makes it a great back yard plinker, especially for the kids. The only draw back is the ammunition cost of the subsonic rounds.

Conclusion: Go Bison 6.8 SPC subsonic!

6.8 BSP Carbine

Here’s another Bison Armory 16″ BSP carbine. It’s a demo that we loaned to some fine folks at the 68 forums for a member shoot. The carbine is sporting a new 11″ Troy Alpha rail with flip front sight. Pretty slick.

Sunny Day at the Range with the 7.62 / .308 Win.

Our delightfully crappy West Coast spring weather cleared up long enough for us to make it to the range and really put in some quality time testing our new 7.62 NATO / .308 Winchester barrels. The results were outstanding, and we easily achieved sub-MOA results at both 105 and 219 yards. Why these weird distances? No idea. But whoever set up the range obviously wanted to make it just a wee bit more difficult than usual.

At 105 yards, Ben put together the winning group using Federal Gold Medal Match .308 ammunition tipped with 175 grain SMK bullets and measured 0.84″ (measuring the greatest distance between the centers of any two shots in the group).
