Flex Your Guns Photo Contest: Entry #2

| April 3, 2014 | 1 Comments

Our second entry into the Flex Your Guns contest is this 5.56x45mm AR15 pistol from Steve French.


Here are the details:

  • Knights armament SR-15 11.5″ upper
  • URX II rail / integral font sight
  • Completely ambidextrous PWS lower
  • CQB compensator
  • Surefire E1B mounted in a Viking Tactical mount
  • MagPul AFG
  • Raptor charging handle by axts (ambidextrous)
  • Umbrella Corporation Weapon Research Group grip
  • LAW folding stock adapter with Daniel Defense rear end plate w. QD sling socket on a Phase 5 Tactical’s pistol receiver extension
  • Damage Industries D ring QD sling swivel on the end plate
  • Battle Arms Development B.A.D.A.S.S. ambidextrous safety selector
  • Magpul RSA sling mount on upper rail
  • Geissele automatics’ super dynamic combat trigger
  • KNS anti rotate pins
  • Troy Industries ambidextrous magazine release
  • Troy Industries ambidextrous bolt release

There are two things that really stand out to me on Steve’s build — some really high quality parts and the ambidextrous setup.

We train to be bilateral fighters, meaning that whatever we can do with our primary hands / feet we should be able to do with the other side.

This is often done with our handgun and knife training, but we don’t normally see people taking it this far in their rifles. Great thinking.


Keep Steve French’s build in mind when we vote on the top submission on May 29, 2014.


  • At least one photo of your firearm. Send me photos of short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, point defense weapons, SMGs, AR pistols, or any type of firearm that would fit the theme of this blog.
  • Any details about it that you think other readers would find interesting, such as barrel length, important or unusual components, rarity, etc.
  • One reason you love it or hate it.
  • Email photos of your gun to [email protected]

Here are the contest details:

  • Make sure you’re signed up for my email list – and don’t forget to verify your account!!
  • I will choose the firearms to feature each Thursday by myself.
  • You can enter as many times as you want, but once your firearm is featured on a Thursday you can’t submit again for the same contest.
  • Once we hit 10 weeks, the readers (that’s you!) will vote on who wins out of the pre-selected firearms. My own submissions (f any) won’t count.
  • If your photo is chosen by the community you’ll have five business days to email me a picture of the firearm you submitted plus a piece of paper with your email address on it. This is very important to make sure the firearm is actually yours. Our friends in law enforcement may enter their unit’s firearms as long as they can provide the evidence linking their email address to their photo.
  • The contest will end on May 28, 2014.
  • Judging will start on May 29, 2014 and close at 11:59PM CDT June 4, 2014.
  • Winners will get their gift card via email, so make sure you send me your photos from a valid email account that is also on my email list!
