Out of everything we saw at SHOT Show 2015, the Angstadt Arms UDP-9 was the overall favorite. The UDP-9 is an AR15 chambered in 9mm. It is fed by Glock magazines via a custom aluminum lower. The custom aluminum upper has some tricks up its sleeves, too. I have not gotten to shoot the UDP-9 […]

Radical Firearms 7.5″ 5.56 AR15 Upper First Impressions Review

THIS. IS. MY. BOOMSTICK!! That’s what I thought as soon as I fired the first 5.56 round out of a 7.5″ barreled AR15.

Putting an AR15-style buffer tube on a non-AR15-style firearm has always been a contentious topic. I’ve written and stated several times that I didn’t know if it was okay to do or not, despite several retailers and manufacturers putting AR15 buffer tubes on AKs, MP5s, handgun enclosures, and many others. Finally the ATF responded, and […]
