S.W.A.T. FIREARMS CUSTOM BILLET RIFLE

By Chris A. Choat, http://smallarmsreview.com

S.W.A.T. Firearms Industries is a small firearms manufacturing shop based in the town of Campbell, Texas. The shop only has a handful of employees but is turning out some new custom rifles that are very impressive. The new rifles feature the company’s own billet upper and lower receivers as well as new products that the company is adding to their line. The newest rifles bear the designation of the MSR-15 (Modern Sporting Rifle).Small Arms ReviewThis author was first introduced to the company’s quality products when they were contacted about using one of their billet lowers to be used with a, then new, complete billet upper. The new upper featured quick change barrels and the S.W.A.T. lower complimented the design perfectly. (See the article on Faxon Firearms ARAK in Small Arms Review Vol. 18, No. 1.) During the testing for that article, the quality and fit of their lower receiver and all the associated internal parts was quite impressive.

The company is now producing complete rifles and is offering their guns as custom built creations with the customer picking out the options that he or she wants on their rifle. S.W.A.T. Firearms builds the guns one at a time specifically tailored to their use or mission; whether it is a gun built for 3-gun competition or a gun built for tactical operations. The gun built for this article was done as a 3-gun competition rifle. S.W.A.T. Firearms can source most any parts for a custom rifle or the customer can supply their own accessories.

I chose to let S.W.A.T. Firearms build the rifle with some of their newest parts and options that they supply but I chose to put on a railed forearm of my choosing. The one I picked was the new Samson Manufacturing 15-inch Evolution Keymod rail forearm. This forearm is the latest addition to their railed forearm line. The Evolution Keymod features standard Keymod slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. In addition, the Evolution Keymod maintains the ability to accept standard Evo accessories at multiple angles around the rail through the original’s cut slots. This allows the user the advantage of a much larger variety of accessories while still having cross platform capability where it is needed most. The new Keymod forearm has the same hand feel as its older brother, but is even lighter. The inside diameter, 1.5 inches, is also the same as the first Evo allowing a sound suppressor to fit inside the forearm for short barrels. The 15-inch model was chosen to cover the new gun’s rifle length gas system. The Evolution rail forearms are totally free-floating, attaching only at the rear around the barrel nut by means of a thermal bushing. The units all come with a Mil-Spec Type III black hard-coat anodized finish.

Lee, thank you and your team for making the replacement receiver a possibility for me.  I appreciate all the hard work and diligence you put forth in this matter.  Your attention to detail in getting a new one sent to me does not go unnoticed. Once again, thank you and your dedicated crew.  Semper Fi.  JEFF
