A few years ago I was tossing around the idea of making a small line of hand-built rifles for the discerning consumer. This was put on the back burner and forgotten until now. I am re-visiting this idea and looking into it more closely as of late and am working on formulating a game plan. The real challenges are the sourcing of parts, setting performance specifications, and most importantly setting a price point for things. The platform would be the ubiquitous AR/M4/M16 platform as it is by far the most widely supported and popular platform here in the States. (insert “ugh, it’s another M4” comments here). The end result of all of this is to deliver a high-quality, high-performance product to the end user. I’d like any and all feedback from everyone on this forum regarding this question: What features would you like to see or expect from such a product? Let’s assume price is not a factor. I want to hear it all, everything from the rational to the insane. I have my own ideas on what I’d like to see, but that doesn’t matter as much as what the general market wants.
