Ultimate AR-15 Giveaway at SHOT Show
Tactical Solutions – -(OutdoorWire.com)- Manufacturer of top .22 LR conversion solutions, in conjunction with DOWN RANGE Television (www.downrange.tv) will be giving you a chance to win the “Ultimate AR-15” which will be on display at their booth # 8189 at the 2009 SHOT Show in Orlando. The custom .22 LR rifle features a mouth-watering array of top-end parts from companies like Leupold, Crimson Trace, Spike’s Tactical, Magpul, Daniel Defense and Black Dog Magazine.
“We call it the Ultimate AR-15 because it’s just so darn much fun to shoot!” says Tom Hines, Tactical Solution’s New Products Manager. “ARs are great, but ammo prices are not coming down. For the shooter who wants lots of target time, the solution is a .22 conversion unit.”
Introduced at SHOT last year, the Tactical Solutions AR-22 conversion unit is now in full production and available through the company’s network of dealers.
“I’m convinced the AR .22 conversion unit is the must-have AR accessory of 2009,” says Michael Bane, host and producer of the hit Outdoor Channel shows SHOOTING GALLERY and THE BEST DEFENSE and Executive Producer for DOWN RANGE Television. “In filming an episode of SHOOTING GALLERY on the use of .22s in training, we ran more than 2,000 rounds through the Tactical Solutions AR conversions at the NRA Whittington Center. The only reason we stopped shooting was we ran out of ammo, and it got dark before we could get into town to resupply!”
Bane says that since the Presidential elections, literally hundreds of thousands of shooters have joined the ranks of new AR-15 owners.
“The feedback I’m getting is that people are amazed at how easy and how much fun it is to shoot ARs,” says Bane, an “early adopter” of the AR platform, which he describes as “Legos for grown-ups.” “But they’re shocked at how quickly that 5.56 ammunition disappears, and at $250-400 a thousand, a fun day at the range can be painful on the credit card.”
Using .22s for training makes sense, says Bane, because to become proficient with any firearm, you need to shoot it. Tactical Solutions has established itself as the leader in .22 technology, offering superb replacement barrels of the Ruger 10/22, custom top-ends for a number of .22 pistols, an expanding line of .22 conversion units for the 1911 platform (both single stack and standard capacity “wide-bodies”) and now a high quality, affordable AR-15 .22 solution.
Tactical Solutions is unique in that it also manufactures suppressors, and their .22 barrels are available threaded for an external suppressor or with an integral suppressor built in – an ideal indoor training solution or for pest control in states that allow civilian ownership of “silencers.”
The Ultimate AR-15 includes:
- Tactical Solutions AR-22 Conversion with Custom Fluted Threaded End Stainless Steel Barrel (1/16twist) & Tactical Solutions Compensator
- Magpul CTR M4 Carbine Stock & MIAD AR/15 Grip
- Leupold 4x12x40mm AO Mark 2 with Long Range Duplex Reticle
- Crimson Trace MVF-515 Vertical Fore Grip
- Spike’s Tactical Lower Receiver
- Daniel Defense Omega 9.0 Rail
- Black Dog Magazine 25 Round AR-22 Magazine
“We knew the dealers were going to see a lot of great ARs at the SHOT Show,” Hines says. “But we think this is the one they’re going to remember – and want in their stores!”
The Ultimate AR-15 will be given away in a special drawing on DOWN RANGE Television in March. People can enter directly at the Tactical Solutions booth at SHOT or on-line at www.downrange.tv.
