Here is something I think is pretty nice if you ever have to work on your AR or if you are planning on building an AR. The vise block lets you work on your AR locked in a vise so your gun doesn’t move.
The block is made with a durable black polymer so it will hold up to years of use and is designed after the standard AR-15 .223/5.56NATO magazine and just slips into the mag well and locks in using the rifle’s magazine catch.
I was talking to someone the other night about the AR platform and they were asking my take on the rifle and how far it has come since its introduction into the US military in 1963 and long story short he asked about locking the gun up and after talking a bit about a gun safe he asked about locking the weapon itself up so it couldn’t be loaded with a magazine.
Now this got me thinking about the locks on the market I had seen and most of the ones I had looked at were cable locks and so I figured I would look and see what was out there for the AR and this was one I liked for the shear fact it slides into the mag well and also blocks the barrel from loading of a round.
This is the GunVault AR MagVault Rifle Lock. the price online isn’t bad and I like that is a bright orange so it is clearly visible when the weapon is just sitting there.
