New AR Accessories Coming from Frank Proctor

Frank Proctor released some photos and details of his latest rifle. In those specs are a couple of surprises including a new light mount, bolt release and muzzle device made by Troy Industries, he’ll be releasing soon

Here are some pics of my new blaster at the range. I put this rifle together as a do everything rifle. I wanted fast and accurate from the muzzle to as far as I could work with the ammo and wind. ( I’ve shot to 900 with a set up similar to this)

I needed it to do EVERYTHING well but be as light as possible. This one weighs in at 7 pounds 3 ounces as pictured (minus ammo) Also worth mentioning this is on one of my rifle ranges. the big berm in the back is 300 yards and the paper target is at 10 yards. I zeroed this rifle at yards using my technique of getting a 200 yard zero at 10 yards. I wasn’t sure how well this would work with a 6x optic due to parallax but it worked like a champ. After I zeroed in about 6 rounds ( brand new scope, mount and rifle) I shot everything on this range including 6” plates at 300 from this rock. My Way of the Gun rear bag did help the stability a bit!

Here’s the components list on this rifle.
-BCM upper with 12.5” stainless midwest bbl and 10” KMR rail, BCM mod 4 -Gunfighter charging handle
-Tennessee Arms Polymer Lower
-BCM Gunfighter Stock
-BCM Gunfighter mod 2 pistol grip
-Geissele SSA trigger
-Vortex Razor HD Gen 2 – 1x-6x
-Aeroprecision light weight mount
-Troy Battle mag (only ones I’ve used since 2012)
-Proctor Sling
-WOTG rear bag

    PT1L on a rifle? I love it.

    It’s my daily pocket light and the idea of putting it on a lightweight rifle is awesome.

    • mike says:

      any idea if that picatinny mount pivots on that bolt? it almost looks as if I could add one of these to the one I carry every day and give it the ability to click into a rifle. That’s something I would throw cash at.

  2. TCBA_Joe says:

    Frank, if going for a LW rifle, then why a full quad rail?

  3. Luke says:

    That light mount…damn. There are a lot of awesome light mounts coming out these days but that is pretty high on my short list.

  4. Love that Vortex/Aero combo.

      +1,000 that’s the first thing I noticed. Will definitely research that and compatible BUIS (MBUS Pro Offsets, perhaps?)

  5. DangerMouse says:

    He SBR’d a polymer lower? Very interesting choice…

  6. Alex says:

    Vortex is a bit heavy if you’re aiming for a light as possible LW rifle, no?

    • straps says:

      Cut him some slack. Obviously cobbled together with what he had laying around. And his manufacturing partners.

      Like how the rest of us start builds with sights or scopes from the big box sporting goods counter.

      Also, good to 900. To be sure 75% of that is software but that hardware sure doesn’t hurt.

  7. Scott says:

    Frank,

    I like the concept. What kind of accuracy are you expecting out of the platform? More specifically, what is your intended ammo choice?

    As far as the comments about the optics being heavy- I agree. However the tradeoff for consistency and reliability is weight. It seems like he tried to cut weight everywhere else, but the optic. I wouldn’t skimp on that either.

    Frank

    Why did you decide to run the QD for the sling on the rear instead of 550 cord?
