Battle Arms Development – OIP Gen 2

Friday, January 25th, 2019


Battle Arms Development’s OIP Gen 2 is on display at their booth, featuring some noticeable changes since its appearance at last year’s Industry Day at the Range. The OIP Gen 2 comes in at 3.8 lbs bare and unloaded, and features a 14.5″, 1:7 twist barrel with a 5.56 NATO chamber, midlength gas system, and a pin and welded Battle Arms Ti THUMPER compensator, bringing the barrel to 16″ in length. Both the pistol grip and forend are constructed of carbon fiber, with weight-reducing lightening cuts, and the later also features M-LOK compatible accessory mounting slots. The receiver set is also aggressively skeletonized, and a majority of the components are made of titanium, including the bolt catch, gas block, bolt carrier, and takedown pins; a fixed aluminum, minimalist receiver extension/stock completes the rifle.

Industry Day At The Range – Battle Arms Development OIP 2.0

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018


A few years back, Battle Arms Development unveiled the OIP ‘Ounces Is Pounds’ rifle, a limited-production AR-15 pattern carbine, designed in concert with Bentwood Gunsmithing to see just how light an AR could be while retaining proper function. At this year’s Range Day, they had the OIP 2.0 at the firing line.

The OIP weighs in at easily under 4 lbs., with a receiver that is further skeletonized when compared to BAD’s already aggressively lightened lightweight receiver set, and the receiver extension is as minimalist as it can possibly be; pretty much a fixed aluminum tube with a shoulder rest for a stock. The barrel, a very slim pencil profile, was noted by the rep as being even lighter than the already heavily lightened dimpled barrel of the original OIP. As you may also notice, the optic, in this case a Trijicon MRO, is supported by a skeletonized mount. True to its name, if there’s a place weight could be saved on this rifle, it was saved.

If you’re wondering how the reduction in weight effected the recoil, it wasn’t bad. .223/5.56 isn’t really a recoil-intensive round to begin with, so even with the reduction in rifle weight, it was still extremely controllable.

The rep at the booth noted that they had enough components to build roughly 50 OIP 2.0s. Despite this, no immediate word on availability.

SHOT Show 17 – Battle Arms Development

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Last year, Battle Arms Development shared images of an AR that could be described as a work of art. The combination of wood and metal caused quite a reaction on the internet. At this year’s SHOT Show, they are showing a pre-production SBR in .300.

Aesthetically, I really like the combination of the Green Cerakote and Wood.  They plan to offer the furniture as stand alone pieces as well as a complete carbine. The wood on the forend and grip are Walnut while the cheekrest on the collapsible PDW stock is coated metal.

NRA – Battle Arms Development VERT Stock System

Friday, May 20th, 2016

The 19.5 ounce VERT Stock System from Battle Arms Development is designed for use with PDWs. It offers a continuous, interchangable checkrest which is made from Carbon Fiber-style Kydex (that means it looks like Carbon Fiber, not that it is). The buttstock itself is made from 7975 T6 aluminum and offers four stock positions. Inside, there’s a new 3.9 ounce ultra compact buffer to work with the shorter lower receiver extension.

NRAAM 2015 – Battle Arms Development OIP

Friday, April 10th, 2015

‘Ounces Is Pounds’ is the design inspiration for Battle Arms Development’s OIP.  


 Some might call it badpre bones. The total weight for the OIP is 3.9 lbs (the rifle in the photo includes optic, mount and magazine) and this is attributed to a combination of design and materials. There’s no magnesium or polymer in the design and the upper actually has a thicker cross section than a mil-spec model.

Battle Arms Development – BAD-EMR Enhanced Magazine Release

Monday, December 15th, 2014


Battle Arms Development’s BAD-EMR is an enhanced magazine release button for AR15/AR10 pattern rifles. CNC machined from billet 7075-T6 aluminum, the BAD-EMR features a “fully solid “V” shaped button face” with horizontal serrations and no through hole. This face is designed to offer ergonomic feel and self-center the index finger as pressure is applied.

Bad-EMR In Weapon

The BAD-EMR features a lightweight skeletonized back to offset the weight from the button face and increased height, bringing it down to the same weight as a standard MilSpec magazine release. It is compatible with all lower receivers which accept MilSpec standard magazine release buttons.

BAD-EMR Multi-Colors

The BAD-EMR is available anodized in the following colors: Black, Dark OD Green, Light Bronze, Red, Silver, and Yellow Lime.
