Service and Repair

ower Receivers in production at the first inspection stage

At AR15.co.uk we have had many years experience in servicing, fixing and manufacturing firearms and even more years in shooting and competing in National and International competitions. We know that sometimes firearms just don't work or parts wear out or even break. From a replacement spring to a new barrel we are available to help get you back on the range and shooting straight.

A sample of our services

Air bottle refill
At the moment we can only get bottles refilled if you leave them with us. As soon as our compressor is up and running we will be able to fill bottles while you wait, larger ones will take longer. We have a full 300Bar available and prices vary depending upon the volume required, starting from £3.00 for a rifle fill to £15 for large 12L cylinders.
Rebarrelling
If your barrel is 'shot out' or you wish to shoot bullets heavier than your current barrel will stabilise then you will need a new barrel. Generally, the heavier the bullet you wish to shoot then the tighter the twist you require. A 1:9" barrel will stabilise most bullets up to about 75-77 grains but you will need a 1:8" or faster to stabilise the heavier bullets like the 80 grain Sierra or JLKs. We can supply and fit barrels to your requirements either a fast twist stainless barrel or the standard looking Chrome Moly, in the standard HBar or custom profile. Chrome-moly barrels are finished with a black phosphate coating or can be painted.
A common misconception is that heavier barrels shoot better. A barrel doesn't know how heavy it is! A heavy barrel can help reduce felt recoil but is this of prime importance with a .223? A heavy barrel will make a difference, however, when you have to pick it up and run when shooting the fire-with-movement stages in service rifle or practical rifle competitions. We can re-profile those 'bull-barrels' to a more convienient HBar or other light profile.
Side-Charging
conversion
Operating your straight-pull rifle using the standard charging handle can be a pain. It is fine if you are supported and under little time pressure but for general competition shooting it is not ideal (especially if you are right handed) and something needs to be done about it.
We offer two solutions: the charging handle conversion (see below) or the preferred method; to add a side charging handle.
The side charging modification is more invasive then the charging handle modification and involves slotting the receiver and drilling your bolt carrier to accept a new charging handle.
Charging handle
modification
One of the best upgrades you can make to a UK-legal AR15 if you don't want to ruin the profile by slotting the receiver for a side charging conversion is to adapt the charging handle. For those that bought the standard A2 or flat-top receiver and prefer the 'classic' look then a few mods to this essential part are a must. For left handed shooters (or weak-shoulder for the right-handers) then a TacLatch will increase the 'grab area' allowing for a smooth reload without having to fumble for the catch. For right-handed operation we add a knob to make the handle easier to pick up and by pinning (or removing) the latch operation of the charging handle is quicker without the need to unlock it.
Guide price - to supply knob to customer's handle from £25.00, to supply new charging handle with knob from £40.00.
A2 Round Foresight
modification
We can offer a modification service to the standard A2 (square) foresight. With the square foresight you can only adjust the sight in half turns and if the top is sloped you can only use full (or slightly less if required). This will give a better sight picture and with the round cross-section will allow 1.25 MOA adjustments.
This modification can done on your sight post (turn-round usually in less than a week) or supplied as an extra fore-post. Please contact us for further details.
Ceracoating
If you feel your black rifle is not colourful enough we can spray it with Ceracoat, a ceramic paint finish that is baked on and offers a durable and proctective finish. We offer several colours from our stock and many others are available to order in should you require.
Please note that we don't carry all colours but we can order in as you require.
