Freedom Munitions announced this week the Seekins Precision GI AR15 is now available on its website.
The new carbine is the result of a new partnership between Freedom Munitions and Seekins Precision. Both are located in Lewiston, Idaho.
This is the first time the gun parts- and-ammunition store has offered a complete firearm for sale. It’s an AR-15 chambered in 223 Wylde, named the Seekins Precision GI.
Freedom Munitions’ business strategy is to deliver a good basic product at a good price. The marriage of that mission with Seekins Precision results in the GI being marketed as “everything you need, nothing you don’t, for under a thousand dollars.”
The Seekins Precision GI has a 16-inch barrel with a 1:8 twist. It’s coated with Armorblak. Over it is a 12-inch Seekins Precision MCSR M-LOK free float handguard. At the business end is an A2X flash hider with 0.5×28 threads per inch.
Operation is made user friendly with an ambidextrous safety and oversized trigger guard. The trigger is mil-spec. Mission First provided their tactical minimalist model buttstock and pistol grip.
Inside is an M16 bolt carrier group. Included in the new rifle package is a 30-round magazine and a hard plastic travel case.
Current price on the Seekins Precision website is $950, apparently including shipping to a local FFL.
