New AR-15s From Head Down Products

AR-15s have been used with rapidly increasing frequency by hunters, but despite the upswing in using them to take down game of all kinds, the majority of AR-15s are made for tactical applications. Head Down Products is looking to change that with their new AR-15 line, Uncle Parvo.

Uncle Parvo rifles have 14.5″ barrels, KeyMod rails, and Gemtech G5 QD muzzle brakes, which are pinned for the purposes of ATF compliance. Better still, they’re both optics and suppressor ready, and given the also-increasing popularity of hunting with suppressors, it’s clear Head Down is covering multiple bases. For example, if you’re on a spot-and-stalk and come across a sounder of pigs, having a suppressor gives you the ability to take down more than one hog, which is great both for damage control and the resulting bacon in your freezer.

These are lightweight, durable rifles built with hunters in mind. Head Down lists them as sub-MOA and says they are backed by a 100% Rifle For Life warranty. Take a look online at MSRP $1299 for the standard model.

    Light weight? Funny, I can't find any mention of its weight. And looking at the pictures, that doesn't look like a light weight barrel. Nor does that pretty upper look terribly svelte. And I would think that for hunting in .223, it should have a full 20" barrel.
