TNW Firearms has introduced a build kit version of their Aero Survival Rifle. It comes as a parts kit which you need to assemble yourself. The receiver of this kit is 80% finished, which doesn’t qualify it as a firearm according to the US legislation.
The kit includes drawings and instructions explaining the process needed to completely machine the receiver. Important to note that the ASR kit does not include the stock, pistol grip and buffer tube. All the mentioned parts are AR-15 compatible. You can either buy them separately from TNW Firearms or install the corresponding AR-15 parts of your choice.
The lower and upper receivers, as well as the barrel nut of the kit, are unfinished. The drawback of the absence of a finish is that you’ll have to apply one unless you want to leave it unfinished. However, the good thing is that you can apply whatever custom finish you want.
The TNW Firearms ASR Home Builders Kit comes chambered in one of the following calibers: .22LR, 9x19mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, 10mm Auto and .45 ACP. Barrel lengths are 16.25″ for all the calibers with 1:10 twist rate for the 9mm and .357 SIG, and 1:16″ for the rest of the calibers. The .22LR version takes Remington Model 597 magazines and the rest of the versions are fed by Glock magazines. Regardless of the caliber choice, the kit costs $375.
