With a BAD556-LW – custom Vader themed rifle in your collection, no one will question your commitment to shooting or to Star Wars. While the market might sometimes seem oversaturated with AR-15 rifles today, the truth is that some companies are still raising the bar. Among those companies, Battle Arms Development (BAD) is recognized by competitive and tactical shooters alike as providing some of the best options out there today. If you want that high level of performance but with a more unique look, this is the place to start.
Starting things out right, this BAD rifle uses a lightweight upper and lower receiver set, which provides tight tolerances and a firm foundation for the other parts. It relies on a mid-length gas system and features a .625 titanium gas block. The black nitride bolt carrier group works with the Carpenter 158 / MPI bolt to provide smooth performance every time. Meanwhile, the Fortis rail and charging handle make it easy to use in the field. Powered by a 16” barrel, it is topped off with an Epsilon 5.56 VG6 muzzle device for better control.
Of course, the real thing that helps this rifle stand out is the custom “Vader” cerakote finish by HILBILLY223. This unique finish will remind anyone of Darth Vader and gives the weapon a much more futuristic appearance. Combined with the minimalist butt stock configuration and ambidextrous controls, you have an easy-to-use and reliable rifle that looks good in the process. In addition to the standard features, this rifle also includes a Fortis short shift forward grip, a Magpul Gen 2 PMAG with matching cerakote, a Magpod, and a Battle Arms t-shirt.
If you are interested in a high-performance battle rifle, but also want to show off your love for Star Wars, this is the perfect option to add to your collection.
