F1 Firearms is on the rise and there’s no telling how high they will go. The impressive Texas-based firearms manufacturer may be small, but it’s already garnering one hell of a reputation. In fact, these popular modern sporting rifles have found their way into the hearts of famed shooters such as Jerry Miculek and Matt Carriker, the man behind Demolition Ranch. To put it succinctly, F1 stands out thanks to its commitment to in-house machining with only the finest, state-of-the-art technology. However, it’s their remarkable simplicity and premium materials and components which is helping them gain traction in the firearms industry. In addition to the 416SS barrels and state-of-the-art barrel cells, you’d be amazed at the quality of their 7075-T6 domestic aluminum components. This provides shooters with lighter and stronger weapons which are capable of holding tolerances up to 0.0001”. I should warn you that while they only manufacture a small selection of firearms, they offer an insane variety of customizations. That being the case, their catalog is practically limitless. So, let’s get things going and take a closer look at F1 Firearms and their best-selling rifles.

Skeletonized AR 15

The F1 Skeletonized AR-15 is the Texas-based manufacturer’s premier firearm and for good reason. These seriously sweet rifles are ideal for competition shooting – 3-gun in particular – but are a great addition to any shooter’s collection. F1 incorporated several low-key features which help make these AR-15’s so well-suited for competition shooting, including a minimized handguard, Raptor charging handle, and a black nitride compensating muzzle brake. Similarly, their flared magwells ensure easier reloads on the move while their fluted medium contour match barrels provide shooters with unmatched dependability and incredible accuracy. To make the skeletonized AR15s even sweeter, F1 designed them to easily run low-quality ammo, accept Magpul mags, and handle all MIL-SPEC patterned parts.

F1 AR15

Although their skeletonized AR’s get all the attention, F1 Firearms also offers pretty exciting AR-15’s that follow a more traditional design. These top-shelf rifles are loaded with premium components that offer shooters a premium shooting experience well-worth the high price tag. While you’ll surely notice the lightweight build, these AR’s are remarkably durable, partially due to their Type III hard anodizing, Forged MIL-SPEC FDR-15 receiver set, and stainless steel barrels. Even if F1 and their AR-15’s aren’t household names, they have established a solid reputation with the right folks in the shooting industry that can back-up the company’s high claims. I’m a huge fan of these guns right out of the box, but I can’t help but appreciate the unimaginable variety and personalization F1 offers to its customers. In addition to a good selection of popular calibers, these AR’s come in a variety of barrel lengths and configurations. Overall, you can rest assured that these rifles will last and continue providing impeccable accuracy and performance.
