ARES Armor

Ares Armor is a habitual line stepper:

^ the “not a suppressor lookalike with suppressor looking guts”.   Sig Sauer is currently going through a re-classification battle with the ATF over a similar suppressor-looking-muzzle-brake product on their MPX rifles.  I don’t know how this is going to turn out, but I know the ATF isn’t naive enough to think the dimensions of this Ares Armor muzzle brake aren’t conveniently the same diameter as a mag light sleeve, or a certain brand of solid handguard…. because I’m guessing that’s the case.  Hardened steel though would make for a damn heavy end of barrel item no matter what.

In an abundance of caution we have added anti-tamper features to restrict the ability of one to misuse this product.

Cool small metal posts bro. haha

Ares-Armor-Suppressor-Baffles-Muzzle-BrakeI really don’t know if things like this are good or bad for gun laws… what are you thoughts?

Are you buying one?

Clear-80-percent-Lower-ar15-ReceiverI can tell I like the cut of Massie’s jib, however LOL at the ATF ever destroying that list.  Like that’s going to happen.  Sure they might “destroy” it, but I can’t see them ever actually destroying it if you catch my drift.  If you missed the whole ARES Armor debacle you can catch up at the link.

YouTuber TheRealTrippleB with a great video:

TheRealTrippleB-YouTubeDamn when someone is that good in front of the camera, puts that much effort into editing, and that much effort into making the video look so clean it’s so refreshing.  He had a lot of good things to say too… and the video was funny which automatically wins points from me.  His beard is legit too, so bonus points for that.

If you need to get caught up on the ATF Ares Armor raid follow that link.

I still see some buzz around the internet that the 80% lowers were somehow “illegal” because of the steps taken in the manufacturing process.  I really hope that’s not the case, because if it is that’s a pretty large oversight on behalf of the manufacturer.



Crib notes:

ARES Armor sold around 5000 80% AR-15 Lowers… ATF wanted customer names (because California?).  ARES SAID piss off… then this happened on March 15th:

Yea they got all up in ARES Armor’s ass alright.  Ouch.

Deal-With-ItSummary: ATF will do whatever it wants to do.  Deal with it bros.

Some pictures and more information over at Dailymail.

I didn’t even realize they were in Oceanside, CA.  I was there with my family this Christmas a few blocks away.

Vigilant Spectre weighs in (not a fat joke because he’s actually quite trim now):

Assault-Rifle-Because-I-Am-BlackNot looking into the camera is so artsy, I love it.

Spectre is wearing the Restricted LE/Gov Use Only t-shirt from ENDO Apparel.

So what’s the deal guys… is this going to end well for ARES Armor?  For freedom as a whole?


The Rapid Armor Deployment Pack is intended to allow one to become a true Sheepdog. You can go from being an average unnoticed citizen and in under 2 seconds deploy a full armor system with a weapon giving you an unexpected advantage over would be shooters or assailants.

My eyes rolled so fast it hurt when I read “Sheepdog”… regardless, this looks very high speed low drag.

It’s available for only $229 on the Ares Armor website (HERE).  No plates of course, but that still seems like a pretty decent price.
