POTD: Lt. Col. Allen West – BDRX-15 Limited Edition Rifle

Photo Of The Day and this is Lt. Col. Allen West – BDRX-15 Limited Edition Rifle made by Watchtower Firearms. The rifle has a 16-inch chrome-lined match-grade barrel with a .223 Wylde chamber, 1:8 twist rate, black nitride finish and covered by a 15-inch X7M free-floating handguard. Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Allen B. West is a Christian constitutional conservative, combat veteran, and former member of the US Congress.

Here’s the description from Watchtower Firearms:

Allen West’s BDRX-15 is a true one-of-a-kind rifle using a skeletonized upper and non-skeletonzied lower receiver set to engrave his signature, Master Parachutist Badge, and logo. WATCHTOWER’s F1 Precisions Works manufactures this model from high-grade 7075-T6511 billet aluminum for the tightest tolerances to secure a wobble- free fitment and to prevent dust and debris from entering. The bolt carrier group is WATCHTOWER’s Tru-Black PVD coated 5.56 NATO M16 profile MPI tested Durabolt BCG, our most robust, durable, and easy-to-clean coating. The barrel is a stainless steel 16-inch .223 Wylde with a 1:8 rifling twist and has a mid-length gas system finished in a black nitride coating. Surrounding the barrel is the 15-inch X7M free-floating handguard with M-LOK attachment slots at three positions, 4 QD points, and a scalloped 1913 Picatinny rail to reduce weight. Allen West also included Hiperfire’s robust fire control group, the EDT2 Heavy Gunner, an upgraded LE/ SWAT trigger. Lastly, he selected WATCHTOWER’s Flat Face compensating muzzle brake to be incorporated at the end of the barrel, WATCHTOWER’s patented muzzle device to mitigate recoil, finished in a Tru-black PVD coating.

The price is $2,199.00.

What do you think about it? I think it’s a shame they didn’t color the stock as well.

One more alternative? POTD: The Navy Seal Robert O’Neill (NSRO) Rifle.
