Customization of the AR is one of the platform’s greatest advantages, and following a new purchase many buyers immediately strip off the factory furniture in order to make room on the gun for the equipment they actually want. WMD Guns removes that tedious first step by offering its Ultimate Chassis line, which includes the upper and lower receivers, fire control group, charging handle, barrel and gas tube—but comes without sights, buttstock, handguard or pistol grip—allowing the user to finish the rifle exactly as he or she sees fit. In 2014, WMD introduced its Chassis concept in a 5.56x45 mm NATO-chambered AR, and this year the company is stepping it up a notch with the Big Beast Chassis in .308 Win. All the Big Beast’s components feature WMD’s proprietary NiB-X nickelboron coating process, which provides a tough, corrosion-resistant surface with a low friction coefficient, increased heat dissipation efficiency and easier cleaning.

MSRP: $1,500
