Cadex Defence Unitized Scope Rings | The Apologizer Build

We couldn’t build a Canadian rifle without getting a part from our friends at Cadex Defence (spelled the Canadian way).

BCL 102 MK7 | Canadian Guns

Black Creek Labs, or as most call them up north BCL, have come up with their newest version of the BCL 102 — the BCL 102 MK7, and it has a host of awesome changes. For those who don’t know, AR-15’s and AR-10’s are range-use only rifles in the restricted category in Canada.

TriggerTech Diamond | The Apologizer Build

Triggers in most guns are a lot like insoles in most shoes to me, they work but could be better… a lot better. I almost always swap out a stock trigger for one that meets my needs and if TriggerTech makes one for the gun it gets one installed. For the Apologizer build I swapped the stock trigger for a TriggerTech Diamond, known for short trigger stroke, low pull weight, no creep, and crisp break.
