AR with Shotgun Stock: FM Products RANCH Rifle

Foxtrot Mike Products (FM Products) released a new firearm called Ranch Rifle that despite being based on and sharing a lot of features with the AR-15, is quite a departure from the original AR design as it has a bufferless action and uses Remington 870 shotgun stocks! Let’s see what other features the new FM Products Ranch Rifle packs and what options are currently available.

FM Products @ TFB:

FM Products Ranch Rifles have proprietary lower receivers and come with FM Products Mike-15 Gen 2 DI upper receiver assemblies. The 16″ barrels are made of 4150 steel, have .223 Wylde chambers, 1:8″ twist rate, Melonite finish, mid-length gas system, and come with either a crowned non-threaded muzzle or 1/2×28 muzzle threads with a 4-port muzzle brake installed. The aluminum upper and lower receivers along with the 15″ M-LOK handguard are mil-spec Type 3 anodized. The FM Products Ranch Rifles do not have standard AR charging handles, instead, Mike-15 Gen 2 uppers feature a non-reciprocating front charging handle.

To work with the Remington 870 stocks, the trigger guard is moved to the rear of the lower receiver and the Ranch Rifle has a proprietary trigger mechanism with a reversible push-button safety. Besides the FM Products Mike-15 Gen 2 uppers, the lower receiver of the Ranch Rifle is also compatible with Brownells BRN-180 uppers. The Ranch Rifle is fed from standard AR-15 magazines.
