“Once the weapon is configured, Radical Firearms gunsmith Clayton Schubert hand-assembles all the parts and puts the rifle through a 36-point inspection before test-firing it in-house using 50 rounds. Schubert went to the oldest gunsmithing school in America at Trinidad State Junior College, incidentally the same place I went to the police academy many moons ago. I observed as Schubert assembled and fired my test rifle in an in-house booth marked with a blue line down the middle of the walls. We then drove to a local gun range and fired the better part of another 150 rounds before it was even cleaned or lubricated. I liked the balance of the rifle, the feel of the rail and the Magpul furniture, and experienced zero malfunctions.”
He was, as you can read in more detail on Police One, very happy with the results.
“I don’t care where you work, officers on the street need an AR. The chances of you being out-gunned are fairly high, but barring that, you sometimes have to engage a threat from a greater distance. Most agencies provide officers with this option, but some allow employees to provide their own. I found the Radical Firearms Blue Line to be a great choice to fill this role. The standard rifle is of high quality and at least to the limit of 700 rounds, has been perfectly reliable. Most problems would have been ferreted out well short of this mark. Cops looking for an inexpensive option should check out the Firearms Radical website and build themselves a duty rifle.”
