    The flattest, smoothest shooting rifle I own. The fit and finish are great, the Tungsten Cerekote job is outstanding. The Type-A trigger is consistent and has a clean break every time. Type-A rifles are the best kept secrete in the industry.


    After owning the BG Defense, Type-A 10.5 PRO for over 3 years and running over 25K rounds through it, I can say with confidence, this is a blaster that everyone needs in their arsenal. It’s not a picky eater, (even though the fellas at BG Def hate what I’m about to say) out of those 25K rounds, nearly half of that has been steel cased from Wolf and Tula (55 gr.) and it has performed flawlessly. Not a single issue. And here’s the thing, it’s not over gassed at all and I have recently been running suppressed with the OSS HX-QD556. It has an adjustable gas block which is a huge benefit. Even though it comes tuned pretty much perfectly from BG Defense, you have the ability to play with the gas to make it run as soft (or not) as you want. So, after about 2 years of running this blaster, I decided to play with the gas since I’m now running suppressed and it runs insanely soft and smooth, while running steel cased and normal 55, 62,77gr ammo.
    BG Defense machines and assembles all main components in Grand Rapids, MI. Including, but not limited to uppers, lowers, hand rails, barrels, muzzle devices, safety selectors, charging handles, BCG’s, Even the triggers. Which is a smooth 2-stage flat trigger. One thing to note and not to be looked over is, there is absolutely no slop or movement between the upper and lower. If you’ve ever picked up a rifle and felt that little wiggle between your upper and lower, you know exactly how annoying that is. The barrel which is a 416r stainless is sub-MOA and performs extremely well. Easily making 300 yard shots from a 10.5” barrel nice and easy. Plainly stated, as soon as you pick up any of their rifles you can instantly feel the high level of quality and see the attention to detail that these guys are putting into their work.
    From an end user standpoint, I do not baby my firearms. They’re tools and that’s how I treat them. I’ll clean them when they need to be cleaned. Depending on conditions, that could be anywhere from 1-3k rounds. Sure, I could push it past that but, this is also at my bed side and go to rifle, so I want to make sure it will perform at its best. This blaster has been through some nasty weather conditions, subzero temps, snow, thick gritty mud and sand. It’s been banged off barrels, barricades, vehicles, rocks and while you can tell this blaster has been put to good use, it cleans up very well. While I’m not intentionally trying to break this rifle, it’s important to know and be confident in its ability to function and perform at a certain level. I think it goes without being said but, I’m very impressed by its overall ability to handle everything I have put it through so far. I’ve never had a catastrophic malfunction or any issues that caused the gun to go down. Outside of self-induced malfunctions during courses for training purposes, I’ve never had a single malfunction outside of dead primers from bad ammo.
    I have recently picked up one of their ambi billet designs with the slim rail and 13.7” 416r barrel. Needless to say I’m very excited to see how it performs as well.
