The Beast, a 5.56mm AR from WMD Guns, features a natural, matte nickel boron finish. Along with its desert-tan polymer furniture, this gun has an attractive, unified look. Fully loaded with upgrades and optics-ready, the beast is a real game-changer.
Shooters and gun owners are inundated with a plethora of new coatings and surface treatments, each one the next best thing. Space-age compounds applied with secret alien technology turn any gun into a sniper-quality weapon that you never have to clean and will always work. These treatments go by a host of names—some real, some made up—but one coating that actually delivers on its promise is NiB-X, otherwise known as nickel boron.
WMD (Wynn, Mike & Duke) Guns is an industry leader in the application of NiB-X on firearms and firearm parts and works with several major manufacturers to treat their key component parts. NiB-X is often applied to the parts that are used hardest and exposed to the highest levels of carbon fouling. Several high-end manufacturers coat their ARs’ bolts and bolt carriers in nickel boron because of its inherent corrosion-resistant properties.
Now WMD Guns has introduced an AR of its own, the Beast. All of its metal parts are completely coated in NiB-X for an extremely unique look and feel. This carbine-length AR is a semi-automatic, direct gas impingement system chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO and loaded with a multitude of special features. But it’s the coating that stands out the most. wmdguns.com
