The Top 5 Most Customizable Guns



Feature | The Top 5 Most Customizable Guns

The market produces so many customizable guns to give firearm enthusiasts more to think about. Some changes not only enhance a gun’s functionality but also gives it a badass look compared to how it came out of the box. If you’re fond of accessorizing your firearm, then go ahead and do so to your heart’s content. Feel free to customize your own handgun or any firearm as you desire! Just keep in mind that because there is an accessory for a gun, it doesn’t mean you have to bolt it on. I prefer just having upgraded iron sights or an EOTech and a light on an AR-15. These customizable guns are known for having numerous aftermarket and replaceable parts like triggers, sights, stocks, you name it!

CYTAC Mossberg Shotshell Carrier | Compatible with models: Mossberg 500, 590, 590DA 12GA Shotguns
  • Mossberg Shotshell Carrier - Compatible with models: Mossberg 500, 590 & 590DA 12GA Shotguns.
  • Carry Additional 6 Shots - The Mossberg 500 and 590 shotguns are great but the one thing that is annoying about most shotguns like these is their low ammo capacity. The 6-round carrier is a good choice to bring additional shots.
  • Each to Reach - Whenever you want to put a few more shells into the chamber of your shotgun, you can just reach to the side of your weapon and pull out another shell without your other hand having to lose its grip on the handle.

There are more people in the aftermarket 1911 gun parts industry than any other gun, including the AR-15. It is also one of the first guns to ever be customized with high night sights, beavertail grip safety, and forward cocking serrations.

  • Custom foam is closed cell polyethylene & meets Mil-Spec packaging requirements. Included is a variety of perforations to fit a wide range of optics (within 3.7" height) along with under barrel or over barrel attachments such as lasers, flashlights & foregrips. Use the included razor blade to connect the perforations so you can accommodate your unique rifle setup. If you do not need to remove a specific perforation, leave it in place and it won’t accidently tear nor will you be able to see it.
  • Case comes with a small waterproof accessory box that has a designated cutout to store small items. Also included is a reusable moisture removing silica gel canister to prevent gun rust. The canister has a built in viewing window that notifies you when saturated at which point you can recharge it by baking it in the oven. Once baked the canister will be ready for use again. This recharge process can be done indefinitely. Your climate & rifle usage will dictate how often a recharge is required.

In addition, most AR-15s come with a flat top upper ready for accessorizing. One accessory you want to have is the B.A.D. Lever, which allows you to drop your mag and close the bolt with one finger. It is unbelievable how many accessories you can equip this firearm with!

    Good list, and no argument. I do have to say that while working in Iraq as a private security contractor, I saw a lot of really nice AK customization work. A lot of the South African guys used AKs and they did a lot of work to customize everything from stocks to rails to sights and internal components so it should get an honorable mention.
