Rifle hangers are typically an afterthought. You’ve just purchased or built your new AR-15 and have chosen all accessories – or have you? You’ll probably not be carrying your rifle 24/7 and if you’re out in the field, do you have a method of keeping your rifle off the ground?
As a weapon system that is gas-operated, the AR-15 performs best when kept clean and well lubricated. Dirt, mud, and debris can cause a failure to feed malfunction by restricting the movement of the bolt carrier group which can keep it from cycling completely rearward. This prevents a proper ejection of brass as well as the ability to properly feed the next round.
Every once in a while, a safety selector will also lock up or fail. This sometimes occurs from sand, carbon, or dirt getting into your lower receiver. Most of the time, you’ll need to disassemble the safety selector and give it a good cleaning in order to fix the issue.
Ok, but mobile?
Rifle hangers are a means of keeping your rifle off the ground and clean, but what if you’re not at home? What if you’re not at home and you’d like to have a mobile rifle hanger to hang your rifle using whatever you can use in the current environment around you such as a tree limb, nail, wire, rope, etc?
