Who We Are

Bootleg Inc. was formed as a sister company of Primary Weapons Systems in 2015, with a sole focus on Direct Impingement (DI) accessories and other custom AR parts for upper receivers. Our goal is to provide quality products and information for anyone that would like to customize their AR-15 with the best AR accessories. We will have a searchable database for frequently asked questions as well as an education center for new and old owners alike. If you have a question that has not been answered about our handguard rail, carrier group, or something else, please let us know.
