“Which WORKHORSE® is best for you”



Choosing a firearm that suits your individual needs in today’s market can be an overwhelming and confusing task. There are so many options and companies to choose from that also offer so many different versions of their product. Here at Battle Arms Development, Inc.®, we want our customers to know that we are here for you and want to make understanding what makes all of our models different extremely transparent so you make the right choice when picking one of our firearms. Here we will outline the differences between each model and the overall specs of each so you can make the best decision on which WORKHORSE® is best for you.



The WORKHORSE® line of firearms were designed from the ground up to be a tool that anyone can count on and delivers performance on demand without worry, hence the name WORKHORSE®. We knew before we even produced a single unit that this gun would have to live up to the name WORKHORSE® in every way possible. So we set out to create a gun that was beyond reliable, rugged, lightweight, accurate, and intuitive in its operation. The WORKHORSE® line features so many of the individual components that set us apart from the rest of the market right out of the box. We wanted to leave “MIL-SPEC” in the past with this gun and create a new baseline standard that proves innovation and out-of-the-box thinking can create something that would not only make us proud to produce but also that our customers would love for the rest of their life.


The WORKHORSE® line of firearms are built on our premium forged receiver set. We cut no corners here with the foundation of the gun. These receivers are not only to exact MIL-SPEC in the areas you would expect but as stated before we wanted to leave MIL-SPEC in the past with a new baseline standard. This can be seen in the subtle details we added to the lower receiver. Features like a threaded bolt catch screw instead of a roll-pin to increase the ease of installation, a threaded takedown pin detent and spring groove to add the option to capture the spring and detent in the rear which guarantees that if the buffer system ever came apart that you would retain these crucial parts, the addition of an upper/lower tension screw to make sure that the optimal fit is had between the upper and lower, and short-throw markings for the selector ensuring that it is always clear whether you are on safe or fire. On the upper receiver, we “notch” cut the 1913 Picatinny rail to reduce unneeded weight and give a clean look throughout the gun. Every single WORKHORSE® is built upon this foundation.
