Billet Templar Custom for sale

Written By: Bob - Dec• 13•12

I’ve mentioned several times before my affinity for Templar Custom AR-15 rifles. I wrote about the Templar MCWS for Shooting Illustrated, and was impressed enough to pick up one myself.

While I didn’t have the cash to go all Victor Kiam and buy the company, I did just sign on to rebuild their website and work on their social media (consider this my disclosure and statement of complete and utter bias).

There is now a rare Templar in SPR configuration on Gunbroker if you want one of the best precision ARs built.


Specs are as follows:

  • Hand fitted 7075 billet (not forged) upper and lower receivers.
  • Very low serial number (#2).
  • 416 stainless steel match grade 16” fluted barrel.
  • 5.56 Wylde chamber. Barrel twist is 1 in 8”.
  • Templar guarantees their rifles to shoot 1 MOA or less with quality ammo.
  • Retro style three prong flash hider.
  • Magpul ACS mil-spec buttstock with QD sling point.
  • Magpul MBUS dark earth front and rear sights.
  • Geissele Super Three Gun trigger.
  • Badger Ordnance Tac Latch.
  • Troy Ind. ambi QD sling adapter for single point slings.
  • Templar 12.5” FastRail included.
  • Duracoat finished six color “Carolina Cam” pattern


There are more photos at the link. Expect to drop the kind of coin you would on a hand-fitted custom precision firearm.

Bidding starts at $2,499.00.
