This week the team at Big Tex Ordnance is excited to showcase several products from top manufacturers that are now in stock and ready to ship. Whether building a new rifle, upgrading an existing setup, or outfitting your gear, check out few of our favorite pics.

Hodge Defense Barrels

Hodge Defense is renowned for their duty-grade rifles and components that stand up to hardcore use. We have both 16” and 12.5” barrels featuring Hodge’s signature attention to quality and detail. The Hodge Defense 16″ 5.56mm carbine barrel sits at the heart of the Hodge AU Mod 2 rifle system, optimized for exceptional performance with M855A1 ammunition. Made from proprietary FN steel, the same ultra-durable alloy used in M249 saws, these barrels are built to Hodge’s exacting specifications. They feature a midweight profile close to Government dimensions, 0.750″ gas journal, chrome lined phosphate coated bore, 1:7 twist rate, M4 feed ramps and a standard mid-length gas system specifically tuned for running M855A1 rounds up to 62,000 PSI. M855A1 provides more consistent terminal effects and barrier penetration over range compared to previous ammo. If you demand the utmost reliability from your rifle, trust the Hodge Defense 16″ 5.56mm carbine barrel to deliver when it matters most. Proudly made in the USA.

VLTOR designs specialized rifles and components for military teams across the world. Their new MUR-1S upper receiver maintains VLTOR’s bombproof durability while shedding weight. This innovative upper includes an enhanced M-LOK handguard with a cutout shield to allow mounting more accessories. Despite weighing less than previous models, the MUR-1S keeps VLTOR’s legendary strength and rigidity. The rigid VLTOR MUR upper for AR15/M16/M4 rifles and carbines provides a thicker Mil-Spec wall for enhanced strength, accuracy, and reliability while extending component life. Click here to get some VLTOR in your life.

Made from 7075 T6 aluminum machined and finished by hand, it features M4 feed ramps, dry film lubed bore, and MIL-A-8625 Type III Class 2 hard coat anodizing. The MUR-1A has a deflector and forward assist, the MUR-1S a one-piece deflector only. Do not remove the pinned shell deflector to maintain the VLTOR lifetime warranty. All parts are precision machined in the USA for unrivaled quality with Mil-Spec compatibility. The MUR’s reinforced design makes a noticeable difference.


One of Chris’ favorite optics is the Vudu 1-10×28 SR5 first focal plane scope from EOTECH which delivers impressive clarity and intelligent reticle design perfect for close to medium range use.

The Vudu 1-10×28 first focal plane riflescope from EOTech brings tenacious durability, crystal clear optics and intelligent reticle design perfect for close to medium range use. Its one-piece 34mm aircraft grade aluminum tube and integrated throw lever system allows for fast magnification adjustments from 1x to 10x. The illuminated, glass-etched SR-5 MRAD reticle incorporates an iconic EOTech center dot encircled by a ranging/holdover speed ring, along with a Christmas tree style grid with 0.25 MRAD precision dots for refined windage/elevation holds, especially at long range.  Save huge when you combine it with a Badger mount!

With 0.1 MRAD adjustment per click, 15 MRAD per rotation and 29 MRAD total elevation travel, the Vudu offers ample dialing capacity for various calibers and situations.
