About Bowden Tactical

Bowden Tactical Started as a Wish List

The gun community was wishing and hoping for a difficult combination of...

✔ Parts Made in the USA
✔ Parts that Function Properly
✔ Parts that Look Cool
✔ Prices that Don't Break the Bank

In 2006, Bowden Tactical turned that wish list into a reality.

We started as a handful of gun enthusiasts at Bowden Manufacturing doing contract work to produce Handguards and Buffer Tubes for a bunch of OEM suppliers. Today, we have become a growing source of affordable AR-platform accessories that are now available in locations across the country.

From fully customizable Handguards and Muzzle Brakes with our Signature Series to our AR10 & AR15 AR*chitect products, we’ve got the parts for both OEM builders and local retailers. Our Team continues our goal to provide high-quality, American-Made products at prices competitive with imports. We want AR Builders (we call them AR*chitects!) to have affordable options and plenty of support to build or upgrade the gun they’ve always wanted.
