    Alpha Dog survival of the breed

    Just bought a new pistol grip for my AR-15, the grip has a compartment that has a slide shut lid. So I got to thinking about it and decided to make a survival kit that would be with my rifle all of the time. This is a list of what I was able to get in the compartment
    4 #4 fish hooks
    4 sinkers
    12lb test fishing line
    6 water/wind matches and strike side of the box
    1 wire saw
    4 pks of 2 water tabs
    button compass

    Not much but could make a bad situation a little better.

    I would add an extra firing pin for your AR in there if it will fit. I keep extra lithium batteries in my compartment.

    I was thinking about that I also have a small punch, flat scew driver and a phillips head short with flat handles. I carry my extra batteries in my front grip.

    I've also been looking at this Magpul stock with a small storage compartment: ACS™ - Adaptable Carbine/Storage - ACS™ Carbine Stock – Mil-Spec Model

    It's not huge, but you could probably fit some maps & a compass, cleaning tools, or other similarly sized objects in there.

    I just bought a stripped DPMS lower for $125 out the door (no paperwork), so I think an AR will be my next project.
