I was talking to Mark at Black Wing Shooting Center about what we should raffle off next and said, "We're coming up on the end of the year. Let's do something special. Do you have an elite AR we haven't offered yet?"

There was no hesitation. Mark said, "You want a ZEV. In fact, we have one that's called the ZEV Core Elite. And it has a bronze barrel and a gold trigger." I reacted as you might expect, "Oh, that is so cool."

So here it is, the ZEV Core Elite AR-15 in 5.56 NATO. It features a gorgeous bronze PVD coated 16" barrel, gold ATC flat face trigger with 2.5lb pull, Radian Weapons Talon Ambi Safety, ZEV slide lock ambi charging handle, and ZEV muzzle brake / flash hider combo.

But we don't like naked rifles, so we dressed it up with an EOTech 518-2 QD holographic sight, Meprolight M2D flip up tritium night sights, Blue Force Vickers padded 2-point sling with Fab Defense QD swivels and Magpul M-Lok QD sling mount, and a Magpul 5-slog M-Lok aluminum rail section and vertical grip.

Then we threw in (4) 30-round Magpul Gen 3 PMAGs with 2 Magpul Maglink couplers for quick reloads, 225 rounds of ADI 5.56 NATO 62 Grain XM855 Steel Core ammo with an ammo can, Drago Tactical Double Rifle Case, and a bag of Black Rifle Coffee Beans to make sure you're properly caffeinated and wide awake when you take this elite weapon to the range.

All together, this "elite" prize package adds up to a value of $3,062.
