CMT Tactical has just released their new .308 Billet Set and they look amazing. CMT Tactical is breaking the mold in more than one way with this new offering. As you can see in the pictures below this new .308 receiver set looks absolutely stunning with its ultra flared magwell, integrated oversized trigger guard and it’s unique lines. Being a billet set means the manufacturer has the ability to create a more unique look than just a standard receiver set.
CMT Tactical’s billet set model names all start with some variation of UHP which stands for Ultra High Precision. If you’re familiar with CMT Tactical’s standard 5.56 billet set you definitely know that this is a very accurate description of the product CMT Tactical produces. They’ve now taken that same precision approach to the .308 platform creating the perfect base to not just a great precision long range rifle but an all around awesome battle rifle. Just looking at how perfect the receivers match up and all of the lines meet perfectly you can tell this is one awesome set.

The new CMT Tactical .308 billet receiver set also breaks the mold when it comes to the notion that all .308 sets must cost a fortune. Despite the Upper and Lower being machined from high quality 7075 T6 BILLET and offering high end features such as a Wire EDM Magwell, Battle Arms Development Short Throw Selector compatibility, Threaded Bolt Catch Assembly and an upper/lower Tensioning Screw, this billet set is actually closer in cost to that of your high end 5.56 billet receiver sets. Rainier Arms will have the first 100 sets of these CMT Tactical .308 billet receivers and at just $498.75 they will sell out fast. If you want to snag a set for yourself, get on the Email Notification list right now at www.RainierArms.com and be ready to click buy when you get the email that they are in-stock and ready to go.
About a month ago we got the exclusive drop on the new Rainier Arms RUC Mod2 rifle. This new rifle is packed full of so many awesome features including an all new KeyMod rail, new barrel, new furniture and more that it really creates a fantastic value. The standard length is 16″ but they also offer an 18″ Rifle Length model for just $55 more. It’s an awesome looking rifle as well.
Now to build even more value into it, Rainier Arms is going to start offering the RUC Mod2 rifle in different Cerakote color options. They are starting out with a new color called Concrete which is more of a Silver or Gray color. There will be additional colors offered soon so if you’re thinking you would like one Cerakoted in a different color it will most likely happen very soon. Check out the new Rainier Arms RUC Mod2 in “Concrete” at the links below.
Midwest Industries should be no stranger to you guys. They’ve been making a ton of AR15 accessories such as rails, complete uppers, sling mounts, etc for a long time and we’ve posted about a lot of them. Recently they introduced their new billet upper and lower and now they’ve introduced their new 7075-T6 Forged Upper Receivers and are offering a great introductory price. These uppers will be available as a completely stripped upper for just $89.95 or as an assembled upper with the Forward Assist and Dust Cover installed for just $109.95. These new uppers can be purchased right now at www.MidwestIndustriesInc.com.
One of the most recognizable AR-15 lowers out there is the Seekins Precision SP223 billet lower. For the most part the uniquely shaped lower is very well received and its uniqueness and quality has contributed to the overwhelming popularity of Seekins Precision parts in general. There are some people who would prefer a more traditional billet lower design though. I think its just that they can’t handle that much sexiness in one lower but that’s just me. Regardless, Seekins Precision has heard the call for another option and will be releasing a very cool looking new billet lower in the very near future called the SBA15.
As you’ve probably already noticed from the pictures the SBA15 lower is for the most part very similar in design to the original SP223 billet lower. It features an ambi bolt release, integral winter trigger guard, flared magwell and similar markings. What is different though is that the SBA15 features a straight magwell which is much different than the curved magwell on the SP223 billet lower.
No matter how you look at it, options are good. You can still buy the normal SP223 billet lower from Seekins and soon you’ll be able to add to your collection with the new SBA15 billet lower as well. Seekins Precision is in the middle of moving to a brand new facility so there is no for sure date when the new SBA15 lower will be available for purchase. They did tell me that if all of the planets aligned just right and things go smoother than usual they could possibly have some shipping by next month but that is probably wishful thinking. You can however get in on their email notification list and be among the first to know as soon as they are available. Take a look for yourself over at www.SeekinsPrecision.com.
We’ve posted about the awesome new BCM (Bravo Company Manufacturing) KMR KeyMod handguard in the past and I know a lot of you have been waiting patiently for them to become available for purchase. Aside from the given quality you’ve come to expect from BCM, one of the things I really like about this rail is that it offers KeyMod slots at all of the 45 degree angles too not just at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. Today our friends over at Soldier Systems Daily helped launch the release of the KMR for purchase as a standalone product for BCM and we figured we’d help spread the word.
They released both a 10″ and 13″ length today. I’m sure many of you are already thinking you want a different length than just 10″ or 13″ which is to be expected. I’ve not heard whether or not they will offer additional lengths but I would be willing to be their will be as production continues. Take a look at the awesome pictures below that feature some awesome KeyMod components from Impact Weapons Components as well as some of our favorite lights from INFORCE.
The Bravo Company Manufacturing KMR (KeyMod Rail)
Manufactured from an exclusive blended aluminum and magnesium alloy, it weighs 30-40% less than aluminum with the same strength properties. Also featuring a proprietary patent pending mounting, indexing and lock up system that mitigates 12:00 rail movement under heat generated from the barrel nut.
Handguard alone weighs 4.1oz for 10″ and 5.5oz for 13″!
Mounting hardware weighs only 2.2oz, for a total of 6.3oz and 7.7oz respectively.
The KMR’s propriety finish was originally developed for the Aerospace industry. It is a plasma deposition process which creates a stabilized ceramic-like surface coating with superior wear and scratch resistance when compared to anodize or even hard chrome. The stabilized nature of the coating means it has a higher corrosion resistance as well, due to the lack of ‘pores’ in the surface.
The KeyMod™ interface system was developed by Eric Kincel (now the Director of BCMs’ product development team) to work in parallel with the current picatinny system. In many applications it will advance modularity past the current 1913 rail system.
The BCM KMR also allows for a larger range of modularity offering 4 different offset mounting positions between traditional 3,6,9, and 12:00 positions.
In the most basic of applications the KeyMod™ system allows for universal modularity between various manufacturers of accessories, and accessory rails. A big win for the trigger puller. As the industry advances the modular accessories will mount directly to the KeyMod™ instead of picatinny, allowing for a lighter, cleaner, and less bulky weapon system.

According to the AERO Precision Facebook page they will be releasing a new Billet Trigger Guard very soon. I know over-sized or winter trigger guards aren’t really anything new but there are a couple of things that I think will make this an awesome option. First, 9 out of 10 people right now go with the polymer Magpul MOE trigger guard which is just plastic. This new trigger guard will be CNC machined from aluminum and knowing AERO will have a great fit with a milspec forged lower. Second, the AERO Precision billet trigger guard will be available in Black (anodized) for just $20 and also available Cerakoted in multiple different colors for just $25 to match up with the AERO Precision Cerakoted lowers. I’m picturing a sweet FDE Cerakoted Upper/Lower combo with an FDE Cerakoted trigger guard, etc. Would make for a really great looking setup. These will be available very soon. Keep an eye out on www.AEROPrecisionUSA.com and the AERO Precision Facebook page.
