A MagPod is basically a replacement floor plate for your Gen 1 and Gen 2 Magpul PMAGs. This upgrade creates a stable platform to aid in using your magazine as a monopod while shooting in the prone without the need of a bipod and can also help you with shooting off of alternative surfaces such as rocks or slippery surfaces. As you can see in the photos below it creates enough of a stable platform that it can help the rifle stand up on its own.
I know we’ve all seen pictures of AR with MagPod’s on them for quite some time but up until these last few days they have not been available for purchase. MagPod has a network of dealers and some of them started taking pre-orders on them last week. My buddy over at VF Gunrunners has them in-stock and ready to ship at probably the best deal going on these. He’s offering the 3-pack of MagPod’s for just $19.95 with FREE SHIPPING at www.VFGunrunners.com.
I’ve also included the MagPod Dealer list below in case you have your own favorite retailer. I did notice that not all of them have the MagPod up on their website though.

Battle Arms Development has released their new BAD-EMR (Enhanced Magazine Release) just in time for the holidays. The BAD-EMR is a magazine release button that has been machined from a solid piece of 7075-T6 aluminum.
It does not have the typical hole all the way through it like your standard magazine release button does which allows it to stand a bit taller. The face of the BAD-EMR also has been modified with a shallow V-shape that helps center the finger on it as well as horizontal grooves that give you good tactile feedback as well as add a grippier surface for ensuring activation of the mag release. On the back of the BAD-EMR you’ll also notice there are two small machined holes that help make it a bit more light weight.
Precision CNC Machined for billet 7075-T6 Aluminum (not 6061) with an anodized finish, the BAD-EMR features an unique, fully solid “V” shaped button face with horizontal serrations (no thru hole).
The concave V-Groove button face offers excellent ergonomic feel and self-centers the index finger as pressure is applied. The horizontal, parallel serrations helps slippage in the vertical orientation while minimizing drag in the horizontal direction for finger retraction.
The BAD-EMR also features a lightweight skeletonize back to offset the weight gained from the fully solid button face and slightly increased height to equal the weight of the standard mil-spec magazine release (approxmiately 0.002 lbs). BAD-EMR is compatible with all lower receivers that accepts mil-spec magazine release buttons.
*Product developed in conjunction with Forward Controls Design
The BAD-EMR is available in 6 different colors and available now for just $6.75 each. Head on over to www.BattleArmsDevelopment.com to purchase a few for yourself and check out all of their awesome new products while you’re there.

If you’re a SureFire flashlight nut, you’re gonna love these new light mounts from S&S Precision. S&S Precision has just introduced the new IFM or Integrated Flashlight Mount for use with your existing SureFire lights. These basically replace the light body (battery housing) using your flashlight Head and Tail Cap. These come in two different models, the IFM Rigid and IFM CAM. The “Rigid” model mounts like a normal light mount using a single clamp. The IFM CAM uses a wheel to adjust tension and a cam lever that tightens and locks the mount on the rail for a tool-less installation. Check out the details and pics below then head on over to www.SandSPrecision.com.
S&S Precision IFM Rigid Light Mount
The Integrated Flashlight Mount Rigid brings the flashlight into a fixed offset position and reduces the overall profile of the forward hand guard.
– Left and right side rail grabbers available
– Power: 3V
– Compatible with Surefire flashlight components (not included)
S&S Precision IFM CAM Light Mount
The S&S team has pursued a more practical way to assemble and attach the Integrated Flashlight Mount-Rigid (IFM) series since day one. This tool-less mounting system provides a low profile offset flashlight body for select SureFire 3v components. Featuring a streamlined cam lever and tension dial, the IFM CAM delivers a touch of simplicity that is long overdue. Adjust your level of tension and snap over the lever for a secure fit.
The Mega Arms MTS or Megalithic Tactical System is a really cool one piece upper that replaced their popular “Monolithic” uppers that they used to make. When the Megalithic version was introduced there were two models, one KeyMod and one Quad Rail. For some time though it seemed that Mega Arms would not be producing the Quad Rail version due to the popularity of the KeyMod version. After tons of people requested that Mega Arms make the Quad Rail MTS upper they realized that there was enough demand for it to make that happen. Starting next week, Mega Arms will begin shipping their new Quad Rail MTS uppers and they look awesome.
The MTS uppers look fantastic paired up to a Mega Arms billet lower but will work great with any forged or billet, mil spec dimension AR-15 lower receiver. All MTS uppers also come with a proprietary barrel nut and barrel nut wrench. If you’re looking for an ultra-rigid upper/rail setup, this is it. Check out the complete list of dealers at the link below. I’ll be waiting for RainierArms.com to get them personally.
LANTAC has just joined the long list of companies who are offering a muzzle device shroud that redirects the blast associated with using a muzzle brake. I like that LANTAC took the design at least one step further and created openings on the top of the shroud that correspond to the top ports of the LANTAC Dragon brake which allows the brake to fight muzzle rise even while the shroud is installed. They’ve also designed a different QD attachment system as well. Probably the most notable feature is the fact that it works with the LANTAC Dragon which is widely considered one of the best brakes on the market. Also shown in these pictures is there new SPADA rail. These products will be available early 2015.
LANTAC BMD, Blast Mitigation Device. There have been many derivatives of the first blast shield designed by Simplistic Shooting Solutions and or Kineti Tech years ago. Including QD attachment systems and diffuser holes as seen in Ferfrans and the Spikes Tactical HVS designs. With Gemtech, Griffin and MMC also fielding good products. The BMD is our take on this type of device, with a few changes from our original concept that was tabled at the time we designed our Dragon brake.
One of the most important features for us was vertical porting that would allow the Dragon brake to continue to shoot as efficiently as it does without compromise. The other was gas flow direction and turbulence. Internally the BMD features an angled shoulder that allows gas to flow smoothly into the diffuser sections of the outer cylinder and also across the many teeth at the opening. The diffuser holes are also strategically position at the sides and top of the BMD but NOT the bottom, this also assist in muzzle climb management, its the same principle as found in the A2 compensator.
The BMD is also retained by 2 spring loaded catches on either side, so can be ‘stripped’ forward from the brake very quickly if required.
LANTAC has been releasing a ton of new products lately and they seem to just keep getting better and better. Be sure to check out the LANTAC Facebook page as well as their website www.LANTAC-USA.com for a complete list of LANTAC products.

Magpul recently introduced their new MS1 Padded Sling. The MS1 Padded Sling by itself is an adjustable 2-point sling with a wider padded section of webbing towards the middle that does not come with any attachment points other than the webbing. IWC has taken the Magpul MS1 Padded Sling to the next step by adding their patented 2-To-1 Point Triglide and two (2) Heavy Duty Push Button QD Swivels to the sling making it the complete package. With this setup the user can easily use the sling as a 2-point sling or attach the front QD to the 2-To-1 Point Triglide and use it as a Single Point Sling.
