This week I’ll be posting some Memorial Day Sales that come into my inbox. I personally don’t mind sharing Memorial Day Sales that are running all week but I refuse to share them on Memorial Day as that is a day or remembrance of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
PSA just announced the beginning of some of their Memorial Day Sales. PSA in the past has had a lackluster reputation because of longer shipping times but if you read their most recent reviews that is an area they have really worked on and I’ve personally bought stuff and been plenty happy with the service. The deals are well worth the wait anyways. One of the first deals they announced is a 16″ Mid Length 5.56 NATO 1:7 Melonite MOE Rifle Kit.
Barrel: 16″ barrel length Chambered in 5.56 NATO, with a 1:7 twist, M4 barrel extension, and a mid-length gas system. The A2-style profile barrel is melonite finished for durability. Barrel is finished off with an .750″ diameter F-marked front sight base with sling swivel, Magpul MOE Black Handguards and an A2 flash hider.
Upper: Forged 7075-T6 A3 AR upper is hard coat anodized black for durability. Featuring M4 feedramp cuts, T-marks, these upper upper receivers are made for us right here in the USA.
Bolt Carrier Group: For AR15 and M16 rifles and carbines. Bolt is made of shot-peened, Mil-spec Carpenter 158® steel. Gas key is secured with grade 8 fasteners and staked. Bolt carrier is parkerized outside and chrome lined inside. Includes Charging Handle.
Lower Build Kit: Includes the PSA MOE Lower Build Kit
Memorial Day Price: $419.99 with FREE SHIPPING
This thing is just $420 and qualifies for Free Shipping through Memorial Day or until they are out of stock. Add in a stripped lower and you’re looking at a Sub-$500 AR build with very good quality components including Magpul furniture and a Melonite barrel. Here is the direct link to this kit. http://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-16-midlength-5-56-nato-1-7-socom-melonite-moe-rifle-kit-7780444.html
If you are on an even tighter budget, they do have a PTAC build kit for about $70 less but it doesn’t have any Magpul stuff, no Melonite barrel and although the reviews are 5 Stars I have heard some issues quality wise regarding the PTAC parts. I would personally recommend the kit at the link above.
Also, I know some will assume I get paid for articles like this but I don’t. I do not know a single person at PSA and almost never write about their deals because they only last for one day. This post is simply telling you guys about a good deal I ran across. Just putting it all out there. 🙂
LANTAC has been working on the new .308 (Heavy) Version of their E-BCG for some time now and they just announced it is now in production. The E-BCG is simply one of the best AR15 BCG’s on the market and now you’re looking at possibly the best AR10 BCG out there as well. Time will tell but I am expecting great things from the E-BCG “Heavy”. Not sure on price just yet but if the price of the AR15 E-BCG is any indicator, it’s not going to be cheap. We’ll keep you up to speed as more information regarding the E-BCG Heavy is released.

I recently purchased a bunch of ammo from Nevada Ammuntion. Specifically I bought their .223 Remington and 9mm remanufactured ammo. So far I have been extremely happy with my purchase. I’ve shot quite a bit of both the .223 and 9mm and will continue to do so but I’ve not shot enough to constitute a review. The .223 I’ve been shooting obviously in my ARs and the 9mm has been run in my Glocks as well as my AR9. Being that I paid for the ammo myself I really don’t want to go burn it all up for a review just yet so I figured in the mean time I would share a review my buddy Aaron over at Sage Dynamics did on the Nevada Ammunition 9mm reman that I have. Aaron is a straight shooter. The product being reviewed is either good or bad and he will tell it like it is.
Very happy to see Aaron has had as good of an experience with the Nevada Ammunition ammo as I have. Everybody wants good quality range/training ammo at an affordable price and Nevada Ammunition is definitely just that. One thing that I thought was worth mentioning is that you don’t have to buy in 1000 round cases to get the best price with these guys. Whether you buy 250 rounds, 500 rounds or 1,000 rounds its all the same price per round. If you’re looking for some quality, affordable ammunition so you can Train Reliably, hit up Nevada Ammunition at www. AmmoNV.com.
Be sure to follow Sage Dynamics at the following links to get lots of great training and review videos every week.

I ran across this graphic on the Geissele Automatics Facebook page today and wanted to share it with you guys. I’ll be the first to admit I have been a little out of the loop on the Geissele Super Precision Scope Mounts but this graphic surprised me as I had no idea they were offering 3 different variations of the AR15 / M4 Scope Mounts. These mounts are basically the same mounts that Geissele builds for the Unites States SOCOM (Special Operations Command) and have been getting rave reviews by those that have had their hands on them so far.
The AR-15/M4 Super Precision series of scope mounts are optimized for use with an AR-15/M4 upper. The mounting surface spans 7 picatinny sections and utilizes 4 shear lugs. These mounts use Geissele’s update of the classic nut and bolt method for clamping the mount to the picatinny rail, which is the most secure method of attaching your scope to your weapon. Each nut and bolt combination provides 1,400 pounds of clamping force, much more than any lever mounting arrangement.
The Geissele Automatics Super Precision scope mounts are available in a Standard, Extended and Hyper Extended configuration with the additional options of 30mm or 34mm ring size, a 20moa built in Cant and your choice of 7075-T6 Aluminum or 2099 Aluminum Lithium Alloy. You can take a look at and order your own here: https://geissele.com/ar15-m4-super-precision-scope-mount.html
You can take a look at the entire line of Geissele Automatics Super Precision Scope Mounts including the Big Bertha and SOPMOD Certified mounts at www.Geissele.com.
