Faxon Firearms – Headspace Matched Bolt/BCG and Barrel

Posted on July 29th, 2016 by ar15news

**Press Release**

(Cincinnati, OH) – Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of factory matched bolts and barrels for all its 5.56 NATO and 300 Blackout Barrels.

Available for order today, anytime a customer orders a bolt and/or carrier with a barrel, the Faxon factory will precision match the bolt to the barrel using custom hardened gauging. As a set, the bolt and barrel are then matching laser engraved as a set for easy identification.

Faxon Firearms Headspace Matched Bolt and Barrel

Matching our famous barrels, Faxon’s bolts are made using only state-of- the-art machining and materials. Bolts are machined from 9310 tool steel, which is stronger than “mil-spec” C158. The extractor is S7 with latest-spec extractor spring system including spring, “Crane” o-ring, and silicone insert. Bolt carriers available as optional add-ons include the ultra-lightweight GUNNER series and the standard “M16” carrier.

“For customers who do not have a set of headspace gauges or a gunsmith available, the factory-matched bolt/carrier and barrel removes all the guesswork from putting together an AR-15,” said Nathanial Schueth, Director of Sales & Product Development. “Further, the laser-engraving ensures that no bolt and barrel are mixed up between rifles.” There is no charge for the factory-matching, laser-engraved serialized bolt and barrel service. Orders only apply to in-stock barrels and bolts, with lead times generally only a week after order. Dealers and OEMs are encouraged to explore the service as well.

-9310 Tool Steel Construction (Stronger than C158)

We truly appreciate customer feedback, and a lot of our current and future designs include much consideration from the input of our customers. Although we love to push the limits of innovation in our designs, our products would be nothing without the operators input. “

Great Initial Results From The CBI 20″ .308 Match Barrel

Posted on July 28th, 2016 by ar15news

The other day I took some time to start sighting in my new 20″ .308 upper I just built for my FALKOR Defense rifle. Shot this awesome 100yd 3-shot sub-1/2-MOA ( .4935″ ) group with a 20″ Criterion Barrels match barrel. I realize it is just a 3-shot group but I’m very impressed so far. I was shooing some PNW Arms 175gr “Sniper” Match 7.62×51 ammunition. I had a few other really nice groups but this was my last and tightest group of the day. I only have room for a 100yd range on my property but my buddy has a 500yd gong that I think I need to ring with this baby.

Daniel Defense DDM4ISR Integrally Suppressed 300BLK Rifle

Posted on July 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Black Creek, GA – July 20, 2016 – Daniel Defense, manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, has taken suppressed weapons to the next level with the release of their new DDM4ISR rifle. This new rifle, designed for fulltime-suppressed fire and optimized for the .300 Blackout cartridge, features a fully integrated suppressor attached to its barrel, so it’s ready for suppressed service right out of the box.

DD ISR Integrally Suppressed Rifle 1

“This revolutionary rifle simplifies suppressor usage by eliminating variables and uncertainty,” said Daniel Defense VP of Sales Bill Robinson. “There’s no need to attach a suppressor and wonder if it’s mounted correctly and properly aligned. And no need to re-zero the weapon for suppressed vs. unsuppressed fire. The suppressor is literally part of the barrel.”

The high-performance suppressor—constructed of durable, heat-resistant metal alloys and coated with a protective high-temperature Cerakote-C finish—features a user-serviceable baffle core that can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. It is permanently attached to a 9-inch Cold Hammer Forged fluted barrel with a target crown for superb accuracy and reliability. Because the suppressor is a permanent part of the barrel, extending the barrel to the NFA-required 16 inches, the firearm is not classified as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) and only requires a single tax stamp, for the suppressor.

DD ISR Integrally Suppressed Rifle 1

Everything else about the DDM4ISR is classic Daniel Defense. It features a pistol-length gas system and comes standard with an MFR XL 15.0 modular handguard, which features a continuous 1913 Picatinny rail on top and Keymod attachment points at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. This longer handguard, in conjunction with a DD Buttstock and Pistol Grip, make this ergonomic rifle highly maneuverable and as versatile as the .300 Blackout rounds it fires. A resilient Mil Spec + Cerakote finish protects the rifle from the elements and adds to its overall aesthetic.  

DD ISR Integrally Suppressed Rifle 2

Available in states where suppressor ownership is legal, the DDM4ISR has an MSRP of $3049.00 Learn more or purchase this rifle by visiting danieldefense.com or an authorized dealer.

SLR Rifleworks Titanium Hybrid Linear Comp

Posted on July 20th, 2016 by ar15news

Looks like SLR Rifleworks will be introducing a new muzzle device soon. Over the past week or so they have leaked 3 photos showing a new product called the Titanium Hybrid Linear Comp. From the photos it appears to feature a solid Titanium body that, like other linear comps, is designed to force the concussion from each shot forward away from the shooter or anyone standing near that shooter. It also incorporates an end cap with ports. Not a ton of information is available just yet. For now all we can say is, it looks awesome and is something we will keep an eye out for. As soon as more info is available you can bet we’ll be sharing it here on AR15NEWS.
