LANTAC USA has just released their new Product Brochure for 2015 which shows a snapshot of their current and coming soon products however I know they have many many more products that they would like to introduce this year too. I can tell you right now I have 2 Lantac Dragons that are just begging for the new BMD to be released and their new E-BCG is a must have and is already in the hands of customers with people raving about it. Other products such as the new UAR billet upper, SPADA rail, Dragon and DrAKon muzzle brakes we already know are out or on their way but I was surprised to see the addition of a 14.5″ Mid Length and 14.5″ Intermediate Length barrels which look to be really nice barrels. Check out some images of the LANTAC USA 2015 Product Brochure below. If you would like to see read the actual PDF click on this link.
Peter Palma, the inventor of the original Ms Clean Kit, is at it again. After already completing his first massively successful KickStarter campaign to create the Ms Clean, which is a Magazine Shaped Cleaning Kit, Peter has launched a new KickStarter campaign for “The Double” which as you may have guessed is a kit that is roughly double the size of the original Ms Clean. The Double allows much more storage capability for spare parts, cleaning supplies and tools all while maintaining its extremely durable case.
Much how the original Ms. Clean can be transported in standard M4 Mag Pouches, The Double will fit in Double M4 Mag Pouches making it very easy to take with you wherever you take your AR. And being that most Mag Pouches attach to Molle or Pals webbing your kit can be mounted to your Plate Carrier or Bag wherever is most convenient.
Head on over to Ms. Clean’s “The Double” KickStarter page to pledge your support. If you want, you can also choose to make your pledge in the form of a donation and Ms. Clean will send kits over seas to men and women in active duty that could use kits right now! Either way, this is a great campaign to support.
This week AERO Precision has their FDE Cerakoted and the Black Anodized Cantilever 30mm Red Dot Scope Mounts on sale. These mounts are “Cantilever” style which means they extend the optic past the base which can come in handy when trying to create some extra space for magnifiers, etc. I’ve actually been using one of these 30mm mounts with an Aimpoint PRO for over a year now and really like it. The FDE Cerakote model is just $67.49 and the Black Anodized model is just $59.99. Pretty hard to beat this deal, especially if you don’t need a QD lever. Get in on this deal while they are still available at www.AEROPrecisionUSA.com
Our Weekly Special is up and features our Cantilever 30mm Red Dot Scope Mount in Anodized Black or FDE. Check it out paired with our M4E1 Upper Receiver, Vortex Magnifier and Aimpoint Pro Red Dot. Shop here: www.AEROPrecisionUSA.com
Just today Faxon Firearms announced it will be replacing their Left Hand ARAK-21 uppers with their new Ambi Ejection Port Window Uppers. Basically that means that all uppers from here on out will all have the ambi window which will allow you to choose between left or right hand eject just based on your mood that day. To switch between left and right hand eject, all you need to do is remove the BCG from your ARAK-21 upper, take out the bolt, rotate the bolt 180 degrees and re-install the bolt and BCG. Faxon Firearms will have bolt on covers that you can install if you want to close off the side of the receiver you are not using. If you currently have an ARAK-21 upper on order with them you can call in and ask them to make sure yours will have the Ambi Ejection Port Window. Another nice thing is that the new feature will not change the standard pricing at all.
Its official TODAY: the ambidextrous window ARAK-21 is now available for order!
There is no additional charge for the ambi window receivers.
Key points and FAQ’s
1. Customers who have orders who have not shipped may change to an ambi receiver by contacting us. It will delay your shipment.
2. We are currently 3-4 weeks ARO due to backlog
3. Covers for either side are in-production. ETA is about 6 weeks. They will need to be ordered separately.
4. The ambidextrous receiver replaces left-hand eject options. We have a few left-hand only available. Contact us for details.

This kit comes with everything you need including a .22lr 16″ barrel, BCG, Charging Handle and Magazine all for just $189.

**Update: I may have gotten ahead of myself here. Apparently I mistook the “Related Products” section where they say Add To Cart as the Add To Cart for the coming soon 5.56 Ambi Sets. I will let you know as soon as these receivers are officially available for purchase.**
One of my favorite products that I’ve recently used in a build is the new SI-Defense Ambi .308 billet set. The Mirrored Ambi Controls are seriously the best thing since sliced bread. Of course as soon as they introduced the .308 billet set the #1 question was….when are you releasing the .223/5.56 set? Well, the wait is finally over! SI-Defense Full Ambi .223/5.56 billet sets are now available for purchase on the SI-Defense website. They feature the exact same Mirrored Ambi Controls that the .308 set which includes the same Bolt Catch / Release lever on both sides and the same Magazine Release button on both sides. Craziest part is the set costs less than many of the other billet receivers sets on the market that aren’t even ambi. Take a look at the pics and then head on over to www.SI-Defense.com

Its always nice to find an inexpensive upgrade for your AR that can actually make a difference in function, etc. Very soon, American Defense Mfg will be releasing their new Enhance Bolt Catch for purchase and it looks like a really nice option that won’t break the bank. It features a larger “Bolt Release” surface and the entire face of the Bolt Catch is textured as well. I just looked and these are listed on the ADM website already which is a good sign that they are close to having them available for sale. Purchase price will be just $16.99 at www.ADM-MFG.com.
**Coming Soon!** The ADM Enhanced Bolt Catch. This is a part compatible with all AR style lowers that use a milspec bolt catch. The enlarged release surface and more aggressive serrations provide the end user with a more positive and dependable part for manipulating the bolt in their rifle. This is the same bolt catch that will be standard on all our UICs, shown on a BCM forged lower receiver.
Springer Precision is very well known for their custom metal base pads for XD’s, Glocks, etc. which can be seen on a lot of 3-Gun competitor guns. Recently they’ve been updating their product list to include models of the EZ-PAD MAX and FASTMAG MAX that now fit the very popular HexMag magazines.
The EZ-PAD MAX is a metal magazine basepad replacement that when installed increases the magazine capacity by 5 rounds. Shown below is the EZ-PAD MAX attached to a HexMag magazine. http://shop.springerprecision.com/product.sc?productId=297&categoryId=21
The FASTMAG MAX is similar to the EZ-PAD MAX except that it is a side by side coupler that mounts two mags together for a rock solid unit. As you can see below there is now an option for a FASTMAG MAX that fits the HexMag magazines. http://shop.springerprecision.com/product.sc?productId=304&categoryId=21
In addition to updating their lineup to fit HexMag magazines, I’ve also hear from a little birdie that Springer Precision will start offering more “tactical” colors such as a dull anodized black instead of the brighter/shinier colors that they are known for so keep that in mind too. You can check out an entire line of products from Springer Precision at www.SpringerPrecision.com
American Defense Manufacturing is probably best known for making some really awesome quick detach optic mounts but they really blew people away last year when they introduced their new UIC or Universally Improved Carbine. The UIC was the product of redesigning any aspect of your run of the mill AR that they felt didn’t meet ADM standards to make a rifle that is “Intentionally Superior”. One of the areas that ADM focused a lot of attention to was the lower receiver.
Not only did they want to make the UIC 5.56 lower look good but they also made it function better. The ADM UIC lower is fully ambidextrous with an Ambi Bolt Catch and Bolt Release as well as an Ambi Magazine Release. They also will work with any Ambi Safety Selector including the Short Throw models that are very popular. The mag well of the lower features a familiar design that ADM calls “reinforcing ribs” that not only look pretty sweet but also make the receiver stronger. People have been asking them to offer the UIC lower stripped so they can add it to their current rifle or start a build specifically around the lower so that is what ADM just did. Starting now, you can purchase the ADM UIC billet ambi lower as a stripped lower. Check out the pictures of it and details below then head on over to www.AmericanDefenseManufacturing.com to purchase one for yourself.
The attractive, billet 7075-T6 lower receiver is outfitted with an ambidextrous magazine release, bolt catch and release, and selector switch. The magazine well features reinforcing ribs that make the magazine well 40% stronger than mil-spec forged at only ½ an ounce of weight change. The trigger guard is ready for winter gloves without manipulation. Radii and chamfers throughout make this billet lower a marvel that stretches the capabilities of modern production CNC manufacturing. A 20 degree competition style mag well is concealed in the design, allowing lightning fast magazine changes. A right side bolt catch and release lever is standard for every UIC lower, a feature not found on many comparable industry offerings. An integral adjuster allows the end user to compensate for tolerance between your upper receivers and your favorite lower. The selector pictogram is compatible with 50-90 degree selectors.
