While you don’t see them very often, there’s definitely something jaw dropping about an SBR’d AR-10. Our friends at MVB Industries, makers of very well known and popular ARC PDW stock, have just introduced an AR-10 version of the ARC PDW stock. Gotta admit, I wish I had SBR’d one of my AR-10’s now. 🙂 If you’ve got an AR-10, SBR or NOT, and are looking for an option to make it a bit more compact, the MVB Industries ARC stock for AR-10 is a cool new product to take a look at.

MVB Industries, Inc. (MVB) announced they have completed the production of the ARC Stock 7.62 NATO/.308 and that this innovative product is now available thru the company’s website:http://www.mvbindustries.com. Its provided with several buffers options (Carbine, H-1, H-2, or H-3) customizable by the customer to fit their particular needs and desires.

MVB ARC 762.308 PDW Stock 1

Gared Von Benecke, President & CEO of MVB, stated: “By utilizing our patent pending buffer and spring system, that makes MVB’s ARC Stock the premier PDW Stock in the marketplace, the ARC Stock 7.62 NATO/.308 brings the benefits of short overall length and rapid deployment rifle to a full power battle rifle. When collapsed it’s 2 inches shorter than a standard collapsed carbine stock, the size of this rifle platform has allowed for a full 5 inches of extension, resulting in an extended length equal to a Mil-Spec A2 rifle stock. The all-metal construction delivers extreme reliability and durability based on the quality raw materials precision machined to tight tolerances. Aluminum parts are Type III Mil-Spec Hard Anodized with the same specification as US Military rifle receivers. Steel components, primarily high strength 17-4 stainless steel, are heat treated and black nitrided for optimal strength, wear resistance, and smooth operation.”

By now most people are familiar with the LANTAC E-BCG. I personally use it in my suppressed SBR and it is simply an amazing BCG. They’ve been leaking pics of the .308/7.62×51 version for a while now and all of a sudden…the big boys are finally available. Make no mistake, this is not your average BCG and is priced accordingly. If you’re looking for simply the best .308 BCG, this is it. Pics and details are below. 

Lantac 308 E-BCG 1Lantac 308 E-BCG 1

AR10 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time.
Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a 9310 Precision Hard Ground, Magnetically Particle Inspected Bolt.
The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings.
This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 Rockwell C.
The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier.
This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse.
In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.
The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s position within the buffer tube at the time of cycling and allows for a flatter more controlled reciprocation of the assembly.
All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat.
All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360-H™ patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx).
The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver.
The BCG’s weight helps to increase lock time with smoother operation.
Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

The E-BCG’s forward porting and unique shape assist in reducing pressurization inside the upper receiver that can be caused by short barrel rifles running suppressors.
However, it should be noted that the E-BCG™ is not a complete solution for this issue and all rifles are different. ‘Over Gassed’ guns will suffer to a larger extent from this problem.

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.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems recently completed their lineup of FATman and littleBOY Hex Brakes with the addition of the 9mm/7.62×39/6.8 model for both FATman (dual chamber) and littleBOY (single chamber) brakes with 1/2×36 threads. This now brings the total to 6 different muzzle brakes in the Hex Brake series including the 5.56/.223 with 1/2×28 threads & 7.62×51/.308/300BLK with 5/8×24 threads for FATman and littleBOY models as well. 

Phase 5 littleBOY and FATman Hex Brakes

Phase 5 littleBOY and FATman Hex Brakes 1**Not my photo but shows the size of these beasts.**

I have all except for the 9mm model right now and they are actually a very cool muzzle brake. They are on the larger side but at the same time they have a collar that covers a bit of the end of the barrel as you thread them on. They have a pretty stout look too. These are definitely work taking a look at if you’re in the market for a new muzzle device.

Juggernaut Tactical just introduced their new Ultimate Jig. There are tons of jigs out there for machining 80% lower receivers. For the most part all of them are specifically for either the AR-15 or AR-1o lowers and not both. The new Ultimate Jig sets itself apart by accommodating both AR-15 AND AR-1o lower receivers from not just Juggernaut Tactical but also most lowers available on the market. It also has Press Fit Stainless Steel Drill Bushings, an alignment tool to keep your lower in the perfect spot and a depth gauge for the drill bits. 

Juggernaut Tactical Ultimate 80 percent lower Machining Jig 1

After considering everybody’s feedback regarding jigs, we were able to develop our patent pending Ultimate Jig. With this jig, you are now able to build both AR-10 and AR-15 80% lowers. Our alignment tool that ensures the pocket is always centered in combination with our oversized top plates allows for very smooth and consistent finishing. Pair that with our press fit stainless steel drill bushings and included depth gauge, you will have yourself the perfect tool to finish any top-tier AR rifle. The only thing necessary to get your project going is a drill press or a hand drill and router; everything else provided in your Ultimate Jig Kit.

Juggernaut Tactical Ultimate 80 percent lower Machining Jig 1

SPECS
– 17-4 Stainless Steel Drill Bushings
– Patented alignment tool with light
– Depth gage for quickly setting tool length
– CNC-machined from solid aerospace billet aluminum
– Laser-etched with Right/Left markings and drill hole sizes for convenience
– Individually replaceable plates
– Type III hard coat anodized
– Optional high quality tooling package includes all bits required to finish your AR-15 or AR-10 lower.  These are the same bits we use in our commercial CNC machines at the Juggernaut Tactical factory
– If instructions are properly followed, the jig kit can be used to finish up to 25 lowers, or more
– Made in the USA
– PATENT PENDING

Juggernaut Tactical Ultimate 80 percent bit set

Tooling package comes with:
– 1 ea. 0.375″ Cobalt Drill
– 1 ea. 0.3125″ Cobalt Drill
– 1 ea. 0.156″ Cobalt Drill
– 1 ea. 5/16″ Carbide Endmill

Overall this seems to be a very well thought out machining jig. The fact that it works for both AR-15 and AR-10 80% lowers is pretty awesome. Being that it works with both AR-15 and AR-10 lowers I was expecting to see a huge price tag on it but was very happy to see it is priced right in line or less than many of the comparable machining jigs on the market that only work with one or the other. If you’re an 80% DIY’er you definitely need to at least give the new Juggernaut Tactical Ultimate Jig a look.

The Ultimate Jig can be purchased directly from Juggernaut Tactical at www.JTactical.com.

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.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems has recently introduced a couple of really cool looking new Hex shaped muzzle brakes. The first was the FATman Hex Brake which utilizes a two chamber design to reduce felt recoil and 12 o’clock ports to compensate for muzzle rise. The newest version is the littleBOY Hex Brake and, as I’m sure you’ve guess already, is a little bit more compact (shorter) than the FATman. Currently both Brakes are available for 556/.223 and 7.62×51/.308/300blk but my contacts at P5WS have told me they will be releasing 9mm, 7.62×39 and 6.8mm versions later this month. Check out these sweet looking muzzle brakes and read the info below. Will make sure we let you know when the additional caliber options are available in a few weeks.

Phase 5 FATman Hex Brake 2

FATman Hex Brake

The FATman Hex Brake was created to solve issues faced by many competition shooters and precision rifle builders. The 2 large (FAT) ventilated baffle sections and chambers create the compensation needed to reduce the overall recoil felt by the shooter.

Phase 5 FATman Hex Brake 2

The FATman Hex Brake includes two top ports machined at a 20 Deg. forward directed angle. These top ports help direct the energy of the spent gas in a manner that maintains a flat consecutive result shot after shot. The design of the FATman Hex Brake allows the first chamber wall to sit as close to the barrel crown plane as possible. This design element was included to maintain the full accuracy of the barrel.


Phase 5 littleBOY Hex Brake 1

littleBOY Hex Brake

Introducing the littleBOY Hex Brake; a younger, compact version of the original FATman Hex Brake, which was also created to solve issues faced by many competition shooters and precision rifle builders.

Phase 5 littleBOY Hex Brake 2

Including 1 large (FAT) ventilated baffle section and chamber to create the compensation needed to reduce the overall recoil felt by the shooter. Just like its big brother, the design of the littleBOY Hex Brake allows the chamber wall to sit as close to the barrel crown plane as possible. This design element was included to maintain the full accuracy of the barrel.

The iconic Phase 5 Hex design gives the FATman and littleBOY Hex Brakes the perfect styling that custom gun builders are looking for.
