New!! Ares Armor Nickel Boron MK1 Mod0 BCG – Just $99

Posted on September 11th, 2014 by ar15news

Toward the beginning of this year, Ares Armor released their first NiB Bollt Carrier Group. This Summer they introduced an improved model with the MK1 Mod0 designation for its new NiB Coating that features a proprietary method of perfecting the balance of the Sodium Borohydride reducing agent. They are also individually coating all components of the bolt carrier group prior to assembly.

As with the original Ares Armor NiB BCG, this is a full auto model manufactured with an 8620 heat treated bolt carrier and a 9310 heat treated steel bolt. The bolt and extractor are shot peened and are MP batch tested with 20% of all product examined. The gas key is properly staked. Crane O Rings are utilized to increase tension on the extractor thus improving overall functionality. Our friends at PredatorArmament.com are now offering the new Mk1Mod0 BCG for $99.

NEW!! Umbrella Corporation Gen2 Premium Bolt Carrier Group

Posted on September 3rd, 2014 by ar15news

Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group recently released their new Premium Bolt Carrier Group and man this thing is sweet. As I’ve explained this BCG to many people already, its basically a “No Corners Cut” BCG. Every single part of the BCG production was scrutinized to make sure this BCG is as high quality as it gets. I was able to get my hands on one and wanted to take some pictures of it and share my initial review of the UCWRG Gen 2 BCG with you guys. That way you could make an educated decision as to whether this was the right BCG for you.

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 2

Not only does it feature the awesome Umbrella logo but the fit and finish is perfect. At first glance you wouldn’t think the coating is Phosphate because its much smoother than what is required to meet Mil Spec. They also went above and beyond using the best materials possible such as the 4340 Extractor (everyone else uses 4140; both are allowed by the M4 data package but since 4140 is less costly, it always gets the nod), using Carpenter Technology No. 158 gun quality aerospace steel alloy, etc. They also proof fire each BCG, clean and inspect to make sure every one is perfect before it goes out the door. 

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 1

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 3

Aside from the quality of the BCG, there is another aspect of it…which is that it looks really awesome. Whether you have UCWRG receivers for your rifle or not, seeing the Umbrella logo through the ejection port just looks cool. Of course if you do happen to be lucky enough to have some UCWRG receivers then this BCG will really tie everything together. 

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 4

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 5

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 6

Overall, I think the UCWRG Premium Bolt Carrier Group is the perfect upgrade for someone who wants only the best in their rifle. I’m really excited to put some rounds down range with this BCG. Once I’ve had some time to get a good round count with the rifle shown below, I will come back and do another writeup to let you know about my experience with it. At this point I would definitely recommend the UCWRG BCG to anyone. Having such a detailed list of components/features (listed below) makes it easy to see why this BCG would be a no-brainer. Not to mention at the introductory price of just $165 it is not much more than the “suspect quality” BCG’s I see floating around everywhere. If you want one for yourself, they are in-stock now at www.UCWRG.com.

Additional Details from the UCWRG website

Umbrella Corporation AR-15 Bolt Carrier Groups are our take on a premium, no snake oil, combat ready BCG. Each and every bolt is proof fired, ultrasonically cleaned, tested via magnetic particle inspection (MPI), and once certified, parkerized for corrosion protection and lube retention. In keeping with a superior product, we don’t utilize a Crane O-Ring as a crutch to increase extractor tension. Instead, our bolts are built with a mil-spec black insert coupled with a Tactical Springs 5-coil high load extractor spring that’s compatible with all DI gas system lengths. It’s rated for 150K+ cycles to outlast your rifle barrel many times over. We have improved on the finish requirement of the TDP and have chosen the best materials of those allowed per spec, not the lowest cost like nearly all of our competitors. This second gen product is manufactured to the highest standards with an unconditional guarantee against material defect and manufacturing failure. We challenge you to compare our Bolt Carrier Group specs against the competition. Beyond using Carpenter’s 158 alloy for the bolt, ask what alloy they use for their extractors, Extractor pins, ejectors, and whether their cam pins have a solid film lube per TDP. You will likely find they don’t advertise any of these specifications.  And don’t fall for the 9310 alloy bolt substitute; it is a less expensive, inferior alloy for this application. Bought into the hype and don’t believe us? Ask Carpenter Tech; they manufacture both materials and will without hesitation tell you 158 is the proper, superior alloy. The draw for 9310 is that it’s a decent material when heat treated properly though since there’s no spec, how do you know what “proper” might be for this application? It’s less costly, and you don’t have to buy mill run quantities for manufacturing. It’s the little things that make the real difference and we cut no corners with our Bolt Carrier Groups. as before, this initial first release is offered with a discount below our suggested retail pricing. Assembly/function check by a qualified Armorer is required.

HK MR556A1-SD Rifle and Suppressor Available at Rainier Arms

Posted on August 11th, 2014 by ar15news

Heckler & Koch (HK) and Operator Suppressor Systems Inc. (OSS) have teamed up to bring the ultimate complete package to market. Their pairing has birthed the HK MR556A1-SD, which is a package combination of the amazing HK MR556A1 rifle, the new HK MRS KeyMod rail and the new OSS Suppressor giving you the already proven quality and reliability of the HK MR556A1 rifle with a more comfortable, usable design. This could quite possibly be the coolest thing I’ve seen all year.

HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2 HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2

The new HK suppressed MR556A1-SD is equipped with a cutting edge next generation of suppressor technology from Operators Suppressor Systems Inc. (OSS). It is coupled with HK’s unique new Modular Rail System (MRS) to provide the shooter with a high performance integrated weapon system.

The modular rail system (MRS) for the MR556-SD allows the shooter to place individual rail components and accessories anywhere along the length of the seven free sides of the forearm using the slotted interface. HK has been working with OSS to develop the next generation of advanced suppressors for the HK MR series of rifles and carbines.

These suppressors are comprised of two modules, a Back Pressure Regulator (BPR) and a Signature Reduction Module (SRM)™. The BPR1425™ on the MR556A1-SD captures and controls expanding gases instead of simply trapping the gas with baffles. To further reduce the sound signature of the MR556 and eliminate flash, the OSS SRM4 module can be added to the end of the BPR1425.

HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2

Important Features of the MR556A1-SD MODULAR RAIL SYSTEM (MRS)

  • Repeatable rail segment mounting in any position along the 14 inch forearm (9 inch MRS also available)
  • Self-captured rail segment hardware
  • Two integrated Quick Detachable (QD) sling attachment points just forward of the receiver
  • Optional positionable QD mount attachment
  • Octagon profile allows the OSS suppressor to be installed/removed with the rail in place
  • MRS provides more comfort to the shooter’s support hand

OSS SUPPRESSOR

Typical 18 dB reduction with the BPR module installed without SRM Less than an inch of increased weapon length with just the BPR Eliminates up to 95% of the back pressure created by traditional suppressors Attenuates the noise signature without adversely affecting the operating system Redirection of expanding gas within the BPR reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise Greatly reduces weapon fouling Little increase in bolt speed Reduces component wear and overheating common to legacy suppressor designs Reduction in back pressure greatly diminishes toxic gases expelled back at the shooter Better weapon balance with over the barrel mounting of the BPR module Typical sound reductions measured at the shooter’s ear with the BPR and SRM4 installed <139 dB Components are designed to self-tighten during firing to prevent loosening Little to no impact shift transitioning from just BPR to BPR and SRM Typical MRTF (mean rounds to failure) 8000 rounds, semi-automatic Internal parts on both the BPR and SRM can be replaced

The HK MR556A1-SD gives the shooter the same outstanding MR rifle performance with the added benefit of more ergonomic handling and noise comfort of the new MRS rail system and OSS advanced sound suppression.

HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 1

Obviously with a suppressor being part of the HK MR556A1-SD package you will have to wait a number of months before your paperwork comes back from the ATF, so the earlier you get in on this the better. Right now Rainier Arms has Serial Numbers on hand for Form 3 Transfers and is one of the only places you can order this kit right now. Check it out at www.RainierArms.com
