Cross Machine Tool CRC 556 (Combat Recoil Compensator)

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Cross Machine Tool has recently started to build on their brand offerings with some new products. The CRC (Combat Recoil Compensator) muzzle device is one of those new products. The CRC features dual side ports and forward angled top ports to reduce muzzle rise. The tip of the muzzle device also is machine to mimic the machining on the front of the UPH15 lower receiver mag well. Muzzle brakes are just the beginning as new rails will soon be rolling out as well. The CRC 556 muzzle device is currently in-stock and available at www.RainierArms.com.

Two forward angle brake ports on the  CRC 556  provide greatly reduced muzzle rise & mitigate felt recoil while the front forks distort and reduce flash signature. The external machined flutes on the front flash forks not only reduce the overall weight of the device but also blend with the aesthetic appearance of our Trademark magwell grooves on CMT UHP15 series Lower receivers. Function of the CRC 556 muzzle device is equaled by the exceptional visible manufacturing quality & apprearence you expect from Cross Machine Tool products. MADE IN USA

They actually left the unique markings from the Hammer Forging process on the HBAR barrels and it looks awesome!! KAK is also offering a MidWeight contour with a standard finish.

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.

Bolt Specifications:

Bolt:
-9310 Tool Steel Construction (Stronger than C158)
-Full MIL-SPEC Heat Treatment
-Shot Peened to MIL-SPEC
-Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
-Back of Lugs Chamfered for Reliability
-Spring, Insert, & "Crane" O-Ring Installed
-QPQ – Salt Bath Nitrided

Extractor:

-Fully Heat Treated
-Shot Peened Per MIL-SPEC
-QPQ – Salt Bath Nitrided

About Faxon Firearms: Faxon Firearms is a leader in constant evolution in the firearms marketplace. Faxon focuses on US-made quality and innovation. From the ARAK platform, GUNNER & FLAME barrels, MuzzLok (crush-washer free) muzzle devices, and now with factory headspaced bolts and barrels, Faxon offers quality complete rifle systems and components. New dealers are welcome.

Aim Surplus NIB EXO BCG 2

AIM AR/M16 5.56/.223/.300 BLACKOUT complete Bolt Carrier Groups now with UCT’s exclusive Nickel Boron EXO Technology coating. We are having these bolts manufactured to our exacting standards with no Frills added to be able to offer the best BCG at the Best Price. Features 9310 Bolt Material; 8620 carrier and gas key; Properly staked Investment cast gas key hardened to USGI specifications fastened with Hardened Grade 8 Fasteners; Shot peened MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) Bolt. Extractor insert installed. Proudly made in the USA with a Lifetime Warranty.

UCT’S EXCLUSIVE EXO TECHNOLOGY
EXO Technology creates a competitive advantage for all kinds of components, because treated parts run dramatically longer and more accurately with less maintenance. Further, EXO greatly enhances heat dissipation, so treated products run far cooler than non-treated parts. The EXO process is permanent, lasting for the entire lifespan of treated parts. A patented, nodular nickel-boron (NiB) surface treatment, EXO nucleates on the surface atoms of metals, becoming part of the metal rather than merely applied to the outside. In addition, the treated surface becomes harder than the substrate itself, eliminating the cost, weight and degradation problems of conventional hardened metals. EXO Technology is featured in firearms, weapons and support systems used by the U.S. military and law enforcement and security agencies. EXO Technology is appropriate for virtually any application where reduced friction, extended service life, enhanced performance and lower maintenance are desirable.

Daniel Defense Introduces 32rd Polymer AR Mags

Posted on June 8th, 2016 by ar15news

Daniel Defense recently introduced an addition to their line of polymer products, the new 32rd DD magazine for AR-15 rifles. The magazine features a nice textured surface, impact absorbing baseplate and improved feed-lip design and one other thing….oh yeah, it holds an extra two rounds. You might think “Big deal, its just two rounds” but technically if you store your mags with rounds in them its best to download them 2 rounds. This means you will be able to store a full 30 rounds in these mags. They also will most likely be easier to insert on a closed bolt with 3o rounds in them too. For more information, check out the specs and pics below, then head on over to www.DanielDefense.com. They show “in-stock” now but says should be in mid-June.
