Vickers Tactical & BCM Release the Best AR Cutaway Video Ever!

Posted on November 15th, 2016 by ar15news

With a simple Google search you can find quite a few AR-15 cutaway videos. Some are well done, some are dumb but absolutely none of them are as awesome as the one that Vickers Tactical and Bravo Company Mfg just released called “Inside the M4 Carbine”. One of the things I’ve always loved about the videos that Larry Vickers puts out is his use of super high speed video and this video is chocked full of it along with some amazing editing, close up action video and you can view it all in stunning 4K Ultra HD. I’ve watched this video quite a few times already and could watch it over and over again. If you’re ready to be amazed, check out the video below and be sure to watch it full screen in 4K UHD.

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)

Pics and info below. Get more details and purchase at www.AIMSurplus.com.

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.

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.
