Nevada Ammunition – Train Reliably

Posted on May 19th, 2016 by ar15news

I recently purchased a bunch of ammo from Nevada Ammuntion. Specifically I bought their .223 Remington and 9mm remanufactured ammo. So far I have been extremely happy with my purchase. I’ve shot quite a bit of both the .223 and 9mm and will continue to do so but I’ve not shot enough to constitute a review. The .223 I’ve been shooting obviously in my ARs and the 9mm has been run in my Glocks as well as my AR9. Being that I paid for the ammo myself I really don’t want to go burn it all up for a review just yet so I figured in the mean time I would share a review my buddy Aaron over at Sage Dynamics did on the Nevada Ammunition 9mm reman that I have. Aaron is a straight shooter. The product being reviewed is either good or bad and he will tell it like it is.

Very happy to see Aaron has had as good of an experience with the Nevada Ammunition ammo as I have. Everybody wants good quality range/training ammo at an affordable price and Nevada Ammunition is definitely just that. One thing that I thought was worth mentioning is that you don’t have to buy in 1000 round cases to get the best price with these guys. Whether you buy 250 rounds, 500 rounds or 1,000 rounds its all the same price per round. If you’re looking for some quality, affordable ammunition so you can Train Reliably, hit up Nevada Ammunition at www. AmmoNV.com.

Be sure to follow Sage Dynamics at the following links to get lots of great training and review videos every week.

Hexmag Awarded Patent for their True Riser System

Posted on May 10th, 2016 by ar15news

**PRESS RELEASE**

Hexmag has recently been awarded the patent on our True Riser in our 10 and 15 round magazines. This patent is very important to us as we have developed an evolutionary system to offer factory made 10 and 15 round magazines for capacity restricted states. 

The Hexmag True Riser system for standard size Hexmag magazines was carefully engineered, with the Ar-15 consumer in capacity restricted states mind. You get a standard size magazine that is magazine pouch friendly, looks natural in your AR-15 and can still be dissembled for normal, routine cleaning/maintenance or to change the HexID system. 

Hexmag TRUE Riser System

It features our patented True Riser and a short spring, the True Riser brings the base of the spring up mimicking internally, a dedicated 10 or 15 round tiny magazine without the drawbacks of a tiny magazine. This has all been done here at the Hexmag facility to eliminate 3rd party dealer “blocking”, “pinning”, or “gluing” the magazines. Ultimately saving the dealer and consumer considerable amounts of money. Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazines have the same MSRP as the standard capacity 30 round Hexmag magazines of $14.99. 

Our HX10/30 10 round magazines were made for California, New York, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Chicago, Connecticut, Washington DC. The Hexmag HX15/30 15 round magazines were made for New Jersey and Colorado. If you live in one of these states or areas with a magazine capacity restriction you are not alone, rest assured that Hexmag has your back. 

All Hexmag magazines come with a Lifetime Warranty. For more information please visit the Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazine page on our website.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems Hex Brakes

Posted on May 9th, 2016 by ar15news

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.

Faxon Firearms “Gunner” Ultra-Light Bolt Carrier Group

Posted on April 28th, 2016 by ar15news

When looking to reduce felt recoil in an AR-15 (there isn’t a ton but there’s enough), one route you could go is to go with a lightweight Bolt Carrier Group. Lightweight BCGs are largely used in competition rifles like those used 3-Gun where the lighter the recoil the better for fast followup shots, etc. Faxon Firearms is already very well know for their successful ARAK-21 self contained piston upper and massive selection of barrels but noticed some issues with other lightweight BCGs and decided to make their own. Check out the all new Faxon Firearms “Gunner” Ultra-Light BCG and intro pricing info below.

faxon-gunner-bcg-ultra-light-bolt-carrier-groups-ff556bcgcnitride-lw-by-faxon-firearms-140

When looking at lightweight bolt carrier groups, we were unsatisfied with what the market had to offer. Seeing a capability gap, we set out to create a bolt carrier group that could live up to the GUNNER name with no compromise in strength or function. We set specifications that would allow no compromise:

1. Lightest Weight Possible (8.32 Ounces Complete, 6.24 Ounces Carrier & Key Only)
2. MIL-SPEC Materials & Finishes or Better!
3. Forward Assist Serrations
4. Compatible with Dust Covers
5. Maintains Full-Auto Trip Sear for full-auto and the new multi-stage trigger functionality
6. Looks Amazing

Matching our barrels, we selected the QPQ method of Salt Bath Nitride for all the carriers components. By coating all parts, the carrier’s natural slickness is increased markedly requiring less gas and pressure to operate. Further, the QPQ SBN process seals components against corrosion while making them fantastically wear resistant.

Modern Outfitters recently began offering their beautiful Spiral Fluted .223 Wylde barrels for individual purchase instead of just in a complete upper/rifle. These barrels are made from 4150 CMV steel, have a Melonite finish, 1:8 Twist, chambered in the awesome .223 Wylde (it’s a hybrid chamber that shoots both .223 and 5.56 but shoots 5.56 more accurately than a 5.56 barrel) and an 11 degree target crown. Currently you can choose between 14.7″ or 18″ barrel but I’ve heard there may be a 16″ version coming along shortly as well.

If you own a LANTAC Dragon 5.56 muzzle brake, chances are you are anxiously waiting the release of their new BMD or Blast Mitigation Device. The BMD is a quick detach shroud that lets you keep the benefits of the muzzle brake (reduction in recoil and muzzle rise) while forcing the concussion associated with using a muzzle brake forward of the shooter. LANTAC has been perfecting their design for some time and have finally settled on a two piece design which includes a collar that attaches to the muzzle brake and then the BMD attaches to the collar. This collar design allowed them to create the rock solid attachment system they felt was needed for the BMD while still making it compatible with the thousands of Dragon muzzle brakes that are already on end user rifles. Best news of the day…the new BMDs are now in production and a limited number have been made available for preorder. If you would like more information or would like to get in on the preorder, head on over to www.LANTAC-USA.com.

Plate Design ACEM AR/M4 MultiCaliber Speed Loader

Posted on February 29th, 2016 by ar15news

When I go to the range I usually go by myself so I can just do my thing. After spending some time by myself at the range over the weekend and having to reload my mags in the cold, with gloves on, etc. it was funny to run across this new product online yesterday. Plate Design has been making speed loaders for a while and even make them for the AK as well. What I like about their Gen2 ACEM AR/M4 Speed Loader is that it is MultiCaliber. Instead of just being designed to work with .223/5.56 it will work with a wide variety of the most popular AR calibers which includes .223/5.56, 300 Blackout, 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Grendel, 5.45×39 and 7.62×39 rounds. That’s pretty impressive. I myself shoot 5.56, 300BLK, 5.45×39 and 7.62×39 all the time through my ARs so this definitely interests me.

ACEM™ AR/M4 30 GEN 2 
–  Magazine interface: AR15/M4 platform 
–  Rounds: (capacity) 
–  5.56 x 45mm NATO/.223 Remington (30) 
–  300 Blackout (30) 
–  6.8 SPC (25) 
–  6.5 Grendel (25) 
–  5.45×39 (30) 
–  7.62×39 (25) 

I definitely think I am going to pick one of these up to give it a try. They are just $59.95 which seems totally worth it to save me the time and hassle of loading mags one bullet at a time, especially now that it works with multiple different rounds that I use often. If you’re interested in one yourself, you can get more information and purchase on for yourself at www.Plate-Design.com.
