Geissele Revamps Lineup of SMR Rails

Posted on August 21st, 2015 by ar15news

Geissele Super Modular Rails have always been hard to find in-stock as they’ve had a hard time keeping up with the demand. Recently Geissele decided to fix that issue by narrowing their rail offerings down to just their most popular models allowing them to increase production of those specific models which are the SMR MK4 and SMR MK8 M-LOK rails. Here are some words from Bill Geissele himself.

A letter from Bill Geissele to the best customers a company could ask for.

 

Dear Loyal Customers,

In 2009 Geissele started making our Super Modular Rail (SMR) for the AR-15/M4 Carbine platform. Since then the SMR variants have been highly sought after and keeping up with the demand became almost impossible due to the complex 3D machining and large material removal from the aluminum semi-billet we start with. A year and a half ago we decided to meet this issue head on; we invested in equipment, people, and engineered new processes and procedures to manufacture our SMR’s on a larger scale without compromising quality. This allowed us to make more rails than ever before and more efficiently than ever before. The improved processes have allowed us to not only mass produce the highest quality, premium rail on the market. But, it also allowed us to dramatically reduce the cost, a cost savings that we have decided to pass along to you, our loyal customers. Today is the culmination of all of that hard work. Starting now, the SMR’s for the AR-15/M4 Carbine platform will be available in 7”, 9.5”, 13” and 15”. Each SMR will also feature M-LOK compatibility, and most importantly will start at just $200. On top of that, each SMR will include a low-profile Stainless Steel Super Gas Block (SGB), a $59 value and a value that can’t be beat. 

I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your business and support. We promise to continue to provide the highest quality premium products available.

For God & Country,
Bill Geissele

New Geissele rails

Probably the first thing you’ll notice and many AR builders will be excited about is the fact that you can now get Geissele SMR in shorter length rails. Many SBR / AR Pistol owners have wanted to put an SMR on their ARs but have been unable to until now. Geissele SMR MK4 and MK8 rails are now available starting at 7″ and 9.5″ and then increase to 13″ and 15″ giving you an option for just about any build or need.

Geissele SMR MK8 Shorter LengthGeissele SMR MK4 Shorter Length

Another new surprise is that all rails (with exception of the MK7) will come with a FREE Super Gas Block. For non-adjustable gas blocks this is probably my favorite. They give you the option to use just set screws as well as a channel to pin the gas block to the barrel. I have used quite a few of these Super Gas Blocks without a single issue.

If you’ve been looking to purchase a Geissele rail, there’s never been a better time than now. All options are in-stock, new sizes to choose from and get a FREE Stainless Super Gas Block. How can you beat that?! Check them out now at www.Geissele.com

New Rail Coming Soon From SLR Rifleworks

Posted on August 17th, 2015 by ar15news

Its no secret that SLR Rifleworks makes some sick products. They offer one of the largest variety of lengths and styles of any rail manufacturer out there and pretty soon they’ll be offering another rail. This new rail does not have a name yet but will be available both KeyMod and M-LOK. What makes this rail different than the rest of the rails that SLR offers is that it will feature KeyMod and M-LOK mounting slots all of the 45 degree angles as well, not just at the 3, 6 and 9 positions.

The rail in the photos is a 14.87″ rail and will be be offered in many different lengths. The new rail will also feature SLR’s updated barrel nut mounting system which I have found to be pretty awesome on the last two SLR rails I’ve purchased. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available. In the mean time you can check out all things SLR Rifleworks on their website at www.SLRRifleworks.com.

Griffin Armament SN-ACH Ambi Charging Handle with Gas Port

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

The new Griffin Armament SN-ACH or Suppressor Normalized Ambi Configurable Handles are back in-stock. The new SN-ACH ambi charing handle features a gas port on the right side that redirects gas away from the face of the shooter. It also features ambi modular handles that can be easily swapped out for smaller or lager handles. 

Griffin Armament SN-ACH 4

Normally when you shoot an AR-15, the gasses that make your gun function are expelled through the ejection port but during suppressed shooting there are excess gasses and pressure that usually forces gas right into the face of the shooter through the charging handle opening at the rear of the upper. By machining a gas port on the portion of the charging handle that is outside of the receiver, the SN-ACH allows most of those excess gasses to exit away from the shooter.

Griffin Armament SNACH 5

If you’re looking for an extremely robust ambi charing handle or shoot suppressed and are tired of getting gas to the face, the Griffin Armament SN-ACH is an option to look at. Head on over to www.GriffinArmament.com and snag one before they’re sold out again.

NEW!! Rainier Arms XTC 2.0 Pre-Order / Intro Price

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Rainier Arms just released the new XTC 2.0 muzzle device which is the newest variation of their original RA XTC. The XTC 2.0 expands on the original versions capabilities with the tuned first port that mitigates the muzzle rise while the extra side port keeps the rifle planted for faster repeated follow up shots. The XTC 2.0 also features compatibility with the coming soon Fortis Mfg Control Blast Shield. The overall look has been refined such as a machined in “RAINIER ARMS” on the bottom of the muzzle device but no other markings making for a very clean looking finish.
