Mesa, AZ, August 23, 2016 – XTECH Tactical, manufacturer of the Advanced Tactical Grip is today introducing two new products for the HK VP9 pistol. First up is the new 5rd Magazine Extender for VP9 magazines. The XTECH Tactical mag extender adds an additional 5 round capacity to the VP9 magazine for a 20 round total. The mag extender is super simple to install with absolutely no tools needed.

Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales and Marketing for XTECH Tactical explains how they have eliminated reliability concerns that plague many other mag extenders.

“The biggest thing for function is that we have a 100% consistent ID within the extender portion AND the  ID within the extender is less than the ID of the magazine.  The benefit here is that it is impossible for the extender to cause a Fail to Feed which is a known issue in extenders.”

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

The XTECH Tactical VP9 5rd Mag Extender is now shipping with an MSRP of $29.95 with FREE SHIPPING through the end of August.  http://www.xtechtactical.com/mtx-vp9p30-5-magazine-extender-with-spring/  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Additionally, XTECH Tactical will be offering complete XTECH Tactical VP9 magazines with and without the Mag Extender. The XTECH Tactical VP9 magazine will feature a 310 Stainless Steel body vs H&K’s Spring Steel body. It will also feature an extra round indicator hole to show the 20th round as shown in the photo below.

XTECH VP9 Mag 20 round 2

The XTECH Tactical 20 and 15 Round VP9 magazines will start shipping early this fall. The 20 Round magazine MSRP is $59.95 and the 15 Round magazine is $34.95.  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

First Look! Cross Machine Tool ARMINI 9mm PDW

Posted on August 24th, 2016 by ar15news

Cross Machine Tool has been teasing us little sneak peeks of a mysterious 9mm PDW for some time but it wasn’t until now that they released information and full pictures of the ARMINI. The ARMINI is a self contained 9mm PDW that takes Glock mags. It features Ambi Controls (something other 9mm AR’s don’t offer), a Non-Reciprocating Forward Side-Charging Handle and an awesome Side Folding Stock that locks into the rail system doubling as a Vertical Forward Grip. It is also extremely lightweight at just 3lb 4oz without the stock or 4lb 2oz with the stock.

The Patent Pending ARMINI can be seen at the Northwest Shooting Sports Expo this weekend August 27th -28th in Tacoma, WA. The ARMINI takes the term American Sub Gun to a whole new level. Although it may look similar to any other pistol caliber AR, it is not. Everything from the bolt, forward charging handle, receivers, buffer system has been designed around pistol caliber cartridges fed from a standard Glock magazine. Weights- 3lbs 4oz. Pistol configuration. 4lbs 2oz with folding buttstock/forward grip configuration.

The Cross Machine Tool ARMINI is a collaboration with Rainier Arms and will be available exclusively through the Rainier Arms website. You’ll also be happy to hear that the ARMINI will be sold in a “Pistol” configuration with the stock being sold as an optional product. This makes it so you can purchase your firearm and take it home with you, then submit a Form 1 to SBR it when you’re ready. Production Cross Machine Tool ARMINI’s will be available Early 2017.

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

Limited Edition Multitasker Tools TWIST tool in Multicam

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Multitasker Tools makes some of the most useful multitools specifically designed for owners of AR-15’s and other popular firearms. One of my personal favorites is the TWIST which is like a pen that Q would have made for James Bond and is packed with useful tools to help keep your firearms running and on target. If you remove the cap on one end it reveals a bunch of maintenance tools such as a carbon scraper, dental pick, etc that screw onto the end of the cap that was just removed. When you remove the other cap you’ll find a Front Sight Adjustment Tool which doubles also as a bit driver. Other features such as an Aimpoint Micro Turret Adjuster are also included.

As they have done in the past, Multitasker Tools has partnered up with Brownells to offer a limited edition version of the TWIST hydrodipped in Multicam. The Limited Edition Multitasker Tools TWIST will sell out fast but your hands on the them first at www.Brownells.com.

A New Tactical Storage Solution For Long Guns

Posted on August 17th, 2016 by ar15news

**Press Release**

TacticalWalls Introduces New Rifle Length Shelves with RFID Locks

TacticalWalls RFID Rifle Shelf Storage 1

Shenandoah, Va.–TacticalWalls has announced the release of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) locking models of its 842 and 1242 Rifle Length Shelf (RLS) units.  With this release, TacticalWalls customers will now have the choice between magnetic or RFID locking mechanisms on all locking TacticalWalls units (not including the Tactical Lamp, Wall Clock or Issue Box).

TacticalWalls RFID Rifle Shelf Storage 1

TacticalWalls RFID Rifle Shelf Storage 1

The new Rifle Length Shelves are the perfect option to store a long gun or several handguns in a concealed compartment disguised as a fully functional shelf.  Each shelf has one RFID sensor in the middle of the unit with two locks on each side to prevent any sagging and help keep the shelf secure. Installation is as easy as hanging any common shelf.

The primary advantages of RFID locks are that they offer greater security and also allow firearms owners to access their guns even faster in an emergency. Opening up the hidden compartment is as easy as swiping the preset RFID card in front of the locking mechanism. Each unit will come standard with two key cards and one programming card, used to match the key to the proper unit(s). Additional RFID cards can be ordered if needed.  One card can also be set to open multiple units, granting access to each firearm staged throughout the home. If the battery on the RFID locking mechanism runs out of power, the unit automatically defaults to an unlocked-but-still-closed position.

“Our customers have been asking us to add RFID technology to our Rifle Length Shelves for quite some time now and we’re pleased to now be able to offer them this feature.  Our team put a lot of effort into this design to ensure that the craftsmanship is on par with the high standards that TacticalWalls is known for and we’re excited to bring these high-quality storage units to the market,” said Chris Wood, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TacticalWalls.

Inside of each Rifle Length Shelf is a medium density polyurethane foam insert that is easily customized to accommodate various home defense items. Simply cut the required shapes out of the foam, peel the self-adhesive backing, and attach it to the compartment bottom. The foam securely holds everything in place. Optional L.E.D. lights illuminate your hidden cache.

Both the 842 RLS and 1242 RLS are handcrafted in the United States with real hardwood. The surface-mounted shelf is designed for use with standard 2 x 4 stud framing. Maximum recommended hold weight for this shelf is 25 pounds inside and 25 pounds on top. Each shelf is pre-assembled and supplied with a set of two bookend-style shelf brackets for added support, one foam insert, anchors and fasteners.  To match your existing home décor, the Rifle Length Shelves are also available in six different finishes (Early American, Dutch Walnut, Cherry, Black, White and Raw) and two different types of trim (standard and rope).

TacticalWalls is a family owned and operated business, based in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our products are proudly manufactured in the United States. Every product is handcrafted using U.S.-sourced materials. We make products that are simple to install, easy to use, and offer discreet storage solutions for every room.

MVB Industries ARC PDW Stock for AR-10 Rifles

Posted on August 16th, 2016 by ar15news

While you don’t see them very often, there’s definitely something jaw dropping about an SBR’d AR-10. Our friends at MVB Industries, makers of very well known and popular ARC PDW stock, have just introduced an AR-10 version of the ARC PDW stock. Gotta admit, I wish I had SBR’d one of my AR-10’s now. 🙂 If you’ve got an AR-10, SBR or NOT, and are looking for an option to make it a bit more compact, the MVB Industries ARC stock for AR-10 is a cool new product to take a look at. 

MVB Industries Banner

MVB Industries, Inc. (MVB) announced they have completed the production of the ARC Stock 7.62 NATO/.308 and that this innovative product is now available thru the company’s website:http://www.mvbindustries.com.

MVB ARC 762.308 PDW Stock 1

MVB ARC 762.308 PDW Stock 1

Gared Von Benecke, President & CEO of MVB, stated: “By utilizing our patent pending buffer and spring system, that makes MVB’s ARC Stock the premier PDW Stock in the marketplace, the ARC Stock 7.62 NATO/.308 brings the benefits of short overall length and rapid deployment rifle to a full power battle rifle. When collapsed it’s 2 inches shorter than a standard collapsed carbine stock, the size of this rifle platform has allowed for a full 5 inches of extension, resulting in an extended length equal to a Mil-Spec A2 rifle stock. The all-metal construction delivers extreme reliability and durability based on the quality raw materials precision machined to tight tolerances. Aluminum parts are Type III Mil-Spec Hard Anodized with the same specification as US Military rifle receivers. Steel components, primarily high strength 17-4 stainless steel, are heat treated and black nitrided for optimal strength, wear resistance, and smooth operation.”

LANTAC .308/7.62×51 E-BCG – Now Available

Posted on August 14th, 2016 by ar15news

By now most people are familiar with the LANTAC E-BCG. I personally use it in my suppressed SBR and it is simply an amazing BCG. They’ve been leaking pics of the .308/7.62×51 version for a while now and all of a sudden…the big boys are finally available. Make no mistake, this is not your average BCG and is priced accordingly. If you’re looking for simply the best .308 BCG, this is it. Pics and details are below. 

Lantac 308 E-BCG 1Lantac 308 E-BCG 1

AR10 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time.
Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a 9310 Precision Hard Ground, Magnetically Particle Inspected Bolt.
The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings.
This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 Rockwell C.
The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier.
This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse.
In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.
The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s position within the buffer tube at the time of cycling and allows for a flatter more controlled reciprocation of the assembly.
All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat.
All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360-H™ patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx).
The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver.
The BCG’s weight helps to increase lock time with smoother operation.
Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

The E-BCG’s forward porting and unique shape assist in reducing pressurization inside the upper receiver that can be caused by short barrel rifles running suppressors.
However, it should be noted that the E-BCG™ is not a complete solution for this issue and all rifles are different. ‘Over Gassed’ guns will suffer to a larger extent from this problem.

– Weight 1Lb 2.1oz
– Forward Porting, Enlarged Vents.
– Balanced flared boss.
– 8620 Carrier, Heat Treated, Hard Turned.
– MPI 9310 Bolt, Hard Turned / Ground.
– NiB UCT EXO Coating.
– CP-R360-H Domed Cam Pin
– Mil-Spec Gas Rings
– Mil-Spec Staked Gas Key
– Grade 8 Hardened Fasteners
– All Hard Chrome surfaces are to MIL-STD-171 1.2.2.2
– Lifetime Warranty.
– Made in the USA.

The LANTAC 308/7.62×51 E-BCGs are in-stock and available for purchase right now at www.RainierArms.com.
