LANTAC E-BCG, UAR Upper & DGN556B Dragon Muzzle Brake

Posted on November 23rd, 2014 by ar15news

Below is the latest press release, pics and super slow motion video from LANTAC regarding their new E-BCG and UAR upper.

Introducing our new E-BCG Bolt Carrier Group with forward porting gas system and Domed Head ‘SmoothCam’ Cam Pin. Our Enhanced BCG runs smoother and flatter, cleaner and with less pressurization to the upper when used with a suppressor. In testing with a 5.56X45mm 7.5” barrel, 62Gr CBC Magtech SS109 ammunition and Ase Utra Jet-Z CQB-S suppressor we could not feel any gas to the face either in Semi or Full Auto fire.

LANTAC E-BCG 2 620

Our UAR™ (Upper Advanced Receiver) features an ultra smooth bore and blended cam pin recess to reduce wear. It us machined from 7075T6 Billet Aluminum and Type3 Hardcoat, Class2 Anodized.

LANTAC E-BCG UAR 3

Also detailed is our 14.5” Intermediate Rifle with our E-BCG, Proprietary Buffer System and Dragon Muzzle Brake Recoil has all but been eliminated and there is more movement from the bolt carrier hitting the barrel extension as it reloads than there is from firing.

This rifle is the softest, flattest gun any of us or our test guys have ever shot.

New Products from G-CODE Just In Time for Christmas

Posted on November 21st, 2014 by ar15news

Our friends at G-CODE just released a couple of awesome new products that are sure to make the gun owner in your life happy as can be. The first product G-CODE released was their new series of Scorpion Mag Carriers which are available in 5.56 and 7.62 sizes for rifle magazines as well as Single and Double Stack Pistol Mag Carriers.

G-CODE Scorpion Mag Carriers 1

The Rifle mag carriers can be mounted to a belt via multiple different accessories, mounted to a Battle Belt or even mounted to a Plate Carrier. The Pistol mag carriers can either be mounted to a belt or stacked onto the front of one of the Rifle mag carriers. The mag carriers are ambidextrous and tension adjustable.

As if the mag carriers wasn’t cool enough, just yesterday G-CODE introduced the new HSP INCOG Eclipse holster. The Eclipse is an evolution of the original INCOG holster and features a new patent pending modular mounting point called the Super Mojo Adapter which allows the user to adjust the angle of the holster. The Super Mojo Adapter also features a negative angle which forces the gun closer to your body making it easier to conceal. 

G-CODE INCOG Eclipse Holster 1

The INCOG Eclipse is a minimum bulk, multi-positional, concealment holster. Each of its distinctive features improve the concealed carry of a handgun from a variety of carry positions while aiding the acquisition of a full firing grip on the weapon prior to the draw. Combined, these features maximize function respective to the users: body type, deployment tactics, level of training and personal preferences.

G-CODE makes some really high quality products and I’m sure both of these new products will live up to that reputation. Not to mention I don’t know of anyone who would be opposed to finding either of them under the Christmas tree this year. If either of these products peak your interest, click on the links below to view them on G-CODE’s website.

NEW!! Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights

Posted on November 20th, 2014 by ar15news

Man, I am seriously going poor with all of these awesome new products that companies like Magpul are releasing lately. With the release of the new Offset version of the awesome MBUS PRO sights, I don’t see the bleeding stopping anytime soon. Offset sights work great with magnified optics. Switch from magnified (longer range) optics to non-magnified (close range) sights by simply rotating the gun about 45 degrees. The fact that these are collapsible sights make them very low profile when not in use as well.

I’m really excited to give these new Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights a try. I did the same thing with the standard MBUS PRO sights and now I have like 5 sets. :) As far as I can tell these are in-stock and ready to go now at www.Magpul.com at just $189.90 for a front and rear set. I’ll race you over there to see who can get a set faster.

NEW!! Mega Arms Slide Lock Ambi Charging Handle

Posted on November 19th, 2014 by ar15news

Mega Arms kind of surprised everyone the other day when they released pics of their new Slide Lock Ambi Charging Handle. Apparently this has been in development for close to a year now and will be released very soon. One key to this charging handle is that it has no latch that requires you to push on it for it to release the charging handle from the upper receiver. According to Mega Arms it has “full ambidextrous operation and some of the fewest moving parts of any charging handle on the market.”. This is a big improvement since it removes the main failure point of any charging handle which is the roll pin that the latch pivots on. There are no specifics regarding price or availability yet but they did say it will be less expensive than other ambi charging handles on the market. Check out the video and pics below. Stay tuned for a followup article as soon as the Mega Arms Slide Lock Charging Handle becomes available for purchase.

Fortis Mfg Billet Upper – Now Available At Intro Price!!

Posted on November 18th, 2014 by ar15news

We’ve shared a few sneak peeks of the new Fortis Manufacturing billet upper receiver and today we get to announce that they are officially available for purchase. As with most Fortis Manufacturing products they are offering an introductory price on this first run. The intro price is available through Revolvr which is an awesome firearms friendly market place. I’ve been buying stuff on there for months and love not having to use PayPal like on other sites.

The new 7075-T6 Fortis billet upper comes complete with the Dust Cover and Forward Assist already installed and features some really cool machining cuts around the Forward Assist and Shell Deflector areas as well as on the entire opposite side. One thing to note is that the Fortis billet upper will work with basically any rail including ones with Anti-Rotation Tabs which is typically a problem with billet uppers. Fortis did a great job removing all sharp edges on this thing and the finish is great. The biggest plus is the value. Right now you can purchase the new Fortis Billet Upper for just $179 with FREE SHIPPING at www.Revolvr.com. Now that’s a deal!

The Fortis Billet Upper is a precision piece, machined from Billet 7075 T6 aluminum. Like our other products, we designed this upper with function as well as form in mind. We shaved off the ounces where we could without sacrificing rigidity or strength. The end result is increased function and performance with the design aesthetics that we’re known for. See for yourself and you’ll see and feel the difference with our products. Features: One Piece Billet Design Aircraft Grade 7075 T6 aluminum Military Specification Type III Hard Coat Anodized Engraved logos on both sides as well as the top 1913 picatinny rail flat top Includes installed upper parts kit Light weight at 8.6oz (including UPK) Made in the USA!

NEW!! Magpul MOE K2+ (Rubberized) Grip

I have 3 or 4 rifles with the Magpul MOE K2 grip on them and really like them. Been a fan of the MOE+ for a while now too and have always thought it would be nice if they offered a MOE K2+ version which would add the rubberized finish to it. Well, now they do. Late yesterday they released the new MOE K2+ rubberized grip. If you’re looking for a new grip or just have $25 burning a hole in your pocket, head on over to www.Magpul.com and pick one up.

Now Available!! BCM KAG (Kinesthetic Angled Grip)

Posted on November 13th, 2014 by ar15news

Bravo Company Manufacturing has absolutely been killing lately…even more than they usually do! Hot on the heels of the release of their new BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock and BCMGUNFIGHTER Mod3 Vertical Grip, BCM is now releasing the much anticipated BCMGUNFIGHTER KAG or Kinesthetic Angled Grip. 

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG 2

The KAG is a cool looking rail mounted grip that is somewhat of a mix between a Handstop and a Vertical Grip. It is designed to not only help you get consistent hand placement but it also makes sure you have a more comfortable position for your support hand which will help reduce wrist and arm fatigue. The KAG uses a new patent pending mounting system like the new Mod3 Vertical Grips have and are available in both KeyMod and 1913 Picatinny models. BCM literally just released these yesterday so all models and colors are currently in-stock. Check out the details and pics on the awesome new KAG below.

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG 1

The KAG is the result of collaboration between BCM® and Travis Haley, founder of Haley Strategic Partners and inventor of multiple weapons manipulation enhancements in the firearms industry.

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG Travis Haley

Designed to complement modern shooting grips, the Kinesthetic Angled Grip (KAG) uses a biomechanically efficient forward rake to create an interface for positive retention and joint relief to the wrist, elbow, and shoulder, allowing for smooth weapon manipulation without substantial increase to the girth of the weapon system. Textured on both front and back, the profile of the KAG creates a channel for consistent and positive engagement which translates directly into improved efficiency in weapons manipulation and target to target transitions.

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG 3

-  Forward rake gives positive retention when using “C-clamp” (thumb over bore) method of handguard support
–  Works as a rest for supported firing positions
–  Slight angle without significant bulk adds just the right amount of relief to the wrist without substantially increasing the girth of the handguard
–  Small profile is just enough to get repeatable hand position on weapon for end
–  Innovative patent pending attachment method allows for robust clamping and alignment with minimal hardware and slender accessory size
–  Textured in front and back for positive engagement
–  Made in the U.S.A. from high quality, impact resistant polymers.

Available for purchase now at an introductory price of $17.95 at http://www.bravocompanymfg.com/kag/
