NEW!! CMC Triggers Duty / Patrol 2-Stage Drop-In Trigger

Posted on February 17th, 2015 by ar15news

CMC Triggers is introducing another trigger option to their growing lineup. CMC currently offers their very popular Single Stage triggers in both Curved and Flat trigger styles and multiple pull weights as well as their new Two Stage triggers in both Curved and Flat trigger styles with your choice of a 1lb. first stage and 3lb. second stage or 2lb. first and second stage for a combined 4lb. pull. All of these options are great for recreational and competition shooters but someone such as a Police Officer on Patrol would want a trigger with a bit heavier pull to help protect against accidental discharge during high stress situations. This is why CMC Triggers is introducing the Duty / Patrol version of their new 2-Stage Trigger in both Curved and Flat styles. The new Duty / Patrol model will offer a 2lb. set (first stage) and a 4lb. release (second stage) giving it a combined 6lb. pull.

Trigger has a Glass-Smooth Break with no feel of grittiness. Trigger components are fabricated from 8620 alloy steel and S7 Tool steel, machined to exacting tolerances and finished for the longest service life possible.

Great Deal!! – AIM Surplus Nickel Boron .308 BCG

Posted on February 16th, 2015 by ar15news

The last year has seen an explosion of interest in building big bore AR’s, especially the AR-10/.308. Things like .308 receiver sets and barrels are not only a lot more readily available but also much more affordable than they ever have been before. Unfortunately some smaller parts like Bolt Carrier Groups are still not so easy to find and can cost quite a bit. This weekend I happened to run across the AIM Surplus Nickel Boron .308/7.62×51 BCG and was surprised to see that not only does it look like a very high quality BCG but they are selling it for just $179.95 with FREE SHIPPING in the lower 48 States. I just finished up my second .308 build over the weekend and might need to pick up one of these BCGs for the next .308 build.

AIM Surplus NiB 308 BCG

AIM .308/7.62×51 Caliber BDG Nickel Boron Bolt Carrier Groups. A great BCG at an even better price! We are having these built to our exacting Standards. The Bolt is shot peened and manufactured out of 9310 Tool Steel with a 4140 Machined Extractor. The Carrier is the more common DPMS pattern with a Nickel Boron finish for easier cleaning and provides a slicker surface. The Gas Key is Hardened to USGI Specifications and fastened to the carrier using Grade 8 Hardware, and then properly staked. More information below.

Assembly

The assembly requirements for our Bolt Carrier Groups are much higher than most.  Before assembling the gas key to the carrier, permatex NO.3D aviation is applied to form-a-gasket around the gas hole (per MIL-SPEC).  Then Grade-8 hardware i used to attach the gas key, followed by properly staking per spec.  When installing the extractor to the bolt, both the extractor buffer and the crane-o-ring are inserted with the spring.  Both are present to insure proper ejection 100% of the time.  Then high temperature grease is app to the gas rings before inserting the bolt into the carrier, which allows for much smoother operation. These BCGs are inspected to the highest of standards, to insure a high quality product that is 100% reliable for our customers…PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA!

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 Glock Mag 9mm PDW and Receiver Sets

Posted on February 13th, 2015 by ar15news

Its hard to believe that we are already half way through the month of February but this year is just flying by. I’ve been trying to decide on a good time to introduce you guys to some new products from Angstadt Arms which are due out in April. With as fast as time seems to be flying, if I don’t do it now I might completely miss it. In a very short time, Angstadt Arms will be introducing their new UDP-9 9mm PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) and 9mm Receiver Sets.

angstadt arms 0940 receiver set

The UDP-9 is a 9mm Pistol AR that features the new receiver set which are truly beautiful looking. If you don’t like it in Pistol configuration you can easily submit a Form1 to the ATF to register it as an SBR and slap a stock on it. Probably the most important feature to me is the fact that they are fed by Glock magazines instead of Colt mags. Many people carry a Glock 9mm as their concealed carry option, including myself. Having a Primary and Secondary weapon that both use the same ammunition and feeding source could be a huge plus if its ever needed. With companies such as Magpul and ETS Group making 9mm Glock Mags,  will be more readily available and less expensive to purchase as well. You can read more about the Angstadt Arms UDP-9 9mm PDW below.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 9mm PDW
The UDP-9 redefines the pistol caliber carbine. Designed specifically for urban environments and close quarter combat, the UDP-9 is a compact, personal defense weapon chambered in 9mm and fed with GLOCK® magazines.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 PDW SBRUDP-9 PDW SBR with an LWRC ultra compact stock and Ergo quad rail

Its compact size makes it ideal for home defense, security detail, law enforcement and anywhere space is at a premium. With models available for both prepared citizens, law enforcement officers and military personnel, the UDP-9 is easily configurable for any application. Available spring of 2015. Patent Pending.

UDP-9 Features

  • 7075-T6 billet aluminum lower and upper receiver with a matte black hard-coat anodized finish

  • Flared magwell for faster reloads, integrated, oversized trigger guard and a threaded bolt catch screw

  • Last round bolt hold open on an empty magazine

  • Slick side upper receiver with appropriately sized ejection port and no froward assist or dust cover

  • 9mm bolt assembly for use with a standard AR-15 hammer. Compatible with both GLOCK and Colt 9mm AR-15’s

  • 6” 9mm barrel in chrome moly with a 1/10 twist, black phosphate finish and A2 style flash suppressor

  • B5 Systems pistol grip

  • ODIN Works 5.5” free float keymod hand guard with continuous top picatinny rail and mounting positions at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock.

  • Weight: Sub 5lbs

  • Length: 21″

I’m really excited about Angstadt Arms’ new UDP-9 PDW and Receiver Sets. I’ve been wanting to either buy or build a 9mm AR for a while now, especially one that uses Glock 9mm Magazines like I carry every day. Not sure if I will buy a receiver set or full UDP-9 PDW but odds are I’ll end up doing something with these when they come out.

From what I can tell pricing will be $479 for an upper and lower billet receiver set, $1,249 for the UDP-9mm PDW Pistol and $1,349 for a UDP-9mm PDW SBR. Look for them to be released some time in April 2015. We will be sure to announce to you guys when they are available as well.

NEW!! DS Arms BUFFERLOCK Buffer and Carrier Insert

Posted on February 12th, 2015 by ar15news

DS Arms is proud to release the BUFFERLOC, an improved buffer and carrier insert for the AR15 type rifle that fits all in spec AR15/M16/M4 type rifles. 

This invention improves the reliability, durability and takedown of any AR15 type firearm. The BUFFERLOC also addressed an issue common to piston ARs’ carrier tilt. By keeping the bolt carrier in line with the buffer we have essentially eliminated this issue. The spring loaded ball bearing insert fits OEM in spec bolt carriers; this insert has a corresponding buffer machined with a dimple that aligns the carrier. This allows for the lower and upper to be tighter. The bolt and carrier also stays aligned much better. Plus the BUFFERLOC stops the upper from flopping open in disassembly. The added constant forward pressure also aids in the reliability of your rifle especially in fouled conditions.

The Buffer Lock’s Enhancements 
1.Allows for the rifle to be opened without flopping open and hitting your body or marring the finish of your rifle. 
2.Keeps the bolt group aligned for better reliability and even wear on the bolt head, extractor and barrel extension for less part fatigue and wear. 
3.Keeps constant extra pressure on the bolt group ensuring better bolt lock for enhanced reliability especially under fouled and dirty rifle conditions. 
4.Reduces carrier tilt seen in many piston designs allowing for less wear on the buffer tube and less friction that can cause reliability issues. 
5.Lowers the chance of bolt bounce because of the constant forward pressure on the bolt group, providing enhanced reliability. 
6.Enhanced bolt group alignment provides for a better ejection pattern. 
7.Improves the fit of the upper and lower receivers. 
8.Drop in all AR15/M4 with no permanent modifications to you rifle. 

This new product innovation adds durability and reliability to the heart of your AR15 type rifle, at a low cost.

MVB Industries Now Taking Pre-Orders for the MVB ARC PDW Stock

Posted on February 10th, 2015 by ar15news

Recently MVB Industries decided to redesign the much sought after but very hard to purchase “PDW” style stock, improving on what were obvious flaws in the design that most people were used to seeing. Their new stock is the MVB ARC stock. One of the main improvements MVB has made with their new ARC stock is the fact that you can use any mil spec BCG you want instead of a proprietary BCG. The benefits of this are pretty obvious such as being able to easily swap out a damaged BCG/Bolt, swapping different caliber uppers that require specific bolts or just to simply use the BCG of your choice.

Other improvements include placing the release button on the side of the shoulder piece itself instead of up closer to the receiver making one hand operation possible. Another enhancement made is the “Buffer Hold” button that allows you to field strip your rifle as you would any other AR. They also improved the installation of the buffer tube portion of the stock as it now has slots machined in to use a 3-prong Castle Nut Wrench to tighten it down instead of requiring a strap wrench. The fit and finish also looks amazing and the stock is made right here in the USA.

MVB’s original run of these stocks sold out almost immediately which really took them by surprise as they didn’t realize there were so many people looking for a PDW style stock with these enhancements. They have been working hard to do another run and are taking pre-orders right now. This stock is obviously not gonna be cheap but will really serve you well if you want a super compact setup.

Coming Soon – Battle Arms Development Lightweight Buttstock

Posted on February 5th, 2015 by ar15news

I still get a big grin on my face whenever I take a look at all of the awesome stuff Battle Arms Development has come out with over the past few months. They have an imagination that most companies could only dream of having. One of their new products that will be available very soon is their new Lightweight Buttstock. It’s a simple, minimalistic, compact and fixed butt stock.

Battle Arms Development Lightweight Buttstock 1

The small size of the butt pad works well to fit into the shoulder pocket and the buffer tube acts as the cheek rest. As I mentioned to someone earlier, its not that this stock is “non-collapsible”. I would say “non-extendable” as it is all the way collapsed to where a collapsable stock would stop at the back of the buffer tube. This will work great for those who like to shoot with their stock all the way collapsed or are using body armor, etc.

The Lightweight Buttstock is CNC’d out of solid billet 7075T6 aluminum. This version of the Lightweight Buttstock wraps and clamps down on the keyhole shaped cross section of the carbine buffer tube and secured by a screw and has a built in QD sling attachment as shown in the first picture below. There will be an additional version, also shown below, that will mount to the new “SaberTube” buffer tube that Battle Arms Development will also be releasing very soon.

I personally will be purchasing one of these to give it a try when they come out…like I do with just about any Battle Arms Development product. As far as I know, they have not given any pricing or exact release date but I do know they are coming very soon. Keep an eye on the Battle Arms Development Facebook Page or Battle Arms Development Instagram for more details.
