NEW!! 2A Armament LITE rails – KeyMod or M-LOK with Ti Nut

Posted on March 5th, 2015 by ar15news

These new LITE rails from 2A Armament look really awesome and seem to be crazy light weight. 2A Armament makes a ton of light weight components for AR’s including receivers, take down pins, muzzle devices, etc. and I’ve heard nothing but great things about their parts. These new rails look like the perfect finish to any lightweight build and come in both KeyMod and M-LOK versions. If you can’t get enough of the light weight stuff, 2A Armament is definitely worth checking out.

The 2A Armament™ LITE RAIL M-LOK and KeyMod series was designed as a lightweight rail solution utilizing proven traditional 6061 extrusion, and titanium as the foundation. The LITE RAIL series of rails features the same lightening cuts found on the popular BALIOS-lite receiver sets. When the two are combined, a seamless look is achieved across the top of the firearm. The LITE RAIL is just as capable on any quality forged or billet upper receiver offered from other manufacturers as well. By utilizing a titanium barrel nut, and an innovative 45 degree mounting system, the LITE RAIL achieves a solid lockup with the upper receiver. The 2A Armament LITE RAIL will ship with a 6AL-4V titanium barrel nut. An optional aluminum barrel nut is offered as a separate item for those looking to save maximum weight on a build.

NEW!! Griffin Armament M4SD 5.56 Suppressor

Posted on March 5th, 2015 by ar15news

We all know that owning Suppressors is an expensive addiction to have can make it very hard for most people to even get started in their NFA ownership. Thankfully, Griffin Armament has brought back the M4SD suppressor, a more affordable option versus their flagship M4SD II suppressor.

The M4SD has fewer parts and is faster to machine than their flagship M4SD2 and M4SD-K suppressors so they are able to pass on the savings to the consumers. The M4SD still has the same billet construction and QD system but does not come with a mount (muzzle device that the suppressor mounts to). Instead you can mount the M4SD to an inexpensive A2 compensator or upgrade to any of the Griffin Armament M4SD suppressor mounts. Take a look at the pictures and details below. Whether you are ready now or hoping to start purchasing suppressors in the future, the Griffin Armament M4SD is definitely worth putting on your list of suppressors to own.

Griffin Armament Header

The M4SD suppressor is back- providing the original project goals- an affordable, sound suppressor with support for compatible A2 compensators. Taking the lessons learned from the M4SD II flagship development program, we simplified and produced a more economical suppressor and are passing on the savings to the customer. The M4SD retains the welded, 17-4 billet construction and is as durable as the flagship suppressor. Full auto rated, equipped with a user friendly snap on interface, backed by an extensive muzzle device family- the M4SD suppressor is a great suppressor for the entry level NFA enthusiast desiring a QD interface.

The M4SD mounting system does not suffer from the wear prone issues of ratcheting systems common to the marketplace.
Our SDQD mounting system was designed to provide trouble free use.

New!! ACCU-GRIP

Posted on March 3rd, 2015 by ar15news

**PRESS RELEASE**

Las Vegas, NV, March 2, 2015 Accu-Grip www.accu-grip.net announces a remarkable low-cost patented and patent pending improvement to the AR-15 platform that will actually make shooting more comfortable and inherently much more accurate.  www.accu-grip.net

Well first, who doesn’t make something for the AR platform anymore? True, but much of the gear is just flat-out show biz, not something that’s actually useful. This is!

Accu-Grip invented and is now producing a unique adjustable grip for the trigger finger hand (strong hand) that makes for much more effective trigger reach and trigger control and results in greatly improved shooter accuracy. Image shows block, grip parts and wrench.

ACCU-GRIP 1

The key to accurate and quick shooting is trigger control. Trigger control can be greatly improved by correct contact between the trigger finger and trigger. The basic trigger length of an AR is just 2.25 inches which is why most shooters position their hand awkwardly or have their trigger finger dangling out the other side of the trigger guard. NO MORE!

ACCU-GRIP 1

The Accu-Grip allows the shooter to lengthen and incrementally adjust the critical grip-to-trigger contact–up to 3.25 inches if desired (above image shows 5/8 inch). While that may not sound like much, any experienced shooter will tell you it is huge and can greatly improve critically important trigger control resulting in more accurate shooting.

Installation takes about five minutes. Accu-Grip fits all MILSPEC and factory lowers and comes with the necessary hardware and Allen wrench for installation. After installation, adjusting the grip to fit the individual shooter takes a few seconds. Movement of the grip is accomplished in 1/10-inch incremental positive hold adjustments and, of course, the grip may be adjusted as many times as the shooter wishes.

MATERIAL: The patented, all American-made Accu-Grip is molded with DuPont Zytel resin and long strand glass fibers, making it incredibly tough–tougher than the original grips.

COLORS: Accu-Grips are available in black, dark earth, OD green and desert sand. Other custom colors can be created in quantity on request.

PRICE: $39.95 MSRP.

BOTTOM LINE: People will spend a bunch of money getting triggers reworked, attaching cheese graters and doing other nifty stuff to the AR, but AR grip-to-trigger length improvement may be more important to better trigger control function and resulting shooter accuracy than anything else done on these rifles for under $500.00. Please see below Additional Background information.

Additional background information: When installed there is a gap behind the fully enclosed receiver and front edge of the grip where the thumb wraps. This gap increases as the grip length is increased. While different looking from the norm (What’s new with any of the stuff we attach to ARs?) it means nothing in operation or keeping the gun “dust free.”

We are all shooters at our PR firm with some having held NRA National Records. While it is our job to inform you of neat new products we can tell you that this single improvement to our ARs was astonishing. Our staff’s ability to place accurate hits at any speed was dramatically improved by everyone by an easy 25 percent and the trigger feel was 100 percent better. The Improved trigger pull position made 7-pound triggers feel like 3-pounds due to the resulting much improved trigger finger leverage and location.

To better understand this unique grip and why it can really help with accurate shooting, think of length of pull. As you know, length of pull with a rifle or shotgun is critical for accurate and comfortable shooting. Length of pull as applied normally is the distance between the rear of the butt or recoil pad of the rifle or shotgun to the center point of the trigger. This distance allows the shouldered firearm to “best fit” from the shooter’s shoulder to the trigger–length of pull is quite simply an overall trigger reach adjustment. Factory long arms have a generalized distance designed to fit the average person (like factory ARs). Many custom gun makers will measure and build a precise pull length to fit the individual shooter, and many competition long arms and some sniper rifles have fully adjustable pull lengths.

Now apply that concept to the vertical grip of the AR (obviously different from a normal sporting rifle). The conventional AR grip forces the shooter to have their trigger finger a certain distance from the grip–like it or not. The AR vertical hand grip does NOT allow shooters to move their trigger finger hand back or around (like the stock of a conventional hunting-style rifle might, for example). With the AR, you are stuck! On top of that, the 54-year-old AR trigger-to-grip distance is short so that smaller people can use the firearm (designed for military use, it has to fit everyone). Now comes the Accu-Grip solution!

The Accu-Grip allows this grip-to-trigger-surface distance to be opened up so that Joe and Jane Average-or-larger shooter can function the trigger much more efficiently. Improved reach, feel and trigger manipulation control means more accurate and even quicker shooting. We could call this the trigger length of trigger pull (TLTP), a huge improvement at low cost. A serious win win.

New!! Gear Sector Rail Mount Offset QD Socket

Posted on March 2nd, 2015 by ar15news

Gear Sector recently introduced their new Mod3 1913 Rail Mount Offset QD Socket. Gear Sector is known for making high quality, battle proven products and the Mod3 builds on that reputation. By offsetting the QD socket they were able to make it about half as wide as their original sling mount and also makes a more low profile design. Weight was reduced by 30% for the Mod3 with the weight coming in at less than 1/2 of an ounce including mounting hardware which is pretty impressive.

These offset QD Sockets work great for adjusting where on your rail your 2-point sling attaches. The mount is low profile enough that you can easily run it on the top rail section without it being in the way at all or could be mounted in either direction on any rail section to accommodate grips, etc. I placed mine on the top rail section just to the rear of where my support hand grips the rail as you can see in the pictures below.

Gear Sector Offset QD 1 copy

The Patented Pending Gear Sector™ Rail Mount Offset QD Socket provides a forward mounting location for those who wish to utilize our two or three point sling with our QD push button adapter. It can also be used with a variety of other quick detach push button swivels commercially available. We designed the mount to fit perfectly flush with the Tango Down® rail panels to provide an uninterrupted rail space. The socket was designed and machined to prevent rotation which in turn prevents your sling from becoming twisted. It offsets the quick detach swivel 45 degrees allowing the weapon to hang more naturally when slung across the chest in a ready position. It comes complete with all mounting hardware, screws, hex keys, and Vibra-Tite® to make installation fast and easy. Mod 3 components feature a 30% reduction in weight; an 1144 StressProof® heat treated full width steel index, as well as the ability to index your swivel in 8 different clock positions!

MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION

The Gear Sector™ Rail Mount Offset QD Socket is constructed using multiple base materials and is precision CNC machined from billet stock. Material and finish processes are outlined below:

–  Base Material: 6061-T6 Aluminum
–  Base Finish: Military Specification ( MIL-A-8625F ) Type III, Class II Hard Coat
–  Index Material: 1144 StressProof® heat treated steel
–  Index Finish: Nitrocarburising by Nitrotec®
–  Weight: 0.48 ozs.
–  Compliance: 100% Berry Amendment Compliant
–  Origin: Proudly Made in the USA

The new Gear Sector Rail Mount Offset QD Sockets are now available for purchase at www.GearSector.com. They also have a ton of other accessories such as my personal favorite Short Vertical Grip and an awesome Hand Stop. Be sure to head on over and check out the awesomeness.

Posted on February 27th, 2015 by ar15news

One of the nicest billet lowers I own has been the UCWRG billet ambi lower receiver. It utilizes the A-DAC ambi bolt catch that is tied into the mag release and is such a beautiful piece of machining. Unfortunately they have almost never been in-stock…until now. Right now UCWRG has 45 billet lowers in-stock. I’ve also heard that those who ordered billet lowers have received shipping notices. If you want a chance to snag one, head on over to www.UCWRG.com and pic one up for yourself today.

Ms Clean 2.0 “The Double” KickStarter Campaign

Posted on February 25th, 2015 by ar15news

Peter Palma, the inventor of the original Ms Clean Kit, is at it again. After already completing his first massively successful KickStarter campaign to create the Ms Clean, which is a Magazine Shaped Cleaning Kit, Peter has launched a new KickStarter campaign for “The Double” which as you may have guessed is a kit that is roughly double the size of the original Ms Clean. The Double allows much more storage capability for spare parts, cleaning supplies and tools all while maintaining its extremely durable case.

Ms Clean The Double 1

Ms Clean The Double 1

Much how the original Ms. Clean can be transported in standard M4 Mag Pouches, The Double will fit in Double M4 Mag Pouches making it very easy to take with you wherever you take your AR. And being that most Mag Pouches attach to Molle or Pals webbing your kit can be mounted to your Plate Carrier or Bag wherever is most convenient.

Ms Clean The Double 1

Head on over to Ms. Clean’s “The Double” KickStarter page to pledge your support. If you want, you can also choose to make your pledge in the form of a donation and Ms. Clean will send kits over seas to men and women in active duty that could use kits right now! Either way, this is a great campaign to support.

New!! Faxon Firearms Ambi Ejection Port Window Upper

Posted on February 24th, 2015 by ar15news

Just today Faxon Firearms announced it will be replacing their Left Hand ARAK-21 uppers with their new Ambi Ejection Port Window Uppers. Basically that means that all uppers from here on out will all have the ambi window which will allow you to choose between left or right hand eject just based on your mood that day. To switch between left and right hand eject, all you need to do is remove the BCG from your ARAK-21 upper, take out the bolt, rotate the bolt 180 degrees and re-install the bolt and BCG. Faxon Firearms will have bolt on covers that you can install if you want to close off the side of the receiver you are not using. If you currently have an ARAK-21 upper on order with them you can call in and ask them to make sure yours will have the Ambi Ejection Port Window. Another nice thing is that the new feature will not change the standard pricing at all.

Faxon Firearms ARAK-21 ambi upper 1

Its official TODAY: the ambidextrous window ARAK-21 is now available for order!

There is no additional charge for the ambi window receivers.

Key points and FAQ’s
1. Customers who have orders who have not shipped may change to an ambi receiver by contacting us. It will delay your shipment.
2. We are currently 3-4 weeks ARO due to backlog
3. Covers for either side are in-production. ETA is about 6 weeks. They will need to be ordered separately.
4. The ambidextrous receiver replaces left-hand eject options. We have a few left-hand only available. Contact us for details.

One of my favorite products that I’ve recently used in a build is the new SI-Defense Ambi .308 billet set. The Mirrored Ambi Controls are seriously the best thing since sliced bread.

They feature the exact same Mirrored Ambi Controls that the .308 set which includes the same Bolt Catch / Release lever on both sides and the same Magazine Release button on both sides. Craziest part is the set costs less than many of the other billet receivers sets on the market that aren’t even ambi. Take a look at the pics and then head on over to www.SI-Defense.com to put in your order today.
