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.

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.

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!! 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.

Joint Force Enterprises / San Tan Tactical / Geissele Build

Posted on November 17th, 2014 by ar15news

Recently I had the opportunity to have Joint Force Enterprises do a complete Cerakote job on one of my blasters and I wanted to give you guys a look at the results. This is something I had been wanting to do for a long time so I was really excited to finally do it. I sent them a new San Tan Tactical receiver set, a Geissele Automatics SMR MK3 rail, VLTOR EMOD stock, a Magpul MOE K2 grip and a couple awesome HexMag 30 round mags so they could coat them and then I would assemble them into a complete rifle. 

I left the color choice up to JFE since they are a lot more experienced with making Black Rifles look awesomely not Black. They chose to do their Grey #5 Cerakote, kind of reminds me of a cement color, and I couldn’t be happier with the color. 

JFE SanTan Geissele Build 1

One thing I wasn’t sure about was how well the Mags, Grip and Stock were going to turn out. I know people Cerakote rails and receivers all the time but you don’t see a lot of Cerakoted plastic parts. JFE did such a great job on them. It literally looks like a factory color. They’re not shiny or slippery at all. Just perfect.

JFE SanTan Geissele Build 1

The coating and shade were extremely consistent across all of the parts that I had them coat for me. There were no missed spots or spots that needed to be touched up, etc. It was absolute perfection. All of the components fit back together without issue. The mags still dropped free and the ambi controls function just as if they came off the shelf at San Tan Tactical. 

JFE SanTan Geissele Build 1 JFE SanTan Geissele Build 1

To finish off this build I used the Joint Force Enterprises 16″ 416R Stainless Steel Match barrel with a 1/7 twist, San Tan Tactical STT-15 Pillar billet set, ADK Enhanced BCG, GLTactical Commander Muzzle Brake, Geissele SMR MK3 rail, Magpul MBUS Pro sights and MOE K2 grip, VLTOR EMOD stock, HexMag HEX30 mags, CMC Triggers 3.5lb Flat Trigger, IWC QD End Plate, Fortis Gas Block and an Aimpoint PRO in an American Defense Mfg QD mount.

If you’re at all looking for a company to add some life to your boring old Black Rifle, be sure to hit up Joint Force Enterprises. They do a fantastic job as you can see. Soon I’ll be doing a review on the JFE 16″ 416R SS 1/7 Match barrel so be on the look out for that article. Below are some links to check out the products I used in this build.

NEW!! SI-Defense Releases Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set

Posted on October 30th, 2014 by ar15news

In the AR world there are lots of partially ambi receiver sets but that typically just means that they have an ambi bolt release lever. To me thats not really an ambi receiver because you’re still multiple other features that aren’t ambi. I know I’m obviously not the first to feel like that and I can guarantee you that is exactly what SI-Defense was thinking when they started designing their new Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set.

One of the first things you’ll notice is that both sides of the lower receiver look exactly the same. The brain trust at SI-Defense did this on purpose to ensure your body gets used to doing the same exact thing whether you’re shooting with your right or left hand. These mirrored features include an Ambi Mag Release, Ambi Index Finger Grooves and a complete Bolt Catch Assembly on both sides giving you a true Ambi Bolt Hold function which is absolutely priceless when clearing malfunctions (I know you’ve heard me preach about that before).

SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 1

SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 2

Upon further inspection you’ll also see that they have also included a Pivot Pin Spring Housing on both sides of the lower receiver. That’s right! This new receiver set even offers an ambi Pivot Pin and Takedown Pin system which is something I don’t remember ever seeing before. A couple of other neat features are the Quick Release Dust Cover Assembly and a Threaded Forward Assist Pin Hole.

SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 3SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 3

So as you can see, this is a very well thought out design that looks just as good. I’ve also heard there will be an AR-15 version of this available as well so keep an eye out for that. SI-Defense is currently taking pre-orders for this new Ambi .308 Billet Set. Head on over to their brand new website at www.SI-Defense.com or call 406-752-4253 to place your pre-order.

**The receiver set includes dust cover, ambi bolt catch, ambi mag release. Forward assist, takedown pins and ambi selector not included but are available for sale in the Parts and Accessories section of their web store.

NEW!! Arisaka Defense Light Mounts and QD Sling Attachments

Posted on October 6th, 2014 by ar15news

A buddy of mine (UWone77) has been playing around with some new products from Arisaka Defense and he seems to be very happy with them. Arisaka Defense is a brand new company (literally brand new, as in “no website yet” new) but they seem to already have some nice designs and understand what components people are looking for. The first components they are making available will be an M-LOK and KeyMod light mount, M-LOK QD Sling Attachment Point and a Light Mount that is designed to mount directly to a Centurion Arms CMR rail. I’ve listed some pictures below. As I mentioned their website hasn’t been finished yet but they have a Facebook page that they have started so you can follow along as they introduce new products.

If you are a Billet Aficionado like I am, you will absolutely need to add the new Rainier Arms Gen 2 UltraMatch ambi billet receiver set to your collection. Priced at just $350 with Free Shipping this should be a no-brainer.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lowers Now Available for Purchase

Posted on September 8th, 2014 by ar15news

Rainier Arms has officially released their new A-DAC Forged Lowers which means I will be buying one very soon. The A-DAC function is a right-hand bolt catch (integrated into the magazine release button). The A-DAC allows you to hold the magazine release button in (dropping the mag if one is inserted), pull the charging handle to the rear and lock the bolt back all at the same time. There are only a couple other lowers that offer this feature and the Rainier Arms lower is the newest and most affordable of them all.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I could care less about an ambi Bolt RELEASE. I want an ambi Bolt HOLD to help with increasing the speed of clearing malfunctions, etc. There really isn’t any other reason for you to manually hold the bolt open unless you’re clearing a malfunction or inspecting the weapon which in both cases you will want to remove the magazine. The A-DAC system is the perfect solution. Watch the following video that shows how the A-DAC system works.

The original Forged lower will still be available, if you don’t want or need this feature. The Mountain logo has also been added to the left side of the receiver.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1

Benefits:
- Removes six steps from the Manual of Arms when clearing a double feed malfunction.
– The device adds the ability to use the right hand to lock the bolt to the rear while still leaving you the option of using the standard left hand method.
– Greatly reduces the amount of time needed to clear a malfunction.
– Unlike all other devices there is no need to learn to find a new location for your trigger finger as one experienced with the weapon already instinctively makes contact with the magazine release button first to clear any remedial action malfunction.

Trouble free simple design:
- Can be field stripped with no tools.
– Only one additional part is required and is completely internal to the receiver.
– There are no screws to come loose.
– There is no weight added to the bolt catch that could cause it not to lock open on the last round like other devices which bolt on.
– Nothing to snag on clothes or other gear.

Safety:
- Virtually eliminates the possibility of the user’s finger unintentionally entering the trigger guard while locking the bolt to the rear.
– When used, makes it impossible to inadvertently lock back the bolt with a loaded magazine left in the receiver. This prevents the possibility of chambering a round in the event the rifle is bumped causing the bolt to drop.
– Nothing to accidentally trip the bolt release when reloading or clearing a malfunction as it is only a bolt catch.
– Allows you to keep a firm grip of fire control – making it much easier to keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction when locking the bolt to the rear.
– Nothing obstructing any portion of the trigger guard – preventing any issue with snagging a gloved hand.

The all new Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC lower is available for purchase now at www.RainierArms.com.

NEW!! Fortis Mfg Releases New Aimpoint Mount and Light Mount

Posted on August 28th, 2014 by ar15news

Fortis Manufacturing quietly introduced two new products this week. One is a new version of their awesome F-1 Optics Mount (Aimpoint T-1/H-1 Mount) and the other is a new KeyMod Light Mount. I’ve included pics and details for both new products below.

The Fortis Manufacturing F-1 Optics Mount is one of the cooler looking mounts designed for the Aimpoint T-1/H-1 optic and is now being offered in an Absolute Co-Witness mount height. People have always been asking for an Absolute Co-Witness version of the F-1 Optics Mount which was a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness Mount. Lower 1/3 Co-Witness and Absolute Co-Witness refer to where your Iron Sights line up in relation to the Red Dot. A Lower 1/3 Co-Witness mount is a bit taller so your Iron Sights will be in the lower portion of your optic with the Red Dot just above. With an Absolute Co-Witness mount your Red Dot and Iron Sight will line up together. Having an Absolute Co-Witness mount has its advantages such as being able to sight in your rifle with just your Iron Sights and then line your Red Dot up with them for quick sight-in.

Fortis Mfg also just introduced a new KeyMod Light Mount. This light mount is designed to fit most flashlights with a 1″ body such as the Elzetta Design lights, most SureFire lights, etc. As I mentioned, this is a KeyMod mount and will work with any KeyMod rail. The design of this light mount pushes the position of the flashlight up and forward which makes it much easier to activate the light without having to move your support hand much and also gives you a bit more room on the rail for your hands or other accessories.

Fortis Mfg prides themselves on producing American Made, high quality, affordable AR-15 accessories and components and these products are exactly that. Both products are available for purchase now at the links I’ve supplied below.
