$15 3D-Printed Scope Throw Levers

Posted on April 3rd, 2016 by ar15news

We always keep our eye out for content that our readers will appreciate. It doesn’t have to be the most ground breaking new product or accessory. Some times manufacturers will send us information and ask us to post it on our site, other times we happen to run across a new product, special deal or a combination of the two that we think you guys should know about. This is the case with the MK Machining 3D-Printed Scope Throw Levers.

On Saturday I was relaxing after a long week, scrolling through some groups on Facebook when I ran across a post for 3d-printed scope throw levers for just $15. Usually a good throw lever usually runs about $60 so this kind of intrigued me. Throw Levers are designed to help you adjust the magnification on  your scope easier and quicker.

My first thought was “How strong are these and are they gonna break when I try to use it?”. From what I read the levers are 3D printed from a filament called PETG which is a strong polymer type material that has a little bit of flex to it. A 4-40 bolt is used to tighten into a pressed in threaded brass insert. One of the things this company has stated is that the material is flexible without yielding but if you buy one and are not happy with the strength of the product they will refund the purchase price and even the shipping.

At just $15 and with a guarantee like that there doesn’t seem to much of a risk to trying these out. I have 5 Vortex scopes that I’ll be ordering some of these for and wanted to tell you guys so you can do the same if you’re interested.

They have a ton of models available such as Vortex Viper, Vortex Strike Eagle, Nightforce NXS, Leupold Mark 6, Mark 8, Vortex Razor Gen II, Leupold Mark AR, Bushnell AR Drop Zone, and Kahles i just to name a few. If they don’t have a model for the scope you own they offer a free Throw Lever to anyone who will ship them their scope for a few weeks so they can create the lever.

As I mentioned, these 3D-Printed Scope Throw Levers are just $15. You can check out all of the available models at www.MKMachining.com.

Photos of the new Agency Arms “CLASSIFIED” Rifle

Posted on January 27th, 2016 by ar15news

At SHOT Show 2016, Agency Arms announced a partnership between themselves and PWS (Primary Weapon Systems) to offer the Agency Arms Project CLASSIFIED DI rifle. I got permission to share the following photos that as far as I know have not been fully published yet. Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics and Agency Arms said this regarding the new rifle…

“Everybody knows there’s ARs all over the place. Why would you choose one brand over another brand? Quality is quality. But there are features on the AR platform that can be improved and when people get together and start thinking about them they find new ways to do things that some people just didn’t think of before. Some times its a little fix, some times its something potentially revolutionary. Not gonna use the word game changer but what I will say is this rifle brings a lot of value added products to the platform that are gonna be something that you might prefer in a rifle system if you’re looking for a new one.” – Aaron Cowan, Sage Dynamics

Geissele’s Sneak Peek Christmas Present

Posted on December 29th, 2015 by ar15news

In case you missed it, just before Christmas Geissele Automatics gave AR owners all over the country a Christmas present of sorts by releasing a sneak peek at a couple of new products that will be coming soon. As you may already know, Geissele has been working on a new Scope Mount for a DOD (Department of Defense) customer since early 2015 and will be available for consumer purchase in 2016.

As if Geissele Scope Mounts weren’t good enough, just prior to Christmas they released an image that had every AR owners mouth watering. In the image (see below) there was a sneak peek at the new Geissele Ambi Charging Handle and Geissele T1/T2 micro red dot mount. The Ambi Charging Handle looks like it has a nice curve to the handles which should help you really get a good grip on it for ease of use and the T1/T2 mount looks low profile but stout.

Another new product coming soon is a new scope mount for the 50 BMG rifle. As you can imagine, due to recoil you can’t just use any old scope mount on a 50 BMG. The new Geissele 50 BMG Scope Mount will feature a 3 bolt design for the mount to rifle interface as well as a 3 bolt design for the scope ring caps to clamp on and hold the optic nice and tight over a larger surface area. If you own a 50 BMG rifle, this might be something to look into!

As you can see, Geissele isn’t just sitting around happy to be making Triggers and Rails. They are working continually to add more and more to their lineup all the time. Now if we could just talk Bill into making complete rifles we would be all set. 🙂 For more information on Geissele product, head on over to www.Geissele.com.

Intro Price!! Cross Machine Tool SSA (Smooth Side Ambi) Lower

Posted on December 11th, 2015 by ar15news

If you are a fan of a good clean looking design on your AR lower but still want some of the nicer high end features, you’re gonna love the new SSA or Smooth Side Ambi lower from Cross Machine Tool. The SSA Lower has all of the same great Ambi features of the Cross Machine Tool UHP15A lower but features a clean look with no corporate branding or Logo. 

As you can see below, the CMT SSA lower features a very nice flared mag well, crisp lines, extremely low key brand and serial number text, is compatible with the Battle Arms short throw ambi safety and features a very nice ambi mag release.

It also features a nicely executed ambi bolt release. You can see in this photo that the serial number is placed just below the trigger pin hole for a super clean look.

Cross Machine Tool is going to offer the new SSA lower at a super short-term intro price of just $199.99 which is an outstanding value for a great looking brand new lower that has all the same features as their extremely popular UHP15A ambi billet lower. I gotta say, with ATF-41P and possible gun control legislation looming right around the corner I have been looking for a new lower to SBR and this fits the bill perfectly. Head on over to www.CMTTAC.com and snag one for yourself at the intro price.

It’s Here!! Seekins Precision SP15 Forged Rifle with NOXs

Posted on December 9th, 2015 by ar15news

Seekins Precision just released a sneak peek at their new SP15 forged rifle. The SP15 rifle looks to be an outstanding rifle for the price, especially when you take into consideration it includes Seekins’ new NOXs 15″ handguard,  ambi safety and a 16″ match grade barrel. They are also equipped with a Magpul STR stock and MOE+ grip meaning you really just need to add some BUIS or optics and you’re ready to go. Check out the picture of the SP15 and some details below. The SP15 should be available soon from www.SeekinsPrecision.com at an MSRP of just $1,275.

Seekins Precision SP15 Forged rifle 2

Designed as a high performance tactical carbine, the SP15 is built to MIL-SPEC configuration with greater adaptability and performance through upgraded components and precision manufacturing. Both the upper and lower receivers are CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum forgings. The exacting attention to detail and precision manufacturing produce a superior fit and finish not found on standard MIL-SPEC parts.

Extremely lightweight and user adaptable, the included No Excess Rail (NOXs) is perfect for tactical, sporting and competition use. Precision machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, it features a seamless top Picatinny rail and M-Lok slots at 3, 6 and 9 O’clock positions for solid mounting of accessories where needed.

The SP15 provides precision rifle performance in a tactical carbine. The SP15 comes with a 16″ barrel with a Seekins Precision Melonited Flash Hider. Precision CNC machined from premium stainless a steel blank, each barrel is inspected four times to insure match grade tolerances for maximum accuracy and performance. Available in .223 Wylde and .300 Blackout

Melonited gas system components are used, including the gas block, gas tube and M16 Bolt Carrier Group. These are coated to resist corrosion and wear. This also aids in easier cleaning, as carbon build up will not adhere to the non-reflective coated surface as much as it does on standard parkerized finishes.

Other high performance features include the ALG QMS trigger group, an Magpul MOE + Grip and the Magpul STR butt stock.

  • Upper and lower receivers CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum forgings
  • Exceeds MIL-SPEC requirements and performance

  • Type III Class 2 Hardcoat Anodized Finish

New!! Push Button Ambi Speed Safety from Elftmann Tactical

Posted on November 10th, 2015 by ar15news

Talk about thinking outside the box. Elftmann Tactical just introduced a pretty neat new take on the AR-15 ambi safety that will be surprisingly familiar to many rifle shooters. Most of us grew up shooting BB guns, rifles and shotguns with a traditional push button safety. That is exactly what Elftmann Tactical just created for the AR.

The Push Button Ambi Speed Safety is as simple as it gets. On SAFE the cylinder is black and on FIRE the cylinder has a red ring. To Switch between SAFE and FIRE you just press in on the cylinder. You press on the left side to FIRE and press on the right side to return to SAFE. Its fast and easy and should be easier to use than a standard AR-15 safety under stressful situations or competition.

Quickly take your AR from safety to fire and back to safe with the simple push of a button. This is the fastest safety selector to engage and disengage on the market, with no rotation necessary, no shifting of the shooters hand needed.

–  Push Safety Design
–  Ambidextrous Operation
–  Extremely fast on-off
–  Precision machined from hardened Stainless Steel
–  Compatible with all Mil-spec receivers
–  Includes Detent
–  Absolute lifetime Guarantee
–  Proudly made in the USA

The NEW Ambi Speed Safety from Elftmann Tactical . This is the fastest AR15 / AR10 safety selector on the market.

Posted by Gun Point on Thursday, November 5, 2015

A few people have expressed concern regarding the possibility of accidentally bumping the safety. According to Elftmann Tactical “It takes enough pressure that is highly unlikely. I have tried purposely and not saying impossible but no more likely than doing the same thing with a 45 degree safety”

I definitely plan to grab one of these to try out. Innovation is not an easy thing to keep alive so it is always great to see companies like Elftmann continuing to come out with new and better products. Our friends at both Rainer Arms and AV Guns are carrying the new Elftmann Tactical Push Button Ambi Speed Safety which has a retail price of just $39.95, so I have put links to them below.
