If you missed out on the last KAK Industry Contract Overrun Barrel Sale, here’s your chance to get in on another one. As I mentioned last time, KAK Industry produces barrels for many other companies and every once in a while wires get crossed and they produce more than the contract calls for. One of there recent contracts was for these 11″ 5.56 Melonite Barrels with a 1/9 twist of which they had some left over. These extra barrels are NOT Blems but need to go somewhere so the guys at KAK put them out at $100 a piece which is a steal for a Melonite finished barrel that typically sells for $265. Thankfully we have a good relationship with KAK Industry and they give our readers first crack at them. 

KAK Industry 11 inch 5.56 Melonite Barrel SalePhoto of my 10.5″ I snagged last time they had a contract overrun.

These again are 11″ barrels, chambered in 5.56 NATO with a 1:9 Twist, Carbine Length Gas, .750 Gas Block Seat and normal 1/2×28 threads. They also do not have any logo on them, just the Caliber and Twist. Perhaps the best part is that they are Melonite barrels which means they have had a molten salt bath. This changes the surface of the metal on the inside and out of the barrel, coating even the bore. Melonite is the same as QPQ, Nitride, etc and is very slick, much more durable than chrome lining and its corrosion resistance is off the charts. Probably my personal favorite Barrel and BCG finish. Check out the details below and then head on over to www.KAKIndustry.com to get one, or five, of these awesome barrels before they’re gone.

NEW!! Barrel Dimpling Jig for Low Profile Gas Block Use

Posted on April 2nd, 2015 by ar15news

I’ve built tons of AR-15 uppers and a good majority of them use Low Profile Gas Blocks with set screws and a few are pinned to the barrel. A couple of things I’ve learned with experience is that I always use Loctite on the set screws and whenever possible, I prefer to have the barrel dimpled for the set screw to seat in properly and really lock the gas block in place. It always amazes me when I spend good money on a barrel only to find that they didn’t take the time to dimple the barrel on the bottom side of the gas block seat and it happens more often than not.

The guys over at Parallax Tactical have found a way to make great use of their blemished Low Pro Gas Blocks by installing a Cone Point Set Screw that locks into the Gas Port of the barrel and a Hardened Steel Drill Bushing that allows you to use a simple hand drill and Cobalt 11/64th drill bit to dimple your barrels and in the exact right place every time.

These come as a complete kit, including the 11/64th Cobalt Drill Bit and is available for both .750 and .625 gas block journal diameters. The entire kit will sell for just $49.95 and can be used over and over again. Order one for yourself today at www.WeaponOutfitters.com. I’m going to!

Parallax Tactical Barrel Dimpling Jig 2

Presenting a REAL gas block dimpling jig. (compare to BRD with no drill bushing, limited use. We had to buy three-four of them before we found it cheaper just to use our reject gas blocks.)

Comes with a hardened steel drill bushing, a cobalt 11/64th drill bit and a cone point #10-32 cone point set screw which positively locates the gas port for a perfectly lined up dimple directly beneath the gas port for optimum function and security for all low profile gas blocks.

Comes in 750 and 625 gas block journal sizes.

MSRP $49.95

When your business is making stuff not just for yourself but also for other companies, some times wires can get crossed and you end up with some left over product once an order is fulfilled. That’s what recently happened to one of our good friends, KAK Industry. They make barrels for lots of other manufacturers using high quality Green Mountain Barrel Blanks. After a large run of 10.5″ 5.56 Melonite Carbine Length Barrels they had a few left over and asked if I thought you guys would be interested in snagging some for just $100 a piece. Of course I said “Heck yeah!”. That is a smoking deal! KAK usually sells these for $265. These are not Blems and have nothing wrong with them. Its just a rare opportunity to get such a great deal on a barrel from a company with a great reputation. 

These again are 10.5″ barrels, chambered in 5.56 NATO with a 1:7 Twist, Carbine Length Gas, .750 Gas Block Seat and normal 1/2×28 threads. They also do not have any logo on them, just the Caliber and Twist. Perhaps the best part is that they are Melonite barrels which means they have had a molten salt bath. This changes the surface of the metal on the inside and out of the barrel, coating even the bore. Melonite is the same as QPQ, Nitride, etc and is very slick, much more durable than chrome lining and its corrosion resistance is off the charts. Probably my personal favorite Barrel and BCG finish.

Quentin Defense has just introduced a new 18″ Fluted 5.56 Match Grade Barrel. The new barrel has a Black Nitride finish also known as QPQ, Melonite, etc. which is a surface treatment that actually changes the surface of the metal making it extremely durable and resistant to corrosion. Many companies are starting to use it on barrels because it coats the inside and out of the barrel as its a bath in molten salt. The bore gets coated which makes it slicker than chrome lining but is more durable than chrome lining. This barrel also features a 1:8 twist which is a great “shoot all” twist rate that does a great job with a wide range of bullet weights. You’ll also see fluting in front of and behind the gas block seat for weight savings, increased cooling surfaces and its looks pretty cool too. Normal retail will be $270 which is a great deal as it sits but they are offering an introductory price on this great looking barrel for just $230. You can snag one at www.Quentin-Laser.com.

LANTAC USA 2015 Product Brochure

Posted on February 26th, 2015 by ar15news

LANTAC USA has just released their new Product Brochure for 2015 which shows a snapshot of their current and coming soon products however I know they have many many more products that they would like to introduce this year too. I can tell you right now I have 2 Lantac Dragons that are just begging for the new BMD to be released and their new E-BCG is a must have and is already in the hands of customers with people raving about it. Other products such as the new UAR billet upper, SPADA rail, Dragon and DrAKon muzzle brakes we already know are out or on their way but I was surprised to see the addition of a 14.5″ Mid Length and 14.5″ Intermediate Length barrels which look to be really nice barrels.
