NEW!! KAK INDUSTRY 10.5″ 7.62 NATO SPECIAL PACKAGE

Posted on July 24th, 2015 by ar15news

Ever wanted to build a short barreled AR-10 SBR or AR Pistol? If you’ve been thinking about it, KAK Industry has a new package deal that you’re gonna love. Their new 10.5″ 7.62 NATO SPECIAL PACKAGE includes a 10.5″ 416 SS 7.62 NATO/.308 barrel with a 1:10 twist, a very nice KAK Industry solid stainless 308 carbine buffer and spring and the KAK’s Shockwave Tube and Shockwave Blade AR Pistol Stabilizer. The barrels are marked 7.62 NATO but are tested and approved to accept and use 308 Winchester as well. This is the perfect kit to get started on your new .308 AR Pistol or SBR. 

KAK 762 NATO Special Package Deal

Kurt from KAK Industry built this 10.5″ beast and was hitting 18 inch steel at 930 yards with Wolf 145 and handload 175 SMK.

In my mind I’m thinking it would be awesome to get another upper for my 18″ .308 I have now, SBR the lower and have a complete kit with one lower, an 18″ upper and a 10.5″ upper. If you’re looking to build a .308 AR Pistol or SBR like this, the kit with the barrel and KAK Shockwave Blade setup is available for purchase for a limited time at www.KAKIndustry.com. Don’t forget to browse the “308” section of the KAK Industry online store to check out a huge selection of 308 specific components. They even have billet aluminum .308 reloading blocks for you guys that are tier one hand loaders.

Our friends at KAK Industry have introduced a new 300BLK barrel that is going to be awesome for those of you who either want to build a super short 300BLK PDW style upper or for those looking to run a suppressed 300BLK upper but keep it nice and short for maneuverability. This 6.25″ Stainless Steel 300BLK barrel features a 1:7 twist and 5R rifling. Soon KAK will offer a complete upper using this barrel, an SLR Rifleworks rail and Royal Arms 300BLK Suppressor but wanted to offer the barrel as a stand alone piece while they wait for the rest of the components. I personally own quite a few different KAK Industry barrels and components and have had nothing but fantastic results with them. If you’re looking to build a super short 300BLK upper, be sure to give KAK’s 6.25″ barrel a look.

KAK Industry recently completed a large production run of 8.5″ 300BLK Melonite barrels for one of their vendors and has a very small number of them left over. They are looking to blow out this small contract over run for just $100 per barrel which is a steal. The last two times they offered us deals on their contract over run barrels they were for 5.56 and everyone asked about 300BLK. Well, here’s your chance.

New!! POF Puritan 5.56 Barrel

Posted on June 5th, 2015 by ar15news

POF (Patriot Ordnance Factory) has just released their Puritan 5.56 barrels for sale. These barrels are 16.5″ long and feature a  5.56 match chamber, 5R rifling and a 1:8 twist which together are capable of sub-moa accuracy. They also utilize POF’s patented E² dual extraction technology which makes FTE’s virtually a thing of the past. One last feature is a Black Nitride finish adding corrosion resistance to the inside and outside of the barrel. If you’re looking for a barrel for your next build, this would be a great place to look first. Check them out at www.POF-USA.com.

POF Puritan 5.56 barrel

The Puritan 5.56 barrel is constructed from mil-spec 4150 chrome vanadium steel and features a 5R rifling profile with 1:8 twist rate. The gas port is set up for a mid-length configuration gas system. We have also installed the Patented E² extraction technology. The E² dual extraction consists of 4 small channels cut into the walls of the chamber, allowing a small amount of gas pressure to flow backwards and push on the shoulders of the spent casing. This small pressure helps “un-seat” the spent case from the chamber while slightly pushing backwards as the extractor is pulling the case rearward. With this feature, the extractor is no longer doing all the work by itself; therefore the life of the extractor and overall reliability of the rifle system is increased. This feature does NOT deform the spent brass. To finish it off, our barrels are nitride heat treated, which greatly increases surface hardness and makes for a beautiful black and corrosion resistant finish.

MSRP is $215.99

These barrels shoot 1 MOA or better when installed in our Puritan series rifle.

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.
