KAK Cold Hammer Forged Barrels and Hammer Forged Finish

Posted on July 31st, 2016 by ar15news

A couple of weeks ago Kurt over at KAK Industry sent me a sneak peek of a new Cold Hammer Forged barrel he was making. We’ve all seen CHF barrels and usually they just look like a normal barrel but these were different. They actually left the unique markings from the Hammer Forging process on the HBAR barrels and it looks awesome!! KAK is also offering a MidWeight contour with a standard finish. Check out the pics and details below.

Faxon Firearms – Headspace Matched Bolt/BCG and Barrel

Posted on July 29th, 2016 by ar15news

**Press Release**

(Cincinnati, OH) – Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of factory matched bolts and barrels for all its 5.56 NATO and 300 Blackout Barrels.

Available for order today, anytime a customer orders a bolt and/or carrier with a barrel, the Faxon factory will precision match the bolt to the barrel using custom hardened gauging. As a set, the bolt and barrel are then matching laser engraved as a set for easy identification.

Faxon Firearms Headspace Matched Bolt and Barrel

Matching our famous barrels, Faxon’s bolts are made using only state-of- the-art machining and materials. Bolts are machined from 9310 tool steel, which is stronger than “mil-spec” C158. The extractor is S7 with latest-spec extractor spring system including spring, “Crane” o-ring, and silicone insert. Bolt carriers available as optional add-ons include the ultra-lightweight GUNNER series and the standard “M16” carrier.

“For customers who do not have a set of headspace gauges or a gunsmith available, the factory-matched bolt/carrier and barrel removes all the guesswork from putting together an AR-15,” said Nathanial Schueth, Director of Sales & Product Development. “Further, the laser-engraving ensures that no bolt and barrel are mixed up between rifles.” There is no charge for the factory-matching, laser-engraved serialized bolt and barrel service. Orders only apply to in-stock barrels and bolts, with lead times generally only a week after order. Dealers and OEMs are encouraged to explore the service as well.

Bolt Specifications:

Bolt:
-9310 Tool Steel Construction (Stronger than C158)
-Full MIL-SPEC Heat Treatment
-Shot Peened to MIL-SPEC
-Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
-Back of Lugs Chamfered for Reliability

About Faxon Firearms: Faxon Firearms is a leader in constant evolution in the firearms marketplace. Faxon focuses on US-made quality and innovation.

Great Initial Results From The CBI 20″ .308 Match Barrel

Posted on July 28th, 2016 by ar15news

The other day I took some time to start sighting in my new 20″ .308 upper I just built for my FALKOR Defense rifle. Shot this awesome 100yd 3-shot sub-1/2-MOA ( .4935″ ) group with a 20″ Criterion Barrels match barrel. I realize it is just a 3-shot group but I’m very impressed so far. I was shooing some PNW Arms 175gr “Sniper” Match 7.62×51 ammunition. I had a few other really nice groups but this was my last and tightest group of the day. I only have room for a 100yd range on my property but my buddy has a 500yd gong that I think I need to ring with this baby.

Serious Armorer’s Tools for Serious AR Builders

Posted on July 12th, 2016 by ar15news

As an avid AR owner/builder I have lots of experience piecing together rifles and the tools that are required to do that. I’ve used pretty much everything from the super cheap to pretty pricey when it comes to Armorer’s Tools. Most of your “inexpensive” Armorer’s Tools are, for the most part, made for the AR owner who will build a rifle once or twice a year and are prone to marring you rifle parts and tend to break during use. Some just flat out don’t work as advertised and are a “jack of all, master of none” type of design. I’m always looking out for the next must have armorer’s tools. Geissele Automatics did it with their Reaction Rod and now it looks like Fire 4 Effect has done it with their new F4E AWS (Armorer’s Wrench Set). 

Instead of one wrench that is supposed to do everything, the F4E AWS consists of 3 separate wrenches including a Barrel Nut Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench. This design made it so the portion of the wrench you are trying to use is positioned in the center with an extended handle on both ends of the wrench. On each of those handles are cutouts for use with a torque wrench and the suggested torque settings are actually etched on. The Castle Nut Wrench has an amazing design to it that doesn’t allow it to tear up your castle nut or buffer tube and the Barrel Nut Wrench features 9 points of contact that are all replaceable if one gets bent. Just seems like an extremely well thought out set of wrenches. Check out the pics, video and details below. 

NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT!

The Fire 4 Effect team is proud to announce the F4E Armorers Wrench Set! Developed by Master Gunsmith and former Army Marksmanship Unit NCOIC Matt Haidu the Armorers Wrench Set or AWS consists of a Barrel Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench.

Fire 4 Effect AWS Armorers Wrench Set

Manufactured from water jet cut mild steel that has been CNC milled, laser engraved with a custom cerakote finish the AWS is designed to provide a lifetime of use for the AR15 armorer. Each wrench has a life time warranty.

Key Features:
———
The Barrel Nut Wrench provides 9 points of contact on the barrel nut and features hardened steel roll pins which can be easily replaced by the individual armorer.
———
The Castle Nut Wrench uses recessed castle nut lugs for improved lock up during assembly and disassembly. The Castle Nut Wrench also doubles as a Receiver Extension / buffer tube wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench features a alignment groove to assist armorers while indexing muzzle devices.
———
Torque wrench attachment points have the corrected torque wrench calculation engraved on the Muzzle Device Wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench also features shoulder inlets to accommodate crush washer expansion.
———
All wrenches incorporate 2 handles for balanced manual torque application during assembly or reassembly.

PROUDLY MADE IN TEXAS!

Individual Wrench Price:
– Barrel Nut Wrench: $129.99
– Castle Nut Wrench: $119.99
– Muzzle Device Wrench: $79.99
– Complete AWS Price: $300.00

If you are a serious AR build, not just a once a year builder, you will definitely need to get your hands on a set of these awesome wrenches. Fire-4-Effect offers a 10% MIL/LE discount with appropriate credentials. You can order your AWS at www.fire-4-effect.com

Modern Outfitters recently began offering their beautiful Spiral Fluted .223 Wylde barrels for individual purchase instead of just in a complete upper/rifle. These barrels are made from 4150 CMV steel, have a Melonite finish, 1:8 Twist, chambered in the awesome .223 Wylde (it’s a hybrid chamber that shoots both .223 and 5.56 but shoots 5.56 more accurately than a 5.56 barrel) and an 11 degree target crown. Currently you can choose between 14.7″ or 18″ barrel but I’ve heard there may be a 16″ version coming along shortly as well.
