Umbrella Corp Weapons Research Group Teases New Billet Set

Posted on September 6th, 2016 by ar15news

We received an email from UCWRG (Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group) the other day that had¬†some good intel in it and wanted to share it with anyone who didn’t receive the email as well.

If you resisted the urge to immediately click over and buy one of the UCWRG Raptor charging handles that were back in-stock and kept reading they included some good info on what changes are going on at UCWRG right now. New UCWRG BCGs will be released soon and they continue to have an issue with getting forgings that are up to their high quality standards. 

If you kept reading past that you get to what we all are interested in…UCWRG BILLET!! I am fortunate to own one of the very first UCWRG billet ambi lowers ever made and love it (its featured¬†in a ¬†lot of my SBR photos).¬†UCWRG has never been able to keep up with demand for their products¬†but it appears they may have figured out some of their production¬†dilemmas as they are about to release a NEW billet¬†lower¬†and drumroll….billet upper. Photos and details below.

UCWRG billet lower v2UCWRG Billet Upper

We have a new billet lower design complete and we’re excited to get them out there. While we’d like to have receivers¬†ready before the election, we’re pushing to have them finished before Christmas. Timelines can change, especially after November. Like our first billet design these¬†will include the ADAC for right side bolt catch. We’ve made a few improvements to this lower;¬†the magwell¬†bevel is deeper and by popular request we’ve added a tension screw. You might also notice we’ve switched the logo from the 3D version to our standard deep laser engraved umbrella. These lower receivers still feature our unique¬†magwell¬†geometry and are WEDM cut for an even smoother finish.¬†Billet uppers will follow soon after the lowers are released to complete the pair.

UCWRG SBR 620

So, if you’ve wanted to get on¬†the UCWRG train, your chance might be coming sooner than you realize. I hope this means good things going forward for UCWRG¬†and they do make a¬†phenomenal product.¬†Getting it out to the consumers is the key. You can check out all of the UCWRG¬†products at www.UCWRG.com.

LANTAC .308/7.62×51 E-BCG – Now Available

Posted on August 14th, 2016 by ar15news

By now most people are familiar with the LANTAC E-BCG. I personally use it in my suppressed SBR and it is simply an amazing BCG. They’ve been leaking pics of the .308/7.62×51 version for a while now and all of a sudden…the big boys are finally available. Make no mistake, this is not your average BCG and is priced accordingly. If you’re looking for simply the best .308 BCG, this is it. Pics and details are below.¬†

Lantac 308 E-BCG 1Lantac 308 E-BCG 1

AR10 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time.
Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a 9310 Precision Hard Ground, Magnetically Particle Inspected Bolt.
The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings.
This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 Rockwell C.
The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier.
This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse.
In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.
The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s position within the buffer tube at the time of cycling and allows for a flatter more controlled reciprocation of the assembly.
All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat.
All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360-H‚ĄĘ patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx).
The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver.
The BCG’s weight helps to increase lock time with smoother operation.
Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

The E-BCG’s forward porting and unique shape assist in reducing pressurization inside the upper receiver that can be caused by short barrel rifles running suppressors.
However, it should be noted that the E-BCG‚ĄĘ is not a complete solution for this issue and all rifles are different. ‘Over Gassed’ guns will suffer to a larger extent from this problem.

– Weight 1Lb 2.1oz
– Forward Porting, Enlarged Vents.
– Balanced flared boss.
– 8620 Carrier, Heat Treated, Hard Turned.
– MPI 9310 Bolt, Hard Turned / Ground.
– NiB UCT EXO Coating.
– CP-R360-H Domed Cam Pin
– Mil-Spec Gas Rings
– Mil-Spec Staked Gas Key
– Grade 8 Hardened Fasteners
– All Hard Chrome surfaces are to MIL-STD-171 1.2.2.2
– Lifetime Warranty.
– Made in the USA.

Posted on July 6th, 2016 by ar15news

I’m definitely going to have to pick up a few of these new NIB EXO BCG’s from AIM Surplus. The NIB EXO coating is simply amazing and well worth the extra money over a standard NIB finish.

AIM AR/M16 5.56/.223/.300 BLACKOUT complete Bolt Carrier Groups now with UCT’s exclusive Nickel Boron EXO Technology coating. We are having these bolts manufactured to our exacting standards with no Frills added to be able to offer the best BCG at the Best Price.

Extractor insert installed. Proudly made in the USA with a Lifetime Warranty.

UCT’S EXCLUSIVE EXO TECHNOLOGY
EXO Technology creates a competitive advantage for all kinds of components, because treated parts run dramatically longer and more accurately with less maintenance. Further, EXO greatly enhances heat dissipation, so treated products run far cooler than non-treated parts. The EXO process is permanent, lasting for the entire lifespan of treated parts. A patented, nodular nickel-boron (NiB) surface treatment, EXO nucleates on the surface atoms of metals, becoming part of the metal rather than merely applied to the outside. In addition, the treated surface becomes harder than the substrate itself, eliminating the cost, weight and degradation problems of conventional hardened metals. EXO Technology is featured in firearms, weapons and support systems used by the U.S. military and law enforcement and security agencies. EXO Technology is appropriate for virtually any application where reduced friction, extended service life, enhanced performance and lower maintenance are desirable.

LANTAC 308 “Heavy” E-BCG

Posted on May 20th, 2016 by ar15news

LANTAC has been working on the new .308 (Heavy) Version of their E-BCG for some time now and they just announced it is now in production. The E-BCG is simply one of the best AR15 BCG’s on the market and now you’re looking at possibly the best AR10 BCG out there as well. Time will tell but I am expecting great things from the E-BCG “Heavy”. Not sure on price just yet but if the price of the AR15 E-BCG is any indicator, it’s not going to be cheap. We’ll keep you up to speed as more information regarding the E-BCG Heavy is released.
