It’s Back!! Rainier Arms Upper Receiver Combo Deal

Posted on March 31st, 2014 by ar15news

Awhile back Rainier Arms came out with a great combo set which included their high quality mil spec M4 Forged Upper Receiver (includes forward assist and dust cover), a Rainier Arms Raptor ambi charging handle and a Rainier Arms Full Auto BCG. By bundling these together you can save over $50 on some really high quality parts for your build. At that time these sold out really fast. Just the other day I received an email saying they are back in-stock. This is the perfect way to start off a really high quality upper build. Check out the pics and details below. This upper combo can be purchased right now at

My buddy Jesse over at Predator Armament sent me an email yesterday asking if I was interested in posting a special deal just for our AR15NEWS readers and of course I said Yes! Predator Armament has been a partner with us for a long time and they really like you guys. Basically they bought a bunch of really nice M16/AR15 Full Auto Bolt Carrier Groups from ARES Armor. These are in-stock and ready to ship. You can choose between a Phosphate model for just $85 or a Nickel Boron model for just $120.

Predator Armament has given us FREE SHIPPING from now through Wednesday unless they sell out of these BCGs before then. Whichever way you go you’re getting a great BCG. Check out the pics and details below, then head on over to Predator Armament at the links below to purchase yours before they’re all gone.

On Sale!! Rainier Arms NiB and Phosphate 5.56/.223 Bolts

Posted on January 30th, 2014 by ar15news

Out of all of the different parts of an AR that can let you down and fail during a class, range session or worse, the bolt is one of the most common parts to have issues. Could be bad gas rings, extractor issues, broken bolt lugs, etc. Most issues are fixable but its always nice to have an extra bolt or two with you just in case. Rainier Arms has a couple of really nice bolts on sale right now. One is a black Manganese Phosphate & MP Inspected 9310 bolt. The other is basically the same thing but it’s Nickel Boron coated. If you need a good quality bolt you should definitely check these out while they’re on sale at the links below.

NEW!! Complete 5.45×39 Conversion Kit from VooDoo Innovations

Posted on January 26th, 2014 by ar15news

About 4 weeks ago we introduced you guys to the really nice new 5.45×39 Melonite treated barrel from VooDoo Innovations which is the sister company to Adams Arms. I was personally excited about this as I’ve been considering building a 5.45×39 upper. You’re probably wondering “Why 5.45×39?”. The biggest reason is that you can find this ammo for around 15 cents per round which is less than half the price of any 5.56/.223 ammo you can find right now. The biggest hold back was finding all of the additional components needed to do the conversion which consists of a new Barrel, Flash Hider, 5.45 Magazine and the hardest to find part which is the 5.45 Bolt. With the new 5.45 Conversion Kit from VooDoo Innovations you don’t have to do any additional shopping.

The kit has a new Barrel (Carbine or Mid), Flash Hider, 5.45 Magazine and Bolt plus it includes an Extra Power Hammer Spring to ensure proper ignition with each trigger pull. The Melonite treatment to the Barrel (inside and out) and the Flash Hider prevents corrosion from the corrosive Russian ammo which makes it so you don’t have to rush home and clean your gun after every trip to the range.

As I mentioned when we introduced the barrels, this is a great way to save some money at the range. The more you shoot the quicker you will be able to recoup your initial investment in converting/building a 5.45 upper. I personally will be using this exact kit to build a brand new upper. This will be my first experience with an AR in this caliber and I am very excited to give you guys a full review of how it goes. However, you don’t have to wait on me. This new kit as well as the individual barrels can be purchased online at

You’ll also want to “LIKE” the VooDoo Innovations Facebook page as they continue to bring exciting new products to the market. Be on the lookout for our 5.45×39 build and review.
