LANTAC E-BCG, UAR Upper & DGN556B Dragon Muzzle Brake

Posted on November 23rd, 2014 by ar15news

Below is the latest press release, pics and super slow motion video from LANTAC regarding their new E-BCG and UAR upper.

Introducing our new E-BCG Bolt Carrier Group with forward porting gas system and Domed Head ‘SmoothCam’ Cam Pin. Our Enhanced BCG runs smoother and flatter, cleaner and with less pressurization to the upper when used with a suppressor. In testing with a 5.56X45mm 7.5” barrel, 62Gr CBC Magtech SS109 ammunition and Ase Utra Jet-Z CQB-S suppressor we could not feel any gas to the face either in Semi or Full Auto fire.

LANTAC E-BCG 2 620

Our UAR™ (Upper Advanced Receiver) features an ultra smooth bore and blended cam pin recess to reduce wear. It us machined from 7075T6 Billet Aluminum and Type3 Hardcoat, Class2 Anodized.

LANTAC E-BCG UAR 3

Also detailed is our 14.5” Intermediate Rifle with our E-BCG, Proprietary Buffer System and Dragon Muzzle Brake Recoil has all but been eliminated and there is more movement from the bolt carrier hitting the barrel extension as it reloads than there is from firing.

This rifle is the softest, flattest gun any of us or our test guys have ever shot.

KAK Industry just introduced their brand new Nitride coated M16/AR15 BCG. A couple of nice things to note on these is that there are No MIM Parts Used (all parts are machined for added strength and reliability) and the fact that it is Nitrate treated means this thing will run super slick. The Nitride “coating” is actually a surface treatment that will not come off, increases lubricity, hardens the surface and increases the durability of the product. KAK is offering the new Nitride Coated BCG at an introductory price of just $99.95 each. Details, pics and purchase link are below.

KAK Industry 7.62×39 AR Pistol Build and Range Report

Posted on October 20th, 2014 by ar15news

I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve not had a ton of time to go to the range but last week I specifically made time to hit the range and function test my 7.62×39 AR Pistol I built. This thing had been sitting in my HSP INCOG Rifle Bag completely ready to go just begging for some action and it was my pleasure to oblige. Below you’ll see some pics of my 7.62×39 AR Pistol. I’ll first cover the components I used to build it and the range report will follow after that.

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

Basically all you need to retrofit or build any AR upper as a 7.62×39 is the Barrel, Bolt and Mags and KAK Industry has everything you need in one place. I already had an extra AR Pistol lower built so I just needed some of their awesome upper components. The lower is a Noveske N4 forged lower with an ALG Defense ACT trigger, Battle Arms Development Selector, Magpul MOE K2 grip, Law Tactical Gen3 Folding Stock Adapter, Phase 5 Weapon Systems Pistol Buffer Tube and a Sig Sauer SB-15 Arm Brace. I upgraded to a Wolf High Power Hammer Spring but probably could have done without it. 

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

For the upper I sourced the heart of the build at KAK Industry. They make all of their own components and have a great reputation. I used the KAK Industry 11″ 7.62×39 barrel, KAK Industry 7.62×39 complete BCG, KAK Industry Gas Block and Gas Tube. The upper receiver is an AERO Precision forged upper with a Northtech Defense Ti-FANG Titanium forward assist, Fortis Mfg Hammer charging handle, Centurion Arms 11″ CMR rail and a BattleComp BABC. Topped it all off with a Vortex Optics Viper PST 1-4 scope and an American Defense Mfg QD mount.

Of course the weather is changing up here in Michigan. It was cold and rainy that morning at the range but I couldn’t care less. I brought along some really nice Hornady 123gr 7.62×39 SST ammo to run through the brand new AR Pistol. The best thing you can do when function testing a new AR is to take it slow. I only had one ASC 7.62×39 mag so I loaded one round in the mag, pulled back on the charging handle, flipped the selector to “America” and pulled the trigger. As expected it went BOOM so I checked the chamber to make sure the rifle ejected the spent casing, which it did. After that first round goes as planned you get a bit of a smile on your face and start to have fun.

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

I loaded up another 5 rounds and proceeded to fire them down range sighting in the Vortex Optics Viper PST 1-4 scope.  First 3 rounds went through perfect but on the fourth I had a Failure To Feed. Keep in mind I only had 5 rounds in the mag to start meaning this was the second to last round in the mag. I stripped the mag, removed the round and inspected it noticing that once the mag was removed the round didn’t really seem to be stuck or anything. I loaded another 10 rounds and again, second to last round FTF. This was a recurring theme and it became very clear that the issue was with the mag and definitely not at all a problem with the Upper, BCG or Barrel. Other than the second to last round of each mag issue I had absolutely ZERO malfunctions with this build. It really was a pleasure to shoot. I’ve heard the ASC mags get better as you wear them in but I will also be looking into some other brands and will do a followup article specifically regarding 7.62×39 AR Mags.

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

So after blowing through almost all of my ammo getting to know the 7.62×39 AR Pistol, I saved the last 5 rounds to get a little grouping on paper. Now keep in mind, when I test fire my AR’s I always go to the shorter range. Its basically a 30-35 yard range that typically has less people on it. When I shoot for groups I usually head on over to the 100 yard range but being that this is just an AR Pistol, I had no bipod, etc I decided to stay on the shorter range and just get a group there. The image below shows you a 5 round group, just resting the handguard on a block. I’m positive I could tighten this group up but I was out of ammo. One of these days I’ll get it out on the 100 yard range and get some longer range data. I was very happy with this group though based on the distance I would expect to shoot this rifle at in a real world situation. 

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

Overall, I am very pleased with this build. Aside from the magazine issue, all of the parts functioned flawlessly. KAK Industry really is a one stop shop for tons of AR Parts including 5.56, 300BLK, 7.62×39, 458 SOCOM and .308 builds. This is not my first experience with KAK Industry and I’ve enjoyed every part I’ve purchased from them. For this specific build you can check out the KAK 7.62×39 AR Parts here. For all other builds just visit the KAKIndustry.com website and get to looking around at the awesome stuff they offer.  

New!! Ares Armor Nickel Boron MK1 Mod0 BCG – Just $99

Posted on September 11th, 2014 by ar15news

Toward the beginning of this year, Ares Armor released their first NiB Bollt Carrier Group. This Summer they introduced an improved model with the MK1 Mod0 designation for its new NiB Coating that features a proprietary method of perfecting the balance of the Sodium Borohydride reducing agent. They are also individually coating all components of the bolt carrier group prior to assembly.

Ares Armor NiB BCG 1

As with the original Ares Armor NiB BCG, this is a full auto model manufactured with an 8620 heat treated bolt carrier and a 9310 heat treated steel bolt. The bolt and extractor are shot peened and are MP batch tested with 20% of all product examined. The gas key is properly staked. Crane O Rings are utilized to increase tension on the extractor thus improving overall functionality. Our friends at PredatorArmament.com are now offering the new Mk1Mod0 BCG for $99.

NEW!! Umbrella Corporation Gen2 Premium Bolt Carrier Group

Posted on September 3rd, 2014 by ar15news

Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group recently released their new Premium Bolt Carrier Group and man this thing is sweet. As I’ve explained this BCG to many people already, its basically a “No Corners Cut” BCG. Every single part of the BCG production was scrutinized to make sure this BCG is as high quality as it gets. I was able to get my hands on one and wanted to take some pictures of it and share my initial review of the UCWRG Gen 2 BCG with you guys. That way you could make an educated decision as to whether this was the right BCG for you.

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 2

Not only does it feature the awesome Umbrella logo but the fit and finish is perfect. At first glance you wouldn’t think the coating is Phosphate because its much smoother than what is required to meet Mil Spec. They also went above and beyond using the best materials possible such as the 4340 Extractor (everyone else uses 4140; both are allowed by the M4 data package but since 4140 is less costly, it always gets the nod), using Carpenter Technology No. 158 gun quality aerospace steel alloy, etc. They also proof fire each BCG, clean and inspect to make sure every one is perfect before it goes out the door. 

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 1

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 3

Aside from the quality of the BCG, there is another aspect of it…which is that it looks really awesome. Whether you have UCWRG receivers for your rifle or not, seeing the Umbrella logo through the ejection port just looks cool. Of course if you do happen to be lucky enough to have some UCWRG receivers then this BCG will really tie everything together. 

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 4

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 5

Umbrella Corp WRG Premium BCG 6

Overall, I think the UCWRG Premium Bolt Carrier Group is the perfect upgrade for someone who wants only the best in their rifle. I’m really excited to put some rounds down range with this BCG. Once I’ve had some time to get a good round count with the rifle shown below, I will come back and do another writeup to let you know about my experience with it. At this point I would definitely recommend the UCWRG BCG to anyone. Having such a detailed list of components/features (listed below) makes it easy to see why this BCG would be a no-brainer. Not to mention at the introductory price of just $165 it is not much more than the “suspect quality” BCG’s I see floating around everywhere. If you want one for yourself, they are in-stock now at www.UCWRG.com.

Additional Details from the UCWRG website

Umbrella Corporation AR-15 Bolt Carrier Groups are our take on a premium, no snake oil, combat ready BCG. Each and every bolt is proof fired, ultrasonically cleaned, tested via magnetic particle inspection (MPI), and once certified, parkerized for corrosion protection and lube retention. In keeping with a superior product, we don’t utilize a Crane O-Ring as a crutch to increase extractor tension. Instead, our bolts are built with a mil-spec black insert coupled with a Tactical Springs 5-coil high load extractor spring that’s compatible with all DI gas system lengths. It’s rated for 150K+ cycles to outlast your rifle barrel many times over. We have improved on the finish requirement of the TDP and have chosen the best materials of those allowed per spec, not the lowest cost like nearly all of our competitors. This second gen product is manufactured to the highest standards with an unconditional guarantee against material defect and manufacturing failure. We challenge you to compare our Bolt Carrier Group specs against the competition. Beyond using Carpenter’s 158 alloy for the bolt, ask what alloy they use for their extractors, Extractor pins, ejectors, and whether their cam pins have a solid film lube per TDP. You will likely find they don’t advertise any of these specifications.  And don’t fall for the 9310 alloy bolt substitute; it is a less expensive, inferior alloy for this application. Bought into the hype and don’t believe us? Ask Carpenter Tech; they manufacture both materials and will without hesitation tell you 158 is the proper, superior alloy. The draw for 9310 is that it’s a decent material when heat treated properly though since there’s no spec, how do you know what “proper” might be for this application? It’s less costly, and you don’t have to buy mill run quantities for manufacturing. It’s the little things that make the real difference and we cut no corners with our Bolt Carrier Groups. as before, this initial first release is offered with a discount below our suggested retail pricing. Assembly/function check by a qualified Armorer is required.
