NEW!! Lehigh Defense NiB and Phosphate Bolts

Posted on December 19th, 2014 by ar15news

You may have heard already that Lehigh Defense, makers of some amazing ammunition, are now offering very high quality AR Bolts in 223/5.56, 5.45×39, 7.62×39, 6.8SPC, and 458 SOCOM. I recently got my hands on a Phosphate 223/5.56 and Nickel Boron 7.62×39 bolt and just from my initial inspection, they are very nice.

The bolts are done on one machine/station. This alleviates the stacking of tolerances from multiple fixtures. They keep their tolerances down to .0003” and have a propriety heat treat process which ensures consistent case hardness across the hole bolt as well as insuring consistent core hardness. The Bolt material is AISI 9310 VAR (vacuum arc remelt), which is the highest standard material used.

This weekend my plan is to get out to the range to test out both of these bolts. The Phosphate 223/5.56 will be used in my new SBR and the Nickel Boron 7.62×39 will be installed in my KAK Industry 7.62×39 AR Pistol.

If you’re looking for a new high quality bolt for your AR or just want to have an extra one laying around, you’ll be hard pressed to find nicer ones that these from Lehigh Defense. Check out their full list of available Bolts at www.LehighDefense.com.

Now Available – LANTAC E-BCG (Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group)

Posted on December 5th, 2014 by ar15news

The new LANTAC E-BCG is now available for pre-order. Don’t confuse this with any old BCG. If you want a seriously no-corners-cut BCG for that dream rifle you just built, then you need to check this thing out. They have basically tuned every part of this BCG that could improve function and reliability. It even features forward angled gas ports which are enlarged to help reduce the “gas in the face” issue most people experience when shooting suppressed. Check out the pics and details below. 

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 1

M16 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time. Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a shot peened bolt manufactured from Carpenter 158 and Magnetically Particle Inspected. The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UTC EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings. This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficent of .04 and surface hardness of 68-72 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.

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 2 copy

The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s lock position within the upper and makes it more consistent, resulting in an accuracy improvement. All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat and the bore of the carrier and gas key have been hard chrome lined for the best possible wear resistance.

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 3 copy

All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360 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 11.7oz weight helps to increase lock time and smoother operation. Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

Posted on November 9th, 2014 by ar15news

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.
