Ever since I SBR’d my QC10 9mm AR I have wanted to put a Battle Arms VERT PDW Stock on it. I have the VERT PDW Stock on one of my other SBR’s and it truly is one of the only PDW stocks that I feel can be used on just about any AR, even full size rifles because of its integrated cheek rest. The only holdback was that the standard buffer. While it works great with 5.56 and 300BLK, it wasn’t designed to work with a 9mm AR’s. While similar to a standard AR, a 9mm AR is definitely a fickle beast. After some months of testing, fine tuning and tweaking, Battle Arms is ready to release their new 9mm Buffer for the VERT PDW Stock.

Battle Arms 9mm VERT PDW Stock 1

The new Battle Arms 9mm Buffer weighs 5.7 ounces which is a little lighter than you might expect to run on your 9mm AR (I have run as high as 10 ounce buffers) but what makes this different and  is their patented, Recoil Reducing, Dual Spring Buffer Design which will help soften the recoil impulse and smooth things out considerably.

The BAD VERT 9mm PDW Buffer will be sold as an upgrade item for those of us who already have a VERT stock in hand and will also available as a complete 9mm VERT PDW Stock System as well.

No matter how you slice it, this is an awesome upgrade to one of, if not THE best PDW stocks on the market. I have a BAD VERT PDW Stock that has been waiting for this day and soon will get put to work on the 9mm QC10 SBR. You can buy the buffer or the complete stock system at the links below. If you snag one, make sure you tag us in your pics on Facebook and Instagram so we can see what you guys are all running.

If you’ve followed AR15NEWS for any decent length of time you’ve probably noticed we build lots of ARs. Some times, as an AR builder, it’s easy to get in a rut and kind of build the same thing over and over again which gets boring. All it takes is a bit of imagination and planning and your next build can be the best one you’ve ever put together. This is the very case with my most recent build. 

Believe it or not I had SBR’d this Rainier Arms forged lower well over a year ago but had no idea what I wanted to do with it. Then it came to me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. From there it was just a matter of time before I had the parts in hand and ready to build.

Lets start out with a few closer shots. From this angle you can see the Rainier Arms ambi safety, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle and Scalarworks OPS (On Point Sights) fixed rear sight.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 1 - Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Juggernaut Tactical Ambi Charging Handle - Rainier Arms Ambi Safety

As I mentioned above, this build got started as a Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC lower that I bought and Form 1’d just before the ATF41P effective date. I added a Rainier Arms forged upper and ambi safety, CMC Triggers Flat 3.5lb Trigger and LPK, Superlative Arms Piston Kit, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle, Geissele MK4 rail and Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights and Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint T1 and a SureFeed Magazines 20 Round mag.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 2 - CMC Triggers Flat Trigger Geissele SMR MK4 rail Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Aimpoint Micro T1 Rainier Arms A-DAC

Of course as a Rainier Arms SBR build I chose to use their 10.5″ .223 Wylde barrel. Covered it with a Geissele MK4 rail, Arisaka Defense 300/IR Series Scout Light and Inline Scout Mount, SureFire SR07 switch, Scalarworks OPS Fixed Front Sight, Magpul vertical grip and Griffin Armament Taper Mount Supresspr Mount. The Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under there somewhere. 😜

Rainier Arms SBR Build - Geissele SMR MK4 - Arisaka Inline Scout Light Mount 300 Series Scalarworks OPS Front Fixed Sight magpul vertical grip Surefire SR07

Here’s another angle of the business end on the new Rainier Arms SBR build. From this angle you can now see how accessible the Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under the rail. This isn’t like many piston kits were you have one or two settings. Its more like a Piston Kit that has a built in fully adjustable gas block so you can really tune it in.

Rainier Arms SBR Build - Superlative Arms - Rainier Arms - Geissele - Scalarworks - Magpul = Arisaka Rainier Arms

This next shot gives you a better idea of how tidy things are on this build. It’s got everything I need and nothing I don’t. The Scalarworks OPS fixed sights and mount for the Aimpoint T1 are absolutely amazing. 

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms = cmc triggers = scalarworks = aimpoint t1 - juggernaut tactical - magpul - geissele

And here it is. Hope you guys enjoyed a pretty detailed look at my new Rainier Arms SBR build. In the end, this SBR turned out even better than I had pictured it but the initial imagination and passion to create another gun is what got it all started. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to just slap together the first complete rifle you can. Take your time with your next build, map it out, think about what would make you smile every time you see it and then build that. 

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms - geissele - cmc triggers - magpul - scalarworks - griffin armament - surefire = superlative arms piston kit - aimpoint juggernaut tactical

Here’s the full run down of parts for this build. If you want to copy it, be my guest. Would make for a great AR Pistol build too.  

Already had a chance to get the gas dialed in on the piston kit and man this thing is smooth. Will be getting some range time this week with this gun getting it sighted in. Will let you guys know how it runs soon.

Strike Industries first introduced their new Viper PDW Stock about a year ago and everyone’s been anxiously waiting for its arrival ever since. One of the coolest features of the Viper PDW stock is that it is spring loaded and fully extends with just the push of a button, meaning it can truly be operated with just one hand. Another awesome feature is that it includes a removable rubberized cheek rest. It also allows for the use of any BCG. 

Strike Industries Viper PDW Stock 2

Strike Industries Viper PDW Stock 2

The Strike Industries Viper PDW stock represents the pinnacle of ultra compact PDW systems. At the compressed position, the compact Viper PDW allows for effortless maneuverability particularly in close quarters and vehicular operations. With the press of a button, the rapid deployment system instantly springs to the extended position for greater shot stability. Previous PDW systems for ARs have been notorious for expensive proprietary systems, spotty reliability and poor ergonomics.

The Viper Stock is designed to able to drop into your existing platform. The buffer system is carefully engineered to provide for high reliability while allowing for the use of standard bolt carriers, allowing for multi-role use with a single system. The included flat wire spring increases bolt load despite the compact dimensions for greater reliability, even in extreme short barrel configurations.

In addition to mechanical reliability and performance, we at Strike Industries have also paid close attention to human factors to increase comfort and controllability. The low footprint shoulder weld is shaped to conform to the shoulder pocket for maximum stability and control even in compromised or unconventional shooting positions. Included with the Viper PDW is a rubberized cheek rest to create a comfortable cheek weld, a criticism of many competitor PDW systems.

Finally, a PDW stock without compromise. Strike Hard, Strike Fast with the SI Viper PDW.

CHECK OUT THE TORTURE TEST…

Strike Industries just announced that they are now accepting preorders for the new Viper PDW stock. As a preorder special, they are offering $25 off plus FREE SHIPPING on the stock only. The first batch is expected to ship in 45-60 days. (Late June, possibly sooner). Get your preorder in now at www.StrikeIndustries.com.

Bravo Company Mfg just introduced a new version of one of my favorite AR stocks. The new Mod 0 SOPMOD stock is very similar to the awesome BCM GUNFIGHTER stock but features a larger cheek weld area and still retains the original features of the GUNFIGHTER stock such as the VBOS Tab, ambi QD sling mounts, etc. I just got one of these new stocks and can’t wait to snag a couple more. Check out the press release and images below. The new BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD stock is instock now at www.BravoCompanyUSA.com for just $58.

BCM Mod 0 Sopmod Stock 2

BCM introduces the Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock, a drop-in replacement stock for the M4 Carbine, built to be lighter and more durable than base issue equipment with an enhanced contour for an improved cheek weld.

Delivering a consistent and stable platform, without sacrificing the clean snag free design of the Mod 0 Minimalist Stock released in 2014, the BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock is a product of continued refinement based on end user feedback and close work with leading tactical and weapons manipulation instructors and the end users they prepare for going into harm’s way.

BCM Mod 0 Sopmod Stock 2

Both the BCMGUNFIGHTER™ Mod 0 SOPMOD and the Mod 0 Minimalist stocks feature a patented internal latch system*, a built-in buttpad, a VBOS(Vehicle Borne Operations Sling) Tab and both an ambidextrous QD interface port and web slot for sling interface.

BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock 4

Like all BCM rifles and BCMGUNFIGHTER accessories, the Mod 0 Stocks are designed and made in the USA with the lightest and most durable materials to ensure components that last a lifetime.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems Inc, (Phase5WSI) introduced a few new products this year at SHOT Show 2017 but the one that really stood out the most was this awesome new AR buttstock called the UMS or Universal Mini Stock. The Universal Mini Stock is an ultra compact al metal stock that can be attached to virtually any buffer tube out there including standard carbine buffer tubes and many AR Pistol buffer tubes. This could come in really handy for guys running an AR Pistol buffer tube on their AR Pistol while waiting for the tax stamp to come in. Once their stamp comes in and the AR is registered as an SBR you can just add the UMS on instead of needing to remove the pistol buffer tube and install a carbine buffer tube that accepts a stock. Sounds like these are a couple months away from being available for purchase. Check out the video and picture below.

A few days ago I shared a sneak peek at the new Fortis Mfg LA (Lever Action) Stock. At that time all I had was a few CAD Drawings of the stock which looked awesome but was still hard to tell what it was going to look like. NOW….now I have some hotness! My buddy David was allowed to borrow a prototype LA-Stock that had been finished and install it on a rifle. Your opportunity to win one of these beautiful stocks and some pics can be found below!!

The Fortis Mfg LA Stock shown in these photos is still considered a prototype as there are a few tweaks that they are working on but you get a really good idea of what will be officially released in 1st Quarter 2017. The LA-Stock will not be a polymer stock but is a high end all aluminum stock with some actual carbon fiber accents. These won’t be cheap but they’ll be competitive with other aluminum stocks.

The guys at Fortis Manufacturing never stop! They are always looking at unique and innovative ways to improve or redesign parts for the AR. Their new LA Stock or Lever Action Stock is an all aluminum collapsible stock that can be adjusted using the handle that looks and moves much like a Lever Action rifle. Once you’ve adjusted the stock you use the Lever Action to clamp down on the buffer tube making for a stock with absolutely zero wobble. So far we just have computer generated photos which you can see below. I’ll be sure to update this article as more details and pictures become available.

When designing our newest line to our Fortis family of products, we spent a lot of time thinking about the over all design and function of our buttstock. Lightweight? Of course, we helped start the change in the industry with our lightweight designs – but we also like our products to be robust and withstand the abuse we throw at it. Form as well as function each and every product we introduce – that’s Fortis.

Introducing our newest part – our aluminum butt stock, the Fortis LA™. It’s an all aluminum Lever Action (LA) stock that utilizes mil-spec buffer tubes. That’s right – slip off the plastic stock and upgrade your rifle immediately. The lever action is what clamps down onto the buffer tube so there’s no rattle or movement and our patent pending design is is one of a kind.
