BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 – Released for Purchase Today

Posted on October 10th, 2014 by ar15news

Earlier today, Bravo Company Manufacturing released their much anticipated BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 for purchase. Ever since we started seeing pics of these stocks in use with some of BCM’s industry partners its been on the must have list. The new stock is extremely low profile with an anti-snag design. It also features a new latch system that is more robust than your usual stock latch which will keep your rifles stock functioning correctly after being dropped or “mortaring” during malfunction clearing. 

Another thing that sets the Mod 0 stock apart from the rest is that it is modular. One such feature is the VBOST or Vehicle Born Operations Sling Tab can be added or removed. This tab is for positioning a thick rubber band, bungee or shooters riggers band to secure your sling to the rifle when not in use, especially during vehicle born operations so your sling doesn’t get caught on anything. If you’re expecting a steep price you’ll be pleasantly surprised that these are just $55.95 which is awesome for an all American made stock. Check out the pics and additional details below then head on over to www.BravoCompanyMfg.com to snag one for yourself before they’re all gone. I just purchased one myself.

LMT DMR556 Stock On Sale at Weapon Outfitters

Posted on October 6th, 2014 by ar15news

LMT recently introduced their new DMR stocks. Many people have said “They’re just copying the Magpul PRS”, etc but in actuality they’ve made it possible for the 99% of owners who currently have a collapsible stock on their AR to add upgrade to precision style stock similar to a PRS but without the need to change over to a rifle buffer tube, spring and buffer. You can literally take off your collapsible stock, slip on the new LMT DRM stock and have the feel of a fixed precision rifle stock. This saves you the cost and time of swapping receiver extensions and would be pretty awesome for someone who has a single lower receiver but multiple uppers such as an SBR upper and an SPR upper. Weapon Outfitters has the 5.56 version available in-stock right now and at about $30 cheaper than other retailers that I’ve seen. Check out the pics and details below then head on over to www.WeaponOutfitters.com to purchase one for yourself.

An Updated Look At The Battle Arms Sub 4-Pound AR Project

Posted on September 10th, 2014 by ar15news

A while back I showed you guys a sneak peek at the OIP Lightweight (sub 4-pound) rifle that Battle Arms Development has been working on. At that time the OIP Rifle was in the very early prototype stages but just yesterday Battle Arms Development release a picture of Upper, Lower and Butt Stock that will be used on the new OIP Lightweight Rifle. The OIP Lightweight Rifle will be sold exclusively through Bentwood Gunsmithing. Battle Arms Development will be offering a slightly different version of the Lightweight Components for us DIY AR builders. For instance, according to Battle Arms Development, the Battle Arms version of the lower will have solid sides in the mag well but the recess pockets will be there. You can see the photo and details below. For more information regarding this new project be sure to follow the Battle Arms Development Facebook page

Battle Arms Development OIP Lightweight Rifle Components

Another sneak peek at the OIP Lightweight Upper, Lower, and Butt Stock in a special natural Type III hard anodize color. There are some natural fades from the anodizing process. The color also changes pending on the lighting condition and viewing angle from bronze to FDE to OD Green, Grey, etc. I think we will name it the Chameleon. Bentwood Gunsmithing is going to keep all the finish natural (no dyes) for the raw look.

NEW!! Rogue American Apparel Logo’d B5 SOPMOD Stock

Posted on August 27th, 2014 by ar15news

I think its pretty apparent that I am an equal opportunity rifle stock owner but when it comes to naming a favorite, the B5 Systems Enhanced SOPMOD stock is right up at the top. In the words of Robbie Hart in the Wedding Singer, “I’m a big fan of B5 Systems Stocks. I like them, I use them, I have a few. I keep them on some rifles in my safe. I’d like to put more in that safe.” At least that’s how I remember it. 🙂  

My buddy Wes over at Rogue American Apparel told me about their own logo’d version of the B5 Systems Enhanced SOPMOD stock. Usually RAA focuses on making some awesome Warrior inspired T-shirts, Hats and Patches with a portion of the sales being donated to the Brother’s in Arms Foundation. With this stock, 10% of the proceeds from each stock will be donated to The Raider Project which connects MARSOC/USMC veterans with other veterans to help them transition smoothly, peacefully, successfully into the private sector. 

B5 Systems RAA SOPMOD Stock

This is an awesome cause to support. If you are like me and a big fan of both B5 Systems and RAA, its a no brainer to go with this awesome RAA Logo’d SOPMOD stock. Check them out at www.RogueAmericanApparel.com.

NEW!! Hogue AR-15 Stocks and Trigger Guards

Posted on July 23rd, 2014 by ar15news

Most people, even with limited gun experience, know the name Hogue. They are pretty synonymous with any type of rubber OverMolded grip for Handguns or Rifles. Recently they decided to add a few more products to their lineup. The recently released products include an AR-15 collapsible stock and a new G-10 AR-15 Trigger Guard. 

The Hogue collapsible stock made from a lightweight reinforced polymer coming in at just 8.3 ounces and features rubber OverMolded sections on the Buttpad and Cheek Rest area. The stock has an Anti Rattle design, 3 different QD sling attachment points and is made in the USA with a starting MSRP of just $59.95. Details and purchasing info at www.HogueStore.com.

The other recent addition we mentioned is the G-10 Trigger Guard. These Trigger Guards come in the standard Flat style and in a Contoured (aka Winter Trigger Guard) style. G-10 is a very strong lightweight material that is typically used in making knife handles. I’m not so much a huge fan of the straight design but the Contoured ones look pretty neat. These are also available at www.HogueStore.com starting at $24.95 each.

Had a nice time sighting in / function testing a couple of my newer AR’s at the range the other day. I typically shoot on private land but bench shooting is a good way to get your guns out, put some rounds through them and make sure they are running good. For the most part there were no issues but any AR builder will tell you it only takes one small issue to throw a monkey wrench in there.

620 CIV Tactical SPR AERO Precision AR Pistol Vortex opticsClick to enlarge

The rifle has an upper built by CIV Tactical using receivers are from Tactical Firearms Solutions. CIV Tactical used their excellent 18″ SPR barrel and Matched Bolt that are known for getting some extremely low sub-MOA results. I used an older Bolt Carrier with the supplied bolt and figured everything would be fine. When the rifle wouldn’t eject a single round I knew there was something going on. Instead of just giving up and using the other AR I brought I decided to try to figure out was the issue was. After trying 2 different lowers, 4 different mags and 2 different types of ammo I decided to try a different BCG. Swapped it out and it ran like a Sewing Machine. I know the Matched Bolt is good as it was test fired with that exact Bolt so it’s pretty obvious I can narrow it down to the Bolt Carrier such as a leaky Gas Key. Looks like I threw in my own monkey wrench.  LoL  

The point is if you think logically through your failures and start eliminating possible issues, you can quite often move past the issues with the rifle and still get in some good trigger time. Oh, and bring some tools and small parts with you when test firing a rifle for the first time.  🙂

The rail on the SPR is a Parallax Tactical FFSSR rail. It also has an ATLAS Bipod with ADM mouth and the Stock is the LUTH-AR MBA-1 that you can buy from www.MidwestPX.com. The AR Pistol is all AERO Precision with an Odin Works 10.5″ Barrel, Primary Weapons CQB comp and a KAK Industry Super Sig Tube. Both guns have Vortex Optics…optics.

NEW!! Magpul MOE SL Furniture

Posted on April 28th, 2014 by ar15news

tEvery once in a while my wife will say to me “What are the kids up to? They’re way too quiet!”. And of course I’ll go check and see they’ve decided to paint the play room with Mustard or some other condiment. Apparently the same goes with Magpul but when they’re being quiet they’re designing some cool new AR furniture. At the NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Magpul introduced their new MOE SL or “Slim Line” furniture for the AR-15. This includes the MOE SL Stock, MOE SL Grip and MOE SL Hand Guard as shown in the pictures below. Unfortunately we are looking at Fall of 2014 for a release date so don’t go stalling your current build waiting for these to come out. Just have another build scheduled for this fall. 🙂 You can still read the information about these new products and check out the pics below.
