A while back the guys at Andro Corp Industry ran a short term special on their M4QR 10.5″ Complete Railed Upper that was an awesome deal. At the time I missed it until it was too late. I decided to reach out to Jason at Andro Corp Industries to see if they would extend the deal for us and they were happy to do so. The M4QR complete upper includes an Milsepc Forged Upper complete with M4 Feed Ramps, Forward Assist and Dust Cover, M16 BCG, Charging Handle, 10.5″ 4150 CMV barrel with 1:7 Twist QPQ (Nitride) finish, 7″ 2-piece quad rail, F Marked FSB and A2 Flash Hider. All uppers are test fired prior to shipping to ensure a properly functioning upper. This would be an absolutely awesome start to an inexpensive SBR or AR Pistol build.

BCM is proud to introduce its new line of:

BCM 300BLK 3

300 BLACKOUT
With multiple phases of field testing by instructors from the BCMGunfighter™ Program and subsequent revisions/optimizations made by the engineering team at BCM®, BCM is proud to announce a line of KMR-Alpha sleeved 300 Blackout carbines in Recce 16, CQB and pistol configurations. An extension of our MIL-SPEC quality 5.56 carbines, the BCM 300 Blackout line was developed to provide an extremely effective self-defense platform in a compact package.

BCM 300BLK 3

COMMONALITY OF PARTS
BCM 300 Blackout carbines use the exact same components, down to the magazines, as the rest of our carbine fleet with the exception of the barrels. This also means an end user can utilize both their existing magazines and AR accessories to fine tune the feel of their carbine, same as any other M4 or Recce rifle.

BCM 300BLK 3

PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING
Despite the additional capability, BCM 300 Blackout carbines still shoot flat. The additional recoil impulse is significantly mitigated by the BCM Mod 1 7.62/300 Blackout Compensator and with proper technique, it can be run as smooth as any 5.56 carbine.

If I ever get around to doing a full auto lower I will totally need to add an ARES Defense MCR belt fed upper. ARES Defense has been introducing a lot of new stuff lately and this new “Lite” version of their MCR upper is the most recent. Check out the press release below.

**Press Release**

MELBOURNE, FL, October 30, 2015 ­ ARES Defense Systems, the country’s leading manufacturer of innovative, mission-configurable firearms, parts and accessories announced the introduction of its belt-fed MCR® Lite at NASGW in New Orleans. The MCR® Lite is an upper receiver assembly that fits standard AR15/M4 lower receivers and just like the full-featured MCR® (Mission Configurable Rifle) upper receivers, it features gas-piston operation, a true (3 second) quick-change barrel assembly and the ability to feed from M27 linked ammunition belts or standard AR magazines at the shooter’s discretion.

ARES Defense MCR Lite

“ARES Defense built its business on our belt-fed rifles and upper receiver assemblies which among others, have been purchased by civilians, US government and militaries overseas.” says Geoffrey Herring, President-CEO of ARES Defense. “At 8.5 lbs, the MCR® is the lightest and most portable belt-fed in the world and like all ARES Defense products is 100% Made in the USA. We recently released an engineering test video of our AMG-2 government model where we demonstrate a continuous 700-round burst of automatic fire to show the reliability of our belt-fed line. While the full-featured MCR® and AMG-2 models are a first choice for professional shooters, we wanted to provide a Lite model that allows recreational shooters to experience the thrill of our belt-fed systems at a fraction of the price of our full-feature models.”

The primary differences between the MCR® and the MCR® Lite is that the Lite model has a fixed gas port, aluminum feed tray, round feed roller housing and lighter barrel than the MCR®. Available for immediate shipment by ARES Defense and also being carried by distributors AMCHAR, RSR and others, the MCR® Lite carries an MSRP price tag of $2,995.
