Sneak Peek – LANTAC SPADA-M Handguard

Posted on February 10th, 2017 by ar15news

Lantac is about to release their new M-LOK version of their popular SPADA handguard and we’ve got some pictures. The new M-LOK models will be available in two variations, the SPADA-ML and SPADA-M. Basically the SPADA-ML removes the raised QD sling attachment points to reduce weight. The SPADA-M is shown below. Looks like I need to start planning a new build. 🙂

They started out making billet lower receivers, then added billet uppers, innovative billet lowers with intregrated PDW stock systems, AR-10 receiver sets and muzzle brakes. Most recently they have introduced their UHPR line of handguards. First was the MOD1 which deleted all but the very front of the 12 o’clock picatinny rail.

Griffin Armament Header Banner

Griffin AR15 rail kits include rail panels, gas block assemblies, and all tools and hardware needed for a turnkey rail system.

The design objective for the Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ rails were to provide a slim, ultralight M-LOK rail, with increased rigidity over current similar market options.

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 3

“We had been looking at the market for a while and noticed that there were two types of rails essentially. Rails that were beefy and strong, and rails that were slim and unfortunately weaker. We wanted to combine the desirable attributes of both category products into one optimal rail system.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on, “The final design resulted in 70% more rigidity than current similar market slim rails. This is important for those who need to use IR lasers as armed professionals or for hunting. There are a lot of great options now in IR laser aimer products that have solid mounting and solid bodies and we wanted to make a slim rail that provided industry leading point of aim / point of impact for those aimers.”

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 1

Low-Pro RIGID™ rails feature a 7075 aluminum barrel nut which can be installed with the included Griffin Armorers Wrench. The mounting is done with included shims and flat head cap screws for an ultra-flush and low profile mating to the receiver. 17-4 stainless QD flush cups are included which thread into the barrel nut through holes in the rail.  

The kits include the Griffin Primo Gas Block™, a 416R stainless .750” ID gas block which can be set screwed in place and / or pinned.

Additionally, the rail kits include the Griffin RAIL SHIELD™ panels as standard equipment. This 4 piece kit provides a 4.6” length surface for heat protection and griping. The user can choose to use the flat bottom panel or angled grip panel for enhanced recoil control.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems 15″ Lo-Pro Slope Nose M-LOK Rail

Posted on June 13th, 2016 by ar15news

Phase 5 Weapon Systems just introduced their new 15″ Lo-Pro Slope Nose M-LOK rail. This version is different from their other rails by removing all but the very front portion of the 12 o’clock picatinny rail as well as completely removing the short picatinny rail sections at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and replaced them with a full run of M-LOK attachment slots. You can read more about the new Phase 5 Weapon Systems LPSN M-LOK rail below.

phase 5 banner

The 15″ LO-PRO SLOPE NOSE M-LOK Free Float Quad Rail was developed to accommodate the features of our 7.5″ LPSN quad rail to a longer 15″ version. The LPSN15 M-LOK was inspired by beneficial features that shooters have requested and demanded from us and other manufacturers.

Phase 5 LPSN MLOK rail 2

M-LOK is a modular locking accessory mounting system that is a direct attachment method for hard mounting accessories to a negative space mounting point. Designed by Magpul Industries as an evolution of the MOE® slot system used since 2007.

The slender light weight design, longer nose, ease of installation and superior construction and finish quality are some of the features that we designed into this system.

The LPSN15 M-LOK undergoes a rigorous extra de-burring process in order to ensure a smoother snag free finish. The details and level of care during the manufacturing of the LPSN15 M-LOK makes it the perfect choice for your AR-15 rifle build.

Phase 5 LPSN MLOK rail 1

TRUE-FIT TECHNOLOGY UTILIZED WITH THE LPSN15 M-LOK. Phase 5’s True-fit™ technology was developed to secure the rail system onto the barrel nut with an accurate and solid full contact method around the entire surface area. The Phase 5 Weapon Systems Inc. True-fit™ rail attachment system gives the operator peace of mind and confidence that the system will not move or come loose. This is accomplished with 6 screws that form the rail with our True Fit feature around the barrel nut without distorting or pinching the rail at the bottom like in other rails on the market. Phase 5’s True-fit™ rail attachment system allows for the repeated removal and reinstallation of the rail without fatigue.

Overall Length:15 inches

Inner Diameter: 1.350”

The new LPSN M-LOK rail can be purchased at www.Phase5WSI.com.
