NEW!! Badrock Tactical 12″ & 15″ Free Float KeyMod Rail

Posted on September 8th, 2014 by ar15news

Badrock Tactical has just introduced their new 12″ and 15″ Free Float KeyMod rails. I’ve recently became aware of and started working with Badrock Tactical and they really seem to build some sweet rifles. Now add these awesome rails to the lineup and they’ve really got you covered. These new rails have KeyMod slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock spots as well as at the 45 degree angles as well, plus there are short picatinny rail sections up front on the sides of the rail. As mentioned, they are being offered in 12″ and 15″ length models. Both models will be available in Black, Gray, Camo, Pink Type III Hard Coat Anodize as well as a Raw unfinished version for you DIY’ers. These rails are light on weight but are also light on your wallet coming in at just $165 for the 12″ and just $175 for the 15″. Check out the pics and details below.

We are pleased to introduce the Badrock Tactical AR 15 Platform Free Float Hand Guard. As with all of our products, they are manufactured under some of the tightest quality and tolerance metrics in the industry using aircraft grade 6061 T6 billet aluminum for the hand guard and 7075 T6 for the barrel nut. These units feature Keymod slots at the standard 3, 6 and 9 O’Clock positions as well as Keymod on the 45 degree angle surfaces for maximum functionality and flexibility for whatever purpose your rifle will serve. In addition to the Keymod slots (which all double as standard Quick Detach QD) you will find traditional QD holes mounted at 3 and 9 O’Clock at the base of the hand guard and 1913 Picatinny Mil-Spec Rails machined in at 3 and 9 O’Clock at the muzzle end of the hand guard. Our unique design allows for contoured fit for the operator’s hand that is easy to grip and comfortable to shoot. These will be offered in Type III Hard Anodize in Black, Grey, Camo, Pink and Clear. We will initially offer these in 12” and 15”, with a 9” version on the horizon.

NEW!! Geissele SMR MK8 M-LOK Rail Now Available for Purchase

Posted on August 28th, 2014 by ar15news

Geissele Automatics worked very closely with Magpul on the development of the new M-LOK system and actually designed the first M-LOK compatible rail which Geissele named the MK8. Since the introduction of M-LOK there have been a few MK8 rails like the one I have that have been shown in photos, etc and everyone has been asking “When can I buy a Geissele MK8 rail?”. Well, that time has finally come. Geissele now has Black 13″ SMR MK8 rails in-stock and available for purchase. 

Geissele SMR MK8 M_LOK Rail 1

One of the things I like most about the M-LOK design is that when you don’t have any accessories or rail sections installed, it doesn’t look like anything other than a normal handguard with rectangular cutouts. With KeyMod you have the Keyhole cutouts and it just looks funny.

Geissele SMR MK8 M_LOK Rail 1

The shape of the MK8 rail in specific is very comfortable in your hand not to mention their attention to detail in fit and finish is makes it just beautiful. As with all Geissele rails, they are absolutely rock solid and simple to install.

You probably don’t need me to tell you about Geissele’s reputation for making some of the highest quality Triggers and Rails. They’re about as close to perfection as it comes and are well worth every penny spent on their products. With companies like Magpul finally in full production of M-LOK accessories and parts, now is the perfect time to add a Geissele SMR MK8 rail to your collection. Head on over to www.Geissele.com and snag one for yourself while they are still in-stock.

556 Tactical SKR (Stryke KeyMod Rail) Sale

Posted on August 25th, 2014 by ar15news

Our friends over at 556 Tactical are having a sale on their SKR (Stryke KeyMod Rail). Recently I had the opportunity to shoot some photos of these rails and they are sweet. 556 Tactical and PWS partnered up together on this rail and gave it the awesome angled cut at the end to go along with the other rails that 556 Tactical has in their lineup. Out of all of them, this is probably my favorite. The SKR is available in both a 12.1″ and 15″ length and both models are on sale for a limited time. If you’ve been looking for a high quality rail system for your new build or just want to upgrade an older rifle, this is a great option. Check them out for yourself at www.556Tactical.com.

HK MR556A1-SD Rifle and Suppressor Available at Rainier Arms

Posted on August 11th, 2014 by ar15news

Heckler & Koch (HK) and Operator Suppressor Systems Inc. (OSS) have teamed up to bring the ultimate complete package to market. Their pairing has birthed the HK MR556A1-SD, which is a package combination of the amazing HK MR556A1 rifle, the new HK MRS KeyMod rail and the new OSS Suppressor giving you the already proven quality and reliability of the HK MR556A1 rifle with a more comfortable, usable design. This could quite possibly be the coolest thing I’ve seen all year.

HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2 HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2

The new HK suppressed MR556A1-SD is equipped with a cutting edge next generation of suppressor technology from Operators Suppressor Systems Inc. (OSS). It is coupled with HK’s unique new Modular Rail System (MRS) to provide the shooter with a high performance integrated weapon system.

The modular rail system (MRS) for the MR556-SD allows the shooter to place individual rail components and accessories anywhere along the length of the seven free sides of the forearm using the slotted interface. HK has been working with OSS to develop the next generation of advanced suppressors for the HK MR series of rifles and carbines.

These suppressors are comprised of two modules, a Back Pressure Regulator (BPR) and a Signature Reduction Module (SRM)™. The BPR1425™ on the MR556A1-SD captures and controls expanding gases instead of simply trapping the gas with baffles. To further reduce the sound signature of the MR556 and eliminate flash, the OSS SRM4 module can be added to the end of the BPR1425.

HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 2

Important Features of the MR556A1-SD MODULAR RAIL SYSTEM (MRS)

  • Repeatable rail segment mounting in any position along the 14 inch forearm (9 inch MRS also available)
  • Self-captured rail segment hardware
  • Two integrated Quick Detachable (QD) sling attachment points just forward of the receiver
  • Optional positionable QD mount attachment
  • Octagon profile allows the OSS suppressor to be installed/removed with the rail in place
  • MRS provides more comfort to the shooter’s support hand

OSS SUPPRESSOR

Typical 18 dB reduction with the BPR module installed without SRM Less than an inch of increased weapon length with just the BPR Eliminates up to 95% of the back pressure created by traditional suppressors Attenuates the noise signature without adversely affecting the operating system Redirection of expanding gas within the BPR reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise Greatly reduces weapon fouling Little increase in bolt speed Reduces component wear and overheating common to legacy suppressor designs Reduction in back pressure greatly diminishes toxic gases expelled back at the shooter Better weapon balance with over the barrel mounting of the BPR module Typical sound reductions measured at the shooter’s ear with the BPR and SRM4 installed <139 dB Components are designed to self-tighten during firing to prevent loosening Little to no impact shift transitioning from just BPR to BPR and SRM Typical MRTF (mean rounds to failure) 8000 rounds, semi-automatic Internal parts on both the BPR and SRM can be replaced

The HK MR556A1-SD gives the shooter the same outstanding MR rifle performance with the added benefit of more ergonomic handling and noise comfort of the new MRS rail system and OSS advanced sound suppression.

HK MR556A1-SD : OSS Suppressor 1

Obviously with a suppressor being part of the HK MR556A1-SD package you will have to wait a number of months before your paperwork comes back from the ATF, so the earlier you get in on this the better. Right now Rainier Arms has Serial Numbers on hand for Form 3 Transfers and is one of the only places you can order this kit right now. Check it out at www.RainierArms.com

NEW!! ERGO Grips UltraLight Z KeyMod Drop-In Rail

Posted on July 29th, 2014 by ar15news

Have you been wanting to upgrade the plastic “Glacier Guard” hand guards on your AR but don’t want to add a bunch of weight and don’t want to go with another plastic hand guard? ERGO Grips might have the perfect solution for you. They just introduced their new UltraLight Z KeyMod Drop-In rail. It is a 2-piece design that mounts in place of the standard hand guards without any disassembly. The new UltraLight Z KeyMod rail is machined from 6-series Aluminum and comes in a full size model as well as a slim model that doesn’t sit as low below the barrel. You’ll find KeyMod slots at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and a full picatinny section at 12 0’clock. The UltraLight part of the name comes from the 5.6 ounce weight which is lighter than say a Magpul MOE carbine length handguard which is polymer. These are available for purchase now in Matte Black (hard coat anodized) or in Dark Earth or OD Cerakote. Purchase at the links below.

Radical Firearms has teamed up with Seekins Precision to create the new “Radical Rail” which to me looks like a hybrid of the MCSRv2 KeyMod rail and a BAR quad rail. I’m really digging the looks. You basically have a full length 12 0’clock rail and shorter rail sections at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with KeyMod filling the rest of the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock surface. It definitely looks great. The internal diameter is large enough to easily accommodate most suppressors or muzzle devices such as the Noveske KX3, PWS CQB comp, etc. Plus you know if Seekins Precision made it, its good to go. Check out the pictures below. You can purchase the 15″ version now at www.RadicalFirearms.com.

The Radical Rail System offers a larger inside diameter designed to accommodate your suppressor or for those that like the feel of a full sized quad rail. At 1.8” inside diameter your suppressor easily fits inside and the cutouts on the rail aid in rapid cooling. The Radical Rail System features anti-rotation tabs, built in non-rotating QD sling mounts, Key-mod rails that allow you to run without rail covers, allows any accessories and is hard anodize coated and super awesome if we say so ourselves. The Radical Rail is available in three different lengths, 9”(13.1oz), 13”(18.6oz) and 15”(21.2oz). Installation is a breeze using the standard USGI barrel nut wrench and ships with all mounting hardware and shims for proper barrel nut alignment.. (This is a special Rail developed by Radical Firearms and Seekins Precision and is the exclusive rail used by OSS Mission Suppressors). 

Specs:
• 7075 Construction 
• 1pc free float design 
• Billet Aluminum barrel nut 
• Seamless top rail 
• Key-mod Design to accept any accessory 
• Mil-Spec 1913 Picatinny Rails
