Centurion Arms Adds KeyMod and M-LOK to the CMR Lineup

Posted on January 21st, 2016 by ar15news

This week at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Centurion Arms sneakily introduced two new versions of their extremely popular CMR rail in the Magpul and BattleComp booths. The CMR rail is a very slim, rugged, tubular rail. It features threaded holes every couple of inches to bolt the CMR rail covers, hand stops, etc to but most accessories made by other companies are designed to attach to 1913 quad rails, KeyMod rails or M-LOK rails. Now you can get the CMR in your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK as well.

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

Now that you can choose KeyMod or M-LOK, it really opens up a whole new world of usable accessories you can attach to your CMR rail. I’ve got a ton of grips, light mounts, hand stops, rail sections, rail covers, etc. just waiting for an awesome rail like this. I immediately installed the CMR M-LOK rail on my CIV Tactical SPR build. The ability to add a picatinny rail for my bipod via M-LOK (or KeyMod for that matter) is quick and painless. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The overall profile of the new CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails is very similar to the original CMR and still features anti-rotation tabs. The barrel nut is also very similar, in fact the new rail will mount to an older CMR barrel nut, but Centurion Arms actually modified the new barrel nut to be able to tighten them using a standard AR-15 castle nut wrench. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The production model CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails will have QD Sling Mounts at the front and rear of the rail on each side just like the original (the ones in my photos were pre-production) and will be available in both 15″ (shown) and 13″ models.

MSRP on the new rails will run $240 for a 15″ and $230 for a 13″. Centurion Arms will start taking pre-orders at the beginning of February at an introductory price of just $200 for a 15″ or $195 for a 13″ and start shipping units around the end of February. Centurion Arms is an awesome company owned and operated by a retired Navy SEAL. Lets show them some support!

Mega Arms Releases New Versions of the Wedge Lock and MKM

Posted on December 6th, 2015 by ar15news

Mega Arms has just announced the are now shipping two new products. First, they’ve now added KeyMod to their ever growing lineup of Wedge Lock hand guards. This is great to hear as, despite its popularity, not everyone is running M-LOK just yet. Second, they have also made a few tweaks to the KeyMod rail of their awesome MKM MATEN upper. Both products should be available from all major Mega Arms retailers any day. 

The KeyMod Wedge Lock hand guard is very similar to the M-LOK version they launched first and offers KeyMod slots at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with short KeyMod slots at the 45 degree angles at the front top of the rail for light mounts, etc. These are some seriously good looking rails. For more information on the new Mega Arms KeyMod Wedge Lock hand guard go to www.MegaArms.com.

Mega Arms KeyMod Wedge Lock Handguard 1Mega Arms KeyMod Wedge Lock Handguard 1

The updated version of the MKM MATEN (.308) upper still has the KeyMod sections at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock spots but now features very nice looking cooling slots at the 45 degree angles except for at the very front top of the rail where they have short KeyMod sections. This makes for a much sleeker looking rail while retaining the ability to mount a light or laster on the forward most 45 degree angles. For more information on the updated version of the Mega Arms MKM MATEN upper go to www.MegaArms.com.

NEW!! THORNTAIL INLINE Light Mount & BACKBONE Scout Body

Posted on December 2nd, 2015 by ar15news

Impact Weapons Components and Haley Strategic Partners have a history of working closely together to create some great light mount solutions. Their latest creation is the THORNTAIL INLINE light mount and THORNTAIL BACKBONE replacement Scout bodies for the M300 and M600. 

IWC THORNTAIL INLINE MOUNT AND BACKBONE body 1

The THORNTAIL INLINE light mount is a cantilever design that pushes the light forward, letting you mount the light just forward of your support hand for easy access to the tail cap. On the mount are two sets of mounting holes that let you mount the light further or closer to the rail to work well with other accessories on your rail such as front sights or lasers. The mount also features the BCM reverse KeyMod screws and can be used with any Scout light.

IWC THORNTAIL INLINE MOUNT AND BACKBONE body 1

Along with the new mount, IWC and HSP also introduced a new set of Scout replacement light bodies called the THORNTAIL BACKBONE. The new BACKBONE is slimmer and lighter than the standard Scout body and feature Four more lateral (side to side) mount holes that let you position the light right where you need it to be instead of the single position you get with a standard SureFire Scout light.

IWC THORNTAIL INLINE MOUNT AND BACKBONE body 1

As I mentioned, both the new THORNTAIL INLINE mount and BACKBONE bodies can be used with existing scout products but where they really shine is when they are used together. Pairing the INLINE mount with the BACKBONE body gives the user nearly a half of an inch of side to side adjustment for the perfect placement.

These are both available for purchase now at www.ImpactWeaponsComponents.com. If you want to save 5% off your order, use the discount code “ar15news” at checkout.

NEW!! BCM KMR-Alpha Rail

Posted on October 20th, 2015 by ar15news

Bravo Company USA has just announced their new BCM KMR-Alpha rail is now shipping. Although the appearance is unchanged, the new KMR-Alpha is made from an Aircraft Grade Aluminum alloy vs the Magnesium alloy the current KMR is made of. Take a minute to read about the new KMR-Alpha rail and check out the pictures below.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Shipping Now !

The definitive modular combat rail is now also available in an Aircraft Grade Aluminum alloy. With seven mounting surfaces, the KMR-Alpha is a modular handguard that uses the KeyMod system to attach accessories such as lights, lasers, vertical grips, handstops and more.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Utilizing the same patented (US 8904691) free float barrel nut lock up, the KMR-Alpha uses the identical mounting hardware as the original KMR. This new addition to the KMR family only weighs 6 ounces plus 2.2 ounces for barrel nut and hardware (Note: KMR-A10).

Each KMR-Alpha includes a BCM® KeyMod QD Sling Mount and is available in 15″, 13″ and 10″ as well as 9″, 8″ and 7″ sizes.

KeyMod is the industry standard for a repeat zero modular system. KeyMod mates the handguard and the accessory with a chamfered interface that self-aligns for consistent, repeatable mounting. This self-aligning interface is the same basis for the Picatinny 1913 rail system proven in combat by the US Military since 9/11.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 2

The KMR uses a patented lock up system where self-locking cross bolts apply force at the 12:00 position of the handguard equally distributing force around the surface area of the rail. This also insures continuous top center alignment of the rail and mitigates forwards/backwards movement of the handguard when the weapon system is fired.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Special Introductory SALE Pricing !

KMR-A15, $199.95

KMR-A13, $189.95

KMR-A10, $179.95

KMR-A9, $176.95

KMR-A8, $171.95

KMR-A7, $171.95

And ALL KMR-A Handguards include a FREE BCM KeyMod Sling Mount! (a $20 retail value!)

The new KMR-Alpha rail from Bravo Company USA is available for purchase now at www.BravoCompanyMfg.com.

NEW!! 16.5″ Vella Industries Trident Rail System

Posted on October 5th, 2015 by ar15news

For most AR builds, the usual 12 – 15 inch long rail system/hand guard will do just fine but there’s always that one build that you wish you could have found a bit longer rail to put on it. Unfortunately barely anybody makes rails or hand guards that are longer than 15 inches. Well, here’s one to definitely add to the list for future long barrel builds. The new Vella Industries Trident Rail System is 16.5 inches long but weights just 8 ounces (11.5 ounces with barrel nut and screws). It also has some pretty sexy looking lines with the KeyMod sections on the sides and bottom and M-LOK along the top.

The front end of the rail really gives it a custom look with side cutouts to allow the use of muzzle brakes without damaging the rail on 16″ builds.

Arisaka Defense Releases Inline & Offset Picatinny Mount

Posted on September 25th, 2015 by ar15news

Arisaka Defense always puts out high quality products. I personally use a bunch of their products from Light Mounts to complete Flashlight Builds. Just this morning I received the following press release for their Inline and Offset Picatinny Mount. As you all know, KeyMod and M-LOK rails are great but what do you do with all of your lights, lasers, grips, etc. that only mount to Picatinny rail sections? You need an adapter like the ones Arisaka just released to make them compatible. What I really like about these mounts is that they are adjustable from side to side to allow a wider range of lights and accessories to fit and the KeyMod mounts incorporate the new patent pending Inverted KeyMod Screws from BCM instead of the normal. Take a look at the press release and pics below for these great mounts.

Press Release:  Arisaka Inline & Offset Picatinny Mounts Released

Arisaka is pleased to release our new Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts. The Inline version is available for KeyMod and M-Lok, while the Offset version is available for KeyMod, M-Lok, and the Centurion Arms CMR. Both KeyMod mounts utilize Bravo Company’s Patent Pending Inverted KeyMod Screws.

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

The Inline Picatinny Mount is designed for rail systems that feature 45 degree attachment interfaces, like the BCM KMR, Geissele SMR MK4 and MK8, Mega Arms MKM/MML/Wedge Lock, and Midwest Industries Generation 3 handguards. The height and adjustable side-to-side spacing place Picatinny based lights like the Surefire X300 and Inforce WML close to the handguard and within easy reach at the 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions.

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

The Offset Picatinny Mount is a combination of our Offset Scout Mount and a short Picatinny rail section, and is designed for rail systems that do not have 45 degree attachment interfaces like the Noveske NSR, Midwest Industries Generation 2, and SLR Rifleworks Solo Series handguards. Like the inline version, the mount places Picatinny based lights at the optimal 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions. The mount allows the user to adjust the lateral positioning of the Picatinny rail section for additional clearance next to front sights or other accessories.
