Aero Precision has grown a ton over the past 5 years. I still remember when they made standard forged upper and lower receivers and the COP Upper and that was it. Nowadays they make everything from AR-15 and AR-10 receivers to handguards to scope mounts to complete AR-15 and AR-10 rifles. Not to mention their capabilities with their sister companies Ballistic Advantage for barrels and VG6 Precision for muzzle devices. 

For a while now they have offered a handguard with a larger inside diameter which works awesome for tucking a suppressor underneath etc but some of their customers have requested a more low profile, slim handguard. That is why they started designing the new ATLAS S-ONE handguard.

The ATLAS S-ONE is the newest addition to the Aero Precision Handguard lineup. Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum, the S-ONE line of handguards are designed with size and weight in mind, providing the perfect handguard for your lightweight build. Our proprietary ATLAS attachment system is a durable and dependable mounting platform, maintaining a slim profile while still providing the strength and stability customers have grown to love from Aero Precision handguards.

The new Aero Taper Lock Attachment System (ATLAS) is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It features 2 mirrored tapered locking nuts that provide evenly distributed clamping pressure across a custom engineered barrel nut with use of a turnbuckle screw. A ratcheting detent further secures the design while providing positive registration during installation. By design, the even pressure of the ATLAS system avoids distortion of the handguard often seen with current applications during installation.

You’ll also notice at the 12 o’clock position on the handguard there are raised lines. When I handled the first ATLAS S-ONE off the machines at TriggrCon last month, the first thing I noticed was how good it felt in the hand and that those raised lines add just a little extra traction without being uncomfortable at all.

Aero Precision is will be offering the new ATLAS S-ONE handguards in 12″ and 15″ lengths (7″ and 9″ coming soon) with your choice of KeyMod and MLOK and Black or FDE. And if you want to take it one step further, you can even get it paired with the new Gen2 Forged Upper as well.

You can get your order in now for this first run of ATLAS S-ONE handguards with an expected ship date of 8/25/17. Head on over to www.AeroPrecisionUSA.com to pick out your new ATLAS S-ONE handguard.

Tyrant Designs has continued to rapidly grow their line of AR15 grips with the addition of their new HALO Series HandStop. The HALO Series HandStop shares similar curves and style as the HALO MiniVert foregrip but with a shorter body. It also is compatible with both KeyMod and MLOK….just swap the mounting hardware and you can use it on whichever rail system you want. Just like the HALO MiniVert, the HALO Series HandStop is made completely out of aluminum and has had all of the edges chamfered for a very comfortable feeling in your hand.

All of the parts have a dark gray base cerakote finish and the receiver set has a silver American Flag as well that looks awesome. As always, this is a limited edition set and once it’s gone it won’t be coming back. Get your hands on this unique builder set at www.AEROPrecisionUSA.com

Seems like Tyrant Designs keeps making cooler and cooler looking products. This new MOD ForeGrip is the first in a series of ForeGrips that will be made by Tyrant Designs CNC. The main body of the grip is metal with polymer finger straps and is compatible with both KeyMod and MLOK handguards. Definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of this line. Check out the press release and images below.

TYRANT DESIGNS CNC ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST OF THEIR NEW LINE OF FOREGRIPS, THE MOD ForeGrip SERIES!

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips, has announced the release of their new line of foregrips. The MOD ForeGrip, available in black, red, blue (soon), and grey is CNC machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum. The grip weighs in at a lightweight 1.7 ounces and is fully M-LOK and Keymod compatible.

The MOD ForeGrip is the first installment in our new line of foregrips! Designed to match our very successful MOD AR-15 Pistol Grip, it too has an aluminum body with a polymer finger strap. With a specially designed mounting system, it is compatible with both M-LOK and Keymod rails. Meaning with just a quick change in hardware (that is supplied with the grip when purchased) it can be mounted on either type of rail system. We believe that this is the type of versatility that operators need in order to furnish multiple weapons. The polymer strap helps the operator instantly feel comfortable with the foregrip and give them the confidence needed for any type of situation. We feel that foregrips are a great solution for anyone who desires more muzzle control, and we look forward to adding more to this line in 2017!  “

Tyrant Designs CNC is an AR accessories manufacturer based just outside of Chicago. They have had several successful designs for AR pistol grips and have plans to expand into other AR accessories for 2017.

Tyrant Designs has expanded their grip options to now include the MOD ForeGrip. The MOD ForeGrip features an all metal grip body with polymer straps that are similar in design and looks to their most popular pistol grip called the MOD Grip. The MOD ForeGrip is available in Black, Gray and Red and will definitely add a cool look to your AR.

After using a number of Ballistic Advantage barrels in builds over the last few years I can definitely tell you they make some awesome barrels that somehow stay budget friendly.

Nobody imagined there would be 44 different configurations available right off the bat. With that many options, you definitely should be able to find exactly what you’re looking for. You get to choose between .223 Wylde, 5.56 NATO and 300BLK calibers, different barrel lengths, different muzzle device options, BCG options, etc. They even come with a cool new rail made by VLTOR specifically for Ballistic Advantage.
