Fortis Mfg Billet Upper – Now Available At Intro Price!!

Posted on November 18th, 2014 by ar15news

We’ve shared a few sneak peeks of the new Fortis Manufacturing billet upper receiver and today we get to announce that they are officially available for purchase. As with most Fortis Manufacturing products they are offering an introductory price on this first run. The intro price is available through Revolvr which is an awesome firearms friendly market place. I’ve been buying stuff on there for months and love not having to use PayPal like on other sites.

The new 7075-T6 Fortis billet upper comes complete with the Dust Cover and Forward Assist already installed and features some really cool machining cuts around the Forward Assist and Shell Deflector areas as well as on the entire opposite side. One thing to note is that the Fortis billet upper will work with basically any rail including ones with Anti-Rotation Tabs which is typically a problem with billet uppers. Fortis did a great job removing all sharp edges on this thing and the finish is great. The biggest plus is the value. Right now you can purchase the new Fortis Billet Upper for just $179 with FREE SHIPPING at www.Revolvr.com. Now that’s a deal!

The Fortis Billet Upper is a precision piece, machined from Billet 7075 T6 aluminum. Like our other products, we designed this upper with function as well as form in mind. We shaved off the ounces where we could without sacrificing rigidity or strength. The end result is increased function and performance with the design aesthetics that we’re known for. See for yourself and you’ll see and feel the difference with our products.

Scalarworks has just released their new LDM with stands for Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint Micro (T-1 and H-1) optics.

An Updated Look At The Battle Arms Sub 4-Pound AR Project

Posted on September 10th, 2014 by ar15news

A while back I showed you guys a sneak peek at the OIP Lightweight (sub 4-pound) rifle that Battle Arms Development has been working on. At that time the OIP Rifle was in the very early prototype stages but just yesterday Battle Arms Development release a picture of Upper, Lower and Butt Stock that will be used on the new OIP Lightweight Rifle. The OIP Lightweight Rifle will be sold exclusively through Bentwood Gunsmithing. Battle Arms Development will be offering a slightly different version of the Lightweight Components for us DIY AR builders. For instance, according to Battle Arms Development, the Battle Arms version of the lower will have solid sides in the mag well but the recess pockets will be there. You can see the photo and details below. For more information regarding this new project be sure to follow the Battle Arms Development Facebook page

Battle Arms Development OIP Lightweight Rifle Components

Another sneak peek at the OIP Lightweight Upper, Lower, and Butt Stock in a special natural Type III hard anodize color. There are some natural fades from the anodizing process. The color also changes pending on the lighting condition and viewing angle from bronze to FDE to OD Green, Grey, etc. I think we will name it the Chameleon. Bentwood Gunsmithing is going to keep all the finish natural (no dyes) for the raw look.

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.

It features full ambi controls including a built in ambi mag release and looks awesome but its always been missing one thing…a San Tan Tactical billet upper! When San Tan Tactical announced they were designing a lightweight billet upper, everyone knew it was going to be a thing of beauty. Just today they officially released the first run of billet uppers and the machining and lightening cuts look amazing. It is machined to match perfectly with a San Tan Tactical billet lower but will look fantastic with any other mil spec dimension lower as well. This first run of uppers are being offered at a special introductory price as well at just $184.95 with FREE SHIPPING.

There are many different AR-15 upper receivers on the market today. When designing this one there were a few features that were addressed. It was created lighter, stronger, and all while looking good doing it. One distinguishing characteristic is the truss pockets. The truss design acts similar to a bridge that carries and distributes the stress across the entire platform verses putting all of the stress on the material right behind the threads of the receiver. It also in turn helps improve your accuracy. The new STT receiver also comes in at only 8.2 ounces. That’s lighter than some slick side uppers!

• Single billet 7075 -T651 aerospace grade aluminum
• Fully Assembled with forward assist
• Machined in T markings
• Interfaces with all AR15/M16/M4 weapons systems
• Mil Spec Type III class II hard coat anodized Black
• Only 8.9 Ounces
• Backed by STT’s unmatched lifetime warranty.
• Made in the USA! Small Made in USA flag

The first run of San Tan Tactical billet uppers are only available at www.REVOLVR.com.

You can purchase a matching billet lower for yourself new San Tan Tactical billet upper at www.SanTanTactical.com.

Special thanks to my buddy UWone77 for the photos of the upper. He gets his hands on stuff faster than anybody I know.

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.
