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! Be sure to follow Centurion Arms on their social media outlets listed below to know when the pre-orders start.

Check out this pretty slick new lower from Vorn USA

Posted on January 4th, 2016 by ar15news

The other day I ran across these new lowers from Vorn USA. They are a forged lower receiver called the Lima 1 which features some sweet milling on the surface for weight reduction which looks really cool. I like that they did not machine all the way through which will help them maintain their strength and also keep dirt and dust out of the internals.

I couldn’t find a weight anywhere but as you can see in the photos below, they remove a decent amount of material. Not like an ounce or two is gonna break anyone’s back but ounces can add up. The lowers look pretty stinking sexy and for just $99 with your choice of Black Anodized or a number of different cerakote colors its not a bad deal either. They are also available in raw aluminum for those who want to do their own custom finish. 

Vorn USA Lima 1 Lower 2

Get the look of billet, but with the strength of a forging.

These receivers have been strategically milled to reduce weight and give a custom look.
–  USA Cerro Forged 7075 T6 Aluminum (keyhole forge mark)
–  100% correct Mil spec dimensions
–  CNC Aerospace precision machining
–  Mil spec finish with smooth clean anodize coat

Vorn USA Lima 1 Lower 2Also available in raw aluminum

Now to be 100% up front, until this weekend I had never heard of Vorn USA and I have never handled their product but they are working with some other legit firearms industry companies and seem to be good to go. If you’re interested in the new Lima 1 lowers from Vorn USA, head on over to their website and check them out. I may have to pick up a few of these myself. 

**Edit:  Looks like they are back in-stock.**

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.

IWC THORNTAIL INLINE MOUNT AND BACKBONE body 1

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.
