SHOT Show 2016 – Quarter Circle 10

Posted on January 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

I recently built a Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR and am kind of obsessed with the pistol caliber ARs. The one I built uses Glock mags which is cool since I carry a Glock but another reason I like it is that its pretty inexpensive to shoot and is a nice change from the standard AR. This year at SHOT Show, QC10 had some new components to show off including a new KeyMod handguard, a lower that takes MP5 mags and a new Side Charging upper. They announced that they will be creating lowers that take mags for the Sig 226, 229 and M&P and they will also be offering complete guns with pre-orders starting next week . 

The new KeyMod hand guards look pretty awesome. They definitely have their own unique style which is a good thing. Too many rails out there look pretty much the same. No ETA or price range yet.

Here’s a look at the Side Charging upper that QC10 partnered up with VLTOR on. This particular one is a prototype but gives you a good idea of what the final model will look like.

Last but definitely not least, that MP5 lower!! QC10 will be growing their list of mag compatible lowers this year to include MP5 mags, Sig 226 and 229 mags and Smith & Wesson M&P mags.

Definitely exciting to see Quarter Circle 10 growing so much and really just killing it with their new products. If you’re interested in building or buying a Pistol Caliber AR, Quarter Circle 10 is the company to watch this year!!

If you looked close at SHOT Show you just might have spotted the .308 Hexmag magazine. I haven’t heard any official dates as to when Hexmag will be introducing the .308 magazine but it sure it awesome to see that they are actively working on the magazines.

**NEW** ETS Group Glock 9mm Mags Available for Pre-Order

Posted on October 26th, 2015 by ar15news

I’m super stoked to see that ETS Group has put their huge line of Glock mags up for pre-order. These have been in testing for a while now making sure they are perfect and are going to be awesome mags. They are offering the 9mm mags first which will include G17 10 round limited, G19 10 round limited, G26 10 round, G19 15 round, G17 17 round, 22rd Competition Legal and G18 31 round mags with a translucent body at a fantastic price point.

I know, you’re probably wondering, “Why is AR15NEWS so excited about Glock mags?”. Its simple, I carry a Glock 19 (9mm) every day and many of you do as well. Aside from that, I also recently built a 9mm Quarter Circle 10 AR that takes Glock mags which is the main reason I want some of these mags. I’ll be putting in an order for a few 22 and 31 round mags as soon as I get done writing up this post. I’ve put some pics and links to all of the ETS Group Glock Mags below.
