SHOT Show 2016 – Mega Arms

Posted on January 20th, 2016 by ar15news

Mega Arms never fails to deliver some amazing, top quality new products at SHOT Show and this year they did the same. Some of their new products include an absolutely sick Light Weight .308 rifle, 22″ 6.5 Creedmoor barrel, Dedicated .22lr upper and their new DogBone optic mount.

MEGA ARMS Small Frame .308 Rifles.
These rifles will be available this coming summer. These are “Small Frame” meaning most of the parts are AR-15 compatible parts aside from things like the barrel, mag well, etc.  This helps the 16″ .308 rifle weigh in at just 7.2lbs. Will be available in 18″, 16″ and SBR models. All models will come with an adjustable gas block. These will be available only as complete rifles.

Geissele’s Sneak Peek Christmas Present

Posted on December 29th, 2015 by ar15news

In case you missed it, just before Christmas Geissele Automatics gave AR owners all over the country a Christmas present of sorts by releasing a sneak peek at a couple of new products that will be coming soon. As you may already know, Geissele has been working on a new Scope Mount for a DOD (Department of Defense) customer since early 2015 and will be available for consumer purchase in 2016.

As if Geissele Scope Mounts weren’t good enough, just prior to Christmas they released an image that had every AR owners mouth watering. In the image (see below) there was a sneak peek at the new Geissele Ambi Charging Handle and Geissele T1/T2 micro red dot mount. The Ambi Charging Handle looks like it has a nice curve to the handles which should help you really get a good grip on it for ease of use and the T1/T2 mount looks low profile but stout.

Another new product coming soon is a new scope mount for the 50 BMG rifle. As you can imagine, due to recoil you can’t just use any old scope mount on a 50 BMG. The new Geissele 50 BMG Scope Mount will feature a 3 bolt design for the mount to rifle interface as well as a 3 bolt design for the scope ring caps to clamp on and hold the optic nice and tight over a larger surface area. If you own a 50 BMG rifle, this might be something to look into!

As you can see, Geissele isn’t just sitting around happy to be making Triggers and Rails. They are working continually to add more and more to their lineup all the time. Now if we could just talk Bill into making complete rifles we would be all set. :) For more information on Geissele product, head on over to www.Geissele.com.

Kinetic Development Group SIDELOK MRO Optic Mount

Posted on December 18th, 2015 by ar15news

KDG has just introduced the newest member of their SIDELOK family. The new SIDELOK MRO Optic Mount is you guessed it…for the new Trijicon MRO. The new SIDELOK quick attach/release mounting system is pretty amazing. With just one hand you can release the optic from the rifle and then push it back on and it locks in place. If you’re one of the many people who purchased the new Trijicon MRO red dot, you should definitely give the KDG SIDELOK MRO Mount a look.

KDG SIDELOK MRO Mount 2

The Sidelok is a revolutionary new mounting system for optics. The patented cam system locks the mount down onto picatinny without the need of tools, side levers, or huge knobs. The release system allows users to change out there optics on the fly with less hassle. The 2 levels of locks (MRO Mount) ensure the optic will not move unintentionally, maintaining zero for the shooter, and returning to zero when remounting in same position after removal. This mount utilizes a lower 1/3 co-witness.

Specifications:

Height (From top of Picatinny Rail): .88″

Width: 1.10″

Length: Base – 2.25″

Weight: 2.9 ounces (7.0 ounces total with optic attached)

Features: Lower 1/3 Co-witness

Finish: Black Anodized

Compatibility: Trijicon MRO Red Dot Optic

Rainier Arms has secured the exclusive intro and a special intro price on the new mount at just $119.95. Get in on this intro special at www.RainierArms.com.

American Defense Manufacturing just announced a few new red dot sight mounts. They are already well known for their Quick Detach scope mounts and red dot mounts but are adding a couple of cool options by way of a 33 degree and 45 degree offset mount for the Aimpoint T1/T2 red dot sight and the Trijicon RMR red dot sight.

American Defense Mfg T1 RMR offset QD Mounts

As you are probably already aware, engaging targets at close range with a traditional magnified scope is not an easy thing to do. Many guys will install offset backup sights which can take more time to align the front and rear sight if you need to rapidly acquire a target. By using an offset red dot sight mount you get the benefit of not having to align anything, just put the red dot where it needs to be and fire.  

Choose between 33 and 45 degree offsets and Left or Right hand style. There are other options out there but until today, none were being offered by ADM with their trusted QD system which is a big deal. You can check these out for yourself at the links below.

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.

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.

NEW!! Rainier Arms XTC 2.0 Pre-Order / Intro Price

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Rainier Arms just released the new XTC 2.0 muzzle device which is the newest variation of their original RA XTC. The XTC 2.0 expands on the original versions capabilities with the tuned first port that mitigates the muzzle rise while the extra side port keeps the rifle planted for faster repeated follow up shots. The XTC 2.0 also features compatibility with the coming soon Fortis Mfg Control Blast Shield. The overall look has been refined such as a machined in “RAINIER ARMS” on the bottom of the muzzle device but no other markings making for a very clean looking finish.

I have a few of them in my hands right now and I have to tell you, these things are sexy! Rainier Arms takes great pride in offering some of the nicest components for your AR’s and these show that. You can get in on the pre-sale for the new XTC 2.0 and save 15% but this sale is only for a short time.

There is no code needed for this pre-sale. The 15% has already been applied making the price just $67.95 which is a steal for a very nice muzzle brake. The new Rainier Arms XTC 2.0 for 5.56 can be purchased only at www.RainierArms.com
