**NEW** Cloud Defensive Light Control System

Posted on October 1st, 2016 by ar15news

Do you have a SureFire ST07 Tape Switch? If you’ve bought any SureFire Scout Lights chances are you have an ST07 somewhere. If you’re like me, almost all of them are in a box of spare parts in my gun room because I upgraded to something like the expensive SR07 rail grabber tape switch or went with the clicky tail cap. The ST07, to me, is pretty useless straight out of the box. Its a good switch but I don’t like zip tying, taping or velcro’ing it to my gun. However, the ST07 may have found new life.

surefire-st07-tape-switch

A company called Cloud Defensive just introduced their new LCS (Light Control System) which is a mount specifically designed to securely attach your ST07 to any 1913 picatinny rail section. Most shooters will prefer to mount it to the top (12 o’clock) section of the rail but I assume you could even use an offset picatinny rail mount as well. The LCS also has the option of the ICC (Integrated Cable Clamp) which helps route the cable of the ST07 tape switch and keeps it from being able to get snagged on anything. 

cloud-defensive-light-control-system-1

cloud-defensive-light-control-system-1

Introducing the Light Control System (LCS) with optional Integrated Cable Clamp (ICC).  Designed for the Surefire ST07 tape switch. A vastly superior mounting platform for your tape switch that allows you to secure excess cable under the mount. No more improvised mounting solutions. No more weak links on your rifle. Two problems solved with one product.

Another reason why the LCS mount might be just what you’re looking for…its just $50. You can also upgrade to the LCS with the Integrated Cable Clamp for another $10 more. Cloud Defensive just put these up on their website so head on over to www.CloudDefensive.com and get one today.

3 New Products from Arisaka Defense

Posted on August 25th, 2016 by ar15news

Arisaka Defense recently added 3 new products to their lineup so we figured we’d tell you about them all in one post. 

First is the Low Profile Bipod Mount for Harris S-series (S-BR, S-BRM, S-L, S-LM, S-25, and S-25C) Bipods. The Low Profile Bipod Mount replaces the entire stock sling swivel interface with a minimalist Picatinny mount. Rotation limiters allow for approximately 15 degrees of cant to either side for leveling, and the mount is compatible with pod lock levers.

Arisaka Low Profile Harris S Bipod Mount 2

The Low Profile Bipod Mount places the bipod 1/8″ below the Picatinny rail, greatly reducing the overall height. Combined with its weight at just over one ounce and a short 1.4″ length, it significantly reduces bulk compared to the stock mount. Machined from billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized, the Low Profile Bipod Mounts are built for rough use and long term reliability.

Arisaka Low Profile Harris S Bipod Mount 2


Next up is the Low Profile Picatinny Rails for KeyMod and MLOK. These 5 slot rails feature a reduced height to pull Picatinny accessories closer to the handguard. They also utilize three KeyMod or M-Lok fasteners which will spread the increased stress of large Picatinny accessories like bipods or vertical grips over more slots on the rail.

Arisaka Low profile picatinny rail keymod mlok

The Low Profile Picatinny Rails are machined out of billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized.

Proudly made in the USA and available now on the Arisaka site:

Low Profile Picatinny Rail KeyMod

Low Profile Picatinny Rail M-Lok


Last but not least is the new SureFire M620 Adapter for Offset Scout Mounts. The Offset M620 Adapter allows Surefire M620 Scout lights to be used with our Offset Scout Mount, and preserves the adjustability, allowing for side to side placement for additional clearance around front sights or other top rail mounted accessories. The wrap-around design also keeps the light on the same plane as a M300 or M600 Scout light used without the Offset M620 Adapter.

The Offset M620 Adapter is machined from billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized for durability.

Geissele Memorial Day Sale

Geissele Memorial Day Sale 1

I ran across this graphic on the Geissele Automatics Facebook page today and wanted to share it with you guys. I’ll be the first to admit I have been a little out of the loop on the Geissele Super Precision Scope Mounts but this graphic surprised me as I had no idea they were offering 3 different variations of the AR15 / M4 Scope Mounts. These mounts are basically the same mounts that Geissele builds for the Unites States SOCOM (Special Operations Command) and have been getting rave reviews by those that have had their hands on them so far. 

Geissele Automatics Super Precision Scope Mounts

The AR-15/M4 Super Precision series of scope mounts are optimized for use with an AR-15/M4 upper. The mounting surface spans 7 picatinny sections and utilizes 4 shear lugs. These mounts use Geissele’s update of the classic nut and bolt method for clamping the mount to the picatinny rail, which is the most secure method of attaching your scope to your weapon. Each nut and bolt combination provides 1,400 pounds of clamping force, much more than any lever mounting arrangement.

The Geissele Automatics Super Precision scope mounts are available in a Standard, Extended and Hyper Extended configuration with the additional options of 30mm or 34mm ring size, a 20moa built in Cant and your choice of 7075-T6 Aluminum or 2099 Aluminum Lithium Alloy.  You can take a look at and order your own here: https://geissele.com/ar15-m4-super-precision-scope-mount.html

You can take a look at the entire line of Geissele Automatics Super Precision Scope Mounts including the Big Bertha and SOPMOD Certified mounts at www.Geissele.com.

Seekins Precision 1-Piece Scope Mount

Posted on April 13th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve heard that Seekins Precision will be releasing information on their new Scope Mount very soon. Not sure exactly when but until then I thought I would share a sneak peek at the new mount. These photos were posted on their Facebook page. 

Seekins Precision 1-piece Scope Mount 1

Seekins Precision 1-piece Scope Mount 1

Seekins Precision 1-piece Scope Mount 1

The photos that Seekins Precision has shared so far show a cantilever style 30mm scope mount that has two picatinny rail clamps that are secured by two large Torx screws. No word yet if there will be other styles, models or additional options to choose from but this version looks awesome. As you can see it looks great with both smaller 1-4 and 1-6 optics as well as larger magnification optics. Keep an eye out for more information on the new Seekins Precision Scope Mounts coming soon.

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.

Geissele Automatics Scope Mount 1Photo by Johnny Danger

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.

Geissele Automatics T1-T2 red dot mount and Ambi Charging Handle

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!

Geissele Automatics Scope Mount 2

Geissele Automatics Scope Mount 3

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.
