SHOT Show 2015 – LANTAC

Posted on January 23rd, 2015 by ar15news

LANTAC has some pretty awesome product coming out this year. They have new billet receivers, their new SPADA rail system, BMD – Blast Mitigation Device, Drop-In Trigger, BCG, etc. I have quite a few of their new products on my list to buy this year and can’t wait to try them out. Check out the video and pic below.

For a while now the main thing that has been missing from the whole KeyMod and M-LOK rail push is companies that were willing to create direct mount products for these systems…and that is understandable when you think about how fast this industry moves from one new solution to another. Look how fast M-LOK has taken off because its backed by Magpul. Up until now most companies have been making adapters for existing products such rail sections that allow you to attach a 1913 picatinny product, a light ring for adding a light, etc. This mindset kind of goes against the whole “new attachment method” thought process which should create products that attach directly to the rail without the need for adapters thus reducing weight, cost, etc.

Well, today I am proud to announce a new partnership between two very respected companies in the industry that have come together to create an amazing new product. Elzetta Design, makers of the toughest and highest quality flashlights known to man and Impact Weapons Components, one of the most innovative Mount and Accessory manufacturers have partnered up together to introduce the new MINICQB which combines their new ALPHA light and IWC’s modular light mounts into a weapon light. This is a true “Direct Attach” Weapon Light.

IWC Elzetta MINICQB 1

The new MINICQB Weapon Light features all of the same specs as the original Elzetta ALPHA single cell flashlight including 315 lumen output from a single CR123 battery and Elzetta’s Momentary, twist on tailcap with the others tailcap options available. The ALPHA is designed specifically as a CQB or Close Quarters Battle light producing a “wall of light” intended for room clearing and close encounters within 50 yards. The proven IWC mount arm is machined from the same piece of billet aluminum as the light body itself making a much stronger union than using the typical adapter style mount. 

IWC Elzetta MINICQB 1

Now this is where things get REALLY interesting. The MINICQB incorporates Impact Weapons Components new KML mount technology which basically means Keymod & M-LOK compatible. That’s right. No longer do you have to decide “Do I buy this for my KeyMod rail or should I go with the M-LOK version for my new M-LOK rail?”. This KML system is awesome. I’ve attached the MINICQB on both a Geissele SMR MK8 M-LOK rail and on my Rainier Arms FORCE Mod2 KeyMod rail (shown below) and it works amazingly well. To switch between KeyMod and M-LOK you just simply unthread the reversible nuts, turn them around and thread them back on. The MINICQB will also be available with a 1913 Picatinny Rail Mount as well. 

IWC Elzetta MINICQB 1

To give you some comparison information, the MINICQB Picatinny version weighs just 4.5oz and the KML (KeyMod / M-LOK) version weighs just 4.7oz. A SureFire M300 without a mount weighs 4.8oz and an Inforce WML without KeyMod or M-LOK adapter weighs 3.1oz. 

I’ve had my MINICQB for about 5 days now and am super impressed with it. The direct attachment makes it feel as if the Light is actually part of the weapon instead of an added on piece. The design of the mount keeps the light very close to the rail for a nice low profile design. Having an Elzetta flashlight with the IWC KML mounting technology is about as awesome as it gets.

The pricing for the new MINICQB is very reasonable as well with the 1913 rail mount version retailing at just $205 and the KML M-LOK / KeyMod mount version retailing for just $230. Once you purchase your MINICQB you will also be able to purchase the hardware for the other mount style. So if you buy the KML version you can purchase the 1913 cap and screws to give you a truly universal mounting system. 

The new MINICQB Flashlight should be available today at www.ImpactWeaponsComponents.com. Don’t forget that you can use the code “AR15NEWS” at checkout to save yourself 5% off your order.

Arisaka Releases 300 Series Scout Compatible Light Bodies

Posted on December 30th, 2014 by ar15news

The 300 Series Light Body is designed as a streamlined replacement for Surefire Scout Light M300 bodies. It is manufactured without the mounting interface for the stock Picatinny clamp. This greatly increases the clearance for front sights when used in combination with the KeyMod and M-Lok Arisaka Inline Scout Mounts on handguards with 45 degree mounting surfaces adjacent to the top Picatinny rail, such as the BCM KMR, KAC URX4, and Geissele SMR MK8.

Arisaka Scout Light Body 1

The 300 Series Light Body is compatible with all E1 series and Scout Light M300 series tailcaps and heads. It will also fit in any aftermarket Scout mount, as it retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.

Arisaka Scout Light Body 2

It is also possible to build a complete light from scratch by sourcing a Surefire or aftermarket light head, and a tailcap or tape-switch.

The 300 Series Light Body is manufactured out of 6061 aluminum, type III hardcoat anodized, and made entirely in the USA.

Posted on December 10th, 2014 by ar15news

American Defense Mfg let us know yesterday that they just added the new Aimpoint T-2 Optic and Mount combos to their website. This is great news for a few reasons. One, people have been itching to get their hands on the new T-2 red dot ever since it was introduced a while back. Two, whenever ADM offers “Optic/Mount” packages everybody WINS! The way it always works is you are basically gonna get an American Defense Mfg mount for FREE or close to it. For example, the cost of the T-1/T-2 mount is around $100 but with the combo, you’re saving almost $160. That means you’re not only getting a FREE QD mount but also saving on the optic as well. Now that’s a deal. If anyone wants to get me this combo for Christmas…I won’t be mad. :)

New Products from G-CODE Just In Time for Christmas

Posted on November 21st, 2014 by ar15news

Our friends at G-CODE just released a couple of awesome new products that are sure to make the gun owner in your life happy as can be. The first product G-CODE released was their new series of Scorpion Mag Carriers which are available in 5.56 and 7.62 sizes for rifle magazines as well as Single and Double Stack Pistol Mag Carriers.

G-CODE Scorpion Mag Carriers 1

The Rifle mag carriers can be mounted to a belt via multiple different accessories, mounted to a Battle Belt or even mounted to a Plate Carrier. The Pistol mag carriers can either be mounted to a belt or stacked onto the front of one of the Rifle mag carriers. The mag carriers are ambidextrous and tension adjustable.

As if the mag carriers wasn’t cool enough, just yesterday G-CODE introduced the new HSP INCOG Eclipse holster. The Eclipse is an evolution of the original INCOG holster and features a new patent pending modular mounting point called the Super Mojo Adapter which allows the user to adjust the angle of the holster. The Super Mojo Adapter also features a negative angle which forces the gun closer to your body making it easier to conceal. 

G-CODE INCOG Eclipse Holster 1

The INCOG Eclipse is a minimum bulk, multi-positional, concealment holster. Each of its distinctive features improve the concealed carry of a handgun from a variety of carry positions while aiding the acquisition of a full firing grip on the weapon prior to the draw. Combined, these features maximize function respective to the users: body type, deployment tactics, level of training and personal preferences.

G-CODE makes some really high quality products and I’m sure both of these new products will live up to that reputation. Not to mention I don’t know of anyone who would be opposed to finding either of them under the Christmas tree this year. If either of these products peak your interest, click on the links below to view them on G-CODE’s website.

Usually when you purchase a mount for your Aimpoint Micro mount you have to decide if you want an Absolute Co-Witness mount or a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness mount. Not many companies offer a mount that can be configured for both but that is exactly what Daniel Defense just released. The new mount looks very similar to their already very popular Aimpoint Micro Mount but now comes with an Absolute Co-Witness base and a bolt on spacer that converts the mount to a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness height mount. Now you don’t have to figure out which model you prefer and no need to buy multiple mounts. Check out the pics and details for the new mount below, then head on over to www.DanielDefense.com to purchase one for yourself. 

Daniel Defense Convertible Aimpoint Mount 1 copyDaniel Defense Convertible Aimpoint Mount 2 620

The newest generation of the Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount gives users the option of both an absolute or lower 1/3 co-witness with iron sights and Aimpoint’s popular Micro R-1, H-1, T-1, or T-2 optics. Its light weight, essentials-only design offers a snag-free, low-profile, reversible mounting option for shooters that do not require or desire a quick attach/detach mount. The mount features a recoil lug which interfaces with the bottom of the optic and prevents the energy from recoil and counter recoil from transferring to and damaging the factory mounting screws. This further increases durability and ensures a repeatable zero shot after shot. The Aimpoint® Micro Mount features our Patented Rock & Lock® attachment system and secures to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail with two slotted machine screws. These fasteners thread into stainless steel self-locking threaded inserts that resist vibration and loosening. Offering absolute or a lower 1/3 co-witness with your back-up iron sights, this mount is ideal for shooters who are looking for the lightest mount to accent their Aimpoint® Micro. In order to achieve a lower 1/3 co-witness, the user includes the spacer with the mount when installing the optic. For an absolute co-witness, simply install optic without the spacer. The Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount has been proven to be one of the most durable and light weight mounts available.

–  Recoil Lug Interface between mount and optic

MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION

NEW!! Scalarworks LDM Ultra Light Weight Aimpoint T-1 Mount

Posted on October 17th, 2014 by ar15news

Scalarworks has just released their new LDM with stands for Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint Micro (T-1 and H-1) optics. The LDM goes against conventional thought regarding optic mounts which says you can’t have Light Weight and Quick Detach at the same time. Weighing in at just 1.33 ounces and featuring a notched thumbwheel with ball detent that won’t back-out under heavy recoil you can now have the best of both worlds. Check out the pictures and press release for the Scalarworks LDM below. Additional information is also available at Scalarworks.com.
