NEW!! Shadow Valley Weapons SVCOMP Tuned for 300BLK

Posted on January 8th, 2016 by ar15news

There are tons of options out there when looking for a muzzle device for your 300BLK upper. You just pick any 7.62 muzzle device with a 5/8×24 thread pitch that looks good right? It would be nice if there were more options for muzzle devices that are specifically tuned for the 300BLK round itself which is exactly what Shadow Valley Weapons decided to do with their SVCOMP.

The SVCOMP is a ported compensator that helps reduce muzzle rise that also has an S7 Tool Steel Glass Breaker Tip and a Wire Cutter Channel built in. Shadow Valley Weapons started with a 5.56 version which is what most companies would do but instead of just moving right into a 7.62 generic model and saying it will work with 300BLK, 7.62×39, 7.62×51, etc. they tuned their next model specifically for the 300BLK round.

Now Availablel!! Fortis Mfg “CONTROL” Blast Diffuser and Brake

Posted on December 16th, 2015 by ar15news

A while back we wrote a post to tell you guys about the new Fortis Mfg Muzzle Brake and CONTROL blast diffuser were coming soon. Just this week they finally released the first retail units for both products and they look pretty freaking sweet. 

Fortis Mfg Control Blast Diffuser 4

The new Fortis Mfg Muzzle Brake plays many roles for your AR. Not only does it look like a work of art but it also uses the two rearward angled side ports to reduce felt recoil, the two top facing ports help control muzzle rise and it also acts as the mounting interface between your rifle and the new Fortis Mfg CONTROL blast diffuser.

The Fortis Mfg CONTROL blast diffuser is a quick detach muzzle shroud designed to force the blast and noise from the muzzle brake forward away from the shooter and those next to them. The Quick Detach system is very simple and easy to use. The lines of ports at 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock help to reduce muzzle rise even while the CONTROL is attached.

Here are a couple of things I really like about what Fortis Mfg has done with the new CONTROL blast diffuser and Muzzle Brakes. 1. The Muzzle Brake and CONTROL are sold separately making it possible for you to buy any number of the new muzzle brakes and just one CONTROL to swap around all of them as needed which saves you money. 2. The Fortis CONTROL QD mounting system is being shared freely with other muzzle device manufactures in the industry so that they can create a multitude of muzzle devices that can interface with the new CONTROL blast diffuser. Rainier Arms was the first to adopt the new mounting tech for their new muzzle brake and others will be soon as well.

If you’ve been waiting, wait no more. The new Fortis Mfg muzzle brake and CONTROL blast diffuser are now available at an introductory price at www.RainierArms.com.

New!! STRYKE-2 Compensator from 556 Tactical

Posted on December 2nd, 2015 by ar15news

556 Tactical has just introduced their new STRYKE-2 Compensator and it looks pretty sweet. The STRYKE-2 is actually a combination of a muzzle brake and a compensator with the 3 side ports to reduce felt recoil and a 3 vertical ports to help reduce muzzle rise. And don’t worry, the STRYKE-2 is available for both 5.56 an 7.62 rifles. I’ve always been a fan of 5.56 Tactical and the fact that they offer great quality components at a great price. Check these out at www.556Tactical.com.

Gas Pedal® Racing Team wins Triple Crown at US Nationals 2015

Posted on October 26th, 2015 by ar15news

If you are not already familiar with GoGun USA, this is a company to take note of for your next build. While GoGun USA is world renown for their pistol product, I personally have used their muzzle brakes and AR Gas Pedal a few times over the past 4 years and have been thoroughly impressed. The muzzle brakes shoot extremely flat with soft recoil and look pretty awesome as well. Read the press release below outlining their recent Triple Crown win at the US Nationals.

www.GoGunUSA.com

Frostproof Florida, October 2015, Gas Pedal Racing Team Members won an unprecedented triple win at the USPSA Open National Championship. The GoGun® USA Gas Pedal® grip was on the winning guns in Men’s, Women’s, and Junior National Titles in very hard fought competition of most of  the fastest shooters in the world.

Chris Tilley won overall and Men’s Category.  Kaci Cochran won Women’s, Kincaid Ross won Junior. All are Gas Pedal® Racing team members. Kaci dominated for her second National Title in a Row. Chris and Kincaid were very close second place winners in 2014.

The Gas Pedal® brand grip pioneered the concept of the opposable grip in pistol shooting. The opposable grip, which is fundamentally different than the classic neutral grip, has been increasingly the method of choice for some of world’s fastest shooters.

Almost a quadruple crown as the Senior Category was won by Keary Pearson who also used an opposable grip thumb assist made by another manufacturer.

Chris, Kaci, Kincaid and Keary are firm believers in the Opposable Grip method and give it credit for their improved consistency and acquisition speed.

GoGun® USA has claimed that use of the Gas Pedal® opposable grip is simply the fastest way to shoot, period. As Benny Hill, the Texas gunsmith, not the comedian says, “It aint bragging, if you can do it…. Winning don’t lie”.

GoGun® USA is also noted for its SuperComp® Rifle Muzzle brakes and also the Gas Pedal® Thumb Assist for rifle or Shotgun.

GoGun®, Gas Pedal®, and SuperComp® are registered trademarks owned by Grip Holdings, LLC. SuperComp® muzzle brakes for Rifle and Gas Pedal® thumb assist for pistol are patented. Gas Pedal® for Rifle is patent pending.

I am seriously looking forward to running the new Fortis Manufacturing Control Blast Mitigation Device or BMD on some of my rifles. The Control BMD is a shroud that fits over the muzzle brake to direct the blast forward which helps if you have to shoot indoors or next to people at the range. It has a really nice QD attachment system. Easy on, easy off. When you don’t need it, remove it.

At the same time, Fortis will also be introducing their new muzzle brake which looks awesome. It has a dual chamber design to help reduce recoil with an additional two ports on the top to reduce muzzle rise.

You’re probably thinking “Of course they’re releasing a muzzle device, because you have to mount the Control BMD to their muzzle brake” but that would be incorrect. Fortis has begun sharing the mounting technology with other muzzle brake manufactures in the AR industry. First to use the Fortis mount technology was Rainier Arms with their new XTC2.0 muzzle brake. This could open up the door to an unlimited number of Muzzle Device / Fortis Control BMD combinations.

According to Fortis the Control BMD will be available in about 30 days. Sounds like an early Christmas present to me! Check out the text and video below for more information. 

www.FortisMfg.com

You breach, shoot a few rounds and then can’t hear feedback from your team because you’re temporarily deaf from the concussion and blast noise from your muzzle device. The Fortis Control Blast Mitigation Device (BMD) was designed to push the noise forward for combative situations or even for simple range use, while the top ports keep the muzzle device flat on target. The patent pending quick detach system will be made available for other manufacturer’s to use in conjunction with their muzzle devices. So whether you’re knocking down doors or shooting at the range, let’s help save your hearing. So click on the Control BMD and go!

ETA within 30 days
