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.

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.

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

Seekins Precision Rails and Accessories for Ruger Precision Rifle

Posted on September 18th, 2015 by ar15news

Although this is not 100% AR-15 related, I know there are enough of you out there taking a close look at the new Ruger Precision Rifle that it made sense to share it. Seekins Precision announced a few days ago that they will be making accessories for this new rifle. The Ruger Precision Rifle will likely be one of my personal next purchases. Although it is a bolt action rifle, Ruger recognized the abundance of accessories on the market for the AR-15 and made it so their new rifle can accept many AR-15 accessories such as Safety Selectors, Grips, Muzzle Devices, Magazines and Stocks. Seekins Precision will be offering the ATC muzzle break and modified Safety Selector and SP3 rail specifically for the Ruger Precision Rifle. Look for these accessories to be available for purchase soon.

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.

RA XTC 2.0 2

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

Sneak Peek! Fortis Manufacturing Quick Detach Blast Diverter

Posted on August 4th, 2015 by ar15news

My buddy “Chummerz” who works for Rainier Arms gets his hands on a ton of the newest stuff on the market. Recently he shared a few pictures of a new Quick Detach Blast Diverter that will be coming soon from Fortis Manufacturing. Blast Diverters or Blast Shields have really been taking off in popularity over the last few years as more and more people realize the potential benefits they offer, especially when it is a QD version that can be installed over a muzzle brake for indoor use and quickly removed for outdoor use letting you utilize the full benefits of the muzzle brake. 

There isn’t a ton of information available yet for the new Quick Detach Blast Diverter from Fortis Manufacturing (shown below) but it appears to be mounted to the also coming soon Rainier Arms XTC 2.o muzzle device. While this would make for a great combo, I’m hoping it means it will be compatible with many different muzzle devices which I feel would make it even more of a huge success than it is already guaranteed to be.

As with most sneak peeks, this QD Blast Diverter appears to be shown in the white, meaning it has not had its protective coating applied. Most likely you will see a Melonite, Anodized or Phosphate coating on the finished product. Chummerz said he will be hitting the range with the new Fortis Manufacturing QD Blast Diverter this week and will get some video, etc. Be sure to keep tabs on his Facebook and Instagram accounts at the links below.
