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

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.

Alamo Four Star Announces the Cowl Induction Break (CIB)

Posted on June 11th, 2015 by ar15news

June 9th, 2015 – Lubbock Texas – Lubbock Texas – Alamo Four Star is pleased to announce the release of the Cowl Induction Brake (CIB). The CIB CNC cross milled port design reduces recoil by over 50% while minimizing the sound directed back at the shooter.

Alamo Four Star CIB brake 1

The CIB was developed as better way to mitigate the recoil of large caliber rifles. Founder Mark Deros realized a need to revisit the industry standard muzzle brake design when he was shooting his .338 Lapua and experiencing substantial recoil with a standard factory brake. This led Mark to find the most effective way to redirect the escaping gas pressure and put that energy to work in order to more effectively reduce recoil and manage muzzle rise. This reduction was made possible by redesigning the internal and external geometry of the traditional brake to increase the efficiency of the flow of gasses.

Alamo Four Star CIB brake 2

“I realized after shooting my .338 Lapua for a while I realized that there had to be a better solution than receiving an ‘ass whipping’ with the factory muzzle brake.” said Mark Deros CEO of Alamo Four Star. “With 18,000 lbs of pressure being released from that muzzle, that’s a lot of energy available to be exploited. The CIB uses that energy to the shooters advantage creating a more enjoyable shooting experience and faster follow up shots.”

The CIB is available in 223/5.56, 6mm, 6.5mm, .30cal, and .338 Lapua in both black and stainless steel. MSRP on the CIB is $169

Over the weekend my friends from LANTAC sent me some pics from a video they’re currently working on which features the much anticipated LANTAC BMD, aka the Blast Mitigation Device. The BMD slides over and locks onto the LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake to redirect the blast. If you’ve seen any of the previous LANTAC videos you know that they feature amazing high speed footage and these action shots of the BMD are absolutely amazing. You can really see how well it redirects the blast forward of the shooter while still getting some of the benefits of the Dragon brake underneath through the use of vents and holes above the Dragon’s vertical ports. 

I’m a huge fan of the LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake and well…basically anything LANTAC has made so far. Really looking forward to giving the BMD once it comes out. Until then, we’ll just have to drool over these awesome pics below. Look for the full HD video to come soon.

First is a shot of the blast from a LANTAC Dragon WITHOUT the BMD in place.

These next few shots show the BMD in action on a couple of different ARs. You can easily see that it makes quite a difference in reducing the side blast.
