NEW!! ALG Defense Sidewinder Muzzle Brake

Posted on January 10th, 2015 by ar15news

ALG Defense’s new Sidewinder muzzle brake is machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel and fits ½”-28 threaded 5.56mm barrels. The vents are angled upward at 3 and 9 o’clock deflecting gas to the sides, away from the ground, reducing dust and debris when firing from the prone position. The vents are larger on top than on the bottom which minimize the muzzle rise of the ALG Sidewinder. The unique design reduces muzzle rise and recoil, allowing the shooter to quickly get back on target for rapid follow up shots. The ALG Sidewinder includes a peel washer for proper timing and concentricity during installation. Available in both Bright Polish or Black Nitride finish.

NEW!! LANTAC BMD (Blast Mitigation Device)

Posted on December 12th, 2014 by ar15news

LANTAC has just joined the long list of companies who are offering a muzzle device shroud that redirects the blast associated with using a muzzle brake. I like that LANTAC took the design at least one step further and created openings on the top of the shroud that correspond to the top ports of the LANTAC Dragon brake which allows the brake to fight muzzle rise even while the shroud is installed. They’ve also designed a different QD attachment system as well. Probably the most notable feature is the fact that it works with the LANTAC Dragon which is widely considered one of the best brakes on the market. Also shown in these pictures is there new SPADA rail. These products will be available early 2015.

LANTAC BMD, Blast Mitigation Device. There have been many derivatives of the first blast shield designed by Simplistic Shooting Solutions and or Kineti Tech years ago. Including QD attachment systems and diffuser holes as seen in Ferfrans and the Spikes Tactical HVS designs. With Gemtech, Griffin and MMC also fielding good products. The BMD is our take on this type of device, with a few changes from our original concept that was tabled at the time we designed our Dragon brake.

LANTAC BMD

One of the most important features for us was vertical porting that would allow the Dragon brake to continue to shoot as efficiently as it does without compromise. The other was gas flow direction and turbulence. Internally the BMD features an angled shoulder that allows gas to flow smoothly into the diffuser sections of the outer cylinder and also across the many teeth at the opening. The diffuser holes are also strategically position at the sides and top of the BMD but NOT the bottom, this also assist in muzzle climb management, its the same principle as found in the A2 compensator.

The BMD is also retained by 2 spring loaded catches on either side, so can be ‘stripped’ forward from the brake very quickly if required.

LANTAC has been releasing a ton of new products lately and they seem to just keep getting better and better. Be sure to check out the LANTAC Facebook page as well as their website www.LANTAC-USA.com for a complete list of LANTAC products.

Now Available!! Radical Firearms 5.56mm SpitFire Muzzle Brake

Posted on November 8th, 2014 by ar15news

A few weeks ago I showed you guys some pictures of my new AR Pistol that Radical Firearms built and camo’d for me. One of the parts of that rifle that got the most interest was their new SpitFire Muzzle Brake. In fact it was one of the first things that caught my eye as well. Basically the SpitFire is a modular muzzle device that allows you to switch between two different ends. One option is more like what you would find on Krink style AK while the second option features spiraled tines that pretty much turbo charge your muzzle blast and creates a super sized fireball. Both work well to push all of the muzzle blast forward though which is the main benefit. At the time I received my AR Pistol these were not available for sale but just today Radical Firearms released the much anticipated 5.56mm version. They will also be releasing the 7.62mm version in a few weeks. Normal retail price on these is $135 but they are available at an intro price of just $99.95. Details and pics are below. Head on over to www.RadicalFirearms.com to snag one for yourself before this first run is all gone.

Posted on October 16th, 2014 by ar15news

Quite some time ago, BattleComp revealed some pictures of a new prototype called the BC51.0. The BC51.0 was a hybrid between a BattleComp BC1.0 and an AAC 51T suppressor mount. This will allow the end user more suppressor options while still retaining the awesome properties of having a BattleComp mounted to their rifle. These are now actual production units and can be purchased for a limited time at an introductory price. Check out the pics and details below.

The MSRP is $195.00 once this run is sold.

The BattleComp 51.0 is a one-piece unit manufactured from 17-4PH Stainless Steel. The 51.0 will integrate with those suppressors using an AAC 51T-style interface.

This suppressor variant is only available in 5.56 caliber at the moment.  The BC51.0 comes with a Black Oxide finish only.  100% made in the USA.

More models to follow.

NEW!! Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield Muzzle Device

Posted on October 13th, 2014 by ar15news

If you’ve ever stood next to someone shooting an AR you’ve definitely felt and heard the ear drum shattering concussion with every shot. The new QD Blast Shield from Griffin Armament helps reduce this concussive force by redirecting it forward away from the shooter or those next to the shooter. The QD Blast Shield is certainly not the first of its kind but has some unique features that make it one of the best designs I’ve seen. 

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

One of the main features I really like about the QD Blast Shield is that it will work with multiple muzzle devices that Griffin Armament offers but is also compatible with the readily available A2 flash hider giving you multiple different options for the muzzle device you use under the QD Blast Shield. However, I would recommend one of the Griffin Armament QD 5.56 mounts if you really want to have a sweet setup! 

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

The QD system itself is another thing I feel Griffin Armament improved on. Instead of a screw on or ratcheting system the QD Blast Shield locks on by pressing the locking gate to the side and engaging the spring clip. To remove the QD Blast Shield you have to manually disengage the spring clip and then pull the locking gate out to the side making it virtually impossible to disengage accidentally. This is the same QD system that they use on their flagship M4SD Silencers.

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

There are plenty of nice features of the QD Blast Shield but the last one I’m going to touch on is the visually appealing aspect of it. This thing just looks awesome. The black Melonite finish and triangular shape is much different than other similar products on the market but these looks are an upgrade in function as well which you can read more about below.

 Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 4

The QD Blast Shield was designed to offer significant concussion reduction for the end user and other team members operating in the immediate vicinity. Often team members in CQB environments experience concussion from muzzle blast that is not only deafeningly loud, but also can cause prolonged headaches that can last for days afterwards.

Especially effective on short barrels, the unique design of the QD Blast Shield directs concussive force forward while triangular gas flow pockets allow the muzzle device to retain it’s specific performance goals. Ultra strong 17-4PH stainless steel provides a robust material to withstand intense use and full auto fire without fear of failure. Fluted geometry in the triangular shield lightens the unit while providing internal front supports for the muzzle device.

Melonite QPQ surface treatment provides an extremely hard, durable, and attractive finish.

The QD mechanism is fast, positive, and free of wear prone geometry commonly found in ratcheting devices. The QD Blast Shield also comes with a shim set and overtravel stop to refit your A2 compensator for optimal use.

The Griffin QD Blast Shield is compatible with our line of QD 5.56mm mounts, Including the Flash Comp, Muzzle Brake, Compensating Flash Hider, and Tactical Compensator. It is also compatible with A2 Compensators that fall within the NATO spec blueprinted dimensions. Although many companies manufacture A2 style compensators not all of them are dimensioned properly. Not Compatible with BCM, BCE or PWS muzzle devices.

Griffin Armament has continued to pursue product development that will enhance hearing safety in tactical and shooting sport situations. The QD Blast Shield is a great product for those that would like to reduce the concussion of their muzzle devices.
