Cross Machine Tool CRC 556 (Combat Recoil Compensator)

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Cross Machine Tool has recently started to build on their brand offerings with some new products. The CRC (Combat Recoil Compensator) muzzle device is one of those new products. The CRC features dual side ports and forward angled top ports to reduce muzzle rise. The tip of the muzzle device also is machine to mimic the machining on the front of the UPH15 lower receiver mag well. Muzzle brakes are just the beginning as new rails will soon be rolling out as well. The CRC 556 muzzle device is currently in-stock and available at www.RainierArms.com.

Two forward angle brake ports on the  CRC 556  provide greatly reduced muzzle rise & mitigate felt recoil while the front forks distort and reduce flash signature. The external machined flutes on the front flash forks not only reduce the overall weight of the device but also blend with the aesthetic appearance of our Trademark magwell grooves on CMT UHP15 series Lower receivers. Function of the CRC 556 muzzle device is equaled by the exceptional visible manufacturing quality & apprearence you expect from Cross Machine Tool products. MADE IN USA

The Fortis Muzzle Brake – for your 9MM

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by ar15news

While it seems like EVERYONE is building a 9mm AR right now, its taken AR component manufactures a little bit longer to jump on board as well. Thankfully Fortis Manufacturing has jumped in with a 9mm version of their extremely popular muzzle brake. What makes this such an awesome new product is not just that it looks pretty amazing but it also interfaces with the Fortis QD CONTROL blast shield (sold separately). This is sure to be a great performing muzzle device for your 9mm AR and is available in both 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI which are the two most common thread patterns for 9mm AR barrels. Check out the information below, then head on over to www.FortisMfg.com and pick one up for yourself.

Fortis Mfg 9mm Muzzle Brake and CONTROL

The performance of the Fortis 556 Muzzle Brake is unmatched and the rise is non-existent, now replicated for your 9MM AR needs (also compatible with the Control Shield).

While the trend of 9MM AR’s continue to rise, we wanted to give those enthusiasts a product that carried the Fortis theme of design and functionality. So we took the 556 Muzzle Brake and utilized its aesthetics while getting the same performance for the 9MM that we do in our 556.

Available only in Nitride, in 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI, now available for purchase on FortisMFG.com.

SLR Rifleworks Titanium Hybrid Linear Comp

Posted on July 20th, 2016 by ar15news

Looks like SLR Rifleworks will be introducing a new muzzle device soon. Over the past week or so they have leaked 3 photos showing a new product called the Titanium Hybrid Linear Comp. From the photos it appears to feature a solid Titanium body that, like other linear comps, is designed to force the concussion from each shot forward away from the shooter or anyone standing near that shooter. It also incorporates an end cap with ports. Not a ton of information is available just yet. For now all we can say is, it looks awesome and is something we will keep an eye out for. As soon as more info is available you can bet we’ll be sharing it here on AR15NEWS.

Serious Armorer’s Tools for Serious AR Builders

Posted on July 12th, 2016 by ar15news

As an avid AR owner/builder I have lots of experience piecing together rifles and the tools that are required to do that. I’ve used pretty much everything from the super cheap to pretty pricey when it comes to Armorer’s Tools. Most of your “inexpensive” Armorer’s Tools are, for the most part, made for the AR owner who will build a rifle once or twice a year and are prone to marring you rifle parts and tend to break during use. Some just flat out don’t work as advertised and are a “jack of all, master of none” type of design. I’m always looking out for the next must have armorer’s tools. Geissele Automatics did it with their Reaction Rod and now it looks like Fire 4 Effect has done it with their new F4E AWS (Armorer’s Wrench Set). 

Instead of one wrench that is supposed to do everything, the F4E AWS consists of 3 separate wrenches including a Barrel Nut Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench. This design made it so the portion of the wrench you are trying to use is positioned in the center with an extended handle on both ends of the wrench. On each of those handles are cutouts for use with a torque wrench and the suggested torque settings are actually etched on. The Castle Nut Wrench has an amazing design to it that doesn’t allow it to tear up your castle nut or buffer tube and the Barrel Nut Wrench features 9 points of contact that are all replaceable if one gets bent. Just seems like an extremely well thought out set of wrenches. Check out the pics, video and details below. 

NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT!

The Fire 4 Effect team is proud to announce the F4E Armorers Wrench Set! Developed by Master Gunsmith and former Army Marksmanship Unit NCOIC Matt Haidu the Armorers Wrench Set or AWS consists of a Barrel Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench.

Fire 4 Effect AWS Armorers Wrench Set

Manufactured from water jet cut mild steel that has been CNC milled, laser engraved with a custom cerakote finish the AWS is designed to provide a lifetime of use for the AR15 armorer. Each wrench has a life time warranty.

Key Features:
———
The Barrel Nut Wrench provides 9 points of contact on the barrel nut and features hardened steel roll pins which can be easily replaced by the individual armorer.
———
The Castle Nut Wrench uses recessed castle nut lugs for improved lock up during assembly and disassembly. The Castle Nut Wrench also doubles as a Receiver Extension / buffer tube wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench features a alignment groove to assist armorers while indexing muzzle devices.
———
Torque wrench attachment points have the corrected torque wrench calculation engraved on the Muzzle Device Wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench also features shoulder inlets to accommodate crush washer expansion.
———
All wrenches incorporate 2 handles for balanced manual torque application during assembly or reassembly.

PROUDLY MADE IN TEXAS!

Individual Wrench Price:
– Barrel Nut Wrench: $129.99
– Castle Nut Wrench: $119.99
– Muzzle Device Wrench: $79.99
– Complete AWS Price: $300.00

If you are a serious AR build, not just a once a year builder, you will definitely need to get your hands on a set of these awesome wrenches. Fire-4-Effect offers a 10% MIL/LE discount with appropriate credentials. You can order your AWS at www.fire-4-effect.com

Phase 5 Weapon Systems recently completed their lineup of FATman and littleBOY Hex Brakes with the addition of the 9mm/7.62×39/6.8 model for both FATman (dual chamber) and littleBOY (single chamber) brakes with 1/2×36 threads. This now brings the total to 6 different muzzle brakes in the Hex Brake series including the 5.56/.223 with 1/2×28 threads & 7.62×51/.308/300BLK with 5/8×24 threads for FATman and littleBOY models as well. 

Phase 5 littleBOY and FATman Hex Brakes

Phase 5 littleBOY and FATman Hex Brakes 1**Not my photo but shows the size of these beasts.**

I have all except for the 9mm model right now and they are actually a very cool muzzle brake. They are on the larger side but at the same time they have a collar that covers a bit of the end of the barrel as you thread them on. They have a pretty stout look too. These are definitely work taking a look at if you’re in the market for a new muzzle device.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems Hex Brakes

Posted on May 9th, 2016 by ar15news

Phase 5 Weapon Systems has recently introduced a couple of really cool looking new Hex shaped muzzle brakes. The first was the FATman Hex Brake which utilizes a two chamber design to reduce felt recoil and 12 o’clock ports to compensate for muzzle rise. The newest version is the littleBOY Hex Brake and, as I’m sure you’ve guess already, is a little bit more compact (shorter) than the FATman. Currently both Brakes are available for 556/.223 and 7.62×51/.308/300blk but my contacts at P5WS have told me they will be releasing 9mm, 7.62×39 and 6.8mm versions later this month. Check out these sweet looking muzzle brakes and read the info below. Will make sure we let you know when the additional caliber options are available in a few weeks.

Phase 5 FATman Hex Brake 2

FATman Hex Brake

The FATman Hex Brake was created to solve issues faced by many competition shooters and precision rifle builders. The 2 large (FAT) ventilated baffle sections and chambers create the compensation needed to reduce the overall recoil felt by the shooter.

Phase 5 FATman Hex Brake 2

The FATman Hex Brake includes two top ports machined at a 20 Deg. forward directed angle. These top ports help direct the energy of the spent gas in a manner that maintains a flat consecutive result shot after shot. The design of the FATman Hex Brake allows the first chamber wall to sit as close to the barrel crown plane as possible. This design element was included to maintain the full accuracy of the barrel.

Introducing the littleBOY Hex Brake; a younger, compact version of the original FATman Hex Brake, which was also created to solve issues faced by many competition shooters and precision rifle builders.

Phase 5 littleBOY Hex Brake 2

Including 1 large (FAT) ventilated baffle section and chamber to create the compensation needed to reduce the overall recoil felt by the shooter. Just like its big brother, the design of the littleBOY Hex Brake allows the chamber wall to sit as close to the barrel crown plane as possible. This design element was included to maintain the full accuracy of the barrel.

The iconic Phase 5 Hex design gives the FATman and littleBOY Hex Brakes the perfect styling that custom gun builders are looking for.

Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle Brake

Posted on April 11th, 2016 by ar15news

You may have notices that 9mm ARs are all the rage right now. There are lots of companies making accessories and parts for 9mm ARs but one thing that hasn’t caught up is the availability of 9mm muzzle brakes and compensators. I just happened to run across this one the other day. It is the new MD9 9mm muzzle brake from Cloudbreak.

Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle brake 1Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle brake 1

This muzzle brake reminds me more of a compensator with all of the porting on it but from what I’ve read there is a noticeable reduction in recoil as well. It has a Black Ion Nitride finish, machined from 416 Stainless Steel and also has the 1/2×28 thread pitch which is the same as some of the most popular 9mm barrels such as the ones by Quarter Circle 10. 

Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle brake 1

The new Cloudbreak MD9 9mm muzzle brake is available now through Rainier Arms for just $59.95 which seems like a pretty reasonable price point. 

**Edit: I just found out if you need one that has the 1/2×36 thread pitch they are available through Pantel Tactical.**

FALKOR Defense Blast Cap Muzzle Device Now Available

Posted on March 25th, 2016 by ar15news

The new FALKOR Defense Blast Cap muzzle devices are now available for purchase. The Blast Cap is designed to push the blast forward away from the shooter while reducing muzzle rise and recoil. They are available in both .223/5.56 and in a version specifically tuned for 300 Blackout. Check out the pics and details below. 

www.FALKORDefense.com

FALKOR Defense Blast Cap 1a

 

FALKOR Defense Blast Cap 2

The Falkor Defense “Blast Cap” muzzle brake was designed specifically for short barreled rifles to both direct the concussion away from the shooter whilst eliminating muzzle travel including rise and recoil.  Constructed from heat treated steel alloy and aircraft grade aluminum, the device also features interchangeable caps that will be released at a later date.

www.FALKORDefense.com

If you own a LANTAC Dragon 5.56 muzzle brake, chances are you are anxiously waiting the release of their new BMD or Blast Mitigation Device. The BMD is a quick detach shroud that lets you keep the benefits of the muzzle brake (reduction in recoil and muzzle rise) while forcing the concussion associated with using a muzzle brake forward of the shooter. LANTAC has been perfecting their design for some time and have finally settled on a two piece design which includes a collar that attaches to the muzzle brake and then the BMD attaches to the collar. This collar design allowed them to create the rock solid attachment system they felt was needed for the BMD while still making it compatible with the thousands of Dragon muzzle brakes that are already on end user rifles. Best news of the day…the new BMDs are now in production and a limited number have been made available for preorder. If you would like more information or would like to get in on the preorder, head on over to www.LANTAC-USA.com.
