If you’ve followed AR15NEWS for any decent length of time you’ve probably noticed we build lots of ARs. Some times, as an AR builder, it’s easy to get in a rut and kind of build the same thing over and over again which gets boring. All it takes is a bit of imagination and planning and your next build can be the best one you’ve ever put together. This is the very case with my most recent build. 

Believe it or not I had SBR’d this Rainier Arms forged lower well over a year ago but had no idea what I wanted to do with it. Then it came to me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. From there it was just a matter of time before I had the parts in hand and ready to build.

Lets start out with a few closer shots. From this angle you can see the Rainier Arms ambi safety, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle and Scalarworks OPS (On Point Sights) fixed rear sight.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 1 - Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Juggernaut Tactical Ambi Charging Handle - Rainier Arms Ambi Safety

As I mentioned above, this build got started as a Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC lower that I bought and Form 1’d just before the ATF41P effective date. I added a Rainier Arms forged upper and ambi safety, CMC Triggers Flat 3.5lb Trigger and LPK, Superlative Arms Piston Kit, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle, Geissele MK4 rail and Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights and Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint T1 and a SureFeed Magazines 20 Round mag.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 2 - CMC Triggers Flat Trigger Geissele SMR MK4 rail Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Aimpoint Micro T1 Rainier Arms A-DAC

Of course as a Rainier Arms SBR build I chose to use their 10.5″ .223 Wylde barrel. Covered it with a Geissele MK4 rail, Arisaka Defense 300/IR Series Scout Light and Inline Scout Mount, SureFire SR07 switch, Scalarworks OPS Fixed Front Sight, Magpul vertical grip and Griffin Armament Taper Mount Supresspr Mount. The Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under there somewhere. 😜

Rainier Arms SBR Build - Geissele SMR MK4 - Arisaka Inline Scout Light Mount 300 Series Scalarworks OPS Front Fixed Sight magpul vertical grip Surefire SR07

Here’s another angle of the business end on the new Rainier Arms SBR build. From this angle you can now see how accessible the Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under the rail. This isn’t like many piston kits were you have one or two settings. Its more like a Piston Kit that has a built in fully adjustable gas block so you can really tune it in.

Rainier Arms SBR Build - Superlative Arms - Rainier Arms - Geissele - Scalarworks - Magpul = Arisaka Rainier Arms

This next shot gives you a better idea of how tidy things are on this build. It’s got everything I need and nothing I don’t. The Scalarworks OPS fixed sights and mount for the Aimpoint T1 are absolutely amazing. 

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms = cmc triggers = scalarworks = aimpoint t1 - juggernaut tactical - magpul - geissele

And here it is. Hope you guys enjoyed a pretty detailed look at my new Rainier Arms SBR build. In the end, this SBR turned out even better than I had pictured it but the initial imagination and passion to create another gun is what got it all started. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to just slap together the first complete rifle you can. Take your time with your next build, map it out, think about what would make you smile every time you see it and then build that. 

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms - geissele - cmc triggers - magpul - scalarworks - griffin armament - surefire = superlative arms piston kit - aimpoint juggernaut tactical

Here’s the full run down of parts for this build. If you want to copy it, be my guest. Would make for a great AR Pistol build too.  

Already had a chance to get the gas dialed in on the piston kit and man this thing is smooth. Will be getting some range time this week with this gun getting it sighted in. Will let you guys know how it runs soon.

If you’re looking for a special deal on the new Rebel Arms RBR-15 Mod3 rifles, look no further than Rainier Arms. Why Rainier Arms? Because they just became the distributor for the new line of MOD 3 rifles and are celebrating with exclusive below MAP (minimum advertised price) pricing.

FightLite® Industries, a division of ARES Defense Systems® Inc. located in Melbourne, Florida announces a development program for next generation, lightweight polymer ammunition to work in conjunction with its patented Dual-Feed Squad Automatic MCR® (Mission Configurable Rifle).

In a radical departure from the directions of both case telescoped ammunition and conventional polymer ammunition, FightLite® is pursuing an innovative development strategy for a 5th generation hybrid cartridge that is projected to lighten ammunition weight by up to 30% and deliver reduced ammunition cost, while also supporting legacy infantry weapons and machine guns.

FightLite Hybrid Polymer Ammo

FightLite NextGen MCR Rifle

There are millions of 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO weapons in both the US military and around the globe where users stand to benefit from a significant reduction in ammunition weight without sacrificing performance or reliability. FightLite® Industries and its parent organization ARES Defense have been very successful with their outside-the-box approach to problem solving in the small arms business during the past 20 years.

The company’s flagship weapon is its 8.5 lb. select-fire Squad Automatic MCR® that shares the excellent ergonomics of the M4A1 and feeds reliably from both M27-linked ammunition belts and standard M16 magazines at operator discretion. Featuring reliable gas-piston operation and a tool-less quick-change barrel system; the patented MCR® is the lightest and most portable belt fed machine gun in the world. Suppressor and grenade launcher capable, its select-fire operation allows soldiers and contractors to quickly and accurately engage both point and area targets. And when coupled with FightLite’s finalized 5th Gen lightweight cartridge, the MCR® and FightLite® ammo combination will represent the lightest 5.56mm automatic rifle with full combat load available anywhere.

FightLite NextGen MCR Rifle 1

The select-fire FightLite® MCR® is derived from the ARES-16 AMG-2 (Assault Machine Gun) that was selected for testing by the US Army’s Soldier Enhancement Program (SEP) and includes product enhancements that were made to the AMG-2 following experience with M855A1 EPR ammunition and earlier military testing done during the Army’s AEWE Spiral H experiment at Fort Benning.

Such enhancements include further weapon weight reduction and simplification, a square shaped feed roller housing, a heat treated steel feed plate that reduces feed ramp wear from M855A1 steel tipped projectiles, refinements in the breech bolt lug profile, a reinforced charging handle assembly, the company’s highly effective RipBrake muzzle compensator, and a proprietary method of mitigating cookoff risk while maintaining a select-fire, closed bolt system of operation that is more accurate and user-friendly than standard open-bolt light machine guns.

Some additional key elements of the MCR® are that it shares a 52% part commonality with existing NSN components already in the government system and the core technology can retrofit to any MIL-Spec AR15, M16 or M4 type lower receiver; meaning that it is rearward compatible to the very first Colt Mod. 01 (M16) manufactured in 1960. These accomplishments reduce a military’s logistical footprint and costs including spare components and operator and armorer training. Additionally, the dual-feed MCR® permits squad automatic rifle users to operate during the assault with 100 and 200 round magazines of M27-linked ammunition, but also retains the ability to reliably feed from 4179 STANAG (M16/M4) magazines from other squad members should linked ammunition run low during combat.

“The Army and some of our commercial customers have been interested in lightweight ammunition for quite some time, so our R&D team is pretty excited about the progress we’re making to finally solve the elusive lightweight ammunition equation for conventional rifles and machine guns,” says Geoffrey Herring, CEO of ARES Defense Systems®. “We’re aware that various iterations of polymer cased ammunition have been introduced to the commercial market during the past several years, but we also know some of the setbacks they’ve experienced along the way such as ballistic underperformance, case melt, moisture absorption, case separation or deformation, and catastrophic failures when the heat or pressure is up. Most of the polymer ammunition manufacturers are employing first through third generation technology which can be predisposed to fail when subjected to rough handling, temperature extremes, environmental conditions, and the pressures necessary for full ballistic performance of modern rifle ammunition.”

Brass cased ammunition has been relied on for over 150 years and has presented many challenges for the arms industry to find an alternative material that accomplishes everything that a standard brass case does. In addition to providing a convenient capsule to house the bullet and components, keep the powder dry and reliably feed into the chamber, it is also a critical gas container that keeps the shooter safe from the 50,000-70,000 psi chamber pressure when the round is fired. When the malleable brass case expands against the chamber wall during obturation, it performs as a mechanical brake reducing bolt loading and embeds many impurities from the chamber such as grit, carbon or unburned propellant into the case body which is then extracted from the chamber in a semi self-cleaning arrangement. Since brass is an excellent thermal conductor, it also absorbs and removes with each shot a small amount of heat generated by the friction of the projectile traveling down the bore. It can be stored for extended periods of time and can tolerate temperature extremes such as freezing cold, rough handling, hazardous environmental conditions and water submersion. But some of the biggest strikes against it are weight and cost, and depending on the individual manufacturer the 12 to 20 step manufacturing process necessary to fabricate a single cartridge.

FightLite® isn’t sharing any proprietary details at this stage about the (5th Generation) construction methods being privately developed in house with IRAD until its patents for the hybrid technology are solidified. But the FightLite® R&D team is systematically addressing and overcoming the hurdles that have plagued early players in the lightweight ammunition space and is confident in its decision to pursue development of a lightweight cartridge that will also support legacy weapons in the US arsenal and NATO countries, and other users around the world.

“Our company’s approach to product development has always been to invest in inclusive technologies that benefit a greater consumer base as exemplified by our MCR® being rearward compatible from today’s production M4A1 to the very first M16’s that the Army ever purchased. To date, our company has produced and delivered thousands of dual-feed MCR® type upper receiver assemblies and rifles throughout the US and overseas, so we’re very comfortable with our product, its capabilities and the ability to produce it,” says Herring. “The primary objective for developing polymer ammunition is to additionally lighten the soldier’s ammunition load by at least 20% and we think that our hybrid case will be able to achieve that while maintaining safety and ballistic performance and also supporting legacy systems. We’ve already accomplished significant weight savings for the soldier with our squad automatic MCR® which currently weighs 50% less than the current M249 and is 3-times more accurate as verified by US military testers during live fire exercises. In fact, our gun was so effective at improving the squad’s speed and mobility during our participation in the Army’s AEWE Spiral H experiment that there is soldier support on record for adding two additional weapons to the current 9-man squad for a total of two of our guns per fire team.”

No firm date is being stated at this time for delivery of FightLite® 5.56mm hybrid ammunition to market. In the interim, FightLite® Industries and its parent organization ARES Defense Systems® will continue supplying its customers with its commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) Squad Automatic MCR® and AMG-2 weapons which can currently use almost any of the billions of rounds of 5.56 NATO ammunition stockpiled throughout the world. Once the R&D cycle on FightLite® 5.56mm hybrid ammunition is completed, the company will likely either seek mass production of the ammunition through established high-volume ammunition producers or consider licensing its next generation squad automatic rifle (NGSAR) and ammunition technology to one of the USA’s larger prime defense contractors.

The Triggrcon show is just 1 week away and many companies release brand new products there. This year Battle Arms Development is looking to do just that and released a sneak peek of a few of their new products that will be on display at Triggrcon. 

First up was their new one piece magazine catch, the first of the many BAD Enhanced LPK (Lower Parts Kit) components. These will be part of an affordable, enhanced LPK. (Note: prototype shown)

They then showed off the evolution of one of their most popular items that put BAD on the map. In addition to their line of ambi safety selectors, they will soon be offering a single side, one piece Safety Selector featuring a lever similar to the standard lever found on their ambi selectors. These also will be part of an affordable, enhanced LPK. (Note: prototype shown, not final)

Lastly…at least for the moment…was the sneak peek at their new BAD .308 (AR-10) rifle. The BAD556-LW billet set is one of the sexiest receiver sets out there and it looks like they’ve taken many of those design cues and interpreted them into a beautiful AR-10. If you look close you’ll see it also feature a .308 version of their new handguard.

More and more it is becoming very apparent that Cross Machine Tool is more than just an AR receiver manufacturer. CMT was not satisfied with just making some amazing receiver sets so they basically starting making everything else. First it was muzzle devices, which they offer multiple models now. Then they came out with some extremely nice AR-15 and AR-10 handguards and most recently they announced they are introducing their new JAG gas blocks. Well, if you add all of those parts up you’re basically only a few parts away from a complete rifle so it only made sense for Cross Machine Tool to start offering complete rifles. 

Currently they are offering a number of different models including a 10.5″ 5.56 SBR, a 16″ 5.56 rifle and a 20″ 6.5 Creedmoor AR-10 rifle as shown below.

GRANTS PASS, OREGON, DECEMBER 12, 2016 — After meeting Alex West (Founder / Director of 1MWave) for some carne asada tacos outside of Coronado California earlier this year, Lorina Noveske wanted to help raise money for this amazing non-profit group after learning about their efforts in aiding disabled vets.

Here’s the scoop on One More Wave:  One More Wave is an non-profit charity started by US Navy veterans with the focus of enhancing the recovery of wounded or disabled vets via ocean therapy. They work with vets who have a wide range of disabilities, and customize surfboards to suit the specific injury. These surfboards are customized with graphics, and when needed, customized for performance adapting to specific physical disabilities.

Noveske will be releasing a special OMW rifle featuring our new NHR M-Lok hand guard, Gen III receiver set (including an engraved 1MWave Logo), Super Badass Charging Handle and more to raise funds for 1MWave. The rifle will sell for $2,350 with a sizable donation from each rifle going directly to helping vets.

Noveske Rifleworks OMW One More Wave Rifle 1

Speaking specifically about the partnership, Lorina Noveske said “One More Wave is an organization that resonates deeply with something we at NOVESKE believe in: honoring the hard-fought American Lifestyle, and supporting those who put themselves on the line to protect it. Ultimately, we want these guys and girls home, and UUULTIMATELYYY, we want to see them live the life they f***ing fought for!!!! One More Wave gets them surfing, and helps them heal!!!”

Noveske Rifleworks OMW One More Wave Rifle 1

Kyle Buckett, Vice President of One More Wave, added “Since 1MWave is 100% volunteer non-profit, the proceeds from this rifle will go directly to supporting wounded and disabled veterans. 1MWave will be able to continue providing the veterans they serve with custom surfing equipment and assistance. This equipment enables the veterans to achieve Ocean therapy, which is part of the healing process for issues our veterans may be dealing with like PTSD, TBI, depression, anger, anxiety, sleep apnea and many others.”

Noveske is proud to partner with One More Wave to help raise money for the creation of these fully customized surfboards. A large portion of the profit of the One More Wave rifle will be donated to aid in offsetting the cost of building the boards, and providing each vet with a special, life changing experience.

Our friends at FightLite Industries have been working overtime behind the scenes on some really cool new projects. They’ve thrown a couple of teasers out showing a new Pistol Caliber Carbine. Pistol Caliber AR’s are one of the most active parts of the AR market right now. More and more companies are joining that segment and producing their own product but most are just “me too” products. FightLite is a pretty innovative company so its no surprise they weren’t going to just produce a basic product. 

fightlite-industries-pistol-caliber-carbine-1

Here’s what we know! The three things that stand out the most to me about this setup are …
-1. It’s Caliber convertible at user level….22LR, 9mm, .40S&W, 10mm, .45ACP.
-2. It can use Glock, Beretta, CZ, S&W, Springfield and Sig mags.
-3. It appears it is a side charging upper with the handle positioned right at the front of the upper receiver.

The modularity of Caliber and Magazine compatibility make the possibilities pretty much endless and give the end user the ability to make one build and customize it to fit their current needs. Here are a couple of full auto videos for you to check out. Although it is shown in raw aluminum it will have a anodized finish.

We’ll continue to keep an eye out for additional information regarding this new product and will reach out to FightLite for some exclusive content to share. If you would like to be one of the first to know about FightLite Industry news I would suggest giving them a follow on the FightLite.Industries Instagram Account.
