NEW!! BCM KMR-Alpha Rail

Posted on October 20th, 2015 by ar15news

Bravo Company USA has just announced their new BCM KMR-Alpha rail is now shipping. Although the appearance is unchanged, the new KMR-Alpha is made from an Aircraft Grade Aluminum alloy vs the Magnesium alloy the current KMR is made of. Take a minute to read about the new KMR-Alpha rail and check out the pictures below.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Shipping Now !

The definitive modular combat rail is now also available in an Aircraft Grade Aluminum alloy. With seven mounting surfaces, the KMR-Alpha is a modular handguard that uses the KeyMod system to attach accessories such as lights, lasers, vertical grips, handstops and more.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Utilizing the same patented (US 8904691) free float barrel nut lock up, the KMR-Alpha uses the identical mounting hardware as the original KMR. This new addition to the KMR family only weighs 6 ounces plus 2.2 ounces for barrel nut and hardware (Note: KMR-A10).

Each KMR-Alpha includes a BCM® KeyMod QD Sling Mount and is available in 15″, 13″ and 10″ as well as 9″, 8″ and 7″ sizes.

KeyMod is the industry standard for a repeat zero modular system. KeyMod mates the handguard and the accessory with a chamfered interface that self-aligns for consistent, repeatable mounting. This self-aligning interface is the same basis for the Picatinny 1913 rail system proven in combat by the US Military since 9/11.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 2

The KMR uses a patented lock up system where self-locking cross bolts apply force at the 12:00 position of the handguard equally distributing force around the surface area of the rail. This also insures continuous top center alignment of the rail and mitigates forwards/backwards movement of the handguard when the weapon system is fired.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Special Introductory SALE Pricing !

KMR-A15, $199.95

KMR-A13, $189.95

KMR-A10, $179.95

KMR-A9, $176.95

And ALL KMR-A Handguards include a FREE BCM KeyMod Sling Mount! (a $20 retail value!)

NEW!! 16.5″ Vella Industries Trident Rail System

Posted on October 5th, 2015 by ar15news

For most AR builds, the usual 12 – 15 inch long rail system/hand guard will do just fine but there’s always that one build that you wish you could have found a bit longer rail to put on it. Unfortunately barely anybody makes rails or hand guards that are longer than 15 inches. Well, here’s one to definitely add to the list for future long barrel builds. The new Vella Industries Trident Rail System is 16.5 inches long but weights just 8 ounces (11.5 ounces with barrel nut and screws). It also has some pretty sexy looking lines with the KeyMod sections on the sides and bottom and M-LOK along the top.

The front end of the rail really gives it a custom look with side cutouts to allow the use of muzzle brakes without damaging the rail on 16″ builds.

Gear Sector 13.5″ and 15″ Free Float Hand Guard Now Available

Posted on September 28th, 2015 by ar15news

I’ve been a big fan of Gear Sector for a long time. Not just because their are absolutely bomb proof and no-corners-cut designs but they are just all around great people as well. For many years now they have produced smaller accessories like Light Mounts, Offset Mounts, Vertical Grips, etc. Almost two years ago they decided it was time to go “big” and released a sneak peek of a their new rail design. Fast forward to right now and they have the design just perfect and have officially released the 13.5″ and 15″ versions of their GSR Free Float Hand Guard.

The GSR comes in two different models which are the GSR Tube and GSR Rail. Basically the only difference is that the “Rail” version comes with bolt on accessory rail sections that you can position anywhere along the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock sides utilizing their new Mod Slot mounting system as seen below.

Gear Sector GSR Rail

As I mentioned, these are actually available for purchase now. Currently just the 13.5″ and 15″ models in Black are available but they will also be introducing additional colors such as FDE, OD Green, Foliage and Brown along with a 7″ and 9″ version. You can purchase these great looking new rails directly at

Over the weekend, my friends Jody Lewis and Steve Coulston, made a trip out to Illinois for the 2nd annual Bullpup Shoot. Jody was nice enough to send me some pics and details for a sneak peek of the new “Transformer” rail coming out soon from Manticore Arms that takes the guess work out of “Do I want a KeyMod rail, M-LOK rail or something else?”. 

Instead of deciding on a specific rail and having to decide what type of attachment method you want, the new Manticore Arms Transformer rail lets you swap in different panels. The different panels can have KeyMod slots, M-LOK slots, a smooth texture, grippy texture, etc. and are held in place with screws.

You can also mix and match the panels. So lets say you have an M-LOK light mount but your vertical forward grip is KeyMod. Simply replace the corresponding panels and install the accessories that work best for you. If at the moment you don’t have any KeyMod or M-LOK accessories but want to get some down the road, install the textured panels and then add in the required panels once you purchase the accessories.

Aside from being able to swap out these panels, the Transformer rail looks great too. It has a patent pending barrel nut, anti rotation tabs and a cool looking 12 o’clock run that has a little bit of rail space at the front and rear of the rail. It is also pretty light weight at 7.4 ounces for a 13″ rail.

Manticore Arms Transformer Rail 1

From what I hear, the Transformer rail will be available within the next 60 days with an MSRP around $249. More details coming soon so keep an eye on the Manticore Facebook page.

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.
