Geissele’s Sneak Peek Christmas Present

Posted on December 29th, 2015 by ar15news

In case you missed it, just before Christmas Geissele Automatics gave AR owners all over the country a Christmas present of sorts by releasing a sneak peek at a couple of new products that will be coming soon. As you may already know, Geissele has been working on a new Scope Mount for a DOD (Department of Defense) customer since early 2015 and will be available for consumer purchase in 2016.

As if Geissele Scope Mounts weren’t good enough, just prior to Christmas they released an image that had every AR owners mouth watering. In the image (see below) there was a sneak peek at the new Geissele Ambi Charging Handle and Geissele T1/T2 micro red dot mount. The Ambi Charging Handle looks like it has a nice curve to the handles which should help you really get a good grip on it for ease of use and the T1/T2 mount looks low profile but stout.

Another new product coming soon is a new scope mount for the 50 BMG rifle. As you can imagine, due to recoil you can’t just use any old scope mount on a 50 BMG. The new Geissele 50 BMG Scope Mount will feature a 3 bolt design for the mount to rifle interface as well as a 3 bolt design for the scope ring caps to clamp on and hold the optic nice and tight over a larger surface area. If you own a 50 BMG rifle, this might be something to look into!

As you can see, Geissele isn’t just sitting around happy to be making Triggers and Rails. They are working continually to add more and more to their lineup all the time. Now if we could just talk Bill into making complete rifles we would be all set. :) For more information on Geissele product, head on over to www.Geissele.com.

New!! Rainier Arms Back Up Iron Sights

Posted on November 18th, 2015 by ar15news

I actually just got a set of these new Rainier Arms BUIS in for review and am very impressed with their initial look and feel. You can always feel the difference of a good quality product when it is in hand and these have that feel. Literally have only had time to open them up and fondle them a bit but will get them installed and in use asap. Here is some information on them if you are looking for a nice new set of BUIS.

Available for purchase now at www.RainierArms.com.

We designed the Rainier Arms backup-sight so the small and large ghost ring is on the same plane. It is not necessary to change the point of aim when the distance at the target remains unaltered. No tool is necessary to alter the height of the front sight. The Rainier Arms backup-sight is suitable for all AR 15 front sights having a 8-36 UNF thread. Because of this a large variety of after market front sights may be used.

The combination of steel parts where absolutely essential and high grade aluminum parts wherever sufficient, gave us the possibility to implement a sight with minimalistic design, low weight and minimum height.

Thanks to a special surface treatment all parts are corrosion resistant to withstand even maritime conditions. The spring- loaded folding mechanism reliantly protects the sight from damage when used under rough condition in the field.

The Rainier Arms backup-sight with its very low design in a height of only 9 mm / 0.35” allows to be used with extremely low mounted optics.

Made in Germany

American Defense Manufacturing just announced a few new red dot sight mounts. They are already well known for their Quick Detach scope mounts and red dot mounts but are adding a couple of cool options by way of a 33 degree and 45 degree offset mount for the Aimpoint T1/T2 red dot sight and the Trijicon RMR red dot sight.

American Defense Mfg T1 RMR offset QD Mounts

As you are probably already aware, engaging targets at close range with a traditional magnified scope is not an easy thing to do. Many guys will install offset backup sights which can take more time to align the front and rear sight if you need to rapidly acquire a target. By using an offset red dot sight mount you get the benefit of not having to align anything, just put the red dot where it needs to be and fire.  

Choose between 33 and 45 degree offsets and Left or Right hand style. There are other options out there but until today, none were being offered by ADM with their trusted QD system which is a big deal. You can check these out for yourself at the links below.

New!! Luminescent Spike Sight Post for Magpul MBUS PRO

Posted on August 25th, 2015 by ar15news

Blitzkrieg Components just released the first photos of their new Magpul MBUS PRO Spike Shaped Front Sight Post. For the past few years they have been making the awesome Chevron Front Sight Post for most mil spec front sights but as soon as Magpul released their MBUS PRO all you heard was “What are you gonna make for the MBUS PRO?”. The MBUS PRO does not take a mil spec front sight post so Blitzkrieg Components had to do a complete ground up redesign. What they came up with looks pretty awesome to me. Its basically a Spike with a very sharp point like the top of a Chevron but it also features a luminescent strip that is very bright and high contrast during the day but also glows bright at night like their luminescent Chevron sight.

NEW Blitzkrieg Spike shaped sight post for the Magpul MBUS Pro sights. First model has a Luminescent Green stripe which is bright day or night.

Will be available Sept 2015.

Looks like this is just the first of many models of Blitzkrieg Components front sight posts for the Magpul MBUS PRO. According to BC the MBUS PRO Luminescent Spike front sight post will not be available until September 2015 which is fine by me. That is my birthday month after all. Looking forward to picking up a few of these to outfit my MBUS PRO obsession….collection.
