NEW!! Bobro Lowrider Sights

Posted on January 7th, 2015 by ar15news

Bobro Engineering just introduced a great looking set of low profile “Lowrider Sights” on their Facebook page yesterday. This is about as low profile as it gets while still maintaining the normal functions of a set of backup sights such as windage and elevation adjustments, etc. not to mention these sights have secondary locks to ensure once you sight them in nothing moves after you zero the weapon. Check out the pics and details of this very cool set of sights below. Looks like first production run will be done after SHOT Show which is later this month.

Bobro Lowrider Sights (Patent Pending). We designed a set of sights that are truly low profile.

Design requirements—
1-Low as possible
2-Durable
3-Locks on opening
4-Fits under optics/mounts
5-Lightweight

We designed a side pivot mechanism for strength and the lowest possible profile that will remain durable. The side pivot has internal detents, and we also incorporated a drive pin lock system. You must depress a button to fold them back down.

These next two photos really show just how low profile they are.

Save Big with ADM’s Aimpoint T-2 Optic/Mount Combo Deals

Posted on December 10th, 2014 by ar15news

American Defense Mfg let us know yesterday that they just added the new Aimpoint T-2 Optic and Mount combos to their website. This is great news for a few reasons. One, people have been itching to get their hands on the new T-2 red dot ever since it was introduced a while back. Two, whenever ADM offers “Optic/Mount” packages everybody WINS! The way it always works is you are basically gonna get an American Defense Mfg mount for FREE or close to it. For example, the cost of the T-1/T-2 mount is around $100 but with the combo, you’re saving almost $160. That means you’re not only getting a FREE QD mount but also saving on the optic as well. Now that’s a deal. If anyone wants to get me this combo for Christmas…I won’t be mad. :)

Purchase your new Aimpoint T-2 optic with your choice of Co-Witness, Low or SOCOM height mounts at www.ADM-MFG.com.

BROWE recently introduced their new BTO or BROWE Tactical Optic. You are probably already familiar with their awesome BCO (BROWE Combat Optic). Essentially the only difference is that the BCO has a Titanium housing and the new BTO features a forged 7075-T6 Aluminum housing. This equates to a slightly lower retail price while still maintaining super high quality construction and ruggedness. I spoke with Brian Browe, President of BROWE Inc. regarding the new BTO today and he told me the actual MSRP will be $1,200 but they are offering it at an awesome intro price of just $875 this week. The price will slowly creep up to the regular MSRP so if you want one, jump on it now while its at the lowest price.

4×32 BROWE Tactcial Optic

The 4×32 BROWE Tactical Optic (BTO) was designed to put all of the features and components of the BROWE Combat Optic into a forged 7075-T6 Aircraft Aluminum-ally housing.

The forged 7075-T6 aircraft aluminum alloy housing provides for a nearly indestructible optic system ideally suited for military, police, and sportsmen. It delivers state-of-the-art optic that delivers highest quality optical glass, high precision machining, with a rugged military design.

NEW!! Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights

Posted on November 20th, 2014 by ar15news

Man, I am seriously going poor with all of these awesome new products that companies like Magpul are releasing lately. With the release of the new Offset version of the awesome MBUS PRO sights, I don’t see the bleeding stopping anytime soon. Offset sights work great with magnified optics. Switch from magnified (longer range) optics to non-magnified (close range) sights by simply rotating the gun about 45 degrees. The fact that these are collapsible sights make them very low profile when not in use as well.

I’m really excited to give these new Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights a try. I did the same thing with the standard MBUS PRO sights and now I have like 5 sets. :) As far as I can tell these are in-stock and ready to go now at www.Magpul.com at just $189.90 for a front and rear set. I’ll race you over there to see who can get a set faster.

You might remember that a few weeks ago we broke the news of the new Chevron Night Sight from Blitzkrieg Components. People have been asking for a night sight version for a while and these look pretty sweet. My buddy Nate of NSZ85 got his hands on one and decided to do a nice video of his review and installation. If you’re interested, take a few minutes and watch the video below. I would strongly recommend following NSZ85’s YouTube channel as well for more awesome videos.

The new Blitzkrieg Components Chevron Night Sight is available for purchase now at BlitzkriegComponents.com.

Usually when you purchase a mount for your Aimpoint Micro mount you have to decide if you want an Absolute Co-Witness mount or a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness mount. Not many companies offer a mount that can be configured for both but that is exactly what Daniel Defense just released. The new mount looks very similar to their already very popular Aimpoint Micro Mount but now comes with an Absolute Co-Witness base and a bolt on spacer that converts the mount to a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness height mount. Now you don’t have to figure out which model you prefer and no need to buy multiple mounts. Check out the pics and details for the new mount below, then head on over to www.DanielDefense.com to purchase one for yourself. 

Daniel Defense Convertible Aimpoint Mount 1 copyDaniel Defense Convertible Aimpoint Mount 2 620

The newest generation of the Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount gives users the option of both an absolute or lower 1/3 co-witness with iron sights and Aimpoint’s popular Micro R-1, H-1, T-1, or T-2 optics. Its light weight, essentials-only design offers a snag-free, low-profile, reversible mounting option for shooters that do not require or desire a quick attach/detach mount. The mount features a recoil lug which interfaces with the bottom of the optic and prevents the energy from recoil and counter recoil from transferring to and damaging the factory mounting screws. This further increases durability and ensures a repeatable zero shot after shot. The Aimpoint® Micro Mount features our Patented Rock & Lock® attachment system and secures to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail with two slotted machine screws. These fasteners thread into stainless steel self-locking threaded inserts that resist vibration and loosening. Offering absolute or a lower 1/3 co-witness with your back-up iron sights, this mount is ideal for shooters who are looking for the lightest mount to accent their Aimpoint® Micro. In order to achieve a lower 1/3 co-witness, the user includes the spacer with the mount when installing the optic. For an absolute co-witness, simply install optic without the spacer. The Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount has been proven to be one of the most durable and light weight mounts available.

-  Absolute or lower 1/3rd co-witness
–  Recoil Lug Interface between mount and optic
–  Snag Free and reversible
–  Patented Rock & Lock® Attachment System
–  Light Weight

MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION

–  Precision CNC machined from Aircraft Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum
–  Military Specification Type III Hard Coat Anodized
–  1.5oz or 1.8oz with Lower 1/3 spacer
–  Made in the USA!

NEW!! Scalarworks LDM Ultra Light Weight Aimpoint T-1 Mount

Posted on October 17th, 2014 by ar15news

Scalarworks has just released their new LDM with stands for Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint Micro (T-1 and H-1) optics. The LDM goes against conventional thought regarding optic mounts which says you can’t have Light Weight and Quick Detach at the same time. Weighing in at just 1.33 ounces and featuring a notched thumbwheel with ball detent that won’t back-out under heavy recoil you can now have the best of both worlds. Check out the pictures and press release for the Scalarworks LDM below. Additional information is also available at Scalarworks.com.

SCALARWORKS LAUNCHES WORLD’S LIGHTEST QUICK-DETACH AIMPOINT MICRO MOUNT.

Scalarworks_ldm-micro_twins

South Orange, NJ – October 15, 2014 – Scalarworks, manufacturer of high-performance firearm accessories, is pleased to introduce the Low Drag Mount for Aimpoint Micro sights (LDM/Micro); the lightest quick-detach Aimpoint Micro mount in existence – weighing only 1.33oz. The LDM/Micro is a lightweight, low-profile, quick-detach optic mount that is compatible with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rails and all Aimpoint Micro sights, including the new Aimpoint Micro T-2.

The Scalarworks LDM/Micro has a streamlined profile, free of protruding levers or knobs, featuring a notched thumbscrew with ball detent that won’t back out under sharp recoil. It also has a precision telescoping clamp that ensures a repeatable zero with each installation, while conforming to out of spec rails, without requiring additional adjustments.

The LDM/Micro is made in the USA and available now from Scalarworks.com in two Co-Witness heights, Absolute and Lower-Third, with an MSRP of $149.

NEW!! Blitzkrieg Components Luminescent Chevron Night Sight

Posted on October 9th, 2014 by ar15news

Quite a while ago I introduced you guys to the Blitzkrieg Components Chevron front sight post. Its a drop-in replacement for your standard front sight post that gives you a really sharp “Chevron” aiming point and a bright white stripe to makes for quick target acquisition in pretty much any lighting condition…that is except for in the dark. Seems like every day someone would post on their Facebook page that they wish there was a night sight option. Blitzkrieg Components listened and accepted the challenge. The new Luminescent Chevron Night Sight is officially available for purchase and looks to be another winner from Blitzkrieg Components. 

The Night Sight version appears Yellow in the day light and is easily installed in pretty much any front sight that accepts mil spec sight posts. Shown below is the new Luminescent Chevron Night Sight and what it looks like installed in a Magpul MBUS sight.

Turn the lights out and the Yellow strip now shines a nice Green color. The sight luminescent strip can be charged with most any light but Sun Light or a bright Flashlight work best.

“Typically, in total darkness after being charged you can expect it to glow very bright for 5 minutes, bright for 20-30 minutes and at a lower level for several hours. This works very well to have a very bright glow when transitioning from daylight to a dark room and as your eyes adjust to lower light levels, the lower level glow will still appear bright and very easy to pick up.”

The new Luminescent Chevron Front Sight Post is available right now at BlitzkriegComponents.com for just $44.95. Be sure to snag some before they’re all gone. They also have their standard White Stripe and Solid Black Chevron sights as well if you don’t need the night sight option or want to save a few bucks.
