Cool Stuff From SHOT Show 2017 – Phase 5 Universal Mini Stock

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by ar15news

Phase 5 Weapon Systems Inc, (Phase5WSI) introduced a few new products this year at SHOT Show 2017 but the one that really stood out the most was this awesome new AR buttstock called the UMS or Universal Mini Stock. The Universal Mini Stock is an ultra compact al metal stock that can be attached to virtually any buffer tube out there including standard carbine buffer tubes and many AR Pistol buffer tubes. This could come in really handy for guys running an AR Pistol buffer tube on their AR Pistol while waiting for the tax stamp to come in. Once their stamp comes in and the AR is registered as an SBR you can just add the UMS on instead of needing to remove the pistol buffer tube and install a carbine buffer tube that accepts a stock. Sounds like these are a couple months away from being available for purchase. Check out the video and picture below.

More Fortis Mfg LA-Stock GunPorn

Posted on December 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

A few days ago I shared a sneak peek at the new Fortis Mfg LA (Lever Action) Stock. At that time all I had was a few CAD Drawings of the stock which looked awesome but was still hard to tell what it was going to look like. NOW….now I have some hotness! My buddy David was allowed to borrow a prototype LA-Stock that had been finished and install it on a rifle. Your opportunity to win one of these beautiful stocks and some pics can be found below!!

The Fortis Mfg LA Stock shown in these photos is still considered a prototype as there are a few tweaks that they are working on but you get a really good idea of what will be officially released in 1st Quarter 2017. The LA-Stock will not be a polymer stock but is a high end all aluminum stock with some actual carbon fiber accents. These won’t be cheap but they’ll be competitive with other aluminum stocks.

Next Level Arms, a company I am proud to say is local to me here in Michigan, is getting ready to release a really nice looking light weight AR-15 billet receiver set. The NLX15 billet receiver set will weigh just 15 ounces! That’s just under a pound for both upper and lower combined. 

As you can see in the images below there is quite a bit of material removed in places that will not effect the integrity of the receiver and without any skeletonized areas aside from the shell deflector. Another thing to note from the following photo….the forward assist has been moved a bit further forward to give a little more clearance for lefties using ambi charging handles such as the NLX Ambi Charging Handle.

From what I’ve been told, the new NLX FIFTEEN billet receiver sets will be available early January 2017. I now that sounds like “Next Year” but its really only a couple weeks away. I have not heard anything on price yet but I’ll be sure to update this post as soon as I have that information. Until then, check out all that Next Level Arms offers at www.NextLevelArms.com

**Sneak Peek** FightLite Industries Pistol Caliber Carbine

Posted on December 1st, 2016 by ar15news

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.

**First Look** Vortex Optics RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight

Posted on November 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Woke up to this in my email and wanted to share it with all of you!! Vortex Optics is releasing sneak peeks of their new Razor AMG UH-1 holographic sight. According to the information below it has few moving parts for maximum durability, uses CR123 batteries or rechargeable LFP CR123A batteries that can be recharged using the built-in waterproof micro-USB port. It will feature a new EBR-CQB reticle as well. It is not shown on the main Vortex Optics website yet so stay tuned for more information on this awesome looking new optic. 

www.VortexOptics.com

vortex-optics-razor-amg-uh-1-holographic-sight

Meet the Razor® AMG® UH-1, affectionately known in-house as “Huey.”  The UH-1 is a completely new force in weapon mounted holographic technology, and you’re one of the first to see it! Inside the durable aluminum chassis the UH-1 features fewer moving parts compared to traditional holographic sights, which equates to maximum durability. The sight is powered with the included CR123A battery, but also has the option of running LFP CR123A’s, which can be recharged using the on-board, waterproof micro-USB port. We believe the shooter is the only one who should see the new EBR-CQB reticle so we engineered the entire system to virtually eliminate all traces of forward signature, unlike any other red dot or holographic sight on the market.

**NEW** HERA ARMS CQR Stock and CQR Front-Grip

Posted on November 16th, 2016 by ar15news

Have you ever wanted to turn an AR15 SBR into an FN P90? Well, you can’t…but the new CQR Stock and CQR Front-Grip from HERA ARMS sure makes it look a lot like it. As you can see in the photos below, the CQR Stock also includes the pistol grip in on piece and the CQR Front-Grip is a pretty unique looking grip that mounts to the bottom picatinny rail of the handguard. 

hera-arms-cqr-stock-and-front-grip-1hera-arms-cqr-stock-and-front-grip-2

Right now it looks like they are about 3-5 weeks out from shipping but will be offering some sort of pre-order for the CQR Stock and CQR Front-Grip. Word is that the first samples of the CQR just landed at LAX so pre-orders could start any time. The pricing for both products including a “California Compliant” model are listed below.

– CQR Stock in all colors $119.00 ea.
– CQR Stock in all colors for California $124.00 ea.
– CQR Front grips in all colors $39.00 ea.

Do I Really Need Another Receiver Set?? I’m Thinking Yes!!

Posted on November 13th, 2016 by ar15news

Usually I would not say I “NEED” another receiver set but thanks to LANTAC leaking pics of their new LA-SF15 Forged Upper and Lower set I can confirm…I do actually need another receiver set! 🙂 Knowing LANTAC as well as I do, the LA-SF15 set is sure to be about as high quality as a forged receiver set gets. No word yet on actual specifics or features but you know I’ll be pestering them for the details this week for sure. Until then, take a look at the pics of the new LA-SF15 Forged Upper and Lower set below.

**NEW** SLR Rifleworks SR22 5.56 Single Port Brake

Posted on September 9th, 2016 by ar15news

SLR Rifleworks is probably most known for their rails and gas blocks but they actually have a huge lineup of muzzle brakes as well. Today they introduced another muzzle device to the family called the SR22 5.56 Single Port Brake. The SR22 5.56 Single Port Brake is just a nicely done muzzle brake with a single port which the name kind of already told you. 🙂 It is made of 416R Stainless Steel with a Melonite finish and is threaded for 1/2×28 barrels. The new SR22 5.56 single port brake should be up on the SLR Rifleworks website literally any minute now.

Umbrella Corp Weapons Research Group Teases New Billet Set

Posted on September 6th, 2016 by ar15news

We received an email from UCWRG (Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group) the other day that had some good intel in it and wanted to share it with anyone who didn’t receive the email as well.

If you resisted the urge to immediately click over and buy one of the UCWRG Raptor charging handles that were back in-stock and kept reading they included some good info on what changes are going on at UCWRG right now. New UCWRG BCGs will be released soon and they continue to have an issue with getting forgings that are up to their high quality standards. 

If you kept reading past that you get to what we all are interested in…UCWRG BILLET!! I am fortunate to own one of the very first UCWRG billet ambi lowers ever made and love it (its featured in a  lot of my SBR photos). UCWRG has never been able to keep up with demand for their products but it appears they may have figured out some of their production dilemmas as they are about to release a NEW billet lower and drumroll….billet upper. Photos and details below.

UCWRG billet lower v2UCWRG Billet Upper

We have a new billet lower design complete and we’re excited to get them out there. While we’d like to have receivers ready before the election, we’re pushing to have them finished before Christmas. Timelines can change, especially after November. Like our first billet design these will include the ADAC for right side bolt catch. We’ve made a few improvements to this lower; the magwell bevel is deeper and by popular request we’ve added a tension screw. You might also notice we’ve switched the logo from the 3D version to our standard deep laser engraved umbrella. These lower receivers still feature our unique magwell geometry and are WEDM cut for an even smoother finish. Billet uppers will follow soon after the lowers are released to complete the pair.

UCWRG SBR 620

So, if you’ve wanted to get on the UCWRG train, your chance might be coming sooner than you realize. I hope this means good things going forward for UCWRG and they do make a phenomenal product. Getting it out to the consumers is the key. You can check out all of the UCWRG products at www.UCWRG.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.

LANTAC 308 “Heavy” E-BCG

Posted on May 20th, 2016 by ar15news

LANTAC has been working on the new .308 (Heavy) Version of their E-BCG for some time now and they just announced it is now in production. The E-BCG is simply one of the best AR15 BCG’s on the market and now you’re looking at possibly the best AR10 BCG out there as well. Time will tell but I am expecting great things from the E-BCG “Heavy”. Not sure on price just yet but if the price of the AR15 E-BCG is any indicator, it’s not going to be cheap. We’ll keep you up to speed as more information regarding the E-BCG Heavy is released.
