**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.


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

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.

I’ve always been a fan of the rifles that SD Tactical Arms produces, many of which are auctioned off to benefit our Veterans and Veteran Charities. Yesterday they release some images of their new Lightweight Rifle and it looks fantastic. The complete rifle weighs in at just 5 pounds 12.4 oz and that is with a custom billet upper and lower receiver too. Check out the pics below.

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.

MagPod Designing Baseplate for Magpul M3 PMAG

Posted on April 18th, 2016 by ar15news

Right around the time that MagPod released their baseplate replacement for Gen M2 PMAGs, Magpul introduced their new Gen M3 PMAG and totally switched things up. By “switched things up” I mean they changed the base plate design which meant the MagPod would not fit on the new Gen M3 PMAG. Obviously there are a metric ton of Gen M2 PMAGs in use so its not a huge deal but it would be awesome to have the option to add a MagPod to the new Gen M3 PMAGs too. 

A few days ago MagPod released an image showing off the new design which looks similar to the current MagPod but will also incorporate some sort of retaining clip. Currently they are testing out a two-piece retaining clip and a one-piece retaining clip.

Magpod Gen M3 PMAG

Sneak peek at the patent pending M3 PMAG version of MagPod; even though the M3 PMAG baseplate slides on from the rear, we decided to make our version slide in from the FRONT, which allows us to keep the patented “forward biased” foot that MagPod is known for.

No firm release date yet – we are still evaluating the retaining clip options to see which holds up better to drop testing.

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this new MagPod version become available. You can follow along with the development of the new Gen M3 PMAG version of the MagPod  on the MagPod Facebook and Instagram accounts. 

Seekins Precision 1-Piece Scope Mount

Posted on April 13th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve heard that Seekins Precision will be releasing information on their new Scope Mount very soon. Not sure exactly when but until then I thought I would share a sneak peek at the new mount. These photos were posted on their Facebook page.

The photos that Seekins Precision has shared so far show a cantilever style 30mm scope mount that has two picatinny rail clamps that are secured by two large Torx screws. No word yet if there will be other styles, models or additional options to choose from but this version looks awesome. As you can see it looks great with both smaller 1-4 and 1-6 optics as well as larger magnification optics. Keep an eye out for more information on the new Seekins Precision Scope Mounts coming soon.

Sneak Peek!! SMOS Arms FSB and Switch Block Cutout Rails

Posted on April 6th, 2016 by ar15news

A few days ago SMOS Arms released a picture of some rails that were in the raw. SMOS Arms is well know for their slim rails that they have OEM’d for other well known companies. What’s cool about these rails they shared are that they are Quad Rails and they feature a modular cutout system. One is for an AR with a standard Front Sight Post or you can add in a small rail section at the top creating a smaller cutout to be used in conjunction with the Noveske Switch Block or possibly other adjustable gas block systems. There really aren’t a ton of details available for these new rails just yet but just wanted to share the sneak peek with you in case you didn’t see it yourself. Of course as with all prototypes, we’ll have to keep watching to see how product units come out.
