NEW!! Lantac RPS (Ratchet Plate System) QD End Plate

Posted on March 23rd, 2017 by ar15news

Lantac has just introduced their own spin on a ratcheting castle nut and end plate combo that does not require the end user to stake the castle nut. The Lantac system uses a castle nut with pretty aggressive teeth  machined on one side that faces towards the end plate which engage with a tooth on the end plate that is under spring tension. These two lock together for a setup that cannot vibrate loose which is why you don’t have to stake it. 

Lantac RPS Ratche Plate System end plate

The Lantac RPS, Ratchet Plate System removes the necessity to stake castle nuts in place after fitting. It also provides a QD Sling attachement point directly below the buffer tube. It utilises a one piece designed ratched tooth and arm, machined directly into the anti rotation plate itself. 

The enhanced castle nut has an aggressive grip pattern and radially machined groves that register with the spring like arm and tooth on the plate, causing the nut to be retained in place. The nut cannot vibrate loose through firing but can be removed through the use of an armourers wrench if necessary. The teeth and groves are all internal when fitted together so they cannot be accidentally damaged. lighter weight with additional functionality over the standard original design.

I spoke with Brett at Lantac today and he said these are currently in production so look for them to be available for purchase soon. I unfortunately could not nail him down on a price or exact release date.

**PRESS RELEASE**

Ground Zero Precision is proud to announce their exclusive distribution agreement with Stiller’s Precision to bring the sniper inspired Predator XT billet AR-15 Lower Receiver to market.

Give your next precision AR-15 project a state of the art foundation with the Predator XT Billet AR lower by Stiller’s Precision. Jerry Stiller, world renowned designer and manufacturer of the U.S. Navy’s legendary MK13 300WM sniper rifle action, researched far and wide to determine what exactly the perfect precision AR lower receiver should be and the Predator XT is the result. He very quickly determined that the only way he could offer all of the features he wanted while completely eliminating torsional stress would be to start with a billet blank. After a painstaking and extensive material study it was determined that the best combination of stiffness, strength and toughness necessary for the foundation of a hyper-accurate AR rifle was offered by a relatively unknown high performance aircraft alloy that is used predominately in the construction of the F-16 and other U.S. military fighter jet structures. The alloy, 7050-T7651, is almost twice as strong as 6061-T6 and has better crack resistance than 7075-T6 while offering a higher level of corrosion resistance and lighter relative weight than both. As with everything else Jerry has produced this alloy was the absolute best material for the job, so that is what he used.

As for the design, it all started with the standard forged Mil-Spec lower receiver drawing and quickly morphed into something completely different as features were added and deemed necessary. In order to add the torsional stiffness necessary in a precision rifle foundation, the magwell area was ribbed in a truss pattern along with an expanded width trigger guard. The magwell was designed and chamfered to allow for a wider flare for easy magazine insertion and sized to allow all currently marketed magazines to drop free without snagging or catching in the magwell. Rather then machine or broach the magwell, wire EDM technology was used to more exactly control the size and exact position for flawless feeding. A textured finger grip area was added to the front to help control the weapon when holding with the offhand on the magwell. To help keep a wide range of upper receivers tight, all of the pin locations and mating surfaces are under constant and close control during the machining process and a nylon tipped tension adjustment screw was added under the rear pin location to allow the shooter a wider range of upper receiver choices and the ability to keep the lower and upper fit tight with one simple adjustment. All of the edges and inner corners have been chamfered or rounded for ergonomics and additional strength. The stock boss (buffer tube area) on the back was also beefed up to add strength and a small setscrew was added for the rear pin spring to help keep stock installation or replacement a snap. After all that, a Mil-Spec type III 2 mil thick hard anodize is performed by one of the defense industries’ top suppliers for excellent surface wear, additional corrosion resistance and ravishing good looks.

The Predator XT lower receiver is made available through an exclusive agreement between Stiller’s Precision and Ground Zero Precision.

Features Summary:
– Precision machined from 7050-T7651 aluminum super alloy for the absolute highest stiffness, strength and toughness
– X-Rib magwell stiffeners and extended width machined in trigger guard add overall strength and stiffness.
– Flared magwell that is wire EDM cut for exact size and alignment for easy drop free use of all currently marketed magazines.
– Machined finger grip pad on front of the lower allows for easy control of weapon during use
– Extra beefy stock boss adds strength, stiffness and greatly reduces the chance of breakage when used with even the most powerful cartridges.
– A setscrew is added to help retain rear pin spring and ease the installation or replacement of stocks.
– Nylon tipped tension adjustment screw allows the shooter to adjust the lower to upper receiver fit.
– Type III hard anodized to 2 mil deep for excellent wear and looks
– Marked for multi-caliber use and specified as other to ATF so that it can be used for pistol or rifle

About Stiller’s Precision:

Stiller’s Precision Firearms was founded in 1998 by Jerry Stiller, a defense engineer working for Raytheon. His goal was to supply shooters with a best quality product for a reasonable price. Curtis Helton, a Raytheon machinist soon joined the company and we became successful benchrest suppliers and mediocre shooters. In 2005 we added our hunting line of actions, the Predator series. Soon after the TAC series for the tactical market followed. We still follow our original goal and feel it has served us well. Currently we build actions for all different parts of the industry including the MK13 for the US Military. Many of the custom rifle builder’s receivers you see are made right here by us.

Stiller’s Precision Firearms is able to keep the quality up and costs down by a unique blend of processes used to manufacture our receivers. We have over 20 late model CNC machines dedicated to building receivers and their parts. We buy the best to build the best. Most of our machines are dedicated to one operation. By doing this, the quality and consistency goes up and labor cost goes down by never having to tear down setups. As soon as anything looks or sounds different it is quickly apparent to the machinist and the problem is solved. Our volume allows this to happen and work for you, our customers, we deliver the best quality and value possible.

We use the best materials, tooling and processes to ensure our actions are second to none in quality or value. All of the steel used in action bodies is 416R barrel quality stainless and the one piece bolts are made from VAR aircraft certified 4140 alloy steel. Small parts are built out of materials best suited for their purpose and includes many tool steels and exotic high strength aluminum alloys.

NEW!! Arisaka Defense Vertical Grip for the Sig MPX Gen 1

Posted on March 21st, 2017 by ar15news

Everyone knows that Arisaka Defense makes some awesome lights and light mounts, hand stops, sling mounts, etc. but they don’t automatically associate Arisaka with Vertical Grips. However, Arisaka has been making M-LOK, KeyMod and CMR Vertical Grips and have now partnered up with SKD Tactical to bring to market the new Vertical Grip for the Sig MPX Gen 1.

The Gen 1 MPX’s had a handguard with a proprietary mounting system so you were pretty limited to what accessories you could attach to it unless you added picatinny sections. The new Arisaka Vertical Grip mounts to the handguard without any adapters for a nice low profile setup and will be available exclusively through SKD Tactical. Check out the pics and details below.

Arisaka MPX Vertical Grip SKD Tactical 2

Arisaka MPX Vertical Grip SKD Tactical 2

The Arisaka Vertical Grip is a robust, minimal grip for the MPX Gen1 handguard. It features a radiused profile at the top which tapers to meet the mounting surface on the handguard, giving a low-profile feel and ergonomic comfort. Twin mounting screws and a recoil lug ensure secure attachment. The grip is hollow, with no end-cap.

Height: 2.50″
Width: 1.30″
Weight: 1.8 oz

The Vertical Grip is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized. Requires a 5/32″ Allen wrench for installation (not included). Made in the USA.

**Press Release**

Griffin Armament is proud to announce the “Make Silencers Great Again Promotion” Effective immediately every silencer* shipping from Griffin’s manufacturing floor to its Dealers and Distributors will contain two $100 coupons which can be mailed to Griffins address in exchange for store credit on their website.  Boxes containing coupons will be sealed with a gold label.

Make Silencers Great Again Promotion Griffin Armament

“Sales are down unnecessarily”, said Evan Green business development manager at Griffin Armament. “When the markets have been rallying and jobs are being produced, consumer misunderstanding of the legislative process and the Hearing Protection Act, is hurting an otherwise stable industry. Many people who want to buy are sitting on discretionary spending in the hopes that HPA will soon pass. The entire industry has come to a very similar conclusion that it will be quite a while until HPA is able to pass if at all despite almost unanimous support. People not buying right now is only further delaying them from enjoying silencers. It just doesn’t make any sense and this shouldn’t have happened.  Unfortunately a lot of miss information was flying around and nobody in the industry was trying to educate consumers on how long it actually takes to get a bill to pass, what percentage of bills pass, that the legislative process usually takes hundreds of days etc. This bill in some form has been presented to congress since 2015 and this congressional session is closing in a few months, so it looks like it will be rolling to another year.  Griffin is just as hopeful as everyone else for the HPA. However having a realistic viewpoint on it is critical to the survival of the silencer industry and the Americans who work hard to move it forward.  The ‘Make Silencers Great Again’ promotion is the most we can do as a company to try to encourage spending right now.” Evan continued. “It’s honestly an amazing time to be a buyer.  I remember when I was younger and was spending my money on an OPS INC can and promotions didn’t exist in the market. You could barely even get a dealer to handle the sale for you. Muzzle devices had to be purchased separately from the silencer, etc. I remember having to help my local class 3 dealer to understand the paperwork because he did so few transactions. But times have changed and there are plenty of dealers on the market selling products at great prices and walking the customer through the purchase quickly while keeping them informed. This program is also a great way to let consumers know that we appreciate them, we’ve been wanting to so something like this for a while.”

Midwest Industries just announced their new Blast Can muzzle device and I’ve got to say, it looks pretty nice. It is 1.2″ wide and appears to be somewhere around 3″ long. The 1.2″ outside diameter means it will fit underneath a large number of rail systems which is a very popular setup. The fluting along the sides gives it a nicer look as well. The other nice part is that everyone should be able to afford one with an MSPR at just $34.95.

New Images & Details – Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight

Posted on February 20th, 2017 by ar15news

If you remember, back in November we were one of the first to give you a sneak peek of the new Vortex Optics Razor AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight. At that time all we had were some minor details and a single image. Since then more details and images have come out, including these images below that my buddy Greg Skaz Photography took while at SHOT Show 2017. 

Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 1

Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 2

As you can see the Razor AMG UH-1 is not some wimpy little optic. It has a larger all metal housing that keeps everything protected and a built-in quick detach mount. There are 15 brightness settings for the new EBR-CQB reticle (shown below) and still includes the built-in micro-usb port for charging rechargeable CR-123 batteries. One thing I heard was that Vortex has been getting 1,500 hours of run time per CR-123 battery which sounds pretty awesome. Full details available at www.VortexOptics.com.

Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Reticle

Here’s an awesome overview video Vortex Optics put together showing the optic and its features. 

The MSRP price for the Razor AMG UH-1 is $699 but there are a few retailers taking pre-orders right now at just $499. I’ve listed links to them below. Vortex has said they will start filling pre-orders this Spring which, believe it or not, is right around the corner. If you’re looking to get your hands on one of these bad boys, put in your pre-order and then sit in your lawn chair out by the mail box.

NEW!! Faxon Firearms AR9 BCG – COLT / Glock Hybrid

Posted on February 13th, 2017 by ar15news

Faxon Firearms has really been branching out lately into new arenas but this one came as a surprise. The new Faxon Firearms AR9 BCG is for the super popular Pistol Caliber Carbines. Instead of choosing between Glock mag compatible or COLT mag compatible design, Faxon made this one so it will work with both. They’ve also made it a one piece design so the key is machined in instead of bolted on, it has a full auto carrier shape and a Black Nitride finish. 

Faxon Firearms AR9 COLT Glock Bolt 1Faxon Firearms AR9 COLT Glock Bolt 1Faxon Firearms AR9 COLT Glock Bolt 1

We just can’t help not accepting the status quo. Bolt carrier groups are available aplenty, but few could meet our exacting standards for performance and value. Seeing current offerings as just the starting point, we set out to ensure the best options are available for our demanding customers.

Improvements include cuts to ensure both Glock and Colt-style lower receiver compatibility. The key is machined directly into the bolt carrier – no fasteners to check or worry about. Finally, we keep the full-auto compatibility for use with new binary-style trigger systems.

DETAILED SPECIFICATIONS:

Carrier & Integrated Key:
– Compatibility: GLOCK & COLT – Style Lower Receivers
– Carrier: MIL-SPEC 8620 Steel Material
– Key: One-Piece Integrated Key
– Fully Heat Treated
– Forward Assist Serrations
– M16 (FULL-AUTO) Compatible
– QPQ – Salt Bath Nitrided

The new Faxon Firearms AR9 Glock & Colt lower compatible BCG is 1-2 weeks out but you can pre-order yours by emailing pat@faxonfirearms.com. More pictures and pricing available at www.FaxonFirearms.com.

Hexmag’s NEW Glock Compatible Pistol Magazines

Posted on February 10th, 2017 by ar15news

**Press Release**

February, 2017–Loveland, CO- Hexmag, LLC– maker of the most advanced and versatile AR-15/AR-10 platform magazines on the market, proudly announces its move into high-quality pistol magazines that will be available in early Spring of 2017.

Hexmag Glock Pistol Mag

These robust new lightweight (1.4 ounces) magazines feature a 17-round capacity for the Glock Model 17 and are also compatible with Glock 17C, G26, G34 and G17L models. Hexmag will follow launch of the 17-round magazine with a 10-round version for California residents and a 30-round version for those who need a super-high capacity magazine.

Hexmag’s Glock compatible magazines are available in either Black or Flat Dark Earth (FDE) matte finish and come with Hexmag’s patented gripping surface and a textured front-side “training” pattern for fast and easy indexing when reloading.

Constructed of Hexmag’s high-impact UV stabilized PolyHex2 Advanced Composite, these are tough magazines designed for hard work. Hexmag uses a proprietary Fusiform heat-treated stainless steel spring set at OEM tension for reliable feeding even after long-term storage when kept fully loaded.

“We listened closely to the market,” says Hexmag’s marketing director Dave Smith, “and saw the need for an alternative polymer Glock compatible magazine that was affordable, lightweight and as tough as our AR-15 and AR-10 magazines – and then refined and upgraded the design by integrating the classic hexagonal pattern for enhanced grip and indexing reference points.”

It gets better! These new pistol magazines feature Hexmag’s industry-first pistol identification system, the HexID Color Identification System perfected on its AR-15/AR-10 magazines. The base plate can be easily removed without tools and the follower and base latch plate color changed to designate which ammunition/bullet is in the magazine for quick identification.

MSRP: $16.99

Hexmag pistol and rifle magazines are made in the USA and come with Hexmag’s Lifetime Warranty!
