If you’ve ever owned a Pistol Caliber AR you know very well that fine tuning them is all about the buffer system as most Pistol Caliber ARs are blowback so there is no gas block or gas tube at all to adjust. However, fine tuning them is a must. I was absolutely surprised by the amount of felt recoil the first time I shot my 9mm PCC. Pistol Caliber Carbines are known for breaking a Bolt Catch and increasing internal wear if you don’t figure out how to slow down the Bolt. Most people end up guessing and buying a heavy buffer of any number of ounces or will buy a number of them and try them all (that’s what I did LoL). Quarter Circle 10, the industry leader and standard for Pistol Caliber ARs, has just introduced their new Adjustable Pistol Buffer Assembly which looks like a real winner.
Adjustable Blowback Buffer Assembly for use with most pistol caliber carbines, suppressed or unsuppressed, including 9MM, .40 S&W and .45ACP. Quick change weight management allows use with multiple configurations.
Package Includes: 4 aluminum weights, 4 steel weights, 4 tungsten weights, 4 rubber spacers, buffer body and allen wrench.
- 8620 Steel construction and QPQ nitrite finish for maximum wear and durability
- Easy user adjustability from 5-11oz with included Aluminum, Steel, and Tungsten weights
- Threaded retaining pin and included allen key eliminates need for hammer and punch
- Extended length for increased bolt catch life (no spacer necessary)
- Drop-in installation
- For use in carbine length buffer tubes
- Ideal for tuning your Pistol caliber AR for the best function, felt recoil, and sound suppression
***For pistol caliber blow back builds only
Whether you’re planning a new Pistol Caliber Carbine build or wanting to fine tune your existing PCC, this might be a great answer to the perfect running gun. Check them out at www.RainierArms.com.
If you’re a fan of fixed sights on your AR, you’re going to want to check these out!! It’s been a while since Centurion Arms did a run of their super popular C4 Diopter Sights. The C4 Diopter Sights basically take the look and feel of HK Iron Sights and adapt them for use on an AR-15 with a standard flat top upper receiver.
“Centurion Arms is reintroducing a set of “diopter” style iron sights for use with AR-15 or M4 flat top receivers. The sights are designed to the correct ergonomic height for the standard AR-15/M4 flat top receivers in any of the popular calibers including (5.56, 300BLK, 9mm ect) for the proper feel and rapid sight acquisition.”
“The rear drum has four different apertures, allowing the shooter to rapidly adjust for different light conditions. It uses a standard HK type adjustment tool for windage and elevation.”
“The front sight mounts to any commonly available same plane rail style hand guard that is the industry standard. It uses a standard fixed blade which can be replaced with the tritium front sight blade commonly sold for the HK91/94/93/ and MP5’s.”
“Both front and rear sights are also compatible with any standard AR-15/M4 sights, including any standard height back up iron sights or the detachable carry handle rear sights. This offers the shooter maximum sight options. The Centurion Arms sights also take up a minimal amount of rail space leaving plenty of room to be used as back up iron sights in conjunction with Aimpoint, EOTech and most other readily available red dot sights.”

“The front and rear sight set retails for $225.00. For more information, please contact Centurion Arms at www.centurionarms.com, email@example.com“
The original Battle Arms Development Enhanced Bolt Catch, also known as the BAD-EBC, is a very popular aftermarket option for upgrading the Bolt Catch on an AR-15. Being that it was made from 8620 billet steel it also came with a $42 price tag. Battle Arms Development wanted to make a more affordable version of this popular item so they created the new BAD-EBC-IC. The “IC” stands for Investment Cast which is a much more budget conscious way of producing the Enhanced Bolt Catch.
Battle Arms Development’s latest, cost friendly Enhanced Bolt Catch, from 8620 Heat Treated Investment Cast Steel, is a must have upgrade that is simple to install and improves the functionality of any Mil-Spec compatible AR-15 / M16 / M4 lower receiver.
Enhanced Control Surfaces, Better Ergonomics, Lightweight Engineering, 8620 Heat Treated Investment Cast Steel and Versatile Modular Design for Future Add-On Product(s).
– 8620 Heat Treated Investment Cast Steel
– Oversize Control Surfaces for Easy Engagement
– Lightweight but Robust Design 0.39oz (MilSpec Bolt Catch – approx 0.42oz)
– Raised “T-Shaped” Heel Provides Positive and Distinctive Control Surface for Bolt Lock Back
– Compatible with Norgon Ambi-Catch Without Interference
– Elegant Tapered Control Surface and Skeletonized Design
– Bold Horizontal and Diagonal Serrations Provides Positive Purchase
– Versatile, Modular Design for Future Add-On Product(s)>
– Black Oxide Finish
The new Investment Cast model of the BAD-EBC is now available and at a cost of just $15 its going to be a hard option to beat. Whether you’re just looking for an upgrade that looks good or a very functional upgrade that doesn’t break the bank, the BAD-EBC-IC is a great option to look into.
The new Rainier Arms Ultramatch 9mm Complete Upper is here! This complete upper was designed from the ground up by the Rainier Arms competitive shooting team to meet their specs for the perfect 9mm competition upper including a 16″ Rainier Arms Ultramatch 9mm barrel, 14″ Switch Rail, Mod2 Avalanche ambi charging handle and Faxon Firearms 9mm BCG. The 16″ Ultramatch barrel ensures the ability to make closeup shots as well as distance shots with easy all while using the same mags and ammo as your handgun.
Designed from the ground up in partnership with the Rainier Arms Shooting team, the Rainier Arms Ultramatch 9 PCC upper was purpose built to fit the needs of serious competitive shooters. But the Ultramatch 9 is easily multi-functional to fit any serious, hard use application. It was designed not only to be fast, but reliable and accurate and depending on the purpose, it can go from tactical to practical.
We started off with the robust Rainier Arms 9mm forged upper receiver, and used our 16″ Ultrmatch 9mm barrel with a 14″ Rainier Arms Switch rail and our Mod 2 Avalanche Charging handle lastly to help cycle the Faxon Gen 2 BCG. Every high end component we used in this build is of the best quality and was run and tested by our shooting team.
We’ve left the muzzle device as dealers choice, but we can easily thread one on for you, prior to shipping.
- Rainier Arms Forged 9mm upper receiver
- Rainier Arms Mod 2 Avalanche Charging handle
- Rainier Arms Ultramatch (Steel match Shilen) 16″ 1/10 twist – 1/2×28 thread Pitch – Bead blasted
- Rainier Arms 14″ Switch Rail / Keymod
- Backup Tactical thread protector
- Faxon Gen 2 BCG
While this might be the perfect competition 9mm upper it also would make for a great non-NFA / non-PISTOL upper as well for those who are looking for a quality, affordable Pistol Caliber Carbine upper that is ready to go right out of the box. If this sounds like something you’re looking for, check it out at www.RainierArms.com.
After quite a long time out of stock, Ballistic Advantage 5.45×39 barrels are finally back in stock. 5.45×39 is the ammo that you usually shoot out of an AK-74 and for a long time was some of the cheapest centerfire rifle ammo around. If you’re like me you stocked up on it when you could and now need a good barrel to shoot it all. The Ballistic Advantage 5.45×39 barrels are some of the nicest you’ll find anywhere, are very accurate and are machined from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel with a QPQ Corrosion Resistant Finish. Ballistic Advantage also includes a WOLF Extra Power Hammer Spring to ensure proper function. They also have 5.45×39 Bolts available for pre-order as well.
I have built a few 5.45×39 uppers including one with a BA barrel and I love it. Head on over to www.BallisticAdvantage.com now to snag a few of these barrels while they last. You won’t be disappointed.
Pantheon Arms is well known for their awesome upgrades to the Dolos Quick Change Barrel System and now they’ve introduced a brand new product called the Kentri Short Buffer System for AR-15s that will work with both rifle caliber and pistol caliber builds. This should be perfect for one of those super compact AR Pistol “Truck Gun” “Backpack Gun” Builds.
The new Kentri Short Buffer System is just 3.5″ long and features a floating guide rod to keep everything aligned in the buffer, doesn’t require a proprietary BCG, supports the SB Tactical Braces and Shockwave Blade and at just $55 is less than 1/3 the price of most other Short Buffer Systems on the market.
So far, after a quick Google search, it looks like Vision Defense LLC (they’re the ones who tagged me on Instagram about this new product) is the only company to have these instock and listed on their website so you might want to check them out. They’re listed at $55.
You can also follow Pantheon Arms on Instagram and Facebook and check out their website www.PantheonArms.com.

As an AR owner, you’ve probably looked at the never ending sea of red dots available for your rifle. They range from super cheap junk that won’t even last on a Nerf gun to super expensive Space Shuttle Door Gunner level stuff. One of the best affordable yet bomb proof red dots is the Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic also known as the PRO. The PRO comes with an okay mount but its heavy, bulky and not very easy on the eyes. Thankfully SCALARWORKS, makers of some of the sexiest, lightest and strongest optic mounts on the planet have just released the LDM-PRO or Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint PRO. Check out the details below, you won’t be disappointed.
Easton,PA – Scalarworks is pleased to introduce the Low Drag Mount (TM)for Aimpoint PRO sights; the lightest quick-detach Aimpoint PRO mount in existence.
The LDM/PRO is a lightweight, high-strength, low-profile, quick-detach optic mount for with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rails, that is compatible with the Aimpoint PRO, Aimpoint ACO, Aimpoint CompM2, and Aimpoint CompM3, and most other 30mm tube sights.
The Scalarworks LDM/PRO features a user friendly and low-profile 30mm ring. The Scalarworks ring has a precision fitted alloy steel hinge that ensures even pressure around the optic, without requiring the tedious and imprecise setup that traditional rings do. Twin oversize CNC machined shoulder screws provide even tension and act as structural elements, making the entire ring assembly phenomenally rigid.
Like every Scalarworks Low Drag Mount (TM), the LDM/PRO has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any quick detach mount on the market. It’s tubular monolithic base is CNC machined from ultra high-strength 7075-T6 aluminum, and features our patented recoil-proof thumbscrew with ball detent mechanism. It also has the same precision telescoping clamp as our popular Aimpoint Micro, and Trijicon MRO mounts, which ensures a repeatable zero with each installation.
The LDM/PRO weighs less than 2.45oz (in lower-third height) which is less than half that of Aimpoint’s bundled QRP2 mount. The LDM/PRO is proudly made in the USA, and is available in both Absolute and Lower-Third Co-Witness height variants.

ETS Group introduced their C.A.M. Pistol Magazine Loader a few months ago and is now introducing their new Universal C.A.M. Rifle Magazine Loader. The Universal C.A.M. Rifle Magazine Loader works very similar to how their Pistol Magazine Loader works. Simply attach the loader to the mag, pick up the ammo with the loader and then use the plunger to push the rounds into the mag. There are lots of mag loaders out there but most are much larger and the C.A.M. has a very impressive list of Mags and Calibers that it can load. Take a look at the details and video below.
– Loads rifle mags in seconds! Truly the first universal speed loader for rifle mags.
– Works with AR15, AK47, AK74, G36, Steyr Aug, MP5, Scorpion EVO, Colt SMG, UZI, AR10, and more.
– Loads the following calibers: 5.56×45 /.223, .300BLK, 7.62×39, 5.45×39, 9mm, .308 and more.
– Picks rounds up from ammo tray. User doesn’t have to even touch ammo.
– Feeds easily and won’t damage the mags in any way.
– Portable, easily fits in your range bag.
– Made from an extremely durable polymer that will hold up to wear and tear.
– Lifetime Warranty
I know I would rather be shooting guns than loading mags but it seems like you spend more time loading at the range than anything else. If you want to spThe ETS Group Universal C.A.M. Rifle Magazine Loader is available to order now for just $29.99 at www.ETSGroup.us.
