Out of all of the AR receivers out there the Sharps Bros receivers are by far the most unique of them all. The original Hellbreaker model broke the internet and became a huge success which ultimately paved way for the Warthog and The Jack lowers. This last week Sharps Bros announced they are releasing the new Gen2 versions of all 3 lower receivers.

The Gen2 versions will all include an updated design, threaded bolt catch pin, lighter weight and lower cost. The Hellbreaker and Warthog models also received some cool magwell cutouts that highlight their respective designs better.

LANTAC is on a roll! Not too long ago, LANTAC introduced a Dragon muzzle brake variant that included the GEMTECH QD Lugs. Now they have officially introduced a collaboration with SilencerCo that is a LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake with an integrated ASR Quick Mount System. The fact that LANTAC is working with Suppressor manufacturers to make muzzle brakes that are compatible with their popular suppressors is awesome. It means you can continue to use one of the best muzzle brakes on the market instead of being locked into using whatever the suppressor manufacturer gives you. Check out the information and pictures below.

LANTAC Dragon SilencerCo ASR Mount 1 copy

LANTAC DGN556B-ASR™ Dragon® Advanced Muzzle Brake with SilencerCo™ ASR Quick Mount Suppressor Adapter. The DGN556B-ASR™ is precision machined, hardened to 48Rc and nitride finished for enhanced corrosion resistance. It features our patented gas handling system that reduces muzzle rise and recoil to zero, meaning that the only recoil felt by the shooter is from the movement of the carrier and buffer within the buffer tube. Its unique Short Energy Pulse system reduces length of recoil so that repeating shot energy cannot overlap and knock the shooter off target. Full auto fire is possible with massively reduced recoil and muzzle climb, meaning that all shots fall on target. With the addition of the SilencerCo ASR quick mount system it is now possible to mount the SilencerCo Saker, Omega Suppressors and the Blast Shield.

The DGN556B-ASR™ Brake/ Mount is threaded 1/2-28UNEF and is designed to be used with 5.56/.223 Caliber ammunition only.

Comes with appropriate shim set for timimg the brake / mount. X2 .34mm, X3 .22mm, X3 .11mm, X4 .075mm & x1 2mm Washer.

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.

quarter-circle-10-adjustable-pistol-buffer-assembly

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.

quarter-circle-10-adjustable-pistol-buffer-assembly 2

  • 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.”

C4 Sights Diopter 3

“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.”

C4 Sights Rear-1

“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.”

C4 Sights Front-1

“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, sales@centurionarms.net

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.

Specs:
– 8620 Heat Treated Investment Cast Steel

– 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.

rainier-arms-ultramatch-9-pcc-9mm-complete-upper-1Designed 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.

Specs:

  • 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

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.

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.

Ballistic Advantage 5.45x39 Barrels InStock

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.

Dolos KENTRI AR15 Short Buffer System

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.
