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.

scalarworks_ops_LDM Aimpoint PRO

Easton,​​PA​​  ​​​– ​​Scalarworks ​​is ​​pleased ​​to ​​introduce​ ​the ​​Low ​​Drag ​​Mount (T​M)​​​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.

scalarworks_ops_LDM Aimpoint PRO 2

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 (T​M)​, ​​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.

ETS Group Universal CAM RIFLE Magazine Loader

LOADER FEATURES

– Works with AR15, AK47, AK74, G36, Steyr Aug, MP5, Scorpion EVO, Colt SMG, UZI, AR10, and more.

Ever since I SBR’d my QC10 9mm AR I have wanted to put a Battle Arms VERT PDW Stock on it. I have the VERT PDW Stock on one of my other SBR’s and it truly is one of the only PDW stocks that I feel can be used on just about any AR, even full size rifles because of its integrated cheek rest. The only holdback was that the standard buffer. While it works great with 5.56 and 300BLK, it wasn’t designed to work with a 9mm AR’s. While similar to a standard AR, a 9mm AR is definitely a fickle beast. After some months of testing, fine tuning and tweaking, Battle Arms is ready to release their new 9mm Buffer for the VERT PDW Stock.

Battle Arms 9mm VERT PDW Stock 1

The new Battle Arms 9mm Buffer weighs 5.7 ounces which is a little lighter than you might expect to run on your 9mm AR (I have run as high as 10 ounce buffers) but what makes this different and  is their patented, Recoil Reducing, Dual Spring Buffer Design which will help soften the recoil impulse and smooth things out considerably. 

Battle Arms 9mm VERT PDW Stock 2

The BAD VERT 9mm PDW Buffer will be sold as an upgrade item for those of us who already have a VERT stock in hand and will also available as a complete 9mm VERT PDW Stock System as well.

No matter how you slice it, this is an awesome upgrade to one of, if not THE best PDW stocks on the market. I have a BAD VERT PDW Stock that has been waiting for this day and soon will get put to work on the 9mm QC10 SBR. You can buy the buffer or the complete stock system at the links below. If you snag one, make sure you tag us in your pics on Facebook and Instagram so we can see what you guys are all running.

Aero Precision has grown a ton over the past 5 years. I still remember when they made standard forged upper and lower receivers and the COP Upper and that was it. Nowadays they make everything from AR-15 and AR-10 receivers to handguards to scope mounts to complete AR-15 and AR-10 rifles. Not to mention their capabilities with their sister companies Ballistic Advantage for barrels and VG6 Precision for muzzle devices. 

For a while now they have offered a handguard with a larger inside diameter which works awesome for tucking a suppressor underneath etc but some of their customers have requested a more low profile, slim handguard. That is why they started designing the new ATLAS S-ONE handguard.

AERO Precision Banner

The ATLAS S-ONE is the newest addition to the Aero Precision Handguard lineup. Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum, the S-ONE line of handguards are designed with size and weight in mind, providing the perfect handguard for your lightweight build. Our proprietary ATLAS attachment system is a durable and dependable mounting platform, maintaining a slim profile while still providing the strength and stability customers have grown to love from Aero Precision handguards.

AERO Precision atlas-s-one Handguard MLOK KeyMod

The new Aero Taper Lock Attachment System (ATLAS) is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It features 2 mirrored tapered locking nuts that provide evenly distributed clamping pressure across a custom engineered barrel nut with use of a turnbuckle screw. A ratcheting detent further secures the design while providing positive registration during installation. By design, the even pressure of the ATLAS system avoids distortion of the handguard often seen with current applications during installation.

atlas-s-one-fde-parts-detail_1

You’ll also notice at the 12 o’clock position on the handguard there are raised lines. When I handled the first ATLAS S-ONE off the machines at TriggrCon last month, the first thing I noticed was how good it felt in the hand and that those raised lines add just a little extra traction without being uncomfortable at all. 

Aero Atlas S One Handguard

Aero Precision is will be offering the new ATLAS S-ONE handguards in 12″ and 15″ lengths (7″ and 9″ coming soon) with your choice of KeyMod and MLOK and Black or FDE. And if you want to take it one step further, you can even get it paired with the new Gen2 Forged Upper as well.

AERO Precision s-one-atlas-handguard-combo

You can get your order in now for this first run of ATLAS S-ONE handguards with an expected ship date of 8/25/17. Head on over to www.AeroPrecisionUSA.com to pick out your new ATLAS S-ONE handguard.

If you’ve followed AR15NEWS for any decent length of time you’ve probably noticed we build lots of ARs. Some times, as an AR builder, it’s easy to get in a rut and kind of build the same thing over and over again which gets boring. All it takes is a bit of imagination and planning and your next build can be the best one you’ve ever put together. This is the very case with my most recent build. 

Believe it or not I had SBR’d this Rainier Arms forged lower well over a year ago but had no idea what I wanted to do with it. Then it came to me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. From there it was just a matter of time before I had the parts in hand and ready to build.

Lets start out with a few closer shots. From this angle you can see the Rainier Arms ambi safety, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle and Scalarworks OPS (On Point Sights) fixed rear sight.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 1 - Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Juggernaut Tactical Ambi Charging Handle - Rainier Arms Ambi Safety

As I mentioned above, this build got started as a Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC lower that I bought and Form 1’d just before the ATF41P effective date. I added a Rainier Arms forged upper and ambi safety, CMC Triggers Flat 3.5lb Trigger and LPK, Superlative Arms Piston Kit, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle, Geissele MK4 rail and Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights and Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint T1 and a SureFeed Magazines 20 Round mag.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 2 - CMC Triggers Flat Trigger Geissele SMR MK4 rail Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Aimpoint Micro T1 Rainier Arms A-DAC

Of course as a Rainier Arms SBR build I chose to use their 10.5″ .223 Wylde barrel. Covered it with a Geissele MK4 rail, Arisaka Defense 300/IR Series Scout Light and Inline Scout Mount, SureFire SR07 switch, Scalarworks OPS Fixed Front Sight, Magpul vertical grip and Griffin Armament Taper Mount Supresspr Mount. The Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under there somewhere. 😜

Rainier Arms SBR Build - Geissele SMR MK4 - Arisaka Inline Scout Light Mount 300 Series Scalarworks OPS Front Fixed Sight magpul vertical grip Surefire SR07

Here’s another angle of the business end on the new Rainier Arms SBR build. From this angle you can now see how accessible the Superlative Arms Piston Kit gas block is under the rail. This isn’t like many piston kits were you have one or two settings. Its more like a Piston Kit that has a built in fully adjustable gas block so you can really tune it in.

Rainier Arms SBR Build - Superlative Arms - Rainier Arms - Geissele - Scalarworks - Magpul = Arisaka Rainier Arms

This next shot gives you a better idea of how tidy things are on this build. It’s got everything I need and nothing I don’t. The Scalarworks OPS fixed sights and mount for the Aimpoint T1 are absolutely amazing. 

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms = cmc triggers = scalarworks = aimpoint t1 - juggernaut tactical - magpul - geissele

And here it is. Hope you guys enjoyed a pretty detailed look at my new Rainier Arms SBR build. In the end, this SBR turned out even better than I had pictured it but the initial imagination and passion to create another gun is what got it all started. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to just slap together the first complete rifle you can. Take your time with your next build, map it out, think about what would make you smile every time you see it and then build that. 

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms - geissele - cmc triggers - magpul - scalarworks - griffin armament - surefire = superlative arms piston kit - aimpoint juggernaut tactical

Here’s the full run down of parts for this build. If you want to copy it, be my guest. Would make for a great AR Pistol build too.  

Already had a chance to get the gas dialed in on the piston kit and man this thing is smooth. Will be getting some range time this week with this gun getting it sighted in. Will let you guys know how it runs soon.
