NEW!! SI-Defense Releases Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set

Posted on October 30th, 2014 by ar15news

In the AR world there are lots of partially ambi receiver sets but that typically just means that they have an ambi bolt release lever. To me thats not really an ambi receiver because you’re still multiple other features that aren’t ambi. I know I’m obviously not the first to feel like that and I can guarantee you that is exactly what SI-Defense was thinking when they started designing their new Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set.

One of the first things you’ll notice is that both sides of the lower receiver look exactly the same. The brain trust at SI-Defense did this on purpose to ensure your body gets used to doing the same exact thing whether you’re shooting with your right or left hand. These mirrored features include an Ambi Mag Release, Ambi Index Finger Grooves and a complete Bolt Catch Assembly on both sides giving you a true Ambi Bolt Hold function which is absolutely priceless when clearing malfunctions (I know you’ve heard me preach about that before).

Upon further inspection you’ll also see that they have also included a Pivot Pin Spring Housing on both sides of the lower receiver. That’s right! This new receiver set even offers an ambi Pivot Pin and Takedown Pin system which is something I don’t remember ever seeing before. A couple of other neat features are the Quick Release Dust Cover Assembly and a Threaded Forward Assist Pin Hole.

SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 3SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 3

So as you can see, this is a very well thought out design that looks just as good. I’ve also heard there will be an AR-15 version of this available as well so keep an eye out for that. SI-Defense is currently taking pre-orders for this new Ambi .308 Billet Set. Head on over to their brand new website at www.SI-Defense.com or call 406-752-4253 to place your pre-order.

**The receiver set includes dust cover, ambi bolt catch, ambi mag release. Forward assist, takedown pins and ambi selector not included but are available for sale in the Parts and Accessories section of their web store.

An Updated Look At The Battle Arms Sub 4-Pound AR Project

Posted on September 10th, 2014 by ar15news

A while back I showed you guys a sneak peek at the OIP Lightweight (sub 4-pound) rifle that Battle Arms Development has been working on. At that time the OIP Rifle was in the very early prototype stages but just yesterday Battle Arms Development release a picture of Upper, Lower and Butt Stock that will be used on the new OIP Lightweight Rifle. The OIP Lightweight Rifle will be sold exclusively through Bentwood Gunsmithing. Battle Arms Development will be offering a slightly different version of the Lightweight Components for us DIY AR builders. For instance, according to Battle Arms Development, the Battle Arms version of the lower will have solid sides in the mag well but the recess pockets will be there. You can see the photo and details below. For more information regarding this new project be sure to follow the Battle Arms Development Facebook page

Battle Arms Development OIP Lightweight Rifle Components

Another sneak peek at the OIP Lightweight Upper, Lower, and Butt Stock in a special natural Type III hard anodize color. There are some natural fades from the anodizing process. The color also changes pending on the lighting condition and viewing angle from bronze to FDE to OD Green, Grey, etc. I think we will name it the Chameleon. Bentwood Gunsmithing is going to keep all the finish natural (no dyes) for the raw look.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lowers Now Available for Purchase

Posted on September 8th, 2014 by ar15news

Rainier Arms has officially released their new A-DAC Forged Lowers which means I will be buying one very soon. The A-DAC function is a right-hand bolt catch (integrated into the magazine release button). The A-DAC allows you to hold the magazine release button in (dropping the mag if one is inserted), pull the charging handle to the rear and lock the bolt back all at the same time. There are only a couple other lowers that offer this feature and the Rainier Arms lower is the newest and most affordable of them all.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I could care less about an ambi Bolt RELEASE. I want an ambi Bolt HOLD to help with increasing the speed of clearing malfunctions, etc. There really isn’t any other reason for you to manually hold the bolt open unless you’re clearing a malfunction or inspecting the weapon which in both cases you will want to remove the magazine. The A-DAC system is the perfect solution. Watch the following video that shows how the A-DAC system works.

The original Forged lower will still be available, if you don’t want or need this feature. The Mountain logo has also been added to the left side of the receiver.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1

Benefits:
- Removes six steps from the Manual of Arms when clearing a double feed malfunction.
– The device adds the ability to use the right hand to lock the bolt to the rear while still leaving you the option of using the standard left hand method.
– Greatly reduces the amount of time needed to clear a malfunction.
– Unlike all other devices there is no need to learn to find a new location for your trigger finger as one experienced with the weapon already instinctively makes contact with the magazine release button first to clear any remedial action malfunction.

Trouble free simple design:
- Can be field stripped with no tools.
– Only one additional part is required and is completely internal to the receiver.
– There are no screws to come loose.
– There is no weight added to the bolt catch that could cause it not to lock open on the last round like other devices which bolt on.
– Nothing to snag on clothes or other gear.

Safety:
- Virtually eliminates the possibility of the user’s finger unintentionally entering the trigger guard while locking the bolt to the rear.
– When used, makes it impossible to inadvertently lock back the bolt with a loaded magazine left in the receiver. This prevents the possibility of chambering a round in the event the rifle is bumped causing the bolt to drop.
– Nothing to accidentally trip the bolt release when reloading or clearing a malfunction as it is only a bolt catch.
– Allows you to keep a firm grip of fire control – making it much easier to keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction when locking the bolt to the rear.
– Nothing obstructing any portion of the trigger guard – preventing any issue with snagging a gloved hand.

The all new Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC lower is available for purchase now at www.RainierArms.com.
