Badrock Tactical Making Waves In the High Quality AR Market

Posted on July 19th, 2014 by ar15news

Badrock Tactical is a newer AR manufacturer but that isn’t stopping them from already turning some heads. I recently had a chance to speak with the owner of Badrock Tactical and with a business model aimed at making high quality AR-15 and AR-10 components and complete rifles at an incredible price point, I felt it would be awesome to introduce them to those of you who read and follow AR15NEWS. 

Badrock Tactical recently teamed up with the talented people over at Juggernaut Tactical to start making their billet receivers sets and it has turned into an awesome partnership. Juggernaut Tactical is well known for their Rogue M1A Chassis plus some awesome 80% receivers and jigs. Badrock Tactical will use a similar set to the JT receivers for their rifles and they really make an extremely sweet looking build. The billet receiver sets are priced awesome as well at just $329 for AR-15 and $399 for AR-10 billet sets.

The builds they put together are nothing short of breathtaking. They have styles to fit just about any shooter, including for those who like a little bling. They’ve literally gone through each rifle they offer and upgraded everything possible including Ambi Bolt Catches from Phase 5, PWS Enhanced Buffer Tubes, JP Silent Capture Buffer Springs and either Timney or Geissle Trigger Systems with several hand guard options and price ranges starting in the $1,800 range including custom Cerakote finishes. They will also be working with Juggernaut Tactical to make “less enhanced” rifles to market that will be more in the $1,300 range but still feature mil spec internals, the same billet receiver set, free float rail system, etc.

In Short, Badrock Tactical is a company to keep an eye on. They have some great stuff coming in the near future and appear to know a thing or two about creating some great looking rifles. In case you were wondering, I didn’t get paid to do this article (never have and never will sell article space) nor did I feel that I had to write this article. I wanted to do it because they have something different about them that I really like. Hopefully you love learning about new companies like I do and I hope to be able to work with Badrock Tactical more in the future to bring you new products and deals, etc. Speaking of deals, I almost forgot that Badrock Tactical wanted to offer a special 10% discount code to our readers.

NEW!! AERO Precision .308 Forged Receivers

Posted on June 27th, 2014 by ar15news

If you’re a fan of AERO Precision like we are, you’re going to love what we have to tell you next. We’ve been hearing little bits and pieces about the possibility of AERO Precision releasing their own .308 AR receivers but nobody really knew when that would happen. That is until earlier this week when they released not just their own .308 AR receivers but their own custom forging that looks really awesome. Unlike most .308 AR components, AERO Precision was able to keep the cost to basically what you would pay for regular 5.56 AR receivers. The new AERO Precision .308 AR receivers are available separately or in a complete Upper and Lower set. If you’re thinking about building a .308 rifle, this is an awesome, cost effective option. I’m personally thinking about doing a sweet all AERO Precision build using this receiver set and their .308 barrel which I think would be sweet. We shall see. Pricing and links are listed below. GeT sOmE!!

The RA308™ weighs in at 8 lbs and 0.6 oz. It features our new Rainier Arms Switch™ Rail 14″.

We also redesigned our new Rainier Arms Compensator 308(RAC™) which offers enhanced recoil management and almost fully eliminates muzzle rise. We wanted to build our rifle by using Rainier Arms Ultramatch 16″ Stainless Steel Barrel. These barrels are the finest blank (Shilen Blank) contoured to our specifications for reliability and accuracy shooting.

Five New Billet Upper Versions from CMT Tactical

Posted on June 17th, 2014 by ar15news

CMT Tactical has been making some really nice billet upper and lower receivers for a while now. You might be thinking, “Yeah, everyone is making billet receivers now.” and you aren’t too far off. What’s setting CMT Tactical apart is their true dedication to quality and the fact that they are willing to develop additional variations of their receives to meet the needs of their customers and potential customers. Recently they introduced five, yes you read that correct F-I-V-E, new versions of their billet AR-15 upper receiver starting at just $128. I’ve listed these new uppers below. Two are in-stock now and the other three will be out next month. Check them out and see if any of them will work for your next build.

First up is the CMT Tactical UPUR-1A. This upper has all of the same features as the original UPUR-1 upper (forward assist, dust cover, 7075-T6 construction, etc) but now features an enlarged Ejection Port making it compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper is in-stock now!

Second is the CMT Tactical UPUR-2. The UPUR-2 is very similar to the standard CMT Tactical billet upper but they’ve removed the Forward Assist. It still has a Shell Deflector and a Dust Cover and is NOT compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

The third new upper is the CMT Tactical UPUR-3 billet upper. Basically take the UPUR-1A and remove the dust cover and forward assist. You now have a Slick Side billet AR-15 upper that will work great for any AR build but has the enlarged Ejection Port for 458 SOCOM builds. This upper is in-stock now!

620 CMT Tactical UPUR-3 billet upper

The CMT Tactical UPUR-3A is the fourth new upper from CMT Tactical and basically expands on the UPUR-3 upper. This version has a cutout for side charging BCG’s and large enough Ejection Port opening to be compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

620 CMT Tactical UPUR-3a billet upper

The fifth and final new upper is the CMT Tactical UPUR-4. This upper is a new Slick Side version that addresses the concerns many people have with Slick Side uppers and that is the lack of a Dust Cover to keep contaminants out of the upper. The new UPUR-4 has no Forward Assist or Shell Deflector but it does still let you use a Dust Cover which is a cool feature. As with most of these new uppers the Ejection Port has been slight enlarged to work with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

Quentin Defense is pretty well know for affordable, quality billet and forged receivers including some awesome lowers with different Military branch symbol roll marks. QD recently introduced some brand new products to their already awesome lineup of billet AR receivers including two brand new ambi lowers and a .308 Billet upper.

First is the new ambi billet lowers. They look like the standard QD billet but feature an Ambi Bolt Release. These are being offered in both 100% and 80% configurations. The 100%’s are anodized and look great. The 80% model is not anodized and needs to have the fire control pocket machined out but DOES include the ambi bolt release. I really like that QD added the ambi option especially to the 80% model as that is pretty rare in the 80% world.

At the beginning of the year I started telling people that this was going to be the year of the .308 AR. So far this year we’ve seen more .308 components pop up than ever before. Quentin Defense has just introduced a nice looking DPMS profile .308 Billet upper receiver. Definitely worth checking out if you’re planning a .308 build.
