LANTAC USA has just released their new Product Brochure for 2015 which shows a snapshot of their current and coming soon products however I know they have many many more products that they would like to introduce this year too. I can tell you right now I have 2 Lantac Dragons that are just begging for the new BMD to be released and their new E-BCG is a must have and is already in the hands of customers with people raving about it. Other products such as the new UAR billet upper, SPADA rail, Dragon and DrAKon muzzle brakes we already know are out or on their way but I was surprised to see the addition of a 14.5″ Mid Length and 14.5″ Intermediate Length barrels which look to be really nice barrels.

SI-Defense Ambi 223/5.56 Receiver Sets

Posted on February 23rd, 2015 by ar15news

**Update: I may have gotten ahead of myself here. Apparently I mistook the “Related Products” section where they say Add To Cart as the Add To Cart for the coming soon 5.56 Ambi Sets. I will let you know as soon as these receivers are officially available for purchase.**

One of my favorite products that I’ve recently used in a build is the new SI-Defense Ambi .308 billet set. The Mirrored Ambi Controls are seriously the best thing since sliced bread. Of course as soon as they introduced the .308 billet set the #1 question was….when are you releasing the .223/5.56 set? Well, the wait is finally over! SI-Defense Full Ambi .223/5.56 billet sets are now available for purchase on the SI-Defense website. They feature the exact same Mirrored Ambi Controls that the .308 set which includes the same Bolt Catch / Release lever on both sides and the same Magazine Release button on both sides. Craziest part is the set costs less than many of the other billet receivers sets on the market that aren’t even ambi. Take a look at the pics and then head on over to www.SI-Defense.com to put in your order today.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 Glock Mag 9mm PDW and Receiver Sets

Posted on February 13th, 2015 by ar15news

Its hard to believe that we are already half way through the month of February but this year is just flying by. I’ve been trying to decide on a good time to introduce you guys to some new products from Angstadt Arms which are due out in April. With as fast as time seems to be flying, if I don’t do it now I might completely miss it. In a very short time, Angstadt Arms will be introducing their new UDP-9 9mm PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) and 9mm Receiver Sets.

angstadt arms 0940 receiver set

The UDP-9 is a 9mm Pistol AR that features the new receiver set which are truly beautiful looking. If you don’t like it in Pistol configuration you can easily submit a Form1 to the ATF to register it as an SBR and slap a stock on it. Probably the most important feature to me is the fact that they are fed by Glock magazines instead of Colt mags. Many people carry a Glock 9mm as their concealed carry option, including myself. Having a Primary and Secondary weapon that both use the same ammunition and feeding source could be a huge plus if its ever needed. With companies such as Magpul and ETS Group making 9mm Glock Mags,  will be more readily available and less expensive to purchase as well. You can read more about the Angstadt Arms UDP-9 9mm PDW below.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 9mm PDW
The UDP-9 redefines the pistol caliber carbine. Designed specifically for urban environments and close quarter combat, the UDP-9 is a compact, personal defense weapon chambered in 9mm and fed with GLOCK® magazines.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 PDW SBRUDP-9 PDW SBR with an LWRC ultra compact stock and Ergo quad rail

Its compact size makes it ideal for home defense, security detail, law enforcement and anywhere space is at a premium. With models available for both prepared citizens, law enforcement officers and military personnel, the UDP-9 is easily configurable for any application. Available spring of 2015. Patent Pending.

UDP-9 Features

  • 7075-T6 billet aluminum lower and upper receiver with a matte black hard-coat anodized finish

  • Flared magwell for faster reloads, integrated, oversized trigger guard and a threaded bolt catch screw

  • Last round bolt hold open on an empty magazine

  • Slick side upper receiver with appropriately sized ejection port and no froward assist or dust cover

  • 9mm bolt assembly for use with a standard AR-15 hammer. Compatible with both GLOCK and Colt 9mm AR-15’s

  • 6” 9mm barrel in chrome moly with a 1/10 twist, black phosphate finish and A2 style flash suppressor

  • B5 Systems pistol grip

  • ODIN Works 5.5” free float keymod hand guard with continuous top picatinny rail and mounting positions at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock.

  • Weight: Sub 5lbs

  • Length: 21″

I’m really excited about Angstadt Arms’ new UDP-9 PDW and Receiver Sets. I’ve been wanting to either buy or build a 9mm AR for a while now, especially one that uses Glock 9mm Magazines like I carry every day. Not sure if I will buy a receiver set or full UDP-9 PDW but odds are I’ll end up doing something with these when they come out.

From what I can tell pricing will be $479 for an upper and lower billet receiver set, $1,249 for the UDP-9mm PDW Pistol and $1,349 for a UDP-9mm PDW SBR. Look for them to be released some time in April 2015. We will be sure to announce to you guys when they are available as well.

For weeks…no months now, everyone has been asking “When can I buy that awesome CMT Tactical Ambi lower?”. Well, your wait is now over. Just yesterday CMT Tactical announced that they had opened sales for the new UHP15A ambi receiver.

I’ve had my set for a while now and they really work great. The bolt release works just as you imagine, press the lever and it releases the bolt. The mag release is gated to protect agains accidental mag release but can still be actuated by the flat of your trigger finger, etc.

As with all of the different billet receivers CMT Tactical makes, the fit, finish and overall quality of the UHP15A is top tier and features a completely “roll-pin-less” assembly. The UHP15A ambi lowers are now available for purchase as just the UHP15A ambi receiver alone or in Upper and Lower Combo sets and will soon be available through RainierArm.com and AimSurplus.com.

NEW!! Mega Arms Quad Rail Megalithic Upper

Posted on December 15th, 2014 by ar15news

The Mega Arms MTS or Megalithic Tactical System is a really cool one piece upper that replaced their popular “Monolithic” uppers that they used to make. When the Megalithic version was introduced there were two models, one KeyMod and one Quad Rail. For some time though it seemed that Mega Arms would not be producing the Quad Rail version due to the popularity of the KeyMod version. After tons of people requested that Mega Arms make the Quad Rail MTS upper they realized that there was enough demand for it to make that happen. Starting next week, Mega Arms will begin shipping their new Quad Rail MTS uppers and they look awesome.

All MTS uppers also come with a proprietary barrel nut and barrel nut wrench. If you’re looking for an ultra-rigid upper/rail setup, this is it. Check out the complete list of dealers at the link below. I’ll be waiting for RainierArms.com to get them personally.
