High Quality Custom Uppers and Parts In-Stock at CIV Tactical

Posted on September 23rd, 2013 by ar15news

Last night I was doing my thing, looking around for stuff to share with you guys. I decided to check out the CIV Tactical website as I do quite often. He must have just received a shipment of parts because I was surprised to see that Dustin actually had stuff in-stock right now. His custom uppers have become very popular as he personally takes the time and care to fine tune the gas systems of each one to ensure they run flawlessly. He’s like an AR Doctor!

Another feature that all of the CIV Tactical uppers have is a Blueprinted Upper Receiver.  Dustin actually puts the receiver into a lathe and makes sure the receiver face is perfectly square which ensures the barrel extension lines up perfectly. As his website says, this is typically only done on precision rifles but has been shown to increase accuracy and reliability in an AR-15 as well. I personally have one of these upper receivers on a rifle and there is a noticeable difference in accuracy between it and some of my other rifles. Right now these are also available for purchase separately and include the forward assist and dust cover.

Also, the awesome CIV Tactical Flatline Muzzle Brakes are in-stock as well.

SNEAK PEEK!! New NorthTech Defense Billet AR-15 Upper Receiver

Posted on September 20th, 2013 by ar15news

NorthTech Defense and Defense Marketing Group today released a few pictures of the much anticipated NTD billet AR-15 upper receiver. I have an NTD rev3 billet lower and am looking forward to finishing it off with the matching upper. The photos below show it in the raw aluminum state but as far as I know they will only be offered with a black anodized coating. From talking with Dustin, the owner of NTD, I can tell you these will include the Dust Cover and a Titanium Forward Assist Assembly. Its nice to not have to also order an upper receiver parts kit and install it. At just $208 retail (you might find them cheaper) these will move very fast. I like how they put the logo and text on the opposite side from the lower as a nice touch. Just making an educated guess, I would watch RainierArms.com for the initial release of uppers which shouldn’t be that far out. ;) You can also check out the NorthTech Defense Facebook Page. Check out the pics below. We’ll be sure to let you all know as soon as they are available for purchase.

NEW!! Mega Arms AR-15 MKM (Mega KeyMod) Upper

Posted on September 19th, 2013 by ar15news

We’ve been hearing about the possibility of an AR-15 version of the Mega Arms MKM MATEN which is an awesome 2-piece .308 KeyMod upper and we now know those rumors are true. I was extremely excited to catch a glimpse of it about a week ago but couldn’t say anything. Now that Mega Arms has officially announced it I get to share it with you and this thing is absolutely amazing. 

The Mega Arms AR-15 MKM looks almost identical to its .308 counterpart with exception to a few differences in the receiver. Most AR-15 rail systems mount to some sort of barrel nut, be it the standard AR-15 barrel nut or a proprietary barrel nut. The MKM platform uses a modified billet upper receiver that the rail system attaches directly to creating one solid piece.

Some of the benefits of this system include a much stronger attachment interface between the rail and the upper, a very quick and easy way to change rail lengths and easy maintenance. Another benefit that is not so obvious is that there is no more need to time the barrel nut and no need for anti rotation tabs. The rail simply slides onto the upper itself and screws hold it in place.  Because the rail doesn’t just fit onto a round barrel nut there are no worries about the rail rotating during use and the 12 o’clock rails line up perfectly on their own.

The Mega Arms AR-15 MKM KeyMod upper will come in 7″, 9″, 12″ and 14″ KeyMod rail system lengths and range from $400 to $485 MSRP. The photo below shows a 14″ rail and just how awesome this setup looks. Unlike the MKM MATEN .308 version, the AR-15 MKM will work with any Milspec lower, not just a Mega Arms lower. This is awesome if you already have a lower that you want to build into a complete rifle. However, I highly recommend buying a Mega billet lower to go with it as it looks awesome.

From what I was told, the new Mega Arms AR-15 MKM KeyMod upper is coming very soon. As soon as it is officially released for purchase I will be sure to make an announcement here on AR15NEWS.com. Until then, if you want to check out additional pictures of the AR-15 MKM upper, be sure to “LIKE” the Mega Arms Facebook page. You can also keep an eye on MegaArms.com.

Need A New BCG? I Think I’ve Found BCG Heaven!

Posted on September 6th, 2013 by ar15news

So a while back I started hearing about a company called ICE Arms. At that time it seemed like everyone and their brother were trying to make BCG’s to jump in on the panic buying so I didn’t really pay any attention. Fast forward a few months and the scene has completely changed. Those who made a good name for themselves are still in business. The ones who were in it for the quick buck and had no interest in actually being a long term part of the firearms community are long gone. ICE Arms is one of the ones who now have a strong following because of their great customer service and a large selection of not just BCG’s but upper parts as well.

One of the things I noticed was that they offer a ton of BCG options. Not only do they have a Nickel Boron BCG or Phosphate BCG but they offer different bolt materials to suit your preference. You can also choose to buy just the bolt or just the carrier. And all of the prices are very reasonable. If you’re looking for a new BCG ICEArms.us is a great place to start looking.

But wait…there’s more! While you’re there, check out the rest of their upper parts. They have some really nice barrels in-stock and are coming out with a really cool Side Charging Piston Upper called NAMELESS. You can check these out HERE.
