TacStrike Drop Steel Swinger On Sale This Week

Posted on August 18th, 2014 by ar15news

There’s nothing quite like shooting steel targets and hearing that audible “ping” when you hit it. One of the coolest targets I shoot on a regular basis is the Drop Steel Swinger steel target I bought from TacStrike awhile back. Its basically a crossbar with 2×2 inch pocket at each end and 5×5 inch steel plate that is suspended from the crossbar. As you shoot it the steel target swings back and forth which adds an interesting dimension to it. I got an email blast from TacStrike the other day letting me know the Drop Steel Swinger was this weeks sale item and is on sale for just $50. That’s 33% cheaper than what I paid for mine which is a really nice discount. You can also pick up an Arched Frame Target Carrier Base (shown in the pictures below) on sale for just $25 while you’re at it.

NEW!! Rainier Arms Enhanced Ambi Accessories Combo Kit

Posted on August 13th, 2014 by ar15news

I swear I had absolutely nothing to do with picking the components of the new Enhanced Ambi Accessories Combo Kit from Rainier Arms, but if you looked at some of my rifles you probably wouldn’t believe me. The components that make up this kit are some of the most popular accessories for AR-15 builds and not just because they are cool, these are high quality upgrades. The kit includes three accessories that I would say are absolutely the best in their field, the Rainier Arms RAPTOR ambi charging handle, the Battle Arms Development BAD-ASS ambi selector and the Norgon Ambi Catch magazine release. It also includes the Seekins Precision Enhanced Bolt Catch and Billet Mag Release. Instead of buying all of these accessories separately, you can purchase them all together and save yourself about $40 over the usual price. Check it out now at www.RainierArms.com.

Rainier Arms Ambi Accessory Kit

Rainier Arms Custom:
Introducing our Rainier Arms Enhanced Ambi Accessories Combo Kit. We have combined our Rainier Arms Raptor™, Norgon Ambi-Catch™, Battle Arms Development Ambidextrous Safety Selector, Seekins Precision Mag Release Button, and Seekins Precision Enhanced Bolt Catch.

Rainier Arms Raptor™ Ambi Charging Handle
Rainier Arms Raptor ambidextrous charging handle by AXTS. The Raptor is truly revolutionary in design & function. From rapid palm “blading” or finger thumb charges of the weapon, the motion is fluid & fast from either strong or support side. Made in the USA from aircraft grade 7075 aluminum and milspec anodized. Designed for AR15-556

Norgon Ambi Catch
The AMBI-CATCH(tm) is a patented “drop-in” replacement of the original magazine catch for M16A2 Rifles, M4 Carbines and other firearms that use an M16 type magazine. Our improved magazine catch eliminates magazine retention problems that are caused by the “issue” magazine catch. When installed, the Ambi-Catch(tm) also gives both right and left-handed shooters the flexibility to choose from several different magazine release methods.

Battle Arms Development – Ambi Safety Selector
Battle Arms Development – Ambidextrous Safety Selector (BAD-ASS) for the AR15 Style Rifles and the ArmaLite, Inc.’s AR10® (Semi Auto).

I totally missed this deal the other day so I apologize for not telling you about it sooner. Right now it seems like 9 out of 10 new AR builds are AR Pistols.

The outside of the bag has sections of loop material for attaching hook backed pouches like those from Orange Diamond Concealment, the Tactical Tailor Low-Vis line or other similar pouches from other manufacturers.

Grey Ghost Gear JED Bail Out Bag 1

Unlike other go-bags on the market, the Grey Ghost JED Bail Out Bag is designed to be fought from, without getting hung up on unnecessary ‘cool’ features that aren’t so cool if they get in the way in a firefight. Despite rumors to the contrary, the JED was not named for the Clampett patriarch (though we like Buddy Ebsen as much as the next guy). No, JED stands for Jim Erwin Developed – and you may rest assured that Erwin’s time working for JSOC helped him design a bada$$ bag.

Available for purchase now for a special introductory price at www.GreyGhostGear.com.

Smith & Bradley AR-15 Inspired Ambush Digital/Analog Watch

Posted on August 2nd, 2014 by ar15news

I’ve got to admit, I’ve always been a sucker for a nice watch, but I’m not talking about your super expensive, only wear 5 times a year type watches. I’m a sucker for a watch I can wear every day, all day and has some cool, useful features. That’s why I don’t own a ton of watches. Most watches are lacking in function, not durable enough for daily use and too expensive because of some brand name. Every once in a while I’ll run across a new watch that meets my requirements and I just have to have it, such as the new AR-15 Inspired watch called the Ambush Digital Analog Watch from Smith & Bradley.

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 1

Smith & Bradley is a well known watch maker that makes some unique watches. Their new Ambush Digital Analog watch is really cool, built for every day use and features some subtle touches that were inspired by my favorite rifle, the AR-15. The bezel is designed to look similar to a 1913 picatinny rail. The Hour Hand has a red dot on the end and the Minute Hand has a hole like an AR-15 rear sight aperture. Once every hour these two hands line up like a front and rear sight. But that’s not where the “coolness” stops.

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 2

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 4

The Ambush is a combination Analog and Digital watch that allows you to have have dual time zones, chronograph, alarm, 100 Meter WR and a built in Compass as well. The digital portion has a Blue backlight and the hour and minute hands move out of the way during the digital function so they don’t block any of the digital windows. During compass mode, the Minute Hand points to true North and the Hour Hand shows your current heading. You can watch the video below.

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 3

The Ambush is made of very high quality components and is very well thought out. The cool part is you can get in on these early like I am going to and save some money. Smith & Bradley have mastered the CrowdFunding marketing with 2 successful KickStarter campaigns already and a very good reputation for making an awesome watch. Just a few days into their current KickStarter campaign for the Ambush Digital Analog Watch and they are already 66% funded and will undoubtedly blow past their $40,000 goal quickly. By supporting the KickStarter campaign and getting in now you will save over $200 off of what will be the retail price once the campaign is over.

NEW!! San Tan Tactical Billet Upper – Introductory Offer

Posted on July 30th, 2014 by ar15news

I’ve owned a San Tan Tactical STT-15 billet lower for quite a while now and it is one of my favorite lowers I’ve ever owned. It features full ambi controls including a built in ambi mag release and looks awesome but its always been missing one thing…a San Tan Tactical billet upper! When San Tan Tactical announced they were designing a lightweight billet upper, everyone knew it was going to be a thing of beauty. Just today they officially released the first run of billet uppers and the machining and lightening cuts look amazing. It is machined to match perfectly with a San Tan Tactical billet lower but will look fantastic with any other mil spec dimension lower as well. This first run of uppers are being offered at a special introductory price as well at just $184.95 with FREE SHIPPING.

San Tan Tactical Bilet Upper 4 San Tan Tactical Bilet Upper 4San Tan Tactical Bilet Upper 4San Tan Tactical Bilet Upper 4

There are many different AR-15 upper receivers on the market today. When designing this one there were a few features that were addressed. It was created lighter, stronger, and all while looking good doing it. One distinguishing characteristic is the truss pockets. The truss design acts similar to a bridge that carries and distributes the stress across the entire platform verses putting all of the stress on the material right behind the threads of the receiver. It also in turn helps improve your accuracy. The new STT receiver also comes in at only 8.2 ounces. That’s lighter than some slick side uppers!

• Single billet 7075 -T651 aerospace grade aluminum
• Fully Assembled with forward assist
• Machined in T markings
• Interfaces with all AR15/M16/M4 weapons systems
• Mil Spec Type III class II hard coat anodized Black
• Only 8.9 Ounces
• Backed by STT’s unmatched lifetime warranty.
• Made in the USA! Small Made in USA flag

The first run of San Tan Tactical billet uppers are only available at www.REVOLVR.com.

You can purchase a matching billet lower for yourself new San Tan Tactical billet upper at www.SanTanTactical.com.

Special thanks to my buddy UWone77 for the photos of the upper. He gets his hands on stuff faster than anybody I know.

FREE Bravo Company BCG and BCM COMP with Purchase of Upper

Posted on July 28th, 2014 by ar15news

Not sure how long this has been going on but my buddy Richard just gave me a heads up that BCM (Bravo Company Mfg) has some pretty sweet incentives to buy a BCM Upper. As many of you are already aware, BCM make some of the most sought after rifles and uppers out there. However, the market is slow right now and lots of companies are getting creative to bring prospective buyers their way. Usually BCM uppers do not include a BCG or Charging Handle. Typically that is an extra couple hundred dollars that you have to spend but right now, ALL BCM uppers are on sale and will come with a FREE BCM M16 BCG. However, the sweet spot in the lineup is the 16″ uppers which will also come with an additional FREE upgrade to a BCM MOD 0 Compensator. Basically all you need to do is add a charging handle and you’re all set. With over 100 different upper options all on sale, take your pick over at www.BravoCompanyUSA.com.
