SMOS ARMS “Sugarpine Mine” 14″ Rails for $100

Posted on April 17th, 2015 by ar15news

SMOS ARMS, one of the best kept secrets of the firearms industry, is located very close to the current standoff between Sugarpine Mine and the BLM (Bureau of Land Management). Sugarpine Mine has been in operation since the 1870’s but recently received a “cease and desist” order from the BLM and many people are expecting this to be similar to the Bundy Ranch showdown. SMOS ARMS is offering the first production run of their new AR Handguard Kits as a limited edition 14 inch “Sugarpine Mine” rail for just $100. All proceeds will go to support the claim owners and the Oath Keepers who have set up camp to help protect the miners. To order a rail, send an email to chris@smosarms.com.

MILSPORT ARMS 80% Lower Receiver Intro Price – $49.95

Posted on April 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Rainier Arms is known for only selling the best of the best products. You won’t find anything other than above average quality items there. When I saw that they were selling the new MILSPORT ARMS 80% 7075-T6 lower receivers I checked with the guys at Rainier Arms and they were really excited to have access to these very high quality lowers. Many people mistake the idea of an 80% lower as “a way to save money” when in reality it has nothing to do with that. It’s all about providing a way for law abiding citizens to exercise their right to build a non-serialized firearm. They are not sold in as high of quantity so they typically cost a bit more. However, Rainier Arms is offering these at an introductory price. Normal MSRP will be $90 but right now they get to offer the first run of them for just $49.95. Details and purchase link are below. I’ve also put a link to what I personally have seen to be the best machining jig on the market that will help you finish any lower in about an hour with just a hand drill and a router with amazing results.

MILSPORT ARMS 80percent Lower 2

MILSPORT ARMS 80percent Lower 2

M.S.R.P $89.95

These 80% AR-15 Lower receivers are forged in the US and are machined to mil-spec tolerances. Build your next custom rifle using a quality machined Milsport lower that are proven and tested.

Features:
–  Radius are machined and blended
–  7075-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum
–  Mil-Spec Precision Machining
–  Flared Magwell
–  Front magwell is textured for grip enhancement
–  No FFL Required
–  Made in the USA

The operations left to be completed are as follows:
–  fire control well
–  trigger pin hole
–  hammer pin
–  trigger hole
–  safety selector hole

This is a not an FFL item. This is not a complete receiver and still requires machining to assemble a working firearm.

The MILSPORT ARMS 80% Lower Receiver can be purchased for a limited time at just $49.95. http://www.rainierarms.com/milsport-ar-15-80-lower-receiver-raw

If you are looking for hands down the best machining jig out there, the Universal EASY JIG from 80 Percent Arms is it! http://www.80percentarms.com/collections/lower-jigs/products/80-ar-15-easy-jig

Many of us are what our friends at Jerking The Trigger refer to as an “AR Pistolero”. Meaning we have one…or more…AR Pistols in our collection of Firearms. AR Pistols started gaining in popularity when Sig Sauer introduced the SB15 Arm Brace because everyone saw the “possibilities” that it represented. It wasn’t until the ATF gave us their approval (which has since been rescinded, not sure why we even asked for permission) to fire an AR Pistol equipped with an SB15 Arm Brace from the shoulder that their popularity shot through the roof. The SB15 was and still is pretty difficult to install, bulky, heavy and most of all, expensive. Recently KAK Industry secured the distribution rights to the new Shockwave Blade AR Pistol Stabilizer which addresses all of those issues many people had with the SB15. They have also produced a new AR Pistol Buffer Tube called the Shockwave that is designed to work flawlessly with the Blade. We’ve received a kit to try out so below you’ll see pictures of the install and a comparison between the SB15 and Blade kits.

THE KIT AND INSTALLATION

KAK Industry sells all of the new Shockwave components separately and as a Shockwave Package complete kit, which is what we received. The kit includes the new Shockwave AR Pistol Buffer Tube, Castle Nut, End Plate, Buffer, Buffer Spring, the Blade stabilizer and a copy of the Blade approval letter from the ATF. 

KAK Shockwave Blade 1

Many AR Pistol buffer tubes just simply tighten down without the use of Castle Nut. The Shockwave Buffer Tube was designed to use any mil spec End Plate and a Castle Nut like your traditional AR. This gives you the most solid lockup and allows you to stake the castle nut in place.

KAK Shockwave Blade 1

As you can see in the picture below, the Shockwave AR Pistol Buffer Tube that KAK Industry designed was made with 12 dimples on the bottom (6 o’clock) of the tube. These dimples allow you to adjust the Blade stabilizer to any of the 12 spots and lock it in place using the set screw retention system.

KAK Shockwave Blade 1

To lock the Blade in place, find the desired length of pull, turn the AR Pistol upside down and line the set screw channel over the corresponding dimple on the buffer tube, insert the set screw and hand tighten. Once the set screw is in place, the Blade cannot slide forward or back and cannot spin on the tube like the SB15 has been known to do.

KAK Shockwave Blade 1

That’s really all there is to installing the KAK Shockwave Kit and Blade. As you can see it looks great on my 7.5″ 300BLK AR Pistol. I assumed there would be some play between the Blade stabilizer and the Shockwave buffer tube but with the use of the set screw there seriously is ZERO movement when I try to wiggle it or spin it. Its pretty impressive. 

KAK Shockwave Blade 1

THE BLADE VS THE SB15

You’re probably like me and want to see how the Blade setup compares to an SB15 setup so I went ahead and did that for us. 

WEIGHT: The Blade is made of a hard polymer like many AR accessories and is much lighter than the SB15. Combine that with the weight savings of using the new Shockwave Tube over using the popular Super Sig Tube and you’re over a half pound lighter already.

–  KAK Shockwave Buffer Tube:  4.6 ounces
–  Blade AR Pistol Stabilizer:  5 ounces
–  Combined weight:  9.6 ounces

–  KAK Super Sig Tube:  6.3 ounces
–  SIG SB15 Arm Brace:  12.1 ounces
–  Combined weight:  18.4 ounces

ADJUSTMENTS: The Sig SB15 can slide forward and back on a buffer tube but is not as solid the further back you position it. Many companies have tried to address that issue by making different buffer tubes that are longer like the Super Sig Tube (shown below). The Blade and Shockwave Tube however can be adjusted all the way forward towards the receiver for a super compact setup and adjusted all the way back to the last set screw position without compromising its solid lockup and all with the same buffer tube.

KAK Blade Vs SB15 1

SIZE: As we mentioned earlier, the SB15 was always kind of bulky and awkward. The Blade is the exact opposite of that. It is not only light weight but it is compact. If you look at the pictures below you will see a good comparison and that SB15 is much wider than the Blade.

KAK Blade Vs SB15 2

KAK Blade Vs SB15 3

Overall, my initial impression of the KAK Shockwave Kit and Blade AR Stabilizer is very positive. As we all know, the recent ATF decision on how you are allowed to fire an AR Pistol  has made some people less interested in building an AR Pistol. I can’t recommend shoulder firing an AR Pistol but I can recommend “There’s 1/8 of an inch between the stock and my shoulder” and “Don’t shoot with any ATF Agents”. :) While I totally agree that there’s nothing quite like owning an actual SBR, there are plenty of good reasons to own an AR Pistol other than to shoulder fire it such as transportation across state lines, carrying loaded in your vehicle in most states with your CCW, avoiding registration with the government as well some states do not allow you to own an SBR.

You probably think I forgot about one of the issues mentioned above with the Sig SB15 setup….the PRICE! As I already mentioned, KAK Industry sells these parts separately or as a kit. The KAK Shockwave Kit sells for just $95 which is less than you’ll pay for an SB15 brace by itself with no buffer tube kit.

Damage Industries NRA Show Sale

Looking for a more cost effective alternative to the Sig SB15 Arm Brace for your AR Pistol? Check out the the new KAK Industry “Shockwave” Pistol Buffer Tube which is designed to perfectly interface with the new Shockwave Blade Pistol Stabilizer. The buffer tube features 12 dimples that interact with the Blade’s “anti-rotation / anti-thrust” set screw to adjust position for comfort as well as keeps the Blade from spinning on the buffer tube. Sounds like a great setup and at just $95 for the complete kit (about half the price of a Sig SB15 Arm Brace and Buffer Tube Kit) its a great deal too. Purchases of the complete KAK/Shockwave Kit or the individual parts can be made at www.KAKIndustry.com. Dealer inquiry information  is at the bottom of the press release.

Oxnard, CA (April 6, 2015)—KAK Industry, a leader in firearms component manufacturing, announces that is has secured the exclusive distribution rights to Shockwave Technologies’ line of Blade pistol stabilizers. KAK also reveals that it has developed a custom buffer tube for the Blade.

KAK Shockwave Blade Pistol Buffer Tube Kit 1

The class 3 hard-anodized tube features 12 length-adjustment settings. Its anti-rotation and anti-thrust design mean that the Blade stays put without sliding forward or spinning. The tube is flush with rear of Blade when it’s installed fully forward. When installed fully out, the assembly is incredibly rigid.

KAK Shockwave Blade Pistol Buffer Tube Kit 2

Being of the castle nut design, the KAK Shockwave tube accepts all carbine buffer systems, mil-spec receiver endplates, and aftermarket endplates. Kurt Kosman, president of KAK Industry, remarked, “Our two innovative companies have combined efforts to bring a higher-quality, easier-to-use, more-affordable pistol stabilizing system to the market.”

“Teaming up with KAK Industry is a smart step for our small company,” stated Marty Ewer, owner of Shockwave. “We have a product that is an immediate hit with anybody who sees it. KAK is well-respected in the industry for its quality products and excellent customer service. And they have the resources to really catapult the Blade into the industry spotlight—pairing it with their KAK Shockwave tube and getting the system in front of virtually everybody through its rapidly expanding dealer network.”

KAK Industry will retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and package deals online as well as provide wholesale pricing to Web-based resellers and brick-and-mortar shops. Dealers interested in retailing the Blade should contact KAK Industry through their website (www.kakindustry.com) or by phone at 805-981-4734. Shockwave will also retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and kits through its website and other Internet channels. “Our goal is to make the Blade pistol stabilizer and KAK Shockwave tube 2015’s must-have accessories,” added Kosman. For more information, contact KAK Industry at 805-981-4734 or Shockwave Technologies at 801-815-5178.

Battle Arms Development has just introduced the newest version of their SaberTube and Lightweight Butt Stock combo which uses an included QD End Plate.

This new version has been redesigned to allow the use of the included QD End Plate and will work on any normal AR-15 lower receiver. This kit includes the SaberTube, BAD-LBS (Lightweight Butt Stock) and a CNC Machined 7075T6 QD End Plate and is available for one week at an Intro Price of $159.95 only at www.REVOLVR.com.

NEW!! Damage Industries Muzzle Projectors

Posted on April 2nd, 2015 by ar15news

“Muzzle Projectors”, “Blast Diverters”, “Concussion Redirectors”, etc are far from new to the AR market place. The fact is they are everywhere and for good reason…they work great. Some are straight up muzzle devices whose sole job is to redirect concussion and blast forward of the muzzle, while others are a combination of a muzzle brake/compensator that allows you to attach a sleeve of some sort to it. The later is the way that many manufacturers are going as you get the best of both worlds, functioning as a brake/comp under normal use but quick attach of a concussion redirector when needed.

Damage Industries has just introduced their own models that consist of a compensator muzzle device with a threaded collar to which you can thread on your choice of either a solid sleeve or a ported sleeve (shown in the pictures). One of the features that I like most about Damage Industries’ Muzzle Projector is that it can be tightened down with any standard AR-15 barrel nut wrench instead of trying to do it by hand or with a strap wrench. These can also be pinned in place. Another nice thing is that it only costs a total of $70 between the muzzle device and sleeve. Unfortunately they are not all in-stock at the moment so keep checking their muzzle device page at www.DamageIndustriesLLC.com.

First look at our new muzzle projectors!
These will be offered as both a compensator and a brake.
Available in 1/2 x 28, 5/8 x 24, and 14-1 LH!
The projector sleeves will fit any of the thread pitches and are available as a solid sleeve or ported dissipator (pictured).
New features include: Ability to install with a standard barrel nut wrench, and the ability to pin it in place.
Made in USA from 4140 steel with a manganese phosphate finish.
Weight ~8oz: Dissipator & Brake combined, ~9oz: Solid Sleeve & Brake combined
