KAK Industry Adds 3 New 9mm Barrels To Their Value Line

Posted on February 6th, 2016 by ar15news

KAK Industry does a ton of OEM work for other companies, especially a lot of barrels. Since they’re already machining tons of barrels they decided to start offering a value line of barrels last year which has grown into a very large selection of available barrels. These barrels all have a Melonite finish inside and out are very well made. These are the type of barrels you would see on shelves for $175-200 all day long but because KAK Industry makes these themselves the price is usually closer to $100 and some times less. With the growing popularity of Pistol Caliber ARs, specifically 9mm, it was only a matter of time that KAK added 9mm barrels to the list.

KAK Industry just released 3 new 9mm barrels. These barrels are a 4″, 8″ and 16″. All have a Melonite finish, 1/2×36 threads and 1:10 Twist. As with pretty much all 9mm AR barrels, these are all Straight Blowback which means they do not require a Gas Block or Gas Tube. One of the most impressive points is that they start at just $80. Links and pics below.

Last month we helped introduced the new Centurion Arms CMR rails with KeyMod or M-LOK attachment systems. This was something Centurion Arms customers have been asking for for a long time and now they can get it. Centurion Arms promised a pre-order in early February and they weren’t messing around. Starting today, you can now pre-order a 13″ or 15″ CMR rail with your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, they are also offering them at an introductory price of $195 for 13″ and $200 for the 15″.

Head on over to www.CenturionArms.com and get your order in for these really awesome rails. They should be shipping by the end of the month.

KAK Industry – LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer

Posted on January 26th, 2016 by ar15news

I have a few LR-308 rifles, two of which I have personally built myself. Both of those rifles I wanted to run a standard AR-15 stock and buffer tube on instead of say a .308 PRS. Not only is it nice to have the option to swap stocks with any of my other ARs or to use stocks such as the Magpul UBR but the AR-15 buffer tube is slightly shorter than the AR-10 buffer tube making it a bit more compact. I’ve shown this setup to tons of people and they love it. To do this I’ve used what is called an LR-308 Carbine Buffer and the LR-308 Carbine Spring.

LR-308 Carbine Buffer in RifleMy FALKOR Defense .308 16″ with a normal AR-15 UBR stock installed.

So far so good but I’ve been thinking about increasing the buffer weight to reduce felt recoil a bit and just make it even smoother. My current buffers weigh in at just 3.8 ounces which is pretty light. Most LR-308 Heavy Buffers are close to $100 so last night, when KAK Industry told me about there new LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer, I was all ears. 

As you may already know, KAK Industry makes all of their parts in house so they not only make sure their Quality Control is top notch but also they can pass on the savings to their customers. The new KAK LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer is made from superior 304 grade stainless steel for durability, hardness, and longevity vs the typical 303 grade stainless steel. They also have solid tungsten cores and weigh 5.5 ounces. Whats even more impressive is that they are selling them at just $55 each. At that price it is a no-brainer to upgrade to the heavy buffer.

These are available for purchase now. I literally just ordered some other parts from KAK Industry last night and should have added a couple of these too. If you’ve got an 308 AR or are in the process of building one, and want to run an AR-15 buffer tube on it, my suggestion is to go with this LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer and an LR-308 Carbine Buffer Spring. KAK Industry is an awesome small business to show some support to.

Centurion Arms Adds KeyMod and M-LOK to the CMR Lineup

Posted on January 21st, 2016 by ar15news

This week at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Centurion Arms sneakily introduced two new versions of their extremely popular CMR rail in the Magpul and BattleComp booths. The CMR rail is a very slim, rugged, tubular rail. It features threaded holes every couple of inches to bolt the CMR rail covers, hand stops, etc to but most accessories made by other companies are designed to attach to 1913 quad rails, KeyMod rails or M-LOK rails. Now you can get the CMR in your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK as well.

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

Now that you can choose KeyMod or M-LOK, it really opens up a whole new world of usable accessories you can attach to your CMR rail. I’ve got a ton of grips, light mounts, hand stops, rail sections, rail covers, etc. just waiting for an awesome rail like this. I immediately installed the CMR M-LOK rail on my CIV Tactical SPR build. The ability to add a picatinny rail for my bipod via M-LOK (or KeyMod for that matter) is quick and painless. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The overall profile of the new CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails is very similar to the original CMR and still features anti-rotation tabs. The barrel nut is also very similar, in fact the new rail will mount to an older CMR barrel nut, but Centurion Arms actually modified the new barrel nut to be able to tighten them using a standard AR-15 castle nut wrench. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The production model CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails will have QD Sling Mounts at the front and rear of the rail on each side just like the original (the ones in my photos were pre-production) and will be available in both 15″ (shown) and 13″ models.

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

MSRP on the new rails will run $240 for a 15″ and $230 for a 13″. Centurion Arms will start taking pre-orders at the beginning of February at an introductory price of just $200 for a 15″ or $195 for a 13″ and start shipping units around the end of February. Centurion Arms is an awesome company owned and operated by a retired Navy SEAL. Lets show them some support!

Gorilla Ammunition Releasing New Line of Self Defense Ammo

Posted on January 21st, 2016 by ar15news

I’m super excited about the new Silverback 300BLK subsonic ammo from Gorilla Ammunition. Many hunters feel the usual 300BLK subsonic isn’t that great of a round to hunt with but this stuff should fix that. Gorilla’s created 30oBLK subsonic ammo featuring solid copper CNC machined projectiles that will expand on impact where most 300BLK subsonic won’t. I’ve seen some ballistic gel test video and its very impressive. They also have 380ACP and 45ACP available in the Silverback lineup. Read the press release below.

PWS “Blem” Enhanced DI Bolt Carriers

Posted on January 15th, 2016 by ar15news

Got a spare bolt laying around that’s lonely for a carrier or maybe you just want to upgrade the standard BCG in your rifle? PWS (Primary Weapons Systems) has some of their Enhanced QPQ DI AR-15 Bolt Carriers in-stock that are basically used/blems. They were installed in rifles and have some wear marks but have been inspected, new gas key installed and are good to go. PWS complete DI BCGs go for around $249 but you can get a PWS DI Bolt Carrier for just $75. That’s not a bad price at all for the quality you’re getting. Keep in mind, this is just the Bolt Carrier, you will still need an AR-15 bolt to complete it.

Check out this pretty slick new lower from Vorn USA

Posted on January 4th, 2016 by ar15news

The other day I ran across these new lowers from Vorn USA. They are a forged lower receiver called the Lima 1 which features some sweet milling on the surface for weight reduction which looks really cool. I like that they did not machine all the way through which will help them maintain their strength and also keep dirt and dust out of the internals.

I couldn’t find a weight anywhere but as you can see in the photos below, they remove a decent amount of material. Not like an ounce or two is gonna break anyone’s back but ounces can add up. The lowers look pretty stinking sexy and for just $99 with your choice of Black Anodized or a number of different cerakote colors its not a bad deal either. They are also available in raw aluminum for those who want to do their own custom finish.

Get the look of billet, but with the strength of a forging.

These receivers have been strategically milled to reduce weight and give a custom look.

–  100% correct Mil spec dimensions
–  CNC Aerospace precision machining
–  Mil spec finish with smooth clean anodize coat

Vorn USA Lima 1 Lower 2Also available in raw aluminum

Now to be 100% up front, until this weekend I had never heard of Vorn USA and I have never handled their product but they are working with some other legit firearms industry companies and seem to be good to go. If you’re interested in the new Lima 1 lowers from Vorn USA, head on over to their website and check them out. I may have to pick up a few of these myself. 

**Edit:  Looks like they are back in-stock.**
