New Frontier Armory is always pumping out awesome new products so it was no surprise to see their new Extra Heavy Blowback 8-Ounce Buffer pop up on their Facebook page. You might be asking…”What is a Blowback Buffer and why does it need to weigh a whopping 8-ounces?”. Well, it all has to do with Pistol Caliber AR’s. 

Instead of using a gas system like a Direct Impingement AR to cycle the weapon, most Pistol Caliber AR’s (9mm, .40, .357 Sig, .45, etc) all use Blowback Operation. With a Blowback system their is a ton of energy throwing that BCG back and unless you do something to slow it down, it creates more felt recoil and it can tear things apart or cause excess wear. With Blowback ARs there is no Gas Block to adjust so your only option is to adjust the buffer weight. In comes the Extra Heavy 8-ounce Blowback Buffer from New Frontier Armory. 

8-Oz-Buffer-02

In my personal 9mm build I am running a 5.3 ounce H3 buffer. There is still more felt recoil than there needs to be but there aren’t too many buffer options out there that weigh more than the H3 buffer. NFA’s 8oz Blowback Buffer is made of solid Stainless Steel with an overall length of 4″ and would be a great next step in slowing down the BCG so its not slamming back so hard. It’s priced right too at just $39.99.

So, if you’re looking to smooth out your Pistol Caliber AR, the The New Frontier Armory Extra Heavy 8oz Blowback Buffer is definitely an option to look into. You can check them out at www.NewFrontierArmory.com.

Found Some 80 Percent Lowers

Posted on June 27th, 2016 by ar15news

About 2 weeks ago I ordered some Cerro Forge 80 Percent lower receivers from a company called Right To Bear Arms and Supply. With the uncertainty of future gun legislation, 80% lowers are a great item to have on hand but are super hard to find in-stock. The 80% lowers not only shipped the next day but they showed up at my house just a few days later. I had never purchased anything from them before but after an outstanding experience I am putting them on my “Will do business with again” list. Unfortunately, as soon as I went to write up a quick post about my experience and tell you where to get some 80% lowers…they were sold out. However, they just got a re-stock and now have Cerro Forge 80% lower receivers in-stock again and they are just $49.99 a piece. 

80 percent cerro forge lower

The 80% AR-15 Lower Receiver is NOT an FFL item. These units are forged by Cerro, which produces the forgings for companies such as Colt, Spikes Tactical Daniel Defense, DPMS and other major manufacturers. No FFL is required for transfer and the only machining needed is to finish out the trigger and safety well on the lower. The ATF classifies these units as non-firearms. No registration required. These units are “finished in the white”, tumbled and are ready for either Anodizing or Cerakote finishing.

80% Lower Specs:

  • 80% Machined (Just needs trigger and safety well machined) 
  • 7075 Aluminum
  • T6 Heat Treated
  • Magwells are flared and broached.
  • Cerro Forge (KeyHole)

If you’re looking for a great deal on 80% lowers from a trustworthy source, head on over to www.RightToBear.com and snag a few of these before they are sold out again.

NEW! Next Level Armament NLX450 Elite / 450 Bushmaster Rifle

Posted on June 25th, 2016 by ar15news

In the state of Michigan, there are restrictions as to where you can and can not hunt with a rifle. There’s a line that stretches across the state and if you live below the line you can not hunt Deer or anything else with a rifle unless it is a .35 caliber or larger rifle loaded with straight-walled cartridges with a minimum case length of 1.16 inches and a maximum case length of 1.80 inches. Unless you own a rifle that meets those criteria you’re basically left with Shotguns, Muzzleloaders and Bow/Crossbows as your hunting options. Thankfully a local Michigan based AR-15 manufacturer, Next Level Armament, has an AR-15 that meets the criteria and packs a massive punch too…the Next Level Armament NLX450 Elite / 450 Bushmaster Rifle!

The “Stag” will Include the NLA 450 Muzzle Device, NLA Gas Block, Scythe Ambi Charge Handle, Elite Upper and Lower, Choice of Bolt Carrier, DLC/NIB/NT, UTG Pro Free Float (made in USA), Magpul MOE butt stock, Tromix Barrel with Matching Bolt, NLA extended Mag Release and LBE LPK. As with all our models, many upgrades and changes can be made. Sprinco Red Spring is used in the buffer assy to help tone down the Thump 🙂

Whether you are a hunter here in Michigan or just looking for a heavy hitting rifle, this NLX450 Bushmaster is pretty sick. Pre-orders have started now at just $1250 for the complete unit. Next Level Armament delivers another fully upgraded AR platform with all the options for the cost of many entry level units. You can email Dave@nextlevelmfg.com to reserve yours.

CMC Triggers Complete LPK (Lower Parts Kit)

Posted on June 21st, 2016 by ar15news

Jen, the General Manager of CMC Triggers, let loose a little secret on her Instagram the other day. On 7/15/16, CMC Triggers will begin offering complete LPKs with your choice of either a Curved or Flat drop-in trigger. I have a bunch of mil-spec trigger groups laying around because I usually upgrade my AR trigger. Being able to just buy the trigger and LPK will be nice as it should equate to a lower overall cost (only one shipping charge, no extra trigger group, etc). I’ll reach out for more information on the CMC Triggers Complete LPK and update you guys as they get closer to releasing them.
