The original Battle Arms Development Enhanced Bolt Catch, also known as the BAD-EBC, is a very popular aftermarket option for upgrading the Bolt Catch on an AR-15. Being that it was made from 8620 billet steel it also came with a $42 price tag. Battle Arms Development wanted to make a more affordable version of this popular item so they created the new BAD-EBC-IC. The “IC” stands for Investment Cast which is a much more budget conscious way of producing the Enhanced Bolt Catch.

After quite a long time out of stock, Ballistic Advantage 5.45×39 barrels are finally back in stock. 5.45×39 is the ammo that you usually shoot out of an AK-74 and for a long time was some of the cheapest centerfire rifle ammo around. If you’re like me you stocked up on it when you could and now need a good barrel to shoot it all. The Ballistic Advantage 5.45×39 barrels are some of the nicest you’ll find anywhere, are very accurate and are¬†machined from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel with a QPQ Corrosion Resistant Finish. Ballistic Advantage also includes a WOLF Extra Power Hammer Spring to ensure proper function. They also have 5.45×39 Bolts available for pre-order as well.

Pantheon Arms is well known for their awesome upgrades to the Dolos Quick Change Barrel System and now they’ve introduced a brand new product called the Kentri Short Buffer System for AR-15s that will work with both rifle caliber and pistol caliber builds. This¬†should be perfect for one of those super compact AR Pistol “Truck Gun” “Backpack Gun” Builds.

Dolos KENTRI AR15 Short Buffer System

The new Kentri Short Buffer System is just 3.5″ long and features a¬†floating guide rod to keep everything aligned in the buffer, doesn’t require a proprietary BCG, ¬†supports the SB Tactical Braces and Shockwave Blade and ¬†at just $55 is less than 1/3 the price of most other Short Buffer Systems on the market.¬†

So far, after a quick Google search, it looks like Vision Defense LLC (they’re the ones who tagged me on Instagram about this new product) is the only company to have these instock ¬†and listed on their website so you might want to check them out. They’re listed at $55.¬†

If you’ve followed AR15NEWS for any decent length of time you’ve probably noticed we build lots of ARs. Some times, as an AR builder, it’s easy to get in a rut and kind of build the same thing over and over again which gets boring. All it takes is a bit of imagination and planning and your next build can be the best one you’ve ever put together. This is the very case with my most recent build.¬†

Believe it or not I had SBR’d this Rainier Arms forged lower well over a year ago but had no idea what I wanted to do with it. Then it came to me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. From there it was just a matter of time before I had the parts in hand and ready to build.

Lets start out with a few closer shots. From this angle you can see the Rainier Arms ambi safety, Juggernaut Tactical ambi charging handle and Scalarworks OPS (On Point Sights) fixed rear sight.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 1 - Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Juggernaut Tactical Ambi Charging Handle - Rainier Arms Ambi Safety

As I mentioned above, this build got started as a Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC lower that I bought and Form 1’d just before the ATF41P effective date. I added a Rainier Arms¬†forged upper and ambi safety, CMC Triggers¬†Flat 3.5lb Trigger and LPK, Superlative Arms Piston Kit, Juggernaut Tactical¬†ambi charging handle, Geissele¬†MK4 rail and Scalarworks¬†OPS Fixed Sights and Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint¬†T1 and a SureFeed Magazines¬†20 Round mag.

Rainier Arms SBR Build 2 - CMC Triggers Flat Trigger Geissele SMR MK4 rail Scalarworks OPS Fixed Sights Aimpoint Micro T1 Rainier Arms A-DAC

Of course as a Rainier Arms SBR build I chose to use their¬†10.5″ .223 Wylde barrel. Covered it with a Geissele¬†MK4 rail, Arisaka Defense¬†300/IR Series Scout Light and Inline Scout Mount, SureFire SR07 switch, Scalarworks¬†OPS Fixed Front Sight, Magpul¬†vertical grip and Griffin Armament¬†Taper Mount Supresspr Mount. The Superlative Arms¬†Piston Kit gas block is under there somewhere. ūüėú

Here’s another angle of the business end on the new Rainier Arms¬†SBR build. From this angle you can now see how accessible the Superlative Arms¬†Piston Kit gas block is under the rail. This isn’t like many piston kits were you have one or two settings. Its more like a Piston Kit that has a built in fully adjustable gas block so you can really tune it in.

Rainier Arms SBR Build - Superlative Arms - Rainier Arms - Geissele - Scalarworks - Magpul = Arisaka Rainier Arms

This next shot gives you a better idea of how tidy things are on this build. It’s got everything I need and nothing I don’t. The Scalarworks¬†OPS fixed sights and mount for the Aimpoint¬†T1 are absolutely amazing.¬†

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms = cmc triggers = scalarworks = aimpoint t1 - juggernaut tactical - magpul - geissele

And here it is. Hope you guys enjoyed a pretty detailed look at my new Rainier Arms¬†SBR build. In the end, this SBR turned out even better than I had pictured it but the initial imagination and passion to create another gun is what got it all started. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to just slap together the first complete rifle you can. Take your time with your next build, map it out, think about what would make you smile every time you see it and then build that.¬†

Rainier Arms SBR Build - rainier arms - geissele - cmc triggers - magpul - scalarworks - griffin armament - surefire = superlative arms piston kit - aimpoint juggernaut tactical

Here’s the full run down of parts for this build. If you want to copy it, be my guest. Would make for a great AR Pistol build too. ¬†

Already had a chance to get the gas dialed in on the piston kit and man this thing is smooth. Will be getting some range time this week with this gun getting it sighted in. Will let you guys know how it runs soon.
