BCM introduces the Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock

Posted on February 16th, 2017 by ar15news

Bravo Company Mfg just introduced a new version of one of my favorite AR stocks. The new Mod 0 SOPMOD stock is very similar to the awesome BCM GUNFIGHTER stock but features a larger cheek weld area and still retains the original features of the GUNFIGHTER stock such as the VBOS Tab, ambi QD sling mounts, etc. I just got one of these new stocks and can’t wait to snag a couple more. Check out the press release and images below. The new BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD stock is instock now at www.BravoCompanyUSA.com for just $58.

BCM Mod 0 Sopmod Stock 2

BCM introduces the Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock, a drop-in replacement stock for the M4 Carbine, built to be lighter and more durable than base issue equipment with an enhanced contour for an improved cheek weld.

Delivering a consistent and stable platform, without sacrificing the clean snag free design of the Mod 0 Minimalist Stock released in 2014, the BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock is a product of continued refinement based on end user feedback and close work with leading tactical and weapons manipulation instructors and the end users they prepare for going into harm’s way.

BCM Mod 0 Sopmod Stock 2

Both the BCMGUNFIGHTER™ Mod 0 SOPMOD and the Mod 0 Minimalist stocks feature a patented internal latch system*, a built-in buttpad, a VBOS(Vehicle Borne Operations Sling) Tab and both an ambidextrous QD interface port and web slot for sling interface.

BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock 4

Like all BCM rifles and BCMGUNFIGHTER accessories, the Mod 0 Stocks are designed and made in the USA with the lightest and most durable materials to ensure components that last a lifetime.

NEW!! Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring

Posted on January 31st, 2017 by ar15news

Armaspec introduced a few new products this year at SHOT Show but the one I know many people are super excited about is the new Stealth Recoil Spring. The Stealth Recoil Spring is a drop-in replacement for your AR15 buffer and buffer spring that eliminates the noise from the spring rubbing on the inside of the buffer tube and helps the rifle function quieter and smoother. They also incorporated a rubber o-ring on the face of the Stealth Recoil Spring that removes any metal on metal contact.

Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring 4Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring 1

The Stealth Recoil Spring is a self-contained multi-stage drop-in replacement for your standard buffer and spring. Designed to reduced felt recoil as well as keep the buffer spring from rubbing against the inner wall of the buffer tube. The buffer mass is designed to stay under constant tension against the bolt carrier and the O-ring on the head of the buffer mass prevents metal on metal contact. Pat. Pend.

The Stealth Recoil Spring comes in 5 variations.
– SRS-Carbine at about 3.3oz equivalent
– SRS-H at around 3.8oz equivalent
– SRS-H2 at around 4.7oz equivalent
– SRS-9 at around 5.3oz equivalent
– SRS-H3 at around 5.6oz equivalent

Another awesome thing about the new Stealth Recoil Spring is the price. Armaspec has kept the price to a very affordable $79. At that price, if they work as advertised, I’ll be using these in many builds going forward. These are showing out of stock now but sounds like they should be available for purchase very soon at www.Armaspec.com.

Rebel Arms M16 and Enhanced BCGs On Sale

Posted on January 11th, 2017 by ar15news

Rebel Arms has both of their awesome looking AR-15 BCGs on sale right now. They offer both a standard M16 style BCG and an Enhanced BCG, both featuring a Black Nitride finish and Rebel Arms “REBEL” logo. Below you’ll find a picture details on the two different BCGs. Not sure how you could go wrong, both look like great BCGs and Black Nitride is my preferred BCG finish.

Rebel Arms BCGs

M16 Nitride BCG: Priced at: $155.99 Sale price of: $136.99
Our high quality Nitride Bolt Carrier Group features the newest revolution in coating. Unlike phoshpated or parkerizing, this bolt carrier has a black nitrided surface that reduces the need to apply oil to the carrier that can attract dirt, dust, unburned powder, and carbon and lead to cycling failures.

The nitriding process creates an ultra-low friction coefficient to the surface. When you feel the surface of the carrier you will notice that it is much smoother to the touch than a standard bolt carrier.  It also means less heat generated by metal on metal contact and also provides for easier cleaning.

The process hardens the steel as well, which makes this carrier have an increased resistance to wear thereby increasing the life of of the component and increases the amount of shots you can run over the life of it. The Gas Key comes already side-staked properly to the carrier.

Carrier:
– 8620 Carrier
– 9310 heat Treated MPI Bolt
– Heat Treated
– Case Hardened
– Black Nitride Finish
– High Lubricity

Enhanced Nitride M16 BCG: Priced at: $181.99 Sale price of: $159.99
The enhanced bolt carrier is designed to reduce carrier tilt/cant during recoil and increasing reliability by strategically relocating key bearing surfaces. The enhanced carrier has fewer points of contact resulting in less friction area and the slight increase in carrier mass extends dwell time and ensures proper gas pressures for reliable extraction.
– Material: Case Hardened 8620 Steel
– Finish: Black Nitride. This advanced low friction coating minimizes the need for lubricants.
– Gas key: 4130 Steel, attached with Grade 8 hardware and properly staked into a milled “valley” to ensure proper positioning
– Ejection port area is milled with added material for more strength and rigidity
– Cam Pin: Hardened 4340 cam pin
– Firing Pin: Mil Spec firing pin made of 8740 steel, center-less ground and Hard Chrome coated

Bolt Assembly: The Bolt is “True” Mil Spec dimension and external surfaces are CNC ground after heat treat for a precision fit.
– Material: Case Hardened 9310 Steel.
– Finish: All Bolt components Shot Peened & Manganese Phosphate or Black Nitride
– Extractor: 4340 Steel, Manganese Phosphate coated
– Mil Spec Extractor Spring & O-Ring Combination
– MPI: Magnetic Particle Inspected
– HPT: High Pressure Test

**NEW** Cross Machine Tool UHPR MOD2 M-LOK Handguards

Posted on December 16th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’re an AR builder, you’d have to be hiding under a rock to not know who Cross Machine Tool is. They started out making billet lower receivers, then added billet uppers, innovative billet lowers with intregrated PDW stock systems, AR-10 receiver sets and muzzle brakes. Most recently they have introduced their UHPR line of handguards. First was the MOD1 which deleted all but the very front of the 12 o’clock picatinny rail. Today the new UHPR MOD2 M-LOK rails are available and they feature a full 12 o’clock picatinny rail section with M-LOK mounting slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions.

ETS Group Introduces 6 New .40 Cal Glock Mags

Posted on December 16th, 2016 by ar15news

ETS Group Glock mags have been a huge hit ever since their introduction last year. Part of the reason for their popularity is that they cost quite a bit less than an OEM Glock mag and the transparent body looks awesome too. I bought some of the 31rd 9mm Glock mags from ETS a while back to use in my QuarterCircle10 AR9 and they have been awesome. They function flawlessly and are the only mags I have that will reliably lock the bolt back on an empty mag. They currently offer eight different 9mm Glock magazines and now they have added six new .40 Cal Glock magazines. Those new mags are 9rd, 13rd, 16rd, Competition Legal 19rd, Competition Legal 24rd and a 31rd. 

ETS Group 40 Cal Glock Mags

These new ETS Group .40 Cal Glock Mags start at just $16.99 but ETS is offering an introductory discount code which will save you 15% off. Just use the code “ETS40” during checkout at www.ETSGroup.us.
