Right now the AR market is kind of in a slump which sucks for retailers and manufactures but it is kind of awesome for us AR builders. This forces the manufacturers and retailers to bring out new products on a regular basis and those products have to offer more bang for the buck than when the market is at its peak. Case in point are these new QPQ barrels from AIM Surplus. All 3 of the barrels come with a QPQ finish for durability and corrosion resistance AND they include a low profile gas block that has already been drilled and pinned to the barrel which is the best way to make sure you’ve got a bomb proof setup. These are averrable in three different lengths which are 11.5″ Carbine, 16″ Mid and 18″ SPR Rifle and start at just $139.95. Check out the details below.

Its not often that I get a chance to publish a press release for a new product after actually having personal hands on experience with it. However, that is the case with the new Tyrant Designs HALO MiniVert ForeGrip. I have one, have it mounted on one of my SBRs and I can say, it’s awesome!

Tyrant CNC MiniVert 2

They obviously took a lot of time to get the shape of the all metal grip just perfect because it actually feels great in the hand. It also is easy to swap between MLOK and KeyMod by simply swapping out the screws and mounting hardware (you can save yourself $3 if you only want one set of hardware). Initially Rainier Arms got an exclusive intro price on the new HALO MiniVert ForeGrip but they sold out in just 24 hours. Thankfully Tyrant Designs, the maker of the new HALO MiniVert ForeGrip, has some left in stock at the special intro price which you can purchase at the link below. You can also read the new product press release below.

HALO MiniVert Grip (Black)

Tyrant Designs Logo

 

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips has just announced their release of the new HALO Series MiniVert, a vertical forward grip. With dimensions slightly smaller than the average AR-15 vert grip, the MiniVert sports an aggressive looking knurl and well thought out ergonomics. Coupled with the ability to fit directly to MLOK and Keymod rail systems this little grip packs a big punch. With an overall length just shy of 3 inches, Tyrant instead utilized an elongated lip at the bottom allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind or resting the finger the traditional way.

Tyrant Designs MiniVert ForeGrip 1

“With all of the positive feedback we have received from reviewers, dealers and social media, we are extremely excited to announce the official release of our HALO Series MiniVert! This concept took months of designing and field testing to make it as comfortable as possible while maintaining our well known aggressive styling. It truly is a vertical grip that can be used in all situations on various platforms to heighten the performance of the operator. We are pleased with how it came out and look forward to seeing it on AR’s everywhere. ”

A while back the guys at Andro Corp Industry ran a short term special on their M4QR 10.5″ Complete Railed Upper that was an awesome deal. At the time I missed it until it was too late. I decided to reach out to Jason at Andro Corp Industries to see if they would extend the deal for us and they were happy to do so. The M4QR complete upper includes an Milsepc Forged Upper complete with M4 Feed Ramps, Forward Assist and Dust Cover, M16 BCG, Charging Handle, 10.5″ 4150 CMV barrel with 1:7 Twist QPQ (Nitride) finish, 7″ 2-piece quad rail, F Marked FSB and A2 Flash Hider. All uppers are test fired prior to shipping to ensure a properly functioning upper. This would be an absolutely awesome start to an inexpensive SBR or AR Pistol build.

Saw this sale on Instagram this morning and thought it would be great to share with you guys. One of my favorite things to stock up on is 22lr ammo because I have a few 22lr rifles and handguns that I use to shoot and hunt with the kids. I bought a few thousand rounds of GEMTECH .22lr Subsonic Ammo with the assumption that it would only work with my suppressor but to my surprise their subsonic ammo runs flawlessly suppressed and UNSUPPRESSED in all of my semi auto rifles and handguns. Can’t guarantee it will in yours but I love this stuff. All GEMTECH .22lr ammo is on sale for 22% off and they’ve also reduced the price of the GEMTECH Blast Jacket down to $149.99. Better hurry though because they go back to normal pricing at 9am MST tomorrow (3/31/17).

GEMTECH Flash Sale

*24 HOUR FLASH SALE*

This is the first time we have ever discounted .22 lr ammo and we’re doing it at 22% off for 24 hours only! We’ve temporarily reduced the price of our Blast Jacket from $195 to $149.99 for 24 hours only!

The .22 ammo is optimized for suppressor usage. We put together a heavier bullet, a cleaner powder, a premium lube on the lead round nose projectile gave us consistent velocities and harder hitting performance at subsonic, suppressor-friendly speed.

The GEMTECH Blast Jacket is one of our best-selling accessories that mounts on ALL existing GEMTECH Quickmounts. The Blast Jacket throws the muzzle blast forward away from other shooters on the line and prevents the huge dust cloud we all experience when shooting in the prone. We made this out of pure titanium so it only weighs 3.5oz. and the stainless spring is capable of a million compressions, built to last. It keeps short guns short at 2.55″ overall and is a great addition to anyone’s load out.

**Press Release**

Griffin Armament is proud to announce the “Make Silencers Great Again Promotion” Effective immediately every silencer* shipping from Griffin’s manufacturing floor to its Dealers and Distributors will contain two $100 coupons which can be mailed to Griffins address in exchange for store credit on their website.  Boxes containing coupons will be sealed with a gold label.

Make Silencers Great Again Promotion Griffin Armament

“Sales are down unnecessarily”, said Evan Green business development manager at Griffin Armament. “When the markets have been rallying and jobs are being produced, consumer misunderstanding of the legislative process and the Hearing Protection Act, is hurting an otherwise stable industry. Many people who want to buy are sitting on discretionary spending in the hopes that HPA will soon pass. The entire industry has come to a very similar conclusion that it will be quite a while until HPA is able to pass if at all despite almost unanimous support. People not buying right now is only further delaying them from enjoying silencers. It just doesn’t make any sense and this shouldn’t have happened.  Unfortunately a lot of miss information was flying around and nobody in the industry was trying to educate consumers on how long it actually takes to get a bill to pass, what percentage of bills pass, that the legislative process usually takes hundreds of days etc. This bill in some form has been presented to congress since 2015 and this congressional session is closing in a few months, so it looks like it will be rolling to another year.  Griffin is just as hopeful as everyone else for the HPA. However having a realistic viewpoint on it is critical to the survival of the silencer industry and the Americans who work hard to move it forward.  The ‘Make Silencers Great Again’ promotion is the most we can do as a company to try to encourage spending right now.” Evan continued. “It’s honestly an amazing time to be a buyer.  I remember when I was younger and was spending my money on an OPS INC can and promotions didn’t exist in the market. You could barely even get a dealer to handle the sale for you. Muzzle devices had to be purchased separately from the silencer, etc. I remember having to help my local class 3 dealer to understand the paperwork because he did so few transactions. But times have changed and there are plenty of dealers on the market selling products at great prices and walking the customer through the purchase quickly while keeping them informed. This program is also a great way to let consumers know that we appreciate them, we’ve been wanting to so something like this for a while.”

Midwest Industries just announced their new Blast Can muzzle device and I’ve got to say, it looks pretty nice. It is 1.2″ wide and appears to be somewhere around 3″ long. The 1.2″ outside diameter means it will fit underneath a large number of rail systems which is a very popular setup. The fluting along the sides gives it a nicer look as well. The other nice part is that everyone should be able to afford one with an MSPR at just $34.95.

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 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
