The only difference between this Gen1 set and the Gen2 set they currently offer is that the selector stops are machined in instead of screwed in….oh and that the price is just $350 instead of $500. This is a great opportunity to start your next build off with an awesome receiver set that will set your rifle apart from most others out there. Check out the details and pics below.

Cross Machine Tool Phosphate, Nitride and NiB M16 BCGs

Posted on July 20th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve seen a lot of “random” price bumps lately one products including BCGs, magazines, etc. so any time I can I try to support companies that are trying to keep pricing normal even during times where stuff is moving a lot faster than it has been. My friends at Cross Machine Tool didn’t tell me this but I just saw that they got a restock on their very nice M16 BCGs in Phosphate, Nitride and Nickel Boron finishes. On top of offering them at a great price they are also offering Free Shipping. Not sure how long these will be in-stock so hurry up and snag one for your next build.

Glock Ambi Mag Release Designed for Right Handed Shooters

Posted on July 18th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve always shot my Glocks a lot but ever since I built my Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR I’ve been shooting them even more. Recently I had the opportunity to add the Rainier Arms MARS (Magazine Advanced Release System) ambi mag release in my G17. If you’re thinking….”I shoot right handed so I don’t need an ambi mag release” keep reading.

Rainier Arms MARS ambi mag release glock 1

Rainier Arms MARS ambi mag release glock

Typically ambi controls are designed to benefit left hand shooters but this ambi mag release was actually designed to help right hand shooters. On a Glock, many right handed shooters have to break their grip to reach their thumb far enough to activate the standard mag release consistently. Left handed Glock shooters typically use their Index or Middle finger to use the mag release which is actually better as it does not require that you change your grip on the gun.

The MARS fixes this by adding an ambi mag release on the right side so right handed shooters can now use their Index or Middle finger to release the magazine. They have also extended the mag release button on the left side making it even easier for left handed shooters to access with their Index or Middle finger.

Whether you shoot predominantly Left OR Right hand doesn’t matter with the Rainier Arms MARS. Its a great upgrade for any Glock pistol shooter and has functioned flawlessly in my G17. Rainier Arms has just made these available for sale on their website and are offering them at an introductory price. Regular price is $66.45 but the Intro Price is just $59.95. If you happen to be a Rainier Arms APEX member, your price is just $49.95. Head on over to www.RainierArms.com to snag one at the intro pricing. 

Cost Effective Scout Light and Mount Alternative

Posted on July 12th, 2016 by ar15news

A while back Arisaka Defense started offering their own take on the popular Scout Light to go along with their awesome Scout Mounts which have proven to be so popular they have had a hard time making enough light bodies to even keep them in-stock. With the success of their Scout Lights soaring, Arisaka looked for another cost effective option for their customers who needed something now and have found that in the Streamlight ProTac lights. 

The Steamlight ProTac lights come with a standard picatinny rail mount that attaches to the light body the same way any other scout mount does. Arisaka has started carrying the Streamlight ProTac 1 and 2 cell lights and pairing them with their awesome Arisaka Scout Mounts at extremely affordable prices.

Coincidentally Arisaka Defense actually has 300 Series Scout Lights, 600 Series Scout Lights and the Streamlight ProTac 1 and 2 lights all in-stock right now so you have tons of options to choose from and customize a light that best meets your needs. Check all of these options out at www.ArisakaDefense.com.

There are quite a few “PDW” style stocks on the market for the AR-15 right now. Most, if not all of them, use a shorter buffer tube setup with a modified buffer and spring to shorten the overall length of the stock which is what makes them great for use on a PDW (Personal Defense Weapon). Unfortunately, most of the PDW stocks on the market add multiple steps to disassemble the weapon and in some cases even require that you use a specific BCG. There are very few options out there that are truly drop-in setups that allow you to “shotgun” your upper and use any BCG you want. The new X Products R.O.C. (Rapid Operation Carbine) PDW Stock does just that allowing you to use any BCG you want “shotgun” your upper with out removing the front pivot pin or locking the buffer back. A couple of additional things to note is that it weights just 17.6 ounces and can be used on 9mm ARs, Direct Impingement and Piston systems. What’s even crazier…the price point is $350 with an intro price of just $289.95.

Check out the pics and details below. These are in-stock now at www.XProducts.com.

NEW – AIM AR/M16 .223/5.56/.300 BLACKOUT NIB EXO MPI BCG

Posted on July 6th, 2016 by ar15news

I’m definitely going to have to pick up a few of these new NIB EXO BCG’s from AIM Surplus. The NIB EXO coating is simply amazing and well worth the extra money over a standard NIB finish. Combine the NIB EXO finish with the awesome specs of this BCG and this should be a real winner. I already have a few AIM Surplus BCG’s and they do a great job of offering a high quality product at a very good price point. This new BCG is made right here in the USA with a Lifetime Warranty and just $119.95 shipped.

Aim Surplus NIB EXO BCG 2

AIM AR/M16 5.56/.223/.300 BLACKOUT complete Bolt Carrier Groups now with UCT’s exclusive Nickel Boron EXO Technology coating. We are having these bolts manufactured to our exacting standards with no Frills added to be able to offer the best BCG at the Best Price.

Extractor insert installed. Proudly made in the USA with a Lifetime Warranty.

UCT’S EXCLUSIVE EXO TECHNOLOGY
EXO Technology creates a competitive advantage for all kinds of components, because treated parts run dramatically longer and more accurately with less maintenance. Further, EXO greatly enhances heat dissipation, so treated products run far cooler than non-treated parts. The EXO process is permanent, lasting for the entire lifespan of treated parts. A patented, nodular nickel-boron (NiB) surface treatment, EXO nucleates on the surface atoms of metals, becoming part of the metal rather than merely applied to the outside. In addition, the treated surface becomes harder than the substrate itself, eliminating the cost, weight and degradation problems of conventional hardened metals. EXO Technology is featured in firearms, weapons and support systems used by the U.S. military and law enforcement and security agencies. EXO Technology is appropriate for virtually any application where reduced friction, extended service life, enhanced performance and lower maintenance are desirable.
