The bag is made of 1000D Nylon for durability, tied down straps, features a huge front pocket with 4 magazine pouches and 4 rows of MOLLE for attaching other pouches, etc. One thing it DOES NOT include that most other rifle bags on the market do….a hefty price tag.

Quentin Defense has just introduced a new 18″ Fluted 5.56 Match Grade Barrel. The new barrel has a Black Nitride finish also known as QPQ, Melonite, etc. which is a surface treatment that actually changes the surface of the metal making it extremely durable and resistant to corrosion. Many companies are starting to use it on barrels because it coats the inside and out of the barrel as its a bath in molten salt. The bore gets coated which makes it slicker than chrome lining but is more durable than chrome lining. This barrel also features a 1:8 twist which is a great “shoot all” twist rate that does a great job with a wide range of bullet weights. You’ll also see fluting in front of and behind the gas block seat for weight savings, increased cooling surfaces and its looks pretty cool too. Normal retail will be $270 which is a great deal as it sits but they are offering an introductory price on this great looking barrel for just $230. You can snag one at www.Quentin-Laser.com.

First Impressions – Fathom Arms Enhanced Nitride BCG

Posted on March 20th, 2015 by ar15news

Have you guys noticed all of the really nice BCG’s coming out lately? So much better than early 2013 when all you could find were junk BCG’s. I just happened to get my hands on one of the new Enhanced Nitride BCG’s from Fathom Arms​ and my initial impressions are “Man, this thing is nice!! They’ve made some special cuts to the carrier making fewer friction points and have added an enhanced area at the rear of the carrier to eliminate carrier tilt.

The finish is one of the nicest I’ve personally seen and I have a ton of BCG’s. One thing you typically see are machining marks or tool marks on BCG’s and this one has none. The staking of the gas key looks perfect.  These are all HPT and MPI tested as well. I’ve not put a single round through a rifle yet with this so let’s hope it runs as good as it looks.

There are a ton of upgraded features that you can read about at www.FathomArms.com. While you’re there, if you want to purchase one they gave me a code to share with you guys which is “AR15News” (case sensitive) and will save you $20. I’ll keep you guys updated as I use this Fathom Arms BCG.

NEW!! Griffin Armament M4SD 5.56 Suppressor

Posted on March 5th, 2015 by ar15news

We all know that owning Suppressors is an expensive addiction to have can make it very hard for most people to even get started in their NFA ownership. Thankfully, Griffin Armament has brought back the M4SD suppressor, a more affordable option versus their flagship M4SD II suppressor.

The M4SD has fewer parts and is faster to machine than their flagship M4SD2 and M4SD-K suppressors so they are able to pass on the savings to the consumers. The M4SD still has the same billet construction and QD system but does not come with a mount (muzzle device that the suppressor mounts to). Instead you can mount the M4SD to an inexpensive A2 compensator or upgrade to any of the Griffin Armament M4SD suppressor mounts. Take a look at the pictures and details below. Whether you are ready now or hoping to start purchasing suppressors in the future, the Griffin Armament M4SD is definitely worth putting on your list of suppressors to own.

Griffin Armament Header

The M4SD suppressor is back- providing the original project goals- an affordable, sound suppressor with support for compatible A2 compensators. Taking the lessons learned from the M4SD II flagship development program, we simplified and produced a more economical suppressor and are passing on the savings to the customer. The M4SD retains the welded, 17-4 billet construction and is as durable as the flagship suppressor. Full auto rated, equipped with a user friendly snap on interface, backed by an extensive muzzle device family- the M4SD suppressor is a great suppressor for the entry level NFA enthusiast desiring a QD interface.

The M4SD mounting system does not suffer from the wear prone issues of ratcheting systems common to the marketplace.
Our SDQD mounting system was designed to provide trouble free use.

The M4SD Does not include a mount

Diameter: 1.5″
Overall Length: 6.6″
Weight: 17.1 ounces
Materials: High Strength, High Temp, Corrosion Resistant 17-4PH Stainless Steel
Attachment: Griffin M4SD Mounts and A2 Nato spec compensator
Finish: Griffin Endura-Kote
Attenuation: 32DB

AERO Precision Deal of the Week

Posted on February 25th, 2015 by ar15news

This week AERO Precision has their FDE Cerakoted and the Black Anodized Cantilever 30mm Red Dot Scope Mounts on sale. These mounts are “Cantilever” style which means they extend the optic past the base which can come in handy when trying to create some extra space for magnifiers, etc. I’ve actually been using one of these 30mm mounts with an Aimpoint PRO for over a year now and really like it. The FDE Cerakote model is just $67.49 and the Black Anodized model is just $59.99. Pretty hard to beat this deal, especially if you don’t need a QD lever. Get in on this deal while they are still available at www.AEROPrecisionUSA.com
