KAK Industry 7.62×39 AR Pistol Build and Range Report

Posted on October 20th, 2014 by ar15news

I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve not had a ton of time to go to the range but last week I specifically made time to hit the range and function test my 7.62×39 AR Pistol I built. This thing had been sitting in my HSP INCOG Rifle Bag completely ready to go just begging for some action and it was my pleasure to oblige. Below you’ll see some pics of my 7.62×39 AR Pistol. I’ll first cover the components I used to build it and the range report will follow after that.

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

Basically all you need to retrofit or build any AR upper as a 7.62×39 is the Barrel, Bolt and Mags and KAK Industry has everything you need in one place. I already had an extra AR Pistol lower built so I just needed some of their awesome upper components. The lower is a Noveske N4 forged lower with an ALG Defense ACT trigger, Battle Arms Development Selector, Magpul MOE K2 grip, Law Tactical Gen3 Folding Stock Adapter, Phase 5 Weapon Systems Pistol Buffer Tube and a Sig Sauer SB-15 Arm Brace. I upgraded to a Wolf High Power Hammer Spring but probably could have done without it.

For the upper I sourced the heart of the build at KAK Industry. They make all of their own components and have a great reputation. I used the KAK Industry 11″ 7.62×39 barrel, KAK Industry 7.62×39 complete BCG, KAK Industry Gas Block and Gas Tube. The upper receiver is an AERO Precision forged upper with a Northtech Defense Ti-FANG Titanium forward assist, Fortis Mfg Hammer charging handle, Centurion Arms 11″ CMR rail and a BattleComp BABC. Topped it all off with a Vortex Optics Viper PST 1-4 scope and an American Defense Mfg QD mount.

Of course the weather is changing up here in Michigan. It was cold and rainy that morning at the range but I couldn’t care less. I brought along some really nice Hornady 123gr 7.62×39 SST ammo to run through the brand new AR Pistol. The best thing you can do when function testing a new AR is to take it slow. I only had one ASC 7.62×39 mag so I loaded one round in the mag, pulled back on the charging handle, flipped the selector to “America” and pulled the trigger. As expected it went BOOM so I checked the chamber to make sure the rifle ejected the spent casing, which it did. After that first round goes as planned you get a bit of a smile on your face and start to have fun.

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

I loaded up another 5 rounds and proceeded to fire them down range sighting in the Vortex Optics Viper PST 1-4 scope.  First 3 rounds went through perfect but on the fourth I had a Failure To Feed. Keep in mind I only had 5 rounds in the mag to start meaning this was the second to last round in the mag. I stripped the mag, removed the round and inspected it noticing that once the mag was removed the round didn’t really seem to be stuck or anything. I loaded another 10 rounds and again, second to last round FTF. This was a recurring theme and it became very clear that the issue was with the mag and definitely not at all a problem with the Upper, BCG or Barrel. Other than the second to last round of each mag issue I had absolutely ZERO malfunctions with this build. It really was a pleasure to shoot. I’ve heard the ASC mags get better as you wear them in but I will also be looking into some other brands and will do a followup article specifically regarding 7.62×39 AR Mags.

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

So after blowing through almost all of my ammo getting to know the 7.62×39 AR Pistol, I saved the last 5 rounds to get a little grouping on paper. Now keep in mind, when I test fire my AR’s I always go to the shorter range. Its basically a 30-35 yard range that typically has less people on it. When I shoot for groups I usually head on over to the 100 yard range but being that this is just an AR Pistol, I had no bipod, etc I decided to stay on the shorter range and just get a group there. The image below shows you a 5 round group, just resting the handguard on a block. I’m positive I could tighten this group up but I was out of ammo. One of these days I’ll get it out on the 100 yard range and get some longer range data. I was very happy with this group though based on the distance I would expect to shoot this rifle at in a real world situation. 

KAK Ind 762x39 AR Pistol Build 7

Overall, I am very pleased with this build. Aside from the magazine issue, all of the parts functioned flawlessly. KAK Industry really is a one stop shop for tons of AR Parts including 5.56, 300BLK, 7.62×39, 458 SOCOM and .308 builds. This is not my first experience with KAK Industry and I’ve enjoyed every part I’ve purchased from them. For this specific build you can check out the KAK 7.62×39 AR Parts here. For all other builds just visit the KAKIndustry.com website and get to looking around at the awesome stuff they offer.  

NEW!! HexMag FDE and OD Green Mags and 10 & 15 Round Mags

Posted on October 7th, 2014 by ar15news

HexMag brand magazines have really been picking up in popularity lately. They introduced a Black AR-15 magazine a while back with a cool raised Hex pattern that actually adds some additional grip to the mag. They also feature a unique magazine identification system called “HexID” which lets you change the color of the follower and base plate retention tab for quick identification.

Today, HexMag is introducing their new FDE (Flat Dark Earth) and OD Green colored 30 round magazines with matching follower and base pad retention tab colors as well. They are also introducing their new line of “TRUE” 10/30 and 15/30 state compliant magazines. They were nice enough to send me some pre-production samples to take some pics of and let me help them introduce the new products.

People have been asking for an FDE and OD Green versions of the HexMag for a while now. The FDE and OD Green HexMags match very well with most of the popular AR furniture on the market and as with all HexMags, they come with the standard Orange guts.

With the introduction of the new FDE and OD Green colors, HexMag is also introducing matching colored internals as well as part of their HexID system. That means if you didn’t want the standard Orange follower and base pad retention tab you will be able to purchase the FDE or OD Green internals.

The last new product they are introducing today is their “TRUE” 10/30 and 15/30 state compliant magazines. Basically these are magazines that will only accept 10 or 15 rounds but look like 30 round magazines. The reason they are called “TRUE” is that they have a shorter spring and a riser inside the mag that makes them either a 10 or 15 round mag. The black risers in the photos below are just 3D printed models but give you an idea of what they will look like. HexMag designed the risers with a contour that allows you to wrap some Paracord, etc around the riser. On the 10 round model the riser is longer so I decided to try wrapping some Fishing Line and putting a little package of hooks, weights and a jig in there which fit perfectly. On the 15 round model I put a few matches, cotton balls and a striking surface inside. This works great because the spring stops at the top of the riser so there is no possibility of the items getting damaged or inhibit operation of the mag. Obviously I would not sacrifice 15-20 rounds in a mag personally just to have a little emergency bug out stash but for those who live in states with limits on magazine size, this is a pretty cool feature.

All of these new mags will be available early November 2014 so you won’t have to wait very long. I can tell you I’ve been using the Black model HexMags for a while now and really like them. As soon as I hear these are available for purchase I will be sure to let you guys know. I’ve also listed all of the ways you can follow HexMag below.

A buddy of mine (UWone77) has been playing around with some new products from Arisaka Defense and he seems to be very happy with them.

The first components they are making available will be an M-LOK and KeyMod light mount, M-LOK QD Sling Attachment Point and a Light Mount that is designed to mount directly to a Centurion Arms CMR rail. I’ve listed some pictures below. As I mentioned their website hasn’t been finished yet but they have a Facebook page that they have started so you can follow along as they introduce new products.

AR15NEWS SPR (Special Purpose Rifle) Build

Posted on September 16th, 2014 by ar15news

A while back I wrote a few articles about the new CIV Tactical SPR (Special Purpose Rifle) barrels that they were producing one at a time by hand and the extreme accuracy reputation they have. That got me thinking I needed to get my hands on one myself and do a new SPR build. My plan was to buy one of Dustin’s barrels and assemble the rifle myself but after talking to him a bit he said, “Hey, send me all of the parts you have and I’ll hand assemble it the CIV Tactical way.” I wasn’t exactly sure what that meant but it sounded cool to me. 

I already had a Tactical Firearm Solutions receiver set and Parallax Tactical rail ready to go that TFS and cerakoted a nice Sniper Gray for me. I boxed up the Upper Receiver, Rail and Gas Tube to which Dustin would add the new SPR Barrel (which comes with a matched Bolt), Gas Block and CIV Tac Flat Line Muzzle Brake. I had never had Dustin build me a complete upper and still didn’t know what the “CIV Tactical Way” meant but I was soon to find out. Along the way Dustin sent me some pictures of the progress and detailing some of the things he does to make sure you get the accuracy that his barrels and uppers are known for.

One of the first photos he sent me was showing the Bling Bling of the barrel crown that he does by hand on his lathe. 

1 CIV Tactical SPR Barrel Crown

Another set of pictures he showed me was the process of Lapping the face of the receiver threads and the rear facing side of the barrel extension. This process is typically done in precision bolt action rifles and ensures that the barrel is in perfect alignment with the upper receiver which obviously is done for increased accuracy.

1 Civ Tactical SPR Upper Lapped

1 CIV Tactical SPR Barrel Extension True

After a couple of weeks I received the assembled upper back and and couldn’t wait to get it all kitted out and take it to the range. Below is a great shot of the barrel itself before mounting the rail on the upper. As I mentioned before these barrels are completely hand made 416R Stainless Steel, 1/8 Twist and are chambered in .223 Wylde. The .223 Wylde chamber will shoot any .223 or 5.56 round but is designed to increase the accuracy of 5.56 NATO ammo. 

CIV Tactical SPR 0

The assembled upper has a Tactical Firearms Solutions Upper, Armageddon Tactical charging handle, Griffin Armament 45 degree offset Fail Safe Sights, Ares Armor NiB Bolt Carrier with CIV Tactical Match Bolt, Vortex Optics Viper PST 4-16 FFP scope, Parallax Tactical FFSSR 15″ rail, CIV Tactical 18″ SPR Match Barrel, Gas Block and Flat Line muzzle brake. 

CIV Tactical SPR 1CIV Tactical SPR 6

The lower I assembled myself and used the matching Tactical Firearms Solutions lower, Battle Arms Development Selector and EPS pin set. The EPS pins were a big help as the Cerakote made it nearly impossible to install a standard set of Takedown Pins. Even now they are very tight (which is how I like them) but the detent for a bullet tip on the other side makes it a breeze to push them through. I also used a LUTH-AR MBA1 stock that I got from MidwestPX. This stock is about half the price of comparable models such as the Magpul PRS but it still performed great, however its not quite as refined quality as you would expect. For an SPR rifle I don’t thin you would want to use anything other than a nice 2-stage trigger which is why I went with the Geissele SSA-E. I have this same trigger in other rifles and its seriously one of my favorite triggers I’ve ever used. Smooth, light take-up, you feel the wall (beginning of the second stage) and know if you pull any further that rifle is gonna go bang. The SSA-E will easily make any lower feel like a highly tuned machine.

CIV Tactical SPR 2CIV Tactical SPR 3

I mounted the Vortex Optics Viper PST 4-16 First Focal Plane scope in an American Defense Manufacturing QD mount and purchased a B&T Industries Atlas bipod. This setup really completed the rifle and man did it look sick!  

CIV Tactical SPR 9

The whole rifle just really came together perfectly but what you and I really want to know is….”How does it perform at the range?” I loaded up my rifle, some Greenline Tactical 75gr .223 ammo and headed to the 100 yard range. One thing I didn’t want to do is put the rifle in some lead sled and get accuracy data that way. I wanted to shoot it exactly how I would if I were actually using it which for me is Bipod in front, Bag in back. After getting the scope dialed onto the target it was time to do my best not to mess this up. :)

Civ Tactical SPR at the range

I decided to shoot 5 round groups instead of 3 just to show consistency. The following images are just a few of what I would consider excellent groups that I got out of this rifle at 100 yards. There were so many of these to choose from so I just picked three that were somewhat different. The first image shows a 5 round .5 MOA group (looks like 4 shots but the 5th went through one of the other holes). The second image shows 5 round .625 MOA group. The third image shows a 4 shot .5 MOA group with a low 5th round that knew I pulled as soon as I shot it.

1-CIV Tactical SPR Range 1

2-CIV Tactical SPR Range 2

3-CIV Tactical SPR Range 3

The upper shot absolutely perfect with zero FTE’s and zero FTF’s, bolt held open on an empty mag, it was just perfect. I own and have shot lots of other supposed “Match” barrels and many of them are so inconsistent that they made me think I was doing something wrong. The CIV Tactical Match SPR Barrel proved to be an extremely consistent rifle even in the hands of a novice precision shooter such as myself. Suffice it to say, the CIV Tactical SPR barrel is the real deal. I know there are some true shooters out there that could get even more accuracy out of this barrel. As I’ve mentioned before, I typically build all of my own AR’s but I would not hesitate even for one moment to have Dustin at CIV Tactical build me another upper. When you couple the hand made CIV Tactical barrel with the gunsmithing that Dustin does prior to assembly, it shows that precision shooting isn’t just reserved for bolt action guns. You can purchase this exact CIV Tactical SPR barrel in either 18 or 20 inch lengths with a matched Bolt right now at www.CIVTactical.com.

Adams Arms Makes BOLD Move to Dominate the Market

Posted on July 21st, 2014 by ar15news

Big things are happening in the halls of Adams Arms these days. Today they have the ability to take superior products to the market at industry leading prices. A recent move to bring production in house coupled with increasing overall productivity allows them to pass savings directly to customers. While traditional piston systems can cost an average of $1,200-$1,600, the Adams Arms base piston rife now has a MSRP of just $995. These prices allow the company to compete with lower priced, traditional rifle systems, while still offering consumers the ability to afford high-quality piston rifles, parts and accessories.

Adams Arms President and CEO Michael Froning commented, “We are extremely excited to be able to reset the bar from a product cost standpoint while delivering the highest quality products on the market. While the industry is seeing reduced prices to combat lagging sales, we have been able to drive our costs down significantly and pass on savings of over 20% to the consumer”

The company also announced exciting new upcoming projects to include:

* .308 Rifles

* Pistols

* .22 Rifles

* Shotguns

* Custom Slides

* Projectiles

* Accessories

More news on the release of these products is expected in the next few weeks.

Adams Arms Press Release

Established in 2007, Adams Arms began with an innovative design that improved the operating system of AR style rifles. The Adams Arms Retrofit Kit provided users the ability to upgrade their existing direct impingement rifles to a piston operated system in a mere thirty minutes or less using a 3/4 inch wrench and hammer. They received a patent in 2008 and gained major OEM partnerships which quickly made their system the number one piston system on the market with more than three times the OEM contracts of competitors.

By 2011 they were building their own upper assemblies and within a year manufacturing complete rifles. Adams Arms’ growth skyrocketed as they acquired their largest OEM manufacturer allowing them to produce the majority of their parts in-house. Adams Arms also develops and utilizes some of the most technologically advanced manufacturing processes, machining techniques and coatings, including QPQ, PVDs and Nickels, that far exceed Mil-Spec standards for quality and performance.

They launched VooDoo Innovations, a sister company, in 2013. VooDoo brings high end coatings and processes to the direct impingement market. With so much growth, a major decision was made to purchase $4 million in manufacturing assets. New equipment and the addition of key leadership and industry hires resulted in more than 75% of production moving in-house. Distribution channels were expanded to new distributors, buying groups, direct dealers and website retail sales.

This year they have continued to streamline production and grow their line with products such as:
-  XLP Low Profile Gas Block
-  C.O.R. Rifle
-  Ultra Lite Advanced Dissipator
-  Line of 300 BLK Products
-  VooDoo Rail System
-  VooDoo Innovations LifeCoat Parts

Badrock Tactical Making Waves In the High Quality AR Market

Posted on July 19th, 2014 by ar15news

Badrock Tactical is a newer AR manufacturer but that isn’t stopping them from already turning some heads. I recently had a chance to speak with the owner of Badrock Tactical and with a business model aimed at making high quality AR-15 and AR-10 components and complete rifles at an incredible price point, I felt it would be awesome to introduce them to those of you who read and follow AR15NEWS. 

Badrock Tactical recently teamed up with the talented people over at Juggernaut Tactical to start making their billet receivers sets and it has turned into an awesome partnership. Juggernaut Tactical is well known for their Rogue M1A Chassis plus some awesome 80% receivers and jigs. Badrock Tactical will use a similar set to the JT receivers for their rifles and they really make an extremely sweet looking build. The billet receiver sets are priced awesome as well at just $329 for AR-15 and $399 for AR-10 billet sets.

Badrock Tactical BT15 Rifle 2

The builds they put together are nothing short of breathtaking. They have styles to fit just about any shooter, including for those who like a little bling. They’ve literally gone through each rifle they offer and upgraded everything possible including Ambi Bolt Catches from Phase 5, PWS Enhanced Buffer Tubes, JP Silent Capture Buffer Springs and either Timney or Geissle Trigger Systems with several hand guard options and price ranges starting in the $1,800 range including custom Cerakote finishes. They will also be working with Juggernaut Tactical to make “less enhanced” rifles to market that will be more in the $1,300 range but still feature mil spec internals, the same billet receiver set, free float rail system, etc. 

Badrock Tactical BT15 Rifle 3

In Short, Badrock Tactical is a company to keep an eye on. They have some great stuff coming in the near future and appear to know a thing or two about creating some great looking rifles. In case you were wondering, I didn’t get paid to do this article (never have and never will sell article space) nor did I feel that I had to write this article. I wanted to do it because they have something different about them that I really like. Hopefully you love learning about new companies like I do and I hope to be able to work with Badrock Tactical more in the future to bring you new products and deals, etc. Speaking of deals, I almost forgot that Badrock Tactical wanted to offer a special 10% discount code to our readers. Use the code “AR15NEWS” now through Tuesday [7/22/14] at www.BadrockTactical.com.

NEW!! RailScales KeyMod G10 Grip Panels

Posted on May 27th, 2014 by ar15news

RailScales is a brand new company formed by Bill Coye of Coye Knives and Derek Shelton of Asset Weapon Mfg. I’ve been a big fan of Bill Coye and his amazing knife work for a while now and its really exciting to see him venture into the AR/AK world. RailScales are KeyMod Grip Panels made out of G10 material which is commonly used in knife handles. G10 is a lightweight material but strong and very durable at the same time. One of the things you’ll notice below is that these are not massive rail covers but just enough to add some grip to your rails. This smaller size also means the won’t interfere with other accessories you might be running on your rail at the same time. Check out the pics and details below. Look for these to be available for purchase here in the next few weeks from www.GetRailScales.com.

RailScales announces G10 KeyMod Grip Panels for the AR and AK rifle platforms.

Bill Coye of Coye Knives and Derek Shelton of Asset Weapon MFG have teamed up to bring the first G10 grip panels for the KeyMod system to market. RailScales LLC was formed from Shelton’s machinist/gunsmith background and Coye’s signature textured G10 custom knife handles. This combination produces a grip panel that is not only functional, but also looks great as well.

G10 is a fiberglass reinforced epoxy laminate that is extremely durable, grippy, lightweight and has minimal heat transfer.

“Derek and I have been mutual customers since 2009,” says Coye. “We’ve watched as each other’s company has grown and it was only a matter of time before the two of us got together on a project”.

The first offering is a four grooved black panel design reminiscent of a Coye Knives custom handle. Numerous lengths, textures, colors, and other G10 accessories are already underway as well.

Launch date is on or before June 11th, 2014. Pricing and per-pack quantity information will be available at that time.
