FightLite® Industries, a division of ARES Defense Systems® Inc. located in Melbourne, Florida announces the launch of a new e-Commerce website to help streamline the ordering process for its online customers.

Featured on the new website are FightLite® Industries’ popular and patented MCR® and SCR® product lines, including full rifles, upper receiver assemblies, lower receiver assemblies, performance upgrade kits, spare parts, and accessories that expand the operational envelope and overall utility of these products.

The innovative and patented FightLite® SCR® (Sport Configurable Rifle) is the first of its class of firearms that is not only legal almost anywhere in America including New York, New Jersey, California and other restrictive states, but is also the first rifle to successfully combine the traditional lines of a hunting pattern rifle with the modularity of an AR-15 rifle.

The FightLite® SCR® blends strength, reliability, accuracy and rugged all-weather characteristics of America’s longest serving infantry rifle with the classic lines of an American sporter.  Lightweight, accurate and featuring a MIL-STD 1913 flat top upper receiver that accepts most modern optics, the FightLite® SCR® is designed to perform under the most demanding field, competitive shooting or tactical conditions. The multi-caliber, modular design permits the user to instantly change calibers in the field by simply pressing two pins and exchanging one upper receiver assembly for another.

Designed for optimal configuration, the FightLite® SCR® accepts most Modern Sporting Rifle accessories and parts including magazines, upper receivers, barrels, bolts, handguards and optics; so it can be easily and effectively reconfigured for each individual shooters’ style and activity. Supported by a full line of performance accessories and manufactured of the highest quality aircraft grade alloys by American craftsmen, the weatherproof and dependable FightLite® SCR® will provide its users with a lifetime of accurate shooting pleasure and can be passed down from generation to generation. SCR® – One Rifle, Any Season!®

The patented FightLite® MCR® – Mission Configurable Rifle is an 8.5 lb weapon featuring gas piston operation, a 3-second quick change barrel system and has the capability to feed from both M27-linked ammunition belts and standard AR15/M16 box magazines at user discretion.

FightLite NextGen MCR Rifle 1a

As FightLite’s premier rifle offering for the commercial marketplace, the MCR® vastly improves upon the standard AR15/M4 by offering exceptional flexibility with its dual-feed capability and quick-change barrel. This flexibility, combined with other unique features, allows users to instantly customize the MCR® without tools for virtually any use. 

The MCR® quick-change barrel allows users to configure the MCR® in seconds without the aid of tools and is available in 12” (NFA Rules Apply) and 16” inch lengths. Furthermore, the MCR® features gas-piston operation that provides greater reliability in extreme conditions, and is cleaner, cooler and more reliable in adverse conditions than the legacy direct-gas system. 

The unique design of the MCR® also allows customers to upgrade their existing rifles by simply substituting a FightLite® supplied MCR® upper receiver assembly in place of the legacy upper, which are rearward compatible to the earliest AR15’s from the 1960’s. MCR® – One Weapon, Any Mission!®

Battle Arms Development, makers of the best ambi safety selectors on the market and other awesome accessories, has just launched a brand new website.

The new website is much easier to navigate and aesthetically pleasing. Check out the new website and some of the “coming soon” product at

AERO Precision just launched a brand new website. The new website is not only easier to navigate but it also does a better job of displaying all of the different types of products AERO Precision now offers such as complete AR-15 Uppers, complete .308 Rifles, etc. On top of the ease of use they have also really added an emphasis on improving the quality of their product photography. When you’re making an investment in AR parts its definitely nice to be able to see just how nice the parts are and get a good sense of the finish, etc. Sadly most firearm companies don’t care enough to take nice pictures of the products they expect you to pay a good amount of money for so this definitely says a lot about AERO Precision’s commitment to offering a quality product and quality experience.

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

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.

Costa Ludus and crew have started a cool new marketing strategy for their clients and its called Costa Media Group. They just released what hopefully will be the first of many “short” videos or what you might think of as a commercial featuring guns and gear from their different clients. This is not your typical “Youtube” production. Instead they have teamed up with guys such as Isaac Marchiona to create some very high quality cinematography that makes the product placement subconscious but something that you’ll remember. No, you won’t see any Subway subs or anything like that, just high quality gear….oh and a beard. Take a look at the new video and the “Behind the Scenes” video as well. Be sure to subscribe to the Costa Media Group Youtube channel so you’ll get a notification of any future video releases.

About 1 month ago we helped introduce you guys to the new Cool Guy Yard Sale website. After just 1 month in business it looks like CGYS is here to stay and is rocking right along. CGYS is a great place where you can buy and sell new and used gear. I am on there quite often and there is always great deals. Members of CGYS also get exclusive discounts from a bunch of awesome manufacturers and their is even a “News Feed” that shows you all of the latest articles from the best Industry News websites.

If you’re like Rob, the owner of TacStrike and CGYS, you most likely have a bunch of gear in a closet that you haven’t even looked at in a while. Throw it up there for sale and help fund your next build or some Christmas presents or something. Check out the press release from Cool Guy Yard Sale below to see where they are now and what they have coming up. Don’t forget to check out the website for yourself too at

Cool Guy Yard Sale
Press Release

Subject: One Month of Service

Friends and Shooters I would like to bring you all an update on the activity at Cool Guy Yard Sale (CGYS) over the last 30 days since the website went live bringing a new idea to the shooting community.  A service based business that serves members in 3 ways and we are pushing forward with new initiatives, partners and members daily.

As I mentioned above CGYS is a very different idea.  If you look around the shooting sports industry you will find very few service-based businesses outside of the gunsmiths and custom shops.  We are out to change that dynamic with the first multi-faceted, membership based, convenience website. Services currently range in three areas with more services being built into a single website so that we can provide a single location on the web for you to go to receive information and discounts from industry leaders, news concerning the shooting sports and Second Amendment activities, along with an outlet for moving guns and gear that you no longer need or want.

The last 30 days have been very exciting for us and for all of our new members who have been making great deals and taking up our industry partners for amazing discounts direct from the manufactures.  In the last month we have had more than 70,000 page views with an average time on CGYS of more than 4 minutes.  That is huge and has started to drive the engine of commerce between all the people we are brining together.

CGYS has a lot to do to make sure that your membership fee of $10 per month is a huge bargain for each and every one of you.  Let me tell you how we are doing it.

First there is the news and podcasts links that we are building in with more pages coming soon. I know that everyone is busy with work and life and I also know that surfing the net isn’t as easy as it once was.  Social media is distracting and much of what you wanted to see by “liking” a page is missed due to Facebook rules and Twitter is limited by character content.  CGYS is working with the best bloggers, podcasters and video channels to bring everything into one central location for you convenience and knowledge.

Next, we are working with some of the best places to shop and train to provide member only special discounts that will save you more than your membership dues over the course of the year.  Just a few of the companies on board are Raven Concealment, Austere Provisions, Peter’s Custom Holsters, Ballistics USA and TacStrike Steel Target Systems.

To provide an example TacStrike Systems provides CGYS members a special 15% discount code that can be found when you are member of CGYS.  TacStrike’s flagship steel target called the ¼ Scale sells for $250.  So if you were in the market for some steel you could save $37.50 per ¼ Scale just for being a member at CGYS.  That’s almost 4 month’s of membership fees covered in one outside purchase.

Then there is the Yard Sale itself. This is the centerpiece of what we are doing as a service. A place that provides you a professional way to list your items for sale or buy new items that you want at great savings from other members.  Just visit the yard sale once and you will realize that we put a lot of effort into making CGYS look more like Amazon and nothing like a forum’s gear exchange.  Added to that an internal email system to protect your privacy and make communication a breeze and all of a sudden you have the ability to operate your very own “webstore” inside of Cool Guy Yard Sale.

Businesses are also welcome to join CGYS and sell their inventory on the website.  A slightly higher membership fee is required to run your store on CGYS but we will never ask you for another dime after your membership fees.  That’s right NO COMMISIONS, NO LISTING FEES, NO BRIBING YOU FOR A BETTER LISTING.

The future holds great things as well. Ammo finders, training schedules, NFA and FFL Resources, along with some top secret partnerships that will prove to be handy and informative for the members of CGYS.

Hundred of shooters have already joined the ranks of CGYS and personally I’ve already sold more than $700 worth of used gear that I will never miss and am halfway to my goal for a new optic. So stop over at and get involved with the new family that is growing and thriving just for you.

Thank you for taking the time to spend a few minutes learning about our new initiative and services that we are brining to shooters.

Owner of CGYS Inc.

I’ve been part of the Cool Guy Yard Sale since the very beginning. It started as a small group of guys on Facebook selling and trading items between each other that quickly grew to a few thousand guys in the group and has become so popular that it now has its own website. One of the things that I love about it so much is the people that are involved in the day to day operations of it. CGYS is the brainchild of my buddy Rob from TacStrike who spends every waking hour in the shooting/gun industry so he knows how a site like this should be run. He’s created a site that he personally would want to buy and sell items on. Makes sense.

620 Cool Guy Yard Sale screencap

At the Cool Guy Yard Sale they have also teamed up with manufacturers such as TacStrike, CIV Tactical, Peters Custom Holsters, etc. to offer discounts to CGYS members. Membership is very cheap with zero listing fees and zero commissions. What you sell your items for is what you get.

Anyways, if you have not yet, head on over to and take a look around. I think you’ll like what you see. There are already a ton of guys on there selling and buying items and the website has only been up for a few days. If you would like, there is a press release below with additional information.

Cool Guy Yard Sale Launches With a New Idea for the Shooting Community

October 22, 2013

 Rob Tackett, owner of TacStrike Systems Inc., has brought a new concept to the community. Cool Guy Yard Sale (CGYS) is focused on becoming a sole source website for information, community relations, and a gear swap shop. CGYS is a membership site for those who want to ease the pains of social media, forums and information flow for news on the shooting industry. In addition, the e-commerce style Yard Sale for the selling of gear, guns and ammunition by the members.

Features of Cool Guy Yard Sale’s member swap shop include:

– An easy to use product listing form that is mobile device friendly for snapping a picture and submitting your items for sale.
– A internal messaging system so that personal information doesn’t have to be disclosed until after the sale is completed.
– Web searchable (i.e. Google) descriptions so that your items can be seen by those that are not members but looking for a specific item which increases the sales potential.
– No commission memberships for individuals, non-FFL vendors and FFL sales. Once you are a member you can list and buy all you want without additional fees.
– No Extortion Style listings.  There is no such thing on CGYS as a “featured listing” or “highlighted text” to get you to spend more money.
-Support Services for anything you need and much more.

Cool Guy Yard Sale is also working with companies from around the industry to bring special discounts to members.  CGYS accepts no money or gifts from these manufacturers.  CGYS works with them for the benefit of our members. With the cost of gear these days it is easy to see that the savings can be huge on a monthly basis for the members.

CGYS is also evaluating adding features like a tabbed Youtube page bringing all of the latest industry posting to one location, a community forum and chat room, and ammo search engines, not to mention any other great ideas our members may have that we haven’t thought of yet.

Memberships for Cool Guy Yard Sale are only $10 per month for an individual, $50 per month for a retail store or non-FFL manufacturer and $100 per month for a business who wishes to sell firearms on CGYS. All membership levels offer unlimited listings, no commission payments and full access to the website. For the cost of a good cigar or a fast food value meal a member can simplify their life, sell off un-used gear to help fund new purchases and receive deep discounts from a growing list of industry leaders for their products.

We are building a new community and we hope to see you there.

Shellback Tactical recently completely overhauled their website. The new site is cleaner, faster, and more user friendly. The URL is still but now its easier to find items such as the reigning “Bang for Your Buck Plate Carrier” champion BANSHEE PC or a whole slew of other very high quality tactical gear components. 

620 Shellback Tactical New Website

To celebrate their new website they are offering 15% off 5 of their most popular items. These items include the Banshee Plate Carrier, Banshee QD Plate Carrier, Warfighter Battle Belt, Banshee QD Cummerbund and Cobra Duty Belt. The original 15% off sale was slated to end yesterday but yours truly totally missed the message and didn’t know about it until it was too late. So instead of ending it, Shellback Tactical basically gave us another week for the AR15NEWS family to get in on the savings. 

To save 15% Off each one of these products head on over the and get some! The discount is valid for web orders only.  Just use the code “15NOW” at checkout. I’ve copied links to all of them individually below. 







If the good people over at Noveske Rifleworks launch a brand new website and the splash page says “All your wildest dreams are about to come true…The new Noveske coming soon.” you know there is something awesome in the works. No real idea of what that means just yet but I’m excited to find out. Head on over to the new and make sure you add it to your bookmarks. The video below is also posted on the main splash page of the new site. This should be awesome! Website header


We’ll do our best to keep you updated as Noveske Rifleworks releases additional information but you can also keep an eye on the Noveske Rifleworks Facebook Page and on

If you are in the market for a new set of Ballistic Plates for your Plate Carrier or looking for a complete Plate Carrier setup the new go to source is Katylist. Katylist is owned and operated by the same people who have brought us the extremely popular Shellback Tactical Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier. Katylist is not only a website to purchase hard armor for your plate carrier but also will become a brand all of its own. To celebrate the launch of their new website, Katylist is offering a smoking deal on some Victory Tactical Gear Level IV Plates (Rifle Plate/Hard Armor) for just $169.95 a piece. Another great deal that I found on their site is the Banshee Defender System which is a Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier and two VTG Level IV plates for just $475. That is $125 off the normal retail price. For more information, check out or click the links below.

Our friends over at 21st Century Gunfighter just launched a brand new website. Launching a new website is cool but in and of itself may not be totally “news worthy”. What makes this a big deal is the fact that they also added ammunition to their web store and are now taking pre-orders for their extremely popular M&P Catalyst Extended Mag Release. So basically they now are an additional source to feed your hungry AR with some nice ammo and order an extended mag release for your M&P pistol. Check out the new site at
