Arisaka Defense Releases Inline & Offset Picatinny Mount

Posted on September 25th, 2015 by ar15news

Arisaka Defense always puts out high quality products. I personally use a bunch of their products from Light Mounts to complete Flashlight Builds. Just this morning I received the following press release for their Inline and Offset Picatinny Mount. As you all know, KeyMod and M-LOK rails are great but what do you do with all of your lights, lasers, grips, etc. that only mount to Picatinny rail sections? You need an adapter like the ones Arisaka just released to make them compatible. What I really like about these mounts is that they are adjustable from side to side to allow a wider range of lights and accessories to fit and the KeyMod mounts incorporate the new patent pending Inverted KeyMod Screws from BCM instead of the normal. Take a look at the press release and pics below for these great mounts.

Press Release:  Arisaka Inline & Offset Picatinny Mounts Released

Arisaka is pleased to release our new Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts. The Inline version is available for KeyMod and M-Lok, while the Offset version is available for KeyMod, M-Lok, and the Centurion Arms CMR. Both KeyMod mounts utilize Bravo Company’s Patent Pending Inverted KeyMod Screws.

The Inline Picatinny Mount is designed for rail systems that feature 45 degree attachment interfaces, like the BCM KMR, Geissele SMR MK4 and MK8, Mega Arms MKM/MML/Wedge Lock, and Midwest Industries Generation 3 handguards. The height and adjustable side-to-side spacing place Picatinny based lights like the Surefire X300 and Inforce WML close to the handguard and within easy reach at the 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions.

The Offset Picatinny Mount is a combination of our Offset Scout Mount and a short Picatinny rail section, and is designed for rail systems that do not have 45 degree attachment interfaces like the Noveske NSR, Midwest Industries Generation 2, and SLR Rifleworks Solo Series handguards. Like the inline version, the mount places Picatinny based lights at the optimal 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions. The mount allows the user to adjust the lateral positioning of the Picatinny rail section for additional clearance next to front sights or other accessories.

BCM KeyMod Rail Panels Now Available In All Colors

Posted on July 28th, 2015 by ar15news

The new BCM KeyMod Rail Panels that we introduced to you last week are now available in all colors. BCM KeyMod Rail Panels are ultra-slim surfaces with aggressive non-slip and non-reflective texturing. Ventilated for cooling, each panel is radiused to create a continuous “tube” surface when run on an octagonal profile handguard such as the BCM KMR.

Made in the U.S.A. of a high-strength polymer material, BCM KeyMod Rail Panels are designed to fit ALL KeyMod mounting surfaces with seven (7) consecutive KeyMod slots. However, the panels can also be cut to any length, as needed by an end user. Finally, the panels are bi-directional with locking tabs on either end.

NEW!! BCM­ KeyMod Rail Covers Are In and They Are Awesome

Posted on July 22nd, 2015 by ar15news

If you’ve been active on social medial lately you’ve probably seen some sneak peeks at the new BCM (Bravo Company Mfg) super low profile KeyMod rail covers. For those of you who have been anxiously waiting to get some for yourself, the wait is now over. The new BCM­ KeyMod Rail Panels are now available in a kit that consists of five 5.5 inch long covers that will fit any KeyMod rail. I got my hands on a few of them and immediately put them on my BCM 16″ ELW upper with a BCM KMR 13″ rail.

BCM KeyMod Rail Panel Kit 1

Each BCM KeyMod Rail Panel will cover 7 KeyMod slots but can be cut to any shorter length to fit in shorter runs if needed. For instance, on my BCM upper I have their KAG (Kinesthetic Angled Grip) installed and have 4 KeyMod slots open in front of it. I only needed a short piece to cover where my index and middle fingers contact the rail so I grabbed my super sharp stabby thing from Matt Helm Knives and cut a two slot section to go there and the remaining 5 slots were installed on the side behind my BCM KeyMod 1913 Light Mount.

BCM KeyMod Rail Panel Kit 2

The BCM KeyMod Rail Panels are more than just a cool looking rail cover for open KeyMod slots. They offer an extreme increase in grip due to the aggressive texture. The texture on the covers actually reminds me a lot of grip tape but doesn’t feel like it will tear your hands up. If you look close you can see the BCM and Star logo on the cover.

The BCM 16″ ELW upper with the 13″ KMR is a super light weight, durable and accurate upper. Adding the new rail covers is a small add-on but an enhancement none the less. I will be adding more of the BCM­ KeyMod Rail Panels to my other KeyMod rails and you can too. BCM currently has the black covers in-stock for just $9.95 per 5 panel kit. Soon they will be offering FDE, OD Green and Foliage as well. Head on over to to order some for yourself.

Now Available!! BCM KAG (Kinesthetic Angled Grip)

Posted on November 13th, 2014 by ar15news

Bravo Company Manufacturing has absolutely been killing lately…even more than they usually do! Hot on the heels of the release of their new BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock and BCMGUNFIGHTER Mod3 Vertical Grip, BCM is now releasing the much anticipated BCMGUNFIGHTER KAG or Kinesthetic Angled Grip. 


The KAG is a cool looking rail mounted grip that is somewhat of a mix between a Handstop and a Vertical Grip. It is designed to not only help you get consistent hand placement but it also makes sure you have a more comfortable position for your support hand which will help reduce wrist and arm fatigue. The KAG uses a new patent pending mounting system like the new Mod3 Vertical Grips have and are available in both KeyMod and 1913 Picatinny models. BCM literally just released these yesterday so all models and colors are currently in-stock. Check out the details and pics on the awesome new KAG below.


The KAG is the result of collaboration between BCM® and Travis Haley, founder of Haley Strategic Partners and inventor of multiple weapons manipulation enhancements in the firearms industry.


Designed to complement modern shooting grips, the Kinesthetic Angled Grip (KAG) uses a biomechanically efficient forward rake to create an interface for positive retention and joint relief to the wrist, elbow, and shoulder, allowing for smooth weapon manipulation without substantial increase to the girth of the weapon system. Textured on both front and back, the profile of the KAG creates a channel for consistent and positive engagement which translates directly into improved efficiency in weapons manipulation and target to target transitions.


–  Forward rake gives positive retention when using “C-clamp” (thumb over bore) method of handguard support
–  Works as a rest for supported firing positions
–  Slight angle without significant bulk adds just the right amount of relief to the wrist without substantially increasing the girth of the handguard
–  Small profile is just enough to get repeatable hand position on weapon for end
–  Innovative patent pending attachment method allows for robust clamping and alignment with minimal hardware and slender accessory size
–  Textured in front and back for positive engagement
–  Made in the U.S.A. from high quality, impact resistant polymers.

Available for purchase now at an introductory price of $17.95 at



NEW!! BCM Mod 3 Vertical Grips

Posted on November 4th, 2014 by ar15news

The BCM Mod 3 Vertical Grip is the latest evolution of the BCM Short Vertical Grip, offering improved ergonomics and the choice of two popular weapons mounting solutions. BCM Vertical Grip Mod 3s are manufactured from high quality, impact resistant polymers. They come in at only 1.9 ounces, and feature a low-profile length that is intended for increased mobility and minimized snag factor. Aggressively textured flat sides are designed for improved yaw control during weapon manipulation.

BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 Vertical Grip 4


The new Patent Pending BCM® Direct Mount Picatinny 1913 interface system, was developed to be the most rigid, light-weight, and cost effective system available for Vertical Pistol Grips and Hand Stop type accessories. 

Most of the industry relies on a simple screw and backing nut for a mounting system. BCM® has developed a patent pending anchor system that not only secures to the mounting surface, but spreads the energy and force throughout the accessory. Conventional mounting systems can allow for an increased amount of shifting and flexing of the accessory. The BCM® direct mount interface system reduces those issues and offers a more secure lockup, eliminating play in the mounting surface.

BCMGUNFIGHTER Vertical Grip Mod 3
–  Low-profile length for increased mobility and decreased “snag” factor.
–  The forward angle increases the rigidity of the forearm, while providing a more natural wrist angle.
–  Can be mounted in reverse angle to increase control when grabbing handguard and grip.
–  Flat sides with aggressive texture give better yaw control to the shooter during firing and non-firing manipulations.
–  Anchor and bolt system offers a simple robust design, while maintaining a lightweight 1.9 ounces.
–  Made in the U.S.A., manufactured from high quality, impact resistant polymers.

The Mod 3 comes in two configurations: Mod 3 – KM and Mod 3 – 1913.

BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 – Released for Purchase Today

Posted on October 10th, 2014 by ar15news

Earlier today, Bravo Company Manufacturing released their much anticipated BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 for purchase. Ever since we started seeing pics of these stocks in use with some of BCM’s industry partners its been on the must have list. The new stock is extremely low profile with an anti-snag design. It also features a new latch system that is more robust than your usual stock latch which will keep your rifles stock functioning correctly after being dropped or “mortaring” during malfunction clearing. 

Another thing that sets the Mod 0 stock apart from the rest is that it is modular. One such feature is the VBOST or Vehicle Born Operations Sling Tab can be added or removed. This tab is for positioning a thick rubber band, bungee or shooters riggers band to secure your sling to the rifle when not in use, especially during vehicle born operations so your sling doesn’t get caught on anything. If you’re expecting a steep price you’ll be pleasantly surprised that these are just $55.95 which is awesome for an all American made stock. Check out the pics and additional details below then head on over to to snag one for yourself before they’re all gone. I just purchased one myself.


The next step in performance carbine stocks.  Its been in development for over a year and being released today by Bravo Company.



The strongest light weight polymer stock for your mil-spec receiver extension is here!

–  New patent pending latch reinvents the stocks interface with a mil-spec receiver extension providing user with superior strength when dropped or mortaring malfunction clearance drills.


–  Snag free Design. No sharp edges prevent tangling of rifle with shooters sling, molle gear, or other kit.


–  Modular VBOST (Vehicle Borne Operations Sling Tab) – This tab interfaces with the shooters riggers band or bungee to secure the shooters sling against the stock when carbine is not in use. Most common application when operating inside a vehicle.


–  2 different types of ambidextrous sling mounting options including QD swivel sockets.

–  Integrated color matched rubber butt pad for secure placement in shoulders along with increased durability.

–  Simple modular design. 5 parts and 1 screw allow for modular adaption of future stock options and configurations.

–  Available in Black, Flat Dark Earth, Foliage Green, and Wolf Gray.
