Last month we helped introduced the new Centurion Arms CMR rails with KeyMod or M-LOK attachment systems. This was something Centurion Arms customers have been asking for for a long time and now they can get it. Centurion Arms promised a pre-order in early February and they weren’t messing around. Starting today, you can now pre-order a 13″ or 15″ CMR rail with your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, they are also offering them at an introductory price of $195 for 13″ and $200 for the 15″.

Head on over to www.CenturionArms.com and get your order in for these really awesome rails. They should be shipping by the end of the month.

Centurion Arms Adds KeyMod and M-LOK to the CMR Lineup

Posted on January 21st, 2016 by ar15news

This week at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Centurion Arms sneakily introduced two new versions of their extremely popular CMR rail in the Magpul and BattleComp booths. The CMR rail is a very slim, rugged, tubular rail. It features threaded holes every couple of inches to bolt the CMR rail covers, hand stops, etc to but most accessories made by other companies are designed to attach to 1913 quad rails, KeyMod rails or M-LOK rails. Now you can get the CMR in your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK as well.

Now that you can choose KeyMod or M-LOK, it really opens up a whole new world of usable accessories you can attach to your CMR rail. I’ve got a ton of grips, light mounts, hand stops, rail sections, rail covers, etc. just waiting for an awesome rail like this. I immediately installed the CMR M-LOK rail on my CIV Tactical SPR build. The ability to add a picatinny rail for my bipod via M-LOK (or KeyMod for that matter) is quick and painless.

The overall profile of the new CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails is very similar to the original CMR and still features anti-rotation tabs. The barrel nut is also very similar, in fact the new rail will mount to an older CMR barrel nut, but Centurion Arms actually modified the new barrel nut to be able to tighten them using a standard AR-15 castle nut wrench.

The production model CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails will have QD Sling Mounts at the front and rear of the rail on each side just like the original (the ones in my photos were pre-production) and will be available in both 15″ (shown) and 13″ models.

MSRP on the new rails will run $240 for a 15″ and $230 for a 13″. Centurion Arms will start taking pre-orders at the beginning of February at an introductory price of just $200 for a 15″ or $195 for a 13″ and start shipping units around the end of February. Centurion Arms is an awesome company owned and operated by a retired Navy SEAL. Lets show them some support!

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.

Centurion Arms 4th of July Sale 2014

**UPDATE: 6/4/2014 – The new 9.5″ and 11″ CMR Rails are now in-stock and shipping at RainierArms.com at Introductory Pricing.**  

A few days ago Centurion Arms released information on their new 9.5″ and 11″ CMR rails. The CMR is an extremely popular modular round handguard that is built to take a beating and come back for more. Initially the CMR, in both AR-15 and .308, was only available in 12″ and 14″ lengths. With enough people requesting shorter lengths of the CMR it was time to make it happen. Some times I get to pretend I’m a cool kid and get my hands on some of the new stuff before its out and this was one of those times. I received a 9.5″ CMR rail a few weeks ago which I immediately put on a 300BLK upper I was building. Then just last week I was pleasantly surprised when a 11″ version showed up as well. As expected, these little shorty CMR rails are pretty awesome. I’ve included a picture of my two rails immediately below and the Centurion Arms Press Release below that. I do know that RainierArms.com will have these new rails first before anyone else. If you are wanting to get your hands on a set, be prepared to buy very soon as they could be up on the website literally any day.

**Press Release**

Centurion Arms CMR Now Available In New Lengths !

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

Morgantown, IN.-

Centurion Arms, LLC announces that the widely popular Centurion Modular Rail (CMR) is now available in two new lengths: 9.5” and 11”.

620 Centurion Arms CMR 9.5 and 11

Their patent-pending CMR rail system is a lightweight, rugged, one piece, free float hand guard that when installed, gives the upper a continuous 12 o’clock rail. The CMR system clamps to a proprietary barrel nut that can be installed on all AR15, M4, and M16 type weapons systems. It was designed with the top 1913 rail for mounting the most common accessories, yet does away with the need for 1913 rail at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. This allows for accessories to be directly mounted to it with a dedicated, simple, light-weight, mount. However, it does allow for 1913 rail to be added, if needed, for some less common accessories. 

Additionally, Centurion Arms built in anti-rotation QD sling swivels in 4 positions. The main objective is to have a smaller, lighter weight, more ergonomic, hand guard that maintains or enhances functionality for the end user.

“As professionals ourselves, we know the importance of keeping things simple and that was our design intent here…a K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid) system.” -Monty Leclair, Owner Centurion Arms, LLC.
