DRACOS Barrels just launched their new website and are taking preorders on the StraightJacket Barrel System. The StraightJacket Barrel System consists of a barrel housed inside of a proprietary “jacket”. The jacket increases the accuracy of the barrel by acting as a heatsink to pull heat from the barrel into the jacket and also by increasing the rigidity of the barrel itself so there is less barrel whip. Heat and Harmonics are two things you need to control to really improve accuracy and the StraightJacket Barrel System does both.
Preorders are live and all orders placed now will be shipping in the next 6-8 weeks. DRACOS StraightJacket Barrels are available in 243 Win, 260 REM, .308, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6mm Creedmoor and 7mm-08 REM at www.DRACOSBarrels.com.
The other day I took some time to start sighting in my new 20″ .308 upper I just built for my FALKOR Defense rifle. Shot this awesome 100yd 3-shot sub-1/2-MOA ( .4935″ ) group with a 20″ Criterion Barrels match barrel. I realize it is just a 3-shot group but I’m very impressed so far. I was shooing some PNW Arms 175gr “Sniper” Match 7.62×51 ammunition. I had a few other really nice groups but this was my last and tightest group of the day. I only have room for a 100yd range on my property but my buddy has a 500yd gong that I think I need to ring with this baby.
This is a FALKOR Defense .308 ambi rifle with a CriterionBarrels 20″ .308 match barrel, Bravo Company USA charging handle and muzzle brake, Geissele SD-E trigger, Battle Arms short throw ambi safety, SLR Rifleworks 15″ Helix MLOK rail and Sentry adjustable gas block, ATLAS bipod, Magpul UBR stock, grip and mags, Rainier Arms UltraMatch .308 Nitride BCG with a KAK Industry dual ejector Bolt and a Vortex Optics Viper PST 4-16 FFP scope in the new Geissele Super Precision scope mount, MK Machining throw lever and scope level.

The new FALKOR Defense Blast Cap muzzle devices are now available for purchase. The Blast Cap is designed to push the blast forward away from the shooter while reducing muzzle rise and recoil. They are available in both .223/5.56 and in a version specifically tuned for 300 Blackout. Check out the pics and details below.
The Falkor Defense “Blast Cap” muzzle brake was designed specifically for short barreled rifles to both direct the concussion away from the shooter whilst eliminating muzzle travel including rise and recoil. Constructed from heat treated steel alloy and aircraft grade aluminum, the device also features interchangeable caps that will be released at a later date.
Most of you who know who FALKOR Defense is know them as the manufacturer of some amazing rifles and gun parts such as their Mirrored Ambi AR-15/AR-10 Receiver Sets, PETRA 300WM rifle, etc. FALKOR Defense has a plan to be know for much more. Behind the scenes, their “ShadowWorks” R&D team has been creating some awesome gun accessories as well and those accessories are now starting to become available for purchase.
Most recently they have started shipping their new “MANTIS” precision bipod. The MANTIS features adjustable swivel and cant and the legs can be moved forward or back independent of each other. To extend the legs you simply pull them out to the length you need and then to retract them you just push a button and they snap all the way back in.

They have also released their new “Velocity” Glock Mag Extensions that not only add capacity to your Glock Mags but give your mags a stronger base pad and the added weight can help ensure your mags drop free when empty.

Another product they have released is their MACH-15 (AR-15) and MACH-10 (AR-10) ambi charging handles. I have one of the MACH-15’s and they are extremely well built and function perfectly.

As you can see, lots of awesomeness coming out of FALKOR Defense right now and way more to come. You can check out all of the new products from FALKOR Defense at www.FALKORDefense.com.
FALKOR Defense has just announced they are now shipping their MACH 15 ambi charging handles. The MACH 15 features a large latch on both sides of the charging handle for ease of use with either hand. From personal experience with their MACH 10 (7.62 model) ambi charging handle, I can tell you these are very nice. If you are looking for an ambi charging handle that not everyone else has yet, head on over to www.FALKORDefense.com to pick one up.
MACH 15 ambidextrous charging handle by FALKOR Defense. Built for the right or left handed shooter, the MACH 10 charging handle makes charging your firearm from both sides of your receiver comfortable and easy. These charging handles allow for use of either the finger and thumb grip or the palm of the hand to be used to charge the rifle on both the strong and support side. With oversized levers on both sides it makes it ideal for firearms with optics, shooters with gloves or for the shooter that wants to take advantage of ambi control. Made in the USA from aircraft grade 7075 aluminum and steel internal parts.
FALKOR Defense has been on a hot pace, introducing one new product after another and I think you’ll see that continue throughout 2016 for them. After their huge showing at SHOT last month they came home and got back to work. First up is this new “King” Breacher Muzzle Brake. The “King” is designed for use on barrels with a 5/8-24 thread and .30-Cal ammunition such as 300BLK or .308. As with all FALKOR Defense components and rifles, this thing is built to withstand a lifetime of abuse and then some. Read more about the “King” Breacher Muzzle Brake below, then head on over to www.FALKORDefense.com to purchase one for yourself.
FALKOR Defense “King” Breacher
The “King” Breacher muzzle brake is designed with two elements in mind; kicking ass and minimizing recoil and muzzle rise. The “King” is designed specifically for .30-cal “battle rifles” utilizing a simple two port design with a diffused front baffle to help reduce back pressure. The unique 2-port tapered design combined with an internal variable diameter chamber maximizes the efficiency of gas pressure distribution while the port shape redirects the flow to eliminate muzzle rise. All FALKOR muzzle brakes are machined from 12L14 Steel and case hardened to a Rockwell hardness of 50c before the black Nitride finish process to insure longevity of the baffle integrity. The result is a simple and effective brake that will withstand the abuse of .30-caliber semi-auto use while sustaining precision on target.

FALKOR Defense really wowed a ton of people this week at SHOT Show this week. They unveiled a number of new products including their new “OPTIMUS” PDW stock, FALKOR Defense bipod, showing off the PETRA 300WM and of course the new #BALLSOHARDER movie.
The OPTIMUS PDW stock is such a cool stock. Unlike most PDW stocks, the OPTIMUS only uses one guide rod which is on the bottom, instead of on the sides. With a push of a button you can extend the stock and then the butt pad flips up.
FALKOR also introduced their new bipod. I don’t have a ton of information on the bipod just yet but it definitely looks awesome.
Of course the PETRA 300WM rifle was center stage at the FALKOR Defense booth. The PETRA 300WM is touted as the “softest shooting 300wm rifle out there” and the videos they’ve shown of it, that is probably true. A couple different models of PETRA 300WM rifles were recently released for order.
Last but not leasts is the #BALLSOHARDER movie. This was a big collaboration between FALKOR Defense and a bunch of other industry partners. You can watch the video by clicking on the image below.
If you are a fan of SI-Defense you probably have heard some rumblings about some rebranding and a possible name change. This rebranding has been way more than rumblings behind the scenes as they have been preparing to launch Falkor Defense and some awesome new products. From today forward SI-Defense will now be know as Falkor Defense to help differentiate the Firearms side of the business from the Aerospace side of the business. They have also taken this time to launch some brand new products including the new Blitz SBR, pics and details below.
THE FALKOR DEFENSE “BLITZ” SBR
This rifle will be offered in both .223 and .300 Blackout with a 10.5-inch barrel and Falkor’s new 11.5-inch “Fatty” rail. The “Fatty” rail features an Interior Diameter of 1.65 inches and will accommodate all suppressors witch exception to the OSS. The Blitz rifle ships in color Grey / Standard: Also features a Geisselle S3G trigger, Battle Arms short throw selector, Hogue grip and Mission First Minimalist Stock (shown here with the TROY PDW Stock Kit), as well as our new “Blast Cap” SBR muzzle brake which features a modular design to include various brake and diffusing caps.
THE FALKOR DEFENSE “BLAST CAP” MUZZLE BRAKE
The Blast Cap muzzle brake was designed for optimized use on SBRs to direct maximum gas and noise forward of the shooter while the braking capacity is at the tip of the muzzle. The Blast Cap is standard on the Blitz rifle – and will also be sold as an accessory for both 223 and 308 platforms. (Videos of the breaks in action to follow)
THE FALKOR DEFENSE “FATTY” RAIL
The “Fatty” rail will be available in lengths up to 18-inches for both AR15 and AR10 platforms. The AR10 version is one of the few rails on the market that will accommodate the OSS suppressor under the rail.
Most of the new information and details on the new Falkor Defense products will be posted on the Falkor Defense Instagram account and SI-Defense Facebook page.
