Sneak Peek – LANTAC SPADA-M Handguard

Posted on February 10th, 2017 by ar15news

Lantac is about to release their new M-LOK version of their popular SPADA handguard and we’ve got some pictures. The new M-LOK models will be available in two variations, the SPADA-ML and SPADA-M. Basically the SPADA-ML removes the raised QD sling attachment points to reduce weight. The SPADA-M is shown below. Looks like I need to start planning a new build. 🙂

Lantac SPADA-M Handguard MLOK 1

Lantac Spada-M & Spada-ML Hanguards are precision machined from extruded 6061-T6 alloy. Anodized Type3 Class2 Hard Coat.
Key clamping areas screw holes are reinforced with Helicoil inserts.
Durable and robust design with ultra narrow diameter, 1.55” OD.

The Spada-M features ambidextrous QD mounting points as found in the Spada-S while the Spada-ML (Lighter Version) has these removed to reduce weight further.

New lightening cuts in the handguard create and distinctive design look and reduced weight, M-Lok slots machined into the 3, 6 & 9ocklock surfaces allow fast and secure mounting of your accessories.

Muzzle facing notches allow mounting of BMD’s closer to the end of the handguard too.

Zero protrusion over upper receivers allows the handguard to be mounted to any upper regardless of its shape or size.
Patented anti slip and rotation system, strengthens the handguard in the barrel nut area and allows strong clamping force to be applied to the barrel nut itself.
The handguard cannot be removed from the barrel nut without removing all three fixing screws.
Screws are grade 8 Steel, Black Oxide Finish.

Do I Really Need Another Receiver Set?? I’m Thinking Yes!!

Posted on November 13th, 2016 by ar15news

Usually I would not say I “NEED” another receiver set but thanks to LANTAC leaking pics of their new LA-SF15 Forged Upper and Lower set I can confirm…I do actually need another receiver set! 🙂 Knowing LANTAC as well as I do, the LA-SF15 set is sure to be about as high quality as a forged receiver set gets. No word yet on actual specifics or features but you know I’ll be pestering them for the details this week for sure. Until then, take a look at the pics of the new LA-SF15 Forged Upper and Lower set below.

LANTAC .308/7.62×51 E-BCG – Now Available

Posted on August 14th, 2016 by ar15news

By now most people are familiar with the LANTAC E-BCG. I personally use it in my suppressed SBR and it is simply an amazing BCG. They’ve been leaking pics of the .308/7.62×51 version for a while now and all of a sudden…the big boys are finally available. Make no mistake, this is not your average BCG and is priced accordingly. If you’re looking for simply the best .308 BCG, this is it. Pics and details are below. 

Lantac 308 E-BCG 1Lantac 308 E-BCG 1

AR10 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time.
Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a 9310 Precision Hard Ground, Magnetically Particle Inspected Bolt.
The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings.
This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 Rockwell C.
The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier.
This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse.
In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.
The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s position within the buffer tube at the time of cycling and allows for a flatter more controlled reciprocation of the assembly.
All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat.
All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360-H™ patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx).
The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver.
The BCG’s weight helps to increase lock time with smoother operation.
Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

The E-BCG’s forward porting and unique shape assist in reducing pressurization inside the upper receiver that can be caused by short barrel rifles running suppressors.
However, it should be noted that the E-BCG™ is not a complete solution for this issue and all rifles are different. ‘Over Gassed’ guns will suffer to a larger extent from this problem.

– Weight 1Lb 2.1oz
– Forward Porting, Enlarged Vents.
– Balanced flared boss.
– 8620 Carrier, Heat Treated, Hard Turned.

LANTAC 308 “Heavy” E-BCG

Posted on May 20th, 2016 by ar15news

LANTAC has been working on the new .308 (Heavy) Version of their E-BCG for some time now and they just announced it is now in production. The E-BCG is simply one of the best AR15 BCG’s on the market and now you’re looking at possibly the best AR10 BCG out there as well. Time will tell but I am expecting great things from the E-BCG “Heavy”. Not sure on price just yet but if the price of the AR15 E-BCG is any indicator, it’s not going to be cheap. We’ll keep you up to speed as more information regarding the E-BCG Heavy is released.

If you own a LANTAC Dragon 5.56 muzzle brake, chances are you are anxiously waiting the release of their new BMD or Blast Mitigation Device. The BMD is a quick detach shroud that lets you keep the benefits of the muzzle brake (reduction in recoil and muzzle rise) while forcing the concussion associated with using a muzzle brake forward of the shooter. LANTAC has been perfecting their design for some time and have finally settled on a two piece design which includes a collar that attaches to the muzzle brake and then the BMD attaches to the collar. This collar design allowed them to create the rock solid attachment system they felt was needed for the BMD while still making it compatible with the thousands of Dragon muzzle brakes that are already on end user rifles. Best news of the day…the new BMDs are now in production and a limited number have been made available for preorder. If you would like more information or would like to get in on the preorder, head on over to www.LANTAC-USA.com.

New Products Just Introduced from LANTAC USA

Posted on October 28th, 2015 by ar15news

LANTAC USA just introduced a few new products which are a billet Upper Side Charger (USC), Side Charger E-BCG (Piston and DI) with modular charging hand and an extended Side Charging Handle assembly. Check out the pics and details below.

LANTAC Upper Side Charger (USC)
The LANTAC USC is basically a side charging version of their popular UAR upper. It utilizes their Domed Cam Pin design (will work with our without their Domed Cam Pin) and looks to be another quality upper option from LANTAC. These are available for purchase now at www.LANTAC-USA.com.

LANTAC USC Side Charger Upper

LANTAC Side Charger E-BCG
I have a standard E-BCG and it is hands down one of the nicest BCGs I own. With the introduction of the new Side Charger Upper, it makes sense that they would introduce a side charging version of their E-BCG. The new Side Charger E-BCG has a really cool modular side charging handle and will also be available in both Piston and Direct Impingement (DI) versions. These are in production now.

LANTAC Side Charger E-BCG

LANTAC Extended Side Charging Handle
I remember seeing the Extended Side Charging Handle on one of LANTAC’s UK rifles and thought it was pretty cool. It basically mounts to the same spot on the Side Charger E-BCG as the standard handle but has a Fast Attach/Detach system with an arm that projects rearward. It also features a modular handle setup like the Side Charger E-BCG comes with. These are not available yet but are in production now.

CMC Triggers are undisputed as the finest AR triggers in the world. Precision engineered, hand built, hand tested before they are sent out to market set them apart from other manufacturers.

LANTAC USA .308 E-BCG’s Coming Soon

Posted on July 6th, 2015 by ar15news

LANTAC USA has posted a photo on their Facebook page eluding to the fact that they will soon offer their extremely popular E-BCG in a .308 version very soon. It seriously would be nearly impossible to find a nicer BCG than the LANTAC E-BCG. Having an AR-10 model would be a very welcomed addition to the growing lineup from LANTAC. Keep an eye on the LANTAC USA Instagram and Facebook page for more updates. I will be sure to keep you guys in the know as well.  

If you’d like more information regarding LANTAC’s already available AR-15 E-BCG you can get that HERE.

LANTAC .308 E-BCGYou can just barley see the rear end of the LANTAC .308 E-BCG poking out of the upper in this photo.

Over the weekend my friends from LANTAC sent me some pics from a video they’re currently working on which features the much anticipated LANTAC BMD, aka the Blast Mitigation Device. The BMD slides over and locks onto the LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake to redirect the blast. If you’ve seen any of the previous LANTAC videos you know that they feature amazing high speed footage and these action shots of the BMD are absolutely amazing. You can really see how well it redirects the blast forward of the shooter while still getting some of the benefits of the Dragon brake underneath through the use of vents and holes above the Dragon’s vertical ports. 

I’m a huge fan of the LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake and well…basically anything LANTAC has made so far. Really looking forward to giving the BMD once it comes out. Until then, we’ll just have to drool over these awesome pics below. Look for the full HD video to come soon.

First is a shot of the blast from a LANTAC Dragon WITHOUT the BMD in place.

These next few shots show the BMD in action on a couple of different ARs. You can easily see that it makes quite a difference in reducing the side blast.
