Great Start to a Decent Quality Budget AR Build

Posted on May 24th, 2016 by ar15news

This week I’ll be posting some Memorial Day Sales that come into my inbox. I personally don’t mind sharing Memorial Day Sales that are running all week but I refuse to share them on Memorial Day as that is a day or remembrance of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. 

PSA just announced the beginning of some of their Memorial Day Sales. PSA in the past has had a lackluster reputation because of longer shipping times but if you read their most recent reviews that is an area they have really worked on and I’ve personally bought stuff and been plenty happy with the service. The deals are well worth the wait anyways. One of the first deals they announced is a 16″ Mid Length 5.56 NATO 1:7 Melonite MOE Rifle Kit.  

PSA Memorial Day Sale

Barrel: 16″ barrel length Chambered in 5.56 NATO, with a 1:7 twist, M4 barrel extension, and a mid-length gas system. The A2-style profile barrel is melonite finished for durability. Barrel is finished off with an .750″ diameter F-marked front sight base with sling swivel, Magpul MOE Black Handguards and an A2 flash hider.

Upper: Forged 7075-T6 A3 AR upper is hard coat anodized black for durability. Featuring M4 feedramp cuts, T-marks, these upper upper receivers are made for us right here in the USA.

Bolt Carrier Group: For AR15 and M16 rifles and carbines. Bolt is made of shot-peened, Mil-spec Carpenter 158® steel. Gas key is secured with grade 8 fasteners and staked. Bolt carrier is parkerized outside and chrome lined inside. Includes Charging Handle.

Lower Build Kit: Includes the PSA MOE Lower Build Kit

Memorial Day Price:  $419.99 with FREE SHIPPING

This thing is just $420 and qualifies for Free Shipping through Memorial Day or until they are out of stock. Add in a stripped lower and you’re looking at a Sub-$500 AR build with very good quality components including Magpul furniture and a Melonite barrel. Here is the direct link to this kit.  http://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-16-midlength-5-56-nato-1-7-socom-melonite-moe-rifle-kit-7780444.html

If you are on an even tighter budget, they do have a PTAC build kit for about $70 less but it doesn’t have any Magpul stuff, no Melonite barrel and although the reviews are 5 Stars I have heard some issues quality wise regarding the PTAC parts. I would personally recommend the kit at the link above. 

Also, I know some will assume I get paid for articles like this but I don’t. I do not know a single person at PSA and almost never write about their deals because they only last for one day.  This post is simply telling you guys about a good deal I ran across. Just putting it all out there. 🙂

Magpul DAKA Pouches – Now Shipping in BLACK

Posted on April 20th, 2016 by ar15news

You asked and Magpul listened! The world’s toughest utility pouches are now available in black. Magpul DAKA pouches come in Small, Medium and Large and are ultra durable, water resistant pouches designed to bring organization to the dirty, dusty world we live and play in. Only question now is… What color will be next?

Magpul recently released info on the new PRS (Precision Rifle Stock) Gen2 that will be released later this summer. Its always nice to see new models of very popular products come out but it also means its time to look for some good deals on the Gen1 parts if you like them. Personally I love the PRS Gen1 stock and have a couple myself and now I might have to stockpile a few of them for future builds because I just got an email from Rainier Arms letting me know they have all of their Magpul PRS Gen1 stocks for both AR-15 and AR-10 on sale. When you go to the site it shows the usual $242.25 price but if you add it to your cart the price drops down to just $193.80 for an AR-15 or AR-10 version. That’s a smoking deal for an awesome stock. I just ordered an AR-10 version for one of my rifles and most likely will snag another couple AR-15 models for future use. Just passing along the savings to my friends.

Magpul Introduces Three New Stocks

Posted on January 18th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’re an AR owner, 2016 is definitely off to an awesome start. We’re just half way through the month of January and Magpul has already introduced an upgraded version of three of their stocks. Both the UBR and PRS got a nice facelift and a new version of the MOE SL stock called the MOE SL-S adds storage.

First up is the Magpul UBR Gen3. The UBR Gen2 still bears a resemblance of the UBR we’ve all love but is a bit lighter, a bit stronger….and a bit faster? You’ll also like the lower MSRP of just $199.95. Check out the pics and watch the video below.

The Magpul PRS Gen3 also has similar looks to the PRS Gen2 but it definitely has a more streamlined look to it. It also features a new adjustable butt pad, additional sling mount options and a wider range of rifle compatibility. This could be “The Most Interesting Stock”.

Last but not least is the Magpul MOE SL-S. The MOE SL-S is an upgraded version of the MOE SL stock that now features battery storage compartments on each side of the stock. For a “storage” stock the MOE SL-S is very low profile because of how Magpul positioned the tubes. This should be a great low-cost, feature rich stock.

Magpul Introduces TWO New Products

Posted on October 7th, 2015 by ar15news

Magpul continues to pump out brand new products. Last night they introduced two new products that look pretty awesome. 

First up is the new M-LOK Rail Covers Type-1. These rail covers install into M-LOK slots without any adapters or screws. Just snap in. The material is a very heat resistant and offers added grip surface on the rail. Each cover is 9.5″ in length and can cover 6 M-LOK slots and can be cut for different configurations. These come in a 2-pack for $16 at www.Magpul.com

The second new product is the new Enhanced AR Magazine Release. This will replace the mag release button on your rifle with one that has two additional holes in it. Once installed you then bolt on the Enhanced Mag Release button. The button is easily twice the size of standard AR mag release buttons giving you plenty of surface to release your mag. It will also work great for younger shooters or anyone with short fingers who have a hard time reaching the mag release. These are just $20 at www.Magpul.com

Magpul Phasing Out All Foliage Green Parts – Save 30%

Posted on September 17th, 2015 by ar15news

Just yesterday, Magpul revealed it will be discontinuing the use of Foliage Green in their product lineup and has placed a 30% discount on all Foliage items. It doesn’t come as too much of a surprise with the popularity of the traditional Black or ever popular FDE furniture. However, Foliage is definitely a great looking color option for you AR that just never caught on as well as others. If you’re looking to outfit your AR with a fresh set of accessories or have been wanting to do a Foliage build, you might want to consider doing it now. The 30% discount applies to all Foliage colored products and does not require any discount code. Check it out now at www.Magpul.com.

Magpul Foliage Green discontinued

We’ve offered most of our products in foliage green for many years now and have found it to be a versatile color. However, with the expansion of the product line, we’ve decided to phase it out and make room for new items. Take advantage of discount pricing on all foliage accessories while supplies last.

Magpul MBUS PRO LR Adjustable Rear Sight On Sale

VF Gunrunners is offering a deal on the Magpul MBUS PRO LR which has a built in elevation adjustment wheel with preset detents at 50 meter increments all the way out to 600 meters. As always, buying a rear sight is always more expensive than buying a front sight…just because. Normal retail on this sight is $129.95 but the sale price right now is $98.95 with FREE SHIPPING. I don’t know about you but I really appreciate companies that offer free shipping on stuff. It takes the guess work out of “Am I really getting a good deal?”. While you’re there you can also pick up a front sight too.

NEW!! Magpul QDM Sling Swivel Video

Posted on April 1st, 2015 by ar15news

Magpul just released a video showing off their new Magpul QDM Sling Swivel. The QDM Sling Swivel with a dual push button release that allows the user to pinch both buttons to release the sling instead of pushing in on the middle button. The QDM Sling Swivel can not be removed unless both buttons are pinched at the same time preventing accidental removal. Check out the video below for more information.

–  2-point engagement prevents accidental release.
–  Optimized bale for sling management
–  Fits all standard sized QD cups
–  Designed to work with 1 1/4” slings
–  Superior corrosion resistance
–  Made in U.S.A.
