Today we finally got some good intel on the new Northtech Defense barrels we’ve been patiently waiting for. I’ve talked to Dustin at NTD quite a few times and, like the mad scientist he is, he’s been fine tuning these things for months. Rainier Arms will get the introductory first run of barrels which will be offered in both a 10.5″ and 16″ length with the option of a 1/7 or 1/8 twist. All of the barrels will be made of 416R Stainless Steel with 5 cut ultra-precision button rifling and chambered in .223 Wylde which is a hybrid chamber that helps increase the accuracy of a 5.56 NATO bullet. These barrels should shoot lights out. The 16″ barrel even comes with a SUB-MOA Guarantee, no questions asked. If you’re an AR owner you know you’re already thinking about building another rifle. Definitely put one of these barrels on your list of ones to check out. Plenty of pics and details listed below. I’ve also put links to the individual pages for purchase info as well. Get ready to take advantage of these awesome introductory prices as soon as the status changes to “In-Stock” which should happen some time later today.

Awhile back Rainier Arms came out with a great combo set which included their high quality mil spec M4 Forged Upper Receiver (includes forward assist and dust cover), a Rainier Arms Raptor ambi charging handle and a Rainier Arms Full Auto BCG. By bundling these together you can save over $50 on some really high quality parts for your build. At that time these sold out really fast.

New!! Rainier Arms Piston Uppers – Smoking Hot Deals

Posted on March 27th, 2014 by ar15news

Rainier Arms recently launched a line of complete Piston AR-15 Uppers that they have hand built using their high quality Rainier Arms parts and Adams Arms Mid Length Piston kits. I know what you’re thinking because I thought it too. “Oh great. Another expensive Piston upper”. Thankfully that is not the case.

Rainier Arms Force Piston Upper

The Rainier Arms Piston Series uppers all feature the new VooDoo Innovations Melonite coated barrels, Rainier Arms Compensator (RAC), Rainier Arms Milspec upper and the Adams Arms Complete Piston Kit including BCG and Charging Handle. They are offering two models, the Base and the Force. Both models come in your choice of 14.5″ and 16″ lengths. The Base is exactly what you would assume, a more basic upper with standard plastic hand guards. The Force model upgrades to one of the brand new Rainier Arms Force KeyMod rails. 

Base Piston 5.56 Uppers in both 14.5″ and 16″ models are priced at just $575 each. The upgrade to a Rainier Arms Force KeyMod rail only costs another $120. Check out the pictures and details below. If I were had some extra funds for a new upper this would definitely be at the top of the list. Links to purchase are listed below. Get on it before everyone finds out about these and they sell out.
