I’ve built tons of AR-15 uppers and a good majority of them use Low Profile Gas Blocks with set screws and a few are pinned to the barrel. A couple of things I’ve learned with experience is that I always use Loctite on the set screws and whenever possible, I prefer to have the barrel dimpled for the set screw to seat in properly and really lock the gas block in place. It always amazes me when I spend good money on a barrel only to find that they didn’t take the time to dimple the barrel on the bottom side of the gas block seat and it happens more often than not.
The guys over at Parallax Tactical have found a way to make great use of their blemished Low Pro Gas Blocks by installing a Cone Point Set Screw that locks into the Gas Port of the barrel and a Hardened Steel Drill Bushing that allows you to use a simple hand drill and Cobalt 11/64th drill bit to dimple your barrels and in the exact right place every time.
These come as a complete kit, including the 11/64th Cobalt Drill Bit and is available for both .750 and .625 gas block journal diameters. The entire kit will sell for just $49.95 and can be used over and over again. Order one for yourself today at www.WeaponOutfitters.com. I’m going to!
Presenting a REAL gas block dimpling jig. (compare to BRD with no drill bushing, limited use. We had to buy three-four of them before we found it cheaper just to use our reject gas blocks.)
Comes with a hardened steel drill bushing, a cobalt 11/64th drill bit and a cone point #10-32 cone point set screw which positively locates the gas port for a perfectly lined up dimple directly beneath the gas port for optimum function and security for all low profile gas blocks.
Comes in 750 and 625 gas block journal sizes.
A while back my buddy Roy over at Weapon Outfitters built me a 13.7″ upper with a pinned and welded BE Meyers 249F Flash Hider that has become one of my personal favorite uppers. The BE Meyers 249F flash hiders is amazing and the 16.1 overall length feels just right. You can see a picture of it below. Since then Roy has partnered with Micro MOA to offer a “Weapon Outfitters” branded barrel that is supposed to be pretty awesome. If you’re looking for something a bit different than the usual 18″, 16″ and 14.5″ uppers, this is the start to another great option.
Weapon Outfitters has partnered with Micro MOA to deliver new 13.7″ Barrels to market. When paired with a B.E. Meyers 249F Flash hider (or other long muzzle device like a KX5) you can achieve a 16.1″ overall length (OAL) to meet Federal guidelines. Save a little bit of weight while also toting the smallest possible carbine before you get into NFA territory.
With this bundle, you’ll select the gas block you want to pair with your barrel and which version of the 249F you’d like. Our gunsmith will handle the rest, pinning your muzzle device and staking your gas block. Gunsmithing options can be deselected if you’ve got the means. It is your responsiblity to understand the local, state, and federal laws if you choose this route to make sure you’re all hunky-dorry.

LMT recently introduced their new DMR stocks. Many people have said “They’re just copying the Magpul PRS”, etc but in actuality they’ve made it possible for the 99% of owners who currently have a collapsible stock on their AR to add upgrade to precision style stock similar to a PRS but without the need to change over to a rifle buffer tube, spring and buffer. You can literally take off your collapsible stock, slip on the new LMT DRM stock and have the feel of a fixed precision rifle stock. This saves you the cost and time of swapping receiver extensions and would be pretty awesome for someone who has a single lower receiver but multiple uppers such as an SBR upper and an SPR upper. Weapon Outfitters has the 5.56 version available in-stock right now and at about $30 cheaper than other retailers that I’ve seen. Check out the pics and details below then head on over to www.WeaponOutfitters.com to purchase one for yourself.
DMR buttstock assembly for 5.56 rifle fits in mil spec extension tube NOT included – SOPMOD cheek rest for comfort and a better shooting postion – Adjustable by 45 positions in cheek well height and length of pull and two postions on the extension tube. – SOPMOD rubber butt plate reduces felt recoil – Concealed rail for mono-pod attachment – 2 QD sling swivel sockets Collapsed length 9.20″
This is probably one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time. Got a sweet little SBR or AR Pistol lower just laying around waiting for the right upper? THIS is what you’ve been waiting for! Weapon Outfitters just got in some of the Primary Weapon Systems 7″ Piston Driven Pistol Uppers that come with an awesome briefcase that has custom foam cutouts inside that will house the Upper, an Aimpoint, a Lower and two Mags. Its even available in both .223 Wylde and 762×39. This is so stinking cool and I want one BAD!! Check it out over at WeaponOutfitters.com.
This bundle comes with your choice of PWS 7 inch upper in 2.23 Wylde or 7.62×39 and a Kenneth Cole Reaction “Changed the Lock” Briefcase that fits the upper and a pistol lower along with a couple magazines.*
*Pistol Lower and Magazines not included.
You could likely fit in your registered SBR lower but you might need to cut the foam a bit to fit. Also has a pre-cut segment you can remove that is the right size for an AImpoint T1.
My buddy Roy at Weapon Outfitters just posted on his Facebook page that the B.E. Meyers 249F 5.56 Flash Hider will now have a Melonite coating which is awesome as it Melonite offers great corrosion resistance and is applied inside and out of the entire piece. The 249F is an awesome flash hider that has been used in Military/Special Operations for years now and was recently made available to civilians as well primarily through Weapon Outfitters. I have one pinned to my 13.7″ Weapon Outfitters upper (16″ OAL) and its very impressive. If you’re looking for a great Flash Hider, this would definitely be one that I would recommend.
New and Improved for 2014!
After nearly 2 decades of service, and STILL a top tier flash hider according to JSOC and Vuurwapen Blog, the BE Meyers 249F is now MELONITED for superior corrosion resistance and surface hardness!
There’s no doubt the Magpul MBUS Pro sights have quickly become a fan favorite. The quality metal construction, fantastic looks and compact design at a more affordable price all played into their popularity. However many of us have been hoping that Magpul would come out with different color version of the MBUS Pro such as FDE, OD Green, etc. As of right now I do not believe Magpul has any plans to release colored factory sets which is why our good friends at Weapon Outfitters are now making this possible as shown below. Finally you can have some Magpul MBUS Pro’s that match your non-black rifle and furniture.
Weapon Outfitters is working with a Master Gunsmith/Injured Vet to apply Cerakote to some Magpul MBUS Pro’s and currently has some FDE sights in-stock. You can purchase both the front and rear FDE sight set at the links below.
If you are like myself and already have a set or two of Magpul MBUS Pro and would like to have them Cerakoted, Weapon Outfitters now offers that as an upgrade service as well. You can have a single sight done or save $5 per sight when you do a front and rear set. They are offering this service in FDE, Burnt Bronze, Graphite Black, Sniper Gray and Olive Drab.
I wanted to show you guys a quick visual comparison between two of my favorite Geissele rails, the SMR MK4 and SMR MK5. Both are fairly new (released in the last year) and I know it can be hard to figure out what’s what just by looking at the “MKX” naming system. The Geissele SMR MK4 and MK5 are some of the most solidly built KeyMod rails out there. As you’ll see below, you can’t go wrong with either one as they both are awesome options. Click on the images for a larger view.
GEISSELE AUTOMATICS SMR (SUPER MODULAR RAIL) MK4
First lets look at the MK4. The Geissele SMR MK4 is kind of a hybrid rail. It has KeyMod mounting slots at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions with small 1913 picatinny rail sections up front at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and a full length picatinny rail at 12 o’clock as well. There are a few other rails like this on the market and as weird as it may seem it makes a lot of sense. The number one best selling KeyMod accessory is…the 1913 rail sections which people always mount toward the front of a KeyMod rail.
One of the main reasons people are hesitant to switch from their quad rails over to a new system such as KeyMod is because they have so many “Quad Rail” accessories, especially light mounts. The MK4 allows you to have an integrated quad rail section to mount your lights to while offering KeyMod slots to use for the popular Rail Covers from companies like Noveske, etc. I’ve personally found that the Geissele rails are so well finished that I don’t even need any rail covers.
I really dig the look of the MK4. Just something about the use of both 1913 and KeyMod just looks cool. As you can see in the pictures below, it makes for one awesome looking rifle and offers a super solid rail with lots of options. The MK4 would be perfect for those who are either on the fence about 1913 vs KeyMod or those who have specific 1913 light mounts, bipods, etc. that you want to still use and don’t want to buy extra mounts to make them compatible.
GEISSELE AUTOMATICS SMR (SUPER MODULAR RAIL) MK5
Now lets take a look at the MK5. The Geissele SMR MK5 is built how KeyMod was designed to be used with KeyMod mounting slots all the way out to the tip of the rail. This gives you the most flexibility with mounting KeyMod accessories such as Light Mounts, Handstops, QD Sling Mounts, rail sections, etc.
As you’ll notice, the KeyMod slots are at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions with a full length picatinny rail section at 12 o’clock like the MK4 does. Both rails look very similar, however with the MK5 there are no short rail sections at the the front of the rail and there are no front QD Sling Mounts. This design is all about letting the “KeyMod Convert” have as much flexibility as possible in mounting their new KeyMod accessories.
As I mentioned before, there really is not wrong decision to be made here. I love both of these rails. Its more of a personal preference thing when it comes to deciding between these two rails. Both feature the amazingly high degree of quality you would expect to find with a Geissele rail and look freaking sweet.
I had planned on waiting for Geissele to get the newer MK5’s in-stock but they are such a hot item I decided to just give you a link to a Geissele dealer and AR15NEWS friend, Weapon Oufitters, since they have both the MK4 and MK5 in-stock right now. That way if you like what you see you can pick one up for yourself. I’ve also put some information below for great KeyMod accessories too.
You can purchase the Geissele SMR MK4 and MK5 rails at www.WeaponOutfitters.com
As always, you can peruse the Geissele.com website as well but with the high demand of these rails they are not all in-stock.

The Parallax Tactical FFSSR KeyMod rail has been a very popular option for those looking for a quality rail without breaking the bank. Up until the other day the longest model available was just 13″ long. Now Parallax is releasing the 15″ model and with so many people waiting for these, I’m pretty sure they’ll go quick. These rails are shipping to dealers now and the guys at Weapon Outfitters are offering a special pre-order price of just $189 which is a steal for a 15″ high quality rail. Check out the pics below, then head on over to www.WeaponOutfitters.com to order yours.
