Sneak Peek!! Next Level Armament ELITE AR-15 Receiver Set

Posted on February 9th, 2016 by ar15news

Big thanks to Next Level Armament who shot me a sneak peek at their new ELITE AR-15 receiver set yesterday. The ELITE receiver set is a forged receiver set that has had material removed wherever possible without reducing the strength of the receiver. As you can see in the photos below they did not “skeletonize” the lower but just removed excess material creating recessed areas around important features of the lower. This won’t result in a massive amount of weight savings but there will be some and looks pretty awesome too. Although you can’t see it in this photos, the upper receiver has also received the same treatment as they have machined out the center of the 12 o’clock rail section and added their logo on the top at the charging handle opening.

While a receiver set like this from some other companies would break the bank, Next Level Armament will be offering these as matched sets for just $225. I was told they will have a few hundred back from anodizing and ready to ship by Wednesday (2-17-16) of next week. This is a great option for anyone looking for something a bit different than the run of the mill forged receiver set without paying the big bucks for a billet set.

KAK Industry Adds 3 New 9mm Barrels To Their Value Line

Posted on February 6th, 2016 by ar15news

KAK Industry does a ton of OEM work for other companies, especially a lot of barrels. Since they’re already machining tons of barrels they decided to start offering a value line of barrels last year which has grown into a very large selection of available barrels. These barrels all have a Melonite finish inside and out are very well made. These are the type of barrels you would see on shelves for $175-200 all day long but because KAK Industry makes these themselves the price is usually closer to $100 and some times less. With the growing popularity of Pistol Caliber ARs, specifically 9mm, it was only a matter of time that KAK added 9mm barrels to the list.

KAK Industry just released 3 new 9mm barrels. These barrels are a 4″, 8″ and 16″. All have a Melonite finish, 1/2×36 threads and 1:10 Twist. As with pretty much all 9mm AR barrels, these are all Straight Blowback which means they do not require a Gas Block or Gas Tube. One of the most impressive points is that they start at just $80. Links and pics below.

Last month we helped introduced the new Centurion Arms CMR rails with KeyMod or M-LOK attachment systems. This was something Centurion Arms customers have been asking for for a long time and now they can get it. Centurion Arms promised a pre-order in early February and they weren’t messing around. Starting today, you can now pre-order a 13″ or 15″ CMR rail with your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, they are also offering them at an introductory price of $195 for 13″ and $200 for the 15″.

Head on over to www.CenturionArms.com and get your order in for these really awesome rails. They should be shipping by the end of the month.

Photos of the new Agency Arms “CLASSIFIED” Rifle

Posted on January 27th, 2016 by ar15news

At SHOT Show 2016, Agency Arms announced a partnership between themselves and PWS (Primary Weapon Systems) to offer the Agency Arms Project CLASSIFIED DI rifle. I got permission to share the following photos that as far as I know have not been fully published yet. Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics and Agency Arms said this regarding the new rifle…

“Everybody knows there’s ARs all over the place. Why would you choose one brand over another brand? Quality is quality. But there are features on the AR platform that can be improved and when people get together and start thinking about them they find new ways to do things that some people just didn’t think of before. Some times its a little fix, some times its something potentially revolutionary. Not gonna use the word game changer but what I will say is this rifle brings a lot of value added products to the platform that are gonna be something that you might prefer in a rifle system if you’re looking for a new one.” – Aaron Cowan, Sage Dynamics

KAK Industry – LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer

Posted on January 26th, 2016 by ar15news

I have a few LR-308 rifles, two of which I have personally built myself. Both of those rifles I wanted to run a standard AR-15 stock and buffer tube on instead of say a .308 PRS. Not only is it nice to have the option to swap stocks with any of my other ARs or to use stocks such as the Magpul UBR but the AR-15 buffer tube is slightly shorter than the AR-10 buffer tube making it a bit more compact. I’ve shown this setup to tons of people and they love it. To do this I’ve used what is called an LR-308 Carbine Buffer and the LR-308 Carbine Spring.

So far so good but I’ve been thinking about increasing the buffer weight to reduce felt recoil a bit and just make it even smoother. My current buffers weigh in at just 3.8 ounces which is pretty light. Most LR-308 Heavy Buffers are close to $100 so last night, when KAK Industry told me about there new LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer, I was all ears. 

As you may already know, KAK Industry makes all of their parts in house so they not only make sure their Quality Control is top notch but also they can pass on the savings to their customers. The new KAK LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer is made from superior 304 grade stainless steel for durability, hardness, and longevity vs the typical 303 grade stainless steel. They also have solid tungsten cores and weigh 5.5 ounces. Whats even more impressive is that they are selling them at just $55 each. At that price it is a no-brainer to upgrade to the heavy buffer.

These are available for purchase now. I literally just ordered some other parts from KAK Industry last night and should have added a couple of these too. If you’ve got an 308 AR or are in the process of building one, and want to run an AR-15 buffer tube on it, my suggestion is to go with this LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer and an LR-308 Carbine Buffer Spring. KAK Industry is an awesome small business to show some support to.
