NEW!! SI-Defense Releases Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set

Posted on October 30th, 2014 by ar15news

In the AR world there are lots of partially ambi receiver sets but that typically just means that they have an ambi bolt release lever. To me thats not really an ambi receiver because you’re still multiple other features that aren’t ambi. I know I’m obviously not the first to feel like that and I can guarantee you that is exactly what SI-Defense was thinking when they started designing their new Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set.

One of the first things you’ll notice is that both sides of the lower receiver look exactly the same. The brain trust at SI-Defense did this on purpose to ensure your body gets used to doing the same exact thing whether you’re shooting with your right or left hand. These mirrored features include an Ambi Mag Release, Ambi Index Finger Grooves and a complete Bolt Catch Assembly on both sides giving you a true Ambi Bolt Hold function which is absolutely priceless when clearing malfunctions (I know you’ve heard me preach about that before).

Upon further inspection you’ll also see that they have also included a Pivot Pin Spring Housing on both sides of the lower receiver. That’s right! This new receiver set even offers an ambi Pivot Pin and Takedown Pin system which is something I don’t remember ever seeing before. A couple of other neat features are the Quick Release Dust Cover Assembly and a Threaded Forward Assist Pin Hole.

So as you can see, this is a very well thought out design that looks just as good. I’ve also heard there will be an AR-15 version of this available as well so keep an eye out for that. SI-Defense is currently taking pre-orders for this new Ambi .308 Billet Set. Head on over to their brand new website at www.SI-Defense.com or call 406-752-4253 to place your pre-order.

**The receiver set includes dust cover, ambi bolt catch, ambi mag release. Forward assist, takedown pins and ambi selector not included but are available for sale in the Parts and Accessories section of their web store.

Usually when you purchase a mount for your Aimpoint Micro mount you have to decide if you want an Absolute Co-Witness mount or a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness mount. Not many companies offer a mount that can be configured for both but that is exactly what Daniel Defense just released. The new mount looks very similar to their already very popular Aimpoint Micro Mount but now comes with an Absolute Co-Witness base and a bolt on spacer that converts the mount to a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness height mount. Now you don’t have to figure out which model you prefer and no need to buy multiple mounts. Check out the pics and details for the new mount below, then head on over to www.DanielDefense.com to purchase one for yourself.

The newest generation of the Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount gives users the option of both an absolute or lower 1/3 co-witness with iron sights and Aimpoint’s popular Micro R-1, H-1, T-1, or T-2 optics. Its light weight, essentials-only design offers a snag-free, low-profile, reversible mounting option for shooters that do not require or desire a quick attach/detach mount. The mount features a recoil lug which interfaces with the bottom of the optic and prevents the energy from recoil and counter recoil from transferring to and damaging the factory mounting screws. This further increases durability and ensures a repeatable zero shot after shot. The Aimpoint® Micro Mount features our Patented Rock & Lock® attachment system and secures to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail with two slotted machine screws. These fasteners thread into stainless steel self-locking threaded inserts that resist vibration and loosening. Offering absolute or a lower 1/3 co-witness with your back-up iron sights, this mount is ideal for shooters who are looking for the lightest mount to accent their Aimpoint® Micro. In order to achieve a lower 1/3 co-witness, the user includes the spacer with the mount when installing the optic. For an absolute co-witness, simply install optic without the spacer. The Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount has been proven to be one of the most durable and light weight mounts available.

-  Absolute or lower 1/3rd co-witness
–  Recoil Lug Interface between mount and optic
–  Snag Free and reversible

These rifles have the Wilson Combat performance you can trust along with our best-in-industry 100% Customer Satisfaction pledge.

A Word From Bill…
“The goal of the Wilson Combat team was to design and build a premium quality lightweight .308 platform carbine that is accurate and reliable with minimum weight and bulk, I think we have successfully achieved our goal.

Personally I have never been a fan of the .308 platform AR due to weight and a lot of square edges on the ones I’ve handled, I believe the Wilson Combat design team has resolved these issues and produced an extremely user friendly carbine.

Even though AR carbines in 5.56, 6.8 SPC and .458 SOCOM do most of what I need in a ranch rifle, the added range with knock down power of the .308 will certainly come in handy from time to time.”

NEW!! XTech Tactical ATG (Adjustable Tactical Grip) for AR15

Posted on October 22nd, 2014 by ar15news

The new XTech Tactical ATG (Adjustable Tactical Grip) could be the One Grip To Rule Them All! One thing you’ll notice all over the internet when looking for a new grip for your AR-15 is that many of them come in different angles. Some are more of a vertical grip, some are more angled than others but none of them are perfect for every situation or rifle. That’s where the ATG comes in. The ATG is allows you to loosen the pistol grip screw, adjust the angle of the grip to where you want it and then tighten it back down where it will stay because of the interlocking teeth. The best part is that there’s no gimmick. Its a good looking grip, that allows you to adjust the grip to be comfortable for your specific needs and it actually costs less than a lot of popular aftermarket grips. Rainier Arms has secured the first shipment of grips from XTech Tactical and has them at a special introductory price of just $16.95 a piece. At that price, I will definitely be giving the ATG a try. Head on over to www.RainierArms.com and give the new XTech Tactical ATG a try.

The Science of ATG Comfort

When XTech Tactical’s design team set out to create the most comfortable AR15 grip they looked at it from every angle. The resulting ATG (Adjustable Tactical Grip) is the new standard for comfort in the industry. Not only does its shape contribute to comfort, so does its position.

The team studied the firearms market for standout grips both outside and within the AR platform. The primary lessons for shape are “Subtle finger grooves” provide a sense of placement for any size hand.

The rear of the grip has a “slight palm swell” that nests into your hand for better comfort and control. The rear wall of the grip extends downward as low as possible to maximize the hand’s purchase and support.

Finally, the texture was carefully selected and placed to balance control and comfort. The rest of the details are in the 3D shape which was optimized using prototypes and user testing.

The most unique feature of the ATG is the adjust ability of the grip’s angle. This is an acknowledgement by XTech Tactical’s design team that there is a wide range of shooting styles and shooter sizes.

The ability to change angles of the grip can relieve stress on the shooter’s wrist.
–  17 degree: Modern shooting techniques, “elbows in” stance
–  25 degree: Great “middle option”
–  33 degree: “A2 grip” originally seen 1960’s with “elbows out”

These elements all work together to make this very likely the most comfortable grip you will ever try and the last grip you will ever need to purchase.

Purchase for just $16.95 now at RainierArms.com
