I ran across this graphic on the Geissele Automatics Facebook page today and wanted to share it with you guys. I’ll be the first to admit I have been a little out of the loop on the Geissele Super Precision Scope Mounts but this graphic surprised me as I had no idea they were offering 3 different variations of the AR15 / M4 Scope Mounts. These mounts are basically the same mounts that Geissele builds for the Unites States SOCOM (Special Operations Command) and have been getting rave reviews by those that have had their hands on them so far. 

Geissele Automatics Super Precision Scope Mounts

The AR-15/M4 Super Precision series of scope mounts are optimized for use with an AR-15/M4 upper. The mounting surface spans 7 picatinny sections and utilizes 4 shear lugs. These mounts use Geissele’s update of the classic nut and bolt method for clamping the mount to the picatinny rail, which is the most secure method of attaching your scope to your weapon. Each nut and bolt combination provides 1,400 pounds of clamping force, much more than any lever mounting arrangement.

The Geissele Automatics Super Precision scope mounts are available in a Standard, Extended and Hyper Extended configuration with the additional options of 30mm or 34mm ring size, a 20moa built in Cant and your choice of 7075-T6 Aluminum or 2099 Aluminum Lithium Alloy.  You can take a look at and order your own here: https://geissele.com/ar15-m4-super-precision-scope-mount.html

Hexmag Awarded Patent for their True Riser System

Posted on May 10th, 2016 by ar15news

**PRESS RELEASE**

Hexmag has recently been awarded the patent on our True Riser in our 10 and 15 round magazines. This patent is very important to us as we have developed an evolutionary system to offer factory made 10 and 15 round magazines for capacity restricted states. 

The Hexmag True Riser system for standard size Hexmag magazines was carefully engineered, with the Ar-15 consumer in capacity restricted states mind. You get a standard size magazine that is magazine pouch friendly, looks natural in your AR-15 and can still be dissembled for normal, routine cleaning/maintenance or to change the HexID system. 

Hexmag TRUE Riser System

It features our patented True Riser and a short spring, the True Riser brings the base of the spring up mimicking internally, a dedicated 10 or 15 round tiny magazine without the drawbacks of a tiny magazine. This has all been done here at the Hexmag facility to eliminate 3rd party dealer “blocking”, “pinning”, or “gluing” the magazines. Ultimately saving the dealer and consumer considerable amounts of money. Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazines have the same MSRP as the standard capacity 30 round Hexmag magazines of $14.99. 

Our HX10/30 10 round magazines were made for California, New York, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Chicago, Connecticut, Washington DC. The Hexmag HX15/30 15 round magazines were made for New Jersey and Colorado. If you live in one of these states or areas with a magazine capacity restriction you are not alone, rest assured that Hexmag has your back. 

All Hexmag magazines come with a Lifetime Warranty. For more information please visit the Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazine page on our website.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems Hex Brakes

Posted on May 9th, 2016 by ar15news

Phase 5 Weapon Systems has recently introduced a couple of really cool looking new Hex shaped muzzle brakes. The first was the FATman Hex Brake which utilizes a two chamber design to reduce felt recoil and 12 o’clock ports to compensate for muzzle rise. The newest version is the littleBOY Hex Brake and, as I’m sure you’ve guess already, is a little bit more compact (shorter) than the FATman. Currently both Brakes are available for 556/.223 and 7.62×51/.308/300blk but my contacts at P5WS have told me they will be releasing 9mm, 7.62×39 and 6.8mm versions later this month. Check out these sweet looking muzzle brakes and read the info below. Will make sure we let you know when the additional caliber options are available in a few weeks.

Phase 5 FATman Hex Brake 2

FATman Hex Brake

The FATman Hex Brake was created to solve issues faced by many competition shooters and precision rifle builders. The 2 large (FAT) ventilated baffle sections and chambers create the compensation needed to reduce the overall recoil felt by the shooter.

Phase 5 FATman Hex Brake 2

The FATman Hex Brake includes two top ports machined at a 20 Deg. forward directed angle. These top ports help direct the energy of the spent gas in a manner that maintains a flat consecutive result shot after shot. The design of the FATman Hex Brake allows the first chamber wall to sit as close to the barrel crown plane as possible. This design element was included to maintain the full accuracy of the barrel.


Phase 5 littleBOY Hex Brake 1

littleBOY Hex Brake

Introducing the littleBOY Hex Brake; a younger, compact version of the original FATman Hex Brake, which was also created to solve issues faced by many competition shooters and precision rifle builders.

Phase 5 littleBOY Hex Brake 2

Including 1 large (FAT) ventilated baffle section and chamber to create the compensation needed to reduce the overall recoil felt by the shooter. Just like its big brother, the design of the littleBOY Hex Brake allows the chamber wall to sit as close to the barrel crown plane as possible. This design element was included to maintain the full accuracy of the barrel.

The iconic Phase 5 Hex design gives the FATman and littleBOY Hex Brakes the perfect styling that custom gun builders are looking for.
