Radical Firearms has teamed up with Seekins Precision to create the new “Radical Rail” which to me looks like a hybrid of the MCSRv2 KeyMod rail and a BAR quad rail. I’m really digging the looks. You basically have a full length 12 0′clock rail and shorter rail sections at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with KeyMod filling the rest of the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock surface. It definitely looks great. The internal diameter is large enough to easily accommodate most suppressors or muzzle devices such as the Noveske KX3, PWS CQB comp, etc. Plus you know if Seekins Precision made it, its good to go. Check out the pictures below. You can purchase the 15″ version now at www.RadicalFirearms.com.

The Radical Rail System offers a larger inside diameter designed to accommodate your suppressor or for those that like the feel of a full sized quad rail. At 1.8” inside diameter your suppressor easily fits inside and the cutouts on the rail aid in rapid cooling. The Radical Rail System features anti-rotation tabs, built in non-rotating QD sling mounts, Key-mod rails that allow you to run without rail covers, allows any accessories and is hard anodize coated and super awesome if we say so ourselves. The Radical Rail is available in three different lengths, 9”(13.1oz), 13”(18.6oz) and 15”(21.2oz). Installation is a breeze using the standard USGI barrel nut wrench and ships with all mounting hardware and shims for proper barrel nut alignment.. (This is a special Rail developed by Radical Firearms and Seekins Precision and is the exclusive rail used by OSS Mission Suppressors). 

Specs:
• 7075 Construction 
• 1pc free float design 
• Billet Aluminum barrel nut 
• Seamless top rail 
• Key-mod Design to accept any accessory 
• Mil-Spec 1913 Picatinny Rails 
• 1.8” inside diameter to accept any suppressor 
• Anti-rotation tabs 
• Type III Class 2 Hard-coat Anodized Finish

TacStrike CPaSS Target Carriers On Sale

Posted on July 24th, 2014 by ar15news

My buddy Rob over at TacStrike makes some really awesome Steel Targets and Target Carriers. One of his most popular target carriers is the CPaSS which stands for “Carrier: Portable and Self Staking”. As you may have gathered from the name, it is a Target Carrier that is portable because it folds up into an easily carried shape. It also features a leg that folds out and stakes into the ground to add stability and keep your target from falling over when the wind blows. All you do after that is add some 2×2 wooden posts, attach a target and you’re ready to blast away. Right now he has these target carriers on sale for just $40.50 but there are not a ton left in-stock. Jump on one of these before they’re all gone at www.TacStrike.com.

NEW!! Hogue AR-15 Stocks and Trigger Guards

Posted on July 23rd, 2014 by ar15news

Most people, even with limited gun experience, know the name Hogue. They are pretty synonymous with any type of rubber OverMolded grip for Handguns or Rifles. Recently they decided to add a few more products to their lineup. The recently released products include an AR-15 collapsible stock and a new G-10 AR-15 Trigger Guard. 

The Hogue collapsible stock made from a lightweight reinforced polymer coming in at just 8.3 ounces and features rubber OverMolded sections on the Buttpad and Cheek Rest area. The stock has an Anti Rattle design, 3 different QD sling attachment points and is made in the USA with a starting MSRP of just $59.95. Details and purchasing info at www.HogueStore.com.

The other recent addition we mentioned is the G-10 Trigger Guard. These Trigger Guards come in the standard Flat style and in a Contoured (aka Winter Trigger Guard) style. G-10 is a very strong lightweight material that is typically used in making knife handles. I’m not so much a huge fan of the straight design but the Contoured ones look pretty neat. These are also available at www.HogueStore.com starting at $24.95 each.

Devil Dog Concepts, a company owned and operated buy two former Marine Corp Sergeants, has just introduced their new Left Side Forward Charging Handle which they are calling the “Hard Charger”. This systems replaces your existing AR-15 charging handle with a new system giving you a larger handle that is positioned on the left side and positioned further forward towards the front of the upper receiver thus converting your current standard upper to a side charging upper. At this point, you’re probably thinking “This sounds familiar”. There have been a few different companies who have made side charger systems but what makes this system different is that it incorporates an additional mount that clamps onto the forward most portion of picatinny rail section on the upper receiver. This should address all tilt/binding issues of the Side Charing Systems that have come before.

Devil Dog Concepts Hard Charger 2

LOVE/HATE Subject
Side Charging uppers are kind of a touchy subject. Most people are either a die hard fan or staunch critic. There are very few who are on the fence. Whether using this Hard Charger system or a conventional Side Charging Upper, they offer the functionality of a further forward, more comfortable position for the charging handle and offer a larger latch to make charging the weapon easier while in the prone position and when you are using optics with larger mounts, etc.

Devil Dog Concepts Hard Charger 2

PRO’s and CON’s
Both types of side charging systems have their own PRO’s and CON’s. Some PRO’s for the “Hard Charger” type of side charging system is that it is non-reciprocating, meaning it does not move back and forth with every shot and that you can easily upgrade your current rifle with it in minutes.

A couple of PRO’s for the conventional side charging system is that it completely eliminates the Charging Handle all together making the use of accessories like Cheek Risers, etc easier and helps with gas blow back so long as the charging handle slot is closed up properly. You can also charge the weapon easier without moving your cheek from the firing position because there is no charging handle coming back at your face. The knob that you use to charge the weapon is also a forward assist.

So as you can see, this comes down to user preference. If you are interested in having a side charger system, you have to decide what type of system you want to go with. For this type of side charging system, the Hard Charger from Devil Dog Concepts looks to be a good option to try. More details and purchase information are available at www.DevilDogConcepts.com.

**Just to clarify, I do not have one of these systems myself. As with most of the articles I write, it is meant to inform our readers of new parts and accessories, not necessarily a recommendation or review unless specifically stated as such.**

Adams Arms Makes BOLD Move to Dominate the Market

Posted on July 21st, 2014 by ar15news

Big things are happening in the halls of Adams Arms these days. Today they have the ability to take superior products to the market at industry leading prices. A recent move to bring production in house coupled with increasing overall productivity allows them to pass savings directly to customers. While traditional piston systems can cost an average of $1,200-$1,600, the Adams Arms base piston rife now has a MSRP of just $995. These prices allow the company to compete with lower priced, traditional rifle systems, while still offering consumers the ability to afford high-quality piston rifles, parts and accessories.

Adams Arms President and CEO Michael Froning commented, “We are extremely excited to be able to reset the bar from a product cost standpoint while delivering the highest quality products on the market. While the industry is seeing reduced prices to combat lagging sales, we have been able to drive our costs down significantly and pass on savings of over 20% to the consumer”

The company also announced exciting new upcoming projects to include:

* .308 Rifles

* Pistols

* .22 Rifles

* Shotguns

* Custom Slides

* Projectiles

* Accessories

More news on the release of these products is expected in the next few weeks.

Adams Arms Press Release

Established in 2007, Adams Arms began with an innovative design that improved the operating system of AR style rifles. The Adams Arms Retrofit Kit provided users the ability to upgrade their existing direct impingement rifles to a piston operated system in a mere thirty minutes or less using a 3/4 inch wrench and hammer. They received a patent in 2008 and gained major OEM partnerships which quickly made their system the number one piston system on the market with more than three times the OEM contracts of competitors.

By 2011 they were building their own upper assemblies and within a year manufacturing complete rifles. Adams Arms’ growth skyrocketed as they acquired their largest OEM manufacturer allowing them to produce the majority of their parts in-house. Adams Arms also develops and utilizes some of the most technologically advanced manufacturing processes, machining techniques and coatings, including QPQ, PVDs and Nickels, that far exceed Mil-Spec standards for quality and performance.

They launched VooDoo Innovations, a sister company, in 2013. VooDoo brings high end coatings and processes to the direct impingement market. With so much growth, a major decision was made to purchase $4 million in manufacturing assets. New equipment and the addition of key leadership and industry hires resulted in more than 75% of production moving in-house. Distribution channels were expanded to new distributors, buying groups, direct dealers and website retail sales.

This year they have continued to streamline production and grow their line with products such as:
-  XLP Low Profile Gas Block
-  C.O.R. Rifle
-  Ultra Lite Advanced Dissipator
-  Line of 300 BLK Products
-  VooDoo Rail System
-  VooDoo Innovations LifeCoat Parts

Badrock Tactical Making Waves In the High Quality AR Market

Posted on July 19th, 2014 by ar15news

Badrock Tactical is a newer AR manufacturer but that isn’t stopping them from already turning some heads. I recently had a chance to speak with the owner of Badrock Tactical and with a business model aimed at making high quality AR-15 and AR-10 components and complete rifles at an incredible price point, I felt it would be awesome to introduce them to those of you who read and follow AR15NEWS. 

Badrock Tactical recently teamed up with the talented people over at Juggernaut Tactical to start making their billet receivers sets and it has turned into an awesome partnership. Juggernaut Tactical is well known for their Rogue M1A Chassis plus some awesome 80% receivers and jigs. Badrock Tactical will use a similar set to the JT receivers for their rifles and they really make an extremely sweet looking build. The billet receiver sets are priced awesome as well at just $329 for AR-15 and $399 for AR-10 billet sets.

The builds they put together are nothing short of breathtaking. They have styles to fit just about any shooter, including for those who like a little bling. They’ve literally gone through each rifle they offer and upgraded everything possible including Ambi Bolt Catches from Phase 5, PWS Enhanced Buffer Tubes, JP Silent Capture Buffer Springs and either Timney or Geissle Trigger Systems with several hand guard options and price ranges starting in the $1,800 range including custom Cerakote finishes. They will also be working with Juggernaut Tactical to make “less enhanced” rifles to market that will be more in the $1,300 range but still feature mil spec internals, the same billet receiver set, free float rail system, etc.

In Short, Badrock Tactical is a company to keep an eye on. They have some great stuff coming in the near future and appear to know a thing or two about creating some great looking rifles. In case you were wondering, I didn’t get paid to do this article (never have and never will sell article space) nor did I feel that I had to write this article. I wanted to do it because they have something different about them that I really like. Hopefully you love learning about new companies like I do and I hope to be able to work with Badrock Tactical more in the future to bring you new products and deals, etc. Speaking of deals, I almost forgot that Badrock Tactical wanted to offer a special 10% discount code to our readers. Use the code “AR15NEWS” now through Tuesday [7/22/14] at www.BadrockTactical.com.
