Sneak Peek – LANTAC SPADA-M Handguard

Posted on February 10th, 2017 by ar15news

Lantac is about to release their new M-LOK version of their popular SPADA handguard and we’ve got some pictures. The new M-LOK models will be available in two variations, the SPADA-ML and SPADA-M. Basically the SPADA-ML removes the raised QD sling attachment points to reduce weight. The SPADA-M is shown below. Looks like I need to start planning a new build. 🙂

NEW!! Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring

Posted on January 31st, 2017 by ar15news

Armaspec introduced a few new products this year at SHOT Show but the one I know many people are super excited about is the new Stealth Recoil Spring. The Stealth Recoil Spring is a drop-in replacement for your AR15 buffer and buffer spring that eliminates the noise from the spring rubbing on the inside of the buffer tube and helps the rifle function quieter and smoother. They also incorporated a rubber o-ring on the face of the Stealth Recoil Spring that removes any metal on metal contact.

Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring 4Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring 1

The Stealth Recoil Spring is a self-contained multi-stage drop-in replacement for your standard buffer and spring. Designed to reduced felt recoil as well as keep the buffer spring from rubbing against the inner wall of the buffer tube. The buffer mass is designed to stay under constant tension against the bolt carrier and the O-ring on the head of the buffer mass prevents metal on metal contact. Pat. Pend.

The Stealth Recoil Spring comes in 5 variations.
– SRS-Carbine at about 3.3oz equivalent
– SRS-H at around 3.8oz equivalent
– SRS-H2 at around 4.7oz equivalent
– SRS-9 at around 5.3oz equivalent
– SRS-H3 at around 5.6oz equivalent

Another awesome thing about the new Stealth Recoil Spring is the price. Armaspec has kept the price to a very affordable $79. At that price, if they work as advertised, I’ll be using these in many builds going forward. These are showing out of stock now but sounds like they should be available for purchase very soon at www.Armaspec.com.

NEW!! ZEV Adjustable Single Stage Rifle (SSR) Trigger

Posted on January 26th, 2017 by ar15news

Following the announcement of a merger between Zev Technologies and Mega Arms came another awesome announcement. Zev Technologies is introducing their new SSR (Single State Rifle) trigger for AR15 rifles. The Zev SSR is fully adjustable and comes with two hammer springs to give you the option of a 3-3.5lb pull or 5-5.5lb pull. Check out the picture and details below.

The new ZEV Technologies SSR (Single Stage Rifle) Trigger was designed to bridge the gap between the multitude of two stage triggers intended for duty use, and single stage competition triggers.

Zev Technologies SSR Single Stage Rifle Trigger 1Zev Technologies SSR Single Stage Rifle Trigger 1

The ZEV SSR Trigger’s engagement, over travel and reset can be adjusted to personal preference. One of the most unique design factors of the new ZEV SSR Trigger is that all adjustments are under detent retention which eliminates the need for thread locker and the possibility of failure from vibration or improper installation.  Each unit ships with two hammer springs allowing for a 5lb to 5.5lb trigger pull weight or a 3lb to 3.5lb trigger pull weight depending on which hammer spring is used. The trigger bow has been extended for a better user interface allowing the pad of the finger to easily find its natural position when firing.  Get the most out of your duty or sporting rifle with the enhanced features of the ZEV SSR Trigger.

Features:
– Easy User Install Providing A Crisp Single Stage Trigger Break
– Adjustable to Most Lower Receivers for Sear Engagement and Over Travel

Sneak Peek – BSF Barrels Carbon Fiber Sleeved Barrels

Posted on January 26th, 2017 by ar15news

Just prior to SHOT Show 2017 I met a guy named Aaron. Aaron has used his manufacturing knowledge to start Black Stone Firearms and produce some very impressive match grade barrels that are sleeved in a floating carbon fiber tube.

Black Stone Firearms Carbon Fiber Barrel 1

The carbon fiber tube has vent holes drilled into it to offer rapid heat dissipation. Not only are these barrels sub-moa accurate but they are extremely light and do not heat up nearly as much as a normal AR barrel. They’ve put over 100 rounds through a barrel in a very short time and without letting it cool down are able to grab the barrel and pick the rifle up by it. 

Black Stone Firearms Carbon Fiber Barrel 2

Black Stone Firearms Carbon Fiber Barrel 2

These barrels are 416R stainless steel, double stress relieved and hand lapped. They will be retailing starting at $629. Barrel weights are 16″ 25.6oz., 18″ 27.8oz. and 20″ 29.8oz. As usual, my friends at Rainier Arms have secured the initial release of these awesome barrels. Keep an eye out for these to be up on www.RainierArms.com soon. 

In the mean time you can also check out www.bsfbarrels.com for more information.

At SHOT Show 2017, Tactical Walls introduced their new line of Concealment Tables. The Concealment Tables follow their pattern of creating products that look and feel like something you would use in your home every day but include a compartment designed to hide a firearm, mags, flashlight, knife, etc. The tables are available as a Coffee Table, End Table and Night Stand and multiple different color finishes. All 3 models lock and can only be opened using one of the preprogrammed RFID cards. 

Tactical Walls Concealment Table - Coffee Table

concealment-end-table-dutcch-walnut-open

The Concealment Coffee Table, End Table, and Night Stand from TacticalWalls mark the first stand-alone locking units offered by the company. Similar to other offerings from TacticalWalls, they provide a clandestine staging solution for firearm owners to safely hide their defensive hardware in plain sight. From the outside, the TacticalWalls Concealment Tables appear to be just high-quality maple wood furniture. To unlock it, simply swipe one of the included pre-programmed RFID cards in front of the table, and the hidden compartment underneath the table top drops down, presenting your hidden cache.

If you weren’t sold already, here’s a short video showing one of the Tactical Walls Concealment Tables in action.

The new Tactical Walls Concealment Tables are pretty much what every secret agent dream is made of but you can now have it in your home too. For more information or to purchase one of these awesome new tables, head on over to www.TacticalWalls.com.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems Inc, (Phase5WSI) introduced a few new products this year at SHOT Show 2017 but the one that really stood out the most was this awesome new AR buttstock called the UMS or Universal Mini Stock. The Universal Mini Stock is an ultra compact al metal stock that can be attached to virtually any buffer tube out there including standard carbine buffer tubes and many AR Pistol buffer tubes. This could come in really handy for guys running an AR Pistol buffer tube on their AR Pistol while waiting for the tax stamp to come in. Once their stamp comes in and the AR is registered as an SBR you can just add the UMS on instead of needing to remove the pistol buffer tube and install a carbine buffer tube that accepts a stock. Sounds like these are a couple months away from being available for purchase. Check out the video and picture below.

Rebel Arms M16 and Enhanced BCGs On Sale

Posted on January 11th, 2017 by ar15news

Rebel Arms has both of their awesome looking AR-15 BCGs on sale right now. They offer both a standard M16 style BCG and an Enhanced BCG, both featuring a Black Nitride finish and Rebel Arms “REBEL” logo. Below you’ll find a picture details on the two different BCGs. Not sure how you could go wrong, both look like great BCGs and Black Nitride is my preferred BCG finish.

Rebel Arms BCGs

M16 Nitride BCG: Priced at: $155.99 Sale price of: $136.99
Our high quality Nitride Bolt Carrier Group features the newest revolution in coating. Unlike phoshpated or parkerizing, this bolt carrier has a black nitrided surface that reduces the need to apply oil to the carrier that can attract dirt, dust, unburned powder, and carbon and lead to cycling failures.

The nitriding process creates an ultra-low friction coefficient to the surface. When you feel the surface of the carrier you will notice that it is much smoother to the touch than a standard bolt carrier.  It also means less heat generated by metal on metal contact and also provides for easier cleaning.

The process hardens the steel as well, which makes this carrier have an increased resistance to wear thereby increasing the life of of the component and increases the amount of shots you can run over the life of it. The Gas Key comes already side-staked properly to the carrier.

Carrier:
– 8620 Carrier
– 9310 heat Treated MPI Bolt
– Heat Treated
– Case Hardened
– Black Nitride Finish
– High Lubricity

Enhanced Nitride M16 BCG: Priced at: $181.99 Sale price of: $159.99
The enhanced bolt carrier is designed to reduce carrier tilt/cant during recoil and increasing reliability by strategically relocating key bearing surfaces. The enhanced carrier has fewer points of contact resulting in less friction area and the slight increase in carrier mass extends dwell time and ensures proper gas pressures for reliable extraction.
– Material: Case Hardened 8620 Steel
– Finish: Black Nitride. This advanced low friction coating minimizes the need for lubricants.
– Gas key: 4130 Steel, attached with Grade 8 hardware and properly staked into a milled “valley” to ensure proper positioning
– Ejection port area is milled with added material for more strength and rigidity
– Cam Pin: Hardened 4340 cam pin
– Firing Pin: Mil Spec firing pin made of 8740 steel, center-less ground and Hard Chrome coated

Bolt Assembly: The Bolt is “True” Mil Spec dimension and external surfaces are CNC ground after heat treat for a precision fit.
– Material: Case Hardened 9310 Steel.
– Finish: All Bolt components Shot Peened & Manganese Phosphate or Black Nitride
– Extractor: 4340 Steel, Manganese Phosphate coated
– Mil Spec Extractor Spring & O-Ring Combination
– MPI: Magnetic Particle Inspected
– HPT: High Pressure Test

NEW!! KAK Industry 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit

Posted on January 11th, 2017 by ar15news

I’ve been known to tinker and tweak my guns until I get them running perfect. One of the AR’s I’ve done this the most on is my Quarter Circle 10 9mm. The blowback operation of these 9mm guns creates a ton of energy and gets the BCG moving at a very high rate creating a lot more felt recoil than you would ever guess and can also lead to beating up and breaking parts like bolt catches, etc. I’ve mostly been swapping around different springs and buffers going heavier and heavier.

QuarterCircle10 9mm Buffer Setup

KAK Industry just rolled out a brand new 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit that lets you swap out weights inside the buffer to adjust the overall weight of the buffer in stages up to 10 ounces.

KAK Industry 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit

This new KAK 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit would have really come in handy while I was trying to figure out the perfect buffer weight to get my build running like a sewing machine. It is also perfect for making adjustments for Suppressed, UnSuppressed, Subsonic Rounds, Full Auto, etc. If you’re tweaking your AR9, you definitely need to check out this new 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit from KAK Industry.
