LANTAC Presents its new Keyed Accessory Mounting system (KAM)

Posted on March 17th, 2015 by ar15news

LANTAC USA has been absolutely awesome to watch over the last year or so. They’ve come out with some really amazing products and continue to introduced new products at lightning speed. Their latest introduction is a bit different than their Muzzle Devices, BCG, Rails, etc in that it is actually a mounting solution. We are all familiar with 1913 Picatinny, KeyMod and M-LOK. Now its time to meet LANTAC’s KAM (Keyed Accessory Mounting) because from what I can see, KAM addresses some issues I’ve personally disliked about both KeyMod and M-LOK. Only time will tell but I’m seriously hoping KAM gains a head of steam like its predecessors and becomes a huge success. Check out the video and information on KAM below.

KAM can be used for the attachment of accessories to all types of surfaces, manufactured from a variety of materials. Metal, Polymer and Composites can all be mounted onto without any damage from galling, slipping or splintering.

KAM’s unique locking system is 100% integrated into the accessory and only applies compressive force to the mounting surface. Due to its unique design a powerful force can be applied without any danger of damaging the mounting surface area.

KAM uses a low parts count for accessories and has a simple / fast to machine hole and slot pattern that also gives design and styling flexibility to the manufacturer.

KAM is Patent Pending but Free to License for manufacturing purposes, with the only requirement being the inclusion of the KAM logo on the item manufactured with its features.

Different adapter plates and locking ‘ROTO’ nuts can be used to fix the same accessories to tubular / curved surfaces so the system represents true flexibility across all types of design.

More information on adapter plates and nut designs to follow.

Arisaka Releases 600 Series Scout Compatible Light Bodies

Posted on March 12th, 2015 by ar15news

**Press Release**

Apex, NC, March 11, 2015 – Arisaka LLC is pleased to announce the release of its new 600 Series Light Body.

The 600 Series Light Body is designed as a streamlined replacement for Surefire Scout Light M600 bodies. It is manufactured without the mounting interface for the stock Picatinny clamp, which increases clearance for front sights or other accessories. When used in combination with the low profile Arisaka Inline Scout Mount or Offset Scout Mount, the light can be tucked in very close to the rail system.

Arisaka 600 series scout body 3

The 600 Series Light Body is compatible with all E2 and Scout Light M600 series tail caps and heads. It will also fit in any aftermarket Scout mount, as it retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.

Like our smaller 300 Series Light Body, it is possible to build a complete light from scratch by sourcing a Surefire or aftermarket light head, and a tail cap or tape-switch.

The 600 Series Light Body is manufactured out of 6061 aluminum, type III hardcoat anodized, and made entirely in the USA.

Seekins Precision Announces New Barrel Nut for 2015

Posted on March 12th, 2015 by ar15news

**Press Release**

Lewiston, ID – Seekins Precision, announced the modification of their current barrel nut design.

With the constant changes to the Modern Sporting Rifle platform over the past few years, Seekins Precision has made a design change to the current barrel nut used in their wildly popular MCSR and BAR rails. This change allows the shooter to build either a standard direct impingement operating system, or use one of the aftermarket gas piston systems.

The minor modifications to the barrel nut will allow even more shooter customization and no longer limit the operating system that can be used.

Seekins Precision BAR MCSR Barrel Nut

“The new barrel nut will start shipping with all rails made after March 1st 2015″ said Kevin Weyrauch, Seekins Precision Business Development Coordinator. “We worked with some of the industry leading manufacturers for piston systems to make sure this new design was the right fit for our customers as well as theirs.”

NEW!! CMC Triggers Duty / Patrol 2-Stage Drop-In Trigger

Posted on February 17th, 2015 by ar15news

CMC Triggers is introducing another trigger option to their growing lineup. CMC currently offers their very popular Single Stage triggers in both Curved and Flat trigger styles and multiple pull weights as well as their new Two Stage triggers in both Curved and Flat trigger styles with your choice of a 1lb. first stage and 3lb. second stage or 2lb. first and second stage for a combined 4lb. pull. All of these options are great for recreational and competition shooters but someone such as a Police Officer on Patrol would want a trigger with a bit heavier pull to help protect against accidental discharge during high stress situations. This is why CMC Triggers is introducing the Duty / Patrol version of their new 2-Stage Trigger in both Curved and Flat styles. The new Duty / Patrol model will offer a 2lb. set (first stage) and a 4lb. release (second stage) giving it a combined 6lb. pull.

Trigger has a Glass-Smooth Break with no feel of grittiness. Trigger components are fabricated from 8620 alloy steel and S7 Tool steel, machined to exacting tolerances and finished for the longest service life possible. Minimal Lock-time is designed into the assembly using controlled hammer weight and balance and activated using a Rocket Wire hammer spring. Positive Trigger Reset allows a quick follow up shot on target. Trigger is easy to install following the included instructions.

NEW!! DS Arms BUFFERLOCK Buffer and Carrier Insert

Posted on February 12th, 2015 by ar15news

DS Arms is proud to release the BUFFERLOC, an improved buffer and carrier insert for the AR15 type rifle that fits all in spec AR15/M16/M4 type rifles. 

This invention improves the reliability, durability and takedown of any AR15 type firearm. The BUFFERLOC also addressed an issue common to piston ARs’ carrier tilt. By keeping the bolt carrier in line with the buffer we have essentially eliminated this issue. The spring loaded ball bearing insert fits OEM in spec bolt carriers; this insert has a corresponding buffer machined with a dimple that aligns the carrier. This allows for the lower and upper to be tighter. The bolt and carrier also stays aligned much better. Plus the BUFFERLOC stops the upper from flopping open in disassembly. The added constant forward pressure also aids in the reliability of your rifle especially in fouled conditions.

The Buffer Lock’s Enhancements 
1.Allows for the rifle to be opened without flopping open and hitting your body or marring the finish of your rifle. 
2.Keeps the bolt group aligned for better reliability and even wear on the bolt head, extractor and barrel extension for less part fatigue and wear. 
3.Keeps constant extra pressure on the bolt group ensuring better bolt lock for enhanced reliability especially under fouled and dirty rifle conditions. 
4.Reduces carrier tilt seen in many piston designs allowing for less wear on the buffer tube and less friction that can cause reliability issues. 
5.Lowers the chance of bolt bounce because of the constant forward pressure on the bolt group, providing enhanced reliability. 
6.Enhanced bolt group alignment provides for a better ejection pattern. 
7.Improves the fit of the upper and lower receivers. 
8.Drop in all AR15/M4 with no permanent modifications to you rifle. 

This new product innovation adds durability and reliability to the heart of your AR15 type rifle, at a low cost.

NEW!! Seekins Precision 60/90 Ambi Safety Selector

Posted on January 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Seekins Precision is release their new 60/90 Ambi Safety Selector for purchase. The new selector is a modular design that can be disassembled allowing the user to swap the Short and Long lever to whichever side works best for them. The center core of the selector is also very cool in that when inserted into the receiver in one direction it functions as a normal 90 degree selector but flip it over and insert the other end first and it is now a 60 degree short throw selector. The levers will feature the Seekins Precision diamond texture and come in Black, FDE, OD Green, Zombie Green, Red, Blue or Clear Coat Aluminum. Perhaps the most awesome part is that they will have an MSRP of just $39.99. As I mentioned, these are not currently on the Seekins website yet but should be very soon.

NEW!! CMMG Mk47 MUTANT 7.62×39 Rifle

Posted on December 5th, 2014 by ar15news

We were still finishing up our Cyber Monday deals when this new rifle was announced early this week but we didn’t want to forget to show it to you guys. I have one 762×39 rifle now and the only thing I wish was different is that it uses 762×39 AR mags instead of AK mags. The new Mk47 MUTANT rifle from CMMG not only uses any AK mag but also features a beefed up BCG based off the AR-10 design. If this interest you, check out the pics and details below.

CMMG MK47 1

Fayette, MO (Dec. 1, 2014)—CMMG Inc. today announced the release of the Mk47 MUTANT – an all-new rifle platform that combines the accuracy of the modern sporting rifle and relentless AK47-like reliability with the legendary 7.62x39mm caliber.

CMMG MK47 1

Engineered from 7075-T6 billet aluminum, the Mk47 MUTANT features a uniquely designed upper and lower receiver built to manage the dimensions and pressures of the 7.62x39mm tapered cartridge all while keeping the weight of the rifle at a minimum.  Remarkably, the Mk47 MUTANT (while unloaded) weighs just over seven pounds.

The Mk47 MUTANT utilizes a unique bolt carrier group derived from the massive AR10 group, which aside from being shortened to a length of eight inches, retains all of the material on the bolt face for added durability and strength.

CMMG MK47 1

The lower receiver is designed to accept existing AK magazines, which are widely available, inexpensive and extremely reliable. A standard ambidextrous hook and latch system makes reloading fast and intuitive. The rifle comes with one Magpul PMAG® 30-round AK/AKM MOE® 7.62×39 Magazine.

CMMG MK47 1

A full-length Picatinny rail runs atop the Mk47, making it easy to mount your preferred sights or optics. CMMG’s RKM KeyMod™ Hand Guard is exceptionally light and ergonomic. It also gives users the freedom to mount a wide array of accessories using the KeyMod slots found in the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. For accessories that are not yet KeyMod compatible, CMMG offers 5-slot accessory rails.

The Mk47 sports a 16.1” free floated barrel with a 1:10 twist and runs on the proven carbine-length direct impingement gas system. By effectively maximizing the accuracy and harnessing the knockdown power of the 7.62x39mm, the Mk47 is an ideal rifle for a variety of sporting and defense applications.
