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.

Wilson Combat Officially Joins the 9mm AR Game

Posted on March 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Yesterday, Wilson Combat revealed that they are entering the 9mm AR market. Pistol Caliber ARs have truly been on fire in the AR industry over the past year. The ones that are most popular (and for good reason) are those that take magazines that are compatible with other handguns. Having a primary and secondary weapon that use the same mags and ammo means I now can carry on style mag on a plate carrier or chest rig, in my car, etc. and know I have both weapons covered. Not to mention pistol caliber ARs are much more accurate at distance than their handgun counterparts. 

You might be thinking that Wilson Combat is a little late to the show but to me it looks like they took their time to come up with a product worthy of the Wilson Combat name and some great options. They will be offering 3 models of 9mm ARs. An AR Pistol and SBR with your choice of 8″ 0r 11.3″ barrel or a 14.7″ or 16″ barrel, all with the new 9mm QCOMP muzzle device. You will also get to choose if you want your Wilson Combat AR9 to take Glock, M&P or Baretta 92 mags. Read more about the new offerings in the press release below.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR

The Wilson Combat AR9 9mm pistol caliber carbine was designed from the ground up as the new standard in pistol caliber carbine reliability. The use of common 9mm service pistol magazines makes it an ideal choice for patrol, home defense and cost-effective tactical training.

Wilson Combat engineers have designed three unique AR9 lower receivers with last round bolt hold open that are compatible with the most popular 9mm service pistol magazines from GlockⓇ, BerettaⓇ and S&WⓇ.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR 1

The Wilson Combat AR9 closed-bolt blowback operating system is soft shooting and reliable with a wide variety of 9mm loads and exhibits flawless feeding with all common pistol bullet shapes, including hollowpoint and +P tactical ammunition. The AR9 bolt hold open ensures reliable lockback on empty with your pistol’s factory magazines. The AR9 proprietary bolt carrier group with heavy duty claw extractor and plunger ejector is tuned for exceptional reliability.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR 1

These new billet machined aluminum receiver models also accept standard AR accessories like furniture, triggers, charging handles, buttstocks and optics, and incorporate an integral trigger guard and flared magwell for fast reloading. The AR9 series of carbines has multiple unique patent-pending features that make it unique to the 9mm carbine market.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR 1

The AR9 is also an optimized suppressor host with minimal gas blowback and enhanced accuracy over other designs. Wilson Combat carbon steel match-grade button-rifled 1-10” twist 9mm barrels ensure that the AR9 meets our stringent quality and accuracy requirements.

The Wilson Combat AR9 can be ordered with your choice of GlockⓇ 17, S&WⓇ M&P or BerettaⓇ 92 magazine compatibility and configured as a pistol, carbine or short barreled rifle (all NFA rules apply). The AR9 is offered with your choice of fluted or non-fluted barrels in multiple lengths and various Wilson Combat designed muzzle devices.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR 1

Not simply a converted AR-15, the Wilson Combat AR9 has been specifically designed for superior reliability and maximum accuracy, while retaining the familiar handling and controls of the AR platform. The AR9 is available with your choice of pistol magazine compatibility, barrel length, custom Armor Tuff colors and other accessory options to suit your specific needs.

“We have extensively tested the AR9 and it has exceeded my expectations for reliability and accuracy. When the AR9 is mated with a quality red dot sight and weapon light it is an exceptional training and home defense firearm for shooters of all skill levels.” -Bill Wilson, President of Wilson Combat

Griffin Armament AR Furniture Now Shipping

Posted on March 14th, 2016 by ar15news

I recently had a chance to put some of the new Griffin Armament furniture kits to use and so far over the first few weeks I have really enjoyed them. They’ve been run at the range a bit and definitely have a great feel and a very unique look. Even though I liked the unique look at first, it has grown on me even more. I will be writing up a full review on these once I’ve had more range time with them. I’ve seen some torture testing they did with the ECS stock and was pleased to see it outlasted other stocks like the Military issued SOPMOD stock. Below are some crappy photos I took 😉 and the press release from Griffin Armament. The new Griffin Armament furniture kits are now shipping. Order yours at www.GriffinArmament.com.

The design objective for the Griffin AR furniture products were to bring quality, functional options to the market that offered unique benefits at affordable prices. The ECS™ (Extreme Condition Stock), RailShield™ M-LOK™ compatible rail covers, and A3 grip are available in Black, FDE, OD Green, and Grey.

Griffin Armament Furniture Kit

“The Extreme condition stock definitely took the most effort.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on to say, “I wanted to make something unique and better. There is a lot of stuff that has come out on the market the last few years that is unique but doesn’t necessarily add any new function or improvement over what already existed.”

The Extreme Condition Stock features a proprietary low drag latching system designed around a beefy stainless tool steel locking pin. This mechanism in conjunction with optimal geometry, and impact modified injected materials, allow the ECS™ to pass a 10 foot drop test when used with the Griffin MRE-HD (Maritime Receiver Extension Heavy Duty). In Griffin’s testing, the ECS stock, when used in conjunction with their MRE, allowed direct impingement Ar15s to pass an “Over The Beach Test”. Holes in the rear butt plate and along the sides of the stock communicate with holes in the MRE allowing for reduced pressure in the operating system when fired immediately after the firearm is removed from the water. The stock has a canted rear butt angle for improved ergonomics to the body. This also ensures recoil is kept high and in-line with the barrel to minimize muzzle rise. Also the top of the stock is “beard friendly” meaning there is no hole present as found in mil-spec style stocks. A low profile anti-rotation QD sling swivel socket is the provided means of sling attachment.

The A3 grip is simple in that it doesn’t have a plug on the bottom. “We polled a lot of our friends from military and contracting and a very small percentage ever used storage in plug grips even when they had them.” Said a representative from Griffin. The goal of this product was to make a very affordable improved grip over the A2 grip. “It features a more vertical grip angle and deletes the annoying finger shelf that nobody really likes.”, He went on to state.

Griffin Armament Furniture Kit

The RailShield™ panel kit sections are 4.6” long ensuring that you can get a full hand grip on the panels protecting your hand from thermal transfer of a hot rail if you are going through a lot of ammo fast. The styling of the kit matches the A3 grip. Four pieces are included. The user has the option of running the bottom flat panel or palm stop panel. The palm stop geometry is placed as rearward as possible, again allowing a full hand grip while giving the shooter an anchor point to pull the gun hard into the shoulder pocket to control recoil and grab fast follow up shots.
