NEW!! Tactical Walls – 1410M Wall Clock Discreet Storage

Posted on April 8th, 2015 by ar15news

We’ve shown you many products from Tactical Walls in the past. Tactical Walls started out producing storage compartments disguised as mirrors in a variety of sizes from smaller compartments for handguns and knives to ones large enough for rifles, shotguns, ammo, etc. These have been very popular but some people have asked for options that did not require you to cut into the wall and mount the storage insert between the wall studs. After many hours of development, Tactical Walls introduced their first outside the wall option which was their awesome Tactical Shelves. Never the company to sit back and relax, they quickly started designing their second outside the wall product, the Tactical Wall Clock. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 1

The technical name for this product is the 1410M Tactical Wall Clock. What that means is you get a 14″ wide by 10″ tall storage compartment with a “M”agnetic mount technology that is hidden inside of a wall clock. The Wall Clock is fully functional and mounts just as you would any other large wall clock. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 2

The Tactical Wall Clock is designed to give you immediate access to whatever you decide to keep inside of it without it being in plain sight. In the event you need your gun, knife, keys, stone…whatever, you just press on the 12 o’clock portion of the clock face and it tilts out allowing you to reach inside and remove your items. The face of the clock can also be completely and quickly removed making it easy to put the items back inside. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 2

It is important to point out that the Tactical Wall Clock is not designed to be used as a Safe or to think that kids can not get into it if not placed out of their reach. Most of Tactical Walls products have locks on them but the Tactical Wall Clock does not. I wouldn’t let that deter you though. Because it is a wall clock it is perfectly normal to have it placed above eye level which, depending on furniture, should keep it out of the reach of young ones. Check out the video demonstration below. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 4

I think a wall clock is an awesome way to discreetly store items, up out of reach of children but still within arms reach if you need something in a hurry. You never know when you may encounter a threat in your own home or business and realize your much further away from your weapon than you should be OR maybe during a scuffle with an intruder you are disarmed and need to find an alternate weapon. Its also a great option for renters who don’t want to cut into the walls of their apartment  etc. Whatever the reason may be, Tactical Walls products are a great answer for those situations. Check them out at www.TacticalWalls.com.

Looking for a more cost effective alternative to the Sig SB15 Arm Brace for your AR Pistol? Check out the the new KAK Industry “Shockwave” Pistol Buffer Tube which is designed to perfectly interface with the new Shockwave Blade Pistol Stabilizer. The buffer tube features 12 dimples that interact with the Blade’s “anti-rotation / anti-thrust” set screw to adjust position for comfort as well as keeps the Blade from spinning on the buffer tube. Sounds like a great setup and at just $95 for the complete kit (about half the price of a Sig SB15 Arm Brace and Buffer Tube Kit) its a great deal too. Purchases of the complete KAK/Shockwave Kit or the individual parts can be made at www.KAKIndustry.com. Dealer inquiry information  is at the bottom of the press release.

Oxnard, CA (April 6, 2015)—KAK Industry, a leader in firearms component manufacturing, announces that is has secured the exclusive distribution rights to Shockwave Technologies’ line of Blade pistol stabilizers. KAK also reveals that it has developed a custom buffer tube for the Blade.

KAK Shockwave Blade Pistol Buffer Tube Kit 1

The class 3 hard-anodized tube features 12 length-adjustment settings. Its anti-rotation and anti-thrust design mean that the Blade stays put without sliding forward or spinning. The tube is flush with rear of Blade when it’s installed fully forward. When installed fully out, the assembly is incredibly rigid.

KAK Shockwave Blade Pistol Buffer Tube Kit 2

Being of the castle nut design, the KAK Shockwave tube accepts all carbine buffer systems, mil-spec receiver endplates, and aftermarket endplates. Kurt Kosman, president of KAK Industry, remarked, “Our two innovative companies have combined efforts to bring a higher-quality, easier-to-use, more-affordable pistol stabilizing system to the market.”

“Teaming up with KAK Industry is a smart step for our small company,” stated Marty Ewer, owner of Shockwave. “We have a product that is an immediate hit with anybody who sees it. KAK is well-respected in the industry for its quality products and excellent customer service. And they have the resources to really catapult the Blade into the industry spotlight—pairing it with their KAK Shockwave tube and getting the system in front of virtually everybody through its rapidly expanding dealer network.”

KAK Industry will retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and package deals online as well as provide wholesale pricing to Web-based resellers and brick-and-mortar shops. Dealers interested in retailing the Blade should contact KAK Industry through their website (www.kakindustry.com) or by phone at 805-981-4734. Shockwave will also retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and kits through its website and other Internet channels. “Our goal is to make the Blade pistol stabilizer and KAK Shockwave tube 2015’s must-have accessories,” added Kosman. For more information, contact KAK Industry at 805-981-4734 or Shockwave Technologies at 801-815-5178.

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.

kam3

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.

kam3

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.

Please contact us on info@lantac-usa.com to register interest and receive more information.

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.

The Duty / Patrol Two-Stage CMC Trigger Group is a completely self contained, 100% drop-in, fire control group upgrade for the AR-15, and AR-10 family of rifles. Trigger pull is factory pre-set, is not user adjustable and comes in 2lb set with 4 lb release trigger weights. An ultra-crisp trigger with no feel of creep prior to hammer release. 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.

The new CMC Trigger Duty / Patrol Triggers should be available for purchase very soon. We will be sure to update you guys as soon as we know when / where these new triggers will show up for purchase first. For now you can head on over to CMCTriggers.com and check out their entire line of drop-in triggers.

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. 

DSA BUFFERLOC 1

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.
