Mega Arms Wedge Lock Hand Guards Are Now Shipping

Posted on July 31st, 2015 by ar15news

Mega Arms announced yesterday that they will are now shipping the first of their Wedge Lock hand guards which was designed in collaboration with Jim Hodge and Hodge Defense Systems. The Wedge Lock M-LOK hand guard will fit all mil spec uppers. First to be released is the Mega Extended Length which is 16″ long with all other lengths to start shipping in the next few day and weeks.

“Its finally time to tell you all the good news, Mega Arms Wedge Lock 7075 hand guards, compatible with any Mil Spec upper, have started shipping!

A collaboration with Hodge Defense Systems​, the mind set from the start was to create the finest combative modular system that was strong, lightweight, and with a positive tactile feel. We spared no expense in our material selection understanding the rigors this hand guard would potentially be faced with. For example, most manufacturers exploit the use of 6061 aluminum for ease and cost of manufacturing, though 7075 has strength properties that exceed 6000 series aluminums at or near 40%. Our barrel nut is made from Titanium to help with strength/weight, and the thermal properties one would normally see with steel or aluminum during high volume of fire. We chose a little thicker wall thickness for a solid tactile feel, more surface area, added rigidity, as well as a more positive lock-up for modular accessories.

The Wedge Lock / Hodge Defense Hand guard slip fit attachment system utilizes a simple, yet robust method via a unique patented wedge lock system. We designed the front of this hand guard to allow a gloved shooter to access their suppressor attachment point via a small angle, so not to fight for space while gloved. A steel anti rotation pin is incorporated in the 12 o’clock upper section which mates with a predrilled hole as found on Mega Arms billet and forged uppers, as well in many of our competitors uppers. The hand guard can be mounted without the anti rotation pin if your upper does not have this feature.

Please note, that due to the slim design of the The Wedge Lock, sound suppressors will not fit under the hand guard like they do with our MKM and MML uppers.

First to be shipped are the 16″ Mega Extended length version, designed for use with an 18′ or longer barrel. 14″, 12″, 9″ and 7″ version will ship in descending order, so the carbine length will ship last. M-LOK variants are shipping first, Key Mod will follow shortly.

Arisaka Inline Ring Mounts Available for KeyMod and M-Lok

Posted on July 13th, 2015 by ar15news

The Patent Pending Arisaka Inline Ring Mount is designed to securely attach 1″ handheld lights to KeyMod and M-Lok handguards. It is a perfect match for handguards that feature 45 degree angle mounting flats, such as the Bravo Company KMR, Knight’s Armament URX 4, and Geissele Automatics SMR Mk8.

Arisaka Defense Inline Light Mount 1

The Inline Ring Mount features multiple mounting positions for the clamping ring. When used on a 45 degree angle mounting flat, these positions allow the user to place the light closer or farther away from the top 12 o’clock rail to give clearance for front sights or other accessories. Three positions are provided, allowing an offset of up to 0.24″ from center. The outer diameter of the handheld light sits only 0.41″ above the KeyMod or M-Lok mounting surface, making the entire unit very low profile.

Additionally, the mount can be used in a cantilever fashion, with the end of it protruding past the front of the handguard. This can be useful with short handguards to help reduce barrel or suppressor shadows. The mount can also be reversed, allowing further flexibility for positioning your light.

Weight: 1 oz.
Material: CNC machined 6061 aluminum.

New Product!! POF-USA “Dictator” Adjustable Gas Block

Posted on July 10th, 2015 by ar15news

POF-USA RELEASES A 9-POSITION ADJUSTABLE, DIRECT IMPINGEMENT, LOW PROFILE GAS BLOCK.

PHOENIX, AZ (June 2015) – With suppressor ownership at an all-time high, there have been new requirements presented to achieve ultimate reliability. Each suppressor creates its own back pressures, which in turn makes the AR15 style rifle increase or decrease its speed. If the rifle is running too fast or too slow, the rifle has a higher chance of malfunction and/or exposure to increased component stress/wear.

Introducing the problem solver. The DIctator adjustable gas block gives the end user 9 different gas positions to fine tune their rifle system for whatever variable has been introduced ranging from a suppressor to different ammunition types. With a simple testing and tuning process (instructions provided in packaging), the DIctator will give the operator the knowledge to keep his/her rifle running at a consistent speed.

Modern handguards have continued to get longer and thinner, which proves to be effective when combined with modern shooting techniques. This fact was in our minds the entire time while designing The DIctator. This new gas block will fit under rail systems with an ID of 1 3/8”. The initial models offered will be gas blocks set up for .750” barrels in both a mid-length and carbine position gas system. Each DIctator gas block comes with a stainless steel straight gas tube installed and a specifically designed tool to allow the user complete adjustment without the possibility of getting burned by a hot gas block during the tuning process.
