3Gun4Vets and the Ulitmate 3-Gun Package Raffle

Posted on June 20th, 2016 by ar15news

Anymore there are so many new Veteran’s organizations that it’s hard to really vet each one and make sure they are legit. When one comes with a strong recommendation from an awesome company such as my friends at Seekins Precision it makes a huge difference. This was the case with 3Gun4Vets. They provide combat veterans, past and present the opportunity to become involved in the 3-Gun shooting sport by providing a free 2-day 3-Gun clinic. 3Gun4Vets was started by a service member after discovering the competitive, challenging sport of 3-Gun and seeing how it impacted his return to normal life after deployment. 

Currently 3Gun4Vets is hosting a raffle for the Ultimate 3-Gun Package which includes a Seekins Precision complete rifle, Benelli shotgun, Glock 34 and a ton of other pieces to the perfect kit. Funds from this raffle will go directly towards shipping costs, ammunition, range fees, etc. There are no paid positions at 3Gun4Vets so all of the money raised goes right back into the program to help our veterans. 

3Gun4Vets Ultimate 3Gun package

Tickets for this raffle range from $35-$50 depending on how many you purchase. Winner of the raffle will be drawn on August 20, 2016. This is a great program to support. If you are interested in purchasing some tickets, head on over to https://www.raffleriver.com/app/raffle/4107-3gun4vets-Ultimate-3-Gun-Package/ and show them some love. 

LANTAC .308/7.62X51MM “HEAVY” E-BCG

Posted on June 8th, 2016 by ar15news

LANTAC .308/7.62X51MM Enhanced Full Auto Style Bolt Carrier Group NiB Coated

LANTAC E-BCG™, Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group. AR10 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time. Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a 9310 Precision Hard Ground, Magnetically Particle Inspected Bolt. The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings. This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 Rockwell C.

LANTAC 308 EBCG -620

The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier. This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse. In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 1

The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s position within the buffer tube at the time of cycling and allows for a flatter more controlled reciprocation of the assembly. All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 1

All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360-H™ patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx). The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver. The BCG’s weight helps to increase lock time with smoother operation.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 3

Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 3

The E-BCG’s forward porting and unique shape assist in reducing pressurization inside the upper receiver that can be caused by short barrel rifles running suppressors. However, it should be noted that the E-BCG™ is not a complete solution for this issue and all rifles are different. ‘Over Gassed’ guns will suffer to a larger extent from this problem.

Weight 1Lb 2.1oz
Forward Porting, Enlarged Vents.
Balanced flared boss.
8620 Carrier, Heat Treated, Hard Turned.
MPI 9310 Bolt, Hard Turned / Ground.
NiB UCT EXO Coating.

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
