Mesa, AZ, August 23, 2016 – XTECH Tactical, manufacturer of the Advanced Tactical Grip is today introducing two new products for the HK VP9 pistol. First up is the new 5rd Magazine Extender for VP9 magazines. The XTECH Tactical mag extender adds an additional 5 round capacity to the VP9 magazine for a 20 round total. The mag extender is super simple to install with absolutely no tools needed.

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales and Marketing for XTECH Tactical explains how they have eliminated reliability concerns that plague many other mag extenders.

“The biggest thing for function is that we have a 100% consistent ID within the extender portion AND the  ID within the extender is less than the ID of the magazine.  The benefit here is that it is impossible for the extender to cause a Fail to Feed which is a known issue in extenders.”

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

The XTECH Tactical VP9 5rd Mag Extender is now shipping with an MSRP of $29.95 with FREE SHIPPING through the end of August.  http://www.xtechtactical.com/mtx-vp9p30-5-magazine-extender-with-spring/  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Additionally, XTECH Tactical will be offering complete XTECH Tactical VP9 magazines with and without the Mag Extender. The XTECH Tactical VP9 magazine will feature a 310 Stainless Steel body vs H&K’s Spring Steel body. It will also feature an extra round indicator hole to show the 20th round as shown in the photo below.

XTECH VP9 Mag 20 round 2

The XTECH Tactical 20 and 15 Round VP9 magazines will start shipping early this fall. The 20 Round magazine MSRP is $59.95 and the 15 Round magazine is $34.95.  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Limited Edition Multitasker Tools TWIST tool in Multicam

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Multitasker Tools makes some of the most useful multitools specifically designed for owners of AR-15’s and other popular firearms. One of my personal favorites is the TWIST which is like a pen that Q would have made for James Bond and is packed with useful tools to help keep your firearms running and on target. If you remove the cap on one end it reveals a bunch of maintenance tools such as a carbon scraper, dental pick, etc that screw onto the end of the cap that was just removed. When you remove the other cap you’ll find a Front Sight Adjustment Tool which doubles also as a bit driver. Other features such as an Aimpoint Micro Turret Adjuster are also included.

As they have done in the past, Multitasker Tools has partnered up with Brownells to offer a limited edition version of the TWIST hydrodipped in Multicam. The Limited Edition Multitasker Tools TWIST will sell out fast but your hands on the them first at www.Brownells.com.

A New Tactical Storage Solution For Long Guns

Posted on August 17th, 2016 by ar15news

**Press Release**

TacticalWalls Introduces New Rifle Length Shelves with RFID Locks

TacticalWalls RFID Rifle Shelf Storage 1

Shenandoah, Va.–TacticalWalls has announced the release of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) locking models of its 842 and 1242 Rifle Length Shelf (RLS) units.  With this release, TacticalWalls customers will now have the choice between magnetic or RFID locking mechanisms on all locking TacticalWalls units (not including the Tactical Lamp, Wall Clock or Issue Box).

TacticalWalls RFID Rifle Shelf Storage 1

TacticalWalls RFID Rifle Shelf Storage 1

The new Rifle Length Shelves are the perfect option to store a long gun or several handguns in a concealed compartment disguised as a fully functional shelf.  Each shelf has one RFID sensor in the middle of the unit with two locks on each side to prevent any sagging and help keep the shelf secure. Installation is as easy as hanging any common shelf.

The primary advantages of RFID locks are that they offer greater security and also allow firearms owners to access their guns even faster in an emergency. Opening up the hidden compartment is as easy as swiping the preset RFID card in front of the locking mechanism. Each unit will come standard with two key cards and one programming card, used to match the key to the proper unit(s). Additional RFID cards can be ordered if needed.  One card can also be set to open multiple units, granting access to each firearm staged throughout the home. If the battery on the RFID locking mechanism runs out of power, the unit automatically defaults to an unlocked-but-still-closed position.

“Our customers have been asking us to add RFID technology to our Rifle Length Shelves for quite some time now and we’re pleased to now be able to offer them this feature.  Our team put a lot of effort into this design to ensure that the craftsmanship is on par with the high standards that TacticalWalls is known for and we’re excited to bring these high-quality storage units to the market,” said Chris Wood, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TacticalWalls.

Inside of each Rifle Length Shelf is a medium density polyurethane foam insert that is easily customized to accommodate various home defense items. Simply cut the required shapes out of the foam, peel the self-adhesive backing, and attach it to the compartment bottom. The foam securely holds everything in place. Optional L.E.D. lights illuminate your hidden cache.

Both the 842 RLS and 1242 RLS are handcrafted in the United States with real hardwood. The surface-mounted shelf is designed for use with standard 2 x 4 stud framing. Maximum recommended hold weight for this shelf is 25 pounds inside and 25 pounds on top. Each shelf is pre-assembled and supplied with a set of two bookend-style shelf brackets for added support, one foam insert, anchors and fasteners.  To match your existing home décor, the Rifle Length Shelves are also available in six different finishes (Early American, Dutch Walnut, Cherry, Black, White and Raw) and two different types of trim (standard and rope).

TacticalWalls is a family owned and operated business, based in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our products are proudly manufactured in the United States. Every product is handcrafted using U.S.-sourced materials. We make products that are simple to install, easy to use, and offer discreet storage solutions for every room. 

MVB Industries ARC PDW Stock for AR-10 Rifles

Posted on August 16th, 2016 by ar15news

While you don’t see them very often, there’s definitely something jaw dropping about an SBR’d AR-10. Our friends at MVB Industries, makers of very well known and popular ARC PDW stock, have just introduced an AR-10 version of the ARC PDW stock. Gotta admit, I wish I had SBR’d one of my AR-10’s now. 🙂 If you’ve got an AR-10, SBR or NOT, and are looking for an option to make it a bit more compact, the MVB Industries ARC stock for AR-10 is a cool new product to take a look at. 

MVB Industries Banner

MVB Industries, Inc. (MVB) announced they have completed the production of the ARC Stock 7.62 NATO/.308 and that this innovative product is now available thru the company’s website:http://www.mvbindustries.com.

MVB ARC 762.308 PDW Stock 1

MVB ARC 762.308 PDW Stock 1

Gared Von Benecke, President & CEO of MVB, stated: “By utilizing our patent pending buffer and spring system, that makes MVB’s ARC Stock the premier PDW Stock in the marketplace, the ARC Stock 7.62 NATO/.308 brings the benefits of short overall length and rapid deployment rifle to a full power battle rifle. When collapsed it’s 2 inches shorter than a standard collapsed carbine stock, the size of this rifle platform has allowed for a full 5 inches of extension, resulting in an extended length equal to a Mil-Spec A2 rifle stock. The all-metal construction delivers extreme reliability and durability based on the quality raw materials precision machined to tight tolerances. Aluminum parts are Type III Mil-Spec Hard Anodized with the same specification as US Military rifle receivers. Steel components, primarily high strength 17-4 stainless steel, are heat treated and black nitrided for optimal strength, wear resistance, and smooth operation.”

Daniel Defense DDM4ISR Integrally Suppressed 300BLK Rifle

Posted on July 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Black Creek, GA – July 20, 2016 – Daniel Defense, manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, has taken suppressed weapons to the next level with the release of their new DDM4ISR rifle. This new rifle, designed for fulltime-suppressed fire and optimized for the .300 Blackout cartridge, features a fully integrated suppressor attached to its barrel, so it’s ready for suppressed service right out of the box.

DD ISR Integrally Suppressed Rifle 1

“This revolutionary rifle simplifies suppressor usage by eliminating variables and uncertainty,” said Daniel Defense VP of Sales Bill Robinson. “There’s no need to attach a suppressor and wonder if it’s mounted correctly and properly aligned. And no need to re-zero the weapon for suppressed vs. unsuppressed fire. The suppressor is literally part of the barrel.”

The high-performance suppressor—constructed of durable, heat-resistant metal alloys and coated with a protective high-temperature Cerakote-C finish—features a user-serviceable baffle core that can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. It is permanently attached to a 9-inch Cold Hammer Forged fluted barrel with a target crown for superb accuracy and reliability. Because the suppressor is a permanent part of the barrel, extending the barrel to the NFA-required 16 inches, the firearm is not classified as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) and only requires a single tax stamp, for the suppressor.

DD ISR Integrally Suppressed Rifle 1

Everything else about the DDM4ISR is classic Daniel Defense. It features a pistol-length gas system and comes standard with an MFR XL 15.0 modular handguard, which features a continuous 1913 Picatinny rail on top and Keymod attachment points at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. This longer handguard, in conjunction with a DD Buttstock and Pistol Grip, make this ergonomic rifle highly maneuverable and as versatile as the .300 Blackout rounds it fires. A resilient Mil Spec + Cerakote finish protects the rifle from the elements and adds to its overall aesthetic.  

DD ISR Integrally Suppressed Rifle 2

Available in states where suppressor ownership is legal, the DDM4ISR has an MSRP of $3049.00 Learn more or purchase this rifle by visiting danieldefense.com or an authorized dealer.
