New!! Luminescent Spike Sight Post for Magpul MBUS PRO

Posted on August 25th, 2015 by ar15news

Blitzkrieg Components just released the first photos of their new Magpul MBUS PRO Spike Shaped Front Sight Post. For the past few years they have been making the awesome Chevron Front Sight Post for most mil spec front sights but as soon as Magpul released their MBUS PRO all you heard was “What are you gonna make for the MBUS PRO?”. The MBUS PRO does not take a mil spec front sight post so Blitzkrieg Components had to do a complete ground up redesign. What they came up with looks pretty awesome to me. Its basically a Spike with a very sharp point like the top of a Chevron but it also features a luminescent strip that is very bright and high contrast during the day but also glows bright at night like their luminescent Chevron sight.

NEW Blitzkrieg Spike shaped sight post for the Magpul MBUS Pro sights. First model has a Luminescent Green stripe which is bright day or night.

Will be available Sept 2015.

Looks like this is just the first of many models of Blitzkrieg Components front sight posts for the Magpul MBUS PRO. According to BC the MBUS PRO Luminescent Spike front sight post will not be available until September 2015 which is fine by me. That is my birthday month after all. Looking forward to picking up a few of these to outfit my MBUS PRO obsession….collection.

Geissele Revamps Lineup of SMR Rails

Posted on August 21st, 2015 by ar15news

Geissele Super Modular Rails have always been hard to find in-stock as they’ve had a hard time keeping up with the demand. Recently Geissele decided to fix that issue by narrowing their rail offerings down to just their most popular models allowing them to increase production of those specific models which are the SMR MK4 and SMR MK8 M-LOK rails. Here are some words from Bill Geissele himself.

A letter from Bill Geissele to the best customers a company could ask for.

 

Dear Loyal Customers,

In 2009 Geissele started making our Super Modular Rail (SMR) for the AR-15/M4 Carbine platform. Since then the SMR variants have been highly sought after and keeping up with the demand became almost impossible due to the complex 3D machining and large material removal from the aluminum semi-billet we start with. A year and a half ago we decided to meet this issue head on; we invested in equipment, people, and engineered new processes and procedures to manufacture our SMR’s on a larger scale without compromising quality. This allowed us to make more rails than ever before and more efficiently than ever before. The improved processes have allowed us to not only mass produce the highest quality, premium rail on the market. But, it also allowed us to dramatically reduce the cost, a cost savings that we have decided to pass along to you, our loyal customers. Today is the culmination of all of that hard work. Starting now, the SMR’s for the AR-15/M4 Carbine platform will be available in 7”, 9.5”, 13” and 15”. Each SMR will also feature M-LOK compatibility, and most importantly will start at just $200. On top of that, each SMR will include a low-profile Stainless Steel Super Gas Block (SGB), a $59 value and a value that can’t be beat. 

I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your business and support. We promise to continue to provide the highest quality premium products available.

For God & Country,
Bill Geissele

New Geissele rails

Probably the first thing you’ll notice and many AR builders will be excited about is the fact that you can now get Geissele SMR in shorter length rails. Many SBR / AR Pistol owners have wanted to put an SMR on their ARs but have been unable to until now. Geissele SMR MK4 and MK8 rails are now available starting at 7″ and 9.5″ and then increase to 13″ and 15″ giving you an option for just about any build or need.

Geissele SMR MK8 Shorter LengthGeissele SMR MK4 Shorter Length

Another new surprise is that all rails (with exception of the MK7) will come with a FREE Super Gas Block. For non-adjustable gas blocks this is probably my favorite. They give you the option to use just set screws as well as a channel to pin the gas block to the barrel. I have used quite a few of these Super Gas Blocks without a single issue.

If you’ve been looking to purchase a Geissele rail, there’s never been a better time than now. All options are in-stock, new sizes to choose from and get a FREE Stainless Super Gas Block. How can you beat that?! Check them out now at www.Geissele.com

“When Double D Armory contacted us and asked if we would like to be a part of this, we were all over it. For Double D Armory and Centennial Gun Club to come together like this speaks wonders about these two awesome organizations. This is going to be one event we can’t miss, and I personally will be flying out to be part of this. I really hope the community comes together on this and helps them reach their goal.” –Chris Sharon – Hope For The Warriors, Director, Outdoors Adventures.

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.

Mega Arms Wedge Lock 1

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.

Mega Arms Wedge Lock 1

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.

Arisaka Defense Inline Light Mount 1

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.

Arisaka Defense Inline Light Mount 1

Weight: 1 oz.
Material: CNC machined 6061 aluminum.
Finish: MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized.
