NEW!! CMMG Mk47 MUTANT 7.62×39 Rifle

Posted on December 5th, 2014 by ar15news

We were still finishing up our Cyber Monday deals when this new rifle was announced early this week but we didn’t want to forget to show it to you guys. I have one 762×39 rifle now and the only thing I wish was different is that it uses 762×39 AR mags instead of AK mags. The new Mk47 MUTANT rifle from CMMG not only uses any AK mag but also features a beefed up BCG based off the AR-10 design. If this interest you, check out the pics and details below.

CMMG MK47 1

Fayette, MO (Dec. 1, 2014)—CMMG Inc. today announced the release of the Mk47 MUTANT – an all-new rifle platform that combines the accuracy of the modern sporting rifle and relentless AK47-like reliability with the legendary 7.62x39mm caliber.

CMMG MK47 1

Engineered from 7075-T6 billet aluminum, the Mk47 MUTANT features a uniquely designed upper and lower receiver built to manage the dimensions and pressures of the 7.62x39mm tapered cartridge all while keeping the weight of the rifle at a minimum.  Remarkably, the Mk47 MUTANT (while unloaded) weighs just over seven pounds.

The Mk47 MUTANT utilizes a unique bolt carrier group derived from the massive AR10 group, which aside from being shortened to a length of eight inches, retains all of the material on the bolt face for added durability and strength.

CMMG MK47 1

The lower receiver is designed to accept existing AK magazines, which are widely available, inexpensive and extremely reliable. A standard ambidextrous hook and latch system makes reloading fast and intuitive. The rifle comes with one Magpul PMAG® 30-round AK/AKM MOE® 7.62×39 Magazine.

CMMG MK47 1

A full-length Picatinny rail runs atop the Mk47, making it easy to mount your preferred sights or optics. CMMG’s RKM KeyMod™ Hand Guard is exceptionally light and ergonomic. It also gives users the freedom to mount a wide array of accessories using the KeyMod slots found in the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. For accessories that are not yet KeyMod compatible, CMMG offers 5-slot accessory rails.

The Mk47 sports a 16.1” free floated barrel with a 1:10 twist and runs on the proven carbine-length direct impingement gas system. By effectively maximizing the accuracy and harnessing the knockdown power of the 7.62x39mm, the Mk47 is an ideal rifle for a variety of sporting and defense applications.

NEW!! Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights

Posted on November 20th, 2014 by ar15news

Man, I am seriously going poor with all of these awesome new products that companies like Magpul are releasing lately. With the release of the new Offset version of the awesome MBUS PRO sights, I don’t see the bleeding stopping anytime soon. Offset sights work great with magnified optics. Switch from magnified (longer range) optics to non-magnified (close range) sights by simply rotating the gun about 45 degrees. The fact that these are collapsible sights make them very low profile when not in use as well.

I’m really excited to give these new Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights a try. I did the same thing with the standard MBUS PRO sights and now I have like 5 sets. :) As far as I can tell these are in-stock and ready to go now at www.Magpul.com at just $189.90 for a front and rear set. I’ll race you over there to see who can get a set faster.

NEW!! Mega Arms Slide Lock Ambi Charging Handle

Posted on November 19th, 2014 by ar15news

Mega Arms kind of surprised everyone the other day when they released pics of their new Slide Lock Ambi Charging Handle. Apparently this has been in development for close to a year now and will be released very soon. One key to this charging handle is that it has no latch that requires you to push on it for it to release the charging handle from the upper receiver. According to Mega Arms it has “full ambidextrous operation and some of the fewest moving parts of any charging handle on the market.”. This is a big improvement since it removes the main failure point of any charging handle which is the roll pin that the latch pivots on. There are no specifics regarding price or availability yet but they did say it will be less expensive than other ambi charging handles on the market. Check out the video and pics below. Stay tuned for a followup article as soon as the Mega Arms Slide Lock Charging Handle becomes available for purchase.

Posted on November 10th, 2014 by ar15news

Gotta give major props to Red Barn Armory for putting together this awesome Veterans Day Sale.

Red Barn Armory has a really cool idea and I hope a lot of other companies follow suit. Right now if you are a Veteran, RBA is offering a 10% off Discount Code and Free Shipping to you to say Thank You For Your Service! If you are not a Veteran of our Armed Forces, you can still get a discount code but you first need to make a donation of at least $1 to the Disabled American Veterans organization. At that point you can use your own 10% off Discount Code or a Free Shipping Discount Code. This way no matter what you are either honored for being a Veteran or honored for supporting our Veterans.

AERO Precision – New Website and a Month of Daily Deals

Posted on November 5th, 2014 by ar15news

AERO Precision just launched a brand new website. The new website is not only easier to navigate but it also does a better job of displaying all of the different types of products AERO Precision now offers such as complete AR-15 Uppers, complete .308 Rifles, etc. On top of the ease of use they have also really added an emphasis on improving the quality of their product photography. When you’re making an investment in AR parts its definitely nice to be able to see just how nice the parts are and get a good sense of the finish, etc. Sadly most firearm companies don’t care enough to take nice pictures of the products they expect you to pay a good amount of money for so this definitely says a lot about AERO Precision’s commitment to offering a quality product and quality experience.

NEW!! BCM Mod 3 Vertical Grips

Posted on November 4th, 2014 by ar15news

The BCM Mod 3 Vertical Grip is the latest evolution of the BCM Short Vertical Grip, offering improved ergonomics and the choice of two popular weapons mounting solutions. BCM Vertical Grip Mod 3s are manufactured from high quality, impact resistant polymers. They come in at only 1.9 ounces, and feature a low-profile length that is intended for increased mobility and minimized snag factor. Aggressively textured flat sides are designed for improved yaw control during weapon manipulation.

BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 Vertical Grip 4

BCM® DIRECT MOUNT PICATINNY 1913 INTERFACE SYSTEM

The new Patent Pending BCM® Direct Mount Picatinny 1913 interface system, was developed to be the most rigid, light-weight, and cost effective system available for Vertical Pistol Grips and Hand Stop type accessories. 

Most of the industry relies on a simple screw and backing nut for a mounting system. BCM® has developed a patent pending anchor system that not only secures to the mounting surface, but spreads the energy and force throughout the accessory. Conventional mounting systems can allow for an increased amount of shifting and flexing of the accessory. The BCM® direct mount interface system reduces those issues and offers a more secure lockup, eliminating play in the mounting surface.

BCMGUNFIGHTER Vertical Grip Mod 3
–  Low-profile length for increased mobility and decreased “snag” factor.
-  The forward angle increases the rigidity of the forearm, while providing a more natural wrist angle.
-  Can be mounted in reverse angle to increase control when grabbing handguard and grip.
-  Flat sides with aggressive texture give better yaw control to the shooter during firing and non-firing manipulations.
-  Anchor and bolt system offers a simple robust design, while maintaining a lightweight 1.9 ounces.
-  Made in the U.S.A., manufactured from high quality, impact resistant polymers.

The Mod 3 comes in two configurations: Mod 3 – KM and Mod 3 – 1913.

BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 Vertical Grip 4

BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 Vertical Grip 5

BCM Vertical Grip Mod 3s are available in Black, Flat Dark Earth, Foliage Green, and Wolf Grey. All versions and colors are vailable now for just $17.95 at http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCMGUNFIGHTER-Vertical-Grips-s/171.htm
