Photos of the new Agency Arms “CLASSIFIED” Rifle

Posted on January 27th, 2016 by ar15news

At SHOT Show 2016, Agency Arms announced a partnership between themselves and PWS (Primary Weapon Systems) to offer the Agency Arms Project CLASSIFIED DI rifle. I got permission to share the following photos that as far as I know have not been fully published yet. Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics and Agency Arms said this regarding the new rifle…

“Everybody knows there’s ARs all over the place. Why would you choose one brand over another brand? Quality is quality. But there are features on the AR platform that can be improved and when people get together and start thinking about them they find new ways to do things that some people just didn’t think of before. Some times its a little fix, some times its something potentially revolutionary. Not gonna use the word game changer but what I will say is this rifle brings a lot of value added products to the platform that are gonna be something that you might prefer in a rifle system if you’re looking for a new one.” – Aaron Cowan, Sage Dynamics

NEW!! Faxon Firearms STREAMLINE M-LOK Handguards

Posted on January 14th, 2016 by ar15news

As we’ve mentioned in the past, Faxon Firearms has grown a lot over the last year or two with the addition of AR-15 barrels, now offering complete Direct Impingement AR-15’s and now they are offering their own line of AR-15 handguards. Faxon Firearms has introduced their new STREAMLINE M-LOK Handguards which include a 12 o’clock run of 1913 rail surrounded by 7 additional runs of M-LOK cutouts. They’ve also opted to not include a sling mount which I like because it doesn’t add bulk to the rail and lets you add an M-LOK sling mount wherever you want it. The rail is very sleek looking and is available in 7″, 9″, 13″ and 15″ lengths with an extremely competitive price range of just $135 to $149. Check out the press release and images below, then head on over to to snag one for yourself.

The handguards are released in four lengths, 15”, 13”, 9”, and 7”. The handguard is 100% made in the USA from extruded 6061 aluminum. The handguards are hard-coat anodized black and feature a steel barrel nut. Mounting is extremely simple with common tools and the handguard features alignment tabs to ensure it cannot rotate during extreme use.

Tactical Firearms Solutions Introduces NiB (Nickel Boron) Smoke

Posted on January 12th, 2016 by ar15news

Tactical Firearms Solutions will be introducing NiB (Nickel Boron) Smoke at SHOT Show 2016. NiB Smoke is different in that it won’t be this super bright coating. Its basically a dark Nickel Boron and will be offered in two different variations including a “Battleworn” version shown below that looks pretty sweet! TFS is partnering up with DRD Tactical to introduce NiB Smoke at SHOT Show. Check out the new coating in the awesome photos below.

Tactical Firearms Solutions NiB SmokeShown here is the dark color of the NiB Smoke

We have been working hard to develop and perfect the new NiB Smokeᵀᴹ. NiB Smokeᵀᴹ is a patent pending Nickel Boron plating treatment that offers superior scratch and wear characteristics while simultaneously reducing friction to firearm surfaces. NiB Smokeᵀᴹ is a modern industrial dark gray shade which will be offered in 2 distinct variations. First will be a solid dark industrial gray and the second (pictured below) is the “Battleworn” variation. NiB Smokeᵀᴹ also does not significantly change the operating tolerances of firearms parts and can be successfully applied to most firearm alloys including Aluminum, Steel, and Titanium. NiB Smokeᵀᴹ is dark colored Nickel Boron. It is not Cerakote and is not a painted finish. It will not wear off like Cerakote and is great for ultimate protection and wear resistance.

BCM® AR15 Enhanced Lower Parts Kit

Posted on January 8th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’re an AR builder like most of us are, you’ve undoubtedly wasted money on a junk LPK at least once. Some times its hard to pass them up when you see how cheap they are but you inevitably regret it when you install the parts and see that the mag catch isn’t the right shape, takedown and pivot pins are rough or sized wrong, triggers crap, etc. There are really only a few high quality complete Lower Parts Kit options out there and thanks to Bravo Company USA we now have one more option to add to the list. People have been asking for a BCM LPK for a long time. Now that BCM has its own Fire Control Group (introduced last month), the time has come for complete BCM LPKs.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 5

BCM didn’t just take one of those junk LPKs and add in a nice trigger. As with everything BCM does, there were no corners cut using all USA made components and only the best materials. These LPKs will not only be available as a standalone product but will also now be included in all BCM complete lowers and rifles at no additional charge.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 4


BCM® now offers a complete lower parts kit for AR15 rifles, made entirely in the USA from components built from Mil-Spec AISI8620 investment castings, AISI8620 bar stock and using 17-7PH stainless steel springs as well as advanced manufacturing methods to insure longevity under hard use.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 4


– BCM® PNT™ Trigger Assembly
– BCM Mod 3 Pistol Grip
– Enhanced Polymer Trigger Guard

The BCM Lower Parts Kit is built from 100% parts machined to Mil-Spec standards with all polymer components are available in Black, FDE, Foliage Green and Wolf Grey.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 4



Today, the commercial market is flooded with a mash up of inferior imported OEM parts with sloppy dimensions, hardness, finishes, and cheaper alloys. BCM will again, set the standard for quality American made components, that offer a long service life for those that may find themselves in harms’ way.

The BCM LPK is definitely a welcomed new product and at just $99.95 including their new PNT trigger group, the value is definitely there. I’ve paid that much for quality LPKs such as Daniel Defense, etc but that was without the upgraded trigger that BCM includes. These LPKs are currently shipping to dealers all over the country.

They are also equipped with a Magpul STR stock and MOE+ grip meaning you really just need to add some BUIS or optics and you’re ready to go. Check out the picture of the SP15 and some details below. The SP15 should be available soon from at an MSRP of just $1,275.

Seekins Precision SP15 Rifle

Seekins Precision SP15 Forged rifle 2

Designed as a high performance tactical carbine, the SP15 is built to MIL-SPEC configuration with greater adaptability and performance through upgraded components and precision manufacturing. Both the upper and lower receivers are CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum forgings. The exacting attention to detail and precision manufacturing produce a superior fit and finish not found on standard MIL-SPEC parts.

Extremely lightweight and user adaptable, the included No Excess Rail (NOXs) is perfect for tactical, sporting and competition use. Precision machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, it features a seamless top Picatinny rail and M-Lok slots at 3, 6 and 9 O’clock positions for solid mounting of accessories where needed.

The SP15 provides precision rifle performance in a tactical carbine. The SP15 comes with a 16″ barrel with a Seekins Precision Melonited Flash Hider. Precision CNC machined from premium stainless a steel blank, each barrel is inspected four times to insure match grade tolerances for maximum accuracy and performance. Available in .223 Wylde and .300 Blackout

Melonited gas system components are used, including the gas block, gas tube and M16 Bolt Carrier Group. These are coated to resist corrosion and wear. This also aids in easier cleaning, as carbon build up will not adhere to the non-reflective coated surface as much as it does on standard parkerized finishes.

Other high performance features include the ALG QMS trigger group, an Magpul MOE + Grip and the Magpul STR butt stock.

  • Upper and lower receivers CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum forgings
  • Exceeds MIL-SPEC requirements and performance
