“The addition of the M-Lok compatible handguards will allow our customers more options for customization” said Kevin Weyrauch, Seekins Precision Business Development Coordinator. “There is definitely a base of customers that prefer the M-Lok cam system.

TacStrike Systems Steps Back in Order to Move Forward

Posted on June 22nd, 2015 by ar15news

**Press Release**

TacStrike never intended to be every shooters target company. Only to serve those who needed our products at the highest level.

Roanoke, VA – June 19th 2015 – TacStrike Systems, a leading target manufacturer and retailer, is pleased to announce a return to the core principles that made TacStrike the trainer’s choice. This move is the culmination of many influences and a desire to serve shooters more efficiently and with lower pricing. A previous move to expand the target line to be all things to all shooters dilutes our goal and makes us appear to be just another target maker. However, by redirecting focus back to the foundation of the company, streamlining and eliminating the clutter TacStrike will be serving you faster, more affordably and with proven items for your training.

As of today TacStrike’s target lineup consists of a dozen items. Targets proven by the industry’s leading instructors to be the best for the job of training fighters. This streamlined approach allows a significant reduction in prices, by more than a third in some cases, speed up delivery times and handle your needs both before and after a sale with more care.

When your rifle costs a months salary and a case of ammo is equal to a romantic weekend getaway getting quality targets at a price that doesn’t break the bank makes everyone a more motivated shooter. So here is an sample of the new prices

–  1/4 Scale Steel Target Systems are now $175. Down from $220
–  1/4 Scale Ultra Lites Steel Targets are now $155. Down from $199
–  Full Size Steel Target Systems are now $299.95. Down from $399
–  4 Packs of Arch Frame Target Carriers are now $99.95. Down from $150
See More Now… 

With the movement to this pricing structure there are now two pricing structures. The manufacturing cost and retail. Low costs and streamlined like this makes the everyday ordering procedures simple for everyone. When a quantity of item(s) is needed shipping shifts from individual boxes to pallets and freight shipping which can save even more when outfitting a range or reseller.

TacStrike’s superb quality and craftsmanship hasn’t changed and the NO BS Warranty is still in place. If you ever experience a problem with a product TacStrike will work with you to make it right as fast and painless as possible.

So join an industry leader as quality, price and customer service take a front seat to low cost, low quality alternatives.

About TacStrike

TacStrike was opened on July 4th, 2011 by Rob Tackett, with the help of his wife, close friends and some of the finest professionals in the industry.  TacStrike has continued to provide exception targets for the training of shooters in both civilian and government services. Recently providing targets for the ranges at the Ohio Tactical Officers Conference and having the Body Mass Index awarded one of the Top 10 targets of the year by the American Shooting Journal.

June 11, 2015 – Kinetic Development Group LLC

Kinetic Development Group is proud to announce the debut of their KINECT™ – First QD Adapters for MLOK.

When Kinetic Development Group launched as a company, it appeared they were a “SCAR” accessory company.  Kinetic Development Group is a Firearms & Accessory solutions company. There is no limit to what they can and will do.

There has been some question why KDG has been so dedicated to the MLOK™ system manufacturing the MREX™ for the SCAR instead of Key-Mod.  Today they are announcing both MREX-AR™ rail solution in MLOK™, and the revolutionary Kinect™ system for MLOK™.  In a world of a thousand rails, that news may not be exciting, but revealing why they fervently supported MLOK™ from the beginning is very exciting; Kinect™ for MLOK™.

 KDG-Kinect-1

 KDG-Kinect-1

 KDG-Kinect-1

Kinect™ is a family of products that allow you to securely attach your accessories or picatinny rail sections to any MLOK™ system without tools. Press the accessory or rail section to the MLOK™ slot where you want it and “Click”, it is securely fastened. This patent pending technology is the card KDG has kept tucked up their sleeve while they built MLOK™ rails for the SCAR and now the AR. It literally takes less that a second to install or remove an accessory, yet the mount is so strong a grown man can do pull-ups on a single attachment point. For reference the 3 Slot picatinny Kinect™ Section can handle approx. 180 lbs. of force. See video.

Although revolutionary, Kinect™ is quite simple in its operation. There are two spring-loaded wedges in the base of the Kinect™ mounting point. When you press the accessory or rail section down in the MLOK™ slot, two tiny deployment triggers get pressed against the rail firing the wedges into place.

 KDG-Kinect-1

There is nothing more frustrating that fiddling with an allen wrench (if you can find it) to get your accessories on an off your weapon with traditional modular rail sections.  This changes the whole dynamic of the MLOK™ system and really makes every accessory truly removable with the ability to mount it in a second when needed.

There is not a whole lot that needs to be explained or left to the imagination about the Kinect™ system.  It will be plain to you once you see it or try it to know this is not a gadget, or gimmick but a huge step forward in how we utilize our modular firearms. Much like the Sidelok™ for Picatinny attachment KDG launched on Soldier Systems, Kinect™ insures proper and easy installation, eliminating common variables that would cause issues. (ie: over tightening)

KDG wanted to launch the MREX-AR™ rail and Kinect™ to the public at the same time to demonstrate they are true finding solutions to making open architecture firearms like the AR much better. At first glance it may look similar to everything out there, but like the MREX™, there was purpose in its design. Being both the developer of the rail system, and the Kinect™ accessory line gives KDG a huge advantage.

KDG-MREX-AR-1

It lets them develop accessory mounts that can for instance bring a Surefire light so tight into the rail space, its like it is integral. (Pictured Above)

KDG also put MLOK™ slots on a 45-degree angle at the 10 and 2 o’clock positions on the rail.  Now imagine an Aimpoint Micro or an RMR mounted tightly into the back of the rail offset at 45 degrees so you can transition to CQB using the dot and maintain your magnified optic.

KDG-MREX-AR-1

The MREX-AR™ is ergonomically set up to be more like a hand-guard (like the FAL or G3) instead of a tube. The profile allows the user a very comfortable C-Grip on the weapon, and allows those accessories to be mounted as though they are integral to the weapon.  The flat bottom of the rail system is ideal for shooting off of support.

By launching the MREX-AR™ rail and Kinect™ at the same time, KDG has demonstrated they are truly finding solutions to making open architecture firearms like the AR much better.

The first Kinect™ Pieces to become available will be launching this summer along side the MREX-AR™ rail. KDG intends to make available a wide arrange of Kinect™ pieces including 3 slot picatinny section, Harris bipod adapter, 7 slot picatinny section, offset surefire mounts, Aimpoint micro mounts, and many more to come.

Alamo Four Star Announces the Cowl Induction Break (CIB)

Posted on June 11th, 2015 by ar15news

June 9th, 2015 – Lubbock Texas – Lubbock Texas – Alamo Four Star is pleased to announce the release of the Cowl Induction Brake (CIB). The CIB CNC cross milled port design reduces recoil by over 50% while minimizing the sound directed back at the shooter.

Alamo Four Star CIB brake 1

The CIB was developed as better way to mitigate the recoil of large caliber rifles. Founder Mark Deros realized a need to revisit the industry standard muzzle brake design when he was shooting his .338 Lapua and experiencing substantial recoil with a standard factory brake. This led Mark to find the most effective way to redirect the escaping gas pressure and put that energy to work in order to more effectively reduce recoil and manage muzzle rise. This reduction was made possible by redesigning the internal and external geometry of the traditional brake to increase the efficiency of the flow of gasses.

Alamo Four Star CIB brake 2

“I realized after shooting my .338 Lapua for a while I realized that there had to be a better solution than receiving an ‘ass whipping’ with the factory muzzle brake.” said Mark Deros CEO of Alamo Four Star. “With 18,000 lbs of pressure being released from that muzzle, that’s a lot of energy available to be exploited. The CIB uses that energy to the shooters advantage creating a more enjoyable shooting experience and faster follow up shots.”

The CIB is available in 223/5.56, 6mm, 6.5mm, .30cal, and .338 Lapua in both black and stainless steel. MSRP on the CIB is $169
