LANTAC is on a roll! Not too long ago, LANTAC introduced a Dragon muzzle brake variant that included the GEMTECH QD Lugs. Now they have officially introduced a collaboration with SilencerCo that is a LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake with an integrated ASR Quick Mount System. The fact that LANTAC is working with Suppressor manufacturers to make muzzle brakes that are compatible with their popular suppressors is awesome. It means you can continue to use one of the best muzzle brakes on the market instead of being locked into using whatever the suppressor manufacturer gives you. Check out the information and pictures below.

LANTAC Dragon SilencerCo ASR Mount 1 copy

LANTAC DGN556B-ASR™ Dragon® Advanced Muzzle Brake with SilencerCo™ ASR Quick Mount Suppressor Adapter. The DGN556B-ASR™ is precision machined, hardened to 48Rc and nitride finished for enhanced corrosion resistance. It features our patented gas handling system that reduces muzzle rise and recoil to zero, meaning that the only recoil felt by the shooter is from the movement of the carrier and buffer within the buffer tube. Its unique Short Energy Pulse system reduces length of recoil so that repeating shot energy cannot overlap and knock the shooter off target. Full auto fire is possible with massively reduced recoil and muzzle climb, meaning that all shots fall on target. With the addition of the SilencerCo ASR quick mount system it is now possible to mount the SilencerCo Saker, Omega Suppressors and the Blast Shield.

The DGN556B-ASR™ Brake/ Mount is threaded 1/2-28UNEF and is designed to be used with 5.56/.223 Caliber ammunition only.

Comes with appropriate shim set for timimg the brake / mount. X2 .34mm, X3 .22mm, X3 .11mm, X4 .075mm & x1 2mm Washer.

Virginia Beach, Va. (October 2017) – SENTRY Products Group, an industry leader in the Military, Law Enforcement and Outdoor equipment, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Hexmag™, innovators of AR-15/AR-10 magazines and accessories.

SENTRY Products Group Announces the Acquisition of Hexmag™

When Hexmag was founded, it introduced lightweight magazines for the AR-15/AR-10 platforms. “We set out to make the most durable, versatile and aesthetic magazine on the market,” stated Aaron Schefter, founder of Hexmag. He continued, “With great acceptance and a strong end user following, the company rapidly expanded and SENTRY was the logical partner to continue the product development.

SENTRY Products Group Announces the Acquisition of Hexmag™

Built in the USA and backed with a lifetime warranty, Hexmag’s products are manufactured using a proprietary fiber-reinforced polymer, PolyHex2, resulting in a lighter and more durable magazine.

He continued, “This addition creates new US based jobs as manufacturing and distribution moves to SENTRY’s Boise, Idaho facility and core business functions move to the Virginia Beach, Virginia U.S.A. headquarters.”

“The acquisition of Hexmag fits perfectly with SENTRY’s short, medium and long-term vision of both organic growth, as well as growth through acquisition,” said Mike Noell, CEO of SENTRY.  “Hexmag was an easy plugin to our accessories business and gives SENTRY additional product categories, sales channels, new distribution partners and an entrance into the high-tech injection molded product arena.

If you’re a fan of fixed sights on your AR, you’re going to want to check these out!! It’s been a while since Centurion Arms did a run of their super popular C4 Diopter Sights. The C4 Diopter Sights basically take the look and feel of HK Iron Sights and adapt them for use on an AR-15 with a standard flat top upper receiver. 

“Centurion Arms is reintroducing a set of “diopter” style iron sights for use with AR-15 or M4 flat top receivers. The sights are designed to the correct ergonomic height for the standard AR-15/M4 flat top receivers in any of the popular calibers including (5.56, 300BLK, 9mm ect) for the proper feel and rapid sight acquisition.”

C4 Sights Diopter 3

“The rear drum has four different apertures, allowing the shooter to rapidly adjust for different light conditions. It uses a standard HK type adjustment tool for windage and elevation.”

C4 Sights Rear-1

“The front sight mounts to any commonly available same plane rail style hand guard that is the industry standard. It uses a standard fixed blade which can be replaced with the tritium front sight blade commonly sold for the HK91/94/93/ and MP5’s.”

C4 Sights Front-1

“Both front and rear sights are also compatible with any standard AR-15/M4 sights, including any standard height back up iron sights or the detachable carry handle rear sights. This offers the shooter maximum sight options. The Centurion Arms sights also take up a minimal amount of rail space leaving plenty of room to be used as back up iron sights in conjunction with Aimpoint, EOTech and most other readily available red dot sights.”

“The front and rear sight set retails for $225.00. For more information, please contact Centurion Arms at www.centurionarms.com, sales@centurionarms.net

The new Rainier Arms Ultramatch 9mm Complete Upper is here! This complete upper was designed from the ground up by the Rainier Arms competitive shooting team to meet their specs for the perfect 9mm competition upper including a 16″ Rainier Arms Ultramatch 9mm barrel, 14″ Switch Rail, Mod2 Avalanche ambi charging handle and Faxon Firearms 9mm BCG. The 16″ Ultramatch barrel ensures the ability to make closeup shots as well as distance shots with easy all while using the same mags and ammo as your handgun.

rainier-arms-ultramatch-9-pcc-9mm-complete-upper-1Designed from the ground up in partnership with the Rainier Arms Shooting team, the Rainier Arms Ultramatch 9 PCC upper was purpose built to fit the needs of serious competitive shooters. But the Ultramatch 9 is easily multi-functional to fit any serious, hard use application. It was designed not only to be fast, but reliable and accurate and depending on the purpose, it can go from tactical to practical.

We started off with the robust Rainier Arms 9mm forged upper receiver, and used our 16″ Ultrmatch 9mm barrel with a 14″ Rainier Arms Switch rail and our Mod 2 Avalanche Charging handle lastly to help cycle the Faxon Gen 2 BCG. Every high end component we used in this build is of the best quality and was run and tested by our shooting team.

rainier-arms-ultramatch-9-pcc-9mm-complete-upper-1

We’ve left the muzzle device as dealers choice, but we can easily thread one on for you, prior to shipping.

rainier-arms-ultramatch-9-pcc-9mm-complete-upper-1

Designed to teach the thumbs forward grip, XTech Tactical releases the PTG (Pistol Training Gloves)

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves

Mesa, AZ- XTech Tactical, makers of the adjustable angle ATG AR Grip and their VP9 & P30 magazines and extensions announced today the release of their PTG (Pistol Training Gloves). The patent pending gloves use hook and loop to reinforce the “thumbs forward grip”.  

Check out this quick video!

The Pistol Training Glove, or PTG from XTech Tactical teaches & reinforces the “thumbs forward” grip technique used by military, law enforcement, and professional shooters. With its grip interlock technology, the PTG’s hook and loop fasteners engage only when your hands are in the correct position.  The use of this training tool will develop habits and muscle memory that build shooting skills and confidence.

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves 3

The gloves are breathable, comfortable and made from high end materials. They come in a full range of sizes ranging from XS-L to meet almost any trainee’s needs. The gloves are fully ambidextrous and address a problem we can all relate to. When introducing a beginner pistol shooter to the thumbs forward grip it is often quickly forgotten. And without the instructor by the trainee’s side and prior to muscle memory being established, the trainee becomes unsure of themselves.  Also, in a training environment when handling a live weapon for the first time the trainee often forgets the grip and the instructor is forced to correct them, which often requires physical contact.  This can create a dangerous situation but at a minimum affects the confidence of the trainee.  With the gloves, you will find the grip will no longer need to be a major focus of training and they assist in building confidence and a more enjoyable experience!

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves

The gloves are simple to use and are an excellent tool in your range bag no matter if you are a beginner, instructor, or just act as a 2nd Amendment Ambassador and introducing others to shooting pistols!

MSRP is $34.95. They can be purchased at www.xtechtactical.com. Dealer pricing, and special NRA instructor pricing is available.  Dealer and Instructor inquiries please contact jeremy@xtechtactical.com

FightLite Logo copy 2

FightLite® Industries, a division of ARES Defense Systems® Inc. located in Melbourne, Florida announces the launch of a new e-Commerce website to help streamline the ordering process for its online customers.

Featured on the new FightLite.com website are FightLite® Industries’ popular and patented MCR® and SCR® product lines, including full rifles, upper receiver assemblies, lower receiver assemblies, performance upgrade kits, spare parts, and accessories that expand the operational envelope and overall utility of these products.

The innovative and patented FightLite® SCR® (Sport Configurable Rifle) is the first of its class of firearms that is not only legal almost anywhere in America including New York, New Jersey, California and other restrictive states, but is also the first rifle to successfully combine the traditional lines of a hunting pattern rifle with the modularity of an AR-15 rifle.

FightLite SCR Rifle with Gemtech Patrolman 5.56mm Suppressor 019-1000

The FightLite® SCR® blends strength, reliability, accuracy and rugged all-weather characteristics of America’s longest serving infantry rifle with the classic lines of an American sporter.  Lightweight, accurate and featuring a MIL-STD 1913 flat top upper receiver that accepts most modern optics, the FightLite® SCR® is designed to perform under the most demanding field, competitive shooting or tactical conditions. The multi-caliber, modular design permits the user to instantly change calibers in the field by simply pressing two pins and exchanging one upper receiver assembly for another.

Designed for optimal configuration, the FightLite® SCR® accepts most Modern Sporting Rifle accessories and parts including magazines, upper receivers, barrels, bolts, handguards and optics; so it can be easily and effectively reconfigured for each individual shooters’ style and activity. Supported by a full line of performance accessories and manufactured of the highest quality aircraft grade alloys by American craftsmen, the weatherproof and dependable FightLite® SCR® will provide its users with a lifetime of accurate shooting pleasure and can be passed down from generation to generation. SCR® – One Rifle, Any Season!®

The patented FightLite® MCR® – Mission Configurable Rifle is an 8.5 lb weapon featuring gas piston operation, a 3-second quick change barrel system and has the capability to feed from both M27-linked ammunition belts and standard AR15/M16 box magazines at user discretion.

FightLite NextGen MCR Rifle 1a

As FightLite’s premier rifle offering for the commercial marketplace, the MCR® vastly improves upon the standard AR15/M4 by offering exceptional flexibility with its dual-feed capability and quick-change barrel. This flexibility, combined with other unique features, allows users to instantly customize the MCR® without tools for virtually any use. 

The MCR® quick-change barrel allows users to configure the MCR® in seconds without the aid of tools and is available in 12” (NFA Rules Apply) and 16” inch lengths. Furthermore, the MCR® features gas-piston operation that provides greater reliability in extreme conditions, and is cleaner, cooler and more reliable in adverse conditions than the legacy direct-gas system. 

The unique design of the MCR® also allows customers to upgrade their existing rifles by simply substituting a FightLite® supplied MCR® upper receiver assembly in place of the legacy upper, which are rearward compatible to the earliest AR15’s from the 1960’s. MCR® – One Weapon, Any Mission!®

As an AR owner, you’ve probably looked at the never ending sea of red dots available for your rifle. They range from super cheap junk that won’t even last on a Nerf gun to super expensive Space Shuttle Door Gunner level stuff. One of the best affordable yet bomb proof  red dots is the Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic also known as the PRO. The PRO comes with an okay mount but its heavy, bulky and not very easy on the eyes. Thankfully SCALARWORKS, makers of some of the sexiest, lightest and strongest optic mounts on the planet have just released the LDM-PRO or Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint PRO. Check out the details below, you won’t be disappointed.

scalarworks_ops_LDM Aimpoint PRO

Easton,​​PA​​  ​​​– ​​Scalarworks ​​is ​​pleased ​​to ​​introduce​ ​the ​​Low ​​Drag ​​Mount (T​M)​​​for ​​Aimpoint PRO​ ​sights;​ ​the​ ​lightest​ ​quick-detach​​​ ​Aimpoint​ ​PRO​ ​mount​ ​in​ ​existence.

The​ ​LDM/PRO​ ​is​ ​a​ ​lightweight,​ ​high-strength,​ ​low-profile,​ ​quick-detach​ ​optic​ ​mount​ ​for​ ​with MIL-STD-1913​ ​Picatinny​ ​rails,​ ​that​ ​is​ ​compatible​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Aimpoint​ ​PRO,​ ​Aimpoint​ ​ACO,​ ​Aimpoint CompM2,​ ​and​ ​Aimpoint​ ​CompM3,​ ​and​ ​most​ ​other​ ​30mm​ ​tube​ ​sights.

scalarworks_ops_LDM Aimpoint PRO 2

The​ ​Scalarworks​ ​LDM/PRO​ ​features​ ​a​ ​user​ ​friendly​ ​and​ ​low-profile​ ​30mm​ ​ring.​ ​The​ ​Scalarworks ring​ ​has​ ​a​ ​precision​ ​fitted​ ​alloy​ ​steel​ ​hinge​ ​that​ ​ensures​ ​even​ ​pressure​ ​around​ ​the​ ​optic,​ ​without requiring​ ​the​ ​tedious​ ​and​ ​imprecise​ ​setup​ ​that​ ​traditional​ ​rings​ ​do.​ ​Twin​ ​oversize​ ​CNC​ ​machined shoulder​ ​screws​ ​provide​ ​even​ ​tension​ ​and​ ​act​ ​as​ ​structural​ ​elements,​ ​making​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​ring​ ​assembly phenomenally​ ​rigid.

Like​​ every ​​Scalarworks ​​Low ​​Drag ​​Mount (T​M)​, ​​the ​​LDM/PRO​ ​has ​​the​ ​highest ​​strength-to-weight ratio of​ ​any​ ​quick​ ​detach​ ​mount​ ​on​ ​the​ ​market.​ ​It’s​ ​tubular​ ​monolithic​ ​base​ ​is​ ​CNC​ ​machined​ ​from​ ​ultra high-strength​ ​7075-T6​ ​aluminum,​ ​and​ ​features​ ​our​ ​patented​ ​recoil-proof​ ​thumbscrew​ ​with​ ​ball​ ​detent mechanism.​ ​It​ ​also​ ​has​ ​the​ ​same​ ​precision​ ​telescoping​ ​clamp​ ​as​ ​our​ ​popular​ ​Aimpoint​ ​Micro,​ ​and Trijicon​ ​MRO​ ​mounts,​ ​which​ ​ensures​ ​a​ ​​repeatable​ ​zero​​ ​with​ ​each​ ​installation.

The​ ​LDM/PRO​ ​weighs​ ​less​ ​than​ ​2.45oz​ ​(in​ ​lower-third​ ​height)​ ​which​ ​is​ ​less​ ​than​ ​half​ ​that​ ​of Aimpoint’s​ ​bundled​ ​QRP2​ ​mount.​ ​The​ ​LDM/PRO​ ​is​ ​proudly​ ​made​ ​in​ ​the​ ​USA,​ ​and​ ​is​ ​available​ ​in​ ​both Absolute​ ​and​ ​Lower-Third​ ​Co-Witness​ ​height​ ​variants.

Ever since I SBR’d my QC10 9mm AR I have wanted to put a Battle Arms VERT PDW Stock on it. I have the VERT PDW Stock on one of my other SBR’s and it truly is one of the only PDW stocks that I feel can be used on just about any AR, even full size rifles because of its integrated cheek rest. The only holdback was that the standard buffer. While it works great with 5.56 and 300BLK, it wasn’t designed to work with a 9mm AR’s. While similar to a standard AR, a 9mm AR is definitely a fickle beast. After some months of testing, fine tuning and tweaking, Battle Arms is ready to release their new 9mm Buffer for the VERT PDW Stock.

Battle Arms 9mm VERT PDW Stock 1

The new Battle Arms 9mm Buffer weighs 5.7 ounces which is a little lighter than you might expect to run on your 9mm AR (I have run as high as 10 ounce buffers) but what makes this different and  is their patented, Recoil Reducing, Dual Spring Buffer Design which will help soften the recoil impulse and smooth things out considerably. 

Battle Arms 9mm VERT PDW Stock 2

The BAD VERT 9mm PDW Buffer will be sold as an upgrade item for those of us who already have a VERT stock in hand and will also available as a complete 9mm VERT PDW Stock System as well. 

Battle Arms 9mm VERT PDW Stock 3Battle Arms 9mm VERT PDW Stock 4

No matter how you slice it, this is an awesome upgrade to one of, if not THE best PDW stocks on the market. I have a BAD VERT PDW Stock that has been waiting for this day and soon will get put to work on the 9mm QC10 SBR. You can buy the buffer or the complete stock system at the links below. If you snag one, make sure you tag us in your pics on Facebook and Instagram so we can see what you guys are all running.

Aero Precision has grown a ton over the past 5 years. I still remember when they made standard forged upper and lower receivers and the COP Upper and that was it. Nowadays they make everything from AR-15 and AR-10 receivers to handguards to scope mounts to complete AR-15 and AR-10 rifles. Not to mention their capabilities with their sister companies Ballistic Advantage for barrels and VG6 Precision for muzzle devices. 

For a while now they have offered a handguard with a larger inside diameter which works awesome for tucking a suppressor underneath etc but some of their customers have requested a more low profile, slim handguard. That is why they started designing the new ATLAS S-ONE handguard.

AERO Precision Banner

The ATLAS S-ONE is the newest addition to the Aero Precision Handguard lineup. Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum, the S-ONE line of handguards are designed with size and weight in mind, providing the perfect handguard for your lightweight build. Our proprietary ATLAS attachment system is a durable and dependable mounting platform, maintaining a slim profile while still providing the strength and stability customers have grown to love from Aero Precision handguards.

AERO Precision atlas-s-one Handguard MLOK KeyMod

The new Aero Taper Lock Attachment System (ATLAS) is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It features 2 mirrored tapered locking nuts that provide evenly distributed clamping pressure across a custom engineered barrel nut with use of a turnbuckle screw. A ratcheting detent further secures the design while providing positive registration during installation. By design, the even pressure of the ATLAS system avoids distortion of the handguard often seen with current applications during installation.

atlas-s-one-fde-parts-detail_1

You’ll also notice at the 12 o’clock position on the handguard there are raised lines. When I handled the first ATLAS S-ONE off the machines at TriggrCon last month, the first thing I noticed was how good it felt in the hand and that those raised lines add just a little extra traction without being uncomfortable at all. 

Aero Atlas S One Handguard

Aero Precision is will be offering the new ATLAS S-ONE handguards in 12″ and 15″ lengths (7″ and 9″ coming soon) with your choice of KeyMod and MLOK and Black or FDE. And if you want to take it one step further, you can even get it paired with the new Gen2 Forged Upper as well.

AERO Precision s-one-atlas-handguard-combo

You can get your order in now for this first run of ATLAS S-ONE handguards with an expected ship date of 8/25/17. Head on over to www.AeroPrecisionUSA.com to pick out your new ATLAS S-ONE handguard.
