NEW!! Midwest Industries Blast Can

Posted on March 1st, 2017 by ar15news

Midwest Industries just announced their new Blast Can muzzle device and I’ve got to say, it looks pretty nice. It is 1.2″ wide and appears to be somewhere around 3″ long. The 1.2″ outside diameter means it will fit underneath a large number of rail systems which is a very popular setup. The fluting along the sides gives it a nicer look as well. The other nice part is that everyone should be able to afford one with an MSPR at just $34.95.

NEW!! Faxon Firearms AR9 BCG – COLT / Glock Hybrid

Posted on February 13th, 2017 by ar15news

Faxon Firearms has really been branching out lately into new arenas but this one came as a surprise. The new Faxon Firearms AR9 BCG is for the super popular Pistol Caliber Carbines. Instead of choosing between Glock mag compatible or COLT mag compatible design, Faxon made this one so it will work with both. They’ve also made it a one piece design so the key is machined in instead of bolted on, it has a full auto carrier shape and a Black Nitride finish. 

Faxon Firearms AR9 COLT Glock Bolt 1Faxon Firearms AR9 COLT Glock Bolt 1Faxon Firearms AR9 COLT Glock Bolt 1

We just can’t help not accepting the status quo. Bolt carrier groups are available aplenty, but few could meet our exacting standards for performance and value. Seeing current offerings as just the starting point, we set out to ensure the best options are available for our demanding customers.

Improvements include cuts to ensure both Glock and Colt-style lower receiver compatibility. The key is machined directly into the bolt carrier – no fasteners to check or worry about. Finally, we keep the full-auto compatibility for use with new binary-style trigger systems.

DETAILED SPECIFICATIONS:

Carrier & Integrated Key:
– Compatibility: GLOCK & COLT – Style Lower Receivers
– Carrier: MIL-SPEC 8620 Steel Material
– Key: One-Piece Integrated Key
– Fully Heat Treated
– Forward Assist Serrations
– M16 (FULL-AUTO) Compatible
– QPQ – Salt Bath Nitrided

The new Faxon Firearms AR9 Glock & Colt lower compatible BCG is 1-2 weeks out but you can pre-order yours by emailing pat@faxonfirearms.com. More pictures and pricing available at www.FaxonFirearms.com.

Posted on February 10th, 2017 by ar15news

**Press Release**

February, 2017–Loveland, CO- Hexmag, LLC– maker of the most advanced and versatile AR-15/AR-10 platform magazines on the market, proudly announces its move into high-quality pistol magazines that will be available in early Spring of 2017.

Hexmag Glock Pistol Mag

These robust new lightweight (1.4 ounces) magazines feature a 17-round capacity for the Glock Model 17 and are also compatible with Glock 17C, G26, G34 and G17L models. Hexmag will follow launch of the 17-round magazine with a 10-round version for California residents and a 30-round version for those who need a super-high capacity magazine.

Hexmag’s Glock compatible magazines are available in either Black or Flat Dark Earth (FDE) matte finish and come with Hexmag’s patented gripping surface and a textured front-side “training” pattern for fast and easy indexing when reloading.

Constructed of Hexmag’s high-impact UV stabilized PolyHex2 Advanced Composite, these are tough magazines designed for hard work. Hexmag uses a proprietary Fusiform heat-treated stainless steel spring set at OEM tension for reliable feeding even after long-term storage when kept fully loaded.

“We listened closely to the market,” says Hexmag’s marketing director Dave Smith, “and saw the need for an alternative polymer Glock compatible magazine that was affordable, lightweight and as tough as our AR-15 and AR-10 magazines – and then refined and upgraded the design by integrating the classic hexagonal pattern for enhanced grip and indexing reference points.”

It gets better! These new pistol magazines feature Hexmag’s industry-first pistol identification system, the HexID Color Identification System perfected on its AR-15/AR-10 magazines. The base plate can be easily removed without tools and the follower and base latch plate color changed to designate which ammunition/bullet is in the magazine for quick identification.

MSRP: $16.99

Hexmag pistol and rifle magazines are made in the USA and come with Hexmag’s Lifetime Warranty!

NEW!! Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring

Posted on January 31st, 2017 by ar15news

Armaspec introduced a few new products this year at SHOT Show but the one I know many people are super excited about is the new Stealth Recoil Spring. The Stealth Recoil Spring is a drop-in replacement for your AR15 buffer and buffer spring that eliminates the noise from the spring rubbing on the inside of the buffer tube and helps the rifle function quieter and smoother. They also incorporated a rubber o-ring on the face of the Stealth Recoil Spring that removes any metal on metal contact.

The Stealth Recoil Spring is a self-contained multi-stage drop-in replacement for your standard buffer and spring. Designed to reduced felt recoil as well as keep the buffer spring from rubbing against the inner wall of the buffer tube. The buffer mass is designed to stay under constant tension against the bolt carrier and the O-ring on the head of the buffer mass prevents metal on metal contact. Pat. Pend.

The Stealth Recoil Spring comes in 5 variations.
– SRS-Carbine at about 3.3oz equivalent
– SRS-H at around 3.8oz equivalent
– SRS-H2 at around 4.7oz equivalent
– SRS-9 at around 5.3oz equivalent
– SRS-H3 at around 5.6oz equivalent

Another awesome thing about the new Stealth Recoil Spring is the price. Armaspec has kept the price to a very affordable $79. At that price, if they work as advertised, I’ll be using these in many builds going forward. These are showing out of stock now but sounds like they should be available for purchase very soon at www.Armaspec.com.

NEW!! ZEV Adjustable Single Stage Rifle (SSR) Trigger

Posted on January 26th, 2017 by ar15news

Following the announcement of a merger between Zev Technologies and Mega Arms came another awesome announcement. Zev Technologies is introducing their new SSR (Single State Rifle) trigger for AR15 rifles. The Zev SSR is fully adjustable and comes with two hammer springs to give you the option of a 3-3.5lb pull or 5-5.5lb pull. Check out the picture and details below.

The new ZEV Technologies SSR (Single Stage Rifle) Trigger was designed to bridge the gap between the multitude of two stage triggers intended for duty use, and single stage competition triggers.

Zev Technologies SSR Single Stage Rifle Trigger 1Zev Technologies SSR Single Stage Rifle Trigger 1

The ZEV SSR Trigger’s engagement, over travel and reset can be adjusted to personal preference. One of the most unique design factors of the new ZEV SSR Trigger is that all adjustments are under detent retention which eliminates the need for thread locker and the possibility of failure from vibration or improper installation.  Each unit ships with two hammer springs allowing for a 5lb to 5.5lb trigger pull weight or a 3lb to 3.5lb trigger pull weight depending on which hammer spring is used. The trigger bow has been extended for a better user interface allowing the pad of the finger to easily find its natural position when firing.  Get the most out of your duty or sporting rifle with the enhanced features of the ZEV SSR Trigger.

Features:
– Easy User Install Providing A Crisp Single Stage Trigger Break
– Adjustable to Most Lower Receivers for Sear Engagement and Over Travel

Rebel Arms M16 and Enhanced BCGs On Sale

Posted on January 11th, 2017 by ar15news

Rebel Arms has both of their awesome looking AR-15 BCGs on sale right now. They offer both a standard M16 style BCG and an Enhanced BCG, both featuring a Black Nitride finish and Rebel Arms “REBEL” logo. Below you’ll find a picture details on the two different BCGs. Not sure how you could go wrong, both look like great BCGs and Black Nitride is my preferred BCG finish.

Rebel Arms BCGs

M16 Nitride BCG: Priced at: $155.99 Sale price of: $136.99
Our high quality Nitride Bolt Carrier Group features the newest revolution in coating. Unlike phoshpated or parkerizing, this bolt carrier has a black nitrided surface that reduces the need to apply oil to the carrier that can attract dirt, dust, unburned powder, and carbon and lead to cycling failures.

The nitriding process creates an ultra-low friction coefficient to the surface. When you feel the surface of the carrier you will notice that it is much smoother to the touch than a standard bolt carrier.  It also means less heat generated by metal on metal contact and also provides for easier cleaning.

The process hardens the steel as well, which makes this carrier have an increased resistance to wear thereby increasing the life of of the component and increases the amount of shots you can run over the life of it. The Gas Key comes already side-staked properly to the carrier.

Carrier:
– 8620 Carrier
– 9310 heat Treated MPI Bolt
– Heat Treated
– Case Hardened
– Black Nitride Finish
– High Lubricity

Enhanced Nitride M16 BCG: Priced at: $181.99 Sale price of: $159.99
The enhanced bolt carrier is designed to reduce carrier tilt/cant during recoil and increasing reliability by strategically relocating key bearing surfaces. The enhanced carrier has fewer points of contact resulting in less friction area and the slight increase in carrier mass extends dwell time and ensures proper gas pressures for reliable extraction.
– Material: Case Hardened 8620 Steel
– Finish: Black Nitride. This advanced low friction coating minimizes the need for lubricants.
– Gas key: 4130 Steel, attached with Grade 8 hardware and properly staked into a milled “valley” to ensure proper positioning
– Ejection port area is milled with added material for more strength and rigidity
– Cam Pin: Hardened 4340 cam pin
– Firing Pin: Mil Spec firing pin made of 8740 steel, center-less ground and Hard Chrome coated

Bolt Assembly: The Bolt is “True” Mil Spec dimension and external surfaces are CNC ground after heat treat for a precision fit.
– Material: Case Hardened 9310 Steel.
– Finish: All Bolt components Shot Peened & Manganese Phosphate or Black Nitride
– Extractor: 4340 Steel, Manganese Phosphate coated
– Mil Spec Extractor Spring & O-Ring Combination
– MPI: Magnetic Particle Inspected
– HPT: High Pressure Test

NEW!! KAK Industry 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit

Posted on January 11th, 2017 by ar15news

I’ve been known to tinker and tweak my guns until I get them running perfect. One of the AR’s I’ve done this the most on is my Quarter Circle 10 9mm. The blowback operation of these 9mm guns creates a ton of energy and gets the BCG moving at a very high rate creating a lot more felt recoil than you would ever guess and can also lead to beating up and breaking parts like bolt catches, etc. I’ve mostly been swapping around different springs and buffers going heavier and heavier.

QuarterCircle10 9mm Buffer Setup

KAK Industry just rolled out a brand new 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit that lets you swap out weights inside the buffer to adjust the overall weight of the buffer in stages up to 10 ounces.

KAK Industry 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit

This new KAK 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit would have really come in handy while I was trying to figure out the perfect buffer weight to get my build running like a sewing machine. It is also perfect for making adjustments for Suppressed, UnSuppressed, Subsonic Rounds, Full Auto, etc. If you’re tweaking your AR9, you definitely need to check out this new 9mm Configurable Buffer Kit from KAK Industry.
