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.

**NEW** SI Ulitmate Dust Cover FLAG v2

Posted on December 27th, 2016 by ar15news

SI (Strike Industries) just released another version of their SI Ultimate Dust Cover with a new Flag design. The previous version had more of a looping / flowing flag design. The new design features more straight lines that go better with the lines of an AR15. The coolest part about the SI UDCs is that they can be installed in seconds without needing to remove the handguard. They have a spring loaded pin that can be manually retracted for easy installation. 

The new Flag model of the SI Ultimate Dust Cover is finally in stock and shipping now in black and FDE!

**NEW** Cross Machine Tool UHPR MOD2 M-LOK Handguards

Posted on December 16th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’re an AR builder, you’d have to be hiding under a rock to not know who Cross Machine Tool is. They started out making billet lower receivers, then added billet uppers, innovative billet lowers with intregrated PDW stock systems, AR-10 receiver sets and muzzle brakes. Most recently they have introduced their UHPR line of handguards. First was the MOD1 which deleted all but the very front of the 12 o’clock picatinny rail. Today the new UHPR MOD2 M-LOK rails are available and they feature a full 12 o’clock picatinny rail section with M-LOK mounting slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions.

ETS Group Introduces 6 New .40 Cal Glock Mags

Posted on December 16th, 2016 by ar15news

ETS Group Glock mags have been a huge hit ever since their introduction last year. Part of the reason for their popularity is that they cost quite a bit less than an OEM Glock mag and the transparent body looks awesome too. I bought some of the 31rd 9mm Glock mags from ETS a while back to use in my QuarterCircle10 AR9 and they have been awesome. They function flawlessly and are the only mags I have that will reliably lock the bolt back on an empty mag. They currently offer eight different 9mm Glock magazines and now they have added six new .40 Cal Glock magazines. Those new mags are 9rd, 13rd, 16rd, Competition Legal 19rd, Competition Legal 24rd and a 31rd. 

ETS Group 40 Cal Glock Mags

These new ETS Group .40 Cal Glock Mags start at just $16.99 but ETS is offering an introductory discount code which will save you 15% off. Just use the code “ETS40” during checkout at www.ETSGroup.us.

Tyrant Designs CNC Introduces Their New MOD ForeGrip

Posted on December 14th, 2016 by ar15news

Seems like Tyrant Designs keeps making cooler and cooler looking products. This new MOD ForeGrip is the first in a series of ForeGrips that will be made by Tyrant Designs CNC. The main body of the grip is metal with polymer finger straps and is compatible with both KeyMod and MLOK handguards. Definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of this line. Check out the press release and images below.

TYRANT DESIGNS CNC ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST OF THEIR NEW LINE OF FOREGRIPS, THE MOD ForeGrip SERIES!

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips, has announced the release of their new line of foregrips. The MOD ForeGrip, available in black, red, blue (soon), and grey is CNC machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum. The grip weighs in at a lightweight 1.7 ounces and is fully M-LOK and Keymod compatible.

Tyrant Designs CNC MOD ForeGrip 1Photo by Down Range Photography

The MOD ForeGrip is the first installment in our new line of foregrips! Designed to match our very successful MOD AR-15 Pistol Grip, it too has an aluminum body with a polymer finger strap. With a specially designed mounting system, it is compatible with both M-LOK and Keymod rails. Meaning with just a quick change in hardware (that is supplied with the grip when purchased) it can be mounted on either type of rail system. We believe that this is the type of versatility that operators need in order to furnish multiple weapons. The polymer strap helps the operator instantly feel comfortable with the foregrip and give them the confidence needed for any type of situation. We feel that foregrips are a great solution for anyone who desires more muzzle control, and we look forward to adding more to this line in 2017!  “

Tyrant Designs CNC is an AR accessories manufacturer based just outside of Chicago. They have had several successful designs for AR pistol grips and have plans to expand into other AR accessories for 2017.

Another cool feature is that you don’t have to pick between MLOK or KeyMod as it will work on both.

**NEW** Griffin Armament M2 (Micro Modular) Sights

Posted on November 29th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’ve been looking for BUIS lately you’ve probably noticed that what used to be a one or two dog show has all of a sudden become a main event with some really nice contenders. Now you have to decide… “Are these bulky sights okay or should I look for a super compact set?”, “Do I want to go really cheap or really expensive?”, “Do I want normal 90 degree BUIS or should I go for a set of offset ones?”, on and on the decision making goes until your head is spinning. Apparently Griffin Armament has had this same experience because their new M2 (Micro Modular) Sights address all of that and more. The new M2 Sights are very compact, can be user configured in 90 degree or 45 degree offset and the price point even for the complete “Full Deployment Kit” is right in line or cheaper than many non-modular BUIS.

griffin-armament-m2-micro-modular-sights-1

The M2 Sights can be purchased in a 90 Degree Kit, 45 Degree Offset Kit or the Full Deployment Kit which comes with both 90 Degree and 45 Degree mount plates. The Full Deployment Kit retails for just $185. They also sell just the mounting plates, so if you go for a 90 Degree now instead of the full kit you can still convert them to 45 Degree Offset BUIS down the road. Read more about this awesome new product below or head on over to www.GriffinArmament.com.

griffin-armament-black-friday-2016-sale-1

Griffin Armament is proud to introduce affordable Micro Modular Sights (M2) compatible with Picatinny rail systems. Griffin M2 sights offer an industry first, patent pending, modular base plate system. Constructed from QPQ Treated 17-4 and ordnance grade steel, Griffin M2 Sights were designed to be the correct product for every backup sight application.

griffin-armament-m2-micro-modular-sights-3

A shooter can use these durable, low profile sights in a 12 o’clock mounted application while having the flexibility to reconfigure them to ambidextrous 45 degree angle sights using the alternate and available angle plates. This flexibility ensures these sights can be used by anyone and will never end up in a box of undesirable legacy kit. The full M2 deployment kit includes the front and rear sight assemblies as well as both vertical and angled bases for a complete modular system. However, sights and bases are available separately for users who wish to buy parts as needed. The front A2 sight provides elevation adjustment while ensuring maximum aftermarket support for your favorite post, be it tritium, fiber optic, match grade, or otherwise. An extremely low profile, snag resistant, slotted rear windage screw, affords easy but more importantly secure adjustability.

griffin-armament-m2-micro-modular-sights-3

Robust spring tension of both front and rear flip up assemblies ensures accurate repeatability every time the sight towers are actuated.

Never before has a product in this category offer this degree of flexibility. Griffin M2 Sights have a minimal foot print, and are among the smallest backup sights on the market. For a mere 2 and half ounces your rifle can be equipped with a durable iron sight system, to provide aiming capability in rain, snow, or fog, on or off axis without dependence on batteries or glass.
