BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 – Released for Purchase Today

Posted on October 10th, 2014 by ar15news

Earlier today, Bravo Company Manufacturing released their much anticipated BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 for purchase. Ever since we started seeing pics of these stocks in use with some of BCM’s industry partners its been on the must have list. The new stock is extremely low profile with an anti-snag design. It also features a new latch system that is more robust than your usual stock latch which will keep your rifles stock functioning correctly after being dropped or “mortaring” during malfunction clearing. 

Another thing that sets the Mod 0 stock apart from the rest is that it is modular. One such feature is the VBOST or Vehicle Born Operations Sling Tab can be added or removed. This tab is for positioning a thick rubber band, bungee or shooters riggers band to secure your sling to the rifle when not in use, especially during vehicle born operations so your sling doesn’t get caught on anything. If you’re expecting a steep price you’ll be pleasantly surprised that these are just $55.95 which is awesome for an all American made stock. Check out the pics and additional details below then head on over to www.BravoCompanyMfg.com to snag one for yourself before they’re all gone. I just purchased one myself.

NEW!! Blitzkrieg Components Luminescent Chevron Night Sight

Posted on October 9th, 2014 by ar15news

Quite a while ago I introduced you guys to the Blitzkrieg Components Chevron front sight post. Its a drop-in replacement for your standard front sight post that gives you a really sharp “Chevron” aiming point and a bright white stripe to makes for quick target acquisition in pretty much any lighting condition…that is except for in the dark. Seems like every day someone would post on their Facebook page that they wish there was a night sight option. Blitzkrieg Components listened and accepted the challenge. The new Luminescent Chevron Night Sight is officially available for purchase and looks to be another winner from Blitzkrieg Components. 

The Night Sight version appears Yellow in the day light and is easily installed in pretty much any front sight that accepts mil spec sight posts. Shown below is the new Luminescent Chevron Night Sight and what it looks like installed in a Magpul MBUS sight.

Turn the lights out and the Yellow strip now shines a nice Green color. The sight luminescent strip can be charged with most any light but Sun Light or a bright Flashlight work best.

“Typically, in total darkness after being charged you can expect it to glow very bright for 5 minutes, bright for 20-30 minutes and at a lower level for several hours. This works very well to have a very bright glow when transitioning from daylight to a dark room and as your eyes adjust to lower light levels, the lower level glow will still appear bright and very easy to pick up.”

The new Luminescent Chevron Front Sight Post is available right now at BlitzkriegComponents.com for just $44.95. Be sure to snag some before they’re all gone. They also have their standard White Stripe and Solid Black Chevron sights as well if you don’t need the night sight option or want to save a few bucks.

NEW!! HexMag FDE and OD Green Mags and 10 & 15 Round Mags

Posted on October 7th, 2014 by ar15news

HexMag brand magazines have really been picking up in popularity lately. They introduced a Black AR-15 magazine a while back with a cool raised Hex pattern that actually adds some additional grip to the mag. They also feature a unique magazine identification system called “HexID” which lets you change the color of the follower and base plate retention tab for quick identification.

Today, HexMag is introducing their new FDE (Flat Dark Earth) and OD Green colored 30 round magazines with matching follower and base pad retention tab colors as well. They are also introducing their new line of “TRUE” 10/30 and 15/30 state compliant magazines. They were nice enough to send me some pre-production samples to take some pics of and let me help them introduce the new products.

People have been asking for an FDE and OD Green versions of the HexMag for a while now. The FDE and OD Green HexMags match very well with most of the popular AR furniture on the market and as with all HexMags, they come with the standard Orange guts.

With the introduction of the new FDE and OD Green colors, HexMag is also introducing matching colored internals as well as part of their HexID system. That means if you didn’t want the standard Orange follower and base pad retention tab you will be able to purchase the FDE or OD Green internals.

The last new product they are introducing today is their “TRUE” 10/30 and 15/30 state compliant magazines. Basically these are magazines that will only accept 10 or 15 rounds but look like 30 round magazines. The reason they are called “TRUE” is that they have a shorter spring and a riser inside the mag that makes them either a 10 or 15 round mag. The black risers in the photos below are just 3D printed models but give you an idea of what they will look like. HexMag designed the risers with a contour that allows you to wrap some Paracord, etc around the riser. On the 10 round model the riser is longer so I decided to try wrapping some Fishing Line and putting a little package of hooks, weights and a jig in there which fit perfectly. On the 15 round model I put a few matches, cotton balls and a striking surface inside. This works great because the spring stops at the top of the riser so there is no possibility of the items getting damaged or inhibit operation of the mag. Obviously I would not sacrifice 15-20 rounds in a mag personally just to have a little emergency bug out stash but for those who live in states with limits on magazine size, this is a pretty cool feature.

All of these new mags will be available early November 2014 so you won’t have to wait very long. I can tell you I’ve been using the Black model HexMags for a while now and really like them. As soon as I hear these are available for purchase I will be sure to let you guys know. I’ve also listed all of the ways you can follow HexMag below.
