Aero Precision Automatic Flip-Up BUIS

Posted on June 10th, 2016 by ar15news

Aero Precision already makes pretty much everything else for an AR so why not a nice set of BUIS (Back Up Iron Sights) too? The Aero Precision AR-15 Flip-Up Sights feature an all metal 7-series aluminum construction and made right here in the USA. Push the button on the side and the spring action automatically flips them up into position. These can be purchased separately or as a complete set and are pretty affordable for a nice set of BUIS. Take a look at the pics and specs below.

Geissele Automatics Super 42 Spring and Buffer

Posted on June 6th, 2016 by ar15news

Earlier today, Geissele Automatics quietly introduced a new product. The Super 42 Spring and Buffer utilizes 3 separate wires to form the spring which is stronger, more durable and quieter than a traditional AR buffer spring. The buffer comes as an H1 buffer but can be easily upgraded to an H2 or H3 buffer by purchasing the additional Tungsten weights and adding them to the buffer. Technical information and pictures listed below. 

Geissele Super 42 Buffer and Spring

The Geissele Super 42 Spring was designed to improve the function and reliability of your AR-15 pattern rifle. Its unique spring design uses three independent strands of wire, just like the German MG42 Machine Gun. This concept acts as a harmonic damper and energy absorber by allowing the springs to flex separately from each other. This flex helps displace excess energy which decreases the chance of spring failure and assists with making your AR-15 more reliable.

Compared to the stock spring, The Geissele Super 42 Spring has a decreased tendency to lose length and force over a given round count. As an added bonus, it removes the annoying spring reverberations (twang) heard and felt by the shooter through the buttstock. The Super 42 Spring has a 15% stronger average return force than the standard buffer spring. This will assist in stripping rounds out of the magazine when operating with a dirty weapon or when using steel-case ammo.

You can purchase the new Geissele Super 42 Spring and Buffer at www.Geissele.com.

Its easy to underestimate the importance of a good gas block. The PRIMO Gas Block is an ultra high quality gas block with the ability to use the included set screws or you can go one step further and pin the gas block to the barrel for an bomb proof setup. Its also decently affordable so you don’t have to spend a ton more for a quality product.

A Disposable High Quality Armorers Wrench??

Posted on April 25th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve spent a lot of money on Armorers Tools so I can build them faster, better and easier. Unfortunately there are a ton of overpriced junk tools out there. One of the first tools I bought was one of the long cast metal Armorers Wrench that I found by searching online. It had a very thick layer of brittle paint on it so the specs were off and hardly worked. One day I snapped the castle nut wrench off of the wrench just trying to tighten down a buffer tube. Just junk and worst part is it cost me $35. 

Fast forward to now, the guys at Griffin Armament are hoping to fill in the need for an inexpensive, high quality Armorers Wrench with their new $9.95 Griffin Armorers Wrench. This wrench is made of 4140 Steel that is hardened to 48RC with a Black Oxide finish. This one single wrench comes with a 1/2″ Drive Slot to attach to a ratchet or bar, 5/8″ and 3/4″ open end wrenches, 3 prong buffer tube wrench and …. a bottle opener. 🙂 

This tool should be all but indestructible but at just $9.95, if you happen to destroy it somehow, the price makes it what I consider somewhat disposable and you just buy another one. Don’t spend the same or more on an Armorers Wrench made of crap metals or bad design. Snag one of these from www.GriffinArmament.com.

Griffin Armament Armorers Wrench

The Griffin Armorers wrench is a 4140 steel wrench hardened to 48RC. Black oxide and oil dipped. Some finish irregularity is common to this industrial tool. The wrench allows installation of Griffin Muzzle devices, Castle nuts on AR firearms, Griffin Low Pro Rigid™ rails, and interfaces with many Griffin Silencers for maintenance or configuring. This tool allows easy access to your favorite bottled beverage.

Features
– 4140 Steel hardened to 48RC
– Black oxide / oil dip finish
– 1/2″ drive compatible
– 5/8″ and 3/4″ open end wrenches
– 3 prong CAR wrench geometry
– Bottle opener

AERO Precision QUANTUM Series AR-15 Handguards

Posted on April 25th, 2016 by ar15news

AERO Precision has just introduced their new Quantum Series Handguard. The Quantum Series is similar to their other hand guards that are designed to mount directly to their M4E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver but you can also add an optional barrel nut at checkout to use this handguard in conjunction without the M4E1 Enhanced Upper. The hand guards are very simple with no 1913 rail section at the top but it does have a spot at the front of the rail to mount a small rail section for use with Front BUIS.

What surprised me the most was the price point on these. Both KeyMod and M-LOK versions are available in 7″, 9″, 12″ and 15″ and range from as little as $65 for the 7″ without a barrel nut or up to $110 for the 15″ including the optional barrel nut. That is extremely affordable. You can check out the information and pictures below. These are available for purchase now at www.AEROPrecision.com.

The design features multiple mounting surfaces and is compatible with our M4E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver, but can also be used on a standard threaded upper with a BAR Barrel Nut. Also included is a 4 slot picatinny rail section for mounting a front sight.

Vortex Optics – Defender Flip Caps for Riflescopes

Posted on April 15th, 2016 by ar15news

Vortex Optics has introduced a new set of Scope Flip Caps designed to be used on their extremely popular riflescopes. The new Defender Flip Caps are made to be flexible but durable. The caps are spring loaded and instead of just flipping up in the way can be folded flat, at an angle or straight up to use with a customizable dope disk that fits into the rear scope cap. Check out the pics and video below. The new Defender Flip Caps are available now at www.VortexOptics.com.

DEFENDER™ FLIP CAP EYEPIECE

New for 2016. This is the last flip cap you will ever need! Virtually indestructible, this cap will fit snugly on nearly all Vortex Optics and features a snap flat spring that will keep your line of sight unobstructed.

Rifle ranges the world over are littered with broken flip caps. This is one cap you will most likely never see in a flip cap boneyard. The E-10 cap has three stop positions. The first vertical, to put your dope disk (optional accessory) literally right in your face. The second at a 45° and the third at 90° to lay flat back.

The E-10 fits all Vortex® Riflescopes except the 1-inch tube Viper® model VPR-M-01BDC, VPR-M-04BDC and VPR-M-03BDC.

Outside diameter: 40-46 mm | 1.57-1.81 inches

Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle Brake

Posted on April 11th, 2016 by ar15news

You may have notices that 9mm ARs are all the rage right now. There are lots of companies making accessories and parts for 9mm ARs but one thing that hasn’t caught up is the availability of 9mm muzzle brakes and compensators. I just happened to run across this one the other day. It is the new MD9 9mm muzzle brake from Cloudbreak.

Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle brake 1Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle brake 1

This muzzle brake reminds me more of a compensator with all of the porting on it but from what I’ve read there is a noticeable reduction in recoil as well. It has a Black Ion Nitride finish, machined from 416 Stainless Steel and also has the 1/2×28 thread pitch which is the same as some of the most popular 9mm barrels such as the ones by Quarter Circle 10. 

Cloudbreak MD9 9mm Muzzle brake 1

The new Cloudbreak MD9 9mm muzzle brake is available now through Rainier Arms for just $59.95 which seems like a pretty reasonable price point. 

**Edit: I just found out if you need one that has the 1/2×36 thread pitch they are available through Pantel Tactical.**
