New Front Sights Options from Blitzkrieg Components

Posted on November 1st, 2016 by ar15news

**Press Release**

Blitzkrieg Components, LLC has just released several new options for their series of AR style front sight posts. First is a new bright orange color option that is now available in addition to the black, white and luminescent green options previously available. The new orange stripes are now available on their patented AR Chevron sight post and AR Tritium Chevron sight post, as well as their Spike shaped sight post for the Magpul® MBUS PRO® sights.

All of the Blitzkrieg Components AR style sight posts are compatible with any front sight that accepts a standard front sight post. Installation is a simple drop-in process and models are available with a custom stainless steel sight tool if desired. The models for the Magpul® MBUS PRO® install in seconds with no tools and provide some great new options for those popular sights. All of the Blitzkrieg Components sight posts are machined from stainless steel with a tough black nitride finish. The contrasting paint stripes are applied into a machined groove using the most durable compounds for long service life. For more information visit their website at www.blitzkriegcomponents.com.

For the seasoned shooter, making adjustments on their go to optic may seem like second nature. For a novice or new shooter, making those same adjustments can take some time to figure out. Now throw in different optics with different click values and even an experienced shooter can get thrown off. ZeroBravo has just introduced the new S.M.A.R.T. Card which is designed as a tool to help you know right away what each click of virtually any optic represents from 7 meters all the way out to 400 meters.

The Simple Marksman Adjustment Reference Table, or S.M.A.R.T. Card, was developed to provide a simple answer to the question we have all had on the range. “How many clicks do I need to move up an inch at this distance?”

While the concept is simple, amassing the data into a useful format was key. For example – The DeltaPoint Pro or Trijicon RMR moves 1” per click at 100 yards. But how does that translate on your pistol at 7 yards? The answer to that question is 1 click moves 4/57” at 7 yards. Great! That is useless information to someone trying to figure out how many clicks to move their adjustment. So it is simplified to 1/14 – so it would take 14 clicks to move it 1 inch at 7 yards.

All the data was calculated for both yards and meters and the average was used. This number was then simplified to fractions of 1/* in order to give the shooter or coach a useful reference for how far to move that particular optic at the referenced distance. An example of this is that the M4 rear sight 3/4” per click at 100 meters. At 25 meters, it moves 6/35”. To simplify this, we change this to 7/35” – or simply 1/5”. So now you know you need to go 5 clicks at 25 meters to move 1”. While we freely acknowledge that the mathematical conversions are not exact, we feel that the difference of 1/35” is negligible and the referenced measurement is much more useful as the simple fraction.

zero-bravo-smart-card-1

In addition to the data referenced on our wheel from 7m to 400 meters, the card also contains 2 rulers for measuring your groups as well as two trajectory illustrations for instructors to better explain this concept to their students.

zero-bravo-smart-card-1

The card is made from water proof die cut PVC so additional protection is not required for use on the range, in your field bag, or anywhere else. Measuring 5” wide and 4” tall, the card will easily fit in your uniform pocket, back pocket or range bag.

The S.M.A.R.T. Card is manufactured from die cut PVC and is 100% Made in the USA.

Height:   4 in (10.16 cm)

Width:   5 in (12.7 cm)

Depth:   0.06 in (0.15 cm)

Weight:   0.5 oz (14.17 g)

I personally love to take someone who has never shot before and teach them firearms safety, get them out shooting, learning how to make scope adjustments, etc. The last thing I want to do with that new shooter is overwhelm them with a figuring out click values at different distances.

Using a tool like this in conjunction with working through the actual math reinforces that you’re doing the correct mental math. Practice Makes Perfect! While not everyone will feel the need for this product I definitely see it coming in very handy when helping new shooters learn how to make adjustments, working with a new optic, etc. Being that its made of a durable PVC material its an easy item to just throw in your range bag and take it with you anytime you shoot.

The new ZeroBravo S.M.A.R.T. Card is priced at just $14.95 available right now at www.ZeroBravo.com.

Multitasker Tools is officially announcing that they are offering the Multitasker Tools TWIST mulititool in #TeamTaskerTan (a blend of Coyote Tan with a hint of OD). The Multitasker Tools TWIST is hands down one of the most useful and easily carried tools I own. When not in use the TWIST is basically the size of a sharpie and clips to a pocket, pouch, MOLLE webbing, etc. but when you need its help it quickly changes into the superhero of multitools able to tackle pretty much anything you ask of it. Even though the TWIST is “weaponcentric” (designed for weapon maintenance) you’ll find yourself grabbing the TWIST for tons of non-weapon jobs as well.

I personally run exclusively CMC and Geissele/ALG triggers in my guns. Not because I have to but because they are awesome and I choose to use them. However, this new “Saber” from James Madison Tactical is intriguing purely because of the price point. The Saber is a single stage drop-in trigger with a 3.5-4.0 pound pull weight. Rainier Arms has secured the first run of these triggers at an introductory price of $89.95. I personally have not used one of these triggers but if I wanted to upgrade my stock trigger and couldn’t afford a CMC or Geissele this is something I would consider.

**NEW** BFD (Blast Forwarding Device) for ALL Muzzle Devices

Posted on October 3rd, 2016 by ar15news

This new product from Indian Creek Design is a two piece shield for virtually any muzzle device on the market. It uses a threaded collar that goes on before the muzzle device that the main body of the BFD (Blast Forwarding Device) screws onto.  This allows it to mount without attaching directly to any specific muzzle device and can be threaded on or off as needed. Check out the press release and pictures below. These are on sale now at www.indiancreekdesigninc.com

**Press Release**

Nampa, Idaho, September 26, 2016 – No longer will your shooting partners, entry team members, or your wife and kids shrink back from your invitation to go shoot your muzzle brake equipped rifle. The creative minds at Indian Creek Design, Inc (ICD) have solved one of shooting’s annoying dilemmas, eliminating the side and back blast from an effective muzzle brake, with an ingenious device that will have everyone at ranges and along firing lines across this great nation enjoying their chosen pastime more and getting better training in.

Muzzle brakes work by providing ports for the rapidly moving and expanding gasses that propel a bullet to hit against as they exit the end of a firearm barrel, re-directing those gasses to the sides and often back at the shooter to control recoil and offer quicker follow up shots and to control the muzzle so the impact of your previously fired shots can be seen via your optics to assess accuracy. They are also the bane of Range Officers and other people on the firing line, as well as tactical entry team members, etc, due to the back blast associated with their use.

“Muzzle brakes have been around for generations and they are invaluable, especially in target and tactical situations,” says Gary Adams, a spokesperson for ICD, “but people get sick of the blast associated with using a muzzle brake. This has led to a rise in sales of flash cans and linear compensators which only channel gasses forward but do nothing for muzzle rise and recoil. There are a few companies that make a system that couples a specific flash can with a specific muzzle brake but these are relatively expensive and up until now there has been no option for a consumer or law enforcement agency to use whichever muzzle brake they prefer and also run a blast forwarding device with that brake to defeat the blast and noise.

We at ICD have undertaken the task of engineering and perfecting a simple and elegant blast forwarding device, the ICD BFD, that will fit on many rifles and that works in conjunction with virtually any muzzle brake the shooter wants to use. The BFD, which adds only 2.6 ounces to the rifle, is stunningly simple in design, but so very effective that it will literally change the way shooters look at muzzle brakes and shooting in general. It is absolutely amazing how effective it is.”

icd-bfd-1

An added benefit in the BFD re-directing the muzzle blast is the re-direction of the ear drum shattering noise as well. Independent testing has proven that a muzzle brake causes up to a 10x increase in discharge sound level that hits the shooter and those in the surrounding area. The BFD corrals that damaging sound wave and sends it downrange. The perceived sound near the shooter is reduced dramatically. Despite this ability, the BFD is not an NFA controlled item, it is not a suppressor, and no special permissions are required to own or use it.

icd-bfd-1

The ICD BFD is available for any rifle with 1/2″ threaded muzzle devices (AR variants, etc) and for 5/8″ threaded devices such as on AR-10’s, etc. The BFD was extensively tested on various caliber rifles, up to and including a 7mm Remington Magnum bolt action rifle, with excellent results. Finished in a matte black MilSpec Type III hardcoat, Mr. Adams feels that this will quickly become a must have for the casual or avid shooter who wants muzzle control and doesn’t want to feel or subject others to the punishing back blast, and also for tactical operations and Law Enforcement use where the brake blast can be detrimental to operational success and the safety of the personnel involved. Every Range Officer in the world will want these on every rifle, they are that effective.

Instead of spending a large amount of money for a proprietary device that handcuffs equipment choices, departments, agencies, and civilian shooters can now add a moderately priced (MSRP $79.95) piece of American made kit to their existing platform and get a lot more, or rather a lot less, “BANG for their buck”!

**NEW** Cloud Defensive Light Control System

Posted on October 1st, 2016 by ar15news

Do you have a SureFire ST07 Tape Switch? If you’ve bought any SureFire Scout Lights chances are you have an ST07 somewhere. If you’re like me, almost all of them are in a box of spare parts in my gun room because I upgraded to something like the expensive SR07 rail grabber tape switch or went with the clicky tail cap. The ST07, to me, is pretty useless straight out of the box. Its a good switch but I don’t like zip tying, taping or velcro’ing it to my gun. However, the ST07 may have found new life.

surefire-st07-tape-switch

A company called Cloud Defensive just introduced their new LCS (Light Control System) which is a mount specifically designed to securely attach your ST07 to any 1913 picatinny rail section. Most shooters will prefer to mount it to the top (12 o’clock) section of the rail but I assume you could even use an offset picatinny rail mount as well. The LCS also has the option of the ICC (Integrated Cable Clamp) which helps route the cable of the ST07 tape switch and keeps it from being able to get snagged on anything. 

cloud-defensive-light-control-system-1

cloud-defensive-light-control-system-1

Introducing the Light Control System (LCS) with optional Integrated Cable Clamp (ICC).  Designed for the Surefire ST07 tape switch. A vastly superior mounting platform for your tape switch that allows you to secure excess cable under the mount. No more improvised mounting solutions. No more weak links on your rifle. Two problems solved with one product.

Another reason why the LCS mount might be just what you’re looking for…its just $50. You can also upgrade to the LCS with the Integrated Cable Clamp for another $10 more. Cloud Defensive just put these up on their website so head on over to www.CloudDefensive.com and get one today.

“Deplorable” Patch by Forward Controls Design

Posted on September 20th, 2016 by ar15news

Usually I wouldn’t want to be considered “deplorable” but when someone like Hillary Clinton (Killary) basically says anyone who doesn’t support her is deplorable, you can surely count me in that basket of people. Forward Controls Design has come up with the Deplorable Patch which 2.75″ wide and 1″ tall with a Multicam background and Velcro backing. You can purchase the patch for $6 shipped or get one free with any purchase over $75. Get yours at www.ForwardControlsDesign.com.  **Update: the first batch sold out but you can still order one.**

deplorable-patch

We’ve always tried to stay out of politics, for it is our part to innovate and produce superior US made firearms components, not to take sides in politics and proselytize,  I believe that being in the firearms business makes it impossible to stay neutral.

Apparently, half of us belong in the basket of deplorables, and of these, some are irredeemable.  Thus have we been labelled by the most corrupt and dishonest presidential contender in recent history.

We are not politically correct, and we are not useful idiots.  Fortunately, we’re also not without a self deprecating sense of humor.  If it is our lot to be sneered at and made fun of, I say embrace the basket, and stay deplorable my friends 🙂

The patch is free with orders of $75 or more (while supplies last), and available for sale.  We will make a donation to a worthy cause and post the receipt here

The Velcro backed patch is 2.75″ wide and 1″ tall, with Multicam background, OD border and black text.

**NEW** Phase 5 Tactical Sloped Quick Disconnect End Plate

Posted on September 6th, 2016 by ar15news

Pretty sure I have a QD End Plate on just about every rifle I’ve ever built but they all require you to get your big (sometimes gloved) hands into this tiny area to attach/detach the QD sling swivel. The new Sloped Quick Disconnect End Plate (SQD-EP) addresses that issue and gives you a nice ambi QD sling mount. It also covers up some of the castle nut for a cleaner look. I will definitely pick one of these up for my next build and see how it goes. Looks like a great design. Read more about it and check out the pics below.

 P5T SQD-EPP5T SQD-EP 3

The Phase 5 Sloped Quick Disconnect End Plate (SQD-EP) was designed to replace the standard AR15/M4 carbine end plate. While still meeting the requirements of the original design, the SQD-EP is lighter and QD Swivel compatible.

PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA FROM USA RAW BILLET 7075-T6 ALUMINUM.

– Compatible with mil-spec carbine reciever extensions, commercial-spec reciever extensions, and all Phase 5 Pistol Buffer Tubes on nearly all AR15/M4/.308 AR Variant lower recievers.
– Lightweight and sturdy 7075-T6 billet aluminum construction is about 80% stronger than 6061-T6 aluminum.
– Uses a standard AR15/M4 carbine Lower reciever extension castle nut (not included).
– Accepts all push button QD swivels and QD slings.
– QD mount is at a 30 Degree angle from the lower reciever to allow a 360 Degree rotation for ambidextrious use.
– Lighter than the standard stamped steel reciever extention end plate (0.39 oz vs 0.48 oz.

The SQD-EP is in-stock and shipping now. Normally I would just link to the manufacturer  (Phase5WSI.com) for new product announcements but I also just noticed that these are available at an intro price at www.RainierArms.com now through 9/15/16. 

3 New Products from Arisaka Defense

Posted on August 25th, 2016 by ar15news

Arisaka Defense recently added 3 new products to their lineup so we figured we’d tell you about them all in one post. 

First is the Low Profile Bipod Mount for Harris S-series (S-BR, S-BRM, S-L, S-LM, S-25, and S-25C) Bipods. The Low Profile Bipod Mount replaces the entire stock sling swivel interface with a minimalist Picatinny mount. Rotation limiters allow for approximately 15 degrees of cant to either side for leveling, and the mount is compatible with pod lock levers.

Arisaka Low Profile Harris S Bipod Mount 2

The Low Profile Bipod Mount places the bipod 1/8″ below the Picatinny rail, greatly reducing the overall height. Combined with its weight at just over one ounce and a short 1.4″ length, it significantly reduces bulk compared to the stock mount. Machined from billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized, the Low Profile Bipod Mounts are built for rough use and long term reliability.

Next up is the Low Profile Picatinny Rails for KeyMod and MLOK. These 5 slot rails feature a reduced height to pull Picatinny accessories closer to the handguard. They also utilize three KeyMod or M-Lok fasteners which will spread the increased stress of large Picatinny accessories like bipods or vertical grips over more slots on the rail.

The Low Profile Picatinny Rails are machined out of billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized.

Proudly made in the USA and available now on the Arisaka site:

Last but not least is the new SureFire M620 Adapter for Offset Scout Mounts. The Offset M620 Adapter allows Surefire M620 Scout lights to be used with our Offset Scout Mount, and preserves the adjustability, allowing for side to side placement for additional clearance around front sights or other top rail mounted accessories. The wrap-around design also keeps the light on the same plane as a M300 or M600 Scout light used without the Offset M620 Adapter.
