New!! Push Button Ambi Speed Safety from Elftmann Tactical

Posted on November 10th, 2015 by ar15news

Talk about thinking outside the box. Elftmann Tactical just introduced a pretty neat new take on the AR-15 ambi safety that will be surprisingly familiar to many rifle shooters. Most of us grew up shooting BB guns, rifles and shotguns with a traditional push button safety. That is exactly what Elftmann Tactical just created for the AR.

The Push Button Ambi Speed Safety is as simple as it gets. On SAFE the cylinder is black and on FIRE the cylinder has a red ring. To Switch between SAFE and FIRE you just press in on the cylinder. You press on the left side to FIRE and press on the right side to return to SAFE. Its fast and easy and should be easier to use than a standard AR-15 safety under stressful situations or competition.

Quickly take your AR from safety to fire and back to safe with the simple push of a button. This is the fastest safety selector to engage and disengage on the market, with no rotation necessary, no shifting of the shooters hand needed.

–  Push Safety Design
–  Ambidextrous Operation
–  Extremely fast on-off
–  Precision machined from hardened Stainless Steel
–  Compatible with all Mil-spec receivers
–  Includes Detent
–  Absolute lifetime Guarantee

A few people have expressed concern regarding the possibility of accidentally bumping the safety. According to Elftmann Tactical “It takes enough pressure that is highly unlikely. I have tried purposely and not saying impossible but no more likely than doing the same thing with a 45 degree safety”

I definitely plan to grab one of these to try out. Innovation is not an easy thing to keep alive so it is always great to see companies like Elftmann continuing to come out with new and better products. Our friends at both Rainer Arms and AV Guns are carrying the new Elftmann Tactical Push Button Ambi Speed Safety which has a retail price of just $39.95, so I have put links to them below.

Battle Arms Development originally made its name in the AR world by making hands down the best ambi safety available. Over the past few years they have literally exploded with new products including billet receivers, barrels, gas blocks, stocks, buffer tubes and even complete rifles. They have plans to go piece by piece through the AR and not just make their own version but to improve each part. One of their newest products is the BAD-EMMR or Enhanced Modular Magazine Release.

An extended mag release is not really a new idea but what is new is the design of the BAD-EMMR. Most other extended mag releases just use two screws to hold the extended paddle in in place. If those screws back out the paddle can become loose, wobbly and even fall off. The BAD-EMMR uses a dovetail mounting system, similar to the BAD-CASS ambi safety, and then is secured using a single set screw. The dovetail mount is held to very tight tolerances and takes all of the stress during use instead of putting it on the screws on other designs.

Precision CNC Machined for billet 7075-T6 Aluminum in an anodized BLACK finish, the BAD-EMMR features an unique, patent pending three sided dovetail finger pad attachment mechanism that allows for maximum strength, an almost uninterrupted finger pad face for maximum design aesthetics, light weight and low profile design. The interchangeable finger pads offers excellent ergonomic feel and ease of operation without shifting grip position. If you are looking for maximum flexibility, robust design and unparalleled design aesthetics, the BAD-EMMR is the ultimate extended magazine release for you.

The BAD-EMMR is available in Black, Red or Raw interchangeable extended finger pads and will have other design and color options in the future as well. The BAD-EMMR is available for purchase right now and is definitely the best execution of an extended mag release that I have seen to date and at just $21.95, they are pretty affordable too.

NEW!! Combat Shooters Tactical Ambidextrous Charging Handle

Posted on October 30th, 2015 by ar15news

Combat Shooters has introduced their new T.A.C.H. which stands for Tactical Ambidextrous Charging Handle. The T.A.C.H. features a large latch on both sides of the charging handle for ease of use for both right and left hand users. These are currently on pre-order while they are at anodizing and laser and will start shipping in less than 2 weeks. Check out the pics and details below. Pre-order at

The T.A.C.H. provides wider, more accessible levers that are easy to reach, even while wearing combat gloves or with a large optic mounted on the weapon. The levers provide a great feel for the operator, improving the weapons performance. The ambidextrous feature is independent, allowing one or both levers to be pulled at the same time, virtually eliminating the risk of a jam. A standard charging handle puts stress on a weak roll pin that is used to keep its mechanism in place. In the field, this weakness becomes a liability. If this roll pin is damaged, the weapon can become non-functioning. Through our mechanism’s three independent components, stress is virtually eliminated and very little is transferred to the heavy duty, stainless steel pins.

**NEW** ETS Group Glock 9mm Mags Available for Pre-Order

Posted on October 26th, 2015 by ar15news

I’m super stoked to see that ETS Group has put their huge line of Glock mags up for pre-order.

Aside from that, I also recently built a 9mm Quarter Circle 10 AR that takes Glock mags which is the main reason I want some of these mags. I’ll be putting in an order for a few 22 and 31 round mags as soon as I get done writing up this post. I’ve put some pics and links to all of the ETS Group Glock Mags below.

Thordsen Customs Picatinny Buffer Tube Adapter

Posted on October 20th, 2015 by ar15news

Thordsen Customs just introduced their new Picatinny Buffer Tube Adapter. This adapter will allow you to mount an AR Buffer Tube (pistol or carbine) to any gun with a vertical rear picatinny rail section. Guns such as the very popular Sig MPX typically come as a Pistol from the factory. The end user can now attach a buffer tube to use items such as the Thordsen Customs AR Pistol Cheek Rest Kit, Sig SB15 arm brace, Shockwave Stabilizer or if they have SBR’d the pistol they can easily add a collapsible AR-15 stock once the stamp comes back. If you’re looking for something like this, head on over to and check them out.

Our new Picatinny Buffer Tube Adapter is a great addition to your Sig MPX, Sig P556XI, Rock River PDS, or any other pistol that utilizes a rear vertical picatinny rail. It gives a shooter the ability to add a cheekrest for greater stability or a stock for SBR conversions (federal tax stamp required).

The mounting method follows true STANAG (NATO Standard Agreement) protocol using the two back angles and the top of the rail as the contact points. The result is perfect alignment with the centerline of the firearm. A feature that is not attainable with typical side clamping adapters. Another bonus is that there are no visible fasteners or holes on the top and sides of the adapter for a clean sleek look.


  • Compatible with multiple platforms
  • Fits any picatinny rail
  • True STANAG mount
  • Includes set screw for carbine buffer tubes
  • Engraved TC logo
  • 304 stainless steel hardware


  • 6061 T6 Aluminum
  • Type III Hard Anodize finish
  • Weight: 2.5 oz.
  • Width 1.37 inches, Height 1.4 inches

Sneak Peek!! Quentin Defense Billet Charging Handle

Posted on October 16th, 2015 by ar15news

Quentin Defense is well known for their affordable billet receiver sets that they sell and make OEM for other companies. Just yesterday they shared a photo of their new billet charging handle that will be coming soon. The new Quentin Defense Billet Charging Handle is going to be called the SuperCharger. I’m guessing the material will probably be 7075-T6 aluminum as most billet charging handles are. Looks like MSRP will be just $39.50 which is a great price point for a nice charging handle. Will be sure to keep you guys updated as more details and release dates are announced.

LUTH-AR Introduces Two New AR-15/AR-10 Carbine Stocks

Posted on October 8th, 2015 by ar15news

After using the LUTH-AR MBA-1 on one of my favorite precision AR-15s and absolutely loving it, I was really excited to hear they were introducing two new models of the MBA (Modular Buttstock Assembly). The original MBA-1 and MBA-2 stocks mounted to an A1/A2 buffer tube. The new MBA-3 and MBA-4 are Carbine stocks meaning that they will mount directly to your standard AR-15 buffer tube for collapsible stocks. 

The MBA-3 Carbine Stock is fully decked out with an adjustable height cheek rest, 3-axis adjustable buttplate, 1913 picatinny rail section on the bottom of the stock and more. 


The MBA-4 Carbine Stock is more of a stripped down version of the MBA-3 letting you add the accessories you want. It does use the same frame as the MBA-3 including the 1913 rail section on the bottom. 


– Fits .223 & .308 AR platform

– Easy to replace & quick to install
– Strong fiberglass-filled nylon
– Features a picatinny rail 
– Adjusts to 15.75″ length-of-pull
– New 3-axis adjustable buttplate
– Revolutionary anti-rattle set screw
– Available in black, FDE & pink.
– MBA-3 weighs 18 oz.
– MBA-4 weighs 11 oz.

Both of these stocks look really great. Whether you are looking for a more basic setup or the fully loaded, these are sure to fill the need. All LUTH-AR MBA stocks are available for purchase now at
