NEW!! DS Arms BUFFERLOCK Buffer and Carrier Insert

Posted on February 12th, 2015 by ar15news

DS Arms is proud to release the BUFFERLOC, an improved buffer and carrier insert for the AR15 type rifle that fits all in spec AR15/M16/M4 type rifles. 

This invention improves the reliability, durability and takedown of any AR15 type firearm. The BUFFERLOC also addressed an issue common to piston ARs’ carrier tilt. By keeping the bolt carrier in line with the buffer we have essentially eliminated this issue. The spring loaded ball bearing insert fits OEM in spec bolt carriers; this insert has a corresponding buffer machined with a dimple that aligns the carrier. This allows for the lower and upper to be tighter. The bolt and carrier also stays aligned much better. Plus the BUFFERLOC stops the upper from flopping open in disassembly. The added constant forward pressure also aids in the reliability of your rifle especially in fouled conditions.

The Buffer Lock’s Enhancements 
1.Allows for the rifle to be opened without flopping open and hitting your body or marring the finish of your rifle. 
2.Keeps the bolt group aligned for better reliability and even wear on the bolt head, extractor and barrel extension for less part fatigue and wear. 
3.Keeps constant extra pressure on the bolt group ensuring better bolt lock for enhanced reliability especially under fouled and dirty rifle conditions. 
4.Reduces carrier tilt seen in many piston designs allowing for less wear on the buffer tube and less friction that can cause reliability issues. 
5.Lowers the chance of bolt bounce because of the constant forward pressure on the bolt group, providing enhanced reliability. 
6.Enhanced bolt group alignment provides for a better ejection pattern. 
7.Improves the fit of the upper and lower receivers. 
8.Drop in all AR15/M4 with no permanent modifications to you rifle. 

This new product innovation adds durability and reliability to the heart of your AR15 type rifle, at a low cost.

NEW!! RailScales G-10, Aluminum and Titanium Handstops

Posted on January 30th, 2015 by ar15news

Not sure how I’ve totally missed this but the guys at RailScales are about to release their new S³ (Serrated Scales Stop) Handstop. Looks like the G10 version will be available for purchase starting this coming Friday (2/6/15) with the Aluminum and Titanium versions to follow. At first they will only be available in KeyMod with M-LOK versions to come soon. Apparently they will also fit the War Sport LVOA rail by removing the KeyMod nut and screwing it directly to the rail. Pics, Pricing and details for the RailScales S³ Handstops are listed below. These will be available for purchase on www.GetRailScales.com.

Finally!!! Our S³ handstops are ready for purchase. The G10 versions will be available first, on the website late next week. Aluminum and Ti will be available the following week. Pricing and weights! The S³ retail pricing will be $69 for G10 or Aluminum, take your pick. The Serialized Titanium price will be announced in the coming days, it will include some extra goodies, watch for the detailed post. 

Weights G10 – 0.6oz
Aluminum (6061) – 0.8oz
Titanium (6AL4V) – 1.3oz

After a long deliberation we decided to offer the Aluminum in the raw (sandblasted), leaving you to decide how to finish it. We have spent a lot time talking with friends, customers, etc as to what color, hard coat, paint, cerakote etc to offer, and about every response was something different. The Sand colored one was cerakoted and has held up nicely. In the future we might do a couple of anodized colors, Black and FDE. But we want to wait to get feedback from those that purchase to ultimately decide. We will be posting more details on each of the materials in the coming days as well as a comparison chart, showing how they stack up against each other.

NEW!! Seekins Precision 60/90 Ambi Safety Selector

Posted on January 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Seekins Precision is release their new 60/90 Ambi Safety Selector for purchase. The new selector is a modular design that can be disassembled allowing the user to swap the Short and Long lever to whichever side works best for them. The center core of the selector is also very cool in that when inserted into the receiver in one direction it functions as a normal 90 degree selector but flip it over and insert the other end first and it is now a 60 degree short throw selector. The levers will feature the Seekins Precision diamond texture and come in Black, FDE, OD Green, Zombie Green, Red, Blue or Clear Coat Aluminum. Perhaps the most awesome part is that they will have an MSRP of just $39.99. As I mentioned, these are not currently on the Seekins website yet but should be very soon.

NEW!! Rainier Arms REST (Rainier Enhanced Short Throw) Safety

Posted on January 13th, 2015 by ar15news

I saw a sneak peek at these a while back and have been anxiously waiting for them to come out. Rainier Arms has partnered up with Battle Arms Development to come out with their new REST or Rainier Enhanced Short Throw ambi safety selector. The REST features the standard Battle Arms Development BAD-ASS Short Throw ambi safety core with a totally sick set of enhanced levers with the RA “Mountain” logo and a more triangular shape. I’ve already been a massive fan of both the BAD-ASS family of ambi safeties and Rainier Arms in general so these will be the perfect finishing touch to my two all Rainier Arms builds.

NEW!! ALG Defense Sidewinder Muzzle Brake

Posted on January 10th, 2015 by ar15news

ALG Defense’s new Sidewinder muzzle brake is machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel and fits ½”-28 threaded 5.56mm barrels. The vents are angled upward at 3 and 9 o’clock deflecting gas to the sides, away from the ground, reducing dust and debris when firing from the prone position. The vents are larger on top than on the bottom which minimize the muzzle rise of the ALG Sidewinder. The unique design reduces muzzle rise and recoil, allowing the shooter to quickly get back on target for rapid follow up shots. The ALG Sidewinder includes a peel washer for proper timing and concentricity during installation. Available in both Bright Polish or Black Nitride finish.

NEW!! Magpul M-LOK Rail Covers

Posted on January 7th, 2015 by ar15news

I’ve been hoping someone would come out with a decent set of Rail Covers for my Geissele SMR MK8 M-LOK rail just to add a bit of grippier surface to it and it looks like Magpul is the first to the make it happen. The new M-LOK Type 2 Rail Covers are a two piece design that snap together similar to the design of the popular XTM 1913 rail covers. They also feature the TSP texture that is found on some of Magpul’s newer grips such as the MOE K2 which I really like. Each package comes with 6 sections for just $12.95. I will definitely be picking up a couple packs of these as they seem to be just what the Dr. ordered.

Magpul M-LOK Rail Covers 1Magpul M-LOK Rail Covers 1

M-LOK Type 2 Rail Covers are low-profile, two-piece covers that install directly onto most M-LOK aluminum hand guards. These M-LOK Covers are non-orientation specific which allow the user to mount them in any direction desired without affecting function, feature beveled contours to minimize potential snagging, utilizes our TSP texture for additional grip, and protrudes only slightly more than 1/8″ from the mounting surface to maintain a low-profile. The center locking tab is pre-scored to allow the user to snap off sections and mix and match colors for a customized look.Includes six panels, each covering one M-LOK slot. Made in U.S.A.

Arisaka Releases 300 Series Scout Compatible Light Bodies

Posted on December 30th, 2014 by ar15news

The 300 Series Light Body is designed as a streamlined replacement for Surefire Scout Light M300 bodies. It is manufactured without the mounting interface for the stock Picatinny clamp. This greatly increases the clearance for front sights when used in combination with the KeyMod and M-Lok Arisaka Inline Scout Mounts on handguards with 45 degree mounting surfaces adjacent to the top Picatinny rail, such as the BCM KMR, KAC URX4, and Geissele SMR MK8.

Arisaka Scout Light Body 1

The 300 Series Light Body is compatible with all E1 series and Scout Light M300 series tailcaps and heads. It will also fit in any aftermarket Scout mount, as it retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.

Arisaka Scout Light Body 2

It is also possible to build a complete light from scratch by sourcing a Surefire or aftermarket light head, and a tailcap or tape-switch.

The 300 Series Light Body is manufactured out of 6061 aluminum, type III hardcoat anodized, and made entirely in the USA.
