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.

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.

Mesa, AZ, August 23, 2016 – XTECH Tactical, manufacturer of the Advanced Tactical Grip is today introducing two new products for the HK VP9 pistol. First up is the new 5rd Magazine Extender for VP9 magazines. The XTECH Tactical mag extender adds an additional 5 round capacity to the VP9 magazine for a 20 round total. The mag extender is super simple to install with absolutely no tools needed.

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales and Marketing for XTECH Tactical explains how they have eliminated reliability concerns that plague many other mag extenders.

“The biggest thing for function is that we have a 100% consistent ID within the extender portion AND the  ID within the extender is less than the ID of the magazine.  The benefit here is that it is impossible for the extender to cause a Fail to Feed which is a known issue in extenders.”

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

The XTECH Tactical VP9 5rd Mag Extender is now shipping with an MSRP of $29.95 with FREE SHIPPING through the end of August.  http://www.xtechtactical.com/mtx-vp9p30-5-magazine-extender-with-spring/  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Additionally, XTECH Tactical will be offering complete XTECH Tactical VP9 magazines with and without the Mag Extender. The XTECH Tactical VP9 magazine will feature a 310 Stainless Steel body vs H&K’s Spring Steel body. It will also feature an extra round indicator hole to show the 20th round as shown in the photo below.

XTECH VP9 Mag 20 round 2

The XTECH Tactical 20 and 15 Round VP9 magazines will start shipping early this fall. The 20 Round magazine MSRP is $59.95 and the 15 Round magazine is $34.95.  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Cross Machine Tool has recently started to build on their brand offerings with some new products. The CRC (Combat Recoil Compensator) muzzle device is one of those new products. The CRC features dual side ports and forward angled top ports to reduce muzzle rise. The tip of the muzzle device also is machine to mimic the machining on the front of the UPH15 lower receiver mag well. Muzzle brakes are just the beginning as new rails will soon be rolling out as well. The CRC 556 muzzle device is currently in-stock and available at www.RainierArms.com.

Two forward angle brake ports on the  CRC 556  provide greatly reduced muzzle rise & mitigate felt recoil while the front forks distort and reduce flash signature. The external machined flutes on the front flash forks not only reduce the overall weight of the device but also blend with the aesthetic appearance of our Trademark magwell grooves on CMT UHP15 series Lower receivers. Function of the CRC 556 muzzle device is equaled by the exceptional visible manufacturing quality & apprearence you expect from Cross Machine Tool products. MADE IN USA

Limited Edition Multitasker Tools TWIST tool in Multicam

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

Multitasker Tools makes some of the most useful multitools specifically designed for owners of AR-15’s and other popular firearms. One of my personal favorites is the TWIST which is like a pen that Q would have made for James Bond and is packed with useful tools to help keep your firearms running and on target. If you remove the cap on one end it reveals a bunch of maintenance tools such as a carbon scraper, dental pick, etc that screw onto the end of the cap that was just removed. When you remove the other cap you’ll find a Front Sight Adjustment Tool which doubles also as a bit driver. Other features such as an Aimpoint Micro Turret Adjuster are also included.

As they have done in the past, Multitasker Tools has partnered up with Brownells to offer a limited edition version of the TWIST hydrodipped in Multicam. The Limited Edition Multitasker Tools TWIST will sell out fast but your hands on the them first at www.Brownells.com.

The Fortis Muzzle Brake – for your 9MM

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by ar15news

While it seems like EVERYONE is building a 9mm AR right now, its taken AR component manufactures a little bit longer to jump on board as well. Thankfully Fortis Manufacturing has jumped in with a 9mm version of their extremely popular muzzle brake. What makes this such an awesome new product is not just that it looks pretty amazing but it also interfaces with the Fortis QD CONTROL blast shield (sold separately). This is sure to be a great performing muzzle device for your 9mm AR and is available in both 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI which are the two most common thread patterns for 9mm AR barrels. Check out the information below, then head on over to www.FortisMfg.com and pick one up for yourself.

Fortis Mfg 9mm Muzzle Brake and CONTROL

The performance of the Fortis 556 Muzzle Brake is unmatched and the rise is non-existent, now replicated for your 9MM AR needs (also compatible with the Control Shield).

While the trend of 9MM AR’s continue to rise, we wanted to give those enthusiasts a product that carried the Fortis theme of design and functionality. So we took the 556 Muzzle Brake and utilized its aesthetics while getting the same performance for the 9MM that we do in our 556.

Available only in Nitride, in 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI, now available for purchase on FortisMFG.com.

NEW – Tactical Link PDW Grip

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by ar15news

Over the past few years there has definitely been a huge shift towards AR-15 grips with a more vertical angle for a number of reasons including less wrist fatigue, better shooting posture, etc. Tactical Link, a company well known for very nice slings, sling mounts and other accessories, has just announced their newest product which they are calling the Tactical Link PDW Grip for AR style rifles. The TL PDW Grip looks pretty awesome and features its own distinct texture pattern. Check out the details and pics below. 

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade for AR style rifles with a more vertical angle, optimized for short LOP (length of pull) personal defense weapons (PDW), bringing the primary hand in closer to the shooter’s body, encouraging a more natural “elbows in” shooting posture which substantially reduces wrist fatigue and is concurrent with modern shooting doctrine.

Made to the finest standards from an extremely durable fiber-reinforced polymer, the PDW Grip is the result of extensive professional shooter feedback and engineering excellence that has produced one of the finest shooting upgrades in the market today. The PDW Grip sports a patent pending design with “zones” of moderately aggressive surface texture to provide unmatched gripping properties for positive weapon control in all environments.

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is compatible with most lower receiver mounting platforms (forged or billet) and provides improved biomechanics to better align the trigger finger for a more comfortable and direct rearward trigger pull. Due to its hollow core design (no internal storage), the PDW Grip weighs only 2.1 oz and since the PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade it is sold without a grip screw.

Shooter Refined Ergonomics: at 14 degrees, the PDW Grip is 235% (19 degrees) more vertical than the standard A2 grip and is the most comfortable and relaxing grip on the marketplace. Places the hand’s flexor muscles on more of the same plane creating a more natural hand position for a more natural hand position with little to no fatigue even during prolonged use.

Optimized Biomechanics: small beavertail backstrap provides enhanced ergonomics and allows the operator’s hand to ride high on the grip for improved recoil management and fire control.

Tactile Gripping Texture: much more aggressive texture than most other grips on the marketplace. “Zones” of more aggressive anti-slip texturing on the palm panels for excellent gripping properties and for positive weapon control in all environments.

Features:
–  All edges rounded for operator comfort
–  Reinforced beaver tail for extra rigidity
–  Aggressive PSP (Pentagonal Surface Projections) Texture on both palm panels for superior weapon control
–  Grooves on the front and rear backstraps for optimal anti-slip surface and excellent gripping properties
–  Accommodates the “seam” commonly found on the beaver tail of forged lower receivers
–  Unique trigger guard design provides a very comfortable, and absolutely the best fit at the trigger guard area of any grip on the market
–  Grip “pulls” the operator’s hand forward into the grip for a more positive grip and better operational control of the weapon
–  Robust design easily exceeds industry standards for quality, strength and durability
–  100% made in USA

The Tactical Link PDW Grip is available now directly from www.TacticalLink.com and will start shipping this week! I’ll definitely be snagging one of these soon to try out on an SBR or AR Pistol.

Glock Ambi Mag Release Designed for Right Handed Shooters

Posted on July 18th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve always shot my Glocks a lot but ever since I built my Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR I’ve been shooting them even more. Recently I had the opportunity to add the Rainier Arms MARS (Magazine Advanced Release System) ambi mag release in my G17. If you’re thinking….”I shoot right handed so I don’t need an ambi mag release” keep reading.

Rainier Arms MARS ambi mag release glock 1

Rainier Arms MARS ambi mag release glock

Typically ambi controls are designed to benefit left hand shooters but this ambi mag release was actually designed to help right hand shooters. On a Glock, many right handed shooters have to break their grip to reach their thumb far enough to activate the standard mag release consistently. Left handed Glock shooters typically use their Index or Middle finger to use the mag release which is actually better as it does not require that you change your grip on the gun.

The MARS fixes this by adding an ambi mag release on the right side so right handed shooters can now use their Index or Middle finger to release the magazine. They have also extended the mag release button on the left side making it even easier for left handed shooters to access with their Index or Middle finger.

Whether you shoot predominantly Left OR Right hand doesn’t matter with the Rainier Arms MARS. Its a great upgrade for any Glock pistol shooter and has functioned flawlessly in my G17. Rainier Arms has just made these available for sale on their website and are offering them at an introductory price. Regular price is $66.45 but the Intro Price is just $59.95. If you happen to be a Rainier Arms APEX member, your price is just $49.95. Head on over to www.RainierArms.com to snag one at the intro pricing.
