Magpul MBUS PRO LR Adjustable Rear Sight On Sale

Posted on May 9th, 2015 by ar15news

VF Gunrunners is offering a deal on the Magpul MBUS PRO LR which has a built in elevation adjustment wheel with preset detents at 50 meter increments all the way out to 600 meters. As always, buying a rear sight is always more expensive than buying a front sight…just because. Normal retail on this sight is $129.95 but the sale price right now is $98.95 with FREE SHIPPING. I don’t know about you but I really appreciate companies that offer free shipping on stuff. It takes the guess work out of “Am I really getting a good deal?”. While you’re there you can also pick up a front sight too.

Seekins Precision just announced that their new K20 Angled Grip is available for purchase. The K20 angled grip mounts to KeyMod rails and comes in a variety of different colors. One feature I just noticed that I wasn’t aware of before was the included QD Sling Mount at the back of the grip. Pics and Press Release are below. These are available for purchase at www.SeekinsPrecision.com.

Lewiston, ID – Seekins Precision, announced their new K20 Angled Grip.

Seekins Precision is proud to announce that the K20 Angled Grip is now in full production and available for purchase.

Designed as a lightweight, ergonomic alternative to the standard forward hand grip. The CNC billet constructed K20 weighs in at only 1.6oz and features an integrated sling mount and anodized finish.

The K20’s angled grip surface provides the shooter with better control of the rifle and ease in recoil. Shooters will also find that the K20 allows for a faster response time and a more accurate return of fire.

Seekins Precision will be manufacturing the K20 in both the Keymod and M-Lok configurations as well as offering a selection of anodized colors for ease in rifle customization.

“The response we received for the K20 during initial beta testing was overwhelmingly positive” said Kevin Weyrauch, Seekins Precision Business Development Coordinator. “We are excited to be able to add the K20 to our product catalog.”

If you missed out on the last KAK Industry Contract Overrun Barrel Sale, here’s your chance to get in on another one. As I mentioned last time, KAK Industry produces barrels for many other companies and every once in a while wires get crossed and they produce more than the contract calls for. One of there recent contracts was for these 11″ 5.56 Melonite Barrels with a 1/9 twist of which they had some left over. These extra barrels are NOT Blems but need to go somewhere so the guys at KAK put them out at $100 a piece which is a steal for a Melonite finished barrel that typically sells for $265. Thankfully we have a good relationship with KAK Industry and they give our readers first crack at them. 

KAK Industry 11 inch 5.56 Melonite Barrel SalePhoto of my 10.5″ I snagged last time they had a contract overrun.

These again are 11″ barrels, chambered in 5.56 NATO with a 1:9 Twist, Carbine Length Gas, .750 Gas Block Seat and normal 1/2×28 threads. They also do not have any logo on them, just the Caliber and Twist. Perhaps the best part is that they are Melonite barrels which means they have had a molten salt bath. This changes the surface of the metal on the inside and out of the barrel, coating even the bore. Melonite is the same as QPQ, Nitride, etc and is very slick, much more durable than chrome lining and its corrosion resistance is off the charts. Probably my personal favorite Barrel and BCG finish. Check out the details below and then head on over to www.KAKIndustry.com to get one, or five, of these awesome barrels before they’re gone.

**Note: As always, AR15NEWS does not charge or accept payment or commission for writing articles of any kind. If you find value in what we write about and can get in on a good deal, that makes it worth while to us.

Underground Tactical Arms is introducing their new Enhanced Takedown Pin Set. These new Takedown Pins from Underground Tactical feature a series of grooves machined into the heads of the pins that let you use the rim of a 5.56 casing to pull them out if they are tight. If you have owned more then one AR you have probably dealt with the common issue of extremely tight takedown pins between some upper and lower receivers. Some times you can push them partially out with the tip of a bullet but some are really stubborn and need a little extra help. Some companies resort to extending the length of the pins and making a head that you can pull on but they can get in the way of using safety selectors, etc. 

Underground Tactical Takedown PinsProduction units will be Black. Shown here before coating.

Underground Tactical Arms will be producing these for both AR15 and AR10 at $14.99 and $19.99 respectively. As far as we know the launch date will be in about two weeks at which time they will be available for sale at www.UndergroundTactical.com. We’ll be sure to post this again as soon as they are available for sale.

AIM v2 BLACK NITRIDE .223/5.56/300BLK CARPENTER 158 Bolt

Posted on May 4th, 2015 by ar15news

AIM Surplus just introduced their new Black Nitride AR15 Bolt made from Carpenter 158 steel. The bolts are also Shot Peened and MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) and feature Billet Machined Extractors with Black Insert and O-Ring upgrade. Black Nitride is quickly becoming the go-to finish for AR parts. The fact that it is a Surface Treatment (Molten Salt Bath) and not a coating gives it better durability and boasts some of the best lubricity and corrosion protection of any finish out there. If you’re building a BCG or need a great backup/replacement Bolt, this is a great option for just $49.95 with FREE SHIPPING at www.AIMSurplus.com.

NEW!! TacStrike Target Carrier Solution – The Cerberus

Posted on May 1st, 2015 by ar15news

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen guys stapling targets to this flimsy, make shift target carrier that always seems to fall apart after being shot or just blown around by the wind. Then there are the guys who need to bring all of their power tools and build a target carrier that is so over built that it could be later outfitted as some sort of medieval trebuchet. Either way, both of those guys spent an excessive amount of time building or repairing their Target Carrier when they should have been shooting. 

Nobody knows this scenario better than Rob of TacStrike. Rob has been a very well known instructor for years now and also builds some of the best steel targets and target carriers on the market. Today Rob is introducing a new product that is so simple yet so smart. You’ll never need to build a target carrier again.

Rob’s new target carrier design utilizes 3 pieces of square steel tubing that is welded together to create each leg of the target base. You simply rip a 2×4 in half, cut the two “feet” to the length you want them, cut the center post to the length you need to accommodate the target you will be shooting and then insert the uprights and you’re ready to shoot. All of the pieces are held in place using thumb screws so you don’t need any tools to assemble or disassemble the carrier.

TacStrike Target Carrier 1

TacStrike Target Carrier 3

This new target carrier is also adaptable in that it can change to accommodate any size target you want to attach to the uprights by simply adjusting the width of the center post. Another thing to note is that if its windy out that day, you can cut the “feet” of the carrier a bit longer to make it harder to blow over.

TacStrike Target Carrier 3

One of the best parts about a super simple design is that it usually comes with a super simple price tag. TacStrike will be selling these as a pair for $21.95 plus $6 shipping anywhere in the lower 48. Now that is an affordable modular target carrier. Check them out now at www.TacStrike.com.

ATF 41P: What It Is and Why You Want to Know About It

Posted on April 25th, 2015 by ar15news

FACT: Depending on what state you live in, you can possess silencers/suppressors, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, destructive devices, and the “Any Other Weapon” firearms.

SIG MPX SBR With suppressor

FACT: The White House and the ATF has been trying since late 2013 to put complete control over whether or not you can exercise your right to own these in the hands of the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of your area.

NFA-ATF41P

Commonly known as ATF 41P, under the unprecedented number of executive actions President Obama announced, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives seeks to make a change to the framework that will require every person, regardless of whether you are applying as an individual or under any type of entity such as a corporation, LLC, limited partnership, or trust to submit 2 sets of photographs taken within 1 year, 2 sets of FBI approved fingerprints, a check for $200 (or $5 if transferring an AOW), plus the signature of the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in your area before the tax stamp which permits the ability to purchase or build these highly regulated firearms will be issued.

Should the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) refuse to sign, and even if you can pass the extensive background check for which you are submitting to the ATF, you will not be allowed to complete the application. This places an enormous amount of power in the hands of a person whose personal opinions, prejudices, and political motivations will be the ultimate deciding factor in whether or not you will be able to exercise your 2nd Amendment right to own any of these firearms. Until now, people who faced an uncooperative CLEO turned to the additional expense of creating trusts, corporations, or LLCs -which did not require the signature – in order to proceed with the application. If this proposition passes, this alternative will no longer be an option unless you live in only a handful of states that have laws on the books that compel the CLEO to sign.

This potential change has been delayed 3 times already, and the latest update has a decision that could be announced next month. This gives you enough time to get the ball rolling with a trust and submit your applications before the regulation is passed.

My suggestion is to do the exact same thing I did and get an NFA Trust now and get working on registering your new SBR, Suppressor, etc. There are many avenues of doing this wether it be online or in person with an attorney. I have personally and know many more people who have used Coyote Rifleworks for their NFA Trust and used it to 100% success. What makes it work so well is that with Coyote Rifleworks you actually fill out the important information on their website and then they send you a completed NFA Trust instead of a blank NFA Trust or a copy of an NFA Trust for you to fill out like many other companies do. It costs just $95 too which is pretty awesome. Check them out at www.CoyoteRifleworks.com.

No matter what, if you don’t take the opportunity to build an SBR, Suppressor, etc. and continue to put it off, you might decide to do it when its finally too late. There are many people in this country that want to take away your right to do so and they’ll do it by any means necessary.  

*NOTE: This is not a sponsored post or a post that I was paid to make. This is a post for you and I who are citizens of the United States of America that need to know what’s going on and what rights our government is trying to take away from us.  –  Ben

ODIN Works B1 Low Profile KeyMod Handstop

Posted on April 23rd, 2015 by ar15news

Shortly after SHOT Show 2015 I received a small little box in the mail from ODIN Workswith a really cool little KeyMod handstop inside of it. I was told to wait until they introduced it to post pics of it so I have been waiting. Not sure if there was ever a specific release date on it but I noticed that they were shown in-stock on their website and thought I would share a few pics of mine. 

The B1 Handstop is machined from aluminum but is still lightweight because it is pretty tiny. At first I thought it was going to be too small but once you install it and place your hand on it, it works great. You basically place your Pinky and Ring Finger on the angled portion with  your middle finger against the front of the handstop. Kind of reminds me of a miniature version of the AFG.

ODIN Works B1 KeyMod Handstop 1

I have had mine installed on a Geissele SMR MK4 ever since I received it and really like it. One of the features I like most about it is that it is very small. Being that its made of aluminum, its super solid as well. 

ODIN Works B1 KeyMod Handstop 1ODIN Works B1 KeyMod Handstop 1

The ODIN Works B1 KeyMod Handstop can be purchased for $49 at www.ODINWorks.com. If you’re looking to save a few bucks on it, I noticed you can also get them at www.RainierArms.com.

I held off on posting about PSA’s new EPT for a few reasons. One, the first run sold out extremely fast so I was waiting for it to come back in-stock. Two, the name is a bit misleading as it does not double as an Emergency Pregnancy Test. “Ba Dum Tsh” Okay, so really it was just for the first reason but now that the PSA EPT is back in-stock I figured it was a good time to tell you about it. 

PSA’s EPT starts out as a standard single-stage government-style fire control group. They then finely polish the contact surfaces and then coat the hammer and trigger in a super slick nickel finish. They say the result is “a trigger that is substantially smoother than mil-spec”. It is also a very affordable upgrade at just $39.99.

match_grade_trigger_kit8000

I think this would be an interesting product to test up against the ALG Defense QMS and especially the ACT Trigger. ALG Defense Triggers tend to cost a little bit more ($45 for QMS and $65 for ACT) but you can typically find a deal with free shipping etc. While I am always looking for a great deal, I think I would still go with the ALG Defense ACT or QMS triggers knowing that they are tuned by Geissele and I have had great experience with them so far. However, if I were looking for the absolute best price on an upgraded trigger group, I would not hesitate to give the new PSA EPT a try. Check them out at www.PalmettoStateArmory.com.
