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.

Shellback Tactical USA Made Plate Carrier Blowout Deal – $49.99

Posted on December 24th, 2014 by ar15news

A buddy of mine told me about a smoking deal that Shellback Tactical has right now. They recently had a manufacturing overrun on a contract for an American Made Plate Carrier. Typically anything “American Made” will cost you double or more the price of stuff made over seas but because of it being an overrun they are blowing these out at just $49.99 each. That’s $150 off of retail. Don’t wait too long as these will be gone in no time. These are available here: www.ShellbackTactical.com

Once you’ve snagged your Plate Carrier, head on over to Shellback Tactical’s sister site which is www.Katylist.com and pick up a few of the new OPFOR 5.56 Magazine Carriers from Limitless Gear. These are a pretty cool new take on the mag pouch and would go great on any MOLLE equipped plate carrier.

NEW!! Lehigh Defense NiB and Phosphate Bolts

Posted on December 19th, 2014 by ar15news

You may have heard already that Lehigh Defense, makers of some amazing ammunition, are now offering very high quality AR Bolts in 223/5.56, 5.45×39, 7.62×39, 6.8SPC, and 458 SOCOM. I recently got my hands on a Phosphate 223/5.56 and Nickel Boron 7.62×39 bolt and just from my initial inspection, they are very nice.

The bolts are done on one machine/station. This alleviates the stacking of tolerances from multiple fixtures. They keep their tolerances down to .0003” and have a propriety heat treat process which ensures consistent case hardness across the hole bolt as well as insuring consistent core hardness. The Bolt material is AISI 9310 VAR (vacuum arc remelt), which is the highest standard material used.

This weekend my plan is to get out to the range to test out both of these bolts. The Phosphate 223/5.56 will be used in my new SBR and the Nickel Boron 7.62×39 will be installed in my KAK Industry 7.62×39 AR Pistol. 

Lehigh Defense Bolts 2

If you’re looking for a new high quality bolt for your AR or just want to have an extra one laying around, you’ll be hard pressed to find nicer ones that these from Lehigh Defense. Check out their full list of available Bolts at www.LehighDefense.com.
