KAK Industry – LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer

Posted on January 26th, 2016 by ar15news

I have a few LR-308 rifles, two of which I have personally built myself. Both of those rifles I wanted to run a standard AR-15 stock and buffer tube on instead of say a .308 PRS. Not only is it nice to have the option to swap stocks with any of my other ARs or to use stocks such as the Magpul UBR but the AR-15 buffer tube is slightly shorter than the AR-10 buffer tube making it a bit more compact. I’ve shown this setup to tons of people and they love it. To do this I’ve used what is called an LR-308 Carbine Buffer and the LR-308 Carbine Spring.

LR-308 Carbine Buffer in RifleMy FALKOR Defense .308 16″ with a normal AR-15 UBR stock installed.

So far so good but I’ve been thinking about increasing the buffer weight to reduce felt recoil a bit and just make it even smoother. My current buffers weigh in at just 3.8 ounces which is pretty light. Most LR-308 Heavy Buffers are close to $100 so last night, when KAK Industry told me about there new LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer, I was all ears. 

As you may already know, KAK Industry makes all of their parts in house so they not only make sure their Quality Control is top notch but also they can pass on the savings to their customers. The new KAK LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer is made from superior 304 grade stainless steel for durability, hardness, and longevity vs the typical 303 grade stainless steel. They also have solid tungsten cores and weigh 5.5 ounces. Whats even more impressive is that they are selling them at just $55 each. At that price it is a no-brainer to upgrade to the heavy buffer.

These are available for purchase now. I literally just ordered some other parts from KAK Industry last night and should have added a couple of these too. If you’ve got an 308 AR or are in the process of building one, and want to run an AR-15 buffer tube on it, my suggestion is to go with this LR-308 Carbine Heavy Buffer and an LR-308 Carbine Buffer Spring. KAK Industry is an awesome small business to show some support to.

PWS “Blem” Enhanced DI Bolt Carriers

Posted on January 15th, 2016 by ar15news

Got a spare bolt laying around that’s lonely for a carrier or maybe you just want to upgrade the standard BCG in your rifle? PWS (Primary Weapons Systems) has some of their Enhanced QPQ DI AR-15 Bolt Carriers in-stock that are basically used/blems. They were installed in rifles and have some wear marks but have been inspected, new gas key installed and are good to go. PWS complete DI BCGs go for around $249 but you can get a PWS DI Bolt Carrier for just $75. That’s not a bad price at all for the quality you’re getting. Keep in mind, this is just the Bolt Carrier, you will still need an AR-15 bolt to complete it.

NEW!! Shadow Valley Weapons SVCOMP Tuned for 300BLK

Posted on January 8th, 2016 by ar15news

There are tons of options out there when looking for a muzzle device for your 300BLK upper. You just pick any 7.62 muzzle device with a 5/8×24 thread pitch that looks good right? It would be nice if there were more options for muzzle devices that are specifically tuned for the 300BLK round itself which is exactly what Shadow Valley Weapons decided to do with their SVCOMP.

The SVCOMP is a ported compensator that helps reduce muzzle rise that also has an S7 Tool Steel Glass Breaker Tip and a Wire Cutter Channel built in. Shadow Valley Weapons started with a 5.56 version which is what most companies would do but instead of just moving right into a 7.62 generic model and saying it will work with 300BLK, 7.62×39, 7.62×51, etc. they tuned their next model specifically for the 300BLK round.

BCM® AR15 Enhanced Lower Parts Kit

Posted on January 8th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’re an AR builder like most of us are, you’ve undoubtedly wasted money on a junk LPK at least once. Some times its hard to pass them up when you see how cheap they are but you inevitably regret it when you install the parts and see that the mag catch isn’t the right shape, takedown and pivot pins are rough or sized wrong, triggers crap, etc. There are really only a few high quality complete Lower Parts Kit options out there and thanks to Bravo Company USA we now have one more option to add to the list. People have been asking for a BCM LPK for a long time. Now that BCM has its own Fire Control Group (introduced last month), the time has come for complete BCM LPKs.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 5

BCM didn’t just take one of those junk LPKs and add in a nice trigger. As with everything BCM does, there were no corners cut using all USA made components and only the best materials. These LPKs will not only be available as a standalone product but will also now be included in all BCM complete lowers and rifles at no additional charge.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 4

MIL-SPEC QUALITY, MADE ENTIRELY IN THE USA

BCM® now offers a complete lower parts kit for AR15 rifles, made entirely in the USA from components built from Mil-Spec AISI8620 investment castings, AISI8620 bar stock and using 17-7PH stainless steel springs as well as advanced manufacturing methods to insure longevity under hard use.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 4

BCMGUNFIGHTER™ UPGRADES INCLUDED

– BCM® PNT™ Trigger Assembly
– BCM Mod 3 Pistol Grip
– Enhanced Polymer Trigger Guard

The BCM Lower Parts Kit is built from 100% parts machined to Mil-Spec standards with all polymer components are available in Black, FDE, Foliage Green and Wolf Grey.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 4

RESPONSIBILITY, ETHICS, QUALITY

VALUES BEYOND VALUE

Today, the commercial market is flooded with a mash up of inferior imported OEM parts with sloppy dimensions, hardness, finishes, and cheaper alloys. BCM will again, set the standard for quality American made components, that offer a long service life for those that may find themselves in harms’ way.

The BCM LPK is definitely a welcomed new product and at just $99.95 including their new PNT trigger group, the value is definitely there. I’ve paid that much for quality LPKs such as Daniel Defense, etc but that was without the upgraded trigger that BCM includes. These LPKs are currently shipping to dealers all over the country.

Check out this pretty slick new lower from Vorn USA

Posted on January 4th, 2016 by ar15news

The other day I ran across these new lowers from Vorn USA. They are a forged lower receiver called the Lima 1 which features some sweet milling on the surface for weight reduction which looks really cool. I like that they did not machine all the way through which will help them maintain their strength and also keep dirt and dust out of the internals.

I couldn’t find a weight anywhere but as you can see in the photos below, they remove a decent amount of material. Not like an ounce or two is gonna break anyone’s back but ounces can add up. The lowers look pretty stinking sexy and for just $99 with your choice of Black Anodized or a number of different cerakote colors its not a bad deal either. They are also available in raw aluminum for those who want to do their own custom finish.

Get the look of billet, but with the strength of a forging.

–  100% correct Mil spec dimensions
–  CNC Aerospace precision machining
–  Mil spec finish with smooth clean anodize coat

Vorn USA Lima 1 Lower 2Also available in raw aluminum

Now to be 100% up front, until this weekend I had never heard of Vorn USA and I have never handled their product but they are working with some other legit firearms industry companies and seem to be good to go. If you’re interested in the new Lima 1 lowers from Vorn USA, head on over to their website and check them out. I may have to pick up a few of these myself. 

**Edit:  Looks like they are back in-stock.**

NEW!! AR-15 Multi-Tool from Motorcity Tactical Works

Posted on December 31st, 2015 by ar15news

Just happened to run across this new AR-15 multi-tool last night and thought I would share it with you guys. This tool is specifically designed for installing buffer tubes/stock kits on your AR. If you’re planning on building an AR anytime soon you will need specific tools to complete the installation of certain parts such as a Castle Nut Wrench to tighten the castle nut, holding the buffer tube firmly in place.

The AR-15 Multi-tool from Motorcity Tactical Works has a Castle Nut Wrench and A2 Buffer Tube Wrench built into one tool. Its made from 1/4 inch 304 Stainless Steel and has an ergonomic hand grip design. It also incorporates a bottle opener/hanger hook on the opposite end.

The price point is what caught my eye. At just $12.99 each it might be a good tool to just have hanging around the shop for when you need it. I would love to see them move the 5/8″ A2 buffer tube wrench cutout to the middle of the tool which would give them room to add a .750 or .825 muzzle brake wrench to the tool. All in all, looks like a decent little tool to have laying around. Check them out at http://motorcity-tactical-works.myshopify.com/products/ar15-multi-tool

BCMGUNFIGHTER™ PNT (Polished, Nickel, Teflon) Trigger Assembly

Posted on December 23rd, 2015 by ar15news

If you’re late buying a Christmas present for the gun lover in your life, snag one of BCM’s affordable new PNT (Polished Nickel Teflon) trigger assemblies. BCM’s known for their attention to detail and quality so this trigger should be nothing short of awesome. Details and link are listed below. 

Today we are officially announcing the release of the of the  BCMGUNFIGHTER™ PNT (Polished, Nickel, Teflon) Trigger Assembly (AR-15).

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

BCM quality, modern manufacturing processes, and aerospace coatings are combined to ensure parts last a lifetime while performing far beyond requirements established nearly six decades ago.

The BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer are a precision machined Mil-Spec AISI8620 investment casting per the USGI TDP (Mil-Spec) for M16/M4 family of weapons. (not to be confused with MIM parts that are very common in the commercial market). 156/157 holes are honed to assist in perfect alignment and a smooth trigger pull.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

After that, the BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer then goes through a 3 step heat treat and case hardening process for optimal grain structure alignment, yielding a stronger and more wear resistance product.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

Polished
The sear engagement surfaces are ground, but then hand polished for an increased smoothness and reduction in friction up to 300% beyond the Mil-Spec.

Nickel
An electroless nickel finish is applied for a smoother trigger pull with less ‘grit’ and reduced felt ‘creep’. Nickel also provides a long lasting finish that will not corrode, rust, or discolor due to oxidation.

Teflon
Teflon particles are embedded in the nickel, further reducing the friction of the interface and ensuring a long lasting coating. This is done on both the BCM PNT Trigger and Hammer in order to provide the maximum benefit allowed by the nickel coating, by augmenting the low friction and corrosion resistance.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

This assembly includes our impact resistant trigger and hammer pins. They are centerless ground to a fine finish and superior tolerances to ensure compatibility with all MIL SPEC lower receivers built per the USGI TDP.

The BCM Disconnector is stamped from a 1070 material and fine blanked for cleaner edges, double disc ground to precise size. All hammer engagement surfaces are also ground for a super clean reset.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

The processes and tolerances are matched in the BCM PNT™ Trigger Assembly to create a system better than the sum of its parts.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

As with all BCM rifle and accessory products, Made in the USA.

MSRP is $65.00
