NEW!! Fortis Mfg Releases New Aimpoint Mount and Light Mount

Posted on August 28th, 2014 by ar15news

Fortis Manufacturing quietly introduced two new products this week. One is a new version of their awesome F-1 Optics Mount (Aimpoint T-1/H-1 Mount) and the other is a new KeyMod Light Mount. I’ve included pics and details for both new products below.

The Fortis Manufacturing F-1 Optics Mount is one of the cooler looking mounts designed for the Aimpoint T-1/H-1 optic and is now being offered in an Absolute Co-Witness mount height. People have always been asking for an Absolute Co-Witness version of the F-1 Optics Mount which was a Lower 1/3 Co-Witness Mount. Lower 1/3 Co-Witness and Absolute Co-Witness refer to where your Iron Sights line up in relation to the Red Dot. A Lower 1/3 Co-Witness mount is a bit taller so your Iron Sights will be in the lower portion of your optic with the Red Dot just above. With an Absolute Co-Witness mount your Red Dot and Iron Sight will line up together. Having an Absolute Co-Witness mount has its advantages such as being able to sight in your rifle with just your Iron Sights and then line your Red Dot up with them for quick sight-in.

Fortis Mfg also just introduced a new KeyMod Light Mount. This light mount is designed to fit most flashlights with a 1″ body such as the Elzetta Design lights, most SureFire lights, etc. As I mentioned, this is a KeyMod mount and will work with any KeyMod rail. The design of this light mount pushes the position of the flashlight up and forward which makes it much easier to activate the light without having to move your support hand much and also gives you a bit more room on the rail for your hands or other accessories.

TacStrike Drop Steel Swinger On Sale This Week

Posted on August 18th, 2014 by ar15news

There’s nothing quite like shooting steel targets and hearing that audible “ping” when you hit it. One of the coolest targets I shoot on a regular basis is the Drop Steel Swinger steel target I bought from TacStrike awhile back. Its basically a crossbar with 2×2 inch pocket at each end and 5×5 inch steel plate that is suspended from the crossbar. As you shoot it the steel target swings back and forth which adds an interesting dimension to it. I got an email blast from TacStrike the other day letting me know the Drop Steel Swinger was this weeks sale item and is on sale for just $50. That’s 33% cheaper than what I paid for mine which is a really nice discount. You can also pick up an Arched Frame Target Carrier Base (shown in the pictures below) on sale for just $25 while you’re at it.

NEW!! Magpul M-LOK Products Keep Coming

Posted on August 11th, 2014 by ar15news

If there was one thing about M-LOK that I would say is its best feature, its that its….backed by Magpul. The one thing KeyMod was and is still lacking is the support of a powerhouse like Magpul to continually push new products to the market. Look at how long we had to wait for a KeyMod vertical grip. Thankfully Magpul continues to focus on M-LOK products. Their most recent releases are the new grip adapters for their RVG and AFG grips.

The RVG and AFG are two of the most popular rail mounted grips out there so its no surprise that Magpul made adapters specifically for them. Of course you could just purchase an M-LOK rail section and attach your RVG or AFG to it but these adapters are designed to be much more low profile, putting the grip as close as possible to the M-LOK rail instead of stacking a grip on top of a large rail section. If you have an M-LOK rail or are planning on purchasing one and have an RVG or AFG grip, these adapters might be a great thing to pick up at under $10.

NEW!! 9mm AR-15 Buffer from Blitzkrieg Components

Posted on August 7th, 2014 by ar15news

Blitzkrieg Components is primarily best known for their awesome mil spec replacement Chevron front sight posts. Recently they surprised everyone with their new 9mm AR-15 AKTIVE Buffer. The new AKTIVE buffer is designed to cushion the impact between the rear of the Bolt Carrier and the front of the Buffer, dampen the impact at the rear of the Buffer Tube and it also forces the 9mm Bolt Carrier to line up concentric to the inside of the Buffer Tube. All of these things combined reduce felt recoil, helps keep your sights on target for faster followup shots and reduces wear on the firearm. It also makes shooting your 9mm more enjoyable as it will run smoother and quieter. I don’t personally have a 9mm AR…yet…but as soon as I do I will be picking one of these up. Check out the details below. Awesome pics courtesy of Jody Lewis. 

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

Blitzkrieg Components partnered with CTS Engineering to develop a 9mm AR-15 buffer using CTS’s Patent Pending AKTIVE Buffer Technology. The AKTIVE Buffer design uses a solid Stainless Steel buffer body and a 2-stage buffering action to cushion the impact of the Bolt/Bolt Carrier. The buffer has a hard polymer piston head at the front that encloses a captured elastomer shock absorber and has an improved rear bumper. The 2-stage action consists of the piston head compressing the internal elastomer shock absorber, followed by the compression of the rear bumper, creating a much softer impact at the rear of the buffer tube.

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

The impact of the bolt on the barrel as it goes forward into battery is also less than with a conventional weighted buffer or solid buffer. The hard polymer piston head has been redesigned to support the unique 9mm AR-15 application. It accommodates the solid rear profile of 9mm AR-15 bolts and it provides optimal alignment at all times within the buffer tube. Furthermore, the polymer piston head eliminates buffer tube wear and runs completely quiet. The rear bumper is not only more substantial than a convention bumper, but it is secured to the stainless buffer body with a bolt instead of a flimsy roll pin. The blowback operation of the 9mm AR-15 drives a very heavy bolt (normally16 ounces) much harder than a standard AR-15 BCG and it needs to be dampened as much as possible to optimize the system, reduce wear on the firearm and reduce recoil and sight movement.

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

Blitzkrieg 9mm AR Buffer 1

The design is simple, yet very effective and will feel softer and run quieter than any conventional AR buffer. Spring noise is also eliminated using this buffer. Most spring noise on 9mm AR15s comes from the abrupt stop of a conventional buffer causing spring vibration. Our buffer dampens the impact for a soft landing which completely eliminates this vibration and noise. The length of this buffer stops the bolt just behind the bolt catch on a 9mm AR-15 without the need for a spacer. We recommend pairing this buffer with our 9mm AR-15 carbine buffer spring or a high quality .308 AR-10 carbine spring to sufficiently slow the rearward bolt velocity. Our high performance buffer springs are available separately as well as in buffer/spring combinations for the ultimate in strength, consistency and extremely long service life. 

Length: 3.93″ 
Weight: 5.2 ounces
