KAK Industry Contract Overrun Barrel Blowout

Posted on August 26th, 2015 by ar15news

Have you ever wondered what happens when a manufacturer makes a bunch of product for an OEM client, only to have them not pay their bill? Well, when it happens to KAK they make sure that you the customer get a hookup! This is exactly what happened to our friends at KAK Industry recently and they made sure to let us know so we can tell you.

All of the barrels listed below are 41V50 steel with a Melonite finish for superior durability and corrosion resistance. Typically you would pay $250+ for these barrels but since you get to cut out the middle man and buy directly from the manufacturer, they are blowing them out at $100-110 each. These are NOT BLEM barrels! You can choose from 8.5″, 10.5″ and 16″ 300BLK with 1:8 Twist or a 16″ 5.56 with 1:7 Twist. The 16″ 300BLK with pistol length gas is a cool one for those looking to build a 16″ 300BLK that cycles subs without a can and the 16″ length helps it not be as loud as a shorter barrel.

8.5 300 BLK PISTOL 1:8  –  $100
10.5 300 BLK PISTOL 1:8  –  $100

11.0 5.56 NATO CARBINE 1:9  –  $100
16.0 5.56 NATO CARBINE 1:7  –  $110

I personally have used quite a few KAK Industry barrels over the past few years and they are an extremely good value. Being able to get them for just $100 is a steal! I seriously would recommend picking up a few for future builds.

AR-15 Buffer Tube Adapter for SIG MPX Pistol

Posted on August 18th, 2015 by ar15news

KAK Industry is introducing their new AR-15 Buffer Tube Adapter for the SIG SAUER MPX Pistol. This is pretty exciting as many people who bought the MPX Pistol are still waiting waiting for SIG to release stocks adapters for them. With the new KAK Industry AR-15 Buffer Tube Adapter, MPX Pistol owners will be able to attach any AR-15 Buffer Tubes. This will allow the use of Pistol Braces like the Shockwave or SB-15 or if the MPX has been SBR’d they will be able to install a standard AR-15 buffer tube and add any AR-15 stock they want. Here are some pictures of the first unit off the machines just before heading off to be anodized.

The retail units will all be anodized black and start shipping around 8/25/15. Get in on the pre-order at just $43 for the kit at www.KAKIndustry.com.

Griffin Armament SN-ACH Ambi Charging Handle with Gas Port

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

The new Griffin Armament SN-ACH or Suppressor Normalized Ambi Configurable Handles are back in-stock. The new SN-ACH ambi charing handle features a gas port on the right side that redirects gas away from the face of the shooter. It also features ambi modular handles that can be easily swapped out for smaller or lager handles. 

Griffin Armament SN-ACH 4

Normally when you shoot an AR-15, the gasses that make your gun function are expelled through the ejection port but during suppressed shooting there are excess gasses and pressure that usually forces gas right into the face of the shooter through the charging handle opening at the rear of the upper. By machining a gas port on the portion of the charging handle that is outside of the receiver, the SN-ACH allows most of those excess gasses to exit away from the shooter.

If you’re looking for an extremely robust ambi charing handle or shoot suppressed and are tired of getting gas to the face, the Griffin Armament SN-ACH is an option to look at. Head on over to www.GriffinArmament.com and snag one before they’re sold out again.

NEW!! Rainier Arms XTC 2.0 Pre-Order / Intro Price

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Rainier Arms just released the new XTC 2.0 muzzle device which is the newest variation of their original RA XTC. The XTC 2.0 expands on the original versions capabilities with the tuned first port that mitigates the muzzle rise while the extra side port keeps the rifle planted for faster repeated follow up shots. The XTC 2.0 also features compatibility with the coming soon Fortis Mfg Control Blast Shield. The overall look has been refined such as a machined in “RAINIER ARMS” on the bottom of the muzzle device but no other markings making for a very clean looking finish.

RA XTC 2.0 2

I have a few of them in my hands right now and I have to tell you, these things are sexy! Rainier Arms takes great pride in offering some of the nicest components for your AR’s and these show that. You can get in on the pre-sale for the new XTC 2.0 and save 15% but this sale is only for a short time.

There is no code needed for this pre-sale. The 15% has already been applied making the price just $67.95 which is a steal for a very nice muzzle brake. The new Rainier Arms XTC 2.0 for 5.56 can be purchased only at www.RainierArms.com

NEW!! MagPods Are Now Available In FDE

Posted on August 11th, 2015 by ar15news

MagPod has been working on a new FDE version for the past few months with an expected release of August and it looks like they weren’t kidding. Our friends at VF Gunrunners is one of, if not the first to get in a batch of the FDE MagPods. The MagPod FDE perfectly matches the Magpul FDE…which is a good thing because they go on Magpul PMAGs. I have used MagPods ranging from one of the first prototypes to full production models and many in-between and I can tell you they work great for adding a stable shooting platform while shooting prone without the need of a bipod. They also make for a great Mag-Pull when retrieving a new mag during a reload. VFGunrunners has 3-pack of FDE MagPods in-stock for $19.95 with Free Shipping. Hit him up at www.VFGunrunners.com.

New!! Mega Arms .308 SLIDE LOCK Ambi Charging Handle

Posted on August 11th, 2015 by ar15news

Mega Arms just let us know they are now shipping the .308 version of their popular SLIDE LOCK ambi charging handle. As you may recall, the SLIDE LOCK is an ambi charging handle that does not have the usual latch required to release the charging handle. Instead it uses spring pressure to keep the charging handle in place until you pull back on either side of it at which time it releases and functions exactly like any other charging handle. With the popularity of the Mega Arms MATEN and the AR-10 in general soaring this has been something people have been asking for more and more. Now that Mega Arms has started shipping units, all you have to do is keep an eye out at the typical Mega Arms dealers such as Rainier Arms and snag one when they come in.
