NEW!! B.E. Meyers 249F Flash Hider Now Melonite Coated

Posted on September 15th, 2014 by ar15news

My buddy Roy at Weapon Outfitters just posted on his Facebook page that the B.E. Meyers 249F 5.56 Flash Hider will now have a Melonite coating which is awesome as it Melonite offers great corrosion resistance and is applied inside and out of the entire piece.  The 249F is an awesome flash hider that has been used in Military/Special Operations for years now and was recently made available to civilians as well primarily through Weapon Outfitters. I have one pinned to my 13.7″ Weapon Outfitters upper (16″ OAL) and its very impressive. If you’re looking for a great Flash Hider, this would definitely be one that I would recommend.

My Journey To NFA Ownership Starts Now

Posted on September 9th, 2014 by ar15news

I’ve finally decided to get involved in the world of NFA Ownership and I’m going to document my journey. Basically, I want to legally own an SBR, Suppressor, etc. As a life long gun owner in the state of Michigan, it was all but impossible to own Suppressors or SBR/SBS due to state regulations…that is until now. Over the past few years Michigan gun owners have spoken up and lobbied the State Legislators to lift the ban on Suppressors and most recently the ban on SBRs and SBSs. After all, why would a state feel they need tighter regulations than what our Federal Government does.

As a family man with a wife and kids, I wanted to make sure there were no legal issues with my wife, or children as they get older, being in possession of my NFA regulated items. I decided to start with an NFA Trust but I’m new to this so I didn’t know where start. My buddy Stickman (widely regarded as one of the top weapons photographers in the industry) started his 100K Giveaway on Facebook a few weeks ago and one of the sponsors is a company called Coyote Rifleworks. They advertise $95 NFA Trusts and Same Day Turnaround. This sounded awesome, almost too good to be true, so I contacted them through Facebook to get some additional information. I got a very prompt/friendly response and we decided to talk on the phone. Eric spent an hour on the phone with me explaining how at Coyote Rifleworks they want to help as many people become NFA Owners as possible. They could charge more but don’t ever want anyone to say “I just couldn’t afford it.”. They’ve spent a ton of money having an attorney help them create the trust that you ultimately receive. I really felt comfortable with these guys so I decided to go for it.

I will be documenting my entire process of becoming an NFA Owner from start to finish. You’ll know of any and all snags, if any, that I run into. My gut feeling is that this will be a very enjoyable, easy process. I can tell you right now I have already filled out the required information on Coyote Rifleworks’ website, called to make payment and received my trust paperwork back within a few hours. Now that’s impressive and I’m very happy so far. I will go into more detail on this process including what to do after you get your trust paperwork back in the next article in this series. You can keep track of my progress by following along on the website or using this specific thread URL: http://www.ar15news.com/category/ar15news-journey-to-nfa-ownership/ You can also get started on your very own NFA Trust now at www.CoyoteRifleworks.com.

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.

Fortis Mfg prides themselves on producing American Made, high quality, affordable AR-15 accessories and components and these products are exactly that. Both products are available for purchase now at the links I’ve supplied below.

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.
