“Deplorable” Patch by Forward Controls Design

Posted on September 20th, 2016 by ar15news

Usually I wouldn’t want to be considered “deplorable” but when someone like Hillary Clinton (Killary) basically says anyone who doesn’t support her is deplorable, you can surely count me in that basket of people. Forward Controls Design has come up with the Deplorable Patch which 2.75″ wide and 1″ tall with a Multicam background and Velcro backing. You can purchase the patch for $6 shipped or get one free with any purchase over $75. Get yours at www.ForwardControlsDesign.com.  **Update: the first batch sold out but you can still order one.**

deplorable-patch

We’ve always tried to stay out of politics, for it is our part to innovate and produce superior US made firearms components, not to take sides in politics and proselytize,  I believe that being in the firearms business makes it impossible to stay neutral.

Apparently, half of us belong in the basket of deplorables, and of these, some are irredeemable.  Thus have we been labelled by the most corrupt and dishonest presidential contender in recent history.

We are not politically correct, and we are not useful idiots.  Fortunately, we’re also not without a self deprecating sense of humor.  If it is our lot to be sneered at and made fun of, I say embrace the basket, and stay deplorable my friends 🙂

The patch is free with orders of $75 or more (while supplies last), and available for sale.  We will make a donation to a worthy cause and post the receipt here

The Velcro backed patch is 2.75″ wide and 1″ tall, with Multicam background, OD border and black text.

**NEW** Wilson Combat Q-Comp

Posted on September 19th, 2016 by ar15news

Sometimes the simpler the better and that appears to be the case with the new Wilson Combat Q-Comp. Usually when you hear the name “Wilson Combat” you instantly think of their $2,500 rifles or $3,500+ handguns but in their Q-Comp throws all that aside and not only is a simple product but a very effective and affordable one too. 

The Wilson Combat Q-Comp has been designed by our compensator experts to greatly enhance recoil control in rapid fire without the harsh blast and flash that other AR-15 muzzle devices exhibit.

wilson-combat-q-comp

The Q-Comp is a hybrid AR-15 brake/compensator that has been tuned to minimize side-blast and concussion compared to other muzzle devices on the market. This exclusive Wilson Combat design displays almost zero muzzle flash yet retains excellent vertical and rearward recoil reduction with all calibers.

wilson-combat-q-comp

The slotted expansion chamber design of the Q-Comp has no prongs or tines to break off or snag and is Melonite QPQ coated alloy steel for maximum durability and corrosion resistance. The Q-Comp is easily installed on your AR rifle using the included crush washer.

“We have met our goal of development with the Q-Comp design with exceptional recoil control without the excess noise, flash and concussion common to most rifle muzzle brake designs. The Q-Comp will really enhance your tactical rifle shooting experience.”-Bill Wilson, President of Wilson Combat. 

The Wilson Combat Q-Comp is available for purchase now at www.ShopWilsonCombat.com

**Press Release**

Grinnell, Iowa – Brownells proudly offers a new AR-15 front sight, the Battle Arms Development ARCHITEK™, #100-019-664. Available exclusively from Brownells, the sight retails for $89.99.

battle-arms-development-clamp-on-front-sight-post-1

Designed for shooters who prefer using iron sights, the ARCHITEK™ simply clamps onto a standard AR-15 barrel between .735″ and .750″ in diameter, and extends the sight radius to the maximum length possible. It works on rifles without the traditional front sight tower gas block.

battle-arms-development-clamp-on-front-sight-post-1

battle-arms-development-clamp-on-front-sight-post-1

It also compensates for any variances in free-float handguard design or installation, or flexing due to firing or sling pressure that could cause imperfect sight alignment. Precision machined from billet aluminum, the ARCHITEK™ is strong but weighs only 1.3 oz. to help keep the rifle balanced and fast-handling.

“We are very pleased to offer our latest product, the ARCHITECK, exclusively through Brownells,” said George Huang, President/CEO of Battle Arms Development. “There is a long working history with Brownells since the early days of Battle Arms Development, and we are honored to be involved in this project.”

The front sight post is thinner than the typical A2-style post and won’t obstruct targets at long ranges. Modeled after the AK-47 front post, the ARCHITEK™ front post allows adjustments with a set of standard pliers, or an AK-47 front sight tool.

Merchandise Manager Paul Levy demonstrated the ARCHITEK™ in a video filmed at the Big Springs range complex.

Customers can order an ARCHITEK™ front sight from Brownells.com, or call 800-741-0015.

**NEW** Phase 5 Tactical Sloped Quick Disconnect End Plate

Posted on September 6th, 2016 by ar15news

Pretty sure I have a QD End Plate on just about every rifle I’ve ever built but they all require you to get your big (sometimes gloved) hands into this tiny area to attach/detach the QD sling swivel. The new Sloped Quick Disconnect End Plate (SQD-EP) addresses that issue and gives you a nice ambi QD sling mount. It also covers up some of the castle nut for a cleaner look. I will definitely pick one of these up for my next build and see how it goes. Looks like a great design. Read more about it and check out the pics below.

 P5T SQD-EPP5T SQD-EP 3

The Phase 5 Sloped Quick Disconnect End Plate (SQD-EP) was designed to replace the standard AR15/M4 carbine end plate. While still meeting the requirements of the original design, the SQD-EP is lighter and QD Swivel compatible.

PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA FROM USA RAW BILLET 7075-T6 ALUMINUM.

– Compatible with mil-spec carbine reciever extensions, commercial-spec reciever extensions, and all Phase 5 Pistol Buffer Tubes on nearly all AR15/M4/.308 AR Variant lower recievers.
– Lightweight and sturdy 7075-T6 billet aluminum construction is about 80% stronger than 6061-T6 aluminum.
– Uses a standard AR15/M4 carbine Lower reciever extension castle nut (not included).
– Accepts all push button QD swivels and QD slings.
– QD mount is at a 30 Degree angle from the lower reciever to allow a 360 Degree rotation for ambidextrious use.
– Lighter than the standard stamped steel reciever extention end plate (0.39 oz vs 0.48 oz.

The SQD-EP is in-stock and shipping now. Normally I would just link to the manufacturer  (Phase5WSI.com) for new product announcements but I also just noticed that these are available at an intro price at www.RainierArms.com now through 9/15/16. 

3 New Products from Arisaka Defense

Posted on August 25th, 2016 by ar15news

Arisaka Defense recently added 3 new products to their lineup so we figured we’d tell you about them all in one post. 

First is the Low Profile Bipod Mount for Harris S-series (S-BR, S-BRM, S-L, S-LM, S-25, and S-25C) Bipods. The Low Profile Bipod Mount replaces the entire stock sling swivel interface with a minimalist Picatinny mount. Rotation limiters allow for approximately 15 degrees of cant to either side for leveling, and the mount is compatible with pod lock levers.

Arisaka Low Profile Harris S Bipod Mount 2

The Low Profile Bipod Mount places the bipod 1/8″ below the Picatinny rail, greatly reducing the overall height. Combined with its weight at just over one ounce and a short 1.4″ length, it significantly reduces bulk compared to the stock mount. Machined from billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized, the Low Profile Bipod Mounts are built for rough use and long term reliability.

Arisaka Low Profile Harris S Bipod Mount 2


Next up is the Low Profile Picatinny Rails for KeyMod and MLOK. These 5 slot rails feature a reduced height to pull Picatinny accessories closer to the handguard. They also utilize three KeyMod or M-Lok fasteners which will spread the increased stress of large Picatinny accessories like bipods or vertical grips over more slots on the rail.

Arisaka Low profile picatinny rail keymod mlok

The Low Profile Picatinny Rails are machined out of billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized.

Proudly made in the USA and available now on the Arisaka site:

Low Profile Picatinny Rail KeyMod

Low Profile Picatinny Rail M-Lok


Last but not least is the new SureFire M620 Adapter for Offset Scout Mounts. The Offset M620 Adapter allows Surefire M620 Scout lights to be used with our Offset Scout Mount, and preserves the adjustability, allowing for side to side placement for additional clearance around front sights or other top rail mounted accessories. The wrap-around design also keeps the light on the same plane as a M300 or M600 Scout light used without the Offset M620 Adapter.

Mesa, AZ, August 23, 2016 – XTECH Tactical, manufacturer of the Advanced Tactical Grip is today introducing two new products for the HK VP9 pistol. First up is the new 5rd Magazine Extender for VP9 magazines. The XTECH Tactical mag extender adds an additional 5 round capacity to the VP9 magazine for a 20 round total. The mag extender is super simple to install with absolutely no tools needed.

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales and Marketing for XTECH Tactical explains how they have eliminated reliability concerns that plague many other mag extenders.

“The biggest thing for function is that we have a 100% consistent ID within the extender portion AND the  ID within the extender is less than the ID of the magazine.  The benefit here is that it is impossible for the extender to cause a Fail to Feed which is a known issue in extenders.”

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

The XTECH Tactical VP9 5rd Mag Extender is now shipping with an MSRP of $29.95 with FREE SHIPPING through the end of August.  http://www.xtechtactical.com/mtx-vp9p30-5-magazine-extender-with-spring/  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Additionally, XTECH Tactical will be offering complete XTECH Tactical VP9 magazines with and without the Mag Extender. The XTECH Tactical VP9 magazine will feature a 310 Stainless Steel body vs H&K’s Spring Steel body. It will also feature an extra round indicator hole to show the 20th round as shown in the photo below.

XTECH VP9 Mag 20 round 2

The XTECH Tactical 20 and 15 Round VP9 magazines will start shipping early this fall. The 20 Round magazine MSRP is $59.95 and the 15 Round magazine is $34.95.  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Two forward angle brake ports on the  CRC 556  provide greatly reduced muzzle rise & mitigate felt recoil while the front forks distort and reduce flash signature.
