Aero Precision Automatic Flip-Up BUIS

Posted on June 10th, 2016 by ar15news

Aero Precision already makes pretty much everything else for an AR so why not a nice set of BUIS (Back Up Iron Sights) too? The Aero Precision AR-15 Flip-Up Sights feature an all metal 7-series aluminum construction and made right here in the USA. Push the button on the side and the spring action automatically flips them up into position. These can be purchased separately or as a complete set and are pretty affordable for a nice set of BUIS. Take a look at the pics and specs below.

The Aero Precision AR15 Front Flip-Up Sight and the AR15 Rear Flip-Up Sight are both made with high-quality aluminum. Whether using as your main sights or as back-up sights for another optic, you can count on the accuracy and durability this set offers.

AERO Precision QUANTUM Series AR-15 Handguards

Posted on April 25th, 2016 by ar15news

AERO Precision has just introduced their new Quantum Series Handguard. The Quantum Series is similar to their other hand guards that are designed to mount directly to their M4E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver but you can also add an optional barrel nut at checkout to use this handguard in conjunction without the M4E1 Enhanced Upper. The hand guards are very simple with no 1913 rail section at the top but it does have a spot at the front of the rail to mount a small rail section for use with Front BUIS.

What surprised me the most was the price point on these. Both KeyMod and M-LOK versions are available in 7″, 9″, 12″ and 15″ and range from as little as $65 for the 7″ without a barrel nut or up to $110 for the 15″ including the optional barrel nut. That is extremely affordable. You can check out the information and pictures below. These are available for purchase now at www.AEROPrecision.com.

NEW!! Faxon Firearms STREAMLINE M-LOK Handguards

Posted on January 14th, 2016 by ar15news

As we’ve mentioned in the past, Faxon Firearms has grown a lot over the last year or two with the addition of AR-15 barrels, now offering complete Direct Impingement AR-15’s and now they are offering their own line of AR-15 handguards. Faxon Firearms has introduced their new STREAMLINE M-LOK Handguards which include a 12 o’clock run of 1913 rail surrounded by 7 additional runs of M-LOK cutouts. They’ve also opted to not include a sling mount which I like because it doesn’t add bulk to the rail and lets you add an M-LOK sling mount wherever you want it. The rail is very sleek looking and is available in 7″, 9″, 13″ and 15″ lengths with an extremely competitive price range of just $135 to $149. Check out the press release and images below, then head on over to www.FaxonFirearms.com to snag one for yourself.

American Defense Manufacturing just announced a few new red dot sight mounts. They are already well known for their Quick Detach scope mounts and red dot mounts but are adding a couple of cool options by way of a 33 degree and 45 degree offset mount for the Aimpoint T1/T2 red dot sight and the Trijicon RMR red dot sight.

American Defense Mfg T1 RMR offset QD Mounts

As you are probably already aware, engaging targets at close range with a traditional magnified scope is not an easy thing to do. Many guys will install offset backup sights which can take more time to align the front and rear sight if you need to rapidly acquire a target. By using an offset red dot sight mount you get the benefit of not having to align anything, just put the red dot where it needs to be and fire.  

Choose between 33 and 45 degree offsets and Left or Right hand style. There are other options out there but until today, none were being offered by ADM with their trusted QD system which is a big deal. You can check these out for yourself at the links below.

Posted on October 8th, 2015 by ar15news

Assembly
The requirements for assembly of our Bolt Carrier Groups are much higher than most. Before assembling the gas key to the carrier, permatex NO.3D aviation is applied to form-a-gasket around the gas hole (per MIL-SPEC). Then Grade-8 hardware is used to attach the gas key, followed by properly staking per spec. When installing the extractor to the bolt, a crane-o-ring is inserted with the spring to insure proper ejection. Then high temperature grease is applied to the gas rings before inserting the bolt into the carrier, which allows for much smoother operation. These BCGs are inspected to the highest of standards, to insure a high quality product that is 100% reliable for our customer… PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA!
