Great Deal On NEW Magpul MBUS PRO LR Adjustable Rear Sight

Posted on February 5th, 2015 by ar15news

Recently Magpul introduced a new version of the super popular MBUS PRO rear sight called the MBUS PRO LR which has a built in elevation adjustment wheel with preset detents at 50 meter increments all the way out to 600 meters. As always, buying a rear sight is always more expensive than buying a front sight…just because. Normal retail on this sight is $129.95 but thankfully our buddy Eric over at VF Gunrunners is the king of MBUS PRO deals and is running a special pre-order deal on this new sight. VF Gunrunners offers the MBUS PRO LR sight alone for $103.99 with FREE SHIPPING or you combine it with the MBUS PRO Front Sight for just $156.99 with FREE SHIPPING. I don’t know about you but I really appreciate companies that offer free shipping on stuff. It takes the guess work out of “Am I really getting a good deal?”. Check out the pics of the new MBUS PRO LR sight below and hit the links to get in on this great deal.

Posted on January 13th, 2015 by ar15news

It really was only a matter of time before Magpul decided to venture into the drum mag business. We know they have the expertise to make a high quality affordable magazine and have recently added 40 rounds PMAGs to their lineup. Today they introduced the new PMAG D60 which is a lightweight, compact polymer 60 r0und drum mag. It features a special loading lever to make loading easier, a clear “full magazine indication window” on the back, can be inserted on a closed bolt and holds the bolt open after the last round. It also can be easily disassembled for cleaning. Magpul says it will begin shipping Spring/Summer 2015 with an MSRP of $129.95 but they will not be making “cut-away” or “transparent” models. www.Magpul.com

The PMAG D-60. Sixty rounds. Reliable, durable, lightweight, shorter than a 30 rd mag, and full of features that make it extremely easy to use. MSRP $129.95. Please not that transparent back and cut-away versions were for testing purposes only, and the solid drum with round indicator window is the variant that will be offered for sale.

NEW!! Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights

Posted on November 20th, 2014 by ar15news

Man, I am seriously going poor with all of these awesome new products that companies like Magpul are releasing lately. With the release of the new Offset version of the awesome MBUS PRO sights, I don’t see the bleeding stopping anytime soon. Offset sights work great with magnified optics. Switch from magnified (longer range) optics to non-magnified (close range) sights by simply rotating the gun about 45 degrees. The fact that these are collapsible sights make them very low profile when not in use as well.

I’ll race you over there to see who can get a set faster.

NEW!! Scalarworks LDM Ultra Light Weight Aimpoint T-1 Mount

Posted on October 17th, 2014 by ar15news

Scalarworks has just released their new LDM with stands for Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint Micro (T-1 and H-1) optics. The LDM goes against conventional thought regarding optic mounts which says you can’t have Light Weight and Quick Detach at the same time. Weighing in at just 1.33 ounces and featuring a notched thumbwheel with ball detent that won’t back-out under heavy recoil you can now have the best of both worlds. Check out the pictures and press release for the Scalarworks LDM below. Additional information is also available at Scalarworks.com.

SCALARWORKS LAUNCHES WORLD’S LIGHTEST QUICK-DETACH AIMPOINT MICRO MOUNT.

Scalarworks_ldm-micro_twins

South Orange, NJ – October 15, 2014 – Scalarworks, manufacturer of high-performance firearm accessories, is pleased to introduce the Low Drag Mount for Aimpoint Micro sights (LDM/Micro); the lightest quick-detach Aimpoint Micro mount in existence – weighing only 1.33oz. The LDM/Micro is a lightweight, low-profile, quick-detach optic mount that is compatible with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rails and all Aimpoint Micro sights, including the new Aimpoint Micro T-2.

The Scalarworks LDM/Micro has a streamlined profile, free of protruding levers or knobs, featuring a notched thumbscrew with ball detent that won’t back out under sharp recoil. It also has a precision telescoping clamp that ensures a repeatable zero with each installation, while conforming to out of spec rails, without requiring additional adjustments.

NEW!! Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield Muzzle Device

Posted on October 13th, 2014 by ar15news

If you’ve ever stood next to someone shooting an AR you’ve definitely felt and heard the ear drum shattering concussion with every shot. The new QD Blast Shield from Griffin Armament helps reduce this concussive force by redirecting it forward away from the shooter or those next to the shooter. The QD Blast Shield is certainly not the first of its kind but has some unique features that make it one of the best designs I’ve seen. 

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

One of the main features I really like about the QD Blast Shield is that it will work with multiple muzzle devices that Griffin Armament offers but is also compatible with the readily available A2 flash hider giving you multiple different options for the muzzle device you use under the QD Blast Shield. However, I would recommend one of the Griffin Armament QD 5.56 mounts if you really want to have a sweet setup! 

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

The QD system itself is another thing I feel Griffin Armament improved on. Instead of a screw on or ratcheting system the QD Blast Shield locks on by pressing the locking gate to the side and engaging the spring clip. To remove the QD Blast Shield you have to manually disengage the spring clip and then pull the locking gate out to the side making it virtually impossible to disengage accidentally. This is the same QD system that they use on their flagship M4SD Silencers.

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

There are plenty of nice features of the QD Blast Shield but the last one I’m going to touch on is the visually appealing aspect of it. This thing just looks awesome. The black Melonite finish and triangular shape is much different than other similar products on the market but these looks are an upgrade in function as well which you can read more about below.

 Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 4

The QD Blast Shield was designed to offer significant concussion reduction for the end user and other team members operating in the immediate vicinity. Often team members in CQB environments experience concussion from muzzle blast that is not only deafeningly loud, but also can cause prolonged headaches that can last for days afterwards.

Especially effective on short barrels, the unique design of the QD Blast Shield directs concussive force forward while triangular gas flow pockets allow the muzzle device to retain it’s specific performance goals. Ultra strong 17-4PH stainless steel provides a robust material to withstand intense use and full auto fire without fear of failure. Fluted geometry in the triangular shield lightens the unit while providing internal front supports for the muzzle device.

Melonite QPQ surface treatment provides an extremely hard, durable, and attractive finish.

The QD mechanism is fast, positive, and free of wear prone geometry commonly found in ratcheting devices. The QD Blast Shield also comes with a shim set and overtravel stop to refit your A2 compensator for optimal use.

The Griffin QD Blast Shield is compatible with our line of QD 5.56mm mounts, Including the Flash Comp, Muzzle Brake, Compensating Flash Hider, and Tactical Compensator. It is also compatible with A2 Compensators that fall within the NATO spec blueprinted dimensions. Although many companies manufacture A2 style compensators not all of them are dimensioned properly. Not Compatible with BCM, BCE or PWS muzzle devices.

Griffin Armament has continued to pursue product development that will enhance hearing safety in tactical and shooting sport situations. The QD Blast Shield is a great product for those that would like to reduce the concussion of their muzzle devices.

You can order your QD Blast Shield from Griffin Armament at www.GriffinArmament.com.

The “Tango On A String” is basically a torso and head shaped AR500 steel target that hanged from a crossbar.
