All Ballistic Advantage 5.45×39 AR Barrels On Sale

Posted on July 25th, 2014 by ar15news

Our friends at Ballistic Advantage make some pretty sweet AR Barrels. I just noticed that all of their 5.45×39 barrels are on sale through the end of the month. 5.45×39 is a round used in Russian weapons such as the AK74 but recently gained popularity in the AR market due to its inexpensive prices. Unfortunately the least expensive version of 5.45×39 ammunition, 7N6, was banned from import but you can still find standard 5.45×39 ammunition for just over $.20 per round. Ballistic Advantage offers 16 different 5.45×39 barrels including 7.5″, 10.5″, 14.5″, 16″, 18″ SPR, 20″ DMR and more of different barrel contours. All barrels have a QPQ corrosion resistant coating and include a Wolf Extra Power Hammer Spring. This is one of, if not the largest selection of 5.45×39 barrels I’ve seen and they are ALL on sale right now for just $150 each. If you’re like me and stocked up on 5.45×39 ammo before the ban happened or just want to build something a bit different, now is a great time to do it at www.BallisticAdvantage.com.

NEW!! Noveske KX5 Now Available In 7.62 (5/8×24 TPI)

Posted on July 17th, 2014 by ar15news

The Noveske KX3, also commonly known as the Flaming Pig, has been an extremely popular muzzle device for a while now. The only downside was you couldn’t fit it underneath the Noveske NSR rail system or many other rail system. After I’m sure thousands of requests to make a slimmer version, Noveske unveiled the new KX5. The KX5 will now fit under most rail systems including the Noveske NSR. At first they KX5 was only available in 5.56 but we knew the 7.62 version was coming. Just yesterday Noveske added the 7.62 KX5′s to the website so you can now snag a few for yourself. If you’ve been waiting for a 7.62 KX5, be sure to jump on these now while they’re in-stock at www.ShopNoveske.com.

NEW!! AERO Precision .308 Forged Receivers

Posted on June 27th, 2014 by ar15news

If you’re a fan of AERO Precision like we are, you’re going to love what we have to tell you next. We’ve been hearing little bits and pieces about the possibility of AERO Precision releasing their own .308 AR receivers but nobody really knew when that would happen. That is until earlier this week when they released not just their own .308 AR receivers but their own custom forging that looks really awesome. Unlike most .308 AR components, AERO Precision was able to keep the cost to basically what you would pay for regular 5.56 AR receivers. The new AERO Precision .308 AR receivers are available separately or in a complete Upper and Lower set. If you’re thinking about building a .308 rifle, this is an awesome, cost effective option. I’m personally thinking about doing a sweet all AERO Precision build using this receiver set and their .308 barrel which I think would be sweet. We shall see. Pricing and links are listed below. GeT sOmE!!

AERO Precision .308 Upper Receiver – $135

Five New Billet Upper Versions from CMT Tactical

Posted on June 17th, 2014 by ar15news

CMT Tactical has been making some really nice billet upper and lower receivers for a while now. You might be thinking, “Yeah, everyone is making billet receivers now.” and you aren’t too far off. What’s setting CMT Tactical apart is their true dedication to quality and the fact that they are willing to develop additional variations of their receives to meet the needs of their customers and potential customers. Recently they introduced five, yes you read that correct F-I-V-E, new versions of their billet AR-15 upper receiver starting at just $128. I’ve listed these new uppers below. Two are in-stock now and the other three will be out next month. Check them out and see if any of them will work for your next build.

First up is the CMT Tactical UPUR-1A. This upper has all of the same features as the original UPUR-1 upper (forward assist, dust cover, 7075-T6 construction, etc) but now features an enlarged Ejection Port making it compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper is in-stock now!

Second is the CMT Tactical UPUR-2. The UPUR-2 is very similar to the standard CMT Tactical billet upper but they’ve removed the Forward Assist. It still has a Shell Deflector and a Dust Cover and is NOT compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

The third new upper is the CMT Tactical UPUR-3 billet upper. Basically take the UPUR-1A and remove the dust cover and forward assist. You now have a Slick Side billet AR-15 upper that will work great for any AR build but has the enlarged Ejection Port for 458 SOCOM builds. This upper is in-stock now!

The CMT Tactical UPUR-3A is the fourth new upper from CMT Tactical and basically expands on the UPUR-3 upper. This version has a cutout for side charging BCG’s and large enough Ejection Port opening to be compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

The fifth and final new upper is the CMT Tactical UPUR-4. This upper is a new Slick Side version that addresses the concerns many people have with Slick Side uppers and that is the lack of a Dust Cover to keep contaminants out of the upper. The new UPUR-4 has no Forward Assist or Shell Deflector but it does still let you use a Dust Cover which is a cool feature. As with most of these new uppers the Ejection Port has been slight enlarged to work with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

NEW!! ALG Defense EMR Rail with M-LOK

Posted on June 13th, 2014 by ar15news

ALG Defense, sister company to Geissele Automatics, has just introduced a new model of their awesome EMR (Ergonomic Modular Rail) which now features the M-LOK mounting system. M-LOK is the new Magpul backed mounting system which is quickly gaining a lot of support from some big name manufacturers such as Geissele and now ALG Defense. Having ALG Defense support M-LOK is huge because they bring a “bang for your buck” component that most other manufacturers can’t. The new EMR M-LOK rails will start at just $100 and no, that’s not a typo.

The EMR M-LOK will be offered in 10″, 12″ and 13″ lengths just like the standard EMR but now weighs less and costs less. As you’ll notice in the picture below, there are a ton of possible mounting configurations for the M-LOK rail sections and accessories. In keeping with the original EMR lightweight modular design, even the top 12 o’clock area is M-LOK so you can put rail sections where you need them for sights and accessories and not where you don’t. One thing you will want to keep in mind when ordering your rail is that the EMR M-LOK does not come with any M-LOK rail sections. All you need to do is think through the setup you plan on running and buy the needed rail sections.

The ALG Defense EMR M-LOK rails are available for purchase right now and I can’t think of a better way to try out a new mounting system than with a very high quality rail that doesn’t break the bank. You can find more information and purchase the ALG Defense EMR M-LOK rails at www.ALGDefense.com. M-LOK accessory rails are listed at the bottom of that same page.

Quentin Defense is pretty well know for affordable, quality billet and forged receivers including some awesome lowers with different Military branch symbol roll marks. QD recently introduced some brand new products to their already awesome lineup of billet AR receivers including two brand new ambi lowers and a .308 Billet upper.

First is the new ambi billet lowers. They look like the standard QD billet but feature an Ambi Bolt Release. These are being offered in both 100% and 80% configurations. The 100%’s are anodized and look great. The 80% model is not anodized and needs to have the fire control pocket machined out but DOES include the ambi bolt release. I really like that QD added the ambi option especially to the 80% model as that is pretty rare in the 80% world.

At the beginning of the year I started telling people that this was going to be the year of the .308 AR. So far this year we’ve seen more .308 components pop up than ever before. Quentin Defense has just introduced a nice looking DPMS profile .308 Billet upper receiver. Definitely worth checking out if you’re planning a .308 build.

Faxon Firearms is definitely most well known for their amazing ARAK-21 Piston Upper that includes a proprietary quick change barrel system. They’ve proven they know how to produce a quality upper and barrels and have recently started making standard AR-15 barrels as well. Because they are making these barrels in-house, they are able to offer a quality product at an amazing price point. They have a great selection of barrels and different lengths but their two newest barrel offerings are the 7.5″ Pistol Length Gas barrel and a 10.5″ Carbine Length Gas barrel. I’ve listed the details below. Check out the full line of AR-15 barrels at www.FaxonFirearms.com.
