Cross Machine Tool Phosphate, Nitride and NiB M16 BCGs

Posted on July 20th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve seen a lot of “random” price bumps lately one products including BCGs, magazines, etc. so any time I can I try to support companies that are trying to keep pricing normal even during times where stuff is moving a lot faster than it has been. My friends at Cross Machine Tool didn’t tell me this but I just saw that they got a restock on their very nice M16 BCGs in Phosphate, Nitride and Nickel Boron finishes. On top of offering them at a great price they are also offering Free Shipping. Not sure how long these will be in-stock so hurry up and snag one for your next build.

NEW – AIM AR/M16 .223/5.56/.300 BLACKOUT NIB EXO MPI BCG

Posted on July 6th, 2016 by ar15news

I’m definitely going to have to pick up a few of these new NIB EXO BCG’s from AIM Surplus. The NIB EXO coating is simply amazing and well worth the extra money over a standard NIB finish. Combine the NIB EXO finish with the awesome specs of this BCG and this should be a real winner. I already have a few AIM Surplus BCG’s and they do a great job of offering a high quality product at a very good price point. This new BCG is made right here in the USA with a Lifetime Warranty and just $119.95 shipped.

UCT’S EXCLUSIVE EXO TECHNOLOGY
EXO Technology creates a competitive advantage for all kinds of components, because treated parts run dramatically longer and more accurately with less maintenance. Further, EXO greatly enhances heat dissipation, so treated products run far cooler than non-treated parts. The EXO process is permanent, lasting for the entire lifespan of treated parts. A patented, nodular nickel-boron (NiB) surface treatment, EXO nucleates on the surface atoms of metals, becoming part of the metal rather than merely applied to the outside. In addition, the treated surface becomes harder than the substrate itself, eliminating the cost, weight and degradation problems of conventional hardened metals. EXO Technology is featured in firearms, weapons and support systems used by the U.S. military and law enforcement and security agencies. EXO Technology is appropriate for virtually any application where reduced friction, extended service life, enhanced performance and lower maintenance are desirable.

TBRC “A Salt Rifle” Forged Lower Receiver

Posted on June 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

If you’ve been watching any news coverage regarding gun control legislation the favorite term used is “Assault Weapon” or “Assault Rifle”, and both terms have nothing to do with the AR-15. Many people, even AR owners think that the “AR” in AR-15 refers to the term “Assault Rifle” but it actually refers to “Armalite Rifle”. To poke fun at this commonly misused term, Texas Black Rifle Company has introduced their new “A Salt Rifle” forged lower with a comical roll mark and selector markings. Check out the images and details below. The website says this is a limited run so snag one quick if you’re interested.

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.
