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.

(Cincinnati, OH) – Faxon Firearms, manufacturers of the ARAK platform rifle system, is pleased to announce the release and shipment to dealers of its STREAMLINE series of handguards.

True to their namesake, the new Streamline handguards are a sleek and low-profile solution for those looking for a slimmer handguard with flexible mounting. Further, the Streamline features an uninterrupted MIL-STD 1913 “Picatinny” rail across the top and 7 facets of M-LOK cuts at the 90 and 45-degree facets. Rail slots are directly engraved with “T” marks during machining to identify accessory placement anodized or if customers opt for custom coatings.

The handguards are released in four lengths, 15”, 13”, 9”, and 7”. The handguard is 100% made in the USA from extruded 6061 aluminum. The handguards are hard-coat anodized black and feature a steel barrel nut. Mounting is extremely simple with common tools and the handguard features alignment tabs to ensure it cannot rotate during extreme use.

We are thrilled to launch our next product line, keeping within our Company Ethos: ‘Quality. Innovation. Service.’ The new Streamline series keeps it simple while delivering incredible performance,” remarked Nathan Schueth, Director of Operations & Sales. “The handguards continue our push to make the best value products for the top and front of Modern Sporting Rifles. When customers think of uppers, think Faxon.”

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!

NEW!! Forged GI Lower from V SEVEN

Posted on October 5th, 2015 by ar15news

If you’re looking for a high quality forged lower for your next build, this Forged GI Lower from V SEVEN might be one to take a look at. They’ve made some weight saving cuts to the receiver in areas that do not effect its strength so its a bit lighter than a normal AR-15 lower but not by much. Those cuts do give it a really nice look though and the extra KG2400 black armor they apply over the anodizing should help it look good for a bit longer too. They are offering a special introductory price as well. Check out the new V7 lower and a bunch of other awesome light weight products at www.VSevenWeaponSystems.com.

KAK Industry Contract Overrun Barrel Blowout

Posted on August 26th, 2015 by ar15news

Have you ever wondered what happens when a manufacturer makes a bunch of product for an OEM client, only to have them not pay their bill? Well, when it happens to KAK they make sure that you the customer get a hookup! This is exactly what happened to our friends at KAK Industry recently and they made sure to let us know so we can tell you.

All of the barrels listed below are 41V50 steel with a Melonite finish for superior durability and corrosion resistance. Typically you would pay $250+ for these barrels but since you get to cut out the middle man and buy directly from the manufacturer, they are blowing them out at $100-110 each. These are NOT BLEM barrels! You can choose from 8.5″, 10.5″ and 16″ 300BLK with 1:8 Twist or a 16″ 5.56 with 1:7 Twist. The 16″ 300BLK with pistol length gas is a cool one for those looking to build a 16″ 300BLK that cycles subs without a can and the 16″ length helps it not be as loud as a shorter barrel.

8.5 300 BLK PISTOL 1:8  –  $100

11.0 5.56 NATO CARBINE 1:9  –  $100
16.0 5.56 NATO CARBINE 1:7  –  $110

I personally have used quite a few KAK Industry barrels over the past few years and they are an extremely good value. Being able to get them for just $100 is a steal! I seriously would recommend picking up a few for future builds.
