Get Some!! Bobro LowRider BUIS Are In-Stock and Ready to Ship

Posted on April 20th, 2015 by ar15news

**EDIT:  These are in-stock right now so get ’em while they’re hot!** 4/20/15 2:00PM EST

I received word over the weekend that the new LowRider BUIS from Bobro Engineering are finally nearing their initial release and should be available for purchase VERY soon…as in THIS week. If you haven’t seen or heard of the LowRider BUIS from Bobro, you’ve got to check these out. 

Bobro Engineering Lowrider Sights 2

The Bobro Engineering LowRider sights are designed from the start to be an extremely low profile set of BUIS for a specific purpose. Many Short Barreled Rifle owners have run into an issue with figuring out how to mount a set of BUIS on the upper and still fit their needed Lights, Lasers and Optics. The idea was to make it so that the Rear Sight was so low profile that there was almost no possible way it could interfere with optics and the Front Sight could easily be mounted under the front arm of the optic mount. This keeps them out of the way, but can still be used in the even the primary optic has a failure.

The Bobro LowRider sights are so low profile in the stowed position that you almost don’t notice they are even there unless you are looking for them.

Even though these sights were designed to fill a specific need, they can still be used on a full size rifle in traditional BUIS positions as shown below. The LowRider sights still maintain all of the adjustability of a standard set of BUIS such as Windage and Elevation and lock in place when flipped up. Just press the button on the side to release them and they lay flat.

Rainier Arms has secured the first 50 available sets and has 40 sets available on www.RainierArms.com at $200 and they will sell 10 sets on www.Revolvr.com at $190. These are in-stock right now so get ’em while they’re hot!

NEW!! Tactical Walls – 1410M Wall Clock Discreet Storage

Posted on April 8th, 2015 by ar15news

We’ve shown you many products from Tactical Walls in the past. Tactical Walls started out producing storage compartments disguised as mirrors in a variety of sizes from smaller compartments for handguns and knives to ones large enough for rifles, shotguns, ammo, etc. These have been very popular but some people have asked for options that did not require you to cut into the wall and mount the storage insert between the wall studs. After many hours of development, Tactical Walls introduced their first outside the wall option which was their awesome Tactical Shelves. Never the company to sit back and relax, they quickly started designing their second outside the wall product, the Tactical Wall Clock. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 1

The technical name for this product is the 1410M Tactical Wall Clock. What that means is you get a 14″ wide by 10″ tall storage compartment with a “M”agnetic mount technology that is hidden inside of a wall clock. The Wall Clock is fully functional and mounts just as you would any other large wall clock. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 2

The Tactical Wall Clock is designed to give you immediate access to whatever you decide to keep inside of it without it being in plain sight. In the event you need your gun, knife, keys, stone…whatever, you just press on the 12 o’clock portion of the clock face and it tilts out allowing you to reach inside and remove your items. The face of the clock can also be completely and quickly removed making it easy to put the items back inside. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 2

It is important to point out that the Tactical Wall Clock is not designed to be used as a Safe or to think that kids can not get into it if not placed out of their reach. Most of Tactical Walls products have locks on them but the Tactical Wall Clock does not. I wouldn’t let that deter you though. Because it is a wall clock it is perfectly normal to have it placed above eye level which, depending on furniture, should keep it out of the reach of young ones. Check out the video demonstration below. 

Tactical Walls Tactical Wall Clock 4

I think a wall clock is an awesome way to discreetly store items, up out of reach of children but still within arms reach if you need something in a hurry. You never know when you may encounter a threat in your own home or business and realize your much further away from your weapon than you should be OR maybe during a scuffle with an intruder you are disarmed and need to find an alternate weapon. Its also a great option for renters who don’t want to cut into the walls of their apartment  etc. Whatever the reason may be, Tactical Walls products are a great answer for those situations. Check them out at www.TacticalWalls.com.

Battle Arms Development has just introduced the newest version of their SaberTube and Lightweight Butt Stock combo which uses an included QD End Plate. The first version of the SaberTube and Lightweight Butt Stock did not allow the use of an End Plate and was designed for receivers that had the rear takedown pin detent hole threaded for a set screw. This new version has been redesigned to allow the use of the included QD End Plate and will work on any normal AR-15 lower receiver. This kit includes the SaberTube, BAD-LBS (Lightweight Butt Stock) and a CNC Machined 7075T6 QD End Plate and is available for one week at an Intro Price of $159.95 only at www.REVOLVR.com.

Great Deal!! – AIM Surplus Nickel Boron .308 BCG

Posted on February 16th, 2015 by ar15news

The last year has seen an explosion of interest in building big bore AR’s, especially the AR-10/.308. Things like .308 receiver sets and barrels are not only a lot more readily available but also much more affordable than they ever have been before. Unfortunately some smaller parts like Bolt Carrier Groups are still not so easy to find and can cost quite a bit. This weekend I happened to run across the AIM Surplus Nickel Boron .308/7.62×51 BCG and was surprised to see that not only does it look like a very high quality BCG but they are selling it for just $179.95 with FREE SHIPPING in the lower 48 States. I just finished up my second .308 build over the weekend and might need to pick up one of these BCGs for the next .308 build.

AIM Surplus NiB 308 BCG

AIM .308/7.62×51 Caliber BDG Nickel Boron Bolt Carrier Groups. A great BCG at an even better price! We are having these built to our exacting Standards. The Bolt is shot peened and manufactured out of 9310 Tool Steel with a 4140 Machined Extractor. The Carrier is the more common DPMS pattern with a Nickel Boron finish for easier cleaning and provides a slicker surface. The Gas Key is Hardened to USGI Specifications and fastened to the carrier using Grade 8 Hardware, and then properly staked. More information below.

Assembly

The assembly requirements for 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 i used to attach the gas key, followed by properly staking per spec.  When installing the extractor to the bolt, both the extractor buffer and the crane-o-ring are inserted with the spring.  Both are present to insure proper ejection 100% of the time.  Then high temperature grease is app 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 customers…PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA!

NEW!! Fortis REV II KeyMod 12″ Handguard

Posted on January 7th, 2015 by ar15news

For a few months we’ve heard quiet rumblings about a new version of the very popular Fortis REV rail. Just yesterday those rumors were proven true when Fortis Mfg released the new REV II KeyMod 12″ handguard which removes the lower 1913 Picatinny rail section as well as the small forward side rail sections that are found on the original REV rail. Not only does this make the REV II even lighter than the original REV but also makes it more of a tubular style handguard with KeyMod at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with a solid 1913 Picatinny section at 12 o’clock. I really think Fortis hit the nail on the head with this design and can’t wait to get my hands on one.

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’m really excited to give these new Magpul MBUS PRO Offset Sights a try. I did the same thing with the standard MBUS PRO sights and now I have like 5 sets. :) As far as I can tell these are in-stock and ready to go now at www.Magpul.com at just $189.90 for a front and rear set. I’ll race you over there to see who can get a set faster.

Posted on November 18th, 2014 by ar15news

We’ve shared a few sneak peeks of the new Fortis Manufacturing billet upper receiver and today we get to announce that they are officially available for purchase. As with most Fortis Manufacturing products they are offering an introductory price on this first run. The intro price is available through Revolvr which is an awesome firearms friendly market place. I’ve been buying stuff on there for months and love not having to use PayPal like on other sites.

The new 7075-T6 Fortis billet upper comes complete with the Dust Cover and Forward Assist already installed and features some really cool machining cuts around the Forward Assist and Shell Deflector areas as well as on the entire opposite side. One thing to note is that the Fortis billet upper will work with basically any rail including ones with Anti-Rotation Tabs which is typically a problem with billet uppers. Fortis did a great job removing all sharp edges on this thing and the finish is great. The biggest plus is the value. Right now you can purchase the new Fortis Billet Upper for just $179 with FREE SHIPPING at www.Revolvr.com. Now that’s a deal!

The Fortis Billet Upper is a precision piece, machined from Billet 7075 T6 aluminum. Like our other products, we designed this upper with function as well as form in mind. We shaved off the ounces where we could without sacrificing rigidity or strength. The end result is increased function and performance with the design aesthetics that we’re known for. See for yourself and you’ll see and feel the difference with our products.
