New!! 16.5″ Solo LITE KeyMod Handguard from SLR Rifleworks

Posted on April 2nd, 2014 by ar15news

There are tons of AR-15 hand guards on the market. The newest, most popular version would be KeyMod rails with their unique style of mounting accessories and slim/lightweight style. With the most common style of AR-15 features a 16″ barrel, you will typically find most rails in lengths anywhere from 7″ all the way out to 15″. However, there are plenty of with AR’s that have 18″+ barrels on them. For those of you looking for a longer rail option, SLR Rifleworks has a new 16.5″ version of their Solo LITE KeyMod rail that looks awesome.

I do not personally own any SLR Rifleworks rails but I did shoot some photos for them a while back and they are really great feeling rails. The rifle shown above has a 16″ barrel and a Kuuma Comp from Balistic Advantage. I think this would be cool to see on an 18″ or 20″ barreled AR. The craziest part is that this whole 16.5″ rail only weighs 12.5 ounces including the barrel nut and hardware. Another cool feature is the SLR QMod that makes each KeyMod slot double as a QD Sling Mount. That means there are 51 different possible spots to attach your QD Sling. These 16.5″ rails are being anodized as we speak and will be available for purchase soon. Head on over to www.SLRRifleworks.com and check them out for yourself.

NEW!! AR-15 Barrels from Faxon Firearms

Posted on January 7th, 2014 by ar15news

I just happened to run across the Faxon Firearms website yesterday and noticed they added a section for “AR-15 Barrels”. This intrigued me as up until now they have only offered barrels for their amazing ARAK-21 upper. What was even more interesting is the fact that these are priced very competitively. The barrels come in three different configurations. First is a CMV (Chrome Moly Vanadium) Steel 16″ barrel cut in the standard M4 profile, second is a CMV Steel 14.5″ Mid Length profile barrel and last and my favorite is the 416R Stainless Steel 16″ Mid Length Fluted barrel. Take a look at all the details below. The pictures of these barrels are just their computer rendering. I will get you more pics as soon as they are available. Purchase yours at www.FaxonFirearms.com.

NEW!! 5.45×39 16″ Mid Barrel from VooDoo Innovations

Posted on January 1st, 2014 by ar15news

VooDoo Innovations, sister company to Adams Arms, has just introduced a new 5.45×39 16″ AR-15 barrel that looks really nice. It features a mid length gas system and is Melonite coated inside and out. The 5.45×39 round was designed by the Russians some 30-40 years ago and can be found at very affordable prices online at places such as AIM Surplus, etc. I’ve actually been looking into modifying one of my current 5.56×45 AR’s to a 5.45×39 AR because you can find ammo for it at around $.15 per round which is one third of the cost of what most 5.56 ammo is going for right now. All you need is a few 5.45×39 mags, a new barrel (enter VooDoo Innovations) and a new 5.45×39 Bolt. Depending on your volume of shooting the savings could add up very fast. In fact, if you’re paying higher cost for 5.56 and still shooting a lot, you could break even in less than 1,000 rounds. Check out the new VooDoo Innovations 5.45×39 16″ barrel at www.VooDooInnovations.com.

620 Voodoo Innovation 5.45x39 barrelDetails:
-  16″ Barrel
-  .750 Shoulder
-  Mid Length Gas System
-  1:8 Twist
-  Government Contour 4150 CM Melonited
-  Chambered 5.45X39
