Griffin AR15 rail kits include rail panels, gas block assemblies, and all tools and hardware needed for a turnkey rail system.

The design objective for the Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ rails were to provide a slim, ultralight M-LOK rail, with increased rigidity over current similar market options.

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 3

“We had been looking at the market for a while and noticed that there were two types of rails essentially. Rails that were beefy and strong, and rails that were slim and unfortunately weaker. We wanted to combine the desirable attributes of both category products into one optimal rail system.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on, “The final design resulted in 70% more rigidity than current similar market slim rails. This is important for those who need to use IR lasers as armed professionals or for hunting. There are a lot of great options now in IR laser aimer products that have solid mounting and solid bodies and we wanted to make a slim rail that provided industry leading point of aim / point of impact for those aimers.”

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 1

Low-Pro RIGID™ rails feature a 7075 aluminum barrel nut which can be installed with the included Griffin Armorers Wrench. The mounting is done with included shims and flat head cap screws for an ultra-flush and low profile mating to the receiver. 17-4 stainless QD flush cups are included which thread into the barrel nut through holes in the rail.  

The kits include the Griffin Primo Gas Block™, a 416R stainless .750” ID gas block which can be set screwed in place and / or pinned.

Additionally, the rail kits include the Griffin RAIL SHIELD™ panels as standard equipment. This 4 piece kit provides a 4.6” length surface for heat protection and griping. The user can choose to use the flat bottom panel or angled grip panel for enhanced recoil control.

As an avid AR owner/builder I have lots of experience piecing together rifles and the tools that are required to do that. I’ve used pretty much everything from the super cheap to pretty pricey when it comes to Armorer’s Tools. Most of your “inexpensive” Armorer’s Tools are, for the most part, made for the AR owner who will build a rifle once or twice a year and are prone to marring you rifle parts and tend to break during use. Some just flat out don’t work as advertised and are a “jack of all, master of none” type of design. I’m always looking out for the next must have armorer’s tools. Geissele Automatics did it with their Reaction Rod and now it looks like Fire 4 Effect has done it with their new F4E AWS (Armorer’s Wrench Set). 

Instead of one wrench that is supposed to do everything, the F4E AWS consists of 3 separate wrenches including a Barrel Nut Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench. This design made it so the portion of the wrench you are trying to use is positioned in the center with an extended handle on both ends of the wrench. On each of those handles are cutouts for use with a torque wrench and the suggested torque settings are actually etched on. The Castle Nut Wrench has an amazing design to it that doesn’t allow it to tear up your castle nut or buffer tube and the Barrel Nut Wrench features 9 points of contact that are all replaceable if one gets bent. Just seems like an extremely well thought out set of wrenches. Check out the pics, video and details below. 

NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT!

The Fire 4 Effect team is proud to announce the F4E Armorers Wrench Set! Developed by Master Gunsmith and former Army Marksmanship Unit NCOIC Matt Haidu the Armorers Wrench Set or AWS consists of a Barrel Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench.

Fire 4 Effect AWS Armorers Wrench Set

Manufactured from water jet cut mild steel that has been CNC milled, laser engraved with a custom cerakote finish the AWS is designed to provide a lifetime of use for the AR15 armorer. Each wrench has a life time warranty.

Key Features:
———
The Barrel Nut Wrench provides 9 points of contact on the barrel nut and features hardened steel roll pins which can be easily replaced by the individual armorer.
———
The Castle Nut Wrench uses recessed castle nut lugs for improved lock up during assembly and disassembly. The Castle Nut Wrench also doubles as a Receiver Extension / buffer tube wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench features a alignment groove to assist armorers while indexing muzzle devices.
———
Torque wrench attachment points have the corrected torque wrench calculation engraved on the Muzzle Device Wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench also features shoulder inlets to accommodate crush washer expansion.
———
All wrenches incorporate 2 handles for balanced manual torque application during assembly or reassembly.

PROUDLY MADE IN TEXAS!

Individual Wrench Price:
– Barrel Nut Wrench: $129.99
– Castle Nut Wrench: $119.99
– Muzzle Device Wrench: $79.99
– Complete AWS Price: $300.00

If you are a serious AR build, not just a once a year builder, you will definitely need to get your hands on a set of these awesome wrenches. Fire-4-Effect offers a 10% MIL/LE discount with appropriate credentials. You can order your AWS at www.fire-4-effect.com

There are quite a few “PDW” style stocks on the market for the AR-15 right now. Most, if not all of them, use a shorter buffer tube setup with a modified buffer and spring to shorten the overall length of the stock which is what makes them great for use on a PDW (Personal Defense Weapon). Unfortunately, most of the PDW stocks on the market add multiple steps to disassemble the weapon and in some cases even require that you use a specific BCG. There are very few options out there that are truly drop-in setups that allow you to “shotgun” your upper and use any BCG you want. The new X Products R.O.C. (Rapid Operation Carbine) PDW Stock does just that allowing you to use any BCG you want “shotgun” your upper with out removing the front pivot pin or locking the buffer back. A couple of additional things to note is that it weights just 17.6 ounces and can be used on 9mm ARs, Direct Impingement and Piston systems. What’s even crazier…the price point is $350 with an intro price of just $289.95.

If you remember back to the beginning of 2015 we predicted that the .308 AR market was going to explode and it absolutely did. The increase in demand for the AR-10 has brought great new products at amazing prices from many companies and that definitely includes Faxon Firearms. Faxon just added 3 more barrels to their line of .308 barrels bringing the total to 12 different models. These new barrels all feature 5R rifling vs the traditional rifling of the other .308 barrels Faxon offers and are available in 3 different models, all with a QPQ (Nitride, Melonite, same thing) finish.

The three new models are: 
16″ .308 – 4150 – Medium Taper – Mid Gas – QPQ 
18″ .308 – 4150 – Medium Taper – Mid Gas – QPQ 
18″ .308 – 416-R – Heavy Fluted – Mid Gas – QPQ

These new barrels range in price from $269 to $329 and are available right now for both customers and dealers at www.FaxonFirearms.com

ODIN Works just announced their extremely popular 300BLK barrels are back in stock. ODIN Works offers a 10.5″ and 16.1″ 300BLK barrel that are made from 416R Stainless Steel, Hand Lapped, Button Rifled with a 1:8 Twist and are Sub-MOA Guaranteed (I have a 10.5″ 5.56 and can attest these things shoot lasers!). Both barrels have M4 Feedramps and a nice satin finish.

ODIN Works 10.5 300BLK 1ODIN Works 16.1 300BLK 1

Another nice thing that ODIN Works does is include a low profile gas block with every barrel. These gas blocks have a small alignment mark  on the back that you sync up with a line on the barrel for perfect gas block alignment first time. 

ODIN Works Barrels

ODIN Works barrels seem to be a very well kept secret. Those that have tried them all say the same thing…”These things are awesome.” If you’re looking to sling some Sub-MOA 300BLK without breaking the bank, these are hard to pass up. They also have a full line of Sub-MOA guaranteed .223 Wylde barrels and 6.5 Grendel barrels too.

KAK Industry just released info on their new Dimpled 18″ 5.56 Melonite barrels. These new barrels are available in both Mid or Rifle length gas and have a really nice looking dimpled pattern from the Gas Block back. The dimples not only look really cool, they also add more surface area for faster cooling and help reduce the weight of the heavier profile barrel. The Melonite treatment protects agains corrosion, gives you a slick bore and is a very durable finish. Take a look at these barrels below, then head on over to www.KAKIndustry.com to snag one for yourself.

Kaiser Shooting Products has just introduced their new TI-7 Titanium Bolt Carrier Group. Not only does this look like a really nice BCG but it comes at a great price point. For those who have not looked at Titanium BCGs, most are priced at $325+ and go up into the $500-600 with ease. The KSP TI-7 BCG is being offered at an intro price of just $275 Shipped making it much more affordable and in line with other high end AR-15 BCGs. The Bolt itself is made of Carpenter 158 steel. The carrier itself is Titanium and has a machined Gas Key (not MIM) for increased strength. The entire BCG is DLC coated as well. If you are looking for a lightweight BCG, this might be a great way to go. Check them out at www.KaiserUS.com.

Law Tactical just released specs on their updated version of the Gen3 AR Folding Stock Adapter, called the Gen3-M. The Gen3 was released about a year ago and incorporated quite a few features based on user input such as a lower hinge to keep from racking your knuckles on it while using the charging handle. This new Gen3-M version incorporates some new features that should make this the best one yet.

The new Gen3-M looks very similar to the Gen3 but is now being made at a highly proficient aerospace machine shop, uses a standard milspec buffer retaining pin and finished with Ionbond DLC (Diamond Like Carbon). The most important part of the update is that these should be more readily available with support from the new machine shop that is producing them. Law Tactical’s Folding Stock Adapters have always been in high demand but they just couldn’t make them fast enough.

I know some will want to complain about the $30 increase in price but that was the best they could do when switching machine shops and making these upgrades too. Not to mention they refuse to have them made over seas for a cheaper price which I think is commendable. I personally own 2 Gen2 folding stock adapters and one of their previous version Gen3 adapters and they are worth every penny. One is attached to an 18″ SPR and the other two are attached to AR Pistols which I can legally transport in my vehicle with my CPL. Being able to make my AR’s more compact for storage or discreet transport is not something I need to do on all of them but it is great to have that option on a few. If you need one, here is a list of dealers who will or already do have them in-stock.

– Rainier Arms
– Weapons Outfitters
– Harris Tactical
– F3tactical

– S.O.B. Tactical
– Carolinas First Defense
– GSS Gear
– Griffin Industries

Our friends at KAK Industry have introduced a new 300BLK barrel that is going to be awesome for those of you who either want to build a super short 300BLK PDW style upper or for those looking to run a suppressed 300BLK upper but keep it nice and short for maneuverability. This 6.25″ Stainless Steel 300BLK barrel features a 1:7 twist and 5R rifling. Soon KAK will offer a complete upper using this barrel, an SLR Rifleworks rail and Royal Arms 300BLK Suppressor but wanted to offer the barrel as a stand alone piece while they wait for the rest of the components. I personally own quite a few different KAK Industry barrels and components and have had nothing but fantastic results with them. If you’re looking to build a super short 300BLK upper, be sure to give KAK’s 6.25″ barrel a look.

The new LANTAC E-BCG is now available for purchase. Don’t confuse this with any old BCG. If you want a seriously no-corners-cut BCG for that dream rifle you just built, then you need to check this thing out. They have basically tuned every part of this BCG that could improve function and reliability. It even features forward angled gas ports which are enlarged to help reduce the “gas in the face” issue most people experience when shooting suppressed. Check out the pics and details below. 

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 1

M16 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time. Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a shot peened bolt manufactured from Carpenter 158 and Magnetically Particle Inspected. The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UTC EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings. This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficent of .04 and surface hardness of 68-72 Rockwell C.

The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier. This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse. In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 2 copy

The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s lock position within the upper and makes it more consistent, resulting in an accuracy improvement. All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat and the bore of the carrier and gas key have been hard chrome lined for the best possible wear resistance.

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 3 copy

All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360 patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx). The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver. The BCG’s 11.7oz weight helps to increase lock time and smoother operation. Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

LMT recently introduced their new DMR stocks. Many people have said “They’re just copying the Magpul PRS”, etc but in actuality they’ve made it possible for the 99% of owners who currently have a collapsible stock on their AR to add upgrade to precision style stock similar to a PRS but without the need to change over to a rifle buffer tube, spring and buffer. You can literally take off your collapsible stock, slip on the new LMT DRM stock and have the feel of a fixed precision rifle stock. This saves you the cost and time of swapping receiver extensions and would be pretty awesome for someone who has a single lower receiver but multiple uppers such as an SBR upper and an SPR upper. Weapon Outfitters has the 5.56 version available in-stock right now and at about $30 cheaper than other retailers that I’ve seen. Check out the pics and details below then head on over to www.WeaponOutfitters.com to purchase one for yourself.
