2A Armament has introduced a brand new .22lr Conversion Bolt Carrier for your AR. This is a drop-in conversion for your .223/5.56 chambered AR that will allow you to shoot .22lr ammo though it. This is not a new idea but what is new is having a company like 2A Armament, a company that is known for top of the line products, designing and producing this product and NOT settling for a product that doesn’t work well. I talked to my contact at 2A Armament about the product and they said even though .22lr ammo is finicky, their ultimate goal is to make this product run with all types of ammo. Right now, Rainier Arms has the exclusive launch for the 2A Armament .22lr Conversion Bolt Carrier where they are including a FREE (1) 22LR magazine with each Conversion Bolt Carrier purchased (while supplies last).  

New for 2018 is 2A Armaments AR15 22LR product line.  The 2A Armament 22LR product line is engineered for the highest quality, most reliable AR 22LR platform on the market.

This ultra lightweight AR 22LR Conversion Bolt Carrier is perfect for those who already have an AR15 and just want a drop-in replacement to be able to fire 22LR through their existing AR15 rifle.  This conversion bolt carrier incorporates precision machined parts, each with carefully selected materials for its function. This patent-pending design features a titanium bolt, stainless steel barrel collar with 5.56mm chamber plug and other parts, dual balanced reciprocating springs, and a polymer buffer providing a very lightweight and reliable option.  Please see “22LR Compatibility” link for the latest updates on any accessory compatibility notices.

The original Battle Arms Development Enhanced Bolt Catch, also known as the BAD-EBC, is a very popular aftermarket option for upgrading the Bolt Catch on an AR-15. Being that it was made from 8620 billet steel it also came with a $42 price tag. Battle Arms Development wanted to make a more affordable version of this popular item so they created the new BAD-EBC-IC. The “IC” stands for Investment Cast which is a much more budget conscious way of producing the Enhanced Bolt Catch.

**Press Release**

Designed to teach the thumbs forward grip, XTech Tactical releases the PTG (Pistol Training Gloves)

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves

Mesa, AZ- XTech Tactical, makers of the adjustable angle ATG AR Grip and their VP9 & P30 magazines and extensions announced today the release of their PTG (Pistol Training Gloves). The patent pending gloves use hook and loop to reinforce the “thumbs forward grip”.  

Check out this quick video!

The Pistol Training Glove, or PTG from XTech Tactical teaches & reinforces the “thumbs forward” grip technique used by military, law enforcement, and professional shooters. With its grip interlock technology, the PTG’s hook and loop fasteners engage only when your hands are in the correct position.  The use of this training tool will develop habits and muscle memory that build shooting skills and confidence.

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves 3

The gloves are breathable, comfortable and made from high end materials. They come in a full range of sizes ranging from XS-L to meet almost any trainee’s needs. The gloves are fully ambidextrous and address a problem we can all relate to. When introducing a beginner pistol shooter to the thumbs forward grip it is often quickly forgotten. And without the instructor by the trainee’s side and prior to muscle memory being established, the trainee becomes unsure of themselves.  Also, in a training environment when handling a live weapon for the first time the trainee often forgets the grip and the instructor is forced to correct them, which often requires physical contact.  This can create a dangerous situation but at a minimum affects the confidence of the trainee.  With the gloves, you will find the grip will no longer need to be a major focus of training and they assist in building confidence and a more enjoyable experience!

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves

The gloves are simple to use and are an excellent tool in your range bag no matter if you are a beginner, instructor, or just act as a 2nd Amendment Ambassador and introducing others to shooting pistols!

MSRP is $34.95. They can be purchased at www.xtechtactical.com. Dealer pricing, and special NRA instructor pricing is available.  Dealer and Instructor inquiries please contact jeremy@xtechtactical.com

Pantheon Arms is well known for their awesome upgrades to the Dolos Quick Change Barrel System and now they’ve introduced a brand new product called the Kentri Short Buffer System for AR-15s that will work with both rifle caliber and pistol caliber builds. This should be perfect for one of those super compact AR Pistol “Truck Gun” “Backpack Gun” Builds.

Dolos KENTRI AR15 Short Buffer System

The new Kentri Short Buffer System is just 3.5″ long and features a floating guide rod to keep everything aligned in the buffer, doesn’t require a proprietary BCG,  supports the SB Tactical Braces and Shockwave Blade and  at just $55 is less than 1/3 the price of most other Short Buffer Systems on the market. 

So far, after a quick Google search, it looks like Vision Defense LLC (they’re the ones who tagged me on Instagram about this new product) is the only company to have these instock  and listed on their website so you might want to check them out. They’re listed at $55.
