AERO Precision Weekly Deal

Posted on February 19th, 2015 by ar15news

Each week AERO Precision puts out special deal that everyone can take advantage of. I am going to do my best to keep track of these deals each week and give you guys a heads up on them. This weeks deal is pretty simple. They are offering an 18″ .308 Stainless Steel Barrel with a .936″ low profile gas block and rifle length gas tube for only $290. This is definitely a sweet start to a new .308 build which can tend to get pretty pricey. If you’re looking for options that will help you not break the bank, you should take a look at this deal.

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!

Recently Magpul introduced a new version of the super popular MBUS PRO rear sight called the MBUS PRO LR which has a built in elevation adjustment wheel with preset detents at 50 meter increments all the way out to 600 meters.

Normal retail on this sight is $129.95 but thankfully our buddy Eric over at VF Gunrunners is the king of MBUS PRO deals and is running a special pre-order deal on this new sight. VF Gunrunners offers the MBUS PRO LR sight alone for $103.99 with FREE SHIPPING or you combine it with the MBUS PRO Front Sight for just $156.99 with FREE SHIPPING.

NEW!! Seekins Precision 60/90 Ambi Safety Selector

Posted on January 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Seekins Precision is release their new 60/90 Ambi Safety Selector for purchase. The new selector is a modular design that can be disassembled allowing the user to swap the Short and Long lever to whichever side works best for them. The center core of the selector is also very cool in that when inserted into the receiver in one direction it functions as a normal 90 degree selector but flip it over and insert the other end first and it is now a 60 degree short throw selector. The levers will feature the Seekins Precision diamond texture and come in Black, FDE, OD Green, Zombie Green, Red, Blue or Clear Coat Aluminum. Perhaps the most awesome part is that they will have an MSRP of just $39.99. As I mentioned, these are not currently on the Seekins website yet but should be very soon.

NEW!! Rainier Arms REST (Rainier Enhanced Short Throw) Safety

Posted on January 13th, 2015 by ar15news

I saw a sneak peek at these a while back and have been anxiously waiting for them to come out. Rainier Arms has partnered up with Battle Arms Development to come out with their new REST or Rainier Enhanced Short Throw ambi safety selector. The REST features the standard Battle Arms Development BAD-ASS Short Throw ambi safety core with a totally sick set of enhanced levers with the RA “Mountain” logo and a more triangular shape. I’ve already been a massive fan of both the BAD-ASS family of ambi safeties and Rainier Arms in general so these will be the perfect finishing touch to my two all Rainier Arms builds.

Rainier Arms 45 degree REST selector 1Rainier Arms 45 degree REST selector 1Rainier Arms 45 degree REST selector 1

Rainier Arms 45 degree REST selector 1

REST safely with our ambi safety selector. Reduced throw for quicker movement into fire and safety mode.  The angled lever design for a better ergonomic feel.  Short Throw for the SPECIALIZED 45° MARKED AND MODIFIED AR-Style Lower Receiver in Semi Auto. The Levers are detachable and interchangeable on both sides for maximum flexibility and user preference. It is a must have for the Ambidextrous Shooters! Each Retail Package Comes With:

–  (1) SAFETY BAR/AXIS
–  (2) LEVERS – STANDARD – SHORT
–  (2) TORX SCREWS
–  (1) HARDENED STAINLESS STEEL SAFETY DETENT
–  (1) T10 TORX L-Key
–  Precision CNC Machined from Solid Bar Stock Steel!
–  MADE IN U.S.A.

*This selector will NOT fit in the standard/normal AR-Style Lower Receivers without the safety relief cut due to the safety pin/block device on it. Any modification to the safety selector will render the warranty null and void.

Normal retail will be $85 but you can get in on the intro price of just $69.95 with Free Shipping. These are available in both Black and Rainier Arms RED finishes at the links below.
