New!! X-Products Performance Based Uppers for Your AR-15

Posted on October 16th, 2014 by ar15news

X Products is best known for their awesome drum mags. They make drum mags in 9mm, 5.56 and .308 for multiple different types of rifles. Recently they started venturing into the AR-15 Complete Upper market. They’re offering complete uppers (minus BCG and Charging Handle) using high quality components at an extremely affordable price point. Right now they have 5 different upper receiver groups (such as the ones shown below) in-stock in 5.56 or 300BLK with a Fortis REV rail at the ridiculous price of just $450. Read the details and check out the pics below. 

At X Products we believe in “Specification Driven” performance systems that are built to achieve the best results when paired with proper ammo and components. We use components that interact with each other, have modular features and work with Mil Standard parts. This is done so the end user can easily work on their firearm using Mil Standard wrenches and off the shelf tools so they can familiar with their firearm without having to contact a gunsmith when there is a problem, or when they want to change parts.

X Products 16.1 300 BLK Lawman 12 Rail Black X Products 16.1 300 BLK Lawman 12 Rail BlackX Products 16.1 5.56x45 Lawman 14 Rail

Our line of enhanced uppers all have 4140 chrome-moly salt bath nitride or 416 stainless steel barrels that are easily good for 10,000 rounds of continuous accuracy (unless specified otherwise), and work on a free float rail system manufactured by Fortis that is light weight, durable, modular, and mounted to a mil standard barrel nut. Our uppers are hammer forged by Anchor Harbor on 7075-T6 aluminum and machined to exact M4 tolerances including feed ramps and rail markings for locating optics. Each upper is discretely marked with our manufacturing information and LOT number to ensure quality control. We offer both fixed gas systems and adjustable gas systems, so you can either by a gun for regular use or suppressed use. We only use clamp on gas systems as they are rigid and easy to remove with an alan head wrench. Each gas system is fitted with a WMD stainless steel salt bath nitride gas tube that is black limiting appearance and offers improved lubricity fighting against carbon build up. All uppers include a forward assist, barrel nut, barrel, gas system, and forend rail. We do not include a flash brake unless specified at bottom of page, bolt and carrier group (these will work with any mil standard bolt and charging handle). Available in Cerakote ™ FDE or black anodizing, all uppers include X Products no-hassle lifetime warranty.

You can take a look at the entire line of X Products Performance Based Uppers and make a purchase at www.XProducts.com.

NEW!! Faxon Firearms 18″ .308 AR-10 Stainless Steel Heavy Barrel

Posted on September 26th, 2014 by ar15news

Faxon Firearms has been teasing all of us with the possibility of a .308 version of their ARAK-21 upper. Just yesterday they came one step closer to what we’ve all been waiting for by revealing their new 18″ .308 AR-10 Stainless Steel Heavy Profile Barrel. While this barrel isn’t the same as what would be used in a .308 ARAK-21, it shows they are working on .308 components right now. As I predicted at the beginning of the year, this has been a huge year for the AR-10. So many companies have released .308 receiver sets, barrels, rails, etc. and it only makes sense to cap it off with Faxon Firearms. As with all Faxon Firearms barrels, the 18″ .308 Stainless Steel barrel is a very nicely made barrel that won’t break the bank. (20″ fluted and 18″ medium profile 4150 barrel pre-orders coming soon) You can see the details below as well as a couple pictures of the new barrel.

NEW!! Leitner-Wise Manufacturing eSights

Posted on September 23rd, 2014 by ar15news

Paul Leitner-Wise of Leitner-Wise Manufacturing is always thinking. Even when most of us are sleeping, he’s thinking. Lately he’s been rethinking the whole concept of BUIS or “Back Up Iron Sights”. One of the thing he mentions is how the increase in use of high quality red dots has decreased the need for complicated, adjustable BUIS. I’ll admit to being guilty of building a few rifles where I didn’t even install a set of BUIS simply because the optics we use now are so reliable and the BUIS are expensive for something I probably won’t use very much. This is just some of the reasoning behind the eSights that Leitner-Wise Manufacturing will be introducing soon. The new eSights will be a simple metal flip up sight that requires no adjustments, similar to the way most Pistol sights are not adjustable. Once installed you would take these to the range, note the zero and know that from here on out you would never need to re-zero because they’re not adjustable. I think Paul is really onto something here. 

Leitner-Wise Mfg eSight Rear Sight

Leitner-Wise Mfg eSight Front Sight

Here is an excerpt from the Leitner-Wise Manufacturing blog.

So, burning the midnight oil and fueled with some of Ireland’s finest spirits, I hit upon eSights or “Emergency” sights. A Back Up Iron Sight that is cheap, simple, readily deployable, ruggedly robust, nonfuckupable and stunningly beautiful. These flip-up sights can be deployed in less than a second and because we control the manufacturing tolerances and can ensure that they mount centrally on the Picatinny rail, are completely non-adjustable. Shoot the firearm, note the zero and off you go. At the maximum range you’re ever likely to need to use this system, you’ll hit everything you are aiming at safe in the knowledge that even though you haven’t touched that firearm for months or even years the eSights will always shoot to the same zero.

Machined to our usual high standards from 7075 aluminum billet and hard coat anodized to a matte finish, the eSights are extremely low profile and lightweight yet incredibly robust. When deployed, they flip-up to the standard sight height ensuring compatibility with every other primary sight on the market yet their rail footprint is one of the smallest for back up sights.

The new Leitner-Wise Manufacturing eSights are not available just yet but being that they will be used as OEM sights on the new LWM MkVI Carbine you know they aren’t too far out from production. I’m excited to see these come to market. Be sure to checkout www.Leitner-Wise.com and follow their different social media outlets as well.
