**Press Release**

May 26, 2017: The ETS Group is proud to announce the release of their new line of 42 and 43 Glock® clear polymer magazine models. All ETS Glock® 42 and 43 magazine models are single stack and each standard model holds 7 rounds, as opposed to the 6 rounds standard Glock® factory magazines hold. Also available are ETS’s 9 and 12 round versions, an industry first! ETS’s GLK-42-9 and GLK-43-9 models are only .75 inches longer than the standard 7-round magazine and allow for a better grip and control of the handgun. ETS’s clear polymer magazines feature extreme impact resistance so they won’t crack when dropped. The durable construction ensures the feed lips won’t spread when fully loaded and stored.

Right now the AR market is kind of in a slump which sucks for retailers and manufactures but it is kind of awesome for us AR builders. This forces the manufacturers and retailers to bring out new products on a regular basis and those products have to offer more bang for the buck than when the market is at its peak. Case in point are these new QPQ barrels from AIM Surplus. All 3 of the barrels come with a QPQ finish for durability and corrosion resistance AND they include a low profile gas block that has already been drilled and pinned to the barrel which is the best way to make sure you’ve got a bomb proof setup. These are averrable in three different lengths which are 11.5″ Carbine, 16″ Mid and 18″ SPR Rifle and start at just $139.95. Check out the details below.

Its not often that I get a chance to publish a press release for a new product after actually having personal hands on experience with it. However, that is the case with the new Tyrant Designs HALO MiniVert ForeGrip. I have one, have it mounted on one of my SBRs and I can say, it’s awesome!

Tyrant CNC MiniVert 2

They obviously took a lot of time to get the shape of the all metal grip just perfect because it actually feels great in the hand. It also is easy to swap between MLOK and KeyMod by simply swapping out the screws and mounting hardware (you can save yourself $3 if you only want one set of hardware). Initially Rainier Arms got an exclusive intro price on the new HALO MiniVert ForeGrip but they sold out in just 24 hours. Thankfully Tyrant Designs, the maker of the new HALO MiniVert ForeGrip, has some left in stock at the special intro price which you can purchase at the link below. You can also read the new product press release below.

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips has just announced their release of the new HALO Series MiniVert, a vertical forward grip. With dimensions slightly smaller than the average AR-15 vert grip, the MiniVert sports an aggressive looking knurl and well thought out ergonomics. Coupled with the ability to fit directly to MLOK and Keymod rail systems this little grip packs a big punch. With an overall length just shy of 3 inches, Tyrant instead utilized an elongated lip at the bottom allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind or resting the finger the traditional way.

“With all of the positive feedback we have received from reviewers, dealers and social media, we are extremely excited to announce the official release of our HALO Series MiniVert! This concept took months of designing and field testing to make it as comfortable as possible while maintaining our well known aggressive styling. It truly is a vertical grip that can be used in all situations on various platforms to heighten the performance of the operator. We are pleased with how it came out and look forward to seeing it on AR’s everywhere. ”

If you still think Geissele only makes amazing triggers, you need to start thinking differently about Geissele. They have and still do make some of the best rails on the market but over that past few years they have added things like Armorers Tools, Optic Mounts, Charging Handles and now … the Maritime Bolt Catch. Think of the Maritime Bolt Catch as a bolt catch with a larger surface area and more aggressive texture. What this does that other aftermarket bolt catch’s don’t is it extends the controls closer to the index finger of a left handed shooter so they can manipulate the bolt catch with their index finger without taking their hand off the grip.  

Geissele Automatics Maritime Bolt Catch 1

“The Geissele Maritime Bolt Catch is designed with the warfighter in mind and will work with any lower receiver designed to accept a mil-spec M16/M4 Carbine bolt catch. The increased surface area promotes ease of function when locking back the bolt or releasing the bolt after a magazine change. In addition, the extended controls add an increased functionality for left handed shooters who no longer have to break their grip to manipulate the bolt catch. Left handed shooters can easily reach the controls using the index finger of their left hand making magazine changes and locking the bolt back much more fast and efficient. Aggressive checkering covers the surface of the levers giving the Geissele Maritime Bolt Catch a textured surface that enables positive feedback to the shooters hand when being used with gloves or at night. Manufactured from properly heat treated 8620 steel and manganese phosphate coated, the Geissele Maritime Bolt Catch is intended to serve as an enhanced mil-spec replacement and assist in giving our warfighters overmatch capability with the M16/M4 carbine platform.”

Geissele Automatics Maritime Bolt Catch 1

Whether you’re a lefty or righty, there are benefits to be had here and coming from Geissele you know it will be top notch quality. Thankfully the price is extremely competitive with other aftermarket bolt catch’s with an MSRP of just $29. I’ve ordered a couple to try out and you can too at www.Geissele.com.

A while back the guys at Andro Corp Industry ran a short term special on their M4QR 10.5″ Complete Railed Upper that was an awesome deal. At the time I missed it until it was too late. I decided to reach out to Jason at Andro Corp Industries to see if they would extend the deal for us and they were happy to do so. The M4QR complete upper includes an Milsepc Forged Upper complete with M4 Feed Ramps, Forward Assist and Dust Cover, M16 BCG, Charging Handle, 10.5″ 4150 CMV barrel with 1:7 Twist QPQ (Nitride) finish, 7″ 2-piece quad rail, F Marked FSB and A2 Flash Hider. All uppers are test fired prior to shipping to ensure a properly functioning upper. This would be an absolutely awesome start to an inexpensive SBR or AR Pistol build.

Usually this upper sells for $490 plus shipping (see HERE on their website) but they are offering it to AR15NEWS readers for just $345 Shipped!! That includes the complete upper with a 7″ Quad Rail, M16 BCG and Charging Handle. To purchase this upper at that price you have to contact Jason Wilcox direct by emailing him at jason@androcorpind.com. Payment options are PayPal Friends and Family OR Check OR Money Order OR if paying with Credit Card add 4% fee. Florida residents will need to add 6.5% Sales Tax. Happy Shopping!! Special thanks to ACI for letting us in on this exclusive deal.

**AR15NEWS is not compensated in any way for this post. Just another great deal to pass along to our readers.

Saw this sale on Instagram this morning and thought it would be great to share with you guys. One of my favorite things to stock up on is 22lr ammo because I have a few 22lr rifles and handguns that I use to shoot and hunt with the kids. I bought a few thousand rounds of GEMTECH .22lr Subsonic Ammo with the assumption that it would only work with my suppressor but to my surprise their subsonic ammo runs flawlessly suppressed and UNSUPPRESSED in all of my semi auto rifles and handguns. Can’t guarantee it will in yours but I love this stuff. All GEMTECH .22lr ammo is on sale for 22% off and they’ve also reduced the price of the GEMTECH Blast Jacket down to $149.99. Better hurry though because they go back to normal pricing at 9am MST tomorrow (3/31/17).

GEMTECH Flash Sale

*24 HOUR FLASH SALE*

This is the first time we have ever discounted .22 lr ammo and we’re doing it at 22% off for 24 hours only! We’ve temporarily reduced the price of our Blast Jacket from $195 to $149.99 for 24 hours only!

The .22 ammo is optimized for suppressor usage. We put together a heavier bullet, a cleaner powder, a premium lube on the lead round nose projectile gave us consistent velocities and harder hitting performance at subsonic, suppressor-friendly speed.

The GEMTECH Blast Jacket is one of our best-selling accessories that mounts on ALL existing GEMTECH Quickmounts. The Blast Jacket throws the muzzle blast forward away from other shooters on the line and prevents the huge dust cloud we all experience when shooting in the prone. We made this out of pure titanium so it only weighs 3.5oz. and the stainless spring is capable of a million compressions, built to last. It keeps short guns short at 2.55″ overall and is a great addition to anyone’s load out.

We’ve known the guys at Hexmag ever since they first introduced their Hexmag magazines. They are much more than just a magazine manufacturer now as they offer AR Grips, Rail Covers, their recently introduced Series 2 AR Mags, AR-10 Mags and soon Glock mags.

Yesterday I got an email from them letting me know they just opened their new web-store and offered to give all AR15NEWS readers a 10% discount on any order over $20. That can add up really fast when you’re stocking up on mags. This isn’t some affiliate code that we get paid on. Just a special deal for you guys that we wanted to pass on.
