So, we went to work to create a one-of-a-kind custom patterned rifle. We wanted it to be something that would surely stand out, to honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom, and to give the winner something to be proud of. Our designer came up with something quite  unique and incredibly awesome looking! — J. Delgado, CEO of Double D Armory, LTD.

The Double D Armory, Model: SST AR-15 is a tribute to 9-11 and is a unique Commemorative, One-of-a-kind, Limited Edition Rifle. This drawing will be held on September 12, 2015 at Centennial Gun Club’s 2nd Annual Firearms Festival–an event you don’t want to miss!

For Double D Armory and Centennial Gun Club to come together like this speaks wonders about these two awesome organizations. This is going to be one event we can’t miss, and I personally will be flying out to be part of this. I really hope the community comes together on this and helps them reach their goal.” –Chris Sharon – Hope For The Warriors, Director, Outdoors Adventures.

New Rail Coming Soon From SLR Rifleworks

Posted on August 17th, 2015 by ar15news

Its no secret that SLR Rifleworks makes some sick products. They offer one of the largest variety of lengths and styles of any rail manufacturer out there and pretty soon they’ll be offering another rail. This new rail does not have a name yet but will be available both KeyMod and M-LOK. What makes this rail different than the rest of the rails that SLR offers is that it will feature KeyMod and M-LOK mounting slots all of the 45 degree angles as well, not just at the 3, 6 and 9 positions.

The rail in the photos is a 14.87″ rail and will be be offered in many different lengths. The new rail will also feature SLR’s updated barrel nut mounting system which I have found to be pretty awesome on the last two SLR rails I’ve purchased. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available. In the mean time you can check out all things SLR Rifleworks on their website at www.SLRRifleworks.com.

Griffin Armament SN-ACH Ambi Charging Handle with Gas Port

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

The new Griffin Armament SN-ACH or Suppressor Normalized Ambi Configurable Handles are back in-stock. The new SN-ACH ambi charing handle features a gas port on the right side that redirects gas away from the face of the shooter. It also features ambi modular handles that can be easily swapped out for smaller or lager handles. 

Griffin Armament SN-ACH 4

Normally when you shoot an AR-15, the gasses that make your gun function are expelled through the ejection port but during suppressed shooting there are excess gasses and pressure that usually forces gas right into the face of the shooter through the charging handle opening at the rear of the upper. By machining a gas port on the portion of the charging handle that is outside of the receiver, the SN-ACH allows most of those excess gasses to exit away from the shooter.

If you’re looking for an extremely robust ambi charing handle or shoot suppressed and are tired of getting gas to the face, the Griffin Armament SN-ACH is an option to look at. Head on over to www.GriffinArmament.com and snag one before they’re sold out again.

NEW!! Rainier Arms XTC 2.0 Pre-Order / Intro Price

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

Rainier Arms just released the new XTC 2.0 muzzle device which is the newest variation of their original RA XTC. The XTC 2.0 expands on the original versions capabilities with the tuned first port that mitigates the muzzle rise while the extra side port keeps the rifle planted for faster repeated follow up shots. The XTC 2.0 also features compatibility with the coming soon Fortis Mfg Control Blast Shield. The overall look has been refined such as a machined in “RAINIER ARMS” on the bottom of the muzzle device but no other markings making for a very clean looking finish.

RA XTC 2.0 2

I have a few of them in my hands right now and I have to tell you, these things are sexy! Rainier Arms takes great pride in offering some of the nicest components for your AR’s and these show that. You can get in on the pre-sale for the new XTC 2.0 and save 15% but this sale is only for a short time.

There is no code needed for this pre-sale. The 15% has already been applied making the price just $67.95 which is a steal for a very nice muzzle brake. The new Rainier Arms XTC 2.0 for 5.56 can be purchased only at www.RainierArms.com

I know the summer can tend to be slow in many industries including the gun industry but lately the deals have been getting so good you might need to put off those vacation plans for a bit longer to get in on them. For instance, here is a daily deal from Palmetto State Armory. You can get a complete 16″ Mid Length 5.56 MOE Rifle Build Kit including a Magpul MOE Grip, Stock, Trigger Guard and Hand Guard for just $399.99. (This is NOT the PTAC crap they were selling for a while.) All you need is a lower and rear sight and you’ll be in business. If you’re looking to put together an AR on a budget, this kit will get you well on the way. Unfortunately this deal expires on 8/14/15 at 12 noon EST so get on it!
