NEW!! LANTAC BMD (Blast Mitigation Device)

Posted on December 12th, 2014 by ar15news

LANTAC has just joined the long list of companies who are offering a muzzle device shroud that redirects the blast associated with using a muzzle brake. I like that LANTAC took the design at least one step further and created openings on the top of the shroud that correspond to the top ports of the LANTAC Dragon brake which allows the brake to fight muzzle rise even while the shroud is installed. They’ve also designed a different QD attachment system as well. Probably the most notable feature is the fact that it works with the LANTAC Dragon which is widely considered one of the best brakes on the market. Also shown in these pictures is there new SPADA rail. These products will be available early 2015.

LANTAC BMD, Blast Mitigation Device. There have been many derivatives of the first blast shield designed by Simplistic Shooting Solutions and or Kineti Tech years ago. Including QD attachment systems and diffuser holes as seen in Ferfrans and the Spikes Tactical HVS designs. With Gemtech, Griffin and MMC also fielding good products. The BMD is our take on this type of device, with a few changes from our original concept that was tabled at the time we designed our Dragon brake.

LANTAC BMD

One of the most important features for us was vertical porting that would allow the Dragon brake to continue to shoot as efficiently as it does without compromise. The other was gas flow direction and turbulence. Internally the BMD features an angled shoulder that allows gas to flow smoothly into the diffuser sections of the outer cylinder and also across the many teeth at the opening. The diffuser holes are also strategically position at the sides and top of the BMD but NOT the bottom, this also assist in muzzle climb management, its the same principle as found in the A2 compensator.

The BMD is also retained by 2 spring loaded catches on either side, so can be ‘stripped’ forward from the brake very quickly if required.

LANTAC has been releasing a ton of new products lately and they seem to just keep getting better and better. Be sure to check out the LANTAC Facebook page as well as their website www.LANTAC-USA.com for a complete list of LANTAC products.

Save Big with ADM’s Aimpoint T-2 Optic/Mount Combo Deals

Posted on December 10th, 2014 by ar15news

American Defense Mfg let us know yesterday that they just added the new Aimpoint T-2 Optic and Mount combos to their website. This is great news for a few reasons. One, people have been itching to get their hands on the new T-2 red dot ever since it was introduced a while back. Two, whenever ADM offers “Optic/Mount” packages everybody WINS! The way it always works is you are basically gonna get an American Defense Mfg mount for FREE or close to it. For example, the cost of the T-1/T-2 mount is around $100 but with the combo, you’re saving almost $160. That means you’re not only getting a FREE QD mount but also saving on the optic as well. Now that’s a deal. If anyone wants to get me this combo for Christmas…I won’t be mad. :)

Purchase your new Aimpoint T-2 optic with your choice of Co-Witness, Low or SOCOM height mounts at www.ADM-MFG.com.

Christmas Sale Starts NOW at TacStrike Steel Targets

Posted on December 10th, 2014 by ar15news

I just noticed that TacStrike has recently started their annual Christmas Sale. I can say from experience that there really is nothing quite like shooting steel and TacStrike produces a wide variety of what are considered some of the best Steel Targets and Target Stands in the shooting industry. Now you have a chance to save big time on a great selection of their most popular products. I’ve listed some of my personal favorites that I recommend you check out as well.

My Recommendations
–  One of my personal favorite targets I use is a combination of the Arched Frame Target Carrier and the Dropped Steel Swinger. I bought this setup on their last Christmas sale and have been abusing the heck out of it. The swinging plate really gets moving as you shoot it which helps you work on timing your shots, etc and is an inexpensive way to shoot steel. 

-  The BMI or Body Mass Index dual plate swinger is next on my list. Basically it takes the Dropped Steel Swinger that I mentioned above to the next level adding a larger steel “Torso” that swings independently creating two different moving targets. Add the Arched Frame Target Carrier and you’ve got an awesome setup.

-  If you want what the big boys are using at training courses, etc. the 1/4 Scale Steel Target System is what you need. These things are awesome and both the Ultra Light and Standard versions are on sale right now. Definitely worth checking out.

NEW!! CMMG Mk47 MUTANT 7.62×39 Rifle

Posted on December 5th, 2014 by ar15news

We were still finishing up our Cyber Monday deals when this new rifle was announced early this week but we didn’t want to forget to show it to you guys. I have one 762×39 rifle now and the only thing I wish was different is that it uses 762×39 AR mags instead of AK mags. The new Mk47 MUTANT rifle from CMMG not only uses any AK mag but also features a beefed up BCG based off the AR-10 design. If this interest you, check out the pics and details below.

CMMG MK47 1

Fayette, MO (Dec. 1, 2014)—CMMG Inc. today announced the release of the Mk47 MUTANT – an all-new rifle platform that combines the accuracy of the modern sporting rifle and relentless AK47-like reliability with the legendary 7.62x39mm caliber.

CMMG MK47 1

Engineered from 7075-T6 billet aluminum, the Mk47 MUTANT features a uniquely designed upper and lower receiver built to manage the dimensions and pressures of the 7.62x39mm tapered cartridge all while keeping the weight of the rifle at a minimum.  Remarkably, the Mk47 MUTANT (while unloaded) weighs just over seven pounds.

The Mk47 MUTANT utilizes a unique bolt carrier group derived from the massive AR10 group, which aside from being shortened to a length of eight inches, retains all of the material on the bolt face for added durability and strength.

CMMG MK47 1

The lower receiver is designed to accept existing AK magazines, which are widely available, inexpensive and extremely reliable. A standard ambidextrous hook and latch system makes reloading fast and intuitive. The rifle comes with one Magpul PMAG® 30-round AK/AKM MOE® 7.62×39 Magazine.

CMMG MK47 1

A full-length Picatinny rail runs atop the Mk47, making it easy to mount your preferred sights or optics. CMMG’s RKM KeyMod™ Hand Guard is exceptionally light and ergonomic. It also gives users the freedom to mount a wide array of accessories using the KeyMod slots found in the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. For accessories that are not yet KeyMod compatible, CMMG offers 5-slot accessory rails.

The Mk47 sports a 16.1” free floated barrel with a 1:10 twist and runs on the proven carbine-length direct impingement gas system. By effectively maximizing the accuracy and harnessing the knockdown power of the 7.62x39mm, the Mk47 is an ideal rifle for a variety of sporting and defense applications.

Now Available – LANTAC E-BCG (Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group)

Posted on December 5th, 2014 by ar15news

The new LANTAC E-BCG is now available for pre-order. Don’t confuse this with any old BCG. If you want a seriously no-corners-cut BCG for that dream rifle you just built, then you need to check this thing out. They have basically tuned every part of this BCG that could improve function and reliability. It even features forward angled gas ports which are enlarged to help reduce the “gas in the face” issue most people experience when shooting suppressed. Check out the pics and details below. 

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 1

M16 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time. Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a shot peened bolt manufactured from Carpenter 158 and Magnetically Particle Inspected. The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UTC EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings. This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficent of .04 and surface hardness of 68-72 Rockwell C.

The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier. This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse. In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 2 copy

The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s lock position within the upper and makes it more consistent, resulting in an accuracy improvement. All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat and the bore of the carrier and gas key have been hard chrome lined for the best possible wear resistance.

LANTAC E-BCG Pre Order 3 copy

All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360 patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx). The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver. The BCG’s 11.7oz weight helps to increase lock time and smoother operation. Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

Essentially the only difference is that the BCO has a Titanium housing and the new BTO features a forged 7075-T6 Aluminum housing. This equates to a slightly lower retail price while still maintaining super high quality construction and ruggedness. I spoke with Brian Browe, President of BROWE Inc. regarding the new BTO today and he told me the actual MSRP will be $1,200 but they are offering it at an awesome intro price of just $875 this week. The price will slowly creep up to the regular MSRP so if you want one, jump on it now while its at the lowest price.
