NEW!! Magpul MOE K2+ (Rubberized) Grip

Posted on November 15th, 2014 by ar15news

I have 3 or 4 rifles with the Magpul MOE K2 grip on them and really like them. Been a fan of the MOE+ for a while now too and have always thought it would be nice if they offered a MOE K2+ version which would add the rubberized finish to it. Well, now they do. Late yesterday they released the new MOE K2+ rubberized grip. If you’re looking for a new grip or just have $25 burning a hole in your pocket, head on over to www.Magpul.com and pick one up.

Now Available!! BCM KAG (Kinesthetic Angled Grip)

Posted on November 13th, 2014 by ar15news

Bravo Company Manufacturing has absolutely been killing lately…even more than they usually do! Hot on the heels of the release of their new BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock and BCMGUNFIGHTER Mod3 Vertical Grip, BCM is now releasing the much anticipated BCMGUNFIGHTER KAG or Kinesthetic Angled Grip. 

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG 2

The KAG is a cool looking rail mounted grip that is somewhat of a mix between a Handstop and a Vertical Grip. It is designed to not only help you get consistent hand placement but it also makes sure you have a more comfortable position for your support hand which will help reduce wrist and arm fatigue. The KAG uses a new patent pending mounting system like the new Mod3 Vertical Grips have and are available in both KeyMod and 1913 Picatinny models. BCM literally just released these yesterday so all models and colors are currently in-stock. Check out the details and pics on the awesome new KAG below.

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG 1

The KAG is the result of collaboration between BCM® and Travis Haley, founder of Haley Strategic Partners and inventor of multiple weapons manipulation enhancements in the firearms industry.

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG Travis Haley

Designed to complement modern shooting grips, the Kinesthetic Angled Grip (KAG) uses a biomechanically efficient forward rake to create an interface for positive retention and joint relief to the wrist, elbow, and shoulder, allowing for smooth weapon manipulation without substantial increase to the girth of the weapon system. Textured on both front and back, the profile of the KAG creates a channel for consistent and positive engagement which translates directly into improved efficiency in weapons manipulation and target to target transitions.

BCM GUNFIGHTER KAG 3

-  Forward rake gives positive retention when using “C-clamp” (thumb over bore) method of handguard support
–  Works as a rest for supported firing positions
–  Slight angle without significant bulk adds just the right amount of relief to the wrist without substantially increasing the girth of the handguard
–  Small profile is just enough to get repeatable hand position on weapon for end
–  Innovative patent pending attachment method allows for robust clamping and alignment with minimal hardware and slender accessory size
–  Textured in front and back for positive engagement
–  Made in the U.S.A. from high quality, impact resistant polymers.

Available for purchase now at an introductory price of $17.95 at http://www.bravocompanymfg.com/kag/

 

 

My Journey To NFA Ownership – Got The Trust, Now Lets E-File It

Posted on November 12th, 2014 by ar15news

Step one to My Journey To NFA Ownership was deciding to have Coyote Rifleworks create my NFA Trust for me. That was the easiest part of this whole thing. They have a great reputation, offer same day turnaround and they charge just $95. Using an NFA Trust means there is NO CLEO (Chief Law Enforcement Officer) Signature, NO Fingerprints and NO Photographs and it allows you to e-file your Form 1 on the ATF website. True to their word I was emailed my NFA Trust in .pdf format within just a few hours. I printed it out and got ready to do some leg work.

Coyote Rifleworks NFA Trust SBR Application

Now that I had my Trust printed out the next step was to meet up with a certified Notary Public, sign them and have the Trust notarized. At this point you do not need to add the serialized NFA items to the trust, just get the signatures done. There are plenty of ways to do this including searching for a local Notary Public or find offices such as Insurance Agencies where a lot of their employees would be a certified Notary. This should technically be a very easy step but with my family schedule, work schedule and the schedule of my Notary Public it took me forever to get done, hence why the lengthy time in between article #1 and #2. Once I finally did meet up with my Notary she looked it over and had zero issues making sense of the Coyote Rifleworks trust and in no time my wife and I were signing. A few minutes later I had a signed, witnessed and notarized NFA Trust in my hand that is the main key to My Journey To NFA Ownership. Before submitting the Form 1 you do need to assign your SBR Lower or Suppressor to the Trust on pages 18 and 19. Once I had my 19 page NFA Trust signed and notarized, and filled out it was time to submit my Form 1. 

By using an NFA Trust you can submit your Form 1 by going on the ATF eForms website at https://www.atfonline.gov/EForms and eFiling the form instead of filling out a paper form and sending it in. This dramatically speeds up the approval process and gives you an easy way to check in on the status of your submitted forms. I will tell you that submitting a Form 1 on your own can be a bit intimidating on your first try. One of the most useful tools I found was this page on AR15.com that actually takes you step by step through the whole submittal process.

ATF eForms Login Page

One simple tip I can give you to help make things go smoother is that when you scan the pages of your NFA Trust document back into a single .pdf, make sure you scan it at a low DPI and in Black and White. The ATF website has a 3MB limit on the size of attachment you can upload. I learned this the hard way and had to figure out how to compress the size of the .pdf using online software. Once you’ve uploaded the documents, filled out the required info and clicked submit, its just a waiting game.

It took me about an hour to carefully read through and submit my Form 1 online. Right now I’ve been waiting for about 10 days and anticipate it taking another 3-4 weeks before my application is approved. I’ve seen eFile applications get approved in as little as 19 days so here’s hoping that mine will go that fast. As you can see this is a very simple method of registering your SBR, converting your AR Pistol to an SBR or purchasing a new suppressor. The best thing I did was have Coyote Rifleworks do my NFA Trust. Head on over to CoyoteRifleworks.com to get your NFA Trust created today. 

Veterans Day Sale – Red Barn Armory – THIS Is How It’s Done!

Posted on November 10th, 2014 by ar15news

Gotta give major props to Red Barn Armory for putting together this awesome Veterans Day Sale. Most of the time businesses are just looking to cash in on sales instead of honoring our Veterans by offering a discount code to everyone even if they haven’t served. Red Barn Armory has a really cool idea and I hope a lot of other companies follow suit. Right now if you are a Veteran, RBA is offering a 10% off Discount Code and Free Shipping to you to say Thank You For Your Service! If you are not a Veteran of our Armed Forces, you can still get a discount code but you first need to make a donation of at least $1 to the Disabled American Veterans organization. At that point you can use your own 10% off Discount Code or a Free Shipping Discount Code. This way no matter what you are either honored for being a Veteran or honored for supporting our Veterans.

NEW!! KAK Industry Nitride Full Auto BCG

Posted on November 9th, 2014 by ar15news

KAK Industry just introduced their brand new Nitride coated M16/AR15 BCG. A couple of nice things to note on these is that there are No MIM Parts Used (all parts are machined for added strength and reliability) and the fact that it is Nitrate treated means this thing will run super slick. The Nitride “coating” is actually a surface treatment that will not come off, increases lubricity, hardens the surface and increases the durability of the product. KAK is offering the new Nitride Coated BCG at an introductory price of just $99.95 each. Details, pics and purchase link are below.

Now Available!! Radical Firearms 5.56mm SpitFire Muzzle Brake

Posted on November 8th, 2014 by ar15news

A few weeks ago I showed you guys some pictures of my new AR Pistol that Radical Firearms built and camo’d for me. One of the parts of that rifle that got the most interest was their new SpitFire Muzzle Brake. In fact it was one of the first things that caught my eye as well. Basically the SpitFire is a modular muzzle device that allows you to switch between two different ends. One option is more like what you would find on Krink style AK while the second option features spiraled tines that pretty much turbo charge your muzzle blast and creates a super sized fireball. Both work well to push all of the muzzle blast forward though which is the main benefit. At the time I received my AR Pistol these were not available for sale but just today Radical Firearms released the much anticipated 5.56mm version. They will also be releasing the 7.62mm version in a few weeks. Normal retail price on these is $135 but they are available at an intro price of just $99.95. Details and pics are below. Head on over to www.RadicalFirearms.com to snag one for yourself before this first run is all gone.

Radical Firearms SpitFire Muzzle Brake 2 Radical Firearms SpitFire Muzzle Brake 2

Introducing the SpitFire™, a Revolutionary New Modular muzzle brake by Radical Firearms. The SpitFire™ is CNC machined using the highest quality materials available and is made in the USA! The body is CNC machined from Billet 4150V Chromoly BAR stock.

The SpitFire™ comes with two interchangeable heads: one a krink style brake that redirects the noise, blast, and concussion forward away from the shooter down range. The other head, The Fireball also redirects the noise, blast and concussion forward but creates a fireball of a flash to astound Hephaestus himself!
