SHOT Show 2016 – Quarter Circle 10

Posted on January 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

I recently built a Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR and am kind of obsessed with the pistol caliber ARs. The one I built uses Glock mags which is cool since I carry a Glock but another reason I like it is that its pretty inexpensive to shoot and is a nice change from the standard AR. This year at SHOT Show, QC10 had some new components to show off including a new KeyMod handguard, a lower that takes MP5 mags and a new Side Charging upper. They announced that they will be creating lowers that take mags for the Sig 226, 229 and M&P and they will also be offering complete guns with pre-orders starting next week . 

The new KeyMod hand guards look pretty awesome. They definitely have their own unique style which is a good thing. Too many rails out there look pretty much the same. No ETA or price range yet.

Here’s a look at the Side Charging upper that QC10 partnered up with VLTOR on. This particular one is a prototype but gives you a good idea of what the final model will look like.

Last but definitely not least, that MP5 lower!! QC10 will be growing their list of mag compatible lowers this year to include MP5 mags, Sig 226 and 229 mags and Smith & Wesson M&P mags.

Definitely exciting to see Quarter Circle 10 growing so much and really just killing it with their new products. If you’re interested in building or buying a Pistol Caliber AR, Quarter Circle 10 is the company to watch this year!!

SHOT Show 2016 – FALKOR Defense

Posted on January 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

FALKOR Defense really wowed a ton of people this week at SHOT Show this week. They unveiled a number of new products including their new “OPTIMUS” PDW stock, FALKOR Defense bipod, showing off the PETRA 300WM and of course the new #BALLSOHARDER movie.

The OPTIMUS PDW stock is such a cool stock. Unlike most PDW stocks, the OPTIMUS only uses one guide rod which is on the bottom, instead of on the sides. With a push of a button you can extend the stock and then the butt pad flips up.

FALKOR also introduced their new bipod. I don’t have a ton of information on the bipod just yet but it definitely looks awesome.

Of course the PETRA 300WM rifle was center stage at the FALKOR Defense booth. The PETRA 300WM is touted as the “softest shooting 300wm rifle out there” and the videos they’ve shown of it, that is probably true. A couple different models of PETRA 300WM rifles were recently released for order.

Last but not leasts is the #BALLSOHARDER movie. This was a big collaboration between FALKOR Defense and a bunch of other industry partners. You can watch the video by clicking on the image below.

SHOT Show 2016 – Faxon Firearms

Posted on January 21st, 2016 by ar15news

Faxon Firearms was at SHOT Show this year. They showed off some really cool stuff including their Holding Precision Firearms rifles as well as the much anticipated ARAK-31 (.308) version of the ARAK.

For Holding Precision Firearms they featured the Wraith rifle. It has a really cool Carbon Fiber handguard, the Curse dual chamber muzzle brake, billet receivers and even a Carbon Fiber stock. http://faxonfirearms.com/brands/Houlding.html

Of course, everyone wants to see the Faxon Firearms ARAK-31 .308 rifle. It appears they’ve made some nice improvements so far including the ambi charging handle that can be used at the same time as the standard folding charging handle. The ARAK-31 features an ambi ejection port meaning the end user can rotate the bolt 180 degrees and choose which side they would like the rifle to eject on. Another nice touch is the M-LOK attachment method on the rail as well as the QD sling attachment points. Not sure when the release date is but lets hope it’s soon! http://faxonfirearms.com/arak/arak-31-308-win/

Centurion Arms Adds KeyMod and M-LOK to the CMR Lineup

Posted on January 21st, 2016 by ar15news

This week at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Centurion Arms sneakily introduced two new versions of their extremely popular CMR rail in the Magpul and BattleComp booths. The CMR rail is a very slim, rugged, tubular rail. It features threaded holes every couple of inches to bolt the CMR rail covers, hand stops, etc to but most accessories made by other companies are designed to attach to 1913 quad rails, KeyMod rails or M-LOK rails. Now you can get the CMR in your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK as well.

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

Now that you can choose KeyMod or M-LOK, it really opens up a whole new world of usable accessories you can attach to your CMR rail. I’ve got a ton of grips, light mounts, hand stops, rail sections, rail covers, etc. just waiting for an awesome rail like this. I immediately installed the CMR M-LOK rail on my CIV Tactical SPR build. The ability to add a picatinny rail for my bipod via M-LOK (or KeyMod for that matter) is quick and painless. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The overall profile of the new CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails is very similar to the original CMR and still features anti-rotation tabs. The barrel nut is also very similar, in fact the new rail will mount to an older CMR barrel nut, but Centurion Arms actually modified the new barrel nut to be able to tighten them using a standard AR-15 castle nut wrench. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The production model CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails will have QD Sling Mounts at the front and rear of the rail on each side just like the original (the ones in my photos were pre-production) and will be available in both 15″ (shown) and 13″ models.

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

MSRP on the new rails will run $240 for a 15″ and $230 for a 13″. Centurion Arms will start taking pre-orders at the beginning of February at an introductory price of just $200 for a 15″ or $195 for a 13″ and start shipping units around the end of February. Centurion Arms is an awesome company owned and operated by a retired Navy SEAL. Lets show them some support! Be sure to follow Centurion Arms on their social media outlets listed below to know when the pre-orders start.
