More and more it is becoming very apparent that Cross Machine Tool is more than just an AR receiver manufacturer. CMT was not satisfied with just making some amazing receiver sets so they basically starting making everything else. First it was muzzle devices, which they offer multiple models now. Then they came out with some extremely nice AR-15 and AR-10 handguards and most recently they announced they are introducing their new JAG gas blocks. Well, if you add all of those parts up you’re basically only a few parts away from a complete rifle so it only made sense for Cross Machine Tool to start offering complete rifles. 

Currently they are offering a number of different models including a 10.5″ 5.56 SBR, a 16″ 5.56 rifle and a 20″ 6.5 Creedmoor AR-10 rifle as shown below.

I can tell you I’ve built a ton of personal rifles using Cross Machine Tool receivers, handguards, etc. and you simply can’t go wrong with them. If you’re looking for a new factory built rifle or if you want to buy the individual components and build one your self, Cross Machine Tool is an option that is hard to beat. Check them out at www.CMTTAC.com.

The AERO Precision monthly builder sets are one of the few things I look forward to being released every month. They’ve really kicked it up a notch lately with some amazing Cerakote finishes by the many of the best cerakote applicators in the business. This month they again are offering Builder Sets in both M4E1 (AR-15) and M5E1 (AR-10) configurations and have partnered up with Blown Deadline for a custom Burnt Bronze Woodland Camo finish that looks sick. Both builder sets include upper and lower receivers and a matching handguard in your choice of MLOK or KeyMod. The M4E1 set also comes with a matching trigger guard as well.

AERO Precision Monthly Rifle Giveaway June

In case you missed it (like I did 🙂 ), Forward Controls just released their new EMR-A which stands for Extended Mag Release – Ambi. The EMR-A comes in two different lengths and replaces your standard magazine catch. The EMR-A has an extended lever that now allows you to easily drop the mag from either side of the rifle. It can be used with your standard mag release button or you can upgrade to the Forward Controls mag release buttons. Check out the pictures and details below then head on over to www.ForwardControlsDesign.com to pick one up for yourself.

EMR-A is a long in development ambidextrous magazine release for .223 and .308 AR receivers.  Original concept and design was complete in 2015.  After numerous changes to the mag catch geometry and lever shapes,  final design was made into working prototypes in 2017, and first shown in public at Cola Warrior West III.

EMR-A’s an ergonomic ambidextrous magazine release.  The placement of its lever is well thought out to closely mirror the magazine release button on the right side.  The portion immediately below the bolt catch’s lower paddle has a lower profile to avoid interference, heretofore a common drawback of popular ambidextrous mag catches, it is also left smooth.  The serrated length of the lever is split into a shallow V shaped serrations (80%) that conform to the curvature of the user’s finger, and straight serrations (20%) that form a natural index point, and provide additional traction.  We refer to the design as Multi-faceted Control Surface, the difference MCS makes has to be felt to be fully appreciated.

Two lever options are available.  Standard and Extended Reach (about 0.09″ longer than standard).  Force amplification achieved from a lever means the extended reach lever is easier to reach, it’s also easier to press than the standard lever.  For users with small hands or shorter fingers, the extended reach lever makes the EMR-A a joy to use.  For duty and defense ARs, we recommend the standard lever.

A 10.9lb rated magazine catch spring is included with each EMR-A.  We’ve long considered the standard magazine catch spring to be rather weak (rated at 6.85lb), accidental / unintended mag drops can take place if a user slings his weapon, and has gear and pouches on the vest.  A stiffer mag catch spring mitigates these risks, thus it is an integral part in the EMR-A package.

EMR-A is available as a part of bundled products (please see drop down menus for options).  EMR-A’s catch is made from CNC machined 4140 steel and black nitride coated, its lever is 7075 aluminum and Type 3 hard coat anodized.  The roll pin has a shear strength of 800lbs.

Notes:
– EMR-A’s lever pivots on the receiver.
– EMR-A needs to be removed before installing / removing the trigger.  EMR-A is installed and removed in the same manner as a factory mag catch.
– Please wear eye protection while installing EMR, EMR-C, and EMR-A with the 10.9lb mag catch spring!

Incompatibilities:
– Geissele’s Maritime Bolt Catch.  Material from either the top edge of EMR-A’s lever, or the bottom edge of Maritime Bolt Catch’s lower paddle may need to be removed for both to work together.  The close proximity of these two control surfaces makes this combination less than ideal.
– KNS anti-rotation trigger/hammer pins, the connecting bar will interfere with the EMR-A’s operation.
– Battery assist device levers.
– Armalite AR10B (AR10B uses modified M14 magazines)
