Introducing The Brand Shop by Warrior Culture Gear

Posted on August 16th, 2016 by ar15news

**Press Release**Warrior Culture Gear Banner

August 16th, 2016 | Since the Inception of Warrior Culture Gear we have strived to do things differently. To take lessons we had learned throughout the years of working closely in the Tactical/Firearms Industry as well as many other Major Industries and to change the way things were headed, in a direction of Exclusivity, not the inclusiveness we had initially seen and desperately hoped to return to, and with that we have made what we hope is a major step in that very direction.

Starting with the implementation of our very own Print Shop for Warrior Culture Gear in the Summer of 2015 and our recent move into our new 12,000 sq. Ft. facility, we initially worked very closely with Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics and Paul VanDunk Jr. of Pace Precision initially to create a space for the print and distribution of the design work they had in a way that left them with more time to work on their Training but still help push the mindset and Brand they wanted. Word began to spread that we were putting together something special, something not seen in the Industry with one Primary Apparel Brand helping others push their Brand on the same site as well as distributing and printing their Apparel. Soon we were contacted by Jordan Weaver of Black Wolf Inc. as well as Steve Aryan of GreyFox Industries and 2A Athletics and Bob White of Havoc Shooting Solutions who all inquired about printing services. We offered to print but also to take on Distribution of those Designs from our Facility and what began as a simple gesture turned into what we believe is the start of the NEW Industry Standard of Quality and Inclusion of Brands working together for the common good and a common goal.

WCG Brand Shop

We at Warrior Culture Gear Understand the struggles most businesses face when trying to promote and grow what they believe so deeply in. We also understand that to grow you can’t do it alone. This step into something not seen before only shows the willingness of Warrior Culture Gear to continue to innovate and set the new standard for Branding and Apparel in this Industry and Beyond.

LANTAC .308/7.62×51 E-BCG – Now Available

Posted on August 14th, 2016 by ar15news

By now most people are familiar with the LANTAC E-BCG. I personally use it in my suppressed SBR and it is simply an amazing BCG. They’ve been leaking pics of the .308/7.62×51 version for a while now and all of a sudden…the big boys are finally available. Make no mistake, this is not your average BCG and is priced accordingly. If you’re looking for simply the best .308 BCG, this is it. Pics and details are below. 

Lantac 308 E-BCG 1Lantac 308 E-BCG 1

AR10 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time.
Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a 9310 Precision Hard Ground, Magnetically Particle Inspected Bolt.
The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings.
This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 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.
The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s position within the buffer tube at the time of cycling and allows for a flatter more controlled reciprocation of the assembly.
All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat.
All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360-H™ 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 weight helps to increase lock time with smoother operation.
Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

The E-BCG’s forward porting and unique shape assist in reducing pressurization inside the upper receiver that can be caused by short barrel rifles running suppressors.
However, it should be noted that the E-BCG™ is not a complete solution for this issue and all rifles are different. ‘Over Gassed’ guns will suffer to a larger extent from this problem.

– Weight 1Lb 2.1oz
– Forward Porting, Enlarged Vents.
– Balanced flared boss.
– 8620 Carrier, Heat Treated, Hard Turned.
– MPI 9310 Bolt, Hard Turned / Ground.
– NiB UCT EXO Coating.
– CP-R360-H Domed Cam Pin
– Mil-Spec Gas Rings
– Mil-Spec Staked Gas Key
– Grade 8 Hardened Fasteners
– All Hard Chrome surfaces are to MIL-STD-171 1.2.2.2
– Lifetime Warranty.
– Made in the USA.

The LANTAC 308/7.62×51 E-BCGs are in-stock and available for purchase right now at www.RainierArms.com.

The Fortis Muzzle Brake – for your 9MM

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by ar15news

While it seems like EVERYONE is building a 9mm AR right now, its taken AR component manufactures a little bit longer to jump on board as well. Thankfully Fortis Manufacturing has jumped in with a 9mm version of their extremely popular muzzle brake. What makes this such an awesome new product is not just that it looks pretty amazing but it also interfaces with the Fortis QD CONTROL blast shield (sold separately). This is sure to be a great performing muzzle device for your 9mm AR and is available in both 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI which are the two most common thread patterns for 9mm AR barrels. Check out the information below, then head on over to www.FortisMfg.com and pick one up for yourself.

Fortis Mfg 9mm Muzzle Brake and CONTROL

The performance of the Fortis 556 Muzzle Brake is unmatched and the rise is non-existent, now replicated for your 9MM AR needs (also compatible with the Control Shield).

While the trend of 9MM AR’s continue to rise, we wanted to give those enthusiasts a product that carried the Fortis theme of design and functionality. So we took the 556 Muzzle Brake and utilized its aesthetics while getting the same performance for the 9MM that we do in our 556.

Available only in Nitride, in 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI, now available for purchase on FortisMFG.com.

NEW – Tactical Link PDW Grip

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by ar15news

Over the past few years there has definitely been a huge shift towards AR-15 grips with a more vertical angle for a number of reasons including less wrist fatigue, better shooting posture, etc. Tactical Link, a company well known for very nice slings, sling mounts and other accessories, has just announced their newest product which they are calling the Tactical Link PDW Grip for AR style rifles. The TL PDW Grip looks pretty awesome and features its own distinct texture pattern. Check out the details and pics below. 

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade for AR style rifles with a more vertical angle, optimized for short LOP (length of pull) personal defense weapons (PDW), bringing the primary hand in closer to the shooter’s body, encouraging a more natural “elbows in” shooting posture which substantially reduces wrist fatigue and is concurrent with modern shooting doctrine.

Made to the finest standards from an extremely durable fiber-reinforced polymer, the PDW Grip is the result of extensive professional shooter feedback and engineering excellence that has produced one of the finest shooting upgrades in the market today. The PDW Grip sports a patent pending design with “zones” of moderately aggressive surface texture to provide unmatched gripping properties for positive weapon control in all environments.

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is compatible with most lower receiver mounting platforms (forged or billet) and provides improved biomechanics to better align the trigger finger for a more comfortable and direct rearward trigger pull. Due to its hollow core design (no internal storage), the PDW Grip weighs only 2.1 oz and since the PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade it is sold without a grip screw.

Shooter Refined Ergonomics: at 14 degrees, the PDW Grip is 235% (19 degrees) more vertical than the standard A2 grip and is the most comfortable and relaxing grip on the marketplace. Places the hand’s flexor muscles on more of the same plane creating a more natural hand position for a more natural hand position with little to no fatigue even during prolonged use.

Optimized Biomechanics: small beavertail backstrap provides enhanced ergonomics and allows the operator’s hand to ride high on the grip for improved recoil management and fire control.

Tactile Gripping Texture: much more aggressive texture than most other grips on the marketplace. “Zones” of more aggressive anti-slip texturing on the palm panels for excellent gripping properties and for positive weapon control in all environments.

Features:
–  All edges rounded for operator comfort
–  Reinforced beaver tail for extra rigidity
–  Aggressive PSP (Pentagonal Surface Projections) Texture on both palm panels for superior weapon control
–  Grooves on the front and rear backstraps for optimal anti-slip surface and excellent gripping properties
–  Accommodates the “seam” commonly found on the beaver tail of forged lower receivers
–  Unique trigger guard design provides a very comfortable, and absolutely the best fit at the trigger guard area of any grip on the market
–  Grip “pulls” the operator’s hand forward into the grip for a more positive grip and better operational control of the weapon
–  Robust design easily exceeds industry standards for quality, strength and durability
–  100% made in USA

The Tactical Link PDW Grip is available now directly from www.TacticalLink.com and will start shipping this week! I’ll definitely be snagging one of these soon to try out on an SBR or AR Pistol.
