Looking for a more cost effective alternative to the Sig SB15 Arm Brace for your AR Pistol? Check out the the new KAK Industry “Shockwave” Pistol Buffer Tube which is designed to perfectly interface with the new Shockwave Blade Pistol Stabilizer. The buffer tube features 12 dimples that interact with the Blade’s “anti-rotation / anti-thrust” set screw to adjust position for comfort as well as keeps the Blade from spinning on the buffer tube. Sounds like a great setup and at just $95 for the complete kit (about half the price of a Sig SB15 Arm Brace and Buffer Tube Kit) its a great deal too. Purchases of the complete KAK/Shockwave Kit or the individual parts can be made at www.KAKIndustry.com. Dealer inquiry information is at the bottom of the press release.
Oxnard, CA (April 6, 2015)—KAK Industry, a leader in firearms component manufacturing, announces that is has secured the exclusive distribution rights to Shockwave Technologies’ line of Blade pistol stabilizers. KAK also reveals that it has developed a custom buffer tube for the Blade.
The class 3 hard-anodized tube features 12 length-adjustment settings. Its anti-rotation and anti-thrust design mean that the Blade stays put without sliding forward or spinning. The tube is flush with rear of Blade when it’s installed fully forward. When installed fully out, the assembly is incredibly rigid.
Being of the castle nut design, the KAK Shockwave tube accepts all carbine buffer systems, mil-spec receiver endplates, and aftermarket endplates. Kurt Kosman, president of KAK Industry, remarked, “Our two innovative companies have combined efforts to bring a higher-quality, easier-to-use, more-affordable pistol stabilizing system to the market.”
“Teaming up with KAK Industry is a smart step for our small company,” stated Marty Ewer, owner of Shockwave. “We have a product that is an immediate hit with anybody who sees it. KAK is well-respected in the industry for its quality products and excellent customer service. And they have the resources to really catapult the Blade into the industry spotlight—pairing it with their KAK Shockwave tube and getting the system in front of virtually everybody through its rapidly expanding dealer network.”
KAK Industry will retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and package deals online as well as provide wholesale pricing to Web-based resellers and brick-and-mortar shops. Dealers interested in retailing the Blade should contact KAK Industry through their website (www.kakindustry.com) or by phone at 805-981-4734. Shockwave will also retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and kits through its website and other Internet channels. “Our goal is to make the Blade pistol stabilizer and KAK Shockwave tube 2015’s must-have accessories,” added Kosman. For more information, contact KAK Industry at 805-981-4734 or Shockwave Technologies at 801-815-5178.
Rainier Arms is running a big blowout sale on the GWACS stripped lowers at below cost! These are great for super lightweight builds or those looking to build a complete lower on a budget. The CAV15 MKII lowers are a polymer construction that includes the stock and grip with a design that doesn’t suffer from strength issues like many other polymer setups do. My buddy Matt over at Jerking The Trigger has a sub 6 Pound Build that he’s working on and has had good things to say about the CAV15 MKII lower on it. Rainier Arms has a bunch of Black CAV15 MKII lowers and has decided to put them up for sale at below cost to clear up some inventory room and make room for new stuff. If you are looking for something like this, head on over to www.RainierArms.com and snag one now for just $89.95.
Saw this last night on the KE Arms Facebook and Instagram feed and thought I would share it with you guys. This is a Barrel Nut Wrench that attaches to a torque wrench or socket wrench. It has 5 pins on each side, strategically placed to work with both a standard AR-15 Barrel Nut and .308 Barrel Nut. By having 5 pins you shouldn’t have too much force on any single one but if you do happen to bend or break one you are able to tap them out and install a new pin. I’ve used similar style wrenches in the past and they work great. The only thing I would love to see is they could add in a Castle Nut Wrench at a 90 Degree angle so the pins wouldn’t be in the way of the wrench shaft. Even without a Castle Nut Wrench, this looks like something I’ll have to pick up to try out. No word on pricing or availability but it should be coming soon to www.KEArms.com.
Another new product from KE Arms, the last barrel nut wrench you will ever need to buy. .223 & .308 with 5 replaceable pins on each side for better distribution of force. Even if you bend or break them you can tap them out and install new ones.
Ever since the first day Fortis Mfg introduced their Hammer charging handle for the AR-15 people have been asking “Are you going to make one for the AR-10 too?” and the answer was always “Yes!”. The Hammer is an awesome charging handle with a very aggressive oversized latch and if you’re one of the ones who has been wanting one for your AR-10 rifle, you’ll be happy to know that they are now available. Fortis Mfg sent their first batch of Black Teflon 7.62 Hammer charging handles to Revolvr to offer them at a special exclusive intro price. The normal MSRP will be $69.95 but right now you can get in on the first run for just $55.95 with FREE SHIPPING. Check it out for yourself at www.REVOLVR.com.
Battle Arms Development has just introduced the newest version of their SaberTube and Lightweight Butt Stock combo which uses an included QD End Plate. The first version of the SaberTube and Lightweight Butt Stock did not allow the use of an End Plate and was designed for receivers that had the rear takedown pin detent hole threaded for a set screw. This new version has been redesigned to allow the use of the included QD End Plate and will work on any normal AR-15 lower receiver. This kit includes the SaberTube, BAD-LBS (Lightweight Butt Stock) and a CNC Machined 7075T6 QD End Plate and is available for one week at an Intro Price of $159.95 only at www.REVOLVR.com.

“Muzzle Projectors”, “Blast Diverters”, “Concussion Redirectors”, etc are far from new to the AR market place. The fact is they are everywhere and for good reason…they work great. Some are straight up muzzle devices whose sole job is to redirect concussion and blast forward of the muzzle, while others are a combination of a muzzle brake/compensator that allows you to attach a sleeve of some sort to it. The later is the way that many manufacturers are going as you get the best of both worlds, functioning as a brake/comp under normal use but quick attach of a concussion redirector when needed.
Damage Industries has just introduced their own models that consist of a compensator muzzle device with a threaded collar to which you can thread on your choice of either a solid sleeve or a ported sleeve (shown in the pictures). One of the features that I like most about Damage Industries’ Muzzle Projector is that it can be tightened down with any standard AR-15 barrel nut wrench instead of trying to do it by hand or with a strap wrench. These can also be pinned in place. Another nice thing is that it only costs a total of $70 between the muzzle device and sleeve. Unfortunately they are not all in-stock at the moment so keep checking their muzzle device page at www.DamageIndustriesLLC.com.
First look at our new muzzle projectors!
These will be offered as both a compensator and a brake.
Available in 1/2 x 28, 5/8 x 24, and 14-1 LH!
The projector sleeves will fit any of the thread pitches and are available as a solid sleeve or ported dissipator (pictured).
New features include: Ability to install with a standard barrel nut wrench, and the ability to pin it in place.
Made in USA from 4140 steel with a manganese phosphate finish.
Weight ~8oz: Dissipator & Brake combined, ~9oz: Solid Sleeve & Brake combined
I’ve built tons of AR-15 uppers and a good majority of them use Low Profile Gas Blocks with set screws and a few are pinned to the barrel. A couple of things I’ve learned with experience is that I always use Loctite on the set screws and whenever possible, I prefer to have the barrel dimpled for the set screw to seat in properly and really lock the gas block in place. It always amazes me when I spend good money on a barrel only to find that they didn’t take the time to dimple the barrel on the bottom side of the gas block seat and it happens more often than not.
The guys over at Parallax Tactical have found a way to make great use of their blemished Low Pro Gas Blocks by installing a Cone Point Set Screw that locks into the Gas Port of the barrel and a Hardened Steel Drill Bushing that allows you to use a simple hand drill and Cobalt 11/64th drill bit to dimple your barrels and in the exact right place every time.
These come as a complete kit, including the 11/64th Cobalt Drill Bit and is available for both .750 and .625 gas block journal diameters. The entire kit will sell for just $49.95 and can be used over and over again. Order one for yourself today at www.WeaponOutfitters.com. I’m going to!
Presenting a REAL gas block dimpling jig. (compare to BRD with no drill bushing, limited use. We had to buy three-four of them before we found it cheaper just to use our reject gas blocks.)
Comes with a hardened steel drill bushing, a cobalt 11/64th drill bit and a cone point #10-32 cone point set screw which positively locates the gas port for a perfectly lined up dimple directly beneath the gas port for optimum function and security for all low profile gas blocks.
Comes in 750 and 625 gas block journal sizes.
Saw this posted on the Radical Firearms Facebook page and wanted to make sure you guys got in on this sale. Another amazingly good deal from our friends at Radical Firearms.

Get the 10.5″ 300BLK Upper with a Rail and BCG for just $279.95 but only if you act fast.
The 7.62×39 Upper for $279.95 is also in-stock.
Magpul just released a video showing off their new Magpul QDM Sling Swivel. The QDM Sling Swivel with a dual push button release that allows the user to pinch both buttons to release the sling instead of pushing in on the middle button. The QDM Sling Swivel can not be removed unless both buttons are pinched at the same time preventing accidental removal. Check out the video below for more information.
The Magpul QDM is a melonited, heavy duty upgrade to standard quick detach sling swivels. The innovative design allows for a lower profile sling swivel that offers one-handed manipulation, an optimized bale that rotates freely and canalizes rifle slings to prevent rollover, and superior resistance to corrosion.
– 2-point engagement prevents accidental release.
– Optimized bale for sling management
– Fits all standard sized QD cups
– Designed to work with 1 1/4” slings
– Superior corrosion resistance
– Made in U.S.A.
Here’s a short video on the Magpul QDM Sling Swivel — a small product with some big features.

Here’s a look at one of the American Defense Mfg UIC-10A Rifle pre-production prototypes. The UIC-10A .308 rifle will feature similar ambidextrious controls and billet receivers that we’ve seen from their 5.56/.223 line. They will also feature 416R Stainless Steel barrels that are 1:10 twist. They will be available in a 14.5″ midlength, 16″ rifle length, and possibly an 18″ rifle length and 20″ in 6.5 Creedmoor.
I’m really digging these new rifles that American Defense Mfg has been coming out with. Their 5.56 line of rifles have already been shown to be great rifles and I’m sure these new .308’s will be the same. I’ve heard from numerous people that the ambi controls are extremely intuitive and work great.
