AERO Precision gives away a complete rifle every single month and has been for quite some time. However, I don’t think any of them have looked as sexy as the one they are giving away for the month of August. This rifle is a complete M4E1 rifle that is coated MultiCam Black. The M4E1 upper features an integrated rail mounting system for the 15″ KeyMod rail. The rifle will also come with a Magpul CTR with MultiCam Black on it, VG6 Precision GAMMA 556 muzzle brake and a B5 Systems grip. Giveaway link is listed below.
Our August Rifle Giveaway is now accepting entries! Enter for your chance to win a #Multicam Black M4E1 Complete Rifle with Magpul Industries Corp. Multicam Black Stock, VG6 Precision Gamma 556, and B5 SystemsGrip.
MagPod has been working on a new FDE version for the past few months with an expected release of August and it looks like they weren’t kidding. Our friends at VF Gunrunners is one of, if not the first to get in a batch of the FDE MagPods. The MagPod FDE perfectly matches the Magpul FDE…which is a good thing because they go on Magpul PMAGs. I have used MagPods ranging from one of the first prototypes to full production models and many in-between and I can tell you they work great for adding a stable shooting platform while shooting prone without the need of a bipod. They also make for a great Mag-Pull when retrieving a new mag during a reload. VFGunrunners has 3-pack of FDE MagPods in-stock for $19.95 with Free Shipping. Hit him up at www.VFGunrunners.com.

Mega Arms just let us know they are now shipping the .308 version of their popular SLIDE LOCK ambi charging handle. As you may recall, the SLIDE LOCK is an ambi charging handle that does not have the usual latch required to release the charging handle. Instead it uses spring pressure to keep the charging handle in place until you pull back on either side of it at which time it releases and functions exactly like any other charging handle. With the popularity of the Mega Arms MATEN and the AR-10 in general soaring this has been something people have been asking for more and more. Now that Mega Arms has started shipping units, all you have to do is keep an eye out at the typical Mega Arms dealers such as Rainier Arms and snag one when they come in.
– Cutting edge new design. Does not require a latch to be pulled to release charging handle.
– Made from 7075-T651 billet aluminum.
– Black Nitrided latch
– Compatible with any 308/Large Frame, Semi Auto upper.
– SL-4000 for MATEN / AR-10 MSRP $68

American Defense Mfg has the new and much anticipated Vortex Optics StrikeEagle 1-6×24 AR-BDC scopes in-stock and has them paired with their RECON-X mount for an unbeatable deal. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one of these scopes for a while and am very tempted with this deal. Basically you can get the scope and mount for just $430 which is about $100 less than if I were to buy the scope and mount separately. This should be an awesome setup so if you’re looking for a quality optic/mount combo that won’t break the bank, head on over to www.AmericanDefenseManufacturing.com.
Vortex Optics StrikeEagle 1-6×24 AR-BDC reticle / RECON-X mount combo is available NOW on our website! We just got these long awaited scopes in from Vortex with more on the way. Follow the link below for the product listing on our website.

If you are running a pistol caliber AR you might want to get on the notification list for the new Side Charging Upper coming soon from Quarter Circle 10. Pics and details are below. These are not in-stock yet but you can enter your email in the “Get Notified” box at www.QuarterCircle10.com.
Our upper features a non-reciprocating charging handle. This allows the operator to remain in the firing position while charging the firearm. You can easily pull the charging handle to the rear and active the bolt catch with one hand in one motion. This upper was designed around mil-spec standard and will accept any of our blow back bolt assemblies. This upper has an enlarged ejection port and will fire pistol calibers from 9mm to .45 ACP. Our upper has a trap door in the rear to keep dirt out of the upper and allow easy removal of the bolt from the receiver.

SI-Defense, now known as FALKOR Defense makes some absolutely top tier quality AR-15 and AR-10 components and rifles. They rarely ever go on sale but for a limited time they are offering a discount on their very nice .308 NIB BCGs. Just use the code “308BCGNIB” at checkout and receiver $35 off that part.

Reducing too much weight may cause integrity issues, while adding weight decreases overall rifle performance. SI-D has also tightened its tolerances in key areas for ultimate reliability and longevity purposes. Finally, a great deal of engineering methodology has gone into SI-D’s manufacturing process that allows consistency on a part that must perform every time. Key dimensions are continuously inspected, including Magnetic Inspection on the carrier and bolt.

My buddy “Chummerz” who works for Rainier Arms gets his hands on a ton of the newest stuff on the market. Recently he shared a few pictures of a new Quick Detach Blast Diverter that will be coming soon from Fortis Manufacturing. Blast Diverters or Blast Shields have really been taking off in popularity over the last few years as more and more people realize the potential benefits they offer, especially when it is a QD version that can be installed over a muzzle brake for indoor use and quickly removed for outdoor use letting you utilize the full benefits of the muzzle brake.
There isn’t a ton of information available yet for the new Quick Detach Blast Diverter from Fortis Manufacturing (shown below) but it appears to be mounted to the also coming soon Rainier Arms XTC 2.o muzzle device. While this would make for a great combo, I’m hoping it means it will be compatible with many different muzzle devices which I feel would make it even more of a huge success than it is already guaranteed to be.
As with most sneak peeks, this QD Blast Diverter appears to be shown in the white, meaning it has not had its protective coating applied. Most likely you will see a Melonite, Anodized or Phosphate coating on the finished product. Chummerz said he will be hitting the range with the new Fortis Manufacturing QD Blast Diverter this week and will get some video, etc. Be sure to keep tabs on his Facebook and Instagram accounts at the links below.
