One of the sweetest new lowers to come out on the market recently is the San Tan Tactical STT-15 billet completely ambi lower. Not only does it have a super unique look with a great finish but each lower also comes with fully ambidextrous controls including ambi bolt release and ambi mag release, plus ambi QD sling mounts built right into the lower. Normal retails is $290 but right now they have some lowers with minor cosmetic blemishes that they are calling STT-15-GRENADES and are ready to move them at a heavily discounted price.
These blem lowers are 100% functionally the same as non-blem models but may have minor nicks or visible tool marks but nothing major. They are also switching to a reversed flag design where these have the forward facing flag. Some companies wouldn’t even think twice about selling these as normal lowers but they just simply aren’t up to San Tan Tactical quality standards when it comes to the finish and look of the lower. The pictures below are of an actual blem lower and show an example of the minor cosmetic issues.
For non-AR15NEWS readers the price on these blem lowers is $230. However, we were able to get a special discount code just for you guys.
Use the code “ar15newsblem” at checkout and you can get yours for just $199.99. You can even choose with or without the San Tan Tactical logo on the magwell. Head on over to www.SanTanTactical.com to get one for yourself.

A Revolutionary New M-Commerce App in the Firearms Industry
(Official Public BETA Launch on Feb 10, 2014)
Revolvr is a firearm accessory peer to peer exchange that was founded by the entrepreneurs behind Rainier Arms, Defense Marketing Group, and the newly announced PayMeBaby platform that drives the PistolPay payment service. Today, Revolvr officially unveiled the company and its first product, the free Revolvr Android app, which is based on creating a social buying experience for firearm enthusiasts. Revolvr is the first native m-commerce application that is open to the 2A friendly community that allows individuals to freely buy and sell firearm accessories.
“Hundreds of millions of dollars are exchanged each year in the secondary firearm market, we are looking to decrease the friction of this exchange using technologies of today paired with our new partners at PistolPay, to enable safe payments between firearm enthusiasts across the United States.” said John Hwang, founder & CEO of Revolvr. “We created Revolvr so that the firearm industry can “revolve” their used firearm accessories.”
HOW IT WORKS
Revolvr solves the much needed problem of person to person transactions in the firearms community. A new Revolvr user can download the application from the Google Play Store and sign up for the service and begin posting their new or used parts & accessories in the mobile application. “We wanted to create a mobile first experience with Revolvr which is why we didn’t start with a website commerce site” said Tony Bristol, founder & Chief Product Officer of Revolvr. “Eventually we will have a website, though we didn’t want it to drive our design or user experience in the mobile centric society we operate in today’s world.” Revolvr will bring together firearm enthusiasts from across the United States to exchange their valued items in a safe and secure way. Revolvr takes a small fee of each sale to cover credit card transaction fees as well as continued investment into the Revolvr app development.
Revolvr is integrated with the latest social tools like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter to share items easily with user’s social networks. Revolvr also leverages the PistolPay payment service which is the only 2A friendly peer-to-peer payment service in the market, combining the security PCI compliance with the safety of an escrow solution.
Revolvr was founded in August, 2013 by a team of firearm innovators and a mobile application pioneer: John Hwang and Paul Hwang of Rainier Arms and Tony Bristol, previously with Microsoft; and for the last 6 years, an executive and founder of multiple mobile startups.
“For several years our industry has been discriminated against by large ecommerce and payment solutions. Revolvr brings together the latest mobile technologies leveraging Tony’s experience in the technology and mobile startup ecosystem with Paul and my grassroots knowledge of the firearms industry, to deliver a product that truly serves our industry.” said John Hwang, Rainier Arms CEO and firearms marketing guru.
Revolvr is a mobile firearm accessory marketplace built around the mobile social experience. Firearm enthusiasts are able to quickly post their accessories and buy new or used items right from their phones. Revolvr’s 2A friendly community brings firearm enthusiast together to share their individual collections, allowing open commerce for a community underserved by the newest technologies. Founded in August of 2013, Revolvr is headquartered in Auburn, WA. For more information, please visit www.revolvr.com. Revolvr’s free Android App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

A few months ago Joe Bob Outfitters introduced their new Spartan-15 Enhanced Billet Lower. I wanted to show you guys but they kept selling out before I could do anything. This time I was ready when they came back in-stock. As you already know, there are lots of billet lowers on the market, but so many of them look just like the next one and not to mention they can be very expensive. This is not the case with the new Spartan-15 Enhanced Billet Lower. The Spartan-15 has a very unique looking design and also features a Spartan Helmet on the right side of the magwell with the famous inscription “ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ” just below the helmet. Not only does this lower look amazing but it is also one of the best deals running. At just $119.95 its nearly the same prices as most forged lowers but offers a lot of addition features such as a flared magwell, 45 degree selector compatibility, threaded bolt catch assembly, upper receiver tensioning screw, and a bunch more (listed below). These seriously are a no-brainer. I need another lower like I need another hole in my head but I think I’m going to have to buy one of these. You can buy one too at www.JoeBobOutfitters.com.

I’ve had numerous people ask me lately where they can find a set of Magpul MBUS PRO sights. The new MBUS PRO’s have gained the reputation of being just as good as the awesome KAC Micro BUIS but a bit more affordable. Unfortunately, Magpul doesn’t always send both front and rear sights to retailers at the same time so its been hard to get a complete set even when you do find them in-stock. Right now I know of two sources who have Magpul MBUS PRO’s in-stock.
Weapon Outfitters has both Front and Rear Magpul MBUS PRO’s in-stock right now which as I say is kind of rare. The front and rear set together costs $189.90 with $7.95 shipping. If you spend over $200 with WO you get FREE SHIPPING so keep that in mind if you need any other items that WO may have.

Chase Tactical has just the Front Magpul MBUS PRO in-stock. If you only need the front sight this is a good deal. If you use the discount code “ar15news” at checkout you’ll save 10% and the price is just $78.63 Shipped.

Spring time is coming which means there will be a lot more time to get out and train / shoot your guns here in the near future. Right now would be a great time to start preparing for the warmer weather by stocking up on some great range time accessories. For the month of February, TacStrike has their Arch Frame Target Carrier, the best target stand I’ve ever used, on sale for just $26.
I’m currently using mine in conjunction with the Drop Steel Swinger target I bought from TacStrike a few months ago but you don’t need any fancy targets to use the Arch Frame Target Carrier. With the Arched Frame Target Carrier all you need is two 2×2 posts (I just rip a 2×4 in half) that lock into the pockets of the carrier. You can make them as short or as tall as you want them to be and staple paper targets, IDPA targets, etc. to the wood posts.
The biggest improvement that the Arch Frame Target Carrier offers comes is where they get the name from. The feet of the target are not just flat bars like most target carriers. You rarely find perfectly flat ground so TacStrike has arched the feet of the carrier so that it has 4 points of contact and doesn’t rock back and forth on uneven ground. The feet actually dig into the ground a bit and add stability.
If you’re hoping to train a bit more this year or just want to upgrade your current target setup, head on over to TacStrike and pic up a couple Arch Frame Target Carriers. You may want to take a look at the other awesome target options while you’re there. www.TacStrike.com
We’ve been a huge fan of Tactical Walls for some time now. What started out with a few small wall inserts that you could hide behind a mirror, etc. has grown into an large product line consisting of multiple different sizes of wall inserts and really cool covers such as lockable sliding mirrors. The only thing that was missing was one of the most requested items and that was a “Renter Friendly” option. To meet the needs of those who rent their living space or simply just don’t want to cut a huge hole in their wall to install the wall insert, Tactical Walls has now created lockable Concealment Shelves. I’ve got to say, this is about as cool as it gets.
Tactical Walls now offers two different size Concealment Shelves, the RLS (Rifle Length Shelf) and the PLS (Pistol Length Shelf). Both shelves are lockable and use a magnetic key that allows access to the hidden storage compartment which lowers from the bottom of the shelf. Not only do these look like really nice shelves for your house or apartment but they also don’t require you to cut any holes in your walls to install. Just mount the brackets (on top of the shelf) to a wall by screwing it into the studs of the wall and that things not going to budge. These mounting brackets look like fancy bookends but add a lot of strength to the design.
I’m really stoked that Tactical Walls continues to create very cool new products to meet the demands of their customers. This “Renter Friendly” design is going to be an awesome option for any home owner whether renting or own. Get in on the pre-order of the Tactical Walls Concealment Shelves right now to get FREE SHIPPING. Pre-orders will ship during the month of February so it won’t be a very long wait like some pre-orders. Order yours now at www.TacticalWalls.com.
Seems I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve neglected my good friends over at Damage Industries. They always have some really great deals and awesome products. They recently introduced a couple of brand new products that are really cool and stuff that would definitely be of interest to our AR15NEWS readers. The first is the Multi Adaptable Carbine End Plate. The second is a brand new style of QD sling attachment called the QDS3 (Quick Detach Silent Sling Swivel). I have the info for both of these items listed below.
The Multi Adaptable Carbine End Plate that features multiple sling attachment options including 2 QD points (one center and one on the side) and one Hook Loop on the side. This may not sound completely new but the major difference is that this end plate can be flipped around letting you determine which side you want the outer QD and Hook Loop on. Its also made of 4140 Steel and Phosphate coated but very high strength and corrosion resistance. Best of all, they’re just $19.95 each. You can purchase them at www.DamageIndustriesLLC.com.
The other cool new product that they introduced just today is the QDS3 or Quick Detach Silent Sling Swivel. This new swivel is called the Silent Sling Swivel because it eliminates the normal loop and has a machined in loop that doesn’t move. This will be most silent when used in conjunction with a sling webbing but you could also attach other items such as a sling that has hook attachments to this which would work pretty nicely as well. This QD is made entirely of Stainless Steel and will feature a Black Oxide finish. As with all Damage Industries products, these are made right here in the USA. Look for the new QDS3 to be available for purchase very soon.
The Geissle SMR line of rails are absolutely awesome. I have a few now and a couple more on order. The only complaint I hear is that some people can’t afford them. Well, here’s your chance to save big time. Our friends at Weapon Outfitters are having an awesome closeout deal on the awesome Geissele SMR MK4 rail. Geissele has decided to only produce the SMR MK4 with KeyMod from here on out so the standard SMR MK4 is no more. This is a very rare chance to get a top of the line rail system for your AR while saving about $100 off retail. They have a few versions of the SMR MK4 rail available starting with a Black 9.5″ rail for just $250. If you want a 13″ just add $20, if you want the Flat Dark Earth color add another $20. You have to create an account over at Weapon Outfitters first to see the special pricing. Then go to www.WeaponOutfitters.com to get your fill of Geissele SMR MK4 awesomeness.
Out of all of the different parts of an AR that can let you down and fail during a class, range session or worse, the bolt is one of the most common parts to have issues. Could be bad gas rings, extractor issues, broken bolt lugs, etc. Most issues are fixable but its always nice to have an extra bolt or two with you just in case. Rainier Arms has a couple of really nice bolts on sale right now. One is a black Manganese Phosphate & MP Inspected 9310 bolt. The other is basically the same thing but it’s Nickel Boron coated. If you need a good quality bolt you should definitely check these out while they’re on sale at the links below.
