Very Nifty Strike Industries Cobra Fang Trigger Guard

Strike Industries have been hard at work for the past six months perfecting their new Cobra Fang Trigger Guard for AR-15 lower receivers. The Cobra Fang has three functions: it acts as a trigger guard, it provides a finger rest and best of all it acts as a magazine reload assist. The “fang” that protrudes from the front helps guide magazines for quicker reloads.




The Cobra Fang is made from nylon-reinforced polymer, weighs 0.2 oz and costs $10.50.

    I was thinking of ways to make my rifle look even more eviler. RUNIC MARKINGS!

    • Frosty_The_White_Man

      A life rune for “safe” and a death rune for “fire” would be pretty cool.

      • Ryan

        with “joy” for FA!

    • schizuki

      I was thinking the same thing. After looking at the logo, I thought, “Yeah, I’m going to go ahead and NOT put the SS-evocative branding on my rifle, thank you.”

  • simon

    whats up with that bolt? has it been drilled out to make it lighter?

    • weewoo

      Yes, another piece to make sure your AR15 is more expensive than the other guy’s.

      • Esh325

        I’m no expert, but I imagine altering the weight of the bolt can have consequences on the operating cycle.

        • gunslinger

          w/o reading the link, i would guess this is a way to “tweak” the gun to fire different. so this would probably need a different buffer. anything to make it…better…???

        • Joshua

          Its a competition BCG, when your running specific weight buffers and springs, adjustable gas blocks and handloaded ammo for that specific setup it does not affect reliability…but only with that setup.

    • sdelcegno

      lighter bolts are cor things like 3 gun competition, anything to tweak make respond faster.

    SO ? How much is it ?

    Man this is a new one, “nylon-reinforced polymer”. Anything to avoid saying it’s plastic?

    Well I’ve hears of glass-reinforced polymer, or carbon fiber for that matter. Since nylon is a polymer, this is the first time I’ve heard of nylon reinforcing itself, a sort of concrete-reinforced concrete….

    Hopefully this is just a typo, and not some marketing goon saying “we news to mention its reinforced, but its not so…”

    • Micki Mahoney

      Yet another “Yo Dawg I heard you like polymer,” meme in 3… 2… 1…

      • David

        The only thing I could think of was Kevlar or Zylon. Both have great tensile strengths (not like CF, but pretty good and a lot cheaper), and both are in the nylon family of chemicals.

        I have a feeling you’re right, though. It’s just injection molded plastic.

      There are lots of different types of plastic with a wide range of properties.

      Nylon has been used to reinforce gun parts ever since the first polymer-stocked gun, the famous Remington Nylon 66.

    Uh…cobra fang? Why not call it a mag guide trigger guard? Cobra fang, lol.

    Or better yet, call it a solution without a problem.

    • Hipster Gunsmith

      Same reason it’s called a Ford Mustang and not a Ford Car. Although I must admit, I find such naming applied to firearms entertaining. Street Sweeper and Annihilator come to mind. Colt Polar Bear anyone? I guess there’s already a Honey Badger.

  • hami

    That looks like a well thought out trigger guard. I see no reason not to buy one over existing extended trigger guards.

    On a side note, I’m sorry to see someone took a 12 gauge to your bolt carrier.

  • RickH

    It’s perfect!

  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    I can’t take anyone seriously who mounts their EOTech to their handguard.

  • Joe Grine

    FAIL. The name “Cobra Fang” sounds like it would appeal to the mall ninja crowd. Stick to something more generic.

  • Zius Patagus

    Cobra Fang…That’s awesomely awesome in an awesome kind of way. I’m buying one for my stepped up airsoft M4. 😉

  • Tet

    Not compatible with Magpul M3 mags…

  • GuruofGuns

    If you can’t hit a normal AR magwell I doubt this thing will help much, may as well stick an Arrendondo on it…..go big or go home.,2009&PID=fc25l4901gafsb&GID=
