Strike Industries 2017 Product Release

California-based Strike Industries has released several videos detailing new products the company is bringing to the AR15 accessories market. We previously covered the Viper PDW stock and the cold hammer forged barrels that come in 10.3 and 16 inches earlier. Apart from the stock and barrels, Strike is coming out with an enhanced trigger guards called the Cobra and Fang. These are made from billet aluminum and come in a number of colors. They don’t swing down like many Mil-Spec trigger guards with the pop of a forward plunger (originally conceived to allow access to the trigger with a winter glove/mitten). The Cobra and Fang have index points for trigger fingers, perforated slots in the bottom (possibly for drainage of debris), and most interestingly a sort of magazine guide in front. This might run into issues with different profile magazines that don’t accommodate this feature. They retail from $23.95 to $25.95 depending on finish.

Form meets function with the Strike Industries line of Aluminum trigger guards. Not only does the sculpted, billet aluminum trigger guard make your rifle stand out from the pack, it also provides real added value over the competition. The Cobra’s “hood” provides a hard index point off the trigger for safety and a convenient rest that is optimally placed for rapid re-engagement. The Fang feature from our popular polymer trigger guard is retained to help guide the magazine for faster, more consistent reloads.

Strike is coming out with these Ultra-Light takedown pins. This looks to be more for the competitor trying to get every gram dropped from their rifle as much as possible. These retail between $15.95 and $16.95 and come in a number of finishes.

Not pictured is Strike’s new muzzle brake and M-Lok handguard system. The muzzle brake is called the Warthog (spelling?), and is termed by Strike as a “High Efficiency, single chambered muzzle brake”. The company is going for a lower cost brake to compete. Next is the Strike Rail, with M-Lok on the 3,9,6, and 12 o’clock positions, with some segments of Picatinny, rails on top for front sights or other essential accessories. In addition, it has QD mounts on the 3 and 9 o’clock portions as well.

    My finger is hovering over the “buy” button for one of those PDW stocks….

    • Jared Vynn

      I’m waiting for the reviews and to see if any other PDW stocks come out.

      Also waiting to see how that buffer less system Evolution Weapon Systems has turns out.

      • I’d probably just order one and test it for myself. You can always return it.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Yeah, those proprietary BCG’s and buffers kinda make me nervous.

        • Flounder

          The buffer is proprietary here as well…

          But proprietary BCG’s are stupid and make me nervous as well.

        • Brett

          I believe the Viper stock and the Maxim Defense CQB stock use a standard BCG.

          • Strike Industries

            That is correct. Our system utilizes any standard BCG and allows you to one pin break down your rifle.

  • DMZ

    Hey yo this is all cool man but WHERE IS THEIR MP5 UPPER?

    • KestrelBike

      Ugh, upper, whyyyy.

      Need non-serialized, normal-human-hand MP5 lower with ambidextrous safety that doesn’t cost $600, first.

    • Strike Industries

      In the works and we are making progress. Look for more announcements coming soon!

  • JSmath

    The spelling for warthog is correct. Wart hog. Warthog.

  • Raptor Fred

    “High Efficiency, single chambered muzzle brake” is there a CFD vid or a slow mo vid proving that this comp even works in the Moderate Efficiency category? That Jeremy S dude from TTAG needs a round 3 muzzle brake test.

    Not gonna happen, but they will keep adding more pop-ups for the email list!
