Phase 5 red latch

Phase 5 Weapon Systems introduced a variety of new color options for the most popular items in its broad line of AR parts. New color options include anodized red, gray and black. Among the parts offered in these colors are:

  • the ambidextrous Battle Latch charging handle,
  • the HexOne buffer tube,
  • the Hex-2 buffer tube,
  • the M-LOK attachments,
  • the Picatinny rail sections,
  • the pistol buffer tube,
  • the sloped quick disconnect end plate,
  • the winter trigger guard, and
  • the Universal Mini Stock.

The Universal Mini Stock is one of the company’s most recent additions to its line. Machined of 6061-T6 aluminum, it has a minimalist style to keep things lights.

Phase 5 red

I’ve used a variety of the products from Phase 5 Weapon Systems in the past, and I have liked their performance and durability. For example, I’ve got one of the company’s hexagon shaped buffer tubes on an AR pistol that works very well. Additionally, I’ve tried and liked ambidextrous the Battle Latch charging handle. I don’t know if the company is still building complete guns, but I ran one of the Phase 5 pistols for review and ammo testing, and it ran very well.

Phase 5 is based in California, and all of the products produced by the company are completely made in the United States of America. Parts are built with machines that are made in the USA and with materials sourced in the USA.

    That’s an awfully long thread on that buffer tube. And is that a PWS-like notch I see?

    There one piece extended bolt release is the best, no fiddling with bolt on units.
    Makes the others look like half ass ideas instead of a finished design.

    No lie, I want some of my rifle’s internals to be pink, not sure which ones yet, but once I get the money, something in that rifle is going pink!
