MWG is selling Bulgaria manufactured 40 round magazines for the AR-15. They are polymer reinforced with steel. They cost $25.95.
The top selling rifle in the USA.
Earlier this month Ruger announced that they would be selling complete upper receivers for Ruger SR-556. The price difference between a full SR-556 rifle and the upper is just over $500. The Ruger SR-556 comes with an unexciting lower receiver with a standard M4-style [Read More…]
This time last year Bushmaster introduced the Bushmaster .308 ORC, an entry level AR-10-style rifle chambered in .308. This year they have expanded the .308 line and added the Bushmaster MOE.308 Mid-length (fitted with Magpul Original Equipment). Also added is the .308 [Read More…]
Last week I wrote about the upcoming ADCOR Defense BEAR. Shooting Illustrated has uploaded a very comprehensive video showing how the system works. One interesting feature is that the gas block is attached to the rail, rather than the barrel, and pulls in gas through a [Read More…]
I had the opportunity to try Surefire’s new 60 round and 100 round double stacked AR-15 magazines. The 100 is big and heavy (move over Saiga-12) but the 60 is not much longer than a standard 30 round magazine and the weight is not so bad. This is going to be a [Read More…]
This novel magazine design uses a series of magnets instead of a metal spring to apply upwards pressure to the magazine follower. A controversial topic in the gun world is whether or not the spring of a loaded magazine will become weaker over time if left loaded for [Read More…]
AXTS’s A-DAC is a nifty lower receiver for the AR-15. What differentiates it from standard mil-spec lower receivers is that the magazine release button, along with releasing the magazine, manipulates the bolt catch. Why would you want this feature? It makes [Read More…]
Vegas gun blogger “702″ has posted a review of the LAR Grizzly OPS-4 Upper Receiver with ambidextrous reciprocating side charging handles. I really like the look and can appreciate the utility of a left-side charging handle (I am right handed).
The Noreen Bad News is a semi-automatic rifle chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum. It is patterned after the AR-15 rifle and uses some AR parts such as the pistol grip, stock and trigger. Noreen is marketing the rifle as the ultimate patrol rifle: semi-automatic (faster than [Read More…]
Surefire beat Magpul to the market! David at Defense Review got an exclusive on the upcoming 60 and 100 round magazines from Surefire. The 100 rounder MAG5-100 looks far to big to be useful, but the 60 round MAG5-60 looks perfect for the M27 IAR.
The President of Slide Fire Solutions emailed me these photos of the final production SSAR-15 bumpfire stock. The previous photos I published were of a test sample without any texture applied. It looks like a lot of fun.
Jeremiah Cottle, President of Slide Fire Solutions, told me that there are no mechanical devices in the SSAR-15 bumpfire stock. As many of you suspected, the operator must supply forward muscular force on the rifle to fire on “auto”. I think This is why the [Read More…]
Slide Fire Solutions has developed a stock for the AR-15 that facilitates bumpfire shooting. It is reminicint of the ill fated Akins Accelerator that was initially approved by the BATFE but later deemed a full-auto device and banned. I am not sure quite how this works, [Read More…]
[ Bill Wilson of Wilson Combat wrote the following for the silencertalk.com forum. rsilvers, who runs Silencer Talk, gave me permission to repost it here. ] Got our first Wilson Combat 300 AAC BLACKOUTs together last Friday. Spent most of Sat and Sun on the range doing [Read More…]
Keen-eyed reader Lance spotted these photos on Wikipedia … They could be captured Colt Commando carbines, but given the condition that appear to be in, I think it is more likely that they have been purchasing Norinco CQ 5.56mm carbines. [ Many thanks to Lance for [Read More…]
Noveske Rifleworks has ceased selling 300 Fireball barrels and instead will be shipping .300 AAC BLK barrels for the AR-15. The barrels have an attractive stainless steel bead blast finish, a medium contour, 1:8″ twist, include an installed gas block and will be [Read More…]
