XS Sights new tools for AR maintenence

    XS sights is a well known company when it comes to sights for many of our guns. XS also has accessories and tools. Just released is the AR15 upper reciever armorers block and AR15 bore guide.

    The armorer’s block is universal and works for any AR no matter the caliber or size. Each block has an upper and lower fitting milled into it. This allows the user to just flip the block over to work on a .308 upper. The block also comes with two pins which locks the upper into the block. Of course the block fits into your vise to hold the upper securely. The MSRP is $75.00.

    From XS:
    The XS AR Upper Receiver Block is designed to allow the user to hold an AR-15/M4, AR-10, SR-25 or DPMS GII upper receiver in a bench mounted vise for assembly, modification and maintenance. This upper receiver armorer’s block will allow the gunsmith or enthusiast to assemble, modify, or maintain almost every AR pattern modern sporting rifle. While most blocks will only fit one specific style, the XS block provides the versatility need to work on any AR pattern upper receiver: AR-15, AR-10, SR25, or DMPS GII. This versatility, plus the reliability of an XS Sights Made in the USA 6061 T6 aluminum product, is a one size fits all solution. Will not work for ARs in .300 Win Mag or 12 ga.

    The second new product, the bore guide,is also universal fitting both 5.56 and .308 uppers. The bore guide keeps your cleaning jags centered within the bore preventing damage to your barrel. XS also had a port drilled which is accessible through the ejection port to apply lube or solvents directly onto your brush or patch. There are also two rubber rings which protects the inside of the upper from scratching when the bore guide is inserted. MSRP: $40.00


    From XS:
    The XS® Bore Guide keeps your cleaning rod centered while cleaning the bore to help preserve the accuracy of the rifle. While designed specifically for the DPMS GII, this bore guide will also work well for AR-15s in all calibers with diameters between 5.56 and 300 Blackout. CNC machined and hard anodized in Texas from 6061 T6 aluminum.
