It's GOOOOLD! New Luth-AR Titanium Nitride Coated (TiN) AR-15 BCG

Titanium nitride (TiN) coating is wear-resistant, inert, and most importantly for firearms – reduces friction. While TiN is most commonly found on cutting tools, punches, dies and injection mold components for improving tool life, it’s also used in the firearms industry for many of the same benefits but it’s often cited as making firearms withstand the normal wear between sliding firearms components. TiN coatings are also notable for being extremely thin compared to some other durability coating methods and thus it’s often used as a purely decorative finish as well. Luth-AR has just announced the introduction of their new TiN-coated complete AR-15 Bolt Carrier.

New Luth-AR Modular Trigger Assembly

Triggers for AR15 rifles: a simple yet so complex subject with as many opinions as there are people. Luth-AR now has a new single-stage drop-in trigger which is said to give a crisp, clean trigger break at around 3.5 lb. The drop-in functionality is something I really appreciate when building a rifle, as it saves me a lot of time and frustration. So far, I had no complaints or difference in feel between a drop-in trigger or one I installed all the parts in manually. The price for their new Modular Trigger Assembly is $149.95, which seems very competitive.

Luth-AR Announces Widebody Palm Handguard

Have you ever handled or fired an original M16 or an AR-15 with the classic original tri-form handguards? They have a certain ergonomic quality to them that some might argue we have lost as we evolved through the A2 style handguards, through quad rails to the more recent lightweight M-LOK and KeyMod forends. Well, Luth-AR have announced their Widebody Palm Handguard that looks like it melds that modern modularity with some of the old school ergonomics of the original M16 handguard. The wider base of the new handguard also provides a stable shooting platform when resting the forend on surfaces.
