I got my first chance to shoot the Hodge Defense Systems AU-MOD 2 at FirstSpear’s Range Day. It’s very light and like my MOD 1 handles very well.

Lancer Releases One Piece Adaptive Magwell

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Back in November I got a chance to check out Lancer’s Adaptive Magwell. Initially developed as a two-piece item, Lancer Systems created a few one-piece models to demonstrate to the US Army as a simple add-on to existing mil-spec M4/16 rifles. Now, the one-piece variant is available as a production item. Installed with a cartridge tip, it’s a great way to incorporate a flared magwell into existing mil-spec weapons without having to replace the lower receiver. I’ve tried it and with minimal practice, you can easily insert a magazine without having to bring the weapon up into your workspace to take a look at what you are doing. Sure, the Luddites will say that you can get there with a standard magwell and they are right, but the flare makes it a lot easier. The Adaptive Magwell slides onto the rifle’s existing Magwell and detent at the rear of the Adaptive Magwell fits into the front of the trigger guard to hold it fast.

Component to Debut at SHOT Show 2015, Lancer Booth #7503

adaptive magwell one-piece

Quakertown, PA – January 13, 2015 – Lancer Systems LP, a leading advanced weapons and components engineering and manufacturing company, today announced the release of the one piece Adaptive Magwell, a simple, easy-to-install component engineered to significantly reduce reload times for law enforcement officers and Soldiers. The new magwell will debut at SHOT Show 2015 in Lancer’s booth, #7503.

With its funnel-like design, the one piece adaptive magwell increases the diameter of the magwell and trigger guard area. The component is designed to fit Mil spec 5.56 AR style rifles with winter trigger guards and requires no tools to install. The adaptive magwell is machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and weighs 0.05 lbs.

“A few seconds can make all of the difference for our military and law enforcement officers. The one piece adaptive magwell is a simple, cost effective tool that an officer or Soldier can quickly attach to his or her rifle without any tools to significantly reduce reload times,” explained Ty Weaver, director, advanced weapons & components, Lancer Systems.

Lancer is driving the weapon industry’s push for innovation through advanced technologies. The new adaptive magwell is engineered to reduce reload times, maximize reliability and exceed military standards. MSRP $99.99. Available March 2015.

BCM Standard 16″ C8 SFW (Special Forces Weapon) Upper Receiver Group

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Created at the request of Larry Vickers by Bravo Company, the BCM Standard 16″ C8 SFW (Special Forces Weapon) Upper Receiver Group was inspired by the Colt Canada C8 upper receiver used by several NATO SOF units.

You’re getting BCM quality here but in the same configuration as the Diemaco/Colt Canada C8 SFW. Additionally, the URG includes a removable Simon Sleeve (on front of barrel) used to mount a variety of accessories fielded by these units. That’s something you aren’t going to find in an off-the-shelf build.

IMG_0946.JPG

European SOF began to field the Diemaco/Colt Canada C8 slightly behind the USSOCOM adoption of the M4A1 in the 1990s. Throughout the war on terror, its use expanded. Currently, it is fielded to Canadian SOF, various British Special Operations units, Norwegian Special Operations, Dutch Military, and others.

Ares Armor Reacts (In Crayon) To Recent ATF Ruling Letter on 80% Lowers

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Ares Armor has been at odds with the BATFE for some time over the sale and manufacture of “80%” lower receivers for AR-style weapons. Most recently, they have contacted the The Honorable B. Todd Jones, Director Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to request clarification of ATF Ruling 2015-1 regarding the use of gunsmithing services or machine shop support in the transformation of “80%” lower receivers into finished firearms. Considering the additional issues raised by this most recent ATF Ruling, Ares Armor’s letter requesting clarification was certainly warranted. Particularly considering the ruling may contain tidbits that exonerate Ares Armor from any alleged wrongdoing (by the same BATFE that issued the ruling) in selling “80% complete” lower receivers. What really makes this one over the top, is the attached set of crayon drawings.

This is NOT a receiver

This is but one example from the graphic. Read the rest here. If you have any interest at all in this ongoing issue, we suggest you visit for the full request for clarification letter.

Leitner Wise Redesigns The Dust Cover

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

While many will debate the need for a dust cover, I find it a necessity for a fighting rifle. Over the years I’ve asked several friends in the AR business why no one has done anything with the dust cover. The answer has basically been that it’s a commodity part and there’s no upside to changing it. Although rare, I’ve seen a few ideas come out over the years and this time, Leitner Wise has taken a stab at it.

Manufactured from a single billet of aluminum, this dust cover is machined with inset edges so that it will fully seal the ejection port.

Who Needs a SIG Brace When There’s No Stock Needed? (I Kid, I Kid)

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

This video by TTAG’s a Nick Leghorn is the only thing left of the Halix “No Stock Needed” which offered a chin stop to absorb the recoil of an AR-pistol. When we initially mentioned it in 2012 it was quite the spectacle. Somewhere between then and now, the NSN and its maker Halix were cast upon the trash heap of bad ideas.

Later, something much better came along. The SIG SAUER stabilizing Brace or SB15 was designed to allow the disabled to enjoy an AR Pistol and its associated recoil as much as any other Red Blooded American. I for one applaud SIG’s efforts on behalf of disabled gun owners.

IMG_0678.JPG

I only mentioned the NSN, the most unfortunate of inventions, because another trainwreck has transpired in the form of an ATF Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch (FTISB) issued determination letter from November on the popular SB-15 stabilizing brace from SIG SAUER. Despite the fact that earlier this year the ATF issued a determination letter that stated that misusing an SB15 fitted to an AR Pistol by shouldering it akin to a rifle did not make the rifle an SBR, plenty of people have been sending in letters of their own regarding their particular pistol builds. Now, how silly is that? As a kid, I learned that if mom gave you the answer you wanted, don’t go asking dad the same question.

The question was asked again, for the umpteenth time. Of course, what do you think happened? This time, a determination letter came back that stated:

“if this device, un-modified or modified; is assembled to a pistol and used as a shoulder stock, thus designing or redesigning or making or remaking of a weapon design to be fired from the shoulder; this assembly would constitute the making of a “rifle” as defined in 18 U.S.C. Section 921(a)(7).”

Feel free to visit Prince Law for more info and a copy of the entire letter.

Although it’s most disconcerting that the ATF can arbitrarily change its opinion, an AR Pistol fitted with an SB15 has been the only option for those who cannot own SBRs. Unfortunately, some folks ignore the “Yes” and keep asking until they get a “No.” Now, that option has become a bit more restrictive and disabled gun owners may lose their ability to enjoy AR pistols.
