VLTOR – VC-NRWL Muzzle Brake

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

VLTOR has announced a brand-new muzzle device, the VC_NRWL. In addition, they have partnered with famed firearms industry photographer Stickman and Ranier Arms to produce a version of the NRWL with Stickman laser engraving which will be available exclusively through Ranier for a committed period of time. The full release can be read below:

The VLTOR Weapon Systems VC-NRWL muzzle device gives a unique spin on utilizing gas and blast to help rifles function reliably as well as many other features. The muzzle device directs blast and sound forward and away from the shooter by pushing blast out in one direction. This makes the weapon more controllable and helps eliminate muzzle rise to keep the forend of the weapon on a level sight view.

While being an excellent muzzle device for any 5.56/.223 rifle, the VC-NRWL stands out in short barrel applications by allowing backpressure to be utilized for cycling as well as in situations of weak ammunition.

    LIPSEY’S AND VICKERS TACTICAL DELIVER THE TRIFECTA OF EXCLUSIVE GLOCK PISTOLS

    Thursday, September 15th, 2016

    vickers-black-left

    Baton Rouge, La.—Lipsey’s, a nationally renowned firearms distributor, and combat veteran Larry Vickers, the face of the tactical firearms industry, have launched the third iteration of the popular “Vicker’s GLOCK.”

    Beginning immediately, Lipsey’s is selling LAV serialized RTF2 framed GLOCK 17 and GLOCK 19 pistols in classic black. They come equipped with Wilson Combat sights, which now include an all new gold bead front. In addition, Larry Vickers again taps Tango Down to produce the extended mag release, slide catch, magazine base plates, grip plug with integral disassembly tool and allen wrench for rear sight adjustment.

    vickers-trio-1

    This new Vickers Tactical Lipsey’s Exclusive GLOCK bolsters the tactical color triangle that also includes grey and flat dark earth with some added extras. Larry Vickers had this to say about this latest venture, “The most requested color for the Vickers GLOCKs from Lipsey’s is black by a wide margin. After careful consideration, we decided to mount a gold bead front sight with an otherwise black pistol. The combination is striking to say the least.”

    vickers-gold-dot-1

    This third rendition of Lipsey’s Exclusive Vickers GLOCKs continues to be the distributor’s centerpiece of tactical offerings. Vice President and Product Development Manager Jason Cloessner was as eager to add classic black to the fold. “The LAV GLOCK series is one of our most requested products. Adding classic black to the lineup greatly enhanced the tactical color options that the Vickers GLOCK community was more than ready to support.”

    Located in Baton Rouge, Lipsey’s was originally formed as a wholesale hunting and fishing distributor in 1953. Today, the company leads the firearms industry in the collaboration and distribution of exclusive firearms. An authority in NFA regulations, Lipsey’s also offers a robust line of silencers, short barrel rifles and accessories. With a committed focus on relationships, Lipsey’s provides value and innovation to federally licensed dealers and the industry’s top manufacturers.

    Brownells Offers New, Exclusive AR-15 Front Sight From Battle Arms Development

    Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

    p_100019664_2

    Grinnell, Iowa – Brownells proudly offers a new AR-15 front sight, the Battle Arms Development ARCHITEK™, #100-019-664. Available exclusively from Brownells, the sight retails for $89.99.

    Designed for shooters who prefer using iron sights, the ARCHITEK™ simply clamps onto a standard AR-15 barrel between .735″ and .750″ in diameter, and extends the sight radius to the maximum length possible. It works on rifles without the traditional front sight tower gas block.

    It also compensates for any variances in free-float handguard design or installation, or flexing due to firing or sling pressure that could cause imperfect sight alignment. Precision machined from billet aluminum, the ARCHITEK™ is strong but weighs only 1.3 oz. to help keep the rifle balanced and fast-handling.

    “We are very pleased to offer our latest product, the ARCHITECK, exclusively through Brownells,” said George Huang, President/CEO of Battle Arms Development. “There is a long working history with Brownells since the early days of Battle Arms Development, and we are honored to be involved in this project.”

    The front sight post is thinner than the typical A2-style post and won’t obstruct targets at long ranges. Modeled after the AK-47 front post, the ARCHITEK™ front post allows adjustments with a set of standard pliers, or an AK-47 front sight tool.

    Merchandise Manager Paul Levy demonstrated the ARCHITEK™ in a video filmed at the Big Springs range complex.

    Customers can order an ARCHITEK™ front sight from Brownells.com, or call 800-741-0015.
