F4 Defense is proud to announce the release of the F4-15 Enhanced Battle Rifle (EBR) chambered in 224 Valkyrie.  Some very bold statements were made last year concerning the performance of the Valkyrie; a cartridge based on a .30 Rem/6.8 SPC case necked down to accommodate a .224 projectile.

We rarely jump on “new fad” calibers, but we had to test and evaluate whether this cartridge could live up to the hype surrounding it.  We can confidently say it’s a damn good cartridge.  It’s not quite a .22 Grendel, but the fact that you can buy off the shelf ammunition is critical to those that don’t hand load.

After testing various twist rates and barrel lengths, optimized for the 90gr Sierra Match Kings and now with the long anticipated Hornady 88 Grain ELD Match ammunition; F4 Defense settled on a 20” 1×7 twist because it just plain works. The “need” for a tighter twist is simply not correct and we’ve proven it, it’s not surprising that you see manufacturers now jumping off the tight twist and going with a 7. A tighter twist than necessary lessens barrel life and can also restrict you from using a wide range of projectiles. Our F4 EBR consistently shot sub ½ MOA with pre-production Federal Gold Medal Match so we’re confident that Federal can work out the kinks and produce ammo at the same quality as the earlier lots. We know what it’s capable of and it’s truly impressive!

New Small Arms Manufacturer, F4 Defense to Launch at Triggrcon 2017

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

Leonardtown, Maryland. Veteran-owned F4 Defense, manufacturers of innovative small arms and accessories, will launch their new line of products at Triggrcon 2017 in Tacoma, Washington (July 27-30, 2017).

After two years of design, development and strenuous testing, F4 Defense will enter the firearms industry with their F4-15 rifle and Patent Pending Adaptive Rail System Handguard (ARS). “As veterans, competitive shooters and fierce patriots, we saw room for innovation in the small arms market and started this company out of a passion for firearms and our desire to help those who defend the laws of freedom,” says COO, Dave Fairfax.

New F4 Product Features:

F4-15 Rifle

The F4-15 is second to none aesthetically while maintaining the strength and structural integrity to endure the harshest of environments. The F4-15’s radical lines and recesses are strategically placed to cut weight and provide a streamlined design; making it lighter than a forged mil-spec receiver set. Features include: trigger creep adjustment, short throw safety, flared magwell, bolt catch and forward assist set screws, upper takedown tension adjustment and an oversized beveled trigger guard to accommodate shooters who wear gloves.

The F4 Adaptive Rail System (ARS) is a purpose-built rail combining the functionality of the M1913 Picatinny rail and the adaptability of Magpul’s® MLOK® system. The Patent Pending MLOK® and Picatinny hybrid system is directly integrated into the extruded profile of the rail—versus the bulky quad rail configuration. Accessories can be attached directly to the rail—eliminating the need for adapter rails.

F4 Defense is developing several additional products that include a Small Frame .308 (F4-10) and a 9mm Pistol Carbine (F4-P PCC) planned for release in the coming months. You can sign up for updates at www.f4defense.com or follow them on Facebook at facebook.com/f4defense.

You can see F4 Defense’s new line at Booth #810 at Triggrcon 2017.
