Nordic Components Shooter James Darst Posts Two Big Wins

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Waconia, Minnesota – Nordic shooter James Darst took home two big wins recently. He won the Open Division and took High Overall at Babes with Bullets 3-Gun Challenge and Zombies in the Heartland.

“These are big matches with some really tough competition. It’s great when everything comes together and I can have back to back wins like this,” Darst said. “My rifle of choice is a Nordic Components NC-15 chambered in .223 Wylde. It offers incredible “right out of the box” accuracy and reliability.”

“Zombies in the Heartland is one of my favorite matches to shoot and Babes with Bullets is now on my must shoot list,” said Darst. Babes with Bullets 3-Gun Challenge was held May 20-21 in Princeton, LA. This was the second annual running of a great match hosted by Jerry and Kay Miculek. Zombies in the Heartland was held June 2-4 in Grand Island, Nebraska. Steve Hornady and the Hornady crew put on another great match.

Nordic Components Introduces Revolutionary AR-15 Suppressor Shield Handguard System

Nordic Components NCT4

Waconia, Minnesota – Nordic Components announces the NCT4, an entirely new handguard system for short-barreled, suppressed AR-15s. This patent-pending design allows users to extend the length of their handguard when using a suppressor.

The NCT4 comes in two lengths, with either a 6.7″ or 9.5″ handguard to give maximum coverage on 7.5″ or 10.5/11.5″ barrels. The removable shield provides over 6″ of suppressor coverage and additional rail space. Both sections are fully M-LOK compatible and feature a seamless continuous top rail. Suppressor shield mounting is toolless, requiring only the push of a button to unlock the shield.

Fully compatible with standard AR15-pattern upper receivers and able to accommodate most suppressors, the NCT4 is the ultimate in protection, modularity, and mission-specificity for the suppressed short-barreled AR rifle.

“The current trend is for long handguards on AR-15 rifles, generally out to the end of the barrel. This allows more rail space and better mounting locations for accessories. Short-barreled rifles (SBRs) and AR pistols give up this option. However, Nordic Components set out to add a handguard extension when running SBR/Pistol AR-15s suppressed. The result is the NCT4 Suppressor Shield,” said Casey Knutson, Vice President at Nordic Components.

Nordic Components is currently taking pre-orders for summer delivery at
