Vortakt Barrel Works Adds Fully Automated Manufacturing Cell

Thursday, February 25th, 2021

Groundbreaking technology expands production capacity in response to firearm industry demand

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (February 25, 2021) – Vortakt Barrel Works announced today that it is adding a fully automated manufacturing cell to expand its barrel blank production capacity, further improving the level of support offered to OEM firearm manufacturers.

“The market for firearms has seen incredible growth throughout 2020 and into 2021. Vortakt’s close working relationship with our sister division UNISIG allows us to rapidly expand our production volume to meet market demands. Adding this new automation cell is just the next step in our continued march toward unparalleled manufacturing excellence.” said Chad Weister, Division Manager of Vortakt Barrel Works.

The manufacturing cell is designed to improve upon the barrel blank manufacturing process and incorporates the following machines:

• Two UNISIG UNI-10-4-2i-450-CR Gundrills, each with 2 spindles to drill and ream barrel blanks, enabling all 4 spindles to run simultaneously.

• One UNISIG R-2A-1000 Button Rifling machine designed to function in tandem with the gun drilling and reaming operations.

• A Fanuc M-20iA Robot to transfer blanks from a drop-in feeder through each operation with engineered precision while also handling rifling tool exchange between each barrel blank, eliminating the need for any manual material handling.

With robotic automation driving the production process, the new manufacturing cell will be able to manufacture thirty barrels each hour, for a total capacity exceeding 3,600 barrels per week. The cell is designed to accommodate the most popular pistol and AR-15 barrel designs currently on the market.

Simply install any ¼” bit or socket into the Mini All-In-One as needed and tighten the fastener until the proper torque is achieved. A precise, graduated torque scale is laser etched on the side to indicate the torque value as it is applied. The settings marked on the side are 6 inch-pounds, 10 inch-pounds, 15 inch-pounds, 20 inch-pounds, and 25 inch-pounds. The Mini All-In-One can also be used to apply torque in between the specified settings by watching the inch-pounds indicator as torque is being applied.

TNVC RSP (Riser Stock Pouch) GEN. 2 Now Available!

Wednesday, February 17th, 2021

TNVC is proud to announce the release of the TNVC Riser Stock Pouch (RSP) Gen. 2, now in-stock and available!


Introduced in 2008 and one of TNVC’s first ever original products, the TNVC Riser Stock Pouch (RSP) was developed in response to the increased use of the M14 as a Battle Rifle (BR) and Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR) during the Global War on Terror.

While the TNVC RSP has continued to be extremely successful product over the last decade plus, we decided to revisit the Riser Stock Pouch to see if it was still the best product that it could be. While most of the changes we have made to the RSP Gen. 2 have been improvements in manufacturing and materials and should be transparent to users, the most obvious difference to most users will be the replacement of the bungee retention system on the MOD 0 to a flap design. We have also updated the available colorways, switching from the original Khaki and Olive Drab to Tan 499 (Coyote) and Ranger Green as well as the Multicam and Black options. Otherwise, the features and functions of the TNVC RSP Gen. 2 are almost identical to the original TNVC RSP, and is available in both left and right hand variants, as well as in MOD 0 and MOD 1 variants.

Though other, newer semi-automatic 7.62MM platforms have become increasingly popular in the years since the original TNVC RSP was developed, the M14 and it’s civilian counterpart, the M1A have nevertheless remained popular with many shooters, civilian enthusiasts and armed professionals alike who want to take advantage of a battle-proven 7.62MM semi-automatic platform for hardened targets and longer ranges where 5.56MM may not be sufficient. However, due to the traditional rifle stock format of the M14/M1A, using modern optics and mounts can present somewhat of a challenge, especially when trying to use them in conjunction with night vision systems like Clip-On Night Vision Devices (CNVDs) that need to be aligned to a ~1.5″ optical centerline in order to be properly used.

After surveying the various options available on the market, TNVC realized that “there must be a better way,” and developed the Riser Stock Pouch (RSP). Designed to mount directly to a standard M14/M1A butt stock, the RSP raises the shooter’s cheek weld to the proper height for a scoped rifle. The RSP is compatible with all M14/M1A scope mount systems including Vltor, Sadlak, Smith, A.R.M.S., KAC, Springfield, etc. It is user-adjustable to fit stocks with trap doors or recoil pads. The TNVC RSP is also flexible enough to be used with a variety of other traditional rifle stock designs, as well as other low-comb fixed stock designs like the H&K G3 and G33.


The TNVC RSP Gen. 2 MOD 0 features DMR-specific attributes such as a hidden range/DOPE card pocket that is quickly and easily referenced by the shooter and a stock mounted magazine pouch with a secondary retention band and flap closure that can fit a wide variety of magazines including the standard USGI 20-round magazine. The flap closure allows the pouch to be adapted to a wide-range of magazine types, and ensures that the magazine is safely retained and protected from foreign debris, especially when used in heavy brush or other adverse environmental conditions.

The TNVC RSP Gen. 2 MOD 1 features a zippered utility pouch replaces the magazine pouch of the MOD 0. This allows the MOD 1 to be better suited for other rifles with raised optic platforms such as bolt action rifles with raised rails. The utility pouch can hold various small mission essential items like batteries, strobes, cleaning supplies, etc.

The TNVC RSP Gen. 2 is a simple yet effective solution that allows you to modernize and greatly increase the capabilities of traditional stock and low-comb designs without spending hundreds of dollars on new chassis systems or stocks.

In stock and available to order now!

Monday, February 15th, 2021

The SENTRY™ Hexmag Carbon Fiber AR-15 Mag uses a proprietary blend of Carbon Fiber for a stronger, lighter AR-15 magazine.

Virginia Beach, Va. (February 2021) – After the acquisition of the Hexmag brand in 2017 SENTRY Products Group set out to refine and expand their magazine and on gun accessory line. The most recent advancement is SENTRY’s Carbon Fiber AR-15 magazine, made from a proprietary carbon fiber composite blended with our Polyhex2 polymer, offering exceptional durability and consistent performance. While Hexmag’s polymer magazines are known for exceptional reliability and resiliency, the introduction of Carbon Fiber significantly increases the overall strength and rigidity which further enhances performance. An added benefit to the end-user is that Carbon Fiber reduces the total weight by 20 percent over the standard magazine.

With the industry’s first tool-less takedown design, the magazines can be easily cleaned and maintained. A heat-treated stainless-steel spring eliminates corrosion and resists fatigue even while loaded for long periods of time. Customization can be done through Hexmag’s True-Riser system to create State compliant 10, 15, and 30-round configurations; and with the SENTRY HexID color identification system, the user can quickly identify caliber and ammo type through the coded safety system featuring high visibility followers and latch plate.

Available in black with an MSRP of $21.99 you can find this product through Midway, RSR, and the SENTRY’s website www.sentrytactical.com.
