5.11 Tactical Shock Rifle Case: The 36-inch-long Shock Rifle Case provides protection for your AR with a rugged 600D polyester outer shell that repels moisture. The padded 300D polyester interior features a retention system so your weapon won’t shift in transit. The case features adjustable shoulder straps for backpack mode, or the straps can be stowed when using the carry handles. The Shock Rifle Case is available in Sandstone, DoubleTap and black.
Alexander Arms High-Capacity 6.5 Grendel Magazine: Always an innovator with the 6.5 Grendel cartridge, Alexander Arms offers a high-performance, 24-round magazine made of heavy-gauge steel. The magazine features anti-tilt and self-leveling followers, and the magazine’s protective coating has been put through the rigors of the military’s salt spray testing for 96 hours straight. The magazine spring uses upgraded spring steel for increased reliability and feeding.
Barrett REC7 6.8 Gen 2 Magazine: Finding a reliable, high-capacity 6.8 SPC magazine is no longer an issue since the Barrett REC7 6.8 Gen 2 magazine was designed to deliver optimum performance and a 30-round capacity. The magazine is constructed of steel, so it can endure hard use and is also corrosion resistant.
Caldwell Pic Rail Go-Pro Mount: Need proof to support your bragging rights? The Pic Rail Go-Pro Mount allows you to attach a Go-Pro camera to a weapon’s Picatinny rail so you can capture all the action. The quick-detach mount allows the camera bracket to be removed for carrying or transport. The adjustable brackets allow you to get the angle you want and quickly lock the camera in place.
Chamber-View AR-15: Safety is important, and the Chamber-View AR-15 Type is a large, bright orange safety block made of 100-percent silicone that instantly makes bystanders aware of your AR’s status. The flexible safety block is easy to insert into the ejection port of any .223/5.56mm or 6.8 SPC AR rifle or carbine.
Diamondhead T-Brake Muzzle Compensator: The T-Brake is designed to work with 5.56mm and 7.62mm barrels to significantly reduce muzzle climb and felt recoil. Made of hardened steel, the T-Brake uses a triangular shape to create more surface area on the bottom portion of the compensator to apply downward pressure and reduce muzzle climb.
Enfield Rifle Company Lower In A Jar: All the parts required to make a lower sing are packaged in this jar—trigger, magazine release, selector lever, pistol grip, springs and more. Enfield Rifle Company also upgrades the included trigger to take out the grainy creep that can be found in other parts kits. Expect the single-stage trigger to have a 2- to 3-pound pull weight.
GemTech Suppressed Bolt Carrier: The drop-in replacement Suppressed Bolt Carrier is designed to increase the reliability of suppressed AR-platform firearms. The adjustable bolt carrier allows operators to choose between suppressed and unsuppressed settings without any permanent modifications to the firearm. Added benefits include a reduction in carrier speed and less felt recoil, bringing the cyclic rate of the suppressed rifle down to unsuppressed levels.
Hazard 4 Overwatch Pack: The Overwatch roll-pack is a well-sized backpack suitable for transporting a lot of different gear, including a rifle. The pack features a thermoformed back panel, a thermoformed cap to protect sunglasses, large organizer pockets, a removable, MOLLE-compatible belt and sleeves that unroll to allow for the vertical carry of rifles of various lengths.
Hogue Contour TriggerGuard: Hogue uses G10 material to create an oversized triggerguard for AR-15 rifles and carbines. The triggerguard replaces a standard triggerguard in minutes with its easy-to-install design. The unit’s oversized bow allows more room when operating a weapon with gloved hands. These triggerguards are available in dark earth, red lava, blue lava, pink lava, solid black and green.
Lancer Adaptive Magwell: Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, the Adaptive Magwell is designed to fit mil-spec 5.56mm AR weapons. This easy-to-install unit increases the diameter of the magazine well and thereby increases the speed with which the weapon can be reloaded.
Magpul PMAG D-60: Feed the machine with this 60-round, 5.56mm PMAG D-60 magazine for AR-15/M4-compatible weapons. The polymer PMAG D-60 drum magazine is durable, lightweight and reliable. The drum allows for prone firing and features a rear window for instant capacity indication.
Present Arms Gunner’s Mount: The Gunner’s Mount is a convenient platform for maintaining, assembling and disassembling AR-style rifles as well as other weapons. The unit can be bolted to a workbench, and the numerous pockets help keep small parts stowed. Made of non-marring synthetic polymer, a magazine block allows an AR to be mounted and secured for a variety of maintenance and cleaning procedures.
Quick Fire QF600 AR-15 Rifle Case: This hard-sided, double-walled case comes with interlocking fingers at the parting line to help stabilize the case if dropped. The interior features military-grade, chemical-resistant, closed-cell foam with a universal cavity cut out to fit an AR rifle or carbine. Additional cutouts accommodate magazines and other gear. The case has two molded-in padlock holes for security. Measuring 43.5 by 18 by 7 inches, the case weighs 18 pounds.
SecureIt Tactical Fast Box Harrier: Bolt the Fast Box Harrier to the inside of your vehicle’s trunk or the bed of your truck to create a hidden storage space for your AR. The size of the unit is 40 by 6.5 by 13 inches, making it well suited for an AR-15 equipped with an optic and a 30-round magazine. Made of all-welded steel with a protective pad inside, the Fast Box Harrier uses an electronic lock with a key override along with a three-point locking system to make sure your weapon stays secure.
SureFire 3P Eliminator 556: The three-prong 3P Eliminator 556 flash suppressor is a patent-pending design that reduces muzzle flash typically greater than 99 percent when compared to a plain muzzle. The unit fits M4-style weapons and variants with 1/2×28 muzzle threads. Made from stainless steel bar stock, the robust tines are built to withstand the rigors of combat and whatever environmental abuse it may encounter along the way. MSRP: $59.
Tac-Con 3MR Trigger Assembly: The 3MR trigger offers three modes of fire control: safe, semi-auto and Tac-Con’s patented assisted reset mode, which offers the fastest reset possible. In semi-auto and “reset mode” positions, the trigger has a non-adjustable, 4.5-pound pull. This is a drop-in unit for ARs with right-handed, left-handed or ambidextrous selectors.
TNW Firearms Gas Piston System Kit: Retrofitting your AR’s direct gas impingement system to a piston-operated system is simple with this kit for standard carbine-length ARs. The kit includes all the parts and instructions to convert an AR to a piston system so it will have less carbon buildup on the bolt carrier assembly and internal moving parts.
UTG Combat Operation RC Series Gun Case: Whether you carry it like a pack or by the handles, the Combat Operation RC Series Gun Case is well padded with over 2.6 inches of high-density foam inside that can hold up to two rifles at a time. Numerous large pockets and a web MOLLE system allow you to store additional gear. The case’s overall length is 42 inches, and it is available in black, OD green, Flat Dark Earth and Army digital camo.
The VooDoo Innovations LifeCoat Low Mass Bolt Carrier is 20-percent lighter than a standard bolt carrier, which translates to less reciprocal mass, thus reducing felt recoil. The bolt carrier is full-auto rated on direct impingement systems. It is compatible with mil-spec and commercial upper receivers and their associated components.
Support gear is comprised of small details like triggers, charging handles, cases and sling swivel adapters.
These are the parts you don’t normally think of when setting up an AR, but they can help you run your carbine or rifle better, whether you shoot competitively, hunt or use an AR for home defense.
