  1. Customer Experience: Retrofitting the Gibbz Arms Receiver to fit the Rock River LAR-47

    We had a very ingenious customer who bought one of our non reciprocating uppers to use on his Rock River LAR-47 lower only to discover the Gibbz Arms receiver is not compatible with the LAR-47 receiver. But Michael Bolton was able to machine the receiver to widen the opening of the upper to accept the AK mags. Thanks Michael Bolton for the pictures and inventiveness

  4. SB Tactical SBA3 Pistol Stabilizing Brace Review

    We all remember when “The SIG Brace” hit the market in 2013, forever revolutionizing what it meant to controllably wield a large pistol. Free of exclusivity restrictions, SB Tactical, creator of that original pistol stabilizing brace, has spent the last couple years innovating sleeker, lighter, cooler new designs. Their newest for the AR-15 platform: the SBA3. Much to my surprise, the SBA3 ships complete with a receiver extension (buffer tube). It’s a 7075 aluminum, five-position adjustable, standard mil-spec job. Yes, you read that right, it’s an actual carbine receiver extension rather than some weird “pistol” thing. Realizing that, I then understood why it’s included in the box: your pistol doesn’t have a carbine receiver extension on it. The best part? It’s adjustable! No longer are you and your range buddies stuck with a brace that’s too short or too long f

    The K-3 Armenian Avtomat is an AK bullpup configuration. Here’s how this oddball and related AK variants came to be. The advantage of the K-3 AK: Designed sometime prior to 1996, the K-3 AK bullpup is based on the standard AK-74 rifle. According to the bullpup’s designers, it’s cheaper, more accurate and has less recoil. Bullpup AKs were issued to Russian special forces. The Ukrainian version of the bullpup AK is the Vepr Avtomat.

    The K-3 is an Armenian Avtomat of the bullpup configuration. It was developed by the Defense Industry Department of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia in 1996. The K-3 bullpup is based on the standard AK-74 rifle and entered service with the Armenian Defense Force in 1999.

  10. 9.6x53mm Lancaster - New Russian Caliber

    During the International Military-Technical Forum ARMY-2018, Kalashnikov Concern has introduced a hunting variation of the SVD rifle called TG3. The main difference from the Tiger series of civilian SVD rifles is that the TG3 is chambered in the 9.6x53mm Lancaster caliber. The 9.6x53mm Lancaster is a relatively new Russian cartridge that is designed for oval bore (Lancaster rifling) firearms. The absence of distinct lands and grooves of the Lancaster rifling allows these firearms to qualify as smoothbore ones in Russia. Nevertheless, this is quite a potent cartridge providing a downrange performance comparable to rifles chambered in similar calibers.

    Can't wait and see if AR-15 manufacturers will start producing rifles and uppers in this caliber.
