Primary Arms Advanced Micro Dot With Removable Base, Rotary Knob and 50k-Hour Battery Life

The newest Advanced Micro Dot from Primary Arms is now available. The new Advanced Micro Dot (MD-RB-AD) features a removable base with broad mount compatibility and 50K hour battery life. The biggest news is that this new version is activated and has its 11 intensity selected via a rotary knob rather than buttons.

From Primary Arms:

The Microdot, Removable Base, Advanced sight (MD-RB-AD) takes everything we learned from our best selling MD-ADS microdot and refines it a step further. MD-RB-AD features an estimated 50,000 hours of battery life from the included CR2032 battery, powering an ultra-sharp 2 MOA dot. Fully multicoated lenses and an ultra-low profile emitter ensure a clean sight picture with minimal lens tint. Eleven brightness settings are controlled by the rotary knob on the right side. The first two settings are compatible with night vision units and cannot be seen by the naked eye. The brightest settings are daylight bright. The illumination knob physically stops at “0” with the red dot turned off.

Covered by the Primary Arms lifetime warranty, MD-RB-AD is designed for use on heavy recoiling firearms such as shotguns. Constructed of 6061 aluminum throughout, MD-RB-AD features a Type II anodized matte black finish. Waterproofing is improved over previous models—for example, the turret caps are now aluminum instead of plastic and tighten down around the waterproofing O-rings until metal-to-metal contact with the scope body. When removed, the turret caps can be used to adjust windage and elevation.

MD-RB-AD comes with a removable 1913 MIL STD Picatinny base. With the base removed, the scope body is compatible with industry standard micro mount systems, enabling MD-RB-AD to be mounted correctly on a wide variety of firearms.

SmartCells® Cushioning Technology Takes Aim at Recoil Pads

CHEHALIS, WA – November 1 – SATECH, Inc, the creator of the patented SmartCells Cushioning Technology, announces an exciting adaptation of their technology into a recoil pad. Currently made for selected model lines of Tikka and Sako rifles, SmartCells Recoil Pads are produced in Chehalis WA and are available for sale as of November 1, 2017. SmartCells recoil pads are designed to provide significant recoil shock absorption and have been shown to effectively improve shooters’ comfort over many leading recoil pads in the market today.

“At SmartCells we are all about solving life’s painful problems” said Chad Lindstrom, VP of Marketing for SATECH, “Our Recoil Pad contains Patented SmartCells Cushioning on the inside, which is intentionally designed to resist bottoming out and absorb painful recoil forces. Those who have tested the SmartCells recoil pad report a significant reduction in felt recoil force, which has helped them improve gun control, extend shooting sessions and provide greater focus on their target.”

Testers of the new SmartCells recoil pad technology include G.I.A. Tactical of Australia.   According to David Giacosa, G.I.A. owner, “The SmartCells Recoil Pad not only outlasted the competition, but gave me greater confidence in my shooting session. Shooting .308 caliber ammunition, SmartCells outperformed my previous pad by allowing 23 shots downrange before  reaching the limit of discomfort, compared to only 18 rounds downrange with my previous aftermarket recoil pad. This is a game changer for me!” said David.

Do More. Shoot Smarter. Feel Good. With the SmartCells Advanced Recoil Pad.

Phase 5 Arm Brace Stops

SB Tactical’s Stabilizing Braces have been nothing short of game changing. If you have one, you know that they can rotate slightly on the receiver extension during use unless they are butted up directly against the rear of the receiver. If you want to mount the brace further back, there wasn’t much you could do to keep the brace from rotating… until now.

Phase 5 is now offering a line of Brace Stops. They offer two models – the ABS-SB15 for the SB-15 Brace and the ABS-M which fits several different SB Tactical Stabilizing Braces. Both models clamp to your pistol buffer tube (receiver extension) and prevent both forward and rotational movement of the brace. They also provide a QD sling mounting point.

V Seven 6.5 Creedmoor Match Barrels

The new V Seven Weapon Systems’ 20″ 6.5 Creedmoor Match Barrels are now available for your AR308 (or maybe AR6.5… I guess). The barrel has many of the same features found on other V7 barrels like 416R stainless steel construction, polygonal rifling, V7 Match Chamber, Melonite treated barrel extension, optional fluting, an included pinned gas block, and gas tube.


Forward Controls Design URF

The URF, or Upper Receiver Forward Controls Design, is now available. The new billet AR-15 upper is based on based on CMT’s URPR-1 7075 billet upper receiver and represents incremental improvements to the standard A3 upper.

FCD outlined the following design improvements:

1. Relief cuts on the section before rails start for better accessibility of a flip up BUIS’s sight stalk / flip up element.

2. Relief on the top of forward assist housing. The relief cut is specifically designed for ambi charging handle users. When the user uses his right fingers to pinch and grasp the CH’s right latch, the relief allows the index finger to reach down further, so the CH’s right latch is positioned in the middle of his finger pad, not the tip of it, for a more secure purchase, especially if the user has gloves on. When we use our left fingers to grab the charging handle’s left latch, there is nothing below the latch, but on an upper with forward assist, its housing stands in the way. The relief simply provides what room that can be spared on the FA housing so more of the user’s finger can have a positive purchase.

The FA housing relief is a simple broad stroke. In retrospect, we could have made its presence less shockingly obvious. The change we made is there to work, we didn’t give much thoughts to how it’d look, only that it’d create as much clearance as the FA housing can afford to give. Our design philosophy emphasizes utility, innovation and quality derived advantages, aesthetics is a super minority in this equation.
