V Seven Weapons Helios Muzzle Device

Krinkov style muzzle brakes are designed to direct concussion forward and away from the shooter while also providing some muzzle rise mitigation. However, many of them also turn your carbine into a nose-heavy fence post due to their weight.

The new Helios Muzzle Device from V Seven Weapons is constructed from titanium so it weighs considerably less than what similar steel devices weigh at just 2.5 ounces. It adds 2.2 inches to the over all length of the barrel and has a 1.25″ outer diameter so it can fit under most extended handguards.

The Helios is available in black or silver finishes and 1/2×28 or 5/8×24 thread pitches. The 5/8×24 version will accommodate projectiles up to .338″ in diameter.

V Seven Weapons AR-15 GI Lower

V Seven Weapons just took the wraps off their new AR-15 GI Lower. This forged lower incorporates features that are typically only found on billet lowers and adds a bit of V7 flair.


The lower starts with a 7075-T6 forging which is then machined to final dimensions. V7 finishes the lowers with a typical hard anodizing but takes it a step further by adding a coating of KG Gun Kote. The front of the mag well is textured for those who prefer a magwell grip (these cuts also lighten the lower). The magwell opening is flared.


V7 could resist doing what V7 does by making this lower just a touch lighter. You a lightening cut on the grip tang. The lower weighs 8 ounces overall which is .5-.7 ounces less than a typical GI lower. That isn’t much of a difference but it is something. V7 has stated that they have plans for an even lighter lower to be released around Christmas time of this year.

Check out the new V Seven Weapons AR-15 GI Lower. It is currently available at special introductory pricing.


V7 Weapon Systems Hybrid 3 Gun/Sport Selectors

V7 Weapon Systems makes a wide variety of AR-15 selectors and that list is now longer by one. Their new Hybrid 3 Gun/Sport Selectors bring the same lightweight you expect from V7 but with the massive, hard to miss levers you expect for a competition gun.

The skeletonized 7075 T6 aluminum levers offer a plenty of surface area so you can manipulate the selector quickly. The selector core is machined from heat treated and hardened grade 5 titanium. The Hybrid 3 Gun/Sport Selectors are available in both a right hand (8.4 grams) and ambi style (10.5 grams).

V7 Titanium QD Endplate

The new V7 Titanium QD Endplate is a drop in replacement for the standard endplate. It provides a QD sling swivel socket that can be used with single point or two point sling configurations. It also happens to be machined from titanium which makes it about 50% lighter (7.2 grams) than the standard steel endplate and gives your AR something in common with the SR-71 “Blackbird”… you know, because it had some titanium too. There is no escaping the fact that titanium is cool.

V7 Weapon Systems Titanium KMR Barrel Nut

V7 Weapon Systems is just showing off. They have made several lightweight AR-15 parts but those were lighter versions of standard parts. Their latest is a lighter barrel nut for a well known free-float rail with the main selling point of already being the lightest on the market!


Their new Titanium KMR Barrel Nut is a drop-in replacement for the BCM KMR rail and weighs just 26 grams (a roughly 19 gram savings over the standard KMR nut). It is made from grade 5 titanium with a raw or an ion bond black finish.

For your convenience, I will go ahead and get the crotchety comments out of the way. Men used to be men… jabber, jabber, jabber… it’s only a few grams lighter… jabber, jabber… this lightweight stuff has gotten out of control… jabber, jabber, jabber… too expensive… jabber, jabber.

I suspect they wouldn’t even care if they didn’t sell a single one of these (I doubt that will be the case) because, like I said, this is just showing off.

V7 SCAR Selector Levers

V7 Weapon Systems has turned their attention to a new rifle – the FN SCAR. Their new V7 SCAR Selector Levers come as a set with a long and short lever.You would typically install the short lever on your non-dominant side so that it reduces the likelihood of interfering with your dominant side trigger finger.

They are machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized. There are fairly aggressive steps machined into the sides of the levers to ensure positive grip and, unsurprisingly if you are familiar with V7, excess material has been machined away to keep the levers as light as possible.

Check out the new V7 SCAR Selector Levers.


V7 Weapon Systems Ultra-Light AR-10 Port Door

V7 AR10 port door

V7 Weapon Systems is continuing their crusade against unnecessary ounces and they have turned their attention toward a new rifle – the AR-10. Their new V7 Ultra-Light AR-10 Port Door weighs in at 9 grams which is about 45% lighter than a typical AR-10 port door. It is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized. It certainly doesn’t shed much weight on its own, but I suspect we will start to see more and more lightweight AR-10 parts from V7 that could be part of an overall weight reduction strategy.
