Plum AR from Echo Nine Three

You know Echo Nine Three for their work with AKs but few people realize that they also know their way around the AR-15. They have made AR-15 lowers for years. Their lowers are notable for their lack of over the top markings which I appreciate. Given all that background, it should come as no surprise that they are considering offering an AR-15, the Plum AR, that pays homage to their AK roots.

The Plum AR gets its name from the custom plum color Magpul furniture and accessories that mimic the purplish hues of the famous early Russian attempt at black polymer (so the legend goes) that is so well loved by AK shooters. All of the plum components are actually custom dyed to create the effect.

The features and specs are not set in stone. In fact, Echo Nine Three is soliciting advice on how the carbine should be configured on their Facebook page. As it stands now, it is build around a 14.5″ lightweight profile barrel with a 1 in 7″ twist and mid-length gas system. The muzzle device is permanently attached. The price can not be determined until the project is finalize but E93 is promising that the quality will be excellent and the price will be competitive.

The knife has had the choil and guard area of the of the original design ground away to form a smooth transition from handle to blade. The blade is slightly offset from the handle to form a sort of self guard. The handles are wood and thicker than the original handles. They also feature divets near the blade to make pinch grip cuts possible. The blade is uncoated and the sheath is leather.

Stay tuned for additional details.

Proctor Light Mount from Frank Proctor and Way of the Gun

It’s hard to imagine a more minimal, low-profile, offset light mount than the new PLM (Proctor Light Mount). This stainless steel mount is so low profile that the top of it’s rail interface sits flush with the top of the rail it is mounted on. You can actually fold your iron sights over the top of it.

It is designed specifically for use with the Streamlight Protac 1L but will also work with the Protac 2L and Surefire E-Series lights.

Check out the PLM at Way of the Gun.
