Cry Havoc Takedown Kit (QRB Barrel Kit)

Cry Havoc Tactical takes their QRB (Quick Release Barrel) Upper Receiver Takedown Kit and scales it up for the big guns!
Designed for your AR 308 or 6.5 Creedmoor the QRB allows you to quickly detach the barrel giving you the ability to store or carry your rifle in a much-reduced profile and then when needed quickly reassemble the rifle while holding within 1 MOA.

Each Cry Havoc Takedown Kit contains complete instructions and all parts to convert your rifle or without drilling or any permanent modifications. Although they recommend installation be done by a Gunsmith, if you can install a barrel on an upper receiver, you can install this kit. Simple hand tools, an Armour’s wrench, and receiver block/vise are all that are needed. Returning your rifle or pistol back to stock is as easy as the installation.

The QRB main body is Hard Anodized Aluminum and the Stainless-Steel hooks, levers, star nut, and gas extension are finished in Black Nitride for maximum durability.

Available from Brownells

Once the QRB Kit is installed, it is amazingly quick to assemble your rifle or pistol without the worry of damaging your gas tube. The operator would simply lock the bolt back, insert the barrel extension into the receiver, rotate the barrel until the alignment pin enters the alignment hole, and then seat the barrel in place. Next, hook the two clips on the receiver plate and engage the levers to the closed position, never taking your hand off the pistol grip. Nothing to depress! Just drop the bolt and you are ready to fire… All in less than 6 seconds!

To remove the barrel assembly for storage, first, remove the magazine, lock the bolt back, check for an empty chamber, pull levers away from the handguard, remove hooks from the receiver plate and pull the barrel away from the receiver. Just that simple. No barrel rattling around in the handguard or gloves needed! Make sure to check out the videos in the Media Tab to see these steps happen in real-time. You will be amazed.

  •  The QRB Kit is only compatible with Free Float Hand Guards 2.2″ wide or less and will add 1.7″ to the length of the Hand Guard.
  • Purchase the correct kit by selecting the proper length gas tube to your barrels gas system length.

Cry Havoc Takedown Kit 308 QRB (308 AR Upper Receiver Takedown Kit)

From Cry Havoc Tactical

Our Cry Havoc Takedown Kit currently in use by the United States Air Force, utilizing the GAU-5A Aircrew Self Defense Weapon is the most compact and effective survival rifle for a downed Pilot. Used in the ACES II Ejection Seat Survival Kit, the GAU-5A has four magazines totaling 120 rounds, allowing a downed pilot enhanced protection. A QRB Kit-equipped AR-15 Carbine or Pistol gives you the smallest possible package with NO drilling or modifications to your existing AR Platforms! Easy ONE HAND operation. You want compact – You got it!

Now you can have The Ultimate Take Down Rifle! Our Patented 308 QRB System is designed to work on YOUR gas impingement DPMS/SR25 style rifle with a Free Float Hand Guard system 2.2″ wide or less and will add 1.7″ to the length of the Hand Guard. Now the Rifle System can break down to just the length of the barrel, meaning a 16″ 308 Carbine becomes two pieces under 17″ total, WITHOUT the worry of a full-size gas tube protruding beyond the barrel end, just waiting to be damaged!

Other possibilities available are the ability to do a 12.5″ pistol with a LAW Tactical folding “stabilizer” and have a 13″ 308 Package Pistol capable of firing 150-grain bullets at 2450 fps. Hard to match that with a 300 Blackout firing a 150 grain out a 16″+ barrel. This IS compact firepower!!! Watch your eyebrows! The United States Patent # 6829855

Aero Precision Breach Ambidextrous Charging Handle

Description:

The Aero Precision BREACH is a rugged, ambidextrous, precision-manufactured charging handle for the M5/AR308 platform. The BREACH’s design utilizes a reinforced 7075 aluminum bar that is up to the most demanding tasks. Its ambidextrous levers feature a patent-pending, dual spring system, that directs the force-of-use into the robust charging handle body. This allows the shooter to use a one-handed charging technique without compromising the part — a pitfall for traditional charging handles.

  • The small lever configuration provides a low-profile, easily gripped interface that is comfortable when slung and can be actuated effortlessly from either side of your rifle.
  • The large lever configuration provides an extended operating surface, perfect for a user with bigger hands, or someone who wants a larger surface for manipulation of the charging handle.

Features:

  • Ambidextrous Controls: Ergonomically designed 7075 Aluminum levers allow the user to easily charge their firearm with either hand while remaining low profile and comfortable when slung.
  • Robust Construction: Reduced chamfer angles on the 7075 Aluminum reinforced bar design provide a strong foundation for the BREACH that is resistant to rotational flex or breakage.
  • Patent-pending Lever Mechanism: Transfers force-of-use away from the roll pins and into the top/head portion of the reinforced bar protecting the charging handle in the most demanding circumstances.
  • Gas Deflection Shelf: Aligns with the upper receiver to redirect gas flow away from the user’s face when shooting suppressed.
  • Functional Design: It is not all just good looks. Stylistic cuts on the charging handle also help to clear stuck on carbon and debris from the upper receiver, while the spacer design seals and protects the lever mechanism from debris.

Additional Information:

  1. The Aero Precision BREACH is a rugged ambidextrous charging handle, perfect for your next build!
  2. The BREACH features a patent-pending, ambidextrous two-lever system allowing easy operation for right and left-handed shooters, utilizing a dual spring system for redundancy.
  3. The back of the BREACH charging handle features a wall that works to index the charging handle on the upper receiver as well as help redirect any gas blowback away from the shooter’s face when shooting suppressed.
  4. The body of the BREACH charging handle itself is thicker than traditional charging handles and features a reduced chamfer up top. This increases the durability of the part and makes for a more rugged charging handle design.
  5. Each BREACH charging handle features a load-bearing surface on the charging handlebar that maintains contact with the levers when the handle is being pulled. This takes the stress off the roll pins, traditionally a failure point on mil-spec charging handles.
  6. Available in a small lever, and large lever variant. The small lever provides a streamlined profile perfect for use in conjunction with a sling, while the large lever provides slightly more operating surface while taking steps to avoid becoming intrusive when used with a sling.
  7. The Aero Precision breach is available for both AR15 and M5/AR308.
