AXTS WEAPON SYSTEMS is NOW RADIAN WEAPON SYSTEMS

In an effort to better align the brand with their ever-evolving products, AXTS Weapons Systems has launched their new name – Radian Weapons.
AXTS has gained popularity and acclaim with its ambidextrous Raptor charging handle, and with the recent release of its sub-MOA rifle, the MI-T556 (now called the Radian Model 1). The new name was designed to distinguish them as a leader in the production of high-end, evolved weapons systems.
“We are more than an accessories company, and Radian helps us tell that story,” said Radian Weapons’ CEO, Joshua Underwood.  “Continuous innovation and a hard driving work ethic are the core values we live by and have been the foundation for AXTS Weapons Systems. Radian Weapons will continue to build on this foundation, fulfilling our passion to bring the best performing products to our customers. A relentless pursuit of perfection in product design and world class manufacturing will be the standard of Radian Weapons.”
To accompany the launch of the new brand, Radian released a teaser video to showcase its new style set to the tune of its original manufacturing process. They are also giving away a Radian Model 1 Rifle paired with a Leupold Mark 6 3-18x44mm optic to celebrate the brand launch.

PROOF Research 308 AR Carbon Fiber Barrels

At PROOF Research we’re proving AR 308 carbon fiber wrapped rifle barrels aren’t just a lightweight alternative to traditional steel rifle barrels, but that they provide superior performance, including extreme accuracy, unprecedented durability and increased barrel life. By combining our unique manufacturing process with advanced technology composite materials and thermo-mechanical design principles, we’ve accomplished what others have failed to do in the past—match-grade carbon fiber rifle barrels that weigh a fraction of traditional steel rifle barrels while compromising nothing. They’re not just lighter—they’re better.

  • These carbon fiber-wrapped barrels provide a high-end alternative to traditional barrels while still maintaining extreme accuracy, performance and durability.
  • Match-grade accuracy
  • Improved heat dissipation for cooler and longer lasting barrels
  • No point-of-impact shift during high-volume fire
  • Reduced harmonic barrel vibration

Proof Research builds PR (308 AR, AR 308 barrels) with standard DPMS (TM) compatible barrel extensions and gas system lengths. Please check with the manufacturer of your rifle platform to see if these configurations are compatible.

Proof Research Recommends the JP Rifles High Pressure Bolt JPEB-308HP

JP Rifles JPEB-308HP

JP High Pressure EnhancedBolt™ Bolt Assembly
Caliber: .308 Win. caliber
Finish: Chromium Nitride

This bolt assembly is compatible with the JP LRP-07 and the DPMS LR-308 platforms (or clones thereof) only and cannot be used to replace bolts in the Armalite AR-10 platform (or clones thereof). This bolt uses a specialized firing pin that is not compatible with other bolts nor can it use standard .308 firing pins.

WARNING: The JP .308HP bolt does not allow for the use of excessive pressure, overloaded ammunition that exceeds SAAMI specifications. When evaluating new ammunition, always start on the low- to mid-range of any published load data and work up. A good indicator of working pressure is the primer retention on the subsequent loading of a case. A noticeable loss of primer pocket tension indicates that your ammunition has excessive pressure and has overworked the case.

About STAG ARMS

Stag Arms was founded in May 2003 with the goal to manufacture reliable, 100% American made, competitively priced mil-spec AR’s. Since then, Stag has quickly become a market leader and one of the largest firearms manufacturers in the United States.

We value our reputation as a customer focused company very strongly. Since our start, we have remained at the forefront of innovation – first, by offering both left and right hand AR’s, and also by designing new models based on customer demand and recommendations. Our customer service is second to none with the highest satisfaction rate in the industry. All of our rifles include an industry leading lifetime transferable warranty and an infinite shot guarantee on the barrel.

Unlike most other companies who purchase their parts from various different suppliers and simply just assemble the rifles, here at Stag Arms we manufacture 80% of our rifle parts in house. The only parts we don’t manufacture in house are the plastic pieces and some of the small springs, but these are still manufactured in the United States. This allows us to offer you the best rifle possible at a very competitive price.

Lancer L7AWM Magazine

Among AR-15 shooters the Magpul PMAG is the reigning king of popularity. The PMAG is inexpensive, looks great and is very reliable. Magpul also has the best marketing of any magazine manufacturer. That said among AR purists their are better (and much more expensive magazines). The HK and Lancer Systems L5 come to mind. That brings us to today’s welcome entry in to the 308 AR magazine field, the Lancer L7 Advanced Warfighter Magazine.

Lancer L5AWM and Lancer L7AWM are of an interesting design and construction. The magazine bodies are polymer with a steel insert for the feed lips. While this construction is not unique the polymer body characteristics are. The key difference is a flexible body. The flexible body allows the magazine to remain flexible and survive impacts and conditions that might disable AR magazine of steel, aluminum and other rigid construction materials.

When they set out to develop a tough and reliable .308 polymer magazine on the market, Lancer took engineering inspiration from the L5AWM (5.56) and the SIG Sauer MPX, combining the best advances of both to bring the Lancer L7AWM Magazine to life.
