Nordic Components NCT4 Revolutionary AR-15 Suppressor Shield Handguard System

Nordic Components NCT4 Suppressor Shield Handguard – Nordic Components announces the NCT4, an entirely new handguard system for short-barreled, suppressed AR-15s. This patent-pending design allows users to extend the length of their handguard when using a suppressor.

The Nordic Components NCT4 comes in two lengths, with either a 6.7″ or 9.5″ handguard to give maximum coverage on 7.5″ or 10.5/11.5″ barrels. The removable shield provides over 6″ of suppressor coverage and additional rail space. Both sections are fully M-LOK compatible and feature a seamless continuous top rail. Suppressor shield mounting is toolless, requiring only the push of a button to unlock the shield.

Fully compatible with standard AR15-pattern upper receivers and able to accommodate most suppressors, the Nordic Components NCT4 is the ultimate in protection, modularity, and mission-specificity for the suppressed short-barreled AR rifle.

“The current trend is for long handguards on AR-15 rifles, generally out to the end of the barrel. This allows more rail space and better mounting locations for accessories. Short-barreled rifles (SBRs) and AR pistols give up this option. However, Nordic Components set out to add a handguard extension when running SBR/Pistol AR-15s suppressed. The result is the NCT4 Suppressor Shield,” said Casey Knutson, Vice President at Nordic Components.

Nordic Components is currently taking pre-orders for summer delivery at

ARES 15 MCR Magazine Belt Fed AR15 Upper

Once again browsing Brownells “New Products” I happened across one of the most interesting and expensive AR-15 UPPER RECEIVERS I have ever seen. The ARES 15 MCR Magazine Belt Fed AR15 Upper Receiver. The ARES 15 MCR Magazine Belt Fed AR15 Upper Receiver is an AR15 upper capable of using standard AR-15 magazines or being belt fed. Did I mention “Full Auto” belt fed?

ARES 15 MCR Magazine Belt Fed AR15 Upper Description

ARES 15 MCR Magazine Belt Fed AR15 Upper Receiver allows you to convert your AR-15 or M16 from a standard, magazine fed rifle, into a multi-purpose belt-fed, that can also feed from a magazine. Simply attach the upper as you would any other, link up your ammunition and go to the range.

This unique upper receiver includes a Picatinny rail mounted to the top cover, as well as a Picatinny handguard.  16.25” quick change barrel features a chrome lined bore & chamber.  1-7 twist stabilizes standard, military ammunition, and ½-28 muzzle accepts standard muzzle devices.

Receiver is machined from 7075-T6 billet & features a Type III matte black anodized finish.  6-lug rotating bolt is more robust than a standard AR-15 bolt, and is designed for sustained fire roles.  Feed tray is black nitride steel for improved wear performance.  Bolt carrier is full-auto.  Upper utilizes M249 SAW links.  Upper weighs 7.45 lbs & has an OAL of 32.25”.

DANIEL DEFENSE 300 BLACKOUT AMMUNITION: It’s no secret we are big proponents of the 300 BLACKOUT caliber at We welcome every addition to the list of available 300 BLACKOUT AMMUNITION.

DANIEL DEFENSE which makes some of the finest AR rifles out there and has been a longtime favorite of Army Special Forces troops for years — just released its “First Choice” ammunition line in 300 AAC Blackout subsonic. The company has long made AR-pattern rifles in the silencer-equipped, SBR-optimized chambering and now adds its manufacturing acumen to bullets for its guns.

The new Daniel Defense 300BLK (7.62x35mm) subsonic ammunition is designed for target shooting and home defense. It is manufactured using the highest-quality components available, including durable brass cases and precision 220-grain Lapua- Scenar-L OTM bullets, the first choice for serious target-shooting competition, the company says.

“We’re passionate about the launch of our 300BLK ammo,” said Cindy Daniel, Vice President of Marketing. “It represents a whole new era for our brand—one where we can now ensure that the ammo that goes into our firearms is as high quality as the firearms themselves.”

The new Daniel Defense First Choice ammo will run about $50 for a box of 30 rounds. The company says it will be offering 5.56 and 7.62×39 rounds soon as well.


Grain: 220 Grain
Velocity (10.3″ barrel) 1036 fps
Velocity (16″ barrel) 1098 fps
Ballistic Coefficient: 0.324 (G7)
Quantity: 30/box

Ballistic Advantage 9mm AR15 Barrels


The Ballistic Advantage 9mm AR15 Barrels are machined from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel with a QPQ Corrosion Resistant Finish and 1/2-28 x .400 full profile threads. The barrels are available in 5.5 inch, 8 inch, 11 inch and 16″ lengths

  • Designed to work with both Colt/RR and Glock style AR builds.
  • Compatible with standard mil-spec uppers. There are also numerous dedicated 9mm upper options that work.
  • Requires the use of a unique magwell conversion (Colt/Rock River style) with UZI mags or a dedicated 9mm lower with Glock mags.
  • 9mm on an AR15 platform operates by blowback and does not need a gas block or gas tube.
  • Threaded 1/2×28 instead of 1/2×36 to give you greater versatility when choosing a suppressor.
  • Integrated feed ramp and barrel extension.
  • Since the “barrel extension” is an integral part of the barrel, the length stated is the true overall length. For example, an 11” 9mm barrel has the same outer dimensions/length as a 10.5” 5.56 barrel.
  • IMPORTANT: A standard 1/2×28 flash hider will not have enough clearance for a 9mm round to pass.
  • Before installing a muzzle device, ensure a 9mm round will drop freely through the bore.

You must use Ballistic Advantage 9mm AR15 Barrels less than 16″ in length with a lower receiver that is a Registered SBR, Machine Gun, or Pistol. Possession of a Ballistic Advantage 9mm AR15 Barrel less than 16″ inches in length  along with a Non-NFA lower receiver is Prohibited, except when installed on a Pistol configuration firearm.
