Thordsen Customs Keyed Buffer Tube Hard Mount Kit


Thordsen Customs has just announced their new Keyed Buffer Tube Hard Mount Kit that raises the evolution of the AR/AK Pistol Cheek Rests to the next level by providing a stronger connection to the pistol, sleeker lines and 1.5 ounces of weight added to the rear of the pistol for increased balance in the absence of a traditional stock.


The Keyed Buffer Tube Hard Mount Kit utilizes a steel bracket, anti-rotation bridge and steel fasteners to connect a CAA or MFT saddle directly to the Throdsen Customs Keyed Buffer Tube, which coincidentally is the only Buffer Tube this will work with.

Daniel Defense Releases New Firearms and Keymod Rail System

The following is a press release from Daniel Defense.

Black Creek, GA- August 25, 2014- Daniel Defense, engineering and manufacturing the world’s finest firearms, precision rail systems and accessories, today announced new product releases: DDM4v11 Series Rifles, MK18 Pistol and 300 Blackout Pistol Variants.

DDM4v11 Series Rifle

 Daniel Defense introduces the DDM4v11 series of rifles with the newly designed SLiM Rail™ 15.0, their first rail system featuring the KeyMod attachment system.  “Our customers have been hounding us for a KeyMod rail”, laughs Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense Director of Marketing.  “Not only were we able to deliver, but we managed to reduce the weight.  You’ll be amazed at how light the V11 feels in hand.”  The V11 is available with the 16-inch Government, 16-inch Lightweight, or 18-inch Strength-to-Weight (S2W®) barrel.  The SLiM Rail™, which is an acronym for Slim Lightweight Modular, will be available for individual sale at a later date.

Simultaneously, Daniel Defense is releasing the MK18 Pistol and 300 Blackout Pistol.  A recent ATF ruling making it easier to possess an AR pistol, and extended approval times for NFA tax stamps, has driven demand for the pistol variant.  The MK18 Pistol is very similar to the MK18 Factory SBR—popular in the law enforcement and special operations communities—with a 10.3” barrel that is classified as an SBR (short-barreled rifle) under the National Firearms Act.  The 300 Blackout Pistol, chambered in 300 AAC Blackout, also comes with a 10.3” barrel.  Both pistols are designed with a 1.15” Diameter Pistol Receiver Extension opposed to a Mil-Spec receiver extension and buttstock and are not NFA regulated items.
