FEDERAL ANNOUNCES AMERICAN EAGLE LINE OF SUPPRESSOR AMMUNITION
As suppressed firearms have gained popularity not only for deployment but for competition, hunting and range use in recent years, Federal Premium Ammunition has turned down the volume without sacrificing performance with its lineup of American Eagle® Suppressor ammunition. Specifically designed for use in suppressed firearms, these subsonic rounds (available in .22 LR, 9mm, .45 Auto and 300 AAC Blackout) are priced for volume shooting and they give users an even more accurate, economical and enjoyable round of competition or day at the range. Federal American Eagle Suppressor ammunition delivers superior accuracy, reliability and cleanliness in suppressed firearms, thanks to carefully selected propellants, bullet weights and profiles. The subsonic loading for the 9mm, 45 Auto, 300 Blackout and 22LR not only lend themselves to better noise reduction through the suppressor itself, they also reduce it by avoiding the ballistic crack inherent to supersonic loads. In addition, special clean-burning powders make it easy for shooters to clean their weapons—other conventional ammunition can cause severe fouling in suppressed firearms.

ASHBURY PRECISION ORDNANCE ADDS .408 AND .375 CHEYTAC CALIBERS
Ashbury Precision Ordnance (APO) Manufacturing has added two new calibers to its line of premium Asymmetric Warrior® (ASW) precision tactical rifles based on the new SABER® VX bolt action receiver. The SABER VX is Ashbury’s octagonal geometry precision manufactured bolt action receiver for super magnum .408 and .375 CheyTac calibers. The ASW-408 uses the latest innovation in the patented SABER®-FORSST® modular rifle chassis system (MRCS), an interlocking action/chassis design precision machined from aerospace grade aluminum alloy that requires no bedding and very little maintenance. ASW precision tactical rifles are comfortable to shoot and are purpose built to deliver high levels of consistent, down range accuracy now in calibers from .223 to 408CT. They feature tool-less ergonomic adjustability, heat/mirage management, rugged advanced materials construction, engineered accuracy enhancing design, and offer shooters considerably lower felt recoil especially with the big .375 and .408CT cartridges. The core of Ashbury’s ASW-408 platform is the precision CNC machined SABER VX bolt action receiver. This newly engineered octagonal geometry receiver is crafted to smoothly feed the long, powerful super magnum cartridges from a 7rd detachable box magazine. The fire control mechanism on the ASW-408 rifle is a fully adjustable two-stage trigger, set to a crisp 3 lbs. The ASW-408 is a rugged precision rifle platform designed to produce optimum accuracy with 395gr to 420gr projectiles and the ASW-375 with 325gr to 375gr projectiles. ASW barrel chambers and threaded muzzles are 2precisely machined to a straightness of less than <0.0002 of an inch, true to the center line of the barrel bore and VX receiver. ASW super magnum rifles use the exceptionally efficient EliteIron muzzle brake/suppressor adapter to manage recoil and employ the optional WindTalker sound suppressor. Either rifle may be ordered with the option of the APO Arklight muzzle brake to substantially reduce felt recoil to approximately the level of a .308 Win rifle without a muzzle brake.

MASTERPIECE ARMS REVEALS NEW BOLT ACTION SIDE FOLDING CHASSIS
MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles, Chassis Systems, Defender Pistols and Carbines, Suppressors and MPAR Rifles, proudly announces the availability of its new MPA BA SF Chassis – Side Folder, part of the MPA Bolt Action Chassis Systems product line. This unique chassis system provides a super precision platform for the Remington 700, Savage, Howa and a variety of custom actions. The MPA BA SF Chassis – Side Folder provides a world class chassis and v-bedding system that aids in increasing accuracy capabilities while adding tactical features to a rifle. It is the ideal platform to use for building a super precision rifle for long range competitions. The v-bedding system is configured to allow for the ability to glass bed the action and straight section of the barrel, if desired. The MPA BA SF Chassis – Side Folder is machined on MPA’s CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. The MPA produced buttstock includes an adjustable length of pull, recoil pad with height and cant adjustment, adjustable cheek riser and adjustable Monopod. The Monopod locks into vertical position and has a quick-height locating method, extending up to 5” with fine adjustment capabilities. When not in use, the Monopod tucks into the frame of the buttstock. The Monopod will also work at 60 degrees for when a shooter needs that “in between” height of the buttstock of the rifle in acquiring the target. It is coated in durable ceramic (Cerakote) and is available in a variety of colors. The upper night vision bridge provides a seat for a Picatinny rail with a matching rail mounted to the bottom of the chassis. The MPA BA SF Chassis comes with an A2 Pistol Grip, machined thumb notch, a handstop/barrier stop system (standard) and a built-in bubble level. User located side rails are available as an additional option. It also comes with a unique pocketing system that reduces weight and increases the structural integrity of the chassis. The side folding assembly is released by depressing a small, low profile button and locks in place folded against the shooter’s left side of the chassis body. For left handed shooters, the assembly can be reversed to allow the stock to fold to the right, opposite the bolt handle. The MPA Rotation Barricade stop has proven itself to be a “game changer” when used to engage barricade type states in long range competitions, locking the rifle into position for rock solid positional performance.

FREEDOM ORDNANCE RELEASES NEW 9MM BELT-FED UPPER FOR ARS & M-16S
Freedom Ordnance is now releasing their new FM-9 9mm Belt-Fed AR-15/M-16 Upper Receiver. The new upper offers a quick change barrel system that is rigid and accurate with no tools required to change barrels. You can literally switch barrels in seconds! The new upper uses Freedom Ordnance’s own proprietary disintegrating 9mm links that are designed especially for the 9mm cartridge, not modified military links. The upper is blow-back operated. The complete unit is machined from billet aluminum and ordnance grade steel. It is heat treated and features QPQ nitride finish on all steel parts to give the system extreme durability. The upper will drop on to any mil-spec AR-15 or M-16 lower receiver. A mag block is dropped into the mag well from the top before putting the upper on, this provides an attachment point for the belt bag and houses the ejector. Without the mag block in place, the unit will not function. This is the only “modification” that is done and no tools are required so M-16 lower owners don’t have to modify their precious lowers. It comes standard with the 16.5” barrel and the 11 inch barrel can be ordered as an option. It uses a supplied 150 round belt bag and also comes with 150 links. Extra links can be ordered in bags of 500 or 1000. Watch future issues of SAR for a test and review of this new belt-fed!
