The New VooDoo Innovations Integral Direct Impingement Low Mass Carrier was designed to improve the Performance and Durability of a direct impingement carrier. The new Integral Carrier has an improved gas flow path with no impediments or shelves for carbon to deposit and build on which removes the potential for gas obstruction to seize the operation of the rifle. The VDI Integral DI Carrier eliminates the potential for carrier key separation due to carrier key screws stripping, fracturing, or becoming un-staked. This carrier is finished with our proprietary LifeCoat coatings to increase Lubricity and Surface Hardness. The 20% reduction in carrier weight decreases the reciprocating mass reducing felt recoil and increasing the Tune-Ability of the rifle for any application. All of our carriers are Full-Auto Rated, they’re made in the USA and come with a Life-Time Warranty.

Pistol Brace | New Ruling from the ATF

Posted by Adams Arms

Jun 25, 2014 12:33:00 PM

The question often comes up of what the difference is between an AR Pistol and a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR), and why one requires a tax stamp while the other does not. So we wrote an article on the differences between the two entitled "AR Pistol vs. SBR" where we discussed that an AR Pistol could not have a buttstock and is not intended to be fired from the shoulder. A recent ruling from the ATF has stated that a pistol brace, or stabilizing brace, used on a pistol is considered legal and would not cause the pistol to be reclassified as a SBR. Check out the transcribed video below posted by Mrgunsngear on YouTube that goes over the recent ruling and showcases the firing of a pistol using the stabilizing brace.
