SAFEMOD Mag Button

Introducing our in-house designed SAFEMOD™ mag button. This mag button will modify your AR15 to no longer accept a detachable magazine and permanently affix an AR15 magazine in place. It works by preventing the button from being depressed once the magazine is inserted into the rifle. The SAFEMOD™ is made from aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum alloy and Type II anodized in matte black.

Included with the SAFEMOD™ is a packet of epoxy to make the modification permanent. These are available for the reasonable price of $18, and for a limited time, you can add a second one for just $12 (2 for $30).

Installation is a snap. Just remove your old magazine release button and replace it with ours. Use the two included 18-8 stainless steel set screws and bottom them out into the button. Finally use the included epoxy to backfill in the holes. You now have an AR15 variant rifle that is no longer capable of accepting a detachable magazine.

SAFEMOD Mag Button

According to the NY SAFE ACT from the NYS Governor's website on the SAFE ACT, "Rifles requiring registration are: Semiautomatic rifles capable of receiving a detachable magazines." According to this definition of the law, but removing the capability of the rifle to receive "a detachable magazines" you no longer have to register the rifle and the banned features do not apply.

Remember, this is our interpretation of the law and we cannot be held responsible for a law enforcement official's misinterpretation of the law or the legality of this product. We are working diligently to get word from the NYS Troopers that will assure us that this modification does in fact make your rifle legal.

Mike Teaching Armorers Course

2-DAY CERTIFIED ARMORERS COURSE

The Allstar Tactical certified armorers course is a 2-Day Hands-On Intensive course covering the skills needed to assemble, diagnose and repair malfunctions, function test, disassembly and cleaning, and more. Our armorers course is a combination of lecture, and hands-on exercises in order to ensure every student becomes proficient. Upon completion of our course, students will be able to build and assemble, repair, and maintain the AR15/M4/M16 platform with proficiency. Graduates will receive a three-year certificate.

All tools and anything else necessary will be provided. Students will receive a training manual with great reference materials to refer back to if need be. Rifles can be provided to students with prior arrangements. We prefer that our students bring their own rifle platforms to get familiar with their configurations and modifications.

This course is very knowledge intensive so be prepared!

Allstar White AT15

We would like to start out by offering our sincere apologies for any kind of extreme delays over the last two years with our products. It has been a struggle between managing working captial, to getting our CNC mill up and running, to sourcing in-spec products. We wanted to let you all know how much we really appreciate your patience with us and have a special offer for you. If you would like to swap out products on your order towards something else that we may have in stock, we will offer you an additional 10% in store credit with your order towards the other products. That's a FREE 10%. We are upset at the lack of customer service that you all have received and are prepared to make it up to you however we feasibly can. I hope that this can start us back off on the right foot and we'd be happy to toss in some extra Allstar apparel to anyone taking advantage of this offer.

We will be working to fulfill all of the outstanding backorders and customer issues by year end. We would like to start off 2015 with a bang (no pun intended) and would love the support of our customers, friends and family!

Once again, we are sincerely sorry for all the events and delays that have transpired and we hope that you will continue to work with us in the future. We have many great new products coming out that are truly innovative and just plain work amazing. We encourage everyone to give them a try, check out our videos and more.

Regards,

HEXCON1 Compensator

We are proud to announce our brand new HEXCON1 Compensator!

As one of our flagship compensators, the HEXCON1 is a great option for competition, varmint hunting, and more. The HEXCON1 incorporates a unique design with staggered expansion chambers to aid in dissipation of the muzzle gasses. Additionally, it incorporates 3 top ports to virtually eliminate muzzle rise, helping you stay on target for that fast follow-up shot. The bottom of the HEXCON1 is solid to prevent any dust signature when shooting close to the ground or cover. This compensator was designed with the USPSA, 3-Gun, and competition shooters in mind, where seconds count. Currently available in .223/5.56 caliber.

 

HEXCON1 Compensator

The HEXCON1 is precision CNC machined from ultra-high-grade 416 stainless steel, which is the same material used in many of the high-precision barrels. It is then heat-treated to a minimum 35RC and finished in our shop to a matte sandblasted stainless look. Additionally we offer it with a standard Mil-Spec black oxide finish for those that prefer a black look or even a polished stainless.

Estimated arrival is early October! Order now to get a special gift when they come in!

Unfortunately, until further notice we have to cease all FFL Transfers and dispositions at our shop. We are in process of moving the license to our Ridgeway location and we will have to jump through a few hoops with the City of Rochester. If you have placed an order with us and chose pick up, please contact us to arrange something. We are also working closely with The Firing Pin in Bergen where you can pick up your lowers as well.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us!

There have been some concerns with the quality of our products, specifically our lower receivers, and we never officially addressed it. Due to a recent claim on social media that our BRAVO series billet lower receivers were out of spec, we have decided to make this official press release regarding the issue. We have taken the necessary steps with our legal counsel with regard to the slanderous and libelous claim of this individual and his company.  These practices are unethical and have no place in the firearms industry. 

Our BRAVO series billet lower receivers are not made in-house on our CNC machine. The are currently made for us at an outside machineshop. We had a MAJOR issue with supply through all of last year because of the craze in the firearms industry due to the various shootings that had occurred. It was at that point we decided to purchase our own CNC vertical mill. Unfortunately, we underestimated the amount of time necessary to design, set-up and run our own pieces on the machine, which is why we are currently still so far behind on some orders. We have been receiving a small supply of billet products from the old manufacturer and filling the oldest orders as fast as possible.

With regards to the claims that our BRAVO series lowers are out of spec, we assure you that we have not had even one complaint about the quality of these products. We have shipped over 100 of these out to customers with nothing but positive responses to the fit and finish of the lower receivers. Both of our fully automatic AT10 rifles are made using BRAVO series lowers and uppers. Those rifles have had thousands of rounds of full-auto fire through them with out a single issue.

We stand behind our products 100% and offer a limited lifetime warranty on everything we sell. We have tried to reach out to the customer who purportedly has the lower receiver that will not accept a receiver extension tube and have offered to swap it out with a replacement one. In addition, we are constantly striving for 100% satisfaction with our products and do our best to address any customer issues in a timely manner.

We also wanted to address our DELTA series forged lower receivers.

We actually had an issue with these and there were many claims to this out on the internet describing some of the issues that people were having. We also do not make our forged products in-house and outsourced the forged lowers to a separate company to machine them for us. With that, we mistakingly assumed that they would go through Q/A on their end. We received them and started to ship them as fast as possible due to how many orders we had waiting for them. There was never an issue in the past with the first 250 we had made.

The main issues with these lowers were the fact that the fire control group well was slightly undersized. This allowed only Mil-Spec standard trigger groups to work. Some wouldn't work at all, but the majority of them would still accept a Mil-Spec trigger group. They would not, however, accept any form of aftermarket trigger, two-stage, etc, which is completely unacceptable. The only other issue we found was that the markings were inconsistent in their depth, and some had cosmetic blemishes as well. We are currently offering these blemished lower receivers on our website at a large discount.

Unfortunately, some out-of-spec ones slipped through the cracks and were shipped out to customers. Very few of the customers contact us direct, but instead turned to voice their opinions on the Internet. It took us until sometime late 2013 to achieve a resolution with the shop that produced these for us. Unfortunately much of the damage to our reputation as a quality manufacturer was already done. For that, we are deeply sorry.

Again, as said above, we stand behind our products 100% and are offering anyone who has received a DELTA series forged lower that was out of spec, to contact us and we'll swap it out for a new one that is verified in-spec, as we would with any of our products. We want our customers to be happy with the products they have purchased from us and are trying to do whatever it takes to ensure they have a quality Allstar Tactical product.

We will be working towards producing our BRAVO series lowers and uppers on our own CNC machine and will hopefully have products to debut very shortly! Again, please don't hesistate to contact us directly if you ever have any issues with our products. We will do our absolute best to ensure your satisfaction.
