We are please announce availability of our brand new compensator, the HEXCON0!


The HEXCON0, part of our HEXCON family of compesators, is the little brother to our HEXCON1, incorporating just a single port. The HEXCON0 is a perfect addition to a 16" barrel when you do not want to add too much length to the end of the barrel. It is just 1.75" long and weighs a mere 3 ounces so it is perfect for your lightweight build. While the compensation is not as profound as the HEXCON1, it still does a great job of reducing recoil and muzzle rise.

The HEXCON0 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 40RC 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.

ALLSTAR TACTICAL LLC. (Rochester, NY) has recently announced plans to move its headquarters into the town of Greece, NY. The new location will be approximately 1.4 miles from its current location in the City of Rochester.

More importantly, in addition to this move, Allstar Tactical has decided to reopen a retail showroom servicing the greater Rochester, NY area. This showroom, codenamed “The Bunker,” will be open from 11AM to 8PM, Tuesday through Saturday. They will offer the entire line of Allstar Tactical products, including Snake Oil Prime, in a retail venue, as well as products from select manufacturers specifically chosen by the Allstar Tactical Team.

“We are extremely excited to reopen a retail location. For the last three years, we have been unable to showcase our own products or have an easy way to work with our loyal, local customers. My team and I are ready to show you Western-NY’s premier boutique firearms shop.” – Mike Centola, CEO, Allstar Tactical

“The Bunker” at Allstar Tactical, will also have a classroom facility to be able to teach its own classes, such as Certified Armorers courses, NRA Range Safety Officer classes, and other basic gunsmithing classes. They will be able to host nationally-recognized trainers as well at the facility.

Allstar Tactical has enlisted the help of several consultants to bring this project to light. Glenn Rapp has been recruited as Lead Gunsmith and to manage all Allstar Tactical warranty repairs. Andy Dickason will be coming on to the team as General Manager and Retail Customer Service Specialist to help with the day to day operations of the retail side of Allstar Tactical.

Allstar Tactical is a manufacturer of small arms, specifically the AR-15/M16/M4 platform, with focus on innovation, improvement and engineering of new and improved parts and modifications. The company's target market is civilian and law enforcement sales, as well as sales to the various military branches.

NOVEMBER 10, 2015




ALLSTAR TACTICAL LLC. (Rochester, NY) has been chosen by the Rochester, NY Police Department’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team for their rifle refresh. Several officers from the team have supplied information to Allstar Tactical to determine the exact requirements and specifications for their duty rifles. Once the details were worked out, the team at Allstar Tactical designed an upper receiver to fit their exact specifications.

Several premium parts were chosen from the Allstar Tactical catalog such as their Enhanced Bolt Carrier System, MFKR handguard system and Upper receiver, among other things.

In addition to building the new upper receivers for their weapon systems, Allstar Tactical will be performing a complete refresh on the lower halves of their rifles. Due to the length of time in service of these rifles, many parts in the lower halves of these rifles need to be replaced. Allstar Tactical will replace worn parts in order to provide a completely refreshed weapon system. They will also be adding a few upgrades to the lower receivers as well, including their new MFHB heavy buffer system. These new rifle systems are in production right now and will be put into service before the year’s end.

“We are extremely honored to be working with the Rochester SWAT team. I was born and raised in this area and it feels great to be able to help out our local law enforcement whenever possible” – Mike Centola, CEO, Allstar Tactical

Allstar Tactical builds many different custom rifle configurations for both civilian and LE use. Departments are able to customize their rifles to suit their individual needs. At the same time, the team at Allstar Tactical can make sure the officers are getting the best equipment for the job and the best bang for their buck.

“Being a police officer is becoming ever more dangerous by the day especially for Swat team members. Our team needs the most effective reliable tools to meet danger head on. That is why we chose Allstar Tactical to refurbish, rebuild and enhance our service rifles. We also wanted to partner with a member of the local Rochester community in order to focus on accomplishing the mission of the RPD SWAT team; to save lives.” – Lt. Aaron Springer, Rochester Police Department

Allstar Tactical MFHB


We are happy to announce the availability of our MFHB system, a heavy buffer unlike any other one on the market. Reduce your recoil and make your rifle run smooth as butter, because we all  know smooth is fast. Likely the most overlooked upgrade on the AR15 platform, the recoil buffer plays a huge role in tuning the feel of the rifle. By adding weight to the buffer, more recoil is absorbed, which directly translates into your ability to keep the muzzle on target. 

Combine one of these with one of our amazing HEXCON1 compensators and you have your self one awesome, recoil-reducing package.


The MFHB is a precision CNC machined buffer replacement for your AR15/AR10 rifle. Available in “factory weights” of 4.5oz and 5.5oz this buffer will reduce the recoil and soften the shooting impulse of your rifle.

We have also made some improvements on the overall design of the mil-spec carbine buffer, obvious in the picture.

Through our custom shop program we can also tune this buffer to the exact weight of your needs. No other manufacturer does that.

These buffers have been in performance testing for nearly 4 years now and we’re finally ready for release.

Starting at just $38. 

MFHB Weight


These are in stock right now and available to ship immediately!

I'm sure by now you have all read about the 2nd Circuit Decision in NYSRPA v. CUOMO. It's unfortunate, but it's not over. Furthermore, after reading Gov. Cuomo's smug response to the decision, we have decided to offer a special 15% off sale on our SAFEMOD product through this weekend. Use coupon code THXCUOMO to get 15% off SAFEMODs and also get a FREE sticker as well as a FREE Allstar Tactical "Do You Even Pew Pew Pew Bro" sticker. Grab your SAFEMOD here.

The Allstar Tactical SAFEMOD is a 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.

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.
