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.

Since no one was asking, but everyone was obviously wondering, if our CorkScrew flash hider would be good at tenderizing meat, we had to make a video doing just that.

The steak was delicious in case you were wondering.

Just finished up the quick video on maintenance and lubrication of your AR15 bolt carrier group and changing handle. It's a quick 5 min rundown of what's needed to lubricate your bolt carrier group and charging handle. Many people way overlubricate their AR15 riles which is unnecessary and could attract dirt and debris. Starring Mike (inkedupgunfighter.com) wearing our "Don't Hate Me Cause I'm Black" shirt. (Grab one here: Don't Hate Me Cause I'm Black Shirt). Also features our own BeaverLube!!

Our CorkScrew Flash Hider is now available for purchase. The price is $60 MSRP and they will be shipping by mid next week. We are just waiting for packaging to show up! Check out the information on them below:

AT Corkscrew

 

Our second in-house designed muzzle device comes in the form of this crazy "CorkScrew" Flash Hider. These flash hiders feature 5 curved prongs to aid in speeding up the release of gas, preventing after-combustion, which causes flash. The ends of the prongs have also been chamfered into extremely sharp penetration devices which can be used as a impact device. The design is very effective in reducing the flash signature of the rifle. An additional feature of the curved designs is the ability for the muzzle device to self-tighten, reducing the need for higher torque tightening.

Our CorkScrew flash suppressors are precision machined from 4140 high-carbon-steel, heat-treated to 55RC, and then finished using Ferritic Nitrocarburizing. Ferritic Nitrocarburizing, also know as QPQ Nitride coating, raises the final hardness to 60+RC and gives it a nice satin black finish. They are threaded to the standard AR15 / M4 / M16 5.56 threads of 1/2-28 UNEF for easy installation.

When installing this muzzle brake, we include a crush washer for ease of install, but it is optional due to the auto-tightening nature of the flash suppressor. There is also no need to align or clock this flash hider.

 

 

We have also decided to reduce the price on our Delta Muzzle Brakes to $45. Grab them while they're hot!

AT Corkscrew

 

We are SUPER excited to announce a brand new flash hider! This is our Allstar Tactical Corkscrew Flash Hider. This crazy-looking, super-stabby flash hider is self-tightening, and provides a great option for impact striking while doing a great job at hiding flash. These are machined out of solid 4140 steel bar stock and then hardened to 40+RC. We then have them QPQ Nitride coated, raising the overall hardness to 60+RC. These muzzle brakes are currently out at nitride coating and we should have them back to us at the SHOT SHOW next week.

Can't wait to get these out to our colleagues and reviewers!!!

Mendon Zombie Run

We've had the opportunity to become sponsors of this year's Mendon Zombie Run. Last year, I ran in the event and Erica was a zombie role player. We had a great time and when they asked us to become sponsors this year, we thought it would be a great idea to get involved!

From their website:

THE RACE
There will be zombies. Their job is to chase you and eat you – avoid the zombies, save your health flags, and cross the finish line alive. Simple right? To really challenge our apocalyptic running skills, throughout the 5K obstacle race, there will be a series of man-made and natural obstacles in your way. Runners may choose to NOT complete an obstacle but will not be eligible for prizes.
Prior to the race, you will be given two (2) flags representing your health. Throughout the race, zombies will be after your flags and out to eat your brains. If you make it to the finish line with any remaining flags, congratulations you have survived the zombie apocalypse. Lose all your health flags and you become one of the undead yourself.

Use your speed and intact brains to cross the finish line "alive" with at least one flag remaining. If you finish with zero health flags, this means the zombies have successfully transformed you into the “undead”. All runners will begin at the starting line and make their way to the midway point where additional health flags can be found if you’re willing to take the risk. From there, runners will make their way back to the finish line where their fate will be determined.

Upon crossing the finishing line and entering the safe zone, please ensure that you return your health flags to the tent and retrieve your survival prizes. Once you’ve caught your breath and gathered any stray body parts, use your voucher to enjoy a delicious BBQ.

 

The registration fee is $55 and a portion of the proceeds will go towards charity. There will also be prizes awarded to survivors of the zombie apocalypse and additional contests may be announced prior to the race!!! Check out the link to the event here: Mendon Zombie Run.

If you have time this weekend, try to come out and run in the race! Afterwards, come hang out with us and enjoy the music and food and celebrate the good times! It is a great experience and we definitely encourage you to check it out!!!! We'll even be bringing some schwag to be giving away!
