BTO Weekly Update #40 (Edgar Sherman Grips, SOLGW Broadsword Sets, Huxwrx Ventum 556)

Edgar Sherman Design Granite and Pebble Grips

The Edgar Sherman Design Granite and Pebble Grips are revolutionary AR-pattern pistol grips that harness the power of advanced 3D printing technology to create unique shapes and textures that are impossible to achieve with traditional injection molding. These grips boast an ergonomic design that widens to fill the palm before tapering to a narrower point at the bottom, providing enhanced control and leverage. With three distinct texture options – Fine, Coarse, and Topo – users can choose the level of traction and feel that best suits their needs. The Fine texture offers a smoother finish, while the Coarse texture delivers aggressive traction, and the Topo texture falls somewhere in between with varied surface elevation. The grips are meticulously designed to provide an optimal grip angle for various shooting positions, accommodating a wide range of hand sizes and working seamlessly with or without gloves. 

Additionally, the design focuses on improving selector manipulation for both precision and rapid fire shooting. Each grip comes with high-quality hardware, including a 1″ 18-8 passivated stainless steel button head hex drive screw and a Belleville lock washer for vibration management. Proudly designed, made, and assembled in the United States, both the Granite and Pebble Grips are compatible with standard AR-pattern lower receivers, such as the AR15, M4, M16, AR10, M110, and SR25. The main difference between the two models is their size, with the Pebble Grip being a more compact version of the Granite Grip.

Huxwrx Safety Co Ventum 556

The New Huxwrx Ventum 556 suppressor, a highly anticipated addition to the Ventum series. This innovative suppressor brings HUB compatible Flow-Through® technology to 5.56 weapon systems, offering improved sound performance, toxic fume mitigation, and excellent repeatability. The Ventum 556 features a removable 3D-printed Grade 5 Titanium core and a 17-4 stainless steel housing, making it easily serviceable and durable. Fully-auto rated and compatible with various mounting systems such as Xeno, KeyMo, and ASR, this multi-caliber suppressor is versatile and well-suited for a wide range of platforms, including bolt and lever action, centerfire, submachine gun, bullpup, and AK-style firearms. The Flow-Through® design eliminates the need for significant modifications to the platform or gas system, while redirecting expanding gases away from the shooter’s face, eyes, and lungs. Both Ian and Chris were so impressed with the Ventum 556 that they each bought one for themselves.

SOLGW Broadsword 89 Receiver Set

Sons of Liberty Gun Works (SOLGW) has taken their popular BROADSWORD receiver set to the next level with the introduction of the BROADSWORD-89. This updated design focuses on enhancing the handguard lockup, making it even more robust than its predecessor. The upper receiver features relief cuts on the face, allowing for seamless integration with SOLGW’s M89/L89 handguards. This improved lockup significantly reduces rail flex, minimizing the impact of aggressive bipod and barricade loading on point of impact (POI) shift. The BROADSWORD-89 receivers retain the notable features that set them apart from standard forged receivers, such as reinforced upper receiver profile for increased stiffness, optimized grip tang position for improved ergonomics, a right-side bolt release for convenient reloading from prone positions, a forward-shifted forward assist for added clearance during left-handed charging handle manipulations, a significantly flared magazine well, and an integral, highly radiused trigger guard for enhanced comfort. With these carefully considered upgrades, the BROADSWORD-89 receiver set is poised to deliver unparalleled performance and reliability for discerning shooters.

Sons Of Liberty Gun Works 13.9 CHF Barrels and Angled QD

Sons of Liberty Gun Works (SOLGW) has developed the V2 Cold Hammer Forged profile barrels to meet the demands of their customers, focusing on improved accuracy while optimizing suppressed handling and performance. The V2 profile features increased chamber support, making these barrels better suited for modern configurations that often include muzzle-heavy accessories such as lights, lasers, and suppressors. By redistributing material to the rear of the barrel, the V2 profile helps offset the weight of accessories and enhances barrel stiffness, minimizing point of impact (POI) shifts between suppressed and unsuppressed use.

The V2 CHF barrels are crafted from 4150CMV steel and feature a 1:7 twist rate, a 5.56mm NATO chamber, and a .750″ gas journal with a deep dimple for secure gas block installation. The barrels undergo a QPQ finishing process for added durability and corrosion resistance. SOLGW offers the V2 profile in various lengths, including 10.5″, 11.5″, 12.5″, 13.9″, 14.5″, and 16″, catering to a wide range of build preferences and applications. It is important to note that due to the shortened gas journal length, fixed front sight bases are not compatible with the V2 profile barrels, and only low-profile gas blocks should be used. 

The Sons of Liberty Gun Works (SOLGW) Angled QD Mount is a cleverly designed accessory that maximizes the use of valuable rail space on your handguard. Crafted from durable 4140 steel and treated with QPQ for enhanced corrosion resistance, this mount allows you to securely attach your front sling QD swivel in a tight, tucked position beneath 12 o’clock mounted lasers. By utilizing the Angled QD Mount, you can make the most of the 10 and 2 o’clock MLOK positions on your handguard, ensuring a clean and efficient setup. This innovative product is a must-have for those seeking to optimize their rifle’s configuration without compromising on functionality or reliability.
