Catalyst Arms Introduces A True Precision Rifle Handguard For AR-15 and Ruger Precision Rifles

Beaverton, OR – Catalyst Arms, LLC, a firearms accessory company, has introduced Fast Track™, a true precision rifle handguard for AR-15s and the Ruger Precision Rifle.  Designed for precision rifle competitors and long-range shooters, Fast Track™ has the features they have asked for in a handguard such as an integrated Arca Swiss style rail, flat sides and bottom, a smooth top for greater scope clearance, M-LOK® slots and ease of installation.

Fast Track™ has a full-length Arca Swiss style rail the full length of the bottom of the handguard.  This provides maximum versatility for mounting directly to tripods or attaching accessories that can be quickly moved forward or backward as the shooting situation requires.  The flat sides and bottom make the Fast Track™ much more stable than round handguards when shooting from bags, barricades, packs or other surfaces. A low-profile top provides maximum scope clearance for mounting optics as close to the bore as possible.  M-LOK® slots run the length of the handguard at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions for mounting other rails or accessories. For ease of installation Fast Track™ attaches to both AR-15s and Ruger Precision Rifles via a two barrel nut system that is easy to align and torque to proper specification.  


Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and hard coat anodized black, the Fast Track™ is lightweight and has a slim profile that is easy to hold when necessary and maneuver into shooting position.  The Catalyst Arms Fast Track™ is available for shipment February 1, 2019 with an MSRP of $219.00.

New Mounting System for Ruger PC Carbine from Catalyst Arms

By Mon Berenguer

Whenever Ruger makes a new rifle, you can bet there will be a slew of innovative companies lined up to create a dizzying and impressive array of aftermarket accessories. This is true for Ruger’s famous 10/22, and it also applies to the new Ruger PC-9 Carbine. Established in 2017 by Kevin Haight and Matt Foster, Catalyst Arms LLC remains a small aftermarket accessories manufacturer based in Portland, Oregon, and just released their Hardpoint Mounting System for the Ruger PC-9 Carbine. This mounting system is a two-piece set, consisting of an M-LOK adapter that attaches to the PC-9’s accessory rail under the barrel, and of a quick-install buttstock basepad with QD sling mounts on either side. What the M-LOK adapter simply and easily does is attach to the single accessory rail under the barrel, and multiplies the PC-9’s accessory attachment capability threefold. Meanwhile, the basepad enables the rifle to easily attach a sling on the QD mounts for use by left or right-handed shooters.

The first of two components that comprise Catalyst Arms’
Hardpoint Mounting System is the M-LOK adapter.
When attached to the lone underbarrel rail, the PC-9’s
accessorization capacity is increased threefold.
Note that the three rail slots are sold separately

The second component is the basepad. Note the peg where the QD sling mount attaches

Given the hundreds, if not thousands of different lights, lasers, bipods and other accessories available, no doubt PC-9 owners will give their rifles more functionality and a more tacti-cool appearance. Proudly made in the USA, Catalyst Arms’ Hardpoint Mounting System is machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum and retails for $89.95. So if you owned a Ruger PC-9 Carbine, would you buy this system and what manner of add-ons will you attach?

The Ruger PC-9 (shown here with a suppressor attached) was featured in this year’s SHOT Show. Catalyst Arms, a small firearms accessories manufacturer in Portland, wasted no time
in making a Hardpoint Mounting System to allow PC-9 owners to sling and assist in “tricking out” the rifle


We are excited to introduce The Hammerhead bolt knob.  Designed for the way precision rifle shooters often work their rifle's action, this bolt knob has a "waist" to capture the trigger finger or edge of the hand when popping the bolt up to eject and chamber the next round.    

The Hammerhead works with bolt handles that use 5/16-24TPI threads such as the Ruger Precision Rifle and many others.

Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and anodized black or red, the Catalyst Arms Hammerhead bolt knob installs without modification rifle.  Available now at
