The PWS upper and lower receivers are now forged, allowing for a stronger and lighter product. A common known fact that has been lost through the marketing efforts of many AR 15 manufacturers is that a forging can produce a piece that is much stronger than a billet part. As the metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain aligns to follow the general shape of the part. As a result, the grain is continuous throughout the part, giving rise to a part that is stronger, yet lighter, than a billet part.
The MOD 2 handguard has been equipped with the new PicMod Technology. This allows you to mount any KeyModTM attachment anywhere on your rail while being able to mount most Picatinny accessories directly to the rail in the areas where the PicMod feature is present. This gives you the most mounting options without having to use KeyModTM mounted Picatinny rail sections, adding unnecessary width and weight to your rifle.
Adjustable Gas Block:
The MOD 2 comes with three easy to use gas block settings.
Position 1 is recommended for for all types of ammunition and conditions when not using a suppressor.
Position 2 is for use with low powered ammunition when using a suppressor.
Position 3 is recommended for normal suppressor use with normal and high powered ammunition.
Everything about the MOD 2 has been designed to be an incredibly accurate fit and finish, including the new handguard mounting system, which features a trunnion machined into the upper receiver.
Enhanced Trigger: (SEE NOTES BELOW)
The MOD 2 comes with an enhanced trigger, set from the factory at a crisp 5.5 pounds. Each trigger is custom adjusted at the factory, to ensure perfect performance, every time you squeeze.
Both ZEV and PWS have worked hard over the years to set a high standard of product quality and overall customer satisfaction. The process of producing solid, safe products takes time and testing. The ZEV SSR (Single Stage Rifle) Trigger is very close to being production ready. The final steps are being taken to ensure it meets the quality standards of both companies. Due to production delays on the PWS MOD 2 rifle, we feel it is important to get the product in the hands of our dealers and customers. If you have placed an order for MOD 2 rifles, your shipments will include the BCM PNT Trigger on the rifle along with an instruction card for your customer to submit a request for the ZEV SSR Trigger.
For your customers to redeem the ZEV SSR Trigger for their rifle, they will simply go to http://primaryweapons.com/store/zev-ssr-trigger-request/ and submit the serial number of their MOD 2 rifle, shipping and personal information.
