A letter from Rick J. Fernandez, President and CEO of Precision Tactical, INC

     My journey for the AR-15 safety device began over 5 years ago with the interest and goal to make the platform safe, secure, and provide the owner the confidence that an unintended user will not involve the owner’s weapon in a mishap, or used in a crime if stolen. The choices available were all easily defeatable with any common tool found in the garage. 

     I designed and produced a number of prototypes and ultimately achieved what you see available now: a magazine containing a breach block that cannot be removed without my proprietary key (as has been tested and proven by HP White laboratories). The magazine retention portion of the lock is a sophisticated design with two .030 stainless steel pins located in the outer sleeve that engage the inner nut which is threaded onto the magazine catch. This design ensures it cannot be picked or defeated and you must have the key supplied with each device to unlock the magazine retention system.

     The CA DOJ reviewed my design in June 2016 and I was asked to provide a sample of the device along with a copy of the installation instructions for review. Both my device and the instructions were approved as submitted. Additionally, the instructions clearly state that "removal of the magazine by the key functionally disables the feeding system”. As you know, the feeding system is a key component of any semi-automatic firearm action.

      Then comes the new legislation signed July 1, 2016 and effective Jan 1, 2017 that redefines an assault weapon to be any center-fire semi-auto with a removable magazine that is removable “without disassembly of the firearm action” (SB880). 

      It was never my intent to create a device solely to comply with any such legislation. I simply wanted to create a safety device for the most influential weapon to hit the industry since the 1911. It was not designed to allow for "timed magazine swaps" or back-to-back magazine employment. In my humble opinion, it is the finest safety device available AND approved in writing by the CA DOJ.

      The fact that we detailed the disassembly of the firearm feeding system when using the PT-AR LOK was an honest and sincere effort to ensure the owner understood what would occur when the device is used.

      So, I welcome 2017 along with the challenges presented in our state with the new regulations. My intent has, and always will be, to create and build the most accurate, dependable, and SAFE firearms available.

The PT-AR LOK: 'A Revolutionary Safety Device'

 

 

THE PT-AR LOK - MAGAZINE RETENTION & SAFETY-LOCK SYSTEM 

CA DOJ APPROVED!

 

The PT-AR Lok by Precision Tactical is a revolutionary approach to AR-15 safety and 2017 California compliance that provides owners an unprecedented level of security and flexibility. Safeguard your AR-15 against unauthorized use, injuries and accidents with the easy-to-install, dual component design that allows legal installation options for all fifty states*.

When operated as a safety storage device, the included breech block prevents the weapon from the ability to receive a round thus preventing any unauthorized use or accident.

By removing the breech block, there is no better compliance device to permanently affix a magazine. The hidden magic designed into the replacement inner button reveals precision machined channels on the backside of the inner button that engages tiny (yet strong...and very effective) stainless steel pins. These pins in turn engage the channels and this locks the button in place.

Only a PT-AR LOK key will disable the pins and allow the inner button to rotate. 

The magazine can only be removed by inserting the key while maintaining inward pressure and rotating it counter-clockwise approx 3-4 complete turns. Another magazine cannot be inserted and locked into place without inserting the key (again maintaining inward pressure) and turning it clockwise 3-4 turns after magazine installation. This action of removal/reinstallation of the magazine functionally disables the ammunition feeding system and is the ONLY device approved by the CA DOJ that performs this critical compliance feature. Disabling the ammunition feeding system then disables the semi-automatic firearm action. 

For use with AR-15 style rifles and/or rifles that incorporate a standard AR-15 magazine release button. Clearly outperforms trigger and gable locks in safety and ease of operation.

 

 

Independently tested and approved to meet and exceed safety standards established by the California Dept. of Justice AC 978.20(a) by H.P. White Laboratory, the leading provider of specialized testing services, validation, and certification of ammunition, firearms and armor to Federal, State and Local Government agencies.

 

 

 

*As of October 12, 2016 this device can be seen on California Department of Justice website approved for sale.  As such, we can legally say "This is a California-approved Firearms Safety Device that meets the requirements of Penal Code Section 23655 and the regulations issued there under." And as you probably guessed, there's laws governing who can say this.  Laws like Penal Code 23650 and 23655 that prohibits those who are not on the list from saying 'they are'. We're proud to say 'We Can'!
