Press Release: May 1, 2013
Wixom, MI — Trijicon has combined the legendary toughness and function of its combat-proven ACOG and associated ballistic reticles with a new variable optic. The new Trijicon VCOG (Variable Combat Optical Gunsight) 1-6×24 mm meets the rigorous demands of duty or competition while giving shooters the flexibility to engage CQB targets and out to the maximum effective range of most service rifles. Tactical Gun Review.com will have the exclusive first review of the new Trijicon VCOG 1-6
Red dots are an almost immediate upgrade for anyone who owns a firearm because they are extremely simple and highly effective. What the hunter, the sport shooter, our military, and law enforcement agents are looking for is a cost effective, low maintenance red dot sight that will handle the most extreme conditions to accomplish the most demanding missions. They don’t want another thing to worry about when operating their weapon, they just want to point and shoot. The Aimpoint PRO goes above and beyond just the point and shoot factor, exceeding all expectations by operating reliably and effectively in almost any condition.
TGR and the SilencerShop team up for suppressor testing;
In this video we are testing for point of impact shift with the following suppressors:
- Templar Tactical Archangel
- Griffen Armanent PHS3000
- Thunderbeast 30p-1
We will be publishing sound metering test videos soon!
We have decided that a optics shootout would be a lot of fun, and what better category could there be than the 1-8x optics that are on the market. I was able to obtain this fine scope from the folks at Bushnell Tactical. This is the Bushnell Elite Tactical SMRS 1-8.5-24mm. SMRS stands for Short/Mid Range Scope. This scope boasts a 34mm main tube, locking turrets with mil based adjustments and a mil based reticule. This one was equipped with a FFP BTR-2 reticule. The scope weighs in at 23 oz. and is 10″.
I had the chance to do a quick review of the latest rifle from LaRue Tactical, the 7.62 PredatOBR. The Larue PredatOBR is an interesting rifle that comes packed into a small black toolbox. That’s right, a toolbox. The rifle comes apart and is stored in a drag bag with pouches. It is offered in 14.5”, 16” and 18” barrel lengths. The 16” and 18” have slightly longer 14” hand guards than the shorter 14.5” barrel which gets a 12″ model.
We just got the new Nightforce NXS 2.5-10×42 in and initial impressions are quite positive. We also are testing the Alamo Four Star 30mm DLOC mount at the same time, I thought they would make a nice pairing.
Unless you’re a connoisseur of Eastern-European weapons, you’ve probably never heard of the Zastava CZ999 Compact pistol. So out of all the pistols in the world, why did I choose this to replace my HK USP 9mm?
I’ve had excellent experiences with a wide range of firearms made by the Serbian company Zastava. As stated in a previous article, I’m a fan of Serbia. They produce good rifles, good soldiers (though my experience with this is limited to the contractors I knew in Iraq) and good liquor.

As my search for a rifle capable of target engagements from point blank to 800 yards started to become a reality, I needed an optic equally capable of the task. I knew I wanted a short .308 to shoot competitively with and to hunt game in Texas, but I was asking for an optic capable of a huge task. I needed illumination that was daylight bright with a reticule that on 1x was CQB fast. I also needed something that would track perfectly should I decided to dial, and a reticule that would help me with holds at the effective limits of a 16” .308. I decided to give the fine folks at US Optics a call and get one of their fantastic SR8 optics. The SR8 is a 1-8×27 that weighs in at 1.6lbs, is 12” long and has 3.7” of eye relief. What is a little different about the optic that I am testing is the reticule, and the elevation turret. I have one of the pre-production models to test drive that includes a US#4 mini EREK knob, and a new Horus Vision reticule.
If you enjoy shooting common calibers such as .223/5.56 you most likely own or enjoy shooting AR-15 rifles. From competition to self defense there are countless reasons to love AR rifles. They are easy to use, can be configured in so many ways that it can make your head spin and they can be chambered in a number of popular rounds. However, if you are anything like me you eventually want more out of the gun than the small frame AR-15 calibers offer. An AR-15 can be chambered in a number of intermediate cartridges such as 6.8SPC, 6.5G, .300BLK and some others. Those cartridges are good, but they offer a limited amount of performance for shooting at distance or for hunting game at ranges longer than 250 yards. And let’s face it, the larger calibers offered by a .308 parent cartridge fit a larger need and ease of performance. Another issue is that building a .308 AR was difficult due to the lack of parts compatibility. This was something that Mega Arms decided to fix, and they developed the MATEN series of receivers.
The Sig Sauer 1911 Carry Nightmare is my new favorite pistol. It is a very well thought out design and build for a production gun. I first saw the 1911 Carry Nightmare at SHOT Show and had to wait a bit until production caught up with demand. Now that I have had some range time it appears that my first impressions were correct – this is a very cool gun for the price.
Leica ERi 3-12×50 just came in. This is Leica’s first illuminated reticle scope and they nailed it.
I wanted to give you some advance info before I do my full review as these are brand new.
