Spent some time at Best of the West shooting range testing the Templar Tactical Suppressors. The Templar Tactical Archangel is very impressive in terms of sound suppression and repeatable accuracy as well. More »
On this edition of Silencer Sunday I take a look at the Griffin Armament Checkmate QD silencer. This little can is a lot of fun, and it’s attachment method is unlike anything else on the market for rim fire cans. The 3 lug Checkmate mount is compression based and works very well. The can has a 6061 T6 Aluminum body and the baffles are constructed of 17-4 Stainless. The silencer has a length of 5.75″, a weight of 5.3oz and a diameter of 1″ which puts this in line with other silencers in this category. The silencer is rated for .22lr, .17HMR, .22WMR, and even .17 Mach2 making this silencer very versatile.
My second year in Iraq, I took along a MSA TC2000 ballistic helmet. More commonly known as the MICH (or in the Army, the ACH), this helmet provides level IIIA protection from fragments and pistol rounds. Why did I buy my own instead of taking what the Army would give me at CIF down in Ft. Benning? Easy; I was a contractor and the Army hated my guts.
Everyone wants an ACOG, but if you’re not able to drop $1,300 on a fixed, four-power optic, are you relegated to crappy imitations? Well, imitations, yes. But crappy? Not anymore. Enter the Primary Arms 4x Compact scope. It’s affordable, accurate, durable and innovative. The quality of this scope far exceeds its price point.
The multi-caliber reticle allows you to use this sight on an AK-74, an AR-15 or a FN FAL, in 5.45mm, 5.56mm and 7.62 NATO, respectively. It’s roughly the same weight as an ACOG or Leupold HAMR and is a fraction of the cost.
New sight specifically designed for use on AR-15 and M4 carbine style rifles
Chantilly, VA, October 20, 2014 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced the introduction of a new sight designed specifically for modern sporting rifles such as the AR-15. This new product, known as the Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO), expands upon the company’s already proven designs and focuses these features into a high quality, entry priced optic.
Sunday again and here is the 2nd installment of Silencer Sunday! Today I will be taking a look at the Griffin Revolution 9. The modularity and quiet nature of this can is something that I really enjoy. Last week I was shooting full power 40 through a 45 can and this week I will be shooting 9mm in a 9mm can. The difference is fantastic as this can performs very well.
Glocks are utterly reliable, everyone knows that. They are arguably the most popular pistol in use in the world. They are in use by military and law enforcement, civilians for self defense and for fun. About the most fun you can have with guns is competition like 3 gun. You can run standard, stock service models and be highly competitive, no doubt about it. But it is a lot easier and frankly more enjoyable to have stuff that works better and is tweaked to meet your desires.
Enter the fun world of Glock aftermarket triggers. Today I cover the DK Custom Glock Trigger..
If you are looking to start shooting Precision Rifles you will no doubt find yourself using Google to search the end of the Internet for what optics to use on a precision rifle. You will no doubt think you know scopes at first and after some time may come to the conclusion I did, that scopes are much more complicated than you first imagined. You start looking at the options available and realize that you want exposed turrets, a reticle that matches the adjustments, Front Focal Plane, and good glass all on a budget. Just breaking into Precision Rifles, if you’re like me, spending $3,000 on a S&B isn’t in the cards. In comes Burris and their new XTR II series.
This is our first Silencer Sunday so an introduction is in order. TGR is going to bring you reviews of silencers every week and give our opinions and some simple meter numbers on the cans we test. TGR does not own these cans but since we are local to the Silencer Shop, they have graciously allowed us access to some of the industry’s best products. First up, the Silencerco Octane 45 HD.
I needed some subsonic 308 ammo to do some testing with and so I called my friend Chad from Dallas Reloads.
I have ran his 300 Blackout ammo and it ran great.
Our buddies at the Silencer Shop have some of these killer Noveske SBRs in stock..
Check them out!
