Trijicon Accupoint 1-6

Trijicon, you need to make a 1-6 Accupoint with a reticle good for holdovers!!!

That has been the battle cry for a few years now..

Yes, at this point there ARE a lot of 1-6 scopes out there, good ones.  But as we all know, the awesome thing about Trijicons are no batteries to deal with and it’s “always on”.  Of course, they have introduced some battery powered lit reticle scopes over the last few years and they were done right but there is still a lot of people that really like the no battery concept.

DevilCat Pack – Upgrade your ALICE!


What is a DevilCat mod? It’s what happens when you take some new USMC hardware and upgrade an ALICE pack.

I’ve been playing around with ALICE packs for a while now. I love the Medium ALICE, especially the woodland pattern radio pack case version. However, it isn’t big enough for an overnight hike, especially in the winter.

As part of a large purchase from Lee Surplus Outlet, I got a used FILBE main bag. It’s part of the FILBE rucksack the Marines now use. The interesting thing about this new rucksack is that it fits on a Down East 1606 airborne assault frame, which can also take an ALICE pack. In fact, these frames have been used for a while by ALICE enthusiasts as a lightweight alternative to the hold frame.

Samson Evolution Series Hand Guard

Samson Evolution

As I was building my new 6.8 SPC II Short Barrel Rifle, I began putting together my wish list of parts and accessories.  The first thing I settled on was the barrel – Wilson Combat 11.3″ Match Grade Stainless.  Next decision was which hand guard to install to compliment the Wilson Combat barrel running a Templar Tactical Crux Nemesis30 suppressor.  Requirements – light (no quad rail for this guy), free floating, easy to attach accessories, comfortable in hand, and a solid mount to a mil-spec barrel nut.  The Samson Evolution Series 10″ fit the criteria and I am very pleased with the end result.

Best Selling Guns

Gunbroker has released their list of the Top 5 selling guns by category for April.  In the New Semi-Auto Pistol category, the top seller was (surprisingly) the Kel Tec PMR-30 followed by the Springfield XD-S.  For calendar year 2014 the Sig Sauer 1911 was the best seller.  Of course, Gunbroker has to make some decisions on how to roll up model variations into the statistics but the results are interesting.  The Ruger American Rifle was the top selling New Bolt-Action followed by the venerable Remington 700.  

2A Holsters


We recently got in a few holsters from Tom at 2A Holsters and I thought I would share with you my thoughts. Well, first off, we got an email from Tom asking if we would be interested in reviewing the holsters. We get a lot of requests to do reviews and frankly, we all have full time jobs and families and doing reviews takes time. Something we are all in short supply of. I decided to call Tom and get a feel for what kind of guy is behind the company. That matters to me.. a lot. I definitely got the good guy vibe, we are both ex Navy and I thought he had some good ideas on design. So, I had Tom send me a few holsters.

Ruger American Ranch Compact rifle in 300 Blackout

Ruger American Ranch Compact 300 Blackout with Leupold VXR 2-7 and Templar Tactical Nemesis30

We got the Ruger American Ranch Compact in 300 Blackout back in the fall.  It was exactly what I was looking for.  A lightweight 300 Blackout youth model with a 16″ threaded barrel.   We got it, mounted a Leupold VXR 2-7 on it and sighted it in with some Barnes 110g ammo.  Running a Templar Tactical Nemesis30 can on it.  Right of the box it was shooting 1/2″ groups. Very nice.

We hunted with it and it took care of a few deer for my boys.  It’s a cool little gun, very lightweight and even dad might enjoy it as a truck gun our out walking around!

Hardened Arms 300 Blackout Review: The Rest of the Story.


A month or so back I began testing the Hardened Arms 300 Blackout pistol upper.   I left with mixed feelings and said more testing needs to be done. Since then I have purchased and built 2 more guns with their uppers, if one of these cheap uppers interest you read on.
