REFT Battle Blog – more than TTPs

RE Factor Tactical is known for many things, primarily gear, but also apparel (like their “Violence” tee, hinted at above). Many people are unaware, however, that they maintain an active blog, and not one that is restricted to TTPs (Tactical, Techniques, and Procedures) and shooting drills. They actually address everything from navigating the VA home loan process … ...

Sage Dynamics Video Overview of the Railscales Karve

Aaron from Sage Dynamics did a great overview of the new Karve handstop by Railscales. The Karve is a handstop that can be used on both M-LOK and KeyMod rails while maintaining an extremely small footprint thanks to the C O G (Common Overt Geometry) system that Railscales developed. The new Railscales Karve is available for … ...

Testing The KAK Industry .308 Nitride BCG with Dual Ejectors

The other day I was given the opportunity to run some rounds through the new KAK Industry .308 Nitride BCG with Dual Ejectors. Dual Ejectors are not brand new but I have never personally used a BCG in any caliber with this setup and wanted to figure out what it could do different than my … ...

ZeroBravo Inc REOS (Rapid Engagement Offset Sights)

As many of you are already know, high power scopes are great for distance shooting but they are not great for quick target acquisition at closer range. For this reason a pair of offset sights can be an invaluable tool on your rifle with magnified optics. I’ve been running the ZeroBravo Inc. REOS or Rapid … ...

First Look – Rainier Arms AVALANCHE Ambi Charging Handle

A few months back we were told that Rainier Arms was developing a brand new ambi charging handle that would be 110% brand new, built from the ground up to the be the best Ambi C.H. on the market. That sounded like a pretty tall order but if anybody could do it, it would be … ...

Low-Pro KeyMod Bipod Mount from Impact Weapons Components

For a while now I’ve been wanting to purchase a couple more Harris bipods and pair them with the Impact Weapons Components KeyMod Bipod Mount. About a month ago I happened to be messing around on the Impact Weapons Components website and saw that they now carry Harris bipods and couldn’t help myself. I purchased two bipods … ...

Overview / Initial Impressions of the AREA 53 Billet Lowers

We were given the chance recently to take a look at a couple of lowers from AREA 53. AREA 53 is a company that I’ve heard of and seen pictures of their products but really wasn’t that familiar with. They primarily focus on billet uppers and lowers including many different models and customization options for … ...

First Impressions – Fortis Manufacturing REV II MLOK Rail

Recently I started a new build. It was centered around a few key components, the Rainier Arms Mod3 billet receiver set, Rainier Arms 16″ .223 Wylde barrel made from a Rock Creek Blank, the LANTAC USA E-BCG and the new Fortis Manufacturing 14″ REV II MLOK rail. I just recently finished this build and will … ...

The Redi-Catch – An Old Product I’ve Never Seen Before

Every so often I run across a product that to me seems new but in reality its one I missed a long time ago and just didn’t know it existed. Last month, RECOIL published an online review of the Redi-Catch by Boonie Packer which seemed like a really cool new product but apparently its been around … ...

Initial Impressions – SCALARWORKS LDM/MICRO Mount

A while back I helped introduce the SCALARWORKS LDM/Micro mount for Aimpoint T-1/H-1 red dots. They have been a very popular mount since then and now I’m excited to actually get to try one out for myself. I’ve had the Absolute Co-Witness mount on my SBR for about a week now and wanted to give my initial impressions … ...

KAK Shockwave and Blade AR Pistol Stabilizer Install and Comparison To The SIG SB15 Arm Brace

Many of us are what our friends at Jerking The Trigger refer to as an “AR Pistolero”. Meaning we have one…or more…AR Pistols in our collection of Firearms. AR Pistols started gaining in popularity when Sig Sauer introduced the SB15 Arm Brace because everyone saw the “possibilities” that it represented. It wasn’t until the ATF gave … ...

NEW!! IWC / Elzetta MINICQB Light with “KML” Mount Technology

For a while now the main thing that has been missing from the whole KeyMod and M-LOK rail push is companies that were willing to create direct mount products for these systems…and that is understandable when you think about how fast this industry moves from one new solution to another. Look how fast M-LOK has … ...
