New enhancements on the Model R51 include superior slide performance with updated internals, precision-engineered extractor, locking snag-free sights, finely-tuned recoil spring, hard chromed barrel bushing, top-end single action trigger and two semi-flush 7 + 1 round magazine.

The Remington Model R51 is available chambered in 9mm Luger +P with a suggested retail price
of $448.00. In addition, the Model R51CT features a Crimson Trace laser sight with a suggested retail price of $648.00.

July 25th, 2016

According to a TACOM Maintenance Information Message (16-039) released last week, the US Army is introducing a new M4 Enhanced Performance Magazine.  While we haven’t seen an example yet, it will be easy to discern from previous magazines. Sporting a Tan body and Blue follower, it was engineered to address feeding issues with M855A1 ammunition. 

The M4 EPM has been assigned NSN 1005-01-630-9508 and will be introduced through attrition of the current magazine. The M4 EPM may also be introduced with M4 carbines going through conversion to the M4A1 configuration.

Blue Force Gear Ten-Speed Triple M4 Mag Pouch

July 25th, 2016

This is the Ten-Speed Triple M4 Mag Pouch from Blue Force Gear. When it first came out years ago, I was skeptical of its durability but I’m pleased to say that my reservations were ill-founded. Rather than losing elasticity or developing holes from wear at the corners of magazines, many of those early versions are still in service today. That’s thanks to the construction. They use a military-grade elastic combined with BFG’s ULTRAcomp laminate. Not only is it durable and low-profile but also lightweight. The Ten-Speed also incorporates their Helium Whisper attachment system which is PALS compatible.

Designed specifically for CQC (close quarters combat) and tubular assaults, the elastic keeps the magazines in place, yet right at your fingertips. There are no buckles or straps to fool with. While the pouch holds three M4 magazines (polymer or metal), it will also accommodate medical supplies, bandages, flash bangs, or other similar-sized items.

Available in Black, Coyote Brown, MultiCam, OD Green, Wolf Gray.
