Orion Design Group – ARC Overview Video

July 7th, 2015

In the above video, Bryan from Orion Design Group goes over the features of the Advanced Reconnaissance Chest Rig. We posted an article of the ARC back in January, so you can refer to that post for the full details, however, in brief, the ARC is a five-piece modular chest rig developed by Orion Design Group in collaboration with S&S Precision, and manufactured by Grey Ghost Gear. The ARC is centered around an optics pouch, capable of holding upwards of a large framed 10x binoculars, along with some small Thermal Imaging Devices. This pouch is accompanied by the yoke, side panels, and a small roll top minimalist pack.

On their Facebook page, AttackPAK showed off a project they’re currently working on: integrating a climbing harness with the AttackPAK. Anyone remember the Lowe Alpine LOCO from the 1980s?

Given the modularity of the AttackPAK system, this is a good fit, and we’re eager to see a finalized product.

Wilson Combat – Ultimate Action Tune Kit, Beretta 90 Series

July 6th, 2015

The Wilson Combat Beretta Ultimate Action Tune Kit will enhance the trigger pull of any Beretta 90/92/96 series handguns. Featuring their re-engineered enhanced design trigger bar which increases hammer arc at the point of sear let off for increased ignition reliability in double and single action mode and also reduces trigger overtravel. This machined, fully hardened part requires minor fitting.


The reduced power chrome silicon hammer springs and standard power trigger return spring will hold their tension much longer than conventional factory-spec springs and the array of supplied hammer spring weights can be tailored to the ammunition and trigger pull that you prefer.

12#, 13#, 14# Chrome Silicon hammer springs, standard weight chrome silicon trigger return spring and Wilson Combat enhanced trigger bar are included.

Who Scored a Set of New OCP ACUs?

July 6th, 2015

Over the weekend we saw a few photos of Soldiers proudly wearing their new OCP ACUs. Who braved the lines and purchased a set? How many are wearing OEF-OCP (MultiCam) FR ACUs from an RFI issue or went out and purchased some commercial ACUs in MultiCam?


Although Scorpion name tapes, rank and skill badges aren’t available yet, many had sewn on MultiCam versions and you couldn’t tell the difference. As for unit patches, many stateside units don’t have MultiCam variants so the yellow sharpie trick seems to be working so far. What did you do?
