The Last Wooden H&K MP7 Replica Is Now Available For Sale

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Late last week, we featured an article on a highly-detailed MP7 wooden replica created by UK-based artist Jenni Edwards. Ms. Edwards contacted us to let us know that it, and a G36 replica, had both sold. However she managed to find one last MP7 replica that she is currently selling on her Etsy page. She has stated that this is the last MP7 replica she will ever make and sell, so if you’re in the market for one, here’s your final opportunity. The original article follows:

Jenni Edwards, a UK-based artist, creates highly detailed laser cut and laminated scale models of modern firearms. Her works include 2 models of the SCAR which are currently in the FNH Belgian HQ, as well as MP7 models which were produced for the UK’s Royal Armouries. The latter model is what’s currently available for sale via Edwards’ Etsy shop, ‘Splintersell’. The model is made of maple and birch, and features fully moving parts, including:

  • Removable magazine
  • Retractable buttstock
  • Retractable charging handle
  • Trigger which releases the hammer

    The model also features a functioning green dot sight, a removable suppressor, and weapon accurate markings.

Completely adjustable, the FoneMate will accept any smart phone with any protective case (from the ridiculously large, to the thinnest models out there), and lock it into a cradle that mates with other optics. Most smart phone adapters are specifically designed to work with certain phones. But FoneMate is the most rugged and universal solution to adapting your smart phone to other lenses. That’s where TNVC steps in.

An exclusive TNVC adapter will interface the FoneMate with any night vision monocular that contains a PVS-14 Eyepiece Assembly (PVS-14, MOD-3B, GT14, Etc), providing perfect alignment for crisp photography and viewing on a digital screen. It will even attach to the popular Trijicon Electro Optic line of thermal imaging systems. This is the first system specifically designed for this application and we’re excited to bring this to the market.

    NASA Releases Space Mission Videos

    Saturday, July 29th, 2017

    The National Air and Space Administration’s Armstrong Flight Research Center has released a variety of videos depicting the devlopment of equipment used for space exploration.

    This 48-second video from 1969 shows a Lunar Landing Research Vehicle (LLRV) taking off and hovering during an early flight test.

    The LLRVs, humorously referred to as “flying bedsteads,” were created by a predecessor of NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center to study and analyze piloting techniques needed to fly and land the tiny Apollo Lunar Module in the moon’s airless environment. (Dryden was known as NASA’s Flight Research Center from 1959 to 1976.)

    Success of the LLRVs led to the building of three Lunar Landing Training Vehicles (LLTVs) used by Apollo astronauts at the Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston, TX, predecessor of NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

    Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong, first human to step onto the moon’s surface, said the mission would not have been successful without the type of simulation that resulted from the LLRVs and LLTVs.
