The Official Qube from CGS Group, a Set Screwless Glock Comp

CGS Group recently unveiled the Official Qube, a Set Screwless Comp for Glock pistols.

Sounds interesting so I asked how it works and this was their reply.

The center radially porter cylinder threads onto the barrel first and gets torqued down with a wrench. It comes in either M13.5×1 LH or 1/2×28. The square Comp slides over the top of that against a taper on the ported cylinder. The hex nut lock on the front end pinches the square Comp against a second taper and locks it down preventing rotation of the square comp.

The square comp is the same size as a Glock slide, so it can be put in a vase and then just torqued down.

Alternatively, you can get the front lock but finger tight and get the square Comp oriented at 11 o’clock, then tighten to final orientation by torquing it down with a crescent wrench.

The center is radially ported so it doesn’t need timing since the barrel dimension will vary. Tapers can’t be shimmed anyway.

Although it’s intended for Glocks, it can be used with other pistols as well due to its mounting system.

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

MOHOC, Inc. delivers new Personal Recording System to Coastal Riverine Group 1

SEATTLE, WA. MOHOC, Inc., creator of the world’s first military-optimized helmet cameras, has been chosen to supply the Personal Recording System for the US Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC). After extensive competitive trial and evaluation through Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane, NECC selected MOHOC® Cameras over other video solutions. The tactically-designed and ruggedized cameras will be used to record both training and key mission activities.

Following the award, MOHOC recently completed delivery of over 2,000 MOHOC® Cameras and accessories to the US Navy’s Coastal Riverine Group 1 (CRG1). CRG1 conduct maritime security operations, defending high value assets and critical maritime infrastructure on both inland and coastal waterways. They are one of numerous groups under NECC now eligible to procure MOHOC® Cameras.

Eric Dobbie, Vice President of US Sales at MOHOC, commented, “We’re excited to support CRG1 with MOHOC® Cameras. We believe more NECC units and other branches of service will recognize the advantages of our field-proven helmet cameras tailored to the requirements of operators.”

MOHOC® Cameras feature a patented form-factor that provides a low-profile, helmet-contoured, and snag-free fit. They are ruggedized to IP68 rating (10m waterproof, 2m drop-proof), and easy-to-use in extreme conditions with simple, tactile controls. The cameras capture 1080p HD video and 12MP photos in visible light and infrared illumination, run on multiple battery types, and livestream video over wifi. Already deployed with Special Forces and SWAT Teams around the world, the NECC selection continues the trend of MOHOC® Cameras being adopted by broader Armed Forces and First Responders.

Revision Military Eyes New Brand for Outdoor Recreation

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

New Revision Outdoor brand to offer protective and stylish eyewear for hunting, fishing and more

ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (Nov. 13, 2018) – Revision Military, a world leader in tactical eyewear, armor and protective systems, announced today it has expanded to create a new brand in the outdoor industry, Revision Outdoor.

Designed to meet the needs of hunters, anglers and outdoor adventurers who demand a lot from their equipment, Revision Outdoor will utilize state-of-the-art facilities and technologies, while building on the expertise of Revision Military, to produce performance-focused eyewear designed and assembled in the United States.

The brand is launching with three styles of eyewear – the Revision Pursuer™, made for the high elevation hunt; the Revision Caller™, made for the water’s edge; and the Revision Seeker™, made for everyday adventure.


The Revision Seeker™ shown in mountain shadow frame and cedar lens tint.

“As we talked to members of the hunting community we discovered a need for technical eyewear built for the modern hunter,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. “We set out to fill that need using our military experience and insight from expert hunters and anglers to build the most protective and high-performance eyewear available for use in the extreme outdoors.”


The Revision Pursuer™ shown in rocky scree frame, slate lens tint and integrated retention strap.

Four polarized lens tints are available, each treated with the company’s proprietary OcuMax® AF lens coating technology to provide anti-fog, anti-scratch and smudge-resistant performance. In addition, each lens meets military ballistic impact requirements, providing remarkable protection matched with exceptional style. Custom prescription lenses are also available.


The Revision Caller™ shown in mountain shadow frame and indigo lens tint.

The lenses are paired with durable, ultra-light frames that weigh just over an ounce to offer all-day comfort that will last season after season. A choice of three frame colors and three lens options allows users to fully customize each pair for their specific styles, needs and preferences.

Products are available to order on the brand’s website at www.revisionoutdoor.com. Each model is priced at $279. Every piece of eyewear comes with a custom retention strap, an innovative storage system that includes an eyewear pouch with microfiber cloth and a protective pro bag, and a limited lifetime warranty.

Tecnica – Forge Winter GTX

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

One of the coolest things I learned about during last week’s Outdoor Retailer Winter Market is the introduction, in September 2019 L, of the Forge Winter GTX from Italian footwear manufacturer Tecnica.

As you may recall, Tecnica’s Forge is custom molded to the wearer’s feet during a process first developed for ski boots. Their Thermoform system features an anatomic last Custom Adaptive Shape. C.A.S. consists of a footbed and upper. The footbed works in concert with the upper’ arch. The upper also features a customizable heal cup and ankle pads.

As you can see, they are all Black, without the color pop of the initial launch of the Forge. Additionally, in order to make the Forge more appropriate for winter use, Tecnica has integrated a Gore-Tex lining as well as Vibram Arctic Grip Sole. The Arctic Grip sole does an amazing job of keeping stable in ice.

The rest of the details remain the same. Kevlar loops take the place of metal hardware to form the self locking lace design that doesn’t creep while moving and the tongue overlaps to reduce hot spots.
