SCUBAPRO Sunday – The Devils Brigade

Sunday, May 19th, 2019

In honor of the SOFIC trade show next week. I wanted to post the movie the Devils Brigade. This was one of my favorite movies growing up. There are a lot of groups from WW ll that can claim to be the grandfathers of USSOCOM. There are different missions that ever Special Forces group does. From Direct action, (First Special Forces group/ Rangers) Special reconnaissance (OSS and OSS Maritime /UDT) and working with guerrilla force behind enemy lines force multiplication (Jedburgh). Those were who did it in WWII, and I didn’t list them all. All of these groups had a big hand in who and what we do today. I could not find the movies, but I found the trailer, if you get a chance it’s a good movie (yes it was made in 68, so there is that). Since this has nothing to do with SCUBAPRO, I throw in a picture of the OSS maritime unit.

ITW Nexus FastMags Now Available Through MMI Textiles

Friday, May 17th, 2019

The ITW Nexus family of FastMags are now available through MMI Textiles.

This line of products includes the GEN IV FastMag™, FastMag™ Heavy, and FastMag™ Pistol. FastMags™ reduce reloading cycle time for the operator and can be mounted in the up or down direction (operator’s preference). This system eliminates the need for traditional top closures, while providing a secure point of access. The enhanced urethane tension strap is adjustable to meet the user’s preference for removal tension. The mounting slots on the front allow operators to “double-stack” FastMags™

The main difference between this new generation (GEN IV) and the previous (GEN II) is the re-done tab on the bottom so a tool is no longer needed – you can now pull a tab to thread. Also, the retention bands have been reinforced.
