Breaking – USSOCOM Cancels Suppressor Upper Receiver Group Solicitation

Monday, August 15th, 2016

In a special notice issued just minutes ago, United States Special Operations Command has canceled the Suppressor Upper Receiver Group solicitation.

The Suppressor Upper Receiver Group solicitation is cancelled.

United States Special Operations Command plans to analyze the results of the testing and post a new solicitation to industry in the future.

The message was simple and straight forward, yet doesn’t explain why. Many in industry have been very critcal of the ambitious program due to its requirements to keep the weapon cool enough to handle in spite of high operating temperatures. 

Considering the solicitation closed just a month ago, this move seems quite sudden. It sounds like none of the candidates met the program’s goals and SOCOM is going to circle back around.

Tactical Link – PDW Grip

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

The PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade for AR style rifles with a more vertical angle, optimized for short LOP (length of pull) personal defense weapons (PDW), bringing the primary hand in closer to the shooter’s body, encouraging a more natural “elbows in” shooting posture which substantially reduces wrist fatigue and is concurrent with modern shooting doctrine.

Made to the finest standards from an extremely durable fiber-reinforced polymer, the PDW Grip is the result of extensive professional shooter feedback and engineering excellence that has produced one of the finest shooting upgrades in the market today. The PDW Grip sports a patent pending design with “zones” of moderately aggressive surface texture to provide unmatched gripping properties for positive weapon control in all environments.

The PDW Grip is compatible with most lower receiver mounting platforms (forged or billet) and provides improved biomechanics to better align the trigger finger for a more comfortable and direct rearward trigger pull. Due to its hollow core design (no internal storage), the PDW Grip weighs only 2.1 oz and since the PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade it is sold without a grip screw.

Shooter Refined Ergonomics:
At 14 degrees, the PDW Grip is 235% (19 degrees) more vertical than the standard A2 grip and is the most comfortable and relaxing grip on the marketplace. Places the hand’s flexor muscles on more of the same plane creating a more natural hand position for a more natural hand position with little to no fatigue even during prolonged use.

Optimized Biomechanics:
Small beavertail backstrap provides enhanced ergonomics and allows the operator’s hand to ride high on the grip for improved recoil management and fire control.

Tactile Gripping Texture:
Much more aggressive texture than most other grips on the marketplace. “Zones” of more aggressive anti-slip texturing on the palm panels for excellent gripping properties and for positive weapon control in all environments.

Features:
-All edges rounded for operator comfort
-Reinforced beaver tail for extra rigidity
-Aggressive PSP (Pentagonal Surface Projections) Texture on both palm panels for superior weapon control
-Grooves on the front and rear backstraps for optimal anti-slip surface and excellent gripping properties
-Accommodates the “seam” commonly found on the beaver tail of forged lower receivers
-Unique trigger guard design provides a very comfortable, and absolutely the best fit at the trigger guard area of any grip on the market
-Grip “pulls” the operator’s hand forward into the grip for a more positive grip and better operational control of the weapon
-Robust design easily exceeds industry standards for quality, strength and durability
-100% made in USA

Tyrant Designs CNC Announces Colored AR grips

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

Tyrant Designs CNC, a industry leader in high end, aftermarket AR grips announced that they will now be selling their premium grip, the MOD Grip, in Red, Blue and grey. After the successful release of the MOD Grip in only black, they have decided to expand the options to other colors. With the contrast of colors against the black front and back straps they believe it will help consumers further customize the look of their rifle.

“After a few months of customers requesting color options, and the fact that the AR platform itself is becoming more than just a black rifle, we decided it would be best to give our customers what they want. We truly appreciate customer feedback, and a lot of our current and future designs include much consideration from the input of our customers. Although we love to push the limits of innovation in our designs, our products would be nothing without the operators input. “

Tyrant Designs CNC is an AR accessories manufacturer based just outside of Chicago. They have had several successful designs for AR pistol grips and have plans to expand to foregrips as well as other AR accessories this year. Check out all of the products they offer at www.TyrantCNC.com.

Radical Firearms Raising Funds To Donate Patrol Rifles To LE

Friday, July 8th, 2016

It pains us as a nation to see how many law enforcement officers over the last few weeks, specifically here in TEXAS, have been killed in the line of duty. These men and women are our neighbors, friends, and family, here to protect us from evil. We have to give our officers the ability to match force with force. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the fallen officers as well as the wounded officers that were trying to preserve peace. We cannot sit idly by as these horrendous acts happen…

Today, we are taking the initiative and starting a campaign to help protect as many Law Enforcement Officers as we can in the case their department doesn’t issue an officer a rifle. We are putting plans in motion to help Law Enforcement Officers get peace of mind back to be able to match or exceed the force they are put against.

We are accepting direct donations for Radical Firearms Blueline rifles that will go directly to a Law Enforcement Officer, starting with officers in Dallas, Texas.

With every $500 donated, one of our Radical Firearms Blueline rifles will go directly to a peace officer within 24hrs.

There are two levels of donation:

A) $100 Level
Every person that donates $100 will get a Radical Firearms Gift Bag Filled with goodies.

B) $250 Level
Every $250 donation will get a Gift Certificate for $100 to use at radicalfirearms.com.

There is no limit to how much you can make a difference in helping our law enforcement family.
