Monday, November 17th, 2014


S&S Precision refers to the Trifecta Connecta as the “Gateway to Modularity” and for holsters, it certainly is.

The Trifecta Connecta’s hole pattern makes it compatible with Safariland, Blackhawk! and G-Code holsters, as well as S&S Precision’s own Grenade Launcher Holster. With the included spacers and screw kit, you will be able to get the standoff you need.


By adding the Trifecta Connecta to the Grenade Launcher Holster they have been able to reduce the cost while making the product more adaptable for mounting to a variety of platforms.

    FirstSpear Friday Focus – The THUG

    Friday, November 7th, 2014

    No, the THUG isn’t another name for Ronnie Fowlkes, it’s a 6/12 compatible Tactical Augmentation Panel for FirstSpear armor carriers. In this week’s Friday Focus we’ll take a look at FirstSpear’s THUG and show you what its all about.


    It’s pretty cool. Oftentimes, guys will find themselves operating in vehicles or scenarios where they can’t wear a fully kitted out armor carrier. That’s where the THUG comes in. You can configure the THUG for any number of loads and store it in a bag or hang it up via G-Hooks. Then, when you need it, you can quickly attach it to your armor carrier using those G-Hooks at the rear and Tubes up front. It still allows use of the Tubes for rapid donning and doffing and, it can folded in half for center wear on your carrier.


    Made in USA and offered in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green and MultiCam.

    G-Code Scorpion

    Earlier in the week, we posted an article on the BCM Mod 3 Vertical Grip, and there was a quite a bit of buzz regarding the identity of the mag pouch featured in this image:


    Well, now we’re cleared to talk about it, and we’ve got to say that the overall system has got us pretty excited.


    It’s called G-Code Scorpion, and it’s a line of modular magazine and fighting equipment carrying systems with a minimalist design. The interior of each pouch is lined with G-Code Tactical FUZZ, a material that provides a friction medium which not only retains the magazine but also provides a smooth, silent draw. Each pouch also features engineered channels which provide armored protection of the binding cord, ensuring precision placement of the interlace. The binding cord allows the end user to fine tune the feel of the draw to their own personal preference.

    G-Code Scorpion pouches are ambidextrous and RTI compatible, and can readily integrate with the entire family of G-Code mounting accessories right out of the box.


    Scorpion pouches are also designed so that they can be stacked, allowing for multi-rifle, multi-pistol, or rifle and pistol platforms.

    G-Code Scorpion pouches are available for all manner of 5.56, 7.62, and single and double-stack pistol magazines.

    The entire G-Code Scorpion line is 100% made in the USA.
