Cerus Gear Introduces series of Instructional Gun Cleaning Mats

Friday, March 16th, 2018

New for 2018, the evolution of gun cleaning has begun with ProMat Gun Cleaning Mats. Featuring vivid colors, accurate to scale designs and manufactured in the USA.

Our signature line of Instructional Promat’s guide firearm owner in field striping and cleaning of weapon.

No more ruined towels or scuffed barrels. Simply unroll ProMat and convert any kitchen table, truck bed or work bench into a gunsmith station.

As a rule, the first thing a new/or seasoned shooter should do after purchasing a new weapon is learn its assembly and disassembly. This is done for a few reasons, 1) the more rounds you put through the weapon, the dirtier it will become and with the dirt the likelihood of a malfunction requiring proper cleaning and maintenance. 2) periodic inspection each component for damage.

Cerus Gear Instructional ProMat’s are the perfect blend of form and function. These lightweight, heavy duty cleaning mats are the perfect addition to your armorer’s bench. Large enough to handle a field-stripped handgun or rifle while instructions remain visible. The soft poly top sheet won’t mar or scratch your investment or heirloom, and resists gun oil or solvent stains, preserving your counter and kitchen towels. Educational, protective, and tacti-cool!

Complement your next firearm purchase with Cerus Gear’s new line of Instructional ProMat.

Enforce Tac 18 – Heckler & Koch Introduce Gen3 Polymer Magazine

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

Heckler & Kock debuted their new GEN3 Polyner Magazine at Enforce Tac. It is a 5.56mm, 30 round STANAG magazine which is now standard with the HK416 and 433 rifles.


They put quite a bit into the design aesthetic. For instance, the round count window conjures a projectile, moving toward the target.


Speaking of round count windows, there is also a window at the backstrap. The spring has an orange indicator letting you know you are empty.


Grooves for a positive grip extend completely around the magazine’s body, as you can see in this photo of the front aspect.


Here is a view of the feed lips and follower.


It has a removable floor plate.


Made in Germany, the Gen3 PM is available in this RAL8000 shade as well as Black.

Design features will eventually find their way into a 7.62 version as well.

Max Venom Product Group Launches Fast Fire Device for GLOCK! Crowdfunding Campaign on Indiegogo

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Colin Despins of Max Venom Tactical has created an Indiegogo campaign for his latest invention, the Fast Fire Device for GLOCK!

The FFD-H is optimized for a GLOCK 17 or a full-size Lone Wolf frame. It can be installed or uninstalled from the host firearm in seconds and without any tools. But the real point is that it also allows for the handgun to achieve a full auto-like rate of fire. With legislation pending to ban bumpfire stocks and other, similar devices, Despins decided to launch the crowdfunding campaign sooner rather than later.

In addition to this video, they promise additional imagery of the device in action on their instagram page Max_Venom_Product_Group.

The last paragraph on the campaign’s webpage is pretty interesting:

Special Note – In no event shall Max Venom (MaxVenom.com), or any agents of Max Venom, be held liable for any damages resulting from the use or misuse of this product. By backing this project the user/purchaser agrees to hold harmless Max

Venom, indefinitely.

The campaign’s page is www.indiegogo.com/projects/fast-fire-device-for-glock.

New Scarging Handle Colors from Kinetic Development Group

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

KDG has improved their popular FNH SCAR Charging Handle, The “Scarging handle” and are now offering it in both Flat Dark Earth and matte Black Cerakote. The product is constructed of low carbon 1080 steel, heat treated and finished with a durable black, mil-spec finish before having the rugged Cerakote finish applied. KDG Scarging handle fits both 5.56 and 7.62 NATO versions of the SCAR, and installs in seconds.The design features a radius-faced grasping area, and swept geometry. This allows the user to achieve a more solid grasp when manipulating the bolt, aided by a deeply textured surface. Installation allows for easier charging, clearing of stoppages, and administratively locking the firearm bolt to the rear by allowing the shooter to gain more leverage on the charging handle. Shooters can choose between left or right side installation to match their hand dominance, and can rotate the Scarging handle to either downward or upward sweep. The downward sweep protects the hand from busted knuckles caused by optics mounts and other accessories by keeping it down and away from the weapon’s top. The increased grasping surface benefits those with larger hands or when wearing gloves.  The Scarging handle can alternatively be installed with the curve upward, which provides the user a slick side receiver to prevent snagging or “SCAR Thumb” (i.e. having the reciprocating charging handle strike your hand if using a magwell hold or unconventional shooting position). All Scarging Handles are constructed of low carbon 1080 steel, heat treated and finished with a durable black, mil-spec finish. The accessory protrudes less distance from the receiver than the factory unit, and is profiled to be extremely snag-resistant when wearing body armor or other gear. KDG is currently offering free shipping on all their products.
