Unity Tactical FUSION Friday

Friday, July 20th, 2018

FUSION, by Unity Tactical, is a system of modular, multi-purpose components that provide end users unparalleled flexibility in mounting accessories to weapon platforms.  It offers complete control in attachment of lights, lasers, sights, and other equipment to achieve complete integration, optimal placement, lightest weight, and most economy of space.

This FUSION configuration features the Micro Hub 2.0, Backup Iron Sight – Folding, and Lightwing – Left.  The build is mounted in front of an AN/PEQ-15 laser and supports a Surefire M600U Scout Light.  Mounting the Micro Hub forward of a laser allows a pressure switch (shown here with TAPS) to be snugged right up behind the laser body for easy access to both onboard and remote controls.  The Micro Hub is extremely low profile, creating no interference with lasers.  The Backup Iron Sight – Folding is narrow enough to easily fit between the apertures of dual output lasers.  The Lightwing will readily accept direct-mount of Surefire Scout and Millennium series weapon lights, as well as Streamlight PROTAC Rail-Mount lights.  This Lightwing is the Left Side variant, but mounted backwards on the right side of the rifle – cantilevering the light within the footprint of the rail.  Attaching lights to the Lightwing raises them up above the bore and tucks them tighter under the laser body for an extremely compact package.

FUSION Config 1B BreakOut

FUSION components are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and MILSPEC Type 3 anodized.  Designed and made in the US from US materials and good ole’ fashioned American innovation.  FUSION is the original and best modular accessory mounting system.  Make your gear work for you, not the other way around.

FUSION components are available from Unity Tactical and authorized dealers to build your perfect setup.

TangoDown Announces New Vickers Tactical Carry Trigger for GLOCK

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

TangoDown™ Inc. is excited to introduce the new addition to the Vickers Tactical™ product lineup! Join us in welcoming the Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger (VTCT). There are two (2) different models which accommodate the large variety of Glock™ models on the market (see below).

The VTCT is a flat faced polymer trigger.  The flat faced trigger has become quite popular among shooters and offers the perception of a lighter trigger press.  When developing the VTCT, the mechanical take-up was not modified.  However, over-travel was shortened to offer a quicker reset, which allows for a quicker follow up shot.

89627ADD-753D-40E9-9A22-654F4C9D8140

The VTCT is made from the same material as the OEM trigger, so there isn’t the risk of wear/damage to the frame.  The trigger is an insulator, not a heat conductor and will not get hot while spending the day on the range.

F7B8BDBB-2C18-45D1-BE3C-CE7DABE3F6F3

From Larry Vickers – “After using a pre-production prototype version of the new Tangodown™/Vickers Tactical™ Glock trigger on my training pistol for a period of time, I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. In fact, of the multiple students I’ve had try the trigger I’ve yet to receive a negative comment. The Tangodown crew hit this one out of the park and it is, in my opinion, truly the Glock™ trigger ‘Perfected’.”

3403711F-FA61-4AC5-AEBF-DF2624608428

The VTCT is easily installed in minutes by a Certified Glock™ Armorer.

For further details, visit www.TangoDown.com to learn even more about the Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger.

The VTCT-001 fits all Gen3/Gen4 Glock™ models 9mm (including the G43), .40, .45ACP, 10mm.  Also accommodates the G42 .380 model.

The VTCT-002 fits all Gen5 Glock™ models currently on the market.

SENTRY Launches New Hexmag GLOCK Compatible Magazine

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Virginia Beach, Va. (July 2018)SENTRY Products Group, manufacturer of Hexmag magazines, the most advanced and versatile magazine on the market for the AR-15/AR-10 platform, proudly announces the launch

of its first pistol magazines for the GLOCK® platform.

The unique design of the new Hexmag® GLOCK compatible magazine sets the tone for SENTRY’s future direction with the Hexmag line. “This is the first new product since the acquisition of Hexmag and our goal was to come out with a completely new design blending the best of metal and polymer magazine technologies with Hexmag’s signature design attributes,” stated Eric Yeates, VP of Product Development. “The result is a skeletonized stainless-steel core and feed lips providing strength and reliability with a polymer over mold for ultimate durability.”

The design, compatible with GLOCK Gen 3 through Gen 5 models G17, G19, G26 and G34, also accepts current available aftermarket base pad extenders designed for the existing GLOCK 17 magazine. A round counter on the back provides an indicator of capacity while loading to a maximum of 17-rounds. A 10-round version will follow the initial launch for states and areas with capacity restrictions. Additional models are under development to compliment the offering.

The design incorporates what users have come to expect from Hexmag: proprietary advanced composites for strength and reliability. The signature HextureÔ finish creates a more secure grip in all environmental conditions. Textured serrations on the front of the magazine body provide for rapid indexing during magazine changes. A self-lubricating anti-tilt follower allows for ease of loading and flawless operation. A heat treated stainless-steel spring offers a lifetime of trouble free performance. The new Hexmag GLOCK also features Hexmag’s tool-less takedown and HexIDcolor identification system, increasing safe operation and personalization.

MSRP: $21.99

SENTRY has partnered with Amchar Wholesale and Midway USA for initial product distribution and all orders can be secured through these outlets. Consumers can also order direct at HexmagStore.com.

F7218D75-7C2D-4DE6-8131-1485F7E450E7

Leading the way in long-gun upgrades are the new Crimson Trace Tactical Lights. These innovations include the CWL-102 white LED light, which delivers up to 500 lumens and can be activated with a tap-on/tap-off tail cap or via a remote on/off activation pad attached to the light with a linking cable. That activation pad can be placed in position on the firearm with Velcro straps or a stick-in-place strip. Another similar light model, the CWL-202 provides up to 900 lumens of output. These lights are impact resistant and water resistant up to a depth of 1 meter. Models are available to fit standard rails or the M-Lok®/Keymod accessory slots.

Limited Numbers of ATEi A9 Gen 4 Glock Back In Stock

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

ATEi is happy to announce that the upgraded Gen Glock 19 A9, first introduced right around a year ago, is back in stock in limited quantity, in plenty of time for late Summer carry.

ATEi Glock Gen 4 A9

The A9 is a “turnkey” upgraded Gen 19 modified to ATEi’s high specs and standards. It is intended to provide an end user access to a superior ATEivolved fighting pistol right out of the box.

Features of the A9 include:
· Full Top Serrations
· Enhanced Side Serrations
· 360º Medium Textured Stippling
· Side Index Points, Medium Textured Stippling
· Finger Groove Removal
· Trigger Guard Undercut
· OEM Minus Connector
· Nitride Black Finished
· Optional Trijicon Sights
· Optional Overwatch Trigger

Why a full-size gun for Summer carry? Counterintuitive though it might seem to some, summer weather (shorts, tank tops, flip-flops and all) is more appropriate for full-size pistol carry than winter weather.

ATEi Glock Gen 4 A9

“I don’t subscribe to that bullshit theory that, oh it’s summertime, so I carry a pocket gun, when it’s wintertime I’ll switch back to a big gun,” says ATEi founder and HMFIC Doug Holloway. “That is ass backward. When do you see large groups of people out doing no good? In the winter when it’s just a couple degrees out, or during summer, when it’s 80º during the day, and the 70s at night? We’re much more likely to get into an encounter in the summer than winter, at least here in a colder climate, therefore we should probably be carrying the bigger gun in that season than the other, and more mags too. Maybe in Florida it’s different, but here in Michigan you don’t see a lot of people fucking off and hanging around the gas station at night during the middle of winter.”

ATEi Glock Gen 4 A9

The ATEi A9 is offered as a choice for someone looking to purchase a full-size ATEi EDC gun without having to send a weapon in and wait on the custom work involved.

8445D541-C46B-47DD-9B3D-24238F9E8B55

Here is a quick rundown of the A9 features and why they were selected for this model.

Stippling

The medium stippling, provided by Great Lakes Custom Works, is one of several types of stippling available on ATEi guns. In the A9’s case specifically, the medium level was selected because it is a “middle of the road” choice. Additional textures include Carry, Aggressive, Hybrid, and others, but would require special arrangements to include on an A9 purchase. Stippling on the A9 grip is 360º, and additional stippling is provided for index points on the side – one for the trigger finger, when it’s not on the trigger, one for as a reference point for the support hand thumb in a two-hand grip.

Trigger Guard Undercut

This modification is intended to eliminate “Glock knuckle.” The advantages of this will vary depending upon the geometry of the shooter’s hand. Some shooters find that a proper master grip, with the middle finger touching the trigger guard, causes a rub point. The corner of the bottom of the trigger guard will wear on the first knuckle of the middle finger. Some people develop a sore or callus there, i.e. Glock knuckle.

Top and Side Serrations

The ATEi Top Serrations on the A9 are primarily intended to aid in one-handed weapon manipulations. While a good rear sight can be used to rack the slide of a weapon, a properly serrated slide face provides a larger area to hit and will work off more surfaces. ATEi Side Serrations are machined with wider valleys and narrow peaks so it will bite into the hand better. Two additional serrations are added to the rear for a larger purchase area. Front serrations are provided to assist with a press check.

Note: the small Glock logo (right side of slide) has been cut through with these serrations, as well as the letters on the left which does leave some remnants. This is a case of function over form. Removing the letters would require the milling of an additional .010” because of the compressed steel under the rollmark, which would leave the serrations half as deep and half as useful.

OEM Minus Trigger Connector

The OEM Glock Minus connector is installed to take advantage of the superior angle of its engagement surface. This reduces the pull poundage of the trigger.

Optional Sights

Sights are an extremely personal choice. Fiber optic, night sights, red vs. green fiber optic, there is a vast number of choices. The A9 usually ships with stock sights to reflect this, but buyers can opt to have ATEi install Trijicon HD orange or Trijicon yellow front night sights as well as 10-8 Performance sights instead.

Optional Trigger Upgrade

An Overwatch Precision TAC Trigger flat face trigger upgrade is offered as an option on the A9. This Overwatch trigger reduces pre-travel as much as practical without compromising firearm safety, and features a small indexing hook to ensure consistent trigger finger placement. Its flat face reduces trigger reach by 0.24 in., idealizing it for small framed shooters, while simultaneously providing for a good, straight rearward press.

OEM Quality Refinish

The refinish on the A9 is a salt-bath Nitride, more commonly known in the industry as Glock “Tennifer” or Smith & Wesson “Melanite”. This provides good corrosion resistance and a durable black finish on the weapon.

Additional information can be found on the ATEi Guns FAQ page. Specific ordering information is on the ATEi A9 page. The ATEi A9 retails for $1,147.00 and will ship to your FFL almost immediately, except in cases of Hilary Clinton voters or card-carrying Communists, in which case the cost is $2,294.00 with an indeterminable ship time.

Magpul Rifleman Loop Sling

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Building on the heritage and proven performance of Magpul’s MS Sling series, the Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) is a durable, lightweight, and affordable shooting aid and retention device. Combining the best features of Rhodesian and 1907 match-style slings, the RLS was created with Magpul’s famous proprietary nylon mesh webbing and high-strength polymer hardware.

BFD6B258-1A40-424E-8F9E-382E5171932C

As a Standard Weapon Sling
In a retention role, the RLS serves dutifully as an unobtrusive weapon sling and retention device, securely keeping the rifle tucked behind the shoulder.

74768686-B042-497B-A25E-705B8B1BB57B

As a Stabilized Shooting Aid
When called upon, the RLS is rapidly employed with the adjustable forward loop gripping the Rifleman’s support arm, locking in a steady shooting position and firmly planting the rifle butt against the shoulder.

The Webbing
At the core of the RLS lies Magpul’s proprietary chafe-resistant 1 ¼” nylon mesh webbing. Its tubular construction eliminates harsh edges that can rub or snag and provides double layers of cushioned comfort against the end user while shouldered. During employment, the strap’s smooth texture remains comfortable, even when torqued against the user’s arm. Like all Magpul slings, colored webbing is NIR treated to reduce infrared signature.

77843464-FF0B-4CDF-BA6C-ED733F330DFD

The Hardware
The Magpul RLS features lightweight reinforced high-strength injection-molded polymer hardware, and a proprietary sling keeper that leaves no tails or loose straps, eliminating snag hazards and distractions.

Lightweight and Durable
The Magpul RLS was designed with mobility in mind. At a mere 4.4 oz, the optimized weight of the RLS doesn’t add unnecessary ounces to the rifle and weighs less than many competing slings and straps. Like all Magpul slings, the RLS has been extensively tested to its limit to ensure reliability and performance in wet, dry, and sandy conditions, to include load and drop testing. It’s been hiked with, biked with, swam, climbed, hunted and shot (a lot) with in a variety of field conditions.

Versatile and Affordable
The RLS price point offers more value and function than almost any other comparable sling on the market. At $19.95, it offers a substantial advantage to the rifleman for the money. Whether on a shooting range or mountain range, the RLS performs excellent on almost any rifle configuration and caliber combination. The highly-configurable RLS accepts all Magpul 1 ¼” sling accessories as well as most third party 1 ¼” sling attachments.

Available in Black or Coyote.
