SMRT Sniper Grip Unveiled At 2019 NRA Annual Meeting

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

Enhanced Tactical Arms is proud to unveil the SMRT Sniper Grip at the 2019 NRA Annual Meeting at the Pride Fowler Industries display (Booth 116). The SMRT Sniper Grip is designed specifically for long range shooters and fits any weapon equipped with an AR15 style grip.  The patented grip includes a groove to improve fingertip indexing when using the Sympathetic Movement Reduction Technique employed by United States Marine Corps Scout Snipers.  Testing by a retired Marine Corps Scout Sniper Instructor showed a 20% increase in hit probabilities at 900 yards when using the SMRT Sniper Grip in conjunction with the SMRT Technique.

The grip is constructed from highly durable material similar to that used in the construction of modern polymer framed pistols and coated with KG Kote for improved durability. Travis Pierce, Enhanced Tactical Arms Military & Law Enforcement Testing, will have a limited number of SMRT Sniper Grips available for purchase on the show floor and will also be taking drop ship orders (shipped in a flat envelope) for customers within the Continental United States who want to avoid transporting products home after the show for no additional cost.

Free shipping will only be available for orders placed at NRAAM!  The SMRT Sniper Grip is available with a molded Macro-Tread and finished in black or FDE KG Kote for $69.99 plus tax and sales fees.  The SMRT Sniper Grip is also available with a composite High Traction Maritime Finish for $99.99 plus tax and sales fees.

Travis will be available at the Pride Fowler Industries booth (Booth 116) to explain the Sympathetic Movement Reduction Technique and give NRAAM participants a chance to see the SMRT Sniper Grip first hand.  Please send any media, sales, or demonstration/sample requests via e-mail to SALES@ETAC-ARMS.COM


The Sympathetic Movement Reduction Technique (SMRT) is used to isolate a shooter’s trigger finger, minimizing unwanted movement (induced by breathing, an inconsistent grip, and/or involuntary muscle movements). United States Marine Corps Scout Snipers typically transition to this technique when engaging targets over 700 yards using a bipod-equipped weapon.  

The shooter will begin by moving the bottom three fingers of their firing hand to the front of the grip within the slotted area and will apply a very light rearward pressure.  This provides an index to improve consistency both with and without gloves.  The shooter then moves their thumb over the trigger finger side of the hand, to minimize thumb contact on the weapon.  The shooter will then lean into the weapon to load the bipod prior to engaging the trigger.

Field test results indicate that the SMRT Sniper Grip (when used in conjunction with the technique previously described) can increase the number of hits on an IPSC target by approximately 20% at 900 yards.


The SMRT Sniper Grips are manufactured using a chemically stable and heat resistant advanced polymer (similar to the compounds used in modern polymer framed pistols) and finished with KG Gun Kote for increased thermal properties and durability.  Infrared reflective backstrap panels are available for military and law enforcement customers.

The SMRT Sniper Grip is also available with a high traction composite finish designed for maritime operations and gloved use.  The shooter can reduce the degree of traction provided by the composite finish by adding several layers of spray paint over the KG Kote.  Custom colors, finishes, and body designs are available subject to minimum order quantities.  Each grip is hand-finished; therefore, shooters may find slight variations depending on the specific production batch.  Minor wear in the KG Kote coating may be eligible for factory touch-up (for a fee) through Enhanced Tactical Arms, LLC.  

SMRT Sniper Grips have been used by United States Conventional and Special Operations Forces in combat and during real-world Law Enforcement operations.  Enhanced Tactical Arms, LLC offers training for armorers and shooters for shooters upon request.  Please feel free to contact Enhanced Tactical Arms, LLC with questions or orders.

Choate Machine and Tool Introduces the Choate Modular Stock, a Modular Chassis System For Remington Pattern Bolt Action Rifles

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019

Bald Knob, AR – Choate Machine and Tool, a market leading designer, manufacturer and OEM supplier of rifle stocks, shotgun magazine extensions and firearms accessories, has introduced The Choate Modular Stock (C. Mod) chassis system.   This is a true modular rifle stock, allowing the user to change the forend or butt stock without removing the rifle action from the main chassis section.   This modularity provides the ultimate in adaptability and versatility while not disturbing the critical action-to-stock fit so reconfirming zero is unnecessary after configuring the system as needed.

The heart of the C. Mod rifle stock system is the precision CNC machined chassis.  Made from a solid block of aluminum, the chassis rigidly holds the action while the desired butt stock and forend can be changed as needed.   The chassis uses the time-tested AR style magazine release. This eliminates accidentally dropping the magazine by hitting a release lever located in front of the trigger guard. The C Mod. magazine will accept cartridges up to 2.860 inches in length such as the 308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor and 260 Remington, as well as other popular cartridges like 6mm Remington, 257 Roberts and 7X57 Mauser.  Each C. Mod chassis comes with two magazines and the required action screws.

The ultimate in versatility is provided by the C. Mod Stock system of optional forends and butt stocks.  Forends include a target/varmint style forend with a wide, flat bottom and a sniper/tactical style forend that is shorter and slightly tapered toward the muzzle end.  Both come with a T-rail and bipod adapter.  Butt stocks included two conventional types including a basic tactical style, a fully customizable target/tactical style with adjustable check piece and length-of-pull.  Choate also offers two very specialized butt stocks for the C. Mod Rifle Stock including a telescoping AR style butt stock (compatible with any AR butt stock) and a pistol grip folding stock for the ultimate in portability.  All butt stocks and forends come with the required hardware for rock solid installation.

The new Choate Modular stock is available for the Remington 700 short action and Remington Model 7.  MSRP is $710 and includes the CNC machined chassis anodized matted black, the tactical forend and the tactical butt stock both also in matte black and two magazines.

Armageddon Gear – Sticky Gamechanger OG

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

There’s never been a more aptly named firearm accessory than Armageddon Gear’s Gamechanger. Now they’ve made it even better by adding a new sticky fabric to strategic areas of the along the gusset, top, and a single side.

The rest of the design remains the same. You get almost five pounds of pelletized-polymer fill (zippered access to allow removal of fill), configured to offer stability thanks to the split design at the base which remains stabile on almost any irregular surface. It’s just that now, it’s not going to slip once you assume a shooting position.

Visit Adaptive Tactical at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, Booth 4307
