Redback One / Knight’s Armament Co – Aimpoint High Mount

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Here’s a sneak peak of Red Back One’s new high mount for the Aimpoint Micro, designed and developed by Jason Falla and manufactured by Knight’s Armament Company.

This is a list of features that drove the somewhat unique design of this mount:

1. It is ideal for maintaining a more natural head up shooting position which maximizes speed of sight acquisition and minimizes the effects of eye strain and sternocleidomastoid fatigue.
2. It allows increased performance when using CBRNE equipment and gas masks with the ability to adopt a natural cheek weld for shooting.
3. It is perfect when integrating passive targeting methods with night vision goggles when operating on modern battlefields.
4. It weighs significantly less when of other optics mounting systems due to its design and materials.
5. It will accept a magnifier or NVD behind the combat optic for longer range shooting and scanning.
6. Unlike legacy systems RBO’s mount will allow the end user to utilize the BUIS as a redundant system without the need to remove the mount.

SHOT Show – Grey Ghost Gear

Friday, January 20th, 2017

The Super Dave GT Sling from Grey Ghost Gear is wicked light at 2.2 oz. It’s also swoopy, what with the laser cut holes to cut the air while you bring your gun to bear. Additionally, they’ve incorporated Velcro in order to accept nametags or your favorite moral patch.

Available now in Blaxk and Coyote. Also available without the aerodynamic laser cut holes for you squares who don’t want to look cool. In case you can’t tell, I like the version with the holes.

SHOT Show 17 – TNVC/Unity Tactical TAPS Update

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

During Range Day we mentioned the production version of the Tactical Augmented Pressure Switch. To clarify, there are two variants and externally both look the same because they have the same basic functionality.

The TAPS mounts to M-Lok, KeyMod and Pic rail and includes 7″ SureFire/Insight or 7″ Insight/Insight leads. Once again, it requires a 2032 battery for constant on, but even without it, momentary still works. The only difference from the base model and the TAPSpro is that the pro model is programmable. Consequently, there’s a difference in price. The TAPS is $139 and TAPSpro is $239. Considering other switches are more expensive (and not programmable) that’s not a bad price. Plus, TAPS is 100% Made in USA. Additionally, the switches are available in FDE and Black.

These have been manufactured. The products will be loaded on the website and begin shipping next week.

I hope this answers any questions that have come up.

Developed in conjunction with Leupold for elements of USSOCOM, it is the first Leupold approved mounting solution for the Delta Point Pro. Made from 300 series stainless steel, it allows the shooter to easily switch between the irons and DPP. Obviously, it’s also designed to work seemlessly with ZEV’s proprietary slide cut.

FirstSpear Range Day 17 – TNVC TAPS

Monday, January 16th, 2017

TNVC has made it happen! The Tactical Applications Pressure Switch (TAPS) from Unity Tactical has made the transition from low rate to full production.

It mounts directly to a Mil STD 1913 rail and its two pressure pads are user programmable to slaved or individual modes so you can control both light and laser from a single pad. You can control momentary or constant with the switch.

One lead works with SureFire lights while the other interfaces with Steiner or Insight lasers. It requires a single CR-2032 battery but will still offer momentary On with a dead or no battery.

ZEV Technologies New PRO Plus Magwell

Just like their PRO version released in 2016, the ZEV PRO Plus Magwell is a stylish one piece aluminum design, but the similarities end there. With the professional shooter in mind, the new PRO Plus was designed with a larger tapered well opening on all sides to aide in faster, more consistent magazine changes. It also incorporates a pass-through hole at the back for lanyard retention.

Designed to fit both Gen-3 and Gen-4 GLOCK frames.

BLACKHAWK! Announces New Products for 2017

Friday, January 13th, 2017

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (January 12, 2017) – BLACKHAWK!, an industry leader in tactical products, will launch several new products to dealers at booth 14551 at the 2017 Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas, January 17 to 20.

The new BLACKHAWK! AR-15 No-latch Ambi Charging Handle is a drop-in upgrade to any AR-15. The handle is automatically held to the receiver with a leaf spring, eliminating the need to squeeze a small latch to charge the rifle. The innovative design gives full ambidexterious control, which is welcome news for left-handed shooters. The distinctive over-molded handle provides a larger pull point from both sides, easily clearing low-set optics.

Pistol-grip shotguns are renowned for their ease of handling and manipulation, though running rounds through them can take a physical toll. The BLACKHAWK! Knoxx BreachersGrip Gen III mitigates the wear-and-tear with a patent-pending recoil reduction system that mitigates kickback from the heavy loads. The ergonomic design allows the user to comfortably control the shotgun in every scenario.

The new Knoxx AR Pistol Grip improves shooting accuracy and precision with the ability to manipulate the firearm. Offering premium comfort and stability for the AR platform, the improved grip angle and palm swell offer an intuitive fit, and the grip is further improved by the textured surface.

Two new apparel items will also be added to the Spring 2017 BLACKHAWK! line-up. The Convoy ¼ Zip Shirt, and the Stretch Shield Pant. The new BLACKHAWK! Convoy ¼ Zip Shirt is made from a knit fabric and stretch cover stitching to allow for excellent range of motion. The,two-tone mélange pattern helps to minimize imprinting of a weapon and a Teflon Shield+ coating repels stains, oil and water. Chest and sleeve pockets allow for everyday item storage. The new BLACKHAWK! Stretch Shield pant features mechanical stretch rip stop fabric and articulated knees, and delivers maximum movement and flexibility. Teflon Shield+ protective coating and quick-dry capabilities keep this pant clean and comfortable. Bartacks and rivets at the seams reinforce high stress points, and strategically placed pockets allow for secure accessory storage.

Several new footwear items will also be available to dealers at SHOT. These items include two casual wear options, the Terrain Lo shoe and the Terrain mid boot. Both of these footwear options are ideal for both training and every day wear. Comfort and support are emphasized with these styles, which provide memory foam insole cushions and Agion antimicrobial lining to control odor.

Other boot options include:
-The BLACKHAWK! Defense, a military-grade boot that is AR 670-1 Compliant, includes a Vibram outsole for maximum traction and stability and an OrthoLite Insole to cushion the foot.
-The BLACKHAWK! Street is a versatile, comfortable boot with Lightweight 1000 Denier Padded Nylon to add reinforcement and extra stability.
-The Force boot features a HydroGuard + Breathe Right moisture wicking membrane that is both waterproof and breathable.
-The V3 boot’s quality construction starts from the ground up with a Vibram outsole and an OrthoLite Insole. The V3 goes on and off easily with the NATO Lace System. Plus there’s room to store small gear, such as a knife, in the Lycra Lateral Pocket.

BLACKHAWK!, a Vista Outdoor, Inc. brand, is committed to providing the best class of tactical gear. For more information, visit
