Introducing the New Sheriff of Baghdad MFQD swivel B-Sling

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

June 3, 2019 – SOB Tactical is proud to announce the latest addition to the B-sling line up, the new MFQD. The MFQD, (Movement Free Quick Detach) swivel solves the problem of excessive movement common to nearly all QD swivels on the market. The MFQD Swivel is available now at SOBTactical.com.

When QD swivels were first repurposed from the sporting market to the tactical world, they retained the “swivel” loop attachment commonly used on rifles for the last 100 years. This movable bail swings like a bucket handle, and has been prone to failure under load and heavy use. If the movable bail loop fails, the release button will eject and will lose its ball bearings rendering the entire QD is useless. Shrek has seen this failure occur numerous times, and has separated the working systems to insure less failures by making it an unbreakable one piece.  Additionally, when slinging a carbine to go hands-free and releasing positive control of the weapon, the weight and position of the weapon shifts and sags with the legacy design. This unwanted movement is greatly reduced by the MFQD. 

Constructed from Billet 7075 T6 Aluminum and Milspec Anodized, the MFQD features a single, solid body construction that follows the profile of the weapon. The unique triangular shape is rounded and streamlined to reduce snags, and sits low to the weapon wherever attached. Internally, the MFQD features tempered stainless steel bearings and release spring for longevity, reliability and corrosion resistance. 

“Our new MFQD is specially designed for combat arms of all types,” said John “Shrek” Mcphee, owner of The Sheriff of Baghdad Tactical. “We developed the smartest solution to the movement challenge of every other QD swivel on the market.”

Paired with the classic SOB Tactical B-sling, the new MFQD swivel creates a winning combo. McPhee has been developing B-slings for more then 20 years, each one with the gunfighter in mind. From Bosnia to Iraq and Afghanistan, the B-Sling has proven itself countless times on the battlefield. 

“Our new B-sling with MFQD swivel is simple, practical and uses minimal materials to keep the weight and bulk down unlike the many ‘over engineered’ sling designs that have flooded the market in recent years,” continued McPhee.

Versatile enough for any rifle, it is extremely intuitive to use allowing quick adjustments with your non-firing hand using the lanyard release equipped buckle. With this design, the adjustment buckle remains in the exact same position regardless of how loose or tight the sling is, so you’ll never have to search for it or take your eye off target. Simply pull the free end near the lanyard towards your body to tighten. Grab the lanyard and push rifle to firing position to loosen and shoot. The MFQD B-sling employs “Quick to shoot” (Q2S™) technology as this is the most important function of any rifle sling in combat, to get the weapon back into the fight instantly from an administrative mode of carry. 

The new MFQD is available now at sobtactical.com, in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green, Multicam and Multicam Black, with more colors coming soon. Each sling comes with a color matched combat band for sling stowage. For dealer and distributor inquiries, please contact sales@sobtactical.com All B-slings are made with pride in America with 100% Berry compliant materials, by Americans who are blind.

Tyrant Designs Announces

Saturday, June 1st, 2019

Tyrant Designs CNC introduces a new chapter in compensator history with the addition to their first series production for the Sig Sauer P365, their SIG P365 T-Comp Compensator. Images and details of their P365 compensator can be seen on their website www.tyrantcnc.com. This new model is extreme on every level as it represents a new direction for compensator design. Utilizing a two piece design Tyrant has eliminated the need for set screws or loctite, instead using a housing & stem concept that is self containing.

During an up close look of the compensator one can tell the use of dual chambers that run .250” in depth. Overall dimensions line up perfectly to the profile of the P365, adding about .750 of an inch past the end of the slide.

The Tyrant Designs P365 T-Comp is also the first compensator made specifically for the Sig P365, promising unparalleled performance against the more traditional & one size fits most comps. Their product description reads as below;

The Tyrant Designs CNC Sig Sauer P365 Compensator, known as the P365 T-Comp, dramatically reduces muzzle rise and sensed recoil, allowing much quicker target re-acquisition. Compatible with ½-28 threaded barrels our compensator requires no modification to your Sig P365, and once assembled fits most open ended holsters. The T-Comp works on all Sig P365 configurations and will function using almost any grain ammunition.

The real enginuity is in how the T-Comp is installed. Utilizing a two piece design our Sig comp installs securely in seconds WITHOUT the need for set screws or any other faulty attachment methods. Working on a concept focused on uncompromised innovation allowed considerable engineering freedom in developing significant solutions. Once attached, the Tyrant Compensator will not come loose while operating your firearm, or while holstering/unholstering it. Whether you are a range day goer or competitive shooter we are confident our Sig Sauer compensator not only outperforms the competition but sets a new standard for compensator innovation.

Tyrant Designs offers their new Sig Sauer P365 compensator in 3 different, two tone colors: Black on Black, Black on Nickel, Black on Gold. They have stated that their first production run is limited and that all dealer allocations have been filled. To see more head to www.tyrantcnc.com.

PS Magazine Reminds You To Protect Your M320 Sight

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

PS, the US Army’s Preventive Maintenance Monthly has this reminder:

Too many M320A1 grenade launcher sight supports are being cracked or broken. The only fix is to order the entire leaf sight assembly kit, NSN 1005-01-564-2663, for $55. And sometimes it can take a long time to get the kit.

But much of this damage is preventable if Soldiers and armorers just exercise a little care. The most critical thing to remember is don’t stack anything on top of an M320A1!

In the arms room, armorers often store M320A1s on shelves and then pile equipment on top, including other grenade launchers. Laying grenade launchers on shelves is fine. Just don’t put anything on top of them.

Same thing goes for trips to the field. Don’t pile equipment on M320A1s and don’t let them bounce around in the back of a truck. A good investment is a sturdy container for transport that protects launchers from equipment and feet. You can probably find containers around the unit that will work.
