October 23rd, 2014

rifle-1

The Benjamin Armada is a .22 caliber pre-charged pneumatic rifle which features a Magpul M-LOK modular accessory system forend. According to the manufacturer, the Armada is the first commercially available PCP rifle that “allows shooters the same breadth of modularity and user configurability as enjoyed by the AR community.” It achieves this through the aforementioned M-LOK forend, as well as designing the rifle to Mil-Spec dimensions for the grip and stock interfaces.

The Armada is capable of delivering velocities of up to 1000 FPS with 32 foot pounds of energy. Included is a 10-shot magazine. The rifle features full suppression, and is capable of 30 shots per fill. The receiver has a machined Picatinny rail, and the bolt is reversible for left-handed shooters. Also included is an on-board gauge and two-stage trigger.

Unfortunately, the images aren’t showing the production model. Rather, it’s a special one-of-a-kind model that’s currently up for auction on Gunbroker through November 2nd, with the proceeds going to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. The package contains:

– Magpul M-LOK Modular Locking System
– Magpul PRS (Precision Rifle / Sniper) adjustable stock
– Magpul MBUS Pro Sight front and rear
– Magpul MIAD GEN 1.1 Grip Type 1
– Magpul M-LOK Cantilever Rail / Light mount
– Surefire Scout weapon light
– Tarjac Multi-Cam finish
– Zeiss TERRA 3x 4-12×50 mm scope
– Telescoping bipod
– 3 removable/configurable, M-LOK compatible handguards
– Custom embroidered Benjamin rifle case

The Armada is built in America.

October 22nd, 2014

cool news from Germany

LUPUS Training & Mentoring Resources, a training and consulting company from Germany, is introducing the first two modules of their TAP System. Developed together with Mayflower R&C and their German retail partner Gearmaniacs, the TAPS Modules are designed to offer a hybrid kydex-nylon solution for users that prefer the use of kangaroo pouches in their platecarriers.

TAPS is compatible with most kangaroo pouch equipped Platecarriers but is optimized for products made by Mayflower R&C and Velocity Systems. TAPS facilitates magazine extraction since there is no flap or bungee needed for retention. The modules are velcroed into position and are ready to use. Installed properly, they enable the user to carry up to four AR-style magazines and two pistol magazines in a small package.

The first Modules are Single AR15 and Single G36/Double AR15.

Available via Gearmaniacs in black and made in Germany from German Mil-Spec Materials by manufacturer ZentauroN. A Berry Compliant version of the TAPS will be released soon along with Pistol\Flashlight and Baton Pouches. There are also Combo Versions planned.

New Survival Video Series From Panteao – Make Ready To Survive

October 22nd, 2014

I am super stoked about this new series of videos. They have lined up some serious talent and each title will give you a variety of expert points of view on the subject at hand.

Survival Series Full Page Ad

Columbia, SC, October 22, 2014 – Panteao Productions is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the Make Ready to Survive instructional video series. This line of instructional videos is a departure for Panteao from the firearms training videos the company is known for producing.

“This was a pretty large undertaking for us. In order to get the shots we needed, our crew filmed on location in the everglades of FL, the back country of Ohio, the mountains of Colorado, and eastern Texas. Five instructors were selected to teach the series based on their background and life experiences. Each brought something different to the table and combined makes for one heck of a learning experience,” said John Tormey, Director of the Make Ready to Survive Series.

Fernando Coelho, president of Panteao Productions, added, “We received a tremendous amount of support from manufacturers and suppliers when we told them about the survival series. It was with their help that we were able to make this series possible. We originally thought we would have content for three videos. When we were finished filming we ended up with thirteen different titles in the series.”

Instead of reality show entertainment like the current television shows on prepping and doomsday survival, the Make Ready to Survive videos are a true tutorial to help you and your family. Whether you live in the heart of the city, on the outskirts in a quiet neighborhood, or out on a farm, the Make Ready to Survive videos show you techniques that are critical for survival, review gear and supplies to have on hand, and all aspects of proper planning. Most importantly, the videos will bring you piece of mind.

The instructors in the series include former US Army Delta Operator Paul Howe, Dave Canterbury from the Pathfinder Self Reliance School, US Army Special Forces Green Beret Kyle Harth, disaster preparedness consultant and author Jim Cobb, and NE MacDougald, who started his career in Vietnam with the 519th Military Intelligence Bn (MACV), and today is an author and consultant.

The video series will debut both on DVD and HD streaming video in December with three titles from the series. Then additional titles will be released each month from January through April of 2015. More info on the survival series can be found on the Panteao website at: panteao.com/survive
