MDM – ALG Defense / Raven Concealment Systems

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015


Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of holster options for pistols equipped with the ALG Defense’s 6-Second Mount. We’ve heard about a model from Raven Concealment Systems and Geiselle Automatics had a preproduction model in their booth.


Bill Geiselle told us that ALG Defense has placed an order with RCS for a run of holsters which should be available soon.

The ALG Defense 6-Second Mount Is Finally Here!

Friday, January 9th, 2015

ALG Defense 6-Second Mount


The ALG Defense 6-Second Mount was designed when a counter-terrorism unit approached ALG with a strict set of criteria. When entering a linear environment, such as an airplane or bus, the team’s primary weapon was their pistol and they were looking for a fast sighting method that was rugged and robust. Red dot scopes mounted directly to their pistol slides were showing a high failure rate, due to extreme acceleration or deceleration of the slide. The balance of the pistols was thrown off from the rearward scope mounting position, and the slides were weakened from machining a pocket for the scopes into the top of the slide.

The name, 6-Second Mount, comes from a description used by one of the operators: “The fight lasts 6 seconds… Either they’re dead or you’re dead, and aggression saves the day.”


Mounting an optic to your weapon decreases engagement time, allowing for faster and more accurate hits on target. By separating the sight from the reciprocating slide it allows the pistol to function properly without the added mass of the optic sight, producing a favorable weight distribution.

The ALG 6-Second Mount in machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and designed to fit Gen 3 Glock 17, 22, 24, 31, 34 and 35.
Black: $250
DDC: $265


ALG Defense – Sidewinder Muzzle Brake

Friday, January 9th, 2015

ALG Sidewinder


ALG Defense’s new Sidewinder muzzle brake is machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel and fits ½”-28 threaded 5.56mm barrels. The vents are angled upward at 3 and 9 o’clock deflecting gas to the sides, away from the ground, reducing dust and debris when firing from the prone position. The vents are larger on top than on the bottom which minimize the muzzle rise of the ALG Sidewinder. The unique design reduces muzzle rise and recoil, allowing the shooter to quickly get back on target for rapid follow up shots. The ALG Sidewinder includes a peel washer for proper timing and concentricity during installation. Available in both Bright Polish or Black Nitride finish.
MSRP: Nitride: $75
Bright Polish: $85

More New Products Coming from ALG Defense

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Forged Sling Swivel

In addition to the Ergonomic Modular Rail being unveiled at SHOT Show, ALG Defense will also be releasing a great accessory for it, the new Forged Sling Swivel (FSS). The FSS weighs in at roughly 0.5 ounces and is about half the weight of similar steel QD sling swivel assemblies. It is forged from 7075 T6 aluminum, which is the same aluminum and manufacturing process used to make mil-spec upper and lower receivers. This process allows the FSS to be very strong and can withstand pull forces of up to 800lbs. The body of the FSS is type 3 hardcoated for a durable finish, while the button is Black Nitride processed. Initially black will be the only color option with gray soon to follow. The FSS will retail at 32$!

Single Chamber Brake

Also debuting at SHOT is the Single Chamber Brake (SCB) which is a 5.56mm brake that is machined from 4140 chrome moly steel and is Black Nitride processed for wear and corrosion resistance. Most importantly the SCB will be retailing at $35!


ALG Defense – Ergonomic Modular Rail (EMR) System First Look – Updated

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014


AGL Defense will be introducing the Ergonomic Modular Rail (EMR) system at SHOT Show 2014. The EMR was developed as a lightweight, ergonomic, and modular option for all mil-spec AR-15 rifles.

The EMR forgoes M1913 rails and instead utilizes easy to install accessory rails that are 3D machined to fit the contour of the EMR. These rails can be secured at both the 45 and 90 degree quadrants, making them ideal for users that need to mount their sights, lights, or lasers at an offset angle. The rails are secured to the EMR via steel slide nuts that can be replaced if lost or damaged by cross threading. The EMR also features integrated quick disconnect (QD) swivel attachment points, further reducing the overall weight of the system.

The EMR is machined from aircraft grade aluminum. It is mounted to the upper receiver via a 2.25″ barrel nut also machined from aircraft grade aluminum and hard coat anodized for a durable surface. The EMR also includes a proprietary ALG EMR barrel nut wrench. The rail secures to the barrel nut via 6 mounting bolts which also allow for easy removal and reattachment.

The EMR will be available in 10″, 12″, and 13″ lengths. It will be initially introduced with Black anodizing, however Grey will also be an option.

Update: We received this info from ALG Defense. Because the EMR was designed to be a lightweight system, there are currently no plans to make available a continuous top rail. The Geissele SMR MK series of rails would be the best option for individuals that would like to add a DBAL, laser, or top mounted lights.

10” 6.56oz (by itself)
12” 7.84oz (by itself)
Barrel nut + Screws: 2.4oz
ACCY rail weight is .81oz. (including screws and slide nuts) each
