U.S. Elite Gear is currently selling a limited edition Oakley SI Fuel Cell with a “Kryptek-like” Ultrablend Desert Sage Cerakote coat. The Black Iridum lenses exceed ANSI Z87.1 optical standards for impact protection, and provide 100% filtering of UVA, UVB, and UVC and harmful blue light up to 400 nm. The frame is made of stress-resistant O Matter material, painted and cured with Cerakote Generation II Firearm coating.
Two things we are fans of at SSD are guns and Scouts. It’s even better when we can put the two together like in this story.
A young man who just became an Eagle Scout received this rifle as a gift from his father. Best of all, “in front of everyone, the first thing he did was to open the bolt and clear the rifle before really looking it over. He had a smile from ear to ear.” his father stated. According to Cerakote, this carbine features H-226 Patriot Brown, H-235 Coyote Tan and H-199 Desert Sand.
Bravo Company has joined forces with Haley Strategic Partners to produce The Jack, as in “Jack of all Trades.” The technologies integrated into this carbine build are impressive, to say the least.
Built on a Bravo Company lower and upper, the 5.56mm carbine relies on BCM’s 14.5″ Government Profile Barrel (and mid-length gas system) with a permanent mounting of the brand new BCMGUNFIGHTER Compensator making it a 16″ Civilian Legal Barrel. This is paired with the excellent Geissele Super Modular Rail mounted with a BCM Diopter Front Folding Battle Sight and Rear Folding Battle Sight.
HSP also specified the ALG Defense ACT Trigger which gives you a Geissele quality trigger in a US GI package as well as the newly debuted B5 Systems SOPMOD Bravo Stock mounted to a Bravo Company receiver extension. The Jack also includes a BCM GUNFIGHTER Charging Handle and Mod I Pistol Grip. Weighing in at 6 lbs 11 oz (with light, mount and irons), The Jack incorporates the Inforce WML-HSP (Momentary Only White Light Black Body) mounted to a Haley Strategic Thorntail Offset Light Mount built by Impact Weapons Components right out of the box. All of this topped off with a custom Disruptive Grey tone Cerakote finish by Joint Force Enterprises. This gun is ready to go as soon as you pick it up from the FFL. The only thing you will want to do to upgrade The Jack is to add an optic of your choice.

I am continually impressed at the quality of BCM guns and the number of products that are debuting on The Jack is a testament to the hard work that Haley Strategic Partners put into working with their industry affiliates to make this a reality.
As gun culture 2.0 becomes more prominent don’t you think it’s about time that we see some alternative firearms colors to Black and Flat Dark Earth?
After all, what’s the point of Cerakote, DuraCoat and others producing all of those color options if they aren’t going to be put to use? Take for example this brace of Ruger pistols coated in Cerakote’s H-243 Safety Orange with H-146 Graphite Black by Rogue Tactical Coatings. Sure, it looks like a Nerf gun to me but for a Beaver support somewhere, it’s attractive.
And, as we begin to see more and more ladies enjoying shooting sports, I’d expect to see some innovative paint schemes showing up. Believe it or not, not every woman dreams of a pink gun. We’d love to see some of your firearms out there that have received unconventional paint jobs. Why be boring?
