Q Mini Fix

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Q has expanded their firearms offering with the introduction of Mini Fix, seen here nestled between The Fix and Honey Badger. Q founder, Kevin Brittingham, shared some information on this new design with us.


The Q Mini Fix is a scaled down version of The Fix bolt gun with a receiver that is 1/2″ shorter. Designed to fit M4 magazines, the Mini Fix will be offered in pistol (300 BLK) and rifle (224 Valkyrie) formats.


The pistol Mini Fix features an 8″ 300 BLK barrel with 1:5 twist and a Q designed Stabilizing Brace built exclusively for this firearm by SB Tactical. The Q Brace is not depicted in any of these photos.


The pistol has an overall length of 17″ including the mounted Cherry Bomb muzzle brake, which accepts the Trash Panda and Thunder Chicken silencers. There is also a full length top Pic rail and the handguard covers the 8″ barrel. Here are some photos to give you an idea of how long it is.

As you can see, this model with the stock from The Fix weighs 4lbs 11oz, but it will weigh even less once the Q Brace is installed.


The rifle Mini Fix in 224 Valkyrie will come with a Q match barrel and the folding stock from The Fix.


As an aside, Brittingham told me that so far, they are seeing the best performance for the .224 when using PRI 6.8 magazines, although they continue to evaluate others. The rifle will ship with what they determine is best.


Brittingham related that at this point, the final detail they haven’t worked out yet, is whether they’ll incorporate M-Lok or use Q-Sert for attachments. Q-Sert is machined from 17-4 rectangular stock with an anchor at the back and pressed into place. Below is an image which shows two handguard. The top incorporates Q-Sert, while the bottom is constructed to the M-Lok standard.

Both versions are only available in the clear hard coat anodizing seen in the photos. The anodizing will look slightly different with each material so you won’t get a uniform hue across the entire gun, but it’s one of the many features which makes the Mini Fix different from everything else on the market.


Mini Fix is an adaptable design and a fixed stock and hinge adapter will be available. This way, a pistol owner may register it as an SBR, if desired. Additionally, Brittingham tells me he expects to offer .223 and 6.5 Grendel barrels.


Because Mini Fix features 80% parts commonality with The Fix, production is already in progress with shipping planned for late 2nd Quarter, 2018.

To pre-order, you’ll need to first make a $100 donation to Special Operations Care Fund and then pay half of the $2699 up front, to Q.

Blue Force Gear and Q Partner to Develop Silencer Pouch and Weapons Case

Monday, February 20th, 2017

POOLER, GA., Feb, 2017 – Blue Force Gear®, the designer and manufacturer of the world’s finest weapon slings and tactical equipment, today announced a partnership with Q™ to create a custom silencer pouch for Q’s latest line of high-design silencers and a weapon case for its newest bolt-action rifle “The Fix.” The new silencer pouch and weapon case will be available beginning in June 2017.


“We are thrilled to work with Q™,” said Ashley Burnsed, CEO of Blue Force Gear. “This collaboration brings together two great companies looking to deliver quality gear and products to its customers, and I know the silencer pouch and weapon case will not disappoint.”

“When we partnered with Blue Force Gear to create two of our newest accessory products, we were really excited to see another brand in the industry looking to push the envelope,” said Kevin Brittingham, CEO of Q™. “The designs are innovative, creative and represent what Q is all about. They are not something you’ve seen before. We look forward to partnering with Blue Force Gear on many more projects in the future.”

24 Hour Warning – Q Launching Pre-Orders of half NELSON & FULL NELSON Suppressors Via Instagram Live

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Tomorrow at 3 PM Eastern standard time, Q will once again take to Instagram Live to showcase and launch the pre-order for their half NELSON & FULL NELSON suppressors.


Here are the specs.


I already know what you’re thinking. Pending suppressor legislation for the liberalization of Suppressor regulation, known as the “Hearing Protection Act” will be great for everyone and it’s happening soon. However, it’s still just a bill and we don’t know when it will pass. While the odds look good, when it does become law, there will be a huge demand for Suppressors. Concurrently, prices will spike, at least temporarily, due to demand. Purchasing the ones you want now not only locks in your price, but also guarantees you’ll get them.


Q understands your concerns. Many don’t want to spend the $200 stamp tax in the event the HPA passes; so Q is offering $200 off now on each suppressor, and then another $200 rebate when HPA passes in the future. That’s a potential saving of $400 per suppressor and the $200 discount is just that, and not a voucher you can use on one of their other products. You can spend it on whatever you want, but I understand Robby suggests making it rain at the gentlemen’s club.

-Get your suppressors now, before they are impossible to find once HPA becomes law
-Q is opening up pre-orders to *individuals* only Saturday 2/18 @ 3 PM, join them on Instagram Live
-100 of each suppressor are available for order and individuals will receive $200 off their order

Those of you who want to ensure you’ll get one of limited pre-order suppressors can download your for here and upload it to tomorrow at 3:00 PM EST.

Join the event at They are always a good time and Kevin usually lets something slip that isn’t supposed to be released yet.

Q Fix Pre-Order Goes Live Tonight

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

During an IG Live broadcast earlier tonite, the Q crew showed off The Fix bolt action rifle and announced that pre-orders go live tonight at Midnight EST.

The pre-order is $2795 and limited to 500 rifles. Both .308 (16″) and 6.5 Creedmoor (22″) will be available. The Bartlein barrels will come with the Cherry Bomb flash hider and The Fix can be pre-ordered with the Trash PANDA silencer with matching serial number. The .308 is clear anodized with Blue accents. The 6.5 will offer a different accent color. I’m rooting for Orange. The clear anodizing is stronger than pigmented and means that parts made from different materials will have slightly different colors.

Rifles include two Magpul PMAGs and pre-orders will come with a Blue Force Gear weapon case in Blue. The shoulder strap is also a sling and there are modular pouches for silencer, magazines and a clear topped pouch for accessories.

Dealers must order at least five rifles to get dealer pricing.

There will be additional barrels in the future. There is a scope mount and short handguard available as well.

Look for mid-summer delivery.
