It’s One of Those Days

Feel Free to Sing Along…

What would you… rather be doing, Atkinson?

[mayhem]
…but, no matter where or when there was fighting to be done,…
[patriotic music]
…it has always been the calm leadership of the Officer class that has made the British Army what it is.

Solar Tactical AK47 Magazine Funnel Enhanced Reload

Monday, July 30th, 2012

One of the chief complaints about the AK-series of rifles is that they are not very ergonomic. The Solar Tactical AK47 Magazine Funnel Enhanced Reload (MFER) is an easy to install after market product that helps alleviate one of those issues; the lack of a magwell.

Granted, it’s not for the purist, but for those who are looking for a little bit of a mag well to help funnel that magazine in place, the MFER is a great choice. As you can see, it’s easy to install and doesn’t change the overall configuration of the weapon.

The MFER fits all AKM pattern AK47 style rifles along with 7.62 Saigas. (Will not fit the standard Yugo pattern AK.)

Daniel Defense Introduces EZ CAR Rail 9.0

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Daniel Defense has announced the latest addition to their EZ CAR family of accessories; the EZ CAR Rail™ 9.0, a handguard replacement option for AR’s with mid-length gas systems.

The two-piece EZ CAR Rail installs easily with no special tools or modifications to the rifle. It is a non-free float design that mounts to a standard delta ring and handguard cap (round or triangular) of a mid-length gas system with no modifications to the host weapon.

The EZ CAR 9.0 is precision machined from Aerospace Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum, and finished with Military Specification Type III Hardcoat Anodizing. It is 9.0 is 9.2” in length, 2.4” wide, has an inner diameter of 1.38”, and weighs in at just 12.4 ounces.

Daniel Defense believes this move will create yet more opportunity for enhancement to AR15s with factory installed plastic handguards. “In this case, it’s not about developing a brand new design. Expanding on an existing product to complement a mid-length gas system just made sense,” says Jordan Hunter, Director of Marketing for Daniel Defense. Backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee, the EZ CAR™ 9.0 is a great alternative.

The Raider from MMI Tactical

Monday, July 30th, 2012

The Raider from MMI Tactical is a double walled one man shelter that weighs under two pounds. The inner tent consists mostly of permethrine treated mesh so it works well in warmer and more humid climates that single walled tents.You can set it up as mesh only if your only concern is bugs or rainfly only if your only concern is light rain for ultra-lightweight use. You can also get a removable footprint for only five ounces more. On the interior it is extremely spacious with a gear clip directly at the top of the rib for something like a lantern or a place to hang NODS. It is low profile and has a side opening door so it is easier to enter and exit than most comparable tents. You can also get the Raider in a variety of camouflage by special order.

Look for them at the MMI Outdoor booth at Outdoor Retailer 41181.
