The Mystery Cinch

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

When the Mystery Conch first came out, we created a quick video to show you how it works.

But Mystery Ranch has done us ne better and produced a great video that not only shows how it works but also how to install it.

The Mystery Cinch was designed to improve the comfort of nearly any pack over body armor. Now issued to every Marine as part of their new pack system, the Mystery Cinch routes a pack’s shoulder straps out of the user’s armpits and effectively marries the pack straps to the user’s armor. You can shoulder a weapon easier, blood flow to hands increases and overall comfort and fatigue levels are improved. When you’re ready to jettison the pack, simply unsnapping and pulling the quick-release webbing immediately releases the pack straps. It works for everybody, not just Marines.

Beez Combat Systems – Triple AK Shingle

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

New from Beez Combat Systems, the BCS AK47 triple magazine shingle is designed to carry three 30 round AK47 magazines. The open top 3 mag AK47 shingle can be mounted to any PALS compatible vest or plate carrier. The shingle has some unique features not found on other AK shingles.

The back of the triple mag shingle has four rows of PALS webbing for attachment. The shingle can be attached with MALICE clips, Speed clips and other clip systems on the market.


In order to to reduce weight, keep it low profile and provide a distinctly different shingle to the market, BCS angled the corners of both the top and bottom to give it a unique look. The AK mags fit in the shingle perfectly in both direction because of the curve of the mag.
The internal pouch provides additional storage for small items and increases the carrying capacity. The pouch is secured with 2” Velcro across the entire length of the pouch.

Raven Concealment Systems Launches the TopStop

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Carbines are kind of like Legos and if you’re like me, you have several uppers and lowers that can be combined to make different rifles. A few months ago Raven Concealment Systems handed me an oddly shaped piece of plastic. I turned it over and quickly realized what it was for. If you own a bunch of uppers, then you definitely need some of these.


The TopStop is a one-piece, snap-on cover for the upper receiver of a 5.56mm AR upper receiver. It is injection molded from high-strength nylon. It attaches over the bottom and rear of the upper receiver when the rifle is broken down, and keeps the charging handle and bolt group from sliding out of the upper. It also helps keep the dirty lube from dripping out of the upper and all over your hands and rifle case, as well as preventing dirt, sand, and other debris from getting into the receiver.


The TopStop is especially handy for shooters using HK 416’s, because of how easily the bolt group can spill out of the back of the receiver when breaking down the rifle for transport. In fact, if you let most uppers bounce around in a bag long enough, the BCG is coming out.


Like all RCS products, the TopStop is 100% U.S.-made, and is covered by their unconditional lifetime guarantee.


The TopStop costs $9.99. It is in stock and shipping now, and can be ordered from RCS.
