Maker Monday – WeaponLink from S&S Precision

So far in this series we’ve seen several new items from S&S Precision. They’ve also updated exiting products but the one that has received the biggest makeover is the WeaponLink. The application remains the same. It’s optimized for keeping your weapon out of the way for hands free work such as climbing, swimming or detaining personnel.

Interestingly enough, this is a bit of a “back to the future” moment as early iterations of the WeaponLink were closer to this style. It still consists of two components but the new version of the WeaponLink has been consolidated into a modular design eliminating the old, type-specific variations (MOLLE or Belt) utilizing third-party components and now attaches utilizing the SSP Gear Retention Track (GRT).

·Lower Profile Picatinny Rail Grabber with single bolt clamping

    I like it better than the old design on Blackhawk belt loops, but $125 seems steep. I don’t see machining any more complicated than something like a flashlight mount and than an injection-molded plastic piece. I’d happily pay $50-75.

      A Safariland UBL with a QLS plate runs about $30. Works great for a pistol holster but not viable for anything else.

      S&S GRT Belt or PALS Plate is $13-$15, low profile and will let you mount an pistol holster via height-adjustable platform, WeaponLink or even an M4 Mag via SMR. At the rate S&S is introducing kit, pretty sure they’ll have more GRT stuff by SHOT. Would be nice to see a pistol mag/SF light fixture ;).

      In a cost vs. value proposition, might hurt a little LESS…

    Smart! I’m liking this stuff more and more. Any thoughts from someone who has put it to work?

    I have used the older ones when I was deployed. But The only reason was so I could clip my m4 outta the way and use hunks and a radio. Hence the “handle”

    These guys seem to be putting together a pretty well laid out, integrated and modular system of gear.

    any one know the pouch used in the photo on SSD’s home page.
    it looks like a billow triple mag pouch on a S&S plate frame?
