Streamlight Introduces New Models of TL-Racker Shotgun Forend Lights

Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting devices, has increased the lumen output of its TL-Racker®, an all-in-one shotgun forend light designed to fit on Mossberg 500®/590® and Remington® Model 870™ pump-action shotguns, to 1,000 lumens. The company also introduces two additional models of the light, including one for the Mossberg 590® Shockwave and a Less Lethal Orange model for Remington® Model 870™ and 870 TAC-14 pump-action shotguns.  All four models now deliver 1,000 lumens.

With its increased brightness and sleek design, the TL-Racker® is ideal for door breaching, close quarter maneuvers and other tactical operations. Featuring a large, ambidextrous switch pad it provides easy access for both momentary and constant on functions, and accommodates virtually any hand size.  The elongated switch pad allows for thumb or finger activation with no changes in grip; both left- and right-handed shooters can use it without having to make modifications to the light or gun.

“We’ve increased the brightness, reach, and run time of this lightweight, integrated shotgun forend light, while also offering a new model to fit popular Shockwave shotguns, as well as a Less Lethal Orange model for easy identification,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah.  “Each features our innovative, ergonomic design that maximises grip and switch access, while providing extremely bright 1,000 lumen light, all at an affordable price point.  It’s the ideal choice for use with Mossberg and Remington shotguns.”  

Powered by two included CR123A lithium batteries, the TL-Racker® features a customised optic that produces a concentrated beam with optimum peripheral illumination.  Offering a high setting only, the TL-Racker® delivers 1,000 lumens and 20,000 candela over a 283-metre beam distance, with a 1.5 hour run time.  It is available in several models, designed to work with either Mossberg 500®/590® with either a 6 ¾ or 7 ¾ action slide, or the Remington® Model 870™ and 870 TAC-14 pump-action shotguns. With a body constructed from super tough, impact-resistant engineered polymer that is virtually indestructible, the new model also now features an IPX7-rated design for waterproof operation.

Full Disclosure – Ep 1 Pt 2

Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

Full Disclosure is a behind the scenes look at how and why we design products at TYR.  Each episode is broken up into two parts.


Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

May 2020 – San Antonio, Texas – Sons of Liberty Gun Works (SOLGW) in collaboration with Forward Controls Design (FCD) set out to create a safety that’s an embodiment of our considerable experience in AR15/M16 selector design and knowledge over the years. This collaboration resulted in the “Quick”.

The Quick was designed from the ground up to be a defense/duty/combat safety selector. Its’ mission is quite aptly reflected by the way its’ levers are attached the center, via a stainless-steel roll pin. The lever to center interface is incredibly strong, the high shear strength (800 lbs) 420 stainless steel spring steel roll pin simply holds the two in place and doesn’t handle any load. One of the design goals dictates there be no wobble between the lever and center, we’ve called for very tight tolerances (+0.001/-0.00) on the Quick’s lever and center interface to achieve that.

The Quick is shipped with a selector spring, a nitrided selector detent, two levers, 4 roll pins (two are needed for installation, with 2 spares).

We do not ship the Quick with one lever installed as we recommend installing the center (dimple forward) and installing the grip, allowing the detent to hold the center in place. Using a vice block to then hold the lower receiver as both levers are installed.

Quick centers are billet machined in 4140, heat treated and black nitrided. Levers are billet machined in 4140 and black nitrided.

Manufactured 100% in the USA.

MATBOCK Monday Scepter Jump Assault Pack

Monday, May 18th, 2020


Good morning and Happy MATBOCK Monday,

The Scepter Jump Assault Pack is specifically reinforced and designed for jump operations. All strapping is either continuous or connected in the backing of the pack to include the two connection loops meant for attachment to the parachute itself via release lines. Additionally, the system has a 1 pull release system for a primary weapon system. The weapon is mounted and jumped in the horizontal position and then can be released with one pull to give the jumper instant access to the primary weapon if necessary. The belly band of the parachute mounts across the top third of the pack, just above the primary weapon to keep it secure during the jump. The entire front flap of the containment system is released by this mechanism. For easy stowage, the flap can be snapped back into place instead of reweaving the pull handle. The pack also allows integration with the SS precision jump board across the back via webbing and Velcro.

Don’t forget to join Jim and Casey on Monday at 4:30 PM EST as they go live Instagram to demo the pack and answer all of your questions!
