Christensen Arms Unveils Brand New Flash Forged Technology

Monday, January 17th, 2022

Gunnison, Utah – (January 17, 2022) Over the past 25 years, Christensen Arms has consistently been at the forefront of firearm innovation and wildlife conservation efforts.  From the introduction of the carbon-fiber wrapped barrel to financial support of leading wildlife conservation groups, Christensen Arms is always finding new ways to improve the shooter’s experience while protecting our beloved hobbies and traditions.

“For 2022, the newest innovation from Christensen Arms is Flash Forged Technology (FFT) which represents the latest in carbon fiber structural manufacturing,” said Jason Christensen, CEO of Christensen Arms.  “Instead of maintaining the status quo of “overbuilding” a product to meet safety standards, Flash Forged Technology employs an engineering approach to achieve the lightest possible structure while exceeding crucial strength and safety margins.” 


Utilizing an aerospace monocoque shell, Flash Forged Technology eliminates unnecessary internal weight.  The result is a FFT designed stock that is up to a full pound lighter than traditionally manufactured carbon fiber composite rifle stocks – creating a more consistent shooting foundation while reducing user fatigue in the field.  Flash Forged Technology is available exclusively on select Christensen Arms firearms.


With conservation being at the forefront, Flash Forged Technology also results in greater environmental sustainability as it was created to save energy and eliminate waste. Utilizing automated processes and virgin recyclable materials, FFT is truly 100% zero-waste manufacturing.  Trimmed composites are repurposed into new carbon fiber parts without producing harmful toxins or emissions.  This new technology helps support Christensen Arms goal of wildlife conservation by reducing our environmental impact and protecting our lands and wildlife for the enjoyment of future generations – all while creating a superior product.

Flash Forged Technology is available exclusively on select Christensen Arms firearms for 2022: the Mesa FFT, Mesa FFT Titanium, Ridgeline FFT, Ridgeline FFT Titanium and Ridgeline FFT Scout.

Multitasker NANO2

Monday, January 17th, 2022

January 17, 2022 (Marietta, GA)

Multitasker®, specialty makers of weaponcentric multitools, is proud to announce the latest addition to our product line: the patent pending NANO2, a tiny 1-pc tool for pistol RDS adjustment.

Utilizing the same micro form factor as the original NANO, which is designed for carbine optics and aiming lasers, the new NANO2 features a narrow slotted screwdriver tip on one end and a T10 Torx on the other. Compatible with the Aimpoint ACRO P1/P2, all Holosun sights (including the new EPS), Leupold DeltaPoint Pro, Steiner MPS, Trijicon RMR/SRO. Also works with the NGAL as well as the new DUTY RDS from Aimpoint.

Made from 420 stainless steel with a tough Melonite finish, the NANO2 occupies the same exact footprint as the original NANO, and thus will be compatible with the patented SpaceFrame docking slot feature found on the upcoming Gen3 MagPod monopod baseplate for M3 PMAGs.

In addition to the built-in lanyard hole, the NANO2 includes a replacement baseplate for the factory Glock 17/19 magazine that features the same SpaceFrame docking system as the Gen3 MagPod, allowing you the option of securely carrying the tool onboard your duty pistol. With its contoured thumb disc, you can easily remove or dock the NANO2 to the magazine even while wearing gloves, with the SpaceFrame providing a positive “click” to indicate secure retention.

MSRP: $24.95, including 1 replacement baseplate.

Available April 2022 via select Multitasker dealers. For more information please visit:

The New HOGleash from Ridgeline

Friday, January 14th, 2022

Ridgeline Defense just released its new HOGleash rifle sling. It’s a 2-point adaptive rifle sling with three key features designed for the needs of the precision rifleman.

The adaptable sling is a collaboration with Edger Sherman Designs and includes an integrated snap-shackle and a custom-made, carbon fiber inline rifle support.

“When I was going through the USMC SOTG Urban Sniper Course, we were using our old issued cuff slings for the M40s,” says Ridgeline Defense’s Alex Hartmann. “We would attach the cuff to our belt, but it wouldn’t adjust very well. So, one weekend, I worked with a rigger to modify an OG Viking tactics V-Tac sling to work better. When I went back to class the next week, I was performing better.”

Over time and deployments, Hartmann kept modifying that sling until it was what he wanted. Then, as lead instructor at Ridgeline Shooting, he wanted to make a finished, production version that the company could provide to students who ask what the training cadre uses and why they use it.

The snap shackle is used to apply tension to a supported rifle when attached to your beltline. With the rifle on a tripod or other support, and the sling attached to the front of the rifle, snap the shackle to any available loop on your beltline to apply tension and stabilize your shooting position. The snap shackle offers one-handed operation that’s faster and easier to use than a carabiner for quick set up and breakdown of bulit shooting positions. When not in use, the snap shackle is captured by an accessory loop, so it stays out of the way.

The inline rear support is made of a carbon fiber-composite material and displaces the weight and bulk of a rear bag, providing rifle stability that’s always with you. It’s also a great place to tape a DOPE card.

Once installed and adjusted properly, a gliding adjuster allows the sling to adapt to any shooting position and cinches down to secure the rifle to your body for fast-roping, climbing, rappelling, and dynamic movement.

The HOGleash has no free ends to trip you up, is made from 1-inch nylon webbing and features high-quality ITW Nexus findings and is compatible with any sling attachment hardware, including QD attachments, HK hooks, and sling loops.

The HOGleash is Berry Act compliant, available in black, green, tan, MultiCam, is proudly made in New Hampshire, costs $120, carries a lifetime warranty, and is available now from Ridgeline.

Magpul Enhanced Ejection Port Cover

Thursday, January 13th, 2022

There’s some cool new stuff this week, but this is one of my favorites. It’s a polymer Ejection Port Cover. I see people running around without Ejection Port Covers and I just don’t get it. It is one of the most important features on that rifle.

It might seem insignificant to many, but I am not a fan of the Mil Spec Ejection Port Cover. Apparently, neither is Magpul. They have greatly simplified the design and installation.

The Magpul Enhanced Ejection Port Cover is made from injection molded polymer and is much easier to install than the GI version.

Offered in Black, FDE and OD Green.

XS R3D Night Sights for CZ P-10 C Optics-Ready and Glock 43, 43x and 48 MOS Pistols

Wednesday, January 12th, 2022

Fort Worth, Texas (January 11, 2022) – XS® Sights is pleased to extend its R3D Night Sight offerings for CZ and Glock pistols with the addition of standard height R3D sights for the CZ P-10 C Optics-Ready pistol and suppressor height models for Glock 43, 43x, and 48 MOS pistols.

Available with a bright Orange or Green Glow Dot front sight, the XS R3D has a traditional 3-dot tritium, notch and post sight picture with a notch that is 15% wider than the front sight, allowing more visible light around the front sight. This space, combined with the XS Glow Dot technology, makes it easier to see the front sight in changing light conditions and when shooting on the move. It also aids in faster sight alignment and increased accuracy.

“The Glow Dot technology in our R3D front sight activates even before the tritium is visible, giving those who prefer a 3-dot notch and post sight picture a significant edge in high-stress situations,” said Addison Monroe, Marketing Manager for XS Sights. “The R3D front dot also glows brighter than the two-dot tritium rear which drives your focus downrange and prevents you from mistaking a rear dot for the front sight when your adrenaline is surging.”

Retail Price: $110 to $123

All XS Sights are backed by a 10-year, No Questions Asked Warranty and XS’s 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee.
