Weapon Outfitters Has KAC T1 and H1 Aimpoint Battery Caps In Stock

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Weapon Outfitters was recently heavily restocked with KAC T1 and H1 Aimpoint battery caps. The T1/H1 Aimpoint sights are awesome and the Knight’s battery cap upgrade is excellent.

Weapon Outfitters did a great job of detailing its advantages:

1. They allow you to store an onboard spare battery for the already impressive Aimpoint Micro
2. They are a lot stronger than the standard battery cap: an actual consideration for hard use rifles. I busted up my stock cap real good and it had to be removed by the gunsmith… the KAC unit is a lot less vulnerable to blunt forces and deformation.
3. The machined features make adjusting brightness a lot easier, especially with gloves and sweaty hands!
4. Lastly, the cost is fair for an intricately machined part and useful upgrade!

KAC-TV Presents – SCAR Submissions

Monday, March 31st, 2014

In this latest episode of KAC-TV, they cover the SOF Combat Assault Rifle as well as KAC’s two submissions for that program. The first, the SCAR SLICK or SOF Lightweight Individual Carbine Kalashnikov is not well known and integrated several interesting features including a monolithic upper receiver, modular lower receiver and a Kalashnikov-style bolt.

KAC SOF SLICK

In the video, Trey Knight also takes us through their more conventional submission that more closely resembles a Stoner AR-style weapon. They did this in order to capitalize on the muscle memory SOF personnel have with the ergonomics of the AR. Interestingly, both weapons offered the option of using the Stoner 63 magazine which presents a more pronounced curve that the standard AR magazine.

KAC Stoner 63 Mag

The video is definitely worth a look.

This episode also has the distinction of introducing Jack Leuba as he joins KAC TV as the primary host, replacing Trey Knight.

Jack Leuba joined the United States Marine Corps in 1997 as a Rifleman, beginning his secondary military occupational specialty of Marksmanship Coach in 1999, and Combat Marksmanship Instructor in 2002. In 2005, following two combat deployments to Iraq he was assigned to Weapons Training Battalion Quantico with the task of assisting in the creation and implementation of the USMC Combat Marksmanship Program, as well as the Foreign Weapons Instructor and Trainer Courses. During his time in Quantico he became involved in competitive practical shooting to bolster and validate the concepts and techniques taught in the programs and classes under his charge. His experience and knowledge of small arms were frequently referred to by internal and external agencies for weapons testing, product development, acquisitions, training, and training curriculum development. In 2007, Jack was selected to be the USMC’s Marksmanship Liaison to the British Royal Marines. While working for the MoD, he assisted in the creation and implementation of three separate official programs of instruction, and provided individual instruction and training to numerous MoD units and agencies. Upon return from the UK he was again deployed for combat operations in Afghanistan with the USMC.

Jack has successfully completed numerous courses and military occupational specialty schools, to include: Marksmanship Coaches Course, Combat Marksmanship Instructor Course, Small Arms Weapons Instructor Course, Formal School Instructor Course, Close Quarters Battle School, Foreign Weapon Instructor Trainer Course, and the USMC High Risk Personnel Course. Personal awards include the Bronze Star with Combat “V” and the Meritorious Service Medal.

Following his departure from the DoD, Jack formed a tactics and firearms training and consulting company with another Marine Corps veteran. Jack brings his enthusiasm for imparting knowledge, technical skill, experience in the military and civilian firearms training, and expertise in the contemporary employment of small arms in a military context to KAC.
