Big News from TSD

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

As Mini Red Dot sight equipped handguns (Glocks in particular) become more and more popular, one company stands out as having gotten onboard with the concept almost from the giddy-up and that is TSD Combat Systems. Initially they modified commercial slides but began to realize that this was too costly in time and money. So, they decided to develop their own slides. The TSD Combat Systems G-17 RMR Slide is made of 17-4 stainless steel, at a thorough hardness of RC 46. It is a “drop in” slide, with no gunsmithing required for fitting.

It integrates the excellent Trijicon RMR and is offered in OD or Black Cerakote. Notice the top of the RMR sight. Many Mini Red Dots feature a convex arc around the top of the sight. If you drop the weapon and it lands on the sight, all of the shock is transferred directly into the sight. With the Trijicon RMR, the concave top features two points which can help protect the sight if dropped by mitigating the shock. Another thing we really like about Trijicon is that you don’t have to worry about batteries dying on you.

It comes complete with a Trijicon RMR, and all internals, a TSD Combat Systems Match Barrel, assembled and finished by TSD’s Technicians. It is packaged in a TSD/Pelican Case.

Naturally, a pistol with a mounted optic on the slide won’t fit in a standard holster. TSD recently worked with Blade Tech to modify their popular WRS Tactical Holster to accept the RMR equipped Glock. Turns out, guys who are running mini red dots on their pistol also use weapon lights. Once again, TSD and Blade Tech teamed up to make the improvements. The resulting TSD – Blade-Tech WRS RMR Equipped/Surefire X300 Light Tactical Holster System is a very specific piece of kit for a very capable pistol.

The holster is also available through One Source Tactical.

The Jihad Interdiction Bag

Offered exclusively by One Source Tactical’s Technical Services Division, the Jihad Interdiction Bag is designed to discreetly store and carry up to two rifles (short barreled rifle, a bull pup rifle, or a folding stock rifle) as well as a chest rig and/or armor loaded with several magazines and other ancillary gear. The bag features three outer bellows pockets and is fully lined with a PALS field made of loop fabric. It can be carried in hand like a large brief case, or slung over the back with the stashed-away back pack straps. Available in Black or Tan, it is 29″L x 15″H x 10″D.


E&E Bags

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Call them what you will, E&E bags, bug out bags, or satchels, they are a long way from the salvaged Claymore bag you used back in the 80s. In fact, the modern E&E Bag was first developed for Diamondback Tactical by the founder of Mayflower Research & Consulting in 2003 based on his military experience. Over the past few years, the original design has been copied and modified by a slew of manufacturers, even morphing into the Courier Bag requirement for USSOCOM. The item is far from static and even Mayflower has improved on that first design.

The latest bag to hit the market is the Terrorist Interdiction Bag (TIB) from One Source Tactical’s Technical Services Division. It is the first bag of its kind designed to accommodate AK magazines. As you can see in the photo below, the retention tabs have been specially designed to secure the AK30 magazine from US PALM. Naturally, it will also carry other similar sized including M4 magazines.

Available in Black, Coyote, and MultiCam.
