Blue Force Gear – Limited Edition Vickers AK Sling V2

Monday, December 1st, 2014


Due to an overwhelming demand, Blue Force Gear is offering a second version of the Vickers AK Sling. Functionally similar to the Version 1 sling, the Vickers AK Sling V2 features a brand new front connection piece in the Universal Wire Loop – Push Button, which uses a high heat resistant, non-marring, nylon coated stainless steel cable.


Like the AK Sling V1, the V2 features custom “plum” polymer hardware, leather pull tab pieces, and ink stamping complete with inspector’s proof stamp.


The Vickers AK Sling V2 will only be available in a limited quantity, so if how quickly the last batch sold out is any indication, you’ll want to get your order in ASAP.


Available in Coyote Brown and OD Green.


Daniel Defense A1.5 Rear Sight

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Daniel Defense set out to design a simple and reliable Back Up Iron Sight and they have more than succeeded with the A1.5 BUIS. The BUIS integrates the M16A1-style windage and elevation adjustments with a same plane small and ghost ring aperture. Once you adjust them, they are staying put.

The BUIS is manufactured from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and mounts to a 1913 standard rail. It slides on and locks in place via a slotted fastener which is threaded into a self-locking steel thread insert. Once it’s on, it isn’t going anywhere. The BUIS is fixed so no need to worry about it popping up at the wrong time or thin parts breaking off. Additionally, the BUIS was designed to not interfere with the charging handle.

Larry Vickers summed it all up when he said this about the BUIS, “Finally a rear sight that has everything you need and nothing you don’t”.

Blue Force Gear Update

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Blue Force Gear has got a lot going on. Recently Stephen Hilliard came on board and brought with him his design expertise in nylon gear. Already available are two unique products; the Tourniquet NOW! Strap and the Ten-Speed Mag Pouch.

Blue Force Gear Tourniquet NOW! Strap
Designer Stephen Hilliard designed the Tourniquet NOW! Strap in order to replace the expedient rubber band system used to attach tourniquets to load carrying equipment. The strap is simple and folds the tourniquet at the ready. The Tourniquet NOW! Strap is available in Coyote Brown, Foliage Green, and Camo Green.

Blue Force Gear Ten-Speed Mag Pouch
BFG developed the Ten-Speed Mag Pouch after owner Ashley Burnsed saw a bicyclist with his water bottle in an elastic carrier. Weighing in at three ounces, and most of that is BFG’s new PALS-compatible attachment system, the pouch’s open topped body is manufactured from elastic and designed to provide positive retention of magazines or other items such as flash bangs. It is truly a specialist item that closes flat when not in use. Current variants are available with a dark olive green body edged in Multicam.

In addition to those tactical nylon accessories, the gang at Blue Force Gear has several other products lined up for release over the next couple of months.

Finally, Blue Force Gear is expanding their relationship with Larry Vickers beyond just slings and introducing a line of 1911 parts called Vickers 1911 gear. Although not yet available for sale on the site, a Hammer, Sear, and Disconnector kit should be up by the end of the week in both standard and slotted styles.

Blue Force Gear, manufacturer of the popular Vickers series of slings has recently released a new product. Machined from a 6061 aluminum billet, the sling loop is bead blasted and arrives with a non-reflective black finish.
