VTAC MK-6 Ultra Light PES Sling

Monday, August 21st, 2017

Viking Tactics, Inc’s Kyle Lamb recently warned us of their newest lightweight sling coming to market soon.


VTAC has joined forces with Grey Ghost Gear to design this super light weight tactical sling. For many years the VTAC sling has been the gold standard for tactical users, from Rangers, SEALS, HRT, and Special Forces. This is the sling you see them using.

On Gun 2

Lamb says the sling has the same features as the rest of the VTAC slings with lighter weight and extremely durable materials. The shoulder strap is made from laser cut Hypalon, which material by itself is too sticky to slide across your shoulder, so the design team at Grey Ghost added Tweave Durastretch with a minimalist pad to make the sling comfortable and slick for easy transitions to your support side shoulder or when moving the carbine to your back for climbing or fast roping. Lamb stated that the sling will be a little more costly than their other slings adding, “but when you want light weight it is gonna cost a little bit more.”


They brought the entire team at Grey Ghost Gear to bear to get this project to become a reality. GW, Avery, Ryan, and Lindsey, and the the entire GGG team bringing years of gear design expertise to those on the front lines.

Made in the USA with Mil-Spec USA made materials.

RAND CLP and VTAC Announce Partnership

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

I just found out that Viking Tactics founder Kyle Lamb has endorsed RAND CLP. I’m told that he met them at SHOT Show 2013 and got a few bottles to try out. Turns out, he likes it. RAND told me that Kyle “liked the viscosity, the no smell aspect and the fact that the product cleaned so well and kept the firearm wet after thousands of rounds. Also, it’s manufactured in the US!”


Sergeant Major Kyle Lamb, retired US Army Special Operation soldier, and President of Viking Tactics/VTAC, has officially endorsed RAND CLPTM as the “most innovative and effective firearms CLP on the market.”

Sergeant Major Kyle E. Lamb (retired) spent 21 years in the United States Army, more than 15 of which were with a U.S. Army Special Mission Unit. He served in several combat theaters including Mogadishu, Somalia, Iraq and Bosnia. One of his last assignments before retiring was to torture test new equipment for the US Army Special Forces Operations, ensuring America’s best combat shooters had access to the most effective and innovative equipment.
RAND’s Vice President of Sales and Operations, Jon Miodonka, says “SGM Lamb is meticulous when looking for great products & technology and won’t associate his name with just anything.”

RAND CLPTM is manufactured and distributed by RAND Brands, a division of RAND Innovations, LLC of Westport, CT. Developed by Mark Simonetti, a former Army Ranger and police firearms instructor, and using Nanotechnology as its platform RAND Brands has brought science and functionality together to create the perfect combination of a cleaner, lubricant and protectant.


RAND CLPTM burst onto the scene in February 2013 after officially launching at the SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) in Las Vegas. After 6 years of research and development, RAND Brands unveiled RAND CLPTM as the best all-in-one solution for firearm maintenance and reliability.

Says SGM Lamb of RAND CLPTM, “As a Soldier and Firearms trainer, I constantly searched for a weapon CLP that was a step ahead, I never found it…that was until RAND CLPTM came along. RAND CLPTM is head and shoulders above any weapons CLP on the market. RAND CLPTM answers all of my gun care needs.” He continues to say “RAND CLPTM changes the way your slide and bolt feel. They will be smoother than you ever imagined.”

Miodonka: “Working with Kyle and VTAC over the last 6 months has been an honor. To have the Viking Tactics and VTAC logos on our bottle is a testament to the hard work and efforts that have gone into developing RAND CLPTM at RAND Brands over the last 6 years.”

Lamb: “There are hundreds of options when it comes to cleaning, lubing and protecting your weapon, but RAND CLPTM is the best option.”

VTAC Quick Detach Ultralight Vertical Grip

Monday, February 20th, 2012

There are two versions of the grip. One features horizontal cutouts on the grip and the other 45 deg cutouts (seen below) but both are 3.8 ounces despite being manufactured from Type II Anodized Machined 6061T Aircraft Aluminum. This is interesting because there are many who feel that you need the additional strength of metal to withstand the shock of barrel taps. The unique design relies on a simple O ring to retain 2ea AA or 2ea CR123 batteries. Additionally, it attaches to the rail via the patented DLOC system. If anything, you’ve gotta love the color name; Scorched Earth.

Yes, you can get the grip numerous places but we recommend

New Products from TYR Tactical

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

We just found out earlier today about a couple of new products from TYR Tactical. This photo shows both of them, being used in concert with one another.

The first item is the VTAC/ TYR Brokos Belt w/ T33 Soft Armor. Designed by VTAC it is natural progression of the padded Brokos Belt. TYR has replaced the padding with soft armor for those that need it. Contact TYR for exact ballistics data. It is designed to serve as an overbelt so you have to thread a gun belt through the pad. Here, TYR has paired it with a belt of their own design.

The PV Tactical Base Belt with Cobra Buckle is built using one continuous piece of PV folded three times. According to TYR Tactical, this gives it an estimated 1200 lbs of tensile strength per square inch along the belt’s surface. Additionally, it incorporates a soft loop for tie-ins. It is important for us to note that this belt has not received any life support certifications yet.

Both belts are sized so make sure you order the right size. Colors are subject to availability,
