Sneak Peek: Holosun to Offer Dot Sights with Green Reticles and 10 Year Runtime

As someone with color blindness (red deficient), I can get by with a typical red dot sight by turning up the brightness but I see other colors much better than red. I tend to see green very well as do most people since it is in the middle of the visible light spectrum. This is why the latest developments out of Holosun are extremely interesting to me.

Holosun has apparently devised a way to create dot sights with green reticles. If that isn’t interesting enough, the runtime should impress anyone. According to Holosun, the new sights don’t just have runtimes similar to current red dot sights, they boast 10 year runtime. That is twice the runtime found on current dot sights. That runtime, if accurate, is going to start approaching the self-discharge rate of some batteries!

Keep an eye on Holosun.com for new details.

D-Rmor Gear EDK-1A

D-Rmor Gear just launched their first knife – the EDK-1A.

from D-Rmor Gear:

After nearly 6 years of development, the first D-Rmor Gear blade is here.

Embodying all the best features of an everyday carry blade, the EKD-1A was designed from the ground up to be a perfect compliment to a concealed firearm, or as a standalone personal defense tool in non-permissive environments.

At just under 7.25″ in overall length, and a blade length of 2.95″, the EDK-1A is legal in most jurisdictions (please check your own local laws before carrying). With a blade geometry optimized for both the cut and the thrust, it is well-suited to any defensive style. To enhance its utility as a defensive carry tool, it incorporates a Karambit-style finger ring, to speed deployment using gross motor skill.

Precisely CNC machined and available in either D2 or CPM-3V steels (both hardened to approximately 59-60 Rockwell-C and cryogenically tempered), these knives will stand up to extreme use. Handles are secured using stainless chain ring bolts, and are offered with multiple colorways of hand-contoured G10 and Canvas Micarta for a dependable, secure grip in all conditions.

Finally, the blades are laser engraved with the D-Rmor Gear touchmark, and individually serial numbered, then coated with black PVD, Nickel Boron, Titanium Nitride, or Melonite for several lifetimes worth of extreme use.

An optional Kydex retention sheath is available in either black or FDE.

Depending on options, the D-Rmor Gear EDK-1A will be offered for between $369-$399 but the first ten knives will be available at a special price. Please contact D-Rmor Gear today to reserve your blade, limit of one per household.

Unboxing: TacPack September 2017

The September 2017 TacPack has arrived at JTT HQ. I am pretty happy with this one in terms of value and usefulness. Let’s see what’s inside.

Hopefully you are familiar with the concept of TacPack by now. If not, you can read the reviews of the previous TacPacks for some background on this subscription box.

HopticUSA Picatinny Bubble Level and Scope Dope Sticker – This is the star of the show for me. I just took the time to mount an optic as level as I possibly could on an SPR-ish AR-15 and was all set to purchase a bubble level. Then TacPack smiled upon me with this one from HopticUSA. It seems nice. It’s compact, machined from aluminum, and even has various lightening cuts machined into it to reduce the weight to a minimum. The scope dope sticker is a handy addition too.

Tactical Oatmeal Pistol Mag Carrier – This kydex double stack handgun magazine carrier is solid. It won’t win any awards for fit and finish as the edges are basically just deburred but not really cleaned up beyond that. It uses a basic plastic belt clip which is a functional choice for something like this since it allows OWB or IWB carry. I don’t care for this type of clip on holsters but it works well on a mag carrier. This is a useful addition.

MGM Switch View Eagle Eye – I’ve tried a few universal “cat tails” before but this one is easily the most svelte. I’ll admit that I am a little dubious as to whether it will hold up but if it does, it will be a killer product. It should fit a wide variety of optics.

Eagle Grit Hand Cleaner – This stuff is actually pretty neat. It takes all kinds of stuff off your hands – gun oil, hydraulic oil, grease, and whatever else you weirdos manage to get into. It’s just a hand cleaner but it works and I can definitely put it to use around the JTT Compound.

If you want to try TacPack, you can check them out at TacPack.com. TacPack hints that the October box will contain something springy, something sticky, and something sharp.. So, maybe it’s some Halloween candy with razor blades hidden in it or something better.

Disclosure: I receive TacPacks, free of charge, for review.

AFLoader: Automated Pistol Magazine Loader

Have you ever watched a torture test video on YouTube where the person on camera keeps getting handed magazine after magazine by someone off camera. They get to shoot and have fun while the Magazine Fairy keeps loading and handing over fresh, topped off magazines. Well, that is kind of the idea behind AFLoader – you shoot, it loads… It’s like an automated Magazine Fairy.

Tacoma, WA: AFA LLC, a company specializing in advanced firearm accessories, has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for its automated magazine loader, AFLoader.

AFLoader is the first automated pistol “speed loader” and supports nearly all double stack, single stack, and extended type magazines in 9MM, .40 and .45 calibers. The loader features removable ammunition hoppers, available in various capacities with as little as 75 rounds for a to the largest consumer version at 1000 rounds.

This final version is small at only 8.5” tall and weighs only 6.5LBS unloaded. Zero adjustment needed. Insert a magazine, select how many rounds to load and hit RUN. The loader automatically detects magazine type and length.

The built in LCD gives a real-time display of rounds remaining in the current hopper and rounds being loaded into the current magazine. The four front buttons allow the user to select how many rounds to load and saves magazines to memory for quick recall.

AFLoader will operate on both 120v/240v wall power or 12V lithium battery packs, which are user replaceable. At 1.7 rounds per second, AFLoader is faster than any handheld speed loader. The hands-free nature of the machine allows the shooter to continue training while another magazine is loading, allowing for zero down time with only two magazines.

The base model is priced at $189 with 3 user selected hopper capacities/calibers, one battery pack and charger. It carries a 3 year limited warranty covering all defects or malfunctions.
