RE Factor Tactical Grenade Dog Toy

In most contexts, a dog running toward you with a grenade in it’s mouth isn’t a good thing. That is unless that grenade happens to be the upcoming Grenade Dog Toy from RE Factor Tactical in which case you are probably having a great time with your best buddy. The new toy will be built from durable materials (1000D nylon, webbing) so that it lasts more than a hour or two like most store bought toys.

I wouldn’t limit this to just a dog toy. It isn’t hard to imagine my elementary age self throwing these bad boys at anything and everything. I guess it isn’t all that hard to imagine my 30 something self doing the same.

The RE Factor Tactical Grenade Dog Toy will be available soon.


Battle Arms Development Lightweight AR-15

Your lightweight AR-15 build is now too heavy. Battle Arms Development and Brentwood Gunsmithing are showing off their new, super secret, custom, lightweight AR-15 that weighs LESS than 4 pounds. Let that wash over you for a minute.

BAD Lightweight Build

Not only does it weigh less than 4 pounds, but it manages to do so with forged upper and lower receivers (with some obvious modifications). It includes several custom made parts including Battle Arms Development’s new Grade 5 Titanium Enhanced Pivot & Takedown Pins. Battle Arms Development assures us that we will see several new items that come from this R&D project.

It is great to see a company involved in this sort of project even if the carbine shown never makes it to market as a complete project. This kind of research and development works in auto racing and it looks like it could work in firearms too.

Dead Coyote Tactical Nylon PenCott BadLands PC

Hyde Definition’s PenCott patterns have developed a healthy user base and the patterns are generally available across a wide variety of gear but there are still relatively few options for plate and armor carriers. Thankfully, the industry is blessed with custom makers who can make whatever you need.

Dead Coyote Tactical Nylon works in the PenCott patterns extensively. They recently showed off a slick plate carrier design in PenCott BadLands.

The ability of smaller gear makers to fill in market gaps is just one of the reasons you should support mom and pop operations when possible.

New Crimson Trace LG-637 and LG-639 Glock LaserGrips

I own 2 different models of Crimson Trace LaserGrips for my Glocks. Those include the wrap around style LG-400 series and the earlier backstrap style LG-600 series. The LG-400 series has a lower-profile diode module that interferes with slide operation less but I prefer how the LG-6XX series makes the Glock’s grip feel (they straighten the backstrap a bit, reducing the grip angle). I have often wished that I could combine the best of both styles and it appears that Crimson Trace has done exactly that with the introduction of the LG-637 and LG-639 with both red and green lasers.

Crimson Trace Glock

The LG-637 and LG-639 fit the Gen3 Glock 17 (and similar) and Gen3 Glock 19 (and similar) respectively. They attach to your Glock’s backstrap via a provided, extra long locking block pin. The laser module appears to be smaller than that of the original LG-600 series LaserGrips and it is available with either a red or more daylight visible green laser. Additionally, the LG-637 and LG-639 feature a push-button master on/off switch like the LG-400 series LaserGrips.

These look like the best Glock LaserGrips yet! Check them out at Crimson Trace.
