Kineti-Tech SB15 Receiver Extension

Kineti-Tech has an interesting take on the now very popular AR pistol receiver extension (buffer tube). Like many others coming onto the market now, theirs features a shoulder for adding length of the pull for the SB15 Stabilizer Brace. Unlike any other receiver extension, theirs offers custom machined spacers so you can chance the look of your receiver extension.

Kalash Life Patch from Snake Hound Machine

Make some room on your patch mat AK shooters! You are going to want this one.

Snake Hound Machine has just released their Kalash Life patches. The patch resembles an AK magazine with “Kalash Life” emblazoned across its side. There is a steel AK magazine version and a version that resembles a US Palm AK30 in 3 different colors (Black, Bakelite, and Multicam). You can purchase them individually, as a set of the US Palm versions, or as an entire set of 4 patches.

V7 Weapon Systems Titanium KMR Barrel Nut

V7 Weapon Systems is just showing off. They have made several lightweight AR-15 parts but those were lighter versions of standard parts. Their latest is a lighter barrel nut for a well known free-float rail with the main selling point of already being the lightest on the market!

IMG_0750_1024x1024

Their new Titanium KMR Barrel Nut is a drop-in replacement for the BCM KMR rail and weighs just 26 grams (a roughly 19 gram savings over the standard KMR nut). It is made from grade 5 titanium with a raw or an ion bond black finish.

For your convenience, I will go ahead and get the crotchety comments out of the way. Men used to be men… jabber, jabber, jabber… it’s only a few grams lighter… jabber, jabber… this lightweight stuff has gotten out of control… jabber, jabber, jabber… too expensive… jabber, jabber.

I suspect they wouldn’t even care if they didn’t sell a single one of these (I doubt that will be the case) because, like I said, this is just showing off.

GEARWARD Ranger Bands

I usually just cut bicycle inner tubes into whatever size “ranger band” I need but they can get brittle and tear in a relatively short amount of time. GEARWARD is now offering a more substantial Ranger Band. Theirs are made from thick EPDM rubber which, according to GEARWARD, resists heat, UV, and saltwater. Like most rubber bands, these can be burned as an emergency fire starter but thanks to their thick construction, they burn for 3 minutes.

The bands are 2″ long, 1/2″ wide, and come in packs of 20. Check out GEARWARD Ranger Bands.

BattleComp 51.0

The BattleComp 51.0 has landed. If you can’t tell by the name, this BattleComp is intended to be used as a mount for AAC suppressors with the 51 tooth interface.

BattleComp used to offer custom versions of this device but it was never a readily available production item until now. Unlike previous custom versions, the 51.0 features one piece construction (custom versions were welded). It is machined from 17-4PH stainless steel with a black oxide finish.

Dunamis Gear

I have always appreciated backpacks that have a means for quickly adding additional capacity. I am not talking about adding MOLLE pouches which are often too small to make much of a difference on a pack and take a while to thread on and off. The Eagle Industries AIII had side pouches that attached easily via two buckles on the compression straps. Kifaru uses their Dock and Lock pouches to great effect and most of them require just 4 buckles which makes them easy to attach. I have always wondered why similar types of pouches aren’t more common which is why my interest was piqued when a friend told me about Dunamis Gear.

Dunamis Gear has an entire line of pouches like the ones I describe above. Their pouches attach via G-clips to MOLLE compatible bags so they are easy-on and easy-off. They come in a variety of sizes, opening configurations (side zip, top zip, etc.), and other custom options are available.

They can even be useful as standalone bags when you add optional features like handles and shoulder straps. This can be handy for those need to hike in with a large bag but then like to drop their pack at camp while they explore/hunt.

Dunamis Gear’s website will be live soon. In the mean time, you can visit their Facebook page to find out more about their offerings.

BFG Limited Edition AK Sling

If Larry Vickers was a 1940s Soviet sling manufacturer, this is what would happen…

AK Sling 2-600x400

Blue Force Gear has just released just only 500 of these absolutely gorgeous Limited Edition AK Slings. If Banana Republic sold AK slings, this is what they would look like.

It certainly looks good but isn’t just a pretty face. It performs well too. This is a Vickers Combat Applications Sling (VCAS) through and through. It still features the bomb-proof hardware and comfortable webbing that Blue Force Gear is known for along with the quick-adjustment you have come to expect from the VCAS. It has just been dressed up to look more at home on an AK.

The front attachment point is a standard AK snap hook to work with the sling loop on many AK handguard retainer caps. The rear is a simple webbing attachment point to work with the wire loop found on many AK stocks. The plastic tril-glides are molded with “plum” colored polymer and the pull tab is made from leather! They even ink stamp the label to complete the look. This sling is loaded with attention to detail.

There are only 500 of these so act fast. They won’t last long. Check out the Limited Edition AK Sling at Blue Force Gear.

TangoDown KeyMod Vertical Grip

TangoDown is bringing their popular vertical grip to a KeyMod compatible rail near you. The images here show a very early prototype but it is still worth getting excited about. This prototype appears to be similar in length and shape to their rail mounted Stubby Vertical Fore Grip. That is a good thing because I have used a lot of vertical grips and the TangoDown short grips fit my hand like they were made for me.
