Have you ever lost your Aimpoint Micro mounting screws? I have which is why I was glad to see that Brownells is now carrying a large selection of Aimpoint replacement parts. Keep that filed away for the next time you come back from the range without a turret cover!
Combative Edge has introduced a new karambit style knife called the Dragon’s Tail. It’s thin, skeletonized design should make it very concealable and it’s leaf shaped blade will be easier to maintain than a more traditional hook shaped karambit blade.
This knife is ground from .175″ thick D2 tool steel. It is 6.75″ in overall length with a compact 2.3″ blade that should keep it legal in just about any jurisdiction that allows fixed blade carry. The Dragon’s Tail comes with a kydex belt sheath.
VG6 Precision has managed to develop a very impressive lineup of muzzle devices in a relatively short time and apparently that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Aero Precision. It was officially announced today that Aero Precision has acquired VG6 Precision, adding another company to an already impressive stable that already includes Aero Precision and Ballistic Advantage.
Aero Precision’s manufacturing expertise and receivers plus Ballistic Advantage’s barrels and VG6 Precision’s muzzle devices should spell good things for shooters.
You’ve dropped big bucks on a killer tripod set up for your precision rifle and now you are ready to head into the field except you have to figure out how to carry the darn thing. You could lash it to your pack but it wouldn’t be very accessible. You could carry it in your hands but you already have enough gear to carry. Maybe its time to look at the Tripod Sling from Armageddon Gear.
Armageddon Gear’s Tripod Sling is pretty darn slick. It may look like it has a lot of straps but it is very simple to install and use. It consists of a bungee shoulder sling, 3 fixed straps and 2 adjustable straps with side release buckles. The sling lets you comfortably carry the tripod in the field. The fixed straps attach to one of your tripod legs and the adjustable straps wrap around all three of your tripod legs when they are folded. This strap set up ensures that the tripod stays folded when you are mobile, allows you to quickly deploy the tripod by release the two buckles, and keeps the sling attached to the tripod at all times so packing it back up again is just as easy as deploying it.

Magpul released two interesting news items today. The first is that the long awaited M-LOK Rail Covers, Type 1 are now shipping. These lightweight covers fit extremely close to the rail and offer grip thanks to their flexible material. Think of them as M-LOK’s answer to picatinny rail ladder covers.
The second news item is the release of Magpul’s new Enhanced AR Magazine Release. This two piece magazine release button is extended and has increased surface area over the standard release. Both parts are made from hard anodized aluminum and all hardware is included.
Impact Weapons Components makes a ton of handy widgets and the QD Micro Flush Sling Mount is likely their handiest. I have sung their praises on these pages before.
They are great solution for adding a sling mount to Magpul’s MOE Hand Guards and they are very easy to install. However, I realize that some of you don’t have the time, tools, or inclination to do it yourself and it is for guys like you that IWC offers MOE Hand Guards with the QD Micro Flush Sling Mounts professionally installed.
Previously, these were only available on the original MOE Hand Guards. Now IWC has expanded the service to include all in-stock MOE Hand Guards including the new MOE SL and M-LOK compatible versions. Check out all the options at IWC and don’t forget to use code “triggerjerk” at checkout to save 5%.
You’re patch collection is missing one! The new Built Like a Tank Patch is now available from Zulu Nylon Gear.
I own several items from Zulu Nylon Gear and I have to agree. Their gear is built like a tank.
Saurez International now offers an RMR Sight package for Advantage Arms 22LR Glock Conversions. These conversion slides have always a good solution for Glock shooters looking to practice sight alignment and trigger control at the reduced cost of 22LR but until now there hasn’t been an RMR mounting solution that approximates a carry gun.
The basic package includes the necessary machining, installation of taller co-witness sights, and the adapter plate for $125. If you need an RMR or installation of an RMR that you already own, the price is adjusted accordingly.
This package makes the AA conversion a viable training option for those of you who carry an RDS equipped Glock on a regular basis. That is all well and good but we all know that this also has the potential to be the world’s raddest squirrel hunting rig.

The Penguin Modular Organizer Pouches from Sneaky Bags are the type of pouches that you will never run out of ideas for how to use them. They are a great organizer option for your Sneaky Bag or any loop Velcro lined bag. They work as a typical admin organizer, a grab-and-go type E&E/survival kit, or even a tear-off medical kit.
The Penguin Modular Organizer Pouches (PMOP) are compact pouches that can be mounted on you belt or fixed to loop Velcro. The back of each pouch features a covered strip of hook Velcro (just peel off the loop cover to use it) and a strip of webbing that is sewn so that it can be used as both a grab handle and belt loops. The back panel is stiffened with an insert so that the PMOP always keeps its shape.
The interior of the pouches feature 4 mesh slip pockets that are bellowed to provide some internal space. These pockets, coupled with the internal space of the pouch, provide a lot of organization potential and the ability to see through the mesh to see the contents. The pouches have a full clamshell opening (like a book) to allow you to view and access the contents.
The front of the pouch has a adjustable shock cord (bungee) weave (2 in the case of the double version) that can be used to affix items like a tourniquet.
The pouches are constructed from nylon and have at least 2 layers of material throughout. The seams are all bound and stress points are reinforced. The overbuilt quality is typical of Sneaky Bags.
I have one of each size in hand and they are pretty slick. Check out the new Penguin Modular Organizer Pouches at Sneaky Bags.
