Travis Haley of Haley Strategic Partners just posted a video that shows what is now being referred to as the D3CR Lite (more on this in a moment). The video outlines small changes made to the rig and all of the various expansion modules available for it. At the end there is a first look at an upcoming D3CR Heavy rig that will be dropping next week.
Echo Nine Three gets the gold start for the day because this is a pop culture reference that I can really get behind (get it?)!
The new Dunamis Gear website is now live. If you haven’t check out their line of quick attach/detach cargo pockets, now would be a great time to do so. I have a set of their Medium Top Zip Cargo Hangers and they are excellent. Their designs are simple and clever. Their attention to detail is great and these pouches are very easy to use. Stay tuned for a full review.
Elzetta thinks your time could be better spent doing something other than shopping during Thanksgiving. Maybe we should try being thankful for what we have.
Kudos to Elzetta for bucking the trend.
Bomber hats are pretty awesome all on their own but when you add a bit of AOR, Kryptek, or Multicam… well, that just takes it up a notch or three. That is exactly what Honor Point did with the Special Edition Bomber Hats. These hats are available in several different camo options and are fully lined with fleece. They are available in two sizes: Medium/Large and XL.
Check out the Special Edition Bomber Hats at Honor Point.

JTT readers knew about these sights first. Magpul is releasing new MBUS Pro Offset Sights and they are probably going to rock… hard.
By now you should know that the MBUS Pro Sights are really, really nice. They boast things like steel construction, Melonite finish, tool-less adjustment, solid detent lockup, and a very compact form factor. The good news is that the new MBUS Pro Offset Sights will have all the same features and they will deliver those features at the same price. That’s right. I said the new offset sights will cost the same as the original MBUS Pros which are pretty reasonably priced for what you get. It surprised me too.
I have been using offset sights for some time and they continue to grow on me. They tend to see wider acceptance on rifles with higher magnification optics where they serve as a not only a backup sighting system but a faster one for closer targets. However, I have also found them to be valuable with any optic, even red dot sights. I live in a place where it gets very cold. Moving between a heated home and the icy cold polar vortex parked over my house can fog even high quality optics. I have never had one of my Aimpoints become mechanically disabled but I have fogged them before. A fogged optic is easy to deal with if you have offset sights.
The new sights are available to order right now and they will being shipping immediately. Check out the new MBUS Pro Offset Sights at Magpul.
The Scalarworks BOR/RMR is a new, lightweight, low-profile optic rail for the Benelli M4 that also boasts an integrated mount for the Trijicon RMR. The integrated RMR mount allows the optic to be mounted far lower and more securely than would be possible by mounting to a rail. The BOR/RMR is so lightweight (1.15 oz) that it actually weighs less than the original rail that comes with the shotgun even though it offers additional functionality.
Check out the BOR/RMR at Scalarworks.
