Specter Gear Spartan Series

Specter Gear’s new Spartan Series of tactical gear is made from same materials (double layered 1000D Cordura), in the same place (USA), and has similar designs to their regular gear. However, by removing a bell here and a whistle there, they are able to make these new pouches more affordable. The Spartan Series consists of several drop holsters and several MOLLE compatible rifle magazine pouches including single and double flap covered M4 mag pouches, single shingle style M4 mag pouches, and a single shingle style AK-47 magazine pouch.

Multimode Discrete Carry IFAK from RE Factor Tactical

The Multimode Discrete Carry IFAK (MDC) from RE Factor Tactical is concealed first aid carrier that is designed to be used and carried in a number of different ways. It can be worn around your midsection like a belly band holster, around the ankle or arm, or rolled up and placed in a larger pouch to be used like a medical insert.


In addition to it’s ability to carry aid items, the DC itself can serve as one. Its elasticity and 12 different Velcro break positions allow it to achieve a high degree of compression so that it can actually be used as a compression bandage. The 8 integral pouches keep your first aid items organized while removable tabs keep them retained. The MDC also has a red pull tab to serve as a visual indicator of the medical supplies it carries and so that it can located when carried inside another pouch or bag.

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 change the look of your receiver extension.

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!


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.
