The XLR Industries Tactical AR Butt Stock is now available from Tactical Works. This is an AR-15/AR308 specific version the XLR Industries Tactical Butt Stock line. It shares many of the same features as other stocks in the line like adjustable comb height, adjustable LOP, adjustable butt pad height and cant, monopod compatibility, and more. The major difference between this stock and others in the Tactical Butt Stock line is that the cheek piece has been shortened to prevent interference with the charging handle.

SMOS Arms continues to grow their line of rails for the AR-15. Their latest, the SMR Quad Rail, is the first quad rail to join their offerings.
The SMR Quad Rail is available in 3 lengths: 9.1″, 12″, and 13.6″. It is machined from 6061 aluminum and features a forward and rear QD sling swivel cup on both sides of the rail. SMOS Arms has aggressively machined away any and all unnecessary material, even from the 1913 rail surface. The result is a rail that looks good and weighs less.
SMOS Arms is running an introductory special on these rails from now through Sunday (10/2). Enter the promo code GFYNATION to save $75 on an SMR Quad Rail.
The image above may not look like much at first glance but it is actually pretty darn cool. You are looking at the very first AK that was built in America, by Americans, with a front trunnion, bolt, and bolt carrier that were all hammer forged here in the states. That is a whole lot of American and a whole lot of hammer forged goodness.
Kudos to DDI for pushing the boundaries of American made AKs.

“Some members of our law enforcement and military communities require the strongest level IV plate in the world while others need the world’s lightest level IV plate, which gives them better mobility while still providing the highest level of protection. Now, you can get both from RMA. Our plates provide peace of mind to the officer or operator allowing them to do their job effectively and stay protected during any type of mission.”

Armageddon Gear just rolled out their latest shooting bag – the Chinese Cheater Bag. This barricade bag measures 8.5″ x 6.5″ x 4″ and has a number of straps. The perimeter webbing straps are used to adjust the firmness of the bag to suit the shooter’s preference. The elastic straps on top can be used to attach the bag to your rifle (or yourself).
I have found that barricade bags have application outside of precision shooting competition. A bag like the Chinese Cheater Bag can be attached to hunting rifle (so you don’t have to carry it separately) and goes a long way toward locking you into the rest on your tree stand or blind.
Check out the Chinese Cheater Bag at Armageddon Gear.
Before there was KeyMod, M-LOK, and Picatinny rail, there were improvised ways of mounting flashlights on rifles like duct tape, hose clamps, and ranger bands. Abner Miranda recently released a video that shows how effective, and even advantageous, ranger bands (bicycle inner tube sections) can be as a light a mount.
