I don’t clean my firearms a lot but I always take some simple cleaning supplies with me when I go to the range – especially for paid training where down time equals lost time, money, and skill. If you need a compact field cleaning kit, Gunmag Warehouse has a ridiculous deal. They are selling Remington Squeeg-E Operator Field Cleaning Systems for $13.99 and their shipping is always very reasonable.
These kits come with everything you need to keep both handguns and rifles clean. All the components come packed in a case which keeps the whole kit compact and easy to transport.
Designed for the civilian shooter at a budget friendly price point, the 3X-C can be used in conjunction with all Aimpoint sights for long-range aiming or observation. Additionally, a variable (-2 to +2) dioptric setting allows this magnifier to be adapted to the individual shooter’s eye.
High Tower Armory’s upcoming High Point Bullpup Conversion has been generating a ton of interest both here on JTT and across the firearm community. We now have some new information to add.
High Tower Armory (HTA) released a new image of the design that shows how the knuckle guard is removable. The trigger guard remains intact but the knuckle guard that covers the rest of the grip may be removed by the end user.
HTA has also stated that they are trying to bring this to market for $200-300. The interest in this conversion has been intense when can help drive the price down.
The stock is initially slated to be released in Black, OD Green, and FDE. It will also be very lefty friendly with ambidextrous controls.
If you want to be sure to get your hands on one, you can join the mailing list at HighTowerArmory.com (lower left corner). HTA doesn’t take money on pre-orders but they will email those who have joined this list to ensure they get their hands on the stock when it becomes available.

Do you ever worry that vital skills, trades, and craftsmanship are dying with your generation? Well, you don’t have to worry about leather working. Mean Gene Leather has that covered.
Beez Combat Systems’ (BCS) new AK47 Chest Rig Split Front 4 Mag is now available. This low profile rig is designed to carry 4 AK-47 magazines as close to the wearer as possible while still keeping them very accessible with its open top (with bungee retainers) pouches.
The front of both sides of this split front rig are covered with 5 x 3 PALS webbing fields. Many of the rigs that BCS designs feature the same internal pouch design that gives large, uninterrupted PALS webbing fields across the front for the user to configure as necessary.
The split front is joined via two side release buckles which are easily repaired should you manage to break one. The design allows for easy donning and doffing along with increased air flow to the wearer.
The purchaser has several options at checkout when buying one of these rigs. Options include a fixed or adjustable split front. BCS always has a massive amount of color and camo pattern options on hand from which to choose. Finally, this rig is also available with a padded harness upgrade that makes it compatible with BCS hydration carriers. The padded harness upgrade offers a significant discount versus purchasing the padded harness separately.

Some people scoff at the idea of Magpul being in the apparel business. I happen to think they are killing it, especially when it comes to t-shirts!
The new SPQM or Senatus Populusque Magpulus t-shirt riffs on the Latin phrase “Senatus Populusque Romanus” meaning “The People of Rome”. So, if you consider yourself one of “The People of Magpul”, pick up this shirt at Magpul.com.
Ballistic Advantage just dropped a teaser image on their Facebook page (image below). It shows an AR-15 upper receiver with Ballistic Advantage branding and it includes a bolt carrier group and charging handle. Hopefully, this means they are getting back into the complete upper receive market… maybe even complete rifles.
Ballistic Advantage certainly has the production capability to offer complete uppers and firearms. In the not too distant past, they did offer complete uppers. I own two of them and they are excellent. Now, with the manufacturing backing of Aero Precision and their child brands like VG6 Precision behind them, they should be well positioned to get back into the market.
Generally, when Ballistic Advantage releases a teaser image, we don’t have to wait long before the pay off. Stay tuned.
Standard paracord based ranger beads (pace counters) aren’t exactly heavy, but… They are heavier than they need to be. A long time friend of mine and US Army veteran developed the Ultra Light Micro Ranger Beads that weigh in as just 2.27 grams compared to about 5 grams for a regular ranger beads.
These ranger beads makes use of smaller beads and lighter cord. They are small enough to make a difference but large enough to still be used with gloves. I have had two sets of these for almost 2 years. There have been zero issues with beads slipping or breaking. In fact, the beads grip this cord better than a lot of the full size ranger beads.
These are small and light but easy to use and durable. They are also made by a veteran right here in the USA and affordable at $5.35 shipped each. There are several bead and cordage options and there may be discounts for bulk orders. These are only sold on Ebay at the moment.
