TOPS Knives Hammer Hawk

This is the new release a lot of TOPS Knives fans have been waiting for… The Hammer Hawk has arrived just in time for SHOT Show 2018. The Hammer Hawk was first shown at last year’s SHOT Show, now it is finally available.

From TOPS Knives:

Power and aesthetics combine to make an epic tomahawk. The Hammer Hawk is anything but a normal tomahawk. Each feature was carefully thought out. It’s a full-tang, 3/8” thick piece of 1075 with a sharp, 4.5 inch cutting edge and a hammer on the back. The handles go most of the way up the tang to provide for multiple grip options. The blade cover is separate from the belt frog so that it can be carried on the belt or in a pack. The frog also includes a pocket to fit the optional TOPS Backup knife or small skeletonized knife of your choice.

Pick up the Hammer Hawk from a TOPS authorized dealer or directly from TOPS at www.topsknives.com/hammer-hawk

Magpul Suppressor Cover – 5.5

The Magpul® Suppressor Cover – 5.5” is the first product of its kind able to stand up to the extreme temperatures caused by extended strings of semi-automatic and automatic fire and still protect the user against burns by keeping internal can temperatures at safe levels and cool-off times short. The Magpul® Suppressor Cover – 5.5” is made up of a heat-resistant polymer sleeve overlaid onto a raised stainless steel heat shield that mounts directly to the suppressor body with steel clamps. It minimizes heat transfer to keep external cover temperatures up to 1000 degrees F cooler than the surface of the suppressor by allowing high volumes of cooling airflow across the can, reducing retained heat and the damage it can cause. Our Suppressor Cover withstands USSOCOM suppressor abuse

requirements and numerous cycles of suppressor surface temperatures over 1300 degrees F with ease, all while allowing you to sling your rifle without burns or melted clothing. The Magpul Suppressor Cover is also an enhanced thermal insulator and signature reduction device, which significantly mitigates negative visible mirage effects to the shooter’s sight picture, reduces external suppressor body impact damage, and lessens the chance of accidental contact injury or other heat-related damage to personnel or equipment during weapon firing or cool down. Optimized for 1.5” outer diameter round suppressors with a body length of approximately 5.5” (not including attachment hardware/ interface) such as the Surefire SOCOM556-RC2.  Other lengths are in the works and are coming soon.

FEATURES

  • Extreme temperature protection that mitigates internal suppressor temperatures to safe levels
  • Minimizes retained heat, allowing faster cooling than any other suppressor cover technology
  • Reduces thermal signature of host firearm
  • Mitigates mirage effects in sight picture
  • Two stainless steel clamps provide a strong, rigid and reliable interface capable of sustained firing sessions and rough handling
  • High temp polymer sleeve withstands brutal suppressor temperatures during extended periods of firing without deterioration
  • High strength corrosion resistant stainless steel heat shield

FITMENT

Fitment for 1.5” outer diameter round suppressors with a body length of approximately 5.5” (not including attachment hardware/ interface) such as the Surefire® SOCOM556-RC2.

COLORS: Black or Medium Coyote Tan (MCT)

MSRP: $99.95

SLT-2 Sear Link Technology Trigger

KE Arms in conjunction with M&M Manufacturing is pleased to announce the release of the SLT-2 Sear Link Technology ARC Blade Trigger.

M&M Manufacturing designed the Sear Link Technology trigger to address the short comings common to most AR15 trigger designs.  Produced and distributed by KE Arms, the patent pending sear link system eliminates the traditional disconnector, resulting in a smoother and more durable trigger.  As the hammer is pushed out of the way by the bolt carrier group, it does not impact any other parts of the fire control group.  Without a disconnector for the hammer to drive through, longevity and durability of the trigger system are increased especially when used with higher speed BCGs found in pistol caliber carbine blowback systems.  The function of the sear link system also allows the firearm to be placed on safe with the hammer either cocked or forward, something unique to aftermarket trigger systems.  This simplifies the manual of arms and reducing the possibility of a negligent discharge when transitioning or clearing malfunctions.  Finally the moving parts of the SLT are isolated in the forward front section making them much less susceptible to debris and fouling than traditional designs.

Although the SLT-1 with curved trigger has been successful since its release in early 2017, there was still room to make it even better.  End user feedback and input from the KE Arms Shooting Team led to the development and release of the SLT-2, featuring the ARC Blade trigger.  The new trigger improves the tactile feel of the reset, making the shooter more aware of when the trigger has moved forward to the reset point.  The surface of the ARC Blade makes the pull feel consistent regardless of trigger finger placement.  The SLT-1 maintains the curved trigger, but now also features the improved tactile feel of the SLT-2.

Kicking off 2018 is the announcement of the Magpul Pro 700 Rifle Chassis.  At the very start of our bolt action program – and even from the earliest days of Magpul precision rifle training – we knew that the ultimate goal was to build the best possible “no limits” rifle chassis in the world.  After years of design, prototyping and testing, and guided by Magpul Core and other accomplished shooters from military, law enforcement, and competitive backgrounds, it’s time to show our hand.

The Magpul Pro 700 Rifle Chassis is an uncompromising, full featured precision rifle chassis for short action Remington 700 actions and other Rem 700 footprint actions.  The Pro 700 combines innovative engineering, precision machining, MILSPEC quality finishes, and an extensive list of purposeful design features with complete adjustability to provide demanding end users with the most comprehensive available precision rifle platform solution for true out of the box performance.

Based on a full billet aluminum skeleton and clad in Magpul polymer for environmental comfort, noise mitigation, and ergonomics, the Pro 700 is also fully ambidextrous.  Capable of fitting both right and left handed actions with the simple swap of a bot-cutout plate, and with a reversible cheek riser and reversible hinge on the folding version, “lefties” haven’t been left out.

Sneak Peek: Surefeed to Release E2 Magazine – Metal Mag with Grip Texture, Low Friction Feed Lips, and More

Surefeed Magazines (Okay Industries) is set to release a new aluminum AR-15 magazine with a host of unique and functional features.

From Surefeed:

New Britain, CT –Okay Industries, the world’s most experienced AR magazine manufacturer, has introduced the SureFeed E2 magazine. This evolution of the SureFeed 30 round product line is the result of over 45 years’ experience manufacturing M16/M4 magazines for the U.S. military. Patented feed lip design, textured side panels, a new anti-tilt follower, and caliber markings complete the evolution for Okay’s new SureFeed E2 magazine taking it to the next level for handling and performance.

SureFeed E2’s patented feed lips dramatically increase reliability by decreasing the force necessary to strip the cartridge from the magazine. This low friction feed lip design helps the rifle continue to function when dirty or fouled with carbon. An industry first for metal magazines, the textured side panels of the SureFeed E2 have been designed to improve handling even with wet or cold hands or while wearing gloves. Okay’s textured pattern is aggressive enough to provide a positive, secure grip without interfering with insertion or removal from magazine pouches. Also an industry first is an embossed “5.56MM” marking on each side for quick an easy caliber identification.

SureFeed® E2 magazines are 100% made in the U.S.A. with components that meet or exceed demanding Mil-Spec requirements. The magazine bodies and floor plates are made from lightweight 6061 aluminum and heat treated to U.S. military specifications for strength and durability. All magazines are hard coat anodized and available with either a Mil-Spec DFL (dry film lube) grey finish, Tactical Black PTFE finish or Desert Tan PTFE finish. Our anti-tilt, self-lubricating, non-hygroscopic polymer follower and high-performance Mil-Spec stainless-steel spring keep rounds properly aligned and tensioned for flawless performance.

Reliability is the most important quality for any magazine. Okay Industries achieves this reliability through extensive quality controls. Every magazine goes through an exhaustive battery of Mil-Spec inspections and tests before being shipped. Some of the areas tested include weld integrity verification, feed lip tolerance and component quality verification. This all leads up to final assembly where proprietary qualification of each magazine is 100% tested for fit and function. This proprietary inspection and testing process results in the superior quality of SureFeed® magazines and is the reason Okay Industries has been an authorized supplier to the U.S. Military since co-developing the original USGI 30rd magazine in 1973.

SureFeed® E2 magazines are now available in 30 round capacities with an MSRP of $19.95. For more information visit www.surefeedmagazines.com or the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/surefeedmagazines

5col Survival Supply Attachenator Kit

5col Survival Supply’s Attachenator Kit is now available. This clever kit comes with everything you need to attach all kinds of gear to a PALS grid, a backpack, your belt, and more.

The kit includes:

  • 4 ITW GTSP Cordlocs
  • 5 ft. 1/8″ diameter Shock Cord
  • 5 ft. MIL-C-5040h Type 3 Parachute Cord

This kit can be very convenient for the guy who doesn’t already have these components on hand. In order to piece together a kit like this, you would have to buy all the separate components in bulk which not everyone wants to do.

I have used these same components to do all kinds of things like:

  • Mount a TQ to a PALS grid
  • Attach trekking poles to a backpack
  • Attach water bottles to a backpack shoulder strap
  • Make a strap for managing a sling on a rifle
  • Make retaining straps or a grid for securing bulky outerwear to a pack
  • Make adjustable dummy cords for gear like a compass
