Aeroknox Knucks

What could be more American than really cool single finger knucks? How about really cool red, white, and blue single finger knucks?

I’ve enjoyed collecting knucks for a number of a years. I rarely carry them but I appreciate the way various craftsman add their own signature style to what is a basically just a very simple shape. It’s an interesting medium for creativity… like oil on canvas but with more black eyes.

Aeroknox is more known for their strikingly styled and beautifully machined handgun grips. These knucks are dripping with that same angular, stealth bomber style found on all of their products. I own one of these knucks in black, so when these patriotic versions popped up, they definitely caught my eye. These knucks are not currently available on the Aeroknox website but it is still well worth checking out Aeroknox.com.

Vulture Equipment Works Bamboo Cocking Serrations

Vulture Equipment Works has a laser engraver, free time, a Gen 5 Glock, and an island state of mind. That is the only way to explain their bamboo cocking serrations… not that they need an explanation because this is easily the best thing I have seen so far today.

If they don’t start offering this treatment as a service and calling it Tiki-Texture or maybe BamBoom, I think they are missing the boat.

Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling)

The use of a sling as a stabilization aid is becoming something of a lost art. That may start to change now that Magpul is rolling out the RLS – a simple, affordable shooting sling that functions somewhat like a Rhodesian sling but with the benefits of some modern materals.

From Magpul:

Building on the heritage and proven performance of Magpul’s MS Sling series, the Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) is a durable, lightweight, and affordable shooting aid and retention device. What at first appears to be an unassuming weapon sling is quickly transformed by the end user into a rock-solid, adjustable, isometrically-tensioned shooting aid. Combining the best features of Rhodesian and 1907 match-style slings, the RLS is born of Magpul’s famous proprietary nylon mesh webbing and high-strength polymer hardware.

The American-made Magpul RLS combines legendary Magpul innovation, quality, and design into a simple and effective shooting aid for less money than many slings that merely carry a rifle. Available in BLK or COY.

Attendees are invited to visit B.E. Meyers & Co. in the USA Security Defense Pavilion at booth #B627 where they will be exhibiting the MAWL-DA infrared and visible green weapon laser pointer/illuminator; the GLARE series of weapon mounted Hail/Warning/Illumination laser systems; the BOARS-M2 optics and accessories rail for the M2 platform; and the IZLID series of IR and SWIR laser pointers/illuminators for target marking and air-to-ground integration.

The B.E. Meyers & Co. MAWL-DA ® (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser – Direct Action) is an IR and visible green weapon laser for aiming and illumination. Understanding the shortcomings of common laser devices in use with both military and law enforcement, B.E. Meyers & Co. built the MAWL-DA with three ideal settings (Close Range, Mid Range, and Long Range) which allow for seamless transitions in any operational environment. Engineered with B.E. Meyers & Co.’s proprietary VCSEL technology, it offers significantly improved beam quality and clarity while maintaining efficiency. The MAWL-DA was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the modern night fighter and is currently used by Special Operations Forces across the world.


B.E. Meyers and Co.’s GLARE® series of weapon mounted lasers is the most advanced Ocular Interruption System available capable of providing effective Hail and Warning. Featuring B.E. Meyers & Co.’s patented SmartRangetechnology, the GLARE RECOL™, GLARE HELIOS™, and LA-22/U provide immediate and recognizable visual warning from 4m to 20km and beyond while maintaining eye safe power output on target.


The BOARS® -M2 is a low profile optics and accessories rail for the M2 platform. It offers quick-disconnect with true return-to-zero reattach for switching between day and night optics. The BOARS-M2’s minimal height over receiver allows for a lower end user defilade, while still featuring a pass through aperture for use with iron sights. 


The IZLID® series of long range IR and SWIR laser pointers and illuminators have quickly become a sought after signaling and target marking commodity for handheld, weapon, and aircraft mounted applications. They have been to hell-and-back in conflict zones across the world, and stay operational and effective no matter how much abuse they take in the field.



B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is a family owned business that prides itself on serving the needs of the warfighter with passion, ingenuity, and innovation. They design, engineer, and manufacture optoelectronic and defense solutions for the U.S. and her allies, specifically for those who are forward in the fight, both today and into the future.
