Ruger American Rifle Ranch Now in 7.62×39

Ruger announced today that they will be adding a new chambering to their Ruger American Ranch line up – 7.62×39! The new Ruger American Rifle Ranch 7.62×39 will feature the same 16.12″ medium contour, threaded, hammer forged barrel found other American Rifle Ranch offerings. It feeds from Mini-30 magazines and weighs in at under 6 pounds.

The idea of a light and handy, magazine fed, bolt-action carbine chambered in a versatile and affordable cartridge like 7.62×39 is appealing to many shooters. Rifles like this were previously somewhat rare in the market with factory threaded options being virtually nonexistent. With Ruger’s manufacturing capacity, hog hunters, deer hunters, and practical rifle enthusiasts should have no problem putting their hands on a 7.62×39 chambered bolt gun.

The use of the Mini-30 magazine is likely to generate mixed opinions but it is an established and readily available magazine. Using it instead of something like an AK-47 magazine allows Ruger to avoid the varying tolerances often found in AK magazines. It should also help keep the weight down to ensure that the Ruger American Ranch remains the light, handy rifle that Ruger intends it to be.

Limited Edition Vickers Medic Sling from Blue Force Gear

Every once in a while, Blue Force Gear opens up the vault and rolls out a limited edition Vickers Sling. Whether it is a limited colorway or their functional but vintage-looking AK slings, they are always cool and they don’t last long. Their newest limited edition release is the previously unobtainable Vickers Medic Sling.

The Medic Sling has an additional slider to offer a wider range of adjustability than the standard Vickers Sling. The sling may be loosened or very quickly cinched close to the wearer if they need to their hands off the rifle. In the case of a medic, they can control their rifle against their body to free both hands for treating a patient. In your case, you can control your rifle against your body to free both hands for scarfing down sandwiches on the range.

From Blue Force Gear:

The Vickers Medic Sling was designed with input from 18D’s and other combat medics that wanted maximum adjustability in their sling, but didn’t want to deal with a long, flopping “tail” as found on some other slings.  The Blue Force Gear Medic Sling uses a dual adjustment set-up so that it functions as a normal Vickers Sling for most uses, but when it needs to be cinched down while working on a patient, fast-roping, or other dynamic activities the second adjuster can be moved through a wide adjustment range to dial the tension in perfectly.  It is made with our premium US materials and construction with a lifetime guarantee.

The Vickers Medic Sling was one of our very first limited release slings in our early days. Ever since it’s limited run, people have asked about it, and now the people have spoken. We’re offering a limited run of this sling for seven days only.

Each Vickers Medic Sling is built-to-order, which may not guarantee shipping within 48 hours of purchase.

As with all Blue Force Gear products, the Medic Sling is made with excellence in the USA, is Berry Compliant and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

Check out the Limited Edition Vickers Medic Sling at BlueForceGear.com. It will be gone on midnight, August 30th.

Scalarworks LDM/PRO

It’s here! Scalarworks just released their LDM/PRO – the newest mount in their Low Drag Mount series designed for 30mm Aimpoints and similar red dot optics.

Easton, PA – August 22, 2017 – Scalarworks is pleased to introduce the Low Drag MountTM for Aimpoint PRO sights; the lightest quick-detach Aimpoint PRO mount in existence.

The LDM/PRO is a lightweight, high-strength, low-profile, quick-detach optic mount for with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rails, that is compatible with the Aimpoint PRO, Aimpoint ACO, Aimpoint CompM2, and Aimpoint CompM3, and most other 30mm tube sights.

The Scalarworks LDM/PRO features a user friendly and low-profile 30mm ring. The Scalarworks ring has a precision fitted alloy steel hinge that ensures even pressure around the optic, without requiring the tedious and imprecise setup that traditional rings do. Twin oversize CNC machined shoulder screws provide even tension and act as structural elements, making the entire ring assembly phenomenally rigid.

Like every Scalarworks Low Drag MountTM, the LDM/PRO has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any quick detach mount on the market. It’s tubular monolithic base is CNC machined from ultra high-strength 7075-T6 aluminum, and features our patented recoil-proof thumbscrew with ball detent mechanism. It also has the same precision telescoping clamp as our popular Aimpoint Micro, and Trijicon MRO mounts, which ensures a repeatable zero with each installation.

The LDM/PRO weighs less than 2.45oz (in lower-third height) which is less than half that of Aimpoint’s bundled QRP2 mount. The LDM/PRO is proudly made in the USA, and is available in both Absolute and Lower-Third Co-Witness height variants.

Aero Precision is working on a new AR-15 lower receiver – likely their Gen 2 Lower to go with their Gen 2 Uppers. These lowers obviously have some pretty slick aesthetics with the angular surfaces, the stylized fence around the magazine release, and what appears to be an integral skeletonized trigger guard. However, the real story here is that magazine well. Just look at it!
