Dark Star Gear Muzzle Pad

The new Muzzle Pad from Dark Star Gear is soft wedge for use with kydex holsters. It is designed to aid in comfort by cushioned the lower edges of the holster that can dig into the wearer and concealment by pushing the grip of the handgun into the wearer.

Soft wedges are not new. There are number of ways to improvise them and there are other purpose built wedges available. The ergonomic tear drop shape of the muzzle pad and availability of two different firmness levels makes the Muzzle Pad unique.

XTech Tactical Expands Partnership with GOA with OEM47 10/30

XTech Tactical, one of the fastest growing firearms accessory manufactures, is now shipping its OEM47 10/30 (MSRP $19.95) as an expansion of its “Commufornia Special” magazine line. Like the MAG47 10/30, $1 for each magazine sold off the company’s website will go towards Gun Owners of America to fight for gun rights. The magazines will also ship with a $5 off annual membership offer to Gun Owners of America.

The XTech Tactical “Commufornia Special” offers a field strippable 10rd magazine in a 30rd magazine body. This permits much easy mag changes and insertion into the rifle, while still permitting the user to clean the magazine. The term “Commufornia Special” is intended to remind and encourage the company’s customers to get involved in protecting their rights as firearms owners and supporters of the Constitution.

The OEM 10/30 will not function if its blocker is removed due to its reduced spring, and the magazine is only marked as a 10-round magazine.

About the OEM47 Line:

The OEM47 line is a result of numerous requests from rifle manufactures for XTech Tactical to offer a lower cost AK 7.62×39 magazine option to include with the sale of their rifles. However, the company would not settle for simply making a less expensive option without optimizing the value and its competitive placement in the market. The OEM47 line features an all polymer construction using a proprietary composite blend.

After 9 months of development the polymer permits the 30rd, standard capacity, version of the OEM47 to pass drop tests that more expensive US Made AK magazines will not.

The OEM47 line currently is only available as the OEM47 10/30 with the standard capacity 30rd option soon to follow. The OEM47 line up offers a great value to those looking for magazines for recreational and range use. For those looking for a battle-ready magazine, the MAG47 offers the most advanced US manufactured AK magazine on the market. The MAG47 features the most advanced polymer, stainless steel feedlips and locking lugs, where-as, the OEM47 is an all polymer construction.

Forward Controls Design RBF

Forward Controls Design has released their new RBF (Recoil Buffer retainer, Forward controls). The RBF represents an improvement to a TDP spec buffer retainer pin. The pin portion is 10% thicker which will be of some comfort to those who have broken or bent buffer retainer pins in the past. It is machined from 17-4 stainless steel bar stock and heat treated.

Forward Controls Design views the RBF as cheap insurance.

When all the systems in an AR function properly, one could argue is that a reinforced buffer retainer isn’t necessary. We agree, except mix and match parts from different manufacturers and their varying adherence to TDP specs, tolerance staking is far from the exception. Many of us have had this inexpensive part break and toss its tip into the lower receiver, usually in the trigger group and cause a jam. RBF’s billet construction and reinforced tip aim to mitigate this, it could be viewed as cheap insurance, even if the way we make it is anything but cheap.

Tango Down Licenses AK Magazine Design to XTech Tactical

January 3rd, 2019

Mesa, AZ

XTech Tactical, an innovative firearms accessory manufacture based in Mesa, AZ announces the company has reached terms with Tango Down on a licensing deal. Here is the background of the licensed technology:

Around 2002, Tango Down released its AR/M4 ARC Magazine which featured a waffle pattern on its side walls and tread patterns on its front and rear. There were never any patents related to the features. That product continues to be sold today, and it is one of the strongest magazines available for the AR/M4 platform.

Around 2008, Tango Down designed and developed an AK magazine using the same waffle and tread features present on its ARC magazine. Due to the erroneous claims made by Century Arms against XTech Tactical in their common law trade dress lawsuit, XTech Tactical is announcing that it has licensed the rights to all IP related to the AK magazine formally known as the US palm AK30, from Tango Down. Tango Down designed the magazine and has never sold the design to any party including US Palm.

XTech Tactical does not require these rights or any rights from an outside party for its MAG47. “Tango Down has been a strong ally to our company, and we are very thankful for their cooperation during this time!” stated Jeremy Deadman, XTech Tactical’s Director of Sales and Marketing.

Century Arms has stated it acquired US Palm in March of 2018 after signing a terms sheet with US Palm’s owners in January of 2018. Century Arms previously had filed trademark applications on the US Palm name and logo in August of 2017. In September of 2018, Century Arms filed and announced its first lawsuit against XTech Tactical, which was voluntarily dismissed by Century Arms.

Surprising to XTech Tactical, Century Arms then refiled in Arizona adding an AK Grip for which XTech Tactical is solely one of several dealers. Century Arms also added one of XTech Tactical’s owners as a defendant. This second suit is still active in Arizona.

XTech Tactical will be releasing several new products leading up to and at SHOT Show 2019 at its booth #4169. “We are believers in a free market that welcomes innovation and encourages fair competition. We will stay true to our core mission of listening to our customers, offering great customer service, and bringing innovation to the market. We could not be more excited for this year’s SHOT Show!” stated Deadman.

Aimpoint Launches New ACRO™ Series Sight

Malmö, Sweden – June 2018 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in red dot sighting technology, is proud to introduce their new line of red dot sights, the Aimpoint® ACRO™ (Advanced Compact Reflex Optic) Series. The unique small sight design of the Aimpoint® ACRO series electronic red-dot sight was developed for use on pistols and other weapon platforms.

For many years, end users have requested a small enclosed red dot sight to fit on handguns. Utilizing Aimpoint’s advanced sight technology, Aimpoint is proud to launch the first of its kind to the market. The Acro P-1, offers an enclosed system that is much more durable than those with open systems. It is also the only sight in its size category fully tested for shock, vibration, temperature span and other environmental stress.

The Acro P-1 optic can perform under tough conditions while adding negligible size and weight to the equipment. Tested with a minimum of 20,000 rounds on a .40 cal pistol slide, this small optic has proven itself in its size category as the leader in ruggedness and reliability.

Designed for direct integration onto pistol slides, the Aimpoint Acro P-1 sight can also be used as a backup sight for magnifying scopes, personal defense weapons, and on any system where a small red dot is applicable.

The Acro P-1 sight is a 1X (non-magnifying) parallax-free optic that features a 3.5 minute of angle (MOA) red dot for fast target acquisition. It is fully submersible to 25 meters and allows continuous operation for over 1 year on a single CR1225 battery. Dot intensity is adjusted with side push buttons.

“The development of the Acro P-1 sight sets a new standard for compact pistol mounted reflex optics,” said Aimpoint AB President Lennart Ljungfelt. “The commitment we make to our customers is to develop the highest performing red-dot sights available. The Acro P-1 optic fulfills that commitment by providing the lightest and most rugged enclosed red-dot sight in its size category on the market.”
