Multicam Quilts Update: New Camo Patterns, Prototypes, and Custom Options

There is a lot of news coming out of Multicam Quilts lately including two new Multicam patterns, an interesting prototype, and the availability of custom options.

Multicam Quilts were previously only offered in the original Multicam pattern. Now they are offering two new patterns on a limited basis. They already have 50/50 NYCO Multicam Tropic material in hand and are taking orders. This limited pattern will likely sell out quickly. Pre-orders are also already open for Multicam Black quilts which will be made once the material is available.

Typically, Multicam Quilts are backed with plush Polartec 200 fleece. However, they are experimenting with an interesting new option for the backing – Coyote Brown Polartec Thermal Pro FR. This fire resistant material is only in use on a prototype for now but it could become available if there is enough interest.

Finally, if you are following the development of these quilts on AR15.com or social media, you have likely seen the custom options that people have been requesting like the paracord loops shown above. This is one of perks from buying a handmade item from a small business. They are able to accommodate customization requests.

The EDC Tool Roll: Wera Rapidaptor Bit Holder

The EDC Tool Roll is a feature on Jerking the Trigger in which we profile various every day carry worthy tools. The tools shown aren’t multi-tools but rather real tools, that by virtue of their compact size, light weight, usefulness, or unique functionality, can find a place in any range kit, emergency kit, or every day carry bag.

Feel free to comment on the tools that you carry so we can all learn! The discussion on these posts has been very valuable so far.


We have spent a lot of words looking at various drivers in The EDC Tool Roll series. The truth is that even the slickest, most EDC-worthy driver won’t help you if you can’t reach the fastener you need to tighten or loosen. Many of the drivers that we have reviewed so far lack the reach of a conventional screwdriver. This is why I always have an extension of some kind in my tool kit for EDC or range use.

The best extension I have used are the Wera Rapidators. I use the 100mm (about 4″) in my own version of The EDC Tool Roll. I used to use a basic magnetic extension most of the time and those still work. However, the quality is often lacking (loose fit, lousy or broken magnets, etc.) and the Rapidaptor line has features that I have grown to like.

First, the quality is excellent. The metal parts of the Rapidaptor line are finished with a matte finish that looks like hard chrome or maybe just a bright stainless. Whatever it is, it seems to hold up very well. The fit is tight and precise both with the bits and with whatever you are using to turn the Rapidaptor. As someone who has had a cheap extension with poor fit locked into an impact driver to the point of needing tools to remove it, I appreciate that precise fit. It also holds up to use in a cordless impact driver.

Second, the design of the bit holding portion of the Rapidaptor is excellent. It actively locks bits into place automatically upon inserting a bit. It is held in place via a good quality magnet and the locking collar. This collar (the green and black part in the picture) spins freely allowing the user to grip when attempting to control a fastener. Pulling up on the collar releases the bit without popping it out to be lost. Installing and removing bits can all be done easily with one hand.

Wera makes shorter versions of this bit holder but the I find the 100mm version to be just right. Short enough to carry in my kit but long enough to reach an AR-15 grip screw or to use in installing/uninstalling a Glock magazine catch spring. I also find myself using this with my power tools somewhat frequently.

Where to Buy:

Maybe you have a local brick and mortar option for purchasing imported tools… but I sure don’t. I purchased my Wera Rapidaptor on Amazon: Wera Rapidaptor 100mm Bit Holder

Other Tools That I Have Used with the Rapidaptor:

Victorinox Swisstool Plus Replacement Wrench

Wera Kraftform Kompakt 10

Engineer DR-07 Twin Wrench Driver

Tekton 14-in-1 Offset Screwdriver (2945)

Replaceable Edition Fix It Sticks

All New Holster from Bravo Concealment – BCA 3.0

Bravo Concealment just released their latest holster – the BCA 3.0. The BCA OWB holster is Bravo Concealment’s best known holster. This new version of the holster continues the BCA’s history of providing a quality holster in a timely manner and at a very competitive price.

From Bravo Concealment:

The NEW BCA 3.0 Gun Holster still has the same features that made our BCA the BEST OWB gun holster in the industry. So how did we change something so iconic without taking away from it? Well, for starters, we made it personal. How? By adding a retention setting to it. Now you can take your desired retention and apply it to your gun holster. You can go from a medium light retention to a very heavy retention. Ideal for anyone who carries. We have also taken away from itʼs footprint by eliminating material from itʼs bottom corners to make it smaller and lighter. This makes it a very comfortable OWB gun holster while still keeping itʼs well known characteristic of staying close to your body.

Finally. We now use a diversified Polymer plastic that is known for its ideal balance between rigidity, impact strength and hardness to protect your firearm at all times. Whether you are reholstering consecutively at the range or just carrying while protecting yourself and those around you on a daily basis, know that your firearm is secure and safeguarded. All this makes the NEW BCA 3.0 Gun Holster just as good as itʼs predecessor while inheriting a little flair to it.

Features and Specs:

• NEW Solid locking adjustable retention
• NEW Minimalist Design for even more all day comfort
• NEW Polymer plastic provides supreme rigidity and impact strength assuring protection of your firearm.
• Designed for outside the waistband carry, but can easily be converted to inside the waistband by swapping out the belt loops with our IWB belt clips.
• 10° cant enhances concealment under loose garments.
• Robust 1.50” or 1.75” injection molded belt loops prevent breakage even under rigorous use.
• Belt loops can be replaced with Belt Clips for inside the waistband carry.
• The BCA creates adequate room for a positive grip thus enabling a smooth draw with solid weapon retention.
• All edges on holster are rounded for comfort
• All holsters are curved to fit the contours of your body.

The BCA 3.0 is available for the Glock 19 initially. New versions will be available soon.

New from Arbor Arms USA – Safariland Holster Single Leg Strap Adapter

Safariland’s UBL holster adapters are extremely handy. They drop the holster just enough to provide clearance for gear like body armor while not placing the holster too far down the wearer’s leg. The only problem is that this dropping the holster below the belt can allow the holster to rotate or move during the draw stroke which can cause binding.

The Safariland Holster Single Leg Strap Adapter from Arbor Arms seeks to fix the binding issue by securing the holster to the wearer’s leg so that it can’t tilt away from the wearer. The adapter works in conjunction with the Safariland UBL 6070 series drops and includes a laser cut laminated nylon aramid backed material panel and a strap. The panel bolts between the holster and UBL drop and can accept either 1″ or 1.5″ straps. It is available with either or both strap sizes.

Single strap setups have frequently be improvised with UBL drop adapters by simply sandwiching a strap between the holster body and UBL. This works but places the strap higher on the holster which places it a steeper angle as it wraps around the wearer’s leg and can lead to discomfort. The Arbor Arms USA Safariland Holster Single Leg Strap Adapter places the strap lower which could be more comfortable.

It’s Back! TangoDown AK Battlegrip

If you are an AK shooter, I am about to make your day. TangoDown is bringing the AK Battlegrip back – the same grip, by the original designers, from the original molds.

With the folding of US Palm, the AK Battlegrip disappeared from the market. The grips remained so popular that they were fetching scalpers prices on the secondary market. That is all about to change now that TangoDown is bringing them back.

From TangoDown:

TangoDown® Inc is excited to announce the addition of the BG-AK BATTLEGRIP®! Several years ago, we designed and manufactured the AK rifle grip for an Arizona start-up company. When they closed-up shop, we received a huge number of requests for the grip, as it was known to be based on our successful BG-16 AR-15 product.

As the creators of the AK grip, we made the decision to join forces with the company that received all of the AK product tooling after the start-up’s demise. Once again, we are proud to produce the original grip, from the original designers, and from the original molds.

The BG-AK is made of the same durable material as our entire BATTLEGRIP® line and offers similar TD Inc signature features: comfortable ergonomic design; aggressive non-slip texture; and patented internal storage for essential spare parts or optic batteries.

If you’re attending the upcoming Red October event in Utah October 6th and 7th, stop by the XTech Tactical booth to say hello.
