Blade Rigs Karambite Sheath

Blade Rigs has created a new sheath for the Max Venom designed Karambite. If you are familiar with the knife, you know how small it is and that small size can present a challenge when trying to create a sheath that keeps the knife accessible. Blade Rigs solved that problem by anchoring the sheath behind the belt and positioning most of the knife up above the belt line. This design allows the belt to stabilize the sheath and the wing turns the knife in toward the wearer for concealment.

Check out the Blade Rigs Karambite sheath.

Now Shipping: Magpul Core Covers and PMAG 25 LR/SR Sand

Magpul is shipping two new products as of today.

magpul core covers

Their new Magpul CORE Cover is a fitted ballcap style cover that is constructed from mesh. I have really come to favor as much mesh as possible in a cap to make it easier to wear during shooting, exercising, and other active pursuits.

Their PMAG 25 M118 LR/SR 7.62 Magazines are now available in their Sand polymer. If you have an AR308, it is nice to have at least a few of these 25 round magazines. While they are heavier, they are long enough to be used as a monopod when shooting from the prone and that can be a useful marksmanship aid.

Sneaky Bags Expands Spyder Line

Sneaky Bags has expanded their Spyder line to include two additional larger sizes. The Spyder bag was originally designed to conceal very compact SBRs but users wanted the same feature set for larger carbines so Sneaky Bags has introduced a new 31″ length and 36″ length to go with the original 27″ length bag.

All 3 sizes have the same features that made the original great. They are relatively low-profile in appearance, having more in common with a sports equipment bag than most gun cases. The clam shell opening allows easy access to the rifle or rifles contained inside and the magazine loadout that can be stored and organized in the divider between the two main compartments. The outside compartments can be used to carry a number of items up to and including handguns or even smaller SMGs if you have need for such things.

Crowdfund This: Smith & Bradley Springfield Classic Field Watch

The simple field watch has been a functional and stylish men’s watch option for pretty much as long as it has existed. It is an absolute classic thanks to its slim, simple case, readable dial, and it’s chameleon like ability to go with a t-shirt and jeans on the range or a business suit at the office. The field watch is what you might call a classic.

Smith & Bradley’s new Springfield Classic Field Watch takes that clean, classic style and injects a dose of modern, muscular proportions. This timepiece is still an easy-to-wear field watch through and through but it’s style, proportions, and features are subtly more contemporary.

The Springfield starts with a 48mm case machined from 316-L stainless steel. It is large enough to look at home on large wrists but it is trim enough to work for anyone. Everything about the watch has been scaled up to meet the proportions of the case. The large crown is easy to use but also works as a design element. The long hand set fills the space of the face well without crowding it. The 20mm lug spacing ensures that you have more strap options than you would with the narrower lug spacing of a traditional field watch while also working with the larger proportions of the Springfield.

The 33mm diameter of dial let the designers at S&B convey a lot of information without making it feel crowded or unreadable. The 12 hour markings are very large and very easy to read, even at night thanks to the C3 Luminova (the hands are also C3 Luminova coated). The 24 hour and second markings are smaller and out of the way. The calendar placed at 3 o’clock on the dial is unobtrusive and easy to read. The dial is covered with a domed sapphire crystal. There is a Swiss Ronda Quartz movement under the dial, driving the hand set.

The Springfield looks great and it has good stuff under the hood but it also very affordable. This is Smith & Bradley’s 4th Kickstarter funded watch and it is also their most affordable by far. The single watch perk starts at just $159 which is downright impressive for a watch with sapphire crystal, Swiss movement, 316-L stainless case, C3 Luminova, and style this clean and versatile. The 2 watch perk brings the price per watch down even further!

The Springfield is built in the USA. It is available with a stainless finish or black PVD finish. It will come with a NATO style strap.
