Echo Nine Three Viet-Nine

Echo Nine Three turns out some very cool stuff from the gunsmithing side of their operation. Their latest, the Viet-Nine, is a real crowd-pleaser but, unfortunately, it is not something they intend to offer.

E93 Viet-Nine

This retro 9mm AR-15 build took over 2 years to complete because of how scarce some of the parts are. The mid-length triangular handguards are custom made while the stock and grip are original. The 14.5″ barrel has a permanently attached flash suppressor to bring it to a non-NFA length.

This build is so clean and unique, I had to profile it here.

Advanced Holster 6 Second Mount Holster

Advanced Holster has released initial images of their holster system for the ALG Defense 6 Second Mount. This holster was developed for a unit that is using the 6 Second Mount but a commercially available version is coming soon.

The original holster was designed to work with the unit’s Glocks which had an external compensator, the 6 Second Mount, and Surefire X Series Weapon Lights. It has adjustable tension and is compatible with Safariland mounting accessories.

The use of Safariland mounting accessories is a nice feature, especially for a set up that is not intended for concealment. This holster will be compatible with excellent Safariland components like the UBL, leg shrouds, and Drop Flex Adapters. It will also be compatible with aftermarket products compatible with and made for the Safariland bolt pattern like Tek-Loks, Invictus Practical Holster Hangers, and more.

Crusader Gear – 10/22 Take-Down Bag

10/22 Takedown owners take note. Crusader Gear just released the bag that your 10/22 Takedown should have come with in the first place!

I am really glad to see this bag come to the market and I don’t even own a 10/22 Takedown (I will eventually). I contacted Crusader Gear months ago and asked if they ever considered making an improved bag for the 10/22 Takedown since they make so much 10/22 gear. Their response was “You mean like this?” It turns out they were already prototyping nearly exactly what I had in mind.

The bag has no external webbing, pockets, or Ruger billboard-sized logo so that it slides easily into another bag (like a hiking pack) and has a discreet appearance. It is lightly padded throughout to protect the rifle and optic… That’s right, it is sized to accept full sized optics if necessary. The back of the bag has provisions for attaching straps to created a backpack.

The bag is constructed from 400D Packcloth. All the internal seams are bound. The padding is thin closed cell foam and the flap style opening is secured with Velcro.

This looks to be huge improvement over the bag that ships with the 10/22 Takedown. Check out the 10/22 Take Down Bag at Crusader Gear.
