Which was the most important factor when managing our reference collection.  If you are looking for a quality weapons rack solution for your vault room or armory? It is my opinion this is best …

Does Brass Hit The SRO?

A viewer was looking at some images we posted of the SRO a top the EDC X9L. The SRO attached shows some wear on one of the front bezel’s. He asked is that was from brass hitting the optic?  My initial reaction was no. I had never perceived any brass bouncing off the glass or SRO housing under use. I …

JUST A THOUGHT…..

The one thing in common that people who lived under dictatorships,  from places like Nazi Germany and the old USSR or modern China will tell you,  is about how people have to hide their opinions,  how dissent means risking punishment, exclusion,  loss of jobs or businesses, and worse.

POTD – Weapon Rack Test

We have installed a small corner of the weapon rack system for the new armory. It’s slow going. Missing parts. This section was supposed to hand 50 rifles.  We can rack 12. Needless to say this is disappointing and inconvenient. Having long guns strewn all over the place makes it hard to work in here.  But we’ll get there eventually.  …

Users can choose to put a 13, 14 or 15lb spring in these guns.  Additionally, users can choose a traditional round-wire spring for a modern flat-wire spring.
