AR15 Stocks

AR15 Stock – time for a change?

An easy way to radically change your AR15 is to replace the stock. A more difficult choice is to pick one from the huge variety available today!

AR15 Stock - Magpul

You need to first step back and think about what you want…you will want to consider the following.

Top 5 factors when choosing an AR15 stock -

1. Design – simple and lightweight? Or something robust to be used to store items?

For simple and light weight design, please look at these two AR15 stocks: Magpul MOE stock      Magpul CTR stock

If you prefer a stock that provides a more robust platform and even gives you storage space for batteries, etc., you might consider one of the following AR15 stocks:

 Command Arms CBS     Mission First Battlelink Utility Stock     

 VLTOR EMod Enhanced ModStock

2. Buffer Tube Assembly – already have one or need one? A buffer tube assembly will allow you to convert from using a fixed style stock to a collapsible stock on your AR15. Most AR15 stocks will give you a choice of purchasing the stock with or without the tube assembly. For example, we have the CAA CBS (without buffer tube assembly) or the CAA CBST (with buffer tube assembly).  

3. Additional Accessories – do you anticipate adding accessories to your AR15 stock, such as a cheek riser, buttpad or sling mount? If so, you will need to choose an AR15 stock that gives you that option.

4. Mil-Spec or Commercial version? AR15 stocks come in two “sizes”, if you will, Mil-Spec and Commercial. The difference is the size of the buffer tube and the thread pattern. *Note – there are some AR15 stocks that will fit both, but it will be noted in the description.

5. Fixed Position or Collapsible style? While most prefer the collapsible AR15 stock, there are some that want the fixed position. Your choice will depend on the application. Most precision, long-range shooters like the fixed position style. Although there have been some major advancements made for using a multiple position stock for precision shooting – Command Arms Sniper Stock.

 Hope this helps when you decide to look at a new AR15 stock. Gun Gear USA proudly offers the top names in AR15 stocks – they can all be found HERE.

We are very excited to add the Fenix Flashlight product line to our line-up. I actually saw Fenix flashlights in a retail store and was so impressed I contacted them that night.

Magpul

Need a way to attach a sling to the fore-end of your AR 15? Check out the Magpul RSA, Rail Sling Attachment.

The Magpul RSA provides a forward sling attachment point for the Magpul MS2 or MS3 and other clip-in systems. All you need is a small amount of Picatinny rail space for the RSA to mount on.

Get it here – http://www.gungearusa.com/MAGPUL-MAGPUL_RSA_RAIL_SLING_ATTACHMENT.html

Come back for more Magpul products next time.

www.GunGearUSA.com


Magpul (contd.)

Magpul

As we discussed last time, Magpul is well known for innovative products designed for tactical applications, such as the AR 15. The AFG, Angled Fore Grip, is a great example.

At first glance, the Magpul AFG is not something that comes across as particularly useful. It is only when you hold a rifle with the AFG mounted that you understand.

The AFG was designed to accomodate natural body mechanics and offers a VERY comfortable platform. It also perfectly lines up your hand for a pressure switch or other Laser/Light tactical product.

All mounting hardware is included and the AFG easily mounts on a Picatinny Accessory rail.

Get yours here – http://www.gungearusa.com/MAGPUL-MAGPUL_AFG_-_ANGLED_FORE_GRIP.html

Even more Magupul next time!

www.GunGearUSA.com


Magpul Tactical Products (contd.)

Magpul

Although Magpul has many, many fine products designed for the AR 15 and other tactical rifles, the PMAG is likely the most ‘famous’ Magpul product.

The PMAG was introduced during a time that we all considered steel the premier material and plastic as inferior. The PMAG changed that.

Considered by many as virtually indestructible, the PMAG is constructed of an advanced polymer and can take incredible abuse. It is extremely lightweight and corrosion resistant for a LONG life. Maybe most surprising of all, it is no more expensive than other AR 15 mags.

Nikon M-223 Scope (contd.)

Nikon M-223 Mount

We have been covering the Nikon M-223 series of scopes and I also wanted to show you another product, the M-223 AR 15 Mount.

The Nikon M-223 AR Mount (part #743) is for the M-223 series of scopes and will fit right on a Picatinny or Weaver style base. It is made of lightweight alloy and has a built-in 20 MOA incline for elevation. It has 3 bolts to secure it to the base.

The rings are built into the base and only the top part of the rings come off to allow the scope to be set in the mount.

The Nikon M-223 AR 15 mount is a nice addition for your M-223 scope.

You can find it here -http://www.gungearusa.com/SCOPES_AND_SIGHTS-NIKON_M-223_SCOPE_MOUNT.html

That is it for the Nikon M-223 scope series. I hope you enjoyed taking a look at these fine rifle scopes and please let me know if you have any questions.

 Thanks for reading.

www.Gun GearUSA.com


Nikon M-223 Scope (contd.)

Nikon M-223 Scope (contd.)

We have covered every scope in the Nikon M-223 series with one exception – the 2.5-10×40 with Laser IRT…that is Immediate Ranging Technology. Wait until you see this.

The Nikon IRT basically has a rangefinder built into the scope! With a touch of the button, the user can get the distance the target is right in the reticle. Then choose the correct circle on the BDC 600 reticle. Oh, did I forget to mention the scope has BDC 600? Yes, not only does this provide the distance to the target, it also has the ballistic circles to use for that specific distance. All without ever taking your eye off the target.

The Nikon One-Touch Laser technology continuously ranged and displays the distance for 12 seconds with a single push of the button.

Other features include the Side Focus Parallex Adjustment.

If you are looking for the ultimate rifle scope for your AR 15, this is the scope to have. It is not cheap, but has so many features to offer and replaces a separate rangefinder.

We have one more item to cover in the Nikon M-223 series and that is a mount designed just for the M-223 scopes. See you next time.

www.GunGearUSA.com


Nikon M-223 Scope (contd.)

Nikon M-223 Scope (contd.)

This is the last scope in the M-223 series before we look at the truly innovative Nikon Laser IRT.

We jumped up in size last time, with a larger objective lens (42mm) and more power (3-12), with a scope that featured the traditional Nikon Nikoplex reticle. Today we are going to stick with the same features and size, but this model has the BDC 600 reticle, Nikon Model 8489.

As I mentioned before, the BDC 600 has some truly great features to offer the long-range shooter. It is specifically designed for the .223 (5.56mm NATO) with a 55-grain bullet (with polymer tip), and aids the shooter greatly in long distance shooting.

The BDC 600 reticle has open circle aiming points below the center crosshairs used for specific distances all the way out to 600 yards. This unique reticle gives the shooter a tremendous advantage in speed when dialing in those long shots.

It also the SF feature…the SF stands for Side Focus Parallex Adjustment. This feature allows you to adjust for Parallex quickly and easily. Parallex adjustment is handy when shooting at extremely long distances.

Here is a link to the product page for the M-223 3-12x42SF /BDC 600 -http://www.gungearusa.com/Scopes_and_Sights-Nikon_M-223_Riflescope_3-12X42SF_600_BDC.html

One more to go! Please come back and see the last M-223 scope with an incredible feature.

Nikon M-223 Scope (contd.)

Nikon M-223 Scopes

The next two scopes in the M-223 series get bigger, as in a larger objective lens and more power.

First up is the 3-12x42SF with the Nikoplex reticle. This scope, model #8488, provides the shooter a noticeable difference in long-range shots with a 42mm objective lens and power up to 12X.

Nikon M-223 Model 8488

As we have mentioned before, the Nikon Nikoplex reticle has thick crosshairs on the outer edge and fine, thin crosshairs in the center. This particular model also has the Rapid Action Turrets. The Rapid Action Turret allows the shooter to use the feature to dial in your elevation from 100 yards to 600 yards in less than one revolution.

It also the SF feature…the SF stands for Side Focus Parallex Adjustment. This feature allows you to adjust for Parallex quickly and easily. Parallex adjustment is handy when shooting at extremely long distances. 

A lot of technology in one scope, that sums up the Nikon M-223 #8488. You can find more information for this model here -http://www.gungearusa.com/SCOPES_AND_SIGHTS-Nikon_M-223_Riflescope_3-12x42SF_Nikoplex.html

Today we will look at an extremely popular scope in the M-223 series, the 2-8×32 with a BDC 600 reticle, In fact, this is our most popular scope here at Gun Gear USA.

Nikon M-223 Scope Model 8487

This scope is basically identical to the scope we reviewed yesterday (the M-223 2-8×32 with Nikoplex) with one exception, the BDC 600 reticle. Specifically designed for the .223 (5.56mm NATO) with a 55-grain bullet (with polymer tip), the BDC 600 aids the shooter greatly in long distance shooting.

The BDC 600 reticle has open circle aiming points below the center crosshairs used for specific distances all the way out to 600 yards. This unique reticle gives the shooter a tremendous advantage in speed when dialing in those long shots.

Nikon M-223 Scope Model 8486

The model #8486 has the Nikoplex reticle, thick crosshairs on the outer edge and fine, thin crosshairs in the center. This particular model also has the Nikon Rapid Action Turret technology.

Nikon M-223 Scope (contd.)

We introduced the very popular Nikon M-223 series of scopes last time and provided an overview of the line-up. We also provided some basic information on the many abbreviations they use for the M-223 scopes. Be sure and take a look if you need any information on those.

In the coming days we are going to look in more detail at each scope in the M-223 series. Today we are going to check out the Nikon M-223 1-4×20 Point Blank scope, model #8485.

Nikon M-223 Scope

This model is specifically designed for close-range shooting, mainly out to 200 yards. The exclusive Point Blank Reticle offers a super wide field of view and quick acquisition for fast and accurate shots. Nikon also suggests this particular model as being ideal for 3-Gun matches.

Nikon M-223 Scope

Nikon M-223 Scope

It is no secret that the AR 15 rifle has become extremely popular. It is also no secret that several scope manufacturers have developed products specifically for the AR 15, scopes that are tailored to the .223 bullet trajectory. While there are many, we are going to look in more detail at the Nikon M-223 series of scopes.

Nikon M 223 Scope

Nikon is a name synonymous with quality rifle scopes (Nikon offers a Full Lifetime Warranty on the M-223 Scopes). They have been producing fine scopes for many years. Recently, Nikon introduced the M-223 scope for the AR 15. There are six scopes in the series and all are engineered for one bullet – the .223 (5.56mm NATO) with a 55 grain bullet (polymer tip) sizzling at 3240 fps.

The six scopes in the M-223 series include the following; 2.5-10×40 Laser IRT, 1-4×20 w/Point Blank reticle, 2-8×32 w/Nikoplex reticle, 2-8×32 w/BDC 600 reticle, 3-12x42SF w/Nikoplex, & the 3-12x42SF w/BDC 600 reticle. Before we review each scope in detail, I would like to provide some definitions for Nikon’s abbreviations.

BDC Reticle – the BDC, or Bullet Drop Compensator, reticle is designed for long range shooting. The reticle has additional aim points, in the case for the Nikon M-223 it is circles, along the lower vertical crosshair. The circles are used for specific aiming points on the BDC 600 from 100 to 600 yards.

Nikon BDC 600 Reticle

Nikoplex Reticle – this is the traditional crosshairs, with a bolder and thicker crosshair on the outer edges and a fine, thin crosshair in the center.

Nikon M 223 Nikoplex reticle

SF – The SF stands for Side Focus Parallex Adjustment. This feature allows you to adjust for Parallex quickly and easily. Parallex adjustment is handy when shooting at extremely long distances.

Nikon SF Side Focus on M 223 Rifle Scope

Point Blank Reticle – this reticle uses the traditional crosshairs with a small dot in the center of the crosshair. Mainly used for close-range shooting.

Nikon M 223 Point Blank Reticle IRT – Immediate Ranging Technology.

Nikon M 223 Immediate Ranging Technology

As I mentioned, we are going to look at each model in greater detail in the coming days. First up is the Nikon M-223 1-4×20 with Point Blank Reticle, Nikon Model #8485.

See you tomorrow!

Concealed Carry Holsters – Summary

 

I hope you enjoyed this series on Conceal Carry holsters. We used a limited, but popular, set of pistols for this series and will certainly continue to expand it as more concealed carry pistols are introduced. As always, if you need any help in selecting a holster for your pistol, give us a call or send an email…we are glad to help.

We are expanding our holster brands, so be sure to check back often for new additions. Holsters are very personal and you need to look at several to find the one you like, especially if you are carrying for long periods of time.

We are also partnering with Conceal Carry instructors in our area to stay up to date with the preferred models people are carrying and feedback on the holsters. We welcome yours, too.

Thanks again and look for a new series soon! I got a feeling an AR 15 will be the next focus…what do you think?

www.GunGearUSA.com


Conceal Carry Holsters (contd.)

Fobus Paddle Holster

The Fobus Paddle Holster also is an option for concealed carry. Some additional measures, such as wearing an untucked shirt or a coat, are necessary though.

The Fobus Paddle Holster is designed to be low profile to aid in concealment. The unique design utilizes retention around the trigger guard, which offers quick draw but also securely retains the weapon. Another great feature of the Fobus holster is its lightweight design.

Since the holster fits the gun like a glove, there are numerous models to accommodate many pistols. Check the list below to find our list of conceal carry pistols for this series and the appropriate holster for each model.

Ruger LCP – KT2G

Ruger LC9 – KTP11

Ruger SR9C – HK1

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact – SWMP

Glock 27 – GL26

Ankle Holsters

So far in the Concealed Carry Holster series we have reviewed Pocket Holsters and Inside the Pants/Inside the Waistband holsters. Today we will look at yet another option, the Ankle holster. Although not always an option during summer (especially this summer!), an ankle holster when worn with pants offers a really nice carry place.

The Fobus Ankle holster offers the following features -

-          Extremely lightweight

-          Adjustment screw for tension

-          Channel to protect sight

-          One piece body construction

-          Adjustable Velcro strap for closure

-          ¾” thick suede lined Cordura pad

Below is the correct Fobus Ankle Holster for each pistol -

Conceal Carry Holsters (contd.)

Conceal Carry Holsters (contd.)

Yesterday we continued looking at holster options for concealed carry pistols  by examining Inside the Pants/Inside the Waistband models. The Blackhawk Inside-the-Pants was in the spotlight and today it will be the Desantis Sof-Tuck.

We previously discussed the innovative Desantis Nemesis and Super Fly Pocket holsters, but do not forget about their awesome Inside the Pants/Inside the Waistband holster called the Sof-Tuck.

The Sof-Tuck has really soft, no slip suede and is super comfortable. The suede is reinforced with premium saddle-type leather that helps when re-holstering. It also has another innovative feature – the holster has an adjustable cant. This will help considerably when adjusting the holster for comfort. The Sof-Tuck can be worn in a variety of positions, including strong side, cross draw or small of the back.

You can find the correct Desantis Sof-Tuck for your pistol below -

Ruger LCP106NAR7Z0

Ruger SR9C106NAI4Z0

Glock 27106NAE1Z0

Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380 - 106NAU7Z0

Conceal Carry Holsters (contd.)

In addition to the Pocket holster, another option is the Inside the Pants/Inside the Waistband holster. We will look at this holster from Blackhawk and Desantis.

As we mentioned in the last post, pistol sizes have shrunk and become small enough we can talk about carrying them in our front pockets and inside our waistband. Some of the Slim pistols introduced recently are even better for this option.

Both the Desantis Sof-Tuck and Blackhawk Inside-the-Pants are fantastic options.

The Blackhawk Inside-the-Pants holster offers an ultra thin, three layer nylon laminate that is very comfortable next to skin. It also has a very smooth lining for quick draw. It has a hook and loop retention strap and the belt clip slips over the top  of belt or pants to retain holster.

Here is a list of the sizes available and the guns they fit.

 

00:    2?-3? Barrel Small/Medium Double Action Revolvers (except 2? 5-shot)
01:    3?-4? Barrel Medium autos (Ruger LCP)
02:    4? Barrel Medium and Intermediate Double Action Revolvers
03:    4 1/2? – 5? Barrel Large Autos
04:    Small Autos (.22 – .25 cal)  Ruger LC9

05:     Smith & Wesson M&P Compact, Glock 27
06:    3 3/4? – 4 1/2? Barrel Large Autos (Ruger SR9C)
07:    3 1/4?  – 3 3/4? Barrel Medium & Large Autos
08:    2? Barrel Small Frame 5-shot Revolvers w/Hammer Spur (Bodyguard .380)

Conceal Carry Holsters (contd)

Conceal Carry Holsters (contd.)

First up in the series of conceal carry holsters for pistols is a Pocket Holster. It is hard to believe that there is even such a thing as a pocket holster for some of us that are used to carring a large revolver on our side for deer hunting, etc. Pistols have become incredibly small in the last few years. Small enough to carry in our front pocket? For a few models, yes.

The Ruger LCP, for one, redefined how small a pistol can really be. It is a tiny, tiny gun that helped fuel a relatively new craze in the shooting sports industry – conceal carry. After its introduction, gun manufacturers scrambled to have something similar. Then just recently, Ruger once again surprised the industry with another revolutionary pistol, a tiny pistol in a very respectable caliber, the LC9. (not that the .380 is not a respectable caliber, just phenomenal to have a 9mm in something so small)

Desantis Holsters followed suite with a great option for such a small pistol, the Pocket holster. The Desantis Nemesis Pocket holster offered a realy cool way to conceal and carry the small pistols around.

The Desantis Nemesis has a “sticky” outside to keep it from moving around in your pocket, a smooth inside for quick draw and breaks up the outline of the gun. The Nemesis became the holster to have for pocket carry. Until Desantis outdid themselves…

After the Nemesis became a big hit, Desantis went back to the drawing boards and made it even better. They introduced the Super Fly. The Desantis Super Fly offers an even stickier outside and a removeable, reversible outer flap to eve further disguise the pistol.

Interested in a Destantis Nemesis or Super Fly for your gun? See the corresponding model for your pistol below -

Ruger LCP – M44BJG3Z0

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact – M44BJE1Z0

Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380 – M44BJU7Z0

Glock 27 – M44BJE1Z0

Next we will look at the Inside the Pants/Inside the Waistband holsters.

Conceal Carry Holsters

This week we are going to take a look at some of the most popular pistols for concealed carry and a choice of holsters for those pistols. We will look at Ankle holsters, two different Inside the Pants/Inside the Waistband holsters, Pocket holsters and the traditional Paddle holster.

Let’s take a look at a list of the pistols chosen for this series. While I understand there are numerous other pistols that are great for conceal carry, I chose these for this initial review. We can certainly add to this later and expand it to include more models. With the numerous introductions of small, concealable pistols, we will definitely need to include more as time goes on. Please keep in mind, too, that although we discuss a holster and one gun, that holster likely also fits several other guns. Feel free to contact us for help in selecting the appropriate holster for a certain pistol, we are glad to help.

These are the pistols that we will include in this series and offer a recommended fit for the holsters chosen.

Ruger LCP

Ruger LC9

Ruger SR9C

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact

Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380

Glock 27

Tomorrow, we will start with a look at the Pocket holster.

 Ruger SR1911

Ruger has finally added a 1911 to their line-up. After years of producing many fine handguns, including one that has redefined what a concealed handgun can be (the LCP .380), Ruger finally developed one on the 1911 platform. At a list price of $799, what can you expect t get? I must admit I do not own one (yet!) so I am only relaying what I hear from others that either do own one or have shot it. And the reviews I hear sound like Ruger has produced a really fine 1911. Evidently they have packed a lot of features into the pistol, so you are getting a lot for a fair price. Some of the features are; - Lightweight Skeletonized trigger - Skeletonized Hammer - Beavertail Safety - Novak Three-Dot Sights - One 8-round and one 7-round Magazine

Already have a Ruger SR1911 and want some accessories? See below:

Paddle Holster - Fobus C21RP

 Grips - Hogue 45000

 New Product from MagPul

 MagPul is an innovator and leader in accessories for guns, especially the AR 15. They develop and introduce some of the coolest products in the industry. We are proud to offer MagPul and recently added several new products from MagPul. Don't worry, we will definitely be adding more…

There is one product I want to make sure you review, if you have an iPhone. The MagPul Field Case is designed to offer some basic protection for your iPhone while duplicating the look and feel of several MagPul products, including the P-Mag ribs for added grip. The case is available in styles for the iPhone 3 or 4, and in several colors. At only $14.50, this case will make a great gift for yourself or someone you know with an iPhone.

www.GunGearUSA.com


 AR 15 - New addition

I think we sometimes see something enough that we almost grow numb to it. We may not realize the usefulness or potential because we are used to it, even though we may have not even used it. This was the case with a really simple item for me recently. I have a bipod on my AR 15 mainly for using as a display at shows. I initially installed it on the hand rail and left it there, even though I KNEW I wanted to install a vertical grip. Finally, I got around to moving the bipod from the rail to the barrel making room for the grip. What a difference! It feels so natural to use the vertical grip and it also helps with control if you are rapid-firing. Simple additions can make a HUGE difference. www.GunGearUSA.com


 AR 15 with Bump Stock

The SSAR-15 from Slide Fire Solutions may very well be the most talked about product this entire year. With a simple replacement of your stock with this unit, you now have a gun that fires in full auto (in principle). I had an opportunity to use an AR-15 that had the bump stock on it last week. Although we struggled initially (because we did not read instructions!), we soon had it going and burning through ammo like crazy. (I apologize for video quality…I was caught without a good camera and had to use an iPhone). http://www.youtube.com/user/ratipton?feature=mhee

Fun stuff!

www.GunGearUSA.com


 Preview

What do we have in store on the blog this week? 1. Bump stock experience - Yes, I shot an AR-15 with the most talked about product this year, the Bump Stock that makes it fully automatic. I will have my take on it, as well as some video of it in action. 2. AR 15 addition - Vertical Grip - This simple product addition made a world of difference. 3. MagPul phone cover - MagPul has introduced an iPhone cover with the famous MagPul feel. 4. Special offer - Of course, I will have a special offer only available here!

Be sure and come back to see details on these topics this week!

New Product - Single Point Tactical Sling

We have added a new Single Point Tactical sling to the webstore. Priced competitively at $15.95, this sling is well built and very durable. This new sling has been a huge hit at the recent gun shows we attended and we are happy to offer an alternative to some of the more expensive versions. Made by NcStar, this sling is in stock and ready to ship!

www.GunGearUSA.com


 Other Guns - Range time

In addition to shooting the Sig P220, I had a chance to shoot some other really cool guns. Some that have been on my list for a while and some, well some that were truly unique.

As popular as the Springfield XD has become, you would think that I would have had one in my hands by now. But, I have never pulled the trigger on one of these fine pistols. That all changed last week…

To make up for lost time, I ended up shooting two Springfield XD's. The first was the XD Sub-Compact in .40 caliber. I was very impressed with this gun and really enjoyed the way it handled. Although very small and compact, the recoil was not bad and the gun felt real smooth. I also shot the full size XD in 9mm. This gun was one of my favorites! It also had a set of Crimson Trace Laser grips and this gun was nice to shoot. Very low recoil, good trigger, and the addition of the Crimson Trace produced a great system that I would be proud to own. A side note on the Crimson Trace: this was my first time to use Crimson Trace Laser grips and I was very impressed. The pressure switch for activating the laser was so sensitive that it was very natural to just grip the gun and the laser came on. They felt very comfortable and in fact, it was hard to tell they were anything different than normal grips. Springfield has definitely produced some fine pistols in recent years and I was glad to FINALLY put some rounds through them. Now, will I add one of them to my own collection? Hopefully soon, real soon.

Next time - heard about the Bump Stock for the AR 15 that enables it to shoot full auto? I had one in my hands at the range and have a full (kind of, really a partial and more details later) report for you.

 Sig P220 - Range Time

I recently bought an older model Sig P220 in .45. According to my research, it was made (or 'proofed') in 1991, German made, and evidently someone took very good care of it. I have had a Sig on my wish list for a while and this one was in the budget. I was not able to confirm whether the green slide was done at the factory or not, but I thought it looked really nice. It originally had the SigLites, but at some point someone replaced them with Trijicon night sights. This past week presented an opportunity to take it shooting and I was not disappointed. It shot extremely smooth and accurately. I especially enjoyed the trigger on this gun. I do think a set of Hogue grips would make a nice addition to this one.

 I have a sneaking suspicion this won't be my last Sig…

 What is Gun Gear USA up to?

Behind the scenes at Gun Gear USA has been pretty busy for the last few months. We attended several gun shows, added accessories to the Ultimate AR 15, bought and shot some new guns, and added lots of new products to the webstore. Whew…it has been awesome! We will be covering these in more details in the following days. So, be sure and come back for more information on each of these activities and of course, keep an eye out for some HOT deals to match our HOT weather.

 Site update - video

We had a video made at a recent gun show of the Gun Cleaning Mats and just had it uploaded to the homepage of our webstore. Thought you all might like to see it and get more details on the mats. Thanks and have a good one!

Snipers, Inc Have any of you seen the Snipers, Inc show featuring the Barrett family? Wow, what a great show! In case you did not know, Ronnie Barrett designed and produced the first shoulder-fired .50 Cal rifle (bearing his name, the Barrett Rifle) back in 1982. Ever since then, him and his family have continued to innovate and introduce more rifles that most people say could never be done. One part of the show that I was impressed with was their devotion to the US Military. They evidently spend lots of time with the people that are using their rifles and getting feedback so they can improve and make them more effective. It was nice to see a company that does not rest on their laurels, but keep pushing themselves even when they could clearly sit back and ride the wave they created a long time ago. They also interviewed an Army Sniper who holds the record for the longest kill shot ever made…I won't spoil this one for you! Unbelievable. You can get details on when the show airs here www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

Little Rock Gun Show Thanks to all of the people that braved the miserable heat this weekend and stopped by the Gun Gear USA display in Little Rock at the State Fairgrounds. We had a great turnout Saturday and the Gun Mats were a big hit again. This weekend, the popular models were the AR 15, 1911, H&K and AK 47. Believe it or not , the SIG mats did not sell as many as usual. We also sold quite a few Tactical accessories. The awesome Tri-Rail scope was a seller, as was the reflex sights. Thanks again! We will be set up this coming weekend at the Springdale Convention Center. If any of you are in Northwest Arkansas for the 4th of July weekend, stop by and say hi. www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

AR-15 Accessories (Contd.) NcStar DDAB We previously discussed the new DGAB from NcStar, but do not forget about the DDAB for a great Reflex sight with a red dot. " LED (Light Emitting Diode) 100% safe for the eyes " Anodized Aluminum body " Heads up display " Unlimited eye relief and field of view " Standard On/Off switch " Powered by three volt lithium battery (CR2032) " Includes extra battery, lens cover, mounting tool www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

AR-15 Accessories (Contd.) Bipod - The last accessory for Phase I of the Ultimate AR-15 was a bipod. I will admit I never even have used a bipod on any of my rifles. Although I do some fairly long-range shooting, mainly for deer hunting, my choice has always been a sandbag. But, a bipod will be useful on the AR, especially for longer shots and while displaying it at gun shows. I chose the ABPGF from NcStar. It is a full size bipod with attachments for mounting it via the barrel, sling stud or rail. The legs are adjustable from 7" to 11" and fold easily out of the way when not in use. After taking it to the range, I have to tell you the bipod is a really nice addition. It does add some weight to the front of the rifle, but for the right application it is handy. www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

Gun Gear USA in Southaven, MS Southaven, MS Gun Show Many thanks to all of the customers that came by the Gun Gear USA display at the Southaven, MS gun show this past weekend. The event was well attended, especially Saturday, and we really enjoyed meeting everyone. The Gun Mats were a big hit again and even though I tried to get the mix correct, I ran out of Glock, AK47, and Sig P220. My apologies to all that were not able to get those, but we have a replacement order on the way that will be here Friday. Our next show will be right here in Little Rock at the Little Rock Fairgrounds, June 25 & 26. We will have Gun Mats, Tactical Accessories and The Ultimate AR-15. See you there! www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

Gun Mats - New Models In addition to the current lineup of Gun Cleaning Mats, we added several new Models, including one that EVERY Gun Enthusiast should own. 2nd Amendment - As gun owners, we certainly are proud of the 2nd Amendment. Now you can show your enthusiasm with this NEW mat containing the famous words we cherish. Get yours here. Smith & Wesson M&P - Smith and Wesson fans, we did not forget you! H&K USP - We also added the popular USP from Heckler & Koch. Springfield XD(M) - We already had the Springfield XD mat, but now we also have the Gun Cleaning mat for the XD(M). www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

AR-15 Accessories (contd.) What good is a tactical weapon without a flashlight, right? For now, the NcStar ATFLB Weaver Mount LED Flashlight tops off the optical accessories on the Gun Gear USA AR-15. The ATFLB has 65 lumens and easily fits on a Weaver or Picatinny accessory rail. It has a cap switch that also accepts the AFWS pressure switch. Additional features are below; - All Aluminum construction; 3 Watt Ultra-Bright LED - 65 Lumens peak output - Momentary and Constant on/off cap switch (compatible with AFWS pressure switch) - Includes Weaver Style Ring Mount - Uses 2 CR123A Lithium Type Batteries (included) Dimensions (INCHES) 4.64Lx1Wx1.12H Weight: 5.7oz. with batteries www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

AR-15 Accessories (contd.) The next accessory I added to the Gun Gear USA AR-15 was a Laser. Although I had most situations covered with the Scope and Green Reflex sight, I still thought a laser sight would be ideal. I chose the NcStar APRLSMG for the compact size and the green laser. Since I have quite a few accessories on this gun, weight comes into consideration. I want to minimize it where I can and the compact size/weight of this laser sight helps a lot. The laser sight is turned on by twisting the tail cap all the way for constant on or by depressing the tail cap for momentary. You can also add the pressure switch (included with the APRLSMG) with a coiled cord so you can have the on/off switch in a place convenient for you. It is mounted easily via the Weaver style mount and hex-head screws. You can adjust the laser for both windage and elevation. If you are looking for a new laser sight, this is the one to have. www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

AR-15 Accessories (contd.) As I mentioned in the last post, we are presently adding some accessories to a new AR-15. I wanted to have both long range and short range sight capabilities with this gun. So, in addition to the 2-7×32 scope, I added a Reflex style sight. This is a fantastic option for short-range shooting. The Reflex style sight is a non-magnified sight that incorporates a red dot or green dot for your point of aim. It is basically a Red-Dot scope without a tube. The benefits are a much wider field of view and quick target acquisition. This particular model uses a green dot for sighting, is tiny and lightweight. Since the scope has the accessory rail, it was simple to add this to the top. Other features include; - The DGAB has sensors that detect the light level and automatically adjust the brightness of the green dot. - There is no On/Off switch. The sight automatically comes on once the cover is removed. - Adjustable for Windage/Elevation. We will look at another sight next time. www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

AR 15 Accessories I recently purchased a new AR-15, very basic with no frills, to build up and add some accessories. The first phase of the project included 2 products that will serve as the building block for a lot of the rest of the project. The first thing was to replace the plastic handrail with a aluminum Quad Handrail from NcStar. This will allow me to add LOTS of additional accessories, as you will see later. I also put a NcStar Tactical 3-Rail, 2-7×32, compact scope with blue illuminated crosshairs. This particular model has the MIL-DOT crosshairs. It attached EASILY with two screws via the weaver base (of course, my AR has a rail on the top to accept this). Those features are enough for a great scope, but check this out. This scope has 16" of rail space built on the outside of the scope! This provides you the capability to mount additional accessories right to the scope and helps with gun balance issues (the scope area is basically the center of the gun…too many accessories at the front of the gun will make it off-balance). We will look at another awesome sight we added next time. Be sure and check out all of the great NcStar products here from Gun Gear USA. www.GunGearUSA.com ________________________________________

Hogue Grips Hogue produces the finest Handgun Grips in the world, along with a growing line of OverMolded® rifle and shotgun stocks, holsters, grip screws and other great firearm accessories. The popular Soft Rubber grips are molded from a durable synthetic rubber that is not spongy or tacky, but gives that soft recoil absorbing feel, without affecting accuracy. This modern rubber requires a completely different molding process than ordinary neoprene and results in a much superior grip. The material Hogue uses does not come apart or deteriorate and is resistant to all solvents and oils used around firearms. Hogue Grips give you a lasting precision fit and durability that will provide years of dependable service. The flexibility of the materials and molding process has allowed Hogue to produce superior rubber grips with features that out perform all other makes. Being a true one-piece grip with a single one-piece insert, Monogrips have no mismatched seam to come apart. And of course the rubber revolver grips have all the features that made the Hogue Monogrip famous. Monogrip features include orthopedic handshape, proportioned finger grooves, (real finger grooves, not just small nonfunctional bumps) and they are fully relieved for speedloaders. All Hogue rubber grips hold securely in cold, wet or sweating hands, and do not have any metal medallions that can irritate the hand. Hogue grips are attractive as well as functional. Molded in a handsome black color they dress up either blue or stainless handguns. Hogue's exclusive "Cobblestone" texture has become the texture of choice among firearm enthusiasts. Cobblestone provides a positive non-irritating stippling feature that replaces traditional checkering. This texture not only gives Hogue a modern and distinctive look, but is also very functional. It is specifically designed to be a balance between a sharply checkered and a smooth grip. Cobblestone provides a firm grip but by relaxing grip pressure allows the hand the mobility of a smooth grip. Hogue's exclusive molding process is exceptionally superior when it comes to Semi-Automatics. Because the rubber they use actually chemically bonds to the insert, they are able to have a smooth hard surface on the inside of the grip. This duplicates a stock grip configuration on the inside, and allows the grip to maintain exacting tolerances. This is a very important feature that sets Hogue apart. Other brands with steel inserts must wrap rubber all the way around the insert which can hang up on the vital working mechanisms found so close to the grip on many automatics. Also because rubber doesn't have to wrap all the way around, the insert design allows Hogue to make a smaller and more comfortable grip for high capacity double stack magazine guns. Gun Gear USA is proud to offer a huge selection of Hogue Grips and Hogue Grip Screws. We are also happy to assist with any fit questions you may have. Please check out our selection today and be sure to let us know if you need any help.
