MasterPiece Arms’ BA Competition Chassis Surveyed as #1 Most Popular Rifle Chassis/Stock by the Precision Rifle Blog (PRB)

PRB recently surveyed top ranked shooters in both the Precision Rifle Series (PRS) and the National Rifle League (NRL) to learn more about the gear being run at long range rifle matches.

Comer, Ga. (February 2019)MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, was recently surveyed to be the number one most popular chassis/stock system used by Precision Rifle Series (PRS) and National Rifle League (NRL)competitors by the Precision Rifle Blog. Cal Zant, shooter and author behind PRB, surveyed 150 of the best precision rifle shooters in the country competing in both PRS and the NRL to find out more about the gear they run in long range rifle competitions. The MPA BA Competition Chassis won the top spot with 27% of the PRS and NRL shooters surveyed running this particular chassis. This is the first year a chassis has won the top spot as the most popular system among this group of shooters.

“All I can say is thank you to all the shooters who have been willing to share their ideas with us. It’s a great honor to be named the most popular brand of chassis/stock systems amongst the top PRS and NRL competitors in the country. We truly are involved with a great community and we look forward to developing even more products with the long-range precision shooter in mind,” said MPA’s President, Phil Cashin.

MPA has several configurations of its highly successful BA Chassis System, with the MPA BA Competition Chassis named the Official Chassis of the 2019 PRS. This competition version includes all the standards features of the original, but includes special enhancements that are designed to give shooters who utilize the competition chassis a competitive advantage when shooting in long range tactical rifle competitions, such as the PRS and related events. There are additional hole locations on the forend for locating the rotating barricade stop, which locks the rifle in place when shooting on a variety of barricade designed stages. The spigot mount attaches to the front of the forend, giving the shooter additional space to mount their bipod. A bag rider attachment provides better rear bag recoil management (an Enhanced Bag Rider is available for an additional fee).

MPA makes every effort to get the product to the customer as quickly as possible. These are hand-built precision instruments and not production components.

Steinel Ammunition Now Offers 500 Auto Max Loads for the Big Horn Armory AR500

The 350 grain JHP round is capable of achieving 2,225 fps from Big Horn Amory’s AR500 rifle.

Cody, Wyo. (February 2019) – Big Horn Armory (BHA), makers of big-bore firearms, announce a new premium ammunition manufacturer of the .500 Auto Max round: Steinel Ammunition Co. The Steinel 500 Auto Max 350 gr. JHP joins two other ammunition manufacturers in producing this powerful performance round capable of taking big game with just one well-placed shot.

“Another ammunition manufacturer joins the group producing 500 Auto Max factory loads. We are pleased that Steinel Ammunition Company has added 500 Auto Max loads to their lineup. They join Buffalo Bore and Underwood in producing ammo for the most powerful AR type rifle in existence, the AR500 by Big Horn Armory,” Greg Buchel, president of Big Horn Armory, said.

Big Horn Armory, a firearms company dedicated to the design and production of big bore guns, brought out their interpretation of the popular AR-15 style rifle in 2018: the AR500 in 500 Auto Max. The gas operated platform was developed based on a DPMS style .308 AR and BHA redirected the design from there. Built with precision machined 18” stainless steel barrel and a lightweight aluminum receiver and Adaptive Tactical EX Performance M-4 style high-impact polymer stock (collapsible and adjustable), the AR500 is ready for dangerous game. The AR500 adjustable gas block allows the user to run subsonic loads using a suppressor.

The 500 Auto Max round was originally developed by Big Horn Armory using a 500 S&W straight walled casing. The very versatile cartridge can handle anything from small to big game and makes an excellent breaching cartridge when used with the AR500 as a law enforcement CQC or duty rifle.

The new Steinel 500 Auto Max 350 gr. JHP is available online in a box of 20 rounds for $41. 99.

Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 Casings Used in New Snap Cap Training Rounds by FORG3D Solutions

Magnetic Freedom Training Rounds, featuring Shell Shock Technologies’ casings, are easier and safer to recover from the range floor.

Westport, Conn. (February 2019)Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that FORG3D Solutions has introduced its Freedom Training Rounds featuring Shell Shock Technologies’ revolutionary NAS3 casings.

FORG3D Solutions’ Freedom Training Rounds are great for firearms proficiency training. Shooters can use them for “ball and dummy drill,” at home dry-fire sessions or incorporated into current malfunction drills or skill tests. These snap cap rounds can help improve firearms skills and are easier and safer to recover from the range floor, either as a firearms instructor or during self-training.

The Freedom Training Rounds are made from US-made plastics and US-made NAS3 Shell Shock Technologies cases, designed and assembled by a US Veteran on Dillon Precision reloading machines. Available in 9mm caliber in high-visibility yellow, pink or patriot (red/white/blue) in quantities of 10, 100 or 1,000+. Quick and safe recovery with a magnetic pick-up tool makes it safer and easier for shooters to see and recover Freedom Training Rounds.

“We are truly excited and proud to have our casings be part of the magnetic Freedom Training Rounds launch from FORG3D Solutions. This is the first manufacturer that has taken our unique casing and applied it to the snap cap round,” said Craig Knight, CEO of Shell Shock Technologies.

About Shell Shock’s NAS3 Cases:

Shell Shock’s NAS3 9mm cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms. The cases offer greater corrosion resistance, tensile strength (2x stronger) and elasticity than brass. NAS3 cases will not split, chip, crack or grow (stretch) and are fully reloadable (using S3 Reload dies) and can be reloaded many more times than brass cases. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully by customers to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3 cases can be picked up with a magnet. The head can be colored for branding purposes and easy load identification.

NAS3 is “Best in Class” for maintaining consistent velocity between rounds. In an independent test performed by H.P. White Laboratory (a major munitions testing facility), rounds fired using NAS3 cases achieved a velocity standard deviation of 0.093 FPS (124-grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).

#LeaveMyMeatAloneCory

TGIF readers. We made it through another week but Some of you, in the Northeast, got clobbered with that front that rolled in. I hope you weren’t adversely impacted. So, lets have a good shoot the shit.

796379-13-20160117024305

Caught Lara Logan on Fox News Channel the other day. She makes me feel like Agent Kruger – I sat there thinking “fokin Krajst Boyki!”“of to wurk Boykis!” In case you’ve never heard of her, Lara is an accredited journalist and war correspondent that spent a considerable amount of time in Iraq and Afghanistan. She also came close to meeting her maker in Egypt. She definitely looks great in a plate carrier and clearly has more balls than Jim Acosta!

EWarren Cab Mtg

Well, as you all know, no one is working in Washington D.C. they’re all campaigning, so we the people are paying $250,000 a year (includes benefits) to watch these people campaign. I wanted to share the above picture with you because it’s what Elizabeth Warren’s cabinet meetings will look like should she win the White House in 2020.

Image result for cory booker spartacus

Senator Cory Booker, as you know, is a Vegan and he wants you to give up beef so it’ll help Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez deal with bovine flatulence.

The human body needs amino acids in order to synthesize the variety of proteins it needs; however, it can’t synthesize all of the amino acids that it needs, there are 9 (some say 7) it needs to intake from food sources and a well balanced diet requires consuming meats. So, I’ve started a Twitter hashtag #LeaveMyMeatAloneCory . if you like the occasional T-bone, ribs, ham stake, pork chops etc. Please let Cory know using #LeaveMyMeatAloneCory

Cortez

Well when Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez was asked why she opposed Amazon building its headquarters in NYC, A project that would have created 25,000 jobs with average salaries of $150,000 per year plus benefits from day one. She replied that she wanted to know from Amazon executives:

  1. What types of jobs are they?
  2. Will they be hiring locally or bring people in.
  3. How much will people be getting paid?

Apparently Amazon did not respond. So, (ROFLMAO) to celebrate her victory over Amazon, the Congresswoman, a Twitter champ, tweets

“Anything is possible,” “Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.”

This folks is what’s in Congress and the reason why shoot the shits are as beneficial as they are!

The shallow water navy also known as the United States Coast Guard is as distinguished as any service could be. They have saved countless lives, interdicted tons of illicit drugs and have played a major role in counter terrorism operations. So, what happened to Christopher Paul Hasson USCG Lt. Apparently along the way he self-identified as a white nationalist and dreamed of ways to “kill almost every last person on earth,” Hum, sounds like Venusian death rays to me, right up to the point authorities and media revealed some of his intended targets.

Screenshot 2019-02-21 19.13.29

Screenshot 2019-02-21 19.23.57

He might have just been pissed off! I did read that he was also an ex-Marine so there may have some op-amps that short-circuited. In any event I’m glad nobody was impacted by Hasson and a job well done to the FBI. Now watch the media try to spin Hasson into a Trump supporter!

Alright readers, remember that during a shoot the shit you can make any unsupported comment, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject altogether. Have a safe and relaxing weekend and spend some quality time with your buds and family.

Enhanced Technology and Design are Driving Adoption of Newest GLOCK Models by Law Enforcement

SMYRNA, Ga. – Feb 20, 2019 GLOCK, Inc. is proud to announce that its evolutionary changes in design are gaining interest and early adoption among law enforcement agencies throughout the United States.

In 2018, GLOCK introduced its newest generation of pistols, the Gen5.  A variation of the “M” pistols used by federal agencies, the 5th generation of pistols feature over twenty design enhancements. Among the features are a match-grade, GLOCK Marksman Barrel with a recessed target-style crown, tighter chamber specs and more aggressive rifling for increased accuracy.  Additionally, internal design changes in the Gen5 models result in a smoother trigger pull and improved trigger reset.

“The newest generation of GLOCK pistols demonstrate precisely engineered design enhancements that perform flawlessly to meet the demanding level of reliability, accuracy and durability required by those who go into harm’s way,” said GLOCK, Inc.

Among the long list of agencies to make the switch in recent months are Baltimore County Police, which transitioned from the FNS-40 to the GLOCK 17 Gen5, Ste. Genevieve Sheriff’s Department, which is replaced their Sig Sauer pistols with GLOCK 17 and 19 Gen5’s, the Lynnwood Police Department, which replaced their Sig Sauer pistols with GLOCK Gen5 models, and the Tennessee Department of Revenue, which is upgrading their Sig Sauer pistols with the GLOCK 45.

In October, 2018, GLOCK added the G45 to the lineup which incorporates the Gen5 features in a Crossover model featuring a compact-length slide and a full-size frame with a magazine capacity of 17+2.  In the first three months of availability, the G45 has exceeded sales expectations and continues to be adopted by agencies across the country.

Sightmark Congratulates Lithuania’s Top Competitor, Marius Kazanskis

Sightmark Congratulates Lithuania’s Top Competitor, Marius Kazanskis

(MANSFIELD, TEXAS) – Sightmark is pleased to congratulate sponsored competitive shooter Marius Kazanskis for becoming Lithuania’s Top Rifle Shooter for 2018. In December, Kazanskis was deemed the best after placing 1st in the Lithuanian Ranking 2018 – Rifle Semi-Auto Open division, a result over 4 ranked matches and a local season-closing match. Marius also placed 2nd in a PCC division match on Christmas Day.

“I am very proud to be sponsored by Sightmark because they are a growing company with great value and quality balance in their product,” Marius Kazanskis said, “I am very happy with my cooperation, communication and support that I get from them.”

In 2017, Marius asked for Sightmark’s support as part of his new project in the Baltic Region – Rifle/Carbine Competitions. Without Sightmark, Kazanskis says he could not be at the top where he is now. Since then, Marius has won major Lithuanian IPSC events in pistol-caliber carbine competitions.

For being the number one ranked Semi-Auto Open Rifle Shooter in Lithuania, Kazanskis was invited to represent his country in the Rifle World Championship 2019 in Sweden. A big honor in which he’s performed in many times before — 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2016 in European and World Handgun Championships.

YANKEE HILL MACHINE RENEWS TIER 3 SPONSORSHIP OF ASA

EASTHAMPTON, MA – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce that Yankee Hill Machine (YHM), a leading manufacturer of suppressors, AR-15 pattern firearms, and firearm accessories, is returning as a Tier 3 sponsor of ASA for 2019.

“YHM is committed to advancing private suppressor ownership, which is why we continue to support the ASA,” said Christopher Graham, Co-Owner of YHM. “The ASA is made up of individuals, lobbyists, subject matter experts, manufacturers and dealers from across the country with the singular goal of creating, supporting, and passing pro-suppressor legislation. No other group exists solely to advocate for advancing suppressor rights. For this reason, we choose to invest in and support the ASA.”

YHM is a 3rd generation family run business which is owned and operated by brothers Christopher and Kevin Graham. Since 2016, Christopher has served on ASA’s Board of Directors. In addition to their sponsorship and service on the ASA Board, YHM has been one of the leading proponents of pro-suppressor advocacy in New England, assisting in over a half dozen suppressor demonstrations for legislators and regulators in Massachusetts and its neighboring states.

“Through Christopher and Kevin’s leadership, YHM has emerged as one of the frontrunners in the fight to legalize suppressor ownership throughout the country,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “Our association is stronger because of YHM. Their willingness to donate their time and resources to host demonstrations that assist in the legislative process highlight YHM’s commitment to the cause. We are proud to have the opportunity to continue to work alongside YHM in our fight to expand suppressor rights across the country.”

ABOUT YANKEE HILL MACHINE (YHM)

Based in Easthampton, Massachusetts, YHM is known for its high-quality suppressors, firearms, and firearms accessories. Founded in an area of western Massachusetts known locally as “Yankee Hill”, YHM moved to their current location in 2017. To learn more about YHM, visit them online at www.YHM.net.

ABOUT THE AMERICAN SUPPRESSOR ASSOCIATION

The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide.

The ability of the American Suppressor Association to fight for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, 3 states have legalized suppressor ownership and 18 states have legalized suppressor hunting. Much of this would not have happened without your support. For more information on how you can join us in the fight to help protect and expand your right to own and use suppressors, visit www.AmericanSuppressorAssociation.com.

New Study: 17.25 million concealed handgun permits, biggest increases for women and minorities

 

The CPRC has just issued our newest annual report on the number of concealed handgun permits in the US.  A copy of the report is available for download here.  Some updated numbers are shown at the bottom of this post.  Past reports can be viewed here.  The executive summary is shown here:

Despite the expectations of many after the 2016 elections, the number of concealed handgun permits has again increased. In 2018, the number of concealed handgun permits soared to over 17.25 million – a 273% increase since 2007. 7.14% of American adults have permits. Unlike surveys that may be affected by people’s unwillingness to answer some personal questions, concealed handgun permit data is the only really “hard data” that we have on gun ownership across the United States. Still, an even larger number of people carry because in 14 states people don’t need a permit to carry in all or virtually all those states.

Among the findings of our report:

  • Last year, despite the common perception that growth in the number of permit holders would stop after the 2016 election, the number of permits grew by about 890,000.
  • Outside the restrictive states of California and New York, about 8.63% of the adult population has a permit.
  • In fifteen states, more than 10% of adults have permits, up from just eleven last year.
  • Alabama has the highest rate — 22.1%. Indiana is second with 17.9%, and South Dakota is a close third with 17.2%.
  • Four states now have over 1 million permit holders: Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
  • Another 14 states have adopted constitutional carry in all or almost all of their state, meaning that a permit is no longer required. However, because of these constitutional carry states, the nationwide growth in permits does not paint a full picture of the overall increase in concealed carry.
  • Permits continued to grow much faster for women and minorities. Between 2012 and 2018, the percent of women with permits grew 111% faster for women and the percent of blacks with permits grew 20% faster than for whites. Permits for Asians grew 29% faster than for whites.
  • Concealed handgun permit holders are extremely law-abiding. In Florida and Texas, permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at one-sixth of the rate at which police officers are convicted.

The report is available to be downloaded here.

NSSF Praises U.S. House Bipartisan Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act

NSSF The Firearms Industry Trade Association

Legislation Frees Funds for State Range Construction

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry trade association, praised the introduction of H.R. 1222, the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act of 2019 in the U.S House of Representatives. The bipartisan bill was authored by Reps. Ron Kind (D-Wis.) and Rob Bishop (R-Utah).

“This is crucial legislation that would provide state fish and game agencies more flexibility to use Pittman-Robertson excise taxes dollars raised from the sale of firearms and ammunition to enhance existing public shooting ranges and to build new ones to meet the growing need for additional places for target shooters to participate in their sport,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Public shooting ranges provide hunters a place to sight in rifles and shotguns before hunting seasons, for people to take firearm safety and hunter education courses and, for recreational target shooters to enjoy their sport. NSSF thanks Congressmen Kind and Bishop for recognizing the critical need and providing solutions to benefit recreational shooters and conservation.”

This legislation has been introduced in previous Congressional sessions, where it received overwhelming bipartisan support, but was never advanced to the president. The funds are derived from an existing excise taxes paid by firearms and ammunition manufacturers since 1937, with almost $12.1 billion raised for wildlife conservation supported by the sale of these products.

States are permitted to use some of those funds for hunter education courses and for public shooting ranges under a restrictive formula that has largely discouraged state agencies from building and enhancing public shooting ranges. The legislation would provide states greater flexibility on their ability to use Pittman-Robertson excise tax funds by increasing the cap of federal funds accrued for the creation and maintenance of shooting ranges from 75 to 90 percent. This means states could begin work on range facilities with 10 percent matching funds, instead of the current 25 percent. It would also enable excise funds to be made available and accrue for five years for land acquisition or range construction.

Target shooters are largely responsible for the funds derived through excise taxes from the sale of firearms and ammunition products. That money is directly responsible for habitat conservation, recreational shooting and wildlife management, making gun owners, hunters and manufacturers largest financial supporters of wildlife conservation throughout the United States. The development of new ranges will help encourage participation in hunting and the shooting sports, ensuring wildlife conservation funding through the Pittman-Robertson Act will continue for generations to come.

About NSSF

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 12,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.

This Dingbat Is No Puzzle. What is a Puzzle is What She’ll Come Up With Next !

T.G.I.F. readers! Hopefully you’ve had a nice Valentine’s Day and a productive week. In addition to recovering from Shot Show, I’m working on a couple of reviews so I got some range time this week – always a good thing. But, now it’s time for our weekly shoot the shit to help us cope with those stressors that make us think we have to discuss life with some jackass who’s  reason for studying psychology was solely so they could understand themselves. So, what’s a shoot the shit?

It’s a totally unstructured social interaction between individuals who may, or may not, know anything about the subject being discussed. During a shoot the shit participants can make any unsupported statement, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject altogether. There are no conversational protocols that must be followed, your group may be talking about some killer beer  when suddenly you decide to talk about someone’s bootay you found particularly interesting, let it rip.

So, let’s shoot the shit…

This week I received a video suggestion from my buddy Corn that had me laughing so damned hard I almost stopped breathing, it contrasts a martial artist with a normal person . So, here it is, I hope you enjoy it.

 

 

Boob of the week goes to New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a.k.a AOC, a.k.a. Dingbat.

Cortez

There are a number of things that should concern you about the Congresswoman,  but what blows me away is that she’s managed to garner 2 million followers on Twitter. Granted, some of those may be followers that would like to have their way with her, but for the most part they’re individuals who share her views. That should scare the crap out of you!

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez  has been in Congress since January 2019 and in that short period  she’s accomplished:

  1. Chased Amazon along with 25,000 jobs out of New York City. Readers, she actually thinks she did good. I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that Cuomo & de Blasio are going ape-shit. Can anyone be that stupid? Did the natural selection process fail her? Apparently she felt that N.Y.C.  had enough millionaires. So, N.Y.C. will no longer be Amazon’s East Coast Headquarters.
  2. Her other accomplishment is the Green New Deal. What is the Green New Deal say you? It’s a plan to transition the country completely away from fossil fuels and calls for 100% renewable energy in ten years, it calls for converting all buildings in the U.S. to renewable energy,  It calls for eliminating the internal combustion engine, it expresses a concern about methane gas from cow flatulence and bans air travel in lieu of rail service. Universal income whether you work or not – just ask Italy how that’s working out for their economy and national debt. This she claims will make lives better for people and save the planet, which according to her will be destroyed in 12 years. Can anyone be that stupid?

Let’s just list a couple of the impacts

  • Closing down oil production will collapse the U.S. economy and destroy millions of jobs. It would also collapse the global oil markets.
  • Transitioning to all electric vehicles requires smaller and lighter cars. Smaller lighter cars require making extensive use of polymers. Polymers are made from petroleum byproducts recovered, cracked or synthesized from refining crude oil. Think about all of the plastics and polymers that you have in your homes or interact with in on a daily basis. VASELINE (a.k.a petroleum jelly) would disappear for God’s sake, think about that impact. MAGPUL Industries gone, synthetic fabrics gone, carbon fiber gone, siding and insulating materials gone, asphalt gone etc., etc. on and on! The countryside would be littered with windmills and solar panels think about what that does to land utilization and agriculture.

If this weren’t so serious it would be utterly laughable, but you need to take Ocasio-Cortez   and her ideas seriously because the implications are horrendous.

Have a great weekend friends.  Relax but stay focused and keep your eyes on the ball. Spend some quality time with your buds and family.

REVISION CELEBRATES NERV CENTR POWER MANAGEMENT SOLUTION ADOPTION WITH KEY U.S. CUSTOMERS

Image result for Revision logo

Essex Junction, Vermont (February 13, 2019) – Revision Military—a world leader in integrated, soldier-worn power management solutions—has successfully supplied numerous Nerv Centr® power management systems to key customers in the U.S. Marine Corps and Air National Guard Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC).

“Revision’s Power division is a prime example of our unyielding commitment to meeting troop needs head on,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision. “If we see any opportunity to leverage our capabilities to improve warfighter equipment, in any capacity, we are going to pursue it relentlessly. The development of the Nerv Centr family of products—solutions designed to suit the real-world needs of troops on the ground, so they can count on longer-lasting energy reserves on extended and remote missions—fully embodies this pursuit. Revision’s power capabilities have grown significantly since we first staked out this territory in 2014, and we are poised to expand further with the recent acquisition of Protonex. The recent traction of the Nerv Centr line and this exciting partnership with the Air National Guard is a testament to our tenacious mindset, and reinforces all the work we’ve put in to get to where we are today.”

Revision was selected by the Air National Guard (ANG) to supply Nerv Centr power management solutions for their Battlefield Airman Kits, for use by Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC). Revision has delivered 652 kits, each of which includes a Nerv Centr SharePack® Power Management System, a Nerv Centr SoloPack™ Battery, an Enhanced Charger, and select cables.

This order by the Air National Guard builds on several recent successes for Revision’s Nerv Centr family of power management products. Especially noteworthy is Revision’s work with the U.S. Marine Corps to supply the energy needs for their Target Handoff System—a constellation of interconnected devices that provide Scout Observers, Joint Fires Observers, and JTACs with the ability to self-locate, acquire targets, and refine and relay coordinate data for target engagement. Revision’s SoloPack Batteries and Nerv Centr Chargers provide centralized power that has greatly exceeded expectations—powering the THS for upward of 20 hours, compared to the eight-hour threshold set by the program.

Collaboration with the Air National Guard for the Battlefield Airman Kits began two years ago, in response to JTAC instructors’ request for a higher-capacity alternative power solution with lower weight and less bulk. Revision worked closely with this group to understand their requirements, their equipment, and the integration specifications for their vest load outs. After trials with the Nerv Centr products, the ANG committed to outfitting all of their JTAC instructors across 15 squadrons in the U.S. Successful delivery of this order also included SharePack firmware improvements and the development of a new PRC 117G radio adapter. During this collaboration, the ANG also aided in the development of the user interface of the Nerv Centr mobile app—Revision’s first mobile application (available now in the Google Play store), designed to provide an intuitive interface for soldier-worn power system management, enhancing connectivity, device monitoring, and control over power reserves.

Crosstac’s ARCA Rail for the Ruger® Precision Rifle

 

This very versatile Ruger® Precision Rifle dedicated Arca-Swiss style rail will enhance your next precision rifle competition or hunting adventure with multiple mounting options

Loveland, Col. (February 2019) – Crosstac, the innovator behind tactical/shooting gear for the serious competitor to the beginner shooter, offers an ARCA rail solely dedicated to the very popular Ruger® Precision Rifle. The 16” rail with an M-LOK mounting system also features three Quick Detach (QD) holes for various sling positions.

The M-LOK Crosstac ARCA rail is designed specifically for Ruger® Precision rifles with an M-LOK handguard. It also fits the Ruger Precision Rimfire .22LR with the M-LOK attachment. Whether used for precision long range competition, long distance hunting or law enforcement sniper duty, the CNC machined, Type 3 hard anodized stainless steel Crosstac ARCA rail accepts bipods, tripods, barricade blocks (Crosstac ARCA blocks available too) and QD slings on the ARCA QD holes, eliminating the need for any other sling attachment system.

A numbered scale on the rail makes it quick and easy to adjust or reposition accessories from one competition stage to the next. The front ramp keeps the forend from hanging up on barricades. On what is normally the flat bottom of the ARCA rail, Crosstac has sand grooved it to alleviate any binding from dirt or debris.

“An ARCA rail really becomes an integral part of the rifle,” Bret Heidkamp, one of the founders and president of Crosstac and competitive shooter, said. “The fact that we have taken it to the next level with the sand grooved bottom and the laser etched scale are results from real-world use of this type of rail in competition. With the popularity and the affordability of the Ruger Precision Rifle, we knew at Crosstac that our ARCA rail would only enhance the shooter’s performance.”

The Crosstac ARCA blocks have grooves machined into them, providing positive traction and increased stability when positioning the rifle’s ARCA blocks on either side of any PRS barricade, yet the rifle releases easily when moved vertically from the barricade. The blocks also feature a QD mount in the base for sling tensioning (no additional parts needed). Additionally, the blocks have a machined “window” for versatility or to allow for a finger grab.

The concept behind the ARCA rail comes from the original mount for cameras developed by the Arca-Swiss company in the 1990’s. The Arca-Swiss mounting system fit on a camera and allowed for quick attach and detach from tripods. From this simple, but effective method of quickly attaching and detaching photography equipment, Crosstac’s ARCA rail and blocks add a new performance dimension to shooting the Ruger Precision Rifle.

The Crosstac Ruger Precision Rifle ARCA rail is 100 percent made in the USA at Crosstac and is available for $149.99 retail. The Crosstac ARCA blocks are also 100 percent made in the USA and available for $49.99.

Headquartered in Colorado, with an additional factory in Florida, Crosstac designs and manufactures innovative tactical/shooting gear featuring smarter features that provide enhanced accuracy, performance and an overall better shooting experience for the serious competitor to the beginner shooter. www.crosstac.com
