We previously shared some information regarding Hogue’s new Ruber OverMolded AR stocks and G-10 Trigger Guards. Just today they debuted their new Hogue Gear Double Rifle Bags and these things are nice! These bags seem to be very well thought out, are totally large enough to hold most firearms without disassembling them at all and have tons of storage options. Take a look at the pics and details from Hogue below.
Hogue, Inc. is proud to announce the latest edition to their expanded Hogue Gear® line. What we have created is a solution to the problem facing three gun shooters and armed professionals the world over: too much gear to carry in existing shooting cases. Our new rifle bags are designed to accommodate the three gun shooter or the highly equipped traveler equally well.
With an exterior construction of 1000D Cordura and Ballistic Nylon, these bags will take a beating and last for years. Padded, suede lined compartments inside will protect your investments and deliver functioning firearms to your destination time and time again. Strong YKK zippers are incredibly resistant to breaking or derailing. Multiple D-Ring locations insure you can attach the sling wherever you want to get the center of gravity where you need it, muzzle up or down. Ample storage in front pockets insure that if you can carry it, you can fit it. Ample padding on the sling and handles insure that you’ll be carrying it comfortably.
Our 46” Double Rifle Bag will hold two 46” long firearms and the gear that goes with them. Our 52” Double Rifle Bag will hold two 52” long firearms and even more gear. Both bags come in black or green. MSRP 259.95 (46”) & 269.95(52”)

Now, I’m not sure how many of you guys will think this new Trigger and Hammer Jig is cool but I’m kind of an AR Nerd and am all about stuff like this. The Strike Industries Trigger and Hammer Jig is a skeletonized block that represents the Fire Control Pocket of an AR-15 lower. It will accommodate an AR-15 Trigger and Hammer Assembly, Safety Selector and Pistol Grip. I can already think of multiple scenarios where this would be an awesome tool to have.
For myself, it would have been a great tool years ago when I was learning how to build AR’s. Being able to see exactly how an AR-15 trigger works, how the installation should look, etc. would have been a really nice tool.
From a retailers point of view this could be an invaluable tool to have in the showroom to let people try out different triggers that are offered. I’ve written a lot of articles about new trigger groups that are available and one thing everyone says is, “I wish I could try it before I by it.”. By having this available in a showroom the Joe Blow’s Gun Shop would be able to let customers try out different trigger upgrades without having a bunch of assembled lowers sitting around. This jig even has a built in plastic block that allows you to dry-fire the trigger without damaging the Hammer or Jig.
Another way the Trigger and Hammer Jig could come in handy is for those of us who do our own DIY Trigger Jobs. With a jig like this you will be able to see how the Trigger and Hammer are working together and make and educated adjustment that will hopefully make fine tuning your AR-15 trigger a breeze. You can also put the jig in a vice and measure trigger pull easily as well.
I’m sure I could come up with other useful ideas for this product but the point is, for an AR owner, this is pretty cool. The AR-15 Trigger and Hammer Jig is available for purchase right now for just $39.95 from www.StrikeIndustries.com.
Have you been wanting to upgrade the plastic “Glacier Guard” hand guards on your AR but don’t want to add a bunch of weight and don’t want to go with another plastic hand guard? ERGO Grips might have the perfect solution for you. They just introduced their new UltraLight Z KeyMod Drop-In rail. It is a 2-piece design that mounts in place of the standard hand guards without any disassembly. The new UltraLight Z KeyMod rail is machined from 6-series Aluminum and comes in a full size model as well as a slim model that doesn’t sit as low below the barrel. You’ll find KeyMod slots at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and a full picatinny section at 12 0′clock. The UltraLight part of the name comes from the 5.6 ounce weight which is lighter than say a Magpul MOE carbine length handguard which is polymer. These are available for purchase now in Matte Black (hard coat anodized) or in Dark Earth or OD Cerakote. Purchase at the links below.
Not sure how long this has been going on but my buddy Richard just gave me a heads up that BCM (Bravo Company Mfg) has some pretty sweet incentives to buy a BCM Upper. As many of you are already aware, BCM make some of the most sought after rifles and uppers out there. However, the market is slow right now and lots of companies are getting creative to bring prospective buyers their way. Usually BCM uppers do not include a BCG or Charging Handle. Typically that is an extra couple hundred dollars that you have to spend but right now, ALL BCM uppers are on sale and will come with a FREE BCM M16 BCG. However, the sweet spot in the lineup is the 16″ uppers which will also come with an additional FREE upgrade to a BCM MOD 0 Compensator. Basically all you need to do is add a charging handle and you’re all set. With over 100 different upper options all on sale, take your pick over at www.BravoCompanyUSA.com.
Geissele rails are one of those things where its hard to explain how awesome they are until you’ve used one. The quality and craftsmanship is second to none and, just like their triggers, are worth every penny. If you’ve been wanting to add an awesome Geissele rail to your rifle but have had a hard time ponying up nearly $300 for one, now’s your chance to snag one cheaper than you would pay for a lesser quality rail. Geissele just put some SMR MK2 13″ rails back in-stock and they are on sale for just $195. You can upgrade to the DDC (Desert Dirt Color) for an additional $25. Plus you get a free swag pack with each purchase. I have no idea how long this pricing will last so head on over to www.Geissele.com and snag as many as you can.
CMT Tactical has made a really great name for themselves with their great billet AR-15 upper and lower receivers and now they are coming out with their own line of complete uppers. Instead of just doing the typical AR upper, CMT Tactical is doing something pretty cool by offering a 20″ Predator Marksman Rifle upper as the first of many complete uppers.
The PMR upper includes a CMT Tactical UPUR-4 Slick Side billet upper receiver, 20″ 5.56 rifle length barrel, 15″ Samson Evolution rail, Low Profile Gas Block, BCM Gunfighter charging handle and a CMT M16 BCG. CMT Tactical also puts there money where there mouth is with an MOA accuracy guarantee.
This complete upper would be great for those who are looking to rid the neighborhood of Coyotes or Bad Guys. At just $785, the price for this upper is very reasonable. You can also request the upper be built with a Dust Cover and Forward Assist for just $60 more. For more information or to purchase head on over to www.CMTTactical.com.
Our friends at Ballistic Advantage make some pretty sweet AR Barrels. I just noticed that all of their 5.45×39 barrels are on sale through the end of the month. 5.45×39 is a round used in Russian weapons such as the AK74 but recently gained popularity in the AR market due to its inexpensive prices. Unfortunately the least expensive version of 5.45×39 ammunition, 7N6, was banned from import but you can still find standard 5.45×39 ammunition for just over $.20 per round. Ballistic Advantage offers 16 different 5.45×39 barrels including 7.5″, 10.5″, 14.5″, 16″, 18″ SPR, 20″ DMR and more of different barrel contours. All barrels have a QPQ corrosion resistant coating and include a Wolf Extra Power Hammer Spring. This is one of, if not the largest selection of 5.45×39 barrels I’ve seen and they are ALL on sale right now for just $150 each. If you’re like me and stocked up on 5.45×39 ammo before the ban happened or just want to build something a bit different, now is a great time to do it at www.BallisticAdvantage.com.
Most of you have probably heard of Dustin Ellermann. Dustin not only was the Grand Prize Winner of Season 3 on Top Shot, he’s also the director of Camp His Way and has the reputation as one of the nicest all around guys you’ll meet.

The sale of these Dust Covers as well as other products on his website go towards helping fund Camp His Way.

Radical Firearms has teamed up with Seekins Precision to create the new “Radical Rail” which to me looks like a hybrid of the MCSRv2 KeyMod rail and a BAR quad rail. I’m really digging the looks. You basically have a full length 12 0′clock rail and shorter rail sections at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with KeyMod filling the rest of the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock surface. It definitely looks great. The internal diameter is large enough to easily accommodate most suppressors or muzzle devices such as the Noveske KX3, PWS CQB comp, etc. Plus you know if Seekins Precision made it, its good to go. Check out the pictures below. You can purchase the 15″ version now at www.RadicalFirearms.com.
The Radical Rail System offers a larger inside diameter designed to accommodate your suppressor or for those that like the feel of a full sized quad rail. At 1.8” inside diameter your suppressor easily fits inside and the cutouts on the rail aid in rapid cooling. The Radical Rail System features anti-rotation tabs, built in non-rotating QD sling mounts, Key-mod rails that allow you to run without rail covers, allows any accessories and is hard anodize coated and super awesome if we say so ourselves. The Radical Rail is available in three different lengths, 9”(13.1oz), 13”(18.6oz) and 15”(21.2oz). Installation is a breeze using the standard USGI barrel nut wrench and ships with all mounting hardware and shims for proper barrel nut alignment.. (This is a special Rail developed by Radical Firearms and Seekins Precision and is the exclusive rail used by OSS Mission Suppressors).
