I purchased an HK VP9 a few months ago and absolutely love it. Currently I run some of the XTech Tactical VP9 +5 Mag Extenders and they’ve run flawlessly. Today XTech Tactical introduced their new Complete Stainless Steel VP9 / P30 Magazines. VP9 mags are notoriously hard to find and when you do they are usually priced around $40-45. These new mags should be even nicer than factory mags with a retail price of just $34.95 each. Check out the press release for more information below.

Mesa, AZ- XTech Tactical, makers of the adjustable angle ATG AR Grip and MTX VP9 & P30 magazine extensions announced today the release of their complete magazine line for the H&K VP9 & P30 9mm pistols. These are anything but industry standard aftermarket magazines. The development process took over two years, and when you handle the parts it shows.

XTech Tactical Complete HK VP9 P30 Magazine 1

First, each and every process, material, and even the packaging is US made. The magazine bodies are upgraded over factory to 310 Stainless Steel. After the stamping process, they are precision laser welded and then Teflon coated. The springs are Stainless Steel and were developed through engineered simulations vs. trial and error. The springs are pre-set so there is no break in and no change in strength over time. The magazines have been tested and abused, and are ready for any requirement of any global user. One more additional feature XTech Tactical added is an additional round indicator hole in the back for the 20th round when using the magazines with their MTX VP9, VP40 & P30 +5 Magazine Extender.

XTech Tactical Complete HK VP9 P30 Magazine 1

The magazines are available as both 15rd (MSRP $34.95) and a 20rd combo with their MTX extender ($59.95).

Mesa, AZ, August 23, 2016 – XTECH Tactical, manufacturer of the Advanced Tactical Grip is today introducing two new products for the HK VP9 pistol. First up is the new 5rd Magazine Extender for VP9 magazines. The XTECH Tactical mag extender adds an additional 5 round capacity to the VP9 magazine for a 20 round total. The mag extender is super simple to install with absolutely no tools needed.

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales and Marketing for XTECH Tactical explains how they have eliminated reliability concerns that plague many other mag extenders.

“The biggest thing for function is that we have a 100% consistent ID within the extender portion AND the  ID within the extender is less than the ID of the magazine.  The benefit here is that it is impossible for the extender to cause a Fail to Feed which is a known issue in extenders.”

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

The XTECH Tactical VP9 5rd Mag Extender is now shipping with an MSRP of $29.95 with FREE SHIPPING through the end of August.  http://www.xtechtactical.com/mtx-vp9p30-5-magazine-extender-with-spring/  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Additionally, XTECH Tactical will be offering complete XTECH Tactical VP9 magazines with and without the Mag Extender. The XTECH Tactical VP9 magazine will feature a 310 Stainless Steel body vs H&K’s Spring Steel body. It will also feature an extra round indicator hole to show the 20th round as shown in the photo below.

XTECH VP9 Mag 20 round 2

The XTECH Tactical 20 and 15 Round VP9 magazines will start shipping early this fall. The 20 Round magazine MSRP is $59.95 and the 15 Round magazine is $34.95.  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

I’ve always shot my Glocks a lot but ever since I built my Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR I’ve been shooting them even more. Recently I had the opportunity to add the Rainier Arms MARS (Magazine Advanced Release System) ambi mag release in my G17. If you’re thinking….”I shoot right handed so I don’t need an ambi mag release” keep reading.

Rainier Arms MARS ambi mag release glock 1

Rainier Arms MARS ambi mag release glock

Typically ambi controls are designed to benefit left hand shooters but this ambi mag release was actually designed to help right hand shooters. On a Glock, many right handed shooters have to break their grip to reach their thumb far enough to activate the standard mag release consistently. Left handed Glock shooters typically use their Index or Middle finger to use the mag release which is actually better as it does not require that you change your grip on the gun.

The MARS fixes this by adding an ambi mag release on the right side so right handed shooters can now use their Index or Middle finger to release the magazine. They have also extended the mag release button on the left side making it even easier for left handed shooters to access with their Index or Middle finger.

Whether you shoot predominantly Left OR Right hand doesn’t matter with the Rainier Arms MARS. Its a great upgrade for any Glock pistol shooter and has functioned flawlessly in my G17. Rainier Arms has just made these available for sale on their website and are offering them at an introductory price. Regular price is $66.45 but the Intro Price is just $59.95. If you happen to be a Rainier Arms APEX member, your price is just $49.95. Head on over to www.RainierArms.com to snag one at the intro pricing.

I’ve got to admit, I’ve always been a sucker for a nice watch, but I’m not talking about your super expensive, only wear 5 times a year type watches. I’m a sucker for a watch I can wear every day, all day and has some cool, useful features. That’s why I don’t own a ton of watches. Most watches are lacking in function, not durable enough for daily use and too expensive because of some brand name. Every once in a while I’ll run across a new watch that meets my requirements and I just have to have it, such as the new AR-15 Inspired watch called the Ambush Digital Analog Watch from Smith & Bradley.

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 1

Smith & Bradley is a well known watch maker that makes some unique watches. Their new Ambush Digital Analog watch is really cool, built for every day use and features some subtle touches that were inspired by my favorite rifle, the AR-15. The bezel is designed to look similar to a 1913 picatinny rail. The Hour Hand has a red dot on the end and the Minute Hand has a hole like an AR-15 rear sight aperture. Once every hour these two hands line up like a front and rear sight. But that’s not where the “coolness” stops.

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 2

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 4

The Ambush is a combination Analog and Digital watch that allows you to have have dual time zones, chronograph, alarm, 100 Meter WR and a built in Compass as well. The digital portion has a Blue backlight and the hour and minute hands move out of the way during the digital function so they don’t block any of the digital windows. During compass mode, the Minute Hand points to true North and the Hour Hand shows your current heading. You can watch the video below.

Smith Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch 3

The Ambush is made of very high quality components and is very well thought out. The cool part is you can get in on these early like I am going to and save some money. Smith & Bradley have mastered the CrowdFunding marketing with 2 successful KickStarter campaigns already and a very good reputation for making an awesome watch. Just a few days into their current KickStarter campaign for the Ambush Digital Analog Watch and they are already 66% funded and will undoubtedly blow past their $40,000 goal quickly. By supporting the KickStarter campaign and getting in now you will save over $200 off of what will be the retail price once the campaign is over.

Every so often we’ll run across an item that, while it may not be an AR-15 related product, merits posting about on the website. One of our friends in the industry, Impact Weapons Components, makes a ton of products for different popular weapon platforms. Lately they’ve created some really cool products for the FN SCAR series of rifles. As with most rifles, the manufacturer never really thinks through the design 100% which leaves some room for improvement. If you’re familiar with the FN SCAR you’ll know that they don’t come with any QD Sling Mounts anywhere on the gun. Seems kind of odd for such a pricey rifle. Instead they have 3 small loops to attach hooks or shackles to which isn’t always preferred. IWC has come up with a pretty slick solution to this problem.

Basically they have machined very small rotation limited QD Sling Mounts out of solid 303 Stainless Steel that fit right into the existing sling loops and lock in place. This now gives you easy to access QD Sling Mounts for any FN SCAR and opens up your options when picking a sling for your rifle. They even thought to make one for you lefties that mounts on the right side of the rifle as well. 

IWC SCAR QD Sling Mount 2

IWC SCAR QD Sling Mount 2

The SCAR QD Sling Mounts are Black Melonite coated as shown in the image below which gives them excellent wear and corrosion resistance. Obviously not everyone has an FN SCAR and not every FN SCAR owner will feel the need to upgrade to QD Sling Mounts but if you’re one that has wished there was a high quality (not cheap aluminum) option to fix this issue, this is the product you’ve been waiting for.

IWC SCAR QD Sling Mount 2

These new SCAR QD Sling Mounts cost less than $35 and are now available for purchase at www.ImpactWeaponsComponents.com. As with most products on IWC’s website, use the code “ar15news” at checkout to save 5%. GeT sOmE!!
