**Press Release**

Designed to teach the thumbs forward grip, XTech Tactical releases the PTG (Pistol Training Gloves)

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves

Mesa, AZ- XTech Tactical, makers of the adjustable angle ATG AR Grip and their VP9 & P30 magazines and extensions announced today the release of their PTG (Pistol Training Gloves). The patent pending gloves use hook and loop to reinforce the “thumbs forward grip”.  

Check out this quick video!

The Pistol Training Glove, or PTG from XTech Tactical teaches & reinforces the “thumbs forward” grip technique used by military, law enforcement, and professional shooters. With its grip interlock technology, the PTG’s hook and loop fasteners engage only when your hands are in the correct position.  The use of this training tool will develop habits and muscle memory that build shooting skills and confidence.

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves 3

The gloves are breathable, comfortable and made from high end materials. They come in a full range of sizes ranging from XS-L to meet almost any trainee’s needs. The gloves are fully ambidextrous and address a problem we can all relate to. When introducing a beginner pistol shooter to the thumbs forward grip it is often quickly forgotten. And without the instructor by the trainee’s side and prior to muscle memory being established, the trainee becomes unsure of themselves.  Also, in a training environment when handling a live weapon for the first time the trainee often forgets the grip and the instructor is forced to correct them, which often requires physical contact.  This can create a dangerous situation but at a minimum affects the confidence of the trainee.  With the gloves, you will find the grip will no longer need to be a major focus of training and they assist in building confidence and a more enjoyable experience!

XTECH Tactical PTG Pistol Training Gloves

The gloves are simple to use and are an excellent tool in your range bag no matter if you are a beginner, instructor, or just act as a 2nd Amendment Ambassador and introducing others to shooting pistols!

MSRP is $34.95. They can be purchased at www.xtechtactical.com. Dealer pricing, and special NRA instructor pricing is available.  Dealer and Instructor inquiries please contact jeremy@xtechtactical.com

Pantheon Arms is well known for their awesome upgrades to the Dolos Quick Change Barrel System and now they’ve introduced a brand new product called the Kentri Short Buffer System for AR-15s that will work with both rifle caliber and pistol caliber builds. This should be perfect for one of those super compact AR Pistol “Truck Gun” “Backpack Gun” Builds.

Dolos KENTRI AR15 Short Buffer System

The new Kentri Short Buffer System is just 3.5″ long and features a floating guide rod to keep everything aligned in the buffer, doesn’t require a proprietary BCG,  supports the SB Tactical Braces and Shockwave Blade and  at just $55 is less than 1/3 the price of most other Short Buffer Systems on the market. 

So far, after a quick Google search, it looks like Vision Defense LLC (they’re the ones who tagged me on Instagram about this new product) is the only company to have these instock  and listed on their website so you might want to check them out. They’re listed at $55.

ETS Group introduced their C.A.M. Pistol Magazine Loader a few months ago and is now introducing their new Universal C.A.M. Rifle Magazine Loader. The Universal C.A.M. Rifle Magazine Loader works very similar to how their Pistol Magazine Loader works. Simply attach the loader to the mag, pick up the ammo with the loader and then use the plunger to push the rounds into the mag. There are lots of mag loaders out there but most are much larger and the C.A.M. has a very impressive list of Mags and Calibers that it can load. Take a look at the details and video below.

Tyrant Designs has continued to rapidly grow their line of AR15 grips with the addition of their new HALO Series HandStop. The HALO Series HandStop shares similar curves and style as the HALO MiniVert foregrip but with a shorter body. It also is compatible with both KeyMod and MLOK….just swap the mounting hardware and you can use it on whichever rail system you want. Just like the HALO MiniVert, the HALO Series HandStop is made completely out of aluminum and has had all of the edges chamfered for a very comfortable feeling in your hand.

In case you missed it (like I did 🙂 ), Forward Controls just released their new EMR-A which stands for Extended Mag Release – Ambi. The EMR-A comes in two different lengths and replaces your standard magazine catch. The EMR-A has an extended lever that now allows you to easily drop the mag from either side of the rifle. It can be used with your standard mag release button or you can upgrade to the Forward Controls mag release buttons. Check out the pictures and details below then head on over to www.ForwardControlsDesign.com to pick one up for yourself. 

Forward Controls EMR-A 1

Forward Controls EMR-A 1

EMR-A is a long in development ambidextrous magazine release for .223 and .308 AR receivers.  Original concept and design was complete in 2015.  After numerous changes to the mag catch geometry and lever shapes,  final design was made into working prototypes in 2017, and first shown in public at Cola Warrior West III.

EMR-A’s an ergonomic ambidextrous magazine release.  The placement of its lever is well thought out to closely mirror the magazine release button on the right side.  The portion immediately below the bolt catch’s lower paddle has a lower profile to avoid interference, heretofore a common drawback of popular ambidextrous mag catches, it is also left smooth.  The serrated length of the lever is split into a shallow V shaped serrations (80%) that conform to the curvature of the user’s finger, and straight serrations (20%) that form a natural index point, and provide additional traction.  We refer to the design as Multi-faceted Control Surface, the difference MCS makes has to be felt to be fully appreciated.

Two lever options are available.  Standard and Extended Reach (about 0.09″ longer than standard).  Force amplification achieved from a lever means the extended reach lever is easier to reach, it’s also easier to press than the standard lever.  For users with small hands or shorter fingers, the extended reach lever makes the EMR-A a joy to use.  For duty and defense ARs, we recommend the standard lever.

A 10.9lb rated magazine catch spring is included with each EMR-A.  We’ve long considered the standard magazine catch spring to be rather weak (rated at 6.85lb), accidental / unintended mag drops can take place if a user slings his weapon, and has gear and pouches on the vest.  A stiffer mag catch spring mitigates these risks, thus it is an integral part in the EMR-A package.

EMR-A is available as a part of bundled products (please see drop down menus for options).  EMR-A’s catch is made from CNC machined 4140 steel and black nitride coated, its lever is 7075 aluminum and Type 3 hard coat anodized.  The roll pin has a shear strength of 800lbs.

Notes:
– EMR-A’s lever pivots on the receiver.
– EMR-A needs to be removed before installing / removing the trigger.  EMR-A is installed and removed in the same manner as a factory mag catch.
– Please wear eye protection while installing EMR, EMR-C, and EMR-A with the 10.9lb mag catch spring!

Incompatibilities:
– Geissele’s Maritime Bolt Catch.  Material from either the top edge of EMR-A’s lever, or the bottom edge of Maritime Bolt Catch’s lower paddle may need to be removed for both to work together.  The close proximity of these two control surfaces makes this combination less than ideal.
– KNS anti-rotation trigger/hammer pins, the connecting bar will interfere with the EMR-A’s operation.
– Battery assist device levers.
– Armalite AR10B (AR10B uses modified M14 magazines)

Tyrant Designs CNC. Coming off an impressive product launch that sold out everywhere within 72 hours, Tyrant has now released the MiniVert in Red, Grey and Blue. The early reviews have come back very positive, with the guys at Tyrant already shifting their focus onto their upcoming Hand Stop.

Its not often that I get a chance to publish a press release for a new product after actually having personal hands on experience with it. However, that is the case with the new Tyrant Designs HALO MiniVert ForeGrip. I have one, have it mounted on one of my SBRs and I can say, it’s awesome!

Tyrant CNC MiniVert 2

They obviously took a lot of time to get the shape of the all metal grip just perfect because it actually feels great in the hand. It also is easy to swap between MLOK and KeyMod by simply swapping out the screws and mounting hardware (you can save yourself $3 if you only want one set of hardware). Initially Rainier Arms got an exclusive intro price on the new HALO MiniVert ForeGrip but they sold out in just 24 hours. Thankfully Tyrant Designs, the maker of the new HALO MiniVert ForeGrip, has some left in stock at the special intro price which you can purchase at the link below. You can also read the new product press release below.

HALO MiniVert Grip (Black)

Tyrant Designs Logo

 

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips has just announced their release of the new HALO Series MiniVert, a vertical forward grip. With dimensions slightly smaller than the average AR-15 vert grip, the MiniVert sports an aggressive looking knurl and well thought out ergonomics. Coupled with the ability to fit directly to MLOK and Keymod rail systems this little grip packs a big punch. With an overall length just shy of 3 inches, Tyrant instead utilized an elongated lip at the bottom allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind or resting the finger the traditional way.

Tyrant Designs MiniVert ForeGrip 1

“With all of the positive feedback we have received from reviewers, dealers and social media, we are extremely excited to announce the official release of our HALO Series MiniVert! This concept took months of designing and field testing to make it as comfortable as possible while maintaining our well known aggressive styling. It truly is a vertical grip that can be used in all situations on various platforms to heighten the performance of the operator. We are pleased with how it came out and look forward to seeing it on AR’s everywhere. ”

If you still think Geissele only makes amazing triggers, you need to start thinking differently about Geissele. They have and still do make some of the best rails on the market but over that past few years they have added things like Armorers Tools, Optic Mounts, Charging Handles and now … the Maritime Bolt Catch. Think of the Maritime Bolt Catch as a bolt catch with a larger surface area and more aggressive texture. What this does that other aftermarket bolt catch’s don’t is it extends the controls closer to the index finger of a left handed shooter so they can manipulate the bolt catch with their index finger without taking their hand off the grip.  

Geissele Automatics Maritime Bolt Catch 1

“The Geissele Maritime Bolt Catch is designed with the warfighter in mind and will work with any lower receiver designed to accept a mil-spec M16/M4 Carbine bolt catch. The increased surface area promotes ease of function when locking back the bolt or releasing the bolt after a magazine change. In addition, the extended controls add an increased functionality for left handed shooters who no longer have to break their grip to manipulate the bolt catch. Left handed shooters can easily reach the controls using the index finger of their left hand making magazine changes and locking the bolt back much more fast and efficient. Aggressive checkering covers the surface of the levers giving the Geissele Maritime Bolt Catch a textured surface that enables positive feedback to the shooters hand when being used with gloves or at night. Manufactured from properly heat treated 8620 steel and manganese phosphate coated, the Geissele Maritime Bolt Catch is intended to serve as an enhanced mil-spec replacement and assist in giving our warfighters overmatch capability with the M16/M4 carbine platform.”

Geissele Automatics Maritime Bolt Catch 1

Whether you’re a lefty or righty, there are benefits to be had here and coming from Geissele you know it will be top notch quality. Thankfully the price is extremely competitive with other aftermarket bolt catch’s with an MSRP of just $29. I’ve ordered a couple to try out and you can too at www.Geissele.com.

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). They can be purchased at www.xtechtactical.com and they are offering free shipping on the magazines for a limited time to celebrate their release.

Midwest Industries just announced their new Blast Can muzzle device and I’ve got to say, it looks pretty nice. It is 1.2″ wide and appears to be somewhere around 3″ long. The 1.2″ outside diameter means it will fit underneath a large number of rail systems which is a very popular setup. The fluting along the sides gives it a nicer look as well. The other nice part is that everyone should be able to afford one with an MSPR at just $34.95.
