The Redi-Catch – An Old Product I’ve Never Seen Before

Posted on May 11th, 2015 by ar15news

Every so often I run across a product that to me seems new but in reality its one I missed a long time ago and just didn’t know it existed. Last month, RECOIL published an online review of the Redi-Catch by Boonie Packer which seemed like a really cool new product but apparently its been around for some time. It allows you to lock back your bolt using the mag release button like the AXTS A-DAC system. If you want AXTS’ A-DAC system you have to buy a specific lower from a company that has paid to use that system. With the Redi-Catch you can virtually retrofit any AR lower to do the same thing using only a different magazine catch bar and an “S” shaped piece of Spring Wire.

I’ve said it probably 100 times before but its probably worth saying again, “I couldn’t care less about an ambi bolt release” from a right handed shooters perspective. When I insert a mag, I slap the paddle with my left hand and the bolt goes home like it should. However, I find a ton of value in the idea of an ambi Bolt HOLD for clearing malfunctions, etc. I really have no need to lock the bolt back while shooting unless I am clearing a malfunction. With an ambi Bolt HOLD a right hand shooter can keep their shooting hand in its firing position. The Redi-Catch covers two steps to clearing a malfunction all in one. By depressing the mag release you are dropping the mag and able to lock the bolt back at the same tim reducing the overall time it takes to clear that malfunction and get back into shooting steel…or bad guys, just depends on the activities for the day. 

The Redi-Catch can be purchased for just $34.95 on www.Redi-Mag.com

Over the weekend my friends from LANTAC sent me some pics from a video they’re currently working on which features the much anticipated LANTAC BMD, aka the Blast Mitigation Device. The BMD slides over and locks onto the LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake to redirect the blast. If you’ve seen any of the previous LANTAC videos you know that they feature amazing high speed footage and these action shots of the BMD are absolutely amazing. You can really see how well it redirects the blast forward of the shooter while still getting some of the benefits of the Dragon brake underneath through the use of vents and holes above the Dragon’s vertical ports. 

I’m a huge fan of the LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake and well…basically anything LANTAC has made so far. Really looking forward to giving the BMD once it comes out. Until then, we’ll just have to drool over these awesome pics below. Look for the full HD video to come soon.

First is a shot of the blast from a LANTAC Dragon WITHOUT the BMD in place.

These next few shots show the BMD in action on a couple of different ARs. You can easily see that it makes quite a difference in reducing the side blast.

Initial Impressions – SCALARWORKS LDM/MICRO Mount

Posted on May 9th, 2015 by ar15news

A while back I helped introduce the SCALARWORKS LDM/Micro mount for Aimpoint T-1/H-1 red dots. They have been a very popular mount since then and now I’m excited to actually get to try one out for myself. I’ve had the Absolute Co-Witness mount on my SBR for about a week now and wanted to give my initial impressions with a long term review down the road.

The LDM/Micro mount was designed to be a low profile and light weight QD mount. The Absolute Co-Witness mount weighs just 1.25 ounces which is extremely impressive, especially for a QD mount. You can immediately tell when holding it that its quite a bit lighter than most mounts. For instance one of my other favorites, the ADM Micro Mount weighs 3.7 ounces (according to the ADM website) which is about 3 times what the SCALARWORKS LDM/Micro mount weighs.

The fit and finish on the LDM/Micro mount was also very nice. No sharp points or inconsistent anodizing at all. Just a very clean, high quality look. Another thing I noticed was that the anodizing seemed to match up color wise to my Aimpoint T-1 which at a quick glance makes it look like a one-piece Optic/Mount setup. The design itself I think is very attractive.

Scalarworks LDM Micro Mount 1

Installation is very simple. The QD wheel on the LDM/Micro mount features very positive clicks as you turn it that help lock it in place not allowing it to unwind by itself. It also makes it extremely easy to install or remove if needed. Once tightened down by hand it is extremely solid and has zero wobble or movement to it.

Scalarworks LDM Micro Mount 1

The LDM/Micro mount uses a telescoping guided clamp that is the entire length of the mount which should help it hold zero very well and is something they talk about in their marketing. This is one feature I have not had any time to test out but will very soon. Just a matter of shooting a group, removing the mount, re-installing the mount and shooting another group, repeat!

Scalarworks LDM Micro Mount 1

So my initial impressions are very good. I am looking forward to using the LDM/Micro mount full time on my SBR this year. Pricing on the SCALARWORKS LDM/Micro mount is a bit higher than some of the other mounts on the market but I think the quality and lightweight/low drag aspect of it makes up for that very fast.

One thing to note is that the LDM/Micro mount does not come with screws and requires that you use your “factory” screws. If you are like me and bought a T-1 with something other than the factory low mount you will probably need different screws. My T-1 came with the Factory LRP QD mount which has really long screws. Thankfully I had some screws from a different mount that I was able to use. This is not a problem, just something to keep in mind, when purchasing you might want to contact Aimpoint to purchase a new set of screws.

It just so happens that the same week SCALARWORKS sent me my mount, they also sent Rainier Arms a shipment of both Absolute Co-Witness and Lower 1/3 Co-Witness mounts. If you’re looking for a great place to purchase one from, head on over to www.RainierArms.com.

Magpul MBUS PRO LR Adjustable Rear Sight On Sale

VF Gunrunners is offering a deal on the Magpul MBUS PRO LR which has a built in elevation adjustment wheel with preset detents at 50 meter increments all the way out to 600 meters. As always, buying a rear sight is always more expensive than buying a front sight…just because. Normal retail on this sight is $129.95 but the sale price right now is $98.95 with FREE SHIPPING. I don’t know about you but I really appreciate companies that offer free shipping on stuff. It takes the guess work out of “Am I really getting a good deal?”. While you’re there you can also pick up a front sight too.
