New Product: Wilson Combat Vickers Elite Battlesight for H&K Pistols

This will be short and sweet. We’ve already done a review on the Vickers Elite Battlesights here from back in the day when they were first released for Glock pistols. Now there are front/rears available that are compatible with Heckler and Koch VP9, P30SK, P30L, P30, HK45, HK45C, and HK45C Tactical models. Although I liked the sight picture that the Heinie sights I had on my Read More →

Heirloom Precision’s Gold Line Front Sight

I had all but quit shooting my first .45. It was my first 1911—naturally, a Colt Series 70. It was a gun that I customized gradually throughout college when I had the money. Most of the work was done by Novak’s, but it took 3 trips to get everything done I wanted done because…well…I was broke in college. I didn’t have the money to do Read More →

Product Review: Streamlight TLR-1HL, TLR-6 and Protac Rail Mount Series Lights

  I never used to understand the benefits of pistol-mounted lights. I should say that I understood them, but I had so many lights already I had trouble justifying any more. My house is basically a home for wayward flashlights. I even spent some time practicing using handheld lights with my nightstand guns in the past and I guess because it never caused me a ton Read More →

Spec’ing Out a Suppressed Pistol (Featuring ROBAR, SilencerCo)

Exploding in Popularity Suppressors are on the rise in the U.S.— it’s undeniable. From 2010 to 2015, the amount of legally owned suppressors in civilian hands rose from roughly 285,000 to more than 790,000. Considering they’ve been legal for a lot longer than five years, that kind of data bears out the fact that silencers/ suppressors/ whatever you want to call them are exploding in popularity (bad Read More →

AR Review: Forward Controls Design EMR & EMR-C Mag Releases

I recently received the Forward Controls Design EMR and EMR-C and have had a chance to briefly use each model. Both of these are drop in replacements for your standard AR-15 magazine release button. They are made from 7075-T3 aluminum bar stock, and then Type III hard coat anodized. The results are a nicely machined product with a uniform finish. The EMR (at right) features a Read More →

AR Review: Forward Controls Design Bolt Catch

Forward Controls Design is the latest endeavor of Roger Wang (formerly of Battle Arms Development), whose goal is to refine and augment firearm’s human interface controls. One of their debut products (yet to be officially named) will be an upgraded bolt catch for AR-15 type firearms. It will be referred to as the FCD BC (Forward Controls Design Bolt Catch) for the remainder of this Read More →

Bro, Do You Even AR? Functional Mods that Won’t Break the Bank

It’s about that time of year now when you spent all of your money on other peoples’ presents but you might get some money for Christmas and spending your new money on cool things is very much preferable to paying off the credit card charges you made for the presents you bought on Black Friday. So in honor of procrastinating paying off your credit card and Read More →

Product Review: Robar NP3 Bolt Carrier Group

People make much of the saying that a handgun’s primary purpose is to help a person shoot their way to a bigger gun (usually a rifle). So when you make it to the rifle and you’re on your last legs and your last mag, you need that thing to work, regardless of the conditions or the climate. Whether you’ve had time to lube it up Read More →

Product Review: Wilson Combat Vickers Elite Battlesight for Glock Pistols

When Larry Vickers puts his name on something, it’s probably worth taking a look at it, but when Larry Vickers puts his name on something that Bill Wilson’s name is already on, it should go straight to your short list. I’ve heard nothing but good reviews from various sources on these sights so far, but I finally had the chance to try them out for myself this Read More →
