Video: Ritter and Stark

I like this rifle. I have been in contact with Ritter and Stark and I have told them I want to see this rifle in the American market because of how awesome it is! I am on a caliber conversion kick right now with the #WindhamProject, so the Ritter & Stark: SX-1 MTR Modular Tactical Rifle has really tickled my fancy. This promo video below is making me drool. This is just a thought of mine and not something I have talked about with them but it would be cool to see a platform like this that runs the .308, .300 Win Mag and the .338 Lapua but has the ability to be upgraded to .50BMG or .408 Cheytac. (The Ritter and Stark SX-1 does not do this) If you haven’t caught our Name this Gun post where we talk about it you can check it out here: Name This … What you’re missing….

Video Tuesday!!! Vltor: The True Stock Options

tan-imod-emod_thumb.jpg

Today we look at 6 Vltor stocks in Black, FDE/Tan and Foliage Green. Vltor sent the IMOD and the EMOD stocks for us to test on the #WindhamProject. I love the fact that the EMOD stock has the battery compartment for my CR123s.  The IMOD stock is smaller so it has less of a foot print in your safe or hard case but still has the beastliness of the EMOD to handle anything you throw at them.   The #WindhamProject is a Windham Weaponry RMCS-4 AR which is chamber in 5.56, .300BLK, 7.62x39mm, 9mm and .22lr. We have grabbed some of the most awesome parts of the gun industry to help us better customize this rifle and show you how to can turn this rifle from something awesome to something EPIC and drool worthy at the range.

Eliminating the Flash

Eliminating The Flash

Baffles are the most typical style of suppressors you see. You see them in the hands of NFA approved gun owners, television shows, movies, and video games. For me, baffle can suppressors, are the epitome of the espionage world. They look really cool, and they do what they’re advertised to do! The only issues I find in the baffle can designs, aside from the headache of owning one, is the failure to evenly distribute the heat from the discharged round.  It also isn’t able to conceal the flash that is emitted from the first discharged round, depending on the caliber you are shooting with. I also don’t care for noticeable “pop” sound and a large “plume” on the very first round in the bigger calibers like the .223 or a .45 that you are trying to suppress. When first shooting a suppressed weapon system, the only way to conceal a flash … What you’re missing….

H&K VP9 Overview

Matthew is back at it again with his latest video on his H&K pistols. Today he is looking at his VP9. Today I wanted to cover the main reasons I like the VP9. I like how easy the break down is, and how the interchangeable back and side stripes works. Overall this hand gun is a must, in my opinion. I’m very eager to see if H&K will release the VPP45 soon. This would be an excellent platform to have multiple calibers. Save Save

Name This Gun: 7-13-16 Answer SX-1 MTR

Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR [UPDATE]   The SX-1 MTR is an Austrian bolt action rifle that has an interesting modularity to it. It was designed by the Russian team who helped bring the Orsis T5000 to life. They have built a platform that allows the end user to customize this rifle not only in stocks, pistol grips and triggers but also in calibers as well. The SX-1 can be chambered in .308Win, .300Win Mag and .338 Lapua… almost as if they knew all my hopes and dreams…     *clears throat* as I was saying the modularity of this rifle is rather impressive. The picatinny rails are attached to the barrel rather than the receiver so that you don’t have to rezero the rifle every time you change calibers if you want to mount three different optics to the barrels. The SX-1 does not use three bolts but rather one, that … What you’re missing….

How Does the OSS Work, Exactly?

wwb_backpressure

If you haven’t checked out our first post about the OSS Suppressor Click here The goal of a suppressor is to obviously conceal flash and sound, but how is this done? The concept is simple, but applying the concept into application is more difficult. The suppressor system needs to slow the expansion of gas from the round for as long as possible. It needs to be able to transfer all of the accumulated energy from the explosion of the round to the surface area of the suppressor. The OSS Suppressors are specifically engineered to maximize the advantages of signature reduction without sacrificing the weapon systems reliability and durability. The O.S.S. (Operators Suppressors System) Suppressor    The patented O.S.S. Flow Through Technology uses deflectors and coils to control the gas expansion through the system and pulls gases away from the bore-line. Gas expansion throughout the Baffle VS the OSS Naturally, consistent heat will degrade and … What you’re missing….
