Video: CMMG MK AKS13 First Look

Cmmg MK47 AKS13

We are really excited to take the CMMG Mutant for a test spin and see how it fairs up against an AR as well as an AK.

In this video we look at the size of the CMMG Mk47 (7.62x39mm) bolt carrier group up against an AR-15 style Bolt Carrier Group chambered in 7.62×39. We also look at a BCG that is chambered for .308 (7.62x51mm)

The CMMG MK47 charging handle has it downfalls. We show you the size difference and how we come to that conclusion.

Stay tuned as we bring more videos and reviews of this mutant rifle.

Ritter and Stark SX-1

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)

Video Tuesday!!! Vltor: The True Stock Options

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.

Video Tuesday!!!Blackhawk Cutaway Omega Vest and TacProGear Review

Blackhawk and Tacprogear

Sometimes you just need a big knife and tactical vest. This is one of those times. Like I said, I do really like the gear. However, as someone who was never military or a three gun shooter, I don’t really care all that much to wear MOLLE, unless I have a need for it. This vest has been coming in real handy while reviewing the #WindhamProject.  We are firing thousands of rounds through this rifle. The MOLLE vest makes it easier to keep mags closer for speedier reload time.

Something I failed to mention about this vest, is that is it mainly made with a mesh body.  That makes this vest breathable. This is nice in the Texas sun when you are wearing it for hours on end.

I also keep my Leatherman MUT on my vest, which you can see on the left hand side of the screen when looking at the vest.

The Operators Suppressor Systems (O.S.S.)

“110 year old suppression technology does not perform for modern operators. The next generation in suppression is here.” – Operators Suppressor Systems

OSS Banner

An Intro to Suppressors

Since we are on the topic of suppressors, let’s shed some light on the new suppressors in the market with a quick simple introduction.

The suppressors I am talking about is the patented Generation V Flow Through Technology, made by Operators Suppressor Systems located in Murray, Utah.

Introduced at ShotShow 2016

First introduced at ShotShow 2016, the Generation V Flow-Through Technology, is a patented state of the art suppressor.  I believe this will change how suppressors will be built for the years to come.

The Elite

Right now there are two types of OSS suppressors in the market. The first type is the Elite.  The Elite is built for a fully automatic rate of fire. The Elite can withstand six cycles of 8 thirty round magazines with 5.56 ammunition on full auto. This suppressor is forged to withstand the extremes of full-auto fire.

OSS BPR and OSS SRM

 The Helix

The next suppressor in the market is the Helix.  The Helix is designed and built for tactical, professional, hunting, and sport shooters demanding the best reduction. The “plug and play” also makes it convenient for you to fit on the barrel.

5.56-Helix-Carousel-Image-4-1-1200x600

Calibers

The available calibers in Elite, and Helix are;

5.56

7.62/30 Cal.

The .338, 50 Cal. and “Machine Gun” calibers are still being tested.  These calibers are scheduled to be released later this year.

The Helix and the Elite suppressor designs are both exclusively designed with the patented Generation V Flow-Through Technology and the rights are owned to Operators Suppressor Systems.

Stay tuned on how these suppressors work!

Matt and the H&K 45

A New Writer is in the House!

Hello my name is Matthew. Today I’m mostly going to be talking about the H&K-45 tactical. For starters I have been an avid shooter since Boy Scouts, 14 years ago. I have thoroughly enjoyed shooting many different guns. Boy Scouts was mostly limited to rifles.

 H&K .45 Tactical | Gearsofguns

First Handgun

One day I decided it was about time for my first handgun. So I hit the range and started renting guns.

Experimenting with Different Rentals

The first gun I picked out of the case was the S&W M&P. Then I saw the F&N 45 Tactical staring me down. I came back a little disappointed.

A Kind Range Officer

The range officer said here, try this out. He handed me a beautiful H&K 45, as I put a firm grip onto the HK I fell in love. Never have I felt such a comfortable grip in a pistol.

Happy Birthday to Me!

I went and blew through a hundred rounds very quickly. I went to find myself more ammo. Needless to say I purchased the gun for my birthday a month later.

At first sight, this gun is slick and very attractive. H&K did not stop with just the cosmetics; the internals are very well done and sturdy.

2000 Round Experience

In the past year I have put at least 2000 rounds through this gun , cleaning it, every two months. I have not had a FTF or FTE yet. To me this is expected from H&K, especially when compared to the Mark23.

Comfort Counts

The ergonomics and interchangeable back strap make this one of the most comfortable handguns on the market. I constantly pull 3-inch groups at 25 yards with this gun. The real enjoyment comes from putting the AAC-TI-Rant 45 suppressor on the end.

Attention on Deck

This package makes for one sweet shooting gun at the range. The attention it draws as well is pretty impressive. It has the recoil of a 5.7 but the punch of a 45 down range. This is mostly due to the dual recoil springs. Just another one of many features I love about this gun.

My top 10 favorite things about this gun

1. Ergonomics
2. Accuracy
3. Reliability
4. Ease of breakdown
5. The amount of variations
6. Ambidextrous controls
7. Cosmetics
8. Threaded barrel
9. Recoil
10. Child safety lock

Safe|Fun|Reliable

Overall this gun was one of my best buys I have made. It serves as a go to defense weapon in and out of the house. I trust my life with this gun, that’s how reliable it is. The H&K 45 is safe, reliable, and fun to shoot. There not much more you could ask for in a handgun.

#WindhamProject Update

What:

The Windham Project is the new Windham Weaponry RMCS-4 which is a Multi Caliber System built on the AR-15 platform and designed after the MGI Hydra. The rifle is chambered in

  1. 1. 5.56×45/.223Remington Standard AR Mag)
  2. 2. .300 AAC Blackout (Standard AR mag)
  3. 3. 7.62×39 (using an AK Mag)
  4. 4. 9mm (Using a Colt SMG Mag
  5. 5. .22LR (Using the CMMG .22 Conversion kit)

The idea behind our project is to build out an AR-15 using the Windham Weaponry RMCS-4 as the base and build out the parts to make this rifle more rounded out by using various parts from the industry.

Who:

Outside of Windham Weaponry supplying the rifle, we have a few companies who have already sent us a piece for the review.

  • · CAA – Flip up iron sights
  • · CMMG – .22 Conversion with two (25) round mags
  • · AXTS – Raptor Charging Handle, Talon Ambi Safety, and QD end plate
  • · Federal Ammunition – American Eagle 9mm and American Eagle subsonic .300AAC Blackout
  • · WMD Guns – *NEW* NiB BCG
  • · Hogue Overmolded Lava Red Pistol Grip and 6 position rifle stock

Future Plans:

We will be reviewing this rifle for 1 year. We will be reviewing each additional product sent to us, on their own in an individual review, as well as part of the final overall #WindhamProject review.

We are looking for parts that fall under the RMCS-4 parts that would be considered “stock parts” i.e. the stock, pistol grip, BCGs*, products of that nature.

End Goal:

We love the idea that Windham has for this rifle and we just want to have fun and see what else we can do with it. Our end all goals are to build an AR that is chambered in as many calibers as possible through either a barrel change or full upper receiver (in a case such as a .50BMG upper or a piston based upper or pistol caliber outside of 9mm)

Windham has built a platform that we believe is great for someone who may be limited on space and would like to own more than one rifle but space permitting is just not feasible. We want to expand on that idea. IMG_0050
