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.
In addition to the unique styling, Volquartsen Firearms included a number of performance features including:
CNC machined receiver made of stainless steel with integral Weaver type optic mount
18.5″ threaded, match grade barrel
a forward blow compensator that adds two inches to the overall length of the gun
an overall length of 38″ and weight of 5.16 pounds (unloaded)
one 10-round magazine
According to the company, there will only be 100 of these rifle made, and the guns will only be available through Davidson’s Gallery of Guns.

On the July 4th I had posted my Independence Day/Patriotic themed Cool Guns of the Internet which featured a snazzy looking .22lr similar to this one. I wish I had the specs or the info on mine but nonetheless these rifles are cool.
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.

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.
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.
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
4. Ease of breakdown
5. The amount of variations
6. Ambidextrous controls
8. Threaded barrel
10. Child safety lock
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.
The GEARS CREW are back at it again, saving the world from the evils of ectoplasm and the Ghosts who cause it.
CMMG was kind enough to send us out the conversion kit to test along side the #WindhamProject. We wanted to bring the caliber count up from the stock 4 calibers of 5.56NATO,7.62x39mm,9mm and .300BLK to a fifth caliber with the .22lr conversion kit.
Gears of Guns
Versions of the Kit
CMMG makes a few versions of this kit to handle the left handed rifles.
Just swap this drop in conversion with your bolt carrier group and you will be ready to shoot .22LR. Ships with 25rd 22LR magazine. All Stainless Steel Construction, includes a 25rd Magazine.

I think this is an awesome training aid. Trying to introduce people who have a fear of guns and mainly a fear of the AR platform can be at times difficult. This can be due to the noise or the simple fear of recoil hurting them.
I like being able to start someone off with a .22lr and getting them comfortable using one gun with one set of controls and then being able to graduate them to the .223/5.56 calibers. In other words, you can train on the gun that you will graduate to. This makes you comfortable with all the different parts of the gun that you will shoot long term. This is a great way to watch people get over their fear and really start to enjoy the sport.

I did finally figure out the answer to why… BECAUSE.
