Matthew and the Leupold HAMR Red Dot Scope

A few years back I decided it was time to purchase some new glass. I owned a rather out dated red dot. Among my list of musts, was to keep my red dot, but have the ability to zoom or magnify.

Matt and the HAMR

The Search Begins

I started looking and found magnifiers and EOtech. I wasn’t sold yet on what I had seen in the market. Finally, after a long search, light at the end of the tunnel. I saw the HAMR.

HAMR First Impression

My first impression was that this thing looks awesome! I pulled it out of the box and looked through the lens.

Slim & Low Profile

It was crystal clear as I would expect any Leopold glass to look. The red dot was slim and low profile. I was happy with my purchase, without even mounting it.

Key Features

Let’s focus on the key things that attracted me to buy this scope over so many other choices on the market.

First thing, it’s made for the AR platform in 5.56. Second is the combination of a scope and red dot in one. Finally, the quality and reputation Leopold has.

Detects Motion

My favorite feature has to be how the red dot turns on. It detects motion, so the minute you pick your gun up it’s ready to point, aim and shoot.

No longer do I fumble for the switch or button. The scope has an illuminated reticle, which is a very useful feature.

Rugged Design

This is overall a rugged designed and quality product. I feel sure this is something that will last me a life time.

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.

Repost: GEARS and the X-15

X15 Drum Mag and the  X25S Drum Mag

Yesterday we looked at the XPRODUCTS X25S for Video Tuesday which sent me back to when we had first become friends with James and the awesome Team over at XPRODUCTS.

As you can see below we have been working with them since before they dropped the S in XS-Products and I stand by my first review of the XPRODUCTS X-15Size: I live in the great state of Texas where I am not limited on how many rounds I can have in my magazine.  I own 30 round magazines and up, which can be a problem if you are sighting your rifle in on a lead sled but I found that the X-15 works great for that and I don’t have to change mags if 10 rounds wasn’t enough or if you are sighting in a number of ARs.”

After that review came out, someone laughed at me for the sighting in comment, saying if you need 50 rounds to sight in a rifle you are the problem. Lets face it, how many of us have sighted in our rifle and said “hey, I have shot my 10 rounds to get sighted in now I don’t want to shoot anymore”? Once the rifle is sighted in, thats when the real fun starts.  So why wouldn’t you loaded up a full 50 round drum for the “after party”?

What is your take on the over 30 round mags on the market?

Shooting The XPRODUCTS X-25 Drum Mag

XPRODUCTS X25 Drum Mag

Out at the range this past weekend, Tanner and I had to get some trigger time with my Windham Weaponry R16FSFST-308 Rifle and the XPRODUCTS X-25 Skeletonized Drum Magazine.

3 Years of Experience

We have been working with XPRODUCTS for 3+ years now and I can only say good things about them and the products they make. They make some of the toughest and beefiest drum magazines I have seen on the market. They do it at fair prices too.

Worth the Price

The X-25 comes in at around $350. When you first put any of their mags in your hands for the first time, you can feel they aren’t rinky-dink plastic mags.  You are not going to have baby these mags.

A Fair Comparison

You can buy a Hyundai (20 round SR-25 magazine) and say that is all you need in your life. Hey, the speed limit is only 65mph so why would you need a Ferrari LaFerrari (X25 drum mag)? I think we all know the answer… BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME!

Cannon Fodder

The X-25 or any of the other products in their line up are built to last and handle anything you can throw at it. And hey, in a fight, if 50 rounds isn’t enough, you can just lob it in as canon fodder!

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.

Vltor EMOD and IMOD Stocks in Tan

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

Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR [UPDATE]

 

Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR Sniper Rifle

Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR Sniper Rifle Broken DownThe 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 with a quick change of the bolt head, you can change calibers. Okay, so the carrying case is going to be big to fit all that expensive glass you are going to have mounted to each barrel, but we can save “some” space with the lack of three distinct bolts.

When it comes to how the rifle feeds, you might be asking, am I going to be spending $100s on extra mags for each caliber? No, because they offer magwells that use SR-25 style mags for your .308 and Accuracy International Mags.

The trigger is a Remington 700 so you can get after market triggers for this rifle which is an excellent feature.

The stock and pistol grip use standard AR platform stocks and grips so you can customize the rifle even more. Personally, if I owned this, I would use the SIG Brace and call the whole rifle my pocket pea shooter.

Sig Brace

I don’t know about you, but I only would shoot this rifle off hand from a standing position, with a sig brace and arm fully extended. That is how you get SUB SUBMOA.

[Insert epic photo of Atticus riding a Griffin while shooting this rifle with a Sig brace]

 

FN Ballista

The FN Ballista has similar features in that it can be rechambered to the same calibers, however it is lacking on some of the modularity that the Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR has.  Such as. the interchangeably of the stock, and possibly the trigger (I cannot not remember if the FN Ballista uses a trigger like that of the Remington 700)

On the topic of Remington Defense we look to their XM2010.
Remington Defense XM2010

Are you noticing a theme here?  While this rifle is just an upgraded version of the Remington 700 (M24 or M40) it has the same looking features as the Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR and the The FN Ballista just without interchangeability (GET ON THAT REMINGTON! Also make it available to us).

I have yet to find anyone selling the Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR rifle in the US. I am hopeful that maybe they will think about bringing it here by 2017 with an introduction at SHOT Show 2017.

(UPDATE from Ritter and Stark)

”Only one important thing you missed I think, the bolt is locked into the barrel breach not a barrel extension, locking lugs machined in the breach. Main idea was to create a very stable shooting platform and get rid of parts between the scope and the barrel. So basically the rifle itself is the barrel.”
