NEW HARVESTED : BORDERLANDS VIDEO

During World War II, American soldiers stationed off the Barbary Coast of Northern Africa discovered a native sheep species, known as the aoudad. Recognizing their potential as a game animal, they shipped them to Texas; aoudads quickly proved to be an extremely challenging hunt for multiple reasons. Their keen sense of smell, hearing, and alertness to danger, combined with their capability to retain water from sparse vegetation and survive long periods of time without it, gives them the ability to live in rugged, dry habitats that are often too harsh for other animals.

We had the rare opportunity to scout the high desert terrain with UFC® Featherweight Fighter Chad Mendes in search of this elusive creature. Equipped with suppressed rifles and accompanied by expert guides, we set off to reconnect with the wilderness and harvest some challenging game.

Video Tuesday!!! MITUSA MAGPUMP First Look

Atticus takes a detailed look at the Magpump AR 15 Magazine Speed Loader from MITUSA. Stay tuned for an updated review after we put several thousand rounds through this mag loader.

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: Ritter and Stark

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.

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.

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 video below is of the OPSGEAR guys using the cutaway system.
