MGSS PRS QD Sling Adapter Review

Category : Competition, Shooting Gear Review, Stocks, Tactical

My favorite AR-15  3 gun stock is the Magpul PRS because it’s adjustable. I can have it fit me close to perfectly. The downsides are that it is heavy and I don’t like the sling attachment setup the way it comes from Magpul. Every once in a while during a 3 gun match its necessary to use a sling. I like QD (Quick Detach) sling mounts because they are fast, reliable, and are flush fitting. There is now a product that will allow conversion of the Magpul PRS sling system to QD.

Shotgun Dummies for Shotgun Loading Practice

Category : Competition, Shooting Gear Review, Shotguns, Tactical

With 3 Gun season quickly approaching it is time to start practicing loading the shotgun. During a match, shotguns can be unloaded as fast as you can pull the trigger but loading them is a one shell at a time process. Practicing your loading technique can make a big difference in your overall time and score. Remington is now making Dummy Shotgun Shells that are to factory spec and have real shot in them so they feel the same as loading a live round.

Sun Devil Mfg. AR-15 Heavy-Walled Billet Receiver Review

Category : Competition, Rifles, Shooting Gear Review, Tactical

Many shooters are curious about the advantages of using a heavy-walled billet receiver for their AR-15 build. Accuracy, in a word, is the biggest advantage. Heavy-walled billet receivers are more rigid or stiff. A more rigid receiver will prevent excess movement and flex when a round is fired. It will also help reduce harmonics that are damaging to accuracy. The series of events before, during, and after a round is fired are more likely to be consistent with a rigid upper.

The M16/AR-15 platform’s original design was for military use and as such had every extra ounce removed to keep the gun lightweight. Regardless of its lightweight receiver, the M16/AR-15 came out inherently accurate.

JP Enterprises – New AR Innovation – JPSCS

Category : Competition, SHOT Show 2012, Tactical, Video

View the Video of John Paul talking about the new JPSCS below

Just when I’m convinced that innovation in the world of AR’s is cosmetic or limited to new finishes, JP Enterprises invents something revolutionary. I haven’t had a chance to test it yet but JP’s new JPSCS (Silent Captured Action Spring) is on my short list of things from the 2012 SHOT Show to try. John Paul tells me the silent action spring gets rid of all the mechanical feeling of the bolt moving in an AR. He described it as similar to shooting a bolt-action. JP rifles with the Low Mass Bolt and Buffer system are already pretty amazing. In fact, it’s  hard to believe that they could get any better; however, this JPSCS is not only supposed to improve on how  a mil
