Last Sunday was a good day for a few reasons. For the last decade I have wanted a Harley. Like a lot of guys, some reason not to always came up...deployments, marriage, kids, whatever. Last Sunday my lovely wife decided I had suffered long enough and bought me a HD Softail that I am afraid to touch because it looks so cool.
On my way back from snagging the chopper I dropped in on Ken Hackathorn's pistol class in at Drake's Landing near Bragg. I now know how the guy at Nike felt the first time he saw his shoes on Michael Jordan...
The second generation G2 mount is now in stock and so far has been a huge success. We lightened it from 1.4oz to .8 oz. It also addresses a logistical issue here at the shop...it looks different than the 1" mount, which could get confusing if you weren't very careful about what you were dealing with before.
Crazy Glock shit is about to go down. While the picture looks like an SVI Infinity and a Glock made a baby, the dudes who are running this shop are well-versed in reversing people's skulls with guns so they will be built for function.
Bookmark this page. The custom Glock is going to get a whole lot more custom in the near future.
S&S Precision is a shop in VA run by some dudes who know what is up. You might not have heard of them, but they make some innovative stuff.
I have been using their HK416 specific light mount for a little while and it is pretty nice. It is a plate that attaches to the vent holes in the space between the rails, which your light is bolted to. It is very low profile and well made. What does this offer over bolting it right to the rail? Well, you can change batteries a lot easier and it can be mounted on the top side of the rail where the Scout only bolts into the lower spaces without the mount. Look for a more detailed review soon.
I also think their weapons catch is innovative and has a ton of potential applications. It isn't cheap, but for it's size and diversity it is pretty fairly priced. I look forward to running one in the future. There's no reason not to with it's size.
Yes, they're the competition in some ways but when you've got a winner you've got a winner. They cater to a specific market which is why you likely have not seen or heard of their stuff but you can't keep good stuff a secret forever. Check out the link below.
Also, look for the updated version of the G2 mount next week, which is skeletonized similar to the E-Series mount for a 30% weigh savings without sacrificing any strength. It also looks super-cool, which never hurts.
