CMMG Mk47 and Mk4 AR15 Ambi charging handles

CMMG released some new ambidextrous charging handles recently and we very pleased to see they released one for their Mk47 line of rifles, in addition to one for the AR15.

My solution, until now, was to swap out the Read more »

PSA AR-15 Freedom Upper and Complete MOE Lower

Why is it always cheaper to buy AR-15 uppers and lowers separately?  It’s not because of the labor saved by placing an upper onto a lower and pushing in two pins.  The answer, like most things, comes down to one word: government.  You see, an 11% excise tax is placed upon every completed rifle sold in the US and by not completing an AR, there is an automatic 11% savings that can be passed onto the consumer.

Today we are taking a look at two items from Palmetto State Armory: Read more »

Vanquest Markhor 45 Review

We were lucky enough to get our hands on one of the first Markor-45 packs.  This is a full size pack from Vanquest with a ton of options for customizing it to the users body type and pack needs.

Coming in at 6 pounds on the nose this pack isn’t as heavy as it would look thanks in part to using 500 D Cordura in lower wear areas and 1,000 D in areas that are more prone to wear.  It also has a removable high strength poly carbonate frame as well.
