We’ll cover accuracy, reliability and even throw it up into the air to test this new Optics Ready Pistol.
Rumors of the Masada hitting the US market have been swirling for awhile now and over the past two months we’ve been testing one for IWI here at the hacienda. I really wanted to chime in on a few of the occasional posts I’d come across but being under an NDA, I had to keep my thoughts to myself. Now, I can finally spill all of that tea.
It’s easy, it’s fairly simple and you’ll ask yourself why you didn’t start checking a firearm in your luggage years ago.
Usually while on vacation, or out of town on business, I’ll occasionally make a post on social media about my vacation EDC setup. These posts always garner questions about various steps on the process of flying with a firearm.
In a crowded field of variable powered optics Bushnell pushed further into the foray earlier this year with a new offering for 2019, the Elite Tactical SMRS II Pro.
Today we take a look at the final piece of of Sandbox Tactical Box build, the optic. Initially my plans for this build were included a red dot but after accuracy testing, I felt a red dot would really down play the potential versatility of this rifle.
9mm AR’s don’t have to be finicky. Build it right, from the start, and you’ve got nothing to worry about.
They’ve been called “legos for adults” and for good reason, the now ubiquitous AR15 is one of the easiest things to build you’ll come across in the firearms arena. Building, or more precisely assembling, a 16″ AR15 in the common 5.56 caliber and with all ‘mil-spec’ parts is relatively easy and fairly straight forward.
The Advanced Combat Trigger, or ACT, from ALG Defense is probably as far as you can take a mil-spec trigger and still be considered ‘mil-spec’.
Before we get into the details of mil-spec, and perhaps bore you to death, I’d place the ACT at the pinnacle of performance of ‘mil-spec’ triggers. There isn’t much more you could do to a ‘mil-spec’ trigger before it would no longer be ‘mil-spec’.
Over the past few months we’ve spent time with a .224 Valkyrie upper from Palmetto State Armory. This particular upper has one of the newer 1/6.5 twist 20″ barrels in it which is hoped to better stabilize the extremely fast .224 round at longer ranges.
