ALG Defense ACT review and Giveaway

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’.

PSA .224 Valkyrie 1/6.5 Upper


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.

Are “accessories” covered under the Second Amendment? Should they Be?

Which of these is a firearm?

At first blush the idea of an “accessory” being covered as an “Arm” might seem odd or even silly to some of you but we live in a world where common sense and logic doesn’t really apply to those who want to destroy our freedoms.

Bushnell Forge 4.5-27×50 FFP MIL reticle on Savage 110 tactical 6.56 Creedmoor

Happy New Year everyone, it’s the last day of the year and here is our final article for the year as well.

Today we’re looking at the Forge from Bushnell, our model is the 4.5-27×50 optic with the Deploy MIL reticle in the First Focal Plane (FFP).  Coming in with an IPX7 Water Proof rating and weight roughly 29 ounces, the Forge sits at the top of the trio launched in 2018 which also include the Prime and Nitro, for features and price points.

Setting the Forge ahead of the pack, at least the model we’re looking at today, is the FFP reticle, enhanced throw lever aka “Throwhammer” as well as RevLimiter zero stop and T-Lok turrets. An EXO barrier also coats the glass to help with rain and fog, as well as debris and smudges. Read more »
