Holosun 510C Elite Review and water testing

We take a closer look at the Holsun 510C Elite from Holosun.

When I was choosing the 510C, I almost went with my old standby, a red dot.  I’m glad I went with the green instead.

A few years back a couple of companies attempted green dots for a second time and they did a decent job if you were only using them on a square range and under ideal lighting conditions.  The ones I tried fared poorly in bright sunlight or on very bright backgrounds.  If you were shooting in the snow?  Forget about it.

Holosun has been working on several new technologies and one of those is their current green dot.

I honestly can’t speak highly enough about it.  It’s crisp and clear, something I can have issue due to a slight astigmatism, and can get very, very bright.

If you tried green dots 5~ years ago and were turned off, you really need to give them another look IMO.

Olight M1T Raider Review

Once you start carrying a light you’ll never go without one again.  It’s like the pocket knife, you just don’t realize how useful they are until you carry one for a couple of months and then forget it for a day.

Personally I like small lights for EDC and they don’t have to be extremely bright, just useful.  That’s a topic for another article but it sets the stage for this article. Read more »

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.

When we review the Mk47 AKS13  Mutant about 2 years ago a major feature of the rifle was the 30 cal BCG and ability to take AK47 magazines.  The downside to that was a rifle which couldn’t have a last round bolt hold (due to the ASK47 mag compatibility)  and the lack of easy replacement of the charging handle.

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.

With 3,200 lumens on the top end the R50 Pro Seeker is a pretty stout light considering that while it may be about twice as wide as a traditional “taclight” it has about the same length.
