There are a total four models of the new Bushmaster ACR which is essentially a Basic and Enhanced in two colors, Black and Coyote Brown. All models come in both 5.56mm or 6.8 SPC. All the rifles can be switched to either caliber by swapping out the bold head and barrel however.

The new SOG Tabletop Sharpener


SOG Knives has released their new Tabletop Sharpener featuring a carbide tip and suction cup base to make it stable for almost any surface. It makes a great knife sharpener for the kitchen, garage or man cave. Their new second gen Tabletop Sharpener sits about 3/4″ higher than the previous generation making sharpening easier. It’s small size also makes it easy to store away when not in use. No word on weather SOG will sell additional carbide replacement blades, but the ones provided with the kit should last quite a long time. For more info visit www.sogknives.com.
