Unusual Fiber Optic AK sights from Phoenix Technology



I’m a fan of fiber optic sights, in fact I actually rock these Hi Viz fiber optic sights on my Glock 17. Another fiber optic sight I like are actually these for the Mosin Nagant. Phoenix Technology released an unusual new fiber optic for the AK-47 called the “On Point Sight”. It mounts to the front sight block of the AK, when you look down the sight you see two green dots on both sides of the front sight. Phoenix Technology says it’s easy to install with no modification needed to your AK. The new “On Point Sight” is suppose to help with quicker target acquisition. They’re made in the USA and retail for $34.99 at www.kicklitestocks.com.

Architek Fixed Clamp-On AR-15 Front Sight



Check out this cool new clamp-on AR-15 front sight from Battle Arms Development called the Architek that looks very similar to an AK-47 front sight. Its lightweight and compact made for .750 diameter AR-15 barrels. It’s made out of machined 7075-T6 aluminum and the sight post is skeletonized to help reduce weight to just 1.3 ounces. Why would anyone need a clamp on front sight? The main benefit I see is for those who want to extent their sight radius as far as possible or for those who have low profile gas blocks.

The new Architek front sight retails for $89.99 and is available exclusively at Brownells.com

The Battle Arms AR-15 Fixed Clamp-On Front Sight was designed exclusively for Brownells to allow for the longest sight radius possible. No more settling for back up sights attached at the far end of the handguard or front sight bases permanently attached at the gas port. With the Fixed Front Sight, the user can place the assembly as close the muzzle as possible, with it solely in contact with the barrel. When shooting prone, even free float handguards will flex. If employing iron sights, any front sight attached to the handguard will be affected.

Machined from 7075 T6 aluminum & featuring a matte black anodized finish, this front sight will be as durable as the rifle you mount it on. The sight clamps onto the barrel via three 6-32×3/8” socket head screws for maximum clamping force. Lightening cuts ensure unnecessary weight is not added to the muzzle of your rifle. The front sight clamps to standard, government profile barrels, which are .750 at the gas block, or have similar profiles. Front sight will attach to outside diameters ranging from .735” to .750”. Removal of muzzle device will be necessary for installation.

Machine Gun Graveyard



Check out this picture posted on TheFirearmBlog of a bunch of machine guns at a museum in California that were made inoperable. Sad. Almost as sad as this gun graveyard in Asia full of rusted WWII and Vietnam War era guns.

From TheFirearmBlog:

This photo was taken by me at the former Military Vehicle Technology Foundation (aka the Littlefield Collection) museum in Portola Valley, CA. All of the formerly full-automatic weapons you see before you were rendered inoperable in preparation for leaving the state. This included torching both the receiver and barrel. Most of what you see in the photo are M1919s and MG42s. A number of other weapons were chopped up as well.

The Bungee Holster



I like minimalist style gear, as long as its well thought out and it works. I don’t think the bungee holster is either. The makers claim it’s the lowest profild and lightest weight profile on the market, because it’s just a piece of bungee cord. We tested another minimalist holster, the Versa Carry Holster, which suffers from the same downfall. That you can’t use either holster with a round in the chamber. The Versa Carry is a much better design however. If you want something even more simple than the Versa Carry then check out the Bungee Holster at BungeeHolster.com.

Silenced Enfield “Obrez”




Check out this cut down Enfield rifle with a can on it. It’s similar in design to Obrez Mosin Nagants which where chopped for easy concealment. The “Obrez” Enfield above was actually posted on a Russian forum and reposted by Weaponsman.com, apparantly they were used on British armored fighting vehicles.

The barrel is threaded and uses a really big can, it kind of looks like the threaded tips for a DIY oil filter suppressor.
