New Springfield Armory XD Mod. 2 Tactical



Springfield Armory recently announced their new XD Mod. 2 Tactical pistol. It’s chambered in 9mm and holds 16+1 rounds. It features a 5″ barrel, low profile fiber optic front sight and notched rear sight. Stay tuned for a release date and pricing from Springfield Armory.

GENESEO, IL, January 15, 2016 – Sometimes bigger is better. That’s exactly the goal of the new XD® Mod.2™ Tactical model from Springfield Armory®.

Designed for recreation, self-defense, or competition, this full-size XD® not only offers big capacity but faster-aiming capability thanks to its extra long sight radius. The five-inch barrel not only delivers every possible bit of extra velocity, but it also adds a little more weight up front, which helps control recoil and muzzle flip, allowing shooters to get back on target faster.

“Finally! This is the Mod.2™ I have been waiting for!” says Rob Leatham, Captain of Team Springfield™. “The XD® Mod.2™ Tactical is optimized to increase its performance. It has a longer slide, a full-length frame, increased weight and an increased gripping area size,” he explains enthusiastically, “This gun is pretty much everything I want in a competition-capable package without being too big, or too heavy for other uses.”

The XD® Mod.2™ 5” Tactical Model packs 16+1 rounds of 9mm ammo in its two included stainless steel magazines. While it’s a double stack design, it’s not too thick to carry like so many competitors’ models. Measuring just 1.19 inches wide, it’s a good tenth of an inch narrower than most double stacks on the market and barely wider than single stack pistols with far less capacity.

Whether used on the competitive range or for more tactical scenarios, fast and accurate shooting requires control, so all of the Mod.2™ enhancements are included. High cutouts on the back of the grip and behind the trigger put support near the bore line to minimize muzzle flip. The new Grip Zone® contours and texturing are specifically designed to provide maximum purchase at those points where hands and fingers require the most contact. Three different textures provide the grip surface needed without painful overkill.

The sights are designed for fast acquisition, leveraging the combination of fiber optic front paired with a low profile combat rear sight. The bright fiber optic tube leaps into view while the rear sight is shaped so it won’t catch on holsters or clothing.

The new XD® Mod.2™ Tactical model is available in black with a Melonite® slide or Bi-Tone with a forged stainless steel slide. Overall dimensions measure 8.3 inches long and 5.5 inches tall.

Built for high volume use, the Mod.2™ Tactical isn’t a gun that will require babying. This combat-ready gun is designed to be used, not left in the safe.

WTF? Bren or Upside Down AK?



Check out the gif above posted on TFB. At first I was like, cool a Bren machine gun still in use! Then I looked at it again, is that? Is that a guy shooting an AK-47 upside down?! Why the hell would someone shoot their rifle like that on purpose?

WTF?! An AR Muzzle Brake with Picatinny Rails



You can find some interesting stuff on Amazon, just like this AR-15 muzzle brake with Picatinny rails. Yeah that’s right, a muzzle brake with 4 rails on the sides, top and bottom. What. The. Fuck. I’m not sure what the point of a muzzle brake with rails is, the picture below from the product page tries to say that it allows you to increase the sight radius, I guess. Or you can hang your weapons light off of it, because exposing your flashlight to piping hot gun powder is a great idea. In case any AR accessory makers out there are reading this don’t try and copy this sweet design because it’s patented, looking at you Lantac.

In case you need to operate more better with your AR check them out at Amazon.com for only $22.99 shipped, it’s totally worth it.

Best Budget Priced AK-47 Muzzle Brakes



The AK-47 and all it’s variants are great rifles, especially when you add one simple and affordable mod. A muzzle brake can make a huge difference with the AK-47. The 7.62×39 round and the AK’s long-stroke piston design can make for a pretty good thump. While it’s not overly harsh, it’s quite a bit more than the AR-15. A good muzzle brake can help tame the AK’s recoil as well as help with faster follow-up shots. One great benefit of the AK is how easy it is to install a muzzle brake, just press the detent and twist it off.

A good muzzle brake doesn’t have to break the bank, below is a list of the best low-priced budget friendly AK-47 muzzle brakes.

Tapco Intrafuse Slot Muzzle Brake


The first muzzle brake on our list is one of the most affordable of the bunch but it also is one of the most effective. It has a simple and compact design that doesn’t add much lenght or weight to your rifle. At around $16 with free shipping it won’t break the bank.

AK-74 Style Muzzle Brake


The AK-74 style muzzle brake is a tried and true design that the Russians have been using for decades. Orginally designed for the AK-74’s 5.45×39mm cartridge it has been adapted for use with the AK-47’s 7.62×39 ammo. At under $11 with free shipping it’s definitely affordable.
