FDE Glock 42 From Lipsey’s



Looking for a Glock 42 in Flat Dark Earth? Well they’ll be available from firearms distributor Lipsey’s.

Baton Rouge, LA — Lipsey’s, nationally renowned firearms distributor, has added the much anticipated Flat Dark Earth version of the Glock 42 to their robust line of FDE Glocks.

The new Lipsey’s Exclusive Glock 42 adds another excellent option to the growing family of FDE pistols which now spans 33 models including two-tone and full Flat Dark Earth.

Lipsey’s Product Development Manager, Jason Cloessner, has been working with Glock for several months on adding Lipsey’s signature FDE to one of the most popular .380 ACP’s on the market. “The FDE line of Glocks have firmly entrenched themselves as a mainstream item. The Glock 42 was a natural follow-up to what has become one of our most in-demand exclusive offerings.“

All of Lipsey’s Exclusive Flat Dark Earth Glocks are molded in the FDE color at the Glock factory. This molding method provides greater color durability that prevents chipping, peeling and better wear resistance as opposed to some offerings that feature aftermarket coatings applied to the frames.

Located in Baton Rouge, Lipsey’s was originally formed as a wholesale hunting and fishing distributor in 1953. Today it is one of the nation’s most prominent wholesale firearms distributors. The company, which sells exclusively to federally licensed dealers, has received a number of awards and accolades for its industry leadership. Moreover, Lipsey’s is recognized for its dedicated team, excellent relationships with customers and top firearms manufacturers, and exclusive product offerings.

Marlin 1895 Lever Action Rifle From Jurassic World



If you just saw the new movie Jurassic World I’m sure you’re wondering, what lever action rifle was Chris Pratt using the movie? I was wondering the same thing as soon as I saw it on screen. It’s a pretty sweet looking rifle, I’ve always had a thing for lever actions.


Well apparently it’s a Marlin Model 1895SBL chambered in .45-70 Government per IMFDB. Just like with the SPAS 12 shotgun from the original Jurassic Park movie the Marlin 1895 lever action is sure to be an iconic gun from the franchise.

In case you want to build a clone the rifle in the movie seems to also be using a Butler Creek Ultra Cartridge Sling, FX-II Scout IER 2.5x28mm Scope, and Leupold Rifleman Detachable See-Thru High mounts. Thanks to the commentor below for pointing that out.

In case you’re wondering the other gun in the above picture is also using a Crimson Trace Laser.

Amazon Bans Lasers



Bad news for gun enthusiast who are Amazon shoppers, they recently announced that they’re banning the sale of lasers on their site.

That means weapons lasers like those from Crimson Trace or bore sighters might not be available anymore. Currently there’s still weapons lasers available but they may be removed next month.

EDIT: It appears Amazon has changed their terms and laser bore sighters and weapons lasers are NOT going to be banned afterall.

Recover Tactical CC3 1911 Grip and Rail System Review


Recover Tactical 1911 Grip

The 1911 is the quintessential American handgun. The original design is over 100 years old and is still going strong. When John Moses Browning designed the 1911 there were no pistol lights or Picatinny rails however. If you wanted to light up what you were aiming at you held a flash light in the other hand. These days most handguns include tactical rails up front to mount lasers or pistol lights. What if you have an older styled 1911 that doesn’t have a rail? Well the folks at Recover Tactical have the solution with their CC3 1911 Grip & Rail System.

Aimpoint PRO Survives Housefire



This amazing story of an Aimpoint PRO red dot was posted over at Recoil recently. It really shows just how durable Aimpoint’s products are.

“I lost pretty much everything,” he says.

Aside from all his family’s other possessions, he lost three firearms in the blaze. But, he reports his Aimpoint PRO mounted on a Spikes lower/BCM-EAG lightweight upper frankenrifle somehow survived the fire. That’s it in the inset photo of his rifle above, red dot glowing defiantly. Aimpoint found out about it and already swapped it for a brand new optic and with a plan to display the survivor in its museum.

“Here’s a picture of my AR after it was recovered from my house fire after being exposed to the elements for over a month in late February to mid March,” said Riddell. “The rifle was at the core of the fire.”

He said the rifle sat in the water and ice leftover from the firefighters, exposed to the outside in sub zero Wisconsin winter. Weeks later, Riddell was allowed to look through the wreckage after the fire investigation was complete. He found his melted pile of a rifle covered in ice, rust, ash and mud in the debris. The polymer rifle case it was stored in had fused to sections of the rifle, as well. He pried open the eyepiece cover on the PRO and turned the knob. And, it lit up.

“Had I been willing to trust firing the gun,” said Riddell, ” I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if it held zero.”

Kendo with Lightsabers



There’s no doubt that George Lucas was heavily influenced by old Japanese Samurai movies when he wrote Star Wars. Jedi Knights were largely based on the Samurai of old. The sport of Kendo has its roots in feudal Japan as well, what better way to merge Samurai and Jedi than having a Kendo match with lightsabers? Check out the video below of two Kendo practitioners going at it with lightsabers. This is so bad ass they should use lightsabers all the time for Kendo matches.
