Secret Service Switching to DAK Sig P229s

2

sig-p229-dak

The Secret Service has been in some hot water lately, but here’s something in my opinion is even more scandalous than their sexcapades with Colombian prostitutes. What can be worse you ask? Well the Secret Service is moving away from the tried and true Sig P229 chambered in .357 SIG and a DA/SA trigger to P229s with the Sig “Double Action Kellerman”, or DAK trigger.

What’s so bad about that you ask? It’s pretty much a double-action-only setup that if you ask me, is pretty awful and a feature I really don’t care for. Sure Sig says their DAK features a consistent 6.5lb trigger pull. But having the ability to shoot in single-action is a feature I really like about most Sigs. I hope whoever made the choice to make the switch at the Secret Service gets forced out along with the guys involved in the Colombian prostitute scandal.

How Kalashnikovs Are Made At Izhmash

izhmash-factory-ak-47-kalashnikov

In the wake of reports of the Russian state-owned firearms maker Izhmash going bankrupt, it seems like former Soviet propaganda ministers are already hard at work trying to make it seem like everything is fine and dandy at Izhmash. English Russia, a blog about all things Russian pretty much, posted this article about how Kalashnikovs are made. While it’s pretty interesting to see how guns are made at the historical complex, is it more than just coincidence that this was posted after it has been confirmed that Izhmash has gone bankrupt? If Izhmash is to stay afloat it seems like they need to get away from their Soviet-era manufacturing mindset, they can’t survive on military contracts anymore.

This isn’t a joke, although I wish it was. I’ve ranted about all the dumb zombie gun products in the past, so I won’t push the issue for now. But really, a zombie shotgun stock?

.223 Reformed To 300 AAC Blackout

.223-to-300blk

.300 AAC Blackout, or 300BLK, is the hot new 30 caliber round for the AR-15. It allows users of .223/5.56 AR-15s to utilize their existing mags, AR lowers and bolts when switching over to 300BLK. All you need is a new barrel, or to make things even easier, an entire new 300BLK upper. Another great benefit of the new 300BLK round is that you can use existing .223 brass you may already have. A member of r/guns posted this really cool picture of the process of reforming .223 brass to 300 AAC Blackout. You can also read up on the 300BLK round here.

The S&W M&P 15-22 MOE is the perfect solution for the AR enthusiast who wants to shoot on a budget. With the price of .223 and 5.56 on the rise shooting the popular and cheap .22LR is a very attractive option. Furthermore, this platform is an excellent choice for the shooters who want to get the rest of the family involved in shooting. The .22 Long Rifle caliber is the ideal round for introducing marksmanship to children and novice shooters because of the ease of use and low recoil. And they get to shoot a rifle that looks and feels just like an AR-15.

Archery is a skill mankind has honed for thousands of years. Civilizations from all over the world have used archery to put food on the table and to wage wars. These days archery is a sport thought to only be used by recreational hunters and kids at summer camp. While it’s no longer used to strike down advancing columns of foot soldiers or poaching his/her Majesty’s deer, the fact is archery is still alive and well today. It’s a sport still practiced by many around the world, it’s even in the Olympics.

Primary Weapons Systems Buffer Tube Demo

pws-enhanced-buffer-tube

Primary Weapons Systems makes some pretty good stuff, check out our review of the PWS MK1 Piston AR-15 for more on that. One of their more interesting products for the AR-15 is their enhanced buffer tube. It features a one piece design that eliminates the need for a castle nut so that the buffer tube will never become loose. And if you’re running a piston AR-15 upper the PWS buffer tube will help reduce carrier tilt which tends to plague many of the piston AR-15 kits out there.

The PWS buffer tube also features a dead blow buffer already installed in the rear of the buffer tube to help reduce carrier speed by around 10% which in turns reduces felt recoil. At $100 it’s not a budget mod for your AR-15, but it’s one that can make some big improvements. Check it out in action below.
