Shield Arms Announces S15 Magazine Pre-Order for Glock 46 & 48

September 16th, 2019

Bigfork, MT, September 16, 2019 – Shield Arms (shieldarms.com) is pleased to announce the pre-order launch for our S15 magazine, a flush-fitting 15 round magazine compatible with the Glock® 43X and Glock® 48!

The S15 is a made in the USA double stack steel magazine that provides a 50% increase in carry capacity over the OEM Glock® 43X/48 magazine in the same overall footprint, without sacrificing the legendary reliability that Glock® is known for.

For a limited time we are accepting pre-orders on the S15, as well as a +5 extension for the S15, and an aluminum magazine catch for the Glock® 43X/48, with combo packs available for added value.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions we’ve had regarding the magazine.

Is it reliable?

Yes! It should be noted that from the handmade prototypes we made in February and March, through the rounds of pre-production samples, to the final geometry we have today, we have never had a single failure to feed or eject. If the mag fit, it functioned, flawlessly.

What took so long?

While it always takes time to create tooling, what slowed us down is that to our knowledge, this magazine geometry has never been done before, so it took a little extra time for our magazine manufacturer to dial everything in.

Even small adjustments to a magazine design take time to change in tooling and test, and we were unwilling to compromise and release the magazine before it was ready. This is not just a range toy.

When will pre-orders ship?

We expect to begin shipping pre-orders in October; pre-orders will ship in the order they are received.

Do I need a metal mag catch since the magazine is made out of steel?

That depends on the shooter. We are offering an anodized aluminum mag catch for higher volume shooters who are concerned that the steel magazine will wear down the OEM polymer catch. It should be noted that our test guns have OEM mag catches, and we haven’t noticed any reliability issues yet. However, if you shoot enough, there is a possibility of accelerated wear on the catch, so if this is a concern, swap it out.

 

Fostech Echo Sport Trigger

September 15th, 2019

Fostech’s Echo Sport is designed as a lower-cost alternative to those who want an Echo trigger for their AR, but want to spend a bit less money. Rather than activate the Echo mode from the selector, the Echo Sport features a selector paddle that sits within the trigger well. The shooters moves the paddle to the left for Echo mode, and to the right for semi-auto. And, as with the standard Echo, the Echo mode can be turned off by moving the paddle back to semi-auto mode when the trigger is depressed.

Project REsistance Gameplay Overview

September 13th, 2019

After the excellent Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and the well-received Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom’s next entry in the extremely popular Resident Evil series is… a 4-player asymmetric co-op game. To be fair, it’s too early to really judge this one, but the footage shown so far isn’t looking particularly phenomenal. It honestly looks like a fairly generic co-op title, like Left 4 Dead with just a bit of Temco’s Deception thrown in as the Mastermind role.

Project REsistance is slated for a TBA launch, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC via Steam.

Halloween – ‘Target Practice’ T-Shirt

September 10th, 2019

This shirt, related to the ‘Halloween’ 2018 sequel/reboot film, features a pretty cool design of Michael Meyers/The Shape as a paper shooting target. The artwork was designed by Chris Bilheimer, and is printed on an olive drab 100% cotton t-shirt. Available in sizes X-Small – 2XL.

www.sacredbonesrecords.com/products/target-practice-t-shirt

It’s also available in pin form, for those who’s interest lies more in pins than t-shirts.

www.sacredbonesrecords.com/collections/john-carpenter/products/halloween-target-practice-enamel-pin

Of course, the real shame here is that the paper target itself is not available for purchase in an official capacity. Definitely looks like something Laurie Strode would have had hanging up in her backyard range in the recent film.

FLUX Defense – FLUX MP17

September 9th, 2019

FLUX Defense, creator of the FLUX Glock pistol brace, is expanding their product line with the introduction of the FLUX MP17. Available in both a pistol brace and stock-equipped SBR configuration, the MP17 is a chassis specifically for the SIG Sauer P320. The MP17 accepts the serialized Fire Control Unit and slide assembly from full-sized P320 variants, shifting from a traditional pistol design to one more reminiscent of a PDW.

FLUX MP17 from Flux Defense on Vimeo.

Features include a railed forend for the attachment of lights and/or lasers, an on-board spare mag carrier, QD mount for slings, and a fixed optic mount that is compatible with most micro red dot sights like the RMR or Deltapoint, which can also be outfitted with a Picatinny rail for the use of a larger electronic sight such as an Aimpoint or EoTech. FLEX Defense is also offering a Level 2 Retention holster specifically designed for use with the MP17, which is compatible with multiple styles of lights and even a mounted suppressor.

Intentional or not, the MP17 is actually pretty similar to the B&T USW-320. However, I kind of like FLUX’s take on the concept better, if mainly because of the fixed optic mount.

LEGO – Ultimate Collectors Series – Imperial Star Destroyer

September 8th, 2019

LEGO will soon be releasing not just one of its largest Star Wars sets, but one of its largest sets yet released in general: the Imperial Star Destroyer ‘Devastator’ from the opening scene of Star Wars Episode 1: A New Hope. Consisting of almost 4800 pieces, this set is sized 14″ H x 43″ L x 26″ W fully constructed; 17″ high when set on its included display stand. It features swiveling guns, a tilting radar dish, huge engine exhausts, and intricate surface detailing. While it’s designed so that it can be picked up and handled, this is one by its very nature that’s designed to go straight into a display case.

Unfortunately, the included Minifigures are a bit limited: you get an Imperial Officer and Imperial Crewmember, each with their own pistol weapons. However, the set comes complete with a scale model of the rebel Tantive IV ship, and a TIE Fighter, both of which can be set within the docking bay, which is pretty cool.

Check out the video below to see LEGO Senior Designer Henrik Andersen go over the set and his process for designing it:

The Imperial Star Destroyer ‘Devastator’ set releases October 1st, or September 18th for LEGO VIP members.

Rebel Distillers – DOOM Bone Vodka

September 7th, 2019

In celebration of the upcoming DOOM: Eternal, Bethesda Softworks has partnered with Europe-based Rebel Distillers to produce a licensed DOOM Bone Vodka. What makes it bone vodka, you may ask? Well, it’s a wheat-based vodka, which is further flavored with the addition of bone marrow. The marrow is extracted from roasted and smoked beef bones, which are sourced from UK-based The Ginger Pig, a butcher known for sourcing high welfare meat. Throw in the bottle, which is produced in France, and the labels which are produced in England, and you have a truly European spirit.

One that, unfortunately, is only seeing release in the UK, EU, and Australia. After the failure that was Nuka Dark Rum, it would be nice to see this one come stateside.

Anyway, for those of you who are in the intended market for this release, it’s £45 for a 700ml bottle, and can be ordered at the link below:

Brownells – Save Freedom. Buy Ammo. T-Shirt

September 6th, 2019

As a response to Wal-Mart’s recent decision to stop selling handgun ammunition and “short-barrel rifle ammunition,” Brownells has released their new “Save Freedom. Buy Ammo.” shirt. A play on Wal-Mart’s current “Save Money. Live Better.” slogan, this 50/25/25 Poly/Cotton/Rayon shirt is colored bright blue, and features a graphic with ‘Brownells’, the aforementioned “Save Freedom. Buy Ammo” slogan, and even a parody of Walmart’s own Sunburst ‘spark’ logo made of a ring of cartridges.

Available for pre-order in sizes L – 3XL.

Action Wheels – 24 Volt Thunder Tank Ride-On

September 5th, 2019

Thunder…Thunder…Thunder Tank, Ho!

This rideable tank from Action Wheels is seriously one of the coolest toys to come out in recent memory. Sized to fit up to two small children – it comes in at roughly 4 feet x 3 feet x 2 feet, with a recommended age range of 3+, and a total weight limit of 150 lbs, this Thunder Tank is powered by a 24 volt battery, and with two forward speeds and one reverse speed, can travel up to 5 MPH.

But it isn’t just for driving: it also has a manually rotating turret with working cannon, and a swivel machine gun with lights and sounds! The spring-loaded canon fires plastic shells, which are loaded by lifting a loading door on the barrel, and additional shells can be stored behind the driver on the rear end of the turret. Additionally, the Thunder Tank features red battle lights, authentic sounds that play from a speaker located on the turret seats, and ‘authentic’ design with decals throughout.

If you’re curious how it runs and sounds, check out some of the videos featuring it on YouTube; it’s seriously as cool as it sounds.

The Thunder Tank is available exclusively from Wal-Mart: www.walmart.com/ip/NEW-WALMART-EXCLUSIVE-24-Volt-Thunder-Tank-Ride-On-With-Working-Cannon-and-Rotating-Turret/204394575

DMOS Collective – DMOS Delta Shovel

September 4th, 2019

Holosun Introduces New Premium Micro Red Dot

August 26th, 2019

City of Industry, CA (August 26, 2019)- Holosun is pleased to introduce the latest in its lineup of premium micro red dot optics, the HE508T-RD. The HE508T is a pistol sized protected by a CNC machined titanium housing. Its open frame design and ultra-clear glass give the HE508T a superior sight picture, and the latest Holosun technologies make this optic ideal for any situation.

Leading the Holosun lineup for pistol sized optics, the HE508T is packed with proprietary technology to help keep its users shooting in any environment. The HE508T’s titanium housing makes it durable, corrosion resistant, and lightweight while Solar FailSafe and Shake Awake technologies keep it running, no matter what. Additionally, the HE508T has an IPX8 waterproof rating which means that the optic can safely operate in wet climates, in the rain, and even when submerged in water.

Holosun proudly boasts a battery life of up to 100,000 hours, or ten years, on the HE508T. Battery life is critical, so Holosun developed Shake Awake technology that helps users preserve battery life by detecting motion, and a lack of motion, in the optic. When no motion is detected, the unit will automatically power down the L.E.D. to conserve power. Once movement resumes, the optic immediately restores power to the L.E.D. so that the user never has to guess or wonder if their optic is active. If the unexpected should occur and the battery does fail, Solar FailSafe uses a small solar panel mounted on top of the HE508T to collect ambient light to provide illumination for red dot. The brightness of the L.E.D. varies depending on the amount of light in the environment so users will never have a dim red dot in daylight or one that’s too bright indoors.

The HE508T is tough and reliable as well as being customizable for any application using the included Multiple Reticle System. Holosun has developed this technology to allow users to choose between a 2MOA dot, a 32MOA ring, or both so that this micro red dot can be used on different weapon systems and adjusted to user preference for faster and more reliable target acquisition. While there are multiple reticles there is only one L.E.D.. This means that the HE508T only needs to be zeroed once which saves users setup time.

Packed full of Holosun’s latest proprietary technology all placed neatly into a small, lightweight, corrosion resistant titanium body makes the HE508T a rugged and capable premium optic in a small package. The HE508T is available today at authorized Holosun retailers and through their website http://www.holosun.com. The HE508T-RD features a red L.E.D., but future models will include a green L.E.D. With an MSRP of $411.75 the HE508T is a powerful micro red dot optic at an incredible value. For questions and retail inquiries please contact info@holosun.com.

The Mandalorian Official Trailer

August 24th, 2019

If you haven’t already given up on Star Wars after Disney’s blatant mismanagement of the property, you might find some interest in this trailer for ‘The Mandalorian’, an upcoming series about a Manalorian bounty hunter that takes place between Episodes 6 and 7.

Black Powder Red Earth Yemen Trailer

August 22nd, 2019

Here’s a trailer for the Black Powder Red Earth Yemen graphic novel series. For those who are unfamiliar with the franchise, here’s the official synopsis for ‘Yemen’:

In the decade following the invasion of Iraq, Private Military Companies become the preferred instrument of foreign policy by Petro-Monarchies in the failed states of the Middle East. Staffed with former SOF combat veterans, Cold Harbor selects, trains and leads armies of local nationals in conventional and unconventional warfare operations. Combat actions conducted by the PMC are not considered acts of war. They are matters of foreign internal defense.

The books sold out on the official site only 5 minutes after this trailer dropped, so you’ll have to get yours through Amazon:

Jasco Games is bringing an Evil Dead 2 board game to Kickstarter

August 16th, 2019

Las Vegas-based Jasco Games, designer and publisher of various types of tabletop and card games, has announced that they’re soon going to be putting an Evil Dead 2 board game up on the crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter.

Here’s a bit of background that lead to this announcement: there was an earlier attempt by Bellingham, Washington-based Space Goat Productions to fund an Evil Dead 2 boardgame via Kickstarter. Unfortunately, despite funding from 6000+ backers, Space Goat revealed they would be unable to complete the game and had no concrete solution for the issue. Normally, that would be the end of it, the game would have fallen into obscurity, and all the backers of the original project would go empty-handed.

However, Jasco Games, in partnership with board game designers Lynnvander Studios, have obtained the board game rights for Evil Dead 2, and will be creating their own Evil Dead 2 board game. This new Evil Dead 2 board game, which is also going up on Kickstarter, will have some of the elements from the Space Goat game integrated into its design, and Jasco Games will also be donating a copy of this new game to a backer of the Space Goat version, for every copy funded in the new campaign.

It’s easy to recognize the irony in crowdfunding the revival of a game that failed to be created after its own crowdfunding campaign fell through. However, Jasco Games has a lot of great games based on famous properties under their umbrella, so they’re probably the best bet to actually seeing this project through.

Here’s a link to the official announcement: jascogames.com/jasco-games-looks-to-revive-evil-dead-2-the-official-board-game

Stay tuned for more info on the Kickstarter campaign when it goes live.

Holosun Technologies Introduces its Newest Micro Red Dot Unit

August 12th, 2019

City of Industry, CA (Aug 13, 2019)- Holosun Technologies is pleased to introduce the latest in its lineup of micro red dot optics, the HS407C. The HS407C is an entry level pistol sized optic that features two of Holosun’s proprietary battery saving technologies, as well as a unique red 12MOA ring in place of the standard 2MOA red dot. This unique small optic built into a durable aluminum body is ideal for use on a shotgun or whatever the situation demands.

As an entry level micro optic, the HS407C is built for rugged reliability and dependability. The HS407C’s aluminum housing makes it durable, corrosion resistant, and lightweight while Solar FailSafe and Shake Awake technologies keep it running, no matter what. Additionally, the HS407C has an IPX7 waterproof rating which means that the optic can safely operate in wet climates.

Holosun proudly boasts a battery life of up to 100,000 hours, or ten years, on the HS508C. Holosun knows battery life is crucial and features Shake Awake technology that helps users preserve battery life by detecting motion, and a lack of motion, in the optic. When it senses the optic is no longer in use through movement it will automatically power down the L.E.D. to conserve battery life. Once the optic detects movement again, it immediately restores power to the L.E.D. so that the user never has to guess or wonder if their optic is active. If the unexpected should occur and the battery does fail, Solar FailSafe uses a small solar panel mounted on top of the HS407C to collect ambient light to provide illumination for red dot. The brightness of the L.E.D. varies depending on the amount of light in the environment so users will never have a dim red dot in daylight or one that’s too bright indoors.

The HS407C is unique to the Holosun lineup as it features a 12MOA ring only. This reticle style is favored among shotgun users as it can be used to help shooters predict their spread pattern more easily ensuring nothing misses the target. Additionally, this reticle allows users to see through it so it does not obstruct view like a large red dot might. This optic features ten daylight brightness settings and two night vision compatible settings as well.

Durability and affordability are where the HS407C excel. Even as an entry level optic, the HS407C still delivers strength, clarity, and a long battery life. The HS407C is available today at authorized Holosun retailers and through their website http://www.holosun.com. The HS507C is the sibling unit of the HS407C that adds Multiple Reticle System technology to the optic. With an MSRP of $270.58 the HS407C is an affordable micro red dot optic.

NERF Elite Titan CS-50

August 11th, 2019

The Titan CS-50, which is due in stores starting in September, is an absolute monster of a dart blaster. Virtually the NERF equivalent of a minigun, the Titan CS-50 features a spinning barrel assembly, and feeds from a massive 50-round drum, which will initially be available only with this blaster. The fire rate is reportedly 8 rounds a second, so it’ll blow through its drum quick. It also requires 4 “D” batteries to run, and comes with a shoulder strap, because with a blaster this size, you’re gonna need one.

The drum mag alone is actually pretty cool. It has Elite branding on the front, and a clear plastic window on the rear so you can check your remaining darts. Additionally, the bottom of the mag has a skeltonized foot, so it can serve as a pesudo-monopod. And, although this isn’t a surprise, the drum looks to be fully compatible with all other Elite blasters on the market.
