Iron Harvest is a project currently up for funding on Kickstarter. Iron Harvest takes the art of Jakub Różalski and his ‘World of 1920+’, and adapts it to a Real Time Strategy video game. The World of 1920+ itself is an alternate history, which takes place in the early 20th century after a great war where powerful walking tanks and other heavy industrial-inspired weapons and technologies were used to great effect.

The campaign itself has reached its minimal funding goals, however it still has a way to go before its stretch goals are all reached, so if you’re interested give the campaign a look at the link below:

Aimpoint Announces Limited Run of Micro T-2 Flat Dark Earth Sights

March 15th, 2018

Manassas, Virginia – March 15, 2018 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in reflex sighting technology, has announced the launch of a limited run of Micro T-2™ carbine ready sights in Flat Dark Earth (FDE) color. This is the first time the company has offered an FDE finished sight to the US market.

The sights are being finished with Cerakote® H-Series surface coating – an advanced thin-film ceramic coating that bonds completely with the aluminum alloy housing of the sight. Cerakote® finishes are known worldwide for their corrosion and chemical resistance, UV and thermal stability, and durability under extreme conditions.

“We needed to match our choice of color surface finish with the durability and performance of the Micro T-2 sight,” said Jonas Ardemalm, Director of Commercial Sales & Marketing at Aimpoint AB. “Cerakote® offers an extremely durable coating that has been proven to perform under very demanding conditions, and it offers advantages beyond typical paint applications. We are very happy to offer this enhanced Micro T-2 to our customers in the USA.”

This initial run of FDE Micro T-2 sights is being offered on a test basis through a select group of authorized Aimpoint Dealers in the USA, and they are expected to sell out quickly.

    Bushnell Launches New Ballistics Calculator App

    March 12th, 2018

    OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – March 9, 2018 – Bushnell, an industry leader in high-performance sport optics, announces the release of a new Bushnell Ballistics App powered by the proven and powerful Applied Ballistics Ultralite Engine.

    The new Bushnell Ballistics App is a companion app to use with Bushnell riflescopes to calculate firing solutions for ammunition and rifle combinations. The app allows users to use current atmospheric data and AB Laboratory bullet data to calculate the hold-overs needed to make precise shooting solutions.

    “The new Bushnell Ballistics App is powered by the Applied Ballistics Ultralite engine, the most trusted ballistics data-cruncher in the industry,” said Bushnell Marketing Manager Matt Rice. “With a clean and user-friendly interface, this app allows users to easily build and modify gun profiles and build range cards to calculate firing solutions based on their specific scope and ammunition choices. All of our Bushnell scopes and reticles have been pre-loaded, giving users simple ballistic solutions anywhere they go.”

    The free app works on both Android and iOS operating systems, and is available on Google Play and the App Store. It is optimized for Bushnell riflescopes and reticles, but is compatible with all optics. Once downloaded, the app functions off the grid, with no cell service required.

    The app features AB Connect, which gives users a live library of G1/G7 data as well as the Applied Ballistics Bullet Library with more than 740 pre-loaded bullets. The Bushnell scope library features more than 150 scopes and 30 reticle options. Gun profile management provides up to five saved profiles with reticle-based firing solutions. Plus, multiple target engagement saves up to five targets. Atmospheric data can be updated manually or from the internet when connected. Angle range compensation is also calculated. Range cards can be shared or printed using the Email Range Card Function.

    “The new Bushnell Ballistic App puts the power of long-range, first-shot accuracy into the hands of any shooter,” Rice said. “Like all of our products, it was designed to perform in any condition and to offer our consumers true value, with features that far exceed the price—which, in this case, is free!”

    To download the app, simply go to Google Play or the App Store and search “Bushnell Ballistics” to get started.

    Bushnell, a Vista Outdoor brand, is one of the most recognizable and trusted names in precision hunting, tactical and recreational optics and accessories. For more information, visit www.bushnell.com.

    SOG Knives – Voodoo Hawk Mini

    March 11th, 2018

    SOG’s Voodoo Hawk Mini is, as its name implies, a smaller version of the original Voodoo Hawk. How much smaller? Well, admittedly not majorly so:

    Length: 12.5″ (Mini) vs. 12.56″ (Voodoo)

    Blade: 2.75″ (Mini) vs. 3.5″ (Voodoo)

    Weight: 23.10 oz. (Mini) vs. 28.50 oz. (Voodoo)

    Still, it is measurably more compact, and with the same general design and material composition, just as functional and durable as the original.

    Plus, the Voodoo Mini is about a sawbuck less expensive than the original Voodoo, and like its big brother comes with a nylon, snap closure sheath.


    Air Venturi Releases Nomad 4500 PSI Portable Compressor

    March 10th, 2018

    Compact compressor is designed to fill PCP guns directly from a wall outlet or a car battery

    Solon, Ohio (March 8, 2018) – Air Venturi, the leading manufacturer and importer of airgun, airsoft, and ammunition brands, is introducing the Air Venturi Nomad, a 4500 PSI portable air compressor built for the airgunner on the move. Now available at AirVenturi.com, the release offers a portable, affordable filling option for PCP shooters.

    “With the release of the Air Venturi 4500 PSI Compressor last year, we gave airgunners one of the first affordable PCP fill stations, a workhorse that could fill tanks and PCP guns alike at a much faster rate.” Says Kristen Coss, Marketing Manager at Air Venturi, “The Nomad is positioned as a portable fill station you can take with you, and is designed for filling PCP guns directly. It won’t fill as fast as the original AV compressor, but can easily pressurize a 250cc cylinder from empty to filled in just 9 minutes. If you have access to a car battery, you can fill your gun in as little as 3 minutes.”

    According to Paul Milkovich, Air Venturi’s Director of Business Development, the Air Venturi Nomad Compressor marks a turning point in PCP airgunning and may attract more users to PCP airguns. “Typically compressors can be heavy, large, and have to stay cooped up in the garage. With an MSRP of $549.99, our compressor puts fast, portable refills within reach, at an attractive price.”

    The Nomad plugs into a standard 110V outlet or attaches to a standard car battery. Once connected, it can fill PCP guns directly up to to 4500 psi with an adjustable cut-off switch. Each compressor includes a hose with female quick disconnect fitting, integrated moisture catch, and a bleed valve.

    Approximate fill times:

    Benjamin Marauder Pistol (65cc): 0-3000 psi in approx. 3 min
    Diana Stormrider (100cc): 0-3000 psi in approx. 3:45 min
    Air Arms S510 Xtra FAC (231cc): 1450-2900 psi in approx. 5:30 min
    Ataman M2R Carbine Ultra Compact (130cc): 0-4350 psi in approx. 8 min
    Evanix Rainstorm (250cc): 0 – 3000 psi in approx. 9 minutes
    Airforce Texan (490cc): 0-3000 psi in approx. 17 min

    DoubleStar Strongarm Pistol Brace takes Pistol Stabilizers to a Whole New Level

    March 6th, 2018

    Made tough, made to last and Made in America. Strongarm your pistol.

    Winchester, Ky. (March 2018) – DoubleStar Corp, manufacturers of high-quality, US-made AR components, rifles and pistols, is proud to offer an alternative to cheap pistol stabilizers with the new DoubleStar Strongarm Pistol Brace. What sets the Strongarm apart from the competition is that it is made from rugged 6061 billet aluminum, unlike many of the plastic or soft foam products currently on the market.

    Made in America, the Strongarm is built to last, just like the rest of the DoubleStar and Ace product lines. The Strongarm features three QD swivel mounting points with swivel included and fits pistol buffer tubes with a 1.11 to 1.2 inch diameter. Finished with a Type 3 hardcoat anodize to withstand plenty of use, it also comes with a hook and loop strap for increased stabilization, making the Strongarm your shooting arm.

    “With the popularity of pistol stabilizing braces on the rise, there are many that make the shooting experience less desirable because of poor materials or faulty production,” Nick Collier, director of special operations for DoubleStar, said. “We at DoubleStar know that people rely on our products, whether it is because they are military, law enforcement or serious competitors; therefore, it is extremely important to us that every part is carefully designed and manufactured in our state-of-the-art facility using only the materials and technology that will ensure our DoubleStar and Ace products will perform to our stringent standards.”

    Creedmoor® Sports Wants Your Ideas!

    February 27th, 2018

    Creedmoor® is always looking to expand their namesake line of precision rifle equipment and gear and are looking to their customers for ideas.

    Anniston, Ala. (February 2018) – Creedmoor® Sports, the leader in precision rifle equipment and gear, is looking to their customer base for the next great Creedmoor Sports product. Creedmoor products are designed and produced several ways; first, by evolving an older product to meet today’s shooters needs; second, as a company by and for shooters, many ideas are born internally; and third, many of Creedmoor’s greatest ideas come from shooters who are out using products every day and know how to make it better. Creedmoor Sports wants to hear from you.

    “We love it when a customer calls or emails us with an idea. If the idea has merit we will immediately try to put it into play. If a soft-good we try to take it from idea to sample within a couple days. The idea is walked back to our designer, it’s cut and sewn on the spot in our Anniston, Alabama facility and we start testing. If a hard-good, we start designing the product on our mill and lathe and see what it would take to bring to market,” said Dennis DeMille, Vice President of Operations, Creedmoor Sports.

    Customer inspired products have included the Scope Kennel, a seemingly “why didn’t I think of that” product. Made with a top strap for easy rifle carry, it serves to protect a rifle scope. The Quad Fold Shooting Mat, another made in Anniston, Alabama and customer suggested, is designed for high power, smallbore, air rifle and casual shooting. The Quad Mat provides an extra comfortable platform and stable base for elbows and knees and when folded, measures just 2.5” X 19” X 29.” The recently released Bench and Field Shooting Mat was another customer inspired product. Not just a ground or just a bench platform, it’s both! Easy to carry and set up and totally color customizable, including a variety of hunting camos and military camos.

Plus, the matte black barrel’s button rifling provides tag-filling accuracy whether the target is antelope, elk or anything in between.
