This photo of a highly motivated Peshmerga fighter and his rather interesting rifle recently hit https://www.reddit.com/r/guns/comments/2ve0p1/peshmerga_fighter_holding_what_can_only_be/. The piece de la resistance (pun intended) is definitely the M16 charging handle.

Wrong Gear’s Warrior Masks are deeply inspired by the Arabian shemagh. They’re made of light weight 100% cotton with a polyester nose mesh area to wick away moisture and allow unrestricted breathing. Warrior Masks feature a high thread count and tight knit with custom colors specially made for Wrong Gear. The masks strap on using Velcro hook and loop. The versatility of Warrior Masks means they can be used as a face veil, sunshade/sand/dust cover, neck warmer, sweat mop, dust wipe, field towel, foot wrap, short rope, emergency bandage material, etc.

The X-Treme Shooting V2 EBR Trigger Shoe is designed specifically for the pistol gripped SAGE EBR M14 chassis, although it also works well with chassis from TROY, McMillan, LAW483, CM, Blackfeather, Archangel, JAE, Vltor, M14E2, etc. It was created because the standard M14 trigger isn’t designed to work well with a pistol grip, given the upward direction of pull. It widens and lengthens the stock M14 trigger, giving the trigger a more rearward pull and preventing the tip of the trigger from stabbing the finger tip. Made from 100% steel.

First Spear, along with Renegade Armor, Wilcox, and Aimpoint, sponsored a media range day at the Las Vegas metropolitan police department firing range. Three ranges were set up, with the first two featuring rifles by H&K and LMT, and pistols by Nighthawk Custom and SIG Sauer. The third range featured something a bit more exotic: rifles by FERFRANS, who are known for their Delayed Sear Activation System. This system made the 7.5″ 5.56 SCW PDW very controllable when fired in full-auto. It’s also very likely this system was responsible for reducing the felt recoil of the 7.62 SOACR near 5.56 levels. Wilcox also had demonstrations of their breaching torch technology; seeing the torch used to melt through rebar as quickly as it did was impressive. Overall, it was a great media day that offered the chance to try out some truly fantastic firearms.
