Black Aces Tactical announces a new Semiautomatic Shockwave

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Black Aces Tactical (BAT), an American manufacturer best known for its patented custom shotguns, is excited to announce the release of the company’s new Semiautomatic Shockwave and Peacekeeper shotguns.

Said Lemoine, “The Shockwave platform has been nothing short of a phenomenon. We have always felt, and more importantly the customers have always felt, that a semiautomatic version is inevitable. The brass ring has always been a semiautomatic 12 gauge platform in the most compact package possible. We feel that we have created an incredible weapon here.”.

At $949 retail – a shooter has choices. Both the Semiautomatic Shockwave and Peacekeeper Pistol Grip versions can be had in 18.5 6+1 trim as well as the uber cool 12.5” 4+1 SBS trim. For a few dollars more, Black Aces Tactical will install a 6 position folding stock.

“For as long as we can remember, the gun industry has been playing follow the leader. Our goal is to give the customer something that other manufacturers won’t.”.

Both the Shockwave Semiautomatic and Peacekeeper Pistol Grip models feature a number of innovations.

First and most obvious, the recoil assembly must be relocated and old recoil tube modified to accept the grip. Next the gas ports are tuned to operate both low and high brass. Finally the trigger is addressed in order to facilitate fast feeding. “Being that we use a Remington 1100 base, we have identified addressed a number of weak points.”, said Lemoine.

When the team unmasked whatever evildoer was causing mayhem, said villain always exclaimed, “and I would have…”

30 Seconds Out commemorates one of the greatest operations in US military history, by reminding us of those meddling kids.

BOSS StrongBox Raising Funds For Gold Star Teen Adventures

Monday, June 4th, 2018

BOSS StrongBox will be hosting an fundraiser raffle online with a goal to raise over $5,000 for Gold Star Teen Adventures; a non-profit whose mission is to provide healing, mentor-ship, development, and opportunity to the children of Special Operations Service Members who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Gold Star Teen Adventures was started by Kent Solheim, a Special Operations Service Member who was seriously wounded in combat in Iraq in 2007, ultimately losing his right leg. Kent’s experiences on his road to recovery inspired the creation of Gold Star Teen Adventures. Kent, a father of two, realized that if he had not made it home, he would have still wanted his children to know the brotherhood of the Special Operations community that he had grown to love, and to share the adventures that his career had permitted him to do.

BOSS StrongBox has teamed up with other leading brands to provide over 20 different prizes with a total retail value of over $5,000. Ranging from Pelican Cases to Streamlight TLR, Blac-Rac Weapon Retention Systems, Gerber Multi-Tools and more, there will be plenty of great prizes to win.

With raffle tickets selling for only $10 each, it won’t cost you much for a chance to win.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the cause and doing what we can to help support programs like Gold Star Teen Adventures and give back to the families who have served our country and ultimately gave their lives for our freedom.

The fundraiser starts June 1st and will run through the month, ending June 29th. You’ll want to follow along on Instagram (@BossStrongBox) to get updates and watch the live raffle take place at the end of the month (note: you won’t have to watch live to win, if you’re name is pulled we’ll contact you).

DroneShield Ltd Announces DroneGun Tactical

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

DroneShield Ltd announces the DroneGun Tactical product, available for purchase by qualified end-users.

The release of DroneGun Tactical follows the release of DroneGun MKII in late 2017. DroneGun Tactical is much more compact than the MKII model but has a shorter range.

Features:

• No backpack – the product is entirely self contained within the rifle body, while maintaining lightweight and long effective range (over 1km).

• Addition of 433Mhz and 915Mhz frequencies, to ensure complete effectiveness across drone models.

• Ergonomic body and controls.

• Further alignment with standard military specifications, including standardised NATO military battery power.

DroneGun Tactical is not intended to supercede DroneGun MKII. Rather, it is designed for users with a different set of requirements than those using DroneGun MKII.

James Yeager Announces New YouTube Channel

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Last month, James Yeager was kicked off of Youtube. But he accepts that he needs Youtube, stating that it’s the second most powerful search engine on earth after Google.? While he pursues alternatives, he’s set up shop at a new Youtube address.

He claims that in its previous incarnation, you only got him at 75%, which was still more than they could handle. While he will still offer product reviews and tactical tips, he plans to throttle it back to 25% this time.

The plan is to reach the masses via Youtube and say what he really wants to at libertv.com. Eventually, he hopes that his libertv project will include others.

    Magpul Developed a 60-Round Quad Magazine

    Wednesday, April 5th, 2017


    Quad Mag Prototype, 60-Round Capacity 2009

    Shortly after the introduction of the original PMAG, Magpul began working on increased capacity solutions. The “Quad” or “Coffin” mag concept never delivered the reliability in rough handling and adverse conditions that they require from their magazine products, and so the design never made it into production. Lessons learned during this program eventually fed into the D-60 program.
