HSGI-Taco

SWANSBORO, NC –  26AUG2014 – High Speed Gear is pleased to announce of an improvement to our TACO® line of pouches.  All TACO® pouches that utilize an injected molded bracket will have the following improvements implemented.

  • Each bracket is now 1/8th inch longer creating higher feed ramps for easier indexing and reinsertion of magazines.
  •  Increased the size of and beveled the eye hole for easier tension adjustment.
  • Adjusted the proportion of all edges and corners

The bracket is one of the most crucial and unique parts of our TACO® pouches.  It keeps the pouch open when empty and allows the user to index magazines for easy reinsertion.  By improving the bracket, it will allow for improved performance. Implementation was made across the board and the polymer material utilized retains the same strength as previous versions.

Daniel Defense Releases New Firearms and Keymod Rail System

The following is a press release from Daniel Defense.

DDM4v11 Series Rifle

 Daniel Defense introduces the DDM4v11 series of rifles with the newly designed SLiM Rail™ 15.0, their first rail system featuring the KeyMod attachment system.  “Our customers have been hounding us for a KeyMod rail”, laughs Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense Director of Marketing.  “Not only were we able to deliver, but we managed to reduce the weight.  You’ll be amazed at how light the V11 feels in hand.”  The V11 is available with the 16-inch Government, 16-inch Lightweight, or 18-inch Strength-to-Weight (S2W®) barrel.  The SLiM Rail™, which is an acronym for Slim Lightweight Modular, will be available for individual sale at a later date.

Simultaneously, Daniel Defense is releasing the MK18 Pistol and 300 Blackout Pistol.  A recent ATF ruling making it easier to possess an AR pistol, and extended approval times for NFA tax stamps, has driven demand for the pistol variant.  The MK18 Pistol is very similar to the MK18 Factory SBR—popular in the law enforcement and special operations communities—with a 10.3” barrel that is classified as an SBR (short-barreled rifle) under the National Firearms Act.  The 300 Blackout Pistol, chambered in 300 AAC Blackout, also comes with a 10.3” barrel.  Both pistols are designed with a 1.15” Diameter Pistol Receiver Extension opposed to a Mil-Spec receiver extension and buttstock and are not NFA regulated items.

Elzetta’s Instagram Photo Contest

Instagram contest2

Elzetta is having a photo contest on Instagram for your chance to win an Elzetta Modular Flashlight of your choice.

As the instructions above imply, post a photo of your Elzetta product on Instagram with the hashtag #ToughestFlashlighOnThePlanet by August 31 and the winner will be picked by none other than Top Shot Champ Dustin Ellermann.

As a huge Elzetta supporter and photographer myself, let me give you a few tips to better your chances…

  • Be Creative.  A generic shot of the light on your floor will not be noticed.
  • Be Tough.  Elzetta lights are the toughest lights you will find out there.  Show them in action and how tough they are.  A shot of them lying on bubble wrap or on a bed of cotton will probably not win you any points.
  • Be Bold.  If thousands of entries look the same, but one stands out with how bold it is, you may have a better chance.

    Good luck!
