Strike Industries Mass Driver Now Available for Gen5 Glocks

Strike Industries is based in California. The restrictions in that hell ho…state have given inspiration to the company for many products that would otherwise not be allowed. Their Megafin was a massive help when running a featureless AR. Using their passion for innovation, the folks at Strike Industries also found a way to give people in restricted states access to pistol compensators. The Mass Driver, a compensator that doesn’t require a threaded barrel, is now available for Gen5 Glock pistols.

TFB Review: Bianchi Universal Revolver Holster – UM84R

The holster maker, Bianchi, recently launched a new website and updated their logo, and asked us to spotlight a few holsters to bring that fact to light. Bianchi has been in the holster making business for more than four decades, and have continued making all types of holsters for armed citizens, law enforcement, and the military under Safariland’s umbrella. Despite Bianchi’s new logo and website, they still remain under Safariland’s ownership. Today, we’ll focus our attention on Bianchi’s Military Universal Revolver holster, model UM84R. This holster is configurable in many different ways to mate numerous different carry styles into one, do-it-all, outside the waistband (OWB) holster. Since I’m an contributing member of TFB’s Wheelgun Wednesday squad, I specifically chose to review this Universal Military Revolver holster from Bianchi, let’s see if this older design is still relevant.

Iron sights, red dots, scopes, holographic weapon sights, and good ol’ guessing. There are so many ways to aim. Another option that some shooters use is visible lasers.

The Brand NEW Strike Industries OPPRESSOR Universal

I recently took my 11.5″ AR pistol, which is equipped only with an A2 birdcage, to an indoor range. Needless to say, I wasn’t well-received. If you’ve ever shot in close proximity to someone with an aggressive muzzle brake, you’re aware that another person’s blast is pretty irritating. Gasses meant to keep the muzzle stable are often directed in inconsiderate directions. The Strike Industries OPPRESSOR line has sought to deal with this problem. In its newest configuration, the OPPRESSOR Universal will slip on for use with almost any muzzle device you have on your blaster.

TFB Weekly Amazon Deals 14: Steel Targets Edition

Welcome to TFB Weekly Amazon Deals 14. Targets can be fun. I grew up shooting a whole bunch of different “reactive” targets like soda cans, empty shotgun hulls, bowling pins, and just about any other piece of junk that could be cleaned up reasonably easily after we were done shooting. One thing I didn’t get a chance to shoot until I was much older was steel. After my first experience shooting steel, I was in love and to this day, it absolutely remains my favorite thing to shoot – there’s just something satisfying about ringing steel, no matter what type of firearm it is. For this week’s Amazon deals, I’ve gathered a lineup of some on-sale steel targets for a variety of types of ammunition and I’ve also included some deals that will help you hang those targets at the range. Let’s get started with this week’s Amazon deals.

TFB Review: The Mantis X3 Shooting Performance System

Last year was a doozy. It seemed that overnight, not only were individual rights disappearing, but so were guns and ammo. Finding 9mm was and still is nearly impossible. When you do find ammo, even steel-cased FMJ is still going for 50 cents per round. We’re all aware that dry fire is a valuable tool for staying familiar with your platform, but there are also options that can give you more value with every press of the trigger. The Mantis X3 Shooting Performance System is one of those options.

DRD Tactical Announces New Retention System and Safety Selectors

DRD Tactical is a firearms and parts/accessories company based in upstate New York, in the small town of Lyons Falls. The impetus for their founding in 2010 was a US Government whitepaper request for a 7.62-caliber rifle that could be transported in a briefcase. The company has since developed a series of rifles based largely on two key patents from that original concept, which became the Paratus rifle they sell today. These two features are a quick barrel change system and an internal recoil system. Their current lineup seeks to leverage these components in firearms that are meant to compete with more standard versions of fighting rifles like the AR-15, AR-10, and SCAR platforms, among others.
