TFB Review: Trijicon MRO Reflex Sight and Spuhr QD Mount

Over the years I have used several different brands and models of red dots. They all have their place and uses and so far I have not found the perfect red dot sight. The Trijicon MRO is my first reflex sight from them and the first Trijicon product I have ever owned. The reason why I bought it was to see if my competition shooting results could improve in PCC (Pistol Caliber Carbine) overall and Steel Challenge (PCC) specifically. Not that I have a huge amount of experience with PCC and Steel Challenge yet, but shooting is shooting.

POTD: Breitling Avenger 45 Night Mission Inspired Spuhr Mount

When more or less every riflescope mount is black, it’s time to be different. Therefore I wanted to create something unusual for my next project, so I asked my Cerakoter ( SCR.Nu) to replicate the colors of the Breitling Avenger 45 Night Mission on a Spuhr mount. I think it came out really well, but I understand this isn’t for everyone.

New Vertical Front Grip from Spuhr

Did you ever feel that you needed a vertical front grip for your Spuhr Interface handguard? Now you can, with the new R-100 Front Grip. Vertical front grips are controversial in my world, while I do like them and use them (always) on some firearms they are “forbidden” on others. It almost feels like cheating using them, but on some occasions – like barricade shooting – they may be in the way so I try not to get used to them.
