Muzzle Brakes and Flash Hiders, Mandatory for Survival

Opinion Muzzle Brake or Flash HiderFt Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “Muzzle Brakes” and “Flash Hiders:”Nearly all ostensibly serious rifles being offered for sale today come with some sort of “muzzle device,” designed to:(1) Redirect expanding gasses at the muzzle to attenuate felt recoil and muzzle-rise, or(2) Attenuate muzzle “flash,” caused by expanding gasses at the muzzle being expelled into the atmosphere while still burning, causing a bright “flash.”The former is called “Muzzle Brakes,” like those made by Witt Machine and the latter “Flash Hiders.” However, there is usually some overlap, in both directions.Most flash hiders depress felt recoil, at least slightly. Most muzzle brakes attenuate muzzle flash, but some exacerbate it. Some “muzzle devices” are deliberately designed to do a little of both.It is important to note that just about all muzzle devices described above also perform the critical function of protecting the barrel (and the shooter) from damage when the muzzle becomes inadvertently plugged with debris (mud, sand, sometimes pebbles), and then the rifle is immediately fired.With most muzzle devices in place, the debris is simply blown-off to the sides, and the rifle continues to fire usually, with no damage to the barrel, nor injury to the shooter, nor to others.Under the same circumstances, a flat-crown muzzle will often be catastrophically damaged, and the shooter, as well as others standing nearly, simultaneously injured.I thus consider any serious rifle with a flat-crown muzzle to represent a significant safety issue.In most jurisdictions, muzzle brakes are unregulated [sorry NOT you NJ]. In some jurisdictions, flash hiders are prohibited, but muzzle brakes are still okay. In other, very restrictive areas, both are forbidden, and only flat-crown muzzles are allowed [yeah you guessed it…NJ]. Smith Enterprise Vortex Flash Eliminator 30 CalOften, just about the only way to positively tell the difference between a muzzle brake and a flash hider is to refer to the label on the box in which it came. When the manufacturer calls it one or the other, I guess that’s what it is.For those of us who use, keep, and train (for serious purposes) with rifles in 5.56×45, “recoil reduction” is a moot point! The rifle has scant recoil anyway, and “controlling it,” under even rapid fire, is a non-issue for most Operators.I know there are some competitive events (where participants are interested in impressing their friends, rather than their enemies), where even a minuscule reduction in recoil may provide a (mostly imaginary) “advantage,” and such things may thus be considered worth worrying about.However, in serious training, again it is all a moot point. For our purposes, it is bright muzzle flash that is the real “deal buster.”Bright muzzle flash reveals to the enemy the shooter’s exact position, and it is disconcerting to the shooter himself. The lower the ambient light, the more harmful the effect. Accordingly, serious rifles in 5.56×45 caliber need an effective flash hider that is designed to do nothing but attenuate muzzle flash. There are several available, and they are highly recommended. The “vortex” style works best, without adding much weight, nor bulk.For serious rifles in 7.62×51 caliber, felt recoil and muzzle rise are significant issues for some Operators.For these rifles, I still want a competent flash hider. However, as mentioned above, some “combination” devices do a pretty credible job in both areas, though far from perfect in either. The KTC Stealth Brake tops the List. Again, it is efficient, without a lot of weight and bulk. KTC STEALTH BRAKEFor combat rifles in 7.62×39 (Soviet), again felt recoil and muzzle rise represent a tactical challange. The lighter the rifle, the higher the effect.Serious, fighting rifles need to provide the Operator with every advantage possible.All three calibers mentioned, particularly from minimum-length barrels (which we prefer for overall “handiness” they contribute ) will generate significant and dangerous muzzle flash, which must be all but eliminated if we plan on living through our next battle.Significant “launch signatures” represent the kiss of death!/JohnAbout John Farnam & Defense Training International, Inc As a defensive weapons and tactics instructor John Farnam will urge you, based on your own beliefs, to make up your mind in advance as to what you would do when faced with an imminent lethal threat.

Testing The Alien Gear Backpack, Ankle, Hook & Loop Holsters

John reviews some of the most popular accessories to fit the Alien Gear Shapeshift Holster system. Alien Gear Holsters ShapeShift Core Carry PackU.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Holsters come in all different shapes and sizes. Holsters also have tons of different uses. I use my go to IWB concealed carry holster at the 5 o’clock position or my OWB concealed carry holster at the 3 o’clock position. I am always up for trying something new and thanks to Alien Gear I was able to try out new carry positions.Alien Gear sent me several accessories for my ShapeShift holsters. The Alien Gear ShapeShift Holster is a modular holster system. With tons of accessories, you can use the holster in many different ways to carry your pistol.Alien Gear accomplishes this feat by making the shell of the holster removable from whatever accessory that the wearer is using to carry their gun. I received the ShapeShift starter kit a while back to review, and I have also reviewed the ShapeShift drop leg system. There are tons of ways that a person can wear a holster with the system.Alien Gear ShapeShift Backpack Carry Expansion Pack Attached with the Alien Gear ShapeShift Backpack Carry Expansion Pack.The first accessory that Alien Gear sent me was their ShapeShift Backpack Carry Expansion Pack.To be upfront, I am not a big fan of off the body carrying of a firearm, but I also get why some people are for carrying a gun off their body. There is no one correct way to carry a gun and the user needs to find the way that works for them.Off body carry is very popular with hikers. That extra weight of a gun feels lighter when it is attached to a backpack rather than to the hikers waist, and when hiking for miles into the woods over rough terrain, it is just more comfortable at the end of the day. If a person isn’t comfortable when carrying a gun then they will be less likely to carry one at all.Also, hunters use off body carry so that their pistol will not get their way when sitting in a blind or for quick access in bear country. It is also more comfortable for the hunters just like it is for the hikers. These are the gun owners that Alien Gear is targeting with their ShapeShift Backpack Holster.The way that a user attaches the ShapeShift Backpack Holster to their bag is by using a plate that has a lever on the back and a clamp on the front. What this lever does is tighten the plate down to the strap of the user’s backpack.Alien Gear also included two lock pins on the plate of the ShapeShift Backpack Carry. This added security gave me extra confidence in the fact that the holster wouldn’t come loose causing me to drop my gun.When I put the ShapeShift Backpack Holster on my bag, there was no movement at all. It held stable to my bag. The shell connects to the plate via the Alien Gear ShapeShift button, which is their take on the quick release.One of the most significant advantages on the included quick release button is that it allows the user to transfer the shell from one Alien Gear product to another product easily. This is also a huge advantage of modular holster systems like the Alien Gear ShapeShift holster.If you have the Alien Gear ShapeShift car mount, then you could easily move the gun in the shell from your backpack in the car mount. This movability is one of the biggest strength of a modular holster system and the reason why modular systems are becoming popular in the firearms world.The nylon straps of the ShapeShift Backpack Holster are thick straps and high quality. The strap of the backpack holster wraps around the strap of the user’s backpack allowing the user to secure the holster to the bag. The polymer material of the ShapeShift Backpack Holster mount is sturdy and made using an injection molding method. It seems to be able to take quite a beating, which is perfect for anyone that spends time hiking through rough terrain.The one thing I don’t like about the ShapeShift Backpack Holster is the optional thumb retention button. In the past with the Alien Gear ShapeShift drop leg holster I had issues dropping the magazine of my Glock when trying to use the retention button.I am not sure if the problem with the ShapeShift holster’s thumb retention button exists with other guns besides Glock. Other than that, Alien Gear did a great job the ShapeShift Backpack Holster. It is well built and works for its purpose.Alien Gear sells the full ShapeShift Backpack Holster kit for $49.88. If the user already owns a ShapeShift holster then they could just by the expansion kit for $23.88ShapeShift Ankle Carry Expansion PackThe second item Alien Gear sent me was the ShapeShift Ankle Carry Expansion Pack. This kit wasn’t a complete holster. To use this, the wearer must purchase a ShapeShift shell for their gun or buy the whole package.The expansion pack runs $37.88. If the user wants the whole kit with a shell, it will run them $61.88. It is a little on the pricey, but is one of the best ankle holster builds that I have seen.Since a Glock 19 is a little too big to ankle, I used my Glock 43. The thing I was most worried about was that the gun and holster would be too big to ankle carry. For full disclosure, this is only the third ankle holster I have owned.Alien Gear made the two ankle wraps of the holster out of CoolVent neoprene. The other ankle holsters I have tested were made out of leather or cloth. The neoprene was a far superior choice to the other materials I have tested in the past.The leather ankle holster I have used had a break-in period, which was a bummer because it was not ready out of the box. I had to use a leather softener on the ankle strap to get it to fit my ankle, but with the neoprene it was ready out of the box. The zero break-in time is a massive advantage that the neoprene have over leather. Cloth also didn’t have a break in time, but it wasn’t as comfortable as the neoprene. Also, the cloth left my ankle sweaty and irritated. I didn’t have the same issue with the neoprene that Alien Gear used in the ShapeShift Ankle Holster. It was a more breathable material.I was worried that the ShapeShift Ankle Holster would slide down on my calf since the holster didn’t come with any type of calf strap to help hold it up. To my surprise, it didn’t move around. The upper strap has a polymer spine that eliminates the need to any calf strap, and it actually works.This holster was incredibly comfortable. I can see using the ShapeShift Ankle Holster for a backup gun. Alien Gear did a great job with the level of comfort of the holster.ShapeShift Hook & Loop Holster Alien Gear ShapeShift Hook & Loop Expansion PackThe final item I received from Alien Gear was the ShapeShift Hook & Loop Holster. This item is the item that I was most intriguing to me because it had an immediate use.The ShapeShift Hook & Loop Holster is a two-part system. The first part is a landing pad that sticks to almost any surface using an adhesive backing. Alien Gear covered the front of the pad with VELCRO.The second part is a pad that the ShapeShift shell attaches to by the user. Alien Gear also covered the back of the pad with VELCRO. This design allows the user to transfer the holster to any other landing pad. The system comes with three (3) landing pads.The reason why I was so interested in this item is that I wanted to attach a holster to the bottom of my desk and put a holster in my car. What was stopping me was that I didn’t want to drill holes in my desk or my car. I was afraid it would hurt the resell value of my stuff.The landing pads that Alien Gear included in the package really worked well. I attach one to the wooden bottom of the desk, and it really held on my desk. The user will have to wait 24 hours before attaching the holster to the landing pad to give the adhesive time to cure. I removed one of the landing pads after I installed it, and it didn’t leave a mark on my desk.I attached the remaining landing pad in my car. It was attached to plastic and held up well. I pulled the holster from the landing pad on both my desk and car about 50 times each to see if the landing pad would become loose. It did not. Alien Gear claims that the holster has been tested by being removed from the landing pad up to 2000 times without becoming loose.I was expecting that the Alien Gear landing pad would become loose, but it stayed solidly connected to the bottom of my desk and the side of my car. It met my needs for a desk and a car holster to a tee.The price for the ShapeShift Hook & Loop Holster is $45.88. Alien gear does sell extra land pads for $3.88. If you already own the Alien Gear ShapeShift holster kit, then you could buy the Hook & Loop expansion kit for $29.88.I liked the Backpack Holster. I will not be using it on a daily basis, but I will probably use it while hiking and camping. It does indeed hold steady and takes the weight off my waistline.The ankle holster is nice, but I don’t really like ankle carrying. If I need my gun I want it as fast as possible. Pulling it from my ankle seems like it would take too long. For a backup firearm it would be fine, but not for a primary carry piece in my opinion.Out of all three items, the ShapeShift Hook & Loop Holster is the one I liked the most. It helped me install a holster under my desk and in my car without permanently altering my stuff. The only thing that stopped me from mounting a holster in my car before getting this item was the prospect of having to drill holes in my car, and thanks to Alien Gear I didn’t have to drill into my dash.Readers can find more about Alien Gear at www.aliengearholsters.com.About John CrumpJohn is a NRA instructor and a constitutional activist.

Derespina Model 10 Production Karambit Knife Review

Category : Gear , Mike Searson

Custom knifemaker, Richard Derespina recently sent us one of his production Derespina Model 10 Karambit knife for a test and evaluation. Derespina Model 10 Production Karambit ReviewUSA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Custom knifemaker, Richard Derespina recently sent us one of his production models for a test and evaluation. The Derespina Model 10 represents an inexpensive and highly usable fixed-blade karambit that makes for a great self-defense knife.What is a karambit?The karambit is a small curved-bladed fighting knife that was developed in Indonesia and the Philippines and has a dedicated following in the tactical and martial arts communities. Most custom knife makers and production companies produce a variant of this knife.From a tactical point of view, the karambit’s greatest strength is retention. Obviously, this is with regard to the versions that have a ring and the user has either their small finger or forefinger inserted in the ring. When gripped in such a manner, the user does not have to worry about dropping the knife in a fight or losing it due to wet or slippery hands. In a similar manner, the user can still pick up or use other objects if necessary without having to re-sheath, re-pocket or lay down their knife. Derespina Model 10 in Kydex SheathAfter retention, the karambit’s next great asset is its ease of use. When gripped and indexed properly, the karambit acts as an extension of the user’s hand. Striking with the karambit while held in the reverse grip is more like throwing a punch as opposed to a typical knife slash or stab.This ties into the speed factor and when configured properly a karambit can be an extremely fast knife to deploy. Some fixed-blade karambits are carried in front break kydex sheaths so the user grabs the handle and pushes forward to deploy it as opposed to drawing it up or to the rear like a typical knife.I have been enamored with the karambit for close to 20 years and one series of models that deeply impressed me were those made by custom knifemaker Richard Derespina. Derespina Model 10About Rich Derespina Richard DerespinaRichard Derespina made (and still makes) some of the most stunning custom karambits I have ever seen.Rich started tinkering around with making knives in 1999. Soon after he started posting pictures on a knife forum of his very rough, hand tooled work.These knives were made from BG42 steel and he profiled them with a Dremel, a small bench grinder, hand files and sandpaper. At the time he was working as a Knife sales person at a well-known Sporting goods store in New York City, before they went full retard on their knife laws.In 2001 he was talking with the Strider guys about karambits and showed them a few of his pieces. A rep from tadgear.com was there and liked his knives; so the rep bought 3 pieces and thus began his custom knifemaking career.“I had an extensive knife collection back in the 90s”, Derespina says, “In order to really get into knife making I sold the majority of my collection to fund a real Bader grinder, media blast booth, drill press, and all the supplies necessary”. To this day he uses those very same machinesHe branched out into other knife styles but maintained a specialty in both karambits and Kris blades. His interest in those styles came from his experience with the Martial arts, specifically Kali and some JKD (Jeet Kune Do).“My study of some martial arts throughout the 90s got me exploring the various weapons and weapons systems of Asia. However, I noticed a few design flaws that in our era could easily be adapted to those ancient weapons. Ancient weapons made with modern techniques and modern more user-friendly design attributes as well as modern materials”.The Derespina Model 10 Karambit Based on one of his custom models, the Derespina Model 10 is 6.5” overall and 0.21” thick with an ergonomic grip and full-size retention ring; it includes a custom ambidextrous hard sheath that provides around-the-neck or inside-the-belt carry options.The factory edge was sharp, but I made it a little sharper with our Spyderco sharpening system and the blade tore up everything I threw at it from paper to aluminum cans.It was a bit tight in its factory sheath, but hopefully this will loosen slightly over time.Some folks like positioning the karambit sheath close to their carry holsters for a quick back-up weapon. Others prefer the opposite side of the body for defense against a gun-grab. Lastly, you can run a dog tag chain through the mounting holes in the sheath for a quick access neck knife. Derespina Model 10I like the roomy full 1” ring of the hole. Some manufacturers make the ring a bit too small for most users, especially if the user is wearing gloves. I found this one to be just about perfect gloved and ungloved.Fast in the hand and made from one of my favorite blade steels (D2) that holds a razor sharp edge, this knife is a winner. You can’t beat the $99.95 price point either.Derespina Production Model 10 Karambit SpecsOverall Length:    6.5″ inBlade Length:    3″ inBlade Thickness:    0.21″ inBlade Material: D2Blade Finish:    SatinEdge Type:    Single EdgedHandle Length:    5″ inHandle Material:    G10Handle Thickness: 0.53″ inHandle Color:    BlackWeight:    6ozSheath:    KydexMSRP: $99.95About Mike SearsonMike Searson’s career as a shooter began as a Marine Rifleman at age 17.

Buck 55 Folding Hunter : A Small Knife With Big Possibilities

David lets us in on the secret of the little-known baby brother of the classic Buck 110, the Buck 55 Folding Hunter Knife. Buck 55 Folding Hunter KnifeUSA – -(AmmoLand.com)- A while back I did a review of the Buck 110 knife model, which for a long time has been my everyday knife, and it does all the chores I can ask of it and has held up without fail.But there are times when carrying a knife of its size isn’t always convenient, especially during the warmer summer months, but I would be darned if I would be without a blade of some kind. So I decided to go with the 110’s little brother, the Buck 55 Folding Hunter Knife for a while to see how it lives up to the name.Buck 55 Folding Hunter KnifeIf you look at the Buck 55, it looks exactly like the 110, only shrunk. To put it plainly, it seems someone made the bigger knife Hobbit size. The blade on the 55 is 2 3/8,” and the knife is only 3 3/8” long closed. Compare this with the 110 having a blade that is 3 3/4” long and is 4 7/8” closed. But the real difference is the weight; the 55 weighs only 1.9 oz. while the 110 weighs 7.2 oz. The 55 is nice if you want a knife you can drop in your pocket and carry all day long without wear and tear on you.So carry it I have, I put the 110 away for a few months and have been toting the little 55, and you know what, I like it—a lot. I have done everything I would normally do with the 110 with it’s smaller sibling, and it does it well. One thing I will tell you about the 55, is it’s sharp, deceptively sharp. The first time I used it I almost carved off a finger had I not been careful. Buck 110 knife (top) vs. the Buck 55 Folding Hunter KnifeThe blade of the Buck 55 is made from 420HC, and it holds an edge like you would expect on a more expensive knife, I know because with all the work I have done with the 55 I haven’t even begun to dull it yet. It’s hard to list all the everyday chores I have done because I use a knife so often it’s hard to remember them all.I know I have cut rope and cloth for making scrap rags, opened bags of soil and more things I can’t remember. I have even used the 55 to clean some large fish. I had a harder time doing that, not because the blade wasn’t up to it or because of how sharp it is, but it was just too short compared to a regular fillet knife. If you had nothing else though, it would get the job done if you take your time. When I used it on a rainbow trout though, it did as great job as you could want it to do. The little Buck 55 Folding Hunter Knife works for about everything you can think of when you don’t need the bigger knife. Buck 55 Folding Hunter Knife works excellent on small trout.For years I carried a Schrade Uncle Henry folding knife, and the Model 55 reminds me a great deal of that folder. It’s not huge, it’s not wildly exotic looking, it doesn’t have fancy cutouts in the blade and serrations, which is all that fine if you want it, but this knife doesn’t need it. For a traditional knife that you can appreciate, this is all one would ever need. If I didn’t have the Buck 110 and weren’t so used to it, I would probably carry the little 55 all the time. You could certainly do worse.The little Buck 55 might get dismissed by some because of its size, don’t be in such a hurry to do so. It’s everything in a pocket knife you could need without all the frills and dressings you don’t. It’s a quality American made knife, and you get Buck’s Forever Warranty all in the bargain. The Buck 55 Folding Hunter Knife has an MSRP of $66 (less $ online), but you can shop around and find them for less. It’s well worth the money.amzn_assoc_placement=”adunit0″;amzn_assoc_search_bar=”false”;amzn_assoc_tracking_id=”ammoland-20″;amzn_assoc_ad_mode=”manual”;amzn_assoc_ad_type=”smart”;amzn_assoc_marketplace=”amazon”;amzn_assoc_region=”US”;amzn_assoc_title=”More Buck 55 Styles”;amzn_assoc_linkid=”58d54f2aad3054f664375586db448817″;amzn_assoc_asins=”B07CMFHZ9Y,B000EHWWIW,B002KB8HL6,B000EHYZKK,B000EHUYTQ,B000EHUYNC”; David LaPellAbout David LaPellDavid LaPell has been a Corrections Officer with the local Sheriff’s Department for thirteen years.

Accu-Tac FC-5 QD Bipod – Review

Accu-Tac FC5 QD BipodU.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Bipods are a very personal choice for shooters. Some prefer the tried and true Harris style bipods while others go for something a bit out of the norm. While there isn’t anything wrong with the old school Harris bipods, there are some shooting sports like F-Class or Extreme Long Range Shooting that the tried and true Harris isn’t ideal for.My first experience with the Accu-Tac FC series bipods was at an extreme long range shoot where Brad Stair, Charlie Melton, and other guys from a team that Ritter & Stark had put together. The objective of the shoot was to break the world record for a factory rifle shooting factory .338 Lapua Magnum ammo. During that particular shoot, I was able to land a hit on a 40″x40″ steel plate at 2,600 yards twice out of 5 shots taken with a Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR and the Accu-Tac FC series bipod.Features & First ImpressionsWhen the Accu-Tac FC-5 QD was delivered, I was elated to see that the bipod comes in a very nice box that would have protected the bipod even if it were dropped from the Empire State Building. While that isn’t something that impacts the performance of a product, I love seeing companies take pride in how they deliver the product to the consumer.The bipod is made from 6061 T6 aluminum, has a height adjustment that ranges from 5″ to 8.5″ and the stance ranges from 15″ to 17.5″. Accu-Tac finishes the bipod with a Type III hard coat anodizing, the whole package weighs in at 26.5 ounces.The Accu-Tac line of bipods all features the same notched leg system that allows the shooter to adjust not only the height of the front of the rifle but also adjust the rifle cant in rough increments. The notches in the legs offer rough elevation adjustments.The legs are kept in place with spring-loaded latches that interface with ratchet cutouts on the retractable legs. The spring loaded latch keeps the height adjustment locked down.While the Accu-Tac FC-5 QD doesn’t have a tilt feature built-in, it does have a panning head that allows for roughly 45-degrees of travel. The QD attachment on the bipod requires the panning head to be turned to the extreme limit in order to open the lever enough to remove or install the bipod. The FC-5 QD has a QD mount like you might expect from the name.Once you get the rifle on target, you can lock the bipod in place by tightening the locking lever. The pod lock on the bottom of the bipod locks the pan in place when you are on target.If rubber feet aren’t your jam, Accu-Tac also offers spiked feet that allow you to load the heck out of the bipod when shooting on softer surfaces. Optional spoke feet make getting a good purchase easy.Unlike the old Harris style bipods, the entire Accu-Tac bipod line uses the same pull to unlock hinges that allow you to set the angle of the legs to 5 different angles. The FC-5 QD has 5 positions the legs can be locked in.Range TimeWhile I have been using the Accu-Tac FC-5 QD bipod for the last six months when zeroing rifles, all of the images I have on hand are from the ELR shoot in New Mexico.So why is the FC-5 QD preferable to the more traditional bipods? Simply put, the bipod not only provides a wider footprint without raising the rifle too much but it also places the apex of the bipod legs above the barrel rather than just below it. The wider profile of the FC-5 QD offers a more stable shooting position.As long as I don’t need to make tilt adjustments, the Accu-Tac has been my go-to bipod. With the spiked feet, I can really load the bipod for recoil management and the FC-5 QD offers a ton more stability than the Atlas bipod I normally favor. More stability means tighter groups and less left performance left untapped due to a slightly unstable position.The FC-5 QD bipod is capable of handling most standard and magnum caliber rifles with ease thanks to its overbuilt construction. Even with a 14-pound rifle and optic mounted on top of the bipod, it felt stable as a rock. My dear friend Brad Stair of Performance Guns shooting at a 2,600-yard target.ConclusionThe only thing that would make this the perfect bipod is the inclusion of a tilt feature to help level the rifle out a bit more. While the HD-50 bipod from Accu-Tac adds that feature, it is a bit chunkier than the FC-5 QD.Overall I am very happy with the Accu-Tac FC-5 QD and will continue to use it when I need the most accuracy possible out of a rifle both at shorter zeroing ranges and when shooting extreme long range.The Accu-Tac FC-5 QD carries an MSRP of $430 if you would like to know more, visit the Accu-Tac website.About Patrick R.Patrick is a firearms enthusiast that values the quest for not only the best possible gear setup but also pragmatic ways to improve his shooting skills across a wide range of disciplines.
