Magpul recently announced that it will be diving into the AK realm with its new line of AK mags. I got wind of the news and went out to their website for some information here it is straight from Magpul:

”The Magpul PMAG 30 AK MOE is a 30 round, durable, lightweight, high reliability polymer magazine for 7.62×39 Kalashnikov pattern firearms. This will be the first installment of the Magpul AK magazine line. The AK MOE will be an all-polymer design, utilizing the same advanced materials and manufacturing processes as the rest of the PMAG line to achieve surprising durability. It features a removable floorplate, constant curve geometry, and high-reliability/low-friction follower for the performance you expect from a PMAG. Due to the interface of rifle and magazine in the Kalashnikov platforms, and the leverage that critical points must withstand, we knew we couldn’t leave well-enough alone with the AK MOE before we even started designing. Also currently in development, and arriving on the heels of the AK MOE, is the next release in the PMAG AK lineup, which will be a 7.62×39 magazine with a little more “Bulgarian” in it, featuring solid steel reinforcements at lockup points. MSRP is to be announced.”

I found this review online from the Military Channel and I have to agree with most of what he said. I have one mounted on a Ruger American Rifle Chambered in 30-06 and it is a great scope for the money. I would definitely put it in the same class as a Nikon but I still think that the Luepold has better clarity and high quality glass. You can see some actual pictures of the scope on my firearm and some previous blog posts.

There has been some talk by the TSA of allowing certain size blades on flights again but in the wake of the Boston Bombing that has been placed on hold but I thought I would shed some light on a really nice blade that would fit the bill for such an application. These are made in the USA and are high quality steel. You can read more on their Facebook page. Surprising that Facebook allows such products given their liberal mentaly, I don’t support such business practices. I have a few of their knives and they are great high quality tools.

Liking Leupold products already, Redfield was acquired by them recently and I think for the price point at which they offer most of their gear is reasonably priced. I just recently bought a optic ready Stag AR so really been shopping around as to what to mount on it. I like the Redfield Battlezone scope at the $199.00 price point and also this offering. My father has a AR with a Nikon P223 and it is a great scope for the money but I try to get variety so that we don’t have the same products. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Bushnell Fullfield II but I have looked through them and honestly they don’t have the clarity that the Nikon, Luepold, or Redfield offers. Availability in April of 2013.

Product Specs From Redfield’s Website:

· Mounting the CounterStrike on the rail of your MSR/AR is as easy as tightening the nut. Rock-solid under fire and fast, repeatable mounting/dismounting.

· The CounterStrike offers precision 1/2-MOA click adjustments (slotted for screwdriver or coin) for windage and elevation. Knob covers are tethered to prevent loss in the fiel

· A powerful, integrated visible laser sight lets you engage targets in an instant from almost any position. User selects “on/off” mode for laser.

· Battlezone features our fully multicoated lens system to reduce light reflection and diffusion. With maximum light transmitted to your eye, you get a bright, crisp image in all lighting conditions.

· CounterStrike is built to take on the elements, no matter how bad they get. Completely sealed and nitrogen-filled, the CounterStrike is totally waterproof and fog proof.

· The illuminated reticle and laser of the CounterStrike is powered by a readily available CR-123A battery. Runs up to 5,000 hours on lowest setting and up to 500 hours on highest setting (does not include running of the external laser).

· The CounterStrike features a user-selectable 4-MOA Red/Green Dot reticle in combination with a base-mounted laser. Eleven different illumination intensity settings (including night vision) give you the flexibility to adapt to all shooting/lighting conditions.
