Lone Wolf Distributors announced the official release of its new Ultimate Adjustable Trigger, or UAT. The drop -in system – compatible with all Glock pistols — is guaranteed to elevate your personal shooting experience,” LWD officials maintain.

Does anyone know anything about the UAT? I thought Glock makes possibly the best pistol trigger out there.

Anyway, the UAT is easily installed and has an “innovative design” that is highly adjustable and eliminates trigger take-up and over-travel,” Lone Wolf officials maintain.

Army Ranger trainingArmy officials admitted the service doesn’t know as much as it should about its soldiers’ personal hygiene in the field even after Army programs have created antimicrobial treatments for socks and shirts.

The Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center wants to change that. In response, the center’s Consumer Research Team issued a survey for soldiers to figure how soldiers combat common afflictions in the field like jock itch, athlete’s foot and body odor.

The Army wants to know what works and what doesn’t so it can better develop future solutions for items like sleeping bag liners, t-shirts, socks and boots. [click to continue…]

mpa-image-e1416860452284MasterPiece Arms recently unveiled its new MPA 30DMG — the first “multi-caliber” pistol from the new Defender, Machined, Grip series — that accepts Glock magazines.

The 30DMG ships as a 9mm, using a Glock-style magazine; however, by changing out the grip housing, bolt and barrel, other calibers can be fired using this modular system. Additional calibers in 5.7x28mm, .40 S&W and .357 SIG kits will be available. MPA is working on adding the .45 ACP as a possible caliber and plan to have it developed potentially by SHOT Show 2015, MPA officials maintain.

Jay LenoFamous comedian and long time Tonight Show host Jay Leno has canceled his performance at the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Shot Show because he found out it’s a pro-gun forum.

“When it came to his attention that this was actually a pro-gun lobby show, he immediately cancelled his appearance,” Bruce Bobbins, spokesman for Leno, told MSNBC. “He found out that it was not what he was originally told it was, and he decided to cancel.”

Leno was scheduled to emcee Shot Show’s State of the Industry dinner on Jan. 20 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Shot Show is the largest annual gun show in the U.S., which attracts about 65,000 attendees. [click to continue…]

This official U.S Army photo shows how the service's new coyote-brown combat boots will look when worn with the new Operational Camouflage Pattern. Photo courtesy of Program Executive Office Soldier.

Next summer, soldiers will replace their desert tan combat boots with a darker, coyote-brown version. The photo above shows how the service’s new coyote-brown combat boots will look when worn with the new Operational Camouflage Pattern.

 

“To correspond with the introduction of the Operational Camouflage Pattern starting in the summer of 2015, the Army will change the color for the Army Combat Boot to a coyote brown color,” according to Thursday’s U.S. Army news release.

Army senior leaders selected the new OCP to replace the service’s ineffective Universal Camouflage Pattern after an exhaustive, four-year camouflage-improvement effort the service completed a year ago.

OCP is also known as Scorpion W2, a revised version of the original Scorpion pattern that Crye Precision LLC developed for the Army’s Future Force Warrior in 2002. Crye later made small adjustments to the pattern for better performance and trademark purposes and called it MultiCam.

The Army chose MultiCam in 2010 as its Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern for soldiers to wear in Afghanistan. OCP and MultiCam are very similar, but there are subtle differences between the two patterns.

Soldiers deployed to Afghanistan will continue to be fielded with uniforms and equipment in OEFCP, or MultiCam, until inventories are exhausted, the release states. In the coming months the Army will also conduct operational testing and user evaluations of existing service arid and woodland patterns for possible adoption by the Army.

Italian knife maker Fox Knives Military Division has a wicked new pig sticker.

The Modras dagger features a tan-coated, 7-inch N690Co stainless steel blade with a hardness of 58-60. It has a full-tang construction with a handle made from black and tan G10.

This is not a practical knife. It’s clearly designed for infantrymen and operators who want a killing blade.
