Holy dat count on the LaRue Tactical MBT-2S Trigger:

0:23 into the video we see that the total trigger pulls are allegedly at 127581, 129362 and 146485 and still going strong.  God I love a good testing rig.  I have no idea what the life is supposed to be on my standard no-frills AR-15 trigger group, but if it’s over 100k color me impressed.  Anyone know?

You can pick up a MBT-2S for $220 at LaRue.  Here are the details:

Sparing no expense, all major components are precision-machined from S7 Tool Steel. The result of this extra effort is a glass-smooth, hyper-consistent trigger that will satisfy even the most scrupulous competition shooter, but also be overly rugged for the battlefield. The MBT-2S breaks crisply at 4.5 lbs (2.5 lb first stage, 2 lb second stage) and has a smooth and positive reset. Made in-house, in Texas, in the USA.

Larue-Tactical*shrug* sounds good to me.  Does ARFCOM still pray to LaRue facing the South daily starting at 5:56:45 AM?

Doing things just to do them.

That rifle setup is worth in the ballpark of $6000-$7000 with the optic and mount haha.  At least they packed it well… that was a hard fall and bounce.

That drone looks like a DJI Inspire One too which I see goes for $2900, yikes.  You’d think they just could have bought a cheap drone off Amazon and saved some money.  Oh well LaRue probably makes half a million dollars off ARFCOM sales alone in a single day anyway.  When I used to go on there lots back in the day, people loved everything made by that company.

Larue-TacticalThoughts?  Does the LaRue Kool-Aid taste ever so sweet?

Some machine shop goodness from LaRue Tactical:

AR15-Barrel-Vibration-Dampener-BowjaxSome of you might find this type of thing boring.  I really like machining and automation, espeically when it’s firearm or clothing related.

No LaRue isn’t making barrel dampeners (pictured left)… yet.  Maybe they’ll be operator enough someday.

Thoughts?

Testing an AR-15 upper:

I don’t own anything by Larue Tactical (yet) but I’m told it’s really a notch or two above what you get from other manufacturers.  I don’t mind spending money if I’m going to get a better product, considering everyone and their grandma manufactures AR-15 receivers now.  Same goes for kydex holsters, everyone makes those now too I’m beginning to feel left out.

If you remember the A.R.M.S. vs Larue legal mess in 2009, this little “screw you” to A.R.M.S. was one of the reasons I fell in love with Larue Tactical in the first place.

As some of you know, Dick Swan from A.R.M.S is suing LaRue Tactical

“for using the numerals 1 and 7 in our LT-170 mount part number. He filed for and last spring outrageously got a trademark on “#17″ and then he sued us.”

In that AR15.com thread, Mark Larue generously offered to replace ANY broken A.R.M.S. mount with a comparable mount of his own.  FOR FREE!

I thought that was just plain awesome.. but it gets better.

We are hereby offering to replace any A.R.M.S. mount that the owner intentionally breaks the M.I.M. lever off.

As you can imagine, the response is huge!
