magazine

haha oh man Waifu stuff cracks me up sometimes:

A two pack was $15 over at Weapons Grade Waifus.  Sorry to disappoint you, but it looks like they are sold out in all colors.

I’m thinking I need to collab with this guy, on some pulls looking like Kirkland brand tighty-whiteys with a streak mark on them. I jokingly also mentioned this on twitter and Instagram, and he replied:

The thought was nice, but without even checking, I’m 100% sure Magpul must have a patent on their eponymous product considering that’s essentially what vaulted them into being the company they are today. I wouldn’t tread on anyones intellectual property like that, plus I specifically love Magpul too much. Now if Magpul themselves wanted to do a limited edition, and give me and Weapons Grade Waifus a slice of the pie, I definitely would not complain.

Picatinny Arsenal know how to play the game to get the views:

From the video description:

The Army has begun fielding the new 5.56mm 30 round Improved Magazine that delivers a significant increase in reliability for the battle-tested M16 and M4 weapons systems. Bolstering the already high reliability ratings of the M16/M4 systems, the Improved Magazine effectively reduces the risk of magazine-related stoppages by more than 50 percent compared to the older magazine variants. Identified by a tan-colored follower, over 500,000 of the improved magazines have been fielded to units in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the U.S.

There are a few things I would tweak…. they definitely should have called the magazine a “clip”, rather then putting 30 round they should have put “30 bullet”, oh and 5.56mm should have been 5.56 inch.

Tru piehitters need to get up on this:

Ugggggggh well $20 over on ebay.  If the Meat Hammer baseplates weren’t stylish enough for you to grind up your hands on a reload, maybe these will suffice? 🤔

Interesting idea.  Lets people practice dry firing without having to rack the slide every time to reset the trigger:

This guy doesn’t like it much.  He talks about how it’s not identical to an actual trigger pull:

$99 on their website.  Seems kind of $teep to me.  I’m really surprised that someone (or Glock) hasn’t been able to develop some drop in solution that exactly mimics the stock trigger.  I’m not a huge fan of dry-fire-then-slide-racking, but I’m also not a fan of not having the exact same trigger pull… more because I’d be annoyed more than anything else.  I’m aware you can get “trigger reset kits”, but those aren’t exactly a easy fix because they require swapping of parts.

*sobbing* LOL somebody come get their girl:

This is how it works.

The quick pins and the mag drop are a combined price of $200 from Cross Armory.

Painful.  So painful.  Every time I see one of these California related products I piece of me dies.  I’m still on an IV recovering from the Bolt Action Glock conversion, and the magazine sidecar loader.

Thoughts?  You thinking of getting into this flaming dumpster of a market?

Full story over at Savannah Now

591 cartons at a value of $2.1M is a nice seizure.  Just like everything else, one has to wonder how much of this type of thing gets through.

So the issue was they called them “Glock Magazines” on the packaging, and not “Magazines for the Glock”.  A google image search as to what SGM brand packaging looks like seems to confirm that it was them, including calling them “Glock Magazines”.  It blows my mind that people are looking to save a few bucks and get a non Glock magazine.

Thoughts?
