rail

I give this a 1 sigh, 2 whatevs, and a grumble:

$400 on their website.  “Patented” too apparently.  People are always trying to corner every micro-niche in every market.  No one is copying your idea dude.  We made it from the Vietnam war era until 2017 where the technology to do this has been available.  It’s an obvious idea and no one else did it…. for a reason haha.

Thoughts?  When is the integrated bipod coming out?  The integrated optic perhaps? An integrated barrel?

Those springs and rails you sing about, bring em out:

If you want to skip to the interesting stuff, it starts at 2:05.

You can pick one up at ArkLaTex Tactical for $270.  What you’re getting is that rectangular piece with springs inside it, and a picatinny rail pictured below:

Recoil-Rail

It’s basically an Atkins Accelerator when used in conjunction with a Slidefire stockThe ATF didn’t like the Atkins Accelerator, I wonder what they think of this combo? 

The best part of the whole video was this tacticool derp MAC:

Recoil-Rail-Tacticool-DERP-MAC

Oh LAWD that’s just too impressive.  Needs more accessories on that top rail though!

Thoughts? 10/10 would operate with?  Anyone know the legality when used with the Slidefire?

Does the thought of empty picatinny rail space makes you sad?  DERP up your rifle!

A confidence boost knowing Buck Yeager approves whatever OP I’m currently engaged in:

Vigilant Spectre reminding me to “Stay Vigilant”, because sometime even the best of us forget:

You can pick from a lot of different snap-on options over at the Custom Gun Rails website for around $25.  *add witty internet nerd criticism about running the site on a subdomain and having nothing on the main domain, the fact they use a low end template and the navigation is shit, the company logo is some rookie lolz, and more general asshole-ish observations*

The above two examples are definitely what I’m going to write the company about sending me.

I’m really surprised Arm-Tape-Costa-Lupus hasn’t jumped on this bandwagon yet.  He could rep all sorts of operator brand logos during classes, getting paid just to show up.

One last thing, this line from the Custom Gun Rails website product pages kill me:

Our products have been deployed with Special Ops and conventional units all over the world and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Special Ops?  Guys, are you sure you didn’t mean Special Olympics?  I can’t see why special ops units would use something as frivilous as this.  Oh wait never mind… they probably have the BLACK OPS ones.

Thoughts?

Meh… I’m sure some of you guys will like it, but I can’t say I’m impressed.  Maybe if it didn’t look like a Portal style robot i’d be on board.

I’d prefer an AR-15 desk lamp made out of real parts any day over this perpetrator.  Plus if you get bored of the AR-15 desk lamp you can always just use the rail on another AR build.

At the time of writing this the project has 206 backers with $53712 out of the $70000 goal raised.  At first I was really surprised, but then I remembered the COWWADOOTY crowd. *facepalm*

You can check out the Kickstarter project page – HERE

Thoughts?  Agree with me?  Or are haters gonna hate?

Side note: I get a kick out of seeing the term “industrial design” used so frivolously nowadays. Good job description to drop to try and impress girls though I suppose. They’ll become wise to that and realize you’re just a standard nerd that knows his way around Solidworks by the end of date #1 though, and the joke will be on you. haha

A few days ago I posted some throwback 1985 pics of my state of the art VHS Camcorder mounted on the Strikemark Picatinny Rail Camera Mount.

The two random mount winners:

  • #61175 – USSMunkfish
  • #61164 – Dilhack

You guys will be contacted for your addresses soon.  If you have a bigger camera than I do, you gotta mount it and send me pics!

Thanks goes out to Strikemark for the mounts, and to everyone that entered!
