Trends You Can Influence

The state of the gun industry rant: ON. Right now large gun industry entities are promoting and providing an outlet for non-rates (who probably should be classified as hobbyists) to shine and get undeserved attention. This provides a very negative effect on us as consumers. There are potential long term effects from the bad info these people share. Many of these Instagram/YouTube famous people are providing our community with wrong info and inaccurate insights. This is causing a snowball effect making impressionable people who have no business discussing insights with firearms think their voice too should be heard as a voice of authority. There is nothing wrong with entertainment, just don't confuse it with real sources of proven information. Remember how people compared all of the new training companies to McDojos years ago? Social media is the new place to gain clout and success through shares, hits, and views but not actual hard work and experience. Side affects include: -Special snowflakes that think their inexperienced opinion matters. -YouTube channels that are wastes of time. -Overabundance of Gun Bunnies. The worst part, the consumers of this drivel don't know any better and accept it all as fact. This is why we have

Magpul PMAG Gen M3

Magazine Design Philosophy, Testing, and Performance of Magpul Industries PMAG Magazines for the AR/M4/M16/HK416/M249 By Duane Liptak, Director of Product Management and Marketing, Magpul Industries. Director of Magpul Core, Magpul Industries Corp. Building feeding devices for firearms is not a new endeavor, and many materials and methods of construction have been employed for this task. For many years, conventional wisdom regarding magazine construction was that metal was the material most suited to the task. Although other polymer magazines were attempted previously (Orlite, et. al.), the Magpul PMAG became the first generally accepted all-polymer magazine for AR-pattern rifles after its release in 2007. Early military testing drew some criticisms with performance at sub-arctic temperatures and with window material chemical resistance (In the MagLevel window variant). Rumors, assumptions, and outright incorrect information from this early testing and initial evaluations still persist, despite 7 years of materials, manufacturing, and design improvements to the PMAG product line, and millions of fielded magazines in continuous combat use in the GWOT. Current and ongoing testing, both internal and through third parties can easily and thoroughly dispel these rumors and assumptions from any early data. What follows is an explanation of what the PMAG “is”, why it

Rumors Involving S3F

I was asked to write a post here by the Admins to address an issue or better yet a photo that has been floating around. More so because we support this group and many of you have our products in your Glocks. Let me be straight to the point. S3fsolutions has never and will never use another company's aftermarket barrel to relabel and put our name on. Period. We produce 100% of our barrels in house in our own machine shop. We have our own 5 axis machines, we broach in house and we hone in house. Our barrels are held to the highest of quality with QC being very important thing to us. If coating is wrong we fix it, if laser is wrong we fix it. if POI / POA shift is off, we replace the barrel. We are shooters building products for shooters.
