Most of us at some point or another have wished for a third or fourth arm. Nowhere is this as true as with firearms maintenance.

SWFA SS 3-15×42 Rifle Scope

We just got a heads up on a new rifle scope coming from the folks at SWFA. The new SS 3-15×42 is based on the the previous fixed power designs. The resemblance to the 10x, 12x and 16x SS models is obvious.

Features include:

  • Front Focal Plan Reticle
  • 0.1 mRad Turrets
  • Side Parallax Adjustment
  • 3-15x Magnification Range
  • 42mm Objective
  • Mil-Quad Reticle

Pricing is $699.95 and will be available for purchase April 25th!

Our T&E just arrived and we can’t wait to get it mounted up!

Bushnell LMSS 8-40×60 Spotting Scope First Look

Pre-Production LMSS at Rockcastle Shooting Center

The BBT (big, brown, truck) graced us with its presence yesterday and left a box from Bushnell Outdoor Products. Inside was a brand spanking new 8-40x60m Lightweight Modular Spotting Scope. I was so excited that I broke out the camera and actually shot an unboxing video.

We don’t usually do “unboxings” because I am dubious of their value to the consumer. When I “unbox” something, it’s pretty obvious that I have little experience with that actually product. This isn’t really true with the LMSS.

We got a chance to play with the pre-production version of the LMSS at a Bushnell hosted event at Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, Ky. I have used several different “tactical spotters” from several different manufacturers. This was the first I have seen in awhile that actually got me exited. You can take a look at our previous comments about it from the Rockcastle shoot here.

As soon as we get some time behind it and a some shots through it, we will run a full review. Everything about this scope screams “quality” and we can’t wait to field it.

LAW Tactical AR Folding Stock Adapter

While at the 2013 SHOT Show we got a chance to take a look at a very innovative new AR accessory from LAW Tactical. It’s called the AR Folding Stock Adapter.

The currentĀ version is labeled as “Generation 2” but in fact the copy we just received has more improvements from the one seen at the SHOT Show. Law originally had a flush cupĀ receiver machined into the bottom of the adapter. They have now updated that with a steel insert. This should add some service life to the part as well as increase the amount of force needed to rip a sling from the weapon.

We just pulled the adapter out of the Mailbox yesterday. Keep an eye out for the installation notes and full review, coming soon!
