Tennessee Arms Company – The Ghost Gun Clear Stripped Lower Receiver

July 25th, 2014

This post was originally featured on Tactical Fanboy. It’s a transparent AR-15 lower receiver made from stabilized Nylon. We can definitely see the teaching and demonstration uses a product like this can offer.


Tennessee Arms Company is offering what they call the “Ghost Gun”, a clear stripped AR-15 lower receiver. Made from UV stabilized Nylon that is highly resistant to oils and lubricants, the Ghost Gun is a fully functional lower, although tnarmsco notes it is intended more as a teaching tool and for product showcase than for hard use. If anything else, it’ll definitely make for a great conversation starter at the range. Pair it with a transparent magazine or two for double the fun.

SureFire Introduces Two New 600-Lumen Fury Scout Light LED WeaponLights

July 24th, 2014

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire has expanded its signature Scout Light Series with the new M600P and M620P Fury Scout WeaponLight models. Both models feature SureFire’s newest high-performance LED, which produces 600 lumens and, thanks to a precision reflector, provides a wider beam with increased surround light, as opposed to the more-focused beam created by the TIR lenses found on most SureFire Scout Lights.


The new Fury Scout Light models’ wider beams are optimal for urban environments or up close engagements, where lighting a wider area is preferable. The M600P and M620P come with two included switches— a pushbutton tailcap switch: press for momentary on, press further to click constant-on; and a momentary-on tape switch with a 7-inch cable that attaches to your preferred location via self-stick Velcro® backing.


Compact, lightweight, and rugged, the new Fury Scout Light models are nearly identical to their predecessors. The new models’ bezels are only slightly larger in diameter at—1.37 inches—while their weatherproof Mil-Spec-anodized aluminum bodies measure 5.7 inches in length. The new Fury models produce tactical-level light (over 50 lumens) for 1.5 hours on two 123A lithium batteries. The M600P Fury Scout Light uses an integral thumbscrew clamp to attach to any MIL-STD-1913 rail. The M620P Fury Scout uses SureFire’s self-adjusting Swing-Lever™ clamp, which fits MIL-STD-1913 rails and even rails that are out of spec. Available in Black or Desert Tan.


Features & Benefits

• Virtually indestructible ultra-high-output LED generates 600 lumens of blinding light; produces tactical-level light for 1.5 hours on a set of batteries

• Surefire reflector provides a wider beam pattern, increasing situational awareness for close quarter operations

• Hard-anodized aluminum body, tempered window & O-ring seals make light rugged and durable

• Ergonomic tailcap and pressure-pad tape switching included

• Thumbscrew mount attaches quickly & securely to in-spec MIL-STD-1913 rails

• Powered by two 123A lithium batteries with 10-year shelf life

• Backed by SureFire’s No-Hassle Promise

TRU-SPEC Adds Two New Patterns From The MultiCam Family To Popular TRU Line

July 24th, 2014

Marietta, GA – July 24, 2014 – TRU-SPEC®, one of the leading suppliers of uniforms and personal equipment to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets, has added the MultiCam Tropic™ and MultiCam Arid™ patterns, developed by Crye Precision, to their popular Tactical Response Uniform selections, designed to meet the unique needs of Tactical Professionals, Law Enforcement and Special Operations personnel operating in high-risk environments.

MultiCam Arid Patrol Cap -3354

The MultiCam Arid™ pattern was developed to effectively reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in desert environments, which predominantly consist of open sand and rock. This particular palette compliments and overlaps portions of the main MultiCam® pattern; so pairing the apparel results in a well coordinated, functional concealment system.

MultiCam Tropic Patrol Cap -3355

The MultiCam Tropic™ pattern was developed to reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in dense jungle environments; areas that predominantly consist of lush vegetation that remains relatively unaffected by seasonal changes. Much like that of the MultiCam Arid™, the pattern’s palette compliments and overlaps portions of the main MultiCam® pattern; allowing for overlapping and coordination.

“TRU-SPEC® is thrilled to once again partner with Crye Precision and INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand team to expand our offerings of MultiCam® through our TRU line of apparel,” stated TRU-SPEC® Vice President of Marketing, Darrell Jacks. “We continue to offer all of our tier-one law enforcement, special operations and tactical professional units a line of trusted apparel that matches their performance in ensuring our safety.”

The MultiCam Tropic™ and MultiCam Arid™ patterns join TRU-SPEC®’s current offerings of MultiCam® and MultiCam Black™. The new patterns will be available through selected TRU-SPEC® dealers at the end of August 2014. Visit or to find a dealer near you.
