Gear Review: JMT AR-15 80% Composite / Polymer Lower

TTAG’s readership is a well-informed crowd. So I’ll spare you an explanation of the purpose(s) of an eighty percent lower. I will say, however, that if you’re not making at least a portion of your (where legally permitted) DIY firearms each year you should strongly consider doing so. At the very least, it’s a great […]

Gear Review: CapArms Quiet Shuttle Tunable Buffer System

I’ve never met anyone who likes the sproing! Sure, there are those who, “Don’t mind it,” possibly because they know not their options.

Gear Review: JMT Saber Single Stage Drop-in Trigger

The drop-in trigger kerfuffle of last year all but halted the flood of new drop-in triggers for the MSR platform. Some companies scrapped their plans for new triggers. Others, like James Madison Tactical (JMT) kept pushing on, determined to see their original design (not a re-brand of another trigger) become a commercial reality . . . […]

3 Tips for Cutting Foam for a Custom Gun Case from LaRue Tactical

This month many of us received the first issue of the “LaRue Accuracy Report” in the mail. The report is LaRue Tactical’s new “digest for the discriminating rifleman,” as Mark LaRue puts it.
