The ArachniGrip Slide Spider is a perfectly cut piece of anti-slip grip tape. Affixed on a slide (such as the Glock in the image), it provides a significant increase in purchase when racking the slide. With the ArachniGrip Slide Spider, the serrations have gone from good to awesome. One thumb and one index finger can get enough purchase to rack the slide where you would normally want to use an entire hand to ensure a good grip.
The Slide Spider stays out of the way of most holsters and doesn’t catch on covering garments. ArachniGrip provides two grips per package retailing for $19.95, and it is available for a multitude of guns.

If precision is what you need, Bartlein should be making your barrels. Not only is this team made up of reloaders, shooters and hunters, but they also have a knack for precision most cannot even approach. They pride themselves on their uniformity and can carry a twist rate to the fourth decimal point. So if 1 in 11 is not quite perfect enough for you, try 1 in 11.3642. This might just make the difference between great and perfection. It’s up to you, but most rifling has variances due to the processes that manufacturers use. This simply does not work for Bartlein.

Defiance Machine’s new Deviant Elite is very similar to their popular deviant Tactical in some ways, but quite different in others. It shares in common the integral scope mount, available in zero, 10, 20, and 30 minute of angle, as well as the integral recoil lug. It’s all machined from pre-hardened aircraft certified steels with wire EDM cut lug ways and a one piece bolt machined from solid 4340 bar stock.
What’s different is the new enhanced firing pin that increases accuracy by reducing vibrations. The barrel thread tenon is extended by .850 inches, giving you more bedding surface and more barrel threads, this also allowed us to extend the scope mount an equal amount forward.
The Deviant Elite utilizes a sliding plate extractor on a coned bolt nose, which is part of the controlled round feed system, ensuring reliable feeding with a variety of cartridges.

Sanders Armory presents their U.S. Made, enhanced 6.5 Grendel (Type II) Melonite/Nitride BCG. SA’s enhanced BCGs have been tested and proven true with over 70,000 rounds, suppressed and unsuppressed, and are designed and manufactured as a true 70s mil spec US Army/Colt bolt carrier group. Sanders Armory’s craftsmen perform high-level work such as hand chasing the gas key tube I.D., hard turning the carrier bodies after heat treatment, and honing the internal areas to Mil Spec, and creating a proper cam pathway, and the proper cheese head screw, heads and crimps. And, because of the perfectly flat milling of the gas key foot, no gasket material is needed.
All of this and more has lead to a product designed to reduce carrier tilt/cant during recoil and increasing reliability by strategically relocating key bearing surfaces. The carrier has fewer points of contact with rails on top and bottom creating less friction and a slight increase in carrier mass as it extends dwell time and ensures proper gas pressures for reliable extraction.
Spinta Precision’s new Glock slides are made from 17-4 stainless steel, and are available in nitride, Cerakote or raw stainless steel finish. RMR cuts are available.

No more tedious parts to manage. Although the end cap is broached for an Allen wrench like the remainder of TBA’s designs, there is no Allen wrench required as you can use the factory magazine to disassemble the entire suppressor.
The monocore is constructed from 2024T351 aluminum and is Type III anodized for a lifetime of use. There is also a stainless insert in the rear of it that will not fatigue. Alignment on your weapon is easy with our new patent-pending “fast-attach 28” thread-mount system.

Bright Sights high-visibility gun sight coatings increase the contrast between the front and rear sights, and the contrast between the sights and the target. This improved contrast provides for quick sight alignment, faster target acquisition and allows for faster and more accurate shot placement. Bright Sights is a tough, durable coating that stays on firearm sights even under the extreme heat and vibration of rapid fire.
Bright Sights Ghost Glow is a light-activated substance that must be charged with light to glow in the dark. This can be sunlight, a light bulb or even the beam of a flashlight. The duration and intensity of the light will determine the time and intensity of luminescence. Ghost Glow is not intended to be a replacement for true night sights, but as an enhancement to our high-visibility gun sight coatings.
Ghost Glow coatings are not designed to be used alone, but as an enhancement to Bright Sights gun sight coatings. Best results are achieved by combining the two different coatings of the same color. A small amount of each coating should be mixed outside of each colored vial. The mixing ratio recommended is 75 percent Ghost Glow and 25 percent High Visibility Gun Sight Coating. Our products are made in USA, and dealer inquiries are welcome.
White Oak Armament
White Oak Armament Ruger Precision Rifle barrels have all the quality, innovation, and value you have come to expect from White Oak. They start with match-grade blanks and precision machine and chamber them to their unique specifications. Designed for ease of serviceability and customization, the Ruger Precision Rifle utilizes many parts and characteristics of the AR-15 platform. All White Oak Armament RPR barrels are designed to further enhance this unique characteristic. They incorporate an untapered section just forward of the chamber that is correctly sized to fit into readily available AR-15 barrel vise jaws, making barrel removal and installation even easier.
Additionally, the forward section of the barrel just behind the muzzle is straight as well, making it even easier for a gunsmith or machinist to chuck the barrel for cutting and crowning should you decide you want a shorter barrel.
These changes are virtually unnoticeable, but work to further enhance the versatility of the platform by allowing even easier optimization and customization of the platform for your specific application.
