The Troy MRF CX 12″ on a Colt 6920

In PART 1 we talked a little about our rail of choice for this project, and why features like “Anti-Rotation” tabs are necessary on weapon systems that we stake our lives on.  We received a brand new Troy MRF CX 12″ in the mail and, after reading the directions, began the installation process.   (Like we need directions…)     😀

Like we stated in part one, the Troy MRF we received is a two piece rail with a monolithic upper appearance (it fills the gap between rail and upper with material, in this case aircraft grade aluminum and rail).  This particular rail required me removing the Delta Ring, Weld Spring, and front sling loop and a little from the sides of the bayonet lug to provide a truly 100% free-float from the barrel nut forward.

Step 1. Prep

Saftey!!!!!   We double, tripple checked (Visually and Physically!) that the rifle was unloaded.  I also recommend removing the bolt from the upper to further reduce Continue reading

Troy MRF Rail Review PART 1: Overview

The Troy MRF Rail System:

Troy has always been a company I know that I can turn to for a quality product.  Yes, there are other great companies out there, but I feel Troy is among the better ones in regards to the build quality present in every product they make.  Their rear BUIS (Back-Up Iron Sight) is known throughout the world as one of the toughest folding sights in existence next to KAC and a few others.  So here are some thoughts on one of the rail systems they have to offer.   Continue reading

The Glock “Upgrade” No One Actually Needs

Glock maritime spring cups and standard spring cups

You may or may not be aware that there are actually two different versions of spring cups available for the firing pin installed in your Glock. One is the type commonly installed on Glocks in the factory and the other is called the “Maritime Spring Cup”. (Part# G3073)

A common misconception is that these cups are designed for Continue reading

BCM’s Gunfighter MOD 3 pistol grip

There are few things that feel worse to me than the standard A2 style pistol grip on the AR-15.  It is squarish, to steep of an angle, and just funky…

Enter the “Gunfighter”.   While our friends at BravoCompanyManufacturing may have an interesting flare when choosing product names, I will say that they make one hell of a product. Every piece of kit that bears their name (BCM for short) is of such a high quality, I find myself braggin around, letting people test it, and visiting their store front, in anticipation of new releases.  The Gunfighter MOD 3 (In Foliage Green) was one of the first carbine pistol grips I considered adding to every AR-15 I purchase in the future.  For $17 (there are other versions available at different prices) I feel it is a great value and offers a much needed upgrade for shooters that still have the A2 style grip installed.


the perfect carbine grip…

Besides the palm filling swell of the sides, and the nice high grip beavertail tang type design, but favorite feature has to be the angle.  Bravo Company took a more “straight down to the ground” approach with this grip and it its bottom is not angled back towards the user like so many other on the market.  This allows for a more natural positioning of the wrist when shooting.  I will also add that the semi-watertight area at the bottom is a great space for small parts and extra batteries.  This is just one of several designs and options available from BCM, and I would suggest a little research before purchase, as each design may fit your needs in a different way.
