QUARTERMASTER FEATURING GUNS ALL-STARS! Tac-Grip MUSclecoMp Dave anDerson T ac-Grip has a new and very effective rifle compensator called the MuscleComp. The sample shown here is the 5.56 model on an AR-style rifle. There’s also a 7.62 model. Both are made in the USA. The MuscleComp is machined from 10-45 stainless steel. The 5.56 version is threaded to the AR standard 1/2x28 tpi. Assuming your AR barrel is threaded, installation is straightforward. If you don’t have the proper wrenches or knowledge it’s best to have a gunsmith do the work, which shouldn’t be particularly arduous or expensive. grabbed it and said, “This is great!”— and told me why outdoor sportsmen of all kinds would like it. The Stoplite STL-300J is a 700-lumen blinding-bright lightcannon offering both steady-beam and strobing function modes, plus a powerful red aiming laser, and weighs only 15 ounces. It can be used as a stand-alone handheld light or mounted as a vertical foregrip on the M1913 rail of a long gun. Rightside pushbuttons select the Steady and Strobe functions of the light and another serves as an on/off switch. Either function can be activated in Momentary mode by the big thumbsized pushbutton mounted on the rear of the pistol grip. roGerS’ SUperSToc for ar Dave anDerson ill Rogers is one of the most B innovative and intelligent people in the firearms industry. When I learned the current Colt collapsible stocks were a Rogers design I was sure it would be a well-designed and useful product. Collapsible stocks have many virtues. They adapt to different shooting positions and individual body size. They allow for more compact storage. The police SWAT guys I occasionally shoot with like the ability to use a regular stock length while wearing regular uniform, then quickly shortening the stock for use with bulky tactical gear vests and body armor. The MuscleComp by Tac-Grip is fitted on an AR by Wilson Combat. The comp does an effective job of directing powder gases to virtually eliminate muzzle rise, while the Wilson rifle’s superb 1/2-MOA accuracy was unaffected. A shooting buddy who is trained in building and maintaining AR rifles fitted the MuscleComp on a super accurate (1/2 MOA) Wilson Combat. Accuracy after installation of the comp was unaffected. The comp proved very effective in controlling muzzle rise. An AR in .223 doesn’t really have much muzzle rise, and high-speed photo sequences showed the MuscleComp virtually eliminated what muzzle rise there was. From the shooter’s aspect the sight picture shows no muzzle jump. On fast strings of fire speed is limited only by how quickly the trigger can be manipulated. The MuscleComp is well designed, well made, and it works. The price is $139.99. Tac-Grip LLC P.O. Box 1353, Dallas, GA 30132 (877) 800-9705 www.gunsmagazine.com/tac-grip Just imagine a sportsman, “feet wet” or “feet dry,” either lighting his way through the darkest night, or punching out a powerful, long-distance “rescue me!” beacon—especially set on “strobe.” The Super-Stoc was designed by Bill Rogers to combine adjustable length with the same stability as a fixed stock. The stock is designed to adapt to either mil-spec or commercial size buffer tubes, and is both light and strong. The STopliTe John Connor fter reviewing the Stoplite for A American COP Magazine, I casually showed it to a friend who fishes big lakes and hunts the high mountains. He’s not into “tactical,” but he The red aiming—and signaling— laser, fully adjustable for windage and elevation, is mounted on the left and controlled by a red button on the right. It can be operated independently or in tandem with the light. There’s even an accessory power receptacle so you can add, for example, an IR illuminator and/or aiming unit for use with NVGs—night vision gear. Four CR123 lithium batteries are stowed in the butt, yielding a long 8 hours of runtime at peak power. The grip has hand-filling ergonomic contours, and the rear portion is a grip-enhancing rubber overmold. The large rail-locking retention screw and quick-release bar provide fast, easy mounting and dismounting. The fit, finish and details are typically slick SIG SAUER, and it comes in a handy, lockable case. The price is $215, with a limited lifetime warranty.

Length of pull can be adjusted as quickly and easily as any other collapsible. If maximum stability is desired, say while sighting in or for a precision stock, simply click the cam-lock upwards. Not only does it work as advertised, it is light (7.3 ounces), designed so it can be fitted to either mil-spec or commercial-size buffer tubes, and very strong. The cam lock can be easily placed on either right or left side of the stock. It seems to be made to precise dimensions, as on the milspec buffer tube on my rifle there was very little play even before engaging the lock. The Super-Stoc currently retails at $78.95 from Rogers Shooting School, and is now standard equipment on most Colt AR rifles.
