Whether you like your tea in the harbor or your mole on la bait, or maybe you prefer some subtle liberty and freedom, either way you won’t get treaded on when you use the code TGC 10 to get 10% off your entire order over at 1776 United.com.
First we hit 125 thousand subscribers that is absolutely astonishing and I seriously thank you for trusting us as the source for gun related news. I also thanks to those that jumped over and supported us over the last week.
9-millimeter carbines are all the rage between 6 5 Creedmoor and pistol caliber carbines. I don’t know who would win a popularity contest. It’s not a surprise that more and more companies are focusing on pistol caliber carbine parts.
Enter a company called Foxtrot and Mike products. This is their new RTC or ready to customize lower for the 9 millimeter carbine. And it has a few interesting features. First up it is made mostly of polymer. You scoffed because polymer lowers are a problem for some of you.
They thought of that and utilized an aluminum rear insert that is molded into the lower. The entire buffer tube loop and below into the safety selector area contains that insert. This tackles the issue that concerns folks of the buffer tube impacting something external and snapping off of the receiver.
Beyond that and the overall look of the lower there are a couple of other things that stand out. The grip, for one, is designed like a grip of your normal pistol to accept an extra magazine. It has a normal button release on the side and all. I’m not sure it would be like the fastest way because you’re combining pistol and rifle mechanics. But it is still cool.
Last but not least, it’s ambidextrous except for the bolt catch. All of that for the price of a hundred and forty nine bucks. What do you think of this? Would you buy this over any of the other options that are on the market like New frontier armory, Angstadt or Quarter-circle ten? Would you get this FM over those?
In gundustry strugglebus news, not only are we all being threatened by looming gun control measures and a congress that passed fixed nix, but we are also now dealing with corporate America and their undereducated nonsense.
On March 22nd Citibank announced that they will be placing their own restrictions on their retail customers regarding firearms. The new policy says that businesses are fine as long as:
A.They don’t sell firearms to someone who hasn’t passed a background check. I don’t know of a retail establishment that would do that.
B.They restrict the sale of firearms for individuals under 21 years of age. That’s right age discrimination
C.They don’t sell bump stocks or high-capacity magazines. And unlike the YouTube nonsense, this version of high-capacity magazines remains undefined. The people that control the funding implementing their own firearms discrimination and restrictions to circumvent the law.
I hope this plague does not continue to spread. At the same time though, this would be an opportunity for a bank to assert themselves as open to doing business with anyone and soak up the dollars from the gun industry.
On top of that, Reddit recently shut down a few subreddit such as r/gun deals and r/brassswap due to some new policies on the site. Essentially the policy says that you cannot solicit or facilitate the sale of firearms or ammunition among other things like stolen goods, drugs, prostitution, personal information and falsified documents.
Guns are being lumped in with illegal activity in this new reddit policy. I understand the fact that they don’t want people to be using the site for illegal activity but guns and ammo are totally legal to possess.
Why lump that in with all this other illegal stuff? For those of you that are unaware, reddit is one of the law aggregator sites. On the internet you could essentially find anything. The traffic generated from that site is staggering. You can’t even so much as mention a place to buy a gun without fear of getting banned. Law-abiding citizens being silenced.
In AR 10 News, a company called Doublestar has expanded their lineup of star 10b rifles with the addition of two new cartridges, the 65 Creedmoor and the 260 Remington. They’re calling them the start 10bx.
Breaking down the features on both rifles we’ve got a 22 inch stainless steel heavy barrel with a one and eight twist topped off with a big ol three chamber muzzle break. That is covered with a 15 inch Sampson 308 evolution handguard.
They both have the standard start10 receivers which includes that downward slope to the magwell and grip portion on the front. It’s weird-looking. They also come standard with a CMC three and a half pound trigger, a Hogue grip and an ace hammer stock.
All for the MSRP of two thousand five hundred and forty nine dollars. Don’t get me wrong. This could be a very nice rifle. Because I’ve never had the chance to mess with a double star but that price tag is almost as steep as that weird magwell.
I want to know what you think though. Would you rather build your own ar-10 or would you pony up and get one that comes from a reputable builder?
Brand CLP offers an entire lineup of non-toxic cleaners and loops for the discerning shooter. You can use their bore and bulk to clean up carbon, fouling or rust and then follow it up with their CLP or for hot and heavy applications the hog grease for before, during and after the range.

This time our gun tuber of the week was picked by you. It’s high time I let you decide who gets the title of gun tuber of the week and I think Mozzberg is going to lose his mind because he literally tells me to shout out this every single week.
We’re out on the range today. We’re talking about body armor. On your left is a 40 Smith & Wesson and on your right is the 357 sig. Obviously it would be irresponsible to put the body armor on somebody and then shoot them.
It’s time for the meet target. What we are going to do is to put the body armor on the meet target. I’m not a doctor. I don’t even play one on TV. But I can safely pronounce this patient dead. One of you will be the judge.
As body armor worth wearing, you are the judge. We have a new Amazon affiliate store as well as a link to purchase cool t-shirts and links to find us all over your favorite social media platforms. Thank you all for reading.
