What The New Guns And Gear:

Rival Arms ST-3X Precision Rifle Stock

GG Rival_1

Aiming to go long? Don’t ignore the buttstock. Creating consistency in how a rifle mounts to the shoulder and how the eye lines up to the scope, upgrading this stock feature definitely helps you go the distance. Designed for compatibility with AR-style rifles and chassis systems that utilize a buffer tube-style attachment, the stock works with a wide swath of firearms—and goes a long way to enhance the system. Fully adjustable, the stock allows shooters to dial in both length of pull and comb height to create a perfect and repeatable interface between shooter and gun. And, at 28 ounces, it’s more than manageable on most long-range rigs. MSRP: $236.99

McMillan Z-10 Bag Rider Stock

GG McMillan

Leave it to McMillan to level up bench shooters’ systems. Engineered for the utmost adaptability when shooting off bags, the aptly named Z-10 Bag Rider Stock is just the ticket when throwing lead from a solid, level surface. Among the high points of the system is a swept butt profile that better accommodates the use of a rear bag. Its geometry allows shooters to micro-adjust the elevation of the rifle more quickly, easily and precisely. Of course, the Z-10 also has all the other bells and whistles precision shooters expect, such as adjustable length-of-pull and cheek rise, thumb shelf and pistol grip. And it’s constructed from fiberglass, creating a rock-solid, flex-free platform from which to place shots. MSRP: Starting at $603

HEX Dragonfly

GG Hex

Competitive shooters have known it for decades and now the general public is catching on—red dots rule the roost. There’s no faster way to upgrade a pistol’s aiming system than adding reflex optics, and Hex makes it more affordable than ever. Boasting a near entry-level price, the Dragonfly doesn’t compromise one bit, offering a reliable, battle-ready optic. Projecting a bright 3.5 MOA dot, the aluminum-body optic proves lightning fast on target acquisition and transition, and it delivers a crystalline sight picture thanks to scratch-resistant, anti-glare glass. The fully adjustable brightness setting gives the Dragonfly the ability to adapt to any situation, and a 16-hour auto-off feature prevents draining its battery. MSRP: $249

Remington 870 +2 Magazine Tube Extension Kit


Be it home defense or competition, it’s always good to have plenty on tap in your shotgun. XS Sight bumps this up with its +2 Magazine Tube Extension kit, designed to work seamlessly with Remington 870 pump-action shotguns. The magazine tube extension kit includes a factory detent removal tool, a 45-inch Wolff 12-gauge extended spring and the +2 extension tube. The one-piece tube, made from hard-coat anodized 6061 aluminum, keeps a scattergun overall light, while also offering real estate to mount an accessory in addition to increasing capacity. MSRP: $80

Wilson Combat Multi-Caliber Magazine

GG Wilson

Switching mags to match calibers is a pain … and expensive. Wilson offers an elegantly simple solution—a universal magazine. Well, almost universal. Wilson Combat’s mag smoothly runs 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem., .300 Blackout and 300 Ham’r ammunition without fear of jamming or bulging the magazine itself. Holding 30 rounds, it also puts plenty of firepower in your hands. Designed with a nonslip polymer tube, anti-tilt follower and powerful spring, the mag will function reliably in the harshest field conditions. MSRP: $18.95

AR-15/M16 Barrel Vise Jaws

GG TL05_00

Get to a certain level of building or working on firearms and you’ll need to invest in specialty tools. Barrel vise jaws are at the top of this list. Utilizing two “V” blocks that clamp into a bench vise provides a solid base to work on an AR-15 barrel, whether you’re headspacing or installing a muzzle device. Compatible with most barrel profiles, up to 1-inch bull barrels, Luth-AR’s shop upgrade is versatile. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum, it’s very durable. By the way, the jaws aren’t anodized, so you don’t have to worry about scoring your barrel’s finish. MSRP: $29.99

DeSantis Gunhide Furious Flashlight Holder

GG Desantis

Eliminating the bulk and aptitude for ejecting from a pocket, DeSantis’ Furious Flashlight Holder rethinks how to tote a handheld light. Honestly, it’s genius in its simplicity. Taking a cue from modern holster design, the belt-attachable holder is made of form-fitting Kydex to keep your torch at hand and in place. Additionally, it offers some of the amenities found on top-notch pistol rigs, such as two-screw tension adjustment and safety features. In this case, the safety is a wide mouth that ensures the light won’t inadvertently get flipped on and drain its battery. Attaching via a powder-coated spring clip, the Furious is compatible with any belt up to 1¾ inches. MSRP: $38.99

X-Vision Optics RFP875 Rangefinder

GG X-Vision

Spartan as modern rangefinders go, there’s plenty to like in X-Vision Optics’ latest gadget. In particular, the price. Few and far between are ranging tools that do what they promise and come in under $250. So yeah, the RFP875 doesn’t link up to your scope to give it a shooting solution or measure wind movement downrange. What it does do is give you dead-accurate readings out 875 yards and incline compensation up to 90 degrees, plus simple two-button controls and 6x magnification. If you’re honest with yourself, that’s all you need the next time you go out to fill your tag. MSRP: $219

Adaptive Tactical EX Performance Tactical Light Fore-End

GG Adaptive Tactical

The age-old problem: How do you light up a pump-action shotgun? One answer, Adaptive Tactical’s lighted fore-end. Throwing blinding 300 lumens, the EX Performance provides more than enough light to illuminate any of the bumps in the night. And it offers some nice functions to boot, such as momentary on and rapid strobe, in addition to a continuous beam. Powered by two AA batteries and operated by an ambidextrous on/off switch, the light ups the level of the most popular pump-actions, such as the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870. Furthermore, the light is removable, revealing a 2-inch Picatinny rail, in case you want to run a laser sight instead. MSRP: $130

Fenix E18R

GG Fenix E18R_noShadow

It’s difficult not to like what’s going on at Fenix. The E18R is the perfect example. No bigger than a minute, the handheld torch is a second thought as an EDC option and is more than manageable to tote in a front pocket. Yet, the mighty mite punches above its weight, throwing an impressive light on a problem—750 lumens by Fenix’s telling. That’s not even getting into its strobe function and four brightness settings. But where the E18R really makes hay is that it’s rechargeable via a magnetic charger. For the minimalists out there, it ticks off all the right boxes. MSRP: $65

Sionyx Aurora Pro

GG Aurora PRO-side quarter

Full-color digital night vision? Let’s just say the Aurora Pro leaves its competition green with envy. Better yet, Sionyx’s flagship optic brings its game-changing tech to a wide audience, with a price tag a fraction of its competitors. So you lay your coin down what do you get, aside from technicolor nighttime? An impact and water-resistant NV system with the ability to film at 720p and an adjustable frame rate of up to 60 frames per second. A rechargeable power source and Pelican case are nice perks too. Overall, whether as a back-country insurance policy or something to level up your carbine, the Aurora Pro has it down pat. MSRP: $999

Nightstick TWM-30

GG Nightstick

Tailor-made for full-framed weapons, the TWM-30 doesn’t skimp in shedding light on the situation. It’s a big mother, no doubt, but worth every tittle of its 5.4-ounce weight, doling out an impressive 1,200 lumens of light. That’s enough to reach out to nearly 636 feet. It and its olive drab green twin, the TWM-30F, both feature law enforcement adopted single-motion switches for momentary and constant on. Yes, it has a strobe function too. And the gun light is made so you can beat the snot out of it, with an aircraft-grade aluminum body that’s IP-X7 waterproof and impact resistant. Nightstick’s new light is as legit as they come. MSRP: $130

Steiner TOR Mini

GG Stiner

Small as it is combat-worthy, the TOR Mini brings a whole different game to your pistol. First off, the laser-sight more than lives up to its mini moniker. The unit is just over 2 inches in length and 1 inch in width, which means it’s next to nothing even on a sub-compact pistol. Add to that a hard-anodized machined aluminum housing that makes it both dust- and splash-proof, and you have a system ready to stand up to your everyday abuse. Finally, direct diode-type lasers (both red and green) offer unparalleled dependability, giving you an aim point, even in frigid climates (something not all lasers can claim). Fully adjustable windage and elevation, righty-lefty friendly controls and compatible with weaver and Picatinny rails, the TOR Mini squeezes plenty into a small package. MSRP: $287
