Dakota Tactical DTAC Handguard System For HKs

Dakota Tactical has been acknowledged as a leader in the H&K roller-lock market since their inception, and their new release of the DTAC M-LOK and KeyMod handguards (from $143.99) has taken the company’s dedication to this platform to a whole new level.

Dakota HandguardThe DTAC MHS replaces the existing handguard on most roller-lock HK-style firearms—from the MP5 to the HK91—adding either M-LOK or KeyMod attachment points, and allowing for a broad range of grips and accessories to be mounted where you need them. We tested the M-LOK MP5K version of the DTAC MHS and fell in love instantly. Machined from a single piece of T6 aluminum, the M-LOK version offers six well-placed, full-size accessory mounting slots . . . all in an incredibly lightweight 2.2 oz. package.

Installation was easy. It took seven minutes total to swap out the old for the new, and only required the use of the two included Allen wrenches. The end result is that I now have a lightweight, metal (instead of the factory plastic) handguard that allowed me to mount my Surefire light, Magpul vertical grip and ZeroBravo hand stop in ergonomically correct and convenient locations.

Raven Concealment Moduloader Pocket Shield

Raven 1Lights, magazines, knives, keys and tourniquets and have become major components of the EDC (“every day carry”) movement. The problem that arises now is carrying all this gear discreetly in a work environment or around town without printing and with some semblance of organization.

Raven Concealment—known for its top-tier Kydex and injection-molded holsters—however, has solved the issue of distinctive printing and disorganization with the new Moduloader Pocket Shield ($24.99). Available in black, gray or coyote brown, the flexible, molded polymer Pocket Shield offers four columns of MOLLE to attach any number of accessories—like the Blue Force Gear or Tuff Products pistol-magazine pouches—or you can directly connect items using the supplied hardware and standard pocket clips. When inserted into the pocket of even thin trousers, the uniformly curved shape of the shield breaks up the hard lines of your EDC gear, making it impossible for others to identify your pocket contents.

Raven 2The flexible, angel-wing shape secures the shield in the pocket so that it will not pull out when you grab your knife, magazine or flashlight, and the tapered base and wide curved edges stop your gear from moving around in your pocket. The result is that your spare magazine (and anything else attached to the Pocket Shield) is always in the same spot at the same orientation every time you reach for it regardless of the pants you wear.

LaserMax Spartan Green Adjustable-Fit Laser

The 2015 On Target Editors’ Choice Award winning Spartan Series of Lasers by LaserMax now includes an ultra-high-visibility green laser. This small, lightweight, rail-mounted laser installs quickly and easily on handguns and rifles, and has a unique mounting system to create a spot-on perfect fit on any handgun. It’s also programmable to work in both a pulse mode for longer battery life or steady beam based on your needs. Windage and elevation adjustments offer you the ability to zero on multiple platforms.

LaserMax (needs laser)The Spartan Series features a new mounting technology that incorporates a secondary moveable indexing tab, allowing you to adjust the position of the laser front to rear on the accessory rail of a pistol or rifle. It works great, and we were able to create a snug-to-trigger guard fit on every pistol we tried it on. At the base of the Spartan’s body you’ll find a short strip of Picatinny rail for additional accessory mounting—such as a white-light illuminator or IR laser.

Mounting options do you no good, however, if you can’t see your laser’s dot. Like all LaserMax products, the signature green laser we tested was super bright, even in full-daylight sun, and is a noticeable improvement in visibility over the red laser . . . all for a reasonable $50 upcharge over the red.
