Tango Down Advanced Combat Bipod

Tango Down Advanced Combat Bipod

Tango Down Advanced Combat Bipod

 

The Tango Down Advanced Combat Bipod is designed specifically for the M16/M4 weapon families. Attached directly to the MIL-STD 1913 MWS (SOPMOD) rail system, no separate adapters necessary.

Bipod body – The clamp body and center portion are forged from 7075-T6 aluminum with Type III hard anodizing. The center portion has two pivots, to which the legs are attached. It will fit on any MIL-STD 1913 rail, using a clamp on the base that is secured by two stainless, black finish screws. An allen wrench or screwdriver can be used to install or remove the ACB. A black stainless button on the outside of each pivot releases and engages a sealed, pre-lubricated stainless steel locking mechanism, which allows the bipod legs to rotate 90° from stowed to deployed. It is locked in both positions and can only be released by touching the button. The center portion rotates for traversing and allows about 40° of angle. The whole bipod body can cant 15°. Urethane bushings keep the bipod center-favored while allowing it to cant on uneven ground.

Legs – The legs are made up of two pieces – the inner and outer legs. The outer legs house the locking mechanism and button, and have 3 holes/detents which provide 3 height adjustments. The outer legs are made of a proprietary glass-reinforced nylon and are much tougher than they look (I was concerned early on in the design stage when I saw the inner legs, but tried to snap one and I couldn’t. The ACB-4 has exceeded Army drop-test requirements). The inner legs are made of carbon-fiber reinforced nylon, and slide in and out of the outer legs. At the top of the inner leg is a button, which fits into the detents in the outer legs. The inner legs are extended by simply pulling them out. In order to shorten them, the button must be depressed and the leg slid in, where the button will engage the next detent. The feet are large to prevent sinking in sand and aggressively checkered for a good grip. When stowed, the bipod legs are locked along the rail system, fitting neatly between the lower and side rails.

308 AR M-PRO 7 AR15 CLEANING KIT

Brownells has teamed up with M-Pro 7 to develop this cleaning kit specifically for maintaining an AR-type rifle in peak operating condition. Now you can clean your AR using the same operationally tested products used by the United States Armed Forces. Inside the kit’s compact hardshell case you’ll find M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner that safely penetrates deep beneath even tough, scorched-on carbon fouling to lift away the gunk and leave the bore sparkling clean. M-Pro 7 Cleaner/Lubricant/Protectant delivers superior lubrication and corrosion protection, and can also be used for quick cleaning on the go, when there isn’t enough time for the complete cleaning routine. You get a military-style multi-section steel cleaning rod with a folding handle, plus five high-quality bronze brushes to clean ARs in the standard .223/5.56mm and .308/7.62mm calibers, as well as 9mm and .45 chamberings, plus a brush for cleaning the bolt carrier way—critical for maintaining reliable weapon cycling. There’s plenty of absorbent cotton flannel patches in three sizes to fit all those calibers, plus the M-Pro 7 Weapons Maintenance Guide.

GRIP POD SYSTEMS Grip Pod

Grip Pod Systems is the largest weapon stabilization system for small arms in use with the U.S. Armed forces. Approximately four years ago, the U.S. Army at Picatinny Arsenal tested all known bipods in open competition for use on the m16a2, m16m4, and m16a4, in CQB, Medium, and Long range Applications. The Patented Grip Pod prevailed as a strong, dual purpose vertical foregrip and bipod in one small light package. It deployed with the push of a button and enabled the soldier to engage the enemy with speed and accuracy never before thought possible.

It attaches to the M4 Carbine and M16 rifle series of weapons via MIL-STD 1913 interface.

Sinclair F-Class Bi-Pod

Just after attaining legend status among long-range shooters with its original F-Class bipod, Sinclair introduced an even better one.

It is available in both clear (natural) and black anodizing.
