Put a pair of VZ grips on it and it will be.

Like so...

Here is something I thought the readers of this thread might find interesting. I was in a shop in a different town on Sunday and had some time to kill while my girlfriend did some work-related stuff, so wandered about a sporting-good store and spotted one of these. My initial reaction was to laugh and shake my head.

Yes indeed, Mossberg is marketing a tacticool lever-action called the 464 SPX, 30-30 caliber, muzzle-break/flash-hider, collapsing "black" stock, lots of Picatinny rails for red-dots, lights, microwaves, porta-potties, etc!
All that plastic and it still is listed at 7 lbs.

Here's a little gizmo I designed and built for PACT to cycle their AR triggers for testing. Just attach a drill motor or other power source to the shaft and it cocks the hammer and pulls the trigger over and over.

I'm in the market for a Kydex holster for training purposes. Currently using the XD gear paddle holster, but have to take off my light and I'd rather it ride a little higher.

www.Kydextech.com has a 1-2 week lead time and a good price. Any of you guys have any experience with them?

Check these guys out. Reversible so you can put it IWB or OWB.

I hear good things about them.

yeah, I know about Raven they're twice as much $ and twice the lead time. I met a local guy that does em at the last gun show, but can't find his info anymore.

I want a pistol holster, double mag pouch, and an AR mag pouch.

Wow, I didn't think their lead would be that long.

Have you considered making your own?

PACT Triggers?

PACT makes triggers? Why do I not know this? I have had their chronograph and scale since the 80's, had not heard about them getting into triggers. Something else to research. I am still getting used to how nice my Gisselle works but there is another AR....... So much for keeping things consistant.


I don't feel quite as out of touch now. I had heard of A R Gold triggers but didn't realize that they were associated with PACT. Interesting information on their website, kind of pricy but most of the decent AR triggers seem to cost that much. It would be really nice if there was a way to feel all the aftermarket triggers and say "That is the one I like" rather than compare specs and guess. The graphs are useful but unless you have a graph of something you already know that you like it is still hard to compare.

Sigh, the closest thing I have to tacticool is a Glock 27 with a laser.
