NcStar Tactical Series 4×32 Scope

Ho, Ho, Ho, and a Very Merry Xmas to all you Bloggers

Well, here we are again, nearly Xmas time and all is (still) well!!! Blue Skies, Warm, Sunny Weather and not a Zombie in sight, and not even a sniff of a Pandemic. Boy did they get it wrong!!! So it’s time to think about what little “trinkets” you would like to put into your Xmas Stocking (as it seems like we are going to have another peaceful Xmas) One little “Trinket” that is a must for any Xmas Stocking is the NcStar Tactical Series 4×32 Scope ~ B30. These are one of the shortest Tactical Scopes on the market today at only 6.7 inches in length…………………..How’s that for COMPACT!!! Now a lot of you shooters will be starting to think about now………….”I’ve got 6 scopes, what do I want another one for???” Well for one thing – Small is Light, and Light is Good!!! (especially if it is you that has to Lug it around all day) And another thing, is that a Fixed 4 Power Scope is a “No Nonsense” easy to operate scope that will deliver the goods, every time. Once it is sighted in, you dont have to fiddle with it again, just bring the rifle up, put the cross-hairs on the target and squeeze the trigger…………………Job Done!!! (Simplicity is a must for us older shooters)

The NcStar Tactical Series Scope ~ B30 is a compact scope that is designed for shooting at targets that are from 50 mtrs out to approx. 250 mtrs, so if most of the shooting you do is this relatively close-in type of shooting, then this is the perfect little lightweight scope for your rifle. The Tactical Series of scopes (and there are a few of them that you can check out on our website) are great for putting onto the following rifles. – All airguns, all .177 HMR, .22 and .22 mag. rifles, all 9mm, .30, .40 & .45 cal. Carbines and most intermediate caliber rifles, eg: .222, .223, .243, 7.62×39. The NcStar Tactical Series Scope ~ B30 is also a perfect scope to use on your hunting Crossbow and your Airsoft rifles where your target distance is 50 – 100 mtrs. It doesn’t matter if you are Blasting your way through “Fallujah,” with your M-4 Carbine, Shooting the SH*T out of a bunch of Zombies with your SKS, Bombing-up a mob of Goats with your .45 Ruger Camp Carbine, Hammering the Hell out of the Hares on the farm with your .22 mag AK, or just Plinking away at a few Tin Cans with your Trusty Airgun, the NcStar fixed 4 power scope will handle it all. So you can see by the multiple options here, that this little tactical scope is a “Winner” with most short to medium range Rifles.

Let’s see what the Technical Spec’s are -

1) Magnification – Is a Fixed 4 x Power with a tube diameter of 1 in, (25mm) with a compact length of 6.7 in’s.

2) Reticle – Is a P4 Sniper reticle with a Red Illumination option that has 7 levels of intensity, at the quick twist of a dial.

3) Eye Relief – Of 3.0 in’s with a field of view of 26.2 ft at 100 yds, and an objective diameter of 30.0 mm

4) Weight – A very light weight 8.5 oz (excl. Rings) and has a Click Value of 1/4 MOA at 100 yds.

5) Lens Colour – Comes with a Green Multi-Coated Lens coating for enhanced light gathering capabilities.

6) And finally – Comes with plastic Lens Covers and a spare Battery for your Reticle Illumination.

So my good Comrades-in-Arms, we can see what a great little Tactical Scope this is, and it doesn’t matter if you already have 6 scopes, there is always room for another scope (especially one as versatile as this) in your Gun Cabinet.

Happy Shooting this Xmas……………………………………………………The “Quartermaster”

 

 

ATI SKS Fiberforce Stock

A Big Hello to all you bloggers and Shooters

I always enjoy talking about one of my favorite rifles and as I have a particular soft spot for the Russian SKS Carbine we will be discussing this rifle today, and the excellent stock accessory that can be had for it. This is probably due to the fact that I have owned many of them in the past (Russian, Chinese, Yugoslav and Czech) and shot these rifles at club events many, many times and always enjoyed the experience. I have come to love the Russian Gun Inventors as they seem to be able (even working under the most severe conditions at times) to produce a firearm that will work anywhere in the world under any circumstances, will outlast most firearms on the planet, and anyone with 1/2 a brain can use it with reasonable success. Now we all know that the SKS is not the “Most Prettiest” Carbine on the block, but with a little “Titivating” here and there, you can have a great looking SKS in no time.

What we are talking about here is taking the wooden stock off and putting a Tactical – ATI SKS (Dragunov Style) Fiberforce Stock ~ Y24/B onto your SKS action…………….”Voila!!!” Job Done!!!………………………From a Frog to a Princess in one quick move!!! and perfectly “A Cat” license Legal for New Zealand Firearms Law. Now we have a “Sweet Looking” Tactical Carbine that is pretty near indestructible with an “soft shooting, intermediate” cartridge that shoots a .30 cal projectile, which will take down just about any living thing on this planet, including “Zombies”……………………..How about that for a all rounder rifle??????? I truly believe that the 7.62 x 39 Cartridge is the Best “All-Round” (cost effective) cartridge in the world. Also having a longer barrel than an AK means you get a bit more accuracy as well so you can pull off those “Flukey” Longer Range Shots. The ATI SKS (Dragunov Style) Fiberforce Stock’s ~ Y24/B will also fit the detachable mag model SKS’s, although there might be a little widening of the Mag-Well needed to take the Detachable Mags, (a simple operation with a file is all)

In saying what a great stock this is, there are a couple of small things that I think could be improved on with this stock. The first thing (and the most Glaring Fault) is that the Fiberforce Stock has a rounded upstanding Lug at the back of the SKS Receiver. While this might look good, you cant strip your top cover and bolt down without removing the stock as the top receiver has to slide backwards off the breech and cant do so because of this Receiver Lug that sticks up. This is where good old “Kiwi Ingenuity” comes in……………1 x Hacksaw, 1 x File and 1 x piece of Fine Sand Paper…………….10 min. and the job is done……………..”Voila!!!” Some folks just cut the whole Lug off, and some cut 1/2 the Lug off and cut a Groove in the middle to allow the Locking Pin Lug on the back of the receiver to slide through. Both modifications work well.

The 2nd thing that can be a bit annoying is the Trigger locking pin that locks the whole trigger group into place at the rear of the trigger. This is normally a “Bitch” of a thing to get off and on at the best of times. Sometimes the Bloody thing is stuck and wont slide very easily, so you end up Belting it with a Hammer and Punch to make it shift and the spring that holds it in place feels like it’s been made out of a Russian Truck Leaf Spring, it’s so damm strong. So when you are trying to fit your new ATI SKS Fiberforce Stock ~ Y24/B to your action, sometimes a little parring out and filing down where it fits into the stock is needed to make the Trigger Group slide and lock into place more easier. You should be able to just push on the Detente Pin with a bullet to release and pop out the trigger group and tap on the Trigger Guard with the heel of your hand to get it locked back in place.

So………………How much “Bang” do you get for your “Buck”?????

So for a start, we have a lighter Stock and in the tried & true Dragunov Style of stock that we know is a very comfortable and easy to line up stock, once again just great for the younger Kids (or even a Big Kid) These ATI Fiberforce Stocks are compatible with Iron Sights or Red Dot Sights or any Optical Sights. For NZ conditions and Law, this stock is a Legal “A Category” Stock so no special endorsements needed on your license to fit one of these to your SKS Rifle. Another Bonus is that it is a very easy, drop in installation, and no special tools are needed to fit this stock to your SKS or your SKK Carbine.

The Package comes with a Ventilated Forend for good Heat Dissipation and a Top Handguard to stop you getting burnt fingers, a built-inĀ  Adjustable, Cheek Rest with a 3M “Soft Touch” Cheek Rest Pad for a smooth, no-bite, Cheek Weld, plus 2 x Sling Swivel Studs for your Quick Release Tactical Sling. The Stock is extremely scratch resistant having been made in the USA from DuPont, Extreme Temperature, Glass Reinforced Polymer which makes it pretty near Darn Indestructible.

Now in my (Humble) opinion, the best (as they say) is yet to come!!! and what I mean by that is that you can have your ATI SKS (Dragunov Style) Fiberforce Stock in 3 different colours, – Tactical Black ~ Y24/B, Desert Tan ~ Y46/T and Destroyer Grey ~ Y45/G, so you can colour co-ordinate your stock to your cammo uniform, check them out on our website.

Well Comrade Bloggers………….Dosvadanya, Have Nice Day!!!………………………….The “Quartermaster”

 

ATI Ruger 10/22 Fiberforce Stock

A Warm Rugerish Welcome to all you Bloggers and Shooters

One thing you have to love about Mr. Ruger is his ability to create a product that is so universally popular, (Like the Kalashnikov AK47 Rifle) that it spawns a 1001 aftermarket products and accessories for it. That truly is the mark of a great rifle. What we are talking about is the wonderful, Ruger 10/22 rifle and the multitude of accessories that can be had for it. Every one should experience the delight of shooting a Ruger 10/22 rifle before they die, because they really are a lovely little rifle to “Plink” with. Dad’s love them, Mom’s love them, Kid’s love them, Prepper’s love them, everyone loves them. (except Zombies, they hate them) One of the most important things about the Ruger 10/22 rifle is the cost of them …………….They are very reasonably priced, which means you can spend the dollars that you saved on the price to buy a few accessories to “Pimp” it up a bit.

Now one of the first thing to purchase when you are “Pimping” up your Ruger is a nice lightweight stock like the ATI Ruger 10/22 (Dragunov Style) Fiberforce stock ~ Y28/B. These are a great stock as they are lighter (weighs only 26 oz.) than the original wooden stock and (in my opinion) they look nicer and are more comfortable to hold as well. Kid’s (big & small) just love to shoot the Ruger with a Fiberforce Stock on.

So for a start, we have a lighter Stock and in the tried & true Dragunov Style of stock that we know is a very comfortable and easy to line up stock, once again just great for younger Kids (or even a Big Kid) These ATI Fiberforce Stocks ~ Y28′s are compatible with Iron Sights or Red Dot Sights or any Optical Sights. For NZ conditions and Law, this stock is a Legal “A Category” Stock so no special endorsements needed on your license to fit one of these to your Ruger Rifle. Another Bonus is that it is a very easy, drop in installation, and no special tools are needed to fit this stock to your Ruger.

The Package comes with a Ventilated Forend for good Heat Dissipation and a Top Handguard to stop you getting burnt fingers, a built-in Cheek Rest with a 3M “Soft Touch” Cheek Rest Pad, for a smooth, no-bite, Cheek Weld, plus 2 x Sling Swivel Studs for your Quick Release Tactical Sling. The Stock is extremely scratch resistant having been made in the USA from DuPont, Extreme Temperature, Glass Reinforced Polymer which makes it pretty near Darn Indestructible. (Which is just wonderful for being “Kid Proofed”)

NB: The ATI Ruger Fiberforce Stock ~ Y28/B will not fit the Bolt Action Model or any “Bull Barrel” Ruger without some minor modifications.

Now in my (Humble) opinion, the best (as they say) is yet to come!!! and what I mean by that is that you can have your Ruger 10/22 in 3 different colours, – Tactical Black ~ Y28/B, Desert Tan ~ Y53/T and Destroyer Grey ~ Y54/G, that way each of the kids can have their own colour coordinated Ruger Rifle………………..No need for their rifles to get mixed up again………….You Little Beaut!!! Check out this “Sexy Looking” Rifle!!!

Happy Plinking…………………………………….The “Quartermaster”
