The year turns to time with less light which means some SRA competitions in the dark w/ weapon lights.
I have currently shot mostly with my custom 2011, Special EDCE, but my only pistol with a light mount is CZ Shadow.
As we all know, xx11 pistols have different grip angle than CZ, which is a problem as currently my wrists tend to turn to xx11 angle, so in the dark when you can’t properly see, the CZ points upwards if the wrists are not adjusted.
So set to enable mounting my pistol light (Nextorch WL10) to the Special EDCE. The options were to attach or machine some rail. We went with the latter.
Here are few pictures of the process:
Unfortunately the dust cover does not have very much structural strength so we had to make some compromises which makes this a custom fitting between the gun and the lamp in question. So the result is not an actual picatinny/weaver rail, only similar to.
Here’s a little picture comparison between the Aimpoint Micro H-1 and Bushnell TRS-25 micro red dots.
The first image depicts the difference in light transmission: cheaper TRS-25 filters a lot wider band of red, resulting in a very bluish image through the sight where the Micro H-1 appears almost natural.
Today was yet again very cold weather on the range, but no fingers got frozen as McFadden’s Lightning Grip Loader came to help!
This great little contraption enables you to fill your .22lr AR mags with gloves on and without a need to touch the rounds. Just pour proper amount (25) to the loader, shake a little and then pull the trigger! (25 times ;-P )
Special squad (SS) participated in Nordic Rife Match 2014 as Range Officers and shot the match in pre-match. For us the event was 4½ days from wednesday afternoon to sunday. SS was responsible to handle stages 15 and 16 on main match.
We had two new cameras to provide better coverage of the failures events of the match, totaling in possible 5 different angles.
