5.11 tactical all missions packs

In the late 1990s, Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE) was developed as an alternative to the All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment (ALICE) that had been in service since 1973. MOLLE is compatible with the Pouch Attachment Ladder System (PALS), and the grid of webbing was later developed to attach smaller equipment. With MOLLE and PALS the end user can configure their gear in any way. Recognizing the need to evolve in solutions for versatility and scalability, 5.11 Tactical designed the All Missions Packs (AMP). The AMP bags feature an advancement on MOLLE with their patented HEXGRID® load bearing platform. The HEXGRID® platform allows for the ability to attach gear at multiple angles so you’re no longer restricted to one direction. The packs also utilize their Gear Set™ System — a detachable 9x9…

december ’62

Two years prior, a .357 Magnum case was necked down to a .25 to become the .256 Winchester Magnum. While considered an advanced cartridge, there was no handgun for it. Launched on November 1, 1962, Ruger changed that with its Hawkeye. Built on a Blackhawk frame, the Hawkeye was unique with a rotating breech block. Cartridges were loaded singly into the chamber, which was integral with the barrel. Also new, the Bushnell Phantom pistol scope and mount were attached. Approximately 3,100 guns were produced.…

FIRST TIPPED BULLETS In Dave Emary’s column, “The Shape of Things” (March 2019), he discusses the design and function of several different bullet designs. On page 30, Mr. Emary states that tipped bullets were first developed by Nosler in 1989. He is correct when referring to polymer-tipped bullets, but I’m fairly sure that the original tipped bullet was the Remington Bronze Point sometime in the 1950s. Russ McCoy Email You are correct Mr. McCoy. The Remington Bronze Point bullet was developed in 1920 and was cataloged by 1923. The Bronze Point bullet has been out of production since 2013. In the context of “The Shape of Things,” I stuck with products currently produced and available. Great callout though! — D. Emary FIGHTING CENSORSHIP Eric Poole’s editorial in the May issue got me thinking about the…

MANY YEARS AGO, I bought an old Colt M1911A1 from friend and gunwriter, Tom Beckstrand. On the right side of the frame, it wears serial number “1729XXX” in a scripted font with “UNITED STATES PROPERTY” roll-stamped above it and “M1911A1 U.S. ARMY” to the right of the protruding slide-lock lever pin. There’s a “7” stamped at the front and atop the triggerguard and the number “131” is stamped at the bottom and to the rear of the triggerguard on the left side of the frame. The slide is particularly unique as I cannot find another with the same roll stamp. It reads, “COLT’S PT.F.A.MFG.CO. HARTFORD, CT. U.S.A.” The second line reads, “PAT’D APR. 20,1897. SEPT.9.1902. DEC.19,1905. FEB.14,1911. AUG.19,1913.” And “CAL. 45 AUTOMATIC” reads the third line. Colt’s rampant pony logo…

High-Grade Double-Barrel Bolt Gun A scarce and unusual Szecsei & Fuchs double-barrel, bolt-action rifle realized a very respectable $50,000 at a January 24, 2019, Sportsman’s Legacy (sportsmanslegacy.com) sale. Chambered in .416 Remington Magnum and weighing-in at 13.4 pounds, this superbly-crafted rifle has 23-inch stainless steel match-grade barrels with a bladed ramp front sight, sling swivel stud and quarter rib with one fixed and two folding leaf’s, each with a sighting line. The titanium action is topped with a central bridge that serves as the anchor for a quick-release mounting system. The bolt is probably the most impressive feature of the gun, a single piece of stainless steel lightened with flutes and finished with fine jeweling. The conventional thumb safety rocks forward to fire and the rear of the bolt shroud houses…
