AK Operator -The Modern Guide To A Legendary Rifle

Our friends at Polenar Tactical in Slovenia are working on a project to create the ultimate training DVD for the AK platform – in stunning 4K resolution.  If you’ve seen any of their videos, then you’ll know that if anyone can pull this off, its these guys (and gal).

Polenar-Tactical-AK_OperatorBut wait, there’s more!  Thanks to an awesome response from the marketplace, Polenar Tactical have actually managed to fund this project in less than a week!!  So, they’ve have decided to give away Special Edition DVD Covers – FOR FREE and move their other stretch goals down to lower amounts – that means more content for free and more easily attainable new goals!

This project is about more than just making a DVD though. It’s also about Polenar Tactical’s mission to put a human face on gun ownership and to show the positive side of ‘gun culture’ in Slovenia, Europe and the rest of the world.

Grey Ghost Rifle Case

If you’re in Nashville for the NRA show this week/week-end, then you’ll probably have a chance to see these first-hand.  The Grey Ghost Gear Rifle Case is something a little different from the cheap rifle bags you see elsewhere.

For a start, its lined with hook and loop so you can infinitely customize rifle ride positions, and add additional patches, pouches, or holsters.  Of course, Grey Ghost’s own line of Orange Diamond Concealment pouches can be fully integrated. There is also a set of generous zippered mesh pouches on the inner lid to secure loose items such as range cards, magazines, notepads, and other shooting accoutrement.

The Grey Ghost Rifle Bag is versatile too.  Rifles up to 38” long can fit without issue and larger rifles can easily be secured if broken down, leaving plenty of space for a spotting scope, NVGs, or a handgun or two.

Kinetic Development Group MREX rail for the SCAR

Kinetic Development Group (KDG) is proud to announce the debut of their first SCARcentric product – the MREX.

The SCAR is one of the most tested, reliable high-end weapons systems of our time. USSOCOM has put more rounds through the SCAR in testing than any other small arms platform in US history. Our forces have carried it into battle against our enemies on multiple continents. It can be accurately said that the SCAR is reliable and durable as an AK and as light and accurate (and nearly as ergonomic) as an AR15/M4.


It is a well engineered carbine…but what the heck happened when the FN Engineers designed the front end of the SCAR? Many shooters compare it to a 6 inch piece of 2×4 with cheese graters on all 4 sides! Where are you supposed to put your support hand if you have even one accessory mounted to those plastic rails?

Darren Mellors, David Loeser and AJ Lafferty, formerly of LWRCI, founded Kinetic Development Group to find solutions to problems with various high quality small arms platforms. The team recognized this as one of the shortcomings of the FN SCAR L/H.

KDG cringed at the thought of our troops dealing with the crowded front end of a weapon that seemed to have forgetten the shooter must be able to grasp it effectively. The standard SCAR forend forces Warfighters to compromise on the way they shoot as well as their choice of accessories. There should be no need for such a compromise, so KDG set out to make a change.
