NEW Obsolete Arms Smokewagon Speedloader
Smokewagon Speedloader from Obsolete Arms

William, at Obsolete Arms, has designed a new foldable speedloader, that can maintain a flat profile for storage in a pocket, but when deployed, folds to the correct dimensions to reload the revolver all at once. William calls it the Smokewagon Speedloader, and he decided to start with the dimensions of a Kimber K6S cylinder, as he said that’s currently the smallest six-shot cylinder on the market, so once he finalizes the design, he can scale up Smokewagon Speedloaders for other popular revolvers.

Smokewagon Speedloader from Obsolete Arms

Once the cartridges are loaded into the Smokewagon Speedloader, they are locked into the loader, and it can then be opened to a flat position for carrying. To close it, the tab has two buttons that need to be pressed, then once the cartridges are in the cylinder, the tab is pressed toward the cylinder and the Smokewagon Speedloader can then drop free. Obsolete Arms’ description can be seen below:
The Smokewagon Speedloader was designed to be easily carried, while still providing the user with the same speed and reliability as with any other conventional speedloader on the market.
Our speedloader can lock flat when carried. With a press of a button, our speedloader unlocks and acts like a standard push-release speedloader.
Weight : 1oz
Material : 3D printed Polycarbonate Thermally stable up to 200 Fahrenheit.
Grip Accommodation: Our speedloader is guaranteed to work with VZ grips. Due to the variety of grips on the market, we can’t guarantee that our speedloader will work with other company grips, without modification.

William has been told that his Smokewagon Speedloader should be compatible with Colt Cobra revolvers as well, but he stated that he hasn’t been able to confirm that yet. TFB is working with Obsolete Arms to test and evaluate this new speedloader, including with a Colt Cobra, so stay tuned for that. For interested wheelgunners, the Smokewagon is available at ObsoleteArms.com for $50.00. Obsolete Arms can be followed on Instagram and YouTube.

An Ambidextrous 80% AR-15 Lower Receiver
December 8th, 2021
Garden Grove, CA., (December 8th, 2021) – 80 PERCENT ARMS, the leading producer of 80% lowers, 80% lower jigs, and 80% pistol frames, debuts the latest in their line of AR-15 receivers you can build at home: an all-new ambidextrous 80% AR-15 lower receiver.

This premium ambi lower brings new bold and functional styling to 80% lowers. A freshly contoured design with a host of features gives fresh aesthetics with new functions to the 80% builder space. We’ve included the ability to drop the bolt from the right side of the receiver, aiding in speed reloads and getting the shooter back on the gun faster.
80% Arms has incorporated several other features to improve shootability of the lower receiver as well. A trigger pre-travel take-up tension screw has been included to improve the pull on triggers that may have excessive pre-travel by providing upwards tension on the rear of the trigger unit.
Additionally, a receiver tension screw is included with the receiver, allowing for tension to be placed on the rear takedown pin lug of an upper receiver, removing slop or movement between receivers where the aftermarket match may not be as precise as desired.
Because even the little things matter, 80% Arms has threaded the rear takedown pin spring hole, to make installation of the lower parts kit (especially the backplate), a breeze.
Finally, the rearward safety selector stop has been abbreviated to allow easier manipulation of the safety selector when hands are wet or slippery by allowing more thumb engagement on the safety selector lever.

The 80% ambi lower is the latest in a rapidly expanding catalog of premium 80% receivers offered by 80% Arms. It’s available online at www.80percentarms.com, and ships directly to your door.

New Timney Triggers Glock Flat Trigger Shoe

Tool Knife Blade Bicycle part Font


Bicycle part Tool Font Fashion accessory Auto part



The new trigger is capable of being installed by the end-user with no gunsmithing needed according to Timney. Being compatible with a wide variety of Glock pistols is another bonus for anyone who wants to try out a new trigger or outright replace one on any of their Glock pistols. The option to change the take-up of the trigger is also a nice feature I think some competition shooters might like. The anodized aluminum Glock flat-faced trigger is sold on the Timney website for $71.99 which is less expensive than some of their competitors but also lacks features other aftermarket trigger companies offer that customers may or may not want. What are your thoughts on this new Timney Trigger offering? Let us know down in the comments.

“Hitting In Combat”
December 30th, 2021
Hitting in Combat: The Brain Science of Training to Win Gunfights by Dustin Salomon examines of it is possible to aim in a gunfight.

The author looks at the origins of point shooting training methodology, explores how different methods of training impact real-world performance, and explains how, ultimately, both sides of this argument are right, as well as the implications this has for instructor liability and the future of tactical firearms training.
?”Very insightful to the beginner as well as the advanced Tactical Shooter. This is a must read for those using sights and those not using sights. As Combat shooters we need to better understand how and why our brain does or doesn’t do what we want. I have been a Tactical Shooting instructor for many years and I learned a ton from Dustin’s latest book that will make me a better instructor. Read this book.”
– SGM (USA, Ret) Kyle E. Lamb, Author of Green Eyes & Black Rifles

Another kick in the balls!

Rising Material Costs Induce Vista Outdoors Ammunition Price Increases
Rising Materials Costs Induce Vista Outdoors Ammunition Price Increases

In a bit of disappointing news towards the end of this year, shooters can expect another set of rising ammunition and reloading component costs. Announced via a press release by Vista Outdoors, the umbrella of ammunition brands that the company has within its profile will see a set of ammunition and reloading component price increases in order to offset the rising cost of materials. Furthermore, Vista Outdoors announced that no new primer orders will be accepted until further notice due to such high demand.

Rising Material Costs Induce Vista Outdoors Ammunition Price Increases
December 21, 2021
Dear Customer:
Thank you for your business and for your continued support of American jobs and manufacturing. As we continue to see supply chain constraints and increases in our raw materials, we are increasing our pricing to help offset those rising costs.
Effective 4/1/2022, CCI, Federal, Hevi–Shot, Remington, and SPEER ammunition will take the following price increases:
  • Primers – 5%
  • Powder – 5%
  • Handgun – 2-8%
  • Rifle – 3-8%
  • Shotgun – 3-12%
Additionally, due to continued demand, NO new Primer orders will be accepted until further notice.
Unless you notify us to cancel an order, we will reprice all existing and future orders shipped on or after 4/1/2022 to the new prices.
You will receive your finalized price list no later than March 15th, 2022.
Thank you for your continued support of our brands and our American workforce.
Jason R. Vanderbrink
President, Ammunition
Rising Materials Costs Induce Vista Outdoors Ammunition Price Increases

While this news isn’t happy news for anyone involved, to put things in perspective what we are looking at for a worst-case scenario is perhaps a six-cent increase for retail priced shotshells (12%) and about a $1.50 increase in price for 1lb of powder (considering a $30 average price per pound). Meanwhile, primers from any of Vista Outdoors’ retailers will not be accepted which is a huge blow to reloaders everywhere especially considering many of us have used up our last reserves of primers probably sometime in 2021. It is unknown if further price increases are coming down the road and it is unclear as of writing how these price increases will impact the rest of the firearms industry on the whole.

Yeah the rear is the safety front is slide release, unless there’s some really stupid engineering going on.
