Apex Tactical’s MRAT FNX 45 Compensator — Reduce Recoil and Climb

Apex Tactical Specialties, an Arizona-based accessories company, is now offering the MRAT FNX 45 compensator for FNX-45 pistols with factory threaded barrels.

Aftermarket options for the threaded FNX-45 pistol expanded with the Apex Tactical MRAT Compensator. The MRAT stands for Muzzle Rise Amplitude Tamer and is supposed to dramatically reduce felt recoil and muzzle rise.

The MRAT, or Muzzle Rise Amplitude Tamer, was designed to dramatically reduce both felt recoil and muzzle rise of the FNX-45 model pistols while shooting. The reduction is so significant, in fact, that Apex provides a captive-spring guide rod assembly to ensure proper function due to the reduced slide velocity produced by the MRAT.

Apex MRAT FNX 45 Compensator components
Included in the box from Apex for a reportedly easy install: the MRAT FNX 45 Compensator, a captive-spring guide rod assembly, two brass tip set screws, and a vial of thread locker fluid.

The MRAT was tested with a variety of SAAMI spec ammunition; from the lightest ‘target’ rounds to +P duty rounds. The result was a 40% to 60% reduction in muzzle rise, with Fiocchi 230gr FMJ giving 44% and Federal 230gr Personal Defense Punch JHP giving 67% reduction, according to Apex. The company did state that results may vary based on both the ammunition used and the individual shooter.

The kit contains the MRAT Compensator, a captive-spring guide rod assembly, two brass tip set screws, and a 1.8ml vial of thread locker fluid. The installation is easy, and Apex provides a detailed how-to video to properly guide customers through the process.

MRAT FNX 45 Compensator
According to Apex Tactical, the MRAT FNX 45 Compensator was tested with different SAAMI spec ammunition, resulting in a 40% – 60% reduction in muzzle rise. The company went on to say that individual results may vary based on the individual and ammunition used.

The MRAT comes in Black, which is in stock and available now is $175, or FDE, which has a small wait time and an MSRP of $200.

FNX 45 Compensator

The block is manufactured from a durable polymer for longevity and resistance to wear. Midwest Industries made it compatible with multiple calibers by designing either end of the block for different calibers; each end of the block is clearly marked with the relevant chambering. That means the user will get a secure fit in the magwell of their gun with no guesswork.

Glocks have almost endless accessories and customization options, so it’s good to have the means to lock the gun in place while working on it. 

MSRP for the Midwest Industries Glock Pistol Caliber Carbine Block is set at $39.95.

Apex Ammunition: Waterfowl Perfection – The Mag Life

It’s never too soon to start preparing for waterfowl season, and part of that includes getting the best ammo on hand for the job. Apex Ammunition’s Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend is designed to help you have your greatest waterfowl season yet. Sure, you have to provide the skills to impact targets, but the ammo will do the rest. After all, there’s not much worse than simply wounding a duck rather than dropping it with a single, effective shot.

APEX Ammunition, which states they are the makers of premium, ultra-high-density Tungsten Super Shot (TSS) shotshells, is pleased to introduce its new limited-edition, Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend. (Photo credit: Apex Ammunition)

Apex Ammunition provided the following details for the shotshells:

Available in 3-inch, 12-gauge shells, this handcrafted “duplex load” combines No. 8 TSS with No. 3 S3 zinc-plated steel for a versatile, hard-hitting load whether you are shooting over decoys on opening day or trying to bring down warier, late-season waterfowl.

The zinc coating on the premium grade APEX steel shot ensures uniform pellets for optimum patterning in a steel load and, when combined with 18.1 g/cc TSS, helps deliver a harder hitting payload with improved terminal performance to reduce crippling.

Jason Lonsberry, CEO, APEX Ammunition, summarized the waterfowl-specific ammo:

This load comes in a box featuring the Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat camo pattern and offers hunters a new combination of shot sizes with deep penetration and lethal energy transfer.

Chris Paradise, Chief Sales Officer of Mossy Oak, also had a few things to say about the ammunition from Apex:

Mossy Oak is excited to partner with APEX, one of the most reputable ammo manufacturers, to offer waterfowl hunters the Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend that brings the best of both worlds for waterfowl ammo into one shell.

Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat

Waterfowlers need the most reliable shotshells possible to ensure hunting success. It’s never good to have a wounded bird, so you want ammo capable of killing them quickly and ethically. According to the manufacturer, that’s what this 12 gauge ammo is designed for. These are three inch shotshells with a manufacturer-tested speed of 1400 feet per second. As a duck hunter, you want to do your best to eliminate the chances of crippled birds, and Apex Ammunition claims this is the ammo to do it.

Mossy Oak Shadowgrass Habitat Blend

This ammunition is well worth a closer look. What do you think, does it get the job done for waterfowl hunting? Tell us what you think in the comments section.

MSRP for Apex Ammunition Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat ammunition is set at $51.99 (per 25 round box) or $489.99 (per case -10 boxes).

FORE! Based on the Strike Industries OPPRESSOR blast shield muzzle device which aids in redirecting blast and sound, this SI OPPRESSOR Golf Ball Launcher also uses the quick detach PATENTED Strike Rapid Engage Mount (SREM) system mount.

Using blanks, golf balls can be launched 100s of yards, of course in a safe direction. Depending on the various golf ball, golf ball fit, weapon and blank used, you can see launch golf balls 500+ yards.

Unity Tactical FAST Micro-S Optic Mount — Heads Up!

UNITY Tactical is expanding its line of FAST Optic mounts with the FAST Micro-S Optic Mount. FAST is a series of optic mounts and platforms that provide end users with a quicker sight picture than standard height mounts. The FAST Micro-S is specifically designed for the Aimpoint CompM5s, CompM5b, and Duty RDS mini red dot sights.

The FAST Micro-S Mount places Aimpoint CompM5s, CompM5b, and Duty RDS sights at a 2.26″ optical center line above weapon rails. This stance makes these optics fully compatible with our patented Flip-To-Center Magnifier Mounts and provides all the same application benefits found with legacy FAST Mounts.

The FAST Micro-S places these taller “micro” sights at the established FAST height of 2.26” optical centerline above the rail.  This provides faster, easier dot or reticle acquisition while wearing night vision goggles, gas masks, plate carriers, and other gear. A heads-up posture also helps users maintain a neutral spine position which is more comfortable while wearing helmets, plate carriers, and other heavy gear.

Micro-S Mount
The FAST Micro-S Mount comes with a standard rail-grabber clamp mount but is designed to readily accept a drop-in American Defense Manufacturing patented QD Auto-Lock Lever This mounting option will provide quick detach capability.


  • Length: 2.08″
  • Width: 1.25″
  • Height: 1.55″
  • Weight:  2.3 oz.
  • Material:  7075-T6 Aluminum
  • Coating:  Type III Hardcoat Anodized
  • Mount Type:  Rail Grabber or QD Lever (sold separately)
  • Compatibility:  Aimpoint CompM5s, CompM5b, Duty RDS
FAST Micro-S Mount at angle
The UNITY Tactical Fast Micro-S mount’s 2.26” optical centerline height provides faster/easier reticle acquisition while wearing electronic ear-pro/communications headsets, night vision goggles, and gas masks. It also allows for more rapid visual processing of the battlefield by promoting a heads-up posture.

The FAST MICRO-S is fully compatible with the entire line of FAST Magnifier Mounts from UNITY Tactical. The FAST MICRO-S is machined from 70-75 T-6 aluminum and is hard-coat anodized in Black or FDE. The mount comes with a standard rail-grabber clamp mount but is designed to readily accept a drop-in American Defense Manufacturing patented QD Auto-Lock Lever (sold separately).

Jagerwerks B.R.O.S.: SRO Protection – The Mag Life

Although red dot sights are usually designed to withstand bumps and scrapes, it’s entirely possible to damage one. That’s especially true of some designs that grant you a larger field of view but might have a housing more prone to breaking. The Jagerwerks B.R.O.S. (Battle Ready Optic Shield) is made to fix that problem by serving as a protective guard for the Trijicon SRO.

By adding the B.R.O.S. to your gear, you get peace of mind and the gift of putting your rifle to work without worrying about your SRO.

According to Jagerwerks, their B.R.O.S. is designed to increase the durability and resistance to impact damage of your optic in real life situations. (Photo credit: Jagerwerks)

Jagerwerks provides details regarding the optics shield:

100% Made in Michigan out of Tig welded grade 304 stainless steel then black nitride coated for years of worry-free service.

This product is designed to increase the durability and resistance to impact damage of your optic in real life situations.

According to Murphy’s law we will not warranty your optic against neglect or abuse.

Does not include mounting screws. We recommend using our RMR/SRO #6-32 7/16″ IP15

Weight is 1 oz or 28 grams. Metal thickness is 1mm or .040″.

There is a slight bend on the ejection (right) side of the shield. This is to deflect brass.

SRO is NOT included.

The Battle Ready Optic Shield from Jagerwerks
The Battle Ready Optic Shield from Jagerwerks doesn’t just cover the top of the Trijicon SRO, it goes all the way around it. (Photo credit: Jagerwerks)

Unlike some products that simply snap over an optic, the Battle Ready Optic Shield from Jagerwerks is all-encompassing.

It’s designed so the Trijicon SRO sits inside it and the entire setup is then mounted to the rifle or pistol. This ensures you’re not getting only a sliver of protection, you’re getting the best possible coverage. Even better, Jagerwerks made the shield so having it in place doesn’t stop you from operating the SRO. Controls aren’t hindered by the use of the B.R.O.S.

Battle Ready Optic Shield from Jagerwerks
The B.R.O.S. is made from durable material meant to extend the life of your Trijicon SRO and protect it from wear and tear. (Photo credit: Jagerwerks)

Just as the Trijicon SRO can be used on long guns or handguns, the B.R.O.S. is compatible with whatever platform you’ve chosen to mount your red dot on. It’s easy to install, with no gunsmith required. Simply remove the SRO from your gun, drop the red dot inside the B.R.O.S., and screw it in place. The B.R.O.S. does not automatically ship with screws, so if you need new screws, be sure to select that option when ordering.

Trijicon SRO with BROS installed
With the Jagerwerks B.R.O.S. installed, your SRO gets more protection and you have greater freedom to run your gun without worrying as much about bumps and scrapes. (Photo credit: Jagerwerks)

For shooters running their pistols with Safariland holsters, Jagerwerks provides a connect to Ghost Men Designs.

MSRP for the Jagerwerks Battle Ready Optic Shield is set at $50.00 and goes up to $57.00 with the addition of mounting screws.

What do you think, would you install one of these to protect your SRO?

Safariland IWB Holsters: Optics-Ready Schema

Finding the right holster for your body shape and specific needs can be a challenge. Matters tend to be simplified by going to a trusted holster maker for gear, and that’s where Safariland comes in. If you’re in the market for an inside the waistband (IWB) holster, the Safariland Schema is an optics-ready model that just might be exactly what you need.

According to Safariland, the Schema is a minimalist IWB holster that offers concealability and minimal printing. A smooth draw and passive retention make Schema the perfect companion for everyday carry. (Photo credit: Safariland)

Safariland provides details of the IWB Schema:

Schema is an optics-ready minimalist holster designed for subcompact firearms. As the namesake implies, the skeletonized outline of the holster frame has a smaller footprint than traditional IWB offerings to optimize concealability. This new model offers superior functionality with a reinforced mouth, allowing for seamless firearm holstering while the holster is worn. The firearm-specific design creates an exacting fit, which is further secured by Schema’s passive trigger guard retention.

Safariland states the Schema is a firearm-specific design that pairs optic compatibility with a cantable and vertically adjustable belt clip to allow for comfort on any body type. (Photo credit: Safariland)

Eric Gasvoda, VP/GM of Duty Gear for Safariland, said:

Safariland is thoughtfully expanding on our concealment line to offer consumers unparalleled quality and innovation they’ve come to expect from the brand. Schema is the beginning of the revitalization of our EDC holster line, and I can’t wait to get it into the hands of our customers.

This holster is designed to give users the most minimalist, yet secure, IWB holster possible. It’s cut to be compatible with optics and created with a streamlined yet durable shape. Not only can the Schema be adjusted for cant but it can also be adjusted vertically so ride height can be customized to the specific user.

Safariland Schema holster clip
The clip on the Schema is adjustable so the user can get the perfect fit for them. (Photo credit: Safariland)

Practicing proper concealed carry starts not with the gun but with the holster. Your holster needs to provide retention and keep the gun hidden on your body in the exact spot you expect it to be. For an IWB holster, those features remain vital; for the Safariland Schema, it’s a given. This holster is made with the specific needs of concealed carriers in mind. Not only are its features user friendly but it’s made from durable material capable of standing up to daily wear.

The Safariland Schema is available for the following models:

  • SIG Sauer P365
  • SIG Sauer P365 XL
  • Taurus G2C
  • Taurus G3C
  • Glock 43
  • Glock 43X
  • Springfield Hellcat

The holster is compatible with the following optics:

  • Swampfox Sentinel
  • SIG Sauer Romeo Zero
  • Trijicon RMR CC
  • Shield RMS
  • Shield RMS C
  • Hex Wasp
