Gear Review: CRKT Siwi Knife

We’ve already reviewed a couple CRKT products, many of which were from either their Forged By War program, or directly from the mind of other veteran designers – like Darrin Sirois. As with the other products pushed out by Columbia River Knife and Tool – the SIWI is a big winner for us. Mr. Sirois... Read More

Gear Review: Werkz Inforce APLc Glock 19 Holster

If you’re going to carry a weapon, you will need a good holster. Not some one-size fits all or bargain bin holstaer. You’re going to want something to put the tool you will trust your life with into. I’ve got a lot of holsters, and several for the Glock 19 for instance. But I came... Read More

Gear Review: Werkz IWB TLR-1 Holster

 Up for review today is another kick-ass holster from Werkz. Quality Kydex construction, great retention, and the same versatility of their APLc holster make this one another winner. Constructed from high quality Kydex, this one mounts my preferred light for EDC and personal defense loadout – the TLR-1 HL. Suffice it to say that I... Read More

Gear Review: Bastinelli Knives’ Kalinou

I’m a big fan of a curved blade, like that of a karambit – especially for EDC as a backup. The martial art Kali makes heavy use of them but even for the person untrained in Kali, it’s a great tool. If you click on any link we may get a commission from which... Read More

Gear Review: TimTam Vibrating Roller

As you saw from my post about the TimTam Power Massager, I was a bit skeptical at first. But then I tried it, and wow, was I blown away. It broke up knots I had been trying to get for months. Literally months – that’s not hyperbole. Ones that were deep in between my scaps from... Read More

Gear Review: My Medic MyFAK

My Medic does it again with an awesome piece of kit. It’s easy to see that their kits are designed by LEO and spec ops personnel, as with this kit you get everythign from a rip away “boo boo kit” to a trauma kit and even sutures to close vicious lacerations. We’ll go aspect by... Read More

Gear Review: APOC Armory Patriot Upper

The black rifle. It’s got so many shapes, sizes, and flavors nowadays. The possibilities are endless, and there are a ton of manufacturers out there. While some just ship them out, and have necessary QC issues, others, like APOC Armory, pride themselves with their products. As well they should. I’ve built my share of ARs,... Read More

Gear Review: Midstate Firearms Midlength Upper Review

There are a lot of companies that make AR parts. From the big dogs like Palmetto State to smaller shops, like Karri’s Guns and Midstate Firearms. We built out a one of Midstate Firearms mid-length uppers, with some pretty cool features. This review will get pretty intensive, so bear with us. If you’re not a... Read More

Gear Review: Condor Urban Go Pack Review

Up for review is the Condor Outdoor Urban Go Pack. A spacious pack, this item is feature rich, with a large capacity; 48 L in fact. I tested out this pack over the course of about 8 hours, and as many miles in the Georgia mountains, loaded out with between 20 and 40 lbs each... Read More

Gear Review: Kineti-tech Glock Drop In Trigger

We love our Glocks here at SGPT. Their ease of use, modularity, proven dependability, and lightweight to capacity ratio lends itself to liking them – whether you’re an avid shooter or first time pistol buyer. They are simple to maintain, and have a decent stock trigger. Pictured left are a stock trigger system removed, a... Read More

Gear Review: Vortex Sparc AR

By Alexander Castiglione I’ve been on an optics bender lately. You’ve probably read some of the reviews – from pistol optics to rifle optics. And for the money, the Sparc AR by Vortex is one of the best red dots on the market. It’s sleek, it’s rugged, it’s simple to use, and it runs on... Read More

Gear Review: Trijicon RMR Type 2 3.25 MOA Red Dot

Check out the SGPT gear review for the Trijicon RMR Type 2 3.25 MOA Red Dot scope and you decide if it is good enough for your next gun. The Trijicon RM06 is pretty much the gold standard in the RMR or compact, weapon mounted red dot world. RMR, if you didn’t know, stands for... Read More

Gear Review: Overwatch Precision TAC Glock Trigger

I’ve got aftermarket triggers in pretty much all my Glocks, except the full sized “duty guns” I own. And that’s for a couple reasons. First off, full size Glocks (17/21, etc) have smooth trigger faces unlike the G19 or G26 which has ridges. Also, I carry and shoot compact and subcompacts far more, so I... Read More

Gear Review: CRKT Septimo Folding Knife

  Up for review today we have the Septimo – a knife designed by a combat veteran and Green Beret Jeremy Valdez. According to CRKT – it “was designed by a seasoned Green Beret to be more than a knife—he forged it of experience and created it to serve as a lifeline. One unique Veff Serration... Read More
