The Nydar 47

And you thought your C-More was cool. . .
Behold the “Nydar 47”.
A friend of the shop walked through the door the other day with this, the grandfather of all red-dot sights. In several ways, it’s basically an oversize C-more that doesn’t use batteries. My google-fu tells me this was patented and offered in 1945 as a shotgun sight (this one is mounted on a Remington 11). It’s a civilian offshoot of the first optical gunsights used on WWII fighters. Fragile, hard to zero, but it works. In normal lighting conditions, the reticle shows up remarkably well, and with no electronics involved whatsoever, I suspect it’s still as “bright” as when it was made — 70 years ago!

The Beast – Our First Milling Machine

Say hello to our little friend. This beast is the Kuraki KV-700, the first machine TaylorFreelance purchased many years ago. At over 30 years old, this machine still produces high-quality parts day in and day out.
Unlike the “pretty” new machines in our shop, this machine is mean and ugly. It spews shavings all over the place (Cutting area is not closed-in like new machines) requiring lots of sweeping. You will notice that the bed of the machine moves, not the cutting head. If you stand to close you can get whacked!
For the geeks out there, this machine has only 35kb….thats kilobytes of memory and is connected to the computer by an old 25-pin serial cable with a custom wire that Mike put together. Oh yeah, it has a tape drive, as in paper tapes.

mpx-redOur SIG MPX +10 extensions have become an instant hit — all the more so now that we have them in stock in RED. If you’re looking to maximize the capacity of your MPX and add a little “flash factor,” this is your part. For shooting your MPX in USPSA’s hot new “Pistol Caliber Carbine” division, this part is a must-have. Tactical shooters can’t ignore adding 10 more shots with such a small increase in bulk. 100% CNC machined from billet aluminum, made in USA
