50-Round ZMAGs Will Be Available Online Soon

I just wanted to give everyone an update on production and shipping status for the 50-round ZMAGs. We have shipped all backordered ZMAGs that were a part of the pre-order. We are working our way through the waiting list for the 50-rounders currently. We should be through that list by early May. At that time, we will add links, so you can purchase directly from the site.

Thank you to all our great customers,

NRA Negotiating Away Our Civil Rights—IN SECRET!

I first learned of the back-room deal that is currently in the works between NRA heads and Congresspersons to get the ATF out of a tight spot on the classification of PGO firearms from David Codrea’s excellent article on the subject. (Note that the first link in his story links to Shockwave Technologies’ website.)

The “deal,” as I understand it is that Congress will “tweak” the law in order to get ATF out of this situation (and screw gun owners, no doubt) if the gun-grabbers in Congress can have a ban on tracer ammunition. And apparently, instead of perhaps, oh, I don’t know, asking the people who they represent (us), Congress is allowing the NRA to speak on our behalf, negotiating away our Civil Rights without our consent. What’s been termed a “compromise” in this “deal” means that we gun owners will lose something when it comes to PGO firearms—and the ability to purchase, own, and use tracer ammunition. I swear, every time I hear the word “compromise” when it comes to gun-grabbing, we gun owners always lose something—and never gain anything. I’m not sure that gun-grabbers even know what the word “compromise” means. (In my vernacular, a compromise would be: “Sure, you assholes in Congress can have tracer ammunition, but we the people get back machineguns.” Now THAT’S a compromise!)

Because the subject directly affects our business (regarding the Raptor Grip line), I wrote David Codrea to ask him if he knew anything more about what “tweaks” to the law the NRA and Congress are working on in secret. He responded very quickly. (David, again, I really appreciate the quick reply.) Being the upstanding journalist he is, he wouldn’t reveal anything more to me than was in the article because it might compromise his sources. He did, however, forward my email address to one of his sources, who wrote me later that same night.

Now, I doubt that that source wants his name out there at the moment, so I won’t reveal his name. (And if you contact me, I won’t tell you.) But he did direct me to several pieces of information that are currently available online about this PGO “issue.” Here are a few of them:

Now why do I believe Mike V. that Chris C. is lying? Because I was right in the middle of negotiating a deal with Mossberg for a bulk purchase of 14″ front ends for 500/590 guns. I was working with Joe Zakher (jzakher@maverickarms.com), whom I had met at the SHOT Show earlier this year. His last email to me was dated March 26th—and then pure silence. To this day, I still can’t raise him by email or phone. And I have heard from numerous customers that as of April 1st, Mossberg’s new “internal policy” is to no longer sell legal products (14″ front ends) to law-abiding citizens.

Something is up. And the silence from the NRA, Congress, ATF, and Mossberg is deafening.

Press Release: KAK and Shockwave Team Up to Create a Superior Pistol Stabilizing System

Oxnard, CA (April 6, 2015)—KAK Industry, a leader in firearms component manufacturing, announces that is has secured the exclusive distribution rights to Shockwave Technologies’ line of Blade pistol stabilizers.

KAK also reveals that it has developed a custom buffer tube for the Blade. The class 3 hard-anodized tube features 12 length-adjustment settings. Its anti-rotation and anti-thrust design mean that the Blade stays put without sliding forward or spinning. The tube is flush with rear of Blade when it’s installed fully forward. When installed fully out, the assembly is incredibly rigid. Being of the castle nut design, the KAK Shockwave tube accepts all carbine buffer systems, mil-spec receiver endplates, and aftermarket endplates.

Kurt Kosman, president of KAK Industry, remarked, “Our two innovative companies have combined efforts to bring a higher-quality, easier-to-use, more-affordable pistol stabilizing system to the market.”

“Teaming up with KAK Industry is a smart step for our small company,” stated Marty Ewer, owner of Shockwave. “We have a product that is an immediate hit with anybody who sees it. KAK is well-respected in the industry for its quality products and excellent customer service. And they have the resources to really catapult the Blade into the industry spotlight—pairing it with their KAK Shockwave tube and getting the system in front of virtually everybody through its rapidly expanding dealer network.”

KAK Industry will retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and package deals online as well as provide wholesale pricing to Web-based resellers and brick-and-mortar shops. Dealers interested in retailing the Blade and KAK Shockwave tube should contact KAK Industry through their website (www.kakindustry.com) or by phone at 805-981-4734. Shockwave will also retail Blade pistol stabilizers, KAK Shockwave tubes, and kits through its website and other Internet channels.

“Our goal is to make the Blade pistol stabilizer and KAK Shockwave tube 2015’s must-have accessories,” added Kosman.
