MOD 1 Firearms Custom Built Glock 43

In this video we show off our new custom Glock 43 built by MOD 1 Firearms. This was a great shooting little handgun when we first got it and started testing it, but now it’s absolutely amazing! What? You don’t believe me? Well, listen to this…while we were out visiting our friends over at Homeland Guns, we decided to see just how far we could push our new custom Glock 43 that we had just picked up form MOD 1 Firearms. Our friend officer Yeti volunteered to be the one to take on the insane task of shooting three targets all in a row without any misses. The steel silhouette targets were placed at three different distances. Continue Reading

Glock 43 First Look Video

 

Today we take you along with us for our first trip to the range with the newly released Glock 43 single stack 9mm. The Glock 43 is a gun a lot of us have been waiting years for, especially since the release of pistols like the M&P Shield and the XDs. On our way to the range we stopped and picked up a few different varieties of 9mm ammo for the test. The little 43 ran like a top as far as reliability goes, didn’t have one single malfunction all day. We even got last round hold open on every magazine. The weapon is a little snappy on recoil, but that is to be expected given the size and weight of the handgun. Continue Reading

The New Sig MPX, It’s Not Perfect

We had a chance to take the new Sig Sauer MPX out for a workout the other day. At first glance we were in love with the MPX. The pistol looks to be well made, with it’s all metal construction and buttery smooth action. What can we say? This thing looks great! The Sig MPX comes in a very nice hard case with cut out foam that fits the gun and included accessories perfectly.The Sig handgun also comes with the new Sig SBX Brace on a folding adaptor that is already attached to the gun. The MPX also includes a sling, three 2″ aluminum rails and a full cleaning kit, very nice touches in our opinion. Continue Reading

Custom Built Glock 19 By Mod 1 Firearms

In this video we look at a custom built Glock 19 by Mod 1 Firearms. We had this Glock 19 worked over by the guys over at mod1 Firearms and the results were absolutely fantastic! Mod1 touched every inch of the gun, from the frame texturing to the custom slide milling. We couldn’t be more pleased with the work done on this weapon. What you see here will be my new EDC gun, and we will be doing long term testing and evolution on the gun. So stay tuned for those videos!

Remington Pulls R51 From Website

So it would appear that Remington has quietly pulled the R51 compact CCW 9mm pistol off of their website. We have also noticed that there are no Remington R51’s at any of the local shops around us. Does this mean that Remington is pulling the plug on this little handgun? Who knows? But, we have had more than one experience with the R51 and none of them were good.

Where’s My Gun? Remington R51 Update.

So Where’s our gun you ask? Where’s our Remington R51 to be specific? Well that’s a hard question to answer because we don’t know really, we assume it’s safe at Remington getting repaired but after over 1oo days who can be sure. We have called them and received no answers on why it’s taking so long other then to tell us it’s being fixed. Not only do we not have a pistol but we are out our money. We will continue to do update videos till we receive either the weapon back in working order, or our purchase cost back. and to be perfectly honest I’d rather have the money. Stay tuned to TacticalExistence for more updates.

First shots with the SCCY CPX-2

We took the SCCY CPX-2 out for the first time today. We ran a ton of different brands and types of 9mm ammunition through the pistol without so much as a single hiccup. The gun ran everything we put in it, and with more than 150 rounds down the pipe, the first test was a success. The CPX2 comes with two Ten round magazines  and both the pinky and flush fit mag plates. The trigger is a  double action long 9 pound pull with a long reset, but it is very smooth and comfortable to shoot. The three dot sights are very easy to pickup and accurate out to at least 20 yards, which is as far as we took it on this trip. The rear sight is made of steel and adjustable  for windage only.  Field stripping the weapon is also very easy and straight forward just as one would expect it to be. We will be doing a lot more testing on the SCCY CPX-2 over the next few months so stay tuned for the full review of this fine little handgun.
