U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Fact: Night vision is awesome, but is made infinitely better with the addition of an IR illuminator like the Odin IR from Olight. Why? Because even the best NVGs need an external IR illuminator to fully maximize the clarity of the image delivered by the device’s tube. While this isn’t always the case under certain circumstances – like a full moon over a snow-covered field – but for areas with decent amounts of canopy or dense overhead foliage, an illuminator is a must. a steel target at 35 yards, no moonlight shown through a white phosphor PVS-14 without…

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The Kalashnikov USA KR-103 SFS – the AK for shooters too young to have bought Arsenals at a good price who want an accurate clone of a modern AK-100 series rifle. What exactly that means, I’ll get into shortly, but for the sake of brevity, this means that the KR-103 SFS includes several desirable features found on current-issue AKs that are very cost-prohibitive to add to more traditional AKM rifles.
