    Must have for AR15 cleaning

    posted by TenRing on 12/26/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Easiest tool for routine cleaning. Simply spray some CLP into the barrel and chamber, then pull through from the chamber end. Repeat a few times until the chamber and bore are shiny and clean.
    Cons:
    Only con might be that they eventually wear out (takes at least a few years of consistent use), and if you need to scrub out co...

    Tiny Laser

    posted by TenRing on 04/29/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Tiny size, actually smaller than I expected. Great build quality. I was surprised at the finely machined caps on both ends with nice smooth threads and no plating flash.
    Cons:
    Because of the size, small batteries have to be used. This means short run times. I'd say you'll get about 20 minutes of contin...

    Killer Deal

    posted by TenRing on 04/28/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Price, of course. Easy to cycle through the modes, the button pokes out the side. Plenty bright for doing detailed work in your hands, such as tying fishing knots at O'Dark thirty.
    Cons:
    Build is kind of flimsy, and the plastic tabs that hold the light to the brim are VERY flimsy and break easily if you pull them...

    Good bang for the buck.

    posted by TenRing on 04/18/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Price of course. Functional and easily removed clip. Relatively lightweight for its size. Can tail stand. Rubber ring for cigar hold (tacti-cool pistol technique). Works with LiFePO4 RCR123s (sold here) just as well as CR123 primaries. Takes common lamp ass...
    Cons:
    I never understood the reverse clicky on a light that is simply on/off. A forward clicky is so much more useful, and would at l...

    Great entry level LiFePO4 battery

    posted by TenRing on 02/04/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    -Cheap price. -LiFePO4 chemistry, which is lower maintenance than LiIon. -Seems to be a true 350mah. If it weren't, it wouldn't last nearly as long as it does in the fenix TK10 they're primarily used in.
    Cons:
    None except there are newer/better versions of the CR123 form factor with LiFePO4 chemistry. It would be nice if DX carried tho...

    Great picatinny rail for projects.

    posted by TenRing on 04/12/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Standard aluminum MIL-STD-1913 rail. Perfect for mounting any accessories like lights, grips, sights, scopes, etc. Even comes with special round countersink nuts, which can be very useful for certain applications for mounting the rail itself, as seen in m...
    Cons:
    Fairly rough machining. Lots of tool marks. Poor/thin painted finish.

    Great mount for 1"/2.5cm lights.

    posted by TenRing on 03/31/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Price, of course. Solid build. Everything locks up very well on a MIL-STD-1913 picatinny rail.
    Cons:
    -Very limited clamping distance/adjustment. If the light or object in the mount is not pretty much exactly 1"/2.5cm, you'l...
