ARM AND EXMR posted on Weapon Evolution!
Yesterday my buddy Richard Kim posted a quick writeup on Weapon Evolution showing the new Ambi Mag Release and Advanced Safety Trigger Guard made by High Velocity Arms. I have to admit I was pretty excited as there haven’t been many new products lately. It seems like the recent “Panic Buying” really stifled the imaginations of manufacturers as they focus on just simply producing enough of their current offerings to meet demand. Hopefully now that things are slowing down they will be forced to start introducing new products like High Velocity Arms has done.
The High Velocity Arms Ambi Mag Release looks like a pretty solid piece featuring aggressive machining to give you good tactile response when placing your thumb on the mag release. It comes in both Black or NiB finish.
The part that stood out the most was the High Velocity Arms ASTG or Advanced Safety Trigger Guard. It installs just like pretty much any standard trigger guard but features two extensions that wrap around the rear of the magwell. These also feature the same aggressive texture but in this case it is for finger placement when not shooting. We always preach good trigger discipline. Basically, unless you intend to pull the trigger your finger should never touch it. You’ll see a lot of guys stipple the side of their Glock or M&P where their finger goes. Its just a way to know you have your finger in the right spot. Same here. The ASTG also comes in both Black or NiB finish.
Here is a picture showing both the High Velocity Ambi Mag Release and ASTG installed together.
I’ve got to admit, I do like the look of it. The mag release is something I would definitely use as I already do in other variants. One concern I do have with the Ambi Mag Release is that it wouldn’t allow you to use a BAD Lever which I do use on some of my guns. The only other issue is the cost as it seems to be a bit high but, as Richard pointed out last night as we discussed this, a few years ago no one would have thought we would be replacing our standard triggers and safeties for ACT Triggers and BAD-ASS’s. You be the judge. We would like to know your feedback in a polite and professional manner. Rude comments will be removed.These products can be purchased at the High Velocity Arms webstore. Once again, thanks to Richard Kim for bringing this new product to our attention. Make sure you check out his writeup on WeaponEvolution.com for additional information and….STICKMAN PICTURES!! :)X
