Lethal Lace

Lethal Lace

Lethal lace was one of the most interesting female specific products at SHOT.  It wasn’t another male product repainted pink in a feeble effort to pander to women (although it does also come in pink.) It is an actual product designed to address the unique issues associated with where a woman can hide a gun.

AR Upper

As close to full auto as you can get without the tax stamp … that is the goal of every budget minded shooter with a curiosity about select fire. Ever since the government imposed regulations on our right to bear “machineguns,”[1] manufacturers have created gadgets and gizmos to increase the rate of fire from semi-automatic guns while still maintaining the one pull, one fire designation by the ATF.

Cold Dead Hands Reviews: Renshaw Firearms RF-15

In Reviews by Staff Writer0 Comments

I’ve been asked to write reviews for a lot of different companies, encompassing a vast variety of products. Of course my favorite reviews will involve the use of a firearm in some shape or form, but when a firearms manufacturer sends me one of their prized creations and says: “Do what you want with it, for as long as you need to”, all I can say is: HELLZ YEAH!

When I was contacted by Scott Renshaw, owner of Renshaw Firearms Company of Jupiter, Florida, I figured they were just another of the many AR builders sprouting up across this great Nation. I was very wrong. Scott and his team have years in the medical community, designing and manufacturing instruments for physicians to complete the complicated tasks of precision brain surgery… and he now had just piqued my interest.  Scott went on to tell me more about his background in the medical field and I assure you, his company has more than enough credentials and professional references to choke a Brahma bull. He told me about his interests in hunting and his teams prior military experience as well as their unwavering Patriotism. So naturally, with all that said as well as CDH, Inc’s desire to help promote the small businesses in America; I was down to shoot and review this beautiful new creation.

Cold Dead Hands reviews the Alex Pro Firearms NiB Bolt Carrier Group

In Reviews by Patrick James0 Comments

Patrick James Shooting His ARWhen Garrett, from Alex Pro Firearms asked Cold Dead Hands to do a review on their Nickel Boron Bolt Carrier Group, I said to myself; “Sure, why not? I’ve heard a lot of hype over the NiB (nickel boron) plating, but never actually tested one.” Let’s face it, if you’re like me, who wouldn’t want something that makes clean up easier? Just ask my ex’s… I hate cleaning and sure enough, a NiB plated bolt carrier makes clean up a breeze.

Now before I get into the details of the review and the “praise” this company and their BCG will inevitably receive, I’d like to take a minute or two to explain some of the details regarding Nickel Boron plating.

Nickel Boron coatings are columnar in growth resulting in a distinct nodular topography which serves to reduce surface to surface contact of two mating / sliding surfaces reducing drag / friction. The nodular structure dissipates heat at greater efficiency due to greater surface area. Simply put; it needs less lubrication to slide more efficiently.
