Treasure Chest: AR Elite Range Box
Many shooters know the frustration of constantly bracing a long gun against a leg, a table, the back of a chair … no more. The Otis AR Elite Range Box ships with everything pictured here (except, of course, the rifle and optic) and allows you the convenience of a maintenance vise while storing as easily as a toolbox. American-made and perfect for the novice and the expert, you can order one at OtisTec.com.
MSRP: $34 and up
Lever guns were the original American tactical carbines. And while millions of them remain in homes as defensive arms, their sights can usually use an upgrade. The Express rear unit from Skinner Sights is a lot simpler to use than the sometimes-complicated “buckhorns” found on many rifles, and the company’s Bear Buster front sight is quick to pick up even in low light. Many of Skinner’s sights (such as the Express above) are drop-in, screw-on units that attach without gunsmithing, and they’re all available at SkinnerSights.com.
