There is something about a custom Karambit. I suppose there is something about most any custom knife really, but at times I find myself holding a custom knife that is just too perfect, and way to god damn expensive, and I find myself asking, what is the damn point? For this very reason, I often find myself magnetized to custom knives that exude a sort of functional appeal over a knife that may very well function, but is just too glassy and smooth, too perfect. I guess that it is like that line from the move Fight Club, about that Ikea glass ware with the tiny imperfections that were proof that it was made by the hard working indigenous people of.. wherever.
I don’t often find myself weighting in on a product steeped in controversy but it seems that I had set my self on that track when I purchased the new Trijicon SRS red dot optic.

A variety of business obligations involving travel kept me on the road shortly thereafter, so my efforts to get in any serious range time were greatly hindered in the weeks that followed.
However, during one of these weeks I received an email from Tac-con informing me that they had a media event in the works and wanted to invite me. Apparently my door knocking campaign, while searching out the 3MR trigger early on, had gotten the attention of the media company who was facilitating the event.
It seemed that the event would entail, a tour of the manufacturing facility, a Q&A session and range time sponsored by Tac-Con. So I figured, what better opportunity to gain some additional perspective. Continue reading »
Tac-con 3MR PART 1 OF 2
Since the Shot Show, there has been a good deal of fuss as well as nay saying about a potentially rocket fast new trigger system from a company out of Phoenix Arizona, called Tactical Fire Control, aka Tac-con. This trigger system, known as the 3MR (3rd mode) was said to be capable of near full auto speeds, have very short uptake and ZERO over travel. But, was this all true?
Hello Max Venom blog followers, in the case you missed us, we haven’t gone away. Despite a bit of ball dropping combined with a lot of travel and few ins-and-outs of the hospital, we are back in action and happy to bring you a review that has been in the works for… far too long, if I am going to be completely honest with you. So, without further ado, let’s get down to it!
