Mission First Tactical was kind enough to provide me with a couple of their new weapon accessories, the React Torch Grip and the E-VoLV Battle Stock. Both are really easy to install and use, and they add some cool features to your rifle.
The first thing you’ll want to do is check out the video above. A MFT representatives will take you through attaching the battle stock. It took me less than a minute, though I didn’t attach the sling mounts so it was a bit easier job.
Since we have the video showing installation of the stock, let’s talk about some of the cool things the E-VolV Battle Stock adds to your rifle. First, the obvious enhancement is to your cheek weld. As any shooter worth his salt will tell you, having a proper cheek weld is incredibly important to consistent, repeatable accuracy. I found the cheek weld to be quite comfortable, though I was using a dummy AR in the office and couldn’t test it at the range by spending a bit of brass. Still, I could feel the difference immediately. Once installed, the E-VoLV Stock felt very sturdy and I wasn’t worried about it breaking or letting me down when needed. Right out of the box it’s tough to tell just how strong something like this is, and its light weight made me worry about durability, but once mounted it felt tough as nails.
In addition to the cheek weld, the coolest part of the E-VoLV is the waterproof battery compartments. Check out the pics above. You can’t quite see this, but the battery storage compartments stick in there very tightly so if you’re in the rain or slogging through a wet forest the batteries won’t charge off or make any noise from shaking. There are slots for 3 batteries on each side. It’s never a bad thing to have a few spare batteries, so this is a welcome little accessory to have.
The MFT React Torch and Vertical Grip is a great way to not only add stability to your AR, but it also provides some cool solutions for adding a weapon light. Check out the picture. Because of some smart inserts you can install a flashlight with diameters between 5/8″ and 1″.
This is actually perfect for one of my favorite new lights (that I’ll be taking on a camping trip to Northern Minnesota next week), the Streamlight ProTac HL LED Flashlight. It has a barrel diameter of 1″, and a tail cap on/off switch. The tail cap design is ideal for the React Torch, as there’s an integrated thumb activation switch to turn on the tail cap while maintaining a sure grip. If your flashlight has a pressure pad there’s also a pressure pad well on the left side of the grip so right handed shooters can easily activate the light.
To prevent accidental pressing of the tail cap, the React has a lock-out switch that acts as a safety for the button. Press it in and the light won’t turn on when you need it off.
Outside of the lighting opportunities you’ll get from the MFT React, you also get a fantastic grip that diminishes shooting fatigue and easy exceptionally easy to get a hold of due to a grooved gripping surface.
Another cool feature is the watertight storage compartment with customizable foam inserts to prevent rattling. You could put batteries, gun maintenance tools and more in there without adding any bulk. Like the E-VolV Battle Stock, the React Grip is lightweight and feels really strong. It’ll hold up to a tremendous amount of punishment without issue.
Adding the right accessories to your rifle is important to success. Just like making sure you have the perfect rifle scope, sling or holster, equipping your firearm with the perfect accessories helps take your shooting to the next level. Mission First Tactical is about the mission first, so you can count on their gear to take your shooting to the next level.
