The International distribution program announced one year ago by Brownells was intended to empower the company presence worldwide, of course, but mainly also to solve several shipment/storage limitations or delays connected to some specific items, like gun parts or brass cases often difficult to ship worldwide.
After one year, the Brownells International Marketplace program is enriched by a number of new brands, and Brownells partners now have access to all receivers, frames, actions and cylinders offered by Brownells U.S. (H&K excluded), with an average shipping times to Europe that has been decreased by 25%.
The distributed brands list for Europe now includes: Aero Precision, Apex Tactical Specialties, Armalite, Benelli, Beretta, Bushmaster, Colt Defense, Command Arms, Kimber, Lone Wolf, Magpul, McMillan Stocks, Sig Sauer, STI International, Swift Bullets & Ammunition, Tacstar, Wilson Combat... and others...
Among the European market exclusives users can find the Jageman unprimed cases, from Jagemann Technologies, an US based manufacturer of handgun and rifle military-grade ammunition casings granting military and match specs on all its production line.
The Jagemann unprimed cases pass mercurial nitrate testing, to confirm quality, consistency and resistance to corrosion of the finished product, what could make the difference concerning a long use and reloading life. In addition to this, Vickers hardness testings are executed on base, neck, and head of the casings.
The Jagemann production runs are smaller than usual for larger manufacturers, and this allows for better quality standards. Dimensions are held to a tighter standard so that the final product performs exceptional every time. Dimensional inspection provides an high degree of precision when measuring the dimensional aspects of each casing, ensuring uniformity and concentricity of the final product, and exceptional performance in stress environments. Last, each cartridge design can be dimensionally customized for use with specific weapons and projectiles.
The AR Folding Stock Adapter Gen 3-M from Law Tactical is another European Market exclusive. It is an AR compatible folding stock adapter that works with direct impingement or gas piston systems 5.56 to .308, and fits A2, carbine, mil-spec, commercial or pistol buffer tubes and stocks.
This adapter is realized from 4140 hardened steel and uses standard, mil-spec buffer retaining pin, while a set screw prevents the adapter from loosening from receiver.
The low hinge design reduces interference with the charging handle, when charging the weapon. Furthermore, the hinge tension can be adjusted. In the bottom part of the hinge there is a quick detach sling attachment point.
