MGI LAUNCHES RATE AND RECOIL REDUCING BUFFER VIDEO RESPONSE CONTEST
One Lucky Winner Will Walk Away with a Hydra Rifle (Retail Value of $1,250)
Carducci Tactical is always looking for innovations in the shooting world. In addition, we are always looking for discounts and contests related to the shooting, hunting, and tactical gear world. We found a contest and company worth talking about this week when MGI, the manufacturers of the highly versatile Hydra Modular weapon system, announced the launch of their first large-scale contest, “The Bad, The Bold and The MGI Buffer Video Response Contest.”
The contest kicked off through YouTube, Facebook and Twitter on October 3rd, 2011. The contest calls on all fans to submit a video response featuring their gun with an MGI Buffer with D-Ring installed. One lucky winner will receive an MGI Hydra Rifle with a retail value of $1,250. The contest closes December 31st, 2011 at 11:59 pm EST. It is open to all responsible adults over 18 years of age who are legal residents of the 50 United States that have purchased an MGI Rate and Recoil Reducing Buffer.
Have you checked out the MGI Hydra Modular System? This is a modular weapon system designed with the end-user in mind. MGI uses standard barrels which allow the user to change calibers without tools in less than 90 seconds. Yep – that’s less than two minutes!
The base is the MARCK 15 5.56, also known as the “Hydra.” It is ready to fire out of the box. The system includes the lower receiver with a 5.56mm magazine-well, a QCB-C upper receiver and a 16-inch barrel. With this base system you can then purchase various magazine wels and caliber conversions. Simply change the barrel in seconds and utilize the correct magazine for the caliber you desire. I think this might be one of the most versatile rifle platforms. Currently you can fire 7 plus calibers including .22 rimfire, .223 or 5.56, 6.5 grendel, 6.8 spc, .450 thumper, .458 socom, and .50 beowolf.
Here’s another of MGI’s guns that looks interesting: The .45 Hybrid. From their website: “This hard-hitting weapon features the MGI Modular Lower with the M3 Mag well mated to a dedicated upper receiver chambered for .45 ACP. This blow back weapon allows the shooter to have the fun of shooting a sub gun style configuration of the Hydra, with the hard-hitting power of the well knownn .45 round, and at a reduced price compared to the full modular platform of the MARCK-15. This weapon comes with its own, airline approved, hard sided lockable case.”
I can’t wait to hit the range and try one of these guns. If you have tried one already, let me know how you like it. Brownells and Midway are distributors if you are looking to check prices. Several models have a MSRP less than $1000. As the price drops – well – these systems look more and more desirable. MGI has a video about this new system and you can check out the video here.
See you on the gun range!
