Any recommendations?

My well-used Benchmade 942 Osbourne Folder which many of you have seen before (I think I’ve had it for nearly 15 years) along with a brand new CRKT Folts Minimalist Tanto.

I don’t know about you, but I’m adding these to my emergency car kit right now!

My First Benchmade

This was my first Benchmade knife, and one of my favorites. I think I got it around 1994 or so.

It has a tanto style blade with reverse serrations. The handle is very basic, smooth and with no guard to prevent your hand slipping down the blade. This knife is for slashing and cutting rather than stabbing.

At 9″ open, it’s a decent sized knife with a 4″ blade. I didn’t measure it, but I’d say the blade thickness is about 3/16″. It’s 5″ closed.

There are no markings other than ‘Benchmade  USA’ and the Bali-Song butterfly logo. I’d love to find out what model this is and who designed it. I either threw the box out long ago, or it’s sitting somewhere in the abyss called ‘the garage.’ If anyone has a clue, please comment.

This knife is also the only one I’ve ever dropped in a public toilet. 😛

XRAIL Systems

The NEW XRAIL System from RCI is an auto indexing loader for shotguns. Operating as a magazine extension for shotguns, it allows up to 23 rounds to be loaded without modifications your gun and no gunsmiting required.

XRAIL Systems are Xtreme Roth Auto Indexing Loaders for shotguns.  It is a magazine extension system for shotguns that will allow a shotgun to have extra usable rounds of ammunition.  An XRAIL System loads the same way you would normally load your gun.  Once the main tube is full, you rotate the XRAIL System to the next auxiliary tube and load.  You repeat until all tubes are full.   When you shoot, the tubes will automatically rotate back to the main tube as the ammunition is unloaded.  The XRAIL System is flexible enough to be “topped off” or if not needed, you do not have to fill the auxiliary tubes and just use the main tube like you would normally use your shotgun.

 Currently available for:

  • Remington® System:  Works on Remington® 870, 1187, 1100 12ga shotguns
  • Benelli® System:  Works on Benelli® SBE, SBE2, M1, M2, M2 tactical 12ga shotguns
  • FNH System: Works on FNH SLP shotgun
