The only decent concealable ones I know of are the spiritus covert and ferro slickster. Might be able to make the jpc work but idk. Also all of those are "concealable" as in, you could probably hide them under a coat. They make more concealable armor but you're gonna be confined to soft stuff like iiia
Message permalink: 710208244194214041
Okay yeah, I was thinking that stuff. And I'm talking something that I can wear slick under a coat. And throw a chest rig or velcro mag pouches on if needed.

My ferroro chest rig micro is pretty small. Fits three mags and I could conceal it under a sweatshirt with ease

I can get pics for you if you want when I get home
Message permalink: 710209323510399099
the overt and covert from spiritus are really about the same size. The only noticeable difference is that the overt has a little molle on the top half

I have a photo I think

mags may stick out a bit. The lower profile attachment is a plackard, and there's also a chest rig that can be mounted on it if you want an admin pouch

That's a rig though, not a PC

I mean, I'll also get a rig to throw over my carrier.

I have a dedicated PC with pouches and everything. But I also want something slick that I can wear for like PSDs

Apparently Shellback makes their own concealable carrier too.

I think I might get the Slickster when I come back.

I still need a medkit and better plates. Normally have a qor iceplate on there but it's not attached at the moment. Anything I don't need immediate access to goes in the haley flatpack molled to the back

Might as well run a SMERSH instead of that, it's got more mag pouches and a bigger space for an IFAK

Brush there's no room, had to attach it to the M-Lok
Message permalink: 710325183742869554
It's basically useless there. Either make room, or don't have it at all. Later on when you can afford it, good flip magnifier design leaves enough room for a flip up backup sight, such as the larue flip mount
Message permalink: 710325549486047367
Not all that great on that red dot anyway
Message permalink: 710325977460375553
Totally acceptable to not have backups if the magnifier doesn't leave room, but sticking it there anyway just makes you look bad, and shouldn't be relied on when mounted there anyway. Red dot's okayish, I mean they're surprisingly durable if that's what you can afford. Has inrange's stamp of approval at least.
Message permalink: 710326201411174440
Nothing wrong with the dot, just not really made for a magnifier

What's everyone's opinion on B.A.D. Levers? Worth using or no?
Message permalink: 710348451463954432
I don't have experience using them, which is why I ask.
Message permalink: 710348794893434921
BAD Levers are bad, the idea of using a finger in the trigger guard to drop the bolt on a loaded mag is a ND waiting to happen
Message permalink: 710373998650982429
@Cannibal1-1 utter nonsense. It needs to be trained with by people who aren't retarded. But calling bolt releases in trigger guards safety hazards is exactly why fat cops shoot themselves cleaning their glocks and think it's a design fault.
Message permalink: 710378537520988190
BAD levers may have actual mechanical problems but that is an operator deficiency
Message permalink: 710379094168305708
Applying latteral pressure to a small stob inside the trigger guard infront of the trigger is just begging for a ND, especially when factoring in the sudden shift in mass as the bolt goes home
Message permalink: 710385711504949322
Yes, experience with them can mitigate the risk as with anything but it is generally a good idea to keep none trigger related functions out of and slightly away from the trigger and trigger guard area
Message permalink: 710386307213557781
Yeah it makes you faster but I wouldn’t trust it on a duty rifle. Maybe if you’ve trained it exclusively
Message permalink: 710429718326804501
They cause extra wear on the bolt catch sear, leading to bolt catch failure, premature bolt drop, and a variety of other mechanical problems. They also actively cause nd's. People say they won't, then they nd in front of me at the range because their feelings can't override natural human clenching reflexes.

Message permalink: 710466427290910821
Bad levers basically do the opposite. After a while, you no longer have a bolt catch at all.
Message permalink: 710471888249552949
Guys faster than you'll ever be use standard controls... practice is worth more than any novelty crap 🤷♂️
Message permalink: 710474106952351905
If you want to increase the ease of use of your rifle, I suggest the geissele maritime bolt catch. It's much easier to hit without adding bullshit to break off in your fire control group

I've never seen how a BAD lever can cause excessive wear on the BCG or anything else. Training issues though, I can vouch for that one.

Message permalink: 710528070896844882
Another spot where im torn; when i do get another nice carrier, id rather it only be for training days at the range and stuff, not necessarily the vest im wearing to go on a long run or roll around in the sand with

@EDDSkitz you mentioned crye, do you run a JPC?
Message permalink: 710528968532557864
Actually I'm due for an upgrade, running an old TAG full coverage carrier. I dont like the JPC. I was looking at the first spear AAC, but they have been out of stock for a few months. Probably because they just got a military contract and are running production for that. I've tried both the AAC and the crye CPC, I like both.

They are super top notch stuff if you have the cash... the only reason I was looking and waiting on the AAC is the buckles. Would've spent my trump bucks on it, but decided to wait and see if they came back in stock. Replaced my RMA plates with some level IV hoplite plates instead.
