Is Flecktarn NIR Compliant?

There was a pretty good response to the somewhat of a joke-post about MultiDoge (DogeCam) being NIR compliant or not. So, why not make this an actual series and get something out of it? Hopefully I can post some of the more obscure and harder to find patterns that I have access to for those of you who make your own gear.

So, how did genuine Flecktarn material do under Infrared?

Why everyone needs an AR-15 – from Issac Botkin

T.Rex Arms produced this amazing 30 minute video about not just the AR-15 but rather an entire abridged history of the development of “militarize” firearms. Those who oppose civilian ownership of any weapons that may or might be used by military personnel are likely not being truthful (or perhaps are completely ignorant) regarding the history precedent of the subject. The production quality here is off the scale. A big thumbs up from 30MC (I have watched it three times). If I have convinced you to give the video a shot then please budget the time to watch it all the way through.

It just so happens that I was working on a write-up that was basically along the same lines as this video. As there is no way I could say things better I will most likely be pivoting that write-up to tackle a different angle of the argument. Stay tuned for that.

Green and White Phosphor Night Vision. What’s the difference?

Night Vision used to always be green, right? That is certainly how I remember it. All of a sudden this pale bluish-white image started appearing in intensifier tubes and everybody had to have it. Is it better than green? The price it commands seems to think so.

Is MultiDoge NIR?

Since S2 Underground and Garand Thumb both have videos circulating about NIR (Near Infrared) compliance of your gear and clothing 30MC figured it was time to do our part and find out the question that nobody has answered. Is MultiDoge (Sometimes known as “DogeCam”) NIR compliant? We put on the lab coats and went to work for you. The testing resulted in three images. Doge under white light, under NOD (night vision) and again under NOD but with the onboard illuminator turned on. After many minutes of date calculation and peer-review(ish) consultations we can firmly say…

300 Blackout: Sig vs Q

The boy are at it again. Joe and Geoff put on the white lab coats and do science. Don’t forget to subscribe to their YouTube channel.

From the video:
A little back to back audio comparison between a 6.75in Sig MCX with the SRD762Ti-QD suppressor and an Aero Precision build with the 7in Q Honey Badger barrel and the Q Thunder Chicken suppressor. Ammo for both guns was Hornady Black 208gr subsonic. As you can see, the Q build did not like this particular ammo with the current gas setting. This was the first time running this ammo and the first time I’ve ever had gassing issues with the Q setup.
