Gifts for Hunters: GL Shock, RDS, M21, Ultimag 5R, AGM500FKSB


The holiday season is upon us, and if you’re anything like me you have several folks on your list to buy for that are avid hunters. Here at Mako, we often market our items as being perfect for law enforcement, military, or the everyday shooter but may not mention that there are a lot of great options for hunters

A great option for big game hunters who may want to ease the recoil on their shoulder is our GL-Shock buttstock. This is a robust recoil reducing collapsible buttstock that is perfect for 5.56 & larger caliber AR15’s, .308AR 10’s. An addition available if you’re running an optic on your rifle is the GSCP, a cheek riser that attaches directly to the GL Shock. This buttstock also features an integrated storage compartment, perfect for batteries, sight tools… or beef jerky! (You may laugh, but I’ve seen more than one hunter use this as a “tactical snack compartment”!)

Are you a predator hunter and want an option for a new optic to assist in hunts for coyotes and hogs? Check out Meprolight’s TruDot RDS and M21 options. Not only do these optics offer a wide variety of reticles and battery -vs- tritium options, they are both night vision compatible!

One staple that is in every hunter’s gun safe is a shotgun. I’ve just treated myself to an early Christmas gift and installed an AGM500-FKSB on my trusty and faithful Mossberg 500. The AGM500-FKSB is a great option for those who may want something a little more compact when they’re trying to climb in and out of the tree stand or deer blind… the folding and collapsible features of this buttstock are perfect for this, as well as a great option for customizing the fit of this shotgun to multiple users.


Well there you have it… some of our top picks for hunters for the holiday season—now available at 30% OFF as part of our Black Friday Sales Event.

Happy Holidays!


Buyers Beware: Don’t be Fooled by FT Bullseye Poseurs

It’s true; the Meprolight FT Bullseye is a one-of-a-kind rear-only micro optic pistol sight. Now, for those industry buffs who really know their sights, they might recall the TAS- which is also a rear-only sight. Those buffs might think that the FT Bullseye is a copycat version of the TAS, and they’re not entirely wrong, but they’re not entirely correct, either. Some consumers have been writing in to let The Mako Group know that some resellers are showing the FT Bullseye and selling the TAS sight, but The Mako Group urges consumers to make sure they not only understand the differences between the two sights, that they are also purchasing from trusted retailers and are being sold the correct equipment.
