Help maintain the readiness of America’s rifle by keeping it close at hand, properly loaded and capable of helping you to identify potential threats with innovative and cutting-edge technology.

1. Lessen the tedious task of loading magazines with the Caldwell AR-15 Mag Charger. Simply fill the supplied 50-round charger tray with ammo, snap a magazine into place and then push the plunger into the magazine to load five rounds per stroke. Larger magazines (or more than one 30-round variant) can be replenished with additional filling of the charger, resulting in more trigger time. 
MSRP: $99.99 btibrands.com

2. Battle-proven and 100-percent made in the U.S.A. with all-American components, Okay Technologies Surefeed AR Magazines meet or exceed demanding military specifications. Its hard-coat anodized finish comes in Mil-Spec Grey or Tactical Black. An anti-tilt follower and high-performance, Mil-Spec stainless-steel spring keeps rounds properly tensioned. 
MSRP: $18.95 to $19.95 surefeedmagazines.com

3. Boasting proprietary technology that wirelessly connects the pistol grip/controller and fore-end-mounted laser/light module on your AR rifle, the Crimson Trace LinQ System is powered by  CR123 batteries. It contains a green laser/300-lumen light component that mounts to Picatinny or Weaver rails. The grip is paired wirelessly to the module and allows you to easily control laser/light’s functions.
MSRP: $649 crimsontrace.com

4. A balanced blend of function and simplicity, the Grey Ghost Gear 2 Point Sling features elastic-nylon construction, which allows for freedom of movement while keeping the rifle close to the body when relaxed. The main section of the sling is padded for enhanced comfort and a quick-adjust feature adds versatility by helping users rapidly fine-tune the sling on the fly. Available colors include black and Coyote Brown. 
MSRP: $39.95 greyghostgear.com

5. Combining combat-proven, Ten-Speed military-grade elastic with an adaptable belt-attachment system anyone can use, the Blue Force Gear High Rise M4 Belt Pouch holds a single M4 magazine or similar-sized item higher up on the belt for maximum concealability. The split-attachment system mounts to everyday belts or duty belts with ease via dual hook-and-loop straps designed to straddle a belt loop, preventing inadvertent rotation.
