Industry Day at the Range Recap: The First of Many

Trinity Force has grown at an amazing rate in 2015, so we thought it fitting to show off some of that progress at the 2016 Industry Day at the Range before SHOT Show. Some friends at publications like The Firearm Blog, Black Sheep Warrior, and Gun Blast made appearances. We showed off some exciting new products that we’ll be releasing throughout 2016.

Stay tuned for more updates as we wrap up SHOT Show and be on the lookout for what is ahead this year!

Eighty Percenting It Just Got a Lot Easier

Defense Distributed has come out with a new breed of CNC mill that is perfect for churning out 80% lowers, and it requires nothing more than a Windows 7 operating system ( Mac version coming soon…). It’s probably one of the only affordable CNC mills on the market right now, and while does still have a price tag north of a thousand dollars, everything about it is open source, so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth if you put it to use in other applications as well.

Even the folks at WIRED magazine weren’t able to mess up a lower when they used it. Check out one of their writers put together an Ares Armor rig, and then head over to to reserve your mill today ($250 will hold your spot on the backorder list) Note: always follow your state’s laws and regulations when building an 80% lower.


Gear Buzz: Maklarbak Smart Mag

We ran into these guys at Shot Show, and we’re seriously excited about their product. They make smart magazine followers that lock the bolt open on the second-to-last round so you’ll never have an empty  chamber in your AR. The jury is still still out on if it’s going to catch on, but it’s an interesting concept.

Here’s a video of demonstrating how they work. Is this another geardo gimmick, or did they just reinvent the wheel ?
