Real M41A Pulse Rifle

Also found on Soldier Systems with more info available from their own website is this shit-the-bed cool rifle modelled on the Colonial Marines M41A Pulse Rifle from Aliens. The MAX-41A is currently in development and testing (according to their out-of-date website) and because I live in the UK, I definitely can't have one. More info and loads of pictures here.

Remington Modular Sniper Rifle

I've just seen this video of the new Remington MSR (Modular Sniper Rifle) over on Soldier Systems. Looks amazing.

Solitaire Maglite LED upgrade hack

Found this on a blog while actually looking for a hack to upgrade a solitaire maglite to something resembling useful. They're nice little torches, well made and solid, just hardly bright enough to see further than a few inches, which isn't much use in a torch. With the advent of cheap, bright LED technology, the poor little Solitaire has become redundent. This article explains how to install a 3mm LED into your Solitaire to make it pay it's way again.
