Defense Review first saw and shot photos of Mission First Tactical's (MFT) products at SHOT Show 2012, but we never published anything on them because, well, we just didn't. What can we say? We're busy over here. But the company really seems to be hitting its stride this year, and we're only too happy to cover their latest products from SHOT Show 2013.
Jason Juranis, MFT's Director of Creative Services, Advertising and Marketing, showed DR MFT's latest and greatest tactical AR accessories with Kryptek tactical/combat camouflage patterns on them, and they looked really good, particularly the MFT BATTLELINK Utility Stock (BUS) (9 oz.) with Kryptek Highlander and Typhon camo patterns. DefenseReview immediately liked the Kryptek camouflage patterns we saw at the Source One Distributors (SOD) booth at SHOT Show 2012. It was interesting looking, and very different in appearance from all the other military/tactical camo patterns out there. That's why it was one of the first items DR covered from that show. So, we were pleasantly surprised to see it on MFT's latest tactical AR acessories. It's a great teaming, in our opinion.
"We started working with the guys from Kryptek about two months ago. Great guys. We asked them if they would mind if we took the pattern and put it on some of our kit. Obviously, you can see the camo pattern is completely different than most of anything you'll see out there. But this stuff, for our money and from all of the testing and the things that we've [conducted], is literally testing off the charts in likeability, as well as concealment," said Juranis. He continued, "We have a bunch of our stuff dipped just as a, kind of a prototype for all of it, but it really came out great. We're really excited about the way it looks, and I think the consumer base and some of the people that we work with will be just as excited as we are."
While we're at it, we also wouldn't mind running some of MFT's other tactical AR accessories, including the MFT REACT Short Grip (RSG) stubby vertical foregrip, MFT REACT Torch Grip (RTG) vertical foregrip/tactical white light (tactical illumination) mount, MFT ENGAGE Tactical Pistol Grip (EPG16) and MFT AR-15/M16 Mag Coupler (Magazine Coupler) (M16MC), all of which are now available in Kryptek camouflage patterns.
Hopefully, all Kryptek camouflage patterns will be avaiable for MFT accessories. Kryptek has developed the following camo patterns, so far: Kryptek Highlander (arid/transitional terrain), Kryptek Nomad (desert terrain), Kryptek Mandrake (woodland terrain), Kryptek Typhon (urban terrain, Kryptek Raid, and Kryptek Yeti (arctic terrain).
