After nearly four years of research, testing, and evaluation, D-Rmor Gear is proud to announce the release of their newest innovation: the “NY-0” trigger spring upgrade.

For many years, countless Glock shooters have known the secret to an improved trigger- the NY-1 trigger spring module and a minus connector. Providing an enhanced feel and greater reliability (since the original coil tension spring is one of the few parts known to fail), the NY-1 was not without drawbacks- namely, a significantly heavier trigger pull (between 6.5# and 7.8#), even when combined with a “minus” connector.

Some shooters, trying to return to a lighter pull, remove the spring from the housing altogether, thus guaranteeing imminent failure, as polymer alone is not sufficient to survive the many tens of thousands of compression and extension cycles required of this vital component.

In the process of developing an improved alternative, D-Rmor Gear went through dozens of different springs, experimenting with a variety of materials and spring rates, until a customized solution was arrived at.

The result: the D-Rmor Gear “NY-0” trigger spring upgrade. Designed to eliminate the drawbacks of the NY-1, and provide the shooter with the best trigger pull attainable. Now you can have it all:

-Optimized pull weight (5.1# to 6.4# with “-” connector depending on individual weapon/Gen)
-Enhanced reliability (no coil tension spring to break)
-Refined trigger feel- similar to a fine DA revolver
-Maintains the option of “staging” the trigger, something lost when using the NY-1
-Authoritative reset- makes shooting from the reset much easier

Made from the finest US-sourced music wire, and coated with the industry-leading anti-corrosion treatment, these springs will last a lifetime of shooting.

For the past nearly four years, D-Rmor Gear Actual has been relying on one -and only one- source of bad ass caffeination: Black Rifle Coffee Co.

Started by SOF combat veterans, Black Rifle combines roasting expertise with uncompromising support for the 2A, military vets, and our great country.

Incredible coffee, from a company that is unfailing and unapologetic in its support for our rights, our vets, and our country. What more could you ask for?

Even though I mostly focus on armor here, sometimes I just have to vent. And that time is now.

Recently (as in, the past several years), I have seen more and more “custom” pistols (mostly Glocks, but up to and including 1911s) with what I can only term “Debris Entry Ports” cut into the slides.

Referred to as “windows” or “lightening cuts,” the only thing I can think of when I see these is “wow, that’s an expensive cutaway demonstrator.” Pistols have dust covers for a reason- it is to prevent crap from entering into the space where the barrel, slide, and recoil system function. Cutting “windows” (I guess so the shooter can make sure their barrel didn’t get up and walk away when they weren’t looking) circumvents the dust cover.

The reasons I have heard for doing this range from “it reduces the reciprocating mass of the slide, making the gun more reliable and lessening recoil” to “it looks cool.” I take exception to the first, and shake my head at the second. Reducing the reciprocating mass of the slide will make the gun LESS reliable in feeding, since less mass means less momentum to strip the next round out of the magazine. And again, less mass will translate in GREATER felt recoil, as mass is what absorbs the impulse (compare a steel 1911 to a polymer pistol, all else being equal, the 1911 will have less felt recoil).

Intentionally circumventing a critical design feature (the dust cover) in a tool designed to protect life and limb, because “chicks dig it,” is…well, not particularly bright. If it is going to be a pampered race gun, only to be used for dropping steel plates or punching paper, go for it. But as a tool of self-preservation, function should always trump form. No firearm for “serious” work should have Debris Entry Ports.

And that’s just about all I have to say on the matter.

After more than 7 years in development, I am proud to announce the release of the C2 (Cover and Concealment) Armored Deep Concealment Holster, a groundbreaking concealed carry solution unlike any other.

Starting with a foundation of FR Denim gives this holster a comfortable, breathable, and durable backbone. From there, things get even more innovative.

Pelvic concealment is widely regarded as the most covert form of carry, but many have concerns about carrying a weapon in this region of the body. In yet another first, the D-Rmor Gear C2 incorporates several layers of integral woven aramid in the lower half of the holster, completely encapsulating the muzzle and all but eliminating the danger of an inadvertent discharge.

As an additional optional feature (and making the C2 truly unlike anything else), the C2 will also accept a custom-designed soft armor panel (equivalent to Level 2A) in a compartment behind the weapon.

Adding negligible weight and bulk, this panel will increase peace of mind by providing protection to a very vulnerable area of the body. End user has the choice of woven aramid or advanced hybrid wovenate materials. In order to keep the holster as thin and light as possible, an optional removable moisture barrier pad is available for end-users that want to prevent sweat from affecting susceptible weapons. The armor panels come standard with breathable, moisture barrier cover fabric shell.

As a final touch, the C2 comes standard with dual-elastic suspension system, extending the usable life of the holster and ensuring that it remains snug and secure at all times.

The C2 is designed to accommodate current compact handguns (G19, Sig P-320 Compact, S&W M&P Compact, etc.) is fully ambidextrous, and will accept one or two magazines in the off-side pouch (or two weapons, if the wearer is so inclined).

If you have a concern that your weapon will not fit, or would like to discuss a custom size, please contact me.

The C2 is fully Berry Amendment compliant, proudly made by hand in the USA.

The C2 is guaranteed for 3 years against defects in workmanship, and will be replaced or repaired at my discretion. Pricing is set at $130 for the base holster, armor panels start at $109, and optional non-armor anti-moisture pads at $20. Purchase all three together for a 10% discount Please email to place a pre-order, delivery projected for Mid-March.

When ordering, please specify your waist size, as this is customized to you during construction.

In celebration of SHOT, I will be releasing several new products starting on January 23rd. Several of these have been in development for many years, and it is with no small amount of excitement that I will be unveiling them.

Stay tuned!

To everybody who contacted me and ordered in 2017, my heartfelt thanks. Though a challenging year, it also saw a lot of great things. 2018 promises to be even better.

A couple changes are coming to the site:

First off, I will be adding a page for in-stock items. As I catch up on my backlog, and bring new developments out, I will at times have an item or two available for immediate purchase. Check back often, as it will be fluid.

Secondly, I have been asked why I am requiring an NDA for my spall guards. In as few words as possible, it is the only way for a small fish like myself to protect my intellectual property. It has come to my attention that last year, my proprietary technology was nearly misappropriated. As a result, I require an NDA for spall guards. I appreciate the inquiries regarding this.

Finally, there are several new items coming down the pike! 2017 saw the release of D-Rmor Gear Blades, 2018 will see two or three (possibly more) new additions!

Again, I thank everyone for their continued support and kind words of encouragement. It really does make a difference.
