If you carry a magazine-fed long gun, it’s a snap finding good pouches. There’s a virtually endless selection.

Carry a shotgun? You have about three choices: cumbersome pouches, even more cumbersome bandoleers, or cards. And most if not all of those cards use elastic that goes flaccid after use. Not something you want retaining your ammo in a critical situation.

With an eye towards fixing that, D-Rmor Gear has developed the Enhanced Shotgun Card. Built with the usual D-Rmor Gear attention to detail, the FragTuf(TM) Enhanced shotgun cards go far beyond the norm.

Incorporating D-Rmor Gear’s new FragTuf(TM) technology, all critical seams boast dual-stitched mil-spec Nylon AND mil-spec Kevlar thread. The shotshells are retained, not with wimpy elastic (that WILL lose its tension in short order), but with MIL-A-A-55301 IR/Berry compliant webbing. A Trelleborg AB HANK pull-tab completes this rugged ensemble. The hook-covered rear surface allows mounting to any loop-covered field.

And as if all of that isn’t enough, the Enhanced Shotgun cards come with an unlimited, lifetime, fully-transferrable no-bs guarantee. If you break it (and please tell us how you managed that!), just get it back to us, and we will repair or replace at our discretion.

Initially available in 3-, 5-, and 7-shell configurations, the D-Rmor Gear Enhanced Shotgun Card can be had in Black, Coyote, and Multicam colorways.

Normally priced at $15, $18, and $22 respectively, get yours at the pre-sale price of $12, $15, and $19! (Pre-sale good through February 1st).

Every once in a while, an old design needs an update. Sometimes it’s small, and sometimes it’s big. We think the new D-Rmor Gear HatchBack Shotshell Card falls into the latter category.

If you carry a shotgun and a plate carrier, you know that there isn’t very much love from the gear world. There are either cumbersome cards that don’t really fit, or bandoleers/slings with elastic that wears out and drops shells when you need them most. And then, you have the choice of either MOLLE, or loop backed carriers, but you have to choose one.

Enter the HatchBack. Designed to do three things better than any other shotshell carrier on the market:

-To SECURELY hold three 12G shotshells of any size, while allowing quick access


-To enable the card to be used on either MOLLE grids OR loop fields.


-To exceed the durability of any extant shotshell card

To address the first criteria, D-Rmor Gear created a card that utilizes 1″ Berry and IR compliant Nylon webbing, which firmly grips the shells, and will not fray, sag, or lose elasticity (like ALL elastic shell holders will with use). Is it more difficult to build? You bet. But once you try it, you will realize why it leaves elastic shell holders in the dust.

The second criteria is where the HatchBack gets its name. With the use of Velcro OneWrap(TM), the Hatchback lets the user go from MOLLE to loop field in seconds. On MOLLE fields, a front flap protects the shells while keeping them at the ready, while for loop-field use, the shells are free to be used in either orientation.

The final criteria is fulfilled courtesy of D-Rmor Gear’s revolutionary FragTuf(TM) construction methods. Using a dual-stitching method, we combine mil-spec Nylon AND mil-spec Kevlar thread into every critical seam, as well as incorporating Trelleborg AB’s rugged HANK material.

No other shotshell card offers you the versatility, security, and durability of the HatchBack. Made with innovation and the absolute best materials and workmanship available.

Plus, it comes with a lifetime, unconditional, fully transferable, no-BS guarantee. If you break it (and please tell us how you managed it!), just get it back to us, and we will repair or replace at our discretion.

Initially available in Black, Coyote, and Multicam, with more options planned.

Pricing is $32, with a special pre-sale price of $26 until February 1st.

Get your HatchBack, and show your shotgun some love.

After five years of testing, design, retesting, and redesign, the wait is over: announcing the D-Rmor Gear Enhanced Weapons Sling.

With so many slings on the market, how could there be any room for improvement? Well, for starters:

-Trelleborg AB HANK or low-profile padded shoulder pad

-Ruggedly built, with all critical seams stitched with both mil-spec Nylon and Kevlar threads

-Convertible 2-1 with two onboard methods, with emergency bailout Ghillietex buckle or Nexus D-ring for HK clips.

-Primary body made from MIL-A-A-55301 IR and Berry compliant 1″ webbing to be compatible with ALL end-user sling hardware.

-24 inches of built in adjustment, with 13″ of quick adjust.

-Unconditional, no-BS lifetime guarantee, repair or replace.

Finally, in spite of the premium materials, the extra time required to build, and the innovation, the AE-SIR was intended to be as affordable as possible. You don’t have to break the bank to equip all of your long guns with what we believe is one of the best slings for the money.

Available in Black, Coyote, Multicam Original, Multicam Black, Multicam Alpine, ATACS-AU, ATACS-FG, Kryptek Typhon, Kryptek Mandrake, and Kryptek Highlander, with more patterns planned.

Pricing is normally $44, and $51 (for the XL and Padded versions respectively) per sling, but limited pre-sale price is $39 and $46 per sling (pre-sale ends Feb 1st).

New Product Rollouts

Posted: January 21, 2019 in Uncategorized

In honor of SHOT Show 2019, D-Rmor Gear is proud to announce several upcoming new products, and a new direction for D-Rmor Gear as a whole.

For nearly five years, we have endeavored to keep up with the demand for our Original Spall Guards and Extreme Duty Plate Backers. New designs were created, but simple demands of time prevented us from bringing them out as quickly as we would have liked.

Last year, we released the revolutionary C2 armored pelvic concealment holster, and the response was gratifying.

This year, we are even more excited to announce nearly half a dozen unique and highly innovative products, some that have been in development for many years. While we will still be offering our Original Spall Guards and soft armor, they will no longer be our sole focus.

It seems you can’t open a gun mag or blog these days without seeing the .224 Valkyrie mentioned. It’s the new hotness, and everyone wants to shout its praises from the rooftops.

After doing my due diligence, I will admit it has impressive performance compared to similar rounds. But here’s where I am going to dissent from all the cool-kids touting this cartridge: it’s going to end up as nothing more than another 6.8 SPC, a niche round kept alive by a few die-hard supporters.

And the biggest reason for this? One word: magazines.

Initially, before realizing that this round would not fit in any of the excellent industry standard AR magazines (Pmag or Lancer), I was intrigued by the potential of this round- shooting high-BC 90gr bullets out to 1200 meters is nothing to sneeze at.

My first question was, how many will fit in a standard 30 round mag?

None? Pass.

This round was supposedly designed with the AR platform in mind. If so, the designers made a tremendous blunder by not taking into account the dimensions of the standard magazine. The 6.8 SPC, an admittedly superior round, has essentially died out and been relegated to a hard-core contingent of supporters that are willing to put up with spotty to non-existent magazine availability. The same will happen to the .224 Valkyrie.

The .300 Blackout, on the other hand, is an example of a new round that took off and is becoming more and more popular each year, due to the ease of conversion. Same bolts and mags, requiring only a barrel swap. The same could be said, to a lesser extent, of the .458 SOCOM, which only requires a new bolt and barrel. A magazine (especially such universally excellent magazines as the PMAG and Lancer) is the HEART of a weapons system.

And with that said, there are several cartridges that offer significant improvement over the 5.56 without resorting to wacky proprietary parts (bolts and/or magazines, 6.5 Grendel I am looking at you).

These include the 6.5 PCC (Patriot Combat Cartridge) and .25-45 Sharps, both of which use 5.56 brass, bolts, and magazines. Either of these rounds offer QUITE respectable performance improvements over the 5.56, and I am rather surprised that they are not far more popular (being 6.5mm and 6.35mm diameter rounds respectively).

I will concede, the Valkyrie is an excellent, low-recoil bolt gun cartridge, and will likely remain quite popular among PRS shooters.

But it is absolutely not appropriate for a standard AR, simply due to its incompatibility with standard magazines. In short: don’t tout a brand new cartridge as “designed specifically for the AR” and then fail to make it fit the AR! Here’s a hint: if people have to buy special magazines, there’s no reason not to just go with the large frame AR platform. And honestly, if you are using a .224 Valkyrie in a bolt gun, why not just go with a .22-250?

Speaking of which…

If you need to stretch out to 1200 meters, use the right tools (6.5 Creedmoor in a large frame AR would be an excellent choice, and also an example of a well-designed, well thought-out cartridge that will quite possibly become the standard intermediate military round within the next few years).
But in closing, it is good to see this willingness to innovate and experiment, and with any luck, we will see even more innovation in the next few years.

Semper Fi, Gunny.
