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.

And as always, we thank our patrons, whose loyalty and input have made this possible.

Stay tuned!


From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

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.

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.

After trying EVERY aftermarket trigger available, D-Rmor Gear’s recommended “best practices” is as follows:

-Innovative Gunfighter Solutions Enhanced Duty Trigger:

-D-Rmor Gear “NY-0” spring upgrade

-OEM NY-1 Trigger Spring Housing:

-OEM Minus Connector:


-Lone Wolf Distributors “Long Minus” 721 Connector:

The “NY-0” spring upgrade represents one of the simplest and least expensive upgrades you can make to your Glock-compatible trigger. Compatible with all models and generations of Glocks and Glock-compatible pistols.

**Pricing is as follows**

$5 per spring
5 for $20
10 for $30

Pricing includes delivery with tracking anywhere in the USA*. To order, contact us with the quantity you would like to purchase. Payment by cash or check only.

Make the upgrade today!

*Note: pricing is for spring(s) only, shooter must already have NY-1 spring housing.

Installation by armorer/gunsmith recommended. It is up to individual shooter to determine the suitability of this upgrade for their own safety and shooting requirements.
