Being a protection specialist, full-time firearms and tactics instructor, worldwide protective services (WPS) instructor and former SWAT officer, I've had the opportunity to run a ton of different rifles over the years. Some worked and some didnt. After running all the major players and some smaller companies, I have come to favor a small hand full of companies. I've seen a bunch of start up companies that try to re-invent the wheel, if you will, and attempt to recreate a model that has consistently worked for over 50 years.
So when the guys and I at Mountain Tactical began talking about building a battle rifle that would run with DD, LWRC and BCO, we decided to keep it simple.When I worked for Academi (Blackwater USA) in the Firearms & Tactics Division, I really loved running my DDV5 because of how solid and reliable it is. So, when I took the Mountain Tactical G2G out for some range time, I had high expectations.
First drill...1-5 in under 3 seconds, 4 times in a row. This is a pretty good quality control test for any battle rifle. Well, the Mountain Tactical G2G ran flawlessly without a single stoppage or hiccup of any kind. I tried to get it to fail in every way possible. It ran like a champ. Very solid and felt awesome. Just by picking it up, you can feel the quality of the rifle. I have to mention that this was the first 5.56 rifle they built and tested. For a first prototype rifle to stand up to that kind of testing is beyond impressive.
So, thanks to the guys at Mountain Tactical for an outstanding battle rifle!
