Day 2 – G-Code Assaulter's System Giveaway

Day 2's Contest has ended

A gift for you! The G-Code Assaulter’s system is a proprietary system from G-Code Holsters. The Assaulter’s system is based off of the G-Code Operator’s belt and comes in a wide variety of colors, camo, and setups. The nylon is a double-layered belt wrapped in Cordura wrap to improve the stability of the whole Assaulter’s system. The Cobra-style buckle is tried and true across the industry. The Softshell Scorpion Magazine carriers mount to the belt in the strongest, lowest-profile way to reduce the silhouette of the shooter. The Softshells use a proprietary clip system to mount the magazine carriers through the notches of the belt instead of around the belt. Also incorporated is the new GCA200 Optimal RTI Pistol Drop mount that utilizes a low-profile leg strap and a medical kit. This loadout is a masterpiece of years of engineering and finding solutions that work for a wide array of uses down range. The IWB GSM Carrier is a perfect solution for the discreet concealed carrier. The Phenom Stealth Holster is a low-profile, streamlined IWB setup — purpose built and engineered for security, concealment, and solid presentations. Both the GSM and Phenom Stealth are covered with “Tactical Fuzz” on the outside for all-day comfort. The 1.5-inch Active Response EDC Belt is purpose-built and pairs perfectly with the GSM and the Phenom Stealth to give you the edge and confidence you need to have a solid everyday carry. The 2Fer Combo Pack is an all-in one kit that contains 2 Bang Boxes, 2 Ammo Labels, and a 2Fer multipurpose transportable storage bag. It’s perfect for the range when hauling a full-blown ammo box is more than you need. The Bang Box is a solid and efficient practical kit with an infinite number of uses. The SOC RTI Holster is a revolutionary 2nd-level retention, injected-molded holster. The top frame can accommodate different lower Kydex cowlings for different light systems. It works specifically with RTI system accessories to give you multiple forms of carry to make your holster mission-specific. Combined value of this package is over $600.

Day 3 – Grey Ghost Gear Impact 24 Bag Giveaway

Day 3's Contest has ended

The Grey Ghost Gear™ Impact 24 is our latest backpack dedicated to the professional urban commuter. Ideal for those who travel via bike, unicycle, or skateboard, this 21.5-liter bag was designed specifically to organize everything you need for a full day out in the world. The front consists of three handy zippered pockets. The top pocket is perfect for a phone, wallet, keys, stunner shades, etc. There’s a built-in divider as well as three elastic loops sewn in to keep those items safe and at the ready. The middle pocket is almost identical, just a tad smaller for your other miscellaneous items like tools, snacks, etc. The bottom pocket actually goes all the way to the back panel of the Impact — plenty of room for a DLSR camera, larger tools, and more. The beauty of this pocket is it’s segregated from the Impact’s main compartment, so you won’t accidentally crush your lunch with items inside the interior area. Inside you’ll find a sleeve for medium-sized laptops or tablets, and ample space for small drones, a spare change of clothes, or your Ops Core helmet. On either side, there are zippered pockets flanking the sides that are perfect for storing charging cords, additional keys, or small tools. On the exterior of the bag, you’ll find daisy chain loops sewn along either side as well as parallel to the front pockets. Finally, a worthy host for your carabiner collection! These loops make it easy to clip on extra gear, as well as providing anchor points to lash wet raincoats or other items to the bag in a pinch. We thought it would be badass to custom make an exclusive, one-of-a-kind Impact 24 bag for RECOIL’s Giveaway using Black MultiCam fabric. Whoever wins, even we are jealous.

Day 4 – Radian Weapons Giveaway

Day 4's Contest has ended

Radian Weapon’s industry-leading Raptor charging handle is machined from 7075 aluminum and type III hard anodized. Whether palm “blading” or finger thumb charging the weapons, the motion is fast and fluid from strong or support side. The perfect complement to the Raptor is Radian’s Talon ambidextrous safety selector. The Talon is a modular design that can be configured in a 45- or 90-degree throw by simply rotating the shaft 180 degrees inside the lower receiver. The levers install using a precision machined dovetail interface with spring-loaded retention stud to lock the lever in place — no screws to come loose or break. The Raptor and Talon are compatible with AR-15/M4, AR-10/SR25, and various other semi-auto platforms. Visit for more information.

Day 6 – Aero Precision Giveaway

Day 6's Contest has ended

Aero Precision’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway features a custom M4E1 rifle finished in M81 Hunter Camo Cerakote by Republic Rifle. Let’s get into the details of this exciting giveaway!
The M4E1 receivers, machined from custom 7075-T6 aluminum forgings, provide a solid cornerstone that delivers aggressive, billet-like styling cues for any rifle build. The ATLAS S-One Handguard shrouds the 16-inch 5.56 NATO barrel and gives your hands a comfortable place to rest while controlling recoil due to the removed Picatinny section on the handguard. Combining the ATLAS S-ONE with the included Arisaka Defense Finger Stop will ensure ultimate comfort and control perfectly tailored for competition and target shooting. The barrel is topped off with a VG6 Epsilon Muzzle Brake that tames recoil reduction and mitigates flash signature. The receiver’s final touch features a Leupold LCO that provides a 1 MOA red-dot for quick and accurate target acquisition flanked by Magpul MBUS Pro iron sights.


Day 7 – Alien Gear Giveaway

Day 7's Contest has ended

The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes everything you need to carry inside the waistband (IWB), appendix (AIWB), and outside the waistband (OWB) using a paddle or slide. This kit also includes a free holster mount, so you can dock your handgun to a variety of surfaces.
After spending two years in development, the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack can effortlessly shift from one carry position to the next using zero tools and very little effort. Instead, carriers have the power to swap out a few parts to go from IWB to OWB or OWB to Appendix.
The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes an all-new IWB Holster, which is designed with improved CoolVent Neoprene for enhanced comfort and a lower profile for added concealment. This is the most advanced IWB holster on the planet!
With an optional passive retention device and a thumb release, the ShapeShift is capable of level 2 retention. Customize your retention with the turn of a few screws. It just doesn’t get any easier.

Day 9 – Grey Ghost Precision Giveaway

Day 9's Contest has ended

As more and more military lead farmers, LE departments, and alphabet agencies adopt the P320® as their current issue sidearm, Grey Ghost Precision knew the demand for a custom aftermarket slide was coming. GGP’s unique aftermarket GLOCK® slides are still highly coveted, even after nearly three years since their debut. Now SIG P320® series and M17 pistol owners are able to upgrade their compact or full-size length factory slides with some GGP flair.
The P320 offers greater customization options that most other service pistols. The ability to tailor the grip length, grip size, as well as slide/barrel length to individual user’s preferences are highly desirable options. Grey Ghost’s GGP320 aftermarket slides give the user even more layers of customizability, from three different MRDS footprints built in, as well as a choice of FDE Cerakote or Black/Grey Diamond-Like Coating options.
When engineering the GGP320 slide, GGP took their already established Dual Optic Footprint (Trijicon RMR and Leupold DeltaPoint Pro compatibility in the same physical space) and added a third checkbox: the SIG ROMEO1. That’s right, pick between three of the most popular micro red-dot optics footprints and mount them to the GGP320 slide right out of the box without any bulky adapter plates that would raise the optic above the bore axis. If you are a strict iron sights guy, GGP literally has you covered as all their stripped slides come with a G10 coverplate for when optics aren’t in use.
We could think of no better Christmas present for a lucky RECOIL reader than to win a GGP320 full size slide, custom Cerakoted in-house in a Black MultiCam camo finish. We just hope Santa left some 9mm in your stocking so you can send some rounds downrange to end 2019 in style.
Product MSRP: $429.99
