Mako Group’s New Recoil Butt Pad Includes Monopod

Mako Group's New Recoil Butt Pad Includes MonopodFARMINGDALE, NEW YORK – The Mako Group (“Mako”), a leader in manufacturing, marketing and distributing weapons accessories, announces their new GM-RBP1 product – the onlystand-alone recoil butt pad with fully-adjustable monopod for AR-15/M4-style 6-position stocks.

The GM-RBP1, manufactured by Global Military Gear, is an easy-to-install butt pad which simply slips onto the rear of any AR-15/M4-style 6-position stock without the use of any tools. To operate the monopod, simple pull out the monopod leg to the desired length and it will lock into place. The monopod not only offers four locking positions, each 1″ apart, but also offers an additional 4″ of fine-tuning length via a hand screw at the bottom of the monopod, for a total length of approximately 8″.

Having a monopod incorporated into the butt pad increases shooting accuracy by providing a stable shooting platform and also allows the shooter to concentrate on their shot instead of handling the rifle. When the monopod is not being used, the monopod retracts totally out of the way up into the recoil pad.

In addition, the GM-RPB1′s textured non-slip back helps prevent weapon slippage and is designed to withstand high impact recoils for maximum control.
As with all of The Mako Group’s products, the GM-RBP1 comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

“Today’s butt pad products do not traditionally include anything other than the actual butt pad, except for a few stocks that include an incorporated monopod. However, these expensive stock/monopod combination products typically range in price from US$200 – US$600 or more”, says Addy Sandler, The Mako Group’s CEO. “Our new recoil butt pad with an adjustable monopod (GM-RBP1) offers a totally unique butt pad design and innovative features at a very affordable price.”

GM-RPB1 retail pricing is $57.75. Additional information and pictures can be found at

Elcan Rifle Scopes

These are the voyages of the Elcan Riflescope. It’s continuing mission, to provide ultimate shooting accuracy with quality digital image recording.

Captain’s log, star date 2010. We find ourselves in the Delta Quadrant facing down the Klingtrons, the alien of Rigel Prime. They have captured our science officer, Mr. Sprock, and I will not leave him to die at their hands. They have moved out of range amid the dangerous sulfur volcano rocks of Ganymede IV and my loyal crew is working to find a way to rescue him in that dangerous landscape.

Spotty, our head engineer, brought some gear up to the bridge. “Cap’n, we can save Mr. Sprock by these adjustments.” He held out several sleek-looking tools. “These are the Elcan Digital Riflescopes. They’ve got electronic ballistics compensation and will be perfect if we have to pick a fight on that desolate planet.”

“You can’t shoot the Klingtrons,” our tactical officer, Sasha Lar, spoke up. “They’ll claim self defense to the Planetary Alliance and then we’ll be grounded.”

“That’s why you use the automatic video capture to record that they have Mr. Sprock hostage,” Spotty replied, clicking buttons on the computer. “This will work, Captain.  We can set the resolution on the video capture to high, to see the details in their faces. We can connect the video output port so that the Planetary Alliance can watch our rescue operation in real time. Or we can attach it to the USB drive and save the rescue video to show it to them later.”

“The shot’s too far,” Sasha said. “You’ve got to go in there with the shuttle, Captain. Transport Mr. Sprock out of there before it’s too late.” She ran her hands through her short hair.

“It’s not too far,” the chief engineer puffed. “Electronic ballistic compensation will enable us to hold where we want to hit. The electronic zoom helps in aiming without losing image quality. Magnification is accomplished electronically, centered about the designated center pixel and the aim point will not change at all during magnification changes like it does on a conventional scope, nor does resolution as we change from wide to narrow fields of view. We can set up the Digital Hunter for four different reticles, so we can pick reticles for any lighting or distance situation.  Or we could use this one, the Digital Hunter Day Night Riflescope.”

He handed the scope to me, and I caught it. Its engineering was smooth and it felt heavy and comfortable in my hands. “This is good for the dusky twilight of Ganymede IV?”

Spotty nodded. “It utilizes the near infrared, so more light is available to the scope, for brighter images in low light situations. After dark, active night vision will enable us to be effective whether you want us to go in for surveillance, or to kill those Klingtron varmints.” Spotty smiled.

“You’ve convinced me,” I said to Spotty. “Set up an away team. Set up the Elcan Digital Hunter Riflescopes on our weapons.” I pulled out my ray gun. “I’m going with you.”

Spotty smiled. “Do you want instant replay?” He started to adjust the settings on the scopes, which seemed very easy to do, even for him. “We can capture video or still photographs, and set a shot activated video or photograph capture set for a five second sequence before, after, or a combination of before and after the shot.”

I thought of my dependable friend, Mr. Sprock being held by those despicable Klingtrons, and I shrugged my shoulders. “Just set it so that they never kidnap one of my crewmembers again. I took the Elcan Digital Hunter and attached it easily to my ray guy. “These Klingtrons won’t know what hit them.”

Captain’s Log, star date 2010b. We took the Elcan Digital Hunter Riflescopes, attached to our ray guns down to the surface of Ganymede IV today to rescue our science officer, Mr. Sprock. The mission was a success. Mr. Sprock was so impressed with the riflescopes that he is now studying them for applications to integrate their superior technology into our ship’s navigation and tactical systems. The Elcan Riflescopes are an amazing piece of engineering.

Zeiss Rifle Scopes

Zeiss Victory Riflescope sat down and loaded up his Facespace page. He had just come back from a whitetail hunt and he had pictures to load on his page to share with his friends. The whitetail image was so clear, his Lotu Tec lens coating with fully T* multicoating on all air-to glass surfaces provided superior light transmission and optimum contrast in the twilight hunt. The pictures showed his large field of view. He was full of precision adjustments and he made them work, getting on target quickly and accurately. His buddies would be impressed with the photos.

He then checked his home page updates and saw that his brother, Zeiss Victory Varipoint Riflescope had written a note about his bighorn sheep hunt. He told how his illuminated red dot worked to give a superior shot. He was such a flexible guy, his red dot changed when his magnification changed so that his bighorn was never obscured. He also mentioned how his diet was going, Varipoint was so lightweight and ultra-compact.

Moving on to his friends list, he saw that they had many different objective sizes, reticle configurations and laser rangefinding capabilities. His newest friend, Zeiss Victory FL Diavari Riflescope was precisely recording the great distances of the shots he had made. He described how his FL glass eliminated color fringing. He had also become a fan of two ballistic compensation options, BDC ballistic turrets, and Rapid-Z. That guy was also a fan of both mobile and Western hunters.

On his side bar he noticed that Victory Diavari Riflescope had started up a game of Hunterville, earning high points for accuracy and clarity. His brilliant optical performance, elegant ergonomic design, LotuTec lens coating, and choice of reticles had given him a lot of points for the game. He would soon be able to bag an elephant in the game with the heavy recoil that he could withstand. It was just another excuse to show off his 50 mm or larger objective lens.

The Victory Diarange Rangefinding Riflescope popped up on his screen, showing off his children. He had pictures of Optics, showing off his power and high-performance. His child, Laser Rangefinder, was shown showing off his supreme accuracy, unparalleled speed and precision with his RAPID-Z ballistic reticle. His daughter, LED Display, was excelling in her classes, she had awards in aiming, ranging, and shooting in one smooth motion and her laser was eye safe, class 1.

Just as he was about to close his session, Zeiss Conquest Riflescope popped up a chat window and said, “Hey buddy.”

“Hey. How’s it going?”

“Pretty good. The wife’s got me working. She knows that I can stand up to the most abusive recoil and demanding terrains, and she’s got me working hard. I’m ready for a vacation. But you should see the house. My Zeiss MC coating gives us enhanced light transmission, anodized finishes, and now we’re waterproof, dust proof and nitrogen filled to prevent fogging.”

“You ought to hold up well in all kinds of weather.”

“Yep. See ya at the shoot tomorrow. I’m inviting everyone on my Facespace page.”

He laughed. “With Zeiss Riflescopes, we’ll have an exciting competition.”
