Default PHASE 5 TACTICAL - NEW LIGHTER EBRv2

OK, Folks,

for those of yall that like to shoot fast, reload fast, and clear stoppages even faster...here's the gizmo of the week.

Phase 5 Tactical has come out with their new, and improved, EBRV2 DEVICE.

If you have followed my earlier link (I cannot find it at the moment), you will know that I purchased their device a while back.

When I first received it, the first thing I noticed was the WEIGHT. It was solid and heavy. So naturally, the first thing that came to mind was it's reliability. I "assumed" that the extra weight would not work well, and so I was on the prowl for a heavy-duty spring to use with it.

Nope...no heavy duty springs to be found.

So my next step was to drill a couple of holes in the device to try and remove some metal/weight.

Nope...that didn't work either. (You can see my results/pictures in my other thread, if you should ever find it).

So I contacted Phase 5 Tactical, and I see that they have now come out with a new EBRv2 Device that they claim is 30% lighter.

Shoot...the answer to my quest.

To make a long story short, the new device is now in my hand, and it is lighter. As soon as I removed it from the package, I noticed the difference.

Another thing I noticed was that the welds were a lot cleaner. (Cool).

Anyhoo...below are attached a few pictures for you to see.

The first picture will be my original, DRILLED, EBRv2 Device. Then the new one will follow.

Just wanted to throw a plug in for Phase 5 Tactical for listening to their customers, and staying on the cutting edge.

I know that MagPul had the B.A.D. Device, but a 1-piece device is much more stable...and attractive.

Enjoy the pix, and notice the clean welds.

In Christ: Raymond

0.1 lighter than the BAD and Tango.

Looks cool too. Are those actual welds or some kind of liquid weld?

Another thing it doesn't have (if he's listening)...is the slight bend where the finger makes contact...The BAD is the only one that has this..(I think their angle is too much).

Ken, ever so slightly!!!!!

If you are asking if it is a "cold weld" (like JB Weld)..."No", it is not.

It is an actual weld, as far as I can tell.

Here are a few more pictures below.

I am not a photographer, so don't blame me for the shoddy/blurry pictures. I just wanted to post a few pix to share this new product with yall.

Can't wait till my upper arrives!!

In Christ: Raymond

Knowing Ken, most likely tig or heli arc.
Maybe v3 will have the slight bend it needs.
Looks nice.
