Sometimes the only thing that is missing from our current collection is a couple of good shooting accessories. Whether that means bipods, bags, lights, chronographs, vertical foregrips, or whatever else you feel like you need, sometimes buying a new gun isn’t always the answer. Lots of shooting accessories can actually give you an almost new experience with a gun that you have owned for years and some other accessories are just there to help when you’re out hunting or on the range. Today I’ve brought you guys a handful of shooting accessories which are all on sale plus a couple of extra items I think are appropriate for the Christmas season.
The 11th Day of TFB’s 12 Days of Christmas: Shooting Accessories
A fairly standard component if you want an upgrade over an M4 style stock. The Magpul CTR stock is a bit wider than a standard M4 stock giving you a better cheek weld. The stock has four points where a sling can be looped through and can even accommodate push-button QD sling mounts. Magpul stocks are rock solid and a great addition to any AR platform.
Designed for use on personal-defense handguns, this Holosun HS507-X2 reflex sight is outfitted with a large viewing window that’ll help you get on target and check out what’s going on downrange. The sight features a battery life of up to 50,000 hours on setting 6, so you won’t have to worry about changing it anytime soon. Even when you do have to change it, the battery tray slides out from the side of the sight, so you don’t have to take the optic off your gun.
- 50,000-hour battery life
- 12 brightness settings
- Click Value = 1 MOA
- Compatible with night vision

Each Aero Precision Breach Charging Handle can be had in two different sizes, so you can choose the one that best meets your needs. The smaller of the two levers has a sleek design that blends in with the overall lines of your rifle without creating any snag points yet still provides a comfortable, ergonomic surface for easy racking. The larger of the two levers give you more surface area for an instant, easy activation of the lever, whether through rapid one-handed racking or other motions.
Low-profile, weapon-mounted tactical light with integrated IR LED illuminator/laser and visible white LED illuminator. The user transitions from white light to IR without having to remove eyes from the target or alter their controlled firing grip. Securely fits M17/M18 pistols and all long guns with MIL-STD-1913 rails. IR requires night vision goggles obviously but I’m assuming if you’re buying one of these you know that already.

One of Hop’s favorite slings. The Magpul MS1 padded sling is a no-nonsense sling that would make a perfect addition to any rifle or shotgun. What Magpul has done is take a section of variable-width webbing of our proprietary weave and stitched a high-grade, ripstop coated, closed-cell foam pad to the inside of the sling.
