Blac-Rac is a Boise, Idaho-based company that has been making weapon mounts for the law enforcement and military communities for years. Recently, though, and as we mentioned at SHOT Show 2018, they have dipped their toe into the civilian market with a product that is going to knock your socks off! The Blac-Rac Model 1070.
The Blac-Rac 1070 weapon retention system will secure a weapon anywhere you need to place one. They have attachments for cars (ceiling or upright), helicopters, ATVs, UTVs, and, motorcycles, and, of course, bicycles. Yes, you can get attachments for in-the-home use as well. A single mount covers hunting rifles, ARs, and pretty much any other weapon you have in your arsenal. Including grenade launchers. Not joking. Watch video for details.
As I demonstrated in my very first video highlighting the Blac-Rac, entitled “Is It too Easy to Steal an AR from a Police Cruiser?“, what makes this system difficult to defeat is that in addition to being extremely tough, the takedown pins on the rifle are covered which prevents a would-be thief from disassembling the lower from the upper.
Another great feature for the hunter or sportsman, the mount features vibration dampening materials, to ensure you show up at your destination still zeroed.
I learned on my factory tour that Blac-Rac mounts are made in the United States! All materials are U.S.-sourced. No Chinese steel here. The assembly process is completed on sight by skilled craftsmen. Kudos to Blac-Rac for keeping jobs in America, where they belong!
As an advocate of the truck gun, I like this mounting system a lot. I am also a little more cautious about hardware now that I have kids.
If you are in the market for a home or vehicle mount, that is easily accessible, this one is hard to beat. If I can’t break it without tools, I doubt your average criminal can either.
Pricing for the 1070 model is $399. Contact Blac-Rac directly with any questions you may have. Tell them Clay sent ya.
