First Strike Radius, Whiskey Two Four

Freedom, is the word I'd use to define my experience using Whiskey Two-Four's First Strike Radius Gauntlet. Not being encumbered by a heavy load out, and carrying virtually everything necessary to run your marker on your wrist is incredible.

After contacting Ryan and expressing interest in purchasing the First Strike Radius, he generously sent it along for evaluation.

Fit and finish on the product are outstanding as you'd expect from any Whiskey Two-Four Product. The Hypalon extraction area for First Strikes, keeps them securely inside and virtually rattle free, yet easy to remove even with gloved hands. Hypalon zipper pulls keep everything silent.

The gauntlet securely attaches to your arm and fingers with a paracord draw, and stays secure all day without becoming uncomfortable.
I do recommend wearing gloves as I don't especially enjoy the paracord between my fingers, but it's certainly not a requirement.

I found it to be a great compliment when running my CCM SR-1, and during a recent event I loaned the entire setup to a teammate who managed to bring home MVP using it.

In his words, "The First Strike Radius is a perfect complement to shooting a breach load marker. I found it extremely helpful and functional when needing to reload without having to fumble around in a pocket or pouch not designed for quickly grabbing a single First Strike. If you breach load rounds, the First Strike Radius is a must have in your load out."

Thanks again to Ryan and Whiskey Two Four, and be sure to check it out if you see us on the field.

Nice.

I liked the gauntlet the first time I saw it.

It does beat the shirt pocket and looks a whole lot more professional.

Thanks for the review.

Any in-play pics ?

What camo pattern is that? it's looks perfect for Fall play.
Also, I was wondering what is the handguard length on the SR1? I like that look.

12 inchesish would be my guess.

Very nice setup!

Given that the HHA peaks out at about 60yds, have you considered adding the MilSig adjustable riser underneath it?

I believe it does 9deg. However, I wasn't impressed by the adjustment knob for in-game adjustment (which is why I think it would work well with the HHA).

I might have to check that out. I think the rail I have on my sr-1 is angled 15 degrees with the HHA on top of that. So I may not need it.
