Welcome to our R1 Tactical blog.  We are proud to deliver information that is relevant to all users who own the AR rifle platform, or who are looking to purchase a quality AR for the first time.

At Redcon1 Tactical we hold very high standards in the quality of products and services we sell.  The quality of product MUST be products that WE WOULD USE for our own personal equipment.  We are a Business of real Veterans with real experience, Ranger Qualified, and U.S Army Special Forces Soldiers.  We don’t pretend to know things.  We either lived it, or contributed to it.  We support all Law Enforcement, Military, and Private Security Forces that are Pro-American.  Most of all we support the 2nd Amendment and everyone who lawfully exercises that right.

Since we are Veteran owned, our Business culture maintains the Military perspective with regards to Tasks, Conditions, and Standards.  Our Customers are our Task.  Each Customer inquiry has a specific condition, and all Customers must be treated to a Specific Standard of quality.  What is that Standard?  We use a simple, clear, and concise equation when approaching all customer requests, and that equation is called, Q=RF3  Quality = Reliability(Form, Fit, Function).
