Most people were pretty excited to see names like colt, bushmaster, DPMS, and sig stamped on a black rifle in the gun case at walmart. This isn't quite as exciting, but it's still pretty cool.
My walmart is one of a few test bed stores to sell these black rifle specific accessories and depending on how this goes over, you may get them too.
The first sign to look for is a sticker on or near the gun case with a scoped AR and explanations of various accessories.
It seems that within a week of that sticker going up, the accessories get hung up for sale.
None of it carries the big name brands most of you like, but some of it seems like it would work fine on a range fun gun.
So why be so excited (if you can call it that) over stuff likely made in china..... Well, to me it's pretty cool because the black rifle is becoming more mainstream and accepted.
Won't be long before you get a P-Mag in happymeals (lol).

Some pictures to spark discussion....

Sorry about the crappy pictures and flash washout... I was trying to get out of the clerk's way so I was in a hurry.








That $24.97 item is some kind of palm held punch dagger..... just strange to see that here.












The store clerk said there was quite a bit more to come out for all types of guns, but mostly more AR stuff.

I can see it now, the People of Walmart will be the first wave to hit the beach.
Hopefully their Chicom accessories will work.

I've noticed the same at my local Wally Worlds in North Georgia. One of our local Gun Stores (Georgia Gun Store in Gainesville, GA) sells about the same accessories for similar prices along with higher quality items and cheaper items. One problem with some of these items is that the seem disproportionally heavy when compared to some other brands that aren't that much more expensive. I think I spent $74 for a Harris Bipod that seemed to weigh a lot less in my hand than the Blackhawk in the picture. On a benchrest you wouldn't feel too much of a difference, but if you have the bipod at the end of a rail and try to shoot standing, you notice the weight difference. Now they had a really good price on a Nikon AR-Platform Scope mount, but a lot of the accessories seem to be in be of middling quality. The accessories appear to be higher quality than UTG, but of less quality than Harris, Aimpoint or Magpul. I think it is neat that they are carrying this stuff, but I wasn't blown away by their specific accessory selections.

Kinda funny reading this thread and watching the news at the same time, and they're talking about 'Assault' rifle bans again in light of the recent tragedy in Colorado.....

And yet all of the Blackhawk items there have "Made in the USA" printed on them.

Way to assume.

I like seeing the accessories at Wal-mart. I believe it's good they are getting into our sport/hobby. Any kind of exposure can't be bad.

The 80 dollar weapons light may or may not be Chinese.

Next time I go to WalMart, I will check to see if they have one. If it's made in China, I will buy one to hang on my Chinese M14S.

I know that will make you very happy.

If it's a Colt, it's a copy of an original ArmaLite.

I saw these in the Concord, NH Walmart. I was curious about the laser/light combo. The reviews of light on Amazon have put this into the do no buy category (but the reviews for just the light are pretty good).

They are reconfiguring the sports department at my Wal-Mart to accommodate black rifle gear.

the one is Jackson, KY has all those same accessories. Most people around here aren;t in to accessorizing their ARs for some reason so i don;t know how they will do. I bought a couple of the low profile ladder covers wish they had that Gunslick cleaning kit I would get one of those but for some reason they don;t have them

My local Walmart just has the Blackhawk grips so far. Didn't see anything else. I would pick up some ladder rail covers if they had them.

Any idea of the quality of the Blackhawk bipods versus Harris?

I have never tried anything else from blackhawk except for a 1911 holster. I can say they make one heck of a nice CQC holster.
