gear head works
A gear or cogwheel is a rotating machine part having cut teeth, or cogs, which mesh with another toothed part to transmit torque. Geared devices can change the speed, torque, and direction of a power source. Gears almost always produce a change in torque, creating a mechanical advantage, through their gear ratio, and thus may be considered a simple machine. The teeth on the two meshing gears all have the same shape. Two or more meshing gears, working in a sequence, are called a gear train or a transmission. A gear can mesh with a linear toothed part, called a rack, thereby producing translation instead of rotation.
The gears in a transmission are analogous to the wheels in a crossed, belt pulley system. An advantage of gears is that the teeth of a gear prevent slippage.
When two gears mesh, if one gear is bigger than the other, a mechanical advantage is produced, with the rotational speeds, and the torques, of the two gears differing in proportion to their diameters.
In transmissions with multiple gear ratios—such as bicycles, motorcycles, and cars—the term "gear" as in "first gear" refers to a gear ratio rather than an actual physical gear. The term describes similar devices, even when the gear ratio is continuous rather than discrete, or when the device does not actually contain gears, as in a continuously variable transmission.
I have a gen II FDE kriss Vector 9mm in great conditions, it will come with 3x 30+ Round magazines with ghost inc MOAB base plates 1x 17 round glock oem magazine. Installed on it is a gearhead works tailhook folding brace. Threaded barrel for your suppressor needs. Also installed are Magpul flip...
Want the look of the original MP5k-PDW but without the stamp? Now you can have not only the look, but the same quality and operation in a pistol brace as the real stock.The original OEM supplier of these to HK designed an arm to accept the Tailhook Mod 1 brace. It is made from the same materials...
Pistol brace, only fits on pistol buffer tubes with a diameter of 1.17" to 1.2"
Barely used (like new condition) and haven't had it for more than a couple months.
No trades, need cash for AK parts.
