Holosun Technologies Introduces its Newest Micro Red Dot Unit

Monday, August 12th, 2019

City of Industry, CA (Aug 13, 2019)- Holosun Technologies is pleased to introduce the latest in its lineup of micro red dot optics, the HS407C. The HS407C is an entry level pistol sized optic that features two of Holosun’s proprietary battery saving technologies, as well as a unique red 12MOA ring in place of the standard 2MOA red dot. This unique small optic built into a durable aluminum body is ideal for use on a shotgun or whatever the situation demands.

As an entry level micro optic, the HS407C is built for rugged reliability and dependability. The HS407C’s aluminum housing makes it durable, corrosion resistant, and lightweight while Solar FailSafe and Shake Awake technologies keep it running, no matter what. Additionally, the HS407C has an IPX7 waterproof rating which means that the optic can safely operate in wet climates.

Holosun proudly boasts a battery life of up to 100,000 hours, or ten years, on the HS508C. Holosun knows battery life is crucial and features Shake Awake technology that helps users preserve battery life by detecting motion, and a lack of motion, in the optic. When it senses the optic is no longer in use through movement it will automatically power down the L.E.D. to conserve battery life. Once the optic detects movement again, it immediately restores power to the L.E.D. so that the user never has to guess or wonder if their optic is active. If the unexpected should occur and the battery does fail, Solar FailSafe uses a small solar panel mounted on top of the HS407C to collect ambient light to provide illumination for red dot. The brightness of the L.E.D. varies depending on the amount of light in the environment so users will never have a dim red dot in daylight or one that’s too bright indoors.

The HS407C is unique to the Holosun lineup as it features a 12MOA ring only. This reticle style is favored among shotgun users as it can be used to help shooters predict their spread pattern more easily ensuring nothing misses the target. Additionally, this reticle allows users to see through it so it does not obstruct view like a large red dot might. This optic features ten daylight brightness settings and two night vision compatible settings as well.

Durability and affordability are where the HS407C excel. Even as an entry level optic, the HS407C still delivers strength, clarity, and a long battery life. The HS407C is available today at authorized Holosun retailers and through their website http://www.holosun.com. The HS507C is the sibling unit of the HS407C that adds Multiple Reticle System technology to the optic. With an MSRP of $270.58 the HS407C is an affordable micro red dot optic.

Irvine, Calif. (July XX, 2019) – 5.11 Tactical®, the global innovator of tactical apparel and gear, is celebrating the grand opening of its 50th company owned retail store in Fort Bliss, Texas this week. The store marks the completion of an initiative established in 2014 to launch and expand company-owned retail stores across the country, aiming for 50 stores by the middle of this year.

“It used to be that you couldn’t buy 5.11 pants unless you were training with a government agency,” said 5.11’s Co-Founder and CEO Francisco J. Morales. “Our retail stores are an ideal destination for people from all walks of life to come and experience 5.11 clothing, footwear and gear. Our products are specially engineered for first responders and the military to be functional, comfortable and durable, and through our 5.11 retail stores, everyday consumers can benefit similarly from the innovation we inject into our products.”

The beginning of the brand’s robust retail expansion came in 2017 and 2018, with an average of two store openings per month. The brand continued its momentum into 2019 with six store openings since January. An estimated 1-2 store openings per month are planned for the remainder of the year and into 2020.

“Opening our 50th store this week celebrates an ambitious and sustainable streak of retail expansion,” said 5.11’s Senior Vice President of Retail, Jeff Roberts. “5.11 stores offer professionals and consumers something beyond high-quality products to wear. The stores serve as a beacon for the first responder community and for the military, both active duty and veterans. Our Always Be Ready Academy offers the community free in-store classes in trauma care, self-defense, everyday carry, fitness and outdoor adventure. Our knowledgeable in-store staff, experts in their field, help bring 5.11’s innovative, purpose-built gear to life.” Roberts concludes, “We’ve found that even as shopping becomes more digitized than ever, people value and seek out the level of personal interaction our 5.11 stores offer.”

With its roots in servicing the law enforcement, first responder and military communities, 5.11 Tactical prides itself on seeking out and hiring former servicemen and women and veterans whenever possible. Each retail location carries head-to-toe apparel and gear for men and women including pants, shorts, shirts, outerwear, footwear, packs and bags, headwear, load-bearing equipment and tactical accessories. To date, 5.11 owns retail stores in 24 states, with larger metropolitan areas serving as a hub for several stores. 5.11 Fort Bliss joins the ranks as 5.11’s eighth store in Texas.

STREAMLIGHT INTRODUCES TLR-VIR II TACTICAL ILLUMINATOR

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

Low-Profile Light Features Three Functions, Adjustable Eye-Safe IR Aiming Laser

EAGLEVILLE, PA, January 22, 2019 – Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the TLR-VIR® II, a lightweight, compact rail-mounted tactical light with a high intensity white LED, an integrated infrared (IR) LED illuminator, and Class 1 “Eye Safe” IR aiming laser with windage and elevation adjustment controls. The new light securely fits all long guns with MIL-STD-1913 rails and M17/M18 pistols.

The TLR-VIR II enables users to easily toggle easily between bright light and the IR illuminator/laser. This feature allows military and law enforcement personnel to remain in a proper firing position when making the transition from IR mode to white light, and vice versa. The light features a three-position mode rear selector switch, including IR illumination/IR laser, Safe Off (to prevent accidental turn-on), and visible illumination, that enables users to keep hands away from the muzzle during mode selection.

“The TLR-VIR II gives soldiers and first responders the ultimate in tactical lighting flexibility,” said Streamlight President Ray Sharrah. “With its high intensity white light and a long-running IR illuminator and Eye Safe IR laser for optimizing night vision, it’s an essential tool for those deploying with weapon lights.”

The new light, which is powered by a single CR123A lithium battery, uses the latest in LED technology for ultra-bright visible light, providing 5,000 candela, 300 lumens and a 1.5 hour run time. For IR lighting, the TLR-VIR II uses an 850-nanometer LED emitter with 600mW/sr radiant intensity, providing optimum illumination when using night vision equipment; it delivers a run time of 12 hours. Its IR aiming laser has fully adjustable windage and elevation settings.

The TLR-VIR II has an ambidextrous momentary/steady on-off switch. Like other TLR® models, the light has a rail clamp that can be easily attached and tightened with one hand, without the use of tools. The IR illumination/laser mode selection also features a tactile indicator on the light housing for switching modes with ease.

The TLR-VIR II is constructed from machined aircraft aluminum, with a coyote anodized finish body and a high-impact, chemically resistant polymer black switch housing.
The compact light weighs only 3.82 ounces and measures 3.30 inches long and 1.40 inches high. It uses a high temperature, shock-mounted, impact-resistant Borofloat glass lens. It is available in Coyote or Black.

Featuring extensively live-fire tested construction, the TLR-VIR II has an IPX7 rated design for waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes. It has an MSRP of $600.00.

Air Venturi Now Shipping Officially Licensed Springfield Armory M1 Carbine Airgun Replicas

Monday, July 29th, 2019

CLEVELAND, OHIO (July 29, 2019) Airgun industry innovator Air Venturi is now shipping the latest product of its collaboration with renowned firearms producer Springfield Armory®: a .177-cal., CO2-powered BB-gun version of the iconic WWII-era M1 Carbine Rifle.

The Springfield Armory® M1 Carbine air rifle, available exclusively through Air Venturi and its authorized retailers, is a faithful BB-firing replica of the iconic firearm that saw service with U.S. troops and allies in World War II through the Vietnam War and beyond. It’s a semi-automatic carbine that features a realistic blowback action. Every time the trigger is pulled, the rifle discharges the BB in the chamber, the bolt slides back and the next round is seated in the breech, ready to go – just like the original.

The M1 Carbine CO2 BB replica is powered by a single 12-gram CO2 cartridge and gets about 40 good shots from a full one. It features a full-metal, 15-round drop-free magazine, which also houses the CO2 power plant. It even weighs about as much as the .30-caliber version – just over 5 ½ pounds – and achieves muzzle velocities of up to 425 feet per second using steel BBs. It incorporates a metal upper receiver into a synthetic, wood-look stock, with a genuine wood-stock upgrade available.

Fans of historically significant firearms that want to bring that flavor into their airgun arsenal, or even own the original firearm and want an affordable replica for at-home target practice, this is the airgun they’ve been waiting for.

Shell Shock Technologies Signs Don Aman as Newest Sponsored Shooter

Sunday, July 14th, 2019

Shell Shock Technologies will be supplying Aman with its NAS3 cases for his 2019 competitive season.

Westport, Conn. (June 2019) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early stage technology, and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, is pleased to announce it has signed Don Aman as its newest sponsored shooter. Shell Shock Technologies will be supplying Aman with its NAS3 cases during his 2019 USPSA competitive season. He will be shooting his CZ CZECHMATE running 9mm at 170 power factor.

“Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 9mm cases are by far the best all-around 9mm cases I have ever seen or shot. This technology will revolutionize the reloading industry and I am so proud to be a part of the Shell Shock Technologies’ team. The old brass case technology has officially been put on notice!” Aman commented.

Aman has been involved in the shooting sports for over 20 years as a competitive shooter, reloader, Las Vegas survivor and a staunch pro-gun advocate. He started casting his own bullets in 2016 and quickly realized it was becoming a lost art. He began to read anything he could get his hands on regarding the art of casting lead and now shares this information with his subscribers on the Bullets for Freedom YouTube and UGETube Channel. During 2019, he will be traveling throughout the Northwest competing in many Level 1, 2 and 3 matches as part of the USPSA competitive season.

Aman can be seen competing next at the 2019 Northwest Challenge, to be held at the Paul Bunyan Rifle and Sportsman’s Club in Puyallup, Washington, July 12 – 14, 2019.

About Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 Cases:

NAS3 9mm cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms. The cases offer greater corrosion resistance, tensile strength (2x stronger) and elasticity than brass. NAS3 cases will not split, chip, crack or grow (stretch) and are fully reloadable (using S3 Reload dies) and can be reloaded many more times than brass cases. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully by customers to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3 cases can be picked up with a magnet. The head can be colored for branding purposes and easy load identification.

NAS3 is “Best in Class” for maintaining consistent velocity between rounds. In an independent test performed by H.P. White Laboratory (a major munitions testing facility), rounds fired using NAS3 cases achieved a velocity standard deviation of 0.093 FPS (124-grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).

D Day Commemorative Combat Shotgun

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

MKS Supply, LLC, Dayton OH, July 2019 – The exclusive marketer for Inland Manufacturing is proud to offer a special limited edition Ithaca Model 37 combat shotgun to commemorate and honor the 75 Anniversary of the D Day landings.

Only 100 of this this limited edition Ithaca Model 37 will be made. Each shotgun comes with a certificate of authenticity denoting the 75th anniversary of the D Day landings with the shotgun’s serial number imprinted on the certificate. A tasteful D Day commemorative cartouche is imprinted on the right side of the stock. Additionally, the company has authorized a special suggested retail price for these select 100 guns of only $1,049.

Manufactured by Ithaca in a joint and exclusive effort with Inland Manufacturing, this Ithaca Model 37 “trench gun” is faithful to the lethal original from its bead sight, Parkerized finish, oiled wood stock, ventilated hand guard to its robust lug for the long 1917 bayonet (not included).

The receiver is CNC-machined from a solid block of steel and features the same military markings as the original. Also like the original, it loads and ejects through the bottom of the receiver.

For those who want an authentically reproduced very limited edition combat shotgun with D Day commemorative cartouche and certificate of authenticity, this special priced Ithaca Model 37 is a great choice.

Specifications:

  • Caliber: 12 gauge (23/4 and 3-inch)
  • Weight: 6.7 pounds
  • Barrel: 20 inches
  • Finish: Parkerized
  • Overall length: 38.5 inches
  • Stock: American Walnut (oil finished) with special D Day Anniversary cartouche.
  • Capacity: 4+1 rounds (4 in magazine, one in chamber)
  • Sight: Brass bead front
  • 100 percent all American made
  • MSRP: $1,049 special D Day commemorative price
  • Editorial background:

    Produced in limited numbers during WWII, the Model 37 production stopped in 1945. The Vietnam War really reignited the need for large numbers of combat shotguns and Ithaca started building Model 37s again beginning in 1962. Initially made for the Vietnamese military, the Model 37 proved so effective in jungle fighting it was contracted for our military and models like the current Inland/Ithaca version were produced throughout the war.

    The Model 37 was generally found with some elite units such as Navy SEALs and Army Green Berets. The Model 37 was especially handy for Marine Corps Corpsmen (actually Navy medics called Corpsmen by the Marines) and others in various support roles on the battlefield where quick, fight-stopping high-hit probability shots and total reliability were critical while the operator performed his primary mission task.

    Out of production since 1975, the Ithica Model 37 is now back and every bit as mean-looking and effective as it was in WWII , Korea and the jungles of Vietnam. The Model 37 has proved to be a serious fight stopper in combat since WWII and a fun gun to use recreationally, hunting or for self-defense for over 75 years–especially for those wanting an authentic looking piece of combat firearm history.

    Introducing Galco’s New StukOn-U Pocket Holster

    Monday, June 24th, 2019

    Galco Gunleather’s new StukOn-U™ pocket holster builds on Galco’s decades of experience with pocket holsters. Its Gripper Shell™ exterior helps the holster grab the inside of the pocket, while the closed-cell foam substrate gives the holster shape and sturdiness. Finally, a layer of 420 denier packcloth lines the holster to both protect the handgun and smooth the draw.

    The StukOn-U is designed for front pocket carry in pants or a jacket. It keeps the firearm in the same general position so the grip can be quickly located during draw, conceals the shape of the gun so that its outline is not printed through the pants, and allows one-handed release of gun from both pocket and holster, especially when using a “hooking” draw technique to catch the trigger-guard edge of the holster on the pocket as the handgun is released. The holster’s Gripper Shell surface assists in keeping the holster in the pocket during the draw.

    Pocket carry offers some unique advantages. Not only is the handgun completely covered and concealed, but the gun carrier can casually place a hand on the holstered/pocketed pistol if a nonspecific threat materializes – and the fastest draw is to have the gun already in hand.

    The StukOn-U helps accomplish multiple concealed carry tasks with excellent discretion – and at the very reasonable retail price of $27!

    Enoch Industries Introduces the ODIN Chassis System, a Lightweight Chassis for the 10/22 Platform

    Thursday, June 20th, 2019

    Spring Creek, TN, June 17, 2019 – Enoch Industries, designer and developer of top-tier firearm components, has recently unveiled their first product, the ODIN Chassis System, a lightweight and versatile system for the 10/22 platform. Weighing in at only 12.2 oz, this chassis system incorporates current AR-15 attachment standards, giving users a new level of function that standard 10/22 platforms fail to deliver.

    The only 10/22 chassis available on the market with a Picatinny rail at the back, the ODIN Chassis System provides a better option for attaching a new standard of stocks and pistol braces. This flexibility features a smaller footprint and offers considerable weight savings over the standard receiver extension and buttstock combos. Machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum, The ODIN Chassis System provides a rigid, no-compromise platform for building or upgrading a precision rifle or pack-lite pistol.

    “This new chassis fills the gap in the market for a lightweight, modular system for the 10/22 platform,” said Joseph Sudderth, CEO of Enoch Industries. “While on the hunt for a lightweight chassis to upgrade a 10/22, we couldn’t find anything on the market that fit the bill. So we set out to design one that provided the flexibility and versatility that we needed, and the ODIN Chassis System was born.”

    The ODIN Chassis System is designed to give competition shooters and 10/22 enthusiasts the freedom to customize their build for any number of unique setups. In the front of the chassis, MLok slots at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock allow for the addition of a variety of accessories while two steel, 360° quick disconnects on both sides of the chassis are ideal for running sling attachments. The ODIN Chassis System includes a grip adapter that closes the gap from the grip to trigger housing, keeping the transition to a minimum and providing a more enjoyable shooting experience. The chassis accepts all non-beavertail AR-15 grips, although some beavertail grips are compatible with minor modifications to the grip. The ODIN Chassis System also fits all standard, non-takedown receivers excluding the Supergrade. Other notable ODIN Chassis System specs include:

    • Material: 6061-T6 Billet Aluminum

    • Weight: 12.22 oz (including all hardware)

    • Dimensions: 12.75” (L), 1.5” (W), 1.5” (H)

    • Stocks: 3 Picatinny slots at the rear of chassis

    • Attachments: MLok slots at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock

    • QD Inserts: 2 nitrided 360° steel inserts

    • Barrel channel inner dimension: 1.015″

    • Barrel lengths: Using a 6″ barrel brings the threaded muzzle to .575″ past the handguard, exposing threads for silencers.

    The new ODIN Chassis System is available online to customers in the US (excluding Puerto Rico) for an MSRP of $225 and includes the ODIN Chassis in anodized black along with all required hardware.

    Comp-Tac® has enhanced their products by imprinting a basket weave finish on their high-quality, air-craft grade Kydex® . Because the pattern is imprinted into the Kydex® it will not rub off or wear over time. It gives a long lasting visual as well as tactile feel of basket weave on the customer’s favorite holster, mag pouch, handcuff or tourniquet TACO® product. In addition to the basket weave finish, the stenciling of the item’s make and model has been moved to the back to maintain the clean look the basket weave offers.

Now that Comp-Tac® can create a basket weave pattern on Kydex® products, we hope to expand those officers’ choices and allow them to carry the gear they need and want while still meeting their departments’ requirements.”

The FACT Duty provides an unobstructed view from the end of the firearm, showing what really happened during firearm-involved use-of-force incidents. With INSTANT-ON® activation upon draw, it offers an easy-to-implement strategy for capturing high-risk and significant liability exposure situations.

    Virtual attendees will hear from Viridian National Sales Manager, Kevin Skalicky, and Viridian General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer, Matthew Plowman.

    Shell Shock Technologies Sponsored Shooter John Vlieger Wins Open Division, Second Overall at the 2019 LimCat Custom and Precision Delta Mississippi Classic

    Monday, May 27th, 2019

    Westport, Conn. (May 2019) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, is pleased to announce its sponsored shooter, John Vlieger, took home the High Open Division and Second Overall titles at the 2019 LimCat Custom and Precision Delta Mississippi Classic, held May 18, 2019 in Byram, Mississippi.

    Vlieger competed against 259 competitors to finish with 1177.2938 match points and a time of 196.05. Watch the competition video here: https://www.facebook.com/JohnVliegerShooting/videos/339921083374248/.

    “The 2019 Mississippi Classic was a movement intensive technical match with everything from 40-yard shots to a mop on 11 courses of fire. From sunshine to a thunderstorm, 25 – 100 percent humidity changes, and 55-90-degree temperature shifts, my equipment ran true throughout. My ammo loaded in Shell Shock Technologies’ cases ran flawlessly in the pouring rain the same as in the dry heat, and I couldn’t ask for better reliability. When you’re shooting 5,000 rounds a month to stay competitive, there is no room for questionable ammunition, and Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases keep me focused on the targets, not on my gear. Here’s to preparing for the next challenge!” commented Vlieger.

    Vlieger has fired over 55,000 rounds of ammunition with Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases since becoming sponsored in 2017 and plans to continue using it.

    Vlieger can be seen competing next at the 2019 Ohio State USPSA Cheely Custom Gunworks BUCKEYE BLAST, to be held May 31 – June 2, 2019, in Zanesville, Ohio.
