Virginia Beach, Va. (October 2017) – SENTRY Products Group, an industry leader in the Military, Law Enforcement and Outdoor equipment, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Hexmag™, innovators of AR-15/AR-10 magazines and accessories.

When Hexmag was founded, it introduced lightweight magazines for the AR-15/AR-10 platforms.

“We set out to make the most durable, versatile and aesthetic magazine on the market,” stated Aaron Schefter, founder of Hexmag. He continued, “With great acceptance and a strong end user following, the company rapidly expanded and SENTRY was the logical partner to continue the product development. When the SENTRY crew were executives at BLACKHAWK!®, they really loved and understood product development and manufacturing and that is what I want for the future of Hexmag’s products.”

Built in the USA and backed with a lifetime warranty, Hexmag’s products are manufactured using a proprietary fiber-reinforced polymer, PolyHex2, resulting in a lighter and more durable magazine. The patented hexagonal surface provides superior grip and ease of handling. Hexmag’s HexID Color Identification System allows end users to quickly personalize magazines to identify different ammunition calibers. Product line extensions include grips, rail covers and grip tape allowing end users to further customize their gear.

“We are proud to add Hexmag products to our company offerings; their innovative approach to product design and marketing fits well and extends our presence in the Military, Law Enforcement, Tactical and OEM markets,” said Terry Naughton, President of SENTRY Products Group. He continued, “This addition creates new US based jobs as manufacturing and distribution moves to SENTRY’s Boise, Idaho facility and core business functions move to the Virginia Beach, Virginia U.S.A. headquarters.”

“The acquisition of Hexmag fits perfectly with SENTRY’s short, medium and long-term vision of both organic growth, as well as growth through acquisition,” said Mike Noell, CEO of SENTRY. “Hexmag was an easy plugin to our accessories business and gives SENTRY additional product categories, sales channels, new distribution partners and an entrance into the high-tech injection molded product arena. We are now focused on operational excellence, great products and awesome service. Thank you for your trust and business, we look forward to serving you!”

Rosco Manufacturing’s New 9mm Barrels Focus On Defensive And Competitive Shooting Needs

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

October 18th, 2017: Rosco Manufacturing, a proud American manufacturer of high quality gun barrels, is proud to announce the launch of their new 9mm Bloodline AR platform barrels. The barrels are a product line extension to the hard use Bloodline series that Rosco just recently introduced.

The new 9mm barrels were designed with the current end users’ needs in mind. The 9mm AR has recently been forced to evolve to meet present needs of size constraints, heavier self-defense ammunition, and suppressor use. The new-found resurgence in the 9mm AR platform has become so popular that the USPSA has even opened a Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) division. That is why Rosco carefully planned out the specs of these barrels to meet these needs head on.

Rosco, while listening to the voice of their consumer recently unveiled the 9mm barrels in 5.5”, 7.5”, and 14.5” lengths. Size was an important topic to cover for folks that want to build a smaller platform for self-defense or to be used primarily with a suppressor (and keep the overall size to a minimum). The PCC friendly barrels feature a perfect length to weight ratio for the competitive shooter to have the extra edge. The barrels also feature a 1/10 twist to help support heavier defense and subsonic loads (while still working perfectly with standard ammo).

“We are fortunate to have great customers that tell us what they would like to see. It is our job not only to listen, but to create an everlasting product for them to enjoy”– Gabriel Cabrera, Marketing & Sales Director for Rosco Manufacturing.

All Rosco 9mm barrels feature a 4150 CMV steel blank which is then rifled using our proprietary “Rifling and Polishing method” which produces a lapped smooth surface before final Salt Bath Nitride treatment is applied. All barrels are also Air Gauged (Chamber, Bore & Groove) and checked for other multiple points of failure in our in-house QC department before they are shipped out to the consumer. Barrels come in 5.5”, 7.5”, and 14.5” lengths while featuring a 1/10 RH twist. MSRP starts at $105 and is immediately available for purchase at www.RoscoManufacturing.com.

HatsanUSA Announces The Sortie Pistol A New Semi-Auto Airgun

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

HatsanUSA is quickly ushering in the era of the semi-automatic airgun with the announcement of the new Sortie semi-auto air pistol. Following the successful launch of two new semi-automatic air rifles – the Hatsan Barrage and BullMaster – earlier this year, the Sortie brings the same revolutionary gas-operated semi-auto action to a smaller, lightweight pistol platform.

The Sortie is a pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air pistol and is available in .177, .22 and .25 calibers. It sports a refillable 62cc on-board air cylinder that provides shooters with up to 28 shots at optimal velocity per fill.

It comes with 3 rotary magazines with capacities of 14 shots in .177, 12 shots in .22 caliber or 10 shots in .25 caliber.

The Sortie features a fully shrouded, precision rifled barrel, includes a quick-fill nozzle and comes with adjustable TRUGLO® fiber optic sights. A combo Weaver / Dovetail rail is milled into the receiver to accept both 11mm and 22mm optics.

With its realistic blowback action, this is one plinker that you’ll want to take with you wherever you go. It’s also a great option for teaching pistol fundamentals to first-time shooters.

“Hatsan fans have been asking for us to bring a realistic blowback CO2 BB pistol to the US market and with the Riptor, we feel like we’ve answered the call with an inexpensive and fun-to-shoot BB pistol. The fact that it is also quite accurate and extremely quiet will add to the appeal,” said Blaine Manifold, President of HatsanUSA.

SilencerCo Releases First-Ever 50-State-Legal Suppressed Muzzleloader

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

IMG_1004

WEST VALLEY CITY, UT – September 19, 2017 – For the first time since the National Firearms Act (NFA) was created in 1934, civilians can enjoy suppressed shooting in all 50 states with SilencerCo’s latest innovation: the integrally suppressed Maxim 50 muzzleloader. In addition, this product can be purchased right now on the web with no regulation (no 4473, no tax stamp, no photographs or fingerprints) at store.silencerco.com and be shipped immediately to the purchaser with few exceptions*.

IMG_1006

Residents in the 42 states that allow civilian ownership of silencers have to pay a $200 tax, fill out forms, send in photos, submit to fingerprinting, and wait months for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to review their forms and check their backgrounds—just to acquire an inherently-harmless product. With all the hoops to jump through, it’s no surprise that many Americans have difficulty committing the time or money it takes to save their hearing. Citizens may have had their Second Amendment rights suppressed, but innovation cannot be silenced.

IMG_1005

With the invention of the Maxim 50, SilencerCo has created a product that is 100% legal for civilian ownership in all 50 states while providing hearing-saving suppression at a reasonable price point. How is this possible? By paying very close attention to the law.

IMG_1007

The BATFE defines a silencer as a “device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a portable firearm . . .” By that definition, a silencer is only a silencer if it can attach to a firearm. The Maxim 50 is built on the base of a Traditions™ Vortek Strikerfire Muzzleloader. For those who know muzzleloaders, you’ll also know that they are not considered firearms by the BATFE but are instead antique firearms, a definition and difference that is very distinct. Because of this, a moderator that is permanently affixed to a muzzleloader is not legally defined as a silencer, since it does not attach to a firearm. With this realization, the Maxim 50 was born.

IMG_1003

“It took a lot of creativity to arrive at this solution,” said Josh Waldron, SilencerCo CEO and Co-Founder. “We have been working on this product for three years, with most of that time spent waiting on a determination from the Technology Branch of the BATFE as to how this product would be classified. As soon as we received official word that it wouldn’t be considered or regulated as a silencer, we got to work on bringing the Maxim 50 to customers across the country.”

SilencerCo expects the Maxim 50 to be a hit not only with the NFA-loving crowd, but also with hobbyists and hunters. In many states, muzzleloader hunting begins days (sometimes weeks) before standard rifle season, giving hunters using this platform an edge. But this edge does come with caveats – antique firearms are usually loud, have lots of recoil, and the shooter has to battle the thick cloud of black powder smoke billowing from the barrel as they try to see if their shot connected with their game. The Maxim 50 solves all of the issues experienced by muzzleloader shooters while also drastically reducing the resulting smoke by more than two-thirds, allowing hunters to see the location of their shot and track their game.

SilencerCo is honored to finally be able to bring suppressed shooting to its customers across the country, especially in states such as California, Illinois, and New York, where civilian ownership of silencers is not currently allowed.

WORLD LEADER IN MILITARY AND DEFENSE ENDORSES DUKE ROBOTICS’ TIKAD DRONE AS FUTURE BATTLEFIELD TECHNOLOGY

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Company’s technology presented as state-of-the-art
Military advancement by Israel’s Ministry of Defense

Gulf Breeze, FL, September 14, 2017 — Duke Robotics, Inc, a developer of advanced robotic systems, announced that Israel’s Ministry of Defense has endorsed Duke Robotics’ TIKAD drone as innovative future battlefield technology.

The Administration for the Development of Weapons (ADW) at Israel’s Ministry of Defense, which has similar tasks to those of DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) at the U.S. Department of Defense, recently unveiled a number of state-of-the-art military developments, which they called “Weapons of the Future,” set to be implemented into Israel Defense Forces service on land, sea, and air, including Duke Robotics’ TIKAD, featured prominently in this Israeli Defense Ministry video: (https://youtu.be/cqMbsQbJL3o)

“We are pleased with the endorsement of the Israeli ADW (Administration for the Development of Weapons at the Ministry of Defense) for our technology and its capability in providing a real solution in saving lives and changing the course of the modern battlefield,” said Raziel Atuar, Duke Robotics CEO, former Israeli Special Mission Unit commander.

With the mission to save lives and to empower troops with immediate aerial support, Duke Robotics designed the TIKAD — a fully robotic weaponry system on an airborne platform, which they refer to as The Future Soldier. The company announced in August that it’s offering up to $15 Million of common stock qualified by the SEC under Tier II of Regulation A+. Now, anyone, not just wealthy investors, can purchase stock and own a part of this award-winning company. See DukeFutureSoldier.com.

As the classic army versus army confrontation on the battlefield has become increasingly rare, guerrilla warfare is now more commonplace. Developed by former Israeli military and Special Mission Unit officers to address warfare’s changing landscape, the TIKAD is remotely operated by troops, user-friendly and easily carried into the field. The company’s proprietary robotic stabilization technology enables the TIKAD to absorb the recoil of a weapon, allowing for pinpoint targeting and shooting accuracy that can protect troops in a variety of dangerous situations. By reducing the need for ground troops, the TIKAD represents a major step towards minimizing military and civilian casualties and the technology is gaining support on a global basis.

PPSS Group’s New Emergency Body Armour Will Help Protect Civilians

Friday, September 8th, 2017

Designed for individual protection, a new rapidly deployable ‘Emergency Body Armour™’ is offering the latest in globally respected and field-tested body armour technology, displaying truly outstanding protection from edged weapon, such as machetes and knives.

Following a number of well documented knife attacks on civilians in recent years, PPSS Group started a comprehensive R&D project with the aim to design a ultra-lightweight body armour that can be strategically located in public places and deployed within a very few seconds, in case of emergency.

The UK firm is now making this new ‘Emergency Body Armour’ available to airports, train stations, hospitals, city centre hotels, and other key locations civilians may flee to and seek shelter when faced by a suddenly occurring threat.

According to the company behind this concept, this latest ‘Emergency Body Armour’ also offers unmatched protection from blunt force trauma injuries, usually suffered following an assault by a blunt object.

A top healthcare security specialist in Britain wished to remain anonymous, but commented: “To have something small, compact and lightweight stashed away or strategically placed that you could pull out and throw on, would make a huge difference between a potential life and death situation.”

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group strongly agrees with this statement. Presenting at yesterday’s global product launch at London’s Hilton Canary Wharf Hotel he said: “An Emergency Body Armour makes sense, and it will help to protect human lives and reduce the number of casualties when a serious threat occurs.”

A live video demo of this new armour can be viewed on YouTube by searching for ‘PPSS Emergency Body Armour’ or please click on the following link: https://youtu.be/D54P9cjDIt8
Following the issuing of body armour to all Police Forces in the UK in the 90s, many hospital and university security teams have now equipped their teams with stab resistant vests since. The same can be said for several public sector enforcement teams, such as Trading Standards, Licensing, Community Safety, Environmental Health and Car Parking Enforcement.

About PPSS Group:

PPSS Group is specialised in the development, manufacturing and supply of high performance body armour, offering unrivalled protection from firearms, edged weapons and blunt force trauma. PPSS Group’s social media presence: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram.

New ClimateCase Protects Smartphones From Temperature Extremes

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

(Newbury Park, California) – It’s a new product that can prevent a cellphone issue that almost everyone has faced at one time or another. After just 15 minutes below 32°F or above 95°F a cellphone may shut down completely to protect itself leaving you vulnerable and out of touch. The ClimateCase has been launched to address that issue by providing protection for smartphones from overheating and freezing.

ClimateCase’s multi-layered neoprene insulation provides thermal protection for smartphones. The patent pending technology will prevent any smartphone from overheating in extremely hot conditions and from freezing in extremely cold conditions.

“Prolonged exposure to harsh temperatures can permanently damage smartphones and its internal battery,” said ClimateCase’s CEO Lisa Lambert. “With the ClimateCase, there is no need to take the risk.”

Simply place the cell phone inside a refrigerator-cooled or microwave-warmed ClimateCase before encountering extremely hot or cold weather. Or if a phone suddenly stops working, ClimateCase can quickly restore it to its optimal temperature in less than 60 seconds.

“A few years back I took my 13-year-old twins to Arizona for a vacation,” says Lambert. “Within minutes of getting set up at the pool, everyone’s phones started overheating. We spent most of the day walking back and forth from the pool to our hotel room to cool down our phones. We even put them in the mini-fridge to speed up the cooling process. I thought, we CAN’T be the only people dealing with this issue. What if we had some type of pouch that would keep your phone cool? And from there, the ClimateCase was born.”

ClimateCase also protects smartphones against accidental drops which is the number one cause of cell phone damage. ClimateCase is machine washable and fits most cell phone brands and models and is available in multiple colors: charcoal, pink, orange, camouflage and floral.

This video details the use and benefits of the ClimateCase:

GERBER Partners With Boneyard Brewing

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

GERBER ANNOUNCES NEW SHARKBELLY IPA
IN PARTNERSHIP W/ BONEYARD BEER

PORTLAND, OREGON (August 10th, 2017) – GERBER boasts a long history in the Pacific Northwest, designing quality knives and tools that are purpose built for hard working individuals and outdoor enthusiasts. The products may vary in application and user, but one appreciation runs true throughout the greater PNW: that of a good craft beer. When GERBER learned that the folks at Boneyard Beer in Bend, Oregon carry GERBER knives as their everyday tool of choice, the mission was clear: check out the operation and get the new Sharkbelly knife into their hands. What began as a brewery tour and product photoshoot, quickly turned into a badass partnership that taste buds all over the region can benefit from.

Introducing the GERBER Sharkbelly IPA: a special-edition brew by Boneyard Beer.

“After working with the GERBER team and using their gear for so many years, we aimed for a brew that matched the bold and uncompromising attitude that GERBER represents. Our company cultures, branding, and attitudes blend so well, this project has been exciting from the get-go. The Sharkbelly is an everyday carry knife with no frills that is easy to use; likewise, the Sharkbelly IPA is a straightforward, clean, crisp IPA that cuts to the chase and leaves you wanting more.” – Nick Murray, Director of Sales & Marketing, Boneyard Beer

The announcement comes ahead of a limited-run distribution in the Portland, Oregon metro area, aiming to give GERBER fans a chance to experience the hometown brand in a new way. Bend locals can also find it on tap at Boneyard’s tasting room, and if demand calls for it the Sharkbelly IPA may find a place in the permanent rotation for the brewery.

The Sharkbelly is an update to the classic everyday carry pocket knife with lightweight utility and standout features. Designed and built in GERBER’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility, this American made knife is available in partially serrated and full fine edge blade variations. The 420HC modern sheepsfoot-style blade is easily deployed with a sizable thumb hole, revealing flat top serrations that are easy to sharpen on a flat stone and practical for daily abuse. The tactile SharkSkin Grip™ succeeds in function and aesthetics with unidirectional scales that provide additional traction when in hand – smooth in one direction and grippy in the other.

Look for the distinctive tap handle featuring the GERBER logo and a hammerhead shark swathed in an American flag, an ode to two unapologetically badass brands that serve as the masters of their respective crafts.

Polymer80 – Announcing The PF940v2 Coming This FALL!

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Polymer80, Inc. bolsters their product line with a long-awaited update.

Tacoma, WA – July 27th, 2017- Polymer80, the leading developer and manufacturer of 80% polymer AR and pistol products has unveiled the PF940v2™, the next generation update to their best-selling PF940v1™ Glock®-compatible 80% pistol frame.

“We have learned quite a bit since the release of the v1 frame.” said Alex Brodsky, VP of Marketing at Polymer80. “The PF940C™ compact frame, for example, was designed with significantly improved ergonomics and aftermarket features. Since the compact’s release, an overwhelming majority of our customers and dealers have asked that we update the original standard size frame with similar features.”

The PF940v2™ is compatible with components for 3-pin: 9mm G17, 34, 17L; .40S&W G22, 35, 24; and .357Sig G31.

Some of the major changes seen in PF940v2™ include a slimmer grip that is available with an aggressive texture or blank ReadyMod™ style, a double undercut on the trigger guard, and a stainless steel rear rail module, which has been the most requested feature. The PF940v2™ comes with a Picatinny/STANAG compliant accessory rail that features an embedded blank serialization plate. Much like its predecessor, the PF940v2™ kit includes a finishing jig, drill bits, and an end mill, which allows the end-user to successfully convert the frame into a functioning firearm in the privacy of their home.

“We’ve been conducting PF940v2™ range tests for two months now,” said Mike Guttridge, VP of Product. “The aftermarket product compatibility tests have been concluded as well, and we feel confident to start the initial production. We hope to bring the PF940v2™ frame kit to market sometime in the fall.”

What is an 80% Receiver?

An 80% Receiver is a partially completed piece of material that requires special tooling and skills to be completed and considered a firearm. Unlike a firearm receiver it is not required to be transferred through a Federal Firearms Licensed holder (FFL).

G2 Research 12ga RIP Round

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

World’s Deadliest 12 Gauge Round

Winder, GA, August 9, 2017, G2 Research’s NEW extreme performance self-defense 12 gauge round.

In development for over three years by G2 Research this new high-performance 12 gauge self-defense round will hit the market this Fall. The all brass 303-grain individually machined CNC slug is designed for incredible performance against soft targets.

First of all the G2 slug is 0.725-inch in diameter (about a quarter inch larger than a .50 cal. Bullet). When combined with the proven G2 Research R.I.P. technology which releases six trocars (large metal petals) into the target the result is incredible and instant devastation.

Upon impact the six trocars will open, detach and independently spread through the target some 6-inches wide delivering 9-11 inches of penetration resulting in massive damage and shock. The .70 caliber base of the slug will continue forward for another 5-6 inches.

Recoil is greatly reduced due to the lightweight all brass 303 grain slug.

The $49.99 price for five-rounds is painful but this is not intended for shooting at tin cans and cinder blocks. The typical scenario is the average person will go to the range and launch a round or two at a target of some type and load the remainder into their gun for the time should the need arise.

Mike Nickerson, G2’s marketing director says–“This 12 gauge round is very specific in its design and mission; that of a person defending his life and/or that of his family. The real question is how much value we put on put on our own life or that of those we are protecting.”

Specifications:

  • 12 gauge
  • 0.725-inch diameter 303 grain all brass precision CNC machined slug
  • 1430 FPS velocity depending on barrel length, etc.
  • Effective performance design range 0-10 yards
  • MSRP $49.99 box of five
  • IMPORTANT NOTES: This round is designed for self-defense only and has a true effective performance expansion range of 10 yards. Several reasons for this: Much beyond that range the slug will begin to yaw which can affect correct strike angle for it to open as designed. Beyond the design distance of 10 yards it will still do massive damage however.

    Second, it is not designed to be used for hunting, sporting or barrier penetration–it is designed for self-defense. Self-defense means just that and it is difficult to convince a jury that self-defense much past 30 feet really is self-defense.

    Will it penetrate hard objects such as doors, walls, etc.? Of course but it may not expand as designed and, shooting through doors and walls presents a difficult legal case of self-defense in court.

    This round must NOT be fired in guns with rifling, compensators, chokes or modified barrel cylinders, etc. The only type of barrel safely used is a modern smooth bore riot type shotgun barrel.

    SIG SAUER Issues Voluntary Upgrade Of P320 Pistol

    Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

    P320 pistol meets requirements for industry and government safety standards;
    performance enhancements optimize function, safety, and reliability.

    Newington, NH (August 8, 2017) – The P320 meets U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

    The design of the SIG SAUER P320 overcomes the most significant safety concern in striker-fired pistols today: the practice of pressing the trigger for disassembly. This can be performed with a round in the chamber which has resulted in numerous incidents of property damage, physical injury, and death. The disassembly process of the P320, however, uses a take-down lever rather than pressing the trigger, eliminating the possibility of discharge during the disassembly process.

    Recent events indicate that dropping the P320 beyond U.S. standards for safety may cause an unintentional discharge.

    As a result of input from law enforcement, government and military customers, SIG has developed a number of enhancements in function, reliability, and overall safety including drop performance. SIG SAUER is offering these enhancements to its customers. Details of this program will be available at sigsauer.com on Monday, August 14, 2017.

    The M17 variant of the P320, selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), is not affected by the Voluntary Upgrade.

    “SIG SAUER is committed to our approach on innovation, optimization, and performance, ensuring we produce the finest possible products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Durability, reliability and safety, as well as end-user confidence in the SIG SAUER brand are the priorities for our team.”

    SIG SAUER Reaffirms Safety of P320 Pistol

    Friday, August 4th, 2017

    Striker-fired pistol exceeds safety standards of ANSI/SAAMI® and U.S. military testing

    Newington, NH (August 4, 2017) – In response to social media rumors questioning the safety of the P320 pistol, a variant of which was selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), SIG SAUER, Inc. has full confidence in the reliability, durability and safety of its striker-fired handgun platform. There have been zero (0) reported drop-related P320 incidents in the U.S. commercial market, with hundreds of thousands of guns delivered to date.

    The P320 meets and exceeds all U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

    All SIG SAUER pistols incorporate effective mechanical safeties to ensure they only fire when the trigger is pressed. However, like any mechanical device, exposure to acute conditions (e.g. shock, vibration, heavy or repeated drops) may have a negative effect on these safety mechanisms and cause them to not work as designed. This language is common to owner’s manuals of major handgun manufacturers.

    As a result, individual attempts to perform drop tests outside of professionally controlled environments should not be attempted.

    “SIG SAUER is committed to producing only the finest products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Safety and reliability have been and always will be paramount to the SIG SAUER brand.”
