US Army Announces Industry Days for Next Generation Squad Weapons

October 20th, 2018

Just two weeks ago the US Army issued a draft Prototype Opportunity Notice for the Next Generation Squad Weapons, their number one Lethality priority which consists of the Next Generation Squad Weapon-Rifle (NGSW-R) and the Next Generation Squad Weapon-Automatic Rifle (NGSW-AR). The NGSW-R is the planned replacement for the M4/M4A1 Carbine and the NGSW-AR is the planned replacement for the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) in the Automatic Rifleman Role in Brigade Combat Teams (BCT). Both are planned to be chambered in 6.8mm, firing a completely new cartridge which does not currently exist. This program is more an ammunition program than a weapon program.

In a notice published earlier today on, the Army announced that it will hold industry days for the upcoming Next Generation Squad Weapons Prototype Opportunity Notice. They will be Wednesday to Friday, November 14 through 16, 2018. This pace shows how dedicated the Army is to the plan.

The NGSW program overview will be provided on November 14, 2018 beginning at 9:00 am and will be completed by 12:00 pm.

The one-on-one sessions will start November 14, 2018 at 1:00pm and continue through November 16, 2018 as necessary. One-on-one sessions will be limited to 45 minutes with a 15 minute break between sessions. Vendors may have partners join their one-on- one sessions.

Th Industry Days will be open to foreign companies but they must follow particular instructions.

MFT’s proprietary Polymer design, technology and production has developed a laser precise, passive retentive, holster offering carry inside the waistband, outside the waistband and appendix positions for a right or left-hand shooter.

“We created these holsters for the shooter looking for a rugged, durable, precision fitting holster that is versatile and comfortable to wear in a variety of carry positions. It’s also great for shop owners as one holster can do it all. Laser scanning of the handguns translates to the creation of CAD files from which unneeded elements are eliminated, creating less wear and a smoother draw and reholstering. These holsters are hand formed in our plant using Boltaron, a polymer offering superior fit and finish with greater wear, chemical and temperature resistance. Our goal, which we have met, is to provide hand finished holsters each meeting our exacting standards and we can do that with immediate delivery. Shooters may customize the retention and cant to their exact liking. Highest quality hardware provides lifetime service. Each unit includes our 1.5″ belt clip, yet other hardware may be easily substituted. It is available boxed or bagged with eye catching displays.” said MFT’s Vice President David Edelman.

The RagnarokSD from T.Rex Arms

October 19th, 2018

Centerville, TN — T.Rex Arms has just released the RagnarokSD, a new OWB holster for the easy carry and rapid deployment of suppressed handguns. The SD supports a wide variety of weapons and suppressors, and its unique shape allows a user to draw and fire the weapon in the same short vertical motion common to standard OWB holsters.

The Ragnarok SD is precision-formed from heavy-duty .125″ Kydex, and is further strengthened by structural ribs that provide a more secure grip on the Surefire X300 series weapon light. The suppressor is braced by vented Kydex wings, which can be modified by the user to support the outside diameter of any can.

While this is a passive-retention holster, with no hood, strap, or button to release the firearm, the retention is fully adjustable. The holster requires the use of an X300U or X300V weapon light, but is available for all Glocks and various Sig, M&P, HK, CZ, FN, and XD suppressor hosts.

The back of the holster features the company’s Ragnarok mounting system, which is compatible with accessories from Safariland, Bladetech, Blackhawk, G-Code, S&S Precision, and others, allowing it be run with countless quick-detach systems, paddles, and offset mounts.

Like all Ragnarok holsters, the SD is modular, tough, and fast. Regardless of the configuration used, the weapon can always be deployed with a drawstroke of less than 6″. It is can be ordered now in Black, Ranger Green, Wolverine Brown, Multicam Original, and Multicam Black.

Base MSRP: $75


T.Rex Arms is a family-owned company in Middle Tennessee, providing innovative Kydex holsters, nylon products, weapon accessories, medical supplies, and training aids.

October 19th, 2018

A completely new rifle with an innovative locking system of Dutch origin
Ascalon_prototype-1_1-2678f2bbPim de Waard, Dutch gunsmith and innovator, has a unique invention: a new Bolt Action Rifle system, named The Ascalon. The system is patented and will be marketed under the new brand Dutch Long Arms.

De Waard has applied this system in a completely new Long Range rifle, also patented.

The prototype has already proven to function beyond expectations, especially at long distances.

In Slovakia, Pim de Waard has extensively tested the prototype (the Ascalon 1) at 1,400 meters with caliber .338 Magnum. The results were amazing.

Right now Pim de Waard is producing the pre-production model in caliber .375 Cheytac, which will be shot at the King of 2 Miles in France in April 2019.

Hanson Uitgevers BV, which operates the patent, has granted the first license to Dutch Long Arms for the production of the first 10 Ascalon Long Range rifles.

Now Available – Altama x SSD x TD Limited Edition Maritime Assault Shoe Mid in Wolf Grey

October 19th, 2018

Soldier Systems Daily has teamed up with Altama to introduce the limited edition Soldier Systems Classic version of the Maritime Assault Mid in Wolf Grey.

Last year, Soldier Systems Daily founder Eric Graves visited the Altama factory in Tennessee and was very impressed with the work being done there. He spoke with Original Footwear owner Kevin Cole about an idea he had been mulling over to raise money for military charities.

The concept of Soldier Systems Classics is simple. Combine old and new into a product which is branded with the Soldier Systems Classic logo. That could be an old design made from new materials or colors like Wolf Grey, or a new product with a heritage paint job like WWII Marine camouflage. Any funds raised by SSD are donated to a deserving charity.

Altama had just introduced the Maritime Assault Shoe which was designed by Eric’s old friend Dan Ellis. They reminded Eric of a modernized version of the sneaker inspired jungle shoes of World War Two and a deal was struck. Altama would introduce a new special color for the Maritime Assault Line and would manufacture 300 pair which included the Classics version of the SSD logo. Eric would select a deserving charity.

Eric is a retired US Air Force Intelligence Officer who served at the 21st & 23rd Special Tactics Squadrons as well as the 720th Special Tactics Group.

For the first Soldier Systems Classic fundraiser, he wanted to identify a charity which is very focused on the community it supports and is effective in delivery of support and services. He asked some of the men he had served with and they suggested The Pararescue Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Public Charity.

The Pararescue Foundation is the only entity dedicated to exclusively support US Air Force Pararescue and Combat Rescue Officer service members, veterans and their families.

Their mandate:
• Relieve the physical and psychological demands of service
• Provide tragedy, transition, and education assistance
• Honor the commitment and sacrifice of those who live by the motto:  “That Others May Live”

Last but not least, SSD turned to Tactical Distributors to handle the sale of the shoes. 10% of the proceeds of the sale of these shoes will be donated to The Pararescue Foundation.

The shoes are limited to 300 pair. Once they are gone, they are gone forever.
