215 Gear Opens Pre-Orders For 2 New Products

November 17th, 2017

215 Gear has added two new belt systems, available now for pre-order; the Uber Rigger’s Belt and the Uber Shooter’s Belt. Both are a combination of features from competition shooting and tried and tested features already built into their Ultimate Riggers Belts. 215 Gear feels these are by far, the most feature packed belts on the market.

Uber Riggers Belt

Designed to be worn alone or as part if a system with their inner Uber Liner Belt, the Uber Riggers Belt incorporates an internal plastic stiffener and PALS channels to the outside. The Austrialpin Cobra Buckle has a custom wide mouth version of the friction adapter, allowing for easier removal from the belt, eliminating the fight of most other belts, and reducing the peeling off of the sewn in Velcro. Additionally, rather than the parachute v-ring, 215 Gear uses a sewn-in attachment point.

Uber Shooters Belt

215 Gear’s Uber Shooters Belt combines the best characteristics of sport shooting with the functionality of MOLLE. It is similar in construction to the Uber Riggers Belt except that it doesn’t feature the sewn-in attachment point.

Both belts are available in MultiCam, Khaki and Black and in sizes to accommodate waists 25″ to 45″. The pre-order is open now and will close 11DEC17, with the pre-orders shipping 12DEC17, just in time for Christmas.

Raven Concealment Systems Announces Perun Holster

November 17th, 2017

Raven Concealment Systems has given first look at their new strong-side outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster to SSD. It is called the Perun, named after the Slavic war god.

The holster can be described as the best features of the Eidolon holster body merged with the body-hugging strong-side profile of the Phantom.


The holster body’s design, clearly based heavily on the Eidolon, significantly reduces the holster’s overall size, making it more concealable. This smaller profile is also more comfortable while seated in vehicles.


Because the body is ambidextrous, it comes with 1.5” belt-loops designed to allow left or right-handed shooters to configure it for either 10-degree cant or a 0-degree cant. This ambidextrous design philosophy has been present in all of RCS’s latest products (like the VanGuard 2, Eidolon, Morrigan, and Copia product families) and simplifies inventory for retailers and government clients because there is no need to try to forecast how many lefty holsters need to be ordered.


Unlike the Phantom (which it replaces in the RCS lineup) the Perun has an innovative adjustable retention slider that allows a uniquely crisp retention that is unmatched by other polymer holsters. Unlike the more traditional “screw-through-rubber gasket” style of adjustable retention, the Perun’s retention design allows easy tension adjustments that do not back off after repeated draws.


It is injection-molded of a polymer blend that is substantially stronger than Kydex or Boltaron, and allows it to remain functional after sustained exposure to high temperature levels that would cause Kydex holsters to lose their form.

The Perun will be available for pre-launch purchase on Black Friday, with units shipping in time to be under the tree for Christmas morning. The first three models it will be available for will be:

Glock 17 (Gen 5/Glock M and backward compatible)
Glock 19 (Gen 5/Glock M and backward compatible)
Glock 43

Following quickly thereafter, will be a Perun LC for:
Glock 19/17/34 + Streamlight TLR-1 HL
Glock 19/17/34 + Surefire X-300U

Followed quickly thereafter by (order subject to change based on .gov orders):
Sig P-320
Sig P-320 Compact
S&W M&P Shield 9mm (2.0 and backward compatible)
Ruger LC-9
1911 5” Government profile
Springfield XDS

The list will continue to have models added as units move through tool-up and into production.


Additional belt attachment options will also be unveiled in the coming months.

As with all RCS products, they are made in the USA and are backed with an unconditional lifetime warranty.

Meprolight Launches a Unique Multi-Spectral Weapon Sight At Milipol

November 17th, 2017

Combining Uncooled Thermal Channel with Digital Day/Night Camera, MEPRO NYX-200 improves soldier’s situational awareness and allows rapid target acquisition in any lighting conditions and any environment


Milipol 2017, Paris, France, November 21-24, Stand G-025

November 16, 2017. Meprolight Ltd. – a member of the SK Group and a leading manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, self-illuminated sights, and Laser Range Finder systems for military, law enforcement and civil applications – launches the unique MEPRO NYX-200 multi-spectral weapon sight and hand-held device, combining an uncooled thermal channel with a sensitive high-resolution digital day/night camera, at Milipol 2017. This sight improves the soldier’s situational awareness, and allows rapid target acquisition in any lighting conditions and in any environment.

According to Assaf Shimron, CEO of Meprolight, “Modern battlefield challenges force soldiers to carry an expanding array of systems, sensors, and equipment. The weight of this equipment and the need to operate a variety of devices reduces mission effectiveness and may compromise soldier safety. To solve these issues and improve the modern soldier’s operation, we developed the MEPRO NYX-200.”


“The MEPRO NYX-200 is a lightweight, all-in-one weapon sight that includes a thermal imaging channel and day/night sensitive camera, integrated DVR and IR pointer,” Mr. Shimron continued. “This solution replaces at least four (4) different systems currently carried by the average soldier. It allows ongoing work, 24/7, in all environments and weather conditions – meeting the demands of the modern battlefield and increasing mission effectiveness.”

The MEPRO NYX-200 is available in two configurations: thermal channel with digital night camera or thermal channel with digital day camera. The combination of thermal channel and digital night camera (DNC) enables enhanced situational awareness with maximum view at any level of darkness in any environment. The thermal channel can be used in total darkness and through fog, camouflage, etc. The sight’s digital night vision is optimized for Close Quarters Battle (CQB), face recognition, and more.

The combination of thermal channel and digital day camera (DDC) enables the soldiers to use the sight for both day and night operation, eliminating the need to change sights/devices between day and night, and allowing soldiers to move between dark and light environments, such as entering dark places also during daytime.

Long operation time based on four (4) commercially available batteries enables soldiers to complete missions without power failure. The integrated IR pointer supports various tactical scenarios including CQB and covert night operations. Using integrated DVR enables image capture and video recording and transmitting for mission debriefing. MEPRO NYX-200 was designed and fabricated to the most stringent military standards, including MIL-810, to assure years of reliable operation under all field and environmental conditions.

Hi-Lux Introduces New Tactical Rifle Scope For 3-Gun Matches

November 17th, 2017

Hi-Lux Close to Medium Range 1-8X26 FFPHi-Lux Close to Medium Range 1-8X26 FFP Rifle Scope


Specifically designed for close to medium range tactical applications, including 3-Gun competition, the Hi-Lux Close to Medium Range 1-8X is a first focal plane scope featuring the illuminated CW-4 reticle. At 1X, the outer horseshoe of the CW-4 reticle naturally directs the operator’s attention to the center of the reticle featuring a 1 MOA dot and large outer horseshoe for quick target acquisition. At higher power, the outer horseshoe moves out of the sight picture, revealing a smaller, inner horseshoe with dots and crosses spaced 1 mRad apart that can be used for estimating winds holds and distance or tracing shots. There are dots that indicate every whole Mil, which the shooter can use for elevation or windage holdovers. The first focal plane (FFP) design ensures the reticle subtensions are accurate at every power. The CW-4 reticle is available in red or green illumination and includes 3 night vision light levels.


The 34mm tube provides incredible light gathering ability for better sight picture resolution and clarity at dawn or dusk.
