XTech Tactical Responds to Frivolous Lawsuit brought by Century Arms

Friday, September 28th, 2018

September 27th, 2018

Mesa, AZ – In response to the frivolous lawsuit, Civil Action No. 9:18cv-81295 (S.D. FL), brought by Century International Arms, Inc.

XTech Tactical® will not relent its inherent and obvious rights to sell what is known to the market as the MAG47™. The complaint filed against XTech Tactical® contains a baseless claim of trade dress which is clearly an attempt to intimidate a much smaller and younger business.

XTech Tactical® was founded on and operates with the highest level of integrity and is extremely confident in its position. Furthermore, it is important to the company to set the precedent that it will not lay down to baseless threats, regardless of another entity’s size. XTech Tactical® has been preparing for the likelihood of a lawsuit since January of 2018 when Century Arms first sent a demand letter to Molded Devices, Inc., the manufacturer of the MAG47™.

Before XTech Tactical® begins the development or redevelopment of any product, it exhaustively studies the existence of preexisting intellectual property. During the research related to the MAG47™ project, it was discovered that no one controlling the US Palm brand owned any patents, proprietary designs, or other valid intellectual property related to US Palm’s AK47 rifle magazines.

The XTech Tactical® MAG47™ currently available in two configurations on www.xtechtactical.com is quickly being established as the single greatest US Made AK47 magazine in history. MSRP on the magazines range from $26.95-29.95. The company obsessively studied consumer feedback and requests related to the ideal AK47 magazine. From that study and substantial engineering effort came what is now, the MAG47™. XTech Tactical® strives and will always strive to be the leading company in the industry when it comes to hearing its customers’ and potential customers’ voices.

XTech Tactical® is co-title sponsoring Red Oktober in Utah October 6-7th and will also be exhibiting for the first time at SHOT Show booth 4164.

RailScales PEQ – LEAF Fixed Iron Sight In-Stock at Milspec Retail

Friday, September 28th, 2018

265A1E5C-7760-4526-B593-A99B311C2CB4

The all-new RailScales PEQ – LEAF® Fixed Iron Sight just arrived in-stock at Milspec Retail. The PEQ – LEAF® is a fixed adjustable front sight that attaches to picatinny rail systems. It was specifically designed to decrease the mounting footprint of the AN/PEQ15 ATPIAL series laser on the MK18 Mod 1/CQBR weapon system using the Daniel Defense® RIS II Rail (P/N:DD-8020, NSN: 1005-01-548-138). Currently, the issued Knight’s Armament Company® MK18 front sight (P/N:99051, NSN: 1005-01-473-1410) is used with an PEQ/ATPIAL series laser, which creates ergonomic and functional issues. In addition, 12 o’clock rail space for optimally mounting illumination/laser pressure pads is greatly diminished. Using the KAC MK18 front sight also creates IR splash from both the illuminator and the laser apertures which greatly increases the users IR signature. The PEQ – LEAF® eliminates both of these problems by mounting in front of and underneath the PEQ unit with almost no perceivable footprint.

Available in very limited supply with up to a 1 year lead time before our next re-stock due to government purchases. Full spec sheet can be found here.

“I was excited to join the team at Operational Medicine Consultants because I felt strongly about their mission,” said Pucciarelli. “While this advancement comes with a lot

of new responsibilities and challenges, I am excited to now be in a position to help drive the overall direction of the company as we pursue even greater opportunities. It is especially gratifying to work with a team that puts such trust in me and my vision.”
