Unity Tactical FUSION Friday

Friday, July 20th, 2018

FUSION, by Unity Tactical, is a system of modular, multi-purpose components that provide end users unparalleled flexibility in mounting accessories to weapon platforms.  It offers complete control in attachment of lights, lasers, sights, and other equipment to achieve complete integration, optimal placement, lightest weight, and most economy of space.


This FUSION configuration features the Micro Hub 2.0, Backup Iron Sight – Folding, and Lightwing – Left.  The build is mounted in front of an AN/PEQ-15 laser and supports a Surefire M600U Scout Light.  Mounting the Micro Hub forward of a laser allows a pressure switch (shown here with TAPS) to be snugged right up behind the laser body for easy access to both onboard and remote controls.  The Micro Hub is extremely low profile, creating no interference with lasers.  The Backup Iron Sight – Folding is narrow enough to easily fit between the apertures of dual output lasers.  The Lightwing will readily accept direct-mount of Surefire Scout and Millennium series weapon lights, as well as Streamlight PROTAC Rail-Mount lights.  This Lightwing is the Left Side variant, but mounted backwards on the right side of the rifle – cantilevering the light within the footprint of the rail.  Attaching lights to the Lightwing raises them up above the bore and tucks them tighter under the laser body for an extremely compact package.

FUSION Config 1B BreakOut

FUSION components are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and MILSPEC Type 3 anodized.  Designed and made in the US from US materials and good ole’ fashioned American innovation.  FUSION is the original and best modular accessory mounting system.  Make your gear work for you, not the other way around.

FUSION components are available from Unity Tactical and authorized dealers to build your perfect setup.

TNVC Mohawk Gen 2 Now Available, Gen 1 on Clearance While Supplies Last

Thursday, July 19th, 2018


In the short time since the release of the original Generation 1 Mohawk Counterweight and Storage systems, the Mohawk has been a runaway hit with military, LE, and civilian night vision users alike. Rather than resting on our laurels however, we’ve continued to improve upon the original Mohawk design and listened to user feedback, and we are now proud to announce the launch of the Generation 2 Mohawk Counterweight/Storage system.

Designed by TNVC staff and incorporating operator feedback as well as our staff’s own battlefield experience, we designed the Mohawk Gen. 2 to be a highly functional, modular accessory for all modern warriors. It provides useful storage and retention of mission-essential gear and will attach to any currently-fielded ballistic or bump helmet with Velcro.


Manufactured in the U.S. by Spiritus Systems, the Gen. 2 Mohawk is 100% Berry compliant, and is now constructed out of a much lighter weight 500D Cordura Nylon without giving up any of the functionality or features of the 1000D Generation 1 design. The Gen. 2 Mohawk also feature fully color and pattern matched Velcro loop fastener, even in patterns such as Multicam Aridä, Multicam Blackä, and Multicam Tropicä to provide an uninterrupted surface pattern. We’ve also introduced the highly requested Ranger Green colorway to the Mohawk line, replacing the Olive Drab of the Gen. 1 design.


Like the Gen. 1 Mohawk, the Gen. 2 Mohawk comes in three models:

· Mohawk MK1—Counterweight pouch with four user-configurable lead weights to adjust the counterweight from 4 ounces to a full pound, as well as a removable battery storage tray, perfect for almost any NVG system from the AN/PVS-14 to dual-tube systems like the AN/PVS-15, TNV/Sentinel, DTNVG, and more


· Mohawk MK2—For use with systems utilizing the ANVIS Low Profile Battery Pack (LPBP), Adams Industries Ground Warrior Battery Pack, or L-3 Cold Weather/GPNVG/FGS battery pack


· Mohawk MK3—Compact remote battery pack storage for systems utilizing the L-3 BNVD battery pack such as the AN/PVS-31A



Mohawk MK1 Gen. 2


Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2


Mohawk MK3 Gen. 2

The Mohawk Gen. 2 offers all of the great features that made the original Mohawk a hit, including the vertically-oriented Mohawk strip, which is the centerpiece of the design, featuring a Velcro pile surface that accepts attachment of all currently issued / fielded signal strobe devices. The continuous pile strip allows for precise placement of the device on the rear or top of the helmet while providing enough room for attaching a blast sensor device. The adjustable shock cord net provides secondary retention for the devices while not limiting access to their controls. The shock cord net also provides excellent storage for a SOF-T tourniquet for those not using an IR strobe.

The Gen. 2 also features extended cable management loops for communications downleads, as well as a cord lock retainer to prevent the retention bungee from shifting or hanging loose when mounted. The Mohawk also features multiple loops for ready access to spare batteries, as well as secondary retention tie-down points for additional stability and security.

The Generation 2 Mohawks are on sale now at $79 for all versions.

We are also running a clearance sale on all remaining stocks of the Generation 1 Mohawk while supplies last, with MK1 Gen. 1s and MK2 Gen. 1s priced at $59, and $69 for the MK3 Gen. 1.


SIG SAUER Brings the U.S. Army’s M17 to the Commercial Market

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Newington, N.H. (July 18, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the commercial variant of the U.S. Army’s M17 official service pistol called the P320-M17.


After one of the most rigorous and highly competitive review processes in the history of military firearms the SIG SAUER M17 was awarded the Modular Handgun System (MHS) contract for the U.S. Army. The M17 is a P320-based platform, and was selected for its uniquely innovative modularity, uncompromising performance, and unmatched capability. The P320-M17 closely follows the specifications of the U.S. Army’s M17.

“It was truly an honor for SIG SAUER to be chosen as the U.S. Army’s choice with the M17. When the selection was announced, civilian interest in the pistol was immediate,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We are proud to bring this P320-M17 to the marketplace to meet the substantial civilian interest, and the high demand, to own the pistol the Army uses as well as the other branches of the U.S. Military.”

The P320-M17 is a 9mm, striker-fired pistol and comes with two 17-round magazines. The pistol features a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide with the same optic cut as specified by the MHS contract, and black controls just like the pistols currently being shipped to the U.S. Army; it comes equipped with a SIGLITE front night sight and removable Night Sight rear plate. The P320-M17 features a coyote-tan carry-length grip module, available in three sizes, and comes standard with a manual safety. Non-manual safety P320-M17 pistols will be shipped at a later date.

The P320-M17 Specs:
Total length: 8”
Barrel length: 4.7”
Weight (incl. magazine): 29.6 oz.
Height: 5.5”
Width: 1.3”
Sight radius: 6.6”
MSRP: $768.00

The P320-M17 is shipping to stores in August 2018.

To complement the P320-M17, an exclusive M17 Collector’s Case is available for purchase separately at sigsauer.com/store. The case is a solid cherry box, with dark mahogany stain, a tempered glass top, a brushed nickel latch, and a keyhole back for optional wall-hanging. The M17 Collector’s Case features a slate-grey flocked foam insert with an affixed U.S. Army logo, and precision laser placement cuts for the P320-M17 pistol, and included P320-M17 certificate and P320-M17 Official Challenge Coin.

M17 Collectors Case MSRP: $199.99 (sold separately at sigsauer.com/store)
