SureFire Suppressor Division Awarded NSNs

Thursday, August 22nd, 2019


Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is pleased to announce that NATO Stock Numbers (NSN) have been assigned to the SOCOM556-RC2 Suppressor and three different SureFire muzzle devices for 5.56 mm rifles.

SOCOM556-RC2 / NSN 1005-01-668-4190

Hold the Objective. Attach the SOCOM556-RC2 to any 5.56 mm weapon system with a minimum barrel length of 10 inches, and you will. The RC2 showcases our USSOCOM contract-winning know-how in cutting-edge suppressor design, and incorporates the latest in manufacturing techniques and materials to produce the most exceptional tool of its kind. Count on it to deliver the utmost in sound, flash and dust signature reduction. Precision-built of advanced Inconel alloys and stainless steel, and CNC laser-welded for uncompromising durability, the RC2 features unique internal baffling that reduces backpressure and sound, matching supreme accuracy with extreme quiet when compared to an unsuppressed weapon. It’s the best overall suppressor in any environment.

WARCOMP-556-1/2-28 / NSN 1005-01-646-9074

Choose the Best of Both Worlds. Flash hider? Muzzle brake? The proprietary design of SureFire’s WARCOMP flash hiders/suppressor adapters provides the best attributes of both devices. WARCOMPs deliver superior flash reduction and significantly reduce muzzle rise, helping to conceal your location, preserve your dark-adapted vision and keep you on target for faster follow-up shots. They effectively eliminate more than 98% of all muzzle flash, even on short-barreled rifles, and their port direction can be optimized for virtually any shooting style. Precision-machined from U.S. mill-certified, heat-treated stainless steel bar stock, every WARCOMP includes high-precision single-point cut barrel threads for optimum thread interface. DLC coating provides maximum protection under harsh environmental conditions and facilitates cleaning even after extreme use. Surefire WARCOMPs are the best suppressor adapters in the world. Period.

SF3P-556-1/2-28 NSN 1005-01-626-8770

Hide Your Position. SureFire’s advanced SF3P three-prong flash hiders deliver superior performance with a patent-pending design that greatly reduces muzzle flash — typically greater than 99% — when compared with a plain muzzle. Available for use with a variety of rifle calibers and muzzle thread specs, they are precision-machined from U.S. mill-certified heat-treated stainless steel bar stock and DLC-coated to resist erosion for consistent high performance. SF3P flash hiders feature robust tines built to withstand the rigors of combat, and every SF3P is carefully inspected for concentricity and alignment, ensuring a rock-solid mounting surface for SureFire SOCOM Series Fast-Attach® suppressors.

SFMB-556-1/2-28 NSN 1005-01-668-7486

Reign Over Recoil. SureFire SFMB muzzle brake suppressor adapters greatly reduce both recoil impulse and muzzle rise so that your weapon tracks straight back, keeping you on target for faster shot-to-shot recovery. Our proprietary Impulse Diffusion design minimizes side blast and rear-directed concussion effects. Precision machined from U.S. mill-certified heat-treated stainless steel bar stock and DLC-coated for extreme durability, they are available for a variety of weapon calibers and muzzle thread specs, and every SFMB serves as a rock-solid mounting adapter for SureFire’s combat-proven SOCOM Series Fast-Attach® suppressors. The SFMB design incorporates multiple bearing surfaces to ensure superior suppressor alignment. Blind pilot holes at the 3 o’ clock and 9 o’clock positions enable fine-tuning of recoil characteristics for individual shooting styles or ammunition characteristics. Blind pilot holes at the 6 o’clock position enable indexing the adapter at the bottom dead center. All that’s required is a basic hand drill and appropriate drill bits.

LAPD and LASD Equip 180 SWAT Officers with Team Wendy Helmets

Thursday, August 22nd, 2019

Elite Los Angeles Tactical Teams Purchase EXFIL® Ballistic SL

Two of the best tactical teams in the U.S. have chosen Cleveland-based Team Wendy® as their ballistic helmet provider.

Team Wendy, which researches and develops high-quality headborne systems from the inside out, announced Thursday that the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) purchased the company’s EXFIL® Ballistic SL helmet. LAPD bought 85 black helmets for its SWAT team, and LASD ordered 95 helmets in ranger green for its Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB).

LAPD’s SWAT team rescues dozens of hostages and manages 120-plus high-risk warrants and approximately 100 barricaded suspect cases per year. It responds to barricade or hostage incidents where the suspect is believed to be armed or an extreme threat to public safety. Typical situations include the presence of weapons, suspected gang activity and heavily fortified locations.

LASD is the largest sheriff’s department in the world. The Special Enforcement Bureau, newly equipped with Team Wendy helmets, is a full-time unit of tactical paramedics and rescue specialists, including a canine detail and a special weapons team. It works hand-in-hand with the department’s arson/explosives and hazardous materials details and coordinates security for visiting dignitaries and politicians, including the United States President and Vice President. SEB responds to an estimated 200-300 tactical operations every year, including barricaded suspects, high-risk warrants and hostage situations.

Team Wendy CEO Jose Rizo-Patron said the company exists for the sole purpose of protecting officers like these.

“The men and women of the LAPD and LASD put their lives on the line every day and we take pride in knowing we play a role in their safety,” he said. “This is why we do what we do.”

Joe Nagy, who works with law enforcement agencies around the country on behalf of Team Wendy, said the EXFIL Ballistic SL is built to do exactly what these agencies need.

“We spent a long time engineering this helmet so it would perform at a high caliber,” he said.

The EXFIL Ballistic SL is the fifth helmet in Team Wendy’s EXFIL line. It has a complete system weight of 2.2 pounds, meets a ballistic rating of NIJ Level III-A (according to NIJ STD 0106.01/0108.01) and exceeds ACH blunt impact protection requirements. It features the newer, lighter EXFIL Rail 3.0 for more efficient accessory mounting and the boltless CAM FIT™ Retention System for individualized fit and superior weight distribution.

LAPD and LASD join Orange County Sheriff’s Office and more than 20 other law enforcement agencies in southern California that wear Team Wendy helmet systems.

Former ADS Inc CEO Agrees To Pay US Government $20 Mil to Settle False Claims Act Allegations Related to Fraudulent Procurement of Small Business Contracts

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

The US Department of Justice announced that Luke Hillier, founder and former CEO and majority owner of Virginia Beach-based ADS Inc has agreed to pay the United States $20 million to settle allegations that he violated the False Claims Act by fraudulently obtaining federal set-aside contracts reserved for small businesses.

The government alleged that Hillier caused ADS to falsely represent that it qualified as a small business concern when it failed to do so, including due to its alleged affiliations with a number of other entities.  The United States alleged that, as a result of Hillier’s representations, his company was awarded numerous small business set-aside contracts for which it was ineligible.       

The settlement announced today resolves a lawsuit filed under the whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act, which permits private parties to file suit on behalf of the United States for false claims and share in a portion of the government’s recovery.  The lawsuit was filed by Ameliorate Partners LLP in federal district court in the District of Columbia and is captioned United States ex rel. Ameliorate Partners, LLP v. ADS Tactical, Inc. et al., Case No. 13-cv-1880 (D.D.C.).  Ameliorate Partners will receive $3.6 million from the settlement with Hillier.  

The government previously resolved related claims stemming from the same case against ADS for $16 million, and Charles Salle, the former general counsel of ADS, has agreed to pay $225,000 to resolve claims arising from his role in the alleged scheme. 

DoJ states that the claims resolved by the settlement are allegations only, and there has been no determination of liability.
