POF USA Wins Rifle of the Year from the Industry Choice Awards for the Third Year in a Row

Thursday, June 20th, 2019

(06/18/2019) Phoenix, Arizona – And the winner is… Patriot Ordnance Factory is proud to announce taking home the Rifle of the Year award from the 2019 Firearms Industry Choice Awards for their Revolution DI rifle. POF-USA was honored to attend and thanks everyone involved in the awards process, as well as congratulating the other winners.

The Revolution DI (Direct Impingement) shares features, advancements, and technology of the prior award winning Revolution PD (Piston Driven) with one distinct difference, its operation. The direct impingement operation allows for a smaller profile handguard, lighter weight, and 9 positions of adjustment thanks to the DIctator gas block.

POF-USA broke from the industry status quo by making an AR15 that shoots .308. It is important to note that the Revolution DI is not an AR10, or even a small frame AR10. The Revolution DI is the same size as an AR15. The Revolution DI is built on the unique and fully ambidextrous Gen 4 lower, produced with 100% American made raw materials and coatings, and state-of-the-art technology. Like another award winning POF-USA rifle, the Renegade+, the upper receiver is engineered around their unique heat sink barrel nut, 9-position adjustable DIctator gas block, a match-grade barrel, and Renegade M-LOK rail with 4 built in QD sling mount points.

POF-USA is proud to continue leading the MSR market with their feature-packed ultimate fighting machines.



POF-USA is an Arizona-based small arms manufacturer known for its revolutionary concepts and radical approaches to engineering used to develop the finest piston driven AR-type rifles used by civilians and professionals worldwide. They accept no compromise in the building of their product, known as “Patriot” designs. They will only produce that which is tough, accurate, modular, durable, and true. This patriotic mission is brought from passion, authenticity, trustworthiness, rebellion, independence and objectivity.

NEW! Basket Weave Kydex Products from Comp-Tac

Tuesday, June 18th, 2019

For Immediate Release – HOUSTON – Comp-Tac® a leader in high quality holsters for competition, concealed carry, and duty use, recently released new basket weave Kydex® variants of many of its most popular products.

Comp-Tac® has enhanced their products by imprinting a basket weave finish on their high-quality, air-craft grade Kydex® . Because the pattern is imprinted into the Kydex® it will not rub off or wear over time. It gives a long lasting visual as well as tactile feel of basket weave on the customer’s favorite holster, mag pouch, handcuff or tourniquet TACO® product. In addition to the basket weave finish, the stenciling of the item’s make and model has been moved to the back to maintain the clean look the basket weave offers.

“A large number of law enforcement officers are required to carry basket weave finish on their gear as part of their department regulations,” explained Bill Babboni, High Speed Gear® Vice President of Sales and Operations. “For many, this has limited their product choices. Now that Comp-Tac® can create a basket weave pattern on Kydex® products, we hope to expand those officers’ choices and allow them to carry the gear they need and want while still meeting their departments’ requirements.”

Available in black Kydex® only, basket weave finish is available for the International™ Holster, Warrior Holster, Single Magazine Pouch PLM, Kydex® Tourniquet TACO® and Kydex® Handcuff TACO®.

Monday, June 17th, 2019

Philadelphia, PA. – High Ground Gear (HG), an exclusive product line of Ehmke Manufacturing Company, Inc., proudly announces the release of two (2) versions of their new BANG Pack.  The BANG Pack compliments HG’s mission-specific line of tactical and outdoor gear.

“The design/release of the two (2) new BANG packs from High Ground rounds out our extensive offerings of bags, packs and load out bags. Operators rely on HG’s history of fantastic, high-quality bags that provide great flexibility. The new BANG Packs are available in 2 different versions,” stated Mike Runella, High Ground’s Director of Business Development.  He added “we already have our larger family of legacy packs with the HG-3-Day and HG Summit that have been very well-received for years by our end-users. Our customers now turned to us for a smaller version of our pack for their smaller missions.

The BANG Pack “Tactical” is a mid-size 3-Day pack features 1/2” Volara® Closed Cell Foam and air mesh back padding, utilizes HG’s exclusive cable routing shoulder straps, and includes a stowable/removable waist belt system. The BANG Pack-Tactical provides numerous modular attachment points on the front of the pack for the end user to customize his/her pack.

The BANG Pack “Slick” is built off the same platform, shape and size but has been toned down to be more of an everyday carry bag. The Slick version also utilizes the slimmer ½” Volara® foam and shoulder strap configuration. With its sleeker appearance, the BANG Pack-Slick is the perfect pack for that weekend hike or plane ride. The Slick will be available in a wider range of colors for the outdoor enthusiasts.

“Our new BANG Packs offer a cool alternative to our successful HG 3-Day and HG Summit packs,” offers Ehmke Manufacturing Company, Inc. CEO, Bob Rosania.  “The packs are specifically designed to provide the customer with the high quality workmanship expected of a High Ground product without all the extensive features of our legacy packs at an affordable price point.”

US Marine Corps Adoption of M18 Underscores Success of SIG SAUER Modular Handgun System Program

Monday, June 17th, 2019

NEWINGTON, N.H., (June 17, 2019) –SIG SAUER, Inc. is honored to announce that the United States Marine Corps (USMC) is set to adopt the M18, the compact variant of the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), as their official duty pistol.

“The Marine Corps announcement to put the M18 in service with the Marines is a very exciting development for SIG SAUER, and a true testament to the success of the MHS program,” began Ron Cohen, President & CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The Marine’s procurement of the M18 brings the adoption of our Modular Handgun System full circle, as this means, beginning in 2020, either the M17 or the M18 will be officially in service with every branch of the U.S. Military.”


The M18 is a 9mm, striker-fired pistol featuring a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide with black controls.  The pistol is equipped with SIGLITE front night sights and removable night sight rear plate, and manual safety. 

Recently, the M18 successfully completed a MHS Material Reliability Test that consisted of firing three M18 pistols to 12,000 rounds each for a total of 36,000 rounds in accordance with the MHS requirements.  Comparatively, the U.S. Army’s legacy pistol was only tested to 5,000 rounds making the test duration for the M18 pistol 2.4 times greater than that of the legacy pistol.  In this testing, the M18 experienced zero stoppages despite being allowed up to twelve stoppages.  Additionally, the M18 passed a parts interchange test, and met stringent accuracy and dispersion requirements.

“The success of the MHS program is the direct result of the indisputable performance and superior quality of the M17 and M18 pistols, and the commitment and dedication of the men and women of SIG SAUER to those that serve in the defense of freedom,” continued Cohen. “We are very proud, and humbled, to have earned the trust of every branch of the U.S. Military through their acceptance of the MHS program and adoption of the M17 and M18 pistols.”

Currently, the M17 and M18 are in service with the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.  The USMC will begin their acquisition of the M18 pistol in 2020.
