BE Meyers & Co Releases IZLID Ultra in 1064 nm and 1550 nm SWIR Variants

Monday, October 15th, 2018

October 15, 2018 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. has released two Class 4 IZLID® Ultra Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) laser Pointers and Illuminators in 1064 nm and 1550 nm. Featuring the highest power of B.E. Meyers & Co.’s SWIR IZLID® family, the IZLID® Ultra 1064 nm/1550 nm is a powerful beam with up to 1 Watt of out-of-band Pointing and Illumination capabilities, facilitating effective Air to Ground Integration marking and communication. While compatible with a variety of SWIR systems currently in use with Special Operations Forces (including E-COSI), the IZLID® Ultra SWIR variants are undetectable by most common Near Infrared (NIR) night vision devices.

The IZLID® Ultra NIR

The IZLID® Ultra SWIR variants can be used as handheld devices or rail-mounted on a weapon platform. These lasers retain the same rugged, dependable features of the IZLID® Ultra (NIR) that has become the standard JTAC tool for night Close Air Support, and Close Combat Attack scenarios. The beam size and intensity of the IZLID® Ultra family makes it easily distinguishable from other laser pointers on the battlefield.

SWIR IZLID® Ultra variant

B.E. Meyers & Co. will be showcasing all of its products at the Air National Guard Weapons and Tactics show (ANG WEPTAC) on October 16-17, 2018, at the Darley Defense Suite in the DoubleTree Hotel in Tuscon, AZ.

Her marksmanship skills were really put to the test throughout the entire match and she was still able to compete at the very highest level. We could not be more proud of Lena’s continued success.”

This title is the second “High Lady” title for Miculek in September. Miculek recently earned the “High Lady” title at the 2018 Walter Arms USPSA Area 4 Championship in Pistol Caliber Carbine with the SIG SAUER MPX Carbine, ROMEO1 Optic, and SIG SAUER Match Elite Competition Ammunition.

MVT Special Operations Rig (SOR) Now Available in Ranger Green & Coyote Brown

Saturday, October 13th, 2018

The Special Operations Rig (SOR) was designed in collaboration with SOF personnel, specifically to fill the need for a chest rig / PC panel that is optimized for operational use, while able to comfortably carry the AN/PRC 152 radio to the front / side of the body. This has resulted in four kydex magazine pouches (5.56) flanked by two collapsible side pouches that enhance the rig by allowing the carriage of two radios (one each side), or 2 x 5.56 magazines in each radio pouch, or use the pouches for admin items or leave them collapsed. In addition, the front of the radio pouches have four rows of MOLLE, for the attachment of admin pouches as needed.

These specific design features and capabilities have resulted in a chest rig that is extremely versatile to varying load requirements, and will suit non-military as well as military personnel, whether or not you carry a radio on your gear. It can be used entirely as a standalone chest rig, attached to a plate carrier, or as a hybrid allowing optional attachment to a plate carrier, depending on the tactical situation.

Wear the SOR with the supplied H-harness, over a Plate Carrier or standalone.

Utilize the supplied PC Kit to attach the SOR directly to your Plate Carrier.

Multiple use options, as an assault panel over a PC, or standalone in ‘recce mode.’

The SOR is designed to allow the radio pouches to adjust comfortably across your chest, or if worn over a PC, the radio/mags fit into the space beside your front plate.

Available colors:
Ranger green
Coyote Brown

Saturday, October 13th, 2018

Yesterday, Tomb Guards from the US Army’s 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) were presented with 4 ceremonial M17 pistols at Arlington National Cemetery. These works of art were created by SIG SAUER specifically for use by the Guards.

This ceremony marks the first use of the M17, which will accompany the Sentinels of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers they stand guard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The unique distinguishing features for the M17 Tomb of the Unknown Pistols include:

Pistol Names: each of the four pistols bears the name of Silence, Respect, Dignity, or Perseverance and is featured on the dust cover. Dignity and Perseverance represent “The Sentinel’s Creed,” and Silence and Respect represent the request to the public by Arlington National Cemetery when visiting the Tomb of the Unknown, and during the Changing of the Guard;

Custom Wood Grips: in 1921 the chosen Unknown was transported to the United States of America aboard the USS Olympia. The custom wood grips are made with wood from the USS Olympia and include the crest of the 3rd Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier identification badge inset;

Cocking Serrations: XXI cocking serrations are engraved on the slide to signify the twenty-one steps it takes for the Tomb Sentinels to walk by the Tomb of the Unknowns and the military honor of a 21 Gun Salute;

Sight Plate: an engraved impression of the Greek Figures featured on the east panel of the Tomb – Peace, Victory, and Valor – are featured on the sight plate;

Sights: a glass insert made with marble dust from the Tomb of the Unknown fills the sights of the ceremonial pistols;

Engraved Magazines: the 21-round magazines feature an aluminum base plate engraved with the names of the Greek figures featured on the Tomb of the Unknown – Peace, Victory, and Valor – and include a name plate on the bottom of the magazine engraved with the Tomb Sentinel badge number.

Serial Numbers: the pistols are serialized with a unique set of serial numbers that incorporate items of significance to the Old Guard: “LS” represents line six of the Sentinels’ Creed, “My standard will remain perfection; “02JUL37” to signify the first 24-hour guard posted at the Tomb of the Unknown on July 3, 1937; “21” to signify the 21 steps it takes the Tomb Sentinels to walk by the Tomb of the Unknown, and the military honor of a 21 Gun Salute. The full series of M17 Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Pistols serial numbers are LS02JUL37A21 (Silence), LS02JUL37B21 (Respect), LS02JUL37C21 (Dignity), LS02JUL37D21 (Perseverance).
