Max Michel Comes Home With Two First Place Finishes in European Competitions

Sunday, June 23rd, 2019

NEWINGTON, N.H., (June 20, 2019) –SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG Captain Max Michel on his two first place finishes in European competition. At the European Steel Challenge Championship, Max placed first in the Open Division held May 30 – June 1 in Winterswijik, Netherlands, and at the Infinity Open, he placed first in the Production Optics Division held June 7-9 in Phillippsburg, Germany.

“As Max begins to prepare to defend his titles at the IPSC World Shoot in 2020, it’s great to see him go into these European competitions and come away with first place finishes,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, and Executive Vice President Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc.  “His performances continue to dominate across the various divisions he competes in and his ability to compensate for various styles of shooting, depending on the match, is really impressive.”

For competition Max used a SIG 1911MAX at the European Steel Challenge, and a SIG P320X5 at the Infinity Open.  In both competitions he used the soon-to-be-released ROMEO3MAX, and SIG SAUER 9mm Match Elite Competition Ammunition

 “The IPSC style of shooting is very different in the fact that they use a target which is 30% smaller and a different shape than the USPSA target that I am accustomed to.  The courses are also formatted in a way that accuracy is more heavily weighted that raw speed unlike U.S. matches,” added Michel.  “Overall, despite the differences in style, I accomplished everything I wanted to and my SIG equipment was a huge factor in elevating my performance to these first place finishes.”

The ROMEO3MAX used by Max Michel in competition is a compact, open reflex sight featuring a 30mm Max round lens design for superior field-of-view, a special red-notch filter for a vivid red dot and unrivaled optical clarity, 6 MOA dot size for rapid target engagement, twelve illumination intensity levels, MOTAC activation, and up to 20,000 hours of runtime.  The sight is machined from aircraft grade aluminum in a matte black finish, with a side-loading battery tray, and waterproof (IPX-7 rated).

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®.

International™ Holster Basket Weave – SKU: C846 – MSRP: $77.00
