Vertx Announces Its Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Tactical pants that offer all the function and performance prepared professionals demand while providing the ultimate in comfort and fit.

Cincinnati, Ohio (April 2017) – Vertx®, a leader in low-profile apparel and gear for the prepared professional, announces the release of its newest product, the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants.

The Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants are the perfect storm of fit, function and comfort. While the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants embrace classic Vertx features, such as the inset cargo pockets, a full gusset and articulated knees, they have been elevated with innovative features demanded by today’s prepared professionals. These features include a durable, stretch PolyCotton fabric and VaporCore™, powered by 37.5® Technology, which keeps the wearer cool when it’s hot outside and evaporates moisture instead of wicking, allowing the pants to dry 5x faster than similar pants. The pants also feature 14 unique pockets, many of which are mesh-lined, which increases breathability and reduces weight. From range day to tactical operations, the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants provide everything needed to maximize performance and stay comfortable.

“There’s no point in having ultra-functional and high-performing tactical pants if they’re too uncomfortable to wear and don’t move with your body. That’s why we’ve designed the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants to provide ultimate comfort, functionality and fit. Once you try these on, you’ll never want to wear anything else,” said Darrell Morrow, vice president of Vertx.

1.) Relaxed features like a side stretch waistband and a higher rise in the back to maintain proper ­fit.
2.) Articulated back yoke with two convenient utility pockets.
3.) Lower front hand pockets for easy access with or without a holster.
4.) Vertical zippered pockets above cargo pocket for added storage and ease of access when sitting.
5.) Fully gusseted crotch allows for extended comfort in virtually any position.
6.) Angled back pockets for ease of access and credential flaps to protect important items.

The Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants come in black, desert tan, khaki, navy and olive drab and will be available in a Men’s and Women’s cut. MSRP is $89.95. To learn more about Vertx, visit www.vertx.com.

Flag-Saving FedEx Guy Joins Brownells at NRAAM

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

GRINNELL, Iowa (April 21, 2017) – Brownells proudly supports American patriots who wear uniforms of all types – sometimes even those who wear a package delivery uniform.

When footage of Matt Uhrin, an Iowa City-area package delivery man, appeared on national media showing him bravely saving an American flag from being burned by a group of protestors, Brownells knew they had to thank their fellow Iowan.

An NRA member and U.S. Army combat veteran, Mr. Uhrin, also known as the “FedEx Guy” will attend several events with the Brownells team at the upcoming 146th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta, GA.

These events include the open-to-the-public Brownells Social Media Meetup taking place in the Omni Hotel South Tower Lobby on Friday, April 28, at 6:30 PM. In addition to Mr. Uhrin’s presence, Brownells will host Eric & Chad from IraqVet8888, Mr. Guns ‘N Gear, LeaSpeed6, Janna Reeves, RapidFire Rachel and other industry social media personalities.

Mr. Uhrin will also be honored during a special presentation in the Brownells booth (#1713) at 1:45 PM (EDT) on Saturday, April 29.

“I am extremely excited and honored to be given this opportunity to go to 146th NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits with the great people from Brownells,” said Uhrin. “It is extremely humbling to be given an opportunity like this.”

“It’s a privilege to honor Matt at this year’s NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits,” added Pete Brownell, CEO of Brownells. “This annual gathering is not only a celebration of our Second Amendment and the freedoms we enjoy as Americans, it’s also a place to acknowledge real people who do the right thing. I can’t think of a better place to thank Matt for his service to our country and the heroism he displayed while protecting our Nation’s flag and all it stands for.”


Ritter & Stark Rifles Now Carried by EuroOptic.com

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

EuroOptic.com, a leading online distributor for high-performance firearms and optics for sportsmen, police and military, is first US distributor to carry the Ritter & Stark SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle models and accessories.

Feistritz, Austria (April 2017) – Ritter & Stark GmbH, an Austrian-based firearms design and manufacturing company, is proud to announce EuroOptic.com, a large online retailer of fine optics and firearms from the leading manufacturers, to be the first US distributor for the SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle, conversion kits and accessories. The SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle (MTR), which has received major media attention since it’s unveiling at the 2017 SHOT Show, is now available in three calibers, along with Ritter & Stark conversion kits and accessories all at www.eurooptic.com.

“Partnering with EuroOptic.com was a natural for Ritter & Stark,” Yakov Trakhman, Marketing Director for Ritter & Stark said. “EuroOptic’s primary focus is to carry high-performance products for the discerning customer and the SX-1 MTR undoubtedly fits that criteria.”

The SX-1 MTR long-range precision rifle is now available in .308 Win, .300 Win Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum and 20”, 24” and 27” barrel lengths at EuroOptic.com. EuroOptic.com also offers Ritter & Stark conversion kits for the quick caliber change between any of the three available calibers.

Conversion kits contain a Ritter & Stark barrel with Picatinny rail and a bolt face for conversion of most calibers. The .308 Win converting to a .300 Win (24”) and .300 Win/.338 LM (20”) conversion kits include the Picatinny railed barrel, bolt face and a magazine adaptor. The .300 Win Mag/.338 LM 24” conversion to a .308 Win include Picatinny railed barrel, magazine adapter, bolt face and a 10 round magazine. Other accessories available at EuroOptic include magazine adapters, bolt heads, Picatinny rails, muzzle break, forend handguard with M-LOK, tactical sling and a hard transport case with a customized insert for the SX-1 MTR and accessories and the Spuhr Scope Mount Assembly, recommended by Ritter & Stark.

What sets the SX-1 MTR apart from other long-range precision rifles are several well thought out and executed design features such as having the MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail installed directly on the barrel, thus allowing the user to interchange barrels with pre-set scopes without a loss of zero within minutes. The patented caliber conversion system assures that the barrel is precisely positioned in the machined aluminum receiver, allowing for a greater area of contact, resulting in increased stability. The bolt also locks directly into the barrel breech, which gives the SX-1 MTR unprecedented accuracy.

The SX-1 MTR’s accuracy is a result of Ritter & Stark’s proprietary rifling process. This process extends barrel life, ensures uniformity throughout all barrels produced and most of all, benefits the user with superior performance and accuracy.

Colt Congratulates Maggie Reese on USPSA MultiGun Nationals Win

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (April 20, 2017) – Colt is pleased to congratulate Team Colt shooter Maggie Reese as she achieves the title of 2017 Ladies National Champion in Open Division at the USPSA MultiGun Nationals, April 14-16 in Boulder City, NV. This is Reese’s fourth win in this competition, previously having won in 2009, 2010, and 2015.

“Another outstanding performance from Maggie,” said Paul Spitale, SVP at Colt. “We are so proud of the excellence that Maggie continues to achieve on the competitive field through her passion and hard work. It’s something that all of us here a Colt draw a good deal of inspiration from.”

The competition drew over 250 competitors to test their rifle, shotgun, and handgun mastery. There were thirteen stages, and targets exceeded 300 yards. Reese competed in the Open Division, which allows the use of multiple optics and bipods with no limit on magazine capacity.

“This match always offers an excellent challenge,” said Reese. “I depended on my Colt LE6920 to really drive home the rifle stages, and as always, it performed flawlessly. It’s one less variable I have to worry about at a match.”

Come see Maggie Reese at the Colt booth (#2830) at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA, April 28-30, 2017. There she will be signing posters along with the Team Colt shooters Mark Redl and Wyatt Gibson.
