Magpul – Multi-Mission Sling System

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Magpul MS1 QDM Sling

1C3A76EA-4CFF-45FE-9CFC-80487A2D3D21

The Magpul® MS1 QDM Sling further enhances one of the most versatile line of rifle slings by including factory-installed Magpul QDM quick-disconnect swivels. As a heavy-duty replacement for the typical pushbutton swivel, the Magpul QDM offers an innovative low-profile design, single-handed manipulation, a superior corrosion-resistant Melonite® finish, and a high-strength, freely rotating bale that canalizes sling webbing to prevent rollover. This sling system not only provides the strength, speed and security of Magpul QDM hardware, but is also optimized for dedicated two-point sling functionality built around the streamlined MS1 Slider. Once set, this system allows for rapid adjustments to either lengthen or shorten the sling without slippage, tails, loops or other potential snag hazards. In a two-point role, the MS1 allows seamless shoulder transitions, fast adjustability for hands-free rifle carry and shooting support from various positions. The Magpul MS1 QDM Sling retains all of the original MS1 functionality and is fully adaptable for one-point applications with a series of adapters (sold separately) based on the MS3® and MS4® Slings.

In testing, the MS1 Sling survived tens of thousands of cycles in wet, dry and sandy conditions, static-load testing without slippage for 72 hours, and weighted six-foot dynamic drop tests. In addition to the controlled lab tests, we also swam with it, jumped with it, hunted with it, hiked into the mountains with it, and—most importantly—shot with it in a variety of rugged field conditions. The Magpul MS1 QDM Sling is made in the U.S.A. and is fully Berry Amendment compliant.

Quickly reconfigurable between one-point and two-point operation, the Magpul® MS4 QDM Sling enhances the proven MS4 Dual QD Sling Gen2 by including factory-installed Magpul QDM quick-disconnect swivels.  As a heavy-duty replacement for the typical push-button swivel, the Magpul QDM offers an innovative low-profile design, single-handed manipulation, a superior corrosion-resistant Melonite® finish, and a high-strength, freely rotating bale that canalizes sling webbing to prevent rollover. This sling system not only provides the strength, speed and security of Magpul QDM hardware, but also maintains compatibility with the standard QD sling cup interface found on many handguards, lower receivers, receiver end plates and buttstocks.

Atlas Gunworks Releases the Titan Operator Pistol

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Print

North Ferrisburgh, VT – Atlas Gunworks has released the Titan Operator 9mm pistol for duty and self-defense. It’s based on the popular Titan competition pistol and is the newest pistol in Atlas’ growing lineup.

51CE396D-369E-4974-ACEC-5430474AD73F

Atlas understands that competition guns aren’t the best choice for military, law enforcement or self-defense. So, when the tactical team at a west coast sheriff’s department requested 9mm Titans for duty, the Titan Operator was born. Atlas starts with a full-custom 2011 Titan in fit and finish and adds features for the tactical user. Features include a DLC coated, tri-topped and lightened slide, 5” KKM bull barrel, PT aluminum grip, 19 + 1 capacity, tactical rear sight and a railed frame.

A09D1378-F215-46D3-A14C-10B0A00D7138

Pistols for duty and self-defense require an extra measure of reliability. It must run in extreme conditions with many different types of ammunition. To achieve this, Atlas installs heavy duty springs to ensure reliable cycling and primer ignition. The trigger pull is also set to be slightly heavier than their competition guns, coming in at 3.0 to 3.5 pounds.

Staying true to their commitment to short wait times, the Atlas Gunworks Titan Operator ships in less than 3 months. For more information visit atlasgunworks.com or call 855-940-1911.

Massif receives NAVAIR approval on their Revolutionary 2-Piece Flame-Resistant Flight Suit, Paving the Way to Replace Outdated Legacy Gear

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Ashland, OR (01/17/2018) – Massif, a world-leader in flame resistant, high-end, technical apparel for the U.S. military has received NAVAIR (Naval Air Systems Command) approval for their new and revolutionary 2-Piece Flight Suit. Years in the making, Massif, a Pacific Northwest company located in Ashland, Oregon, designed their innovative 2-Piece Flight Suit from direct user feedback across multiple branches and platforms.

8A405395-63BE-4722-A64C-AA72CB96A66E

Armed with this invaluable user input, the Massif team set out to enhance the capabilities of the modern aviator and aircrewman with original design features unique to Massif garments. Intent on dispelling the age-old notion that the Flight Suit must be a standard one-piece, Massif’s designers came up with an athletic style garment, built from Burlington’s Sigma 4 Star™ fabric; certain to set the Flight Suit trend for decades to come.

Charles Sexton, Massif’s Government Sales and Business Development Manager, who worked with NAVAIR towards the approval had this to say about the recent Flight Suit news: “We owe this approval to our loyal customers within aviation, who demanded innovation of an outdated legacy item. Through years of detailed collaboration, we’ve revolutionized both functionality and performance with our new 2-Piece Flight Suit with the sole purpose of enhancing future mission capabilities of our U.S. Military aircrews.”

With flash fire events a potential concern on any jacket and pant separation, Massif engineered and patented a groundbreaking attachment system to connect the jacket to the pant. Neither the jacket nor pant has to be worn with the other in terms of sizing. Massif felt it important to allow mixing and matching of sizes for a better custom fit. This ingenious design allows flexibility and movement between the jacket and pant while still aiding coverage in flash events. The result is a more user-friendly, agile garment that allows men and women to handle their demanding jobs in comfort without sacrificing safety and performance.

To further ensure Massif’s technologically advanced garment met all the needs of the U.S. Military’s athletes-in-the-sky they designed the garment to mitigate heat-stress and enhance quick-drying capabilities by utilizing mesh-lined pocket configurations, yet more features of excellence and attention to safety that Massif is known for.

“We are honored to be able to support such an amazing customer. This approval affirms the dedication of the Massif team to continuously improve and innovate advanced gear that protects those who protect us each and every day.” Said Darci Knobel, V.P. of Sales at Massif.

Incorporating ergonomically designed seam placement, zippered lower legs on the pants for easier donning and doffing, durable ripstop FR fabric, and a modern, athletic fit, Massif left nothing untouched when revolutionizing the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps Flight Suit.

Finally, the Flight Suit, available in both Men’s and Women’s sizing, is one hundred percent Berry Compliant.

Blue Force Gear Brings It All To The Table At SHOT Show

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

POOLER, GA., Jan. 17, 2018For the last 40 years, SHOT Show has been the benchmark tradeshow for professionals in the shooting sports, hunting and law enforcement industries. Brands from all 50 states and more than 100 countries will gather in just one week at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas from January 23 to 26, 2018. Blue Force Gear®will be in attendance displaying an array of its finest weapon slings and tactical equipment. Its product line and experts can be found at booth number 31209 at this year’s show.

“We are excited to highlight our product lineup and really show people that Blue Force Gear offers the best of the best products on the market,” said Ashley Burnsed, CEO of Blue Force Gear. “We have a packed schedule with demos, Q&A’s and more, and we’re looking forward to showing everyone our next generation of gear.”

Marquee products, which will be showcased at SHOT Show, include the Vickers Sling, ULTRAcomp® Pocket Holsters, Micro Trauma Kit Now! (Micro TKN!), and the MARCO™ marking stick dispenser now featuring additional colors.

Blue Force Gear is best known for the patented Vickers Sling™, which was adopted as the standard issue sling for the U.S. Marine Corps in 2011 and is now used by 375,000 service members worldwide. Blue Force Gear is also revolutionizing tactical load carriage equipment to make it lighter and stronger through proprietary design technology MOLLEminus™ and ULTRAcomp®.

Blue Force Gear’s proprietary high performance laminate, ULTRAcomp®, far exceeds the military standard air textured nylon in tear and abrasion resistance. Its hydrophobic features allow products to stay dry and light, whereas air textured nylon retains water and gets even heavier when wet. MOLLEminus is a revolutionary load carriage platform that is fully MOLLE compatible while being the lightest on the market. The same way Blue Force Gear made the lightest MOLLE pouch attachment system with one-piece Helium Whisper backers, MOLLEminus™ is a MOLLE compatible platform constructed out of one piece of ULTRAcomp.

Constructed with the ULTRAcomp technology, the Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp® Pocket Holster is the company’s first foray into the everyday carry (EDC) market. The new EDC pocket holster removes extra bulk while solidly securing and concealing a pocket pistol, creating the thinnest pocket holster available today.

Making major headway in the medical category, the Micro TKN! was recently recognized as the 2018 “Accessory of the Year in Shooting Illustrated’s Golden Bullseye Awards. The Micro TKN! addresses the subject of Individual First-Aid Kits as an important and life-saving component to your Everyday Carry.

In late 2017, Blue Force Gear launched the widely anticipated MARCO marking stick dispenser, a more efficient, effective and compact way to carry marking sticks. The dispenser design makes it simple for users – simply open the Mylar® package with the pre-loaded dispenser, insert the MARCO dispenser inside of the belt or MOLLE pouch and proceed with the mission. The design provides a low profile and prevents the accidental activation of a marking stick.

SHOT Show is owned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and is restricted to the shooting, hunting and outdoor trade professionals and commercial buyers and sellers of military, law enforcement and tactical products and services. The SHOT Show is not open to the general consuming public, and proof of professional affiliation is required.
