Butler Creek Introduces New Featherlight Multi-Purpose Sling

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

New Sling Designed to be Lightest Model Ever Produced by Butler Creek

?

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – January 22, 2020 – Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, is excited to announce the lightest rifle sling ever produced by the company with the introduction of the Butler Creek Featherlight sling. Designed to be 45% lighter than any other model offered by the company, the new Featherlight sling features an industry first design with the use of a close cell foam inner material.

The new Featherlight sling is as comfortable as it is durable, resulting in a true multi-purpose sling perfectly suited for long days in the field. Whether used on a bolt-action, shotgun or modern sporting rifles, the Featherlight sling is easily added to any firearm through the use of optional swivels or a conventional strap.

Once in the field, hunters and shooters will appreciate the Featherlight’s breathable construction. Made possible by cut out slots that are evenly spaced across the close cell foam, the Featherlight sling reduces more trapped heat than other competitive models. The Featherlight’s close cell foam also provides superior gripping ability, allowing it to easily adhere to synthetic clothing.

For added security when navigating rough terrain, the Featherlight sling features a large thumb loop attached to the bottom of the sling. Additional features include two built-in cartridge holders giving shooters immediate access to extra ammo should the need arise. Adjustable from 22 to 36-inches, the Featherlight sling is the perfect addition to any long gun.

The new Featherlight slings will be on display during the 2020 SHOT Show (Booth No 14551), January 21-24 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Brownells Launches BRN-180 Lower Receivers

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

Brownells has just made building a homegrown AR-180 even easier with the release of the BRN-180 Lower Receivers to go with the Uppers they launched at last year’s SHOT Show.

Granted, they’ve introduced some new features like the Picatinny attachment at the rear of the receiver to accept stock systems, but over all, the BRN-180 Lower does a great job of giving the look and feel of the original. As you can see, this allows for multiple configurations, from pistols, to collapsible or folding stocks.

But the real treat is the upcoming stock from B5 Systems which is very similar to the original AR-180 stock.

Below is their press release for the new BRN-180 Lower Receivers.

Brownells Unveils BRN-180 Lower Receivers at SHOT Show 2020

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (January 21, 2020) – Brownells unveiled a pair of BRN-180 lower receivers on the first day of SHOT Show 2020, expanding its popular BRN-180 line.

The lower receivers allow BRN-180 fans to build complete firearms optimized for folding stocks or folding braces, as well as the other unique features of the BRN-180 uppers.

The BRN-180 Lower Receivers accept standard AR-15 magazines, and include:

100-036-374 BRN-180 Forged Lower Receiver
• Replicates appearance of original AR-180 lower
• Integral Picatinny Rail segment for easy folding stock or brace install
• Accepts most modern mil-spec AR-15 components

080-001-382 BRN-180M Billet Lower Receiver
• Machined from solid billet for strength and durability
• Appears more like standard AR-15 receiver
• Integral Picatinny rail segment for easy folding stock or brace install
• Accepts modern AR-15 components
• $149.99 retail

“The BRN-180 and BRN-180M Lower Receivers were created to take full advantage of the contained recoil system of the BRN-180 Upper Receiver,” said Brownells Director of Product Management Paul Levy.  “The BRN-180 Lowers are available in a forged model, which is inspired by the contours of the original AR-180, and a billet, BRN-180M model, which has a modern profile and design”.

Brownells offers BRN-180 complete uppers in the following models:
BRN-180S 10.5″ barrel
BRN-180 16″ barrel
BRN-180 18.5″ barrel

Forged lowers are anticipated to be available by February 2020. 

Billet lowers are in stock and shipping now.

Cloud Defensive Announces Rail-mounted Environmental Illuminator

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Cloud Defensive is proud to announce the arrival of its newest line of weapon-mounted lights. The Rail-mounted Environmental Illuminator (REIN) represents the redefinition of a modular carbine/long-gun weapon mounted light. A completely proprietary system, made in-house, in the USA, it’s loaded with performance and features. REIN is now the most dominant light on the market.

Configurations

Every REIN unit ships with the light, a Nitecore charger, a battery and a Picatinny mount for the light itself. Cloud Defensive is also making a full-line of light mounts for the MLOK interface. The chosen configuration dictates any additional package contents.

REIN will be available in two different system configurations. All configurations will be available in anodized Black and anodized Flat Dark Earth.

1) The Basic Kit: A Push-button-only configuration for those who do not want remote switching option. This is also the lowest cost configuration and the most simplistic.

2) The Complete Kit: Includes a remote switch featuring both momentary and constant-on activation. Standard on all Complete Kits is an integral push-button feature in the tail-cap, which allows for both momentary and constant-on operation that is electrically isolated from the remote switch.

This gives operational redundancy in the system, should the remote switch become non-functional. So each Complete kit has momentary/constant capability both on the remote, and on the tail-cap. Housing the remote switch is an included 3rd generation Light Control System with integrated cable control. The remote switch terminates inside the actual tail-cap of the light via a 90 degree cable connection leaving zero exposed wire out the back of the light.

Size Options

Two REIN lights exist so the end-user can select the size most appropriate for their needs. Offering virtually identical power output, the difference in run-time simply comes with battery size. The full-size REIN has better run-time numbers than the Micro. That is the only notable difference between the two.

1) The standard REIN, which accepts any standard rechargeable 18650 battery (protected or unprotected).

2) REIN Micro, which accepts any standard rechargeable 18350 battery

Innovative Features

Every REIN utilizes Patent-Pending technology that hardens the system and delivers the features that end-users require. The result is the next-generation

1) The Battery Jack.

Traditionally, batteries are held in place by a spring or piston at each end of the battery. However that is a liability as battery lengths vary and battery movement can be devastating to a system under recoil. Cloud Defensive created the Battery Jack to solve this problem. A simple yet robust adjustable device inside the light body allows the user to quickly lock the battery into place, creating tension and sandwiching the battery between the head of the light and the back of the light body. This locks the battery in space and ensures it does not move under any recoil, unlike all the competitors. The Battery Jack also give REIN the ability to run on any 18650 (full size) or 18350 (Micro). Including all the USB-charged 18650/18350 batteries.

2) The Tail-Cap Cartridge and Serviceable Tail-Cap Assembly.

All previous remote-switching options on the market shared 2 liabilities:

First, specialized tail-caps are required (adds cost/complexity) and secondly, external plugs/sockets create big liabilities for system life, electrical efficiency and water ingress. REIN solves this with its removable tail-cap Cartridge. Integral to the remote switch/cable assembly itself, the Cartridge i houses the entire rear electrical system of the light and is completely over-molded for complete and total waterproofing. It features two tabs, visible on the tail-cap itself, that allow the user to simply remove it by pulling on it. This makes the REIN tail-cap fully configurable and serviceable. In approximately 10 seconds, the user can easily convert the light from push-button-only to remote-switch or vice versa.

3) Remote Switch.

Modern weapon mounted lights are more powerful than ever. This requires updated switch design. Cloud Defensive is the first company to address this need. With a completely innovative and powerful switching system, the REIN has an electrical system that is optimized for high power output and long

service life. That includes extensive use of both gold and silver plating. And like the rest of the light, it is all made in-house.

Additionally, the cable itself terminates in the Cartridge and is aligned with the mounting feet of the light body. This ensures the cable not only exists the tail cap at 90 degrees but that it does so between the light body and the rail of the weapon. The result is zero exposed cable.

4) Field-Serviceable Lens.

The REIN features a field-serviceable lens housed inside a removable S7-Tool Steel bezel ring that is heat-treated to 55 Rockwell. With 3mm low-iron glass and the protection of the tool steel, the head of the REIN is effectively an impact tool that can be easily serviced (glass replacement) by the end user should the need arise.

5) Mounting Options.

Every REIN ships with a Picatinny Rail Mount. Additionally, Cloud Defensive is manufacturing a line of MLOK mounts for the REIN series that offer more strength than previously available. And the REIN can be retrofit to other manufactures scout-style mounts as well.

Performance

REIN has electrical efficiency that dominates the weapon light landscape. Much of the development effort centered around this.

– Candela: 59,000+ (Pending official confirmation)

– Lumens: 1300-1400 (Pending official confirmation)

– Run-Time: 90-130 minutes (Pending confirmation)

– Light Temperature: 4000k. This is a warmer light that defeats photonic barriers and allows the human eye to better identify colors on the target at night.

– IPX8 Waterproof rating. Fully submersible to at least 100 feet for 24 hours. Durability. Impact-proof and virtually indestructible.

– Lifetime warranty (see website for details)

Cost

REIN will be priced very competitively and at a lower price than it’s only competitor. REIN Basic Kit will cost approximately 260 dollars at retail. REIN Complete Kit will cost approximately 310-20 dollars at retail.

Availability

REIN is scheduled to ship in late April 2020. Cloud Defensive hopes to beat that timeline. For more information, go to www.clouddefensive.com

On IR models, choosing between tactical white light and infrared illumination is as simple as rotating the bezel. Our rugged, shrouded Z68 push-button tailcap switch comes standard on all Scout Light Pro models and can be easily replaced with any of the remote-activation switching solutions available for our fixed-mount Legacy Scout Light models.

Constructed of lightweight aerospace aluminum, Scout Light Pros have no appreciable impact on weapon handling characteristics. And with a Mil-Spec Hard-Anodized finish and O-ring seals to keep out the elements, they can endure the harshest conditions. Like previous generations of SureFire WeaponLights, the new Scout Light Pro will help you prevail in combat.
