Fort Lauderdale, Florida June 13th, 2017- Advanced Combat Solutions, the maker of the Light Emitting Magazine Indicator (LEMI), has launched their new and flagship product, an AR15 magazine follower customized to hold a Gaseous Tritium Light Source(GTLS). The usage of tritium technology is nothing new in the firearms industry as it has been used for decades in firearm’s sights, to improve accuracy in low-light or when shooting at night. The latest innovation by ACS improves upon clear-bodied magazine technology that is seeing more and more use by the civilian population of shooters, law enforcement as well as Military use, by providing a visual means to identify quantity of ammunition remaining in a magazine.

Advanced Combat Solutions has been working with the U.S. Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group for a little over a year now to field test clear-bodied magazines,(the usage of which might see more standard issuance depending on approved requisitions.)

“The addition of the GTLS provides added utility to the main reason an operator would choose to use a clear-bodied magazine to begin with, being able to visually see the rounds in-mag”, said Michael Ball, head of R&D @ ACS. “There are many use cases that the US Military considers beyond the magazine simply being inserted into the weapon for use. At night, magazines can and do get shared by soldiers, also the organization of partially spent mags, and a better understanding of their remaining round count can be ascertained easier and faster if a soldier can visually see the answer within the magazine.” “The technology should be considered a performance enhancement feature to existing hardware, nothing more, nothing less.”

The following is from the technical white papers submitted to the PEO Soldier system;

Tactical/Safety/Usability benefits to Operator:
• Conservation of motion – in low-light/zero-light conditions
• Visual recognition of ammunition quantity within magazine irrespective to time of day
• Uniformity of visual check process for magazine remaining round count steps are repeatable in both day and nighttime operations
• Operators using LEMI technology can instantly visually see indication of remaining rounds via indexing of light emissions off the spine of the magazine body
• LEMI light emissions are directly facing the operator of the weapons platform when magazine is inserted in weapon’s lower receiver
• LEMI has a low-light signature making it only easily viewed by operator

    ACS – The Trigger Pouch

    I first checked out ACS’ Trigger Pouch at MiliPol while walking around with the guys from Knight’s Armamemnt. It is a PALS-mountable, quick-deployment device for grenades and distraction devices such as flashbangs, developed by two operatives from the Israeli elite counter terror unit YAMAM and manufactured by Advanced Combat Solutions. It secures the grenade or distraction device within its housing, where it can be quickly pulled away and deployed in one swift, fluid motion.

    The Trigger Pouch is currently available for the M67 frag grenade and CTS/CTI & Safariland Flashbangs, with other grenades.  Trey Knight got a sample which he plans on using during his next grenade throw day at the range.
