BLACKHAWK! Announces New Products for 2017

Friday, January 13th, 2017

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (January 12, 2017) – BLACKHAWK!, an industry leader in tactical products, will launch several new products to dealers at booth 14551 at the 2017 Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas, January 17 to 20.

The new BLACKHAWK! AR-15 No-latch Ambi Charging Handle is a drop-in upgrade to any AR-15. The handle is automatically held to the receiver with a leaf spring, eliminating the need to squeeze a small latch to charge the rifle. The innovative design gives full ambidexterious control, which is welcome news for left-handed shooters. The distinctive over-molded handle provides a larger pull point from both sides, easily clearing low-set optics.

Pistol-grip shotguns are renowned for their ease of handling and manipulation, though running rounds through them can take a physical toll. The BLACKHAWK! Knoxx BreachersGrip Gen III mitigates the wear-and-tear with a patent-pending recoil reduction system that mitigates kickback from the heavy loads. The ergonomic design allows the user to comfortably control the shotgun in every scenario.

The new Knoxx AR Pistol Grip improves shooting accuracy and precision with the ability to manipulate the firearm. Offering premium comfort and stability for the AR platform, the improved grip angle and palm swell offer an intuitive fit, and the grip is further improved by the textured surface.

Two new apparel items will also be added to the Spring 2017 BLACKHAWK! line-up. The Convoy ¼ Zip Shirt, and the Stretch Shield Pant. The new BLACKHAWK! Convoy ¼ Zip Shirt is made from a knit fabric and stretch cover stitching to allow for excellent range of motion. The,two-tone mélange pattern helps to minimize imprinting of a weapon and a Teflon Shield+ coating repels stains, oil and water. Chest and sleeve pockets allow for everyday item storage. The new BLACKHAWK! Stretch Shield pant features mechanical stretch rip stop fabric and articulated knees, and delivers maximum movement and flexibility. Teflon Shield+ protective coating and quick-dry capabilities keep this pant clean and comfortable. Bartacks and rivets at the seams reinforce high stress points, and strategically placed pockets allow for secure accessory storage.

Several new footwear items will also be available to dealers at SHOT. These items include two casual wear options, the Terrain Lo shoe and the Terrain mid boot. Both of these footwear options are ideal for both training and every day wear. Comfort and support are emphasized with these styles, which provide memory foam insole cushions and Agion antimicrobial lining to control odor.

Other boot options include:
-The BLACKHAWK! Defense, a military-grade boot that is AR 670-1 Compliant, includes a Vibram outsole for maximum traction and stability and an OrthoLite Insole to cushion the foot.
-The BLACKHAWK! Street is a versatile, comfortable boot with Lightweight 1000 Denier Padded Nylon to add reinforcement and extra stability.
-The Force boot features a HydroGuard + Breathe Right moisture wicking membrane that is both waterproof and breathable.
-The V3 boot’s quality construction starts from the ground up with a Vibram outsole and an OrthoLite Insole. The V3 goes on and off easily with the NATO Lace System. Plus there’s room to store small gear, such as a knife, in the Lycra Lateral Pocket.

Mike Noell, Founder and Former CEO of BLACKHAWK! Forms SENTRY Products Group

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Virginia Beach, Va. (December 21, 2016) – When you take four executives from an industry leader like BLACKHAWK! and give them a blank page, you can expect product advancement and rapid growth. Mike Noell, a former U.S. Navy SEAL and Founder / CEO of BLACKHAWK! has partnered with his Executive Team; Terry Naughton, Scott Ferros and Eric Yeates to form SENTRY Products Group, LLC.

Over the past 18 months, the group has acquired three industry brands; Scopecoat, Slideboot and Sentry Solutions. “Each of the acquisitions operated in a very defined space, and we knew we needed to develop the master brand to house and expand product lines as we had done in the past at BLACKHAWK!” stated Noell. “The creation of SENTRY Products Group with the tag line “Live To Protect” was something the team felt defined our mission well; the protection, storage and transport of Outdoor, Military, Law Enforcement Equipment.”

As Noell was evaluating additional acquisition options for the group, the SENTRY Executive team worked to move, consolidate and stabilize the brands by building the internal operating systems to support future growth. Distributors, dealers and OEM partners have recognized these changes, and the group has seen consistent growth in U.S. and international markets. As part of a multi-pronged growth plan, now is the time to utilize the team’s extensive manufacturing expertise.

“We have taken the opportunity to re-open the facility which housed the original Michael’s of Oregon (Uncle Mike’s) factory in Boise, Idaho, and have begun to rehire our former BLACKHAWK! crew,” commented Noell. “Our Boise facility will support all U.S.A. manufacturing, global sourcing and distribution. The Virginia Beach facility will be headquarters and all other functional departments. I am thrilled to be putting our team back together.”

“The mission now is to serve our industry and customers to the best of our ability and grow as quickly as possible so we can bring everyone back,” said Terry Naughton, President.

At the 2017 SHOT Show, to be held January 17-20 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Booth #614, SENTRY will highlight newly designed products in categories such as bags, packs, belts, scope covers, gun covers and gun-cleaning technology, along with the new branding of SENTRY.

“We wanted to start with the products our distribution and OEM partners requested first. These products link us back to previous developments with updated materials and manufacturing technologies. We are having a blast working together again. We are back! Our head is down, and we are focused. Additional products and category offerings will follow,” stated Eric Yeates, VP Product Development.

If you are interested in becoming a distributor, dealer, OEM customer, or would like to request an appointment to preview the new products at SHOT Show, please contact us at (877) 726-7328.

Blackhawk Introduces The Omnivore Holster

Friday, September 30th, 2016

I got to check out the new ‘Omni’ during Modern Day Marine and I am impressed. It’s nothing like the Serpa, a holster which is synonymous with Blackhawk. Named because it will accept virtually any pistol you put in it, the Omnivore offers Level 2 retention ans fits more than 150 styles of semiauto pistols. Unofficially, it will fit almost three times that, but right now they are only claiming 150.

The secret sauce is their proprietary Rail Attachment Device. The Omnivore’s active retention mechanism locks onto RAD, not the frame of the handgun. It doesn’t wear the pistols frame or slide. A 3-position adjustable height thumb release disengages the locking mechanism when drawing the handgun. In the case of lightbearing models, the holster locks unto the weapon light.

This graphic depicts the three initial models. Light bearing versions include the Streamlight TLR-1/2 and the SureFire X-300U.

One final note; the Omni is designed to acceot all of Blackhawk’s holster mounting options.
