SOFIC – SureFire Dual Switch Tail Cap

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

This is the long anticipated Dual Switch (DS-07) from SureFire. It works with any Scout light and was designed specififcally for an Army requirement. It incorprates both remote tape switch as well as integrated button.  Thanks to the Vampire family of lights, it offers both white and IR light without the use of a filter. In this case, it’s a M350V. This configuration offers weight savings over redundant lights or use of a filter.

SOFIC – Suppressed Optimized Bolt Carrier Group-Long Stroke from SureFire

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Not long ago I saw a BCG bearing the SureFire logo. I thought it was a pretty example of laser engraved branding but didn’t realize that it was actually an entirely new product called the Suppressed Optimized Bolt Carrier Group-Long Stroke. It consists of a Bolt Carrier Group, Buffer and Action Spring.

I know that’s quite a name but the new SOB-556-LS from SureFire was designed to improve reliability of suppressed AR-style weapons, particularly during full auto fire.

One major update to this BCG is the spring loaded counterweight visible at the back of the carrier. It helps slow things down a bit with the components all working together to minimize bolt bounce during full auto fire. Ultimately, it all results in more dwell time to the rear for the BCG, giving the magazine 30% more time to load before the weapon has completed cycling.

As you can see, the Black buffer of the SOB-556-LS is .4″ shorter than a Mil-Spec buffer. However, SureFire has developed different buffer weights based in your gas setup.

There is also a new action spring which is slightly longer than the Mil-Spec version and also made from a narrower gauge material. You’ll also note that it features a red marking on the end to denote it is different from the Mil-Spec spring.

Currently undergoing government evaluation, these should be available soonish.

Sneak Peek – SureFire Blank Safety Device

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

This is the SureFire Blank Safety Device. It attaches and detaches exactly like an issue SureFire SOCOM suppressor and features the same size and weight. Naturally, it also fits on all SureFire SOCOM flash hiders.  That’s the beauty of this Blank Safety Device, it works just like the live fire version.

This one in particular is ported for the SOCOM issue M4A1 14.5″ barrel URG. It has an internal spud that tightens unto the muzzle with the thumb wheel embedded in the side of the suppressor-style body. This bullet trap technology safely captures a 3-round burst as you can see in the barrel cross-section above.

The Blue color identifies it is meant for the M4 carbine and the MK18 BSD version is Yellow in color. Part number SF-BSD-556-M4.
