MDM – Geissele Automatics

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

This is the first time that Geissele Automatics exhibited at MDM and they were showing their Super Select-Fire (SSF) Trigger. Designed specifically for use with automatic AR-style weapons, it is a non-adjustable combat trigger. In semi-automatic mode, the SSF performs like a match-grade two-stage trigger that allows precise and accurate trigger control. Conversely, in fully-automatic mode, the SSF performs like a single-stage trigger with a smooth, continuous trigger pull and abrupt hammer release. This trigger is in use with USSOCOM and is great for a designated marksman that will also use full-auto capability.

MDM – Darn Tough Vermont ADS Tactical

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011


Darn Tough Vermont’s Extreme Cold Weather Boot Sock was chosen to fill that role by MARCORSYSCOM for the Marine Corps. Darn Tough Vermont’s socks are made from American Merino wool that offers anti-microbial protection and are inherently FR and oh so comfy. Many of their Berry compliant line (including the ECW Sock) were designed exclusively for tactical use where Darn Tough Vermont is rapidly dominating that market.

Agency or unit orders for this or any Darn Tough Vermont product can be fulfilled by ADS

Looking for an alternative to the old UDT shorts? So were USN Rescue Swimmers. They started cutting the legs off of their DRIFIRE 2 piece flight suit. DRIFIRE saw this and worked with the SAR Swimmers to develop a Board Short that was optimized for their use. In addition to the more functional longer legs, the Board Shorts also have simple flat cargo pockets as well as a simplified Velcro closure and elasticized waistband with an articulated waist. The double seat also increases durability. Oh, did we mention that they’re also FR?

MDM – Camelbak

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Camelbak serves as a sub-contractor to the primes for new Marine Corps Pack Suite after the mil-spec Antidote was chosen as the hydration system.

It features a wide opening mouth into a low profile, 100 oz baffled reservoir with a quick disconnect tube. The low profile cap requires just a quarter turn and can’t be over tightened to help mitigate leaks from breakage.

A commercial version should be available in exchanges beginning Spring 2012.

MDM – MMI Outdoor

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

The Armadillo from MMI Outdoor is a further improvement over their popular Improved Bed Net System issued by Army and Marine Corps.


With the Armadillo, the fly is suspended from a single pole mounted fore to aft. Additionally, there are access points on both sides. This gives you a double wall individual shelter with full bug net coverage at just under 3 lbs.
