Adams Industries Offers TWO Products of the Week

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Adams Industries has really outdone themselves this week. They’re not offering one, but two products of the week. Both are not only great products that almost everyone can use but they’re also offering a great price.


The first item is a snap-on compass for night vision devices. It fits the PVS-7B/D, 6015, PVS-14 and several other models. The compass allows you to see the compass heading through the device.


The second item is CJ Engineering’s Phoenix JR 123. The Phoenix Jr is a low cost Infrared marker beacon that relies on a single CR 123 battery. It’s easy to use. Turn the battery upside down and it won’t activate. Designed as an individual Combat Identification marker employed to minimize fratricide (the inadvertent destruction of battle field assets by friendly forces), it can also been used as a vehicle ID marker, drop zone indicator and perimeter marker. There isa wire bale on the rear that fits right into your PALS webbing so mounting on your equipment is a snap. The cost is low enough that if you aren’t issued one, you can afford getting it on your own.

Vertx Overwhites Available

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

20120928-181242.jpgJust before SHOT Show we gave you a sneak peek of the Vertx Overwhites. Now, they’re available.

Available in Sml/Med, Lge/XL and 2XL/3XL, the 2-piece garment is manufactured from Duro’s 2 oz Polyester printed with Stealth PXL Snow Camouflage. It’s a very effective digital pattern and the fabric is just heavy enough to mask the clothing and equipment underneath.

There are plenty of features including pass through zippers on the biceps and ventilation pitzips on the parka. Vertx also included a feature often overlooked in military overwhites which is a snot patch on the left forearm. Additionally, the trousers include cargo pockets as well s pass throughs to the trousers underneath.

Wolfhawk – The Knife That Mounts On Your Rifle

Saturday, September 29th, 2012


Normally, a knife that mounts on your rifle its called a bayonet, unless it’s the Wolfhawk. A joint venture between Battle Blades and TOPS Knives, the Wolfhawk series utilizes a sheath that incorporates a Mil Std 1913 rail compatible mount.

Offered in two blade (Hunter and Tanto) and two handle (micarta and paracord) versions, it features a 3-1/4″ blade made from 1095 High Carbon steel (RC 56-58).

When I see things like this that are done simply because they can be, I fear we have invented everything.
