SIG MMG 338 Program Series


In honor of their One year anniversary, MATBOCK asked us to share this statement. It’s a little unconventional for us, but it includes two cool things. One is a preview of an upcoming product that we’ve been trying out and the second is a discount for our readers.

In November of 2011, we officially launched our products to the market with the release of the Constrictor Cargo System, Tree-GO IZLID pouch and most recently, the LIFT System. To date, the LIFT System is undoubtably our greatest product with its lightweight design and versatility, all developed with the modern day warrior in mind. At only 3.5 lbs, no other system can come close to what the LIFT System is currently providing to the battlefield and we have new features in the final stages of T&E.

To help celebrate MATBOCK’s 1yr anniversary, we are offering an exclusive 10% discount for all SSD readers. Please just enter “SSD10” during checkout to receive your 10% discount. This coupon code will be good for the entire month of November. In addition to this great discount, MATBOCK will also release new products in the coming weeks here on SSD. Follow us at, on Facebook, and stay tuned to SSD for further details.

Here is a sneak peak of one product that is still in the final stages of T&E. The next great evolution for Night Vision is here.

    Thanks for the discount MATBOCK. As a true believer that the LIFT is the best litter on the market, I am stoked for new additions to the system…ladder? Looking forward to new products you guys put out there in the coming months. The Eclipse looks pretty BAD ASS.

    How far does the aperture have to be closed down until you achieve the “fixed focal length”?

    • MATBOCK says:


      The aperture serves two purposes on the Tarsier Eclipse:

      First, it allows the user to modulate the amount of ambient light coming into the NVGs. For darker conditions such as internal rooms of a building or even moonless nights, the operator can open the iris and allow more light to enter, creating a brighter picture through the NVGs. When operating in more urban settings with more ambient light, the Tarsier Eclipse can be closed down, decreasing the amount of light into the tubes, and preventing some of the issues currently present from artificial lighting.

      Second, and more to your question, closing down the iris gives the Auto Focus capability to the Tarsier Eclipse. Between 5-6mm, the iris will operate optimally, giving the operator a clear picture through his NVGs 4000 meters away, a map in his hands, and everything in between. As the lighting conditions may dictate though, the operator will balance the amount of light required for the best picture with his auto focus needs. By opening the iris beyond its optimal working conditions, the operator will notice his auto focus abilities diminish. The more opened the iris becomes, the more focused the image from the Night Vision will become to range previously set by the internal focusing rings of the NVG itself. It is NOT an all or nothing setting, but more a progressive effect. Please let us know if you have any further questions
