Warrior West 21 – BOSS-Xe by Wilcox Industries

Wednesday, June 30th, 2021

In addition to being a red dot sight, the BOSS-Xe (Ballistically Optimized Sighting System – Enhanced) features a red visible laser, infra-red (IR) laser and fixed IR illuminator.

One of the big changes for the BOSS-Xe is that you can now swap between two preset ballistic trajectories with the flip of a switch-without having to re-zero the weapon (think .300 sub and supersonic). What’s more, the Lasers/illuminator/reflex all co-aligned with one adjustment.

It’s powered by a single CR123A battery, offering 10 Hrs on Dual High IR Laser only.

Wilcox products are available for unit and agency orders from ADS, Inc.

Warrior West 21 – Hendricks Motorsports Advanced Seat Liner

Wednesday, June 30th, 2021

What you see here are seat cushion sections developed by Hendrick Motorsports for NASCAR to increase survivability during crashes. This configuration called the Hendrick Advanced Seat Liner was developed for PM-Apache and is currently under evaluation for use by Apache helicopter crews.

The Apache was initially designed during the Cold War for two hour missions but today the missions are eight hours long. The seat is more comfortable with the padding contoured to support the body. It also protects the spine and pelvis from injury.

Testers at Apache manufacturer Boeing have referred to the seat as the “Cadillac of Seats” and one Apache test pilot with over 30 years experience called it the “Mack Daddy.” Although you won’t find it on the Apache version, the seat can also be air conditioned. The seat also features a self-extinguishing foam with leatherette covers. This is the same material used in seats on Air Force One.

Warrior West 2021

Wednesday, June 30th, 2021

Warrior West just kicked off at San Diego’s PetCo Park and this is what I’m seeing. How is that for signage?

I’ve been to a lot of tradeshows and I can say this is truly a unique experience. I’ve never attended a tradeshow at a ball park. Turns out, PetCo Park has never hosted a tradeshow either.

It’s great to be back out here attending shows and seeing both vendors and customers. If you’re in the area, you should be here. There are way more vendors at this show than I can cover and some offer products outside the purview of this site.

One of the Warrior Expo’s premier sponsors is Atlantic Diving Supply. In case you miss this one, there will be an even bigger version in their hometown of Virginia Beach at the end of July. But even if you’re not here, be sure to keep up with our coverage over the next few days.

F.A.B. Defense Adds the FRBS Offset Kit to Its Line of Accessories

Wednesday, June 30th, 2021

For Immediate Release – Modi’in, Israel. – F.A.B. Defense® is pleased to announce the addition of Front / Rear Backup Sight Offset Kit to their line of accessories. The FRBS Offset Kit is in full production and is distributed exclusively in the USA by The Third Bull & Co.

The FRBS Offset Kit is a must have addition to any platform that is running an optic as a primary sighting system. Long range scopes can struggle to perform in high speed close quarter scenarios, reflex sights that rely on batteries can die, and bad weather will adversely affect both. Operators that opt for the basic sight redundancy of the FRBS Offset Kit, will enjoy a backup sight on the 45 degree offset that is snag free with a low profile while not in use and speedy deployment when seconds count.

The F.A.B. Defense® FRBS Offset Kit is a hard polymer construction, making it a cost effective, light weight, and durable weapon sighting solution. The FRBS Offset Kit takes up a single slot on a 1913 Picatinny rail and clamps securely into place with an Allen head screw. Customers have the options for either right or left eye dominance and can select between in Black, OD Green, and FDE colors.

F.A.B Defense® FRBS Offset Kit Features
– Low Profile footprint
– Available in right and left side

MSRP: $94.99
