New Irish Defence Forces Camouflage Pattern Developed by Crye Precision

Monday, November 27th, 2023

Although the pattern has been kept under wraps, photos have recently been made public of the new Defence Forces camouflage pattern which will soon replace the four-color DPM, in service since 2000. Although called Disruptive Pattern Material, like the old British national pattern, the two patterns don’t resemble one another.

In Irish, the Defence Forces are referred to officially as Óglaigh na hÉireann and consist of the Army, Air Corps and Naval Service, along with reserve forces.

Developed by Crye Precision, this new national pattern owes some obvious design cues and color palette from MultiCam. However, there is a very distinctive element in the Irish Transitional MultiCam Pattern. You’ll notice two stylized versions of the letter “F” which stand for Fianna Fáil (not the political party).

In addition to ITMP, Irish troops will also be receiving a completely new clothing ensemble called the DF Combat Clothing System. Cost estimates for the new gear are at upwards of €40 million which is still under development and will feature versions in both male and female sizing.

Griffin Armament Announces NEW Optics Lineup

Monday, November 20th, 2023

Watertown WI, Nov. 16th, 2023 –  

For 18 years, Griffin Armament has aimed to provide our customers with the highest quality silencers, rifles, parts, and accessories at affordable prices for the majority of gun owners. With the release of the first two products in their new optics lineup, Griffin is meeting this objective by bringing quality, duty-ready optics to consumers at extremely competitive prices.

Developed, and tested by former army snipers in Watertown, WI, the Griffin lineup of optics currently has two offerings, with more coming soon: the 1-8x ICO™/MIL FFP LPVO and the Griffin Micro Sight™ Red Dot.


The Griffin 1-8x Ideal Carbine Optic™ (ICO™)/MIL LPVO provides users with a practical, advanced target engagement optic for use in all light conditions, at a variety of ranges, at a competitive price point. This optic features Griffin’s proprietary Ideal Carbine Optic™ MIL/BDC reticle that allows ranging of 19” targets out to 700m. Windage and bullet drop compensation marks allow accurate shot placement for a variety of common centerfire cartridges, including 5.56mm, 7.62x51mm, and 6.5 Creedmoor. The Griffin 1-8x ICO™ LPVO is a first focal plane optic that utilizes 1/10th MIL adjustment increments for precise optical adjustments and has 11 brightness settings for use in low light conditions.

Griffin Micro Sight™

The Griffin Micro Sight™ (GMS™) leads the compact lineup by supplying 50,000 hours of battery life, 1 MOA adjustments, 10 brightness settings, and 90MOA elevation & windage adjustments. The GMS™ comes equipped with a clear, non-distorted sight picture for an ideal viewing experience, parallax-free @25yds. Additional features include IPX7 water resistance, a 3MOA dot size in red or green illumination, and auto-off/shake-to-wake functionality. These sights are ideal for use on short-range carbines, handguns, and as backups for magnified optics enabling rapid transition to close-range targets, and improved ability to rapidly acquire distant targets at higher levels of magnification.

“Filling a void in the LPVO category for a functional rapid engagement reticle in an FFP optic, is what brought Griffin into optics. Having used a variety of optics in combat environments, I sought to deliver practicality, features, and value.  The goal of this optics lineup was to incorporate custom reticles with increased functionality into popular product segments that have a lot of versatility.  Optical technology has progressed significantly in the past decade, so the timing is right for us to deliver. I’m excited to put our real world experience into the development of the Griffin optics line into the future.  Look for more from us on this, we are excited to offer 18 years of brand equity and great customer service behind this optic program.”

– Austin, Product Development Manager, Griffin Armament
