New FN 303 Mk2 Answers the Call for Today’s Law Enforcement Officers

Thursday, June 17th, 2021

IMPROVING THE GLOBAL STANDARD OF LESS LETHAL TECHNOLOGY
(McLean, VA – June 17, 2021) After setting the global standard in less lethal technology with the original FN 303 system, FN America, LLC, the world leader in developing law enforcement technology and training, is pleased to announce the release of the FN 303® Mk2 Less Lethal Launcher. FN answered requests from law enforcement officers and agencies to make key improvements to service life and accuracy.

“From the first release of the FN 303 Less Lethal launcher in the early 2000s to the release of the Mk 2 variant today, FN has been at the forefront of the ever-changing landscape of policing, developing innovative solutions for officers and agencies,” said Charles “Bucky” Mills, Sr. Director, Law Enforcement and Federal Sales for FN America, LLC. “Updates in the FN 303 Mk2 include fully adjustable sights for ease of zeroing, and upgrades to the air operating system that double the service life of the launcher and reduce required maintenance.”

Built from lightweight, rugged polymer and driven by a compressed CO2 air tank, the FN 303 Mk2 upgrades FN’s less lethal technology for today’s officers, delivering pin-point accuracy out to 50-plus yards with new, adjustable flip up metal sights and a MIL-STD 1913 top rail for optical or red dot sights. The optimized operating system doubles the service life of the FN 303 Mk2, now allowing 5,000 projectiles to be fired before first routine maintenance is required thus reducing department armorer maintenance requirements.

The fin-stabilized, .68-caliber FN 303 projectiles deliver optimum accuracy with maximum effectiveness and safety. Officers can quickly change projectiles from inert, marking impact  or irritant projectiles. The clear rear magazine cover allows officers to verify the projectile type and remaining projectile count in the magazine.

CBP Purchases B&T USA GLO6 Less Lethal Launcher Systems

Monday, June 7th, 2021

US Customs and Border Protection, part of the US Department of Homeland Security is purchasing 150 B&T USA GL06 Less-Lethal Launchers. This is the latest B&T USA procurement by CBP, who has purchased a sizable number of APC9K-G submachine guns by leveraging the US Army Sub Compact Weapon contract. The vehicle contract was modified earlier this year to allow other agencies to purchase from it and to supply Glock and SIG compatible lower receiver groups.

The GL06 is a shoulder-fired less lethal system capable of firing a complete range of lethal and less-lethal 40x46mm munitions and impact rounds through its fully rifled bore — delivering unmatched accuracy at standoff distances out to, and beyond, 40 meters. The GL06 is claimed to be lighter and more compact than other stand-alone platforms of the same class, yet is capable of greater accuracy, has superior ergonomics and offers a greater flexibility in munition selection to include the company’s own SIR and SIR-X (Safe Impact Rounds).

CBP GL06s will be delivered as configured from B&T USA, fitted with Aimpoint Micro TL optics, as well as their quick-detach optic mounts and vertical forward grips.

Revision Announces New Collection of Eyewear Products to Benefit Military & Law Enforcement Charities

Tuesday, March 30th, 2021

ESSEX JUNCTION, VERMONT (March 29, 2021) – Revision Military is proud to announce The Honor Collection™, a new category of products where 20% of the proceeds from each purchase is donated directly to a select military or law enforcement charity.

The first offering of The Honor Collection is a special law enforcement edition StingerHawk® spectacle, featuring a unique, blue line-branded frame and corresponding microfiber storage pouch. Proceeds will benefit Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing resources to help the families and co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty, while also offering training and assistance to law enforcement agencies nationwide on responding to the tragic loss of a member of the law enforcement profession.

Revision has selected Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) as the beneficiary of the first Honor Collection™ product offering. 20% of all proceeds of Revision StingerHawk® LE Edition products will be donated directly to C.O.P.S.

“We believe in the critical importance of giving back,” said Revision CEO, Amy S. Coyne, “especially to organizations that directly benefit men and women in uniform and their families. I’m thrilled to announce our new Honor Collection of products, and our support of the law enforcement community with our first release benefiting C.O.P.S. There are so many great organizations supporting law enforcement, but we were drawn to C.O.P.S. by its mission, professionalism and the great impact they have on their community.”

“It’s been a rough year for our country, especially on our law enforcement heroes,” said C.O.P.S. Executive Director, Dianne Bernhard. “In addition to line-of-duty deaths, we’ve seen far too many officers impacted by COVID-19, which more than doubled the amount of survivors C.O.P.S. has added to our membership in 2020 and 2021. With the support of Revision’s Honor Collection, C.O.P.S. is able to continue planning our healing programs, conferences, and trainings at no cost to the survivor or attendee. The price they have paid is already much too high.”

In response to the recent urgent demand for laser protection, Revision has successfully delivered thousands of ballistic laser protective lenses to law enforcement around the United States. After an initial rapid delivery to the Department of Homeland Security, Revision received a dramatic increase of inquiries from Federal, State, and Local departments, and Individual Officers seeking protection from this emerging threat. Since last summer, reported incidents of laser attacks on law enforcement have skyrocketed around the nation leading to a variety of eye effects and injuries, including reports of partial blindness. While handheld lasers aren’t new, their widespread use with intent to harm is increasing, just as the demand for laser protective eyewear to prevent effects and injuries.

Revision’s StingerHawk® Law Enforcement Edition kits offer blue-line branded frame, adjustable nosepiece, choice of clear, smoke or FT-2 laser protective lens and branded microfiber pouch. All products exceed military-spec ballistic standards, offer world-class OcuMax® anti-fog performance, and optional integrated prescription correction solution.

The Honor Collection is available exclusively on the Revision website, and StingerHawk LE Edition kits are priced with special introductory offer of 30% off MSRP. LE Edition kits include a StingerHawk blue line-branded frame, an adjustable nosepiece, choice of clear, smoke or FT-2 laser protective lens and an blue line-branded microfiber pouch. All products exceed military-spec ballistic standards, offer world-class OcuMax® anti-fog performance, and an optional integrated prescription correction solution.
