SOFIC 22 – Princeton-Tec

Tuesday, May 17th, 2022

Subsequent to the Gentex RAILINK announcement, Princeton-Tec has released their RAILINK Switch MPLS light which is designed to interface specifically with the RAILINK node, using parasitic power supplied by the RAILINK battery pack.

Because there are no batteries, it weighs just 13 grams and offers Red/IR LEDs with a simple switching system.

SOFIC 22 – CORE Survival

Designed specifically for use with the Gentex RAILINK the HEL-STAR Rail Strobe comes in pairs which are intended to be mounted at Node 2 on the RAILINK. This placement moves the strobe off of the top of the helmet, yet allows for full visibility of the strobe.

The HEL-STAR Rail Strobe offers dim and bright power visible light along with an IR function.

I spoke with Jamey Caldwell of 1MinuteOut and he pointed out several features. This overt/covert rail mounted marker offers weight reduction through the elimination of redundant batteries and increases mobility due to its low profile footprint. Jamey has been using this system for over a year and explained that the slick design makes it easier to maneuver in confined spaces.

Now Available – Paddle Shifter Kit for SureFire X300

Thursday, March 24th, 2022

Emissary Development’s Paddle Shifter Kit for SureFire X300 is now available for order. It gives you a more accessible paddle.

This drop-in kit is a direct replacement for the stock X300 switch and fits many SureFire X300-style lights as well as most holsters.

Emissary Development – X300 Paddle Shifter Installation Tool

Tuesday, March 8th, 2022

Emissary Development’s two-piece X300 Paddle Shifter installation tool was designed in-house and will be included with every X300 Paddle Shifter.

Since the paddle armature of the X300 is “spring loaded” and can be pushed forward we have designed a tool that braces and supports the armature in place. This makes it significantly easier to push your Paddle Shifter into place and fully seat it onto the armature.

The tool is designed to split in two after install to prevent it from impacting or moving the Paddle Shifter after it has been set in place.

They will also be including a 1/4” extraction tool bit that will make removing the stock switches a breeze.

They are still on course for a March release but can’t give out any concrete launch dates just yet.
