Blackhawk Adds New T-Series L2C Holster for SIG P320 TLR 7/8

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

Light Bearing Level 2 Compact Holster Now Offered for SIG P320 Pistol with TLR 7/8 Light.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – June 4, 2020 – Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military products for over 20 years, announced today that it has expanded its popular line of T-Series holsters with the introduction of a light bearing Level 2 Compact (L2C) version engineered specifically for the SIG SAUER P320 pistol with TLR 7/8 light.

As with other L2C holsters, the latest model retains key features designed to assist with concealed carry. Among these features include a new speed cut to assist with a faster draw, a low-profile design for ease of concealment and RMR-compatibility.

Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm. This efficient movement pairs with a sound-dampening, low-friction, dual-density internal material that translates into a smooth, quiet draw. Externally, the L2C holster features a proprietary, glass-reinforced nylon to ensure the highest degree of durability available in a duty rated holster.

All T-Series L2C holsters include an all-new attachment platform called the Quick Dual Release, or QDR. This attachment method features an intuitive dual button release that allows for easy attachment to and removal from a belt without weaving it through traditional belt loops. The QDR can easily accommodate belts ranging in size from 1.5 to 2.25 inches and allows the holster to be canted at various angles, depending on user preference.

All L2C holsters also come standard with a two-slot belt loop attachment for belt carry and the intuitive design provides the user the ability to cant the sidearm following the body’s contour.

For more information on the new L2C holster for the SIG SAUER P320 with TLR 7/8 light or to view the complete line of T-Series holsters be sure to visit www.blackhawk.com.

SilencerCo Now Shipping the Salvo in an 8” Configuration

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

West Valley City, UT – The Salvo was the first modular and hearing safe shotgun silencer on the market. The Salvo is now shipping in an 8” configuration. The Salvo is available in 8” and 12” offerings, allowing the end user to customize the Salvo for shooting sports, hunting and home defense.

The Salvo was designed with the various shotgun shooting applications in mind and the desire to reduce not just the sound, but the felt recoil as well. The modular design enables the shooter to add or remove sections to balance the length, weight and sound suppression. Most shotgun shooters utilize a bead or raised sights, the asymmetrical design places the baffle stack beneath the bore to avoid obstructing the shooter’s line of sight or causing the shooter to adjust or modify the sights. The Salvo traps and contains muzzle gas, reducing the felt recoil.

When introduced, this suppressor was offered in the 12” configuration with the ability to adjust the length down to 10”, 8” or 6”. The majority of Salvo shooters utilize the 8” configuration so we are now offering the 8” configuration at a lower price point.

This shotgun suppressor attaches via a choke mount to most commercially available 12-gauge shotguns with barrels threaded for choke systems. This suppressor is rated for wadded-2 3?4” shells in a 10” or longer barrel and wadded-3” shells in a 16” or longer barrel, including buckshot and slugs. The 8” configuration is hearing safe and noticeably reduces the felt recoil.

The user can adjust the length of the Salvo using rod kits.  Rod kits can be purchased to shorten the 12” to 10”, 8” or 6”, you can also shorten the 8” to 6”. 

This product comes with a breech plug and an Echo Spanner Wrench.  Choke mounts and rod kits are sold separately.   Choke mounts are available in improved cylinder, modified, improved modified and full.  The Salvo has an MSRP of $749.  For more information on this model click here.

Bushnell Elite Tactical XRS II Helps Capture Multiple Wins at K&M PRS Match

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

Bushnell Pro Mark Cooper Uses XRS II to Win Tactical Division and Place 2nd Overall

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – June 2, 2020 – Bushnell congratulates Pro Shooter Mark Cooper for adding a new footnote in the Precision Rifle Series history book by becoming the first person in recent history to win the Tactical Division and place 2nd Overall at a National PRS Match. Using his Elite Tactical XRS II, Cooper was able to take home multiple wins at the recent K&M Precision Rifle Series and AG Cup Qualifier in Finger, Tennessee.

After dropping only 8 points across 12 stages on day one, Cooper entered the final day of the match in 20th place. Despite exceeding his initial expectations, Cooper knew that an even stronger performance would be needed to claim a top spot on the podium. He remained confident that his riflescope and gear could help get the job done.

“It might sound simple, but I went into the last day with one goal in mind – don’t miss,” said Cooper. “Throughout the match my XRS II was performing great, giving me crystal-clear views and helping deliver precise shots across a wide variety of distances. I knew that if I could stay focused that I was in a good position to have a strong finish.”

At the end of Sunday, Cooper had dropped only 4 points, bringing his grand total to 12 for the match. Once the last stage was completed, Cooper’s entire squad erupted with excitement, realizing what they had just witnessed. Cooper had ended the match with two wins, and a mere one point away from 1st Place Overall.

“It’s still hard for me to believe that I was able to have such a strong finish,” said Cooper. “Having had big wins in the past using my Elite Tactical scope, I knew anything was possible. Running the XRS II certainly helps with the added confidence as it has exceptional tracking, great glass, and unbeatable durability. These are core features any shooter needs competing in the PRS.”

After a longer than normal return to competition, Cooper entered the K&M match having recorded his first win of the season at the Accuracy International Long Range Classic back in February. At the A.I. USA Pro Series Match, Cooper took home 1st place in the Tactical Division again using his Bushnell Elite Tactical riflescope.

Next up for Cooper is the Pigg River Precision Regional PRS Match in Rocky Mountain, Virginia on June 5th.

Lantac LA-SF15TM 6MM ARC Chambered Rifle & Dedicated E-BCG

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

Lantac is pleased to announce the release of its range of 6MM ARC chambered rifles and dedicated E-BCG®

For the past 2 years Lantac has been working closely with Hornady Manufacturing, undertaking testing and development of products that utilise the new 6MM ARC ammunition in a variety of bullet weights. Lantac was one of the first companies to become involved with this new caliber as part of a funded military research project and has conducted extensive evaluation and development work in that time.

Lantac’s new LA-SF15 6ARC 18’’ Rifle+1 gas system (pictured) delivers 2629 FPS at muzzle with 2457FPS at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 1408 FPS at 800M (874.89 Yards). Energy is 1657 Ft-lb (2246 Joules) at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 475 Ft-lb (644 Joules) at 800M (874.89 Yards) approx. Lantac has also developed a more compact 14.5’’ Intermediate gassed system that delivers 2483 FPS at muzzle with 2315 FPS at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 1302 FPS at 800M (874.89 Yards). Energy is 1285 Ft-lb (1742 Joules) at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 407 Ft-lb (551 Joules) at 800M (874.89 Yards) approx.

The velocity of multiple barrel lengths was tested to create a clear picture of 6ARC’s capabilities.

The Lantac LA-SF15™ 18’’ configuration comes as standard with the following specifications:

7075-T6 Alloy Forged Receiver Set, Hardcoat Anodized (Type3, Class2) to MIL-A-8625 standards.

SPADA-ML 15’’ Handguard

Proof research 18’’ Rifle+1 Carbon Fiber Barrel with 1:7.5 Twist and Target Crown.

Lantac dedicated 6ARC E-BCG®

Lantac DGN762B Dragon® Muzzle Brake (Suppressor mount options available).

Magpul MOE Grip and PRS Stock.

Magpul MBUS-Pro BUIS

Geissele G2S 4.5lb 2 Stage Trigger.

VLTOR A5 Buffer System.

17Rnd Elander Magazine. The ammunition will not function with current PMAG’s

The rifle is designed to offer the softest shooting experience and features a specially designed dedicated E-BCG® bolt carrier group that works with the Rifle+1 gas system and VLTOR’s A5 Buffer to deliver extremely low recoil energy, meaning that fast, repeated hits on long range targets are much easier to achieve.

Other barrel options are available for customers not wanting to use a carbon wrapped solution.

Lantac’s 6ARC E-BCG® has been specially developed to manage the gas impulse delivered from a variety of 6ARC bullet weights / powder loads that will eventually be available from Hornady (the 103Gr, 105Gr & 108Gr being the initial release), it will also function with 6.5 Grendel and is available in both Nitrided and NiB (Electroless Nickel Boron) finishes.

Lantacs E-BCG® has undergone extensive trials testing and out performs other carriers with improved gas management, reduced recoil and lug stress. A 5.56mm E-BCG® Carrier and Bolt have successfully fired over 65,000 rounds of ammunition with zero failures and the Bolt was still in complete working order after MPI and X-Ray Radiography inspection.

The E=BCG® Carrier vents gas in a completely different way to standard two and three port designs. As can be seen in these frames from hi-speed testing, both the 2 port and 3 port carriers produce a plume of potentially harmful propellant gas, by contrast the Lantac E-BCG® produces a significantly reduced plume.

Lantac undertook extensive recoil energy testing, utilising data loggers and load cells. Many carriers were tested and compared to assist in fine tuning the 6ARC E-BCG®.

Rifles are available to order now, prices vary depending on specification, please contact Lantac USA for further information.

Helikon- Tex Wants You to Take Responsibility for the Environment – #NoTrashNoTrace

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

The future is in your hands

Yeah, it’s easy to think about environmental problems as sort of global ones in which any effort made by a single person cannot make a difference, but in reality it’s quite contrary. Those single efforts combine and make a world of difference to keep Nature safe. That’s why Helikon-Tex encourages people to act responsibly, to take care of surroundings and to think beforehand about purchasing new gear.

Choose gear that’ll last years

First step to reduce the amount of stuff finishing its life on the landfill is to produce clothes and gear that’ll last. Durability is not only a marketing slogan – it’s a statement. Helikon-Tex is proud to be a producer to whom the customers regularly say that they have their pants, jackets or backpacks for 5, 6 or even 8 years, and they still work well. That’s the most natural way for a gear manufacturer to take care of Nature.

Fix when broken

It’ll have an enormous impact on the environment if we start to value fixing our stuff more than throwing it away. Some Helikon-Tex products already have their dedicated spare element to be used when someone wants to repair his or hers gear with ease.

That way we can not only save the Planet and some money but have a little fun as well. Some may even try their survival skills while fixing their gear.
