Cloud Defensive Announces Rail-mounted Environmental Illuminator

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Cloud Defensive is proud to announce the arrival of its newest line of weapon-mounted lights. The Rail-mounted Environmental Illuminator (REIN) represents the redefinition of a modular carbine/long-gun weapon mounted light. A completely proprietary system, made in-house, in the USA, it’s loaded with performance and features. REIN is now the most dominant light on the market.

Configurations

Every REIN unit ships with the light, a Nitecore charger, a battery and a Picatinny mount for the light itself. Cloud Defensive is also making a full-line of light mounts for the MLOK interface. The chosen configuration dictates any additional package contents.

REIN will be available in two different system configurations. All configurations will be available in anodized Black and anodized Flat Dark Earth.

1) The Basic Kit: A Push-button-only configuration for those who do not want remote switching option. This is also the lowest cost configuration and the most simplistic.

2) The Complete Kit: Includes a remote switch featuring both momentary and constant-on activation. Standard on all Complete Kits is an integral push-button feature in the tail-cap, which allows for both momentary and constant-on operation that is electrically isolated from the remote switch.

This gives operational redundancy in the system, should the remote switch become non-functional. So each Complete kit has momentary/constant capability both on the remote, and on the tail-cap. Housing the remote switch is an included 3rd generation Light Control System with integrated cable control. The remote switch terminates inside the actual tail-cap of the light via a 90 degree cable connection leaving zero exposed wire out the back of the light.

Size Options

Two REIN lights exist so the end-user can select the size most appropriate for their needs. Offering virtually identical power output, the difference in run-time simply comes with battery size. The full-size REIN has better run-time numbers than the Micro. That is the only notable difference between the two.

1) The standard REIN, which accepts any standard rechargeable 18650 battery (protected or unprotected).

2) REIN Micro, which accepts any standard rechargeable 18350 battery

Innovative Features

Every REIN utilizes Patent-Pending technology that hardens the system and delivers the features that end-users require. The result is the next-generation

1) The Battery Jack.

Traditionally, batteries are held in place by a spring or piston at each end of the battery. However that is a liability as battery lengths vary and battery movement can be devastating to a system under recoil. Cloud Defensive created the Battery Jack to solve this problem. A simple yet robust adjustable device inside the light body allows the user to quickly lock the battery into place, creating tension and sandwiching the battery between the head of the light and the back of the light body. This locks the battery in space and ensures it does not move under any recoil, unlike all the competitors. The Battery Jack also give REIN the ability to run on any 18650 (full size) or 18350 (Micro). Including all the USB-charged 18650/18350 batteries.

2) The Tail-Cap Cartridge and Serviceable Tail-Cap Assembly.

All previous remote-switching options on the market shared 2 liabilities:

First, specialized tail-caps are required (adds cost/complexity) and secondly, external plugs/sockets create big liabilities for system life, electrical efficiency and water ingress. REIN solves this with its removable tail-cap Cartridge. Integral to the remote switch/cable assembly itself, the Cartridge i houses the entire rear electrical system of the light and is completely over-molded for complete and total waterproofing. It features two tabs, visible on the tail-cap itself, that allow the user to simply remove it by pulling on it. This makes the REIN tail-cap fully configurable and serviceable. In approximately 10 seconds, the user can easily convert the light from push-button-only to remote-switch or vice versa.

3) Remote Switch.

Modern weapon mounted lights are more powerful than ever. This requires updated switch design. Cloud Defensive is the first company to address this need. With a completely innovative and powerful switching system, the REIN has an electrical system that is optimized for high power output and long

service life. That includes extensive use of both gold and silver plating. And like the rest of the light, it is all made in-house.

Additionally, the cable itself terminates in the Cartridge and is aligned with the mounting feet of the light body. This ensures the cable not only exists the tail cap at 90 degrees but that it does so between the light body and the rail of the weapon. The result is zero exposed cable.

4) Field-Serviceable Lens.

The REIN features a field-serviceable lens housed inside a removable S7-Tool Steel bezel ring that is heat-treated to 55 Rockwell. With 3mm low-iron glass and the protection of the tool steel, the head of the REIN is effectively an impact tool that can be easily serviced (glass replacement) by the end user should the need arise.

5) Mounting Options.

Every REIN ships with a Picatinny Rail Mount. Additionally, Cloud Defensive is manufacturing a line of MLOK mounts for the REIN series that offer more strength than previously available. And the REIN can be retrofit to other manufactures scout-style mounts as well.

Performance

REIN has electrical efficiency that dominates the weapon light landscape. Much of the development effort centered around this.

– Candela: 59,000+ (Pending official confirmation)

– Lumens: 1300-1400 (Pending official confirmation)

– Run-Time: 90-130 minutes (Pending confirmation)

– Light Temperature: 4000k. This is a warmer light that defeats photonic barriers and allows the human eye to better identify colors on the target at night.

– IPX8 Waterproof rating. Fully submersible to at least 100 feet for 24 hours. Durability. Impact-proof and virtually indestructible.

– Lifetime warranty (see website for details)

Cost

REIN will be priced very competitively and at a lower price than it’s only competitor. REIN Basic Kit will cost approximately 260 dollars at retail. REIN Complete Kit will cost approximately 310-20 dollars at retail.

Availability

REIN is scheduled to ship in late April 2020. Cloud Defensive hopes to beat that timeline. For more information, go to www.clouddefensive.com

Shadow Systems Releases New Compact Multi-Role MR920 9mm Pistol

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Plano, TX (January, 2020) – American-based pistol manufacturer Shadow Systems will release a new compact-sized production pistol, the MR920, at this year’s SHOT Show.

Following the overwhelming success of the MR918, launched in January 2019, Shadow Systems has decided to iterate faster than the competition and launch new improvements now. Like the previous product line, the MR920 is a multi-role, compact-sized 9mm polymer pistol, which is designed to be used for daily carry, duty carry, home defense, competitive shooting, and everything in between.

Shadow’s MR918 has been referred to in the press as “the flattest shooting pistol on the market.” The MR920 frame builds upon that reputation with further improved ergonomics and unprecented recoil control. The MR920 is designed to sit ultra low in the hand, with a slide-bite-eliminating beavertail and innovative ergonomic contouring. A recoil control ledge has been added to the side of the frame giving the support thumb a greater role in controlling muzzle flip. The MR920 frame also features Shadow System’s interchangeable NPOA (Natural Point of Aim) backstrap system, which allows shooters to adjust the way the muzzle points. This allows the MR920 to mimick a 1911, a customized Glock, or something in between. Building on the MR918’ reputation for holster compatibility, the MR920’s trigger guard allows widespread holster fit with nearly every brand of holster designed for the G19.

The biggest news in this release is Shadow’s new patent pending optic cut. By redesigning internal slide components, Shadow effectively relocated portions of the operating system allowing three key attributes:

• The strongest, deepest screw placement in the industry
• Direct mounting of several brands without intervening adapter plates
• Extremely low optic placement permitting most optics to cowitness with typical iron sights

No past designs have combined all three of these game-changing attributes. Shadow’s design accommodates Trijicon RMR and SRO, Holosun 507c and 508t, Leupold Deltapoint Pro, Vortex Viper, and TruGlo Tru-Tec. Shadow Systems’ new optic cut will likely accommodate additional brands and optics; testing for optic compatibility is still ongoing. The new system provides versatility without compromise and even exceeds the strength of past Shadow Systems mounts that had a dedicated Trijicon RMR footprint machined into the slide.

Coming from various duty backgrounds in law enforcemrnt and military service, the team at Shadow Systems is serious about creating bet-your-life-reliable firearms designed for difficult, imperfect circumstances. With this in mind, the slide stop lever and protective curtain have been redesigned to further prevent inadvertent engagement with an extremely high firing grip. The magazine release button now features a higher traction surface. The trigger for the MR920 has been redesigned with a smoother and slightly lighter trigger pull while keeping all safeties intact.

As with the previous product line, the MR920 will be released in two different models: the Combat and the Elite.  These twomodels are differentiated by their slide designs.. The Combat is Shadow Systems’ entry level model featuring directional slide serrations on the front and rear. The Elite model features additional slide machining that adds directional serrations to the top of the slide and a weight-optimizing window cut which reduces slide mass supporting rapid shot-to-shot recovery. Both Combat and Elite slides have been reprofiled at the muzzle to be thinner in key grasping areas. This also helps safely re-holster in a silightly-collapsed IWB holster.. Shadow re-contoured the rear of the slide to alleviate the complaint that the back corners are “digging in” during IWB carry.  Both models are available with dovetail sights or withShadow’s new Patent Pending Optic Cut optic cut.  The front sight features a high visibility green ring and green tritium lamp to draw your focus both day and night.  Sight heights are optimized to co-witness properly with the majority of red dot sights.

“A lot of big companies make you wait 5 or 10 years before they incorporate customer feedback and improve designs.  The MR918 is a great pistol that almost everyone loves, but there were a few scattered voices in the market asking for some tweaks.  So we decided to listen instead of push back and ignore it.  Now we have a gun that truly answers all the questions and works well for basically everyone—even those with a different optic, a higher firing grip, massive hands, or an odd brand holster.”  – Trevor Roe, CEO

The MR920 will be released to the public at SHOT Show, on January 20th, 2020. Combat and Elite models will be immediately available for pre-order and the first MR920 pistols will begin shipping in February 2020. Pricing for the MR920 will begin at $799.

SOTECH Launches New Products at SHOT Show 2020

Monday, January 20th, 2020

For the 2020 SHOT Show, SOTECH announces they will display their new Tactical Evacuation Pack, the Cobra Medical Aid Bag system, a ropes evacuation system, and the Tactical Modular Medical Carriage System, along with systems we are partnering on including the Tactical Leg Restraint, the Phone Flipper retention device, the Lightweight Tactical Ingress/Egress Kit, and the AUFire wound simulation training system.  And of course, SOTECH will have the Challenge Bears and will be accepting donations for the Vets Corps USA work skills training program.

The Tactical Evacuation Pack is based on our old Expanding SERE pack but redesigned to mount to a vest or large pack as a pouch that unzips into a pack.  We worked  with Army SOF to create a bag to accept a wounded soldier’s full helmet, plate carrier and belt system as a patient effects bag.  As an evidence collection bag or a SERE foraging bag, there is ample room for the load. Its unique configuration allows it to be worn as a pack, expanded while still attached to a plate carrier, or as an expansion module when mounted on top of a large ruck.

The Cobra Medical Aid Bag System is a super-comfortable long-range carry aid bag that opens into an aid station fully integrating into the Tactical Modular Medical Carriage System that was recently NSNed. We have a regular rifleman’s variant and are working on an EOD package already.  Detailed announcements will be coming soon. Along with the Cobra, we are displaying the Lightweight Tactical Ingress/Egress Kit.  SOTechTactical.com

Everyone has been startled while focused on their phone. The Phone Flipper is a retention device for action-oriented people. The loop allows you to both retain your phone while using it and to flip it to the back-hand position for you to go hands on with a tool or a handle.  While not designed for use with a weapon, it can keep a phone handy for a quick call to 911, or just out of the way until you have the opportunity to pocket it.

And the Phone Flipper comes with a version to hold your government ID and credit card to keep the vitals in one place. www.phoneflipper.com available at SOTechTactical.com

Accuracy Under Fire is a gunshot wound simulator generated by electrical muscle stimulation which randomly incapacitated limbs during live tactical training. It is controlled by an instructor with remote device.  www.clearadvancement.com
