Introducing the NEW Strike Eagle 5-25×56 FFP Riflescope from Vortex

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

THE STRIKE EAGLE® 5-25×56 FFP

PREPARE FOR IMMEDIATE IMPACT
BARNEVELD, Wis. Vortex® Optics is going long, expanding on the value and reliability of their Strike Eagle® line of optics with the Strike Eagle® 5-25×56 FFP. Tactically-minded, long-range shooters can expect an incredible number of long-range tools in an incredibly affordable package.

The First Focal Plane reticle ensures accurate holdovers and ranging throughout the magnification range. Shooters will get to enjoy all that magnification even more thanks to the XD optical system, which makes for crystal-clear, edge-to-edge sharpness and high contrast images, and XR™ lens coatings for superior light transmission and optimized, low-light performance. And, to guarantee a clear point of aim no matter the lighting conditions, the glass-etched EBR-7C reticle is illuminated.

When shooters are ready to start dialing for deeper shots, exposed, tactical locking turrets keep adjustments safe with integrated locking mechanisms. Not only that, the aircraft-grade, 34mm aluminum tube provides 110 MOA/31MRAD of travel, giving shooters plenty of space to stretch out.
 
And, if they need it, shooters can get from dealing close-close quarters punishment to long-range precision rapidly with the included throw lever. After all that dialing, if a shooter needs a fast, reliable return to zero, the patented RevStop® Zero System provides a fast, simple, rock-solid return.
For the shooter looking to step up their long-range game, and for those serving in the line of fire, the Strike Eagle® 5-25×56 FFP means immediate impact.

MSRP:
$799.99 – Strike Eagle® 5-25×56 (MOA) 

$799.99 – Strike Eagle® 5-25×56 (MRAD)

XS Sights Now Offering RAM Night Sights for Canik and Taurus Pistols

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

Fort Worth, TX (April 8, 2020) – XS® Sights has expanded its high-performance 3-Dot RAM™ Night Sight line to include the Canik® TP9SF series and Taurus® G2 pistols.

The RAM (radioactive material) night sights offer the brightest 3-dot sight option for fast and accurate shooting in bright and low light.  Featuring a traditional 3-dot tritium, notch and post sight picture, the rear sight of the RAM is blacked out to increase contrast against the front sight which is available in bright orange or green.  The front sight features XS’s proprietary Ember® Glow Dot technology which absorbs ambient light and glows in low light.  The front tritium lamp in the RAM sight charges the Ember Glow Dot, making the front sight glow brighter than the rear, keeping your focus down range.

Fine-tuned for Law Enforcement use, RAM sights are purpose driven tools that ensure front sight visibility in any light.

Other key features include a rear sight overhang that reduces glare in bright light for greater sight definition.  The anti-reflective rear tritium lenses also reduce glare in daylight while increasing contrast against the front sight.  RAM sights also have a rear sight ledge to aid in one-handed slide manipulations. 

The orange front sight contrasts best in bright light and the green glows best in low light; however, people see color differently and eye-sight issues can affect which color performs best for each individual.

RAM Night Sights were designed to overcome three common issues with 3-dot tritium sights:

1 Confusing the front dot with one of the rear sight dots when under stress

–   The brightly colored Ember Glow Dot in the RAM front sight is a much larger and brighter which differentiates the front dot from the two rear dots.

2 The 2-dot tritium rear sight glowing brighter than the front sight drawing the eyes there instead of towards the downrange threat.

• The Ember front sight is significantly brighter than the rear tritium lamps.

3 Tight sight pictures

• RAM Night Sights use a notch that is 15% wider than the front sight, allowing more visible light around the front sight.  This makes it easier to see the front sight in changing light conditions and when shooting on the move, aiding in sight alignment and increasing accuracy.

RAM Night Sights are CNC machined from bar-stock steel and treated with a hardening and rust-preventative coating making them extremely durable and reliable additions to your firearm. Front blade width is 0.145” (3.68 mm) and the notch width is 0.170” (4.32 mm). While height varies by model, all models fit standard holster options. Designed for simple installation by hand or with a sight pusher tool. All XS sights are backed by a 10-year, No-Questions-Asked Warranty and supported with our world-class customer service.

Retail Price: $100 to $120 depending on the model

Leupold’s Mark 5HD 3.6-18×44 Riflescope Chosen for Army’s M110 Rifle

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear riflescopes and reflex sights, is pleased to announce that its award-winning Mark 5HD riflescope has been selected for use with the United States Army’s M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System. Like all of Leupold’s riflescopes, the Mark 5HD is designed, machined, and assembled in the company’s Beaverton, Ore. factory.

The Mark 5HD that’s being built for the M110 will come in a proprietary flat dark earth coating and utilize the Army’s patented Mil-Grid Reticle. It will include a Leupold Mark IMS mount. The 3.6-18 is the second Mark 5HD model to be selected for use by the U.S. Army this year. The 5-25×56, featuring the same FDE coating and reticle, was selected by the Army Precision Sniper Rifle Program last month.

“The men and women of the U.S. armed forces require and deserve the very best, and when it comes to riflescopes, that’s the Mark 5HD,” said Bruce Pettet, President and Chief Executive Officer for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Our optics face strenuous durability testing, and fully meet the extremely high performance standards that the military demands.”

The Mark 5HD has been crafted to redefine accuracy, precision, and optical performance for long-range shooters. Three models – a 7-35×56, 5-25×56, and 3.6-18×44 – are available in both milliradian and MOA configurations. Pick one up and you’ll feel the difference: it’s up to 20 ounces lighter than other scopes in its class. Get behind one and you’ll see the difference, from its superior edge-to-edge clarity to its extreme low-light performance. With three revolutions of elevation adjustment, the Mark 5HD was made to max out the performance of the latest long-range rifles and ammunition.

“The Mark 5 was designed in partnership with elite shooters to create a product that has the quality and features required to get rounds on target faster,” said Sam Horstman, Director of Military Sales for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The end result is precisely the caliber of riflescope we’d want our troops to have in the field.”

Leupold proudly provides its optics to the United States military, law enforcement, and government agencies across the country, and to the armed forces of many of our nation’s closest allies.

Waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life, the Mark 5HD is backed by the company’s legendary Lifetime Guarantee.

SIG SAUER Introduces Subsonic 300BLK Tipped Hunting Ammunition

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

NEWINGTON, N.H., (April 8, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to add a 205gr subsonic 300BLK load to its Tipped Hunting line of ammunition.

The new subsonic 300BLK ammunition features a yellow-tipped, 205gr lead-core bullet designed for explosive expansion and exceptional accuracy.  This load uses the same high-quality, single-base extruded powders as SIG Match Grade rounds, ensuring consistent muzzle velocity and insensitivity to temperature change.

Optimized for the AR-15 platform, the new subsonic 300BLK Tipped Hunting ammunition is engineered to allow hunters to load 30 rounds in a 30-round magazine and have the cartridges feed properly.  This was achieved by SIG SAUER engineers after extensive research and development resulting in a stepped-down bullet design with a shouldered ogive that keeps the bullet from hitting the ridges of the magazine which would cause the rounds to shift and eventually fail to feed. 

This load is ideal for use with a suppressor, which greatly reduces sound signature and muzzle flash, making it a favorite among hunters.  Muzzle velocity is 1000 fps and muzzle energy is 455 ft-lbs from a 16-inch barrel.  This round is recommended for use in barrels 9-inches or longer.

“300BLK continues to be a popular caliber and, in addition to several Match Grade rounds, SIG SAUER now offers two hunting loads – the subsonic 205gr Tipped Hunting and 120gr supersonic Elite Copper Hunting ammunition,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. 

The new SIG SAUER 205gr subsonic 300BLK Tipped Hunting load is now available for purchase at the sigsauer.com/store.

All SIG SAUER Elite Ammunition is manufactured by SIG SAUER at its state-of-the-art ammunition manufacturing facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles.  For more information, visit sigsauer.com/ammunition.

Flying Cross Offers Largest In-Stock Inventory of Uniform Garments for Public Safety

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

COVID-19 outbreak causes agencies across the nation to reconsider uniform needs Cincinnati, Ohio – Flying Cross, a leader in the design and manufacturer of public safety apparel and gear, announced today an overwhelming support from the law enforcement community to help identify uniform solutions that are readily available to service and ship during this recent Coronavirus outbreak. Many public safety uniform needs have changed as officers have had to shift roles to fill department requirements, as well as change personal hygiene and uniform care habits to protect themselves in the field.

“This is a critical time for all of our frontline first responders working in our communities during this Coronavirus outbreak,” said Tom Rose, GM of Public Safety, Fechheimer Brothers Company. “Their care and safety is, and has always been, our number one concern, in conjunction with their local dealers servicing their uniform needs. We are fortunate to have the industry’s largest in-stock inventory to be able to step up in a big way to help identify the products our customers need – and need right now.”

Flying Cross carries more than $38 million of product inventory and uniform solutions for law enforcement, fire and EMS, mass transportation, the U.S. postal, and many other adjacent industries. Because they stock many uniform programs both wide and deep, many agencies have reached out directly and through their distributors for help with current and immediate uniform needs.

“Many of the first responder roles are considered “essential” amidst state issued stay-at-home orders,” said Rose. “Roles that previously did not operate in the field on a daily basis now require daily duty uniforms to help fill gaps for the department. All of these roles have a greater risk of exposure on a day-to-day basis.”

Cleaning methods and frequency have also added to the need for uniform solutions. Many departments are choosing to purchase uniforms that provide the clean, crisp appearance expected by the community, but with easier maintenance and long term durability such as Cross FX and Cross FX Elite. Despite the uniform program, the vast exposure of COVID-19 to officers in the field has generated new habits. Possible exposures have led to officers changing their uniform garments more frequently throughout the day. Uniform garments that once were acceptable to clean once a week now may need to be cleaned daily to minimize the spread of any possible contamination on clothes. When it comes to possibly contaminated clothes, the CDC has recommended using gloves to handle the garments and washing them right away. Garments should be cleaned based on the uniform fabric.

With travel limited in many states, and many organizations choosing not to receive visitors, Flying Cross has converted its sales team and extended customer service to help field customer questions and inquiries.

To inquire about uniform needs for your agency or department call 1-800-543-1939, or visit flyingcross.com/ready-to-serve.
