AUSA 19 – LMD Pistol Enhancer For Glock

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

LaserMaxDefense manufactures the Pistol Aiming Laser (PAiL) for the US Army’s Modular Handgun System.

The switches are designed to be operated while wearing gloves and both the white light and IR illuminator (while using gen III Night Vision Devices) are designed to provide positive weapons ID at 40m.

Capabilities:

WHITE LIGHT: 175 lumens (typical) of white light
IR ILLUMINATOR: 175 mW (typical) of 850nm illumination
IR LASER: 850nm 0.7 mW max (class1) eye safe aiming laser

Length: < 2.8″
Height: < 1.4″ (not below trigger guard)
Width: < 1.5″
Weight: 2.6 ounces with battery

The Pistol Enhancer offers two hours of continuous use with a single CR-123 battery, which can be changed without removing the device from the weapon.

LMD took a look at the market and decided to create a version for use with the Glock. Because the trigger guard of the MHS is so large, they had to make a new version, with a different housing. Functionality of this prototype is the same as the original model, but experimentation has shown that it will fit a wider variety of pistols.

CAA USA Confirms Exclusive Licensing Agreement with SB Tactical

Wednesday, October 9th, 2019

CAA USA, designer and developer of the MCK conversion kit for popular handguns, confirms that it has an exclusive licensing agreement with SB Tactical®, the originators of the Pistol Stabilizing Brace® for use on the MCK and Micro Roni.

Pompano Beach (October 2019) – CAA USA, designers and developers of the MCK/Micro Conversion Kit, confirmed that since May 2019, it has a licensing agreement with SB Tactical®, the originators of the patented Pistol Stabilizing Brace®, for exclusive use on CAA USA products.

“CAA USA is very excited about this exclusive agreement with SB Tactical,” LTC. (Ret.) Mikey Hartman, CEO of CAA USA, commented. “Both CAA USA and SB Tactical are committed to developing superior products that meet the demands of our customer base and ensuring quality and integrity above all.”

The agreement specifies that only CAA USA MCK/Micro Conversion Kits have the right to utilize the intellectual property associated with the Pistol Stabilizing Brace. Any similar products not produced by CAA USA but sold under the CAA Israel name violate the SB-Tactical contracts and are not sanctioned by either company.

Alex Bosco, founder and owner of SB Tactical said in a statement, “We would like to inform our US distributors and dealers that CAA USA is the only manufacturer of MCK, Micro Roni and Roni Stabilizers authorized to produce handgun conversion kits with the SB Tactical patented Stabilizing Brace® technology. We respectfully request that any purported, counterfeit and/or unauthorized use of Stabilizing Braces in handgun conversion kits manufactured, sold or marketed by other companies be reported to SB Tactical. Please notify SB Tactical of any Micro Roni or Roni Stabilizers coming from companies like YRS Inc., CAA Industries (Israel) and Jay Technology, as they are unauthorized sellers of this product.”

Hartman added, “We at CAA USA have cut all ties with CAA Israel because of unauthorized actions of one of its minority shareholders, who began infringing on the SB Tactical patent, as well as violating the MAP prices on the Micro Roni, by selling through an Israeli internet company called YRS. Given these unlawful actions, we had no choice but to design and manufacture our own 100% made in the USA conversion kit called the MCK. In addition, we have taken legal action to stop CAA Israel’s minority shareholder from making false and defamatory statements about the safety of our MCK”. In legal filings, CAA USA has also established that CAA Israel has been facing financial difficulties, further contributing to the need for separation of the two companies.

The CAA USA MCK is the next-generation Micro conversion kit, 100% American-made, easy to assemble, and compatible with the most popular handguns including GLOCK, SIG Sauer and Smith & Wesson. The MCK GLOCK model can accommodate 12 different GLOCK pistol models, allowing the end user more options at a lower cost.

For assembly, simply place the pistol in the CAA USA MCK/Micro Conversion Kit, lock it in and go! There is no pistol disassembly required. The exposed side release allows for direct contact and is easier to use. The MCK is ambidextrous and the right-folding stock arm brace allows for concealment and carry and locks in the folded position. Lots of options for adding accessories and optics with a top Picatinny rail and side Picatinny rails. A spare magazine holder is located in the front for faster reloads and the ergonomic finger groove grip provides the user more stability.

The CAA USA MCK is a vast improvement from previous generations of the Micro Roni Stabilizer. CAA USA is introducing a new patent-pending, revolutionary forward-grip that allows for incredible stability with one-of-a-kind ergonomics. The MCK also provides a new spare magazine holder option that was not available in the older stabilizer versions. CAA USA also now offers models that were not available in the previous conversion kits such as the GLOCK 20/21, the SIG Sauer P320 full-size and compact, the S&W M&P Gen 1 full-size and compact, the M&P 2.0 full-size and compact, and CAA USA will introduce a new Springfield model as well the new Gen 2 MCK in the fourth quarter of 2019. CAA USA will unveil the new products at the 2019 NASGW Expo in Orlando, Florida on Oct. 22 – 25th at booth 1719.

The CAA USA MCK MSRP starts at $249.00 at CAA USA online.

TNVC New Product TAPS SYNC and TAPS Standard In-Stock

Wednesday, October 9th, 2019

Tactical Night Vision Company, Redlands, CA –

TNVC and Unity Tactical are very happy to announce the launch of TAPS SYNC, as well as the newly upgraded TAPS Standard! TAPS Standard now in-stock and available for order! TAPS SYNC is currently in stock and shipping to dealers.  

For years the industry has struggled with standard pressure switches functionality and modularity. The TAPS and TAPS SYNC have changed the way end-users think of remote device switches. Previously, end-users had to struggle to attach and maintain delicate and finicky pressure switches to their weapons that were poorly designed to be attached to the weapon where the user needed them to activate their devices. The original TAPS broke through these long standing barriers with a user-centric paradigm shift to create a modular and ergonomic remote switch system; a complete one point command and control system for all weapon-mounted force multipliers such as white lights and IR aiming lasers and illuminators.

The TAPS SYNC has added new functionality to the TAPS design, adding one of the most-requested features to the TAPS–simultaneous device activation, allowing both the light and laser to be activated by a patented single button (the other button will still activate one device separately).

The TAPS SYNC comes in 4 variants for customers to choose which configuration best suits their chosen light/laser combo, and comes with one 9” Crane-style lead for devices using the Crane connector (L3Harris ATPIAL, B. E. Meyers MAWL, Steiner DBAL, etc.) and one 9” Surefire-style lead for Surefire weaponlights.

TAPS SYNC also introduces numerous other small improvements and upgrades that have also been integrated into the TAPS Standard as well, including a new and improved Crane-style connector which features a more universally accepted stem that more solidly seats in ports from L3Harris (Insight/EOTech), Steiner, B.E. Meyers, and Wilcox. The outer portion of the connector also features a recess that increases purchase with fingers during removal.

The Surefire style connector has also been improved, with an angled plug that pushes the cable back towards the weapon.  This decreases the overall “footprint” of cable/connector on the back of the light, reducing snag hazards.

The new 9” leads on both the TAPS Standard and TAPS SYNC allow more flexibility for end-users to place the remote switch in their desired location, accommodating a wider range of devices and mounts (Streamlight leads will remain at 7”).

Finally, new hardware interfaces decrease the amount of hardware required for mounting the TAPS and TAPS SYNC to Picatinny rails by removing the threaded sockets previously required for rail-mounted configurations, while the polymer back-plate is now recessed for M-LOK fasteners.

Lifetime warranty.

Introductory Price

TAPS SYNC: $158.00

TAPS: $145.00
