XS Sight Systems – CSAT Weapon Light Glass Assault Tool for Pistol Lights

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015


The CSAT Weapon Light Glass Assault Tool is a very specialized piece of kit, to be sure. Designed by US Army SOF Veteran MSG Paul Howe (USA, Ret), it is essentially a glass breaker attached to the business end of your weapon. Although they also exist for rifle barrels, this model fits to a SureFire X300 weapon light. This means, it’s an integral part of your pistol and an extension of your arms.

There is also a version for the X300 U-boat with its wider bezel as well as the popular Streamlight TLR


Before I get any experts informing me that this won’t work on the new vehicle window safety glass; got it. That glass is so new that few vehicles have it and aside from movie badguys, you don’t run across many that are rolling in a high end 2015 ride. Generally, shitbirds drive crappy cars.

Paul Howe Tactical Carbine from Wilson Combat

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Wilson Combat builds some great guns, so I was very pleased to hear that they would be building a new signature carbine for Paul Howe. More specifically, MSG Paul Howe (USA, Ret), is a special operations veteran and served in the Battle of the Black Sea in Mogadishu, Somalia. Now, he runs CSAT, a well respected training company.


The Howe carbine is offered only in 5.56mm as a stand alone or a more complete package that includes Paul’s preferred optic, the LeupoldVX-6 1-6×24 Firedot along with a VCAS and Streamlight.

Right off the bat, you’ll notice the paint job. Wilson applies a Camouflage Armor-Tuff finish. They claim that this hand applied finish reduces the carbine’s IR signature and helps keep the rifle cooler.

It incorporates a two-stage Wilson Combat TTU with heavier springs for a 4.5 pound trigger release. The Howe Tactical Carbine includes a Daniel Defense fixed front sight tower paired with his CSAT rear aperture flip up. Additionally, it relies on a Wilson peerless, match grade, 5.56 chambered stainless steel 14.7” barrel with deep lightening flutes and a permanently attached Accu-Tac flash hider for a 16″ overall length.


“Were I to have the choice of only one gun, this is the gun it would be. I could do short, intermediate and long range work with this one rifle. It is like having one golf club to play the entire course”
– Paul Howe
