Armasight Introduces Multifunctional Thermal Imaging Monocular
« Reply #2 on: January 13, 2016, 01:21:19 PM »
Armasight is adding to their line of thermal and NV products...

Armasight Introduces Multifunctional Thermal Imaging Monocular

Armasight is proud to introduce the Q14 Long-wave Infrared Multifunctional Thermal Imaging
Monocular (LIMTIM) representing the latest evolution in our never-ceasing quest to reduce size,
weight, and power (SWaP) while maximizing the number of available features and functions.
The LIMTIM’s remarkably compact size ensures that it can be concealed in a shirt pocket and its
featherweight mass at 240g with battery gives claim to it being the lightest fully multi-functional
thermal imager currently on the market. The LIMTIM has a wide range of features incorporated
into the unit that put it at the forefront of all other miniature thermal imagers in its class. It can be
equipped with either a visible or near-IR laser pointer intended for handing off targets of interest to
non-thermal equipped assets in the field. It has two integral rail mounts so that it is not necessary
to disengage the head/helmet mount interface in order to mount the unit on a weapon as a standalone
short-range weapon sight. The mini-rail design allows for mounting on a wide variety of inservice
head mounts, helmet mounts, reflex cameras, digital video recorders, and
MIL-STD-1913 weapon rail systems using the optional quick-release interfaces. The mini-rails are
non-invasive enough where handheld operation is comfortable and ergonomically optimized to
the operator’s hands - NOMEX gloved or not. Equipped with digital compass and inclinometer, the
Q14 LIMTIM offers the operator the tools necessary to interpolate accurate distance to target and
target orientation.

Additional Armasight proprietary hyper-image processing (HIP) code provides the LIMTIM with
a robust library of software features to tailor the image to the optimum standards required of
the operator. These features include direct button functions such as display brightness, palette
selection, electronic zoom, manual non-uniformity correction (NUC) using a simple, intuitive three
button keypad. Menu driven features incorporate desirable operator-specific adjustments such as
palette selection, reticule selection and color, weapon boresight, scene-related imaging corrections,
stored rifle caliber profiles, format selection, compass calibration sequence, and a “factory settings”
default option. The wireless remote capability and Bluetooth features prevents the Q14 LIMTIM from
becoming obsolete as new applications and software reaches maturity and comes to market. The
nine-pin connector on the Q14 reveals the dynamic nature of this mite-sized powerhouse. Through
the multi-pin connector, the operator can record video using the Armasight Digital Video Recorder
(DVR), augment the battery life by attaching to external battery options, inject target range data
from an externally mounted Armasight laser rangefinder and update/upload new software revision
and applications from personal accounts associated with the Armasight customer access web sites.
The Q14 LIMTIM is designed from inception to be waterproof to 20 meter and meet all the established
environmental requirements of MIL-STD-810(G).

Operating off a variety of 123A format commercial expendable and rechargeable batteries, the Q14
LIMTIM offers a respectable 1+ hours run time for the 640x512 focal plane array format. With a
diopter range of -5 to +5 diopters and a focus range of 20cm to infinity, the LIMTIM demonstrates its
operational flexibility for all mission applications.

  • MIL-810G rugged, waterproof glass fiber reinforced construction
  • FLIR Quark 2 VOx microbolometer in 640 and 336 options

  • One CR123A battery operation
  • Made in the USA

G2 Releases New Civic Duty Self-Defense Round
« Reply #4 on: January 13, 2016, 01:37:28 PM »
New self defense ammo from the maker of the R.I.P rounds...

G2 Releases New Civic Duty Self-Defense Round

Winder, GA – G2 Research introduces its new Civic Duty round for serious self-defense.  Designed to reliably and quickly expand to 2.5 times its caliber, this new round delivers incredible attack stopping energy, large wound area and excellent penetration.

A “humble” 100-grain 9mm Civic Duty bullet will open up to 0.855 inches, creating a near-instant fight-stopping wound by effectively delivering all of its energy inside the target.

The Civic Duty bullet is a solid copper, CNC-machined bullet that upon entering the target immediately begins expansion as a large hollow point. At initial contact, six large petals of the jacket peel back to create a fight-stopping wound. Unlike conventional hollow point bullets – which may not expand reliably due to clothing filling up the hollow point, the Civic Duty will indeed reliably open up because of its peeling petal design.

The Civic Duty round is currently available in 9mm and a .45ACP round will be on the market in the near future. The Civic Duty round is designed to function exceptionally well at lower velocities (.45 ACP) and at higher velocities (such as the 9mm at 1,230+ fps).

Another thing: The lighter bullet weight greatly reduces felt recoil and muzzle flip, making for faster and more accurate follow up shots-if necessary.

Priced at $41.99 for a box of 20, this is no low-cost plinking round. Then again, low-cost rounds are not made on CNC machines. The Civic Duty round is designed to stop a fight quickly and sometimes you must ask yourself: “Is my life worth two bucks a shot?”

•   MSRP: $41.99 box of 20 rounds (see above)
•   Caliber: 9mm Parabellum
•   Bullet: 100-grain copper alloy extreme-expansion
•   Velocity: 1,230fps average (+ up to 10 percent)
•   Penetration: 9-10 inches of reliable penetration in ballistic gel

About G2 Research:
G2 Research specializes in the evolution of ammunition. Solid copper fracturing R.I.P. and RipOut, Maximum Expansion Trident & Cold Tracer V.I.P. Round

New Products Available From XS Sights
« Reply #5 on: January 13, 2016, 01:54:15 PM »
XS Sights has released a number of new products recently and they will be on display at SHOT Show 2016, each of which is available directly from XS Sights and Brownells.

The XS® Bore Guide is designed to keep the cleaning rod centered in the receiver for the DPMS® GII, as well as AR-15’s chambered in calibers ranging from 5.56 to .30 cal. When taking care of a firearm, it’s important to use a bore guide in order to protect the bore and keep any cleaning solution away from the trigger mechanism. This practice will also help preserve the accuracy of the firearm.
“This is the first bore guide to hit the market that is compatible with the DPMS GII,” said Bo Wallace, technical expert for XS Sight Systems. “As shooters, we know that clean rifles shoot better and there wasn’t a bore guide for the GII and other rifles chambered in .300 Blackout/Whisper.”

XS has also announced the release of Tritium Express Big Dot® and Standard Dot® sight sets for the new Glock® 43.

These Express sights offer the same reliable sighting solution XS® Sights’ customers have come to depend on. Made in Texas from 1114 stress-proof American steel night sight tritium inserts, both Express Big Dot® and Standard Dot® sets are fast-acquisition, defensive-minded sights that excel in any lighting condition. XS® is the ideal upgrade for your home defense, self-defense and conceal carry Glock® 43.

In addition to new G43 sights, XS also has new 1911 Novak Suppressor Height Express Sights. These are made for fast sight acquisition in all light conditions, feature a low profile, and a snag-free design that can be easily installed.

“The XS Express sights have been the flagship product for us,” said Tanya Gorin, Commercial Sales Manager for XS Sight Systems. “These new sights bring the same Express System advantages, but are designed specifically to accommodate a suppressor.” “The 1911 Novak Suppressor Height Sights allow shooters to raise the sight line over a suppressor for an unobstructed view of the target.” Sight sets available in Big Dot® or Standard Dot® front, paired with tritium or non-tritium white stripe rear. Order direct xssights.com or through our trusted partners and wholesalers today!

Rounding out the new lineup from XS is the the Anti-Walk Pin, made specifically for the 12ga. Remington® VERSA MAX®, but also fitting the Benelli® M1, M2 and Super Black Eagle 12.
A regular factory trigger-group pin is retained by a small detent spring. This spring can fail under recoil, or can easily be lost during regular maintenance or modifications. The XS® Anti-Walk Pin is a headed pin retained by a 6-32, pan-head screw, acting as a mechanical lock to keep the pin in place. Precision machined in Texas, the 4140/42 steel is then heat treated, and receives a black-oxide coating for corrosion protection.
“Keeping your guns running reliably is a big key to performing well in competitive shooting,” says XS® Sight Systems Production Manager, Monte Long. “After seeing several trigger plate detent springs break in VERSA MAX®  shotguns, we designed the XS® Anti-Walk trigger pin as a quick, easy and economical upgrade that will prevent the issue before it can happen.”

LMT Defense Announces MARS-L Fully Ambidextrous Rifle Platform
« Reply #8 on: January 20, 2016, 11:49:52 AM »
LMT Defense Announces MARS-L Fully Ambidextrous Rifle Platform

LMT Defense is excited to announce they are releasing the Modular Ambidextrous Rifle System – Light (MARS-L), the most modern ambidextrous M4 ever.  The MARS-L platform was designed in response to a foreign military requirement to field a fully ambidextrous weapon system with complete symmetry and commonality of controls so that users could manipulate the weapon from either side in the same fashion.  This weapon now proudly serves the New Zealand Defence Force.  The MARS-L can first been seen at the 2016 NSSF SHOT Show in booth #20249 and is expected to start shipping at the end of the first quarter of 2016.

The weapon is fully ambidextrous with LMT Defense designed and manufactured: Ambi-Safety Selector Switch; Ambi-Magazine Release Button; Ambi-Bolt Catch/Release Paddle; and Ambi-Charging Handle. All have been tested and vetted by both military and law enforcement agencies.  The ambidextrous features allow an operator to perform more operations from either hand including catching the bolt with the right index finger so as not to remove the hand from the grip.  To achieve this, the new lower forging design includes the bumps for the Ambi-Bolt Catch/Release Paddle, Ambi- Magazine Release Button and Fence Well. The lower forging also includes a flared magazine well that assists the operator in locating the magazine during insertion.

The modular weapon design is available in Semi-Auto (LS) or Select Fire (LA) models with 14.5”, 16”, 18” and 20” barrel options and can be fitted with the CQB® upper to accommodate a 10.5” barrel. The weapon also includes eight QD locations - five on the front rail, one in the end plate of the lower receiver and two on the stock. The weapon is “lightweight” in that it is designed for smaller rifle calibers: 5.56mm, .300 Blackout, .204Ruger, and 6.8 SPCI.

Finally, the MARS-L utilizes LMT Defense’s monolithic upper receiver to ensure the straightest and strongest rail in the industry. The one piece aluminum forging also allows for the longest barrel extension in the industry which contributes to the greatest weapon accuracy on a production scale. 

The CQB16-MARS will retail for $2,347.90.
