MasterPiece Arms (MPA) Introduces the Next Generation of the Most Revolutionary Chassis Ever Produced: The Matrix Professional Chassis

Designed with the top-level Precision Rifle Series and National Rifle League competitors in mind, the new Matrix Pro Chassis has evolved to meet the demands of the precision long-range market. 

Comer, Ga. (January 2022) – MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturer of precision Pistol, BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, is proud to unveil the next generation of the most revolutionary chassis ever produced, the MPA Matrix Professional Chassis. It was designed with the top-level Precision Rifle Series (PRS) and National Rifle League (NRL) competitors in mind. With a multitude of configurations in grips, thumb rests, and trigger finger supports, the primary interface between the shooter and the rifle (the grip) has over 100 different variations. The location of the shooter’s hand, closer to the bore of the rifle, provides even more variety on how the shooter can set up the chassis. Watch the new video on the most advanced competition rifle chassis ever created here:
“Over the past several years, the competitive landscape of precision long-range shooting has changed dramatically. MasterPiece Arms has always been committed to developing new technology to give the shooter a better opportunity to hit more targets. Since 2015, our MPA Chassis have been the number one chassis in the PRS, and 2021 was an especially good year,” commented Phil Cashin, President of MasterPiece Arms.
He continued, “however, the shooting market continues to change and become more complex and difficult and so the equipment must continue to evolve to meet these demands. No other company within this long-range competitive market has continued to lead with new technology as much as we have at MPA. So, with that said, we are proud to present the Matrix Professional Chassis, our continued commitment to this endeavor.”
The Matrix Pro Chassis features integrated comp side rails that provide an incredibly stable platform when shooting in an improvised position using a bag for primary support. The fully machined profile of the forend provides 60 percent more stiffness than the first-gen Matrix or ESR chassis. It is simply the most rigid forend ever created for PRS/NRL style shooting. The extended forend is also two inches longer than on the first-gen Matrix. The exit point on the Matrix Pro RAT RAIL (Arca Rail technology that MPA invented in 2015), now offers a simple exit point for removing a bipod during a stage. Simply slide the bipod off the front of the chassis.
The Matrix Pro Chassis offers each shooter a series of unique plates that are mounted in front of the magwell which accomplishes a series of different benefits. These plates protect the magazine during positional use, enhance stability for shooting positional with a rear bag, and give the shooter multiple options to suit his or her specific shooting style and technique. There are currently four interchangeable plates available.
Not only does the Matrix Pro Chassis utilize a unique internal and external weight tuning system, but the chassis design itself has also been redesigned, including a larger hole in the buttstock, while the buttstock itself is thinner, to shift weight from the buttstock to the chassis forend. A thin profile cheek riser allows the shooter’s head to get more into the rifle. This further enhances the ability for each shooter to fine-tune their balance point based on his or her specific rifle configuration and desired center balance location and gives the Pro an exceptional level of weight balancing options.
The Quick Release Bag Rider offers an adjustment to the height of the rear bag rider with a simple press of a button. This unique system provides extreme levels of flexibility for the shooter when engaging targets at a variety of elevations or if the shooting platform requires changes to the rear bag height. If a shooter has ever tried to shoot a stage with the bag sitting vertical, that shooter knows it is not very stable. With the Matrix Pro Chassis, the shooter just needs to push a button and the bag can now be compressed properly by the new position of the bag rider.
Barrels are getting bigger. The Matrix Pro Chassis can handle large straight profiles with its new 1.350 channel diameter without modifying the chassis.
MPA has developed a hand measurement chart to help identify which grip configuration may work best for each individual shooter. The MPA Matrix Pro Chassis features six different grip options (three swept and three vertical), three different thumb rest designs, and four different trigger finger support options. It also has M-LOK slots along the sides and bottom of the chassis forend, an enhanced buttstock design with butt hook, and comes with a standard or enhanced night vision bridge. The Matrix Pro Chassis will come equipped with the steel version of the V4 Spigot Mount out front, providing both rigidity and additional weight for weight balance.
The MPA Matrix Pro Chassis is machined on MPA’s CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. The MPA-produced buttstock comes with an adjustable cheek riser and length of pull, recoil pad with height and cant adjustment, and adjustable cheek riser. The v-bedding system provides additional clearance for glass bedding action and straight section of the barrel if desired. MPA Matrix Professional Chassis Specifications: Action: Remington Short Action (and Clones)Weight: 6.4 lbs.Dimensions: 36 in. x 8 in. x 8 in.Length of Pull: 13.5 – 14.75” (Can be reduced to 12.5” upon request.

Lucas Burnley’s Squid™ – now in Extra Medium

Knifemaker Lucas Burnley holding the Squid XM in front of him. A caption on the bottom of the image reads 'The Squid™ "Extra Medium"'
Years ago, designer Lucas Burnley brought the iconic Squid™ to life. Skyrocketing as a fan-favorite compact carry, it became a top choice for those looking to strike the balance of simplicity, performance, and functionality. 
Now, Lucas takes a new stab at reimaging this time-honored design, bringing us the larger Squid™ XM. 
Still checking the box of being a versatile EDC, the longer blade length handles tasks both big and small—and is now recognized as more “extra medium” in size.

Revision Announces New Laser Eye Protection Designed for Aviators



Revision Announces New Laser Eye Protection Designed for Aviators at the 2022 SHOT Show

ESSEX JUNCTION, VERMONT (January 15, 2022)Revision Military, the world leader in ballistic and laser protective eyewear systems, announces a new laser eye protection solution optimized for aviator protection and awareness. Developed with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Revision’s CALI-C lens formulation offers eye protection that protects against common handheld laser hazards while performing in a cockpit environment.

“Each year the FAA reports a higher rate of laser strikes against aircraft, putting aviators at risk,” said Revision CEO Amy Coyne. “Over the past decade, Revision has been partnered with AFRL on laser eye protection solutions for the military. This CALI-C formulation represents a real solution that gives aviators peace of mind while operating in low-altitude operations, keeping them safe and reducing the impact of laser hazards on their mission.”

The CALI (Commercial Aviation Low Intensity) solution was developed by AFRL in collaboration with Revision Military and successfully tested and evaluated by Washington State Patrol pilots. The Personnel Protection Team at AFRL’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate is headed by Dr. Matthew Lange, who says “Simply put, the lenses maximize protection while minimizing the impact to the cockpit.”

The ideal cockpit laser eye protection solution offers the following: a wide range of protection given the variety of laser hazards; lenses that don’t interfere with the cockpit instrument panel yet transmit enough light to be worn at night when most laser incidents occur; and are easy to don and doff featuring frames that integrate with cockpit head borne equipment (headsets, helmets, etc). Therefore, a set of laser protective eyewear designed for a ground-to-ground laser hazard isn’t ideal for the cockpit. The CALI-C solution was developed to maximize aviator protection and situational awareness – solving the challenges of laser eye protection in a cockpit environment.

Revision research scientists look to design formulations that consider the specific end-user environment and needs. Both rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft have the benefit of altitude, which means a reduction in the rate of eye damage, but a heightened threat of distraction, disorientation, and flash blindness as laser light can fill a cockpit with bright light in an instant. The CALI-C formulation takes this into account by offering a wide band of protection without compromising light transmission – a critical point given most aviation laser incidents happen at night.

CALI-C is being offered in two configurations tailored for either fixed-wing or rotary-wing environments: The Aviator SF-2 frame offers a lightweight metal frame with dual lenses – low profile and ideal for a fixed-wing cockpit. The StingerHawk® frame offers a single wrap-around lens for maximum coverage, ballistic protection, and anti-fog performance for rotary-wing cockpits. Both configurations of the CALI-C formulation are restricted for sale to aviation end users only. Please contact for more information.

Revision is relentlessly dedicated to protect vision by developing and delivering purpose-built eye protection for military and tactical use worldwide. The Company has invested in the development and delivery of advanced laser protective solutions over the past decade, and become experts in both ballistic laser protective solutions to protect military, law enforcement and first responders today, as well as the distinct ability to develop custom solutions based upon the unique threat and situation. Revision specializes in integration for the optimum and necessary balance of protection and performance.

JANUARY 14, 2022

GENESEO, ILL. (1/14/22) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of the Hellion™, answering the call for superior ballistic performance in a short, modular and fully ambidextrous 5.56mm bullpup platform.

Unlike a traditional long gun, the bullpup system locates the action and the magazine behind the trigger and into the buttstock area. By doing this, it reduces the overall length drastically, while still allowing you to have a barrel long enough to retain effective downrange performance.

Based on the internationally proven VHS-2 bullpup, which has been employed by the Croatian armed forces in demanding environments ranging from Iraq to Africa and beyond, the Springfield Armory Hellion offers American shooters a semi-automatic version of this highly capable firearm. As part of the Hellion’s development, Springfield Armory adapted the original VHS-2 design for the American market. This includes its ability to feed from AR-pattern magazines, the use of replaceable AR-pattern pistol grips, M-Lok® slots in the handguard and the addition of six QD mounts.

The Hellion features a reversible ejection system that requires no additional parts or tools. Complementing this system is a set of fully ambidextrous controls, including the safety, charging handle, magazine and bolt release. The result is an ultra-compact 5.56mm that can be easily fired from either shoulder.

“The new semi-automatic Hellion builds upon the solid foundation of the Croatian VHS-2, and adapts it to the needs of American shooters,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “With the changes applied to the design by Springfield Armory, the Hellion offers American shooters a truly unique and capable 5.56mm bullpup.”

The Hellion is highly adaptable to the needs of shooters, through the use of a five-position collapsible buttstock as well as a two-position adjustable gas system. It is also ready to accept the optic of your choice on the top strip of Picatinny rail, which also integrates a set of flip-up iron sights. It comes with a 30-round Magpul® PMAG and Bravo Company USA® BCMGUNFIGHTER™ Mod 3 pistol grip. MSRP is $1,999.

ANOKA, Minnesota – January 14, 2022 – The National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Shooting Illustrated magazine selected Federal’s Force X2 shotshell ammunition product to receive its Golden Bullseye Award for 2022 Ammunition Product of the Year. Federal will be recognized in association with the award during a special reception on Friday, May 27, 2022, at the 2022 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, Texas.

NRA Women Names Federal’s Punch 22 LR as a 2022 Golden Bullseye Award Winner



NRA Women Names Federal’s Punch 22 LR as a 2022 Golden Bullseye Award Winner

ANOKA, Minnesota – January 14, 2022 – Federal’s Punch 22 LR has been honored with the 2022 NRA Women Gear of the Year Golden Bullseye Award. Federal will be recognized in association with the award during a special reception on Friday, May 27, 2022, at the 2022 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, Texas.

“Until Federal’s introduction of Punch 22 LR, there wasn’t a self-defense option for this platform,” stated Rick Stoeckel, Federal’s Product Director of Rimfire ammunition. “Defense with a handgun isn’t one size fits all. Different shooters have different needs based on their firearm selection. We are proud and grateful to receive this award.”

The first-of-its-kind 29-grain nickel-plated lead-core bullet is pushed at maximum velocities for the deepest penetration through short-barrel handguns. So, whether you want to carry a 22 LR pistol as a backup gun, don’t feel comfortable with centerfire pistols, or simply want to get more versatility from your rimfire, Punch makes the 22 LR cartridge a viable choice.

The NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest products available in the shooting sports. To qualify for consideration for a Golden Bullseye Award, the product must meet a variety of demanding criteria on design, function, value and overall contribution to the shooting industry.

Federal’s Punch 22 LR bullet itself is a departure from standard 22 LR design. It features a flat nose and utilizes a heavy nickel-plated jacket around a lead core. So not only does it travel faster than competing 22 projectiles, but its design also deliberately minimizes expansion and retains weight to maintain sufficient straight-line penetration. That is a lot to ask from a .22 bullet, which is why other manufacturers have shied away from the challenge. But Federal’s engineering team pulled it off, giving America’s favorite cartridge a chance to prove itself for protection.

Federal ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide or purchased online direct from Federal. For more information on all products from Federal or to shop online, visit

SIG SAUER Launches Commercial Variant of U.S. Army Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) MCX-SPEAR and 277 SIG FURY Ammunition

SIG SAUER Launches Commercial Variant of U.S. Army Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) MCX-SPEAR and 277 SIG FURY Ammunition

NEWINGTON, N.H., (January 13, 2022) – SIG SAUER is proud to announce the official expansion of the MCX series of rifles with the new MCX-SPEAR chambered in 277 SIG FURY.  The MCX-SPEAR was developed with direct input from U.S. warfighters to provide more power, distance, and accuracy to replace the current M4 rifle platform.  The MCX-SPEAR is now the most innovative and advanced AR platform in the world.


“This is a rare opportunity for passionate consumers to own a piece of history,” began Ron Cohen, President & CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc. “This first production run MCX-SPEAR, and all of the revolutionary technology behind its development, is being offered to the commercial market in a configuration that is a near match to our NGSW-R submission. Further, this is the only rifle submission to the program that is designed and engineered in the United States by a company with the manufacturing scale and proven adherence to military-grade quality requirements – which is a tremendous source of pride for everyone at SIG SAUER.”

The MCX-SPEAR is an adaptable multi-caliber rifle (277 SIG FURY, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7.62 NATO, with barrel change) featuring rear and side non-reciprocating charging handles, 6-position folding stock, ambidextrous fire control, bolt-catch, and mag release, 2-stage match trigger, 2-position adjustable gas piston, a lightened free-float M-LOK™ handguard, a full-length picatinny rail, and ships with (2) 20-round magazines.

“The revolutionary SIG FURY ammunition is the most technically advanced leap in smalls arms ammunition in over 150 years, this turns your intermediate rifle platform into magnum performance without the added weight or length while still using 20-round magazines,” added Cohen.

The 277 SIG FURY ammunition is the commercial variant of the 6.8 x 51 hybrid military round available in the hybrid case technology submitted to the U.S. Army NGSW program. Also available is a 277 SIG FURY FMJ traditional cartridge round.

“The final component of this special-edition offering includes the SLX Suppressor. The design of the SLX suppressor is optimized to dramatically reduce harmful toxic backflow and features our patented QD attach/detach system making installation of the suppressor a game-changing level of ease,” said Cohen.

The SIG SAUER SLX Series of suppressors are designed to drastically reduce toxic fume inhalation by the end-user and sound reduction and are available commercially for 5.56, 7.62 NATO, and SIG FURY 277 calibers. The SLX suppressors feature a monolithic core construction in Inconel, an internal multi-flow path to exhaust gases at a higher rate resulting in lower toxic fume inhalation, a sound reducing baffle design, a flash reducing end cap, and are available with either the new Clutch-LOK QD mounting system for easy install and removal that offers an intuitive tactile locking ring with infinite radial locking positions, or direct thread.

Grey Man Tactical™ warranties its products against defects in workmanship and materials. If you have a defective product, we will gladly replace it at no cost to you. This does not apply to third party products.

About GMT™:

In 2012, Paul Capdepon lived in an area where he preferred the contents of his personal gear to not be known. He carried a nondescript commuter-style backpack and wanted the ability to organize EDC-type gear. Not finding a suitable option, Paul decided to adapt the traditional MOLLE-style grid and designed the first Rigid MOLLE Panel™ to insert into any backpack with a 15″ laptop sleeve.

After receiving interest in the Rigid MOLLE Panel™ Paul had made for his own gear, he decided to launch a basic website in 2014 to begin selling them. Paul worked with local manufacturers from his home state of Louisiana as the demand for expanding the range of RMP™ sizes quickly increased. GMT™ has performed extensive testing and evaluations in the most adverse and demanding conditions. GMT™ then incorporated customer feedback to optimize performance in creating a dependable organizational platform.

The RMP Series™ has since been utilized by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies – specifically the DOS, DOJ, DHS, FBI, USMS, USBP, NYPD and LAPD to US Armed Forces, including the US Army, USAF, USN, USMC, USCG and USSOCOM – with implementation in missions assigned across Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and surrounding areas of operation. As a result, the RMP Series™ has yielded over 1,000 Five Star Reviews in our efforts to make critical gear rapidly accessible.

It is our ongoing passion to serve the prepared citizens, outdoorsmen, Law Enforcement, First Responders and Armed Forces communities, and we look forward to continuing to create gear that enables you to perform at the highest standard.

Otis Technology Partners With Daniel Defense to Provide Custom Cleaning Gear For Their Firearms


Lyons Falls, NY: Otis Technology is proud to announce it has partnered with Daniel Defense to provide custom cleaning gear for their firearms.

Elite Iron Launches the ASSET Suppressor

January 13, 2022

Elite Iron Launches the ASSET Suppressor

(Potomac, MT) – Elite Iron, premier designer and manufacturer of professional grade firearms suppressors, Revolution bipods and accessories, is proud to announce the launch of the modular, multi-caliber ASSET suppressor.

The new patented ASSET suppressor is all modular in design and is available in .30 cal and .375 cal. Titanium, aluminum and 4140 heat treated construction gives the ASSET a rugged yet lightweight feel. The ASSET .30 cal weighs 23.5 oz. fully assembled with brake, and when removing the 2nd stage the weight is reduced to 16.5 oz. The ASSET .375 cal weighs 40 oz. complete with brake, 32 oz. at 1st stage with brake, and 27 oz. at 1st stage with castle nut. Interchangeable direct thread mounts  allow for modularity from .223 to .300 WIN MAG for the ASSET 30 cal. and .300 Norma to .375 CT for the .375 ASSET.
The ASSET helps improve long range accuracy by controlling the gas flow. The internal design allows for less uneven pressure on the base and body of the projectile resulting in less disruption of the bullet flight.

This suppressor is a true ASSET for every type of marksman and shooting application. The ASSET has four different configurations out of the box. The first stage can be used with the castle nut when a compact size is more favorable. For maximum suppression and flight control, using both stages with the muzzle brake will be your ASSET.

Included with purchase: 1st and 2nd stage of suppressor, castle nut, muzzle brake and 2 tools for disassembly. Disassembly for cleaning of the ASSET is very easy and PPE should always be used for protection from harmful contaminants introduced to the internals of a suppressor.

MSRP for the ASSET .30 cal is $1495. MSRP for the ASSET .375 cal is $1795.

Force X2 Shorty – Federal has combined the power of two new technologies to create a shotshell option that changes the nature of self-defense. Force X2 Shorty shells measure just 1 ¾ inches but hold a payload of six 00 segmenting buckshot engineered to split into two equal pieces on impact.

Select Federal Top Gun offerings combine the new Paper Wad, cellulose-based filler and a paper gas-sealing over-powder wad to maximize patterns while reducing shooters’ impact. Available in both lead and steel payload options.

HST – Fuel magnum revolvers with the power of Federal Premium HST thanks to new offerings in 357 Magnum and 327 Magnum. The proven bullet design fully utilizes the magnum performance of these cartridges to maximize expansion and hit critical penetration depths.

January 13, 2022


Fort Worth, TX (January 13, 2022) – iRayUSA, a Texas-based designer, manufacturer and distributor of premium thermal night vision devices is proud to announce the US availability of a new series of thermal imaging devices, the ZOOM SERIES, from InfiRay Outdoor. InfiRay Outdoor’s latest offering, the ZOOM, brings multiple exciting new technologies to the commercial thermal market; 2X optical zoom lens, an algorithm based shutterless non-uniformity correction feature and a full HD 1440×1080 resolution AMOLED display.
Featuring InfiRay’s patented dual-field-of-view design, the ZOOM’s lens allows the user to seamlessly switch between a wide field-of-view (FOV) for detection, and a narrow FOV for target identification. This 2X increase in magnification occurs optically with an intuitive twist of the objective focus ring and maintains 100 percent of the sensor’s native 640×512 resolution.
The ZOOM also features a software based non-uniformity correction (NUC) feature. Unlike a standard NUC, which uses a shutter or lens cap, the ZOOM features InfiRay’s shutterless NUC algorithm, which is completely silent, requires no user input and allows for unmatched battery life.
The ZOOM’s viewing display features a full HD 1440×1080 resolution AMOLED display and is coupled with an 20X magnification eyepiece to provide the most clarity possible. Additionally, images and live video can be transferred wirelessly via the ultra-fast InfiRay Outdoor app, or can be recorded onboard with ZOOM’s 32gb of internal storage.
“Being able to offer optical zoom in a commercial thermal imager is going to change the industry” stated Angelo Brewer, Director of Operations, iRayUSA. “Industry leading optical performance paired with a full HD display is something every predator hunter needs to experience” continued Brewer.
In addition to the ZOOM’s combination of sensor performance, optical magnification, display resolution, and battery life, other features include multiple color options, picture in picture mode, digital zoom, hot spot tracking, and stadiametric rangefinding.
The ZOOM is available for purchase now through the authorized iRayUSA dealer network with a suggested price point of $3,999. As with all iRayUSA products, the ZOOM SERIES thermal imagers come with a 5-year warranty, with a 1-week turnaround process. A full list of ZOOM SERIES specifications and an authorized dealer locator can be found on the iRayUSA website, 

5-Year Warranty with 1-Week Turnaround Process
At iRayUSA we are first and foremost hunters and users of our products, and we understand that failure is not an option. One of our primary objectives at iRayUSA is to greatly improve the customer service level for the end user. We accomplish this through offering our industry-first 1-week repair guarantee, and by only working with highly qualified Authorized Dealers. During the published warranty period, iRayUSA will repair or replace, at its discretion, any optic that becomes defective from normal use. If we cannot repair an optic in less than one week, we will offer a replacement in like or better condition.

About iRay USA
iRayUSA is a designer, manufacturer, and distributor of premium thermal night vision devices. Our company was established in 2020 by industry experts with more than a decade of experience in thermal sales, product development, and field use. We are proud of our industry experience and time spent in the field using thermal products, and that is what drives us to make the best products possible; products that we want to use as night hunters.

SAAMI and USDOT-PHMSA Develop Guidance for Shippers of Ammunition and Component Parts

January 13, 2022


SAAMI and USDOT-PHMSA Develop Guidance for Shippers of Ammunition and Component Parts

Small Arms

NEWTOWN, Conn. – The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute® (SAAMI®) is pleased to announce that a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and SAAMI has resulted in the development of educational resources that provide guidance for shippers of ammunition and components.

This PHMSA-SAAMI collaborative effort is timely and important because with the increased demand for ammunition and components, the amount sold online and shipped by small distributors, retailers and individuals has increased dramatically. By providing this information, PHMSA and SAAMI will help to ensure that shipments of small arms ammunition and components are done safely and in accordance with existing requirements under the Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The document, called “The Facts on Small Arms-related HAZMAT,” provides information on determining what items are considered hazardous materials, what “EX Approvals” are and how they are used, packaging of explosives, shipping smokeless and black powder, shipping primers/percussion caps, shipping ammunition and empty primed cases, and shipping using the “Limited Quantity” (“LQ”) exemption.

In addition, the document contains a guide outlining steps to safely ship packages containing HAZMAT items. Part of PHMSA’s Check the Box program, “The Facts on Small Arms-Related HAZMAT” can be found here.

“This public-private initiative between PHMSA and SAAMI, in response to changes in the marketplace, demonstrates the continuing efforts of the firearm and ammunition industry to maintain high standards of safety in all aspects. Our goal is to remind everyone engaged in the business of shipping small arms ammunition and components that it’s their responsibility to ensure their shipments are in full compliance with relevant regulations,” said Joe Bartozzi, SAAMI President and CEO.

SHOT Show® Seminar

At the SHOT Show, the trade show for the shooting, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement industries, PHMSA will be presenting on these topics and will answer questions on Tuesday, January 18, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. local time. Attendees will be able to register for this event through the SHOT Show registration process.


The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, founded in 1926 at the request of the federal government, is dedicated to creating and promulgating technical, performance and safety standards for firearms, ammunition and components, and is committed to being the preeminent global resource for the safe and responsible design, manufacture, transportation, storage and use of these products.

We are looking forward to seeing our old friends and making plenty of new ones at SHOT.”

Cimarron Firearms will showcase their “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” Hollywood trinity, with pistols designed around three legendary spaghetti western characters; Angel Eyes, Tuco, and The Man With No Name. From the Clint Eastwood iconic characters to one of the biggest bestselling books and TV series, “Lonesome Dove,” Cimarron Firearms pays respect to the American cowboy in a restless and changing environment with the Lonesome Dove Walker pistols. Both classic representations of what a Texas Ranger would have carried, these beautiful 9’ .44 Walker reproductions feature special engraving assigned to two of the most beloved Western characters; Capt. Augustus McCrae and Capt. Woodrow F. Call.

Lever-action rifles that protected ranches, herds and stagecoaches, pistols that rode into battle and defined our Western history, and firearms carried by rustlers, bandits, Rangers and Sheriffs, painstakingly reproduced for cowboy action competition, collecting, hunting, defense, or just plain old plinking will be on display at the Cimarron Firearms booth at this year’s SHOT Show.

NDIA statement on long-term continuing resolution and the defense industry

Sixteen new members join NDIA board of directors

Jan. 13, 2022

NDIA statement on long-term continuing resolution and the defense industry

ARLINGTON, VA — The National Defense Industrial Association offerings the following statement on the impact of continuing resolutions on defense spending:

NDIA submitted a letter to the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee before its January 12 hearing on the “Impact of Continuing Resolutions on the Department of Defense and Services.”

The letter, entered into the record during the hearing, highlights the negative impacts of a long-term continuing resolution on the defense industry. Supported by evidence from NDIA’s annual Vital Signs report, the letter describes the seemingly endless stop-and-start contract cycles, creating inefficiency and disruption that ripples through the defense supply chain with disproportionate effects on smaller companies.

During the hearing, Marine Corps Commandant Ge. David Berger best summarized the negative impacts of a possible CR when he said the “train wreck in front of us is entirely preventable.”

Four months into the 2022 fiscal year, the Defense Department has operated under two CRs, with the current expiring February 18. These actions cap spending to the previous year, prevent new program starts and further erode our country’s parody with competitors. As the service chiefs emphasized, this puts our advantage at risk, with a cumulative impact on modernization that will be difficult to overcome.

Also entered into the record, and highlighted during the hearing, was a multi-association letter NDIA signed with 10 other organizations that submitted to Democratic and Republican leadership in the House and Senate. The letter states: “Our organizations believe that a strong, adequately funded defense posture is vital for our economic stability and our ability to both deter and, if necessary, engage threats to our nation and our allies.”

NDIA continues to focus on the need for an appropriations bill and will release a white paper, expected next week, detailing the negative impacts of a yearlong CR on the services and the defense industrial base.

NDIA signed the multi-association letter with: the Aerospace Industries Association, the Air Force Association, the Association of the United States Army, the Association of the United States Navy, the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States, the Global Special Operations Forces Foundation, the Marine Corps League, the National Guard Association of the United States, the Professional Services Council and the Reserve Organization of America.

Life-saving L3Harris T4™ robot puts big robot capabilities in a small package

Going into harm’s way so your people don’t have to

From disposing of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to conducting dangerous intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, military personnel put their lives at risk every day to make the world a better place.
Robots play a crucial role in ensuring they stay safe.
While most robots offer mission-critical protection,
many do not provide sufficient precision. Without any means of physical feedback to allow the operator to experience what the robot is interacting with, it can prove difficult to perform complex tasks. This can lead to increased task completion time, a greater number of errors, and frustrated operators.

The T4™ robot from L3Harris Technologies leverages intuitive haptic control to provide unparalleled precision and human-like dexterity during complex missions. Put simply, the T4 arm moves how you move, and you feel what it feels. Offering big robot capabilities within a medium-sized footprint, it’s compact, ruggedized, and ready for any challenge.
With the ability to deploy even the most powerful EOD disruptors, the
T4 is changing the game for the mid-sized robot market. Thanks to best-in-class reach and strength, it allows operators to perform jobs that up until now have only been possible with larger robots.
