Live Rebate: CZ P-07 & P-09 Offer User-Customizable in the Omega Trigger

Live Rebate: CZ P-07 & P-09 Offer User-Customizable in the Omega Trigger

Kansas City, KS (September 29, 2022) – The CZ Omega Trigger System improves upon the CZ 75’s proven hammer ignition design, allowing for swapping out safety for a decocker without a gunsmith or specialized tools. CZ utilizes the advanced Omega trigger in the P-07 polymer-frame compact pistols and has since included it as a standard feature in its full-sized P-09 model. The pistols offer a great value with a $50 rebate going on now.

The beauty of the Omega system is its convertible decocker/safety system. Shooters choose whether they carry the pistol cocked and locked like a 1911 or decocked for a double-action first pull of the trigger. The Omega DA/SA trigger provides a crisp single-action trigger break while providing the safety of a DA first-pull option. Swapping the safety for a decocking lever or vice versa only takes a few minutes using the supplied parts and instructions.

CZ streamlined the P-07’s design creating the current generation by removing sharp edges while adding forward cocking serrations. The P-07 features a 3.75-inch barrel for a handy all-day carry size, while its fiber-reinforced polymer lightens the pistol. Metal sights, a new style trigger, and redesigned hammer round out the upgrades on the P-07. This pistol is available in two versions: a 15-round and a 10-round, low-capacity model.    

The full-size P-09 boasts the same shooter-friendly features as the P-07 but in a larger package. Its 4.54-inch barrel improves ballistic performance and increases its sight radius. At the same time, its impressive 19-round flush-fitting magazine provides unsurpassed service pistol firepower. A low-capacity model is also available with a 10-round magazine.

Both pistols include small, medium, and large backstraps for customizing grip fit for any sized hand. The pistol’s ergonomics assist in a natural point of aim for improved precision and faster follow-up shots. An integrated 1913 Picatinny rail mounts auxiliary lights or lasers for low-light situations making the P-07 or P-09 suitable for all conditions.

Shooters trust the reliability and performance of CZ pistols. The customizable polymer-framed P-series pistols exceed expectations and are well-suited for everyday carry. Add the Omega Trigger System and a bevy of modern features, and the choice is clear—the P-07 and P-09 are both outstanding pistol options.  Additionally, with CZ-USA’s current $50 rebate, consumers can now enjoy these options at an even greater value than before! This rebate is valid for a $50 Visa gift card, consumers can find the rebate form here.

100-Year Celebration Content Added to the Federal Ammunition Website: The Horn Era and Federal Fusion

ANOKA, Minnesota – September 29, 2022 – As part of the 100-year anniversary celebration, Federal Ammunition is featuring monthly online content celebrating Federal’s rich history. The month of September highlighted the ownership era of Charles L. Horn and the Federal Fusion Hunting Loads. Content can be found on the 100-year anniversary website: A Century Of Authority (federalpremium.com).

“The End of the Horn Era and an Ownership Journey” follows the management journey from founder and president, Charles L. Horn, to Vista Outdoor. Charles Horn was known for being a businessman that cared for his employees and the town of Anoka, Minnesota. From making sure Federal Ammunition facilities were cared for at a high standard to many donations to local organizations, Charles Horn set the tone for Federal Ammunition for decades to come. 

“In the nearly 50 years since Charles L. Horn has stepped down from the company a much has changed, but much has stayed the same,” said Jason Nash, Federal Ammunition Vice President of Marketing. “Federal Ammunition is still run by sound leaders and dedicated employees and our commitment to give back to the local and shooting/hunting communities remains strong.”

Covering the success of one of Federal’s most popular hunting loads, “Federal Fusion Hunting Loads” covers the creation, innovation, and successful performance of the Fusion bullet. Launched in 2005, the Fusion line boasts a lead alloy core that is precision plated with a uniform thickness of copper and then formed into a final shape.

“Federal Fusion ammunition showcases how Federal Ammunition can produce a bonded bullet that doesn’t affect accuracy,” said Nash. “The success in the field of the Fusion line is why it’s available in so many calibers from .223 to the large calibers taken on safari’s and nearly everything in-between.”

Each month through the end of 2022, Federal Ammunition will be uploading additional content focused on the rich history of this American ammunition company.

In addition to the monthly online content, Federal Ammunition has released a 244-page book preserving the company’s history. Federal Ammunition: The First Hundred Years can be found online: Buy Federal The First 100 Years for USD 59.99 | Federal Ammunition (federalpremium.com).

JACE BAUSEMAN HAS TIPS TO HELP YOU FLY WITH A FIREARM–A GREAT READ!

Jace Bauserman Shooting Tips
September 15th, 2022 6 minute read

Knowing how to fly with a firearm is the trick to hassle-free travel. Know the rules, comply with the laws, and don’t sweat the small stuff.

I was terrified. I’d taken my compound bow on many airplane rides, but this was the first time I would be checking a rifle. I figured it would be a TSA nightmare, and the night before my flight, I got little sleep.

Lucky for me, I’d read an article like the one you’re about to read. The author’s advice was spot-on, and because I did my homework, dotted my I’s, and crossed my T’s, TSA was painless. Plus, my rifle/scope combo arrived in one piece, and when I sent my first round downrange, it hit 1.5-inches high at 100 yards, right where it needed to be.

At one point, flying with a firearm may have been an absolute pain, but today, the process is much more streamlined. Before buying a case, locks, etc., your first mission is to visit tsa.gov and read the straightforward rules. 

Shotgun in a case ready to fly

THE PROCESS

The main thing is to make sure your case is a hard-sided container and is a container that will accept a lock. You may use any brand or type of lock; however, I recommend using a key entry lock. More to come on why.  

As for case choice, there are multitudes to choose from, but I recommend those from Plano, Lakewood, SKB, and Pelican. You want your rifle protected, and these manufacturers have mastered the process. Choose a roomy case that will hold ammo, magazines, and the like, as you can’t tote these items in a carry-on. I also recommend picking a case with wheels, making transport through airports effortless.

When packing your firearm, remove the magazine and double-check that both the gun and the magazines are empty. You are OK to store your ammo in your locked case, but be sure the ammo is not loose. You can tote it in an ammo-certified metal case or leave it in the cardboard box it came in when you purchased it. If hauling a bolt-action rifle, I recommend pulling the bolt. It’s a good idea to utilize space in your case. I do this by packing as much of my hunting clothing in the case as possible. Not only does this save room in other baggage, but it provides extra support for your rifle. 

Removing the bolt and packing gear inside your case is critical when you need to fly with a firearm

After packing your case, fill out a card with your first and last name, email, phone number, and mailing address and put it inside the case. No, this is not a must-do, but it’s another positive step to ensure anything lost is returned to you. I’ve never had a firearm not make it to its destination, but it’s possible, and if it does happen, I want to know I’ve done everything in my power to make the get-it-to-me process ultra-simple.

Next, and I know this likely sounds redundant, practice locking and unlocking your case — not just the latches — but the keyed locks. You want the process to go smoothly, and if a TSA representative wants you to open the case to ensure you’re complying with all TSA regulations, you’ll be able to perform the task in the blink of an eye. This is why I like to go with keyed locks over combination locks. Store your case keys on your vehicle key ring, and keep an extra in your carry-on luggage. Keys are easy to use. Plus, one time, I watched a guy have a complete and total meltdown when he couldn’t remember his combination.

Lastly, be sure to fill out a luggage tag and store that luggage tag in a waterproof, laminated tag storage device, and lash that tag to the outside of your case.

You’re rolling now. When I arrive at the airport, I move my firearm and other baggage to the ticket counter and say to the attendant, “Hello, my name is Jace Bauserman, and I want to declare a firearm.” It’s that simple and that painless. I’ve had to accompany a TSA representative to an x-ray machine and open my case for them, which is zero hassle. Most of the time, though, I declare it and walk to security. The key is staying calm and relaxed. It doesn’t mean something is wrong if they want to open your case or ask you to open it. It doesn’t mean you’ll miss your flight and the hunt of a lifetime. Remember, stay calm and do what they say.

That’s it. That’s the entire process from start to finish. You don’t need to freak out, and you don’t need to arrive at the airport six hours early because you have anxiety about something going awry. TSA isn’t going to storm down the halls chasing you, and you will not be locked in a little room and interrogated. Know and follow the rules, and the process will be silky smooth. 

WHEN YOU REACH YOUR DESTINATION

Upon arrival at your final destination, it’s common for firearms not to come out with regular luggage. Often, rifle cases are considered oversize baggage, and you’ll need to collect your gun from the oversize baggage claim.

Once you reach your final destination and unlock your case, you may find a TSA inspection card inside your case. This doesn’t happen on every trip but is the standard operating procedure, so don’t freak out if you see a little TSA card in your rifle case.

Before starting your hunt or shooting escapade, your last mission is to go through all of your gear, inspect it for damage, and then head to the range and check your zero. Over the past 15 years, I’ve flown hundreds of times with a rifle, and only twice that I can remember did I have to re-sight in, but it’s always important to double-check. 

It's important to take your firearm to the range after you fly with it to double check zero.

There you have it — everything you need to know about how to fly with a firearm. Don’t sweat it; it’s uber-simple.

RAFAEL ACQUIRES NEWCASTLE BASED PEARSON ENGINEERING AS PART OF ITS STRATEGIC EXPANSION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

September 28, 2022: Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. has completed the acquisition of Pearson Engineering Ltd. (PER). The acquisition was executed under a stock purchase agreement (SPA), transferring 100% of the ownership. The acquisition includes PER’s subsidiary company Responsive Engineering Ltd.

Pearson Engineering - Minefield Breaching capability provided to U.S Armed Forces for the Assault Breacher Vehicle (002)About Pearson Engineering

For more than three decades, Pearson Engineering has provided Armed Forces with the mobility and counter-mobility equipment they need to succeed in their missions around the world. From our home in Newcastle upon Tyne in the United Kingdom, we are proud to be recognised around the world for our contribution to armoured vehicle programmes. We design products which help combat forces to defend, move and fight and to adapt quickly to maintain their battlefield advantage. Our innovative approach to providing ‘scalable battlefield mobility’ is based on delivering attachments for armoured vehicles which enhance their agility, adaptability and flexibility and which provide essential mission capabilities to Commanders.

We are located at Armstrong Works in Newcastle, which is a purpose-built armoured vehicle manufacturing facility. Together with our daughter company, Responsive Engineering, we combine our armoured vehicle experience with our class-leading manufacturing expertise, to also provide manufacturing, assembly, integration and test services for armoured vehicle programmes.

In 2022, Pearson Engineering was proud to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category, in recognition of our exceptional export performance. This was the third Queen’s Award in the company’s history.

About Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd.

The company is Israel’s third largest defense company, with 8,000+ employees and over 30 subsidiaries worldwide, serving the defense, security and aerospace markets. RAFAEL is a truly global organization, with a strong presence in many major defense markets; this includes the US, India, South Korea most European NATO member countries, including the UK, as well as throughout Asia, Scandinavia, and South America.

Yoav Har Even, RAFAEL’S President and CEO. “Until recently, most of RAFAEL’s operations in the UK were in partnership with UK prime contractors, with the majority of workshare manufactured in Israel. Pearson and Responsive Engineering’s activity is supported by an outstanding legacy of excellence in innovation. By acquiring this company, we will be able to enhance and expand PER’s manufacturing capabilities in the UK, thus strengthening our UK supply chain to better support our customers, especially the UK MOD and British armed forces. This will lead to a significant increase in the number of jobs in Newcastle and will build strong links with academic institutions throughout the UK and specifically in North East England.”

“Pearson Engineering is immensely proud of its life-saving combat engineering systems, which are used by land forces worldwide. This acquisition will not only allow us to enhance our existing product portfolio but will enable the development of innovative, class-leading products and capabilities.

“Both RAFAEL and Pearson have an outstanding legacy in force protection capabilities”, says Dr. Ran Gozali, EVP, GM Land and Naval Division for RAFAEL. “RAFAEL’s reactive armour, fitted to most UK armoured vehicles in Iraq, saved the lives of many British soldiers. The UK MOD Challenger 3 program is another point of synergy. Pearson and Responsive are manufacturing the tank’s turret structures and, supported by RAFAEL, Pearson will be able to locally manufacture and integrate the TROPHY active protection system, providing the highest level of protection to the crew. This is a great example of RAFAEL’s commitment to deliver additional cutting-edge technologies and capabilities to Pearson Engineering, to support current and future UK MOD needs.”

Ranch Hand

NEW KNIFE DAY!

RANCH HAND

The new Ranch Hand is a slightly smaller version of our best-selling and highly rated Ranch Boss II. The razor-sharp high carbon steel 3″ blade is up to any task and the faux sawed bone handle scales and tough stainless steel bolsters make it a classic beauty.

It has a liner lock with a stiff back spring to keep your fingers safe while cutting, and a simple nail nick in the blade to open it. Thanks to its sturdy build, it’s the perfect knife to have at the ready while you’re completing all your chores, ready whenever you need it.

Paired with a thick brown leather belt sheath, we think it’s an incredibly affordable bargain.

THE RANCH HANDS BIGGER BROTHER

RANCH BOSS ii

No one works harder than a rancher or a farmer. And their work environment can put a variety of demands on a simple folding knife. But our Ranch Boss II can meet just about any challenge your work can dish out. The Ranch Boss II shares the same features as the new Ranch Hand but sports a longer 4″ long blade.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE RANCH BOSS ii

an Outstanding working knife with style!

“I love my Ranch Boss II! The blade style and length make it a perfect working knife. It comes razor sharp in a very nice leather belt pouch. I also think it looks amazing, with old-school styling but with all the modern technology. It feels like a quality knife and is not cheap in any way. I prefer to carry it daily over my Buck 110. For the money, don’t hesitate to try it. You will not be disappointed.” – Customer Review, February 2022

L3Harris BROADSHIELD®: Agile, highly capable Counter-RCIED

Battle-proven protection against the immediate physical threat
The threat from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) has grown exponentially in recent years, and shows no sign of slowing. Many IEDs can be built ad-hoc, controlled remotely and assembled with relative ease. As a result, they are an increasingly prevalent danger to personnel in the field.
As this threat landscape continues to change, L3Harris’ electronic warfare (EW) capability is changing along with it, evolving into tactically agile systems ready to offer enhanced protection against IEDs and RCIEDs.

BROADSHIELD® provides mission-critical protection against the ever-growing threat of RCIEDs for at-risk personnel.

Offering EW capabilities that range from advanced jamming to modular countermeasures, BROADSHIELD is the ideal choice for near-term convoy protection, troop protection, VIP protection and explosive ordnance disposal teams.

Battle-proven, this technology is even able to deliver multi-role EW capability, enabling commanders to rapidly switch between force protection, electronic attack or electronic surveillance as needed.

Defeat the immediate threat with BROADSHIELD® >

Panel Highlight: Irregular Warfare Panel – Why Gray Zone Conflicts Will Become More Numerous

In 2014, Russia crossed the threshold in Ukraine. Traditional military conflict involving large scale conventional forces have predominantly given way to a hybrid warfare involving cyberattacks, information campaigns, and a variety of other non-violent tactics. The world’s far more brazen autocracies are challenging the established international order and competing with the United States and its Allies. State and non-state actors are increasingly pursuing their national objectives in a little-understood arena: the so-called “gray zone” between peace and open conflict. Examples include Russia’s use of “little green men” in Crimea, Wagner group activities in Africa and Syria, China’s coercive use of economics through its Belt and Road Initiative, and their “little blue men” or maritime militia in disputed island chains. We are witnessing Russian state propaganda aggressively rallying its population to continue its brutal and unnecessary war in Ukraine. The Department of Defense has charged USSOCOM as the proponent for Irregular Warfare.

This panel will examine several case studies of new and emerging challenges, how the department and USSOCOM is evolving to compete globally, and how we must think differently about Irregular Warfare and Gray Zone conflicts through a policy and strategy lens.

Alien Gear Holsters Announce the New Rapid Force LVL 2 Slim Holster

Alien Gear Holsters® Announce the New Rapid Force™ LVL 2 Slim Holster

Alien Gear Holsters® newest on-duty/off-duty Outside the Waistband (OWB) holster with Level 2 retention and slim minimalistic design makes it the optimal concealable holster.

Post Falls, Idaho (September 2022)Alien Gear Holsters®, designers and manufacturers of American-made holsters and firearms accessories, and the Rapid Force™ line of Level 2 and Level 3 Duty Holsters, proudly introduce the LVL 2 Slim Holster.

The Rapid Force on-duty/off-duty Level 2 retention holster mounts outside the waistband via the Alien Gear Paddle or Locking Belt Slide. Made from Alien Gear Holster’s proprietary blend of polymer, it is lighter, stronger, and more heat resistant than Kydex-type holsters.

The super slim, minimalistic design makes it the perfect holster for detective’s, special agents, executive security operators, or unmarked/training assignments. It is protected with a level 2 thumb swipe mechanism built to be consistent with the level 3 duty holster’s intuitive draw. With its slim design, it is easily concealed under loose fitting clothing and ideal for OWB carry. Because it is compatible with all Rapid Force expansions and the “Quick Detach” system, it can be expeditiously swapped for your level 3 duty holster when necessary.

The LVL 2 Slim Holster accommodates suppressor height sights of 0.475-inches and the optic cut is compatible with all standard optic mounting plates (will not work with optics that extend past the front of the optic mount). The mounting platforms include the Alien Gear Paddle and the new Locking Belt Slide. The Locking Belt slide allows the user to easily clip the holster to a belt and utilizing the locking system, keep the holster from moving on the belt whether due to extreme physical movement or close confrontations. The holster maintains its position on the belt until the user unlocks and removes it.

“The new Alien Gear Rapid Force LVL 2 Slim Holster is designed with plainclothes officers in mind, whether on duty or off,” Joe Lienemann, Director of LE Sales for Alien Gear Holsters, commented. “It provides the same maximum safety with no compromise on performance as our other Rapid Force Duty Holsters, but allows officers and security professionals to safely carry concealed.”

The optional Quick Disconnect System (QDS) allows the user to switch the holster from one carry configuration to another, quickly and easily, without tools. Made in the USA, the Rapid Force Duty Holster comes with a 30-day field test drive and a three-year full manufacturer warranty. It is available for GLOCK, Smith & Wesson, and SIG Sauer model handguns. MSRP starts at $73.88 (no light) and $79.88 (with light) on the Standard Paddle LVL 2 Slim Holster and on the Locking Belt Slide with QDS its $108.88 (no light) and $114.88 (with light).

Big Horn Armory (BHA) Announces Ray Livingston as Newest Brand Ambassador

Big Horn Armory (BHA) Announces Ray Livingston as Newest Brand Ambassador

Ray Livingston will be using the BHA Model 90 in .460 S&W Magnum and the AR500 in 500 Auto Max in the upcoming season of a popular outdoors-centric television show.

Cody, Wyo. (September 2022)Big Horn Armory (BHA), makers of big-bore firearms, is pleased to welcome Ray Livingston as its newest brand ambassador. Livingston will be utilizing the BHA Model 90 in .460 S&W Magnum and the AR500 in 500 Auto Max as part of the partnership. A lifelong outdoorsman, Livingston is a current hunting guide for Upfront Outfitters, a mentor for the First Hunt Foundation, and the newest cast member of a popular outdoors-centric television show (to be announced) which will begin filming its latest season this October.

“I’m excited to partner with Big Horn Armory and am looking forward to using the Model 90 and AR500 in my upcoming hunts. As both a hunter and survivalist, I look at my firearms like a golfer looks at their golf clubs. While you can get through a golf course with a 5 iron, there’s the best club for each set of conditions the golfer or hunter is faced with. As I consider any new firearms I purchase, I do so intending to have a ‘golf bag’ versatile enough to hunt anything, anywhere,” commented Livingston.

“Our partnership with Ray will help to show a broader audience the power and effectiveness of our big bore lever action rifles and AR firearms. We are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Ray and can’t wait to see him on our TV screen,” remarked Greg Buchel, President and Owner of BHA.

Livingston was born in inner-city Portland, Oregon, and grew up in the city until his family relocated to rural Gresham when he was in middle school. It was here that he developed his deep love for the outdoors by engaging in hunting, fishing, hiking, and other outdoor recreation. A former All-American track and field athlete from the University of Oregon, Livingston often found himself in the woods alone, which led to his desire to learn primitive survival skills so he could go even deeper into the wilderness solo.

Since then, Livingston has been a participant on History Channel’s “Alone,” National Geographic’s “Called to the Wild,” and also co-starred in “Mud, Sweat, and Beards” on The USA Network. He has recently been cast for the upcoming season of a popular outdoors focused television show (to be announced at a later date) and will be using his custom BHA Model 90 lever action rifle as his primary hunting firearm on the show.

“I already have a performance center S&W 460 Magnum revolver and am a fan of that cartridge. It made it a no-brainer to choose the Model 90 for my lever action rifle. Having a rifle and revolver that use the same caliber, from a survivalist standpoint, is attractive to me. I can use the same ammo and reloading equipment for both, which saves me both time and money,” Livingston said.

The Model 90 in .460 S&W Magnum is built from the ground up and solidly engineered using the latest CNC technology. It embodies the best of the old Model 86 and Model 92 lever action in a modern platform capable of handling the powerful .460 S&W Magnum. The rifle is manufactured with 17-4 stainless steel precision machined and properly hardened to deliver consistent downrange performances and rugged in-the-field dependability.

The stock and forend are fitted with integral front and stud rear sling swivel mounts. The pistol-grip buttstock has a one-inch recoil-taming pad. Stock and forend are given several coats of a durable synthetic satin finish. The large hunter-friendly curved lever enables ease of operation, especially with gloved hands.

The AR500 rifle is an AR rifle like no other. BHA’s groundbreaking AR500 Rifle is the most powerful AR firearm available.

About Big Horn Armory:

Big Horn Armory was founded in 2008 with the expressed intention of designing a Browning-type lever-action gun chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. The Big Horn Armory Model 89, made in America, closely follows the work of John Browning with refinements courtesy of modern metallurgy and machining capabilities. The first rifles began shipping in September of 2012 and since then, BHA has added to their big bore lineup with a Model 90 Carbine in 460 S&W, the Model 90A in 454 Casull, the Model 90B in .45 Colt, the Model 89A in 500 Linebaugh and the Model 89B in .475 Linebaugh. In 2017, Big Horn Armory took a departure from its lever-action series and developed the AR500 Auto Max, the most powerful short-range, semi-auto based on an AR .308 platform.

Introducing 25th Anniversary Editions

Henry Repeating Arms

Henry Repeating Arms Introduces Limited-Edition Rifles to Celebrate Twenty-Five Years of Gunmaking

Monday, September 26, 2022

RICE LAKE, Wis., Sept. 26, 2022 – Henry Repeating Arms, one of the country’s leading firearm manufacturers, is pleased to announce two limited-edition models celebrating the company’s twenty-fifth anniversary. Available at dealers nationwide while supplies last, the rifles pay tribute to the beginnings of Henry Repeating Arms as a company and the origins of the lever action rifle’s enduring legacy in America.

“In the gun-making business, twenty-five years makes us a new kid on the block, but I am endlessly proud of how far we have come,” said Anthony Imperato, CEO and Founder of Henry Repeating Arms. “These new rifles are not only a toast to what we do best, which is building guns, but it’s a toast to every single one of our employees and customers that have made Henry Repeating Arms a part of their lives and keeps us striving for our very best day in and day out.”

Twenty-five years ago, from a small manufacturing facility near the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, New York, Henry Repeating Arms began shipping the now world-renown model H001 Classic Lever Action .22. Since then, the company has sold more than one million of the rifles. Now, the company is introducing the 25th Anniversary edition, which features Semi Fancy genuine American walnut furniture and an engraved, nickel-plated receiver cover with 24-carat gold plated highlights. Other specifications include a tube magazine with capacity for 15 rounds of .22 Long Rifle, 17 rounds of .22 Long, or 21 rounds of .22 Short, a fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight, and a hooded blade front sight. The H001-25 is limited to 5,000 units with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,130.

Patented in 1860, Benjamin Tyler Henry’s breakthrough design for a reliable and practical lever action repeating rifle cemented itself in American history with a legacy that continues to this day. The New Original Henry Deluxe Engraved 25th Anniversary Edition is a salute to this lever action heritage with a unique touch of rosewood furniture hand-selected by Anthony Imperato.

“It was love at first sight with this rosewood, and I immediately knew we needed to do something special with it,” said Imperato. “The richness and warmth of the wood is the perfect complement to our hardened brass and polished blued steel.”

The rifle is a faithful recreation of the original patent except for more robust materials and the concessions needed to accommodate the more modern .44-40 WCF cartridge, of which the rifle can carry 13 rounds. Other features include a folding ladder rear sight, a brass blade front sight, a hardened brass crescent buttplate with a period-correct storage compartment, and near full coverage engraving on the hardened brass receiver flats. The H011D-25 New Original Henry Deluxe Engraved 25th Anniversary Edition is limited to only 2,500 units with an MSRP of $3,990.

GMT™ Guarantee:

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.

GA-ASI Continues Work with Conflux in Additive Manufacturing

clip_image001


GA-ASI CONTINUES WORK WITH CONFLUX IN ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

UAS Leader Partners with Australian Supplier on Fuel Oil Heat Exchanger for MQ-9B

SAN DIEGO – 26 September 2022 – General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. (GA-ASI) is working with long-time collaborator Conflux Technology on the design and manufacture of a new Fuel Oil Heat Exchanger (FOHE) for the MQ-9B. GA-ASI is developing this enhanced thermal solution for its MQ-9B SkyGuardian® and SeaGuardian® Remotely Piloted Aircraft.

GA-ASI is a leading developer of unmanned aircraft, and Conflux is a thermal management system solution company headquartered in Australia. Conflux is a pioneer in mastering Additive Manufacturing (AM) for heat exchanger applications. The two companies have worked together since 2018 to develop heat exchangers for aerospace.

“GA-ASI wants to optimize and augment the performance of our current units by minimizing the differential pressure across the FOHE,” said Stephen Eiting, vice president of Manufacturing Operations for GA-ASI. “We want to maximize the overall heat extraction capacity, while looking for opportunities to lower the mass and volume of the FOHE.”

Another GA-ASI objective is to develop an AM heat exchanger design that can be 3D printed, post-processed, and bench-tested. As part of this most recent purchase order, Conflux will produce a fully functional prototype unit that can be tested by GA-ASI.

“Our mission is transforming heat exchanger performance. For our project with GA-ASI this means drop-in replacements that remove thermal load and maintaining a compact profile, while also increasing performance to meet higher system demand. When you are leading the charge on advanced technology, you need a world class team and agility to do it right. This is where Conflux comes in,” said Abe Masoud, Business Development Manager – North America.

The two companies have worked on four different AM projects since 2018. Most recently the two teams have leveraged AM to develop a cold plate heat exchanger (HX) that provides additional cooling capacity for its high-dissipation Line-Replaceable Unit (LRU) used in various GA-ASI’s UAS platforms.

About GA-ASI

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI), an affiliate of General Atomics, is a leading designer and manufacturer of proven, reliable remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) systems, radars, and electro-optic and related mission systems, including the Predator® RPA series and the Lynx® Multi-mode Radar.

GATORZ Eyewear Adds Cerakote to Marauder Ballistic Line

GATORZ Adds Cerakote® Colors to Marauder Ballistic Line

Yuma, AZ– (September 2022) – With the huge popularity of its new frame, The Marauder, GATORZ is elevating this new collection, and adding to its ANSI Z87.1/ MILSPEC Ballistic options with sought-after Cerakote® colors. With the new launch of the Marauder frames in August, GATORZ took the opportunity to quickly add colored Cerakote® options to the already admired ANSI Z87.1/ MILSPEC Ballistic frames, giving an entirely new look to the ballistic Marauder frame.

Developed with thinner temples than most ballistic eyewear, the Marauder offers the protection of a wrap frame, with uncompromised peripherals. This frame was built with a wider set frame and larger, polycarbonate lenses, giving a new look to the ANSI Z87.1 and MILSPEC Ballistic-rated GATORZ eyewear lineup.

Tan Cerakote® Frame

Gunmetal Cerakote® Frame

OD Green Cerakote® Frame

ANSI Z87.1/MILSPEC Ballistic options are available in Black Cerakote® with smoked, clear and multi-purpose Inferno (photochromic) lenses, which keep your eyes protected in changing environments. This new addition adds Tan, Gunmetal and OD Green Cerakote® frame options with smoke lenses, which heightens true color perception, and minimizes glare. The Ceramic Cerakote® finish offers a unique matte finish look, while also enhancing the physical components of the frame, including added durability and wear and tear.

Built to the GATORZ standard of performance and reliability, the Marauder frames, like the rest of the GATORZ frames, are American-made, and backed by a lifetime frame warranty, and 30-day no hassle return policy. GATORZ frames are built from lightweight, durable, aircraft-grade billet 7075-T6 aluminum, accompanied by impact resistant polycarbonate lenses, and designed to provide excellent coverage. Both the frame and the nosepiece fully adjust to you, and not the other way around.

To learn more about the new Cerakote® Marauder ballistic frames, and to see all the available lenses/frames, go to www.gatorz.com/pages/Marauder

1-of-1 Henry Rifle Sells For Over $25,000

Henry Repeating Arms

Henry Repeating Arms Donations Exceed $50,000 for Shadow Warriors Project

Mark Geist & Anthony Imperato

One-Of-A-Kind Henry Rifle Sold at Auction for Over $25,000

RICE LAKE, Wis., Sept. 22, 2022 – Following an annual fundraising gala in Miami, Florida, and the conclusion of an online auction for a one-of-one rifle designed, built, and donated by Henry Repeating Arms, the company is pleased to announce a total figure raised in the amount of $52,175 to benefit Shadow Warriors Project. The non-profit organization is the only one of its kind providing post-engagement support for injured private military security contractors returning home from battle in some of the world’s most hostile locations.

Shadow Warriors Project was co-founded by Mark “Oz” Geist, a member of the CIA Annex Security Team that found itself the target of a terrorist attack on September 11, 2012, in Benghazi, Libya, where he is credited with saving the lives of more than 25 Americans. On the tenth anniversary of these attacks, Shadow Warriors Project held its first annual ‘Honor The Brave’ fundraising gala in Miami, Florida, where Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato presented Geist with a check for $25,000 to enhance their mission. Throughout the evening, three more donated Henry Repeating Arms rifles raised $2,150 from silent auctions.

Recently, an online auction concluded for one of the most exclusive rifles ever built in Henry Repeating Arm’s 25-year history. Based on the 1860 patent for the first successful and practical repeating rifle, Henry Repeating Arms’ one-off rifle featured hand-chased engraving on a hardened brass receiver and a buttstock made from rare exhibition-grade American walnut wood. The engraving work included the Shadow Warriors Project logo on one side and the Seal of the President of the United States on the opposite. The virtual hammer dropped with a winning bid of $25,025, which goes to Shadow Warriors Project.

“We are thrilled with the auction results, and to anyone that placed a bid or helped to spread the word, I thank you sincerely,” said Imperato. “For sure, it’s a feather in our cap to have a rifle sell for so much, but it’s also a testament to Mark, his organization’s great work, and the unsung, under-the-radar group of men and women that Shadow Warriors Project is so dedicated to supporting. Everyone involved should be proud of what has been accomplished so far.”

“We are excited to partner with our friends at Mossy Oak on this new offering,” said Jason Lonsberry, CEO, APEX Ammunition. “This load comes in a box featuring the Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat camo pattern and offers hunters a new combination of shot sizes with deep penetration and lethal energy transfer.”

“Mossy Oak is excited to partner with APEX, one of the most reputable ammo manufacturers, to offer waterfowl hunters the Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend that brings the best of both worlds for waterfowl ammo into one shell,” said Chris Paradise, Chief Sales Officer of Mossy Oak.

The Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend is available for purchase through the APEX Store, Mack’s Prairie Wings, and Rogers Sporting Goods.

MSRP: $51.99 (per 25 round box) or $489.99 (per case -10 boxes)
