Montreal, Quebec (September 9, 2019) – Revision—the world leader in innovative head protection systems and soldier solutions—has been selected by the Dutch Ministry of Defence (MoD) to supply Batlskin Viper® P6N helmet systems for Dutch Military Forces. The contract for delivery of approximately 48,800 combat helmets was awarded on a full and open competition basis to Revision. Additionally, a 15-year maintenance and support agreement was established, with an estimated completion date of 2034. The bespoke helmet system, developed to the Dutch MoD’s rigorous performance standards and weight requirements, represents the first major advancement in helmet technology for Dutch Military Forces in over 20 years.

“We are extremely proud of the helmet suite that we developed for the Dutch MoD,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision. “Our experienced team of engineers and designers worked with the latest materials to build a user-centric system that offers better protection, optimized fit, reduced weight, and enhanced integration options. Combined, these features ultimately lead to improved operational effectiveness for the soldier. The Dutch MoD’s move to Revision’s Viper P6N system follows the trend started by Denmark and the United Kingdom to upgrade their programs to Revision’s next generation helmets and we expect other NATO countries will follow suit. Our continued investment in cutting-edge materials and efficient, high-volume manufacturing processes cement Revision’s position to meet the growing global demand for customized advanced military helmet systems.”

“The current version [Dutch helmet] dates from the early 1990s and is in urgent need of replacement,” said the Dutch project lead quoted in DMO Magazine, Materieel Gezien (volume 06, 2019). “The helmet from Revision Military was the best in the tests. Among other things, the helmets received the highest rating from the users in the test group.”

The Viper P6N helmet was developed to the exacting standards set by the Dutch MoD, and was selected in part after extensive user trials – proving that Revision’s helmets are chosen by end-users due to comfort, integration and weight. The Viper P6N helmet shell utilized advanced materials (including Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene – UHMWPE) and processes to exceed high protection standards in a lightweight, adaptable and comfortable system. More than 55,000 helmet covers in the new Dutch camouflage, “Netherlands Fractal Pattern” will be supplied in green, tan and white, and all systems will include Revision’s best-in-class APEX Liner system that is infinitely customizable for ultimate comfort and impact protection. Additional accessories include lightweight skeletonized accessory rails and the Wilcox® L4 Shroud. Revision will begin delivering helmet systems to the Dutch MoD later this year.

Meopta’s Optika6 Riflescope and Optika HD Binocular Win Outdoor Life Magazine Great Buy Awards

 

5-30x56 RD FFP 1,

 

TAMPA, FL, September 9, 2019 – Meopta’s new Optika6 5-30×56 riflescope and Optika HD 10×42 binocular have won Outdoor Lifemagazine’s 2019 Great Buy Awards in their respective categories.

The Meopta Optika6 5-30×56 was named Great Buy in the precision riflescope category. This new Opitka6 line of premium riflescopes is available in numerous Shooting and Hunting models with multiple reticle options in the first and second focal planes.  Here is some of what the test team had to say about the Optika6 5-30×56: “…excellent image quality and good low-light performance, tactile exposed turrets, and an assist lever on the magnification ring that can be screwed into any of three receivers.  And the Optika6 features a satisfying 40 mils of elevation adjustment inside the beefy 34mm tube.”

The Optika HD 10×42 binocular won Great Buy in the midsize binocular category after the Outdoor Life test team gave it perfect value scores.  The test team said, “…the Optika HD is simply a great bargain.  For $300, you get a very bright and durable hunting tool whose performance is enhanced by Meopta’s good glass and coatings.  The single-hinge, closed-bridge design is simple and durable, and testers liked the balance of the binocular, which is easy to use with one hand.  That’s an important consideration for archers whose other hand is almost always occupied with holding a bow.”

The new Optika binoculars and riflescopes are now shipping to dealers across the country.

“We are honored to win two Outdoor Life Great Buy awards and appreciate the test team’s recognition of our continued efforts to produce high-performance optics at great price points,” said Randy Garrison, Director of Meopta USA Sport Optics.  “Meopta is dedicated to delivering the highest quality and value to hunters and shooters and both of our new Optika lines do just that.”

  • Optika HD binoculars are available in two models: 8×42 ($289.95) and 10×42 ($299.95).
  • Optika6 riflescopes are priced from $499 – $899 and available in the following models:

HOWARD LEIGHT: Protect Your Hearing With Stealth and Style

 

 

Honeywell Howard Leight Impact Sport MultiCam models are ideal for hunters and tactical operators

WESTWOOD, Mass. (September 9, 2019) – Since its introduction, the Honeywell Howard LeightTM ImpactTM Sport electronic earmuff has become favored hearing protection for enthusiasts throughout the world. Impact Sport’s performance, comfort and slim, ergonomic design make it a versatile earmuff for most shooting situations and environments, including rifle, shotgun, handgun, hunting and tactical applications.

Now available in three covert MultiCam® patterns, this proven performer is even more versatile. Impact Sport MultiCam brings the advantages of stealth and concealment to hunters and tactical operators who want to protect their hearing in the field without compromising their cover.

MultiCam patterns take advantage of the way the human eye and brain perceive shape, volume and color. Since only a very small portion of the human eye perceives color, the brain does a lot of “filling in” for the eyes. The unique, high-resolution design of MultiCam causes observers to “see” the pattern as part of the background.

Ideal for turkey, elk, deer and waterfowl hunters, The MultiCam pattern was developed to effectively limit the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating across a very wide range of physical environments and seasons. After many successful evaluations, after being proven in combat, and after becoming the officially issued pattern of the US Army for all Afghanistan operations in 2010, MultiCam is the proven multi-environment concealment solution.

The MultiCam Black™ pattern was developed to meet the unique requirements of law enforcement officers operating in high-risk environments. It projects a distinctly authoritative presence appropriate for domestic operations. MultiCam Black™ is designed to complement an officer’s existing equipment and present a sharp, professional image for top-tier law enforcement units.

The MultiCam Alpine™ pattern was developed to effectively reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in snow-covered environments. An ideal choice for snow goose hunting, other late-season waterfowl hunting and predator hunting, the MultiCam Alpine™ pattern can be paired with MultiCam gear as needed to appropriately match the overall level of snow cover present.

Beneath its stealthy new aesthetics, Impact Sport’s internal circuitry allows ambient and low-frequency sounds to be safely amplified up to four times to a peak of 82dB, making it easy for wearers to hear range commands or approaching game and conduct conversation, even in noisy environments. Amplification automatically shuts off at 82dB, attenuating hazardous impulse noises from gunfire.

Impact Sport features a sleek, extremely low-profile earcup design with carefully engineered cutouts to help maintain clearance from the stock when shouldering a rifle or shotgun. Lightweight and comfortable for all-day wear, Impact Sport incorporates a padded headband with vertical height adjustments for a secure, non-slip fit. When not in use, the headband and earcups fold for easy, compact storage.

Durable, recessed microphones—one on each side—reduce wind noise while providing stereo sound. This feature—combined with MultiCam concealment options and up to 4X amplification—makes Impact Sport a great option for hunters or tactical professionals who want to stay concealed and protect their hearing in the field while also increasing their ability to hear game, people and conversation. Impact Sport is also equipped with an external 3.5mm AUX jack and an included cord for convenient connection to a phone, computer, MP3 player or scanner.

Honeywell Howard Leight Impact Sport MultiCam Electronic Earmuff Features

  • 22dB Noise Reduction Rating (NRR)
  • Automatically shuts off noise over 82dB
  • Up to 4X amplification
  • Sleek, extremely low-profile earcup design with cutout allows for clearance of firearm stock

FTSE4GOOD INDEX GRANTS INDRA THE HIGHEST SCORE IN GOOD GOVERNANCE AND ANTI CORRUPTION MEASURES

 

image

· The company’s score rose considerably in terms of anti corruption area by reinforcing its culture of compliance and the mechanisms for eradicating any unethical or irregular behavior

· This prestigious global sustainability index has for the fourth time recognized Indra’s corporate responsibility, good governance, and social and environmental performance, and the company has met all of its demanding requirements

· Other areas in which Indra scores highly are labor standards, human rights, the fight against climate change and customer relationships

Madrid, September 9 2019.- For the fourth consecutive year, Indra was included in the FTSE4Good Index Series, one of the most prestigious sustainability indexes in the world, designed to provide investors with information about the companies that comply with the best practices in the environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) fields on a global scale.

To remain in this index, Indra was assessed independently throughout the whole year on the basis of data provided by more than 300 items, and it met the demanding requirements set by FTSE4Good.

The company obtained the highest possible score, 5 points, in the fields of corporate governance and anti -corruption measures thanks to the efforts made in recent years to strengthen its culture of compliance.

Since 2015, after the change of the chairmanship and the management team, Indra has updated and reinforced its prevention system against unlawful activities by managers and employees. Among many other steps, it revised and strengthened the Code of Compliance and Ethics and the Crime Prevention Model, which are constantly being improved and for which training is continuously given; the Compliance Unit and Internal Audit function were given more independence and resources; penalties have been imposed and disciplinary measures taken when irregular activities were detected; and continuous monitoring is carried out by the Compliance and Audit Commission and the Board of Directors on this matter.

In addition to making its Code of Legal Compliance and Ethics more demanding, Indra has strengthened the knowledge about and respect for legality and all internal rules for employees, in order to eradicate any unethical or irregular behavior. Indra has also promoted the use of the Direct Channel, intended for raising any queries about the interpretation and application of the Code and the implementing regulations, as well as for reporting about any unlawful behavior, irregularity or violation that may have been detected.

The Criminal Compliance certificate, granted by the Spanish agency Aenor in accordance with the UNE Standard 19601, certifies that Indra complies with the best practices in management systems aimed at preventing crimes, reducing crime risks and promoting a law enforcement and ethical business culture, thus contributing to building trust.

Thanks to the talent management policy and the cultural change that Indra is carrying forward, based on the pillars of diversity, flexibility, training, development of professionals, and innovation, the FTSE4Good Index gave Indra an outstanding score, 4 out of 5, in the area of labor standards. Indra received the same score for its commitment to human rights, the fight against climate change and customer relationships.

Global Leader in Sustainability

Indra’s standing in the FTSE4Good Index and the good results achieved imply an acknowledgment of Indra’s commitment to sustainability and continuous improvement, of its strategy, and of its policies regarding Corporate Social Responsibility, which are well integrated in the organization and aligned with its activity and objectives.

The shareholder index series FTSE4Good, created by FTSE Russell, includes companies that prove they are leaders on the basis of their practices in the environmental, social and governance fields.

The FTSE4Good criteria are developed on the basis of an extensive consultation process in the market, and they are updated every year. These are based exclusively on data in the public domain, since FTSE Russell does not accept any data or information sent privately by companies, which contributes to higher data credibility and transparency. A wide range of interest groups helps define the admission criteria, including NGOs, government organizations, consultants, scholars, the investment community and the business sector. The index is revised twice a year, on the basis of an annual company assessment cycle.

About Indra

Indra (www.indracompany.com) is one of the leading global technology and consulting companies and the technological partner for core business operations of its customers world-wide. It is a world-leader in providing proprietary solutions in specific segments in Transport and Defense markets, and a leading firm in Digital Transformation Consultancy and Information Technologies in Spain and Latin America through its affiliate Minsait Its business model is based on a comprehensive range of proprietary products, with a high-value focus and with a high innovation component. In the 2018 financial year, Indra achieved revenue of €3.104 billion, with 43,000 employees, a local presence in 46 countries and business operations in over 140 countries.

Lock, Stock and Barrel: Ballistic Has You Covered

 

Gainesville, GA (September 4, 2019) -Like most sports, Precision Rifle Shooting takes time, practice, passion, and the right gear. If this level of long-range shooting is important to you,  make sure you add some really great and very inexpensive insurance to your shooting kit.

Make sure you add Ballistic.

Considering all the money a serious shooter spends on gear, a Ballistic Calculator like Ballistic will boost your precision for relative pennies.

Think of it this way. Basic chassis rifles being built today for PRS-style competitions cost over $1,000. Realistically, most competitors are spending at least $3,000 on their rifle alone, with the same or more expended on the rifle scope.

Ammunition? Have you thought about what each shot costs? A dollar per load or more in most cases. This is why many competitors opt for handloading their own, which is less costly than buying factory ammunition. The handloading option still requires a substantial investment in equipment and components.

And then there’s the long list of other items long-range shooters use to keep them on target, in their practice and during actual events. This can include everything from bi-pods, eye and hearing protection, range finders, binoculars and spotting scopes, to extra magazines, numerous types of shooting bags, weather and wind meters, cleaning kits tools, and…the list goes ever on and on. We’re sure you are nodding along as you read this list, checking off each and every one of these items that you own.

For much less than the cost of a decent range bag, one would be amazed at how few shooters out there use a Ballistic Calculator. Did you know that Ballistic, the World’s #1 ballistic calculator is only $15?

With Ballistic, long-range shooters and hunters are provided with the most precise calculations possible. This is why Ballistic is used by competition shooters, long-range hunters, and the military.

Those calculations begin to take form the second a shooter creates his or her Ballistic Bullet Profile. That Profile contains all the basic inputs–including the ballistic coefficient and bullet weight, sight height, and muzzle velocity, to name just a few-plus the all-important atmospheric conditions.

But Ballistic, unlike many of the apps available today, doesn’t stop there. Ballistic also provides advanced features like a Mil-Dot and MOA rangefinder with heads-up display capabilities, GPS and atmosphere awareness, full-sized shooting charts, and a reloading companion.

With Ballistic, you can also build a complete picture of the wind environment by entering up to 8 different wind variables. Put simply, the wind at your firing position is most probably different to the wind conditions at your target 600 yards away. Did you account for that updraft coming off the canyon 200 yards out? With Ballistic you did! Ballistic will automatically adjust to account for all of these variables ensuring you have the most accurate calculations possible.

All of this, and Ballistic costs less than a box of ammunition. If you are a long-range shooting competitor, don’t leave home without Ballistic!

Ballistic is the definitive ballistics trajectory calculator, intended for long-range and precision shooters who want a serious–and a seriously accurate–application. Ballistic will calculate your bullet’s trajectory, windage, velocity, energy, lead, and flight time for any valid range. The app can also compensate for atmospheric conditions such as temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, and altitude–it can even accept density of air or density altitude inputs! The world-renowned JBMBallistics engine powers all Ballistic computations. Ballistic is used by competition shooters, long-range hunters, and the military to deliver the most precise calculations possible.

With Ballistic, you’ll be able to make the most accurate calculations for every shot, everywhere, even in areas with no cellular coverage.

AirMap Demonstrates USS-to-USS Flight Plan Deconfliction in Virginia

 

To enable future complex commercial drone operations, digital UAS traffic management (UTM) solutions are needed to manage a diversity of drones and operators within the same airspace. Furthermore, as there will be multiple commercial providers of UTM services, known as UAS Service Suppliers (USS), interoperability among industry players becomes equally critical.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s UTM Pilot Program (UPP) was designed to address these issues through testing unmanned traffic management within real-world scenarios. On June 13–21, 2019, AirMap provided core UTM services for the FAA UPP trials organized at Virginia Tech’s Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership (MAAP).
For the trials, AirMap and other USS partners provided UTM services for participating drones, including flight planning and manned traffic alerts. At the same time, the USS successfully communicated with each other to share flight plans and ensure deconfliction, helping to provide a shared view of the airspace and improve overall safety and coordination.

SIG SAUER Selected by U.S. Army for Next Generation Weapons

NEWINGTON, N.H., (September 3, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the official award of a contract by the U.S. Army in the down-select process for the Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW). The award encompasses the complete SIG SAUER system consisting of 6.8mm hybrid ammunition, a lightweight machine gun, rifle, and included suppressors. SIG SAUER will provide single-source manufacturing for ammunition, weapons, and suppressors allowing for less risk and increased capability for the U.S. Army.

“The U.S. Army is leading the world in the first significant upgrade to small arms in decades to meet the growing demands of soldiers on the battlefield. We are honored to have been selected for the Next Generation Squad Weapons program bringing increased lethality to the warfighter over the legacy weapons,” began Ron Cohen, President & CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc. “At the core of our submission is our newly developed, high-pressure, 6.8mm hybrid ammunition that is utilized in both weapons, and is a significant leap forward in ammunition innovation, design, and manufacturing.”

The SIG SAUER 6.8mm hybrid ammunition is designed for increased penetration at greater distances. Cohen continued, “using patent-pending technology the SIG SAUER Ammunition division has engineered a completely new cartridge resulting in a more compact round, with increased velocity and accuracy, while delivering a substantial reduction in the weight of the ammunition.”

The primary objectives set forth by the U.S. Army for the NGSW-AR was a weapon with the firepower and range of a machine gun, coupled with the precision and ergonomics of a rifle. The SIG SAUER NGSW-AR submission is an ultra-light, medium caliber machine gun with AR ergonomics, and chambered in 6.8mm hybrid ammunition. Features include quick detach magazines, side opening feed tray, increased available 1913 rail space for night vision and enablers, folding buttstock, and suppressor.

Additionally, the Prototype Project Opportunity Notice (PPON) requirements were inclusive of an NGSW-Rifle. The SIG SAUER NGSW-Rifle submission also chambered in 6.8mm hybrid, is lightweight and features a free-floating reinforced M-LOK™ handguard, side-charging handle, fully ambidextrous controls, folding buttstock, and suppressor.

“The U.S. Army challenged the industry to bring forward significant improvements to the legacy weapons. The SIG SAUER NGSW-AR is lighter in weight, with dramatically less recoil than that currently in service, while our carbine for the NGSW-Rifle submission is built on the foundation of SIG SAUER weapons in service with the premier fighting forces across the globe. Both weapons are designed with features that will increase the capabilities of the soldier,” commented Cohen. “The final component of the SIG SAUER Next-Generation Weapons System is our suppressor, which through exhaustively researched design enhancements, reduces harmful backflow and signature.”

As outlined in the recent award issued by the U.S. Army, SIG SAUER will deliver a complete SIG SAUER system inclusive of the SIG SAUER 6.8mm hybrid ammunition, lightweight machine gun, rifle, and suppressors.

“SIG SAUER has designed the most comprehensive solution to meet the requirements of the Next Generation Squad Weapons to enhance mission effectiveness. We are looking forward to partnering with the U.S. Army throughout this process and ensuring our soldiers are equipped for the demands of the modern battlefield,” concluded Cohen.

Meprolight to Exhibit at TACCOM Canada

Visit Meprolight USA at TACCOM Canada, Sept. 6-8, 2019, Booth #337

Meprolight will display its newest products for the North American market at the second annual Tactical and Competitive Shooting Sports (TACCOM) show to be held in September in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


Or Akiva, Israel (September 2019)Meprolight®, a world leader in a variety of optic solutions from electro-optics sights, thermal sights and devices, self-illuminated sights, and innovative pistol sights, will be exhibiting at TACCOM Canada, a premier event for the tactical and competitive shooting sports community. Meprolight will share its booth with IWI, that will display its newly released Masada pistol, and other innovative firearms. TACCOM Canada will be held Sept. 6 – 8, 2019 at The International Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The largest firearms show in Canada, it features over 450 exhibitors in 100,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space and a series of Shooter Development Seminars featuring some of the top names in the competitive shooting sports, international military and security fields.

Meprolight USA will be showcasing a variety of their newest products at booth #337. Unveiled at the 2019 SHOT Show, the MEPRO FORESIGHT, the first-of-its-kind augmented weapon sight capable of projecting essential tactical data right on the transparent optical lens in real-time. Utilizing Bluetooth interface to connect with the FORESIGHT’s mobile app for Android or iPhone, the user can store up to 10 zeroing firearms profiles or user profiles, so the sight can be removed and replaced without ever having to re-zero. It also has access to a large database of reticles for tactical scenarios and to receive firmware updates and new features, as they are released to market.

The MEPRO RDS PRO V.2  electro-optical red-dot sight is the latest generation featuring an optimized combination, more brightness positions (16 brightness levels compare to four brightness levels in its predecessor), and supports both red and green aiming patterns and multiple selections of aiming patterns all through a large crystal clear, transparent display window.

The MEPRO MicroRDS, is a small, rugged, energy efficient, electro-optical red dot sight designed for handguns, shotguns, and rifles with a large display window and a clearly defined red-dot for fast target acquisition with both eyes open. The MicroRDS Kit includes a patent-pending dovetail adapter with a quick detach mechanism that allows mounting and dismounting the MicroRDS on the gun with a click of a finger.

Is the 10mm Round a Trend or Here to Stay?

Steinel Ammunition is betting on the enigmatic round with four variants, all premium performers without the big-ticket price tag.

Twinsburg, Ohio (August 2019) – Steinel Ammunition, having distinguished themselves as the champions of forgotten military rounds and persuasive big bore calibers, put their confidence in a handgun round that although had a brief period of stardom some years back, is back with a vengeance: the 10mm round.

Developed in the early 1980s by the legendary Col. Jeff Cooper, along with Thomas Dornaus and Michael Dixon of Dornaus & Dixon Enterprises, Inc., the 10mm cartridge was what a 9mm cartridge wanted to be when it grew up. The threesome sought a more powerful round than the popular 9mm Parabellum, somewhere between a .45 and a .357 magnum, while maintaining a size similarity to the 9mm for greater magazine capacity. The result was a new, more powerful cartridge and a new heavy-duty combat pistol, the Bren Ten semi-auto pistol. The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) made the round their official round in 1986, but the move was premature. The FBI’s S&W Model 1076 large framed pistols proved problematic and the FBI dropped the 10mm transitioning to another weapon and the soon to be newly minted .40 S&W round.

As a result, the 10mm never really got off the ground. It was expensive, had limited firearm platforms available and more recoil than most consumers wanted, but the idea of a more powerful round than the 9mm never really disappeared. It just went underground. Although many will argue the 10mm is too powerful for defensive use, there is a rising acceptance of the round for just that. Handgun hunters, for the most part, kept the round alive, as it was a proven performer in the field capable of dropping mid-sized whitetail and feral hogs.

As of recently, there were a few choices for 10mm pistols on the market but that has changed in the last few years, with all the big-name players now in the market. And many ammunition manufacturers are also rolling out 20-count boxes of their version of the 10mm round. Yet, ask the 10mm diehards and many of them find the off the shelf rounds lack the power and velocity which makes them less effective for ethical hunting practices. That’s where Steinel Ammunition comes in.

When Andy Steinel, president of Steinel Ammunition, and his team decide to develop a new load, resurrect a forgotten round or revamp an existing load, they do so because they’ve done their homework. Steinel utilizes his social media platforms and gun show experiences to ascertain what calibers people are talking about and asking for. The 10mm was one such caliber, but Steinel wanted to develop effective loads that gave the concealed carry person all the confidence they needed and the handgun hunter real put-down power without the high price.

Steinel Ammunition has four offerings in 10mm. For individuals that want a more powerful self-defense round, the 10mm Auto 140 gr. Solid Copper Hollow Point (SCHP) lead-free round meets the FBI standard and rocks out at 1,500 FPS. At only $22.99 a box of 20-count, you get a premium round at a price below the competition.

Putting rounds down range is great for muscle memory practice but hard on the wallet. With Steinel Ammunitions’ 10mm Auto 180 FMJ you get 50 rounds per box of highly accurate and clean shooting 10mm for any 10mm firearm. And 50-rounds of this 10mm will only set you back $27.99 per box.

Really looking for value in a 10mm round, the 10mm Auto 180 gr. JHP Golden Saber is a sure bet at only $19.99 a box of 20-count. This 10mm round has a 1,125 FPS with a 4.5” barrel.

Handgun hunters will appreciate Steinel Ammunitions’ 10mm Auto 200 gr. Hard cast round constructed of hard cast BNH22 and a truncated cone (TC). This round excels in penetration and accuracy with a velocity of 1,200 FPS in a 5” barrel. Hard to beat at $19.99 a box of 20-count.

“You have choices with our 10mm line,” Steinel summed up. “We have a projectile for hunters, conceal carry and self-defense, and target shooters, all developed in-house to give the user superior results and accuracy. One recent customer experience says it all, “I actually reloaded for 10mm. I initially bought Steinel 10mm FMJ for the new Starline brass…and to get a benchmark for my [own] loads. Now, I don’t bother. Mine were a little more accurate, but it’s no longer worth [my time]’.’”

BAWIDAMANN x OTTE GEAR x TXC ALOHA HOLSTERS
For those of you that missed out on the Aloha Holster TXC Holsters has good news for you:
Here at TXC we’re constantly trying to offer the best products and options we can. When we partnered with @abawidamann of @bawidamannblades and @ottegear to offer the Aloha (Poppies of War) pattern, we had no idea what to expect as far as demand and growth. By only offering the pattern for 3 weeks when the other partnered companies offered their Aloha pattern products much longer, we didn’t account for the new growth of people who heard about us from the pattern. This was our mistake, and it was not fair to everyone. To make things right, we will be opening orders of the Aloha pattern holsters again for 48 hours on Saturday (Aug 31st) and Sunday (Sept 1st) ONLY. We believe this is fair for everyone, giving an equal opportunity for one last exchange, while maintaining the integrity of the limited and exclusive run.

Langdon Tactical Edition Springfield Armory XD-E Now Available

LTT Logo

LTT XDE Left Final

Springfield Armory’s XD-E is the only viable DA/SA single-stack on the market.  Reliability and safety are the two major advantages of this action type, but rarely are they an option in a single-stack 9mm.  Lesser-trained shooters may struggle with learning two trigger modes, but Langdon Tactical has found a way to lessen the learning curve by enhancing the trigger and action.  Introducing the Springfield Armory XD-E Langdon Tactical Edition.

Like the Langdon Tactical Beretta 92s and PX4s, the Langdon Tactical Edition XD-E features greatly enhanced trigger feel and performance without sacrificing safety or reliability.  Improvements made by Langdon Tactical on the Springfield Armory XD-E have also further enhanced Springfield Armory’s Low Effort Slide by reducing effort needed to rack the slide and cock the hammer even further.

The Springfield Armory XD-E upgraded by LTT includes: 

LTT XDE Sight Final

  • LTT emblem engraved on Sniper Gray Cerakoted slide
  • LTT Trigger Job with the option of a 12lbs. or 12.7lbs. hammer spring
    • 20% reduction in pull weight with a 12.7 lbs. spring for reliability with US and NATO-spec ammunition.
    • 25% reduction in pull weight with a 12 lbs. spring provides reliability with US-Spec ammunition.
  • New low-profile hammer for better concealment and snag-free draws 
  • Two 8- and one 9-round magazine included.
  • Option of two different hammer spring weights. 
  • Upgraded Ameriglo CAP Sights.
  • MSRP: $738

LTT XDE Top Final
