Ammo Incorporated Releases STREAK Visual Ammunition

AMMO, Inc. (POWW), a technology leader and premier American ammunitions manufacturer, today announced its newest product offering, STREAK Visual Ammunition. AMMO, Inc. holds the exclusive worldwide rights for the incredible patented technology used to make the STREAK products. STREAK is one of the most technologically advanced ammunition to hit the market in decades.

“We are beyond excited to bring STREAK Visual Ammunition to the market. Our acquisition of the exclusive rights for the STREAK technology is a game changer for both our company as well as the shooting industry. Once you shoot with STREAK and you can actually see your projectile travel throughout its path, you will be bored by shooting normal ammunition”, said AMMO, Inc.’s CEO, Fred Wagenhals.

Unlike conventional tracers, STREAK rounds are NOT incendiary, they don’t use burning metals to generate light. Replacing fire-hazard burning metals is non-flammable phosphor material that utilizes the light emitted during the discharging of the round to make STREAK glow. STREAK does NOT generate heat, making STREAK rounds safe to use in environments where traditional tracers are prohibited and can be a serious fire hazard.

The results are game changing in many aspects for the consumer, law enforcement and military.

The glowing material used is applied only to the aft end of the projectile, making it only visible to the shooter and those within a 30-degree viewing window. Military and law enforcement appreciate that unlike conventional tracers STREAK’s glow is not visible to the target.

STREAK ammunition is currently available in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. The STREAK line will expand to include hollow points, a wider range of calibers and will be available in both red and yellow/green colors.

Safes Open Without Combination

One of Amazon’s top-selling electronic gun safes contains a critical vulnerability that allows it to be opened by virtually anyone, even when they don’t know the password.

The Vaultek VT20i handgun safe, ranked fourth in Amazon’s gun safes and cabinets category, allows owners to electronically open the door using a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone app. The remote unlock feature is supposed to work only when someone knows the four- to eight-digit personal identification number used to lock the device. But it turns out that this PIN safeguard can be bypassed using a standard computer and a small amount of programming know-how.

As the video demonstration below shows, researchers with security firm Two Six Labs were able to open a VT20i safe in a matter of seconds by using their MacBook Pro to send specially designed Bluetooth data while it was in range. The feat required no knowledge of the unlock PIN or any advanced scanning of the vulnerable safe. The hack works reliably even when the PIN is changed. All that’s required to make it work is that the safe have Bluetooth connectivity turned on.

Gunwerks Announces the Release of the GRB Bolt Rifle Action

Custom rifle manufacturer Gunwerks announced today that it will release the GRB bolt rifle action for the first time to the general public.

The GRB action is a complete ground-up bolt rifle action with a Remington 700 footprint, compatible with most Remington 700 inletted stocks. The 416 stainless steel body can be run unfinished or coated with a number of firearm coatings including Cerakote. Gunwerks’ proprietary Tri-Lock recoil lug provides the benefit of an integral lug action in a far more affordable package. The GRB action will be available at a similar price to a blueprinted factory action, but with many features of a premium custom action.

The action includes customer’s choice of a one or two-piece picatinny base with integrated 20 or 30 MOA, and will be available in right and left hand (limited left hand availability), short and long action, and standard or magnum bolt faces.

“So many have followed us for years with the dreams of someday owning a Gunwerks rifle. We challenged our engineering team to design an action that could be manufactured and sold as an affordable component without sacrificing the quality and performance we’re known for.” said Aaron Davidson, Gunwerks founder and CEO. “What resulted is the GRB action—an action with many features of our top dollar custom action less a few of the most expensive features. Finally, a product that makes our legendary design and engineering available in the form of an action platform that anyone can use for their next custom gun build.”

The Gunwerks GRB Action is available immediately via Gunwerks direct and in coming weeks through Gunwerks’ network of dealers.
