Trijicon 1-8×28 AccuPower LED Riflescope

Trijicon has created another Brilliant Aiming Solution™ with the introduction of the new 1-8x 28mm AccuPower riflescope. The latest model of the newly introduced AccuPower series is destined to become an immediate success, offering the ultimate in versatility, durability and function for a variety of applications.

Packed with features for the serious shooter, Trijicon’s new 1-8x AccuPower is built around a first focal plane reticle to enhance speed and accuracy. Users enjoy superior optical clarity and brightness with Trijicon’s multi-coated broadband anti-reflective glass. An increased exit pupil delivers better light transmission through the 34mm tube with a true one (1) power setting and a full eight (8) power at maximum using an integrated zoom ring and optional extender. Knobs are locking and resettable without the use of tools. Graduated in .25 MOA or 0.1 mils, the 100 MOA (29.6 MIL) adjustment range provides users with control and accuracy without the need of tools. Available in either red or green illumination, the control knob with aggressive knurling on the left side of the scope offers 11 settings with an “off” setting in between each. Powered by a single CR2032 lithium battery, the battery can be easily replaced without tools.

Two new reticles have been added, the Segmented Circle in either MIL or MOA. Each is in the 1st focal plane and allows subtensions and drops to remain true at any magnification, allowing the shooter to quickly and accurately apply the correct hold while the segmented circle allows for unparalleled use at CQB ranges.

Compact enough for any AR, hunting rifle, or carbine it provides a power range meeting most any practical need. Whether on the field of battle, competition, or the mean streets the 1-8 power is just about perfect. Either the MOA or MIL Segmented Circle reticle make it easy to range, hold, and place accurate shots on target. Optical clarity, rugged construction, and intuitive features make this the most versatile scope you will ever own. Trijicon’s unparalleled strength, commitment to excellence, and customer service make it the perfect choice.

LaserMax announces GripSense Activation Technology

The new activation technology from LaserMax is coined GripSense™ and offers users dual activation choices via instant on with capacitive touch or button controlled activation.

“Offering consumers the ability to choose between modes of button activation or GripSense activation is really incredible” said Chris Tinkle, Chief Sales Officer for LaserMax. “Our GripSense Technology is a safe and tactically sound instant on capability that consumers have desired for years, while still providing the ability to have controlled activation.”

The Patent Pending GripSense Technology utilizes similar capacitive sensing technology to smartphones, in that the product contains a detection zone in the area that users middle finger indexes the trigger guard of the firearm and senses the user’s grip on the firearm and activates the light or laser instantly. The user has the option to turn off the light or laser with the push of a button or disable the GripSense Activation and rely solely on the button activation.

“I am very proud of our team and excited to see the market’s reaction to our new GripSense Technology,” said Chris Tinkle. He added, “Our team has been very careful to work on an ‘instant on’ solution for laser aiming devices. We challenged our Engineering team to develop a solution that met customer demand while ensuring that the product doesn’t comprise proper doctrinal use of laser aiming devices in law enforcement or self-defense use cases. Our team delivered an incredible solution in GripSense Technology.”

LaserMax released its GripSense technology at distributor shows last week and plans a full debut at the 2017 Shot Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 17, 2017.

Triggersafe

Triggersafe is a unique, innovative, patent pending device designed to safely and completely cover the trigger of AR-15 rifles made entirely in the United States. It was designed to help avoid negligent discharges, when we do not have positive control of the rifle that can occur during training, range time, dry handling, transportation or storage. Triggersafe is inexpensive, quick and easy to use by snapping on or off the trigger guard of AR-15 platforms in a second or less, providing security for the rifle professional. Triggersafe is in use by Indianapolis PD SWAT, Indiana State SWAT, other departments, trainers and citizens in 25 states around this great country.

It appears to me that the Triggersafe is akin to a kydex pistol holster, effectively covering the trigger to prevent discharge of the firearm when not in use. Looks like this could be a great way to make your rifle safe when competing or in the field until ready to fire.

Smith & Wesson M&P® M2.0™ Pistol

Designed for personal, sporting, and professional use, the M&P M2.0 pistol delivers an entirely new platform, introducing innovative features in nearly every aspect of the pistol, including the trigger, grip, frame, and finish.

James Debney, President and CEO of American Outdoor Brands Corporation, the parent company of Smith & Wesson Corp., said, “When we launched the first M&P polymer pistols over 10 years ago, they were a game changer for the company. Since that time, we have clearly established M&P as a leading firearm brand and built an incredibly strong family of products around it, including the market leading M&P Shield® pistols. Now, with a decade of experience under our belts, we are very excited and proud to reveal our next generation M&P pistol – the M&P M2.0. We expect this completely new product platform to clearly differentiate us from the competition and take significant share in the handgun market. Today, we are launching the 9mm, 40S&W and .45 Auto versions of our full-size design, but stay tuned for multiple new product additions and line extensions in 2017 that will establish a completely new family based on this platform. This is a key strategic milestone in achieving our vision for the Firearms Division, which is ‘To be the leading firearms manufacturer’.”

Matt Buckingham, President of the Firearms Division, said, “Our goal is to continually strengthen and grow our leadership position in firearms by meeting and then exceeding the needs, wants, and desires of the consumer. With this goal always in our minds, the new product development team at Smith & Wesson tapped into more than a decade of M&P experience, performance data, and candid feedback from professional users when designing the M&P M2.0 Pistol – and it shows. When you pick up this pistol, the first thing you’ll notice is an extraordinary grip that feels great in the hand – and that’s just the beginning. From the grip, to the new aggressive texture, to the crisp trigger and audible reset, this pistol feels and fires like a next-generation model should – and more. This is clearly one of the most advanced production pistols on the market today, and we believe it is the pistol that consumers have been waiting for. The M&P M2.0 in 9mm and 40 caliber versions is in stock at our distributor partners and is shipping today.”

Highlights of the M&P M2.0 pistol include an extended stainless-steel chassis and high grip to barrel bore axis ratio for reduced muzzle rise and faster aim recovery. The M&P M2.0 pistol further improves performance with a fine-tuned, crisper trigger, lighter pull, and a tactile and audible reset. The pistol, available in three calibers, includes an aggressively-textured grip and four interchangeable palmswell inserts for optimal hand-fit and trigger reach. The M&P M2.0 is an ideal pistol for all shooters in all conditions.

IWI US’ X95 Wins 2017 Golden Bullseye Award for Rifle of the Year from Shooting Illustrated

IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., is proud to announce that Shooting Illustrated Magazine has chosen the TAVOR X95 for the 2017 Golden Bullseye Award for Rifle of the Year. Shooting Illustrated is the National Rifle Association’s newest official journal with a focus on concealed carry, self-defense and tactical shooting.

“I determined the X95 is The Answer. The Answer to what question(s), you ask? The questions that have plagued security services the world over: How can we combine the range and power of a rifle round in a platform small enough to easily maneuver in and out of vehicles, maintain a low profile in urban areas, fit both males and females for multiple missions, be reliable and remain within sensible budgets? In the X95, all of those requirements are met with aplomb,” remarked Ed Friedman, editor-in-chief of Shooting Illustrated, in his written review of the X95.

The annual Golden Bullseye Awards will be presented at the invitation-only breakfast during the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta, Georgia. To be considered for a Golden Bullseye Award the TAVOR X95 was tested and reviewed by the publication’s staff and found to represent the finest quality in a shooting sports product that exceeded not only the reviewer’s expectations but also its customers.

“The entire IWI team is extremely pleased to accept this coveted award,” Michael Kassnar, VP of sales and marketing for IWI US stated. “This award reflects the commitment IWI US has to place the highest quality product into the customer’s hands and to back that product with exemplary customer service.”
