Nikon Debuts BLACK Riflescope Series

Nikon doubles down on its commitment to American shooters with the introduction of the new BLACK riflescope series-a new category of dedicated optics with models engineered for both precision long-range rifle and action-shooting AR enthusiasts.
For the precision rifle shooter, Nikon’s BLACK X1000 is offered in a range of 4-16×50 and 6-24×50 models with X-MRAD or X-MOA tactical-style reticles synchronized to elevated windage and elevation turrets. Accurate and repeatable, the adjustments enable precise dialing of elevation come ups and wind compensation, while each of the new reticle designs present the shooter with a visually clean, yet highly functional and advanced tool for estimating range or maintaining holdovers.

SpeedForce Reticle
Shooters looking for rapid-action targeting capability with AR/MSR platforms can rely on the new BLACK FORCE1000 1-4×24 riflescope with capped turrets and SpeedForce reticle.  When the riflescope is dialed down to its true 1x magnification, the reticle’s illuminated double horseshoe center portion serves as quick reference for reaction-speed target acquisition and engagement, as well as for establishing moving target leads.  The SpeedForce MOA reticle also integrates BDC circles and hash marks for precise intermediate-range target holdovers.

The new BLACK series reticles can be applied to virtually any shooting application, regardless of caliber or ballistic performance and can be further optimized for specific shooting situations utilizing Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.
BLACK series riflescopes all feature a 30mm main body tube built with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and Type 3 hard anodizing, providing exceptional ruggedness and optimum strength-to-weight ratios. Each riflescope has an optical system built from Nikon’s lead- and arsenic-free glass Eco-Glass, which is optimized with the company’s full multilayer coating on all air-to-glass lens surfaces.  Spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets provide precise, repeatable corrections on all BLACK riflescope models.  And like all Nikon riflescopes, the new BLACK series is backed by the company’s No Fault policy for repair or replacement.
Nikon’s new BLACK riflescope series will be available Spring 2017, with the full range of models shown here:

Frontier Tactical Announces New FT-15 Rifles

Frontier Tactical, a disabled veteran owned company, is a manufacturer bringing innovation and modularity to the already market-proven AR-15 platform, “Departing from the Known.”
Frontier Tactical launches the FT-15 series receivers and complete rifles.

The FT-15 is the continuing evolution of the Frontier Tactical product development in the firearms industry. Frontier Tactical introduces the solution for the shooter looking for the newest, breakout technology in firearms. Offered in two configurations, it is sure to change the way many people think about modular weapon platforms.

The FT-15 Entry Carbine was designed for the AR-15 shooter. It is an optic-ready, dedicated entry level AR-15 that includes a few upgrades, but leaves the AR-15 ready for further modification. The lower receiver is marked “MULTI CAL” and is a semi-auto AR-15. It is the base model for future multiple caliber builds.

The FT-15 War Lock™ Entry Carbine is the upgraded version, and comes equipped with the War Lock™ Multiple Caliber System installed from the factory. No additional assembly is required.

Both versions come with 7075-T6 forged receivers and offer an enlarged ejection port, allowing cycling of the largest caliber cartridges available for the AR-15 platform (.450 Bushmaster, .458 SOCOM and .50 Beowulf).

The heart of this modular weapon platform is the War Lock Multiple Caliber System. The War Lock replaces the barrel nut on an AR-15. Once installed, the AR-15 is modularly capable of firing over 90 calibers by changing simple components (barrel assembly, bolt, magazine, etc). After initial installation, it requires no tools and caliber changes happen in seconds.

The FT-15 stripped upper and lower receivers are also being released at this time.

Ruger Expands the Popular LCRx Line with the Addition of the .357 Magnum

Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to announce a new Ruger® LCRx® 5-round revolver chambered in the hard-hitting .357 Magnum cartridge. This durable and reliable revolver is equipped with a 1.87″ barrel and features an exposed hammer that allows it to be fired in either double-action or single-action mode.

When it was originally introduced, the Ruger LCR® was one of the most significant new revolver designs in over a century and has since been awarded three patents. The new LCRx in .357 Magnum maintains all the features of the original LCR, including Ruger’s patented friction-reducing cam, a next-generation design in fire control systems that results in a smooth, non-stacking trigger pull. The double-action trigger pull force on the LCR builds gradually and peaks later in the trigger stroke, resulting in better control and a lighter felt trigger pull. The LCRx also incorporates crisp single-action functionality for precise shooting.

The LCRx is equipped with an integral u-notch rear sight and a pinned, white ramp front sight for quick target acquisition. The Hogue® Tamer™ Monogrip® with finger grooves provides outstanding control under recoil. The LCRx chambered in .357 Magnum has three main components: a polymer fire control housing, a stainless steel monolithic cylinder frame and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder.

In addition to this new model, the LCRx is available in .38 Spl +P with both 1.87 inch and 3 inch barrels. The original design LCR double-action-only model is available in .38 Spl +P, .357 Magnum, .327 Federal Magnum, 9mm Luger, .22 WMR and .22 LR.

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.

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.
