Limitless Gear has a new M4-style magazine carrier with a quick-release MOLLE attachment system that is worth checking out.

The OPFOR 30-round magazine carrier features the Rapidly Scalable Equipment Ensemble that allows you to “mount and dismount the OPFOR from 2×2 MOLLE/PALs surfaces in seconds,” Limitless Gear officials maintain.

The OPFOR also features a lidless Positive Magazine Retention system. Magazines are automatically locked in place just like in your weapons magazine well and can be quickly and easily withdrawn from the OPFOR by applying a simple twist and pull. This eliminates the need for flaps or bungee cords that prevent access to your next magazine, company officials say.

sandman-sDead Air Armaments recently launched its new, 7.62mm Sandman suppressor line.

The Sandman-S, Sandman-L and Sandman Ti models feature baffles constructed from 100% Stellite, a material that’s more costly than traditional stainless steel, but offers better performance under extreme conditions and usage than Inconel, DAA officials maintain.

Sandman tubes are made from high performance precipitation hardened stainless steel, making the Sandman series lightweight with no sacrifice on strength.

The 7.62 Sandman-S delivers performance in a small package. The “S” stands for short, measuring in at 6.8 inches in length with a weight of 17.3 oz., making it the perfect cross-over can for 5.56mm, 300BLK and 7.62 platforms.

The QD system features easy one hand removal in mere seconds without the wobble or seizing that can often times affect performance.

As an innovative 7.62 design first, the front cap is detachable and features an integrated flash hider. This affords better performance, particularly in low light conditions. The detachable front cap also provides some level of insurance when that “accident at the range” happens and the can gets dropped or abused. The front cap can be replaced trouble free without the need of sending it back for time consuming repairs.

I just put up a story on Military.com about a new Army program dubbed the Rapid Adaptive Zoom for Assault Rifles, or RAZAR scope. It was developed by a former Special Forces officer so shooters can zoom in and out on short and long-range targets far faster than they can with traditional rifle-scope technology.

The RAZAR uses what’s known as adaptive-zoom technology.

Unlike traditional optical zoom, “adaptive zoom changes the focal lengths of two or more lenses by varying the curvature of the lenses’ surfaces to provide optical zoom without changing their overall positions relative to one another. This allows the user to view either a wide-angle image or zoom in on an area of interest with a compact, low-power system.”

“The impetus behind the idea of push-button zoom is you can acquire what you’re interested in at low magnification and – without getting lost – zoom in for more clarity,” said RAZAR developer Brett Bagwell, now an optical engineer with Sandia National Laboratories.

Daniel Defense just released an upgrade to its popular Aimpoint Micro Mount.

The Aimpoint Micro Mount (Absolute Co-witness) users the option of both an absolute or lower 1/3rd co-witness with iron sights and Aimpoint’s popular Micro R-1, H-1, T-1, or T-2 optics.

“In the early years, we earned the reputation of being a rails & accessories company,” said Marty Daniel, the president and CEO for Daniel Defense. “It remains a core element of our business, and this upgrade to the Aimpoint mount demonstrates our ability to take a proven product and elevate it to the next level.”

The improved mount features our Patented Rock & Lock attachment system and secures to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail with two slotted machine screws.

These fasteners thread into stainless steel self-locking threaded inserts that resist vibration and loosening. Offering absolute or a lower 1/3rd co-witness with your back-up iron sights, this mount is ideal for shooters who are looking for the lightest mount to accent their Aimpoint Micro, Daniel Defense officials officials maintain.

If you haven’t heard about this, it’s a pretty interesting story. A Navy intelligence officer illegally diverted nearly $2 million in government funds to his boss’s brother under a secret, illegitimate contract to build hundreds of untraceable rifle suppressors, according to prosecutors in a trial that began recently.

“In opening trial statements in Alexandria, Va., prosecutors said the defendant, Navy civilian Lee Hall of Sterling, had no authority to buy weapons and that the real reason for the contract was to bail out his boss’s brother, who prosecutors said had a failing race-car business.”

Beretta ARX Carbine with T Worx Intelligent RailBeretta USA and T. Worx Ventures brought its integrated ARX carbine/Intelligent Rail to the Army’s AUSA conference this week after unveiling it over the summer at the Eurosatory Defense Expo in Paris.

The rail offers power and data contact points allowing an integrated carbine to power electronic accessories and communication nodes.

Berretta USA and T. Worx have worked together integrating the  T. Worx’s rail to the ARX carbine since 2013 following a multi-year assessment, Beretta officials said. Don McLaughlin, CEO of T. Worx Ventures, said the companies have received quite a bit of attention since unveiling the rail in Paris.

McLaughlin said the new rail “saves weight, provides better power access, increases access efficiency and it provides inter-accessory communications capability.”

The most important development in this new sight however, is enhanced optical performance, Aimpoint officials maintain.
