Surefire is showing of a more powerful version of its Titan keychain light, which increases the max output from 125 lumens to 300 lumens.

“The refined, ultra-compact Titan Plus builds upon our groundbreaking Titan … by adding several useful ‘pluses,’ including more than twice the maximum output—300 lumens of flawless white light!” according to Surefire officials.

“Its high-performance LED also generates two other useful light levels with a simple twist of the head switch: 75 lumens at its medium setting and 15 lumens on low. No matter which output level you select, our proprietary faceted reflector shapes the LED’s light into wide, smooth MaxVision Beam.”

SafeTacMag,LLC has developed an training magazine for M16s and M4s, specifically designed to fire blank ammo.

“During training exercises, blank ammunition often “jams,” causing the service rifle to malfunction. … The standard-issue magazine was never designed to fire blank ammunition,” according to a recent press release. “As everyone in uniform knows, the much shorter blank ammunition cartridges simply do not feed properly from the standard magazine into the service rifle. Our blank-fire magazines feed blanks into the service rifle seamlessly without causing jams.”

SafeTacMags require no modifications to the weapon and “makes training safer because it is simply impossible to load live rounds into our magazine,” according to the release.
