High Speed Gear (HSGI) just released press information on two new products that they are releasing. Continue reading for further information.
Our new, slotted, padded-belt systems are the next generation of the HSGI® padded-belt family. They maintain all the durability and versatility of the standard Slim-Grip™ and Sure-Grip®, but add more options for users. Through their paneled design, the wearer can attach both MOLLE and belt-mounted pouches, holsters and drop platforms to these padded belts. The design allows the user to either wear it as a full MOLLE system or weave the inner belt in and out of the panels to expose both belt and MOLLE attachment points.
The TACO® LT, Pistol TACO® LT and Double Decker TACO® LT function like the traditional TACO® pouches, but weigh 30% less with our new injection-molded polymer brackets and improved Cordura® laminate. The MOLLE versions take advantage of our resilient and light new vinyl MOLLE backers, while the belt mounted versions use a loop of Velcro® One-Wrap®. These pouches have been tested by law enforcement professionals and special operators alike and have proven to be as durable as the originals.
The following is a Press Release from Mounting Solutions Plus:
Miami, FL – (January 2015) – Mounting Solutions Plus, a manufacturer and distributor of firearm products, announces the expansion of their Bobro product offering. New products include the Bobro AR LowRider BUIS Set, as well as Bobro Trijicon MRO mounts.
Bobro AR LowRider BUIS Set
Designed with Short Barrel Rifle owners in mind, Bobro LowRider Sights are extremely low profile. This design prevents them from interfering with lights, lasers and optics. Even though these backup iron sights were designed to fill a specific need, they can still be used on a full size rifle in traditional BUIS positions.
Despite their low profile design, LowRider Sights maintain all of the adjustability of a standard set of BUIS, such as Windage and Elevation.
BOBRO Trijicon MRO Mounts feature the patent-pending BLAC lever system which allows for a rock-solid engagement with a 1913 Picatinny rail without the need for manual adjustment. Offset risers and cantilevered risers can be conveniently used with this modular system, providing a custom fit for all sorts of applications.
Bobro MRO mounting systems available include a Low Mount, Lower 1/3 Mount, and Absolute Co-Witness Mount. Bobro Trijicon MRO Mounts come with all tools necessary for installation.
Mounting Solutions Plus will be at Booth 20201 in the LE Section of SHOT Show 2016.

Nightforce Optics has a couple new optics in store for 2016 as well as some new accessories. The following are a few Press Releases from Nightforce.
New Competition™ Fixed 42 x 44 riflescope from Nightforce
The new Nightforce Competition™ Fixed 42 x 44 riflescope combines unparalleled precision with exceptional value for the competitive shooter. This riflescope is purpose built for short range competitive shooting, where weight is an issue. By eliminating the inherent weight of a variable-power mechanism, the Competition™ 42 x 44 weighs just 20.7 ounces. Its ED glass provides exceptional resolving power and color contrast, bringing clarity to the smallest target at extreme ranges.
As with all Nightforce riflescopes, the Competition’s mechanics are extremely robust, impervious to recoil. 1/8 MOA (.125 inch) adjustments track true and without backlash. Side parallax adjustment focuses to under 10 meters, making it an excellent choice for rimfire and air gun competitions, as well as for large caliber and long-range applications. Every advantage for the serious shooter has been included, such as high-visibility engraving, fast-focus eyepiece, sunshade, lens covers and a choice of proven Nightforce CTR-2™ or CTR-3™ reticles.
This new riflescope joins the Competition riflescope family, which includes the extremely successful Competition™ 15-55 x 52, the riflescope chosen by the U.S. F-Class Rifle Team for their campaign to the 2017 World Championships. The Nightforce Competition™ Fixed 42 x 44 retails for $1795 in the US market.
New first focal plane SHV™ 4-14 x 50 F1 from Nightforce
Nightforce has announced their first SHV™ riflescope built with first focal plane reticle technology, the SHV™ 4-14 x 50 F1. This is the latest addition to the company’s popular SHV™ line, winner of two consecutive Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice awards.
The new riflescope features intelligent reticles with illumination that turns off between each of 11 brightness settings, allowing the user to pre-select an illumination level appropriate for lighting conditions, turn it off to preserve battery power, then restore it instantly with a one-click rotation of the dial. This prevents having to cycle through multiple brightness settings, which takes time and can affect the shooter’s night vision. The proprietary Nightforce MOAR™ and MIL-R™ reticles are offered.
The SHV™ 4-14 x 50 includes side parallax adjustment, and offers windage / elevation adjustments in .25 MOA or .1 Mil-Radian increments. It has an exposed elevation turret with Nightforce ZeroSet™, which provides the user with a positive return to their zero point regardless of how many elevation adjustments have been made. The windage adjustment is capped for protection, but the cap can be removed and the windage adjustment used fully exposed. The SHV™ 4-14 x 50 allows 90 MOA of elevation adjustment and 70 MOA windage within its 30mm tube.
“Our SHV™ line has been extremely popular with shooters who demand affordable performance,” said Sean Murphy, marketing project manager, “and the new 4-14x F1 model continues to deliver. Fewer options and a simpler configuration allow us to offer SHV™ models at extremely competitive prices. We created the new 4-14 x 50 F1 to answer customer requests for SHV™ quality and affordability with the unique benefits of first focal plane reticle placement.”
New riflescope accessories from Nightforce
Nightforce Optics has added several items to its growing line of shooting accessories. New are Standard Duty Rings, providing an ideal combination of durability and value. Available in .90, 1.00, 1.25 and 1.50 inch heights for 30mm tubes, the straightforward two-screw design of the new Standard Duty Rings require less front-to-back mounting space, ideal where installation choices are limited. A positive locking jaw design and machined recoil lug provide perfect alignment and superior accuracy when mounted to Mil. Std. 1913 bases (also available from Nightforce). These new rings are a quality option available to shooters for under $100 retail.
The new Nightforce MultiMount™ was originally designed as a platform for close-range sights to be mounted in conjunction with a primary riflescope. The MultiMount™ offers far more versatility, however, functioning as a user-configurable system providing a rock-solid base for any Mil. Std. 1913 accessory that will fit.
Designed to replace the top half of an X-Treme Duty™ ring, the MultiMount allows placement of a Mil. Std. 1913 rail at the 45-degree left, 45-degree right and/or 90-degree up positions. Two rail sections are included, along with mounting hardware. The MultiMount™ is available for 30mm and 34mm X-Treme Duty™ rings.
The RAP™ (Ruggedized Accessory Platform) provides four inches of Mil. Std. 1913 rail space above a riflescope for the mounting of lasers, illumination tools and other accessories. Replacing the top half of Nightforce four- and six-screw X-Treme Duty™ rings, the RAP will withstand heavy recoil and still maintain zero even with delicate accessories or sensors.
The new Compact Magmount™ adds to the tough and reliable Nightforce Xtreme-Duty™ Ultralite Unimount™ and Magmount™ mounting systems, with titanium / aluminum construction providing the performance of steel at half the weight. The Compact Magmount™ requires less rail space than the traditional Magmount, and is available to fit 30mm and 34mm riflescope tubes. Options available include both zero MOA and 20 MOA of taper.
Nightforce manufactures an extensive array of rings, mounts, bases, and related accessories created to maximize accuracy and performance, especially when used in tandem with a Nightforce riflescope.

The following is a Black Friday Press Release from Snake Hound Machine and PHLster:
Years in the making, PHLster Holsters is proud to finally announce in-stock and quick shipping inventory of their most popular items. Four years ago, when they made their first YouTube video as PhillyEDC, nobody had any idea that a holster manufacturing business would grow up around this educational resource. Well, 200 videos, 24,000 subscribers, 2.5 million views, and several trend-setting, innovative products later, they are excited to have leveraged the recent advancements in DIY and Maker technology, to successfully reverse-engineer large-scale manufacturing processes. Using 3D scanning, vacuum forming, and CNC technology, this small operation of just three people has, at last, clawed their way out of a perpetual 4-6 week backlog and have assembled an IN STOCK inventory of their most popular holsters and accessories, ready for Black Friday of 2015. Not only has the speed of production improved, but these new processes allows the production of a holster with functionality otherwise impossible with traditional hand-forming. Aside from superior consistency and fit, and the famous fight-worthy and deliberate-yet-smooth level of holster retention, the Glock holsters offer a true universal fit, something that, despite best efforts, slapping hot plastic on a replica G19 never could accomplish.
Due to the small size of a startup operation, overcoming the challenge of merely creating all of these holsters has proved more than enough. To get them out into the world and into the hands of waiting customers, they have enlisted their good friend Owen Martin of Snake Hound Machine to handle our distribution needs, through the new snakehoudmachine.com web store. Snake Hound Machine has recently moved into a new 2500 square foot warehouse and prototyping facility and their new optimized website hosted on a cloud based CDN is primed to serve customers with lightning speed.
The initial inventory will include our innovative and time-tested Glock Skeleton minimalist holster, designed to reduce the absolute maximum amount of holster while retaining the ability to re-holster with one hand, if required. As an alternative to the ultra-minimalist types of options which only cover the trigger, the Skeleton holster offers the capabilities of a full-sized holster while only adding a nearly imperceptible amount of bulk compared to smaller and more compromised designs.
The other available model of holster is the ACCESS holster for Glock and Smith and Wesson Shield, respectively. The ACCESS holsters feature additional muzzle coverage, for improved comfort during training, as well as 3/4th height ambidextrous body shields. The streamlined appearance, ambidextrous functionality, and single attachment point sets the standard for what many makers and customers expect from a dedicated AIWB holster.
Glock holsters will fit everything from the 26 through the 17L (as well as any .40/.357sig variants) and the Shield holsters are compatible with safety and safety-less models.
In addition to the Glock Skeleton and ACCESS offerings, the Universal IWB double-stack magazine carrier is also available. Universal fit, adjustable, minimal, comfortable, and ambidextrous, it fits all popular double-stack 9mm and .40 caliber magazines.
Last, but not least, is the TDI Fight-Worthy knife sheath. The KaBar TDI small law enforcement knife is one of the best last-ditch clinch fighting emergency self-defense blades available for the price, making it an incredibly popular enduring choice for concealed carry and law-enforcement. The free "sheath" it comes with, however, doesn't live up to the capabilities or the potential duty requirements of knife. Poor grip access and a loose fit, creating the risk that the knife may fall out during a fight, led to the design the Fight-Worthy sheath in response. Despite having the maximum cutaway, allowing the user to get the highest, most complete grip on the knife, They've made each sheath with the level of retention required of a piece of last-ditch emergency equipment. No amount of physical disruption, aside from the deliberate and aggressive draw of the user, will dislodge the knife from the sheath, ensuring that it WILL be there when you need it in that worst circumstance.
“It is such a relief to have finally beat the holster backlog game. We're looking forward to keeping Snake Hound in stock, adding to the quick-ship selection, and efficiently delivering these quality products to customers with zero lead time.” - Jon Hauptman

The FrogLube 2-Product System has Flawless performance on all the competition guns for the second year running.
FrogLube degreasing solvents and lubricants were used to prepare and maintain hundreds of firearms during the three days of intense competition in 12 match stages and 5 side match stages. “We only use FrogLube and that’s what we trust.” commented Cole McCulloch, owner, Peacemaker National Training Center. “When we need guns to run, we call on the FrogLube Team and they made it happen for us.” Match Director, Tom Pohulski.
“Happiness is a FrogLube treated gun”, says Larry Lasky,owner and founder of FrogLube brands. “Our victory is when hundreds of professional and amateur competitors and hundreds of guns all come together during intense competition and their focus is on individual competitor talent and gun performance, not gun lube.”

Kelli Sampel, Jamie Franks and Tyler Renville logged scores in the top tier of all competitors and took home some nice prizes. “I could not be more proud of our team’s performance,” said Lasky, “ this lady and these gentlemen are superbly talented, but more importantly, they are passionate, gracious and honorable stewards of our sport and representatives of our brands.” Kelli, Jamie and Tyler attribute part of their successful rise in the sport to the qualitative advantage they achieve from using the FrogLube system in their firearms.
