Flat Dark Earth (FDE) and Tactical Models Join the HK VP Product Line
Columbus, Georgia – Two new models of Heckler & Koch’s VP striker fired pistol have been added to the company line-up this summer. New Flat Dark Earth (FDE) colored frame variants and threaded barrel “Tactical models”join the renowned VP family of 9 mm and .40 caliber pistols.
The new VP FDE models are manufactured using special colorants added to the frame during the molding process and are available in both 9 mm (VP9) and .40 caliber (VP40). The color frame cannot fade or chip and is unaffected by chemicals, sun, and exposure to the elements. FDE models have all of the highly regarded VP features-with the addition of their colored frames. Flat Dark Earth is a tan/brown color scheme that has gained favor among many military and security units in recent years (http://hk-usa.com/hk-models/vp-fde/).
The VP Tactical models (available in both 9 mm and .40 S&W) are also identical to standard HK VP pistols, except for the addition of premium grade threaded barrels -only their weights and lengths differ due to the longer and slightly heavier threaded barrel (http://hk-usa.com/hk-models/vp9-tactical/).
The threaded barrels are manufactured at HK’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany, using the legendary Heckler & Koch cold-hammer forging process. HK cold hammer forged barrels -made from proprietary cannon grade steel -are well known for their long service life. Similar HK barrels on P30 models have fired more than 90,000 rounds in endurance tests.
“Adding color frame models and VPs with threaded barrels is our response to the many customer requests we received on this phenomenal handgun,”said Michael Holley, HK-USA Vice President for Commercial Sales and Marketing. “Look for us to continue fleshing out the VP Series with customer-driven product improvements. The VP is one of HK’s most successful handguns. Its ‘precise pull’trigger is recognized as industry-leading. VP pistols are accurate, rugged, safe, easy to fit to any shooter’s hand -and they’re fun guns to shoot.”
Both the VP FDE color frame models and the VP Tactical models are made completely in HK’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany using all of the company’s advanced technologies for barrel manufacturing, as well as production of the machined steel slide, polymer frame, and all internal components. HK VP pistols are competitively priced and covered by Heckler & Koch’s lifetime warranty.

Grey Ghost Gear has brought a new plate carrier to the market. The Minimalist Plate Carrier has been dubbed a “lighter and better plate carrier with a minimum of thrills, but a ton of function”. This new play carrier was designed to carry 10×12 hard plates and large ESAPI plates. The carrier offers six rows of MOLLE/PALS style webbing and built-in matching loop material on the top three rows for the option of attaching patches or ID panels. Discreetly placed on the front side of the carrier is a stash pocket. That makes perfect storage for small items that may be needed readily.
The Minimalist Plate Carrier is only made in one size to fit most body types with the shoulder straps being adjustable and integrated elastic side straps, giving you the ability to keep a snug fit, while still allowing for unexpected dynamic motion. Designed to stand up in hard use situations. The carrier is constructed from MIL-SPEC materials and is lined with air mesh for comfort and breath-ability. The plate carrier is available two colors; Coyote Brown and Multi-Cam.
True to the name, the Minimalist Plate Carrier is not going to offer you an overabundance of options or features, but for those who have a need for a carrier that is not going to overburdened them, especially those who need to be in environments with restricted or tight spaces will find the carrier to be a good solution.
Individuals that find themselves working in a Personal Security Detail with the need to have a lower footprint with the amount of gear that they are wearing a find at this plate carrier is easily concealed, while still affording them the protection of heavy plates. Additionally, dignitaries who have to work in or travel through hazardous environments may find the use of this minimalist carrier to be less restrictive and overly noticeable.
Donning and doffing this plate carrier is a cinch with the two side buckles securing the front and back portions of the carrier together securely. I found the adjustment of the shoulder straps and the side straps to be very simplistic and quick to accomplish. Though this is a minimalist carrier, I found this carrier to be extremely comfortable with the interior padding on front and back sides of each panel. Though some may not like the fact that the plate is visible from the exterior of the carrier and allows more functionality with different heavy plate types and does not add more material where it is not needed.
Grey Ghost Gear is offering this plate carrier at an affordable price for any wallet, which is currently offered at a sale price of $105.80.

The pants are constructed with 6.5 oz 65% Polyester/35% Cotton mini Rip-Stop fabric with IntelliDRY treatment and 100% Polyester mesh to prevent shrinking.

Armalite has added another model to their precision rifle line-up in 2014 with the sub-MOA Armalite AR-31. The AR-31’s 24” barrel is chambered in .308 WIN, has a short bolt action, a single-stage Shilen trigger, and accepts AR-10B double-stack magazines. While test firing this rifle, there is very light felt recoil, which is similar to shooting a 5.56mm AR-style rifle, and consistently hit a 5” steel plate at 100 yards (maximum distance at range during test). The AR-31 retails for $3,46.00. For more information visit, http://www.armalite.com/, or call 1-800-336-0184.
