Due to the success of the Tactilite .50 BMG, Zel Custom Manufacturing has released a new line of upper assemblies that allow a user to convert AR-15 rifles into single-shot, bolt-action rifles, chambered in either .50 BMG or .416 Barrett. Features include a receiver CNC-machined from a single piece of 4130 tubing, an eight-port muzzle brake and a two-lug bolt head. The new Tactilite in .416 Barrett is more powerful than the .50 BMG out to 1,000 yards. For more information, visit www.zelcustom.com.

Over the past decade, TASER Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) have become widely recognized as a safer, more effective response to resistance. While TASER ECDs revolutionized law enforcement, they had one significant drawback: a single shot capability. That’s been remedied by the new TASER X3, which features breakthrough multi-shot technology, enhanced safety characteristics with a Pulse Calibration System that provides consistent effects on the target, an environmentally hardened system built to protect the device from all weather conditions and an improved Range Adjusted Dual Laser System to increase officer effectiveness.

GRIP POD SYSTEMS
About four years ago, the U.S. Army at Picatinny Arsenal tested all known bipods in open competition for use on the M16 rifle series. The patented Grip Pod from Grip Pod Systems prevailed as a strong, dual-purpose vertical foregrip and bipod in one small, light package. Weighing only 7 ounces, the compact Grip Pod deploys with the push of a button and enables the soldier to engage the enemy with speed and accuracy never before thought possible. It attaches to the M4 carbine and M16 rifle series and is currently adopted by the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, FBI, DEA, U.S. National Guard, British Army and many other military, federal and state LE agencies.

HARD CASE TACTICAL LIGHTS
The Energizer Hard Case Tactical line of lights is designed to meet the lighting and light discipline needs of military, law enforcement and first responder personnel.

(Will run on lithium or ordinary alkaline batteries for added versatility.) Features include six light modes of white, red, blue and green LED light, infrared and strobe light and seven hours of runtime on high power for $125.00.
