Night Optics USA has been on the cutting edge of night-vision gear. The new TS-640 is a ruggedized, lightweight thermal weapon sight for mid-to-long-range target engagements. Integrated features include a power-saving standby mode, brightness and contrast adjustments, white-hot/black-hot polarity, digital zoom controls and programmable presets. The unit also has the ability to transmit its output via a NTSC or PAL video-out capability. The TS-640 has a quick-release Picatinny mount and features custom reticles. (; 800-306-4448)

MGI’s Rate and Recoil Reducing Buffer was designed to cut recoil from AR-style rifles while increasing the shooter’s hit ratio. The resulting MGI patented buffer is a self-adjusting, completely mechanical buffer with fewer parts to fail and none of the leakage associated with the common hydraulic or pneumatic buffers currently used. It is not uncommon for systems employing the MGI buffer to easily put over 1 million rounds through a single rifle without a rebuild, with nothing more than routine cleaning and lubing. A D-Fender D-Ring also comes with the MGI buffer. (; 207-817-3280)

EOTech unveiled an IFL (Integrated Forend Light) for tactical shotguns. The IFL uses ambidextrous on/off pressure pads on the forend. It can be set for constant-on, momentary light, strobe and off. In high-pressure situations, simply tap the pressure pads to activate the light. This can be done without adjusting your grip. These integrated lights are only available in 120-lumen output, and run on one CR123 lithium battery (120-minute run time). They’re waterproof to 1 meter and feature a custom texture so you won’t lose contact. It fits the Mossberg 500 and 590 and the Remington 870. (; 734-741-8868)

Affordable, reusable “full-block” EP5 Sonic Defenders Max utilize a soft, adjustable, triple-flanged stem to seal the ear canal and block out potentially harmful sounds, providing an impressive noise reduction rating of 26 decibels. Made from soft but durable hypoallergenic polymer and featuring the EarLock for retention and a proper fit, EP5s provide all-day comfort and their low profile allows them to be worn with a mask, helmet, or supplemental hearing muffs. Sonic Defenders Max are available in clear, black, or orange and SureFire makes many different renditions of the Sonic Defenders. Each set is packaged in a convenient carry case and includes a polymer lanyard. (; 800-828-8809)

Building upon its line of popular rifle accessories is the new shotgun accessory system from Magpul. Bringing the company’s advanced engineering to this popular platform, the system is made up of a buttstock, forend, sling mount system and assorted accessories. The forend features MOE slots that can accept all standard MOE accessories, and the buttstock can accept cheek risers and length-of-pull spacers. Add-ons currently fit Remington 870 shotguns, but more are expected. (; 877-462-4785)

The Remix Pro MPLS System —four unique headlamp designs for handling various tasks—can be used with a standard headlamp band or mounted onto duty LE or military helmets. The Remix Pro MPLS uses a single Maxbright LED paired with three LEDs, which allow users to switch between area lighting and a 70-lumen spot beam. The MPLS uses a CR123 lithium battery and features seven separate colors for its LEDs: white, red, green, blue, infrared and combos. (princeton; 800-257-9080)
