The EPOCH Holster delivers three levels of weapon retention. The retention system engages the pistol’s ejection port and won’t let go until actuated by the single-phase, thumb-activated release. Upon release, the Pivot Guard remains open for one-handed holstering and prevents users from being locked out of the holster. This unique design accommodates popular under-barrel lights such as the TLR-1 and X300 for added versatility. The position of the Auto Lock thumb release and outboard index finder groove properly align the hand for a full master grip.

Christensen Arms TFM
The Tactical Force Multiplier (TFM) rifle was named for the combination of attributes that make it more effective and accurate than others of its kind. It defies traditional tactical rifles by providing the accuracy you need while weighing half of what you’re used to carrying. The TFM is available in several chamberings, including .223, .308, .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua. The .223 and .308 models come with 24-inch barrels and weigh 8 pounds unloaded, while the .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua models feature 26-inch bull barrels. All TFM rifles come with Timney triggers and 0.5-MOA accuracy guarantees.

It sets up and breaks down in seconds, with no tools required. Innovative clamping plates apply pressure to the furring strips over a large area, providing a firm grip and hold on the furring strips (not provided).

Mesa Tactical Lucy Adapter
Mesa Tactical has introduced an adapter for 20 gauge Remington 870 shotguns to use 12 gauge 870 buttstocks. Called the Lucy Adapter, this simple coupler simply bolts to the back of a 20 gauge 870 receiver, allowing the 12 gauge stock to then rigidly bolt to the adapter. This greatly increases the options and availability of buttstocks for the 20 gauge shotgun. The 20 gauge Remington 870 is an excellent platform for personal defense, but it suffered from fewer tactical buttstock offerings than its 12 gauge counterpart. The Lucy Adapter solves this problem.

Fraser Optics Monolite
Fraser Optics has launched its new Monolite gyro-stabilized monocular with day and night-vision eye pieces. This unit is especially unique since it has magnified and stabilized night-vision capabilities. With the 12x night-vision eye piece, objects can be identified in low-light conditions at long distances. Engineered with Stedi-Eye technology, the military-grade, lightweight Monolite is the world’s first gyro-stabilized monocular. Ideal for law enforcement use, the internal gyro will remove up to 98 percent of image motion, providing crystal-clear, razor-sharp images at great distances. It’s also 100 percent sealed, buoyant, submersible and waterproof.
