New from Bravo Company is the BCM series of KeyMod Rail Panels. The panels feature ultra-slim surfaces with aggressive non-slip and non-reflective texturing. Ventilated for cooling, each panel is radiused to create a continuous “tube” surface when run on an octagonal-profile handguard. Made in the U.S.A. of high-strength polymer material, the panels are bi-directional with locking tabs on either end and are designed to fit all KeyMod mounting surfaces with seven consecutive KeyMod slots.
New from World War Supply is an impressive reproduction of the German Reichsrevolver leather holster from WWI. The premium-quality holster follows the pattern of the original down to the details of the ammo storage pocket and the flap cover style. Attractive leather and quality stitching round out the package.
Gladiator Protective Products & Services offers users top-tier protective gear for when they go into harm’s way. The Gladiator Fast-High Tactical Ballistic Helmet offers Level IIIA protection to the user in a light and comfortable package. Available in black, sandstone, olive, camouflage or, for an added fee, in custom Cerakote finishes, the Gladiator Fast-High Tactical Ballistic Helmet is ready for duty.
New from Magpul is the PMAG 30 AK/AKM GEN M3 magazine designed for the ever- popular Kalashnikov family of 7.62x39mm rifles. The polymer magazine features a steel-reinforced front spine and locking lugs yet is extremely lightweight and impact resistant. The magazine features a removable floorplate for ease of cleaning and maintenance and counts as three 922r compliance parts.
Not simply a “holster” but rather a wearable and portable safe, the new ABDO from European American Armory (EAA) Corporation offers fast access to a fire- arm through a “quick-latch” system. Capable of being clipped to a belt or inside a purse, the ABDO can carry several .380 and .32 ACP pistols and is constructed from tough and durable polymer for light weight and extreme strength.
New from Bullets.com is the Bald Eagle Gun Safe series. The safes are available in 22, 39 and 51 long-gun capacities and feature plush shelves to protect your valuables from scratches and dings. All safes feature heavy-duty, 1.25-inch, chrome-plated door bolts and a Securam heavy-duty digital lock. The safes are fire- resistant for up to one hour, and five-spoke chrome handles and an attractive red powder-coat finish round out the package.
Designed for 3-Gun competitors, tactical users and recreational shooters, the new Binary Firing System (BFS) trigger from Franklin Armory delivers fast-paced firepower. The trigger system features a three-position selector: Mode 1 is “safe,” Mode 2 is “Traditional” and Mode 3 is the “Binary” setting. The third setting will allow the firearm to discharge one round with every function of the trigger, whether it be a pull or a release. The user can prevent firing a round on a release by simply moving the selector back to Mode 2 and then releasing the trigger.
