The Pyro is a unique enhanced muzzle device utilizing the Sandman series QD attachment system. The Pyro is manufactured from the same rugged materials used in Dead Air’s award-winning Sandman series and features a Cerakote finish. The device allows operators to redirect muzzle flash away from the shooter and is particularly effective at redirecting muzzle blast in low-light and CQB situations. The Pyro is 2.9 inches long and weighs 5.5 ounces.
Hornady’s new Extreme Low Drag (ELD) Match and ELD-X expanding bullets were designed using Doppler radar, which precisely tracked their trajectories out to distances beyond 2,000 yards. These bullets have Heat Shield polymer tips that resists in-flight melting and deformation caused by aerodynamic heating. These projectiles also have precisely formed jackets that are concentric for maximum accuracy. The ELD Match bullet has been added to Hornady’s Match line of ammo.
Liberty Ammunition has released the first .308 hunting round in its new Animal Instinct ammunition line. This load is the fastest .308 available at 3,500 fps, and the projectile exits the muzzle with 2,700 foot-pounds of energy. This 100-grain, lead-free, copper, monolithic, fragmenting hollow-point round is the next generation of one of the most popular hunting and long-range rounds in existence. The Animal Instinct .308 delivers more lethality in a flat-shooting round with match-grade accuracy, all in a low-recoiling, easy-to-manage package.
Mesa Tactical has unveiled the LEO Telescoping Stock adapter and pistol grip system for the Beretta 1301 semi-automatic shotgun. This stock system can be fitted with a standard AR-15 grip and telescoping stock, which enables tactical operators to instantly adjust the length of pull in order to accommodate differences in individual body sizes, or when wearing body armor, without compromising the safest shooting position. All of Mesa Tactical’s stock adapters are made of investment-cast aircraft-grade aluminum, which are then CNC machined before being powder-coated black with a tough, chemical resistant finish.
The Maxim CQB Stock is a new kind of PDW stock. Fully collapsed, the CQB Stock adds less than 5.5 inches to your AR-15’s overall length. But what good is a compact stock if you can’t shoot it comfortably? Fully extended, the Maxim CQB Stock is the length of a standard carbine stock. And with four total length-of-pull positions, you can adjust your rifle for multiple scenarios and maximum comfort. The stock uses an exclusive cut-down JP Silent Capture Spring, allowing you to use your own bolt carrier group and break down the rifle as you normally would.
Radical Firearms will be building a 225th anniversary commemorative edition rifle for the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund. The new rifle will be built in limited numbers and will only be available to serving or retired U.S. marshals and deputy marshals. The U.S. Marshals Service is the oldest serving law enforcement in the country. President George Washington established it in September of 1789.
Every issue of GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT is dedicated to providing cutting-edge tactical gear to today’s law enforcement officers as well as self-defense-minded citizens. To that end, every issue is jam-packed with a “New Products” page showcasing some of the elite gear hitting the market.
