Angstadt Arms Introduces SCW-9 Sub Compact Weapon

Angstadt Arms has taken the wraps off their SCW-9 Sub Compact Weapon and their new Sub Compact Stock that is short, short, short!

From Angstadt Arms:

Charlotte, NC, (November 14, 2018) Angstadt Arms is proud to introduce the SCW-9 Sub Compact Weapon. The SCW-9 was designed to meet the strict requirements of the U.S. Army Sub Compact Weapon program. At just 14.7” long and 4 lbs., the SCW- 9 provides greater lethality than pistols and much greater concealability over standard rifles. With a rate of fire of 1,110 rounds per minute, the SCW-9 is capable of accurately engaging threats with a high volume of lethal force.

SCW-9 Key Design Elements

  • Fully ambidextrous controls, including magazine release, safety selector, charging handle and bolt catch and release

  • Accepts GLOCK® 9mm magazines

  • 4” barrel with 3-lug adapter for sound suppression

  • Ability to fire UTM marking and training rounds

  • Overall length collapsed: 14.7”

  • Collapsed stock length: 2.5”

  • Weight: 4 lbs

  • Rate of Fire (approximate): 1,100 rounds per minute

    The Shortest Sub Compact Stock System

    In addition to 9mm, the shortened stock system developed for the SCW-9 has been tested in both 5.56 NATO and .300 AAC Blackout calibers. This allows any M4 style rifle to reduce its overall collapsed stock length from 7” to just 2.5”. Making it the shortest telescoping AR-15 stock system available.

    Angstadt Arms has plans to offer the shortened stock system to other manufacturers who wish to incorporate it into their firearms. A pistol brace version of the shortened stock system is currently in development for the U.S. commercial market.

    About Angstadt Arms: Angstadt Arms designs innovative weapon platforms for military, law enforcement and responsible citizens. Their flagship UDP-9 9mm AR and sub-machine guns are currently deployed in over 25 countries worldwide.

NeoMag RASC

If you shoot and carry revolvers, you are likely already familiar with the excellent TUFF Products QuickStrips. They are a slim, lightweight way to carry a reload for your favorite wheelgun and they just became even easier to carry thanks to NeoMag.

The NeoMag RASC is a pocket clip that clamps on the end of QuickStrip. It is machined in house at NeoMag from 6061 aluminum and includes a steel pocket clip. This simple addition to the QuickStrip makes a lot of sense. It allows the QuickStrip to lay flat against the wearer and ensures that it is oriented such that it is immediately accessible from the pocket.

Without the RASC, speed strip style loaders tend to drop to the bottom of the pocket and move around. With the RASC, the strip would be in the same place and orientation every time.

New from RE Factor Tactical: The Advanced Slickster

The Advanced Slickster Plate Carrier is a product of RE Factor Tactical and Ferro Concept’s unique partnership.  We teamed up together to create a plate carrier that fits a large number of missions sets to include high vis kinetic operations to low vis work.  
 
Highlights:
  • Ferro Concept’s tested Slickster base
  • PTT Loops on front of vest
  • Integrated Kangaroo pocket for magazines/essential equipment
  • Elastic comms wires 
  • 2 x integrated radio pouches capable of fitting up to a PRC-152 Radio
  • 4 x 6″ Zipped admin pocket capable of holding a passport or similar sized item
  • Elastic cummerbund with 4 x magazine carriers
  • Added elastic retainers to cummerbund carrier for magazine retention
  • MOLLE Laser cut back panel

A Unique Plate Carrier Setup

We opted to create a unique carrier setup after years of frustration of wearing plate carriers that were good, but not quite good enough.  This plate carrier went through extensive testing overseas with individuals actively participating in the war on terror.  We continued to develop the plate carrier based on the actual current needs of combat. 
Our goal was to set out and create the best plate carrier on the market with features that could: maintain current comms systems, carry multiple magazines, attach equipment to the back, hold standard PTT systems, hold important documents and maps, fit in both a high vis environment and a low vis environment and most importantly be worn comfortably for long periods in a multitude of environments. 

Low Profile Plate Carrier

If needed, the Advanced Slickster Plate Carrier can be stripped of it’s equipment to maintain roughly the same print as the traditional Slickster.  Our goal was to create a low profile/slick plate carrier that could adapt to fit your mission needs.  While this isn’t the most low profile system on the market it is the most low profile carrier that can still be adapted for use in high vis kinetic environments if needed.  

Tactical Plate Carrier

The Advanced Slickster can also be adapted for use as a high vis, fully tactical plate carrier.  We went through great lengths to create a system that could fully accomodate multiple comms systems.  Each edge of the vest comes with a number of elastic loops to help you route your radio/antenna wires.  In addition, we included two large radio pockets for individuals using dual comms set ups.  When not used, the second radio pocket can fit other mission essential items such as smoke, magazines, flares etc.  We included an adjustable elastic loop on the top of the radio pockets to ensure your items stay securely in place.  We also included a special cut flap on the front of the carrier that can accommodate a number of different PTTs on the market.  We also included 4 vertical MOLLE slits next to each side of the admin pocket for further PTT placement options if needed.  
Next, we optimized the cummerbund to be able to securely carry a wide variety of rifle magazines, smoke or other mission essential equipment.  In the cummerbund we added four pockets with adjustable elastic retainers that will help keep your magazines in place during periods of intense activity.

Magpul® Limited Edition Frame Lock- Rigger

The Rigger is a limited edition, precision-engineered cutting tool constructed of premium materials and featuring signature Magpul form and function. This first-ever Limited Edition Frame Lock was designed by the team at Magpul and is an expression of Magpul’s design ethos and commitment to quality and innovation. The modified Wharncliffe blade is forged from Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) S35VN stainless steel, considered to be one of the finest blade steels in the world, and one of the first designed specifically for knife blades. This CPM stainless steel construction provides improved strength and wear resistance which means the blade holds its edge longer than lesser steels, reducing the need for frequent sharpening.

A jimped blade flipper deploys and locks the modified Wharncliffe blade with an audible click. An innovative secondary locking feature (SLF) in the Rigger’s precision-machined frame lock can also be engaged, preventing accidental blade closure, even in the harshest of environments and during demanding use. A flick of the thumb disengages the SLF, allowing quick, controlled blade closure, with or without gloves.

The modified Wharncliffe blade edge has a distinct distal taper and slight belly that enhance ease of sharpening, maintenance, and overall utility. The primary grind / bevel decreases weight while maintaining blade strength and rigidity. The straight dull back curves slightly with an abrupt downward edge near the tip, creating an aggressive point for piercing and detailed work.

The titanium pocket clip features a hollow pocket clip screw for lanyards and can be removed or reversed with a slotted screwdriver for easy disassembly and cleaning. At 7.59 inches open and 4.52 inches closed, it is an ideal size for everyday carry, yet large enough to handle demanding field tasks.The Rigger also comes with a custom high strength, injection-molded, weather-resistant case that’s internally lined with soft foam. When not housing the Rigger, the crush-resistant case serves as a storage box for small tools, ammo, or anything else that will fit.

The Magpul Limited Edition Frame Lock will be offered in a series of short, serialized production runs, making these unique knives highly collectible. Availability of the first of these runs will be announced in spring 2019.

Tango Down Licenses AK Magazine Design to XTech Tactical

January 3rd, 2019

Mesa, AZ

XTech Tactical, an innovative firearms accessory manufacture based in Mesa, AZ announces the company has reached terms with Tango Down on a licensing deal. Here is the background of the licensed technology:

Around 2002, Tango Down released its AR/M4 ARC Magazine which featured a waffle pattern on its side walls and tread patterns on its front and rear. There were never any patents related to the features. That product continues to be sold today, and it is one of the strongest magazines available for the AR/M4 platform.

Around 2008, Tango Down designed and developed an AK magazine using the same waffle and tread features present on its ARC magazine. Due to the erroneous claims made by Century Arms against XTech Tactical in their common law trade dress lawsuit, XTech Tactical is announcing that it has licensed the rights to all IP related to the AK magazine formally known as the US palm AK30, from Tango Down. Tango Down designed the magazine and has never sold the design to any party including US Palm.

XTech Tactical does not require these rights or any rights from an outside party for its MAG47. “Tango Down has been a strong ally to our company, and we are very thankful for their cooperation during this time!” stated Jeremy Deadman, XTech Tactical’s Director of Sales and Marketing.

Century Arms has stated it acquired US Palm in March of 2018 after signing a terms sheet with US Palm’s owners in January of 2018. Century Arms previously had filed trademark applications on the US Palm name and logo in August of 2017. In September of 2018, Century Arms filed and announced its first lawsuit against XTech Tactical, which was voluntarily dismissed by Century Arms.

Surprising to XTech Tactical, Century Arms then refiled in Arizona adding an AK Grip for which XTech Tactical is solely one of several dealers. Century Arms also added one of XTech Tactical’s owners as a defendant. This second suit is still active in Arizona.

XTech Tactical will be releasing several new products leading up to and at SHOT Show 2019 at its booth #4169. “We are believers in a free market that welcomes innovation and encourages fair competition. We will stay true to our core mission of listening to our customers, offering great customer service, and bringing innovation to the market. We could not be more excited for this year’s SHOT Show!” stated Deadman.

FightLite® MXR® Product Alert!

(Melbourne, FL) January 14, 2019 – FightLite® Industries, the country’s leading manufacturer of innovative, mission-configurable firearms, parts and accessories announces the official production launch of its caliber and magazine convertible FightLite® MXR®!

The new patent-pending FightLite® MXR® is a multi-caliber, pistol cartridge platform that is primarily chambered for 9mm NATO and is caliber convertible at the user level without tools to include .22LR, 9mm NATO, .357 Sig, .40 S&W, 10mm, 45ACP and FN 5.7 x 28mm. The compact MXR® is suppressor capable via a threaded barrel and will also accept a variety of common pistol magazine types including those from Glock, Sig, Beretta, CZ, S&W, and many others. Available in pistol, carbine and select-fire submachine gun models that are suitable for civilian, law enforcement and military use. 

Manufactured in the USA of aerospace grade materials, the MXR® is offered in two sizes; a Standard model with a 7” barrel and a more compact “K” model with 5” barrel. Features include MIL-STD 1913 rails at the 6-12 o’clock positions and Magpul® M-Lok interfaces at 3-9 o’clock positions of its monolithic receiver for optimum strength and accessory retention. Also included as standard equipment for the MXR® are ambidextrous controls, M4-compatible fire control and pistol grip interface, AR stock/brace interface and a left-side charging handle for quick and easy use. The compact and reliable FightLite® MXR® leads the pistol caliber market with a lightweight and accurate product that improves user and agency logistics and ammunition management by permitting its users to have complete caliber and magazine commonality between their choice of everyday sidearm and their FightLite® MXR®.

“The MXR was born from an operational logistics failure that we first observed after the Bataclan terrorist attack in Paris a few years ago and have now seen many times over, principally by law enforcement users of submachine guns and pistol caliber carbines.” says FightLite® CEO Geoffrey Herring. “We noticed that while department pistol ammunition may be standardized, officers frequently don’t have pistol magazine commonality with others on their own force. And it gets worse when a pistol caliber carbine or submachine gun is introduced into the equation.

So for example, a SWAT member may have a Glock or M&P as their sidearm and an MP5 or other as their subgun. And while both weapons may be 9mm, there is no sharing of magazines between the sidearm and the subgun. So the MXR fixes that logistical problem and not only permits the user to share magazines between his sidearm and his FightLite MXR; it also permits the user to change sidearms and magazine types and adapt his MXR to his new pistol magazine type. So if it’s a Glock today and maybe a Sig or different caliber Glock pistol tomorrow, we can accommodate that change with our MXR so that law enforcement, military and civilian users can streamline their training and ammunition management and maintain rational logistical commonality between their systems to reduce the obvious shortcomings of not having them paired.”

MSRP starts at $799 and FightLite® will be accepting Dealer Orders during SHOT Show. To learn more about the innovative and patent-pending MXR® or to place Dealer orders, please visit FightLite® Booth 12971, New Product Display area and RSR Booth at SHOT Show 2019! MXR…One Weapon, ANY Mission!® 

The annual SHOT Show is being hosted at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas January 22-26, 2019.
