Mission Spec Releases Four New Products Just Before Shot Show

As we move into Shot Show 2018, Mission Spec is releasing four new nylon products – available immediately.

The MagRack5™ chest rig supports three 5.56mm magazines and two laser-cut PALS wings for attaching other essential items such as pistol ammunition, radio, or IFAK. Magazines are bungee retained. Magazine pouches are fully compatible with Haley Strategic MP2 Mag Pouch Inserts.  The MagRack5 also comes equipped with two tourniquet holders and a loop Velcro field for identification.  The unit can be used as a stand-alone piece of gear with the aid of the RackStraps™ (either Standard or Enhanced model) or can be integrated into a plate carrier such as the Mission Spec EC2™ or AC2™.  The top horizontal GTSR buckles can be moved between the 90-degree and 45-degree positions for better integration options between plate carriers and RackStraps, respectively. Dual 550 cord loops hang under each outer magazine pouch for chem-light storage. A 7.62mm version (MagRack7™) is scheduled for release later in 2018.

The RackStraps™ integrate with the MagRack5 or other industry standard chest rigs. The Standard model offers a low profile and less expensive option while the Enhanced model gives the user the added benefit of closed-cell foam padding and airmesh to reduce shoulder fatigue.

The Armor Carrier 2 (AC2)™ is an even lighter weight version (~22.8 ounces) of the Mission Spec Essentials Carrier 2 (EC2)™. Removing the standard PALS grid and replacing it with loop Velcro makes the AC2 a great plate carrier choice to integrate with a chest rig (such as the MagRack5 or other industry standard rigs). All other features are identical to the Mission Spec EC2. The AC2 is fully compatible with other Mission Spec accessories such as the ShoulderSavers™ mk3 and FlankSavers™.

All four items are available in a large variety of solid colors and camouflage patterns. All Mission Spec items are 100% designed, tested, and manufactured in the United States with US-sourced components and are Berry Compliant.



LanTac USA E-CTG9 Trigger for Glock

From LanTac USA:

The Ultimate drop in trigger for your pistol, the E-CTG9™ trigger can be configured for Carry (Self Defense) or Competition (Target) use and comes complete with our improved trigger spring kit so you can set the ultimate trigger pull on your handgun.

The trigger housing features our SSR (Super Short Reset) 3.5Lb Connector that delivers the same trigger profile as the factory unit but is highly polished and re shaped to reduce friction and create a much smoother, lighter more consistent pull.

This connector makes super fast reset of the trigger possible, allowing for very quick follow up shots and reduced friction means less resistance for smooth operation.

Our Trigger Bar is manufactured from a proprietary blend of 420 Stainless Steel and polished to produce an ultra smooth hard wearing surface that reduced friction and trigger pull interference as it operates against the connector and internally against the pistol frame.


The included spring kit comes with the following parts to assist in reducing trigger pull further.


x1 4.0Lb Firing Pin Spring (For Target, Competition & Sporting Use)

x1 6.0Lb Firing Pin Spring (For Carry & Self Defense Use)

X1 6.0Lb Increased Power Trigger Spring

x1 Reduced Power Firing Pin Safety Spring & Ultra Smooth Safety Plunger.


Springs are manufactured from the highest grade piano wire and tempered for the best service life.

Each spring is calibrated to deliver consistent force through the entire compression cycle for reliable operation every time the pistol is fired.

With nearly 30% more power our Trigger Spring actually reduces the pull weight by as much as 1Lb.

The lower power Firing Pin Safety Spring reduces friction caused by the firing pin plunger engaging with the trigger bar and creates a much smoother operation of the parts.


The Triggers Pivot Pin and Trigger Bar position has been carefully considered to deliver maximum leverage with minimum force and the hybrid bow face is a perfect blend of curved and flat surfacing that delivers comfort with improved ergonomics and finger positioning.

The bow is precision machined from certified 7075-T6 aluminum and hard coat anodized Type3 Class2 Black.

Triggers are assembled in house and come with our lifetime warranty against defects in manufacture.


MSRP $185.00

B.E. Meyers MAWL now in use with GIGN

B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is pleased to announce that the MAWL-DA has been selected by the French National Gendarmerie’s elite police tactical unit, the GIGN, as their official individual NIR/VIS weapon laser and illuminator. The GIGN is currently upgrading legacy systems, and has begun to integrate new technologies with the unit’s available weapons platforms.

After evaluating various laser aiming and illumination systems through rigorous testing, and in real-world scenarios, the MAWL-DA was proven to be the superior solution, and was selected for formal procurement and deployment within the unit. In addition to the MAWL-DA’s selection by the GIGN, other units in France, and other European SOF units have adopted it for use in their respective operations.

The GIGN is the elite Police Tactical Unit of the French National Gendarmerie. Its missions include counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, surveillance of national threats, protection of government officials, and targeting organized crime. It is renowned for its selection and implementation of innovative technology and tactics, using a comprehensive suite of both small arms solutions, and weapon enabling systems. The unit’s selection of the MAWL-DA as a tool for mission success is notable in light of the GIGN’s pedigree, and reputation as a premiere SOF unit. B.E. Meyers & Co. looks forward to the MAWL-DA’s service with the GIGN as NIR/VIS pointing and illumination system which will assist in the unit’s response to both domestic and international threats.

The MAWL-DA (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser – Direct Action) is a high-power infrared and visible green aiming and illumination laser for individual carbines. Offering improved ergonomics, interface, and performance, the MAWL-DA has been designed from the ground up around the needs of the modern night fighter.

Engineered to address the shortcomings of common laser devices in use with both military and law enforcement, the MAWL® incorporates cutting edge VCSEL technology which eliminates the current problem of inconsistent and granular, speckled illumination. This unparalleled beam quality is leveraged with multiple modes of divergence and power, based on the ideal settings for any operational environment: Close Range, Mid Range, or Long Range.

B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. (www.bemeyers.com) is an ISO 9001:2008-certified manufacturer of optoelectronic devices used in defense and law enforcement applications. B.E. Meyers & Co. has produced various pointers and illuminators for both JTAC and UAS applications in the SWIR and NIR wavelengths for the last eleven years. The company’s core technologies include infrared and visible lasers for weapons aiming and illumination; non-lethal visual disruption green lasers for long-range hail and warning; night-vision devices; and long-range surveillance systems. Customers include all branches of the U.S. Military; Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies; foreign defense and security organizations; and defense contractors worldwide. Established in 1974, B.E. Meyers’ business offices, engineering, and manufacturing operations are located in Redmond, Washington.


Perseverance Survival Woobie Hoodie

I recently had the flu and I am not sure I would have made it through without a poncho liner, or woobie, that kept me warm while I wasted away on the couch. My wife and I even keep an after-market poncho liner with improved insulation near our bed in the winter to stave off the morning cold that comes with having a wood heated house. It is safe to say that woobies are integrated into my life and I suspect many of you are the same… but what if you could wear one all the time?

That is exactly what the Perseverance Survival Woobie Hoodie is all about. It is a hoodie, the world’s most versatile top, that is made from a woobie, the world’s most versatile blanket. You can wear it on its own or use it as an insulation layer under a shell in cold weather.

The Woobie Hoodie is available in three colors: Coyote, MARPAT, and good old Woodland Camo. I just ordered a Woodland Camo version for myself from Kit Fox Outfitters and I might do a review on it once I put it through its paces.

You can check out the Woobie Hoodie at PerseveranceSurvival.com.


Sneak Peek: 5col Survival Supply HPG Kit Bag Survival Kit

5col Survival Supply is developing a survival kit designed specifically to fit the Hill People Gear Kit Bag. The kit features quality components from Solkoa Survival Systems, Aquamira, UCO, and more. Given the versatile load carrying capability of the Kit Bag and it’s ability to stay with the wearer even when they have to drop their pack, I am surprised there hasn’t been other similar kits developed.

Stay tuned for additional details.


B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. To Exhibit at SHOT Show 2018

January 8, 2018 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. will be exhibiting the MAWL®, GLARE®, and IZLID® series of lasers, as well as the BOARS-M2™ at SHOT Show 2018 in Las Vegas, NV on January 23-26, 2018. This is the first time that B.E. Meyers & Co. will have the new Flat Dark Earth MAWL on display for public viewing. The company’s booth (20434) is located on the second floor of the show in the Law Enforcement section.

B.E. Meyers & Co.’s Modular Advanced Weapon Laser (MAWL) is a high power infrared and visible green Aiming and Illumination laser for individual carbines. It offers improved ergonomics, interface, and performance. Additionally, the MAWL-CLAD features a full suite of SWIR and NIR capabilities. The MAWL has been designed from the ground up around the needs of the modern night fighter and is currently in use and deployed on operations with both Special Forces groups, and security agencies in the U.S., Europe, and other nations.

The GLARE RECOIL, was selected by the Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) as the sole source winner for the U.S. Marine Corps’ Ocular Interruption Systems (OIS) program and designated the LA-22/U. It features the B.E. Meyers & Co. patented SmartRange™ technology that utilizes laser range finding and near-field detection to self-regulate power output. The result is a product that represents the pinnacle of Hail and Warning systems technology, featuring controlled EyeSafe™ irradiance while simultaneously achieving maximum permissible exposure on target. B.E. Meyers & Co. also offers a class 1M variant of the LA-22/U, the GLARE HELIOS.

In response to the need for a modular, compact optic mount for the M2 platform, B.E. Meyers & Co. developed a revolutionary low profile mounting solution, the BOARS-M2™. It offers a modular, quick-disconnect system with true return-to-zero reattach. The BOARS-M2’s low profile form factor increases operator survivability by lowering the end-user defilade.

The IZLID series of NIR and SWIR lasers are rugged, versatile, dependable, and designed for a wide range of applications and platforms. Primary applications include marking, pointing, targeting, and illumination. The IZLIDs can be used as handheld units or mounted to various weapons systems or aircraft.
