S&S Precision has updated its well known V-Lites adding a small LED status indicator. This will prevent the operator from inadvertently keeping the light on when not in use. This evidently mostly applies to IR V-lites, but the update was expanded to the whole line.
During SHOT 2019, S&S also exhibited new additions to the navboard series, which is now expanded to accomodate different jumping and ground operations needs.
Kestrel HUD (Heads Up Display)
This new product is weapon mounted directly on to the 1913 rail of the rifle and offers a very efficient view and interface for the shooter. The HUD communicates via Bluetooth with the Kestrel ballistic calculator and directly imports the data (which also imports its data via Bluetooth from the range finder).
It offers different screen modes: single target, up to 10 targets, full dope card and others. HUD + 1913 mount is 399 USD (The version with the remote is 499 USD).
A basic weather meter with a basic ballistic calculator.
Single gun and single target operation but ready to go for simple precision shooting calculations.
Ideal for hunters, due to its price point and dimensions. (179 USD)
Daniel Defense has taken the modularity of the AR platform and integrated it into a one-of-a-kind bolt action rifle. From an interchangeable cold hammer forged barrel to a user-configurable stock, the DELTA 5 features out-of-the-box customization that would normally require professional gunsmithing.

SCAR MREX MK II M-Lok
This year at SHOT, KDG has launched the updated version of the MREX rail for the SCAR platform. It comes in three different lengths and it feature M-Lok slot on all surfaces. The new version also extend vertically to provide protection from the heat of the gas block. Available in tan and black.
This model is defined by many as an adaptation of the Glock 19X (which was developed for the MHS program) to the Law Enforcement and duty needs.
The full grip (of the Glock 17) allows for maximum control while the shortened slide (of the Glock 19) provides various advantages.
Among the pros are faster “clearing of the holster”, shorter sight radius and less reciprocating mass, both due to the shorter slide.
Although a shorter sight radius will render more accurate shots more difficult, it provides a great advantage: the shooter is able to pick up the sights much faster, both on the first shot (from holster or ready position) as well as during follow-up shots.
Along with the sight radius follow-up shots are quicker due to reduced mass moving along the slide. Instead of lightening the slight Glock has simply shortened it, achieving the same result.
