The KDG Optics Hub is a very effective solution for seamless Day/Night detection, identification and distance estimation.
SCAR MREX MKII
Thermal optimization has to be considered a key priority for effective leadership. The negative effects that extreme cold and hot can have on performance and motivation are quite clear to everyone, and they have been for a long time. Qore Performance, with the creation of a whole ecosystem of products successfully tackled this issue, and in multiple fields.
Evaporative cooling requires very specific condition in order to effectively lower the body temperature and to bring the body back down to a state in which it can actually perform. To achieve the maximum cooling effect Qore applies conductive cooling instead. This means that in contact with the body is a mass of cold/hot (ice/water) capable of exchanging heat/cold in order to keep the body in a performing state for the longest period possible.
This is not an addition to the kit that is already carried. During this cooling exchange process the content of the ICE Plates becomes drinkable water, therefore replacing the hydration bladders currently carried. A solid block that sits closer to the body is also a much more efficient way of carrying a water reservoir. Bladders are inefficient and could be susceptible to rupture if not carried properly.
Now, Qore Performance also produces a plate carrier that was designed to perfectly integrate these features with ballistic protection and lightweight.
ICE: IcePlate Carrier Exoskeleton
The ICE shown below features: ICE Vents, ICE Shield Plus, ICE Plate Curve and ICE Plate MOLLE Sleeve.
Beneath the plate carrier, attached via Velcro, is a hand-warmer also designed by Qore Performance. This sleeve allows the user to keep the hand warm and therefore keeping a high level of dexterity even in cold climates without the hindrance of having them in a pocket (and without being scolded, it’s a sleeve not a pocket… DS). The zipper provides access to a compartment in which chemical hand warmers can be placed, as well as a ballistic insert, which provides ballistic protection to the lower-abdominal / pelvic area. This feature really fits in the multiple-purpose approach that is prevalent in almost all Qore Performance’s products.
ICE Plate MOLLE Sleeve
Qore Performance is also very active in the industrial/infrastructure/construction field.
The same thermal efficiency concepts apply to these fields.
With a lot of experience in merino wool manufacturing and yarn treatments Point6 is now entering the glove market with a very interesting line of products.
Soon more details will be released.
Vortex is one of the first to launch a new chapter in the realm of LPVOs, the 1-10 magnification. Although many argue that for tactical use high magnification does not always provide the best shooting results, usually the same see great advantage for detection and identification.
The Razor HD Gen III 1-10×24 is a first focal plane 1-10x powered optic that features HD optical system and a crisp, illuminated reticle in a package that weighs the same as the 1-6x. A true 1x on the low end and daylight bright illumination for reliable performance in all conditions makes this a very interesting option for close-quarters and long-range.
533 Mini Bugout
the Bugout has been scaled down in the form
of the new 533 Mini Bugout. Available in two different colorways, the Mini Bugout
maintains the same material configuration as its full-sized counterparts in a 1.5 oz
package. With a closed length of 3.7”, this ultralight folder is small enough for a mint
tin, yet big enough for adventure.
Blacked out from tip to tail, this
Bugout® will be a favorite amongst customers of all lifestyles. Re-engineered with
Benchmade’s new CF-Elite™ handle technology, the 535BK-2 weighs in slightly
lighter than its predecessors, yet boasts greater rigidity under pressure. Just when
you thought the Bugout® couldn’t get any lighter…
For those looking for something a little more robust, the new 537GY-1 Bailout takes
lightweight strength one step further. Outfitted with woodland green anodized
aluminum handles, and a CPM-M4 blade, this Bailout can hang with the best of
them despite its slim profile.
601 Tengu Flipper
Blurring the lines between traditional design and modern technology, the new 601
Tengu epitomizes the style of Jared Oeser’s custom designs. This slim and classy
flipper is packed with detail, from the CPM-20CV blade to the dual-colored G10
handles. Complete with a black leather carry sleeve, the Tengu is bound to impress
those looking for something different.
A tactical knife doesn’t always need to be overbuilt to serve its purpose. Taking
the best from some of our favorite legacy designs, the new 8551BK Mediator is
Benchmade’s latest push-button automatic. With milled chevron-pattern G10
handles and a CPM-S90V reverse tanto blade, the Mediator™ is a sleek switchblade
with lightning-fast action.
Continuing the precedence for speed and style, set by the initial 3400 Autocrat,
the new 3400BK-1 and 3400BK-2 Autocrat are our latest addition to the
out-the-front platform. Designed with both EDC and tactical enthusiasts in mind,
this quick and lightweight OTF can perform just as well as it looks.
391BK SOCP TACTICAL FOLDER
Designed by Greg Thompon as a first-option, battle-blade that incorporates a
myriad of functional features, the new 391BK SOCP Folder is ideal for on and
off-duty carry. The rapid deployment ring and tip-down carry enhance the speed
at which this knife can be deployed from concealment, and the smooth handle
dimples allow for confident transition in your hand. Redesigned with Benchmade’s
AXIS-lock technology, this knife won’t leave you fumbling for functionality in
173BK Mini SOCP
aking the best features of its full-sized counterpart, we have teamed up with Greg Thompson to optimize some of the most popular elements of the SOCP®. platform for concealed carry with the 173BK Mini SOCP®. Based on feedback from Special Operations personnel, we have updated the design of the sheath clip, to allow for better retention on MOLLE® webbing, pocket seams, and waistbands. The overall length of the knife allows for easier concealment, while maintaining it’s effectiveness in a self-defense situation.
15085-201 MINI CROOKED RIVER
Hand finished and
assembled by our elite craftsmen, the 15085-201 Mini Crooked River carries the
proverbial torch of its predecessor in regards to style and class. Dressed in marbled
carbon fiber handles, with Raffir® Alume Yellow Moon inlays, and a Vinland™ pattern
570-1 PRESIDIO® II
With years of experience and redesign, the new Presidio II now features Benchmade’s CF-Elite™ handle material. Light enough to cut overall weight without compromising durability, the 570-1 Presidio II is the perfect option for those looking for a robust folder that doesn’t weigh their kit down.
Salomon has been moving all of the XA Forces range to a trade compliant manufacturing facility to better allow US procurement on a macro level. Salomon has also added anti puncture, anti slip (in all models) and anti static (some models for now).
The never ending search for optimization of rail space on long guns now sees Surefire as one of the main actors actively involved. For many years the professional consumer was aware of the myriad of possible configurations (handguards, lights, IR aiming devices, suppressor, muzzle devices…) and knew that after receiving the brand new light the quest for the perfect mounting solution began.
Now, it’s a one stop shop.
Scout Light PRO
Available for Picatinny and M-Lok (both out of the box). The Pro mounting body is available for Dual Fuel Scout Light, Scout Light, Mini Scout Light, Infrared Scout Light and Infrared Scout Light Mini.
The Scout Pro body allows to orient the mounting plate and to lock it down via a screw.
The new XVL2-IRC is the Civilian Legal version of the XVL2-IR. This new version of the light is not only particularly interesting for civilians but it also a great option for all departments that do not want to have full-powered IR devices mounted on secondary firearms.
The XVL2-IRC features a 400 Lumens white light, <5mW Green vis laser, 300 mW IR illuminator and a <0.7 mW IR pointer.
Surefire has redesigned the rechargeable option of the previously shown pistol mounted light for conceal carry. This new version features a removable and individually rechargeable battery, an example they have provided is changing the battery during a low-light no-light course.
Same design will also be available for the XR2, the light + laser version.
A new unexpected product from Surefire Suppressors was the brand new 50 Cal suppressor.
Gerber launched a folding machete with a very clever design.
During the opening of the blade (butterfly style) a pair of gears ensure that the two halves of the handle rotate synchronously. Once in position the two handle halves lock with an apposite mechanism that really stiffens the handle.

At SHOT Show 2020 Streamlight has launched many new products, with a lot of focus on weapon mounted lights. Aside from an output update to the TLR-1 HL line (now up to 1000 Lumens) all new weapon mounted lights are based on the body design of the TLR-7 and TLR-8.
We have seen, in the past few months preceding SHOT, the launch of the TLR-7 A; what the gun industry has defined as “the TLR-7 that we wanted in the first place”.
The same switch design as been applied to the TLR-8 with the TLR-8 A: the lased equipped version.
Based on the same design are some new products that nobody was expecting: the TLR RM1 and RM2, together with the TLR-9. This aluminium body line of lights are designed for use on full frame handguns (TLR-9) and long gun/pdw use (TLR RM), with direct switch or with a pressure pad.
TLR-9 (showed with both switch options) and the TLR RM2
Also new for this year are some work lights, although designed for the automotive industry they features some modes that could be interesting for the tactical industry.
One example is the dedicated UV light for spotting leaks, which could also become very useful when doing maintenance on equipment or for medical use.
Very interesting lightweight optics mounts from Scalarworks.
