FAST Micro Mount
The FAST series of optics mount is one of the main new products for 2019 from Unity Tactical. These mount are designed to work with almost any tactical carbine optic on the market today (Leupold, Aimpoint, EoTech, SIG, Holosun, Vortex, Primary Arms…).
Innovative solutions, for very specific problems related to tactical (especially night vision) work, are not something we didn’t expect from Unity Tactical.
These mounts offer a similar solution to the optics world as the FUSION does to the IR/Lasers/Illuminators/Lights market: they provide a smarter and more efficient solution for tactical work.
This is achieved with a centerline of 2.26″; this extra height provides clearance for comms, gas masks and helmet mounted equipment.
It allows the operator to have a more natural cheek weld when using night vision passively, if the enemy has Night Vision capabilities.
In fact the neutral spine position reduces tension and fatigue in the neck and the shoulders, especially with the extra weight of ballistic helmets and NODs.
Included within the Micro-footprint mounts are built-in fully-adjustable iron sights. The peep sight is adjustable for windage and it is possible to use a front sight post adjustable in elevation.
Because both elements are contained within the mount the sight radius is very short (1″) but it is certainly effective as a backup with all those platforms on which there isn’t any rail surface available for standard sights (Ideal for SMG and PDW with mission critical devices such as IR lasers / lights).
Short, but better than nothing.

FAST FTC Aimpoint Mag Mount
The Unity Tactical FAST FCT Aimpoint Magnifier Mount brings the optic unit at the correct height of 2.26″ centerline. It is designed for the 30mm magnifier and it will soon be available for the EoTech G33.
The extra height allowed to solve a very common and annoying issue with magnifiers. Instead of flipping the optic unit to the side, creating a snag hazard for close quarters and gear, the FAST FTC Mag Mount flips down, maintaining everything within the weapon’s footprint.
There are no switches, buttons or levers; only a 15 pound force to overcome. A very intuitive and rugged hinge design.

In the attempt to solve the same issue for most Red Dot sights on the market, Unity Tactical had to use a different approach for any “block” style sight. This solution has been utilized in the past in similar fashions but Unity Tactical’s integration with the Optic/Magnifier/BUIS/AimingDevices ecosystem has been unique and innovative.
The Riser accomplishes mainly two goals:
1) lift the centerline at 2.26 inches, ideal for previously mentioned uses and for integration with the FAST FTC Mag Mount.
2) Integrated Rear Flip-up sight, to allow for side mounting Back Up Iron Sights directly to the raiser itself, without losing any rail space for dedicated 1913 45° mounts.
The FAST Riser is compatible with EoTech EXPs, Leupold LCO, Vortex UH1 Wilcox BOSS 300 and other sights with similar specs and dimensions.

FAST Scope Mount
Unfortunately we weren’t able to take a photo on the show floor but here are some details.
The mount has a centerline of 1.93″. It will be available for 30 mm and 34mm tube diameters and with 0 and 20 MOA cant.
The main innovative feature is the modularity of it and how it integrates more weapon’s accessories into very little space (not unexpected from Unity Tactical).
Different modules will be able to bolt on to the side of the mount allowing to add either small Red Dot sight for CQB (Micro, RMR, DPP, ACRO P1…) or BUIS.
The Unity Tactical signature is in the thought process behind these modules: they are designed to have a very ergonomic offset but they are also slightly lifted to be able to clear the BE.Meyers MAWL mounted in the front.
All made in 7075-T6 Aluminum with type 3 hard-coat anodize.
Below is the image of the BUIS module bolted to the RISER for the EoTech EXPs.
This is a remote switch that mounts directly on the M-Lok rail.
This very ergonomically efficient 45 degree switch allows for momentary or constant on activation with a clickable button.
It is compatible with Surefire, Streamlight and laser cables (ATPIAL-c, AN/PEQ-15, DBAL, MAWL…).
Unity Tactical has expanded their offering for the SPARK light for 2019.
SPARK will soon be available in Red, Blue, Green, IR and SWIR.
The light is completely enclosed and it is not reusable, but with 200 hour runtime and an MSRP of 12.99 it is a very effective and affordable solution for Mil/LE, USAR and First Responders.
The light is backed with hook tape and it is sold with an adhesive patch of loop tape.
MARK + REMORA
Kinetic Development Group has been releasing a lot of great new products in the last few months. They have been focusing mainly on the FNH Herstal SCAR platform, diversifying from most of the other firearm accessories manufacturers on the market. We have already introduced you to the SCAR Adaptable Stock (SAS) a few months ago. Since then KDG has released some other interesting products both for the SCAR and AR platform (technically any platform thanks to the Magpul M-LOK system [Read our article]). They started by providing the FN SCAR operator an alternative extended aluminum rail system that would provide the same customization and attachment options as most ARs do, this is the MREX (Modular Receiver EXtention).
KDG has also released in the past few moths a new mounting system based on the M-Lok platform: the Kinect QD. This line of Quick-Detach mounts allows the operator to change and swap accessories on the weapon within seconds. There are two spring-loaded wedges in the base of the Kinect™ mounting point. When you press the accessory or rail section down in the MLOK™ slot, two tiny deployment triggers get pressed against the rail firing the wedges into place. There is nothing more frustrating that fiddling with an allen wrench (if you can find it) to get your accessories on an off your weapon with traditional modular rail sections. This changes the whole dynamic of the MLOK™ system and really makes every accessory truly removable with the ability to mount it in a second when needed. Due to the high quality materials and engineering skills this system does not fear recoil or hard use.
The last product line KDG has released is the Sidelock Optic Mounts. The first one to arrive on the market was designed for the Aimpoint Comp M4. The patented cam system locks the mount down onto picatinny without the need of tools, side levers, or huge knobs. The release system allows users to change out their optics on the fly with less hassle. The 3 levels of locks insure the optic will not move unintentionally, maintaining zero for the shooter, and returning to zero when remounting in the same position after removal. They have now released two other optics mounts: the Sidelock Universal Scope Riser (that features a plain 1913 rail system) and the Sidelock Aimpoint Micro Mount.
This year at SHOT Show Magpul has released some very interesting products. The first segment is dedicated to the “marriage” between Uncle Sam and Mother Russia with the release of some new rifle furniture for AKs.
Magpul ZHUKOV-S Stock
The Magpul Zhukov-S Stock is a no-compromise folding stock for the modern AK.
