The new Oakley M-Frame Alpha is now available for purchase through OakleySI website. We have written a short preview of the product shortly after ShotShow 2016 (OakleySI Alpha). If you haven’t seen it, the Alpha consists in an Ecosystem of eyewear mounting frames that share the same lenses, this product allows the same lens both to work on a “sunglass” type of frame and on a mask. This allows great flexibility for the operator, especially with the introduction of a new, patented, quick inter-change lens system.
Of the Alpha Ecosystem it is possible to purchase the whole kit or even just a single item. There will be two main packages a soft and a tough case with many different lenses and the two mounting frames. As always Oakley will also allow to order frames, lenses, cases and the gasket separately. We really like to have the option of building our own custom kit and we appreciate the effort made by the company to let us do it.
As far as pricing goes we are not still 100% sure of the prices of each single item, but we know that the M-Flame glasses should be around $110 and the full hard-case kit should be around $300.

The FlatPack will also molle into any PALS based nylon system including plate carriers, assault vests or other packs with external PALs webbing.

For each caliber Sig Sauer allows the operator to chose between the different attachment systems, materials and dimensions; making each and every suppressor suited for the job. Sig Sauer, as for now, provides the user six different caliber: 5.56, 7.62 and .338 LM, .22, 9 mm and .45 ACP.

The new Kinetic SAS kit takes the amazing Magpul designed Masada (ACR-E) stock system and allow for direct use with your SCAR platform rifle. Stock ships fully assembled with SCAR adapter for drop in use.
Just a few months ago, Kinetic Development Group launched its company with the promise to bring solutions to the small arms market existing with high quality firearms. They started with the FN SCAR as many SCARs are deployed with our Special Operations Forces. They also recognize the 16S and 17S are increasingly popular with American shooters and law enforcement.
Their first products, the MREX (modular rail extensions) for the front end of the SCAR has been very popular. The KDG front and rear sling points have also brought the SCAR into the year 2015 as far as QD sling solutions go. Well, they have just addressed another common complaint about SCAR. Some refer to it as the SCAR’s “UGG Boot” like stock system.
SAS kits come standard with 7 positions of length adjustment, cheek weld height adjustment, an AMBI QD sling attachment point, a weatherproof battery compartment, and a side-folding feature. Like the factory stock, the weapon can be fired with the stock folded. KDG also added an optional set-screw to allow users the option to eliminate any play between the stock and receiver.
The stock and adapter comes fully assembled from KDG. There are no tools required to install on your SCAR! The whole system retails for $299.00 and can be purchased at www.kineticdg.com or a dealer listed near you found on their website.www.kinetidg.com/dealers
Haley Strategic Partners has just released the Disruptive Environments Chest Rig Heavy. This new chest rig will allow a more mission specific set up for those who operate with a 308 platform while having the same slickness and low profile of an HSP soft good.
The D3CR-H addresses the same mission as the original D3CR, but has been slightly redesigned to support .308 platforms. Optimized for work in urban, vehicle, rural and other confined settings, the Disruptive Environment Chest Rig was built to be worn as a stand alone system with a detachable H-harness or clipped into a armor platform equipped with a quick release system.
When run as a stand alone, the platform is low profile enough to be worn fully loaded and not print on a normal/loose fit jacket or sweatshirt. When run on a armor platform with a quick release system, such as SwiftClips™, it can be attached or stowed in seconds, giving the end user the versatility to transition from low vis to high vis or vice versa.
The rig intentionally does not include a radio or dedicated full size medical pouch so no matter the posture, essentials such as communications and medical kits can remain on the end user at all times. The D3CR-H is also compatible with the Haley Strategic D3 Expansion System allowing the end user to add features including the holster wedge or multi-mission hanger pouch.
The rifle magazine pouches accept almost any .308 magazine. The Multi-Mission Pouches accept 1911, Glock, Sig, M&P, XD and other standard double or single stack pistol magazines, as well as many handheld lights and multi-tools.
The system features:
4 .308 Magazine Pouches with Hypalon® magazine retention tabs (Pouches support SR25, SCAR, FAL, AR10, M14, Lancer Systems, PMAG LR)
2 Multi-Mission Pouches with Hypalon magazine retention tabs (Fits standard double and single stack pistol magazines as well as other equipment including flashlights and multi-tools)
Zipper GP Pouch (Medical, compass, GPS, phone, batteries and other various small electronics)
Zipper Tool Pouch (Includes elastic keepers for more mission specific essentials, such as Kestrel wind meters, ballistic calculators, dope cards, batteries, tools and various electronics).
The D3CR-Heavy will be available in early December in Coyote and Multicam for $179.
