Safariland’s New Rapid Light System
Offering maximum versatility and usability, the RLS system employs a single, ultra-bright flashlight and separate gun mount with a built-in clip. The flashlight mounts onto any weapon incorporating an integral rail or Picatinny rail system, including rifles and shotguns. Designed to mount in two quick and easy steps, the RLS slides onto a weapon’s rail and locks into place, rapidly transitioning from standard flashlight for hand-held use to tactical illumination. The light can easily be removed from the mount, and the belt clip secures easily to belts or garments, eliminating the need for additional equipment on an already full duty belt.
With LED technology, the RLS flashlight is bright enough to serve as an officer’s primary light system, providing more than 50 hours of use with just three AAA batteries. The standard push-button provides controllable on/off illumination of a target, minimizing loss of handgrip, sight picture and exposure. The RLS mount can be purchased separately, allowing the user to attach his own compact flashlight. It can accommodate a variety of compact lights, ranging from .97 inches to 1.06 inches in diameter. The RLS Light/Mount System is available in black, with a suggested retail price of $125.00. RLS mount - $45.00 For details, visit www.safariland.com

New Top Gun Mark 1 Tactical Flashlight
Top Gun Mark 1 has a unique dual switch feature that provides side and rear switches. The side switch has three electronic modes; the first press provides 100% of power (170+ lumens), the second press offers 25% of power, and holding switch fully pressed for 1-3 seconds puts the light into flash mode. A rear tactical (second) electronic switch is simply in an on/off mode of 100% of power. A small red LED low battery indicator is built into the side switch, which begins to flash when there is less than 20 minutes time remaining on the battery. “O” rings on the front head and rear cap protect the light from dust and water ingress, and is rated IPX7 (waterproof up to 1 meter limited duration).
Run time is 5+ hours on 100% brightness mode and 20+ hours at 25% power & 30 hours of strobe. The battery has no orientation to positive or negative and can be installed either way, in case a battery change is required in the dark. Time to recharge from flat to full charge is 2 hours. Top Gun Mark 1 accepts part charging as the battery has no memory and, in case of emergency, a charge of 15-20 minutes will provide approximately 40 minutes of light at 25% mode. Projection distance is up to 500’, beam convergence is 15 degrees fixed, strobe frequency is 10-12 MHz, and color temperature is 6000K. It measures 9” long, weighs just 14.2 ounces.

Trijicon® announces a new solution for night-time tactical engagements. Their Tactical Advanced NightVision System (TANS) brings cutting-edge night vision to the front lines in a compact, rugged and easy-to-use sight, providing a clear advantage for those who must go into harm’s way. The historical trade off for the critical advantage of seeing at night has been night vision equipment that was cumbersome, delicate or difficult-to-use. However, the new Trijicon TANS is a cutting-edge night vision system that is specifically designed to work perfectly in front of the Trijicon ACOG sights, with negligible affect on boresight—allowing extremely rapid proficiency from one’s normal shooting position. This important design feature eliminates the traditional night vision shortcomings of mounting equipment behind daylight sights, requiring the user to move the existing sight and subsequently lose his battlesight zero. Designed for military and law enforcement applications, the entire unit can be added or removed effortlessly from a MIL-STD 1913 rail. The 24 oz Trijicon TANS is made with a low 1.5 inch optical centerline that is free from parallax errors, optimizing target acquisition in CQB situations during low-light conditions. The Trijicon TANS is available in three versions; a U.S.-only Gated version, a NATO-Spec 1600FOM version, and a Non-NATO 1250FOM version.
Best of all the advantages don’t sacrifice Trijicon’s trademark ruggedness. Manufactured with a combat-strong aluminum housing, the Trijicon TANS is completely submersible up to 66 feet for two hours. The system features a field-replaceable modular power pack that is incredibly versatile—designed to fulfill mission requirements on either (1) CR123 or (2) AA batteries. Additionally, the power pack allows full system operation on a single AA battery for a shorter duration. The Trijicon TANS’ catadioptric lens is extremely durable, requiring little maintenance while maintaining permanent boresight retention for the life of the unit.
With an operating temperature range of -30° to +60° Celsius, the Trijicon TANS goes anywhere our troops and peace officers go, perfectly complementing the battle-proven line of Trijicon combat optics. Designed with the latest advances in night vision technology, the Trijicon TANS’ fast f/0.9 catadioptric lens collects a maximum amount of starlight for a brighter and sharper image, taking advantage of size and weight reductions of the latest generation in image tube technology. Roughly the same length as the highly-praised Trijicon ACOG (6 inches), the TANS advantage is priceless in close-quarter combat and room clearing, providing full day scope field-of-view (up to 14°) optimized for magnification up to 8x. The high-resolution night vision sight provides a large 33mm output optic that fully fills most day scope objectives, ensuring that the eye volume of the day scope is unaffected. The Trijicon TANS will be available for purchase by military units and law enforcement agencies only. For details, visit www.trijicon.com
Blackhawk Products Group’s Warrior Wear® with Integrated Tourniquet System
The majority of preventable deaths come from loss of blood resulting from leg and arm wounds that is not protected by body armor. Ten percent of preventable combat deaths are from extremity bleeding and 50-70% of all combat injuries are extremity wounds. The fact that you can always find the tourniquet with the Integrated Tourniquet system and the speed with which you can immediately apply it will dramatically impact not only loss of life but also the amount of time that it takes to recover from extreme blood loss injuries. Blackhawk intends to incorporate ITS. into its current line of apparel and will also license the technology to other manufactures that currently provide apparel to the military and law enforcement.
