Baker Ballistics launches a new website featuring rifle-rated ballistic shields ideal for patrol first responders
LITITZ, Pa. — Baker Ballistics is proud to introduce an expansive new website highlighting two new models of MRAPS® Series ballistic shields, specifically designed for patrol officers to reliably protect against multiple impacts of popular 5.56mm Green Tip SS109 / M855 ammunitions at muzzle velocities.
Most knowledgeable law enforcement weapon experts currently consider AR platform weaponry, loaded with inexpensive and popular .223 and 5.56mm Green Tip ammunitions, the most penetrating projectiles an armor-equipped American law enforcement officer may encounter while on routine patrol.
Within the United States the chances of LEO’s being fired upon by .223 and 5.56mm caliber weapons are statistically many times greater than being fired upon by a .308 / 7.62mm x 51 caliber rifle – which is the NIJ level III ballistic testing caliber and a lesser threat to most hard armor than .223 and 5.56mm SS109 / M855 Green Tip.
Baker Ballistics optimizes use of military grade armor materials, and combined with advanced construction techniques significant advances in weight reduction and multiple impact capabilities are achieved. Users of MRAPS® Series ballistic shields can combine speed and maneuverability along with an ability to simultaneously deliver accurate firepower using patrol rifles.
