Prater Precision and The Sniper Data Board

While precision rifle shooting, have you ever forgotten your holdovers from having a big target array? Or from having a target center way out in the distance?  If you answered “YES” to either of these questions, the Prater Precision “The Sniper Data Board” is perfect for you!

A U.S. Special Operations Veteran designed The Sniper Data Board to access ballistic reference sheets or ballistic computers without disrupting the shooting position or allowing the target to leave the field of view. With a clear protective case, the shooter can make corrections with a grease pencil, plot out targets, and set DOPE in the desired chart. Additionally, this device helps the shooter quickly move from target to target without coming off the gun to look at the next shot’s hold.

The Sniper Data Board allows quick reference to your data for multiple distance engagements. The Sniper Data Board is a collapsible, lightweight solution that utilizes a standard Picatinny rail to display on either side of the weapon. The Sniper Data Board Data Card Holder is available in MultiCam® and Tan. The components are precision machined from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and protected by Mil-Spec Type III hard coat anodizing.  The Sniper Data Boards are manufactured and assembled in the United States with all Berry Compliant materials.

Magpul® Back-Up Sights (MBUS®) Pro

When situations arise and a shooter’s primary rifle optic malfunctions, gets damaged, or loses battery power, it could become a life or death situation. However, running Magpul® MBUS® Pro sights as a back-up will keep the shooter in the fight and confident in their weapon. The shooter can quickly reengage offensively when resorting back to old school standard iron sights. However, the MBUS® Pro front and rear sight combination are superior to traditional iron sights.

 

The MBUS® (Magpul® Back-Up Sight) Pro is a corrosion-resistant all-steel sighting solution that delivers maximum functionality and strength and mounts to a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny or STANAG 4694 rail with minimum bulk. The sleek combo has positive detents that keep the MBUS® Pro Front and Rear at standard M4/M16 height when deployed.  The MBUS® Pro has a small footprint on the rail while offering a very low profile, even compared to its Gen 2 Polymer MAGPUL® brother.

 

The user can mount the MBUS® Pro sight to a gas block without melting or deforming due to the all-steel construction.  The sights have a narrow base to make them compatible with most IR aiming laser and light installations for the professional user. Additionally, the elevation adjustment knob & windage knob can be turned by hand and require no tools to manipulate. The rectangular front sight post also has a selectable Standard & Match option.

 

Another MBUS® option is the Pro Offset Sights. These come in handy when the primary optic malfunctions or gets damaged. This 45-degree angle provides the shooter with an accurate iron sighting solution.

The REAR sight, with its sleek low profile, has sturdy positive detents in both up & down positions. In either mode, the desired position remains with no likelihood of slipping. However, making adjustments by hand takes a fair amount of finger strength. The MBUS® Pro Front & Rear combo weighs in at 3.3oz with hardware. The MBUS® Pro set up can be bought either in individual components or as a set.

The SOPMOD Buttstock

The Lewis Machine & Tool®, LMT®, SOPMOD buttstock was derived out of the Special Operations Peculiar Modifications program.  It was a true public/private partnership that teamed private business to manufacture new solutions to increase weapon performance for Special Operations Force’s requirements.  One of the block 2 program goals was to create an improved buttstock that would advance ergonomic and performance standards.

 

LMT® was the commercial force behind the development of the SOPMOD buttstock.  The stock incorporates an enhanced cheek weld and a rubberized buttpad.  The better angle on the cheek helps gain a more natural shooting position and incorporates two watertight tubes for battery storage. Together the enhanced cheek weld and rubberized buttpad reduce the overall felt recoil and improve second shot consistency.

 

The stock utilizes glass-reinforced polymer that is stronger than a standard M4 buttstock.  The tube is cut to military specified extension tubes and has a tight tolerance to eliminate any rattle or sound.  The gen2 SOPMOD stock incorporates two quick detach sling swivels for sling attachment.

 

Bottom line: The LMT® SOPMOD stock is an operationally-proven buttstock that reduces perceived recoil and improves accuracy.

SureFire® SOCOM Suppressors – The Standard-Bearer

In 2002 SureFire® created its suppressor division to redefine suppressor technology, materials, and construction. Starting with the finest U.S. mill-certified high-temperature alloys available, SureFire® engineered the most advanced and fail-safe suppressor baffle system ever devised. It met all their ambitious criteria for sound, flash, and dust signature reduction while remaining compact in size, lightweight, and supremely durable. They torture-tested every design relentlessly to ensure that it met their goals while consistently producing a sub-1 MOA shift in point of impact compared to the same weapon unsuppressed, regardless of the number of attach-detach cycles. Their patented front plate design virtually eliminated the first-round flash signature. Their patented Fast-Attach® mounting system provided a rock-solid interface with the weapon and fast and easy detachment after extensive firing. The philosophy at SureFire® has always been that durability, signature reduction, accuracy, repeatability, and sound suppression are the most important factors to consider when evaluating a suppressor design for combat or duty use.

Once they were satisfied, they had met their own goals; they summated their suppressors for the SOCOM suppressor solicitation. The SOCOM suppressor solicitation was the most demanding suppressor trial ever performed by the U.S. Military. In 2011 SureFire® was awarded the SOCOM Suppressor contract for $23.3 million.

 

In 2017 they were awarded another $10 million contract.

This contract is the second award based on the most rigorous and extensive suppressor selection in USSOCOM history.

RE Factor Tactical Target Lineup

RE Factor Tactical Target Lineup, Featuring the IQ and Essentials Targets

 

RE Factor Tactical has a variety of targets intended to help amp up your shooting game. They like to say that the best target is the one that makes you better, and RE Factor has done an excellent job at providing targets to help. We want to highlight two targets from RE Factor: their Pistol and Rifle IQ Targets and the Essentials Target.

IQ Targets

The IQ Target comes in a pistol or rifle version. So, depending on what you’re aiming to shoot will depend on which target you’d be using. So, how does it improve your shooting? Well, the IQ Targets make the shooter think by presenting a variety of letters, numbers, shapes, and colors to shoot.

Instructors or range buddies can give the command, “Shoot all circles with a number in them” or “shoot all the red shapes.” This forces the shooter to think about where they need to aim, rather than merely putting holes in paper.

MAGPUL® Gen M3 Magazine

With a few modifications to the combat-proven MOE® (MAGPUL® Original Equipment) M2 PMAG®, the Gen M3™ takes a great design and adds additional improvements. The Gen M2 MOE® and the Gen M3™ are primarily designed for the AR15/M4 weapons. The Gen M3™ has a modified internal and external geometry also permits operation with a wide range of additional weapons such as the HK® 416/MR556A1/M27 IAR, British SA-80, FN® SCARN MK 16/16S, along with others.

The MOE® MAGPUL® set a new standard moving away from the aluminum USGI magazine while offering a cost-competitive upgrade. The new Gen M3™ still comes in a robust impact-resistant polymer construction. It also includes the dual-sided transparent windows to enable rapid visual identification of an approximate number of rounds remaining. The window incorporates new material technology and manufacturing processes for enhanced strength, durability, and reliability to exceed rigorous military performance specifications.

Like the MOE® PMAG, the GEN M3™ features a long-life USGl-spec stainless steel spring, four-way anti-tilt follower and constant-curve internal geometry for reliable feeding, and simple tool-less disassembly to ease cleaning. Also added is a redesigned bolt catch notch in the rear of the magazine provides increased bolt catch clearance. At the same time, an over-travel stop on the spine helps ensure the magazine will not over-insert on compatible weapons. Low profile ribs and new aggressive front and rear texture gives positive control of the GEN M3™ in all environments. A paint pen dot matrix has been added to the bottom panel of the body to allow easy marking by the end user for identification.

The new, easy to disassemble flared floorplate aids extraction and handling of the magazine while providing improved drop protection. It is slightly slimmer than before for better compatibility with tight double and triple magazine pouches. The magazine includes a pop-off Impact/Dust Cover that minimizes debris intrusion and protects against potential damage to the top cartridge during storage and transit.

The Gen M3™ magazine takes a proven design and adds amazing additions for the end-user while maintaining value to the customer. When it comes to a Polymer magazine with well-thought-out functional options, the MAGPUL Gen M3™ is a magazine well worth using. These magazines are proudly made in the USA.

Holster Retention Levels And Your Safety

There is a lot of concern in the Law Enforcement community for the safety of law enforcement officers. In 2019 146 officers were killed in the line of duty.  Three died from assault and 50 by gunfire.   Most agencies recognize the need for helping officers keep their weapons from falling into the wrong hands

 

Currently, there are no government requirements and no industry standards for rating holster retention levels as there are for body armor protection. Companies are free to develop their own protocols for testing and ratings. As such, retention levels are not directly comparable across the industry, and things can quickly become confusing.

 

In the early 1970s, Bill Rogers, former FBI agent and founder of the Rogers Holster Company, studied and tested all of the existing duty holsters to see which designs were effective.  Bill developed a system based on a series of simple tests that could be conducted in the field by the end user. Today these have evolved. Below are Safarilands test retention requirements for duty holsters.  These are used because they are in writing and have been around for a long time.

 

Security ratings used by Bill Rogers and then Safariland after buying Rogers Holster Company, are performed using a suitable duty belt.  As such concealment holsters and tactical holsters were and are not rated.  Tactical holsters are generally attached to the body using nylon or Velcro.   Concealment holsters are attached to the body using numerous kinds of pant belts or just inserted into a pair of pants by some.  It does not matter what security rating a holster has if it is not secured to the officer’s body.

 

Below is the Rogers / Safariland testing method used to rate levels of security for their products.

 

The Test Retention Level I™

 

The Holster Retention Test is described as applying all the force to the grip or handle of the weapon by an individual while the weapon is totally secured in the holster and mounted on a suitable belt being worn by another individual.  The test is to simulate a “grab and snatch” initiated by an adversary.  The direction of force is unlimited but the duration of the force is limited to 5 seconds.  At the end of the 5 seconds, the weapon must still be secure in the holster and the holster must still be attached to the operator.  The operator must be able to accomplish a draw after the attack within the times set as a standard by the controlling department or within two seconds if no standard exists.  If the holster passes this initial test, it qualifies as a Level I Retention™ Security Holster. The Holster Retention Test described above is referred to as the “Test”, but over the years, it has become synonymous with “Level l test”

 

Level II Retention ™

 

Before a holster can be considered for a Level II rating, it must first past the Holster Retention Test. After passing the Test, the primary lock must be disabled and the same Retention Test is repeated. In order to test the holster for a Level II rating, the primary securing device must be determined.  The primary securing device is defined as the lock that requires the first action by the user in order to start the drawing sequence.  This initial action is an individual and deliberate action by the user to start the unlocking of any securing mechanism.  The holster is tested with the initial lock disabled.  It does not have to pass the complete test.  If the holster exhibits the ability to further secure the weapon in a meaningful way after the primary lock is disengaged then it qualifies as a Retention Level II™ security holster.  If after disabling the initial lock, the holster can again completely pass the Holster Retention Test, then it is clearly is rated as a Level II and may qualify for additional levels of security.

 

Level III Retention ™ and additional levels

 

A Level I holster that has completely passed a second Holster Retention Test, with the primary lock disabled, is clearly rated at a Level II.  It can be further tested for additional levels of security.  To determine a further rating, the second motion or action required by the user to continue the drawing sequence must be simulated.  As in the example described in the Level II rating of the secondary lock would be in the final unlocked position before the Retention Test is performed.  The holster does not have to pass the complete test.  If the holster exhibits the ability to secure the weapon in a meaningful way after the secondary lock is disabled, then it qualifies as a Level III Retention™ security holster.  Of course if the holster passes a complete Retention Test with the second lock disabled, it can be tested for further security levels by continuing to disable additional locks and conducting the same tests as outlined above.

 

So, if you’re shopping for a Security / duty holster — as an individual, a supervisor or buyer, you need to go beyond the sales pitch and fully understanding how the security features work. You need to ask questions about the specific tests that a manufacturer uses to rate their products. Until the NIJ and or the industry unite around a single standard, it’s not enough to assume that all rating denotes a comparable level of security between the different manufactures.   Many departments are using pull testers to test the strength of the holster and the mounting brackets of different holsters.

 

Every year Officers are still killed in the United States with their own weapons, duty holsters need to be secure but still easy functional under all levels of stress.  All Duty Holsters can be defeated if the attacker knows how they function.  The only way a manufacturer can produce a duty holster that cannot be defeated with today’s technology is to weld the pistol into a metal holster.  If the officer can get it out a suspect can get it out.   Everything on a duty belt is a tool that can be used by and for the officer to do their jobs.   Tools are great but Defensive tactics and training is still a necessity.

 

Thank you for your service and be safe out there!
