The market is nowhere near stale. Americans are still buying firearms in record numbers. As the number of concealed carry permits increases, so does the demand for new, interesting and innovative self-defense products. I always appreciate it when a company quickly jumps to the ever-changing consumers’ needs, such as LaserLyte and its release of a laser for the GLOCK 42 and SureFire’s new ultra-compact Defender tactical flashlight. This week’s new product spotlight also includes a quick-release one-handed operation muzzle brake, an innovative way to load your AR-15 magazines and handgun ammo battle packs fit for long-term storage.
SilencerCo Saker Trifecta Muzzle Brake
With the Saker Trifecta muzzle brake, SilencerCo has made competitors and operator’s lives easier. For an easy, one-handed off and on muzzle brake, check out SilencerCo’s Saker Trifecta. It fits the MAAD Trifecta mounting system. The Saker Trifecta muzzle brake has three ports and reduces recoil when shooting your 5.56mm NATO rifle. It has a standard 1/2×28 thread and offers a quick detach mounting system. Watch the MAAD Trifecta system in action:
Caldwell AR-15 Magazine Charger
Caldwell brings us an innovative and quicker way to load AR-15 magazines, without you needing to touch even one round. The AR-15 magazine charger allows you to dump the ammo straight from its holder, bullet tip down and load 50 rounds in an instant. With each push and pull of the plunger, the Caldwell mag charger loads five rounds—it takes six push/pulls to load one 30-round AR-15 magazine. The mag charger works with all AR-15 magazines, including MIL-SPEC aluminum, polymer, PMags, 60- and 100-round SureFire and even drum magazines. The charge includes a plastic tray for loose bulk or ammo packed with the bullet tips down.
LaserLyte GLOCK 42 Red Laser
As soon as the GLOCK 42 arrived on the market, it was an immediate hit, especially with women. If you own one—or two—whether for home protection or CCW, you can up the ante on your accuracy with LaserLyte’s new TGL red laser sight for the GLOCK 42. It has three modes—constant on, pulse and off with an ambidextrous operation button. Don’t worry about adding bulk to your carry gun, LaserLyte’s TGL fits seamlessly on the GLOCK 42’s trigger guard.
SureFire E1D LED Defender Compact Flashlight
You cannot find a better tactical or self-defense light than SureFire. The smaller than palm-sized E1D Defender packs a powerful 300-lumen LED white light—perfect for self-defense, illuminating things that go bump in the night and also providing enough light for your peripheral vision. The tail cap push button activation also allows for a five-lumen, extended life low beam. As a last resort, the E1D Defender has a Strike Bezel for close-up self-defense. The light includes a 123A battery.
PMC Battle pack Pistol Ammo
PMC’s convenient battle packs let you store ammo long-term securely whether you are stocking up for a rainy day or for when stuff hits the fan. PMC Ammunition is reliable, clean and affordable. The battle packs are currently available in 9mm, .380 ACP and .45 ACP pistol calibers all with Full Metal Jacket bullets. The 9mm and .380 ACP vinyl battle packs contain 300 rounds, while the .45 ACP battle pack has 250 rounds packaged in 50 round boxes. The .45 is a 230-grain bullet with 850 fps. The 9mm is a 115-grain bullet with 1150 fps, while the .380 ACP is a 90-grain bullet with 961 fps. Priced competitively per round, these PMC battle packs are a smart way to stock up on bulk pistol ammo. I included a little something for everyone this week—competitors, NFA trust holders, pistol shooters and items for those focused on self-defense.
