Written by TR Staff

Rock River Arms LAR-47 Rifle

Rock River Arms, Inc.’s LAR-47 in 7.62x39mm is a hybrid design that comprises the versatility of the AR-style platform with the popularity of the AK-style rifle. New for 2012, this proprietary design, billet A4 upper and lower receiver was developed to accept standard AK-47 magazines in the highly reliable LAR platform. The system is available in a 16-inch chrome-lined HBAR, 1:10 RH twist barrel. LAR-47 is equipped with many RRA designed components that include a chromed 7.62x39mm bolt carrier group, along with a RRA Delta brake muzzle device and RRA two-stage trigger group. Other features include the RRA LAR-47 trigger guard, and ambidextrous magazine release. For more information, visit www.rockriverarms.com or SHOT Show booth#14271.

 

FLIR LS-Series Thermal Night Vision Camera

The FLIR LS-Series is the newest compact thermal night vision camera designed specifically for law enforcement. Rather than officers rushing on the scene with a flashlight that instantly gives away their position and only illuminates their immediate area, FLIR LS is just as portable, and exponentially more effective. Officers can see in pitch-black conditions where traditional night vision fails. Users can see through smoke, dust and light fog. Even light foliage and camouflage are powerless against thermal imaging. For more information, visit www.flir.com or SHOT Show booth #1409.

 

SureFire X300® Ultra LED Weapon Light

The powerful and versatile SureFire X300 Ultra Weapon Light features a high-performance LED that generates 500 lumens of stunning white light focused by a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens to produce a tight beam with extended reach and significant surround light for peripheral vision. The virtually indestructible and highly efficient LED generates tactical-level light for 1.5 hours per set of batteries. The high-strength aerospace aluminum body is Mil-Spec hard anodized for superior toughness and is O-ring and gasket sealed to make it submersible to 22 meters. For more information, visit www.surefire.com or SHOT Show booth #13968.

 

TRU-SPEC® Signature Gunny Line™

The TRU-SPEC® Signature Gunny Line™ was designed alongside celebrity spokesperson Gunnery Sgt. R. Lee Ermey, USMC (Ret.) — popularly known as ‘The Gunny.’ The Signature Gunny Line™ includes  the Signature Gunny Line™ Tactical Boot-Cut Pant constructed from a rugged, yet lightweight 6.5oz polyester cotton rip-stop material and featuring a boot-cut fit; the Signature Gunny Line™ Ultralight Tactical Shirt with a mesh back cape for added breathability and protection;  the Signature Gunny Line™ Tactical Vest designed to have all the features officers need without being bulky; the Signature Gunny Line™ 8-Point Cover, Gunny’s favorite eight-point Marine Corps style cover; and the Signature Gunny Line™ Backbacks – Tour of Duty and Tour of Duty Lite, both designed as a traveling pack that fits any lifestyle or situation. For more information, visit www.truspec.com or SHOT Show booth #10970.

KDH Defense Systems ATPC-SPEAR Vests

The ballistic shape used in the ATPC-SPEAR from KDH is based on the U.S. Special Operations SPEAR-shaped ballistic panels. The SPEAR ballistic shape is a battle proven design that combines ballistic coverage and operator mobility, which are two phrases that normally oppose one another. In addition to the many standard features of the ATPC-SPEAR, it can also be used with the KDH CORELOAD™ weight reduction system. The CORELOAD™ allows the weight of the vest to be moved from the shoulders to the hips similar to that of an alpine backpack. By using a padded MOLLE belt coupled with a semi-rigid spinal insert, the CORELOAD™ distributes the weight of the vest affording the operator the sense of carrying a lesser load.

Ear Phone Connection Bluetooth Microphone
The NIGHTHAWK Bluetooth Clip-On Microphone delivers unprecedented full-shift 12+ hour talk time, no connectivity loss, 128-bit key Bluetooth encryption, and fully functional PTT. Depend on the NIGHTHAWK’s durable, rugged housing for long-life use. The Nighthawk can also be paired to multiple Bluetooth devices, including Bluetooth compatible smartphones. The NIGHTHAWK Bluetooth Clip-On Microphone addresses several major concerns in officers’ safety and uniform apparel (officers at risk during an altercation of being choked out by the long coiled cable of a traditional speaker microphone). The NIGHTHAWK delivers many cost-saving benefits: less wear and tear on the radio; less cable fractures; and no uniform alterations.

Tactical Electronics Under Door Camera

The Tactical Electronics Under Door Camera provides wireless inspection of rooms behind closed doors.
