Meopta Introduces Red Dot Sights to its ZD Tactic Series and 4-16×44 RD Riflescope

Meopta Introduces Red Dot Sights to its ZD Tactic® Series –

the M-RADTM and M-RAD MicroTM  Battle-Ready Reflex Sights –

and ZD 4-16×44 RD Riflescope

 

Three new, highly-accurate options for L/E, Competitive Shooters and Hunters

 

HAUPPAUGE, NY, January 15, 2013 – Meopta USA, a global leader of military optical sighting systems and sports optics, is expanding its tactical offerings with the introduction of two new military-grade reflex sights.  The M-RADTM and

M-RADTM Micro red dot reflex sights were developed for rapid, virtually parallax-free target acquisition across multiple calibers and weapon platforms.  Both are dependable, rugged sights designed to speed target acquisition and increase shooter accuracy.

 

The robust M-RAD reflex sight is engineered to withstand the rigors of real-world combat. Teamed with a wide range of firearms – from shotguns to rifles ­– the M-RAD greatly increases shooter accuracy and speed in military, L/E and competitive shooting scenarios. The M-RAD can be used as a stand-alone sight or be mounted to a primary riflescope for situations that require a rapid change from distant targets to eyes-wide-open engagement of close quarter threats.

 

The versatile M-RAD Micro reflex sight is a more compact, lighter weight version of the M-RAD and can be used on handguns, shotguns and AR rifles.  This sight greatly increases shooter accuracy and speed in hunting, 3-gun competition, personal defense and L/E applications. The M-RAD Micro’s miniature profile also makes it ideal for mounting to a primary riflescope for situations that require rapid change from distant to close quarter shots.

 

The new ZD Tactic® 4-16×44 RD riflescope with illuminated Mil-Dot reticle is designed for use by Special Forces, L/E snipers and professional target shooters at distances up to 800 meters. Featuring an adjustable objective for setting zero parallax at distances from 3 meters to infinity, the ZD 4-16×44 RD is exceptionally accurate. ZD tactical target turrets features .05 Mil Rad positive click-stop adjustments for unparalleled repeatability. The elevation turret allows calibration of bullet drop to virtually any known distance and can be easily reset to zero. Featuring an RD illuminated Mil-Dot style reticle, the ZD 4-16×44 enables the shooter to determine quickly and precisely the exact distance of an intended target at almost any range.

Action Target Releases New Line of Rimfire Steel Shooting Targets

 

PROVO, Utah – January 15, 2013 – Action Target is pleased to announce the release of a new line of steel targets specifically designed for .22 rimfire ammunition. The new Rimfire Steel product line includes seven reactive targets in addition to the rebranding of three existing targets (Rimfire Dueling Tree, Rimfire Spinning Jack and Rimfire Plate Rack).

This announcement comes in conjunction with the start of the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas where the Rimfire Steel line is being debuted in Action Target’s exhibition booth.

“With the rise in ammo costs, we’ve been getting a lot of requests from customers for a greater variety of targets specifically designed for rimfire ammunition, so we decided to add an entire product line to meet the demand,” Chad Burdette, Action Target’s portable target product manager, said. “With the release of seven new products at once, this is our biggest launch ever, and there is no better place than SHOT Show to do it.”

The new targets in the Rimfire Steel product line include the Rimfire Rectangle, Rimfire Buffalo, Rimfire Mini Gong, Rimfire Tactical Torso, Rimfire Hostage, Rimfire Tactical Hostage and Rimfire Bullseye.

The shooting surfaces of all the Rimfire Steel targets are made of through hardened 1/4″ AR500 armor steel, a slightly thinner version of the 3/8″ AR500 armor steel Action Target uses to manufacture its handgun grade targets. While 1/4″ armor steel is capable of handling greater ammunition loads, the reactive portions of the targets (which are painted light blue) are engineered to function best with the force of .22 rimfire rounds.

“We wanted to set our Rimfire Steel line apart from other .22 targets,” Burdette said, “so we built them to last for years and added blue paint to create a signature look people can recognize.”

The Rimfire Steel product line gives customers access to the durability and quality design of Action Target steel targets at a lower cost with prices ranging from $45 for the Rimfire Spinning Jack to $165 for the Rimfire Bullseye to $225 for the Rimfire Plate Rack.

Those attending SHOT Show can receive free shipping on the Rimfire Steel line or any other portable target by ordering at Action Target’s exhibition booth. The new targets will also be available for purchase online starting Tuesday, Jan. 15.

Boberg Releases Smallest 9mm Semi-Automatic Pistol

 

LAS VEGAS, NE — Boberg Arms Corporation announced the release of the Boberg XR9-S. The Boberg XR9-S is the world’s smallest and lightest rotating-barrel, locked breech semi-automatic pistol. Combining power, accuracy and soft-recoil, the Boberg XR9-S was created out of a need for a smaller, more effective, hand gun.

Utilizing the patented XR™ Feeding Technology, the XR9-S cartridges are loaded nose forward into the back of the magazine. Live rounds are lifted straight into the chamber, eliminating the need for a feed ramp. This design allows a much longer barrel than other subcompacts, and it is rated for +P ammunition.

The corporation’s founder, Arne Boberg, created the XR9-S after noticing the need for a smaller, more powerful firearm. He said, “I have been an avid gun builder, user and collector my entire life. Looking at the gun market in 2003, I noticed that many manufacturers were taking their big guns and chopping them off to create smaller guns. Unfortunately, these guns were losing power and reliability. I knew that these smaller guns needed to be reinvented, not just repackaged.” Originally designed for self-defense, it is also an accurate range gun.

Boberg Arms customers value the XR9-S not only for its accuracy, but also for its artisanal hand-craftsmanship. Parts are hand fitted for optimal tolerances and the smoothest attainable action. The frame is billet aluminum and the slide billet stainless steel. Devin L., a customer from Florida, says, “I was really impressed with the quality of this pistol. A friend of mine compares it to the craftsmanship of a Swiss watch. I would agree.”

For more information on the Boberg XR9-S and other Boberg Arms Corp. products, please visit theirwebsite.
