With regard to new products for 2012 to early 2013, there are several under consideration that I’ll mention below. As with most of our products, we produce small to medium runs. The idea is that with each subsequent run, we would make product improvements, based on our findings and customer feedback.
With product improvement in mind, we have discontinued the Guardian back-up sight. It will be replaced by Guardian II, a top mounted sight that will secure to any picatinny rail. It would be appropriate as a main sighting device for sub-machine guns, AR’s, and any firearm with a mount forward of the receiver. With AR’s, one will be able to co-witness the Guardian II with one’s main optic. In addition, the Guardian II may also be mounted on a .45° degree picatinny (not on 90° picatinny, like the original Guardian) for those who still need and want an off-set back-up sight. Because of the variability in picatinny railing and the rails relationship to the bore, the Guardian II will have greater elevation capability than its predecessor. We are planning an almost .120” of front sight elevation capability.
For pistol sights, we are considering three. We will eventually make all three, but in what order has yet to be decided. At least one will be presented at the 2013 shot show in Las Vegas: (1) Browning Hi-power; (2) CZ 75b; (3) the new HK 45 & p30 series (not the USP or 2000, at this time).
Other unveilings at shot show 2013 will include a light activated glow series of front sights. They’ll go by the handle of “Advantage Tactical Firefly Sight”. Also, hopefully, we’ll be showcasing our “Stealth Light” — an invisible light that makes our current florescent inserts glow when activated. Production is being negotiated, as we speak.
If it were not for customer feedback, we wouldn’t be able to improve our product line, before each subsequent production run. So, let us know what you think about the current changes, refinements you’d like to see, and new products.
