Defense Technology’s Latest Tactical Equipment at SHOT Show
New products include 4-Shot 40mm launcher
ONTARIO, California – Defense Technology® today announced the release of the 40mm Tactical 4-Shot Launcher, and 40mm eXact iMpact® and Direct Impact™ Adjustable Range Rounds at the 2016 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 19-22.
“These new additions to our product families further illustrate Defense Technology’s ongoing leadership in creating novel solutions to address tactical gaps in the market,” said Dave DuBay, Vice President, Less Lethal. “Defense Technology’s commitment to the men and women of the law enforcement, corrections and military communities has long been established with innovative products, coupled with superior training solutions. Domestically, Defense Technology has helped restore order in every major civil disturbance of the 20th century and has supported our troops from the second world war to today’s war on terrorism.”
Enhancing the family of launchers from Defense Technology, the 40mm Tactical 4-Shot Launcher, produced in collaboration with Lewis Machine & Tool, a precision gun manufacturer, provides an economical choice for the industry over traditional multi-launchers, while providing excellent tactical advantages. In addition to being the lightest weight tactical multi-launcher on the market, the Tactical 4-Shot is equipped with a quad rail and features an advanced pump action.
The 40mm eXact iMpact Adjustable Range Round and 40mm Direct Impact Adjustable Range Round have the ability to engage subjects from five feet to 70 meters to deliver the same energy throughout these distances, in a single round. Until now, this could only be accomplished through two independent munitions. The patented design allows velocity and kinetic energy to be adjusted for two design points for close-in and extended range engagements. As tactical engagements are fluid in nature, the ability to transition from close to extended range in a single round, while providing point of aim, point of impact accuracy and energy is an industry first.
The 40mm Tactical 4-Shot Launcher (Model 1440) in a black anodized finish will be available in the second quarter this year with an MSRP of $1,899.00. The 40mm eXact iMpact Adjustable Range Round and 40mm Direct Impact Adjustable Range Round (Models 6325-A, 6320-A, 6322-A, 6323-A and 6326-A) available in the first quarter this year, will be offered in the $29.00 to $35.50 MSRP range, depending upon payload.
