Detroit, Mich. (Ammoland.com) – IDENTILOCK®, the world’s first biometric fingerprint trigger lock for firearms, is proud to announce their support of the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s program, Project ChildSafe®, through the annual Friends and Family campaign. An IDENTILOCK has been chosen as the grand prize for the final week, June 4 – 8, 2018, of entries.

Project ChildSafe was developed by the NSSF to promote firearm safety through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm Safety Kits. The kits included a cable-style gun locking device and a brochure (also available in Spanish) that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals. Since 1999, more than 15,000 law enforcement agencies have partnered with the program to distribute more than 37 million firearms safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and five US territories. Project ChildSafe has helped raise awareness about the safe and responsible ownership of firearms and the importance of storing firearms securely when not in use to help prevent accidents, theft and misuses.

IDENTILOCK keeps personal defense pistols safe and secure from unauthorized users.

“It is IDENTILOCK’S mission to keep unintentional usage of a firearm from happening yet allow the lawful owner to have quick and easy access to his/her method of self defense in a time of emergency,” Omer Kiyani, founder and creator of the IDENTILOCK system, explained. “It is an honor to work with Project ChildSafe in their efforts to spread gun safety and responsibility messaging to all firearms owners in the United States.”

The IDENTILOCK biometric fingerprint firearm trigger lock was designed to allow firearm owners to keep a self or home defense handgun accessible in a nightstand, desk, purse, car or pack while at the same time keeping it safe and secure from any unauthorized users.

Quick to deploy, the system uses a 360-degree fingerprint reader (and up to three users) to disengage the locking system from the trigger lock, instantaneously. The IDENTILOCK system is ruggedly built to withstand years of abuse and environmental conditions. Available in several models to accommodate the most popular handguns.

In tests measuring terminal performance through ordnance gelatin as well as ordnance gelatin with additional barriers such as heavy clothing, steel, wall board, auto lass and plywood, Remington Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition is a top performer in head-to-head testing.

At the heart of the new line of ammunition is the ground-breaking Black Belt bullet – developed utilizing the stringent FBI Barrier Test Protocol for optimal performance.

Like the venerable Golden Saber, the Black Belt bullet is constructed of a brass jacket and hollow point cavity with spiral nose cuts. Additionally, this new product features the innovative Mechani-Lokt belt and hourglass shape that firmly locks the core and jacket together at the mid- and rear sections. A double measure to prevent core and jacket separation for high weight retention and predictable penetration even when encountering the toughest barriers. These key characteristics collectively provide consistent expansion, penetration and weight retention for absolute predictable terminal performance. Finally, the driving band located at the rear of the bullet insures proper alignment in the bore for maximum accuracy.

Additional benefits and features of Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition include:

  • Optimized primer for consistent ignition and reduced muzzle flash
  • Corrosion resistant nickel-plated cases for reliable feed and function
  • Flash suppressed powder for minimal muzzle flash
  • Waterproof seal at neck and primer pocket for added reliability

Initial offerings include loads for 9mm Luger (standard and +P), 40 S&W and 45 Auto cartridges.

Grey Ghost Precision Announces MKII Version of Precision Rifles

Manufacturer Redesigns Most Popular Rifle Models.

Grey Ghost Precision GGP MKII Light Rifle in 5.56 NATO
Grey Ghost Precision GGP MKII Light Rifle in 5.56 NATO

Lakewood, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- Grey Ghost Precision, leading manufacturers of accurate, reliable, and attainable weapon systems, is excited to announce the MKII versions of their most popular rifles, The GGP Heavy (.308 WIN), GGP Light (5.56 NATO) and the GRIM (6.5 Creedmoor).

Grey Ghost spends no time, wasted on production – partnering with only the best in the industry, to ensure that every product that goes out the door is worthy of it’s name, the team at GGP worked tirelessly to revise the previous models, guaranteeing the perfection that we know and expect.

The GGP Heavy (.308 WIN) is an extremely accurate semi-automatic rifle that fits the specific requests from sources operating in Afghanistan. The team at GGP coupled these demands with evaluations from Special Forces marksmanship instructors, competition shooters and avid hunters, and developed one of the most innovative and cutting-edge rifles in the in the DMR space.

Built with the GGP MKII 7075-T651 billet upper receiver and GGP MKII 7075-T651 billet ambi lower, the Heavy measures an overall length (with the extended GGP MKII Extended length (15″) M-LOK hand guard) of 38”, and a mere 35” when collapsed; and weighs in at 8.3lbs. It carries a 16″ .308WIN match grade BBL. 1×10 twist, 5/8-24 threaded muzzle with a GGP muzzle brake and Black Nitride coating in and out.

The GGP Light (5.56 NATO) is a real-world application rifle, which is as effective in home defense as it is on the battlefield. Designed to achieve a durable, reliable, affordable, accurate and attainable 5.56 rifle—all without compromising quality, the light is intended for hard use and everything that goes with it.

Built with a GGP MKII 7075-T651 billet upper with M4 feed ramps, and a GGP MKII 7075-T651 billet ambi lower, the GGP Light measures an overall length of 37” (stock extended), and 34” (collapsed); with an overall weight of 6.6lbs. Donned with a 16″ 5.56 BBL. 1×8 twist, 1/2-28 threaded muzzle with a GGP muzzle brake, and Black Nitride coating in and out.

The GGP MKII Grim (6.5 Creedmoor) came to light, after shooters began experiencing the accuracy potential of the Grey Ghost Precision catalog of rifles in other calibers. Several competitive shooters in the precision rifle circuit desired a gas gun that gave their beloved 6.5 Creedmoor round a platform, that maintained all the advantages of a modern semi-automatic sporting rifle – without compromising accuracy, consistency and performance. GGP worked to produce the GRIM, an exceedingly accurate 6.5 Creedmoor rifle that fit the specific requests of experienced snipers and PRS shooters looking for the ultimate tack driving instrument that would not only compete with other 6.5 Creedmoor rifles, but win.

“We decided that it was time to step away from the proprietary platform of the original GGP rifles, and remove all compromises; making the MKII versions much more user friendly and simplified,” stated Grey Ghost Precision, VP of Firearms, Jason Curns. “With the focus being that of a more simplistic, yet versatile design, the MKII versions are now lighter (almost a full pound less on each platform) and maintain tighter tolerances across the board.”

Curns, formerly at Mega Arms, was the lead designer in the GGP original platforms, is the brains behind the redesign; cutting everything down to its roots and building up again.
