Ares Armor Product Engineer, Jon Zum, designed the Derma Plate Carrier from first hand experience during multiple combat deployments with inferior issued armored carriers. The exclusive, custom Ares Armor – AustriAlpin COBRA™ Buckles allow for quick donning and removal of the carrier. The triple bungee cummerbund positions plates close to the body projecting a power profile appearance while increasing the amount of coverage provided by plates as compared to bulkier carriers. Lastly, the maritime release reduces the possibility of drowning with its 6-inch pull fall away feature.

The Derma Carrier is an adjustable, low profile, lightweight armor carrier that encompasses the virtue of simplicity. The Derma Plate Carrier will do the following: carry plates and work with Molle Mag Pouches on the side interior and exterior.

Features of the Derma include 1000 D Cordura Construction, custom Ares Armor AustriAlpin COBRA™ Buckle, Loop Velcro on both the front and back, moisture wicking spacer mesh internal, S/M to fit small through medium plates, L/XL to fit large through extra large plates.

SilencerCo Releases Salvo 12: First Commercial Shotgun Suppressor

West Valley City, UT - July 21, 2014 | Confirming its place as a trailblazer in the firearms industry, suppressor manufacturer SilencerCo has unveiled the first commercially-viable shotgun silencer ever produced. The company made the announcement today at an exclusive event near its Utah headquarters.

Every year, millions of sportsmen and women venture into the field to hunt. While advances in technology have spurred a record-breaking proliferation of rifle and handgun suppressors, shotgun owners have been without a real solution for sound protection. Some choose hearing protection in the form of earmuffs or plugs for relief in controlled environments, but most spurn their use in the field or in a home protection scenario, where the ability to detect other sounds is critical.

SilencerCo Salvo 12 Shotgun Suppressor

The new product, named the Salvo 12, provides a much needed option for shooting enthusiasts.

“The Salvo 12 represents a revolution in silencers, not just an evolution,” asserts Joshua Waldron, Chief Executive Officer for SilencerCo. “There is a huge installed base of shotgun hunters and shooters that has been waiting for a product like this for a long time, and we are proud to deliver it.”

In addition to its inherent novelty, the Salvo 12 is a modular design that allows the shooter to add or remove sections to balance length, weight and sound suppression needs. It arrives as a 12 inch suppressor, but can be reduced to 10, 8 and 6 inch configurations as needed. 

For SilencerCo, answering the call for new products is nothing new. Since its origins in a Utah garage in 2008, the company has earned a fiercely loyal customer base by pioneering much-needed advances such as this. Among many others, its first and best-selling product, the Sparrow 22, is the quietest and easiest-to-clean rimfire suppressor on the market. The Osprey pistol suppressor still holds the only eccentric design in existence, allowing the host gun to maintain a flat sight plane.

Adding value to the sale, the Salvo 12 will carry with it the same celebrated lifetime warranty as all other SilencerCo products. To learn more or to find out how to purchase a SilencerCo Salvo 12, visit

Concern Kalashnikov Comments on U.S. Sanctions

Since, the introduction of the latest U.S. sanctions against the Russian small arms manufacturer, Concern Kalashnikov, we have seen some blather that this will be of little consequence to Russia. Given the increased effort to market civilian firearms to the United States through RWC Group LLC among other entities, along with the partial privatization of these firearms manufacturers following continued financial difficulties, it is of the best interest of any company to have open trade with customers offering the highest demand for their products. 

Earlier this year Concern Kalashnikov announced plans to deliver 80,000 to 200,000 firearms to the U.S. and Canada per year. The consideration of sanctions from other NATO nations should certainly be taken into account. In response to the latest sanctions, Concern Kalashnikov released an interesting statement, which you will find below. Clearly they have taken their own view point on the issue. We seem to think there is plenty of supply from U.S. firearms manufacturers stateside and from international manufacturers to fill the demands of U.S. consumers. 

Clearly, the Russian manufacturer is offering a specific brand to their popular products, but somehow alternatives will present themselves to fill a gap. Barring any immediate change and not considering other sanctions from the U.S. or other nations, perhaps Russia will look at this action as a mere blip on the radar. However, we are sure the company itself will certainly consider this a huge hit to its bottom line, which decides its viability. Ultimately this will fall back on the state as 51% of its ownership still falls under their control and private shareholders certainly won't be happy with the hit given their recent contributions to revamp a failing business. 

Concern for "Kalashnikov" is part of Rostec (Russian State Company for the promotion of military and civilian weapons) and the United States is an important market for civilian weapons. It should be noted that the production of "Kalashnikov" in the U.S. enjoys high demand, pre-order of civilian products is three times the annual volume of deliveries. Thus, taken in relation to "Kalashnikov" sanctions the U.S. government goes against the interests of American consumers

Concern "Kalashnikov" (formerly NPO "Izhmash") - Russia's largest producer of automatic and sniper combat arms, guided artillery shells, as well as a wide range of civilian products - shotguns, sporting rifles, machines and tools. The company was founded in 1807.

Included in the State Corporation Rostec. "Kalashnikov" United large state enterprises Infantry branch of Russia (NGOs "Izhmash" JSC and "IMZ"). In the future, the concern will include Vyatskie Polyansky Machine Building Plant "MOLOT", KBAL, LN Koshkin. Products are exported to 27 countries, including USA, UK, Germany, Norway, Italy, Canada, Kazakhstan and Thailand. State Corporation "Russian Technologies" (Rostec) - Russian corporation was established in 2007 to promote the development, production and export of high-tech products civil and military purposes. It includes 663 organizations, of which 8 are currently formed holding companies in the defense industry, and 5 in civilian industries. Rostec organizations are located in 60 regions of the Russian Federation and deliver products to market more than 70 countries. Rostec revenue in 2012 amounted to 931 billion rubles ($26.07 Billion), net profit - 38.5 billion rubles ($1.1 Billion). Tax payments to the budgets of all levels exceeded 109 billion rubles ($3.12 Billion).
