A second piece is supported on the first piece for sliding movement relative to the first piece in the belt direction between a plurality of positions at varying distances from the clamp location. The second piece has a loop configuration defining a belt passage for engaging the belt at a location spaced apart form the base and thereby supporting the second piece on the belt. The second piece is movable on the first piece in the belt direction whereby the belt passage on the movable piece can be set at a variable distance from the clamp location of the base.
A holster support assembly for use by a user wearing a belt may be adjustable for both drop and cant. The assembly includes a belt support that engages and is supported by the user's belt, the belt support defining a plurality of drop positions spaced apart along the track to enable the user to set the drop position of the holster. The assembly also includes a holster mount supported on the belt support for sliding movement relative to the belt support, the holster mount configured for supporting a holster. The holster mount has a first condition in which the holster mount is engaged with the belt support thereby blocking rotation of the holster mount relative to the belt support, and is selectively movable into a second condition in which the holster mount is rotatable relative to the belt support about an axis to enable the user to set the cant position of the holster relative to the belt support. The assembly may include a pull member for helping the user to move the holster mount relative to the belt support, and a blocking insert for blocking movement of the holster support into the second condition.
A wireform attachment mechanism, or support arm, that can be used to attach an earcup to a helmet. The outer end of the support arm can be opened to release the earcup, or closed to clamp onto the earcup.
A collapsible stock assembly for a firearm includes a stock body defining a buffer tube passage for slidably accommodating a firearm buffer tube therein An adjustment slit communicates with the buffer tube passage along a forward portion thereof A first adjustment mechanism calmed by the stock body includes a buffer tube engagement element that can extend into the buffer tube passage and is selectively positionable by a first operating lever A second operating mechanism includes a second operating lever that is operable to selectively compress the adjustment slit Disengaging the first adjustment mechanism automatically disengages the second adjustment mechanism Excessive force on the stock in several embodiments automatically disengages both adjustment mechanisms and minimizes damage to stock assembly and/or buffer tube
A firearm bore cleaning device includes a flanged cleaning head with an axially extending shaft having an attachment section and a flange mounting section, the attachment section being adapted to attach to a flexible cable assembly. The cleaning head includes at least one deformably resilient flange extending radially from the flange mounting section, and has a larger radius than the attachment section. The flange, flange mounting section and a portion of the attachment section can be integrally molded from an elastomeric material. The firearm bore cleaning device is urged through a firearm bore such that a wall of the firearm bore squeezingly engages the flange and is wiped to remove residue from the bore. The head may include an enlarged flange that removes residue from the firearm chamber. A plurality of spaced additional flanges are provided to maximize cleaning of the bore.
End plate sling adapter securable to a rifle for a sling, includes a fastener element, sling adapter clamp and locking insert. Sling adapter clamp has a collar defining a central opening extending therethrough, and a pair of fastener housings arranged at respective ends of the collar defining a gap therebetween. Each housing receives a fastener therein such that the fastener extends across the gap and is adjustable to reduce its width. Locking insert has an upper portion with a threaded cradle accommodated within central opening and meshing with a threaded portion of a rifle buttstock receiver extension, and a lower portion extending into the gap.
A firearm sling assembly includes an anchor adapted for connection to a firearm, a strap forming a single loop and adapted for wearing around a user's neck, and a quick-release mechanism releasably attaching the anchor to the strap. The quick-release mechanism includes a first element having a key groove defined therein, a second element having a key channel defined therein, the key channel extending between a first opening adjacent the key groove and a second opening away from the key groove, a key slidably disposed in the key channel and retractably engaging the key groove through the first opening, a biasing element acting between the key and second element to bias the key into engagement with the key groove, and a release element disposed on the second element and displaceable relative thereto to disengage the key from the key groove.
A non-lethal ammunition comprising a projectile having a nose component, a driving band adjacent the nose component, and a base component, wherein a densified material is used to control weight distribution of the projectile to improve flight, stability and delivered impact energy of the projectile and the nose component includes features to maximize impact surface area. The projectile is positioned within a shell having a high pressure and low pressure propulsion system which minimizes velocity variance of the projectile.
F42B 10/00 - Means for influencing, e.g. improving, the aerodynamic properties of projectiles or missiles; Arrangements on projectiles or missiles for stabilising, steering, range-reducing, range-increasing or fall-retarding
F42B 12/00 - Projectiles, missiles or mines characterised by the warhead, the intended effect, or the material
Handgun locking apparatus (18) for securing a handgun (11) in a holster (10) includes lever member (20) including body (19) having forward and rear end portion mounted to holster (10) and spring element (19A) projecting forwardly and outwardly from front end portion of body (19) for contacting interior surface of holster (10) for biasing body (19) against handgun (11). Locking flange (26) on forward end contacts handgun (11) to positively engage a portion of handgun (11) and inhibits withdrawal thereof from holster (10). Operating arm (20) extends rearwardly from rear end portion of body (19) to move the locking flange (26) away from handgun (11). Positioning member (30, 31) is affixed inside holster (10) for engaging handgun (11) inserted in holster (10) to position a portion of handgun (11) in contact with locking flange (26).
