FLIR Professional Grade Clip-On Thermal
When an entire operation could depend on a single trigger pull, professionals choose Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro thermal clip-on weapon sights
WILSONVILLE, OR The stakes can be life or death whenever a soldier, law enforcement officer or professional hunter pulls the trigger. That’s why expert operators demand the Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro family of clip-on thermal imaging weapon sights.
Available in five distinct models, the Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro is a rugged, solid-state, uncooled, long-wave infrared 1x (unity magnification) clip-on thermal imaging device designed to mount in front of a variable-magnification day sight on precision rifles and tactical weapons. It can also be used as a stand-alone thermal weapon sight or as a handheld monocular that features an integral compass and inclinometer for enhanced target ranging.
Utilizing proven FLIR TAU-2 Technology, Apollo Pro is offered in 336×256 and 640×512 pixel formats with professional-grade 50mm or 100mm Germanium (Ge) objective lenses, creating a wide variety of performance options to match the demands of any deployment.
Based around common core electronics, signal processing, and an infinity focused large-format collimating eyepiece, the Armasight by FLIR Apollo is available in a variety of options that cater to every military or commercial application. Installation of the Apollo Pro clip-on sight is easy, repeatable, and reliable, based on a user-friendly MILSTD- 1913/ Weaver/Picatinny rail-compatible quick-release locking mechanism.
As a 1x stand-alone weapon sight, solid-state reticle adjustments and software algorithms combined with a complementary color pallet ensure maximum reticle contrast and high-level accuracy that can’t be achieved with mechanical adjusters. Apollo Pro also offers a tracking electronic zoom (e-zoom) function that can progressively increase from 1x to 2x to 4x and 8x (640×512 format only) without changing the point of aim.
Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro models use a multi-pin connector to provide video-out/video-in capability, as well as external power supply and support of accessories. An optional laser range finder, external battery pack, multispectral laser and other accessories designed to attach via the MIL-STD-1913 rail of the Zeus Pro are available.
An included five-button wireless remote allows operation and modification of the Apollo Pro imagery without having to remove hands from the weapon. The Bluetooth©-capable Apollo Pro can also interface with ballistics and control applications on most smart phones.
Apollo Pro models feature a user-friendly dual-power option of either four 3.0V DC CR123A batteries (all oriented in the same direction to prevent confusion in replacement) or four 1.5VDC AA batteries pre-loaded in a cartridge. Designed to operate even in the chaos of unexpected deployments, the Apollo Pro also offers a special power-management feature, which provides just over an hour of operation with a single 3.0V DC CR123A battery.
The Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro represents the most rugged, versatile and sophisticated Armasight clip-on product available for soldiers, police officers and professional hunters who want to add full thermal capability to their existing daylight weapon systems.

Copper Basin Takedown Firearm Backpack
This low-profile backpack now fits a wider array of firearms.
Nampa, Idaho (dateline) – Copper Basin™, LLC, manufacturers of innovative, lightweight bags and packs for hunting, hiking and low profile firearm storage, proudly announces the next generation of its Takedown Firearm Backpack. The low-profile backpack now fits a wider array of firearms.
“When we created the Takedown Firearm Backpack, our goal was to make it blend in and be as unassuming as possible. We chose nondescript colors and materials and avoided things like molle, solid black coloring, velcro or anything else that gave the outside observer any indication that a firearm was being transported. The backpack is purpose built, ready for rapid deployment and it looks great,” said Gary Cauble, Director of Sales and Marketing for Copper Basin.
They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts and although the Takedown Firearm Backpack doesn’t appear to be a purpose-built, tactical firearm transport case, it most certainly is. To start with, it has a quick access top flap for rapid removal and deployment of firearm components. This quick access top flap is part of a complete fold open design for easy access to components and gear at the range or in the field. The pack’s dimensions have been designed to accommodate a variety of firearms with installed optics and bipods. Layers of structural foam obscure the rifle’s signature contours and the interior of the pack’s pockets have been lined with fleece to protect the firearm and reduce noise.
The exterior design features have not been forgotten and include features like multiple pockets sized for storing essential gear, a rugged construction with heavy duty zippers, webbing and materials and a stowaway strap that allows the pack to attach to the back of a seat for covert car storage. MSRP is $99.99.
The Takedown Firearm Backpack is compatible with variety of firearms including the following makes and models:
• Alaskan Lever Action Takedown Rifles
• Century Arms AK Pistols
• Century Arms Draco Pistols
• Henry® Survival AR-7 Rifle

Springfield Armory Introduces Latest SAINT AR-15 Model
GENESEO, ILL. (June 12, 2017) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the newest edition of the SAINT™ series: the SAINT with Free Float Handguard. Like the original model, the new SAINT proves once again that high performance and upgraded features do not have to mean high price.
To further add value the latest version of the SAINT starts with a patent-pending Free Float Handguard (FFH) system with pinned low-profile gas block allowing the operator to grip the full length of the handguard without impediment. The hard-anodized aluminum FFH design accepts M-Lok accessories for easy, almost unlimited customization. The rock-solid pinned gas block runs wobbly set-screw alternatives right off the battlefield.
Elevation-adjustable, flip-up front sight, and dual aperture flip-up rear sight can be folded down or utilized to co-witness with optics. Bravo Company trigger guard and Bravo Mod 3 pistol grip surround the enhanced nickel-boron coated, single-stage GI trigger resulting in an incredibly crisp, grit-free break.
Upper and lower receivers are forged type III hard-anodized aircraft-grade 7075 T6 aluminum, locked together with Springfield’s Accu-Tite™ system to defeat the shake and clatter that plagues many AR-15 rifles. The M16 bolt carrier group is precision-machined, the bolt made from Carpenter 158 steel, shot peened and magnetic-particle inspected for durability. The 16-inch barrel is premium chrome moly vanadium steel with a 1:8 right-hand twist, chambered for 5.56 NATO (.223) to stabilize a wide range of ammunition types. Chamber, bore and exterior are all Melonite® treated, for second-to-none durability in the field.
With its ample cheek weld comb, dense butt pad, six positions, and tight rattle-free fit, the Bravo Company stock feels reassuringly solid when shouldered. The mid-length gas system and H-style heavy tungsten buffer lessons felt recoil, for fast and accurate follow-up shots. Combat-refined pistol grip and trigger assembly promote an effective fighting position. At 6 pounds 9 ounces unloaded, the new SAINT is nimble and well balanced – a significant advantage during long hours of practice, patrol, or in the heat of battle.
World-class design, engineering and components make the new SAINT AR-15 a worthy ally in any encounter. But the real advantage is how it feels –plinking, practicing, competing or defending. And with an MSRP of just $1049, the new SAINT with Free Float Handguard delivers premium performance at an incredible value.
