Israeli company FAB Defense, a leader in the field of development, production and marketing of accessories for small arms, unveiled several new products intended mainly for the American market.
The first product is the Front/Rear Backup Sight (FRBS) Offset Kit for AR-15 rifles. The new sights offer the user a collapsing pair of fully adjustable iron sights for when the primary optic becomes inoperable or unsuitable for the shooting situation at hand. According to FAB, the main features of the sights are their low folded profile, availability in both right and left side variations, accurate aiming and simple installation. The sights are made from a hard polymer which makes them cost-effective, lightweight, and also durable. Each sight takes up a single slot on a standard 1913 Picatinny rail, and clamps onto the rail via an Allen head screw.
FAB also released the Gradus-M, the latest addition to the company's Gradus line of accessories. The Gradus-M is an M-LOK attachable "stubby" fore grip with several features that make it a solid performer in a wide range of applications. According to the company, the multitextured rubberized finish enables users to maintain a steady and comfortable grip in cold, warm, wet, or dry conditions. The slightly reduced angle provides comfort and prevents wrist and arm fatigue over hours of use, the company said.
The third product released by FAB is the GL-Core M stock, a replacement for the GL-Mag stock. The GL Core M is a tactical buttstock with a multi-textured rubber buttpad and an integrated AR15 5.56 style magazine carrier. The GL-CORE M has ambidextrous rear QD sling swivel connectors molded and includes an interchangeable buffer tube adapter to provide compatibility with both Mil-Spec and Commercial buffer tubes. The stock is provided with one Ultimag 10 round AR magazine, according to FAB.
FAB claims that GL-CORE M is intended to provide law enforcement officers with an extra magazine when they are required to utilize an AR-15 in the line of duty. Typically, law enforcement officers have easily accessible spare magazines for their sidearms on their belt. Officers rarely carry spare magazines for their AR15/M4, and usually have only the one that is in the rifle when they remove it from a patrol vehicle. With GL-CORE M, officers will have the standard 30 round magazine in the rifle as well as one stored in the buttstock for easy access under high stress situations, the company said.
