SOLKOA Survival Systems – New Brand Name Clears Up Market Confusion

Monday, December 30th, 2013

Colorado Springs, CO, January 2014 – SOLKOA, Inc. www.solkoa.com recognized their civilian brand Fastfire did not effectively communicate their many non-fire survival products so they have initiated SOLKOA Survival Systems www.solkoasurvival.com for their new consumer survival products line.

With more than 200 years of combined instructor experience among its professional staff, SOLKOA, Inc has been quietly producing a wide variety of highly-specialized emergency survival capabilities along with its expert instruction for the U.S. military and other high-risk organizations since 2005. Please stop by at SHOT Show booth 32513.

SOLKOA’s specialized military survival gear usually contains sensitive items that will never be available to the civilian market, but SOLKOA’s Fastfire brand created some market confusion making it difficult for SOLKOA to clearly promote their expanding civilian product line.

The SHOT show directory lists their overall corporate name SOLKOA, Inc. and they will be in booth 32513in the law enforcement and military areas; you should drop by and visit with them, they are the real deal!

So from now on the civilian products line will be SOLKOA Survival Systems.

LAS VEGAS, NV – Arsenal Inc. is happy to announce the new SLR-104UR rifles. Available immediately, this highly sought after configuration in an equally desirable caliber, is in stock and ready to ship.

The SLR-104UR may be the most popular stamped receiver “Krink” configuration in the industry. In the past, even parts kits have commanded a high premium when they have been available, and now you can own this desirable rifle, ready to roll, along with Arsenal, Inc’s legendary quality and warranty and the very low MSRP of $1,249.00.

The 5.45×39 caliber SLR-104UR rifles feature a stamped receiver, hammer-forged and chrome-lined barrel, and left-side folding polymer stock. The SLR-104UR ships with a 30-round magazine and is manufactured with numerous end users in mind.

For those who prefer the NFA Short Barreled Version (SBR), it is ready for a qualified gunsmith to register with the BATFE and shorten the barrel, immediately utilizing an original 24×1.5mm muzzle device on the factory threads on the front sight block.

Battle Holiday Zombies With The Nerf Zombie Strike Tactical App

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Williamsburg, Virginia – Hunter Research and Technology is pleased to announce a new Zombie Strike theme for the Nerf Mission App, developed in partnership with Hasbro. Featuring great artwork by UI designers at Manifest Digital, the Zombie Strike theme features a zombie-inspired heads up display, Zombie Strike blaster arsenal, and all new Zombie Strike missions. This update of the Nerf Mission app also include a special long range heads up display for the new Nerf Centurion MEGA blaster.

The Nerf Mission App works with the new Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Rail Mount Accessory and turns any rail-equipped Nerf blaster into a full battle cam with heads up display, compass, inclinometer, and rangefinder. The app lets users record photos and videos, track their arsenal, learn about hand signals used to communicate with a squad, and plan out different missions for multiplayer Nerf battles.

The Nerf Mission App is based on the Theodolite Augmented Reality Navigation app developed by Hunter Research and Technology. This game-changing app defined a new standard for augmented reality navigation when it debuted in 2009, and has been a #1 selling navigation app in iTunes stores around the world. Theodolite works as a heads up display with compass, GPS, map, zoom photo/movie camera, rangefinder, tracker, and two-axis inclinometer.

Theodolite is great for outdoor sports, hiking, boating, hunting, golf, sightseeing, photography, and navigation. The app is used in the field every day by surveyors, geologists, architects, engineers, military personnel, competitive sportsmen, and search and rescue workers. And in October, Apple featured Theodolite being used at the Great Wall of China during a special event.

The Nerf Mission App with Zombie Strike theme is available for free from the iTunes App Store, just in time to battle zombies during the holiday season. The app works with most iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 6.0 or later. The Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Rail Mount Accessory is for ages 8 and up, and sold separately. See Nerf online for more information and a list of retailers.

Theodolite is available on the iTunes App Store for a 50%-off 4-year anniversary sale price of $3.99 USD, and is the perfect holiday gift or purchase for outdoor enthusiasts, professionals, students, teachers, and high-tech gadget lovers (it’s also great for battling zombies). Theodolite runs on any camera-equipped iPhone or iPod touch. Theodolite HD runs on any camera-equipped iPad or iPad Mini. More information, including screenshots, is available on the Hunter Research and Technology website. Media professionals interested in reviewing Theodolite can request a promotional code to download the apps from iTunes at no cost.
