CONCEALMENT 8 New Firearms Products Rob Curtis Join the Conversation The tiny weapon-mounted light that the Internet loves to hate is getting some upgrades. The original XC1 put 200 lumens in a package that fit flush with the snout of a Glock 19. Sure, back in 2004 200 lumens may as well been a floodlight, but in this day and age it’s far less than most people want. The new XC1-B pumps up the lumens by 50 percent for 300 lumens of output running off of a single AAA battery. No, an X300U-B it ain’t, but it’s a helluva lot smaller. In addition to the upgrade in brightness, the XC1-B has improved controls, including the ability to turn it to constant on with your firing hand instead of juggling it around awkwardly.

Unlike normal dry-firing, a laser gives you a “hit” on target. Unless you have a dedicated laser trainer like a SIRT, you’ve got to rack the slide every time to get that trigger pull. iMarksman launched a new product that automatically resets a Glock trigger (Gen 1-4) and also has the ability to actuate a laser training cartridge — all without cycling the slide. Essentially, this allows you to turn any Gen 1-4 Glock into a SIRT trainer. Make: iMarksman Model: Glock Resetting Trigger MSRP: $175 URL: imarksman.com Magpul is looking out for your backside. The company’s got a line of wallets made from its crazy strong, super thin, lightweight, technologically advanced, high-capacity, low-calorie, performance-driven, budget-friendly, ATF-approved, deep-cycling, space-saving, less-filling, mysteriously named DAKA material. Like the ultra-minimalist DAKA Essential wallet, the Everyday Wallet’s made to carry only the essentials. In this case, that’s as many as seven cards. But it’s got a clear window pocket out front for an ID and an extra pocket in the middle for some cash. So, if you like the idea of reducing your wallet bulge with a DAKA, but couldn’t commit to a wallet without room for your library card or photo of your mom, here you go.
