Defense Raven Concealment continues to fill the nest Rob Curtis July 3, 2015 Join the Conversation Raven Concealment Systems (RCS) just announced the appointment of Clint Lynch, right, as a Senior Product Designer. While you're unlikely to recognize Lynch's face, you may recognize his work. Lynch was the lead designer of Daniel Defense's upcoming 7.62 NATO gas gun (a prototype of which is featured in RECOIL Issue 19) and the lead US designer of FNH-USA's Mk. 20 Sniper Support Rifle. “Starting on my first day,” says CEO John “Chappy” Chapman, above left, “one of my top priorities was accelerating the new-product design process. These guys have so many innovative ideas, but with only two designers, there just wasn’t enough horsepower to push projects through to completion at the pace they needed. Adding another top-level designer was essential, and the whole management team was unanimous that we wanted to recruit Clint. We’re thrilled to have him join our team.” Lynch joins Senior Product Designer Eric Rice, center, and Product Designer Kyle Hendrickson, right. Lynch joins the company a week after RCS hired John Chapman as their CEO. “It’s exciting to join such a talented crew, and to be part of the creative process for an entire line of products,” says Lynch. “RCS aggressively encourages their design team to push limits –to be truly innovative—and as a designer, that is a really appealing environment to work in. Most of my career has been spent designing rifles and rifle accessories, so being thrown the brand-new challenge of designing more effective ways to carry a handgun is a welcome change. And the team they have assembled here is top-notch.” Lynch has been designing weapons and weapon accessories since 2002 when he started with Knight's Armament before moving to FNH-USA and then Daniel Defense. RCS says adding Lynch to the design staff is part of an ongoing push by RCS to expand their injection-molded product line in order to support a wider range of weapons and mission requirements.
