Safariland introduces FoxFury integrated light and handle for shields
The Safariland Group, a global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, has introduced its next generation Safariland PROTECH X Series ballistic shields featuring the FoxFury Taker B70 integrated shield light and handle.
The X Series lightweight shield with its integrated lens cap, combined with the feature-laden light / handle design, provides “a clean look and further reduces the overall weight.” Offered in two handle styles, Safariland partnered with FoxFury to develop the three-position integrated handle design offered exclusively in the Safariland brand of shields.
The X Series models with the FoxFury Taker B70 Integrated light and handle feature a LED light with the functionality merged into the handle design. The cord-free light is bolted to the shield through the handle and is powered by six CR123 batteries, which are incorporated into the handle, eliminating the need for battery packs and loose, external wiring typically seen on ballistic shield lights.
Two handle options are offered: the standard horizontal handle, or a three-position handle design co-developed by Safariland in partnership with FoxFury. The exclusive three-position handle is ambidextrous and features ergonomically designed pressure switches which are “easily activated by the thumb.”
The powerful light features two settings: On/Off setting or a tactical setting with three modes: momentary, continuous or Turbo-Strobe. The light also features a kill/deactivation switch so the light cannot be accidently activated.
The Safariland PROTECH X Series ballistic shield with integrated light and handle and is available in all X Series models at MSRPs ranging from $2,980 – $3,490 U.S.
