I would love to get some details on the Princeton Tec Switch Rail light. You have a few pictures of it above. I carry a KelTec PF9 and have been waiting for a small frame simple rail light to drop in the market. This looks like it may meet my needs. Do you have any information about when the will be available and what the price point will be. It is not on Princeton's site so I'm assuming they were introducing it at SHOT. Much thanks.

Thanks a million for the great coverage!

If you make it over to the Sig Sauer booth and can wrangle a rep, could you inquire about plans to release more versions of the new P227? There's three out now but I'd love to see an Equinox finish. Thanks!

I checked their website (great company, not-so-great website) and I saw what I think are rifle and carbine length handgaurds. Talks about length and a kit with barrel nut and a picatinny accessory rail, so I am guessing that is what it is. Need to see some pictures though. If its like everything else they make it is probably pretty sweet!!

I just picked up one of their billet sets in purple, which is why I'm curious. I haven't bought a rail yet... Although the new lancer carbon fiber rails looks sweet.

ITS Visor Marker Panel (VMP)

While keeping the original, albeit smaller, functionality of the legacy VS-17 signal panel in blaze orange and violet, we’ve also added a separate panel with a large American Flag screen printed on one side and black on the opposite side.
