Default AR500 OMEGA ARMOR GROUP BUY! Option for RHINO LINER!

This was also posted in my subforum

The ULTIMATE in fragmentation protection! We are now offering RHINO LINED plates! An INDUSTRY FIRST!! We extensively field tested our plates and our Rhino Lined plates have absorbed impacts from .308 (4 rounds) from 50 yards and Glock 27 .40 (9 rounds) from 10 yards without any frag escaping the carrier! Want to see the video??? Click on the link to order, scroll down, and the video is attached in the product description!!

We are going to open up this group buy for just 30 purchases! As of now, I am limiting the amount of purchases to just 2 sets (of your choosing/configuration) per person.

Here is the other thing.... It is going to take some time to get all the work and the coating done. So, even though you must pay now, I will say this product will ship in likely 6-7 weeks (hopefully sooner though). If you are not getting them coated, I can definitely get them out a little sooner, but don't expect it to be much sooner. We are moving a LOT of armor! I have to make sure I fill all orders....even the ones outside of the GB. What I can promise you is that you will be receiving a QUALITY item that will be well worth the wait...that I can guarantee you! I want the wait time to be clearly understood. I can give you my word I will do everything in my control to get these out as quickly as possible.

OK.... Here is the pricing structure you have been waiting for. This is a pretty significant discount compared to my advertised web prices. Hope you all take advantage. Once they are gone...they're gone!

ALL PRICES INCLUDE FREE SHIPPING!



To ensure I only sell 30 of these at this special pricing, I have actually raised the prices for each package combination by $50. However, I have created a coupon code that can only be used 30 times. To purchase at these prices, you must use coupon code CALGUNS-GB-ARMOR (all CAPS for it to work). After the product is added to your cart, you must go and check out. At the check out, that is when you will find a spot to enter the coupon code. After the coupon code is entered, you will see the $50 removed at the bottom as "order discount"


- (2) FORMED 10"x12" Plates: $104.99
- (1) Flat and (1) FORMED 10"x12" Plate: $89.99

- ADD 6"x6" FLAT SIDE PLATES: $19.99
- ADD 6"x6" FORMED SIDE PLATES: $26.99
- ADD 6"x8" FLAT SIDE PLATES: $29.99
- ADD 6"x8" FORMED SIDE PLATES: $36.99

- ADD RHINO LINER (no side plates): $40.99
- ADD RHINO LINER 6"x6" SIDE PLATES: $54.99
- ADD RHINO LINER 6"x8" SIDE PLATES: $58.99

I have set up 2 different links for ordering. They are all based on your primary front/back plate configuration. So, select one of the links below to choose the options you want to add.


(2) FORMED 10"x12" OMEGA PLATES - CLICK TO ORDER AND CHOOSE OPTIONS

(1) FLAT and (1) FORMED 10"x12" OMEGA PLATES - CLICK TO ORDER AND CHOOSE OPTIONS

Feel free to reply with "IN" or whatever after you purchase. Thanks again for all the support guys! We greatly look forward to making this a huge success!

Thanks for all the orders. Just 14 sets left!

Also, we are no longer doing the 4 bends. We now have custom tooling and we are making one continuous bend. Nothing wrong with the 4 bends, but this just speeds up production for the press brake guys.... and looks good too! Will post pics in a few.

Thanks for the orders guys... just 6 sets left.

In about 7-10 days we should have all the plates dropped off at our local Rhino installer. Then after that, I am hoping for a week turn around time. So, I'd say 2-2.5 weeks these should get mailed out.

Thanks again!!

Thanks for all the orders guys! I have updated the thread in my subforum as well.

We have made excellent progress. We have built a custom die to make the bend a "continuous" bend. We used to press these in 4 different locations. The bend radius is still exactly the same, so it will still fit perfectly in the BCS carrier. This is a pretty big advancement in our forming process.

Here is a batch then went to sandblasting the other day. This batch only had about 115 plates. However, I'm happy to report all the plates are going to Rhino on Wednesday of next week. We will be dropping 400 plates (90% formed, 10% flat) and a TON of side plates. Rhino said to give them a week.

Below are progress pictures, and picture of the blasted plate (prepped for Rhino), and a picture of the new and improved "single bend radius".

Thoughts??

Now all we need is a group buy for carriers... Do you have any pull with Beez Combat Systems for a discount on the BCS carrier made for your plates?

We're working it. I'm in close contact with the owner and something should be coming very soon. Like I stated elsewhere, you CANNOT beat the quality of BCS's products!

Thanks again!!

Default Plate Carrier for AR500 Omega Armor Trauma Plates

Calguns members,

This is our first post on the forum and we look forward to becoming a contributing member,

We were introduced to the forum by TheTargetMan. Over the passed few weeks we have been working to design a plate carrier to support his AR500 Omega armor trauma plates.

When we first received the plates we were very impressed with the plate cut, thickness, Rhino liner coating and quality. TheTargetMan has taken steel plates to a whole new level.

At first we were just going to use our standard plate carrier and make the pocket smaller to fit these plates. But the more we worked with these plates the more we realized we wanted to change the design and really build the carrier around the plates.


Right now we have two versions. A Low Profile and Molle with 2 waist strap. Our understanding is that many of you have purchased side plates as well. We are working on a couple different prototype concepts to support the side plates.

Here is a link to the two different versions:
http://www.beezcombatsystems.com/Plate-Carriers_c4.htm

Please post your questions, comments, ideas and recommendations so we can work together to build and improve the plate carrier.

Thanks,
Beez

+1 interested in the 6x8 side panels on your carriers. May I suggest straps on the side that we can easily add or remove side panels for the plates?

Beez, do you have pictures of what the Plate Carrier pads look like? Do they sit in the pockets of the carrier to just cushion the plates from your body, or between your body and carrier to absorb sweat, etc too?

Default Plate Carrier for AR500 Omega Armor Trauma Plates

The PC pads are designed to provide additional comfort and airflow. They are attached to the PC with velcro. The velcro on the PC also provides a way to attach a soft armor backer if not being used with a soft armor vest.

Here is a pic of the loop that runs on the inside of both the front and back of the PC:


This pic show the PC pads attached:

Been debating for some time, but finally pulled the trigger on a set of front, rear and side plates with rhino liner.

Thanks for the orders. We now curve our front plates and side plates with single-radius custom dies. Here are the side plates as we were forming them. Now only do they look better, but production time speeds up also

Thank you as well. We have been really cranking these out. Ever wonder what 400 pieces of AR500 formed trauma plates looks like?

We are starting to ship out the orders this week for both the uncoated plates and the coated ones. Keep your eyes out for an "order complete" email!

Thanks again!!

Do you still recommend soft armor backers for these plates if they are lined or is the Rhino lining good enough to prevent spalling?

No need for soft backers!

We are the first to pioneer this fragmentation mitigation. We have tried Line-X, kevlar sleeves, herculiner, and "Pep Boys" (lol) generic bedliner products and for the money, this is the best alternative we can come up with. Without too much arrogance, it is quite impressive

I have disclosed that we use Rhino Lining "Tuff Grip" that is applied between 1/4"-3/8" in thickness. I will say that we don't use the standard primer. We tested our plates with Rhino's standard primer and though it caught all the fragmentation, it blew off in chunks, thus exposing bare metal after the first impact. We now use a commercial primer (G13 classified ) not offered through Rhino to prime our plates. Took 8 samples to get this right through our testing!

Remember, we're an "industry first" to offer this. Other companies may be trying to capitalize off our hard work, R and D, and testing. I hope everyone considers "business ethics" when making the decision of who to purchase their armor from.

Thanks,

TTM

So, basically, this is a steel plate right? Kevlar/ceramic vests are nice because they are relatively lightweight.
