WTS/WTT: Make Your Rifle Plates Safer- Spall Guards
PLEASE USE IM FOR QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS
CHECK OUT MY ARMOR BLOG: http://www.drmorgear.wordpress.com
With so many folks offering high quality steel rifle plates, thought this would be a good time to offer a deal on my handmade spall guards. When using steel (and sometimes even ceramic plates), bullet impacts that do not defeat the armor will result in spall (fragmentation/splash) that can injure or even kill.
These slip-on spall guards will be custom built to fit ANY steel or ceramic rifle plates, and completely envelope the plate. A special form of Kevlar 129 on the strike face will trap fragments within the guard.
NEW VERSION (4.2.2) is made with IR spec Coyote 1000 Denier Cordura nylon on the outside, a special variant of Kevlar 129 as the defeat material, and has full 360 degree spall/splash protection.
PRICING: $49 each + shipping, $93.25 for a pair + shipping. Just send an IM or email with how many guards you want.
PRICING IS FOR 10" X 12" RECTANGULAR OR TRAPEZOIDAL PLATES. Smaller or larger plates can be accommodated, just ask for pricing.
THESE ARE DESIGNED TO WORK WITH THE FOLLOWING PLATES:
THE FOLLOWING PICTURES SHOW STEEL PLATES WITH TRUCK BED LINER. NOTE THAT THE IMPACTS REMOVE THE LINER, RENDERING THE PLATES LESS EFFECTIVE FOR FOLLOW-ON SHOTS (Thanks to VFLORES915 for use of the pictures):

My guards to not exhibit ablation due to material choice.
Factors that make these the best spall guards you can get:
1) Non-permanent, replaceable deployment- can swap the guards between plates.
2) Elegant, low-drag solution- no duct tape 'n gorilla glue here.
3) Effective- in tests, cuts down on spall by nearly 98%.
4) Low weight, small size- adds less than 4 oz. per plate, and less than 1/4" thickness total. COMPARE to Rhino Lining, which adds nearly 3/8" thickness and nearly half a pound, or metallic solutions which add even more weight.
5) Durable- specialized, non-fraying ballistic defeat material and ultra tough 1000 Denier Cordura nylon.
6) Extra protection to the plates- helps prevent dents, dings, chips and cracks in your rifle plates. Think of them like seat covers for your new car, but with more oomph!
7) Is engineered- Truck bed liner is not particularly effective unless it is troweled on thick. These guards use cutting edge, specialized Kevlar material.
8) Multi-Hit Effective- Truck bed liner works well for approximately 4 rounds, at which point its spall absorption drops dramatically. Spall guards remain effective longer, and are easily replaced after use.
9) Odor free- Lined plates have a strong chemical odor that can persist for months.
10) IT WORKS- Other "solutions" using woven Kevlar try to throw more material at the problem, but they fail, because woven Kevlar does not work very well against small, high velocity fragments. Duct taping old vest material also lowers your CDI* factor.
