    This is where it all began, with our AR500 Armor Level III patented Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC) steel-core ballistic plates.

    Rifle-rated protection that’s easy on your wallet

    Our Level III armor is manufactured from AR500 steel and, with a 20-year maintenance-free shelf life due our proprietary FragLock coating, will outlast ceramic and UHMWPE body armor.

    Available in right and left handed configurations, our patented ASC affords you additional room for your rifle stock, improving comfort and shooting ergonomics. Compatible with all standard plate carriers that accept SAPI or traditional Shooters Cut body armor with appropriate chest plate pocket size.
