Also on display will be the .22LR Rifles, Semiautomatic Tactical, Lever Action Rio Bravo and Pump Action, the NTA training ammunition, and the recently launched Polymatch.
Polymatch Projectiles are coated with a unique special polymer layer, with no lead exposure, resulting in reduced smoke emissions during firing and reduced lead residue accumulation in the barrel, when compared to conventional lead projectiles. The polymer coating of the Polymatch projectile also provides less barrel heating and friction than jacketed projectiles, thus extending the life of the weapon.
Developed in the main calibers of ammunition for handguns in different projectile weights, CBC Polymatch ammunition offers excellent cost-benefit, enabling constant training. In operational ammunition, the company will present the expansive Bonded ammunition and the new generation Pro Shock CBC, which has a projectile design developed with a special construction technique, offering superior ballistic performance.
Both events take place at the BASE Armalite complex, in Itu (SP). For more information about the Defense & Security Experience access the site www.dsexperience.com.br and W2C Brazil 2022 at https://w2c.pro.br
