Q. What is the NIJ Standard-0101.06 – Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor?
A. The NIJ Standard-0101.06 establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armor intended to protect against gunfire. This minimum performance standard is a revision of NIJ Standard-0101.04 (2000) and supersedes the NIJ 2005 Interim Requirements, NIJ Standard-0101.04, and all other revisions and addenda to NIJ Standard-0101.04. This standard is a technical document that specifies the minimum performance requirements that equipment must meet to satisfy the requirements of criminal justice agencies and the methods that shall be used to test this performance. It can be used by body armor manufacturers and purchasers to help determine whether specific models meet the minimum performance standards and test methods identified in this report. The standard was developed in collaboration with the Office of Law Enforcement Standards (OLES) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and produced as part of the Standards and Testing Program of the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice (NIJ).
Q. What exactly is Level 3+ or Level III+ Armor?
A. Level III+ body armor features an improved ultra hard ballistic steel core further enhancing performance of the level III, with nearly a 30% increase in core strength. All while maintaining the same industry leading stand-alone, multi-hit performance and stress fracture resistance as level III body armor. Capable of defeating higher level rifle threats, Level III+ armor offers enhanced ballistic protection against 5.56×45 M193, 5.56×45 M855/SS109, and 7.62×51 M80 Ball & Black Tip AP (.308) rifle threats.
Q. What does the numerical specification of an optic mean?”
A. The first number in an optical specification represents the magnification of the optic. If the optical device is a fixed magnification it is represented by a single number followed by the letter “x”. If the optical device is a variable magnification it is represented by a set of numbers followed by the letter “x”. The second number in an optical specification represents the diameter of the objective lens in millimeters. For example, 7×50 binoculars means the binoculars have a fixed magnification of 7x with a objective lens diameter of 50mm. Furthermore, 1-6×24 riflescope consists of a 1-6x magnification with a 24mm objective lens.
