Default AR500 Body Armor - FORMED and FLAT AVAILABLE!

I have been selling my AR500 Body Armor for quite some time now. This is marketed as the infamous "Omega Armor". Omega Armor is a trade name for a higher quality, lab certified AR500. Basically, Omega Armor is AR500, just a more consistent grade through the process in which it is milled.

Here are my prices on my body armor. I'm currently really low on stock as these move very fast. However, I will be receiving more next week and will be able to fill every order, unless I just receive tons and tons and exceed my supply. All the armor has been cut, but I'm waiting on the forming and shot blasting.

All the edges have been gone over with a grinder to remove the sharp edges, thus protecting the lift of your carrier.

Here are my prices as packages. This pricing is exclusive to Calgun members. I will fire off invoices next week should you request a set. All orders will ship within 7-10 days, but hopefully much sooner. If there is a delay on getting them back, I will post here so you are not left in the dark. I am BIG on communication and feel my customers must stay informed at all times.

Remember, these are raw steel. You paint. Save BIG!

Remember, PM me if you are interested. The master sheet these were cut from is Lab Certified AR500. Though each individual plate has not been "lab tested", these meet the standard for Level III Body Armor as defined in NIJ 0101.06

Package 1

Pair of FORMED (curved) AR500 Omega Plates 10"x12" $105 SHIPPED

Package 2

Pair of FLAT AR500 Omega Plates 10"x12" $80 SHIPPED

Package 3

One FORMED / one FLAT AR500 Omega Plates 10"x12" $95 SHIPPED

Pair of 6"x6" FLAT Side Plates

Package 5

Pair of FORMED AR500 Omega Plates 10"x12" $140 SHIPPED
Pair of 6"x8" FLAT Side Plates

Package 6

Pair of FLAT AR500 Omega Plates 10"x12" $105 SHIPPED
Pair of 6"x6" FLAT Side Plates

Package 7

Pair of 6"x8" FLAT Side Plates

Package 8

All,

I have had overwhelming interest in these plates. I plan to add them to my site within the next day or two. I will post up a link to which you can order from.

Thanks again!

I have not tested them with those specific impacts. These are rated at level III protection, meaning they will stop (6) Nato 762 from 50 yards. Each individual sheet has not been "lab certified". The master sheet in which they have been cut from is lab certified and all of the Brinnell Hardness Specs are on every sheet that I purchase.

Also, the NIJ 0106 is very specific....and costly. The 6 impacts are placed equidistant from each other in temperature controlled conditions.

I will say I have shot my plates from various ranges with various projectiles.... 20 yards- 200 yards. I have used 30-06, 308, 762 FMJ, 223, all pistol calibers, and shot gun slugs.

People have also performed independent testing on my product. PM me if you are interested and I will be glad to share the link. I will not post it since it is on another forum. The testing was very successful. People have shot my plate with 55gr 223 from very close range and it has failed, but that is an EXPECTED failure and people just sometimes don't understand what Level III armor is designed to protect against. It does NOT protect against all threats.

Other manufacturers here in AZ buy their plate from the exact same source I get mine from and they swear up and down they have shot them with 55gr 223 from close range with zero penetration.... I don't buy it one bit. It was either further distance, not 223, or a much smaller grain count 223.

Anyhow, here is a good table so you can see the specifics behind Level III armor. Level III armor is extremely sufficient for 95% + of the threats the average Joe, LEO, or whomever would encounter.

Will you be selling the side plates separately (or in pairs of 2) without front/back plates? Will the coupon code only work for a single armor package or will it discount $10 off each set?

Engi,

Sorry for the late reply. I will be selling the side plates by themselves. I am going on vacation Thursday morning and won't return until the 12th. When I get back, I will make the side plates available on the site. The coupon code will work whether you buy 1 or 50 sets.

For everyone else, tonight is the last night to order until I get back.

Thanks again for all the orders thus far! We truly appreciate it.
