Lyman Products Reveals More Than 40 New Products

Lyman Products showcase more than 40 new products and line additions for its Lyman, TacStar, Pachmayr, A-Zoom and Butch’s brands.

Lyman will be located in booth #12724.

The Lyman Case Trim Express is one of more than 40 new items coming from Lyman Brands in 2019.

“The SHOT Show is a key component of our sales and marketing strategy," said Trevor Mullen, VP of Global Marketing and Business Development. "It is the stage on which we reveal new products our R&D team have been developing all year to meet the needs of our customer base. It is also a great opportunity to see our retailer customers and meet new ones.”

Among the new Lyman introductions:

— Expansion of the Brass Smith line with the Case Trim Xpress, a faster way for rifle reloaders to trim cases. Available in either 115V or 230V, the Case Trim Xpress can quickly and accurately trim brass at a rate of approximately 15 cases a minute.

— The Universal Press Stand, the only press stand that will accept most current single station, turret and progressive presses of any brand. The all steel, heavy duty press stand allows the user to raise the press 9 ¼ inches above the bench surface.

— Tac-Mat Long Range Shooting Mats provide comfort and durability for long range, precision shooting. Tactical operators and varmint hunters will also enjoy the large footprint the mat offers, while still being able to roll the shooting mat into a compact, easy to transport size. The Tac-Mat will be offered in two versions: a basic design in 600D construction with a carry handle and shoulder strap, or the heavy-duty version (HD) in 1000D construction with elbow pads, a built-in bipod stop, carry handle and shoulder strap.

— Pachmayr Tactical Grip Glove, a slip-on grip for the "bird's head" grip found on the Mossberg Shockwave and the Remington Tac14.
