American Reserve Munitions Announce Flashless Gunpowder

Developed to keep our military targets and law enforcement safe in low to no light conditions, ARM’s new flashless gunpowder to be marketed under the Stealth brand and available commercially.

Las Vegas, Nev. / Horseshoe Bend, Idaho (January 2019) – American Reserve Munitions (ARM), producers of quality ammunition for quality shooters, will be launching several new products at the 2019 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 22 – 25, 2019 at booth #1459. In a game-changing announcement, ARM will be announcing the development of a flashless gunpowder designed to suppress the flash of a weapon discharge, thus preventing the location of the user to be disclosed.

Flashless powder cartridges have been a major benefit to military and law enforcement operators engaged in close quarter combat from the blinding light that occurs when a firearm is discharged and momentarily disorients or blinds personnel. For home defense, the same principal gives homeowners a tactical advantage in low light conditions. Additionally, because there is a very low flash, the user can get back on target 33% faster because there is no eye adjustment to the flash of light in the dark.

“Flashless propellants became a critical requirement during World War II for the Navy and its Allies,” Vaughn Wilkes of ARM said. “Within the military and law enforcement communities, the same requirement for stealth during a combat situation has been in demand for ground troops. We are very excited to be able to now offer this option to the men and women that serve our communities and country and responsible citizens.”

The new flashless gunpowder and flashless gunpowder cartridges will be available through a new American Reserve Munitions brand called Stealth.
