March 15, 2018 (Redmond, WA) – Multiple sniper teams will be putting the B.E. Meyers & Co. MAWL-DA and IZLID 200P to work illuminating targets at extreme distances as they shoot their way through the grueling night stages of the Annual USASOC Sniper Competition. This is a five-day, combat oriented event designed to test and honor the best teams from throughout the Special Operations community as they compete for coveted silent bragging rights. It is slated to run 18-23 March, 2018 in Fort Bragg, NC.


The MAWL-DA (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser – Direct Action) is a high power infrared and visible green aiming and illumination laser for individual carbines. Offering improved ergonomics, interface, and performance, the MAWL-DA has been engineered from the group around the needs of the modern night fighter. It incorporates cutting edge VCSEL technology which eliminates the current problem of inconsistent granular, speckled illumination. This unparalleled beam quality is leveraged with multiple modes of divergence and power, based on ideal settings for any operational environment.


The IZLID 200P is a compact, lightweight infrared (IR) laser pointer and illuminator small enough for hand held applications or mounted to a variety of weapon platforms. It is powerful enough to effectively support joint fires, or can be easily adjusted to support weapons mounted applications with illumination beyond 800m.

“We are excited to be a part of the USASOC Sniper Competition this year,” said Chuck Vlasek, B.E. Meyers & Co. Business Development Manager. “This is a great opportunity to support and engage with the Special Operations community whose input has played a major role in shaping our products and successes.”

Attendees are invited to visit the B.E. Meyers & Co. sponsor table on March 22nd and 23rd on Range 37. Mr. Vlasek will be providing overviews and insight into B.E. Meyers and Co.’s extensive line of Defense Solutions including: the MAWL-DA; the IZLID series of IR and SWIR pointers and Illuminators; the GLARE RECOIL advanced Ocular Interruption System (OIS); and more.
