Anyone have feedback on spartan armor systems?
Crap. I have no idea now lol. So many options. Def needs to stop m855. Anything is better than what I had nearly 20 years ago.
This is probably where one should ask @THEIS what would be the best body armour plates that are easy for USA civilians to purchase.
You'd probably want the lightest & most comfortable ones that could still stop AP .308 and preferably AP 30-06
I guess however if something was rated to only stop AP .223 but was super light and easy enough to carry around all day then it might be worth it since you'll wear it more than the heavy stuff.
After some research, it seems the company CCGK is a military and LE contractor. If this YouTube review does not convince you, maybe buy a single level 3 plate and test it? The price is too expensive if it's only a paint ball or airsoft one.Say what! I saw an ad for these Chicom plates, wondered about them if they were real or paint ball / air soft.
Will anything stop .338 and above?
In seriousness, I recall one platemaker (I cannot remember for the life of me which but I have their site written down somewhere) stating theirs will stop a .338 but I'd take that with a grain of salt. Maybe at the very end of its trajectory, if it had slowed down enough and lost enough power, but I think it would still hurt like the dickens and you'd probably want something soft underneath to help with the impact, and I don't think you'd want to take more than one bullet from it.
Group buy opportunity? People I know who wouldn’t have been interested previously are asking more often about what to keep on a hanger in the closet.
I’ve got Infidel light weight plates and they cost a bit more but less than 5lbs apiece instead of 9+ apiece for ar550.I only have a iii from them, but infidel body armor multicurve is very nice for the price, and they often have some bundle packages from time to time for good deals for good gear.
