Tactical operations often require the breaching of glass obstacles. This can be necessary during vehicles extractions, while working with barricaded suspects, or when responding to hostage situations. XS Sights Systems’ CSAT GAT (Glass Assault Tool) provides a rapid and effortless means of breaching automotive or cosmetic glass while keeping both hands on the primary weapon system. The XS Sights’ CSAT GAT will let operators remain ready to properly address the threat or engage combatants immediately before, during and immediately after glass breaching actions.
The XS Sight Systems’ CSAT GAT (Glass Assault Tool) was developed by Master Sergeant (Retired) Paul Howe. Howe is the lead instructor for Combat Shooting and Tactics (CSAT) and a senior manager with Triple Canopy Law Enforcement Training. Howe spent 10 years with U.S. Military Operations as an assault team leader, sniper, and senior instructor.
The XS Sight Systems’ CSAT GAT is easy to install. It slips over any standard A1/A2 flash hider and is held in place by a compression fit with two screws. “We attached four GATs to rifles in our Basic Swat course and students shot over 500 rounds. They did not come loose or change their zero,” Howe says.
The CSAT GAT is made with an aluminum housing and all-steel components. Suggested retail price is $80. Available directly from XS Sight Systems.
More officers and law enforcement agencies are adopting 9mm caliber weapons.
