These Panels come from government contractors DOD, State Dept. These companies spared no expense when purchasing body armor and bought the most expensive, and state-of-the-art equipment at that time (especially when the government reimbursed them for 100% of all security expenses).These panels are 100% made in the USA. These panels have had all sensitive and classified information (Contractor name, Company logo, government contract number, employee name, employee SSN#, and employee blood type) physically removed with a box cutter from the panel (see photos). Unfortunately, the Model, Model number, Date of manufacture, and size information had also been removed in the process. This is a great opportunity to get reliable, American made, personal protection for a great price! Excellent (see condition guide below).

It also provides protection against the threats mentioned in [Types I and IIA]. 8.1 g (125 gr). 357 SIG FMJ Flat Nose (FN) bullets at a velocity of 448 m/s ± 9.1 m/s (1470 ft/s ± 30 ft/s). 15.6 g (240 gr). (SJHP) bullets at a velocity of 436 m/s (1430 ft/s ± 30 ft/s). 357 SIG FMJ Flat Nose (FN) bullets at a velocity of 430 m/s ± 9.1 m/s (1410 ft/s ± 30 ft/s). (SJHP) bullets at a velocity of 408 m/s ± 9.1 m/s (1340 ft/s ± 30 ft/s). It also provides protection against most handgun threats, as well as the threats mentioned in [Types I, IIA, and II]. The NIJ tests all vests without the trauma plates (soft armor only). A trauma plate will absorb more of the blunt trauma impact than soft armor.
It is important to note that Level II-A, II and III-A all stop the overwhelming majority of pistol projectiles you are ever likely to encounter (plus 12 gauge, OO buckshot), and also to know that NO armor is ever 100% bulletproof under ALL conceivable circumstances. However, these ratings often have a safety margin for penetration because blunt trauma is usually the limiting factor in certification. For example, Level II body armor would likely stop the III-A test standard, (9 mm submachine gun at 1400 fps) from actually PENETRATING through the Level II vest.
But, the Level II vest would fail on blunt trauma impact the NIJ deems any dent greater than 1.7 44 mm. On the soft clay test surface, a FAIL. So, the advantage in increasing protection Levels from II-A, to II, to III-A, is NOT so much protection from PENETRATION of pistol fire, but a significant reduction in the blunt trauma received. The Department of defense (Military body armor has no expiration date) and the National Institute of Justice Research have concluded that.
Performance is not affected by age or physical condition. " Old Armor Tests as Good as New". National Institute of Justice Research. " NIJ tests failed to demonstrate any significant differences in 10-year-old armor, regardless of the extent of use or apparent physical condition".National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC). Unissued (employee quit before deploying overseas), never worn. Minor cuts from having classified information removed with a box cutter (see photo). Unworn (Issued to someone who had a desk job) very few signs of use or wear.
Like new, may have minor cosmetic stains. Minor cuts on gortex cover from having classified information removed with a box cutter (see photo). Moderately worn (Employee only wore vest when going on patrol or outside the wire), with some signs of use or wear.
Might have markings (name) on panels. May have some cosmetic wear with fading, tears, stains, tape residue, scratches, and minor abrasions. Heavily worn (Employee wore vest every waking moment in a desert environment) heavily worn with obvious signs of use and wear. Cosmetic wear on the outer shell with fading, tears, markings (name), sweat stains, embedded dirt, and curling. Bunching of Kevlar at the bottom of the panel.
These panels have major cosmetic defects. Absolute bare minimum for personal protection! In addition, YOU are responsible to ensure that your ballistic panels are positioned inner side IN, and outer side OUT if applicable (check the inside vest panel label). I do not cover any consequential damages.
