[SHOT 2024] Strike Industries Next Generation Squad Weapon Cable Management System

Strike Industries, a major player in the firearms accessories sector, turned heads at SHOT 2024 with their newly released cable management system specifically designed for Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW). The system is designed to allow thread through and conceal the cables by rail-mounted accessories such as rail covers, grips, and attachment points. This state-of-the-art system, which has performed favorably in military trials, earned commendations for its innovative design which prevents damage to and snagging of critical cords.

In an interaction with the media, representatives from Strike Industries expressed their excitement and pride about the Cable Management System (CMS). “If I had to pick a product that is at the top and one of the ones we are most proud and excited about, it would have to be our CMS,” one representative said.

The company developed the product with a primary focus on functionality and affordability for the consumer. The result was a product that exceeded expectations in utility and cost-efficiency.

“This was one of those things that we just wanted to do, have it work well, and make affordable to our consumers,” the representative continued. “It really has been just an added bonus with the extra military attention it is getting.”

With a likely chance of landing military contracts, the company can look forward to gaining wider recognition in the defense sector.

Given the response from the military and consumers, Strike Industries’ cable management system is poised to leave an indelible mark on the firearms accessories industry. The system checks boxes for both practical field usage and for being a cost-effective solution for managing cables, thereby enhancing the overall weapon handling experience.

    SSD also posted images of a XM7 intended Pmag with markings for 6.8x51mm so a package is coming together. I am guessing the cable management will be for remote pads as the XM157 optic has a IR/laser module built in.

      @Kinetics I am going to disagree.
      First, the 1-8 smart LPVO basically justifies the 6.8x51mm. XM157 may be expensive but it’s what makes the difference between M14’s failure and possible success.

      Second, with force on force on the menu, IR/ visible laser/light though still in place loose ground as the other guy are going to see them too. So night fighting will probably shift more passive. Using NVG and Thermal on the scope. Vortex stated they were working to make a thermal device module for XM157 as a future upgrade.
      Legacy optics I don’t think are going away at least not yet it’s just that they will probably remain on M4A1. As the M4A1 weapon returns to its PDW role it should shift to smaller sight's, lighter smaller ancc and upgrades to make it better suited to Personal Defense.

      Third, the Army’s stated aim seems to be following the same game plan here the Marines did with M27 establishing a common configuration of the rifles. Rather than the piecemeal approach of the past. Take the M27 for example it started as the IAR then that same configuration became the infantry rifle. A grip pod and a Acog with PEQ. Then with a LPVO in place of the Acog it became the M38 but once the Marines adopted the VCOG they basically standardized the configuration across the infantry rifle squad. From auto gunner to DMR the same scope, same accessories same everything. Basically a package deal.

      White lights are a thing I will agree. And that may be part of what is going to come next. I just doubt a conventional PEQ will be sported on issued XM7 or XM250. Perhaps if the USMC joined in on NGSW okay, as they would likely be putting together their own pics of optic and accessories.

      finally, yes. Yet then again look back to the turn of the millennium vs today. Back in 1999. The only Soldiers with optics on their rifles in the U.S. military were SOCOM. By 06 it was hard not to see an optic on a combat rifle.
