Advanced Combat Solutions designs advanced weapon systems

and firearm hardware, providing proven tactical superiority for law enforcement and military engaged in high threat level environments. Our patented firearm component technologies focus on conservation of motion resulting in combat advantage.

LEMI - Light Emitting Magazine Indicator

The LEMI allows the operator to visually check ammunitions quantityremaining in the magazine during low-light and zero-light conditions, making it indispensable for nighttime operations. Our exclusive and minimal low-light signature makes it easily viewable by the operator only, and is directly faced at the operator when the magazine is inserted in the weapon’s lower receiver. Superior build materials ensure proper performance under extreme environmental conditions, and in the unlikely event of inoperability,LEMI does not affect standard magazine use.

ICSI - Illuminated Chamber Status Indicator

The ICSI is a combination extractor with integrated illuminated chamber status indicator, enabling the operator to verify visually the condition of the weapon’s chamber - irrespective to time of day. It also facilitates tactile weapon’s chamber check with gloved hands, either visually, or direct to brass. As with all ACS products our superior build materials ensure proper performance under extreme environmental conditions, and in the unlikely event of inoperability, ICSI does not affect standard extractor use.

Who Are We

Advanced Combat Solutions was founded by Leroy Ball and Michael Ball, father and son. The company came into being in 2010 and is based in California.

Leroy Ball is a veteran of the United States Navy and was a naval aviator for six years. One of his first assignments was to the N.A.S. at Point Mugu Pacific Air Missile and Weapons Test Center. It was here that he served in the target drone division, its mission, to provide target drones and controller/chase planes from selected military storage facilities. His second duty station was at the N.A.S. Barbars Point, Hawaii and the N.A.S. Midway Island. During his time at these facilities he was assigned to AEW Baron PAC Airbourne Early Warning System, its mission, to provide Airbourne coverage from Hawaii to Midway to the Aleutian islands in Alaska. After his military service he worked for Flying Tigers where he flew cargo, troops and supplies for the distance early warning system. Leroy also flew as a contracted civilian pilot for the U.S. government Department of Defense.

His duties included flying sorties into Nakon Phanom, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos flying reconnaissance, providing electronic surveillance of troop movement. Before retiring from professional flying he worked as a flight instructor in Southern California training pilots in aerobatics, as well as training helicopter pilots. He currently focuses his energies on design and engineering of firearms technologies in continued support of military and law enforcement that depend on these tools in the line of duty.
