Transcend Tactical Introduces the Only Affordable Mobile Gas Deployment System

 

The Vantage robot’s proven lifesaving capabilities are increasingly incorporated into more SWAT units, protecting lives at an affordable price.

Kokomo, Ind. (April 2019)Transcend Tactical, a company focused on saving the lives of civilians and police officers during tactical situations, has launched a gas deployment system that can be added to their Vantage robot. It can now safely deploy two hot or cold gas grenades remotely and with mobility. Officers can now deploy hot gas deep within a structure, wherever and whenever desired. Another alternative to deadly force, a gas system can hinder an armed suspect. With officer-involved shootings receiving growing scrutiny and the promise of new state laws addressing these interactions, a mobile and remotely actuated gas deployment robot couldn’t have come sooner.

A SWAT captain from California said, “During certain tactical situations, I can roll the Vantage robot up to a subject and use the video and two-way audio to try to talk him into surrendering before deploying the gas. This removes the proximity stress and randomness of throwing a cartridge. It’s definitely a great alternative to employing deadly force.”

Transcend’s gas system has been tested by law enforcement and has been sold to multiple clients. A Commander from Colorado stated, “It is a major advantage to have a gas system option. We can get it into a house and position it how we want it and can even deploy flash bangs from it. There’s no need for an officer to go into a hostile situation with his gun drawn and risk shooting a suspect or being shot.”

Transcend Vantage Gas System, which has an encrypted digital signal, can currently deploy two Combined Tactical Systems hot or cold gas grenades individually with other options coming soon. It has a simple switch deployment and since it is mounted on the Vantage robot, it can easily climb stairs.

Transcend Tactical has developed its Vantage robot at a price point so that any agency can afford its life-saving capabilities. No dangerous tactical deployment should operate without it. For more information contact www.TranscendTactical.com.

Big Things Come in Small Packages; GPO Introduces Its 10×50 RangeGuide

 

RICHMOND, Va. (April 24, 2019) — German Precision Optics (GPO), USA is making its mark as it enters the laser rangefinding binocular category in a very small way, but its flagship rangefinding binocular’s features are sure to make it a huge hit. With a size and weight that rivals its competitors in the 42mm-binocular class, the new RangeGuide 10X50 binocular boasts exceptional edge-to-edge clarity as well as precise ranging on reflective targets out to nearly 1.75 miles. GPO will debut its diminutive RangeGuide at the 148th NRA Annual Meetings at the Indiana Convention Center NRA in Indianapolis on April 26 (GPO Booth #6867).

Standing just 6.3 inches tall, one might marvel that the GPO RangeGuide is just a compact 10X50 binocular. But it not only lives up to its 22.36 twilight factor; it actually can accurately range targets out to 3,062 yards with inclination/declination compensation, all while tipping the scales at a mere 35 ounces. The magnesium frame is to thank for much of the light weight, but the small footprint of the internal laser rangefinding engine is the RangeGuide’s biggest feature.

The compact RangeGuide features an eye-safe Class 1 laser for instant readings (0.25-second response time) with true-range angle technology that calculates the proper distance to the target after measuring the angle to the target. Scan mode provides three readings per second via its orange OLED display with nine adjustable brightness levels. The RangeGuide even measures ambient temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius to help with shot placement on long-range shots. The Class 1 laser will reliably range a tree at 1,093 yards and a deer out to 766 yards. Display provides both the line-of-sight distance as well as the user’s choice of adjusted distance, angle or temperature.

Coupled with the GPObright™ high-transmission lens coatings, the RangeGuide’s double-HD laminated 50mm objective lenses are exceptionally beneficial for transmitting light in the twilight hours. The lenses maximize the sharpness and the resolution of the optical image. The field of view is 330 feet at 1,000 yards, and eye relief is 17mm. The RangeGuide also features diopter focus adjustments on both left and right sides and utilizes GPO’s premium cut-brass-geared focus-wheel system for a very tight, consistent turning radius without any free-play.

The RangeGuide’s armor coating make it tough enough to use in any outdoor environment. If you need to see your game and know the distance in all hunting environments, the GPO RangeGuide 10×50 is your winning ticket.

“GPO has some incredible products,” said Mike Jensen, GPO, USA’s owner and CEO. “But I have to say, this one outdoes them all.”

These new RangeGuide binoculars will be shipping soon from Germany and will be available at GPO dealers nationwide or conveniently online at www.gpo-usa.com with a suggested retail price of $1,777.77.

Savage to Introduce More Than 12 New Guns at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – April 24, 2019 – Savage will announce more than a dozen new rifle configurations at the 2019 NRA Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26-28. These new firearms will be available at dealers this summer. Savage invites attendees to visit booth 4955 during the show to see these new products and more.

The introductions include several great caliber additions and model upgrades to Savage’s existing centerfire and rimfire product lines. In addition, the company is poised to release a full lineup of firearms in new Mossy Oak Overwatch, the official camouflage pattern of the NRA.

For starters, Savage has expanded its Apex Hunter XP and Engage Hunter XP package rifles series to include 450 Bushmaster. The Apex Hunter XP comes with a Vortex Crossfire II 3-9x40mm scope and a one-piece rail, while the Engage Hunter XP features a Bushnell Engage 3-9x40mm. Both scopes are mounted, bore-sighted and ready to shoot.

The new 110 Classic features a quality walnut stock with modern ergonomics similar to those of the new Model 110 design. The stock’s length-of-pull and comb height adjust in quarter-inch increments to allow peak comfort, consistency and precision for any shooter. The 110 Classic is available in eight popular chamberings.

Savage has also expanded the A17 line with a chambering for 17 Mach 2, another flat-shooting, high-velocity rimfire cartridge. Its unique delayed-blowback action provides safe, reliable operation with any 17 Mach 2 load.

The new A22 FV-SR semi- automatic 22 LR upgrades the original A22 platform with a button-rifled, medium-contour barrel and threaded muzzle. It features a gray synthetic stock, user-adjustable AccuTrigger and reliable straight blowback action. This rifle is complete with a matte black finish, a new feature for this product line.

Savage has expanded the AXIS II line to include a chambering for 300 Blackout, providing the ballistics that made the cartridge famous—now in a bolt-action platform built for hunters. Savage also expanded the 110 Tactical lineup to include left-hand models, a 6.5 PRC chambering, and other options.

Finally, Savage has partnered with Mossy Oak to create several firearms with new Overwatch camo. Models include A22 FV-SR semi-auto in 22 LR, B Series bolt action in 22 LR and 17 HMR, A17 semi-auto in 17 HMR, MSR 15 Recon 2.0 semi-auto in 5.56x45mm /223 Rem., MSR 10 Hunter semi-auto in 308 Win. and 6.5 Creedmoor, Model 110 Ridge Warrior bolt-action in 308 Win. and 6.5 Creedmoor, and AXIS II bolt-action in many caliber options.

Mossy Oak Overwatch utilizes cutting-edge design technology and features the NRA logo embedded within the pattern. Wearing it helps NRA members show their support and passion for the right to keep and bear arms, and the protection of America’s hunting, fishing and outdoors heritage.

These products and many more from Savage can be viewed at booth 4955 during the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits. Learn more about Savage at www.savagearms.com.

Steyr Arms THB Precision Rifle Now Available with Exclusive Manners Stock

 

 

BESSEMER, Ala. (April 23, 2019) — Steyr Arms USA has announced that it has partnered with Manners Composite Stocks (MCS) to create a new variant of THB (Tactical Heavy Barrel) rifle designed to meet the needs of law enforcement and precision rifle shooters. Steyr and Manners worked together to create a highly optioned composite tactical stock that is mated to the exceptionally accurate THB barreled action. The new Steyr THB Manners rifle will be publicly unveiled at the 148th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis on April 26 (Steyr Arms Booth #4423).

The Steyr THB Manners will be available in .308 Win. and 6.5 Creedmoor. The rifle is built on Steyr’s proven Safe Bolt System (SBS) bolt-action receiver with its 2+1 safety system. The SBS action is perfectly married to a heavy-profile, cold-hammer-forged barrel. In the .308 version, it will be available with either a 16-, 20- or 26-inch barrel, while the 6.5 Creedmoor barrel will be 26 inches in length. The muzzles of each barrel are threaded with a 5/8-24 RH thread pitch to accept muzzle brakes or suppressors, and a thread protector will be included. With it’s match-quality single-stage trigger system, the THB barreled-action is virtually identical to that of Steyr’s high-end, long-range tactical rifles.

A Steyr exclusive, the new Manners tactical stock for the THB is built around the CNC-machined aluminum MCS Mini Chassis System that is perfectly fitted to the SBS action for maximum repeatability. The chassis incorporates a trigger guard as well as the Maxwell that accepts standard Steyr four-round magazines or 10-round magazines with the optional Steyr adapter kit. The outer shell is constructed of 35-percent carbon fiber and 65-percent fiberglass, hand-laid in multiple layers with high-temperature epoxy resins and then heat cured in a vacuum for the ideal resin-to-fabric ratio.

The stock features an adjustable comb and a length of pull that can be easily adjusted by adding or removing spacers. The stock has two flush QD sling-swivel cups on the right side as well as a Picatinny rail on the bottom/front of the wide, flat foreend for attaching a bipod or tripod. The Steyr THB Manners comes with a standard camouflage finish that is molded into the field-grade gel coat; however, additional colors can be special ordered at no charge. Select camouflage patterns can be ordered for an additional cost.

The THB Manners rifle measures 47 inches overall, and it weighs 10.5 pounds, empty. The rifle has a 20 MOA Picatinny rail mounted on the receiver, and it comes standard with a round tactical bolt handle.

The rifle has a suggested retail price of $2,395, and as with all Steyr center-fire bolt-action rifles, the Steyr THB Manners is part of the Steyr Elite Experience that provides the purchaser an unconditional 1 MOA guarantee, a limited lifetime warranty and a free world-class training course at the Steyr Academy ($650 value). The Steyr-exclusive Manners stock is also available separately from Steyr Arms and will fit any standard-length SBS action.

Established in 1864, Steyr Arms is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious firearms manufacturers. Steyr’s comprehensive lines of premium hunting rifles and precision sporting and tactical firearms are technically mature, and their subtle elegance also communicates the harmony between appearance and substance. Steyr’s legendary SBS actions and cold-hammer-forged barrels are distinctive and unparalleled. Steyr Arms USA is the subsidiary headquarters of Steyr Arms in the U.S., and it is also the exclusive importer for Merkel firearms, JAGDHUND and X JAGD apparel.

Speer to Introduce Six New Items at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits

LEWISTON, Idaho – April 23, 2019 – Speer is shaking up the shooting industry with two high-performance products it’s introducing at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26-28, 2019. Attendees who stop by the Vista Outdoor booth no. 4955 will get a first look at new Impact component bullets for reloaders and Gold Dot G2 handgun ammunition, now released to the consumer market.

The Speer Impact bullet blends tough, molecularly bonded construction with a high ballistic coefficient. Its groundbreaking Slipstream polymer tip provides an aerodynamic meplat, and its hollow core initiates expansion at velocities 200 fps lower than comparable designs. The combination results in deep penetration at mid-range, as well as extreme accuracy and consistent low-velocity expansion at long distances. These new component bullets are sold in 50-count boxes and are available in 140-grain 6.5mm/264 cal. and both 172- and 190-grain 308 cal., with MSRPs from $25.95 to $26.95.

Previously only offered to law enforcement, Speer Gold Dot G2 offers the ultimate performance for self-defense thanks to an exclusive nose design. Instead of a large hollow-point cavity, Gold Dot G2 has a shallow dish filled with a high-performance elastomer. On impact, the material is forced into engineered internal fissures to start the expansion process. The result is extremely uniform expansion, better separation of the petals, and more consistent penetration across barrier types through full-size handguns. The loads are sold in 20-count boxes and available in 147-grain 9mm Luger, 180-grain 40 S&W and 230-grain 45 Auto +P, with MSRPs ranging from $28.95 to $32.95.

Attendees at the NRA Show will also be reminded that Speer customers can now buy a limited variety of ammunition and reloading components direct-to-consumer on the Speer website; www.speer-ammo.com.
This year, Speer is celebrating more than 75 years of business. The iconic manufacturer’s reputation for making the world’s finest component bullets and loaded cartridges goes all the way back to 1943. Speer is proud of its longstanding success and looks forward to a bright future ahead.

New products and much more from Speer can be viewed at booth 4955 during the NRA Show. For more information on Speer, go to www.speer-ammo.com.

Steinel Ammunition Co. Signs Laura Burgess Marketing (LBM) for Public Relations

Steinel Ammunition Co., makers of rare and large bore cartridges, partners with LBM to grow awareness of their competitively priced, hard to find precision loads within the shooting sports market.

Twinsburg, Ohio (April 2019) – Steinel Ammunition Co., manufacturers of American-made premium self-defense, hunting, and target ammunition, have signed industry public relations company, Laura Burgess Marketing, to help increase awareness of their unique ammunition offerings, all designed and produced for optimal results.

Steinel Ammunition’s “Dedicated to Every Round™” tag line is a company-wide philosophy and mission to fill their customers’ ammunition needs with products that provide consistent reliability, accuracy, and precision, no matter if using for target, competition, hunting or as a professional. Steinel Ammunition stands behind their products with a 100 Percent Satisfaction Guarantee policy.

Steinel Ammunition, known by discerning shooters for their 458 SOCOM 300 grain JHP load, has recently added more SOCOM loads, plus Steinel’s 458 SOCOM Guide Book, available for download on the same page. Steinel Ammunition carries a wide range of rifle ammo from .243 WSSM to .308 Win, 45/70 Government, and the 500 Auto Max 350 gr. JHP, designed specifically for Big Horn Armory’s AR 500 rifle. Steinel Ammunition also produces a line of vintage military ammunition for the Garand, Arisaka and Trapdoor Springfield rifles.

Steinel Ammunition offers both revolver and semi-auto handgun ammunition, from self-defense loads to handgun hunting rounds. Their Ultimate Deer Load, a 44 Magnum with a 225 grain Solid Copper Hollow Point, is made with premium components, including Starline brass, Hodgdon powder, and what is arguably the best bullet technology for handgun hunters: a Maker Bullet SCHP.  Field testing and ballistic gel testing confirm that this lead-free bullet provides optimal penetration AND expansion on deer-sized game.  The former shows that shoulders and ribs will not deter the bullet’s ability to reach the vitals and expand sufficiently, often with bullet diameters in excess of 1.1 inches.

New rounds are being researched and developed continuously, including the latest, an 8mm Nambu, which just tested flawlessly in a Type 94 pistol and will soon be available for purchase.

“Steinel Ammunition is a different kind of ammo company,” Andy Steinel, president of Steinel Ammunition Co., explained. “Because we don’t produce the everyday type of ammo you see stocked on the store shelves, we need someone within our industry that could reach the right people to help us increase customer awareness. What we offer is truly unique and we feel that LBM will be able to help us access those individuals that can propel us in the right direction.”

“I am very excited to represent Steinel Ammunition,” Laura Burgess, president of LBM, said. “The fact that Steinel Ammunition does not follow the crowd makes them unique. I look forward to the challenge of targeting some of these niche shooting enthusiast groups. I sense, once they know about Steinel Ammunition, they will be forever hooked!”

Meet the Reach at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, the Firearms Safe that Looks Like No Other!

 

Visit Vara Safety at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits

Booth 1506

Vara Safety set to introduce Second Amendment advocates to the only firearms safe that addresses both safety and accessibility.

Latham, N.Y. (April 2019)Vara Safety will be bringing their innovative biometric firearms safe direct to their customers at the 148th Annual NRA Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26-28, 2019. Vara Safety will be displaying Reach at booth 1506 in the Indiana Convention Center.

Reach is the first firearms safe that addresses two of the most important concerns for home protection: safety and accessibility. While keeping firearms and ammunition under lock and key is the norm for most firearms owners, the question of how to have instant accessibility to a firearm when a situation occurs that threatens the lives and property of the home (and business) owner had gone unanswered. At the same time, there is the concern that curious children, teenagers, or other unauthorized individuals could have access to a loaded firearm with potentially fatal repercussions. Reach is the culmination of years of end-user and technology research and testing.

Vara Safety, the company behind Reach, is set to start shipping in early summer of 2019 and has just completed a survey, growing the initial firearm model inserts from four (GLOCK®, Smith & Wesson® M&P Shield®, Springfield Armory® XD-S Mod.2®and 1911 models) to more.

Timmy Oh, founder of Vara Safety and lead designer behind Reach, actively participates in customer conversations on social media, through the website and from Demo Days. “From day one, I knew that it was important to keep the customer in the forefront and we adapt to our market needs based upon that feedback. Besides asking what our public wants in handgun model inserts, we also wanted to know where they would like to access their Reach. From this conversation, we are now developing a platform for vehicles. At Vara Safety, we take our customers seriously and look forward to having plenty of feedback at the biggest consumer firearms show in the country, the annual NRA show.”

Get the background story at Making firearm safety beautiful.

About Vara Safety:

Incorporated in August 2017 and located in upper New York State, Vara Safety is a company dedicated to bringing the latest biometric technology to firearms safety. The first product is Reach, a patented biometric handgun safe that allows the user to simultaneously unlock the firearm using a fingerprint reader while drawing the handgun in ready and safe position, will be available to consumers in the summer of 2019. www.varasafety.com

“A new shooting season, and more of the same consistent, reliable, and undeniable performance from my equipment. Over 800 rounds of both standard ‘gamer’ loads and high performance, +P++ loads with Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 cases in two different firearms over the weekend with zero failures of any kind. Even the chronograph shows the consistency with an extreme spread of 10 FPS. Can’t say enough about being able to count on your gear when it matters,” commented Vlieger.

Vlieger has fired over 55,000 rounds of ammunition with Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3cases since becoming sponsored in 2017 and plans to continue using it.

Vlieger can be seen competing next at the 2019 Magnus Cup USPSA Level 3, to be held at the Southern Utah Practical Shooters in St. George, Utah, April 26 – 28, 2019.

NAS3 9mm cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms.

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – April 22, 2019 – Savage is excited to announce a lineup of new firearms in NRA’s Mossy Oak Overwatch camouflage at the 2019 NRA Meetings & Exhibits Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26-28, 2019. Attendees are invited to visit the Vista Outdoor booth 4955 during the show to see and learn more about these new firearms, which will be available at dealers this summer. Mossy Oak will also be giving away nine Savage AXIS II Overwatch rifles at its booth, 4404, during the three-day show.

Mossy Oak recently became the National Rifle Association’s Official Camouflage Partner. As a result, Mossy Oak developed an all-new pattern exclusive to the NRA: Overwatch. The unique pattern utilizes cutting-edge design technology and features the NRA logo embedded within the pattern. Wearing it helps NRA members show their support and passion for their American right to keep and bear arms, and the protection of America’s hunting, fishing and outdoors heritage.

Savage then partnered with Mossy Oak to create several firearms with the pattern. Overwatch firearm models include A22 FV-SR semi-auto in 22 LR, B Series bolt action in 22 LR and 17 HMR, A17 semi-auto in 17 HMR, MSR 15 Recon 2.0 semi-auto in 5.56x45mm/223 Rem., MSR 10 Hunter semi-auto in .308 Win. and 6.5 Creedmoor, Model 110 Ridge Warrior bolt-action in 308 Win. and 6.5 Creedmoor, and AXIS II bolt-action in many caliber options.

Savage Arms and Mossy Oak are teaming up to give away nine AXIS II Overwatch rifles during the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits. To enter, event attendees must visit the Mossy Oak booth, where instructions will be provided to enter. Three rifles will be given away per day. Entries must be submitted on-site, but contestants do not have to be present to win. Limit of one entry per person.

New Overwatch firearms and much more from Savage can be viewed at the Vista Outdoor booth during the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits. To learn more about Savage, visit www.savagearms.com.

Burris New RT-8 Scope to be Unveiled at the annual NRA show

Springtime at Burris

We’ve got a brand new tactical scope to tell you about, plus there’s info on the Burris Speedbead for those of you into shotguns and turkey hunting.
We’ve got a special deal on our custom knobs, another special deal on items in the Burris store, and a contest where one of you will win a Speedbead Shotgun sight. So read on!  And as always, thank you for supporting Burris.

See You at the NRA Annual Meeting

We’re in Indianapolis for the annual NRA show. It’s April 25th through 28th.
Burris is in booth #6855. Stop by and talk to us about our latest scopes and sights, or some of our all-time favorites. We’ll have the XTR III, our upcoming new tactical scope, the Oracle bowsight, and everything else from Droptines to Veracity scopes.
These events are easily the best opportunity to see the entire Burris line, and to compare it with the competition!

NEW PRODUCT

RT-8 Scope

Brand new – being unveiled at NRA Show

Two years ago the RT-6 1-6x scope hit the Burris catalog. And it has been a huge success, bringing short-to-medium range extreme accuracy to tactical shooters who are bit more price-conscious.
This year we’re adding to the RT lineup with the 1-8x RT-8.
True 1x magnification at the lower end means extremely fast shooting with both eyes open. Full 8 times magnification means this scope is good for some serious distances. Features like a built-in adjustable throw lever are designed to make it very quick.  1-8 scopes are seeing double duty — they may have been  designed for tactical competitions, but they are hugely popularity with hunters.
We’ll have details and specifications on BurrisOptics.com after the launch at NRA show.

German Precision Optics Partners with Lungile Safaris

 

 

RICHMOND, Va. (April 22, 2019) — German Precision Optics (GPO), USA announced today a strategic partnership with Lungile Safaris that is revolutionary in the hunting industry. The two companies have joined forces to bring together award-winning optics with world-class South African hunting for GPO customers at an exceptionally discounted price. With the purchase of select GPO product packages in select markets, customers will have an opportunity to redeem discount vouchers for savings on hunting adventures with Lungile Safaris.

One example of the offerings is a special seven-day Plains Game Adventure package that has been put together specifically for the GPO promotion. It starts at $3,499 before any discounts (see below) are applied. This price is for two people at one of Lungile Safaris’ four premier lodges and includes the harvesting of one blue wildebeest or one black wildebeest, one blesbok and one springbok. These animals can be shared if desired and additional animals can be added for additional fees. The price also includes all food, a private room with a private bathroom, a dedicated professional hunter, non-alcoholic drinks, field preparation of trophies and delivery of trophies to a local taxidermist or shipping agent.

To participate in this Hunt Africa promotional program from GPO and Lungile Safaris, one merely needs to take advantage of one of the three promotional offers:

· $750 Safari Discount—Purchase 1 PASSION 3X or 1 PASSION 4X riflescope and 1 PASSION ED binocular (Promotional hunt cost $2,749.99)

· $1,000 Safari Discount—Purchase 1 PASSION 3X or PASSION 4X riflescope and 1 PASSION HD binocular (Promotional hunt cost $2,499.99)

· $1,500 Safari Discount—Purchase 1 PASSION 6X or 8X or 1 GPOTAC riflescope and 1 PASSION HD binocular (Promotional hunt cost $1,999.99)

The above discounts are examples based on applying the available discount vouchers to the Adventure Plains Game package.  However, these vouchers can be used on any hunt purchased and booked with Lungile Safaris.  Once the purchase is made, simply take a digital image of the sales receipt(s) that show the purchase(s) of the qualifying GPO products. Email the photo, your full name, address and phone number to promotions@gpo-usa.com. Upon validation of the receipt(s), GPO USA will email you a PDF of the appropriate safari discount voucher to print and use when booking the hunt with Lungile Safaris. This process eliminates the need for paperwork, the use of postal mail and long wait times. Snap a picture, e-mail the image and information, and you are on your way to great savings on great hunts.

“Since GPO was launched less than three years ago, we have been doing things differently,” said Mike Jensen, GPO, USA president and CEO. “This partnership promotion is just another example our out-of-the-box thinking and our company’s continued commitment to our customers.”

“Hunting Africa is a dream for so many people,” Jensen said “At GPO, we want to help make those dreams come true. And with the use of the GPO optics, it is certain to be an incredibly memorable experience.”

JC1

We are pleased to introduce a special, limited edition 1911 from Ed Brown Products, Inc. in memory of the late Colonel Jeff Cooper. This commemorative 1911 is officially endorsed by the family of Jeff Cooper, and was designed in collaboration with them to render, as authentically as possible, what Jeff Cooper himself desired in a 1911. The final design was based on input from our builders, the Coopers, and many of Jeff’s closest friends and fans. The goal was to create a 1911 for combat shooting and personal defense that he would have been proud to carry.

COAST TX14R Rechargeable Handheld

20190416_102229

A long time ago, I developed a dislike for using “feature rich” accolades because quite frankly many of the features captured in that hackneyed expression have zero utility, but there are exceptions and COAST’s TX14R is one of those.

I explain why in my review…

BROWNELL NEW PRODUCTS

 

This week Paul Levy, chief of the Brownells product acquisition team, shows us the long and the short of hot new firearm releases. The KC9 from Ed Brown is a super slim, compact 1911 chambered in 9mm Luger (9x19mm) that’s all about daily carry. All-stainless steel, G10 grips, distinctive Snakeskin checkering on the mainspring housing and front-strap, external extractor for added reliability, bushing-free bull barrel, and a Trijicon HD fiber optic / Tritium front sight. Of course, the KC9 also has a sweet Ed Brown trigger and the shop’s legendary workmanship. On the other end of the size scale, Paul has the SRM Arms M1216 shotgun. The name says it all: a 12 gauge with 16 shots in a rotary magazine up front that also serves as the forearm. With acres of Picatinny rails for mounting ANY and ALL accessories you need, the M1216 embodies the word “intimating”!

New Modular Rifle Chassis from Choate Machine and Tool

 

See Us At The NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits!
Booth 4963

Choate Machine and Tool Introduces the Choate Modular Stock, a Modular Chassis System For Remington Pattern Bolt Action Rifles

Bald Knob, AR – Choate Machine and Tool, a market leading designer, manufacturer and OEM supplier of rifle stocks, shotgun magazine extensions and firearms accessories, has introduced The Choate Modular Stock (C. Mod) chassis system. This is a true modular rifle stock, allowing the user to change the forend or butt stock without removing the rifle action from the main chassis section. This modularity provides the ultimate in adaptability and versatility while not disturbing the critical action-to-stock fit so reconfirming zero is unnecessary after configuring the system as needed.

The heart of the C. Mod rifle stock system is the precision CNC machined chassis. Made from a solid block of aluminum, the chassis rigidly holds the action while the desired butt stock and forend can be changed as needed. The chassis uses the time-tested AR style magazine release. This eliminates accidentally dropping the magazine by hitting a release lever located in front of the trigger guard. The C Mod. magazine will accept cartridges up to 2.860 inches in length such as the 308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor and 260 Remington, as well as other popular cartridges like 6mm Remington, 257 Roberts and 7X57 Mauser. Each C. Mod chassis comes with two magazines and the required action screws.

The ultimate in versatility is provided by the C. Mod Stock system of optional forends and butt stocks. Forends include a target/varmint style forend with a wide, flat bottom and a sniper/tactical style forend that is shorter and slightly tapered toward the muzzle end. Both come with a T-rail and bipod adapter. Butt stocks included two conventional types including a basic tactical style, a fully customizable target/tactical style with adjustable check piece and length-of-pull. Choate also offers two very specialized butt stocks for the C. Mod Rifle Stock including a telescoping AR style butt stock (compatible with any AR butt stock) and a pistol grip folding stock for the ultimate in portability. All butt stocks and forends come with the required hardware for rock solid installation.

 

 

The new Choate Modular stock is available for the Remington 700 short action and Remington Model 7. MSRP is $710 and includes the CNC machined chassis anodized matted black, the tactical forend and the tactical butt stock both also in matte black and two magazines.
