SIG SAUER Presents “WILDCraft South Africa” Video Series Now Streaming on Amazon Prime Video

 

NEWINGTON, N.H., (December 12, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to present the WILDCraft Video Series featuring the SIG SAUER Electro-Optic Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) Rangefinder and Riflescope system, OSCAR8 Riflescope, and SIG SAUER Elite Copper Hunting Ammunition.  Season One of the WILDCraft series is now streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

WILDCraft is a four-part video series, hosted by Richard Mann, chronicling the journey of a group of gun writers and editors on a hunt led by professional hunter Geoffrey Wayland through the Fort Richmond Safaris in the mountains of South Africa’s Northern Cape. 

Throughout the WILDCraft series hunters train, and utilize, the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics BDX System which combines traditional hunting equipment with technology. BDX is a fully integrated rangefinder and riflescope system that utilizes Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Bluetooth™. The free SIG BDX app for Android and iOS systems allows for ballistic profiles to be established, and then communicated via Bluetooth™ to any SIG SAUER KILO BDX rangefinder. When targets are ranged, the ballistics are combined with distance to target, slope, temperature, and pressure to precisely calculate the shooting solution. This solution is displayed in the rangefinder and is also shared instantly with any SIERRA3BDX riflescope, instantly illuminating the exact holdover dot on the reticle in the riflescope. BDX™ is simple, fast, and intuitive – just connect the dot.

The SIG SAUER Electro-Optics OSCAR8 HDX Variable Power Spotting Scope aids the WILDCraft hunters to track their game in the Safari.  With more power, magnification, and the latest advancements in technology the OSCAR8 spotting scope s a premium, angled eyepiece 27–55x80mm spotting scope, featuring the industry-innovating SIG SAUER HDX optical design, and built specifically for hunters and shooters that demand the best in all-weather performance and durability in the field.

For ammunition the WILDCraft hunters utilize the SIG SAUER Elite Copper Hunting Ammunition 300 Win Mag (165gr.), 308 Win (150gr.), and 6.5 Creedmoor (120gr.) that features premium-quality powders and primers for minimum velocity variation and yields a 1.8x diameter expansion.  The ammunition is perfected for easy rifle feeding, with optimized nose geometry, and premium nickel-plated shell casings that deliver consistently reliable accuracy for taking down game.

The SIG SAUER products used by the WILDCraft hunters including the SIG SAUER BDX System, OSCAR8 Spotting Scope, and all calibers of the SIG SAUER Elite Copper Hunting Ammunition can be purchased online at sigsauer.com/store or retailers everywhere.

NEW PRODUCTS FROM BROWNELLS

A clean shaven Paul Levy kicks off this week’s new product highlights with something that’ll make handgun connoisseurs salivate: the revived SIG Sauer P210. The original P210 was a classic, both as a won’t-let-you-down duty pistol and a target gun, and the new edition replicates its fit, finish, and solid, “all of a piece” feel. And that light, crisp, single-stage, single action trigger! There are some updates: 3-dot sights, satin Nitride finish, American-style mag release, but the grips are still wood. Available in Standard and Target models, the new SIG P210 is everything a great pistol ought to be.

Next, Paul offers us a piece of the action – Bergara barreled actions, in several chamberings, that is. These precisely fitted bolt actions are compatible with Remington 700 parts, components, stocks, and chassis, so your customizing options are pretty much unlimited.

Last, a CMMG Banshee AR-15 pistol chambered in FN 5.7×28 that uses FN Five-seveN pistol magazines (other chamberings available). With a bunch of sweet features, including an SB Tactical stabilizing Brace, this NOT just another AR-15 pistol!

About Big Horn Armory:

Big Horn Armory was founded in 2008 with the expressed intention of designing a Browning-type lever-action gun chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. The Big Horn Armory Model 89, made in America, closely follows the work of John Browning with refinements courtesy of modern metallurgy and machining capabilities. The first rifles began shipping in September of 2012 and since then, BHA has added to their big bore lineup with a Model 90 Carbine in 460 S&W, the Model 90A in 454 Casull, the Model 90B in .45 Colt, the Model 89A in 500 Linebaugh and the Model 89B in .475 Linebaugh. In 2017, Big Horn Armory took a departure from its lever-action series and developed the AR500 Auto Max, the most powerful short-range, semi-auto based on an AR .308 platform.

Twelve Days Until Christmas and 326 Days to 2020 Elections

Image result for 2020 elections gif funny

Hope you’ve all had a terrific week and that the Spirit of the Season is filling you hearts. It’s been one hell of a year and it’ll be nice to get all of this political strife behinds us. It’s Friday and time for a brief shoot the shit because I have all kinds of crap that I need to get done.

A shoot the shit is a social interaction during which participants are free to discuss anything that comes to mind, no one is required to know anything about the subject being discussed, any unsupported comments can be made, participants are free to use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject at anytime. The alternative to regular shoot the shits is therapy, where you’ll have to pay $150+ an hour to a jackass who studied psychology so they could understand themselves.

If you’ve been watching the Impeachment Hearings you’ve undoubtedly found yourself disgusted regardless of Party affiliation. Never in a million years could I have ever imagined that this sort of thing could happen. The Democrat Congress has actually drafted Articles of Impeachment with no corroborating evidence. It’s amazing, and an embarrassment. Even worse, we have Democrat members of Congress suggesting that you can just keep impeaching a sitting President. Unbelievable!

If you think this is bad, wait until campaigns kick in. The shtick below is what you’ll likely be hearing from the Democrat candidates.

Please have a great weekend and don’t let this crap get to you, but do get to the polls and vote. Do, schedule your own shoot the shit because it’s a great way to spend quality time with your buds and family

Precision Rifle Components Names MasterPiece Arms (MPA) as Most Popular Chassis in “What the Joes Use” Survey

The totals were pulled from 626 registered shooters that participated in Wisconsin Precision Rifle Steel Challenge (WPRSC) events during the 2019 match season. MPA barrels were also named the seventh most popular rifle barrels used among local PRS competitors.

Top stock and chassis manufacturers used in 2019 WPRSC matches. Graphs courtesy of the Precision Rifle Components.

Comer, Ga. (December 2019)MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, was recently surveyed to be the most popular chassis/stock system in the Wisconsin PRS market, as compiled in Precision Rifle Component’s “What the Joes Use: Top Stocks and Chassis Used by Local PRS Competitors in 2019.” The MPA chassis is used by approximately 21 percent of the WPRSC competitors. MPA barrels were also surveyed to be the seventh most popular rifle barrel used by Wisconsin PRS competitors.

“Whether it’s a Pro or a Joe who uses our products, we want every single person that chooses to use our chassis systems in competition to receive the same accuracy, power, and reliability that our chassis can provide. We love hearing from competitors across the nation and learning more about what they trust during competition. We are honored to have been named the most popular chassis used by the WPRSC competitors,” commented Phil Cashin, MPA President.

The MPA BA Competition Chassis is the competition version of MPA’s highly successful MPA BA Chassis System. It has been named the number one chassis in the PRS every year since 2016. It is designed to give shooters a competitive advantage when shooting in long-range tactical rifle competitions, such as the PRS. In addition to the standard chassis features, it has been enhanced with the Spigot Mount V4 Design that attaches to the front of the forend to give the shooter additional space to mount their bipod and the Ultra Bag Rider attachment for better rear bag recoil management. MSRP ranges from $999 – $1,150.

MPA purchased Spencer Rifle Barrels in June of 2013, which allows for the in-house capability required to produce world-class rifle barrels. In addition to the equipment needed to produce the barrels, Clay Spencer’s methods and practices are followed to the letter at MPA. Spencer’s methods were developed over 30 plus years of painstaking effort with the goal of producing the best barrels possible, delivering long life and extreme accuracy. No short cuts are ever taken. The process is slow, exacting and very specific with impressive results. Spencer Rifle Barrels have set over 43 world records and won 75 plus major matches and National Championships. These MPA barrels can be purchased finished and installed on MPA rifles or acquired separately as a contoured barrel blank.

Precision Rifle Components and Wisconsin Precision Rifle Steel Challenge (WPRSC)partnered to share usage data, pulled from 626 registered shooters that participated in WPRSC events during the 2019 match season. The goal of the “What the Joes Use” survey was to focus on what the average local PRS competitor uses. More information on how the data was compiled can be found in the “What the Joes Use: What Equipment are Local PRS Competitors Using in 2019?” article.

NSSF Welcomes Massachusetts AG’s ‘Enforcement Notice’ Clarification

 

NSSF The Firearms Industry Trade Association

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry trade association, accepts Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s agreement to clarify the Enforcement Notice that included “’Copies’ or ‘Duplicates’ of the Enumerated Weapons.” The Attorney General’s agreement to clarify this notice effectively ends the legal challenge by NSSF, Pullman Arms of Worcester, Mass., along with three other Massachusetts firearms retailers.

“We are pleased this matter has come to a successful resolution,” said Lawrence G. Keane, Senior Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs and General Counsel for NSSF. “We sought clarification to the Enforcement Notice to allow firearms retailers to know exactly what the law stated and ensure they were operating within the confines of that law. For two and a half years, these business owners were left in the dark and today, they finally have the clear answers they sought.”

In 2016 Attorney General Healey charged that firearms retailers were violating the intent of a state law against so-called “assault weapons” by making small tweaks to certain firearms and issued the Enforcement Notice. The Notice warned retailers those so-called “copies” or “duplicates” of the firearms specifically listed in the state law were illegal for sale.

NSSF and the stores had to file the case to challenge the Notice because it was too vague to apply. The complaint identified the difficulties in applying the Notice to listed firearms after the Attorney General’s office ignored multiple requests to clarify the Notice as to those firearms. The Office did not take steps to clarify the notice for two and a half years, and only recently notified the Plaintiffs that the listed firearms are not illegal “assault weapons.” The Office agreed to amend the Notice after NSSF prevailed against multiple motions designed to dismiss or stall the case. Because the Notice has been clarified, the goals for the case have been achieved, and there is nothing else to fight about in this action.

 

About NSSF

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of thousands of manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers nationwide.

The QuickTuk Cloud For The Popular SIG-Sauer P938 From Galco

Introducing The QuickTuk Cloud For The Popular SIG-Sauer P938

 

Galco is excited to introduce the QuickTuk Cloud™ inside the waistband holster for the very popular SIG-Sauer® P938! An ideal combination of comfort, convenience, security and efficiency, the QuickTuk Cloud is a great addition to the toolbox of any defense-minded gun carrier.

Comfort is, of course, critical when carrying a handgun for defense. A holster that’s uncomfortable will just mean the handgun is left at home when it’s needed most. To maximize wearer comfort, the QuickTuk Cloud uses an innovative backing plate composed of a ballistic nylon front over a closed cell foam body. Lined with Galco’s Comfort Cloth™, the plate provides padding and moisture wicking, making it comfortable to wear for extended hours every single day.

Convenient concealment is also important, so we’ve made the QuickTuk Cloud easy to put on and take off, while still staying secure inside your pants during concealed carry. We use our patent-pending, tuckable polymer UniClip™ for stability and easy on-off capability. The clip can be moved up or down in the corresponding holes in the backing plate, enabling you to set the carry height to suit your own unique preferences.

Finally, efficiency is key. Time is usually in short supply in a defensive situation, so you need to be able to get the handgun into action quickly. The QuickTuk Cloud’s rigid, open-top Kydex® holster pocket facilitates a full firing grip for a fast draw and easy return to holster, while still firmly retaining the handgun when it’s not needed.

When you need an IWB holster that perfectly combines comfort, concealability, convenience, security and defensive efficiency, look to the QuickTuk Cloud. It’s available in black at the very affordable retail price of $55.

Galco International, LTD is the designer and manufacturer of the Galco holster brand, the premier American-made line of superb-quality holsters, belts and accessories. Encompassing law enforcement, military, defensive and sporting use, the Galco brand utilizes leather, nylon, injection-molded plastic and Kydex® to meet the demands of today’s consumers. The award-winning Matrix™ line of holsters and accessories, women’s holster handbags, tactical slings and hunting accessories round out the line. All Galco products are proudly made in the USA since 1969.

Lauren Boebert Announces Run For Congress

 

Lauren Boebert for Congress

Lauren Boebert for Congress

Rifle, Colorado – -(AmmoLand.com)- Lauren Boebert, a conservative Republican, successful small business owner, mother of four boys, and Second Amendment advocate, announced the launch of her campaign to represent the citizens of Colorado’s Third Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.

 

“There is a battle for the heart and soul of our country that I intend on helping win,” said Lauren Boebert. “I’m running for Congress to stand up for our conservative values, address our representatives’ failed promises, and put far-left Democrats back in their place.”

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Squad and the rest of these left-wing lunatics are taking a wrecking ball to our country while our current representative stays utterly silent,” Lauren said.

“Hard-working, patriotic Americans like you and me don’t want the Green New Deal and socialized medicine. Every time AOC and the rest of the Squad pipes up with another crazy idea I will remind them that our belief in God, Country and Family are what built the United States of America into the greatest nation the world has ever known.”

Lauren earned national notoriety in September when she attended a rally held by then-presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke and told him, “Hell no, you won’t take our guns.”

 

Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario endorsed Lauren Boebert’s campaign, saying “Lauren Boebert is a true patriot who always stands on the right side of freedom. She is exactly who I want representing us in Congress.”

Lauren started, owns and operates Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, is active in her church, and has spent time counseling at-risk women at the local jail, encouraging them to become self-sufficient and productive members of society who do not depend on government assistance.

She is an avid supporter of President Trump and his policies to Make America Great Again.

Lauren’s husband, Jayson, has worked his entire adult life in oil and gas fields, primarily in Western Colorado. They are the proud parents of four boys.

GLOCK Debuts a New Caliber Pistol; GLOCK 44 Chambered in .22 LR

 

SMYRNA, Ga. – Dec 10, 2019 GLOCK, Inc., a global leader in firearms manufacturing and innovation, invites you to start the .22 Long Rifle (LR) caliber journey with the introduction of the new GLOCK 44.

The company debuted its first-ever .22 LR caliber pistol at a live product launch that included select media partners and distributors on site while GLOCK fans and brand loyalists tuned in to be a part of the experience from around the globe.

Since inception, GLOCK has been synonymous with reliability, accuracy and durability. GLOCK does not compromise when it comes to quality and reliability in a firearm. Now you can get the same trusted reliability and durability in a .22 LR caliber pistol.  The GLOCK 44 has a unique hybrid steel-polymer slide and mirrors the iconic GLOCK 19 frame size for optimal performance for new shooters, sport shooters, and everyone in between. “The way the G44 mirrors the iconic G19 is great and all levels of shooters will benefit from owning and practicing with the G44,” said Retired Marine Gunner Christian Wade.  “I subjected the G44 to a variety of adverse conditions and it holds its own with every other GLOCK ever produced.”

Wade was one of two partners selected by GLOCK to rigorously test the GLOCK 44 in a variety of climates and adverse conditions. With over 30 years in the Marine Corps and as a firearms expert, Wade understands the importance of functionality and ease of use is realized in the GLOCK platform and carried on to the GLOCK 44.

GLOCK has taken everything that is fun and functional about a .22 LR caliber pistol and enhanced it to improve your experience with optimal performance. “While many .22 LR firearms exhibit tendencies to function differently with particular ammunition types, the G44 pistol functioned to near perfection,” said Bryan Peterson, Manager of Product Concept Development at Federal Ammunition.

Peterson was also a partner included in early testing and extended his expertise of ammunition through testing the G44 with thousands of rounds and a large variety of ammunition.

The G44 features many of the latest enhancements seen in the 5th Generation of GLOCK pistols such as the ambidextrous slide stop lever and reversible magazine catch, the GLOCK Marksman barrel (GMB) for increased accuracy and performance, adjustable back straps, and adjustable rear sights.  The G44 also features a ghost hole loaded chamber indicator and comes standard with two 10-round load assist magazines.

Atos and RAFAEL win the German Army’s “Glass Battlefield” study tender

Atos GmbH, as prime, has teamed up with RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems and various partners, to demonstrate use of UAS in conjunction with combat vehicles, to achieve a real-time, three-dimensional, dynamic situation picture for mobile operations

Tel Aviv, December 9, 2019 – Atos GmbH, a global leader in digital transformation has been selected to act as prime contractor by the German Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Use of the Federal Armed Forces (BAAINBw), for “Creation of a glass battlefield to support dynamic operations (ErzUntGlas)” study.

Atos has joined forces with RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., developer and manufacturer  leading edge defense solutions,to demonstrate use of UAS in conjunction with combat vehicles, to achieve a real-time, three-dimensional, dynamic situation picture for mobile operations.

For mobile battlefield reconnaissance, the German armed forces need many unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that can span a “Glass Battlefield”. A C4I command and communication network consisting of civilian and military components will be used. The study entails an annual demonstration experiment starting in 2019 and until 2023, which would then be followed by a project planning up to 2025.

As prime contractor that submitted the winning proposal, Atos will provide Project Lead and Integration, and RAFAEL will provide FIRE WEAVER (advanced 3D many-to-many sensor-to-shooter system) and BNET (patented broadband IP spectrum-sensing SDR system for both air and land platforms).

BNET is a Spectrum-Aware SDR – utilizing the spectral arena of the battlefield to the fullest in a cognitive way, using Multi-frequency Channel Reception (MCR), which enables it to receive and analyze information from numerous frequency channels, simultaneously, using a single RF head.

Mr. Yoav Wermuth, VP and head of RAFAEL’s C3I directorate: “Today’s battlefields are undergoing far-reaching changes that affect the operational needs of land, air and naval forces, with newly emerging real-time applications, such as sensor-to-effector cycle closure systems. Rising up to meet these challenges, and basing itself on decades of experience in the development of C4I solutions, RAFAEL has developed the BNET Family enhanced with a Patented technology, and the Fire Weaver for high-precision, three-dimensional, GPS-independent common visual language system. Assimilation of these systems into the Bundeswehr will lead to a number of significant changes: It will provide a common visual language between different types of units not only from the Bundeswehr, but also from allied forces, which share the same threats and missions, connecting multiple sensors and shooters on one single “flat” network.

For more information about BNET please see: https://www.rafael.co.il/worlds/land/tactical-communications/

For more information about FIRE WEAVER please see:  https://www.rafael.co.il/worlds/land/multi-service-network-centric-warfare/

Five more reasons to get the X10 for Christmas

The Mantis X10 is selling like gangbusters, which is good because a lot of real gangbusters are using the X10 to be the best at what they do.  If you need some more reasons for your “spouse” to buy this for your “surprise” Christmas present, here they are:


1. Five-phase holster draw analysis
Huh?  Since the stone age, men of all genders have been assessing their holster draw with a buzzy box that tells them when to start and when they shot.  After modern language was invented, they called it a shot timer, and it gave them a single number with three significant figures.  Their first response was “ooh,” and the buzzy box became the second most important god, just behind the coke bottle that fell from the sky.
Fast forward a few thousand years.  The Mantis X10 evolved from some big bangy sludge, and with it’s 9 different eyes could see things humans couldn’t even dream of.  A few nerdy engineers captured the X10 beast, programmed it with artificial intelligence, made it speak Bluetooth and made an app be the translator of this newfound information.  And when they put it on the back of the holster draw, we started to see five phases.  Wait, what?  I thought it was just a single, fluid stroke?  Not so fast, Tonto. 
Only the Mantis X10 can show you detailed analysis on the five phases so you’re primed to optimize and transform your draw into something actually useful.


It’s amazing and powerful – but only if you use it.
Need more reasons?  We’ll bullet these last ones quickly since we just made you read through the longest email we’ve ever sent.

2) Trade-In Program.  Yes, we are still offering the
most generous trade-in program in the world (if you already own a MantisX).  It’s the best way to get the best tech there is.
3) Rapid Fire analysis. Going live in the app in two weeks.
4) Shooting on the Move analysis.  Going live in the app in two weeks.
5) Shotgun app – live now.  Archery app – live in January.  Both work with the X10Multi-target analysis is grooving right along, along with a lot of other features that are under wraps. 
6) The X10 was named the 2019 Accessory of the Year by NASGW-POMA.  We’re humbled and energized for more.
So, yeah, we recommend the X10 be on your “must have” list for the holidays. 
Get it now.
Maybe if we slowed down the engineering we’d have time to send out more emails or count properly.  Nah, we’re having too much fun.  Stay tuned to hear more about what else is cooking!
Learn more about all the new models here.

Merry Christmas!
Love,

“If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.”

I hope you’ve all had an outstanding Thanksgiving Holiday. It’s time to get that shopping done unless you are a last minute shopper, and in that case you deserve to be pissed over a parking space.

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve had a shoot the shit and I apologize for that, but in all honesty it’s been tough finding suitable topics and I refuse to wallow in the incessant impeachment crap. I’ll let the Democrats do that. The entire process is nothing more than theater in the hope they can convince voters that the President has committed impeachable offenses. What voters are seeing is the political aristocracy lashing out at a duly elected President.

My question, and the one I encourage you to ask your Congressman or Congresswoman, is what supporting evidence do they have to prove the outlandish allegations of bribery, quid pro quo, treason, etc. None of the witnesses subpoenaed by Congress have first hand knowledge of the President’s conversation with Volodymyr Zelensky the Ukrainian President. Their testimony conveys presumption, hearsay, second and third hand accounts. What was also clear, is that most of these witnesses disagreed with the President’s approach to foreign policy. Unbelievable!

Image result for laughter gif

I’m also amused by Congressional Democrats posing as guardians of the Constitution and protectors of the Country, and it’s for that love that they have no choice but to impeach the President. You must be kidding! This is nothing more than a vulgar attempt at overthrowing a President to advance their own avarice for power. SNL will be producing comedy skits from this for years to come!

Speaking of comedy, how many of you are familiar with Jackie Mason? Jackie is on the list of top 100 best comics. His routines will have you rolling around on the floor. I present some of his work below – Jackie Mason The World According to Me (1988)

We’re living at a time when a political party is attempting to overthrow a U.S. President, veteran suicides are increasing, Parisians are rioting, Iraqis are dying in the streets, Iranians are dying in the streets and Hong Kong is in turmoil, so we need a little laughter right about now and if Jackie doesn’t get you going you need to be hospitalized.

Have a great weekend, and for God’s sake schedule your own shoot the shit. Remember that a shoot the shit is a social interaction during which participants don’t need to know anything about the subject being discussed, they are free to make any comment without support, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject. Try it, you’ll like it.

Heckler & Koch: The New SP5

Columbus, Georgia — Heckler & Koch is proud to announce the US availability of the HK SP5, the only authentic sporting version of the legendary MP5 submachine gun available.

The SP5 was developed by HK as a semiautomatic, civilian sporting pistol that matches the look and feel of the legendary MP5 submachine gun.

“Our whole team is very proud and very excited to finally bring the SP5 to the US,” HK-USA COO/CSO Mike Holley said. “The MP5 isn’t just a customer favorite, it’s an HK employee favorite too. So, we are just thrilled to roll out the most authentic semiautomatic-only version of it we’ve seen in the US.”

Designed and manufactured to meet the definition of a civilian pistol, the SP5 is loaded with authentic features, like a Navy barrel with threaded tri-lug adaptor, paddle magazine release, fluted chamber and chrome-lined bore.

The backbone of the SP5 is the roller-delayed blowback operating system, which is legendary for its accuracy, reliability, and smooth shooting dynamic. Originally perfected on the Heckler & Koch G3 rifle, it has been used on several other HK firearms still serving today around the world.

The SP5 is manufactured in Heckler & Koch’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany. It retains many of the critical elements of the MP5, including its precision-machined components and attention to detail. This high level of quality and workmanship is a result of making the SP5 in the same factory, on the same lines, and by the same workforce that has been making MP5s for years.

A wide variety of accessories can be added to increase its functionality. As the world’s most popular pistol-caliber carbine platform, the MP5 and SP5 are supported by an aftermarket loaded with lots of great accessories.

 jRH8bEoQ

The SP5 is shipping now. MSRP is $2,799.

Heckler & Koch is the world’s premier small arms systems company and a major supplier to global military, law enforcement agencies, and civilian shooters.

NSSF Releases Firearms Production Figures

For immediate release | December 3, 2019

NSSF The Firearms Industry Trade Association

More than 17.7 million Modern Sporting Rifles in Private Ownership

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry trade association, released the 2017 Firearms Production Report to members. The report compiles the most up to date information based on data sourced from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF’s) Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Reports (AFMER). Key findings for public release showed:

  • The estimated total number of firearms in civilian possession from 1986-2018 is 422.9 million, according to data reported in the ATF’s Firearms Commerce Report in the United States 2019 report and including the preliminary 2018 Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Exportation Report (AFMER) figures.
  • 17,740,000 Modern Sporting Rifles are in private ownership today.
  • More than half (54%) of all rifles produced in 2017 were modern sporting rifles.
  • In 2017, 7,901,218 total firearms were produced and imported. Of those, 4,411,923 were pistols and revolvers, 2,821,945 were rifles and 667,350 were shotguns.
  • An interim 2018 estimate showed a total 7,660,772 total firearms were produced and imported. Of those 4,277,971 were pistols and revolvers, 2,846,757 were rifles and 535,994 were shotguns. Those are interim reports and will be updated as complete information becomes available.
  • Firearms-ammunition manufacturing accounted for nearly 12,000 employees producing over $4.1 billion in goods shipped in 2017. An estimated 8.1 billion rounds, of all calibers and gauges, were produced in 2018 for the U.S. market.

“These figures show the industry that America has a strong desire to continue to purchase firearms for lawful purposes,” said Joe Bartozzi, President of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. “The Modern Sporting Rifle continues to be the most popular centerfire rifle sold in America today and is clearly a commonly-owned firearm with more than 17 million in legal private ownership today. The continued popularity of handguns demonstrates a strong interest by Americans to protect themselves and their homes, and to participate in the recreational shooting sports.”

The report also shows that as lawful firearms ownership in America continues to grow, criminal and unintentional misuse of firearms is falling. During the 25-year period covered in this report (1993–2017) the violent crime rate has decreased by 48.6 percent and unintentional firearm-related fatalities have declined by 68 percent.

 

About NSSF

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of thousands of manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers nationwide.

The New CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis

A Competition Ready-Tack Driver That’s Also…Affordable!

Kansas City, KS (December 3, 2019) – CZ-USA debuts its very first chassis rifle; the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis chambered in 22 LR.

Ready for competition right out of the box, the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis is built on an aluminum chassis and weighs in at 7 pounds. The rifle is available in two different barrel lengths, with a 16.5-inch and a 24-inch version. The adjustable Luth-AR stock can be configured to fit nearly any shooter, comfortably.  Likewise, the trigger is adjustable for weight, creep and over travel, so it can quickly and easily be fine-tuned for each shooter.

The CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis’ five-round magazine is detachable. The barrel is factory threaded 1/2×28 for a suppressor, and the two-position, push-to-fire safety system provides intuitive protection.

The bolt-on the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis rotates just 60º, allowing plenty of room between bolt handle and scope for easier cycling of rounds. That generous space provided by the short rotation of the bolt also allows for rifle scopes with larger ocular bell diameters and lower ring heights.

The forend on the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis provides an exceptional accessorizing capability with QD sling pockets and plenty of M-LOK slots. Since the rifle is sold without sights, the rifle’s receiver features CZ-USA’s 11mm dovetail milled right into the receiver for easy mounting of optics and rails.

Competition, hunting, practice, and just fun shooting: the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis covers all these bases and more, in a modern-looking package that shooters can afford!
