Hands-On With FightLite Raider and MCR (Range Video)

In the fall, we saw FightLite’s Raider (“SCR Pistol”) at NASGW, and it generated a ton of interest. Also, a ton of questions about whether the little pirate pistol would be shootable or controllable. Or possibly even wrist-snapping. SHOT Show’s Industry Day on the Range answered these concerns as I put a few rounds downrange […]

New From GlockStore: 80% GLOCK 43-Compatible Frame

GlockStore has just released the first sub-compact, 80% pistol frame to the market. Finish the SS80 not-yet-a-firearm at home to turn it into a functional tool. Well, after filling it with GLOCK 43 parts . . . Locking block and rails are inserts that you’ll pin into the frame after drilling the appropriate holes and […]

Hands on with the LaRue Siete Bolt Action Rifle

LaRue Tactical has been teasing us with a bolt action rifle for at least three years. As a die hard [with a vengeance] LaRue customer I was particularly excited to get my hands on the new LaRue Siete at SHOT Show. As you’d expect from a rifle named after the Spanish word for seven, the […]

New From FN: FDE & Black Series

Our man Foghorn couldn’t make it to SHOT Show this year. I honored TTAG’s first T&E guy by getting the scoop on his favorite thing: slightly modified guns released as exciting new products. At SHOT 2018 FN brought the noise with their “FDE & Black Series” . . . Yup: lots of firearm models each […]

New From Armaspec: AR Sound Mitigation Buffer

I’m a huge fan of JP Rifles’ Silent Captured Spring. Its smooth and quiet operation makes the AR-15, well, smoother and quieter. Less toy-like. But it’s expensive at about $139. Armaspec appears to have developed a solution to quiet operation and high cost with their Sound Mitigation Buffer (SMB). It costs a cool . . […]

New from Charles Daly: 14″ Honcho Pump Action Shotgun

Charles Daly is no stranger to strange firearms. The importer sells the world’s ugliest AK-style 9mm pistol, the PAK-9. They’re also the company behind a popular range of tri-barreled shotguns called, unsurprisingly, Triple Threat. At SHOT, Mr. Daly’s mob introduced the newest member in the NFA buster club . . . The Honcho. Available in 12 gauge, […]

New From Amend2: GLOCK Magazines

“But does it take GLOCK mags?” asks every other gun meme of 2017. Well, Amend2 does you one better: it is GLOCK mags! The young AR-15 magazine manufacturer has just branched out into providing products o’ plenty for the planet’s preferred polymer pistol. Amend2 mags are available or coming soon for Gaston’s G42, G43, G19, […]

Hands-On With The New SIG SAUER P365 EDC 9mm [VIDEO]

The SIG SAUER P365 is the Austro-American gunmaker’s new “micro-compact” carry gun. The gun’s 1″ wide (at the controls). You can cram 10 rounds into SIG’s patent-pending narrow-neck modified double-stack magazine; delivering “nearly a 50 percent capacity increase over pistols in its class.” We micro-scoped it out at SHOT . . . I checked out the P365’s […]

Forward Defense Munitions L5 Caseless Ammo 5-Bore Rifle

SHOT Show’s NEXT area is an exhibit hall for start-ups and small companies. It’s always full of interesting products and fresh ideas, and Forward Defense Munitions certainly had something unique to show off . . . The L5 uses charge block ammunition that’s fed left-to-right through an action very light on moving parts. Instead of […]
