Ask Foghorn: How Crappy Is The Steyr TMP’s Trigger?

Here’s our man Nick, dry-testing the trigger on a tricked-out Steyr TMP at the SHOT Show last month. I had the chance to shoot one a few months ago (click here to read all about it), and I’m glad I got to check off another exotic gun on the “Call Of Duty” roster but this Austrian oddity was not much fun to shoot. I guess Nick doesn’t like the trigger either. (Feel free to ignore the Back To The Future-esque time stamp on the video.)

Magpul Shelves 60-Rounder, Offers Magazine Clamp

The SHOT Show is over, but TTAG’s Truth Squad still has some catching-up to do. In this case we bring news that Magpul as much as confirmed to Nick and myself that their quad-stack 60-round AR magazine is on hold, possibly permanently.

FNH USA has been working on an experimental “personal defense weapon” version of the SCAR, and was showing it off at the NDIA symposium this week. With a little help from David Crane at Defense Review (who also doubled as cameraman for this video) I was able to fire off a couple shots. What did I think? Well, it’s uncomfortable to hold, pretty hard to control, and felt like there were some gasses escaping the back of the receiver and hitting my cheek. But for close quarters combat it seems pretty useful. David has a really good write up of the gun on his website.
