We love us some suppressed hunting! Chambered in 8.6 Blackout or 375 Raptor, both of which are designed to send heavy, big[ger] bore slugs at both supersonic and subsonic velocities (they do to .308 what 300 Blackout did to .223), the Black Collar Arms Pork Sword Stalker looks like a short, handy, heavy-hitting bolt gun that’s begging to be suppressed. Always great to see a factory SBR option, too!

Black Collar’s press release follows:

Black Collar Arms Pork Sword Stalker

Leander, TX (10/11/2022) – Chambered in either 8.6 Blackout or 375 Raptor, the new Pork Sword Stalker from Black Collar Arms is a big bore 12-inch shorty that’s purpose built for hunting and tactical use. 

Designed to fire both supersonic and subsonic ammunition, the suppressor-ready Pork Sword Stalker is compact and lightweight. It’s especially handy and capable in tight environments such as in a side-by-side or other vehicle, in a deer blind, on foot in brush or other tricky terrain, or in many tactical situations.

At the same time, the match-grade barrel, Pork Sword Custom Action, and impressive ballistics of these two, hard-hitting cartridges can deliver big game stopping energy on targets hundreds of yards away with fantastic accuracy. For example, the Pork Sword Stalker in 375 Raptor delivers 270 grain soft point projectiles with sub-MOA accuracy and over 1,000 ft-lbs of retained energy onto targets beyond 550 yards away. All from a 12-inch barrel!

The Black Collar Arms Pork Sword Stalker is available as a pistol or as a factory SBR. Caliber-matched AB Suppressor Raptor 8 silencer packages are also available directly from the Pork Sword Stalker page.

    • Yes, I think everyone knows that as I always make it very clear on any article I write in which Black Collar is mentioned (see recent “choose the right bullet for the job” one). I don’t review my own stuff, either. Press releases are their own animal as we copy-and-paste press releases from basically every company in the industry and forwarding a PR thing along is in no way any sort of endorsement or recommendation or whatever.

  1. I’m a big fan of .300 BLK. Really curious about the larger 8.6 BLK and wondering how it stacks up against other larger, established bores for naughty piggies such as .458 SOCOM or .50 Beowulf.

  2. I love it when the “military-industrial complex” comes up with new and exciting products.
    And yes I’m serious.

    • We do ’em in Creedmoor, just not in this specific Stalker config. But a 12-inch 6.5 CM pistol or SBR or a 16-inch rifle, all with our deep spiral fluted barrels, is absolutely on the table. Jimmy, the owner of Atibal Optics, recently took a gorgeous, massive red stag with a 12-inch Pork Sword SBR in 6.5 CM. They’re fantastic guns and super accurate. Sure, the 375 R would have knocked that stag over, but his perfectly well-placed shot with the CM did the trick just fine.

  3. The hell kind of name is “Pork Sword Stalker”? Is it made specifically for shooting people in the dick?

    • Ehhhh, it’s not bad. 8.6 feels like .308 and 375 R feels like heavy .308. Big solid push. Same amount of gunpowder, heavier bullet. It’s thumpy but much more pleasant than any magnum cartridge. The effect downrange is quite impressive.

  4. I like the concept. Stripped down and light weight. Keep the weight near 4 pounds and chamber it in .22 magnum and it would be a dandy little survival gun. Make the stock foldable.

    • The stock folds (see second pic). We actually have made Pork Swords in .22 LR and can do .22 WMR, but the weight doesn’t change as it’s still exactly the same size gun with the same size action, etc. There are some cool little .22 WMR survival guns out there! That’s not really the niche for the Pork Sword setup though…we’re geared more toward deer and hog hunting, ranch use, tactical use (LE SWAT, etc), “truck gun” kinda stuff, fun on the shooting range, suppressed shooting. In the correct chamberings though it would be a handy, compact “survival gun.” But if you’re going rimfire I guess I’d go even smaller and even lighter.

  5. MAYBE I COULD TALK MY UNCLE N LAW INTO GETN ONE AND WATCH HIMSHOOT IT
    HE’S 55 AN I’M 73 … THANKS FOR INFOR ALWAYS

  6. Along time ago people were prudent. They used the tiniest lead projectile and the least amount of powder it took to kill the game they were going after.
    400grains of lead would make a lot of .22LR and a .22LR will kill a pig.
    I’ve not found the .300wthrby to be doing me much more then my 30-06 does.
    More recoil, more powder, and a little more range is about all I’m getting out of it.

    • You tried .35 Whelan? It’s just a necked up 06, but it’s a super effective and mild shooting round. .300 Weatherby wants full power loading’s and a 26″ barrel.

      • .35 looks good, how about .35 if you dont reload? But there we are back at what it takes to do it, a 180gr .35 isnt goin to have the sd a .308 will. .35 really starts to shine in the 200gr’s. More lead.. For instance a 245 grained sabot in a .50 cal BP. Why not shoot a ..45 caliber? Bears, if I’m going after bears I dont want a black powder.

        • When I was young and immortal I decided I wanted to hunt grizzly with a bp rifle. A polar bear was my first choice but can’t hunt them. Now that my immortality has faded, what the hell was I thinking?

        • 9.3 x 62 sounds perfect for you then. That’s usually a 250 at 2400ish. Too bad you don’t reload, because it’s as scarce as hen’s teeth in the States.

    • I recently killed 6 pigs with a .22 LR and let me tell you, it does NOT work equivalently to 375 Raptor. You have to be a cold-hearted nasty murdering bastard to kill hogs with a .22.

  7. .35 looks good, how about .35 if you dont reload? But there we are back at what it takes to do it, a 180gr .35 isnt goin to have the sd a .308 will. .35 really starts to shine in the 200gr’s. More lead.. For instance a 245 grained sabot in a .50 cal BP. Why not shoot a ..45 caliber? Bears, if I’m going after bears I dont want a black powder.

  8. “Black Collar Arms Stock Option

    Folded: 22.8″

    22.8?

    I thought an OAL of at least 26 inches was required for it to not be an unregistered SBR?

    • “Choice of no rear accessory, SB Tactical FS1913 pistol brace, or Black Collar Arms folding Stock Option (factory SBR! All NFA regulations apply and it must transfer to an SOT dealer who will do your ATF Form 4)”

    • Yeah it’s an SBR, but that’s because of the 12-inch barrel not because of the overall length. ATF measures OAL in the gun’s longest configuration, not the shortest, so it’s the stock-extended measurement that would be relevant here for that. Short Barrel Rifle definition is a two-part thing and you have to meet either one: rifle with barrel under 16″ in length *or* max overall firearm length under 26″.

  9. “For example, the Pork Sword Stalker in 375 Raptor delivers 270 grain soft point projectiles with sub-MOA accuracy and over 1,000 ft-lbs of retained energy onto targets beyond 550 yards away. All from a 12-inch barrel!”

    Can you release the data and testing on that for this ‘Pork Sword Stalker in 375 Raptor’, please?

    Sounds interesting.

    • Check out http://www.blackcollararms.com/375raptor or http://www.375raptor.com

      That claim is with Speer 270 grain SPBT projectiles at 2,200 FPS, which is a little hotter than what you can expect from factory-loaded ammo with its extra healthy margin for safety built in but can be easily, safely achieved if you load your own. I’m used to the Pork Swords in 375 R being 0.5 to 0.75 MOA guns (five shots, not three). I’m sure the accuracy in 8.6 BLK is going to be extremely good as well. We’re excited to build and offer guns in 8.6 and to get out and do some hunting with it.
