NEW: Palmetto State Armory PSA 9mm AKV

Coming this fall from Palmetto State Armory: the PSA 9mm AKV, an American-made 9x19mm Parabellum Vityaz. The Vityaz is a Russian AK design based on the AK-74.

Well the Civilian Marksmanship Program has them and they’ve just announced pricing. But to get one, you’ll have to be lucky. First, the Secretary of the Army only released 8000 pistols […]

Hands on With the New B&T APC9 SD

While at the NRAAM in Dallas I had the chance to play with the new B&T APC9 SD. Like all things B&T it just oozes quality. Many of the newer guns that claim to be integrally suppressed really just have a reflex suppressor that screws on the barrel and a rear bulkhead. Not the APC9 […]
