Gundog Grind Small Batch Coffee Now Available

Wednesday, July 29th, 2020

CHAPIN, South Carolina – July 29, 2020 – A new breed of coffee for hunters, America’s favorite gundogs and outdoor enthusiasts has arrived. Gundog Grind was created by hunters with an appreciation for aromatic, delicious-tasting coffee. Every bag sold generates money for conservation and all roasts are available and shipping now.

Gundog Grind isn’t just about the coffee. It’s a passion-fueled lifestyle founded by past experiences and relationships. The packaging was wonderfully illustrated by an artist and fellow hunter who captured the timeless beauty of America’s favorite hunting breeds. For lovers of English Setters, Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Cocker Spaniels, German Shorthair Pointers and more, delicious Gundog Grind coffee is ideal for celebrating every day.

“Launching this brand and getting coffee into the hands of dog trainers, breeders, hunters and outdoorspeople everywhere is very exciting,” said Gundog Grind Co-Founder and owner Joe Whitman. “We’ve worked hard to get here and it’s just the beginning. We hope our commitment to gundogs, hunters and conservation is evident from day one.”

Only the Best Grinds

The team at Gundog Grind interviewed more than 50 roasters, sampled and taste-tested even more roasts and concepted dozens of packaging options to find the right recipe. All roasts (whole bean or ground) are crafted and selected in collaboration with an exclusive roaster in Gundog Grind’s home state of South Carolina. The proven expertise and experience can be tasted with each cup. Gundog Grind prides itself on selective quality that results in cup ratings of over 90. In comparison, many other small batch coffees tout ratings in the low 80s on their premium blends.

“The result is something we’re proud of and we hope hunters and fellow coffee-aficionados appreciate and get behind,” said Chief Operations Officer and Co-Founder Matt Carter. “This is the start of a community of outdoors people committed to friends, family and creating hunting opportunities for generations to come. On that note, we hope to announce some exciting partnerships with some of our favorite conservation groups very soon. We’re thrilled with the response so far and can’t wait to grow.”

Retail, OEM and Private Label Options Available

Gundog Grind offers retailers, outfitters and preserves special options to carry Gundog Grind for sale on location. Special programs and pricing are also available for co-branded and private label options as well.

SIG SAUER Introduces PROFORCE M18 Airsoft Pistol

Monday, July 20th, 2020

NEWINGTON, N.H., (July 20, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the SIG AIR® PROFORCE® M18® airsoft pistol.

This newest addition to the SIG AIR PROFORCE line is a replica of the U.S. Military issued M18 handgun in look, balance and handling characteristics. As with all SIG PROFORCE airsoft products, the M18 is designed for professional training and for discerning recreational airsoft shooters who demand the highest quality and reliability.

The PROFORCE M18 has an optic-ready slide with removable rear sight plate for easy mounting of the soon to be released SIG AIR Reflex Sight. Like the PROFORCE M17, the M18 is field strippable and features a polymer frame and metal slide with full blowback action. The magazine holds 21 rounds of 6mm polymer or biodegradable airsoft BBs. The PROFORCE M18 also has an adjustable hop-up feature and picatinny accessory rail. It comes standard with a flush mount, green gas magazine. A CO2 cartridge magazine is also available and sold separately.

“The SIG P320-M18 handgun is very popular because of its adoption with the U.S. military as part of the Modular Handgun System. It has since become the official handgun of the U.S. Marine Corps, and was most recently adopted as the official handgun of the U.S. Air Force, which has only increased the demand for the handgun in the civilian market,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The SIG AIR PROFORCE M18 has the same look and feel as the P320-M18 making it the perfect option for training in a variety of environments and refining your technique when you can’t make it to the range.”

PROFORCE M18 Airsoft Pistol:

Total length; 7.7 inches
Barrel length: 3.5 inches
Power Source: Green Gas or CO2
Caliber: 6mm BB

THE AMG UH-1 Gen II HOLOGRAPHIC SIGHT – UNSTOPPABLE, DAY OR NIGHT

Thursday, July 16th, 2020

BARNEVELD, Wis. – When our customers talk, we listen.

Just look at the brand-new, American made AMG® UH-1® Gen II: Tactically-minded shooters loved the Gen I’s rugged reliability and lightning-quick target acquisition in close quarters, but they craved night-vision compatibility. The AMG® UH-1® Gen II answers that call in a big way.

With four night-vision compatible settings and a dedicated night-vision button, the Gen II is ready to light the way, day and night, keeping the incredibly fast EBR-CQB reticle clear. For quick transitions between night-vision and daylight performance, the Gen II features immediate recall to a shooter’s last daylight setting.

To make target acquisition even faster, we’ve increased the viewing window’s already generous size. And target acquisition isn’t the only thing that’s gotten faster: A truly toolless battery cover makes battery replacement fast and easy to keep your Gen II up and running.

At the same time, shooters will find all the features that made the Gen I such a powerful tactical solution. The incredibly clean and intuitive reticle is simple and fast, and FHQ™ technology virtually eliminates stray light emissions for stealth movement with no forward signature. Also included is the integrated quick-disconnect mount for easy on, easy off convenience.

The best part is, Vortex® was able to build all that innovation into a lighter platform, giving shooters even more maneuverability.

The AMG® UH-1® Gen II proves that when you listen to your customers, great things happen.

MSRP:
$799.99 – AMG® UH-1® Gen II Holographic Sight

Amend2 Releases First Ever Polymer 6.5 Grendel Mags

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO – July 14, 2020 – Amend2 Magazines is proud to announce new 6.5 Grendel magazines. These are the first ever polymer magazines dedicated to the 6.5 Grendel. The new magazines provide a lightweight and durable option for the growing number of shooters who prefer the capabilities of 6.5 Grendel and are ideal for 6mm ARC cartridges, too.

“Amend2’s 6.5 Grendel magazine provides impeccable reliability,” said Matt Bellitti, Amend2 General Manager. “These mags have been designed from the inside out to prevent nose-diving, and to ensure stability and control for the wide 6.5 Grendel cases.”

The Amend2 10 round 6.5 Grendel magazine is a sturdy, reliable AR15/M4/M16 magazine made of an advanced glass-filled polymer. It is a light, durable and excellent alternative to the standard M4/M16 USGI aluminum/steel magazines. The patented design combines internal stabilizing ribs and a new 6.5 Grendel follower. The result is lighter, easier to load, and provides greater reliability than any other Grendel magazine on the market.

Inside the magazine, rounds stack in a staggered pattern that narrows into a single stack at the top for optimal feeding. Because these magazines index rounds with the case wall instead of the case neck, they will also work flawlessly with 6mm ARC.

The first of these new 6.5 Grendel magazines will hold 10 rounds, making it ideal for benchrest and long-distance shooting. The magazines come in a variety of colors, including Black, Flat Dark Earth, OD Green and Gray and are available now.

FEATURES:

  • Sturdy Impact resistant polymer with textured grip
  • Anti-tilt super follower
  • Heavy duty, non-memory, and non-corrosive stainless steel spring
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Material able to cerakote
  • Proprietary Grendel internal design
