SIG Sauer MPX – SHOT 2013

Friday, January 18th, 2013


The SIG MPX is a submachine gun designed to operate with a fully closed and locked rotating bolt system. It employs a gas-operated short stroke piston system and the bolt is held open on the last round fired. The MPX can be configured for three calibers, 9mm, .357SIG, and .40S&W, by swapping out for the appropriate barrel. An integral picatinny rail at 12 o’clock allows for the use of optics, including the SIG MPX reflex sight. The ambidextrous safety/selector switch and magazine release are quite reminiscent of the AR-style. The stock system is user-configurable, with options for a telescoping, pistol, or folding stock. Magazines comes in 10/20 or 30 round configurations. The MPX itself comes in five styles: MPX (standard), MPX-K (compact variant), MPX-P (pistol variant), MPX-SD (integrally suppressed), and MPX-C (carbine variant).

Freedom Fighter AK – SHOT 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013


Black Rain Ordnance is expanding their line of rifles to include the AK-derivative Freedom Fighter in 7.62×39. Its features include a free float quad rail fore end, ambidextrous selector switch, rubberized pistol grip, and a Magpul UBR stock. It’s being displayed at the booth in two color options: a light, steel gray and olive drab. Also worth mentioning is the weight, as in its current form its a pretty hefty beast, especially in the fore end. Still in the prototype stage, Black Rain plans to release it later this year.

SRM 1216 – SHOT 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013


The SRM 1216 is a semiautomatic shotgun that uses a unique 16-round detachable magazine made of four individual 4-round magazine tubes that the operator rotates as needed, referred to as manual index. The 1216 offers ambidextrous controls as the charging handle, bolt release, safety controls, ejection port, and sling plate are all configurable to a left or right position. Top mounted picatinny rails allow for the attachment of sights and other accessories. An interchangeable bolt allows for the use of both lethal and less than lethal ammunition.

FNX-45 Tactical – SHOT 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013


The FNX-45 Tactical is an update on the FNP-45 Tactical pistol. It features a polymer checkered frame with interchangeable backstraps, a serrated trigger guard, and picatinny accessory rail. The stainless steel slide features an external extractor with loaded chamber indicator, front and rear cocking serrations, and two mounting bases for the use of an electronic red dot sight. The barrel comes threaded for the use of suppressors or compensators, and all the controls are fully ambidextrous (decocking/safety lever, slide stop, and mag release). If you’re wondering what’s ultimately different between the FNP-45 and FNX-45 aside from a few improvements and aesthetic changes, the later uses a new magazine which is incompatible with the former model. To offset this a bit, a new FNX-45 comes with three 15 round mags.

FN M3M (GAU-21) – SHOT 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013


The FN M3M, designated as the GAU-21 by the US Navy, is chambered for .50 BMG and fires at a rate of 1100 rpm using an open-bolt operation and a dual recoil buffer system. The effective range of the M3M is 2500 meters (approx. 1.5 miles) with a maximum range of 6500 meters (approx. 4 miles). It operates independent of either electrical or hydraulic power sources and has a unique soft mount system that enhances accuracy and minimizes recoil forces transmitted to the airframe. The M3M been approved by the DoD for use with all branches of the military as the Common Defense Weapon System for all current and future rotary-wing aircraft.

MP7A1 UTM – SHOT 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013


If it’s blue, it must be a training gun, right? Well, that thought process would be completely correct in regards to the MP7A1 UTM. It’s a specially modified variant of the famed PDW that’s designed to use non-lethal ammunition made by Ultimate Training Munitions.

Magpul Booth – SHOT 2013

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

UTS-15 Shotgun – SHOT 2013

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013


The UTS-15 is a shotgun by Turkish firm UTAS that in many ways is an update on the Neostead 2000 shotgun, with its bullpup design, dual tube magazines located above the barrel, and ability to alternately feed from both tubes. It’s constructed largely from polymer, with the bolt, barrel, and flash suppressor machined from 4140 steel. It features an AR-15 style manual safety switch, and the integrated top mounted picatinny rail allows for iron sights and/or optics. An optional fore-end integrated light/laser combo can be added to the UTS-15. The UTS-15 is chambered for 2 1/2″, 2 3/4″, and 3″ magnum shotshells.

Arsenal Firearms AF2011-A1 – SHOT 2013

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013


Arsenal Firearms’ AF2011-A1 was on display at SHOT Show this year. For those who are unfamiliar, the AF2011-A1 is a double-barreled 1911… yeah, you read that right. Both the frame and slide are custom machined from 39NiCrMo steel, although it does use standard Colt 1911 parts for many of the internals; the sights are also interchangeable with a standard 1911. The magazine consists of two separate 8-round magazines connected by a single floor plate. The company claims the AF2011-A1 is currently the “most powerful and highest stopping power semiautomatic pistol on the world market”, as a payload exceeding 4000 grains of .45 ACP (16+2 capacity) can be fired from the pistol in roughly 3 seconds. Other specifications include a total length of roughly 8 inches with a barrel length of 5 inches, a width of two inches, and a weight of roughly 4 lbs unloaded.

First Spear Media Range Day

Monday, January 14th, 2013

First Spear, along with Renegade Armor, Wilcox, and Aimpoint, sponsored a media range day at the Las Vegas metropolitan police department firing range. Three ranges were set up, with the first two featuring rifles by H&K and LMT, and pistols by Nighthawk Custom and SIG Sauer. The third range featured something a bit more exotic: rifles by FERFRANS, who are known for their Delayed Sear Activation System. This system made the 7.5″ 5.56 SCW PDW very controllable when fired in full-auto. It’s also very likely this system was responsible for reducing the felt recoil of the 7.62 SOACR near 5.56 levels. Wilcox also had demonstrations of their breaching torch technology; seeing the torch used to melt through rebar as quickly as it did was impressive. Overall, it was a great media day that offered the chance to try out some truly fantastic firearms.

TrackingPoint – “Precision Guided Firearms”

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

TrackingPoint is an Austin-based start up that designed three “Precision Guided Firearms”. These PGFs are highly modified bolt-action rifles fitted with advanced technologies including a computerized scope, powered by Linux, that features a HUD (heads up display) which, at the press of a button near the trigger, marks the target. It then measures multiple environmental conditions, including range, ambient temperature and humidity, and the age of the rifle’s barrel to plot the perfect shot; just aim at the plotted mark and pull the trigger. An iOS app also allows users to connect their iDevices to the scope’s display, to act as a spotter, and the scope’s video recordings can be uploaded to video sharing sites complete with HUD data. The pricing on the PGFs starts at around 17,000 USD, and you have to buy TrackingPoint’s hand loaded ammunition to insure proper performance, but hey, every rifle also comes with an iPad that includes TrackingPoint’s app preloaded.

Silencerco 5.56 Saker

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

The Silencerco 5.56 Saker, which was introduced at last year’s SHOT Show, is in full production and will soon be available for purchase in stores. The Saker features key innovations that separate it from current suppressors offered by other companies. This includes the Multiple Accessory Attachment Device (MAAD), which is an interchangeable centerfire rifle mounting platform that allows for the user to attach the Saker, or other muzzle accessories, to their choice of many flash hiders and other mounts. Also of note is the Hoplon blast baffle, which deflects and cuts down on baffel erosion up to 90% using “”new to silencer design” materials, strategic reinforcements and improved geometry to achieve incomparable strength, longevity and repeatable accuracy.”

Laser Cut Dollar Snubnosed .38 Revolver

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

This is part of a collection of laser cut sculptures made from US currency by Brooklyn-based artist Scott Campbell. Although the rest of the collection seems to be missing any additional firearms-based imagery, there’s plenty of kick-ass skulls, bones, and reapers that more than make up for it.
