Blast From The Past – Internet Movie Firearms Database

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

I’m sure you know about the Internet Movie Database, or imdb.com, another one of those internet time sinks that has information on almost every movie ever along with almost every actor ever, the parts they’ve played, etc. Since this is the internet, where just about any damn thing can be found, and copycats are common, somebody made a similar site in the form of a Wiki, but with firearms as the primary focus instead of movies and actors, even calling it the internet movie firearms database. On the site, you can look up what movies, television shows, and video games a firearm has been in, what firearms a movie, television show, or video game has featured, and even what firearms and in what show/movie/video game an actor has used.

It’s pretty exhaustive, which makes games of 6-degrees-of-a-Beretta-92F all the easier to play.

Arsenal, Inc – SAM7K Pistol With Sig Sauer’s SB15

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

LAS VEGAS, NV – Arsenal, Inc. is introducing a new configuration to our successful line of Bulgarian-made SAM7K 7.62×39 caliber pistols, now with Sig Sauer’s SB15 pistol stabilizing brace*.

SAM7K03ai

The first variation of the SAM7K pistol was introduced in 2013, and became an instant success. The SAM7K pistol is manufactured with Arsenal’s exclusive forged then milled receiver, original Bulgarian hammer forged chrome lined barrel, flip-adjustable peep rear sight, and ambidextrous safety lever.

The Sig-Sauer SB15 pistol stabilizing brace used on the SAM7K-03 is a veteran-designed aid that is made to improve the single-handed shooting performance of a pistol. By using the operator’s forearm, it provides a stable support to reduce felt recoil and minimize accuracy-robbing spin and shift. The stabilizing brace sits on the receiver extension, and the flexible cuff with two adjustable nylon straps allows the brace to be custom fit to any user. The receiver extension has a water proof storage compartment with a sealing threaded cap. It is accessible when the brace is removed or pushed all the way forward.

* The SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace is manufactured and provided by Sig Sauer. This product has been reviewed by the BATFE and was determined that it does not alter the classification of the firearm or subject the firearm to NFA control. To download the BATFE compliance letter, click here. Sig Sauer donates $3 of every SB15 sold to support the veterans of HAVA.

Tennessee Arms Company – The Ghost Gun Clear Stripped Lower Receiver

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

ghost1__29770.1406213173.1280.1280

Tennessee Arms Company is offering what they call the “Ghost Gun”, a clear stripped AR-15 lower receiver. Made from UV stabilized Nylon that is highly resistant to oils and lubricants, the Ghost Gun is a fully functional lower, although tnarmsco notes it is intended more as a teaching tool and for product showcase than for hard use. If anything else, it’ll definitely make for a great conversation starter at the range. Pair it with a transparent magazine or two for double the fun.

B&T AG – VP9

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Vet Pistol

Designed at the request of a large animal doctor who was called out to deal with animals that have been hit by cars on the Autobahn, the VP9 (Veterinarian Pistol – 9mm) is a quiet, single-shot pistol intended use when putting down injured animals and wounded game.

The pistol and suppressor components of the VP9 were developed simultaneously to produce the most quiet 9mm pistol in the world. Capable of a reduction of 31.5 dB, the suppressor is designed so that even standard 124 gr. FMJ ammunition won’t reach supersonic speed, producing a noise level as low as 129 dB – roughly the same level of noise as a car door closing; use of subsonic ammunition further lowers the sound signature to around 125 dB. In fact, according to B&T, the shot is so quiet that manipulating the bolt-like-action to cycle another round is louder than the shot itself.

No word on when the VP9 will be available for purchase, however it was featured in the April 2014 issue of the B&T Partner Update, so expect further updates soon.

Arsenal, Inc. Releases New Addition To The SAM7 Family – The SAM7UF Combines High Quality, Modern Features, & Affordability

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

20140410-180502.jpg

LAS VEGAS, NV — Arsenal, Inc. is proud to announce the expansion of its SAM7 Family products. The SAM7UF rifle is the latest in the growing group of firearms to join the modern SAM family and incorporates the latest technologies, quality, and workmanship the American market has come to expect from Arsenal and SAM7 series.

The SAM7UF is a 7.62x39mm semi-automatic rifle, manufactured on Arsenal’s legendary hot-die forged and milled receiver and incorporates the modern under-folding buttstock. Loyal to its traditions, Arsenal has manufactured the SAM7UF rifle with all mil-spec and premium components, including the hard chrome lined hammer forged barrel, reinforced polymer pistol grip and hand guards, stainless steel heat shield, the 90-degree vertical gas block with bayonet/accessories lug, and the original 14x1mm left-hand muzzle threads.

20140410-180526.jpg

The SAM7UF utilizes the modern straight-back under-folding stock, which locks perpendicular to the action and the bore of the rifle. In order to provide a more secure and firm lock, whether in a folded or extended position, this stock locks on both sides of the receiver with 4 solid pins. This, with the additional reinforcement in the arms of the stock, stabilizes the rifle, which significantly reduces the climb, and gives the shooter much firmer control over the firearm for improved accuracy and effectiveness.

If the rifle looks familiar, it made a brief appearance as the SAS M-7 when Arsenal, Inc. released it as a limited run. Two years ago, Arsenal began serious work on a refined version that integrated maximum precision and new manufacturing processes. What cost just over $2,000 a few years ago will retail with the introductory price of:

MSRP: $1299.00

On top of this already amazing introductory price, the first batch of rifles will include a $50 coupon toward purchase of Arsenal accessories from K-Var Corp.

SilencerCo: The Wizard’s Staff

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

The Wizard Staff has a unique CTA baffle stack consisting of 44 polished Mithril baffles designed for an infinite dB reduction of sound. The 36 inches of soundless magic is easily disassembled by even the most novice necromancer to provide full user serviceability. The ageless construction of rare and exotic materials makes the Wizard Staff indestructible. The eternal warranty ensures the Wizard Staff will last as long as any immortal being wielding this impressive firearm silencer.

Sounds like a helluva great .22 suppressor. Too bad the waiting period for a 200 Sliver Sheckel tax stamp has gone up to over a year ever since the Bureau of Destructive Magical Devices has replaced their original Owl-based filing system with one staffed entirely by magical shell-less turtles; you know some hippy-ass druid in high office is getting a nice kickback for that bit of “infrastructure improvement”…

MKS Supply, LLC, Dayton OH, March 2014 – Mfour .22 LR Rimfire carbine still a great and low cost fun firearm.

Osprey Range Day – Introduction And Overview

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

We were recently lucky enough to be invited to a range day sponsored by Osprey Armament – in association with Defense Logistics Support and PWT3 Development. This “Overmatch Concepts” Range Day was held at the Osprey Range located in Council, North Carolina. Our host for the day’s events was Retired US Army Major General David Grange, head of Osprey Global Solutions and a legend in the Ranger community.

The event kicked off with the usual admin brief for range safety and MEDEVAC plans along with the facility layout. Then, General Grange jumped right into a brief overview of the day’s events, which included an operational vignette, weapons demonstrations, and round robin group visits of products and services from partners of Osprey Global Solutions.

As it turns out, the day was set to be filled with a wide variety of technologies ranging from low to high tech. In addition to weapons there were ISR capabilities including trackers and forensic evidence collection as well as medical, and training demos. While some of it might seem old-hat, the attendees included military, LE, first responders and industry. Everyone saw something new.

The Operational Vignette was a scenario involving a raid on a terrorist bomb making element that has infiltrated the area of the Cape Fear river, represented by the buildings down range. A tracking team confirmed the location of the bomb making element, and passed the information along to an assault team who took down the building. Afterwards, an EOD team disarmed the explosives while a rescue team stood by to provide rescue and medical services as needed. It was constrained by both time and the limits of the facility but included examples of a wide variety of the “Overmatch Concepts” that were the point of the entire day.

DSC03266

One thing I noticed was a lot of work on battlefield obscurants. Long a bailiwick of the military engineer community, it was refreshing to see a renewed effort on their application for some more non traditional roles. MSI Delivery Systems was on hand, supplying obscurants via their AB2K Multi-Mission Aerosol Delivery System. The standalone version of the AB2K-MMADS is capable of dispensing up to 50,000 cubic feet of smoke coverage per load. A dependent version with a high capacity backpack can dispense over 320,000 cubic feet of smoke coverage. Additionally, the AB2K-MMADS can easily be configured to dispense smoke mixed with irritants for crowd control, or specialized chemicals for uses such as decontamination and infestation control.

There was also a team on hand using a remote control plane as a UAS surrogate investigating the aerial delivery of battlefield obscurants. Although it took a few runs for the effect of the test obscurant to become noticeable, testing is ongoing, and from what we’ve seen so far the system does have promise.

DSC03282

Additionally, the obscurant used at the range was water based; an oil-based obscurant is also being tested.

Look for several more stories today which provide details of some of the weapons we encountered. We’d like to once again thank MG Grange and his team for their hospitality and for setting up a great program.
