H&K Announces US Availability Of HK SP5

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

Columbus, Georgia — Heckler & Koch is proud to announce the US availability of the HK SP5, the only authentic sporting version of the legendary MP5 submachine gun available.

The SP5 was developed by HK as a semiautomatic, civilian sporting pistol that matches the look and feel of the legendary MP5 submachine gun.

“Our whole team is very proud and very excited to finally bring the SP5 to the US,” HK-USA COO/CSO Mike Holley said. “The MP5 isn’t just a customer favorite, it’s an HK employee favorite too. So, we are just thrilled to roll out the most authentic semiautomatic-only version of it we’ve seen in the US.”

Designed and manufactured to meet the definition of a civilian pistol, the SP5 is loaded with authentic features, like a Navy barrel with threaded tri-lug adaptor, paddle magazine release, fluted chamber and chrome-lined bore.

The backbone of the SP5 is the roller-delayed blowback operating system, which is legendary for its accuracy, reliability, and smooth shooting dynamic. Originally perfected on the Heckler & Koch G3 rifle, it has been used on several other HK firearms still serving today around the world.

The SP5 is manufactured in Heckler & Koch’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany. It retains many of the critical elements of the MP5, including its precision-machined components and attention to detail. This high level of quality and workmanship is a result of making the SP5 in the same factory, on the same lines, and by the same workforce that has been making MP5s for years.

A wide variety of accessories can be added to increase its functionality. As the world’s most popular pistol-caliber carbine platform, the MP5 and SP5 are supported by an aftermarket loaded with lots of great accessories.

The SP5 is shipping now. MSRP is $2,799.

SIG SAUER Delivers Milestone 100,000th M17 / M18 Handgun to U.S. Military

Sunday, November 24th, 2019

NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 22, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the delivery of the 100,000th M17 and M18 for the Modular Handgun System program to the U.S. Military, ahead of schedule, and surpassing the performance standards and requirements since the official contract award in January 2017.

“In the month of October SIG SAUER exceeded our manufacturing requirements by thirty percent and delivered a record-setting 12,100 handguns to the U.S. Military to achieve this historic milestone for SIG SAUER and the MHS program,” began Ron Cohen, President & CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc. “With the strict accuracy and acceptance specifications that the M17 and M18 are continuously exceeding, it’s clear that the success of this program can be directly attributed to the reliability, durability, and accuracy of the handgun, which has resulted in the high demand for both the M17 and M18 from every branch of the U.S. Military.”

The M17 and M18 handguns are a 9mm, striker-fired, P320-based handgun platform, featuring coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slides with black controls and utilize both 17-round and 21-round magazines. The handguns are equipped with SIGLITE front night sights, removable night sight rear plates, and manual safeties. To date SIG SAUER has delivered M17 and M18 handguns to all branches of the U.S. Military and the U.S. Coast Guard.

“From the very beginning the MHS program has been a true partnership between SIG SAUER and the U.S. Army which has resulted in the overwhelming success of the program, and ensuring that the M17 and M18 handguns are entering service, and in the field with our military,” concluded Cohen.

80 Percent Arms Introduces GST-9 Ghost: First Truly Modular 80% Pistol Frame System

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

Garden Grove, CA., (November 15, 2019) – 80 PERCENT ARMS, Inc., the nation’s largest manufacturer of 80% firearms, is proud of our history in challenging the status quo by releasing new products that have revolutionized the 80% lower industry. Today, we are continuing the tradition with the release of our new GST-9 Ghost: the world’s first truly modular 80% pistol frame system compatible with Glock® 19 platform components, as well as our patent-pending modular grips allow for easy conversion between compact and full size. We started by taking a close look at the famously reliable Glock® platform, diligently researched what was missing on the market today, then used our years of expertise manufacturing 80% firearms to develop the most shootable 80% pistol system from the ground up.

Based on extensive research and focus group testing, we also improved ergonomics by designing a contoured grip that improves comfort and helps tame recoil. The undercut trigger guard gives you a higher grip on the frame, thus lowering the bore-axis and reducing muzzle flip for faster, more accurate follow-up shots.

The GST-9 Ghost features several improvements over the time-tested Glock® platform, starting with the mating surface between the slide and frame. Frame rails have been extended three times their normal length for more repeatability, better accuracy, and controlled recoil impulse. Nickel plating improves reliability by reducing friction between moving parts in the harshest conditions, even after liquid lubricants have long since cooked off. 

The GST-9 is centered around one thing: you. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to your mission. That’s why we designed the GST-9 to allow every shooter to build a frame that is tailor-made for them. Whether it’s a compact or full-size grip, a streamlined magwell for carry or a flared magwell for competition, we give you options. Build the frame you want for your mission with the 80 Percent Arms GST-9 Ghost.

ArmyCon: Where Virtual and Reality Meet

Monday, October 7th, 2019

FORT KNOX, Ky. — The U.S. Army is aiming to connect the gaming world to the military characters and equipment featured in many of today’s most popular games during the first-ever ArmyCon at the Army Ten-Miler Expo Park and D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C., Oct. 11-12.

ArmyCon will showcase high tech, warfighting capabilities with interactive displays and demonstrations. Individuals can test their skills as virtual warriors in the Mobile Gaming Semi-Trailer and then meet the real-life Soldiers face-to-face, equipped with all the associated gear and weaponry, in one action-packed area.

Spectators can test out robots, climb inside helicopters, and challenge their hacking skills. They can even get a close-up look at two new pieces of Army tech — the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle — Binocular and the Black Hornet Nano Unmanned Aerial System.

The ENVG-B’s are the Army’s most advanced night vision goggle, providing close combat forces with the capability to observe and maneuver weather conditions during limited visibility and enabling Soldiers to shoot around corners. The Black Hornet is a tiny drone that offers intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support.

“There are so many young people who don’t know what high-tech jobs the Army can offer or what Army life is like,” said Maj. Gen. Frank Muth, U.S. Army Recruiting commanding general. “ArmyCon is a prime opportunity for us to start the conversation about the professional jobs our Soldiers do.”

ArmyCon will feature the two new outreach teams created this year — the Army eSports Team and the Warrior Fitness Team. The esports team will host a “Twitch” gaming tournament inside of the U.S. Army Mobile Gaming Semi-Trailer, which features scorpion chairs and a variety of gaming platforms.

In addition to the new equipment and the gaming trailer, attendees will have a variety of Army assets to experience up-close and personal, including:

-Electric motorcycle
-Talon EOD robot
-Percussion explosive neutralization system
-Portable X-ray
-EOD blast suit
-Cyber Protection Team (demo cyber effects, display geo tagging effects with social media)
-Helicopters
-Stryker

Along with the equipment, attendees can meet Olympians from the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, the Golden Knights Army Parachute Team, Rangers, Special Forces Soldiers, and more.

Hampton Roads Naval Museum Makes Final Preparations Prior to Re-opening

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

By Max Lonzanida, Public Affairs Officer, Hampton Roads Naval Museum

Norfolk, Va. –The gallery of the Hampton Roads Naval Museum will re-open, Oct. 9, following a transformation of more than 4,700 sq. ft. into a new immersive exhibit, The Ten Thousand-Day War at Sea: The US Navy in Vietnam, 1950-1975.

190920-N-TG517-728
NORFOLK, VA. (Sep, 20, 2019) A Vietnamese sampan, captured in 1968 by US Navy riverine forces, along with a diorama featuring a Patrol Boat Riverine gun tub are some of the artifacts that will be on display at a new exhibit at the Hampton Roads Naval Museum.

The exhibit represents the first major renovation of their gallery since 1994. Preparations for the conversion began in April, and this week, with the addition of almost 130 artifacts, the staff is making final preparations to open their doors to the public.

Using the U.S. Navy’s rich historical collections, multi-media presentations, and interactive components, visitors will experience the Navy’s pivotal role in the Vietnam War.

Choosing the right pieces to tell Navy’s Vietnam War story was critical to the exhibit’s creation. To guarantee that the visuals matched the museum’s intent, exhibit specialists collaborated with the Naval History and Heritage Command’s (NHHC) Curator Branch.

“We worked alongside with Hampton Roads Naval Museum staff to make certain we were telling a holistic story,” commented Jeff Bowdoin, Naval History and Heritage Command Curator Branch head. “Many people understand the riverine contributions to the war effort, though we must look beyond those operations. For instance the bullet fragment recovered from the USS Maddox represents an attack on a U.S. Navy destroyer that helped support the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.”

One of the large artifacts visitors will have the opportunity to see is a 25-foot long sampan captured in 1968.

Sampans, flat-bottom boats that plied the waterways of the Mekong Delta transporting people and goods, were sometimes used to transport contraband weapons and supplies to aid the Viet Cong.

In 1968, riverine forces captured a 25-foot long sampan during Operation FLANKSPEED as it transported weapons, among other contraband. The Navy brought the open hulled sampan back to the U.S. and until now, it was in under management of NHHC’s Curator Branch.

Creating a new exhibit about the Vietnam War presented substantial opportunities for Hampton Roads Naval Museum to connect with Navy veterans. The museum recorded interviews with over forty-five Navy veterans of the war.

“Veterans of the Vietnam War did not receive a particularly hospitable homecoming,” said John Pentangelo, Hampton Roads Naval Museum director. “Many Americans wanted to forget the war and military service was not recognized the way it was before or since.”

Pentangelo also stated that the Navy’s contributions to the war are often overlooked in scholarship and popular culture. “While the artifacts were vital to the telling this story, the oral history program that preceded the exhibit fabrication really shaped the exhibit in a dynamic way,” he added, “Navy veterans were allowed to speak for themselves and provide visitors with the opportunity to make meaningful connections to our shared past.”

Hampton Roads Naval Museum will host a private ribbon cutting ceremony October 8 at 6 p.m. Media are invited to attend and should contact max.q.lonzanida@navy.mil for additional details. The exhibit opens to the public on October 9. During the three-year exhibit, The Hampton Roads Naval Museum aims to educate visitors about the U.S. Navy’s role in the Vietnam War.

Century Arms Announces New Canik Sub Compact Pistol

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

DELRAY BEACH, Florida – (October 2, 2019) – Century Arms is proud to introduce the newest addition to the already impressive Canik line of handguns.  The TP9 Elite Sub Compact (SC) is a concealable, lightweight, reliable, double stacked, striker-fired polymer pistol. This pistol comes chambered in 9mm and features a 12 round standard capacity, while still being easily concealed at an impressive 1.45” width and 6.70” overall length.  This pistol capitalizes on all of the amazing features the Canik brand has become known for while adapting to the needs of the discreet firearms owner.

“The demand for a reliable, double stacked, concealable handgun, at a price point the blue-collar American could afford without sacrificing quality or comfort was a challenge the Canik team accepted head-on!  We are proud to say that the TP9 Elite SC is exactly that, a superior handgun,” said Adam Ruonala, Century Arms National Director of Marketing.  “This firearm was designed with the sole intent of being an everyday carry for everyone from the Law Enforcement officer as a back up, to the private citizen who wants the peace of mind in knowing the capacity and functionality of the pistol is top of the line.”

The 3.60” barrel is the optimal length designated by Canik’s trusted engineers to ensure top tier accuracy out of the 4.60” tall TP9 Elite SC.  The weight comes in at a minuscule 24.78 ounces which results in an effortless carry.  The nickel-coated internals results in the smooth functionality that the Canik line has become internationally known for.

The features of the TP9 Elite SC far exceed the basic subcompact details.  The firearm comes standard with a tungsten slide and black frame, micro dot optics ready slide mount allowing co-witness with iron sights, a loaded chamber indicator, ambidextrous slide release, reversible magazine release, white dot phosphorous front sight and black out rear sight for easy low light target acquisition.

The TP9 Elite SC offerings do not stop at the above-mentioned facts. Every pistol also comes standard with a new subcompact holster that has the ability to mount either for an inside or outside the waistband carry. Each pistol comes with a 12 and 15 round magazine. The new Canik designed 15 round magazine features a grip extension module that allows the shooter to operate this firearm as a compact, giving the operator a multi-purpose pistol tunable to an ever-changing day to day landscape. The TP9 Elite SC has an MSRP of $429 and is available now.

Canik has already begun the process of creating a large number of accessories and add-ons that will soon be available to the US market. These additions will be available directly from Canik and will feature the same quality and dependability as the pistols themselves.

5.11 Announces Newest Product Integration and Content Creation Partnership with Ubisoft

Friday, September 27th, 2019

Leading Global Innovator of Purpose-Built Gear Has Produced A Custom Content Video Series Alongside Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint Involvement

Irvine, Calif. (September 27, 2019) — 5.11 Tactical®, the world’s leading innovator of tactical apparel, footwear and outdoor gear, is proud to announce an expanded partnership with Ubisoft® for its upcoming release, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. In addition to once again giving players the opportunity to outfit their characters in 5.11 apparel and gear through in-game character customization options that impact game play, 5.11 has also partnered with Ubisoft on multiple custom content videos surrounding the Ghost Recon Breakpoint launch.

5.11’s 2016 product integration in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands initiated the connection between the worlds of gaming and real-life tactical experiences by providing gamers with the same 5.11 purpose-built products that are used by tactical professionals every day. 5.11 continued their partnership with Ubisoft in 2018 appearing in the video game Far Cry 5. Earlier this year, 5.11’s product integration in The Division 2 was the third time the two brands partnered together in that capacity and the first time the two brands created custom content utilizing 5.11 brand ambassador Tim Kennedy in The Real Endgame Weapons Of The Division 2. 5.11’s appearance in this Fall’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint marks the fourth collaboration effort between Ubisoft and 5.11 and an even more extensive content creation partnership between the two brands.

In addition to providing tactical apparel and gear for all four of the recently launched videos in the Ubisoft Squad Up video series featuring Lil Wayne directed by David Leitch, 5.11 debuted today its own series of videos called The Ghost Recon Breakpoint Challenge – utilizing four real special forces soldiers in scenarios that occur within the Ghost Recon Breakpoint video game. Lisa Master Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserve, Mike Glover of Fieldcraft Survival and former 20-year Green Beret, Dan Edwards, retired 25-year special operations officer, and Lee Harvey, retired Major in the United States Army Special Forces round out the group of survivalists who put the reality of Ghost Recon Breakpoint to the test.

“The expansion of our partnership with Ubisoft and the Ghost Recon Series of games has been outstanding for the 5.11 brand,” said 5.11’s Chief Marketing Officer, Debra Radcliff. “The functionality of our purpose-built products is an authentic fit in Ghost Recon Breakpoint as one of the most realistic military video games of all time. Collaborating on the joint custom content projects has been a natural progression for the partnership and we’re excited to be releasing the videos we’ve worked on together.”

5.11’s innovative tactical apparel and gear designed for life’s most demanding missions provides added functionality to the players in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Players will have access to the highest levels of product innovation and tactical functionality through 5.11’s product offering, and just as in The Division 2, select 5.11 products will affect game play. In real world meets virtual reality, the better gear you’re carrying, the better you’re performing. The assortment of 5.11 products featured in Ghost Recon Breakpoint includes: RUSH12™ Backpack, RUSH24™ Backpack, RUSH72™ Backpack, All Hazards Backpack, Apex™ Pant, TacLite® Plate Carrier, AMP24™, Tac-Tec™ Plate Carrier, Expedition Long Sleeve Shirt, Ascension Long Sleeve Shirt, and a variety of accessories. To view and purchase the product available in the game, please visit 5.11Tactical.com.

“We’ve enjoyed expanding our partnership with 5.11 over the past few years,” said Adam Novickas, Vice President of Marketing at Ubisoft. “5.11’s gear is perfectly placed within Ghost Recon Breakpoint and their custom content partnership adds a level of authenticity to the game that we truly value.”

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a military shooter set in a diverse and hostile open world entirely playable solo or in up to four-player co-op. Players will discover Auroa, a mysterious island where the most technically advanced facilities meet wild and untamed nature. Home to drone creators, tech giant Skell Technology, Auroa has fallen into the wrong hands and all contact has been lost. 
 
The Wolves, a lethal ex–US Military unit of former Ghosts gone rogue, have taken over the island. Led by Nomad’s ex-brother-in-arms, Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, portrayed by Jon Bernthal, they have reprogrammed Skell’s drones into killing machines and are ready to use them, no matter the casualties. Nomad and the Ghosts are sent in on a recon mission, but their helicopters are shot down. Injured, without support, and hunted down, players will live an intense military experience as they fight to survive, take down the Wolves and regain control of Auroa.
 
Steep slopes, accumulating injuries, and fatigue are new challenges for players to tackle as they test their survival skills in the varied terrains of Auroa. To overcome adversity, players will enjoy total freedom to accomplish their missions and have plenty of tactical options and tools at their disposal, including a set of new military features. They will be able to carry enemies and teammates’ bodies, blend into their environment with prone camo and set up camp with teammates in the bivouac to manage equipment, change classes, and fine-tune their strategies.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available for purchase on October 4, 2019. For more information on 5.11 and the latest updates on 5.11’s Ubisoft Ghost Recon Breakpoint partnership, please follow 5.11 @511Tactical.

The New Broco Rapid Deploy Ballistic Protection Sport Backpack Armor Plate Protection Available for Everyone — Now at Special Pre-Holiday Pricing

Saturday, September 21st, 2019

Broco Rankin

ONTARIO, Calif., Sept. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Armor plate protection is now available for everyone at pre-holiday promotional pricing. Broco, Inc.’s new Rapid Deploy Ballistic Protection Sport Backpack looks like an ordinary backpack except this one has two hidden body armor plates – one in the back and another that deploys in seconds to cover the front – to provide ballistic protection in case of an emergency.

The Broco Rapid Deploy Ballistic Protection Sport Backpack is designed for civilians, including teachers, students, parents, coaches, family and friends, as well as law enforcement and military. It is lightweight yet strong and deploys quickly. The removable soft armor plates are NIJ 0101.06 certified level IIIA (handgun) and weigh 1.1 lbs. each. Stronger hard armor plates that are NIJ certified level III (rifle) and weighing 3.3 lbs. each also are available for purchase.

Broco Rankin

“We wanted to deliver something new to the bulletproof backpack market that would benefit everyone,” said Richard Ferry, president of Broco Rankin. “The Broco backpack does that with two armor plates instead of just one. We made it lightweight and strong for everyday people based on our experience with the tactical tools and gear we provide to first responders.”

The rapid deploy feature is quick and easy. In the event of an emergency, pull the quick release cord on the shoulder strap to separate the two compartments and pull one over the head. The result is bulletproof protection over vital body parts on both front and back. The civilian model is available in blue, gray, maroon or black. The tactical model comes in tan or black with a molle system or laser cut, and can be ordered without the Broco logo for more discrete protection.

“We initially created the Rapid Deploy Backpack for our first responder and military customers. Then we decided that it was versatile enough to protect anyone in a public place,” concluded Ferry.

Broco Tactical is part of the Broco Rankin family of companies based in Ontario, California. In addition to tactical and forced entry products, Broco, Inc. designs and manufactures underwater cutting and welding equipment, and industrial exothermic Broco Rankin cutting and welding systems. Rankin Hardfacing, PMA Protective Metal Alloys, and Chamberlain Security are part of Rankin Industries which designs and manufactures buildup, hardfacing and specialty nickel alloy products.

Mission First Tactical (MFT) Introduces Battlelink Extreme Duty Minimalist Stock

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

The Battlelink Extreme Duty Minimalist Stock is capable of withstanding long term abuse delivered by larger caliber firearms while remaining nimble.

Horsham, Pa. (September 2019) – Mission First Tactical, LLC (MFT™), a leader in USA-made rifle/carbine accessories, is proud to introduce the Battlelink Extreme Duty Minimalist Stock. Building on its popular minimalist platform, MFT recognized the need for a more robust stock capable of withstanding long-term abuse delivered by larger caliber firearms, such as tactical shotguns of 12 gauge or 7.62X51 AR-10, while remaining nimble enough for use on a 5.56.

The Battlelink Extreme Duty Minimalist Stock is a slide-on replacement for a collapsible buttstock. The angled, non-slip, rubberized removable buttpad allows for faster presentation, even when donning body armor. It has multiple sling slots with single point mount points, with the Quick Detach Sling mounting point positioned in the rear.

Galco Gunleather – Introducing The New StukOn-U Pocket Holster For Subcompact Autos

Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

Galco Gunleather is excited to introduce additional StukOn-U pocket holster fits for subcompact autos from Colt, Kahr, Kel-Tec, Kimber, Ruger, S&W, Taurus and others!

The StukOn-U builds on Galco’s decades of experience with pocket holsters. Its Gripper Shell™ exterior helps the holster grab the inside of the pocket, while the closed-cell foam substrate gives the holster shape and sturdiness. Finally, a layer of 420 denier packcloth lines the holster to both protect the handgun and smooth the draw.

The ambidextrous StukOn-U is designed for front pocket carry in pants or a jacket. It keeps the firearm in the same general position so the grip can be quickly located during draw, conceals the shape of the gun so that its outline is not printed through the pants, and allows one-handed release of gun from both pocket and holster, especially when using a “hooking” draw technique to catch the trigger-guard edge of the holster on the pocket as the handgun is released. The holster’s Gripper Shell surface assists in keeping the holster in the pocket during the draw.

The StukOn-U helps accomplish multiple concealed carry tasks with excellent discretion – and at the very reasonable retail price of $27!

Shield Arms Announces S15 Magazine Pre-Order for Glock 46 & 48

Monday, September 16th, 2019

Bigfork, MT, September 16, 2019 – Shield Arms (shieldarms.com) is pleased to announce the pre-order launch for our S15 magazine, a flush-fitting 15 round magazine compatible with the Glock® 43X and Glock® 48!

The S15 is a made in the USA double stack steel magazine that provides a 50% increase in carry capacity over the OEM Glock® 43X/48 magazine in the same overall footprint, without sacrificing the legendary reliability that Glock® is known for.

For a limited time we are accepting pre-orders on the S15, as well as a +5 extension for the S15, and an aluminum magazine catch for the Glock® 43X/48, with combo packs available for added value.

shieldarms.com/magazines

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions we’ve had regarding the magazine.

Is it reliable?

Yes! It should be noted that from the handmade prototypes we made in February and March, through the rounds of pre-production samples, to the final geometry we have today, we have never had a single failure to feed or eject. If the mag fit, it functioned, flawlessly.

What took so long?

While it always takes time to create tooling, what slowed us down is that to our knowledge, this magazine geometry has never been done before, so it took a little extra time for our magazine manufacturer to dial everything in.

Even small adjustments to a magazine design take time to change in tooling and test, and we were unwilling to compromise and release the magazine before it was ready. This is not just a range toy.

When will pre-orders ship?

We expect to begin shipping pre-orders in October; pre-orders will ship in the order they are received.

Do I need a metal mag catch since the magazine is made out of steel?

That depends on the shooter. We are offering an anodized aluminum mag catch for higher volume shooters who are concerned that the steel magazine will wear down the OEM polymer catch. It should be noted that our test guns have OEM mag catches, and we haven’t noticed any reliability issues yet. However, if you shoot enough, there is a possibility of accelerated wear on the catch, so if this is a concern, swap it out.
