SilencerCo Releases First-Ever 50-State-Legal Suppressed Muzzleloader

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

IMG_1004

WEST VALLEY CITY, UT – September 19, 2017 – For the first time since the National Firearms Act (NFA) was created in 1934, civilians can enjoy suppressed shooting in all 50 states with SilencerCo’s latest innovation: the integrally suppressed Maxim 50 muzzleloader. In addition, this product can be purchased right now on the web with no regulation (no 4473, no tax stamp, no photographs or fingerprints) at store.silencerco.com and be shipped immediately to the purchaser with few exceptions*.

IMG_1006

Residents in the 42 states that allow civilian ownership of silencers have to pay a $200 tax, fill out forms, send in photos, submit to fingerprinting, and wait months for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to review their forms and check their backgrounds—just to acquire an inherently-harmless product. With all the hoops to jump through, it’s no surprise that many Americans have difficulty committing the time or money it takes to save their hearing. Citizens may have had their Second Amendment rights suppressed, but innovation cannot be silenced.

IMG_1005

With the invention of the Maxim 50, SilencerCo has created a product that is 100% legal for civilian ownership in all 50 states while providing hearing-saving suppression at a reasonable price point. How is this possible? By paying very close attention to the law.

IMG_1007

The BATFE defines a silencer as a “device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a portable firearm . . .” By that definition, a silencer is only a silencer if it can attach to a firearm. The Maxim 50 is built on the base of a Traditions™ Vortek Strikerfire Muzzleloader. For those who know muzzleloaders, you’ll also know that they are not considered firearms by the BATFE but are instead antique firearms, a definition and difference that is very distinct. Because of this, a moderator that is permanently affixed to a muzzleloader is not legally defined as a silencer, since it does not attach to a firearm. With this realization, the Maxim 50 was born.

IMG_1003

“It took a lot of creativity to arrive at this solution,” said Josh Waldron, SilencerCo CEO and Co-Founder. “We have been working on this product for three years, with most of that time spent waiting on a determination from the Technology Branch of the BATFE as to how this product would be classified. As soon as we received official word that it wouldn’t be considered or regulated as a silencer, we got to work on bringing the Maxim 50 to customers across the country.”

SilencerCo expects the Maxim 50 to be a hit not only with the NFA-loving crowd, but also with hobbyists and hunters. In many states, muzzleloader hunting begins days (sometimes weeks) before standard rifle season, giving hunters using this platform an edge. But this edge does come with caveats – antique firearms are usually loud, have lots of recoil, and the shooter has to battle the thick cloud of black powder smoke billowing from the barrel as they try to see if their shot connected with their game. The Maxim 50 solves all of the issues experienced by muzzleloader shooters while also drastically reducing the resulting smoke by more than two-thirds, allowing hunters to see the location of their shot and track their game.

SilencerCo is honored to finally be able to bring suppressed shooting to its customers across the country, especially in states such as California, Illinois, and New York, where civilian ownership of silencers is not currently allowed.

Polymer80 – Announcing The PF940v2 Coming This FALL!

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Polymer80, Inc. bolsters their product line with a long-awaited update.

Tacoma, WA – July 27th, 2017- Polymer80, the leading developer and manufacturer of 80% polymer AR and pistol products has unveiled the PF940v2™, the next generation update to their best-selling PF940v1™ Glock®-compatible 80% pistol frame.

“We have learned quite a bit since the release of the v1 frame.” said Alex Brodsky, VP of Marketing at Polymer80. “The PF940C™ compact frame, for example, was designed with significantly improved ergonomics and aftermarket features. Since the compact’s release, an overwhelming majority of our customers and dealers have asked that we update the original standard size frame with similar features.”

The PF940v2™ is compatible with components for 3-pin: 9mm G17, 34, 17L; .40S&W G22, 35, 24; and .357Sig G31.

Some of the major changes seen in PF940v2™ include a slimmer grip that is available with an aggressive texture or blank ReadyMod™ style, a double undercut on the trigger guard, and a stainless steel rear rail module, which has been the most requested feature. The PF940v2™ comes with a Picatinny/STANAG compliant accessory rail that features an embedded blank serialization plate. Much like its predecessor, the PF940v2™ kit includes a finishing jig, drill bits, and an end mill, which allows the end-user to successfully convert the frame into a functioning firearm in the privacy of their home.

“We’ve been conducting PF940v2™ range tests for two months now,” said Mike Guttridge, VP of Product. “The aftermarket product compatibility tests have been concluded as well, and we feel confident to start the initial production. We hope to bring the PF940v2™ frame kit to market sometime in the fall.”

What is an 80% Receiver?

An 80% Receiver is a partially completed piece of material that requires special tooling and skills to be completed and considered a firearm. Unlike a firearm receiver it is not required to be transferred through a Federal Firearms Licensed holder (FFL).

SwitchGrip – GripKnife

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

In my mind, the name GripKnife conjures images of Solid Snake’s CQC knife-in-support-hand style of weapon manipulation.

However, the GripKnife is actually a forend grip that mounts to a standard Picatinny rail, which houses a knife intended for hand-to-hand fighting. The creators of the Grip Knife state it’s designed for “…military-style carbines in close-quarter situations such as urban engagements, while inside military vehicles, or in any other situation where space is confined, the element of surprise is necessary, or the likelihood of hand-to-hand combat is great.”, and is made of “…advanced materials usually reserved for spaceships and surgical equipment.” The knife detaches from the grip by pressing a thumb-activated, rearward button on the base of the mount, for quick operation of use.

G2 Research 12ga RIP Round

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

World’s Deadliest 12 Gauge Round

Winder, GA, August 9, 2017, G2 Research’s NEW extreme performance self-defense 12 gauge round.

In development for over three years by G2 Research this new high-performance 12 gauge self-defense round will hit the market this Fall. The all brass 303-grain individually machined CNC slug is designed for incredible performance against soft targets.

First of all the G2 slug is 0.725-inch in diameter (about a quarter inch larger than a .50 cal. Bullet). When combined with the proven G2 Research R.I.P. technology which releases six trocars (large metal petals) into the target the result is incredible and instant devastation.

Upon impact the six trocars will open, detach and independently spread through the target some 6-inches wide delivering 9-11 inches of penetration resulting in massive damage and shock. The .70 caliber base of the slug will continue forward for another 5-6 inches.

Recoil is greatly reduced due to the lightweight all brass 303 grain slug.

The $49.99 price for five-rounds is painful but this is not intended for shooting at tin cans and cinder blocks. The typical scenario is the average person will go to the range and launch a round or two at a target of some type and load the remainder into their gun for the time should the need arise.

Mike Nickerson, G2’s marketing director says–“This 12 gauge round is very specific in its design and mission; that of a person defending his life and/or that of his family. The real question is how much value we put on put on our own life or that of those we are protecting.”

Specifications:

  • 12 gauge
  • 0.725-inch diameter 303 grain all brass precision CNC machined slug
  • 1430 FPS velocity depending on barrel length, etc.
  • Effective performance design range 0-10 yards
  • MSRP $49.99 box of five
  • IMPORTANT NOTES: This round is designed for self-defense only and has a true effective performance expansion range of 10 yards. Several reasons for this: Much beyond that range the slug will begin to yaw which can affect correct strike angle for it to open as designed. Beyond the design distance of 10 yards it will still do massive damage however.

    Second, it is not designed to be used for hunting, sporting or barrier penetration–it is designed for self-defense. Self-defense means just that and it is difficult to convince a jury that self-defense much past 30 feet really is self-defense.

    Will it penetrate hard objects such as doors, walls, etc.? Of course but it may not expand as designed and, shooting through doors and walls presents a difficult legal case of self-defense in court.

    This round must NOT be fired in guns with rifling, compensators, chokes or modified barrel cylinders, etc. The only type of barrel safely used is a modern smooth bore riot type shotgun barrel.

    SIG SAUER Issues Voluntary Upgrade Of P320 Pistol

    Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

    P320 pistol meets requirements for industry and government safety standards;
    performance enhancements optimize function, safety, and reliability.

    Newington, NH (August 8, 2017) – The P320 meets U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

    The design of the SIG SAUER P320 overcomes the most significant safety concern in striker-fired pistols today: the practice of pressing the trigger for disassembly. This can be performed with a round in the chamber which has resulted in numerous incidents of property damage, physical injury, and death. The disassembly process of the P320, however, uses a take-down lever rather than pressing the trigger, eliminating the possibility of discharge during the disassembly process.

    Recent events indicate that dropping the P320 beyond U.S. standards for safety may cause an unintentional discharge.

    As a result of input from law enforcement, government and military customers, SIG has developed a number of enhancements in function, reliability, and overall safety including drop performance. SIG SAUER is offering these enhancements to its customers. Details of this program will be available at sigsauer.com on Monday, August 14, 2017.

    The M17 variant of the P320, selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), is not affected by the Voluntary Upgrade.

    “SIG SAUER is committed to our approach on innovation, optimization, and performance, ensuring we produce the finest possible products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Durability, reliability and safety, as well as end-user confidence in the SIG SAUER brand are the priorities for our team.”

    SIG SAUER Reaffirms Safety of P320 Pistol

    Friday, August 4th, 2017

    Striker-fired pistol exceeds safety standards of ANSI/SAAMI® and U.S. military testing

    Newington, NH (August 4, 2017) – In response to social media rumors questioning the safety of the P320 pistol, a variant of which was selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), SIG SAUER, Inc. has full confidence in the reliability, durability and safety of its striker-fired handgun platform. There have been zero (0) reported drop-related P320 incidents in the U.S. commercial market, with hundreds of thousands of guns delivered to date.

    The P320 meets and exceeds all U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

    All SIG SAUER pistols incorporate effective mechanical safeties to ensure they only fire when the trigger is pressed. However, like any mechanical device, exposure to acute conditions (e.g. shock, vibration, heavy or repeated drops) may have a negative effect on these safety mechanisms and cause them to not work as designed. This language is common to owner’s manuals of major handgun manufacturers.

    As a result, individual attempts to perform drop tests outside of professionally controlled environments should not be attempted.

    “SIG SAUER is committed to producing only the finest products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Safety and reliability have been and always will be paramount to the SIG SAUER brand.”

    DP-12 Tactical Pen

    Monday, April 17th, 2017

    DP-12 Pen

    The DP-12 is a double-barrel pump-action 12 gauge shotgun with a unique firing mechanism; after each pump, pulling the trigger twice fires both barrels one after the other. So, in a way, you can say the DP-12 is kind of a hybrid pump/semi-auto shotgun.

    Standard Manufacturing, the makers of the DP-12, have just released a tactical pen with DP-12 branding. It features an aircraft grade aluminum body, with a integral hardened steel glass breaking tool/self-defense device, and a pocket clip. The pen has the DP-12 logo on the body, and refills with standard ink cartridges. I can’t help but feel there’s a missed opportunity here. They really should have made the pen with a double point, or something.
