    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.

    Magpul Developed a 60-Round Quad Magazine

    Wednesday, April 5th, 2017


    Quad Mag Prototype, 60-Round Capacity 2009

    Shortly after the introduction of the original PMAG, Magpul began working on increased capacity solutions. The “Quad” or “Coffin” mag concept never delivered the reliability in rough handling and adverse conditions that they require from their magazine products, and so the design never made it into production. Lessons learned during this program eventually fed into the D-60 program.

    Springfield Armory – Night Of The Saint

    Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

    I would like to start this off by reminding the readership that Springfield Armory’s SAINT is an AR-15 with BCM furniture, including an exclusive polymer forend, and a mid-length gas system.

    Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, somehow SA has translated this concept into a Survivor meets Top Shot kinda thing with an all-woman cast. Here’s SA’s synopsis:

    You will need to be so much more than a good shot. And your physical strength will only get you so far. It all comes down to mindset. Are you ready for the challenge? Six athletic and adventurous women agreed to go to a mountain in Wyoming. In the end, they learn that their biggest competition isn’t the person to their left or right, but rather their biggest competitor is themselves.

    Cobalt Kinetics To Release CARS (Cobalt Advantage Reloading System) In Limited “Beta” Test

    Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

    597420e3-e2cb-4818-812c-53da12c10943

    ST GEORGE, Utah, March 14 – Cobalt Kinetics, a manufacturer of premium performance and precision engineered rifles, today announces plans to open their CARS (Cobalt Advantage Reloading System) platform to the public as a limited beta test through select dealers. The highly anticipated release of the CARS is available as an upgrade package on the following Cobalt Kinetics rifle models: BAMF, Eclipse, Edge, Team, Team Stage 2.

    The limited beta test will run through the end of May. The upgraded functionality of the “beta” CARS will cost $800 as a premium option when ordering. Additionally, Cobalt is extending continued warranty and support and any upgrades or improvements to the rifles purchased on this initial beta release.

    Skylar Stewart, Vice President of Cobalt Kinetics said, “After a year of strenuous development and testing, we are ready to release the CARS functionality to select group of shooters for testing. We are confident with the engineering and performance and want to get feedback from enthusiasts, helping us put the final polish on the system.”

    The CARS rifle autonomously drops an empty magazine and loads the chamber once an ammunition supply is present. When using a CARS equipped rifle, the user is only required to pull the trigger, and introduce a fresh magazine as ammunition becomes exhausted. More time and attention can be spent on target acquisition and engagement, allowing for faster and more accurate shooting. The CARS retains the standard operation of the AR-15 platform; the bolt catch and magazine release are still present and operational.

    The CARS auto-drop feature can be selectively deactivated to retain an empty magazine. CARS auto-load is always active and operational; the gun will chamber ammo from a fresh magazine once it is inserted and seated. CARS functionality works with most AR-15 magazines.

    The components used in the construction of the CARS system are made from D2 and S7 tool steel and coated in nickel-Teflon. This process produces parts that resist wearing while also reducing the need for lubrication.

    CARS is in its 5th revision since inception; reflecting dozens of improvements and refinements by their engineers. The 5th revision was extensively tested, with over 15,000 rounds expended during development and was vetted by numerous experts in the industry.

    Vickers Guide: 1911 Reprint

    Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

    Dustjacket_Front

    The original Vickers Guide: 1911 proved to be popular enough that it went out of print in 5 months, which prompted Mott Lake Publishing to produce a reprint, which is expected to start shipping May 15th, 2017.

    www.vickersguide.com/1911

    They’re not just reprinting the book as an exact copy, however, as they’re giving fans the opportunity to pick the new cover of the book from one of the three 1911 models below (write ins are also an option on the survey page):

    SHOT Show 17 – SERBU Firearms GB-22

    Saturday, January 21st, 2017

    IMG_0087

    This is the SERBU GB-22, a single shot, open bolt .22 pistol designed to be extremely simple to build, even with basic handtools, as necessity or availability of materials and tools dictates. Because it’s so basic, it also lends itself to as much modification as the builder deems appropriate. For example, the GB-22 doesn’t have sights as part of its standard design, but a creative sort can include irons in the design, or as is the case in the model above, create a mounting platform for an electro-optic. In case you were wondering, the ‘GB’ in GB-22 stands for ‘Gun Buyback’, as creator Mark Serbu has pretty much stated that because of the simple design the GB-22 can be built up quick and cheap and used to game a gun buyback program.

    IMG_0083

    The plans are available right now on SERBU’s site for a paltry $12 (link here). If you feel you’re not mechanically-inclined enough to take advantage of the plans, then you’ll have to wait until SERBU receives BAFTE approval for a built kit.

    SHOT Show 2017 – Kel-Tec

    Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

    I always like to visit the Kel-Tec booth early because they always have something new (and because they release a new deck of playing cards every year which tend to run out fast).

    For this year, Kel-Tec has two new models of their RDB, and one new model of the KSG.

    KSG-25

    IMG_4424

    Forgive the image orientation, but the KSG–25 is long, 38 inches long to be exact. The KSG-25 Sports a 30.5 inch barrel, with a standard capacity of 24+1 2.75 inch shells, hence the name. It weighs a hefty 9.25 lbs. unloaded, and roughly 11.5 lbs. when loaded. This particular model will come complete with Magpul MBUS front and rear sites, and a Magpul RVG vertical grip, along with a heat shield to cover the extended barrel. Kel-Tec states The KSG–25 will see a limited release third quarter of this year, provided demand is high enough.

    RDB Tactical

    IMG_4427

    The RDB Tactical is a variation of the RDB, featuring a two position collapsible stock, as well as an M-LOK forend designed specifically for the rifle. The rep told me the rifle was so new, they didn’t have time to print out a sales card for it.

    RDB Survival

    IMG_4428

    The RDB Survival is a minimalist profile variant of the RDB designed for field carry. Like the tactical, it features a 16 inch barrel, although this one is pencil profile to keep the weight down. The Survival model has an overall length of 26.1 inches, with a weight of 5 pounds, and comes with integrated iron sites, and can except any standard AR magazines. The survival also features the same two positions stock as the tactical model, providing an additional 1.5 inches of stock length for the shooter.

    Bullet vs Prince Rupert’s Drop at 150,000 fps

    Friday, December 30th, 2016

    YouTube Channel ‘Smarter Every Day‘ made up a video testing whether a .22 bullet was capable of shattering a Prince Rupert’s Drop, and recorded it a 150,000 fps using a high-speed camera.

    Spoiler: the drop breaks, but it’s more to do with the resulting vibration caused by the bullet hitting the drop rather than the actual impact from the bullet.

    Interesting, ain’t it?

    A3 Tactical – Double Picatinny Clamp

    Thursday, December 15th, 2016

    image1

    This little device is A3 Tactical’s Double Picatinny Clamp. As the name implies, the Double Picatinny Clamp is designed to mount one Picatinny rail to another, providing, as A3 states, “virtually limitless possibilities… only limited by your imagination” in regards to accessories, guns, and gear featuring Picatinny-spec rails, at least. It’s CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, and its design prevents fore/aft movement of the rails, as well as preventing marring of your rails thanks to dowels that are machined slightly taller than the industry-standard Picatinny groove.

    Of course, A3’s Double Picatinny Clamp does also give you the option to attach entire firearms to one another, creating combinations such as this:

    Bullets vs Propeller In Slow Motion

    Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

    The Slo Mo Guys, in association with (and sponsorship from) EA, produced a video where they recorded slow motion footage of a machine gun and propeller setup. They first recorded footage where the synchronization gear was active, a mechanism which timed a plane-mounted machine gun to fire in-between the arc of a propeller’s blades, making plane-mounted machine guns viable during the Great War. The second bit of footage has the synchronization gear turned off, and it resulted in 4 hits to the propeller blades.

    Neat stuff.

    SIG SAUER Introduces the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol

    Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

    1911_max_bb_gun_left

    Newington, NH (November 16, 2016) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol. Modeled after the 1911 Max centerfire pistol designed by World Speed Shooting Champion and Team SIG Captain, Max Michel, Jr., this CO2-powered, semi-automatic 1911-style BB pistol is a fun and useful training tool for shooters of all skill levels – from beginners to experts.

    “When it comes to shooting, consistent training is invaluable, whether you are a member of law enforcement, the military or are a responsible citizen carrying to protect your family,” said Max Michel, Jr., captain of Team SIG. “Despite this, many people don’t have the time, opportunity or finances to train as much as they should. The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol gives you the flexibility to train anywhere, anytime with measurable results. Dry fire training is always recommended, but can be boring and sometimes misleading. This is a great way for those who typically shoot a 1911-style pistol to work on accuracy, speed and drawing from concealment.”

    The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol fits in current 1911 holster systems and has the same weight and controls of a traditional 1911 firearm. It features a full-metal slide and frame with realistic blowback action of the metal slide. The 16-round magazine holds 4.5mm steel BBs and the trigger has the same styling and shape as the 1911 Max firearm. There is also a cam lever CO2 loading port for easy and quick loading of the 12gr CO2 cartridges. The .177 caliber 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol shoots up to 410 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.

    The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol also gives newer shooters the ability to learn firearm safety and basic fundamentals in a controlled, comfortable, quiet, and safe environment. It removes the intimidation factor of the loud bang and recoil, leaving the newer shooter more confident and with a much better understanding of traditional firearms and their safe use.

    “I’m a 10-year Army veteran and have been a pro shooter for nearly 20 years, and I enjoy shooting this BB pistol because it’s just incredibly fun,” said Michel. “Regardless of your shooting ability, practice with this BB pistol is a really enjoyable and affordable way to improve your skills. I love shooting with my kids and this provides a platform for me to teach them safely while building their confidence. In the next few years as they continue to progress into more traditional firearms, they will be much better prepared because of the training they are receiving with the 1911 Max Michel BB pistol.”

    MSRP: $110.99

    Batou’s Shotgun Is A Six12

    Monday, November 14th, 2016

    img_4138

    This pic was sent over to me by SSD’s Admin, so I don’t know the origin. What I can say is, based on it being a pic of “Batou’s Shotgun”, it’s obviously a prop from the upcoming (and quite honestly craptastic-looking) Ghost in the Shell movie. It also happens to be a duded up Crye Precision Six12 rotary drum bullpup 12 gauge shotgun, which to be fair is a pretty futuristic-looking piece.

    Edit: Google image search came up with this page: beagle-voyage.com/movie-ghost-in-the-shell-movie-props-2016.

    There’s a few other prop weapons from the movie as well.
