Bolt Action Pistol Builder Kits From Black Collar Arms

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

Austin, TX (March 20, 2019) — Black Collar Arms is in production! Our Remington 700 short action-compatible Pork Sword Chassis will be shipping to customers next month. In the meantime we’re taking pre-orders (which, for a couple more weeks only, will come with a free Warfighter Tobacco cigar!) and have now made it even easier for our customers:

Announcing the Pork Sword Chassis Builder Kit!

Intended to provide most of the critical components for your pistol build project, we’ve bundled our 7075 aluminum chassis and 4-slot FARend with an SB Tactical FS1913 pistol brace and the pistol-length barrel of your choice. Then we’ve thrown in one of the best grips available for this size firearm, the ERGO Swift Grip, at no charge.

With factory stripped actions starting at around $300 and magazines around $28, a complete Pork Sword Chassis pistol is possible for just under a thousand dollars.

Announcing straightforward payment plans!

Our $299.99 chassis and $125-$160 barrels are a heck of a deal, but we aren’t stopping at awesome prices. For all of our Builder Kits (and many future items) our customers now have the ability to put 33% down and pay the balance over the next two months. No fees or interest or anything silly like that.

Announcing pistol-length barrels for the Remington 700!

Off-the-shelf shorty barrels for the R700 aren’t easy to find, so we’ve done the hard work for you. We’re proud to offer 300 BLK, .458 SOCOM, and .308 Win barrels in lengths from 6.5 inches to 12.5 inches and starting at just $125!

Quality is top notch with clean threads, square shoulders, 41V50 construction, and a really slick lock nut system. Most Remington 700 barrels must be installed professionally, but thanks to the Savage-style lock nut on these bad boys you can install at home with just a few readily-available tools. Heck, it allows caliber changes in about 15 minutes. All while retaining better-than-factory accuracy in most cases.

XTech Tactical Joins Front Lines with Commufornia Special

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

February 28th, 2019 – Mesa, AZ
XTech Tactical, a rapidly growing innovative firearms accessory manufacture, is now shipping its MAG47 10/30 (MSRP $29.95) as its introduction of the “Commufornia Special” magazine line. The MAG47, which has widely been established as the greatest US Made AK Magazine, is now available for those in states that currently do not permit standard capacity magazines.

The MAG47 10/30, just like the MAG47 features:

-Stainless steel reinforced feed lips and locking lugs
-Stainless steel spring
-Tool free disassembly and reassembly
-Industry leading polymer
-Waffle and tread pattern to ease in extraction and insertion
-Counts as 3 922r components
-MADE IN USA

The MAG47 10/30 will not function if its blocker is removed due to its reduced spring, and the magazine is only marked as a 10-round magazine. Rebuild kits will be available from the company should users relocate to free states or their local laws change to permit standard capacity magazines.

The company will donate $1 per “Commufornia Special” magazine from its website for the life of the “Commufornia Special” line. This donation will go towards efforts that protect the inherent Constitutional rights of all Americans. XTech Tactical has selected Gun Owners of America (GOA) as the recipient of this donation. The magazines will also ship with a $5 off annual membership offer to Gun Owners of America.

“XTech Tactical has historically chosen to not consider producing any state compliant products. Our rational has been that such products quiet those in restrictive states. We hope that the message of the “Commufornia Special” line will unify, educate, and assist those in restrictive states to fight for the rights of all Americans. This is our way of joining the front line of the fight! We are excited to work with the team at Gun Owners of America and encourage other manufactures to consider similar partnerships with organizations fighting to retain our rights”, stated Jeremy Deadman, XTech Tactical’s Director of Sales and Marketing.

Dealers can contact dealers@xtechtactical.com or contact Zanders Sporting Goods.

FLUX Defense – FLUX Glock Pistol Brace

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Pistols braces are the current ‘in’ thing for firearms, so it’s no surprise that someone’s released one specific for one of the most popular handgun brands on the market. That someone is FLUX Defense, with their FLUX pistol brace for Glocks. Two models are currently on offer: a G17 and a G19 model; both are compatible with other Glocks that share the same frame size (ex: 22, 34, etc. for the G17 model, and 23 and 32 for the G19 model).

The FLUX brace is made of a high-strength, impact-resistant polymer and chromoly steel components, and features an auto deploy system which springs the brace out with the push of a button for rapid deployment.

In addition to the brace, FLUX Defense is also offering an IWB/OWB holster designed specifically to work with the brace.

The FLUX Brace G17 model is currently available for purchase, while the G19 model is up for pre-order, and is expected to ship by late March.

ioscribe – 3D printed Banana Standard Pistol

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

Youtuber ioscribe shows off a fully-functioning 3D-printed Glock-pattern frame. The frame, called the Banana Standard, was printed out of PLA at 0.1mm layer heights, and is fully functional, except for an issue with the slide and recoil spring being too heavy to function when used in conjunction with a suppressor.

You can check out more of the Banana Standard, including some earlier iterations, and a 3D-printed VZ61 Skorpion frame, on ioscribe’s channel – www.youtube.com/channel/UCHdVwKz3nA_gaYXL9cEME0A

X Products – XCM-9 Modular 9mm Pistol Drum Magazine

Monday, January 28th, 2019

Conceptually, this is actually a pretty neat product. The XCM-9 is a 9mm drum magazine with a degree of modularity that allows it to be compatible with a variety of popular 9mm double-stack pistols on the market, such as those manufactured by Glock and Smith & Wesson, among others. The ‘magazine tower’ is the component that swaps out, and not only allows for magazine compatibility between various 9mm pistols, but also comes in different tower heights to accommodate for compact and full size profile grips. The total capacity for the XCM-9 is variable, depending on the tower used on the mag, but it maxes out at 69 rounds. At 5″ in diameter, and sure to be fairly hefty fully loaded, it might be a bit bulky for use with a pistol, if not making for a fun day at the range. However, it seems like it could be a decent companion to a compatible pistol caliber carbine.

Available for pre-order now direct from X Products, with a planed launch date within March 2019.

Forgotten Weapons – Shooting the H&K MP5K Operational Briefcase

Monday, January 7th, 2019

The Operational Briefcase is a method developed by H&K for security personnel to discretely carry a sub gun in business and executive environments. Ian of Forgotten Weapons not only demonstrates live fire of one of these briefcase firearms, but also briefly shows off an earlier model case that was a bit less discreet than the later/more modern ‘trigger handle’ version.

Standard Manufacturing – S333 Volleyfire

Saturday, January 5th, 2019

It’s SHOT month, so new firearms are filling up the news feed, but occasionally you see a gun that is so unique compared to the contemporary affair that you can’t help but give it notice. Standard Manufacturing’s S333 Voleyfire happens to be that gun. The S333 is a double-barrel, double-action revolver with a steel cylinder that holds 8 rounds of .22 Win Mag. The twin hammers are concealed within the aluminum frame, and the trigger consists of an enlongated bow sized for two fingers, along with an “integral articulated” trigger safety more akin to those seen on many modern striker-fired semi-auto pistols.

The S333 is designed specifically as a carry revolver, with its compact size and noted capability of producing an 8-round volley of shots within 3 seconds and 4 trigger pulls. Standard Manufacturing also notes that a combination of standard ammunition and birdshot “…will deliver an incredible combination of firepower and very light recoil.”

Mission First Tactical (MFT) Introduces the Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer Mag

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

The EXDPM556 magazines are the latest addition to the MFT Magzine line-up. Over engineered for today’s modern warrior.

Horsham, Pa. (November 2018) – Mission First Tactical, LLC (MFT™), a leader in USA-made rifle/carbine accessories, is proud to introduce the latest addition to the MFT magazine line, the Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer Magazine (EXDPM556). Designed for the AR15/M4 platform but allowing for use with wide range of non-AR15/M4 platforms.

Manufactured using the newest material technology and processes, the magazines with their next generation long glass fiber polymer construction offer the trifecta of perfection in structural performance; strength, durability and stiffness. The stiffness allows the magazine to maintain its integrity without additional weight with an additional benefit of top performance even at elevated temperatures. The longer length reinforcing fibers produce increased strength and prevents deformation and polymer fatigue. Additionally, the Extreme Duty 5.56 mags offer increased durability through a more efficient energy transfer between the polymer and the longer fiber filaments during an impact. A long-life USGI-Spec stainless steel spring is corrosion resistant. The four-way, anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower keeps the rounds aligned and makes mag feeding consistent and reliable, while virtually eliminating jambs.

Confidence in handling the new Extreme Duty 5.56 mags is a piece of cake, even during weather or duress. The front and rear of the gripping surface is ribbed for a positive grip, even with gloves. An oversized bolt-catch provides enhanced reliability of the bolt-catch operation. The flared floor plate allows for an easier grip in handling and extraction and one-hand reloads. Wrapping up the multiple benefits to the newest addition to the MFT magazine line is a paint dox matrix to allow for easy marking and identification of magazines and the tool-less disassembly with the double floor plate safety release tabs.

Mission First Tactical Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer magazines are built for hard shooting and extreme treatment and shooting conditions and come with a Lifetime Warranty.

Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer Mag Specs:

Model Number: EXDPM556

Height: 7.494”

Width: .940”

Length: 2.525”

Color: Black, SDE (Tan)

MSRP: $12.99

Henry Introduces New Finishes and New Calibers

Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

Henry Repeating Arms, the American firearms manufacturer based out of Bayonne, NJ and Rice Lake, WI is introducing nine new models that include engraved finishes for the Long Ranger rifle series and additional caliber options for the Single Shot rifle series. These new releases come less than a year after introducing over a dozen models at the beginning of 2018 as a result of customer feedback and suggestions.

The Long Ranger Deluxe Engraved Edition rifles are built to the same specs and performance levels as the original Long Ranger rifles announced in late 2016 with the most significant difference being the lightweight alloy receiver finished with a nickel plating, intricate scroll engraving, and lightly accented with 24K gold inlay. The Deluxe Engraved Edition is available in .223 Rem/5.56 NATO (H014D-223), .243 Win (H014D-243), and .308 Win (H014D-308) with an MSR price of $1,850.
See more information here »

The Long Ranger Wildlife Engraved Edition rifles provide another twist to the original Long Ranger finish with highly detailed engravings saluting some of North America’s most revered game. The receivers share the same nickel plating and 24K gold highlights as the Deluxe Engraved Edition rifles. The .223 Rem/5.56 NATO version (H014WL-223) features a single coyote head on the left flat of the receiver and a pair of full-figured coyotes on the right. The .243 Winchester version (H014WL-243) shows a single pronghorn antelope head against a background of rolling hills on the left side of the receiver, and a full-figured pair on the prairie on the right. The .308 Winchester rifle (H014WL-308) depicts a majestic bull elk in a mountain setting on its left, and a grazing pair on its right flat. The MSR price for the Long Ranger Wildlife Engraved Edition rifles is $1,850.

As an expansion to Henry’s line of premium break action single shot rifles and shotguns, both .30-30 Win and .357 Magnum are now available. Single shot rifles are often sought out for their dependable simplicity, lighter weight, or the challenge that they provide to hunters who value the more methodical approach required when only one shot is readily available at any given time. The .357 Magnum version, which can also shoot .38 Special ammunition comes in either a blued steel receiver (H015-357) or a hardened brass receiver (H015B-357). The .30-30 Win rifle is only available with a blued steel receiver (H015-3030). The MSR price for the brass .357 Magnum rifle is $576, and the MSR price for both steel versions is $448.
See more information here »

Until now, Henry’s youth-sized firearm offerings only came chambered in a .22 caliber. The new Single Shot Youth Rifle and Single Shot Youth Shotgun add 2 new options for youth hunters. The rifle is available in .243 Win (H015Y-243) and the shotgun is available in 20 gauge (H015Y-20). Youth hunters often learn the basics of responsible firearm handling with a .22 rifle and then graduate to a milder shooting, but more powerful round for game. Both of these youth models are finished with blued steel metal and American walnut stocks with a length of pull that is 1″ shorter than their full-sized counterparts. The MSR Price for each is $448.

All Henry firearms can be purchased through a licensed firearms dealer. Most dealers offer a discount off of the MSRP. For more information about Henry Repeating Arms and its products visit henryusa.com or call 866-200-2354.

HECKLER & KOCH’S VP9-B JOINS THE FAMILY

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

Columbus, Georgia — Introducing the newest option on the most ergonomic striker fired handgun available, the VP9-B in 9mm. Retail priced at $719, the VP9-B offers a new US-style reversible push button and utilizes the same magazines as the other VP9 Series. The new push-button style mag release option from HK means the VP doesn’t just fit your hand, it fits your shooting style as well.

In any firearm, especially a handgun, the many “touchpoints ”between the shooter and the firearm are critical to consistent, repeatable, performance. Now, no matter how you are built or how you shoot, the VP series just fits.

• Depending on your shooting style, you can choose between a European-style ambidextrous paddle mag release or the new US-style reversible button. This determination must be made at time of purchase, as the two models are not convertible.

• The most ergonomic, adaptable grip frame available allows you to interchange both backstraps and grip panels in 27 unique configurations to fit your hand.

• The VP trigger is a real upgrade over the industry standard of many years. It has a short, light take-up with a solid, clean break; followed by a short, positive reset.

VP9-B models are made in HK’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany using all of the company’s advanced barrel manufacturing technologies and high level production of their machined steel slides, polymer frames, and all internal components. HK VP pistols are competitively priced and covered by Heckler & Koch’s lifetime warranty.

Tennessee Arms Company, best known for their polymer AR-15 and AR-10 lower receivers, is currently undergoing production on a new rifle they’ve dubbed the Omega Rifle. A design 10 years in the making, the Omega utilizes existing AR-15 pattern barrels and magazines, but also features a gas piston-operated action, is side charging, and has an adjustable trigger. The Omega will also come with a user-changeable back plate, which allows for the installation of various stocks, or a flat plate (for a pistol model). The model seen above is a working prototype, and doesn’t represent what the finalized commercial design will look like.

The unique feature of the Omega Rifle is its patented articulating bolt assembly. Somewhat comparable to KRISS’ Super V Recoil Mitigation System for the Vector weapons family, the Omega’s Articulating Bolt Assembly features a ‘Traveling Mass’, which moves downward during the firing cycle, sliding directly into the pistol grip; this system is designed to reduce felt recoil, with a shorter operation cycle and fewer moving parts than a standard AR-15.

The Omega Rifle is slated for a Spring 2019 release, at the latest. Tennessee Arms Company will soon be offering a pre-order for the Omega rifle chambered in 5.56mm. There are plans to expand the Omega’s chamberings to include 9mm, .308, and 7.62x39mm. We’re eager to see further developments on this new design as its release draws nearer.

Franklin Armory – BFSIII for AK

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

Minden, NV, October 17, 2018 Precision firearms manufacturer, Franklin Armory®, has successfully adapted the patented Generation 3 Binary Firing System™ to the AK Platform. Prototype triggers have undergone substantial field testing, and the final configuration will be placed into production soon. The BFSIII™ for the AK platform is slated to start shipping the first quarter of 2019. Pre-Orders for the BFSIII™ for AK will begin on October 19th.

Franklin Armory® President, Jay Jacobson, stated, “The Franklin Armory® engineering and design staff have really worked hard to create a fabulous BFSIII™ for AK that works in as many AK platforms as possible. Given the variety of clones out on the market, this was no small task.”

Fast on the heels of their previous release of the BFSIII™ for CZ Scorpion; Franklin Armory® proves again to be the premier manufacturer of Binary triggers with six models currently available.

The Gen 3 Binary Firing System™ was released for the AR platform in August of 2016. All BFSIII™ triggers feature a three-mode safety selector. Mode 1 is “Safe.” Mode 2 is “Semi” for semiautomatic. And Mode 3 is “Binary” mode. In Binary mode, the firearm will discharge one round on the pull of the trigger and one round on the release of the trigger. All BFSIII™ models feature the ability to negate the release round in Binary mode by modulating the safety selector back to “Semi” mode or “Safe.” Additionally, all BFSIII™ are engineered to prevent the operator from modulating the selector to “Binary” mode while holding the trigger back in “Semi” mode.

AK-C1 MSRP: $499.99BFSIII™
