CZ-USA will soon be offering a semi-auto pistol variant of the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1 submachine gun for public consumption. The EVO 3 S1 Pistol features a polymer frame, blowback-operated action, 7 3/4″ barrel, and is chambered for 9mm Parabellum. It comes equipped with an integral quad Picatinny rail configuration, with the top rail coming in at 11″. The EVO 3 S1 comes standard with low-profile sights, with the rear sight having four different aperture sizes. The controls are ambidextrous, including the non-reciprocating charging handle which is swappable, and the reach to the trigger is also adjustable.
Interestingly enough, CZ-USA is also offering an arm brace adapter, which adds an “AR-style pistol buffer tube to the rear of the action, enabling the use of an arm brace for added stability.”

Columbia, SC, November 25, 2014 – Panteao Productions is happy to announce the availability of the AR15 Rifle & Carbine DVD at the NRA Store. This ninety minute DVD produced exclusively for the NRA was done with the intent of presenting the AR15 rifle and carbine platform in a clear and straight forward manner.

Kyle reviews the history of the AR15 platform, breaks down the overall function of the rifle, barrel lengths and twist rates, the differences between direct gas impingement and piston systems, choices in calibers, the many accessories on the market, and maintenance. If you are new to the AR15 and want to know more about the design and its features, this video is for you. If you already own an AR and want to see what other options are out there, look no further.
The DVD can be ordered online from the NRA Store at: http://www.nrastore.com/nrastore/ProductDetail.aspx?p=BK 02328

Back in June, we showed you a preview of ABS Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler’s first folding knife from from the BLADE Show floor, which features the blade profile of his popular Belt Knife. Now, that knife, dubbed the F-1 Flipper, is available for purchase. It is available in two configurations, the F-1 Flipper and F-1B Flipper. The difference between the two is that the F-1 features G10 scales while the F-1B incorporates carbon fiber scales. Naturally, the F-1B feels slightly lighter than its G10 counterpart.
The F-1 Flipper and F-1B Flipper are available from Winkler Knives dealers.

According to a memo issued yesterday at SureFire, there are a couple of organizational changes.
First, Jamie Wiedeman who recently returned to SureFire, will move over to Vice President of Military Sales. Jamie is no stranger to the military market having served a full career in the US Army. I got a chance to catch up with him at AUSA and I’d say he is an expert on SureFire products as well as their practical application.
Additionally, new hire Jeffrey Barger will be joining SureFire as Vice President of Marketing and Commercial/Consumer Sales. He brings 30 years of business experience to this role including six years as Executive Director of Commercial Development with Sturm Ruger as well as time as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Viridian Green Lasers.
We wish both well in their new positions.
