SHOT Show – Springfield Armory

January 25th, 2015


At this year’s SHOT Show, Springfield Armory unveiled a number of new stocks for their M1A and it variants. This includes MultiCam and Flat Dark Earth stocks for the SOCOM 16, Flat Dark Earth composite stocks for the Scout Squad, Kryptek Highlander for the standard M1A, and the Precision Adjustable stock for the Loaded M1A.


Springfield also introduced their new sub-compact XD MOD.2 line. MOD.2 has the new GripZone feature, which adds three different textured zones to the grip. These textures are designed to make the pistol less prone to torque, wrench, and flip when shooting, and each zone is designed to meet up with certain sections of the shooter’s hand for comfort and retention.

Additional features of the MOD.2 line include:

- Low-profile rear combat sight / fiber optic front sight
- Loaded chamber indicator
- Striker status indicator
- Posi-wedge slide serrations
- Slimmed slide for concealability
- Slim contoured disassembly lever
- Accessory rail
- Ultra Safety Assurance (USA) trigger system
- No snag trigger guard
- Ambi mag release
- HIGH-HAND grip relief
- HIGH-HAND beavertail
- Ultra slim contoured frame
- Grip safety

SHOT Show – Taurus

January 25th, 2015


The Curve is one of the more unique pistols to be shown at SHOT Show. Chambered for .380 ACP, the Curve is designed specifically for right-side pocket carry, with its curved design and integrated belt clip. Its smooth, snag-free design, according to Taurus, ensures no visible printing when concealed.


The Curve has a “bore-axis sighting system”, where the three lines on the back of the slide function as the sighting system; the Curve has no iron sights. To make up for this, the Curve can be purchased with an integrated light and laser combo, which is built into the frame.


The magazine features a 6-round capacity, and is removed from the pistol by depressing both side tabs and pulling down.

The main compartment has 10 internal organizing pockets, along with a zippered internal mesh pocket, and a fold out panel with elastic loops for additional items.

Currently available in Black.

SHOT Show – Standard Manufacturing

January 25th, 2015


Following in the footsteps of Kel-Tec and UTAS, Standard Manufacturing has developed their own bullpup pump action shotgun with dual magazine tubes, however unlike the former two shotguns which feature a single barrel that feeds from two tubes, the DP-12 features double barrels. Two shells are chambered with each pump, and the trigger must be pulled twice to fire both barrels. Each tube is capable of holding 7 2 3/4″ shells, for a total capacity of 14+2. The DP-12 is machined from a solid billet of aircraft grade 7075 aluminum, and it features a spring loaded recoil pad.

SHOT Show – Maglula

January 25th, 2015


Maglula’s Range Benchloader is a heavy-duty industrial 30-round loader for most standard .223/5.56 magazines, including aluminum, polymer, and steel magazines. The Benchloader’s design allows users to quickly load up to 30-rounds through its single stroke loading action. Its open design allows for examination of rounds prior to loading, and the design reduces wear on feed lips, prolonging magazine life.

Some Words Of Wisdom From Mike Pannone

January 25th, 2015


Mike said that this was a distillation of what made the units he had served in so great…and so hard on commanders.

ORWM – Atlas 46

January 24th, 2015

The legend John Carver has applied years and years of tactical nylon production toward the manufacturing market. Ever since he’s lived in Montana, he’s been doing lots of DIY projects.


He makes a belt system with a variety of pouches that can be quickly swapped out.


The pouches themselves are also modular with a simple attachment system. The drill holster takes some design cues from pistol holsters including a shock cord to keep it secure. Additionally, the material extends down further because so many carry their holster with a bit installed which can cut the user or his clothing.

ORWM – Mystery Ranch

January 24th, 2015

The Java is a new urban pack from Mystery Ranch. It takes the TT-zip concept to a whole new level, with the center zip accessing a compartment and the large U shape, dual zip opens the main compartment from either side making it ambidextrous.


The Java offers padded mesh back and shoulder straps.


It’s a 21l design with dual compartments on either side of the center access zip.


Last but not least, it can be opened completely.


Coming FALL 2015, in Black, Coyote and Midnight.
