Thursday, October 17th, 2019

Minden, NV, October 15, 2019– Franklin Armory®, the makers of CA7TM (the only California Roster approved AR,) introduces a new long gun for the Golden State that is neither “featureless” or “mag locked.”

The Franklin Armory® Title 1TM was created for our friends behind enemy lines where the modern sporting rifle is neutered beyond comprehension. While fixed magazine and featureless platforms will continue to have their place, Title 1TM provides a FULL FEATURE option to the consumer in restrictive jurisdictions. It has a standard magazine release, and while it ships with a 10 round magazine, civilians can use legally acquired 30 round magazines with Title 1TM. Whether for hunting, competition, or defense, Franklin Armory® is constantly working to provide new options for the American firearms enthusiast.

• Since it is not a rifle, shotgun, or pistol, it can’t be defined as an Assault Weapon in CA

• Standard push button magazine release

• Usable with legally owned standard capacity magazines

• 3 points of contact including padded cheek weld

• Can be used with any flash hider or compensator

• 100% American made

Century Arms Announces New Canik Sub Compact Pistol

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

DELRAY BEACH, Florida – (October 2, 2019) – Century Arms is proud to introduce the newest addition to the already impressive Canik line of handguns.  The TP9 Elite Sub Compact (SC) is a concealable, lightweight, reliable, double stacked, striker-fired polymer pistol. This pistol comes chambered in 9mm and features a 12 round standard capacity, while still being easily concealed at an impressive 1.45” width and 6.70” overall length.  This pistol capitalizes on all of the amazing features the Canik brand has become known for while adapting to the needs of the discreet firearms owner.

“The demand for a reliable, double stacked, concealable handgun, at a price point the blue-collar American could afford without sacrificing quality or comfort was a challenge the Canik team accepted head-on!  We are proud to say that the TP9 Elite SC is exactly that, a superior handgun,” said Adam Ruonala, Century Arms National Director of Marketing.  “This firearm was designed with the sole intent of being an everyday carry for everyone from the Law Enforcement officer as a back up, to the private citizen who wants the peace of mind in knowing the capacity and functionality of the pistol is top of the line.”

The 3.60” barrel is the optimal length designated by Canik’s trusted engineers to ensure top tier accuracy out of the 4.60” tall TP9 Elite SC.  The weight comes in at a minuscule 24.78 ounces which results in an effortless carry.  The nickel-coated internals results in the smooth functionality that the Canik line has become internationally known for.

The features of the TP9 Elite SC far exceed the basic subcompact details.  The firearm comes standard with a tungsten slide and black frame, micro dot optics ready slide mount allowing co-witness with iron sights, a loaded chamber indicator, ambidextrous slide release, reversible magazine release, white dot phosphorous front sight and black out rear sight for easy low light target acquisition.

The TP9 Elite SC offerings do not stop at the above-mentioned facts. Every pistol also comes standard with a new subcompact holster that has the ability to mount either for an inside or outside the waistband carry. Each pistol comes with a 12 and 15 round magazine. The new Canik designed 15 round magazine features a grip extension module that allows the shooter to operate this firearm as a compact, giving the operator a multi-purpose pistol tunable to an ever-changing day to day landscape. The TP9 Elite SC has an MSRP of $429 and is available now.

Canik has already begun the process of creating a large number of accessories and add-ons that will soon be available to the US market. These additions will be available directly from Canik and will feature the same quality and dependability as the pistols themselves.


Savage Arms Tests a 200-Year-Old Question: Can One Gun Do It All?

Saturday, September 14th, 2019

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts –  By sending a single rifle around the country, hunting different animals with different hunters, Savage Arms hopes to answer a question that’s stirred debate in hunting camps and gun clubs for decades: If you could own just one gun, what would it be?

Savage hopes the answer is its “AccuFit” stocked version of its venerable Model 110, and that proof of its versatility is revealed in the “Traveling AccuFit” campaign that starts this fall. You can follow along as the rifle makes stops from Texas to Wyoming and Montana to South Carolina. Follow our story at www.savagearms.com/fitforall.

While Savage Arms does not believe that there is a single caliber to ethically hunt all game animals everywhere, the rifle company does believe that any rifle equipped with the AccuFit Stock is a good place to start for any hunter.

“A hunter’s rifle is the most crucial part of his or her hunting gear,” Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage Arms, states. “It must be accurate, reliable and built for the long haul. But to bring the most confidence to every hunter when it’s time to take that shot, the rifle must fit them. That’s exactly what we kept in mind when bringing the AccuFit stock to market in 2018. An innovative, accurate, high-quality rifle that’s suited to fit any hunter no matter the situation they are in.”

The Traveling AccuFit campaign takes the concept of “one size fits all” and intends to prove it by sending a single Model 110 Long Range Hunter rifle, chambered in .280 AI, across the United States to hunt multiple species with a variety of different hunters that vary in age, size, and experience level.

One rifle, six regions, seven hunts, and dozens of shooters. Can one rifle really be “fit for all?” Follow along this 2019 season as we set to find out www.savagearms.com/fitforall.

Saturday, September 7th, 2019

During the NRA Annual Meeting I was shown a couple of upcoming P365 models. The P365 XL is already out, but the one that really had me excited was the SAS model, which stands for SIG Anti Snag.

There are SAS models of other SIG pistols and they are designed as the ultimate Concealed Carry.

As you can see from these profile shots, the sights and controls don’t protrude.

The FT Bullseye sight is embedded into the slide and incorporates both fiber optics for day and tritium for low light.

Additionally, the barrel and slide are ported. SIG claims up to 30% less muzzle flip and zero front sight fouling, since there isn’t one.

Finally, the slide catch and takedown levers are flush.

Customers looking to purchase a Vudoo Gun Works rifle chambered in .17HM2, will enjoy using existing .22lr Vudoo magazines and the familiar feel and precision of the V22 action.

Langdon Tactical’s Latest Project

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

Meet the Langdon Tactical Edition XD-E, their latest project. Although it’s a bit of a departure from Langdon’s work on Berettas. he likes the fact that the popular XD-E is DA/SA.

Their custom model incorporates a Trigger Job, Upgraded Sights, Low-Profile Hammer, and Sniper Gray Slide.

Like the Langdon Tactical Beretta 92s and PX4s, the Langdon Tactical Edition XD-E features greatly enhanced trigger feel and performance without sacrificing safety or reliability.
