Black Aces Tactical announces shipment of the $449 Pro Series S Shockwave Semiautomatic

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Black Aces Tactical (BAT), a veteran owned American manufacturer, is proud to announce the shipment of the long awaited and much talked about Pro Series S Shockwave Semi. 

Said Black Aces Tactical, “At the heart of the Pro Series S Shockwave Semi is a billet receiver produced local to central Florida combining the latest technology and most talented engineers.  We spent extra time to ensure our parameters were met so the customer receives the best weapon that we can produce.”


·              No NFA/No AOW

·              6061 T6 Aluminum Receiver

·              14″ Barrel

·              26.5″ Overall Length

·              Choice of Black Synthetic and optional Walnut Furniture

·              Mossberg rear flange and top drill/tap pattern

·              4+1 capacity

·              Cycles both light and heavy loads

“We took our time on this receiver”, said Black Aces Tactical.  “The fit and finish are very important to Black Aces Tactical.  When a customer opens the box for the first time, they have to be excited about what they see.  For instance, the grip perfectly mates to the billet receiver and gives the weapon a beautiful form. These are the little things that we focus on as we manufacture. Also, due to import restrictions, having a “firearm other” classification automatically means that the receiver itself has to be manufactured in America. This gave us the opportunity to make it right from the start.”.

Mauser 18 Now Available in 6.5 PRC

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

San Antonio, Texas (January 15, 2019) – Mauser’s award-winning Mauser 18 bolt-action rifle is now available in a 6.5 PRC chambering with prices starting at $699.

Recognized for its accuracy and ruggedness at an exceptional price point, this popular hunting rifle is among the first chambered for Hornady’s hot new 6.5 PRC cartridge.  The 6.5 PRC is a magnum version of the 6.5 Creedmoor and has a flatter trajectory and higher impact velocity than the 6.5 Creedmoor.  Utilizing moderate powder charges that result in repeatable accuracy, low recoil and high velocities with performance well beyond 1,000 yards, the 6.5 PRC is an excellent caliber for F-Class benchrest shooting and hunting medium to large game.

“The Mauser 18 is a big seller here in the United States because of its ultimate reliability, durability and accuracy at an unbeatable price point,” said Christian Socher, CEO of Blaser USA.  “We wanted to add the 6.5 PRC chambering as an additional caliber option for those who hunt and shoot at longer ranges.”

Thanks to its rugged synthetic stock, the Mauser 18 will withstand daily use in even the harshest hunting environments.  A three-position safety allows you to safely carry a round in the chamber without fear of the bolt being nudged out of battery. The steel receiver provides core strength and reliability to protect the action, and a cold-hammer-forged barrel gives further peace of mind that the rifle will perform consistently, round after round.

For optimum grip, the stock features two areas of soft-inlay.  The five-round magazine enables fast, fuss-free follow-up shots, and an adjustable trigger allows you to set your own preferred pull weight. Clean lines and high-quality materials result in a premium appearance, so that overall, the Mauser 18 has the look and feel of a rifle twice its price.

In addition to the 6.5 PRC chambering, the Mauser 18 is also available in .243 Win, .308 Win, .270 Win, .30-06, 7mm Rem Mag, .300 Win Mag and 6.5 Creedmoor.
