Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

PERRY, MO – Ed Brown Products, Inc. is excited to renew their collaboration with ZEV Technologies, Inc. for 2019.  The perfect marriage of ZEV’s unique styling with Ed Brown’s classic quality 1911, this new collaboration builds on the success of the prior year EB/ZEV pistol, and takes it to a new level. Incredibly sophisticated slide cuts show off both ZEV’s innovative designs, and Ed Brown’s state-of-the-art custom machining ability.

 

This Commander Lightrail 9mm model is fully machined and adorned with the ZEV Orion slide cuts package.  Dressed in all black, the front strap and blended magwell housing features Brown’s new Alien metal treatment, perfectly matched with Alien grips.  A suppressor ready barrel with ZEV dimples,  scallops on the lightrail, recessed slide stop with serrated pin, and Trijicon RMR® with co-witnessing tritium sights, finish out this show-stopping masterpiece of functional artistic craftsmanship.

 

John May, Sales and Marketing Director for Ed Brown Products said, “We are excited to be working with ZEV Technologies on this new collaboration.  This pistol takes the strengths of two power houses in the custom handgun business and joins together our talents, providing our customers with the best new products every year!”

Colt Introduces the All-New King Cobra

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

WEST HARTFORD, CONN., (1/8/2019) – Following Colt’s successful re-entry into the Double-Action Revolver market in 2017, Colt introduces the all-new King Cobra in .357 Magnum. The King Cobra will be available in January 2019 through Colt stocking dealers.

The all-new King Cobra features American Stainless Steel construction, a heavy duty frame with a full- lug 3 in. barrel, and the 6-round capacity that differentiates Colt small frame revolvers from the competition. The King Cobra also features the same user-replaceable front sight and Linear Leaf spring trigger (LL2TM) as the rest of the Cobra family. MSRP for the all-new King Cobra is $899.

“Our customers started asking for a .357 version of our Cobra immediately after the release, and at that moment we knew we had to prioritize this great addition to the Cobra family” said Justin Baldini, Product Director at Colt. “We couldn’t be more excited to add the power of .357 Magnum back into Colt’s Double Action Revolver lineup.”

The all-new King Cobra premieres at the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF) Shot Show in Las Vegas, January 21-25, 2019. Industry Media professionals will get to experience the King Cobra for the first time at the “Industry Day at the Range” event which kicks off Shot Show. Customers will have their first opportunity to see the King Cobra at the NRA Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Penn., February 2-10, 2019.

Now Shipping – POF-USA Revolution DI in .308 and 6.5 Creedmoor

Friday, January 4th, 2019

(Phoenix, Arizona January 2nd, 2019.) We broke barriers and won awards when we released the piston driven .308 Revolution. Now, we are pleased to introduce the Revolution DI (Direct Impingement). By popular demand, you get the same technology, same durability, same features, and same AR-15 size (yes, it is truly an AR-15 sized rifle that shoots .308), but in a smaller direct impingement system.

 

 

What makes the Revolution so special? First, it is NOT a small frame AR-10, its smaller! It features many 5.56 parts; such as charging handle, bolt carrier, roller cam pin, buffer, heat-sink barrel nut, and handguard. Those are just the parts that are interchangeable. The barrel extension, bolt assembly, upper and lower receiver are all the exact same size as those found on an AR-15. This is what makes the Revolution Di possible, and puts a .308 AR platform in your hands that feels and handles like your 5.56 AR-15.

The Revolution Di didn’t shed weight by eliminating features. It’s quite the opposite. There is virtually nothing left to upgrade – no matter your shooting style or sport. This is a full-featured battle carbine complete with an ambidextrous billet lower receiver, 9-position adjustable gas block, heat-sink barrel nut, Renegade rail, single stage match grade trigger, triple port muzzle brake, and more.

The original Revolution PD (Piston Driven) weighs in at a paltry 7.35 pounds, turning heads for its incredible lightweight and small stature for a .308. The 308 Revolution DI weighs even less at 6.81 pounds with a 16” barrel, making it ideal for just about any situation you put it in.

 

 

Shipping now in .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor.

 

POF-USA is an Arizona-based small arms manufacturer known for its revolutionary concepts and radical approaches to engineering used to develop the finest piston driven AR-type rifles used by civilians and professionals worldwide. We are a market leader delivering a portfolio of regulated short-stroke gas piston operating rifles. We accept no compromise in the building of our product, known as “Patriot” designs. We will only produce that which is tough, accurate, modular, durable and true. This patriotic mission is brought from passion, authenticity, trustworthiness, rebellion, independence and objectivity.  Please visit www.pof-usa.com

Introducing Two New GLOCK Slimline Models

Designed for Comfort

Unique Features

Maximum Value

SMYRNA, Ga. – January 2, 2019 Today, GLOCK, Inc. announces two additions to the GLOCK pistol family.  The GLOCK 43X and the GLOCK 48 feature the design of the Slimline series with a silver slide and are a perfect fit for everyday carry. Chambered in 9X19, both pistols feature a compact Slimiline frame with silver nPVD finish and a 10-round magazine capacity making them ideal for concealed carry.

“With the success of the Slimline series in the marketplace and over one million GLOCK 43 pistols sold in just three years, the Slimline series pistols have been tested, trusted and proven,” said GLOCK, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey.  “We listened to the consumers request for a GLOCK Slimline model with increased round capacity and both of these pistols deliver that flawlessly.  GLOCK’s continued pursuit of perfection drives innovation while not straying from our promise of reliability and durability and that is demonstrated in the G43X and G48.”

Designed for comfort, the G43X and G48 combine a fuller-size grip length with a minimal profile of approximately 1” for a comfortably balanced, versatile grip that’s ideal for a variety of users. While the two pistols share the same size frame, they have different slide lengths.  The slide for the G43X is the same sub-compact length as the G43 (6.06 in.) while the G48 has a compact length (6.85 in) and is compliant with Canadian regulations.

These pistols incorporate elements of the Slimline series such as the short trigger distance, a frame with a built-in beavertail, a reversible magazine catch and the incredibly accurate, match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB). The G43X and G48 also feature precision-milled front serrations. Both models are available in three sight configurations; standard, GLOCK Night Sights (GNS), and Ameriglo BOLD.

The silver Slimline models G43X and G48 will be showcased at SHOT Show 2019 and will be available on dealer shelves beginning January 21st.
