Maxim Defense Announces the Release of the new PDX SBR and Pistol in 7.62x39mm and 5.56 NATO at SHOT Show 2019

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

St Cloud, MN – Maxim Defense, the premiere manufacturer in PDW-stocks, pistol braces and accessories, is unveiling it’s newly-designed PDX™ in 7.62x39mm and 5.56 NATO calibers at SHOT Show 2019 in both SBR and Pistol formats.

Born from the SOCOM PDW solicitation, the NEW Maxim Defense PDX™ is designed to handle the fierce demands of the Tier-1 community. The PDX™ dominates in close quarter encounters and achieves maximum energy on target without sacrificing accuracy at distance. At just 18.75″ in overall length and 5 lbs 11oz. in weight, the PDX™ is the ultimate choice for when concealment and personal defense is non-negotiable.

At the heart of the PDX™ is our newly developed Maxim SCW™ stock system. This patent-pending design cuts down the length of the stock from the 7” collapsed length of a GI M4 stock to only 4.” Additionally, it features an integrated BCG with interchangeable buffer weights to give you the flexibility to maximize performance and versatility without sacrificing functionality or form.

The PDX™ is equipped with a newly invented Maxim HATEBRAKE™ Muzzle Booster. This patent-pending device significantly reduces recoil, decreases the flash signature, pushes gasses and concussion waves downrange away from the shooter, improving overall experience with short-barrel pistols and rifles.

Calibers: 7.62x39mm and 5.56 NATO
Barrel Length: 5.5”
Colors: Black or Arid
Overall Length: 18.75”
Weight (empty): 5 lbs. 11 oz.

Angel Armor Launches RISE 2.0 and Truth SNAP 855 Plate System for Increased Special Threats (M855) for All-Day Rifle Protection

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

FORT COLLINS, CO., — January 9, 2019 — Angel Armor has redefined armor once again with the launch of RISE 2.0 and the Truth SNAP 855 Plate System, which exhibits increased levels of protection against special threats (M855 Green Tip) in an innovative, lightweight, modular package.

“Unlike other plates on the market,” said Josh Richardson, co-founder of Angel Armor. “The Truth SNAP 855 Plate System allows for the user to replace just the ceramic strike face, which is the least expensive component of any ceramic-based solution, if ever damaged, increasing the overall life of the product while reducing budget strain. This is just one of many benefits that the Truth SNAP 855 Plate System offers to the user.”

Angel Armor has redesigned the RISE Armor System in RISE 2.0 to offer enhanced comfort, ballistic coverage, and versatility while improving All-Day Rifle Protection and market-leading weight distribution. The RISE 2.0 armor carrier utilizes 90% new premium materials with proprietary manufacturing methods and exhibits front and rear, top-load rifle plate access. The soft armor profile has been optimized using researched-based design through a collaboration with a leading University and local law enforcement.

RISE 2.0 is available in a variety of colors and offers custom sizing.

The Truth SNAP 855 Plate System and RISE 2.0 will be officially unveiled at Shot Show in Las Vegas on January 22nd. Please visit Angel Armor at Shot Show Booth #7511 to try on the RISE 2.0 Carrier and Truth SNAP 855 Plate System.

Badger Ordnance Introduces the Condition One Modular Mount

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

Badger Ordnance is proud to announce their new Condition One Modular Mount (C.O.M.M.).

The C1 Modular Mount is Badger Ordnance’s answer to a growing demand for modularity in optical platform mounting. The C1 Modular Mount offers the end user four accessory mounting points on the Unimount body both left, right, fore, and aft to suit a wide range of shooter’s needs. With the ever-expanding options available to shooters in the accessory and electro-optic markets, Badger Ordnance saw the need for a mount that can make the most use of precious real estate on rifle platforms while acting as a centralized hub for attachments and not suffering from deflection seen on optics and lasers attached to handguards.

For 2019 Badger Ordnance has also introduced new mount heights to their lineup. The C1 Modular Mount is available in a 1.93” tall height for shooters who prefer a more heads up shooting position or to allow for clearance of lasers and attachments. The 1.93” tall mount also helps to aid in shooting passively through optics while wearing head borne night vision systems. Badger has also introduced the height of 1.70” which is the common height of lower 1/3rdred dot mounts. With the wide adoption of low power variable optics Badger Ordnance felt the need for a mount height option for shooters who have developed their skills on, and spent tireless hours training with, lower 1/3rdheight red dots. The C1 Modular Mount is also available in NV height compatible options both in flat and 20MOA bias with options available for mounting co-aligned laser range finding systems.

Commercial release for the C1 Modular Mount is set for Q1 2019 with initial offerings in 30mm, 34mm, and 35mm with initial Micro Sight Mounts being offered for the Leupold DPP, Trijicon RMR, and Aimpoint T1/T2. Badger Ordnance will continue to develop the C1 Modular Mount line with attachments such as levels, mounts for digital displays, angle cosign indicators, offset sighting systems and much more. Whether you’re a casual shooter, competitor or those serving their Nation in Law Enforcement or Armed Services, the Badger Ordnance C1 Modular Mount will meet your demands.

Be sure to see Badger Ordnance at SHOT Show at booth #20005.

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.
