XTech Tactical Increases H&K VP9/P30 Standard Capacity with 17rd and 21rd Complete Stainless-Steel Magazines

Saturday, November 9th, 2019

Chandler, AZ- XTech Tactical, makers of premium firearm magazines and accessories, announced today the release of their expanded capacity complete magazine line for the H&K VP9 & P30 9mm pistols. These are anything but industry standard aftermarket magazines. The re-development process took over one year, and when you handle the parts it shows.

XTech Tactical first brought their VP9 and P30 magazines to market as 15rd and 20rds two years ago. The company has been widely accepted as the go-to aftermarket option that is on par with factory H&K magazines. However, consumers continuously reached out to XTech Tactical requesting an increase in capacity to bring the VP9 and P30 on par with other popular pistols.

XTech Tactical’s approach, as it has become known for, compromised nothing. The company completely re-engineered and re-tooled each of the plastic components to the flush fit magazine. In addition, the company added a 17rd indicator hole, and re-engineered the mag catch feature on the magazine body to offer seamless release on the newer VP9-B pistol.

The magazine bodies are upgraded in steel over factory and come with a lifetime warranty.  They are also available in 5 and 10 packs for both options. The 17rd magazines are only 1/10” longer than the company’s former 15rd magazines and H&K factory 15rd magazines.

The 21rd magazines feature the patent pending MTX design that offers industry leading reliability, ease of installation, and durability. The MTX line is also shipping for the Smith & Wesson M&P9 as a plus 5 9mm, and the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 9mm as a plus 2 to both the factory 7rd and 8rd magazines.

The magazines are 17rd (MSRP $34.95) and 21rd ($59.95). They can be purchased at  Dealer inquiries please contact Please also follow the company on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news and promotions.

Friday, November 8th, 2019

Today ZEV Technologies announced the release of a short grip for its standard-sized O.Z-9 modular pistol platform.

According to Dave Roberts, VP of Marketing with ZEV, “With a compact grip on a standard pistol, you have the advantage of a longer slide and longer sight radius but with a grip that is compact enough to minimize printing while carrying concealed.”

All of ZEV’s OZ9 pistol grips utilize a proprietary single-pin take-down system, allowing for a quick grip exchange with no need to remove the trigger or other components.  

“Whether you prefer a smaller grip for concealed carry, or simply have smaller hands, this new Shorty grip gives you the option to configure your handgun to fit your needs best”, stated Dave Roberts, V.P. of Marketing.  “Our goal for O.Z-9 pistols is simple, reliable modularity.   With the addition of this Shorty grip, an O.Z-9 standard pistol owner has the ability to change the size and color of grips along with various slide and barrel lengths and configurations”.

ZEV O.Z-9 Shorty Grip Kit features:
• Ready to install out of the box
• ZEV Gen4 Magazine Release installed
• Take-down pin included
• Available in three colors; Black, FDE, Gray

Magpul Product Release: Magpul Bipod – Sling Stud

Thursday, November 7th, 2019

The Magpul Bipod – Sling Stud QD is the next offering in the Magpul bipod line. Able to mount on the Uncle Mike’s® Sling Swivel Stud that’s common to nearly every sporting rifle made, the Magpul Bipod – Sling Stud QD is the strongest, most fully featured bipod available with direct sling stud mounting.

With its rapid-attach sling stud mounting system, the Sling Stud QD bipod takes the effort out of aligning and tightening that comes with traditional sling stud-mount bipods. The stainless-steel mounting system self-locates and aligns perfectly every time, and an ergonomic thumbwheel allows for excellent grip to ensure easy tightening. Additionally, two sizes of non-marring, high-durometer rubber mounting gaskets are provided to ensure optimized fit and load distribution on narrow sporter-contour or wider target-style forends. The ability to mount a sling with standard locking sling swivels on the forend is maintained with a low-profile sling stud on the rear of the Sling Stud QD mount, which also provides for a quick detachment when it’s needed.

Providing the same premium features available in the existing line of Magpul bipods, the Sling Stud QD bipod brings you the high performance associated with higher-priced bipods at a significantly more affordable price. Spring-tensioned, Mil-Spec hard anodized 6061-T6 aluminum and injection-molded, reinforced polymer legs stow neatly forward and snap down and lock into place with one hand. Leg extensions slide and lock securely with the push of a button on any of the seven locking detents extending from 6.6” to 10.0”. An industry-exclusive 50° of total tilt are controlled by a glove-friendly, knurled, tool-less, bipod locking knob located between the extended legs, allowing easy adjustment between shots. A soft rubber bipod locking knob cap is attached to the locking knob, giving users a steady, non-marring forward rest while the bipod is folded. Additionally, its staggered soft rubber feet hold fast on a variety of shooting surfaces and are easily removed with a roll pin punch. Should users choose to change feet, the Sling Stud QD’s legs accept most Atlas-pattern bipod replaceable feet. The streamlined housing and legs fit neatly under the barrel and are just under 2.5” deep and 3.3” wide when folded.


• Rapid-attach, self-locating stainless-steel mounting system attaches to Uncle Mike’s Sling Studs on narrow or wide forends, while also providing a quick detachment capability

• High strength reinforced injection-molded polymer, Steel and Mil-Spec hard anodized 6061 T-6 aluminum construction

• (+/-) 25 degrees of tilt about the longitudinal axis of weapon for a total of 50 degrees

• Uncle Mike’s-style sling stud on rear of mounting body

• Rapid leg deployment with efficient single-handed adjustability

• Quiet and positive leg deployment, adjustment and stowage

• Adjustable friction knob for setting tilt and ease of movement

• Individually adjustable leg lengths in 0.5” increments for a total of seven positions

• Removable rubberized feet are compatible with B&T Industries Atlas pattern replaceable feet


• Wide or narrow forends or M1913/M-LOK® adapters using the Uncle Mike’s pattern QD sling stud

CTK Precision Introduces the CTK RPR Universal Bolt Knob

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

Clintonville, WI – November 2019 – CTK Precision, a manufacturer of shooting equipment and gun accessories, has expanded their line of rifle upgrades with the CTK RPR Universal Bolt Knob.

The RPR Universal Bolt Knob is equally at home on your Ruger Precision Rifle or Remington 700. In fact, it will fit on any bolt with a 5/16″-24 threaded stud.

The RPR Universal Bolt Knob upgrade was designed to offer more leverage and easier bolt lift than a factory installed RPR bolt knob. Three ridges, machined onto the outside diameter of the body, allows for a positive grip on the knob while cycling the bolt. Because these ridges are machined, you’ll never have to look for a missing O-ring, which could be the case with other bolt knobs.

CTK RPR Universal Bolt Knob:

• CNC machined from aircraft quality 6061 aluminum for high strength and low weight.

• Type III hard coat anodized finish.

• Compatible with the Ruger Precision Rifle, Remington 700, or any rifle with a 5/16″-24 threaded stud.

• Installation is made simple by means of the internal set screw, allowing the knob to be locked in place with the supplied Allen wrench.

• Made in the USA!

CMC Triggers Announces the Release of its New Combat Curve Trigger

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

Fort Worth, Texas: Introducing the new CMC Triggers AR-15/AR-10 Combat Curve Trigger (CCT™) … The innovative design combines the comfort of the classic curve with the indexing of CMC’s patented flat trigger into one dynamic hybrid trigger bow for the modern warfighter.

CMC Triggers is the original maker and manufacturer of the Drop-in Trigger Group for the AR-15/10 rifle since 2003. CMC’s critical sear engagement surfaces have a propriety machining process that renders superior surface finish and dimensional control.

CMC Triggers sear engagement overlap is six to eight times greater than their competitors. This provides a much safer trigger and enhances reliability.

CMC AR-15/AR-10 Combat Curve Trigger (CCT™) Features:

– Single Stage Match Trigger

– Ultra-crisp 3.5lb trigger pull with no creep prior to hammer release

– Glass-smooth break with no feel of grittiness

– Totally self-contained one-piece assembly
