Samson Releases US-Standard Thread Adapters for 9x19mm and 9x37mm AKs

Friday, September 21st, 2018

Keene, NH – Samson Manufacturing has just released their new AK thread adapter for 9×19 and 9×39 AK-type rifles with 14 x 1 LH threaded muzzles. Constructed from 17-4 stainless or 4140 carbon steel, these adapters are designed to fit standard thread ½ x 28mm 9mm suppressors to the AK pistols hitting the market.

These will also let 9×39 shooters run subsonic ammunition through their 9mm suppressors (if rated by the suppressor manufacturer).

Samson Chief Operating Officer Tim Mulverhill explained, “These 9mm AK pistols are coming in to the country with a variety of muzzle threads. Some are 1/2×28 and can take a standard 9-mil can without an adapter, and others have the 14×1 left-hand European AK thread which requires an adapter. Sometimes both thread pitches can be seen from the same manufacturer, depending on import lot. Our adapter solves this issue for shooters with the more common 14×1 muzzle thread”.

The Samson AK thread adapter indexes on the muzzle of the barrel, which provides a more uniform and tighter lockup than cheaper versions that index on the front sight base. Mulverhill explained that, “There are so many variables in AK manufacturing as far as muzzle threading and front sight base installation – even from multiple guns in the same manufacturing lot – that the most reliable way to maintain concentricity with the bore is to index off the muzzle. Our adapter does not contact the front sight base and is not intended to, which reduces any chance of baffle strikes from poorly fitting adapters. So long as your barrel threads are concentric to the bore, our adapter will maintain that alignment with your suppressor”.

Also available for 14×1 LH to 5/8x24mm applications, Samson AK Thread Adapters can be purchased at  and are available for immediate shipment.

Continuous Precision LLC Launches New Era, Company & Website

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

September 12th, 2018: Continuous Precision; a quality American purveyor of pistol modifications and accessories is happy to announce the launching of their new website, Glock/ M&P slide packages & product lines. Continuous Precision (formerly known as Innovative GunFighter Solutions) is officially announcing the launch of their new website which features their newest pistol packages, the Duty and Hybrid series, along with their EDT V.2 triggers for the Glock (M&P coming soon) platforms.

Continuous Precision’s new Duty Series slide package is geared towards the individual that has a direct need for a firearm that can deliver traction, performance, and provisions for an RDS on demand. This package is also moderate enough to deliver all the benefits of a modified platform while still maintaining a Duty level appearance needed for Patrol work, Discreet carry, or Close Protection operations. We have also geared this package to be entry level to give the concealed permit holder of Law Enforcement Officer a budget friendly contingency.

Our Hybrid Series package is designed to be the ultimate expression of performance-based tuning on a handgun platform. We have factored in options that have been requested in the past by LE/MIL, Competitive shooters, and Training Instructors alike for a modified pistol platform. The Hybrid package highlights slide lightening for improved cyclic times, aggressive traction slide cuts, appropriately measured slide porting, and multiple RDS/Rear sight options. We have created this package to give the end user the highest amount of control in designing a performance driven machine. The Hybrid series is the best example of a platform that showcases a function driven design where form follows beautifully.

The EDT V.2 trigger is a drop-in aftermarket enhancement for your OEM pistol which is designed to deliver improved performance and ergonomics. We start off with an OEM trigger bar which is precision polished, deburred, and modified to guarantee a smooth & consistent trigger pull every time. The trigger shoe is machined from solid T6061 aluminum and designed with internal pre-travel reduction and over-travel stops. The goal is to deliver a clean breaking ergonomically correct trigger which will give the shooter clean, repeatable trigger pulls every time. To sweeten the pot, we added a Ghost Triggers 4.5lb disconnector to ease the weight of the factory trigger weight without sacrificing reliability.

Shadow Systems – Gen3 G17 LFT Hybrid Grip Slide

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Shadow Systems showed me this slide during the NRA Show and I have been waiting for it come out.

The LFT Hybrid Grip Slide was designed with Lead Faucet Tactical’s Dan Brokos. Brokos is a retired Army Special Forces Sergeant Major. Before founding Lead Faucet Tactical, Brokos served as the NCOIC of Ft Bragg’s Range 37, Home of the Army SF CQB and Sniper school.

Designed for use with the Gen 3 G17, the Hybrid Slide is cut for an RMR Optic. It also incorporates a front gripping surface with both directional serrations as well as an insert of die cut grip tape.

According to Shadow Systems, Brokos discovered that each surface has benefits in different conditions and with or without gloves.  Combining the two means positive control all the times that is not uncomfortable or “too sharp.”  Racking the slide also feels significantly easier for those with a weaker grip who have trouble overcoming the recoil spring.

• Excellent performance in muddy, wet conditions, and extreme cold
• Best-in-class grip surface when operating in gloves
• Commercial adhesive backed grip tape stays where you put it
• Cut for Trijicon RMR

LFT Hybrid Slide Includes:
• Stripped 17-4 Stainless Steel Slide
• DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) finish
• Rough grit gray, medium grit gray, medium grit pink grip tape inserts
• Slide is completely stripped and does not include Channel Liner

Century Arms to Continue US PALM Brand and Product Line

Saturday, September 8th, 2018

Delray Beach, Fla. – (September 10, 2018) – Century Arms, North America’s premier AK manufacturer, has announced the continuance of the well-known US PALM brand and will be showcasing the brand’s legacy product line at SHOT Show 2019. In cooperation with original founder and product designers, and with the help of Century Arms, US PALM will proceed with the innovative product development that it is known for.

“In this area of brand acquisitions and company mergers, there are some brands and products that need to be kept alive and untainted, US PALM is a perfect example,” said Chip Hunnicutt, Century’s Director of Marketing. “As a leading seller of AK rifles for nearly forty years, Century feels it is important to keep US PALM’s brand and level of craftsmanship in producing quality magazines and grips alive, so consumers won’t have to settle for imitations or knockoffs. Working with the original brand co-owners and designers, US PALM legacy magazines, instantly recognizable by their distinctive waffle and tread design, and US PALM grips favored for their exceptional ergonomics, will still be available under the original brand while staying true to their authentic vision.”

Century’s involvement will allow US PALM to launch a number of designs and prototypes that never made it to market. “We’re really excited that we were all able to make this happen and to see US PALM continue to deliver the highest quality AK accessories,” said Rob Anderson, the US PALM founder and co-owner. “Century’s significant history with the AK platform made them a logical fit for this effort and their energy regarding this project and insistence on sticking with our original vision has been impressive. The fact that we are heavily involved in this process and not simply being swallowed up by a massive corporate conglomerate was very important to us. We can’t wait to see where Century takes US PALM in the next chapter of its life.”

US PALM will be attending the Red Oktober shooting event, Oct 5th – 7th, at the Southern Utah Practical Shooting Range in St. George, Utah. Legacy US PALM products will be on display and the company’s founders will be on hand to meet and greet shooters during the match. “It’s important to us that our supporters and the shooting community at large know this is a direction we not only support, but are excited about,” said Brandon Finch, a US PALM co-owner. “Red Oktober has become an impressive gathering for AK enthusiasts and a logical place for us to close out the year and set the stage for US PALM’s new beginning.”

Century Arms plans to have an updated US PALM website in the coming months and to introduce the brand and its product line as part of the company’s brand portfolio at SHOT Show 2019. Follow US PALM now on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on breaking news.
