Goat Guns Miniature Rifle Models

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

Goat Guns are non-firing, die cast, 1:3 scale models of modern rifles and submachine guns. The models come with some assembly required, and in many ways are put together much like their real steel counterparts. The AR-15s, for example, have a functioning delta ring assembly for installing the forend. Additionally, the complete models include features such as adjustable collapsible stocks, functioning charging handles, squeezable triggers, and a magazine that can be loaded with included dummy rounds.

Currently, the Goat Guns line consists of various AK and AR pattern rifles, as well as the Accuracy International AWM, an SVD, AUG, and a Thompson Machine Gun.

Nomad Defense Co. – Nomad 9 Frame

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Nomad Defense Co.’s Nomad 9 is a stripped pistol frame that is compatible with Gen4 G19 components. Built with improved ergonomics over the stock Glock frame, the Nomad 9 features an extended beavertail; a contoured grip with no finger grooves; a raised trigger guard to allow for a higher grip, which is also enlarged for better use with gloves; and a forward thumb ledge, similar to the ‘gas pedal’ found on many modern competition pistols. The Nomad 9 also features a factory ‘rock grip’ texture, a MIL-STD 1913 spec accessory rail, flared magwell, and three interchangeable backstrap sizes.

Because of design changes when compared to a Glock-spec frame, the Nomad 9 is not guaranteed to be compatible with many G19-compatible holsters, however Nomad Defense is working with several holster makers to develop holsters for the Nomad 9.

Blast From The Past – Jim Schatz – 9 Known Truths

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Jim Schatz passed away last March. For those you who didnt know him, he served his country as a paratrooper and later, became a legend in the small arms industry. Every year, he’d stand up in from of his peers and government and remind them that the emporer was naked. Fortunately, his briefing slides are still available, although missing the context of his passion.

I originally shared Jim Schtatz’ “9 Known Truths” concerning small arms last year after he passed. Since then ‘Lethality’ has become the cause du jour and DoD, led by the Army, is ankle deep in a transition to a new caliber and family of small arms for its Close Combat Forces, called Next Generation Squad Weapon. It’s a 6.8 caliber capability (once again, NOT 6.8 SPC for those of you who believe what read on other websites) consisting of Carbine and SAW replacements.

The “9 Known Truths” is based on Jim Schatz’ experience in the Small Arms industry. Consider them now that we’ve seen DoD’s path forward.

9 Known Truths
General Thoughts on Modern Warfare and Small Arms Technology
1 The asymmetric threat, unencumbered by “western” doctrine and politics, exploits our capability gaps faster than we can react within our cumbersome infrastructure.

2 Kinetic Energy (KE) kill mechanisms (launched bullets, fragments) have been and remain state-of-the-art weapons technology since the 15th century. That will not change anytime soon so we should embrace and improve on it.

3 Man-portable “directed energy” technology is decades away. One cannot “schedule a break through”, regardless of what the sci fi writers and S&T community developers espouse.

4 For the ground combatant, pH and pI/K has not been markedly improved by so-called “Leap Ahead” or “Revolutionary” technology and “Star Wars” S&T projects, yet $B’s have been spent on unrealistic and undelivered promises.

5 Desired Target Effects (direct hits or effective target suppression) depends on aiming and launch “hold proficiency” (marksmanship) be it used for semi, burst or full auto KE fire, air-bursting engagements via accurate lasing, XM25 or “TrackingPoint”-style FS/FCS, or even directed energy “pulses”.

6 Repeatable First Shot hits/kills will never be readily accomplished due to the many “hold” and error factors beyond the control of the operator. Immediate through-optic BDA and rapid adjusted follow-on shots offer the greatest chance of improved target effects, BUT the equipment must provide that core capability to the trained operator.

7 Snipers as “force multipliers” exploit magnified optics, superior weapons, sights and ammunition to increase pH & PI/K at all ranges, especially those beyond assault rifle range. Rifleman can/should leverage that capability by employing affordable “paradigm shifting” precision enablers.

8 Training is paramount to effectiveness BUT advanced hardware enables advanced training and employment.

9 Incremental, available and emerging (and affordable) advancements in small arms, sighting and ammunition technologies offer the greatest return on investment and are waiting to be exploited.

Angstadt Arms Introduces SCW-9 Sub Compact Weapon

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Awarded Prototype OTA by U.S. Army Sub Compact Weapon Program
Charlotte, NC, (November 14, 2018) Angstadt Arms is proud to introduce the SCW-9 Sub Compact Weapon. The SCW-9 was designed to meet the strict requirements of the U.S. Army Sub Compact Weapon program. At just 14.7” long and 4 lbs., the SCW- 9 provides greater lethality than pistols and much greater concealability over standard rifles. With a rate of fire of 1,110 rounds per minute, the SCW-9 is capable of accurately engaging threats with a high volume of lethal force.

SCW-9 Key Design Elements
• Fully ambidextrous controls, including magazine release, safety selector, charging handle and bolt catch and release
• Accepts GLOCK® 9mm magazines
• 4” barrel with 3-lug adapter for sound suppression
• Ability to fire UTM marking and training rounds
• Overall length collapsed: 14.7”
• Collapsed stock length: 2.5”
• Weight: 4 lbs
• Rate of Fire (approximate): 1,100 rounds per minute

The Shortest Sub Compact Stock System

In addition to 9mm, the shortened stock system developed for the SCW-9 has been tested in both 5.56 NATO and .300 AAC Blackout calibers. This allows any M4 style rifle to reduce its overall collapsed stock length from 7” to just 2.5”. Making it the shortest telescoping AR-15 stock system available.

Angstadt Arms has plans to offer the shortened stock system to other manufacturers who wish to incorporate it into their firearms. A pistol brace version of the shortened stock system is currently in development for the U.S. commercial market.
