ZR65_1024x1024

Recover Tactical, perhaps best known for their railed grip panels for the 1911 and Beretta 92, will soon be releasing the ZR65 rail for the SIG Sauer P365. The ZR65 is an over rail adapter designed to interface with the P365’s proprietary SIG Rail, adding an industry-standard M1913/Picatinny rail to the pistol’s dust cover. The ZR65 is made of glass-reinforced polymer, and will be made available in Black.

Triggrcon 18 – S1-Wright-12 Breaching Shotgun from R&R Targets

Monday, July 30th, 2018

CMC Triggers displayed the S1-Wright-12 from R&R Targets. Although it’s a custom built design which has been used for 3-Gun competitions, this magazine fed, semi-auto, 12 ga shotgun is being evaluated by several SOF and LE organizations for breaching use.

I had the opportunity to fire it during Triggrcon Range day and it was quite controllable. If you’re familiar with an AR, you can shoot the S1-Wright-12. It offers the advantage of rapid magazine reloads (12 rounds) and ammunition changes. However, the bolt does not lock to the rear on the last shot like an AR. It was also fitted with a SilencerCo Salvo suppressor and I’m told that those currently evaluating the weapon use suppressed rifles and appreciate its utility.

The charging handle is mounted to the left side of the receiver and the top of the receiver features Mil STD 1913 rail.

The reason CMC Triggers was displaying the gun is that it is equipped with one of their triggers. During development, R&R Targets evaluated triggers from several different triggers, but the CMC AR10 trigger they selected was the only one which could stand up to the repeated hammering of the semi-auto 12 ga.

USSOCOM Awards SIG SAUER $48 Mil for Suppressed Upper Receiver Group

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

The Department of Defense has announced that USOCOM selected SIG SAUER to provide SURG.

Sig Sauer Inc., Newington, New Hampshire, was awarded a $48,000,000 five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed-price contract for the acquisition of the Suppressed Upper Receiver Group (SURG).  The SURG weapon is an upgrade of the M4A1 lower receiver group in support of U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Procurement Division.  Fiscal 2018 procurement funds in the amount of $24,620 are being obligated at the time of award.  The majority of the work will be performed in Newington, New Hampshire, and is expected to be completed by July 2023.  This contract was awarded through full and open competition.  USSOCOM headquarters, MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, is the contracting activity (H92430-18-D-0005).

SURG is a 5.56mm, integrally suppressed upper receiver. Despite assertions to the contrary on other websites, this is not a SIG Rattler kit.

However, there an entirely different program to offer a Personal Defense Weapon upper in .300. Earlier this year, SOCOM purchased a handful of SIG upper receiver systems to inform the requirement. Expect SOCOM to release a solicitation in FY19.

SURG asked industry to keep the handguard cool enough to handle even after firing the SOCOM suppressor torture test with M855A1. Several companies took up the challenge but experienced various issues.

US Army Issues Prototype Opportunity Notice for Sub Compact Weapon System

Friday, July 27th, 2018

Leveraging similar Other Transactional Authorities used conduct the Next Generation Squad Automatic Weapon program, the US Army wants to give up to six companies an opportunity to offer a, “highly concealable SCW system capable of engaging threat personnel with a high volume of lethal force while accurately firing at close range with minimal collateral damage.” The weapon should be optimized for shooting 147 grain 9mm.

This Prototype Opportunity Notice OTA has a goal of delivering a quantity of 15 functional weapons with Slings & Manuals, 40 – 20 round magazines and 80 – 30 round magazines, 5 cleaning kits, 3 suppressors, 2 specialized tool kits (if required for assembly/disassembly), and spare parts, within 30 days after award. If successful, a follow-on production OTA or Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) based award, may be made to one offeror for up to 350 SCW systems, which may include an option for additional quantities up to 1,000 SCW systems that may be exercised in quantities no greater than 350 SCW systems.

Once again, the requirement for the SCW is because the United States military operations take place worldwide and in all types of terrains as well as under every environmental condition. The Secretary of the Army and/or the Chief of Staff approves senior commanders and key personnel as High Risk Personnel (HRP). HRPs are authorized a Personal Security Detail (PSD), which are assigned to guard against outlined threats. To address this operational need, PSD military personnel require weapons with greater lethality than pistols that are more concealable than rifles. The ultimate objective of this program is to acquire a highly concealable Sub Compact Weapon (SCW) system capable of engaging threat personnel with a high volume of lethal force while accurately firing at close range with minimal collateral damage.

    FN Announces Expansion Of FN 509 Series With Tactical Model

    Thursday, July 19th, 2018

    (McLean, VA – July 19, 2018) FN America, LLC announces today the expansion of the FN 509® Series of striker-fired pistols with the release of the FN 509 Tactical, an optics- and suppressor-ready 9mm pistol. The pistol features the company’s patent-pending Low-Profile Optics Mounting System™ that enables the platform to accept more than ten commercially-available miniature red dot (MRD) optics and remain adaptable to future optics releases with no requirement of direct milling of the slide.

    “The FN 509 Tactical and the FN Low-Profile Optics Mounting System are another leap forward in the optics-ready pistol market,” said John Keppeler, vice president of sales and marketing for FN America, LLC. “FN set the trend for factory optics-ready pistols with the release of the FNP-45 Tactical nearly a decade ago and we’re set to do it again with this release. From barrel to base plate, the FN 509 Tactical really is the ultimate tactical pistol.”

    The FN 509 Tactical, an extension of the FN 509 family, is based on FN’s submission pistol that the U.S. Army tested for its Modular Handgun Trials, but includes the significant improvements to the design that were implemented in the FN 509. Like the optics mounting system, FN’s team of engineers set out to develop the ultimate tactical pistol by addressing the market’s existing limitations.

    As a result, the FN 509 Tactical features an FN-signature 4.5-inch, cold hammer-forged, stainless-steel barrel with target crown, ½” x 28 threads that accept the bulk of 9mm suppressors available and thread cap with integrated O-ring to prevent loosening during use. Lastly, the 24-round magazines, nearly identical in length to the pistol’s slide, maximize ammunition capacity without impacting carry convenience.

    The optics mount accepts the majority of MRD’s on the market with no need to direct mill the slide, allowing for a low-profile mount and co-witness with the suppressor-height iron sights. The slide cap, for use when not shooting with an optic, has raised sight wings that protect iron sight alignment if the pistol is dropped or jostled, and provides a textured ramp for racking the slide against a belt loop, pant pocket or boot.

    See the FN 509 Tactical at the company’s next stop on the FN Battle-Proven Tour at the Bojangles Southern 500 NASCAR Race in Darlington, South Carolina, Sept. 1-2, 2018. For more information about the FN 509 Tactical, please visit www.fnamerica.com.

    17EF8AE2-9B11-4DFF-89A0-83B2CB47E6EE

    After one of the most rigorous and highly competitive review processes in the history of military firearms the SIG SAUER M17 was awarded the Modular Handgun System (MHS) contract for the U.S. Army. The M17 is a P320-based platform, and was selected for its uniquely innovative modularity, uncompromising performance, and unmatched capability. The P320-M17 closely follows the specifications of the U.S. Army’s M17.

    “It was truly an honor for SIG SAUER to be chosen as the U.S. Army’s choice with the M17. When the selection was announced, civilian interest in the pistol was immediate,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We are proud to bring this P320-M17 to the marketplace to meet the substantial civilian interest, and the high demand, to own the pistol the Army uses as well as the other branches of the U.S. Military.”

The pistol features a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide with the same optic cut as specified by the MHS contract, and black controls just like the pistols currently being shipped to the U.S. Army; it comes equipped with a SIGLITE front night sight and removable Night Sight rear plate. The P320-M17 features a coyote-tan carry-length grip module, available in three sizes, and comes standard with a manual safety. Non-manual safety P320-M17 pistols will be shipped at a later date.

    The P320-M17 Specs:
    Total length: 8”
