Blade Show West 18 – SIG SAUER Knives by Hogue Knives

Saturday, October 6th, 2018

There was a time when the only way to get a SIG knife by Hogue Knives was to be a member of the SIG Legion. But now, there is a line of different designs available to everyone.

The knives are all made in the USA from US sourced materials. The blades are 154 CM or CPM154 stain resistant steel that is cryogenically heat treated to a Rockwell of 57-59. They include fixed, folding and automatic options.

Check out the full line here.

SOFIC 2014 – SIG MCX

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

SIG showed me a couple of variants of their MCX range of carbines. Offered in 5.56, .300 and 7.62×39, the MCX is moving into production.

The Low Viz Assault Weapon above features a 6.75″ barrel in .300. Notice the folding stock which offers a very slim profile when folded.

This shot gives you a view of the right side of the weapon. The short suppressor shown offers above 5 db more than an MP5SD but in .300 at the same overall package size of the MP5SD. It also features a adjustable gas system but the subsonic ammo setting can run supersonic ammo but it will affect service life of the weapon.

Additionally, SIG offers an adapter plate for Standard AR lowers that integrates a Picatinny Rail that allows the user to swap out folding and collapsible stocks.

FirstSpear Media Range Day

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

FirstSpear, along with Renegade Armor, Wilcox, and Aimpoint, sponsored a media range day at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department firing range. Three ranges were set up, with the first two featuring rifles by H&K and LMT, and pistols by Nighthawk Custom and SIG Sauer. The third range featured something a bit more exotic: rifles by FERFRANS, who are known for their Delayed Sear Activation System. This system made the 7.5″ 5.56 SCW PDW very controllable when fired in full-auto. It’s also very likely this system was responsible for reducing the felt recoil of the 7.62 SOACR near 5.56 levels. Wilcox also had demonstrations of their breaching torch technology; seeing the torch used to melt through rebar as quickly as it did was impressive. Overall, it was a great media day that offered the chance to try out some truly fantastic firearms. And, I got to spend it with Tactical Fanboy who wrote this article from his perspective. BTW, the photo of him with the FERFRANS SOACR is a snapshot in time. There are no rounds in the gun and he has just been handed it by the RSO. Also, his finger isn’t on the trigger.
