Icarus Precision, Accuracy, Control, Enhanced “A.C.E.” 320 X-Compact Grip Module

January 21st, 2021

The SIG SAUER P320 is truly a modular pistol and with the introduction of the P320 Fire Control Unit as a stand alone product, it’s even easier to assemble your own custom pistol thanks to companies like Icarus Precision who are making great frames for this platform. Icarus came on my radar last year when I found out about their frames for the P320 which are machined from billet 7075 T-6 Aluminum. During this year’s SHOT Show on Demand, Icarus Precision unveiled a new model.

The new Accuracy, Control, Enhanced or “A.C.E.” 320 X-Compact Grip Module is a great choice for a concealed carry build.

This frame features horizontal textured index points on the front strap, back strap and sides, to help increase draw speed and handling making for a consistent positive and precise grip. They’ve also slightly modified the beaver tail to reduce muzzle flip.

Although it is designed to be compatible with the OEM Sig X-Compact 15 round mag, they have reduced the overall circumference of the grip handle profile. It will also accept the 21 round magazine. There’s also a deep undercut trigger guard allowing for a higher grip point. Finally, there’s a Mil-Std 1913 Picatinny rail and lanyard point.

Offered in safety and non-safety versions in Armor Black, Tungsten, Midnight Bronze, OD, FDE and Raw.

Available 1/30/21 @ 8PM EST.

“Essential” A Film Featuring PPE Manufacturing By Outdoor Research

January 21st, 2021

Our friends at Outdoor Research recently released their film, Essential.

Essential shows the incredible teamwork and commitment of the Outdoor Research factory team, and teaches us about the power behind U.S. manufacturing. Outdoor Research has been a leader in U.S. made outdoor apparel and accessories for 40 years. Four floors of its 7-story headquarters building in Seattle, WA are dedicated to factory production space.

A 40-year history of rapidly developing cutting-edge Outdoor, Military and Tactical products provided Outdoor Research the ability to quickly shift to supporting the personal protective needs of the medical community.

The entire company is fully committed to ensuring that doctors, nurses, health-care workers and first responders have the personal protective equipment they require to effectively care for their patients. 

Highly respected in the outdoor industry for developing functional solutions for extreme environments, Outdoor Research has a history of successfully leveraging the best commercial market technologies to serve the needs of the armed services and first responders. Over the past two years the company has conducted a comprehensive review of the U.S. supply chain and is in active development with textile mills and materials providers to expand and elevate the capabilities of products that are 100-percent American-made. 

Over the last two years Outdoor Research has made significant capital investments designed to improve and modernize its Seattle factory. In May of 2019 the company opened an additional new, wholly-owned factory in El Monte, California. These investments allow Outdoor Research to take advantage of the company’s global knowledge of design, materials, and innovative manufacturing techniques while producing the next generation of outdoor and tactical products at its facilities. OR has continued to accelerate its product-development cycle, allowing the latest innovations to be rapidly fielded to the end user, helping increase the mobility and protection of soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, first responders, outdoor enthusiasts, and now the medical community.

Watch Essential to see how OR pivoted their business in March of 2020 to serve the needs of frontline healthcare workers and essential hospital staff.

This film is dedicated to Outdoor Research production staff and essential workers around the world. We encourage you to share this film, and the story of the OR factory team, as you are able.
