SAUER Introduces Ultralight S101 Highland XTC Carbon-Fiber Rifle

Wednesday, November 11th, 2020

San Antonio, Texas (November 10, 2020) – J. P. Sauer & Sohn, Germany’s oldest manufacturer of hunting firearms, is pleased to introduce the ultralight S101 Highland XTC carbon-fiber rifle.  Weighing just 5.4 lbs. in the .308 Win version, this highly accurate bolt-action rifle is ideal for strenuous hunts when every ounce counts. 

The S101 features a hand-laid, carbon-fiber stock with advanced recoil absorbing properties.  The barrel is fluted and threaded for additional weight reduction and cold-hammer forged for guaranteed precision of less than one MOA at 100 yards.  The barrel and receiver also feature Sauer’s Diamond-Like-Carbon (DLC) surface for maximum corrosion protection.

“The DLC layer is 40 times thinner than a human hair while offering key advantages such as superior surface hardness and maximum rust protection and wear resistance,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group.  “Many advances were made in the production of the Highland XTC, and it now holds the record as Sauer’s lightest rifle ever.”

Additional features include superb balance, a crisp match-grade trigger, fluted bolt, and Sauer’s Dura Safe direct firing pin safety which operates as an ergonomic slide on the bolt shroud for enhanced safety and optimum operation.  The Highland XTC consistently delivers precision and accuracy even under the most extreme climate conditions. 

The Sauer S101 Highland XTC carbon-fiber rifle is available in all current calibers in the S101 series and, depending on the caliber, in barrel lengths from 20-inches to 22-inches.

MSRP: $3,000

MasterPiece Arms (MPA) Unveils the MPA AR9 PCC (Pistol Caliber Carbine)

Wednesday, November 4th, 2020

Designed specifically for superior reliability and maximum accuracy by competition shooters for all-out performance, the MPA AR9 PCC is still capable of in-home personal defense and other tactical situations.

Comer, Ga. (November 2020) – MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, is pleased to introduce the MasterPiece Arms AR9 PCC (Pistol Caliber Carbine). Specifically designed for superior reliability and maximum accuracy, the AR9 PCC still retains the familiar handling and controls of the AR platform. This outstanding carbine was designed by competition shooters for maximum performance but is still capable of in-home personal defense and other tactical situations. The AR9 PCC is the first release from MPA’s recent product line acquisition from CK Arms.

The MPA design team has designed the MPA AR9 PCC lower receiver to be compatible with the GLOCK pattern magazines in 9mm. The new 7075 billet-machined aluminum receiver models also accept standard AR accessories like furniture, triggers, charging handles, buttstocks, and optics, and incorporate an integral trigger guard and flared magwell for fast reloading.

The MPA AR9 PCC closed-bolt blowback operating system is soft shooting and reliable with a wide variety of 9mm loads and exhibits flawless feeding with all common pistol bullet profiles, including hollow point and ball ammunition. The AR9 PCC proprietary bolt carrier group with heavy duty claw extractor and plunger ejector is tuned for exceptional reliability and has been optimized in weight for less reciprocating mass, which equals a flatter and softer shooting platform.

During the test and evaluation process, multiple buffers and recoil systems were tested and evaluated. MPA chose the best performing combination that enhanced the shootability of the rifle that puts it a tier above the competition. The AR9 PCC is also an excellent suppressor host with minimal gas blowback and enhanced accuracy over the other designs. Like all of its rifle products, MPA uses 416R SS match-grade button-rifled 1-10” twist 9mm barrels to ensure that the AR9 PCC meets MPA’s stringent quality and accuracy requirements.

MPA AR9 PCC Specifications:
• Billet machined lower from 7075 aluminum
• Caliber specific upper with a flared ejection port
• Hard coat black anodized (type 3) and Cerakoted
• Enhanced magwell for easy magazine loading
• 16” lightweight 416R stainless steel barrel, 1:10 Twist
