VLTOR Slims Down with Carbon Fiber M14 Stock

The M14 is a beast of a rifle. And I mean that not only because the rifle is still an accurate and effective battle implement over 75 years since the original design (M1) was fielded, but because the rifle is a chunky and massive piece of metal to lug around the battlefield. In a world where super slim rifles are all the rage and the “pounds equals pain” mantra is ringing strong, VLTOR has taken it upon themselves to reduce the overall weight of the M14 even further. Their original M14 stock that they introduced a while ago was just…

New From LUCID: P7 4x Weapons Optic (plus L5 6-24×50 initial impressions)

When the Shaolin Rifleworks guys informed me that the scope I had been using on their AR-10 has an MSRP of just $449, I was pretty darn surprised. The optics of the LUCID L5 6-24×50 were really good, and my initial impression was that I was behind some premium glass that’s beyond what I would personally spend. Shaolin said they were sharing the LUCID booth at SHOT Show and asked me to swing by, so swing by I did. As you’ll see in the video above, the owner of LUCID walked me through their new product for 2015, the P7…

New From PWS: MK212SD Suppressed-Only AR-10

Lindsey from Primary Weapons Systems gives us another rundown of one of PWS’s new products for 2015. Previously it was their GLOCK EDS, and this time around it’s a new rifle in their MK2 series called the MK212SD. As you’d expect from anything with “SD” at the end of its title, this rifle is designed to be run suppressed. In fact, the gas piston system is tuned such that it requires a silencer to cycle properly. What this means is less gas and softer cycling for a big reduction in recoil, and it’s likely a bit quieter and cleaner to…

Jesse James Releases New 30 Caliber Silencer, With some Bold Claims

Jesse James Firearms Unlimited is a very new player in the rifle world, and now they have decided to dip their toe into the world of silencers as well. We hear that the inspiration for the new silencer adorning this .308 Winchester rifle is the gas tank off of a motorcycle, and it definitely fits the bill as something new and different in a world of concentric circles and circumferential welding. The internals are very different as well . . . On the inside, the can looks like something out of the 1980’s. There’s a ton of internal volume so its…

Beretta Press Conference on M9A3, Modular Handgun System, Anniversaries, etc.

Despite rumors to the contrary, Beretta told me that the Army/DoD absolutely is reviewing Beretta’s ECP, or Engineering Change Proposal, for the M9 service pistol. The hope is that the M9A3 comes close enough to hitting the requirements proposed in the competition for a new MHS, or Modular Handgun System, that the Army and Air Force forgo the project and just stick with the M9 platform. Indeed, the M9A3 does meet ~86% of the MHS targets, and sticking with it would mean saving hundreds of millions of dollars. Here’s a 1-pager on the M9A3, and above is video of the…
