TFB TV showcases multiple new products from Magpul for 2022. We liked what we saw, including a new $600 Pro 700 Lite chassis, and a new 8-ounce bipod. Magpul also had its radical FDP-9 “enclosed pistols” on display. Magpul explains: “With recently confirmed classification of the FDP-9 as a handgun, the purchaser can enjoy the firearm as a self-enclosing, large-format pistol. They may also choose to file the appropriate ATF Form 1 and, after approval, purchase a conversion kit to legally assemble it into the FDC-9. It will then be classified as a short-barreled rifle (SBR) and subject to all NFA laws.”

SHOT Show 2022 Day 2 — Featured Rifles and Pistols

SHOT Show 2022 caesars forum venetian gun pistols

SHOT Show 2022 continues in Las Vegas. Attendance is down compared to years past, but there are still many innovative products on display in the “miles of aisles”. This year’s SHOT Show encompasses two facilities — the Venetian Expo AND the new Caesars Forum. Combined, these facilities provide over 800,000 square feet of exhibit space. The two trade show halls are connected by a new elevated walking bridge.

SHOT Show 2022 caesars forum venetian gun pistols

New Rifle Systems

There were some interesting new bolt-action chassis rifles for the PRS/NRL crowd, along with some impressive, high-end hunting rifles on display, such as the eye-catching Christensen Arms Modern Hunting Rifle (MHR). In addition there were quite a few new rimfire rifles. With the increasing cost of components, and the difficulty of finding primers and powder, many riflemen are shooting more rimfire than ever before.

Christensen Arms Modern Hunting Rifle (MHR)


SHOT Show 2022 caesars forum venetian christensen arms modern hunting rifle mhr

The Christensen Arms Modern Hunting Rifle (MHR) features an interesting multi-piece, modular stock with a metal center section and composite fore-arm and buttstock sections. The barrel is carbon-wrapped. The MHR’s modular design lets the customer select from a variety of different forearm and butt section components. That allows you to configure the rifle for field carry or long-range work from prone.

Aero Precision Bolt-Action Rifle with Barrel Nut

At SHOT Shot 2022, Aero Precision displayed its new bolt-action rifle. This features a 3-lug (60-degree throw) bolt with three interchangeable bolt face sizes (standard, medium, magnum). Notably the rifle features a Savage-style barrel nut so pre-fit barrels can be used. The rifle has a metal chassis with modular fore-arm, extended forward bipod mount, quick-adjust length of pull, and rear bag-rider keel.

Rock Island TM22 — AR Style .22LR Semi-Auto Rimfire

SHOT Show 2022 caesars forum venetian gun pistols

Rock Island Armory’s new TM22 Rifle employs AR-type design and construction, being made from 7075 aircraft-grade aluminum. It also has a AR-type grip and an M-LOK capable fore-end that can accept a wide variety of accessories. The TM22 is available in both 20″ barrel (TM22-A20) and 18″ barrel (TM22-A18) versions. The TM22 ships with a 10-round magazine, but aftermarket 15- and 25-round mags are available. In the video below, the GunsAmerica Digest team tests the TM22 at the Industry Day at the Range earlier this week.

Timbercreek Outdoors Colorful AR Platform Build Kits

This Oregon-based company offers build kits with handguards, grips, buffer tubes, and other components in a variety of eye-catching colors — red, orange, purple, green, blue… you name it. If you like bright-colored rifles, this is your solution.

Notable Handguns — Semi-Autos, Revolvers, and a Bolt-Action

There were scores of handguns on display at SHOT Show. There was certainly an emphasis on small carry pistols, even at the Smith & Wesson booth. Gun sales have been at record levels in the past couple of years, as more states are authorizing concealed carry. Accordingly the gun-makers are providing new pistols suited for everyday carry.

.44 Auto Mag — Beautiful Stainless Semi-Auto with Power

The .44 Auto Mag semi-auto pistol is literally a “blast from the past”. First released decades ago, this is the latest version of a handsome, powerful handgun. In this video, TFB’s testers try out the legendary .44 Magnum Auto Mag pistol at Industry Day at the Range. Other gun journalists at the event who tested this latest Auto Mag gave very favorable reviews. And we think it is one handsome pistol. In a world of polymer pistols, we love the all-stainless steel construction.

Korth .357 Mag Revolver from Nighthawk Customs

nighthawk custom korth blued revolver .357 Magnum

Korth revolvers are produced in Germany and distributed in the USA through Nighthawk Custom. For 2021 Nighthawk is offering the spectacular Korth Heritage Edition in .357 Magnum.

A fully adjustable rear sight pairs with an 18k gold bead front sight. The grips have been carved from figured Turkish walnut.

Notable Products in Review for 2022

CZ 600 Series Rifles: Range, Alpha, Lux, Ergo, Trail

cz cz-usa 600 series trail range alpha ergo carbon

CZ recently introduced the new CZ 600 line of centerfire rifles. The series includes four unique models, with a variety of stock types, barrel profiles, action lengths, and chamberings. User-friendly CZ 600 features include 60-degree bolt throw, adjustable triggers, and the ability to swap barrels/chamberings using optional conversion kits. The CZ 600 Series includes four brand new models: Alpha, Lux, Trail, and Range.* These are designed for accuracy, modularity, and smooth cycling. Expect CZ 600s at dealers in early 2022.

Controlled-Feed Action with 60° Throw: CZ 600 Rifles have a 60-degree bolt throw. This cycles faster than a 90-degree bolt, with more clearance between bolt and optic, allowing for larger scopes. All CZ 600 models boast an oversized bolt knob for improved control with gloved hands. And the actions have controlled-round-feed. The 2-position safety allows bolt cycling with the safety engaged.

Bergara Premier MGLite Rifle with Carbon-Wrapped Barrel

The bore looked good and the trigger broke at a crisp 3 pounds. Get more details on UltimateReloader.com:

bergara premier series mglite carbon

Featuring CURE Carbon barrel technology, this is a step forward for Spanish gun-maker Bergara, though we were a bit shocked at the $3229.00 MSRP. You can buy a very nice custom rifle for that much money.

There was much interest surrounding Savage’s new straight-pull tactical rifle, the Impulse Elite Precision which will be available in the “spring of 2022″. We recently reported on this new rifle in the Daily Bulletin. True Pearce got his hands on the new rifle at the Savage range booth, and he said the straight-pull action can, with a little practice, definitely increase rifle cycling speed: “It’s much faster to chamber follow-up shots, and stay on target. Even novice shooters can chamber a second shot much faster than with a standard rotating bolt.” Here is his video report:


Watch video starting at 3:00 time-mark to see bolt cycling.

GunsAmerica Digest writer Levi Sims explained the advantages of the Savage’s straight-pull operation: “Normal bolt action guns require you to lift the bolt handle, pull it back, and then push it back forward, and then pull it back down to lock it in place. With modern optics often using larger ocular bells, manufacturers have made an effort to reduce the classic 90° throw to just 60° to allow room for the bolt to move past the bell. The straight-pull action reduces all that movement to simply pulling forward and backward on the bolt handle. The handle swings a few degrees forward and back to lock/unlock, but it has no vertical movement at all. It will likely fit well with all scope designs and mounts.” Retail price for the Savage Impulse Elite Precision is $2619.00. Currently that would not be eligible for Production Class under PRS 2021 Rules.

Savage currently offers the Impulse Elite Precision with seven chamberings: 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .308 Win, .300 PRC, .300 Win Mag, and .338 Lapua Magnum. The four smaller chamberings have 26″ barrels while the .300 PRC, .300 Win Mag, and .338 LM have 30″ barrels.

New Tisa PX-9 Gen III Pistol

GunsAmerica Digest Editor True Pearce tested a number of handguns on Monday. One of his favorites, based on “bang for the buck”, was the new Tisa PX-9 Gen III 9mm pistol.

Media Day at the Range GunsAmerica Digest 2022

GunsAmerica Digest staffer Jordan Michaels reported that the PX-9 performed well: “Most importantly, the gun shoots. GunsAmerica editor True Pearce was impressed with the gun’s ergonomics and the quality trigger. It’s a real pleasure to shoot, and it reminded us of the H&K VP9 and the SIG P320.”

This modern pistol is made in Turkey. There are many options: “The PX9 Gen III comes in three different configurations: the Duty, the Duty Threaded, and the Tactical Threaded. The MSRP varies by configuration ($500-$600), but all three are chambered in 9mm and come with a slide cut for RMR-footprint optics. All three ship with 18 and 20-round magazines[.] The PX-9 comes with a removable flared mag well, and interchangeable side and back grip panels. With three options for each panel, the PX-9 offers 27 different grip combinations to fit any size hands.”

PRS Game-Changer? Savage Impulse Straight-Pull Chassis Rifle

Savage 110 Impulse elite precision chassis rifle 6.5 Creedmoor 300 PRC shot show tactical

This is big news for the PRS/NRL and tactical game. Savage Arms has adapted its Impulse straight pull action for the tactical market. Savage’s new Impulse Elite Precision combines the award-winning Savage Impulse straight-pull action with a precision MDT aluminum alloy chassis. The ability to shoot faster, with less rifle movement, is potentially a game-changer for the tactical/precision rifle competitions where stages run “on the clock” and fast follow-up shots are very important.

The new Impulse Elite Precision features a straight-pull action fitted in a ACC (adjustable core competition) chassis from Modular Driven Technologies™ (MDT). With a full-length ARCA rail, the Impulse Elite Precision can be easily customized for individual balance preferences. You can add weight and accessories on the fore-arm easily through the ARCA mounts. And the rear section offers adjustable length of pull and cheekpiece height. The ambidextrous bolt can be fitted on either right or left sides.

Savage 110 Impulse elite precision chassis rifle 6.5 Creedmoor 300 PRC shot show tacticalThis Impulse straight-pull action is bedded in an Adjustable Core Competition chassis from Modular Driven Technologies (MDT). From its full-length ARCA rail to its nitride coatings, the Impulse Elite Precision is optimized for the PRS/NRL game.

“The Elite Precision has changed the way Savage shooters think about long-range capability,” said Jessica Treglia, Senior Brand Manager for Savage Arms. “The addition of the Impulse straight-pull action is going to add a new element of speed to an already efficient rifle. When split times are an important aspect of the competition, Impulse Elite Precision will be a game-changer.”

The new Impulse Elite Precision will initially be offered in seven chamberings: 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .308 Win, .300 PRC, .300 Win Mag, and .338 Lapua Magnum. MSRP for the rifle in the four smaller chamberings (all with 26″ barrels) is $2619.00 while the .300 PRC and magnums will cost $2839.00. The .300 PRC, .300 Win Mag, and .338 LM have 30″ barrels.

Hunting Version of Impulse Named 2021 Rifle of the Year
The Savage Impulse straight-pull hunting rifle recently won the coveted NRA American Hunter 2022 Golden Bullseye Award as Rifle of the Year. Previously, Guns & Ammo magazine editors also named Savage’s Impulse the 2021 Rifle of the Year.

Savage Impulse Straight-Pull Action — Overview

Savage’s Impulse series of straight-pull bolt rifles is the first American-designed and crafted straight-pull centerfire rifle. The new Impulse features an innovative Hexlock bolt-locking mechanism with six spherical bearings that move radially outward into a ring in the barrel extension, thereby locking the bolt in place. That barrel extension is held in the receiver assembly by four cross-bolts on the lower front section. Ahead of the barrel extension is a conventional recoil lug and a familiar Savage barrel nut.

Innovative Hexlock Bolt System in New Savage Impulse

When the bolt is closed, the Hexlock system holds it in place instead of conventional lugs. With the Hexlock, six (6) hardened steel bearings lock the bolt in place inside the receiver’s barrel extension. Savage says “As pressure increases, Hexlock’s hold tightens, ensuring that there can be no rearward movement of the bolt. Once the round has left the barrel, the pressure subsides, and the action can safely open again with the straight pull of the bolt handle.”

30 Super Carry — New Pistol Cartridge from Federal

Federal Carry 30 new pistol cartridge 9mm
Sometimes smaller is better — at least when a more compact cartridge than the 9mm Luger (9x19mm) still packs the punch of the larger round.

Federal Carry 30 new pistol cartridge 9mmBrand New Pistol Cartridge for Carry Guns
Federal has just released an all-new pistol cartridge, the 30 Super Carry. Designed expressly for CCW and personal defense applications, this new 30 Super Carry cartridge packs the punch of a 9mm Luger round (9x19mm), with a smaller casing, so you can fit more rounds in a magazine. A pistol that holds 10 rounds of 9mm Luger ammo can hold at least 12 rounds of 9mm Super Carry ammo. That’s a 20% increase in capacity.

In a defensive situation, that extra two rounds could make a difference. But importantly, the 30 Super Carry is not a weak round. You don’t give up stopping power or penetration when compared to the classic 9mm Luger cartridge. In Federal’s tests, penetration through heavy clothing was actually BETTER with the 30 Super Carry than the 9mm Luger (15.5″ vs. 14.5″). NOTE: The actual 30 Super Carry bullet diameter is 0.312″, slightly fatter than a “30 caliber” rifle bullet (0.308″).

Worthy Replacement to 9mm Luger?
Is this a useful alternative to the 9mm Luger? It depends. The new 30 Super Carry is definitely more effective than the .380 ACP so it beats that alternative. And velocity is actually higher than the 9mm Luger mainly because the 30 Super Carry shoots a lighter bullet — 100 grains vs. the typical 115-125 grain 9mm bullet. For many the key appeal of the new cartridge is the ability to carry more rounds OR carry the same number of rounds with a lower overall weight.

Federal’s New 30 Super Carry is 13% smaller than a 9x19mm, with very similar ballistics

30 Super Carry Questions and Answers

How is the 30 Super Carry’s felt recoil compared to the 9mm Luger?
Recoil, flash and sound report provide a very similar shooting experience to 9mm Luger

How do the 30 Super Carry’s velocity and energy compare to 9mm Luger?
They are extremely similar. The 100-grain 30 Super Carry HST carries 347 foot-pounds of energy at the muzzle and has a velocity of 1250 fps; the 124-grain 9mm Luger HST has 364 foot-pounds of energy and a muzzle velocity of 1150 fps.

Do I need a different firearm to shoot the 30 Super Carry?
Yes, you need a firearm chambered for 30 Super Carry. Currently, Smith & Wesson and Nighthawk Custom offer these platforms.

How does the 30 Super Carry differ from older cartridges such as the 7.65×21 Parabellum, 7.65×20mm Longue, 32 Auto and others?
While there might be some coincidental similarities, the 30 Super Carry was fully developed from the ground up with no parent cartridge. Utilizing modern materials and designs, it provides vastly superior performance to seemingly similar historic cartridges.

What kind of accuracy can I expect from the 30 Super Carry?
The cartridge has proven to be an exceptionally accurate round, typically exceeding the accuracy of other popular carry cartridges.

NOTE: These answers are provided by Federal, the ammunition manufacturer.

Currently there are Smith & Wesson and Nighthawk Custom pistols factory-chambered for the new 30 Super Carry cartridge. If this round catches on, expect to see Glock, Ruger, and SIG offer this chambering.

NEW 110 PCS Bolt-Action Pistol from Savage Arms

savage arms model 110 PCS pistol hunting mdt chassis bolt-action

Say what? Savage makes a bolt-action pistol similar to a Remington XP100? Yes, Savage Arms has entered the bolt-action pistol business with a new bolt-action pistol for hunters. The new bolt-action hunting rig, the Savage 110 PCS (Pistol Chassis System) boasts a short MDT chassis and comes with five chambering choices: .223 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, .300 AAC Blackout, .308 Win, and .350 Legend.

NEW Savage 110 PCS Pistol
savage arms model 110 PCS pistol hunting mdt chassis bolt-actionThe new Savage Arms 110 PCS bolt-action pistol features a Savage model 110 blueprinted action secured in a one-piece aluminum chassis from Modular Driven Technologies (MDT). The 110 PCS features a 10.5″ barrel, a user-adjustable AccuTrigger (2.5-6 lbs.), and AICS-style detachable box magazine. Initially the 110 PS will be offered in five (5) chamberings: .223 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, .300 AAC Blackout, .308 Winchester, and .350 Legend. We wish Savage offered this in a 6mmBR and 20 Practical chambering — that would provide more desirable options for varmint work. Overall length is 21.5″ and weight (before optics) is 5.625 pounds. MSRP is $999.00.

For better ergonomics, this rig has a left-hand bolt with right-side eject. The short MDT chassis has some nice features. It can fit most any AR15-compatible grip. And the 7″ Cerakoted modular fore-end boasts MLOK slots.

Savage is promoting the new 110 PCS as a hunting rig. The key advantage of a bolt-action pistol to a hunter is that the carry weight is much lower than typical rifles, but the gun can still shoot a potent rifle cartridge such as .308 Win.

Springfield Armory SA-35 NRA Publications’ Handgun of the Year

browning hi-power belgium SA-35 9mm pistol

Springfield Armory’s new 9mm SA-35 pistol has been chosen as the NRA’s American Rifleman Handgun of the Year, and 2022 Golden Bullseye Winner. The NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge important new products. The winners are selected by a committee of NRA Publications staff, representing more than a century of collective experience in the shooting and hunting industry.

Compared to the classic Browning Hi-Power pistol on which it is based, the new SA-35 offers enhanced controls, modern sights, improved feed ramp design, beveled mag-well, and increased 15-round capacity. Additionally, the SA-35 dispenses with the magazine disconnect as found in the original design. This provides the ability for magazines to drop freely. The new SA-35 also features forged steel parts for strength and durability.

“We are incredibly proud that the SA-35 has been given this prestigious award,” said Dennis Reese, CEO of Springfield Armory. “With this pistol, we have taken a revered design and updated it for today’s shooters.”

Springfield Armory SA-35 9mm Pistol

browning hi-power belgium SA-35 9mm pistol

Springfield Armory’s new SA-35 semi-auto pistol takes advantage of modern materials and manufacturing techniques, while retaining the appeal of the J.M. Browning’s original P-35 design. The 9mm features a forged carbon steel frame and slide and a cold hammer-forged barrel.

browning hi-power belgium SA-35 9mm pistol

Enhancements include subtle but significant changes to barrel feed ramp and extractor geometry to ensure the SA-35 will work with today’s defensive rounds. A factory-tuned trigger, 15-round flush-fit magazine, beveled magazine well, re-contoured “no-bite” hammer design, modern Tactical Rack sights, extended thumb safety and more round out the package. The SA-35 is compatible with the original pistol’s design, ensuring access to the broad selection of aftermarket parts and accessories available.

Guns America has done a thorough Review of the new Springfield Armory SA-35.

The modern SA-35 is based on the original Browning Hi-Power, aka the P-35. The Browning Hi-Power military pistol, considered the best 9mm handgun of all time by some collectors, is one of the most widely-used handguns in history, and is found in over fifty countries.

browning hi-power belgium SA-35 9mm pistol

The initial Browning Hi-Power design came from John Moses Browning, but was then finalized by Dieudonné Saive at Fabrique Nationale (FN) in Belgium. Browning died in 1926, several years before the design was finalized. There have been many variants based on the Browning Hi-Power and many clones as well. See: Top Ten 9mm Handguns of All Time.

New ZEISS LRP S5 525-56 First Focal Plane Scope — First Look

Jim See Accuracy Zeiss LRP S5 525-56 scope First focal plane PRS NRL 5-25x56mm unboxing field test

The past couple weeks we have had the privilege to test an impressive new First Focal Plane riflescope from ZEISS. Our tester, Jim See of Elite Accuracy LLC, received the ZEISS LRP S5 525-56 optic, Milrad version, and took a quick look at it. Jim was immediately impressed by the bright, clear markings on the turrets, and the positive clicks. He liked the lever-equipped zoom control, the positive zero-stop on the elevation knob, and he believed the lockable windage turret can have definite benefits in the field.

Jim See Accuracy Zeiss LRP S5 525-56 scope First focal plane PRS NRL 5-25x56mm unboxing field testAfter doing his first inspection, Jim quickly installed the LRP S5 525-56 on his 6mmBR PRS/NRL rifle, which features a red J. Allen Chassis and Impact Precision action. Jim placed the scope in high-quality Zeiss rings with integral bubble level. He then took the rig out into the field and completed an initial Tall Target test. That test confirmed the precision and repeatability of the 0.1 MRAD elevation and windage click values.

Jim also liked how positive the clicks felt with both elevation and windage knobs. Jim told us: “The scope operates well, it tracks well, and the turrets are accurate in their movements. All the functions work well — elevation, windage, parallax. This LRP scope has a quality feel — similar to other ZEISS products I have used.” Jim also noted that the ZEISS LRP S5 scope resisted solar flare very well: “This is important in PRS matches where we get that low sun in the afternoons”. Jim had high praise for the highly visible numbers on the dials: “With my eyes, I can’t read the numbers on most scopes, but with this ZEISS LRP S5 scope I CAN read the numbers.” Overall, Jim believed this ZEISS 5-25x56mm optic “will fit well in its intended market”, namely PRS/NRL and long range hunting.

Stay Tuned for Full Field Test of ZEISS LRP S5 525-56 Optic

The past few weeks Jim See has been testing the impressive new 5-25X ZEISS scope in the field, with the optic fitted on his PRS/NRL competition rig. Even in cold winter weather, the optic has performed very well, with positive adjustments and good results in the tall target test. Jim is now doing field tests with targets from 100 yards to 1200 yards and beyond.

To test ruggedness and weatherproofing, Jim is putting the Zeiss LRP through its paces in harsh winter conditions. He’s using a tripod here to keep off the snowy ground. The tripod mount also allows smooth traversing to view a wide selection of terrain and objects near and far.

Advanced Optical Technology — ZEISS LRP S5 Features

The ZEISS LRP S5 525-56 has many notable features, including a lockable windage turret, adjustable reticle illumination, and a HUGE amount of elevation travel — 40.7 Mils in the MIL model and 140 MOA in the MOA version. That gives this optic the ability to shoot at extreme range without requiring holdovers.

Sunday GunDay: New Guns for 2022 — Rifles and Handguns

Shooting Industry  new rifles howa carbon 2022

The new year is just six days away. Gun-makers around the world have developed interesting new pistols and rifles for introduction in 2022. Many of these new firearms will be on display at SHOT Show 2022 in Las Vegas. But we’ve scoured the internet for previews of notable new-for-2022 rifles and pistols. Here are some of the more interesting rifles and handguns to be introduced during the upcoming new year.

Daniel Defense — New Shorter Delta 5 Pro and DD5 SBR

Delta Defense Delta 5 Pro SBR

Daniel Defense will introduce new shorter, lighter-weight X5 model chassis rifles in 2022, along with an short-barreled DD5 SBR (short-barreled rifle) AR variant. The new X5s will be offered in 16″ and 18″ barrel lengths. Currently the Daniel Defense Delta 5 XBR Pro is sold in a variety of chamberings with 20″, 24″, or 26″ barrels. The new shorter-barreled models provide weight savings and should appeal to hunters who want a chassis-style rifle.

Nosler Model 21 with Carbon Composite Stock

Nosler’s new Model 21 rifle boasts a crisp, single-stage TriggerTech Field model trigger, with user-adjustable pull weight of 2.5–5 lbs. and top safety. The new Model 21 features a hand-lapped Shilen match-grade barrel with a threaded muzzle. The stock is a synthetic carbon-fiber composite model that is lightweight yet durable. The Model 21 features a spiral-fluted, one-piece, 4340 chromoly steel bolt that is Nitride-coated for smooth operation and corrosion resistance. The Model 21 is available chambered in 22 Nosler, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 26 Nosler, 27 Nosler, 280 Ackley Improved, 28 Nosler, .308 Win, .300 Win Mag, 30 Nosler, 33 Nosler and .375 H&H. With its light weight (under 7 lbs. without optics), Nosler’s new Model 21 should be popular with hunters.

Fierce Reaper Chassis Rifle with Carbon Components

The new Fierce Reaper (from Rizzini Arms) is a chassis rifle with a 1/2-MOA accuracy guarantee. This lightweight (6.5-pound) rifle was designed for mountain hunters and long-range precision shooters. The Reaper boasts lightweight carbon fiber components including carbon buttstock, M-Lok handguard, grip, and adjustable cheekpiece. This makes the $2895 Reaper one of the lightest chassis system rifles on the market. The gun is sold with a superb Bix’n Andy 1-3 lb. adjustable Dakota trigger. The bolt has a quick, 70-degree bolt throw. For weight savings, the Reaper features a C3 Carbon Fiber-wrapped, hand-lapped, cryo-treated stainless barrel with a threaded muzzle (suppressor-ready). Choose black, bronze, or Tungsten (grey) Cerakote finishes. Available chamberings are: 6MM Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 7MM Rem Mag, 28 Nosler, .308 Win, .300 Win, .300 PRC, and .300 RUM. Options include a Titanium action ($450) and Titanium muzzle brakes ($150-$195). And about that 1/2-MOA accuracy guarantee — for an extra $225, the maker will provide a certified 1/2-MOA target with specs on the ammo that produced it.

Rock Island Armory TM22

The new TM22 rifle from Rock Island Armory is a lightweight, semi-auto .22 LR with AR type ergonomics. The stock is made from 7075 airplane-grade aluminum for lightweight and durability. The modestly-priced TM22, sports an AR-type grip, commercial buffer tube adapter, top rail, and M-LOK fore-end. The rifle is set up with right-handed controls, but the TM22 can easily be modified for left-handed operation. Choose either an barrel version (34″ OAL) or a 20″ barrel model (36″ OAL). Both versions ship with two 10-round magazines with aftermarket 15- and 25-round magazines available. The 20″ model is 36″ OAL, and 18″ model is 34″ OAL.

Christensen Arms Ridgeline Scout Rifle (under 6 lbs.)

Shooting Industry SHOT Show new products 2021

With its 16″ barrel, the lightweight, compact Ridgeline Scout rifle from Christensen Arms is easy to carry and conceal in a blind. It also works great as a truck gun. The Ridgeline Scout features a black-Nitride coated action, 0-MOA optic rail, barricade stop, 10-round AICS drop-box magazine, and a flat-shoe Trigger Tech trigger. The barreled action fits in a modern tan and black carbon fiber composite Sporter stock. Weighing 5.9 pounds, the rifle is available in four chamberings: .300 BLK, .223 Rem., 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win. All chamberings have a 16″ muzzle-threaded barrel that will handle a suppressor.

Monza Bolt Action Rifle

Rock island tm22 rifle .22LR rimfire tactical

Here’s a new rifle from Istanbul, Turkey with many interesting features. The new Monza rifle offers a simple, lightweight, and reliable design. The bolt can be disassembled in the field without any tools. The rifle comes standard with fiber-optic blade front sight, and adjustable rear sight along with a scope rail. The button-rifled 4-groove barrel is offered in three lengths. The Monza features an adjustable comb and detachable magazine. The maker says the Monza “allows fast multiple shots with its perfect working mechanism and great balance.” With the Turkish currency moving downwards, we expect Monza rifles to be very affordable here in America.

Chiappa Nebula Rhino Revolver 30DS

Rock island tm22 rifle .22LR rimfire tactical

The eye-catching Chiappa Firearms Nebula Rhino 30DS revolver features a vivid, multi-color PVD coating on the metal plus a bright-colored laminated grip. This six-shot revolver is chambered for .357 Magnum and accepts .38 Special ammunition. Look carefully — you’ll see that the barrel bore is BELOW the centerline of the cylinder, at the 6 O’clock position. This may seem odd, but it has a significant advantage — this reduces muzzle rise very significantly. The sights are placed conventionally on the upper part of the forward frame/barrel housing. Standard are an adjustable rear sight and a fiber optic front sight. With a $1912.00 MSRP, this IS a pricey wheelgun, but it does ship with black leather holster, gun lock, and three moon clips. The grey/blue laminate ergonomic grip fits the hand well, with well-spaced finger grooves. To learn more about the Nebula Rhino 30DS visit www.chiappafirearms.com.

Springfield Armory SA-35 9mm Pistol

browning hi-power belgium SA-35 9mm pistol

Springfield Armory’s new SA-35 semi-auto pistol takes advantage of modern materials and manufacturing techniques, while retaining the appeal of the J.M. Browning’s original P-35 design. The 9mm features a forged carbon steel frame and slide and a cold hammer-forged barrel.

Enhancements include subtle but significant changes to barrel feed ramp and extractor geometry to ensure the SA-35 will work with today’s defensive rounds. A factory-tuned trigger, 15-round flush-fit magazine, beveled magazine well, re-contoured “no-bite” hammer design, modern Tactical Rack sights, extended thumb safety and more round out the package. The SA-35 is compatible with the original pistol’s design, ensuring access to the broad selection of aftermarket parts and accessories available.

The modern SA-35 is based on the original Browning Hi-Power, aka the P-35. The Browning Hi-Power military pistol, considered the best 9mm handgun of all time by some collectors, is one of the most widely-used handguns in history, and is found in over fifty countries.

The initial Browning Hi-Power design came from John Moses Browning, but was then finalized by Dieudonné Saive at Fabrique Nationale (FN) in Belgium. Browning died in 1926, several years before the design was finalized. There have been many variants based on the Browning Hi-Power and many clones as well. See: Top Ten 9mm Handguns of All Time.

silencerco evo suppressor can silencer light weight

SilencerCo’s new Harvester EVO is a lightweight suppressor designed for hunters and precision shooters. Evolved from SilencerCo’s Harvester 300, the new Harvester EVO suppressor is notable for its compact size and VERY light weight. Constructed with cobalt-6, inconel and 17-4 heat treated stainless steel, the new EVO weighs just 10.8 ounces (0.675 pounds) and retails for $680.00.

The Harvester EVO can work with chamberings from .223 Rem up to .300 Win Mag.
