Heckler & Koch’s VP-9B Joins The Family

The following is a Press Release from HK:

Columbus, Georgia — Introducing the newest option on the most ergonomic striker fired handgun available, the VP9-B in 9mm. Retail priced at $719, the VP9-B offers a new US-style reversible push button and utilizes the same magazines as the other VP9 Series. The new push-button style mag release option from HK means the VP doesn’t just fit your hand, it fits your shooting style as well.
In any firearm, especially a handgun, the many “touchpoints ”between the shooter and the firearm are critical to consistent, repeatable, performance. Now, no matter how you are built or how you shoot, the VP series just fits.
• Depending on your shooting style, you can choose between a European-style ambidextrous paddle mag release or the new US-style reversible button. This determination must be made at time of purchase, as the two models are not convertible.
• The most ergonomic, adaptable grip frame available allows you to interchange both backstraps and grip panels in 27 unique configurations to fit your  hand.
• The VP trigger is a real upgrade over the industry standard of many years. It has a short, light take-up with a solid, clean break; followed by a short, positive reset.
VP9-B models are made in HK’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany using all of the company’s advanced barrel manufacturing technologies and high level production of their machined steel slides, polymer frames, and all internal components. HK VP pistols are competitively priced and covered by Heckler & Koch’s lifetime warranty.

Press Release: XTech Tactical® Responds to Frivolous Lawsuit brought by Century Arms®

The following is a Press Release from XTech Tactical and has not been altered from their original letter:

September 27th, 2018

Mesa, AZ – In response to the frivolous lawsuit, Civil Action No. 9:18cv-81295 (S.D. FL), brought by Century International Arms, Inc.

XTech Tactical® will not relent its inherent and obvious rights to sell what is known to the market as the MAG47™. The complaint filed against XTech Tactical® contains a baseless claim of trade dress which is clearly an attempt to intimidate a much smaller and younger business.

XTech Tactical® was founded on and operates with the highest level of integrity and is extremely confident in its position. Furthermore, it is important to the company to set the precedent that it will not lay down to baseless threats, regardless of another entity’s size. XTech Tactical® has been preparing for the likelihood of a lawsuit since January of 2018 when Century Arms first sent a demand letter to Molded Devices, Inc., the manufacturer of the MAG47™.

Before XTech Tactical® begins the development or redevelopment of any product, it exhaustively studies the existence of preexisting intellectual property. During the research related to the MAG47™ project, it was discovered that no one controlling the US Palm brand owned any patents, proprietary designs, or other valid intellectual property related to US Palm’s AK47 rifle magazines.

The XTech Tactical® MAG47™ currently available in two configurations on www.xtechtactical.com is quickly being established as the single greatest US Made AK47 magazine in history. MSRP on the magazines range from $26.95-29.95. The company obsessively studied consumer feedback and requests related to the ideal AK47 magazine. From that study and substantial engineering effort came what is now, the MAG47™. XTech Tactical® strives and will always strive to be the leading company in the industry when it comes to hearing its customers’ and potential customers’ voices.

XTech Tactical® is co-title sponsoring Red Oktober in Utah October 6-7th and will also be exhibiting for the first time at SHOT Show booth 4164.

CMC Triggers Launches its 9mm Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC ) Single Stage Trigger

The following is a Press Release from CMC Triggers:


Fort Worth, Texas: Due to the rise in popularity of Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) rifles and after careful research and development, CMC Triggers has launched their own PCC Trigger. The CMC AR-15 / AR-10 9mm PCC Single Stage Drop-in Trigger, available in both “Classic” Curved Bow and CMC’s patented “Signature” Flat Bow, was designed with the highest caliber that one comes to expect from CMC Triggers.

The same CMC Trigger that has become respected for use in AR-15 and AR-10 style rifles can now be easily installed in PCC rifles. Previously, PCC rifles with a standard trigger installed had approximately a 50% trigger reset failure rate. CMC’s new PCC Trigger geometry design has overcome those earlier issues. The PCC Trigger’s hammer dimensions have been modified to facilitate the 9mm platform and ensure reliability with each pull of the trigger.The CMC Curved Trigger bow has an exceptionally smooth feel and ultra-clean break while the CMC Flat Trigger Bow renders a linear feel unsurpassed by any other trigger bow shape.

  • CMC AR-15 / AR-10 9mm PCC Single Stage Drop-in Trigger Features:
  • Single Stage Match Trigger
  • Ultra-crisp 3.5lb trigger pull with no creep prior to hammer release
  • Glass-smooth break with no feel of grittiness
  • Minimal lock time is designed into the assembly using controlled hammer weight and balance activated by a rocket wire hammer spring, assuring repeatable function with either commercial or military grade ammunition
  • Positive trigger reset allows a quick follow up shot on target
  • Trigger pull is factory pre-set and not user adjustable
  • Hand assembled, and hand tested
  • Totally self-contained one-piece assembly
  • Includes CMC Anti-Walk Pin Set
  • Fits MIL-SPEC AR-15 and AR-10 style rifles
  • Made from 8620 Alloy Steel and S7 Tool Steel with machined tolerances of +/– .001″
  • Trigger is easy to install following the instructions: follow link www.cmctriggers.com/installation-instructions

While PCC shooting has been around for a while, it has recently become popular for competition shooting. USPSA now allows the PCC to be used in matches. Carbines are easier to shoot fast, and easier to shoot accurately compared to handguns.  Many 3-Gun shooters have also found that shooting USPSA with a PCC is a good way to get rifle practice for 3-Gun.

CMC Triggers is the original maker and manufacturer of the Drop-in Trigger Group for the AR-15/10 rifle since 2003. CMC’s critical sear engagement surfaces have a propriety machining process that renders superior surface finish and dimensional control. As compared to their competition, the techniques used establish a 1-2 RMS surface finish as opposed to EDMing which leaves a pitty 32 RMS, compared to a mirror which is 0 RMS. CMC Triggers sear engagement overlap is six to eight times greater than their competitors. This provides a much safer trigger and enhances reliability.

All CMC products come with a Lifetime Warranty and are made in the U.S.A., CMC proudly designs all its products for Law Enforcement, Military and Civilian use.

July 28, 2018 for immediate release
Mesa, AZ- XTech Tactical, LLC an innovative firearms accessory manufacturer brings the MAG47© to market. In April of 2017 a prior manufacturer closed its doors which led to the opportunity that came available in August of 2017 for the magazine  redevelopment to begin.
The MAG47© is the most advanced, durable and reliable polymer magazine ever produced and is proudly Made in the USA, serving as 3 922r compliant parts.

The testing protocol was extensive, totally over 20,000 rounds without any magazine related failures. The protocol also included hundreds of drops, exposures to chemicals, climates, and abuse. The objective of the company was to not only make a strong consumer product, but to raise the bar for US polymer rifle magazines. “We had a very personal mission in this program to represent our country in making a product that not only was desirable to consumers, but
shows the world that the US can produce an AK magazine in line with the greatest AK magazines ever made from countries like Bulgaria and Russia.” stated Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales
and Marketing. The XTech Tactical team worked closely with an Arizona based foreign weapons trainer, former law enforcement officer and AK enthusiast, Tom Cornelius. Deadman stated,
“Tom was instrumental in every step of the MAG47©
becoming what it is today. We are very excited to partner with Tom and look forward to working with him on this and future programs.”
Additional announcements from the company to follow including the release of their new XMAG®, an easy loading 30rd AR magazine.

V Seven Weapon Systems .308 Magnesium Hyper-Light Handguards

For immediate release – Glendale, OR – V Seven Weapon Systems expands their line of Magnesium Hyper-Light Handguards to now include MLOK and KeyMod handguards for .308 (AR10/SR25) rifles.

With most .308 rifles weighing quite a bit more than their AR-15 counterpart, end users have been looking for ways to shed some weight wherever possible. The Hyper-Light family of hanguards are manufactured from a blended aluminum & magnesium alloy which yields an approximately 30% reduction in material weight compared to commonly used 6061 aluminum.

The 308 Hyper-Light Handguards are available in four different lengths which are 10.75”, 13.5”, 15” and 16.5” in both MLOK and KeyMod. The finish is a plasma deposition process that provides a tough ceramic-like coating with superior wear resistance compared to anodizing. Each 308 Hyper-Light Handguard comes with all required mounting hardware including a Grade 5 Titanium Barrel Nut, Barrel Nut Wrench and Screws.

For more information including weights for all rail lengths and additional photos, please follow the links below or give V Seven Weapons a call at 541-832-2179.
