Aimpoint Announces Limited Run of Micro T-2 Flat Dark Earth Sights

The following is a Press Release from Aimpoint, Inc:
Manassas, Virginia – March 15, 2018 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in reflex sighting technology, has announced the launch of a limited run of Micro T-2™ carbine ready sights in Flat Dark Earth (FDE) color. This is the first time the company has offered an FDE finished sight to the US market.

The sights are being finished with Cerakote ® H-Series surface coating – an advanced thin-film ceramic coating that bonds completely with the aluminum alloy housing of the sight. Cerakote ® finishes are known worldwide for their corrosion and chemical resistance, UV and thermal stability, and durability under extreme conditions.

 
“We needed to match our choice of color surface finish with the durability and performance of the Micro T-2 sight,” said Jonas Ardemalm, Director of Commercial Sales & Marketing at Aimpoint AB. “Cerakote ® offers an extremely durable coating that has been proven to perform under very demanding conditions, and it offers advantages beyond typical paint applications. We are very happy to offer this enhanced Micro T-2 to our customers in the USA.”
This initial run of FDE Micro T-2 sights is being offered on a test basis through a select group of authorized Aimpoint Dealers in the USA, and they are expected to sell out quickly.

About Aimpoint
Aimpoint produces a complete line of high quality reflex sights for use by military, law enforcement, hunters, and sport shooters worldwide.

Primary Weapons Systems Releases Multiple New Product Lines at SHOT Show

The following is a Press Release from Primary Weapons Systems:

Primary Weapons Systems released multiple new product lines and updates at SHOT Show last month.

Starting with the MOD 1-M line (replacing the MK1 MOD 1-P line) with M-LOK handguards and Radian Raptor charging handles. Keeping the internals the same, the MK1 MOD 1-M line got a simple facelift. To match that, the MK2 MOD 1-M line also got M-LOK handguards and Radian Raptor charging handles.

Past the more expected updates, we take a look at the MK1 MOD 2-M line which replaces the MK1 MOD 2 line. The MK1 MOD 2-M line features not just an M-LOK handguard, but their patent pending PicLok handguard. Yes, it offers M-LOK along the entire length of the handguard, but also offers Picatinny in the front quarter of the rail. What sets the PWS MK1 MOD 2-M handguards apart, is the fact that M-LOK accessories direct thread into the handguard, meaning you don’t use the back T-nut of the accessory. This allows the shooter’s rail to truly stay as slim as possible while still offering a variety of mounting options. In addition to the PicLok handguard, the MK1 MOD 2-M line includes the Radian Raptor charging handle and Radian Talon safety selector.

For PWS customers wanting to do a quick handguard swap, we have good news! Handguards will be available as standalone items, so you can easily swap your current PicMod to PicLok.

The ALPHA line of rifles, easily differentiated by the FDE anodizing, was designed specifically for military use, but will be available for civilians. A few features of the ALPHA line are the heavier barrel profile, 1:7 barrel twist rate and gas adjustment knob in front of the handguard.

The last big release from PWS was the new PCC line in 9mm. Using a straight blowback system, taking GLOCK mags and having last round bolt hold open, PWS expects the PCC line to be a popular addition to their current offerings.

The PWS website is currently being rebuilt, but will be live by mid-February. In the meantime, customers can contact sales@primaryweapons.com for questions and purchasing.

Morale Patches of the 2018 SHOT Show

Patch Collection and Photo Credit: Tyson Wahrmund

I first learned of Moral Patches when I was in Iraq in 2004.  The patches were usually cheesy and poorly made, but they have come a long way.  Morale patches and the firearms/tactical industry have become almost synonymous.  Patches typically come in either of the embroidered variety or of the PVC variety, though some patch makers have expanded the medium to include leather and even glass and almost all Velcro backed.  Each medium have their appeal and each offers their own unique qualities and downfalls.  Preference is usually based on an individuals personal taste and style.  Some individual collections are small and some are astronomical.

SHOT Show is not immune to a vast variety of morale patch collections and many patches are only offered during the show by either manufacturers or enthusiasts.  Throughout the show I will attempt to collect as many different patches available and post them here for all to see.  At the end of each day, this post will be updated with the days take, so check back for an updated list.   The patches will not be in any specific order and I will try my best to include who the patch came from and a link to their site.

Let everyone know what your favorite patch of the 2018 SHOT Show is by commenting on the Facebook post.

LanTac-USA announces the E-CTG9 Trigger for Glock

It appears that LanTac-USA is releasing a Glock Trigger at SHOT Show 2018 (Booth 20652).  There is not currently any information on their webpage, however, the following is a press release regarding the new trigger.


The following is a Press Release from LanTac-USA:

Precision Upgrade Trigger for Glock 17, 19 Gen 1-3 & Gen4 Pistols.

The Ultimate drop in trigger for your pistol, the E-CTG9™ trigger can be configured for Carry (Self Defense) or Competition (Target) use and comes complete with our improved trigger spring kit so you can set the ultimate trigger pull on your handgun.

The trigger housing features our SSR (Super Short Reset) 3.5Lb Connector that delivers the same trigger profile as the factory unit but is highly polished and re shaped to reduce friction and create a much smoother, lighter more consistent pull.

This connector makes super fast reset of the trigger possible, allowing for very quick follow up shots and reduced friction means less resistance for smooth operation.

Our Trigger Bar is manufactured from a proprietary blend of 420 Stainless Steel and polished to produce an ultra smooth hard wearing surface that reduced friction and trigger pull interference as it operates against the connector and internally against the pistol frame.

The included spring kit comes with the following parts to assist in reducing trigger pull further.

x1 4.0Lb Firing Pin Spring (For Target, Competition & Sporting Use)

x1 6.0Lb Firing Pin Spring (For Carry & Self Defense Use)

X1 6.0Lb Increased Power Trigger Spring

x1 Reduced Power Firing Pin Safety Spring & Ultra Smooth Safety Plunger.

Springs are manufactured from the highest grade piano wire and tempered for the best service life.

Each spring is calibrated to deliver consistent force through the entire compression cycle for reliable operation every time the pistol is fired.

With nearly 30% more power our Trigger Spring actually reduces the pull weight by as much as 1Lb.

The lower power Firing Pin Safety Spring reduces friction caused by the firing pin plunger engaging with the trigger bar and creates a much smoother operation of the parts.

The Triggers Pivot Pin and Trigger Bar position has been carefully considered to deliver maximum leverage with minimum force and the hybrid bow face is a perfect blend of curved and flat surfacing that delivers comfort with improved ergonomics and finger positioning.

The bow is precision machined from certified 7075-T6 aluminum and hard coat anodized Type3 Class2 Black.

Triggers are assembled in house and come with our lifetime warranty against defects in manufacture.

MSRP $185.00

Franklin Armory Reformation 11.5″ Non-NFA “Firearm”?

Just received information on a new “firearm” from Franklin Armory called the Reformation.  The Reformation is not considered a “rifle” or a “shotgun” and though it touts an 11.5″ bbl, it does not require a tax stamp.  In their description, the “gun” shows that there is a stock attached, so it is not a “pistol”.   Does anyone have more information how this works?
