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.

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?

Press Release: Streamlight launches Twin-Task USB Headlamp

The following is a Press Release from Streamlight:

USB Rechargeable Light Features Spot and COB Flood Modes; Delivers 375 Lumens

EAGLEVILLE, PA, January 4, 2018 – Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, announced its popular Twin-Task® line of work lights now includes a hands-free, rechargeable model, the Twin-Task® USB Headlamp.  The new light uses two unique LEDs to provide a spot beam or flood light, allowing for hands-free lighting for both distance and close-up applications. Delivering up to 375 lumens, it also features a built-in USB port for on-the-go recharging in the light.

The Twin-Task USB headlamp uses a traditional LED to provide spot lighting for distance illumination, while a new technology COB LED delivers a smooth, diffused flood light that reduces glare while filling a work area with light.

“With two light sources to choose from, the new Twin-Task USB brings the versatility of the handheld model to a headlamp,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “With its main beam for distance spotting and a COB Flood LED for working close up, automotive, industrial and other professionals always have just the right mode for their lighting needs. It also offers the convenience of USB recharging, or the option of quickly changing to a backup battery if a USB charging source isn’t available.”

The Twin-Task USB Headlamp features a rechargeable lithium ion battery which is located in a rear battery pack that is contoured for user comfort.  Its multi-function, push-button switch allows users to access five lighting modes. The Spot LED (with high, medium and low modes) ranges from 375 lumens and 4.75 hours of run time on high to 50 lumens and 20 hours on low.  The COB Flood LED has two modes: high, 250 lumens and a 5-hour run time; and low, 125 lumens and a 9.25-hour run time.

The headlamp features a low profile, ergonomically balanced design, including a 120 degree tilting head to reduce neck fatigue. With a body made of impact-modified nylon, the light weighs 6.1 ounces with the included battery. The light’s head bracket measures 2.67 inches long and the rear battery pack is 3.34 inches in length.

Featuring an IPX4 rating for water resistance, the Twin-Task USB Headlamp is water resistant to 2 meters.

Press Release: Phoenix Weaponry’s 45-70 Auto

The following is a Press Release from Phoenix Weaponry:
Phoenix Weaponry Logo

Phoenix Weaponry of Longmont Colorado is pleased to announce the launch of their .45-70 auto rifle platform.  That’s right, .45-70!  The classic round born in 1873 through the Springfield Armory and labeled “Government” and designed specifically for the Springfield Model 1893, or “Trapdoor Springfield”.  Phoenix Weaponry blown the lid off the marketplace with a unique twist to this classic cartridge as they have rebated the rim so that it can be adapted to a standard .308 bolt head and fired through a high pressure AR platform with shocking, sub MOA results, and a boosted performance curve.

45-70-auto

The standard rifle bears a 18” custom profiled Douglas barrel utilizing a 1:14 twist with 8 grooves.  Mated with a Phoenix Weaponry billet upper and lower, along with custom trigger and muzzle brake, this piece weighs in at just over 9 lbs.  Master gunsmiths have toiled to produce one of the most exciting rifle evolutions seen in the MSR industry since Stoner fielded the SP1, with the added benefit of delivering tremendous down rage punishment to anything that stands in its way.

Phoenix Weaponry 45-70

The beauty in the details is that this case, once rebated, can be reloaded easily using existing load information for the .45-70, based on Ruger No.1 loads, and the reloader can use standard .45-70 die sets with the exception of using a .308 shell holder.  Factory brass will be available shortly and available for purchase from Phoenix Weaponry.  Each rifle initially will be supplied with 50 pieces of brass to help the new user get started.

Immediate order slots are available now.  Rifle base price as advertised is $4,800 with a multitude of custom options that can be added to enhance your enjoyment of this weapon platform. Just call them and make your wish come true.
