SHOT Show 2017 - Hexmag 20 Round .308 Magazine-1000

First teased at last years SHOT Show, Hexmag showed off their production model 20 round .308 HX-SR25 Magazines.  The MSRP will be $24.99 and they should be shipping within the next 30 days.

SHOT Show 2017 - Hexmag Rubber Overmold Grip-1000
Hexmag is also offering a Rubber Over Mold Grip in addition to their Advanced Tactical Grip, which is already on the market.  The MSRP is $TBD and should be available within the next 30 days.

SHOT Show 2017 - Hexmag Clear AR15 Magazine-1000

Hexmag is also going to offer a clear Hexmag 30 Round AR15 Magazine, but the pricing and release date are both TBD.

Hexmag also had another “in the works” project at SHOT that they wished to keep close hold and not to be disclosed.  I will honor that request.  Unfortunately at least one person did not honor that request and has posted the information out on the interwebs.  Though they may have gotten “first dibs” on the story, they have also proven that they cannot be trusted with future industry close hold information.

SHOT 2017 – CMC Triggers

CMC-Triggers

CMC Triggers has stepped outside of the box this year with their line of triggers dedicated for the AR platform of rifles and has entered into the Glock Trigger Market.

SHOT Show 2017 - CMC Triggers Glock Trigger 002-1000

The trigger, called the CMC Glock Trigger Gen 1, will be available around mid-March 2017 for a cost in the ballpark of $175.  The trigger will be available for both Gen 3 and Gen 4 Glocks, will offer a 5# trigger pull and will have the same trigger safety functionality as a standard Glock trigger.  One cannot mistake the unique look of the CMC flat trigger and it translates well over to the Glock trigger.

Battle Arms Development had a lot to announce for 2017.

Aside from their typical BADass painted weapons, like this Iron Man AR-15…
SHOT Show 2017 - Battle Arms 003-1000

…they also had the “300 PDW” in .300 BLK that was nicknamed “Woody”.

SHOT Show 2017 - Battle Arms 300 PDW with wood furniture 001-1000

This PDW features a real wood handguard attachment and pistol grip and a faux wood cheekweld.

BAD has developed a currently unnamed 10″ handguard weighing in at 7.3 oz with a $TBD MSRP.

BAD has also partnered up with TriggerTech to introduce the B.A.D. edition trigger.

SHOT Show 2017 - Battle Arms TriggerTech Trigger 001-1000

This fully adjustable trigger (2.5-5#) comes in either a straight/flat or curved variant.  The adjustment can be made while the trigger is installed by using an allen wrench on the rear of the top of the trigger housing.

SHOT Show 2017 - Battle Arms TriggerTech Trigger 002-1000

BAD also introduced an Ultra Compact 4.75″ Pistol Buffer Tube (sorry no photo available).  The Tube uses the same buffer as the BAD Vert Stock.  The MSRP for the tube and buffer is $225.

BAD is also working on some California Compliant gear.  They are working on a variant of their lightweight billet lower receiver with a integrated magazine release plunger.

SHOT Show 2017 - Battle Arms CA Compliant 002-1000
Note the plunger on the top of the lower receiver (silver dot).

When depressed (i.e. the upper receiver firmly seated against the lower), the plunger will not allow the magazine release button to be depressed.  BAD has developed a rear take-down pin that when turned in one direction and pulled out, will allow the upper receiver to crack open slightly to allow for the magazine release button to be depressed while disabling the firearm.

SHOT Show 2017 - Battle Arms CA Compliant 003-1000

The rear take-down pin can also be turned the other direction and pulled out to allow the upper receiver to open fully.  This is all still in the process of being designed and approved for legal compliance.

SHOT 2017 – Elite Tactical Systems Group

ets-group

Elite Tactical Systems (ETS) Group has made some introductions of new magazines at the 2017 SHOT Show that will be sure to catch a little bit of attention.

SHOT Show 2017 - ETS Group MP5 Magazines -1000

First, ETS announced a clear polymer version of MP5 magazines in 30, 20 and 10 round capacity.

SHOT Show 2017 - ETS Group Glock G42 and G43 Magazines-1000

Secondly, ETS also announced a clear polymer version of both Glock Model G42 and G43 magazines in 6, 9 and 12 round capacities.  The 9-round model provides a natural and comfortable place for the “pinky” finger to rest due to the smaller nature of these handguns.

SHOT Show 2017 - ETS Group Compression Adaptable Magazine Loader (CAML)-1000

Lastly, ETS has developed the CAML.  CAML being an acronym, stands for “Compression Adaptable Magazine Loader”.  As pictured above, the small “follower” portion on the right side is slid off of the rail system.  The user takes the CAML and slides the rail portion along the head side of ammunition casing as it is seated inside of the ammunition tray in rows.  The user then lifts those rounds out of the tray and reattaches the “follower” on top of the ammunition and in “stripper clip” style, presses the ammunition into the magazine.  The CAML is currently only being produced for 9mm pistol magazines.  The beauty of the CAML is that it is said to work with all 9mm magazines, regardless if it is single or double-stack.  It is currently in the production phase and you should see it around mid-to-late-March 2017.

The pricing on all of their new magazines and the CAML have yet to be determined.
