Their 10.5- or 12-inch, cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrels have a 1:7 twist, carbine- and pistol-length gas systems optimized to reach the highest level of performance out of each cartridge in terms of accuracy and reliability.


Each AR pistol variant has an M-LOK-equipped rail, fixed low-profile stainless-steel gas block, FN combat trigger weighing in between 4.5-7.75 lbs. and includes an SBX-K™ Pistol Stabilizing Brace that make these little carbine-caliber pistols a breeze to shoot.

Maintaining the distinguishing features of the FN 15 Tactical series are the 3-prong flash hider found on the FN SCAR rifles that reduces flash, mid-length gas system and H1 buffer that decreases recoil, a B5 grip, buttstock and 12.5-inch P-LOK rail with M-LOK accessory mounting system.

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.

Aimpoint announces the new CompM5

London, England – September 12, 2017 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in reflex sighting technology, has announced the addition of the new Aimpoint® CompM5™ sight to their professional product line. Powered by a single AAA battery, and weighing just 147 grams (5.19 ounces), the CompM5 takes its place as the most compact optic in the Aimpoint® Comp™ Series family of sights.

Aimpoint_CompM5

Originally created to meet the needs of a specific official end user, the CompM5 is now being offered for sale worldwide as contract commitments and production levels permit. The compact size of the CompM5 was made possible by the sight being powered by a single AAA battery. These small and lightweight batteries are inexpensive and easy to find almost anywhere in the world. Readily available alkaline versions of the AAA simplify logistics, and eliminate the potential shipping hazards inherent in lithium batteries. Like the other Comp Series sights, the CompM5 boasts an extremely long battery life – with over 5 years of constant-on use at intensity level seven.

Aimpoint_CompM5 2

The CompM5 is fully submersible up to 45 meters (150 feet), and is compatible with all generations of Night Vision Devices, as well as Aimpoint’s professional magnifier line. A military grade optical lens system gives the CompM5 exceptional light transmission and dot clarity, making the sight operationally parallax free, and providing a crisp, clear dot even under magnification.

Aimpoint_CompM5 4

“The Aimpoint Comp Series has been established as the worldwide standard for military grade reflex sights for over 20 years. The new CompM5 sight provides professional end users the same levels of performance provided by our full-sized sights in a much more compact optic,” said Lennart Ljungfelt, President of Aimpoint AB. “This new product saves size and weight for the operator, with no sacrifice in overall performance.”

  • Aiming Dot Size: 2+/- 0.5 MOA
  • Battery Type: One AAA size 1.5V Alkaline LR03 or Lithium FR03
  • Battery life – Day Time Use: 5 years (50,000 hours) of continuous use at position 7, more than 1 year at position 8 and more than 10 years at NVD-setting (position 1-4).

Historic Handgun Innovation from Graham Combat

I will preface this post with the disclaimer that I have ZERO affiliation with nor do I do work for Matt Graham or Graham Combat, so this write up is non-solicited.
 
I took a training class from Matt Graham earlier this year during a closed LE course.  During the course I had a closed-door meeting with Matt along with one other LEO with a verbal NDA regarding the contents of the meeting.

I guess the proverbial cat is out of the bag as Graham Combat just released the video below.
I encourage you to watch the video, though it is almost 15 minutes in length.  I know that attention spans are usually too short to watch that length of video, but it is worth the view.
cropped-G_gren_black-270x270
Matt has developed an entirely new ideology and platform for handgun sighting systems.  I believe that this system will be commonplace in the future, but will take a while for all manufacturers to get on board.
As the video shows, when shooters get their hands on a handgun with this shooting system, the response is usually the same.  Though I may have been a little more animated in my response that may or may not have included a few “holy shit’s” and “what the fu**’s” in there.
Breach Bang Clear attends a Graham Combat pistol course.

I have been a shooter for over two decades and have worked within the firearms industry  for over half of that.  I have spent the past seven years attending  SHOT Show and having a first hand account of new products, including a lot that have never made it to market.

In my absolute honest opinion, this is near the top of the list of the most innovative and ingenious ideas to hit the firearms industry since I have been involved.  The below video is good and explaining how the sighting system works, but  does not do justice to having it in your hand and seeing the sights for the first time.

I cannot wait to get a platform in my hand with this sighting system installed.  TOTAL.GAME.CHANGER!

 Matt does a great job in the video explaining the nuances of how the system works, so I will leave it up to him.
