SilencerCo + SSVI | HK® VP9®

After collaborating with some of the most respected gunsmiths and manufacturers of the firearms industry, SilencerCo enriches the Summit program with an SSVi™ signed project.

“The HK® VP9® is an ergonomically-friendly yet classically-German pistol that combines comfort with utilitarianism. When Damon Young from SSVi™ first got his hands on one, this death metal drummer turned artisan knew he had to make it his own.

SilencerCo teamed up with the self-proclaimed Modern Day Mjolnir to create one of the most iconic Summit packages to date. Not only does it feature hand crafted customization by SSVi and no-two-alike finishing by Blowndeadline – this package also includes a silencer that you can’t buy anywhere else: the Osprey 9K.

Look through the images to see for yourself how perfectly these elements came together to create one of the most unique Summit packages.”

Beretta Releases APX Striker Fired Pistol

Beretta APX 9mm Striker Fired Pistol Urban Survivor

Striker fired pistols are becoming an important segment worldwide for the Military & Law Enforcement sector. The Beretta APX, utilizing a removable, serialized chassis frame, can be easily modified with a replaceable grip frame housing and is simple to disassemble and maintain. The lightweight frame housing is made of fiberglass reinforced technopolymer.

Beretta APX 9mm Striker Fired Pistol Urban Survivor

The APX’s extremely low profile and snag free design make it easy to carry and draw from a holster. Ease of use was the key driver in the development of the APX. A slide catch lever is located on both sides of the frame. The operating/locking system is based on a tilt-barrel, locked breech. Beretta APX pistols have a unique feature that allows the user to deactivate the internal striker mechanism prior to disassembly. This means the pistol can be field stripped without pulling the trigger.

Beretta APX 9mm Striker Fired Pistol Urban Survivor

The Trigger Safety stops the trigger from traveling rearward through inertia, in the event the pistol is dropped. When the trigger is intentionally pulled, the Trigger Safety is instantly deactivated. Frame safety, magazine safety, and a loaded chamber indicator are available on request. To accommodate right or left-handed use, the APX’s magazine release button can be easily reversed.

Beretta APX 9mm Striker Fired Pistol Urban Survivor

The high-definition 3-dot sight system is designed for quick target acquisition. The new sight system, patented by Beretta, allows the user to adjust both front and rear sights. The sights can be removed for replacement with other types of sights. Thanks to a newly patented modular system, the pistol adapts to different hand sizes with interchangeable back-straps of different thickness and configuration for individualized performance. The pistol comes with a standard Picatinny rail (MIL STD 1913) under the barrel.

The APX should be officially announced for the US market at the NRA Show.

SHOT Show 2017 | Trijicon

At SHOT Show 2017, Trijicon displayed the new optics for this year: the new MRO Patrol, the new AccuPower 1-8, the new MGRS and the line of Thermal optics.

MRO Patrol

The new Trijicon MRO Patrol is a modified version of the MRO red dot sight. It features an objective cover and a anti-reflective device and comes from the factory with an ocular lens cover.

AccuPower 1-8 x 28

The new Trijicon AccuPower is a versatile variable low power optic with a first focal plane reticle. The 1 power setting is a true 1x and allows the user to engage the target with both eyes open. The clarity of the optic combined with the high power of 8x allows for very accurate engagements even at distance. The optic’s reticle and adjustments are available both in MIL and MOA.

MGRS (Machine Gun Reflex Sight)

The Trijicon MGRS is designed to be mounted on 249, 240, M134 or on the “Ma Deuce”. I features a very large (both in width and height) 1 x obejective lens which provides and extremely wide field of view. To the MGRS there can be attached a flippable magnified optic.

Trijicon New Thermal Optics

2016 has been a very big year for thermal optics; the price has decreased and the technologies become more compact, lightweight and reliable. 2017 seems to also be a very promising year for the thermal optic segment of the tactical/hunting market with the entry of big players such as Trijicon and other competitors. Trijicon has displayed on the show’s floor some products, showing the interested in pursuing both the Clip-On and the Standalone segments.

CZ | New P10-C

CZ released a new 9mm striker fired pistol with a similar design to the previous double action P07. The P10-C fits between the full-size and the compact size and holds 15 rounds.

CZ P10C CZ P10 C

CZ seems to have taken inspiration from the modifications that users did to their pistols, from the stippling job on the frame to the front serrations and cuts on the slide and the use of night sights. The trigger is very crisp and light with a “dynamic duty” feel to it and the reset is extremely short.


Daniel Defense | New DDM4V7 Line

At SHOT Show Daniel Defense displayed their new V7 rifle line for 2017. They have added three variants of the DDM4 V7 (which was introduced to the market last year at SHOT): the shorter V7 S, the lighter V7 LW and the competition-focused V7 PRO . We also had a chance to try them at the range events.

The V7s is 11.5″ barrel SBR chambered in 223. It features a shorter version of the Daniel Defense V7 M-Lok handguard.


20170116-shotshow2017_danieldefense_ddm4v7_lw Daniel Defense DDM4V7 LW Daniel Defense DDM4V7 LW Daniel Defense DDM4V7 LW

Very similar to the DDM4V7, the LightWeight version features a lighter and slimmer barrel profile but still keeps the 16″ lenght of ve standard V7.

The DDM4V7 Pro is a longer 18″ barrel rifle. The V7 Pro comes standard with a heavier barrel profile and a muzzle device that delivers an extremely flat and almost recoil-less shooting experience.

Steiner | New Red Dot Sights and Products for 2017

Steiner RX1:

Steiner has released images for the newest addition to their tactical and military line of weapon optics. The newest addition is a no-magnification RDS with a wide field of view, the R1X.

steiner-r1x steiner-r1x-1

Steiner RX1-L:

Together with the R1X Steiner has released images of the R1X-L, a variant that incorporates RDS and laser in one single device. This design will allow the user not only to simplify the zeroing of the rifle, but also slim down the profile of the rifle by not having a laser device mounted on the hand-guard of the rifle. The use of short barrel rifles in close quarters usually compromises the ability of the operator to comfortably configure light and lasers on the weapon, the fact that Steiner has integrated two key components in one single device provides more flexibility to the user.

steiner-r1x-l steiner-r1x-l-1

Steiner DBAL-PL:

The DBAL-PL incorporates four low-light/no-light elements in one single compact device: 400 Lumen white light, Green visible laser, IR laser and IR illuminator. The two switches allow to engage either white light and visible laser or IR illuminator and IR laser. The compact package is designed to fit on a sidearm.

(Also notice the new Beretta APX, the newest striker-fired pistol chambered in 9mm from the Italian manufacturer)

Steiner SBAL-PL:

Similar in design to the DBAL-PL the Steiner SBAL-PL features a 500 Lumen white light and a green visible laser.

Kevin Brittingham’s New Silencer and Firearms Company | The Q and the Honey Badger


We have been following with great admiration in regards of engineering and design capabilities. On their Instagram account they have been posting some images of very interesting new products, from silencers to firearms and furniture. One of the most significant introduction is the “Honey Badger” a re-engineered version of the AR15 specifically designed to be chambered in 300 Blackout. For what we know (and what we can tell from the pictures) the main features of this rifle are the silencer (Integrally suppressed design) and the stock/buffer tube assembly. Since the gun will only be available in 300 BLK the addition of a proprietary buffer spring and stock may be a key detail in order to provide extraordinary performance.

kevin_brittingham_q_silencers_honeybadger_300blk-6 kevin_brittingham_q_silencers_honeybadger_300blk-5kevin_brittingham_q_silencers_honeybadger_300blk-2kevin_brittingham_q_silencers_honeybadger_300blk-3kevin_brittingham_q_silencers_honeybadger_300blk-1

The company seems to be bringing some very interesting mounting solutions for silencers. From the photos posted on their Instagram Account the Q seems to be introducing itself also in the 7.62 rifle segment.

kevin_brittingham_q_silencers-6 kevin_brittingham_q_silencers-4 kevin_brittingham_q_silencers-1

From some photos it is possible to see the internal design of the silencer, also compared to a Sig Silencer. The device itself seems to be very lightweight, a feature in which Mr. Brittingham strongly believes.

kevin_brittingham_q_silencers-5 kevin_brittingham_q_silencers-7 kevin_brittingham_q_silencers-2

We are really looking forward to have a chance to see and try these products. In the past Mr. Brittingham’s designs have never let our expectations down, he and his team really know what’s up.

All of the photos in this article were taken from @the_official_q and @kevinbrittingham Instagram accounts. The information contained in this post is based on unconfirmed rumors in the industry.

Kinetic Development Group Sidelok Modular Optic Mount

smom-3os-small Kinetic Development Group has once again brought a much needed solution to the market through the Sidelok line. This latest addition allows the user to quickly change optics throughout various weapon platforms with ease and without losing accuracy.

 The new KDG Modular Optic Mount is based off the proven Sidelok family of quick detach optic mounts, and features the same user-friendly, toolless design. KDG set out to design a Sidelok mount for all common, tube-style optics that will offer more user-configurable options than what is currently available from competing QD mounts. The Modular Optic Mount currently comes in three configurations, with ring sizes for 1”, 30mm and 34mm tubes.

smom-2os-small The mount is offered with a user removable cantilever bar, in which the rings securely mount. This bar runs parallel to the weapon’s bore, and is ideal for all semi and fully automatic carbines, rifles and DM style firearms. KDG plans to release a separate 20 MOA bar in the future, for those that might require the added elevation for particular optic or application.

 The matched front and rear rings are CNC machined, and wire EDM cut to be as precisely concentric as possible. The upper and lower ring remain matched for the duration of its production, and feature witness marks for assembly in the form of recessed dots. This allows the user to match the proper ring to its base, and ensure the mount is as truly aligned as possible. The rings themselves can be adjusted forward or back to the user’s preference, to avoid interference with large front objective bells, turret adjustment knobs, and rear magnification adjustment collars. The rings themselves bolt into a track system to facilitate this adjustment. The same track system allows the user to purchase and install separate rings in the future, should they decide to change to an optic with a larger or smaller diameter tube. This feature will save the shooter or organization money, as the majority of cost is in the base of the unit.

smom-1os-small The SMOM is available for three different scope diameters: 34mm, 30mm, 1″.

ShotShow2016: SilencerCo

SilencerCo Radius Shot Show SWR or SilencerCo Weapon Research has now released the RADIUS. This is an affortable and user-configurable rangefinder with an accurate effective range of up to a mile. It runs for 12 hours with only 2 CR123A and can be mounted non 1913 rails both horizontally and vertically. One of the main features is that it does the user to check the range without taking the hand off the weapon system. The MSRP is only $999.


Do we need to say more?

This is the prototype of the Maxim 9 integrally suppressed pistol made by SilencerCo. Since last year they have made some changes to the project. The Maxim 9 is no longer based off of a Smith and Wesson M&P9, instead they have decided to design a platform from the ground up; it now holds Glock magazines.

The SilencerCo Hybrid is probably the quietest suppressor we have ever tried. The key feature of this product is the versatility, it can be used with so many calibers that we will soon write an article about it.  02Silencerco06 02Silencerco05PSilencerCo Hybrid ShotShow2016

The Omega 9K is also an incredibly quiet silencer. Its design features a compact 5″ length and a feather-light 8.8 ounces but can still provide hearing safe dB with a 9mm pistol, SMG or 300 Blk rifle. Versatile, small and short but still full-auto rated hearing safe.

The Omega is also an incredibly quiet suppressor, it was mounted on a 300 blk AR-15 and we think it could be around 120 dB.

The Osprey Micro is probably one of the most fun to shoot. Even the biggest warriors on the planet cannot hold a smile while shooting with this suppressor on a 22 LR pistol or carbine.

ShotShow2016: M+M Industries

One of the most innovative products displayed at Shot Show, this year, came from M+M industries. The American AK manufacturer is now presenting on the market the next step in the evolution of the Kalashnikov’s design. We haven’t had the chance to shoot this rifle yet, but form an engineering point of view it seems to be very promising, with increased reliability, accuracy and attachment options.

M+M Industries Shot show 2016 Magpul AK - M10 M10X Elite

The M10, the previous version of this rifle, was sent to more the 250 experts in 2015 for a field test. Now, the M+M engineers have made some minor changes and adjustments based on the feedback they have received. This platform will be available in 7.62 x 39mm.

The difference between this product and other US-manufactured AK platforms is that instead of jamming an AK mag into an AR15 (we have seen these atrocities way to much at the show this year) or just rebuilding the AK with almost the same processes used in Soviet Russia in the 50s they have adapted the Kalash concept to the production systems of the 21st century. New technologies, like for example 3-axes CNC machining, allow the production of fewer but more complicated components, reducing slacks and weak points. This is a lighter, easier to maintain, more accurate and more reliable system that still fires the 7.62 x 39 round.

As you can see from the image below these are the components of the two weapon systems, on the right is the standard-design AK and the left is the new M+M model 10X.

ShotShow2016: Daniel Defense

Shot Show Daniel Defense 15 years

2001-2016 Daniel Defense has been manufacturing high-quality firearms for 15 years, both for military and civilian markets. This year at Shot Show they have launched their anniversary rifle to commemorate this milestone. This product will be available in 223 for around $ 3000.

Shot Show Daniel Defense 15 years Shot Show Daniel Defense 15 years

Along with the “Fifteen Years” rifle they have released the brand new DDM4 V7. This rifle comes in 5.56 NATO with a 16″ cold hammer forged barrel and 1:7″ rifling twist. The V7 features also the new MFR x5 rail systems with M-Lok and QD sling attachment points. On the range this rifle seems perfectly balanced. The mid-length gas system, the DD improved flash suppressor and the weigh just over 6 lb really deliver an incredible shooting experience.

The other new rifle that has debuted at the show was the DDM4 ISR Gen2 in 300 Blk. The Integrally Suppressed Rifle features a 9″ barrel with a pistol length gas system and 1:8″ rifling twist. Although the barrel length is under 16″ the ISR is not to be considered an SBR due to the fact that the suppressor installed is welded in position; so instead of a two tax stamps it needs only one. The rail system is MFR XL with KeyMod interface and it covers almost the whole barrel+suppressor length providing better control for weapon manipulation and more space for accessories. The MSRP of the ISR Gen2 in 300 blk is $3050.

BCM | 300 Blackout

Bravo Company Manufacturing has released a full line of 300 Blackout carbines and upper receivers. With this latest addition, BCM has officially entered the 300 blk segment of the firearm industry. The many similarities in the components of the weapon platform between .223 (or 5.56) and 300 Blackout allow an easy and cost effective caliber conversion.

BCM Bravo Company 300 BLK

In the past few years we have seen many other companies  entering the 300 Blk market; we are very glad to see one of the best firearms manufacturer following the same steps. BCM will be offering the 300 Blackout upper receiver in 16″ RECCE, 12.5″ CQB and 10″ Pistol lengths.

300 Blackout SAAMI specs

Approved by SAAMI on 17 January, 2011, Supersonic 300 AAC Blackout 110-125 grain 300 Blackout ammunition was designed to produce a similar ballistic effect on target of a 7.62 x 39 mm round but out of a 9″ barreled AR platform carbine. At 300 meters, 300 Blackout has 16.7% more energy than a 7.62 x 39mm round. A supersonic round fired from a 9″ barreled AR pattern 300 Blackout carbine will match or exceed the energy at the muzzle of a 14.5″ 5.56 M4 carbine.

BCM Bravo Company 300 BLK

BCM 300 Blackout carbines use the exact same components, down to the magazines, as the rest of our carbine fleet with the exception of the barrels. This also means an end user can utilize both their existing magazines and AR accessories to fine tune the feel of their carbine, same as any other M4 or Recce rifle.

BCM Bravo Company 300 BLK

The 300 Blackout line of BCM carbines are built on our 1:7 Twist 11595E Certified Steel barrels. The bore on each BCM Enhanced Barrel is honed to perfect the rifled finish prior to chrome lining both bore and chamber. With a continuous taper profile designed to optimize balance, performance and weight; each BCM barrel is fluted toward the rear near chamber, increasing strength and speeding heat dissipation. Barrel harmonics and accuracy have been further improved by removing the sharp handguard cap shoulder commonly associated with AR platform barrels. Reliable, mil-spec quality, BCM Enhanced Barrels will deliver a repeated positive effect on target, every time you press the trigger.

Magpul M-LOK System





In late 2007 Magpul Industries Corp developed the Masada Concept Rifle that featured a polymer hand guard with three elongated vent holes that acted as a negative mounting surface for accessory rails.


These slots became one of the first “negative space” attachment systems that allowed the user to put mounting rails only where they were needed, as opposed to covering the entire surface with mounting rails, which are then covered with panels. The system also
allowed direct mounting of accessories, such as fore-grips and flashlights, with no rail interface needed.
In 2009 the MOE hand guards for the common AR15/M16 firearms were released, bringing the same slot system, along with rails, flash light mounts, grips and other accessories to the mainstream.
In the years since the MOE slot system has been released, several million MOE slot compatible accessories have been produced. Initially introduced as a Magpul-specific system, several other companies have built MOE slot compatible accessories in the years
since its release.
The MOE system was never officially released as an open standard, and the requirement to have access to the back side of the mounting surface limited its application.
Additionally, depending on the accessory item, the spacing increments were not always small or uniform enough for desired placement. These characteristics made MOE slots and accessories less ideal to use with free-float hand guards, which did not allow
back side access to the mounting surface. Rather than documenting and publishing the existing MOE slot information and weld nut system, Magpul engineers used this opportunity to substantially improve the feature set of the MOE system. The result is the M-LOK.

M-LOK stands for Modular Lock system. The M-LOK system retains an elongated slot appearance, similar to MOE slots (with different dimensions). The new slot is larger, has squared sides, and the new system adds the following feature set: M-LOK



Accessories are mountable directly from the front face of the slot. No access from the rear of the system is needed.




The M-LOK direct attachment system features a custom, cammed T-Nut that positions the T-Nut consistently for installation and removal. Simply adjust the gap between the T-Nut and accessory to match the thickness of the mounting surface, align the T-Nuts
with the slot, and insert in the desired location. An initial ¼ to ½ turn of the screw for each T-Nut rotates the nut into engagement and then you may tighten normally.


Simple, rounded, rectangular slots with no sharp edges, complex geometry, or undercuts make the M-LOK slots optimal for high volume metal and polymer manufacturing


The M-LOK slots require no special cutters or angle gauges in the manufacturing process. With injection molding, the lack of an undercut allows simple mold design. All of this results in the lowest manufacturing costs possible.


Accessories feature recoil mitigation lugs with full recoil lug support in all 4 axes of movement, preventing movement of the system under recoil or rough handling, allowing repeatable accuracy in removal and reinstallation.


M-LOK accessories can be direct mounted entirely within a slot or bridging between/across slots, making the adjustment interval smaller than the size of a single slot. (Intervals equal two Picatinny rail slots (20mm) of adjustment). Full, 4 axis recoil lug support is maintained at every interval.


Accessories can be mounted facing toward the front or the rear (180 degrees difference), with full recoil lug support—the system does not need to be oriented in a specific direction to function properly.


In addition to the soon-to-be released, dedicated M-LOK accessory line, current MOE accessories will work with the M-LOK slots via an adapter plate, giving the M-LOK system access to millions of accessories already fielded for the MOE system.




Desert Tech Introduces the Micro Dynamic Rifle at 2014 SHOT Show

On January 9th 2014 Desert Tech, formerly Desert Tactical Arms, has announced a new product for Shot Show 2014: the Micro Dynamic Rifle (MDR).


The MDR is a compact bullpup rifle.  According to the official press release this rifle allows the user to convert, without any tool, between 5 different calibers. The DMR uses an innovating and patented system to eject the brass forward. It also has fully ambidextrous controls (mag release, fire switch, bolt release), which allows any operator to use this weapon in any position.


The DMR seems to be very portable with its compact and balanced design, with an overall length of 26″ (66cm). It also seems to have an even more compact version of 20″ (50cm) that utilizes a 10.5″ (26cm) barrel.
The weight of the gun waves between 7.12 lbs to 7.5 lbs (3.2 kg – 3.4 kg). The gun seems to be assembled with multiple polymer-made components, in order to lower the weight.

A key feature of all the Desert Tech products is the adaptability. The best way is to have a tool that can adapt to different mission configurations within minutes. Like other Desert Tech (former DTA) rifles (like the SRS, SRS-A1, SRS HTI) the Micro Dynamic Rifle can quickly switch between different calibers, but in this case without tools. The barrel exchange is designed to retain the barrel zero without need to compensate after the process.

About what calibers  will this rifle utilize, to whom it will be available or other details we have to wait for Shot Show 2014.

With the release of this rifle Desert Tech aims to transfer its adaptable and versatile design from precision rifles to carbines. We will see very soon how the public will react to this novelty.
