SHOT Show 2019 | Knights Armament

KAC is now manufacturing additional scope mount caps with a 45 degree mounting solution for Glock sights. The front sight is offered with two protecting surfaces on the sides to accomodate for fiber optic sights, which are inherently much more fragile.

A micro Red Dot plate will also be available to allow a tailored solution for every shooter’s needs.

This system is mounted on the new High-Rise 34 mm mount.

SHOT Show 2019 | SilencerCo

After the launch of the modular Switchback 22 can, SilencerCo has started to study an application of similar modularity to other silencers. This is the prototype of new modular 30 cal can from SilencerCo for center-fired firearms.
This silencer, with a bore for 30 Cal rounds will also be used with 9mm SMGs and pistol caliber carbines, making it extremely versatile. Being a modular design it will be possible to unscrew the end module and, removing the endcap, it will be possible to shorten the length of the silencer at the field level.

The 9mm short configuration will perform similarly to an Omega 9K while in the long configuration the decibel count will be similar to an Octane 9.
With the 30 Cal endcap it will be close to what the Omega does to 308, 300 BLK and 556.

Mounting options:

  • Saker and Chimera direct threads
  • ASR mount
  • Modified piston of the Hybrid
  • Trilug mount

The new silencer will be lighter and shorter than the Hybrid and it will have no barrel length restrictions, just like the Chimera. Full auto rated.

Kestrel HUD (Heads Up Display)

This new product is weapon mounted directly on to the 1913 rail of the rifle and offers a very efficient view and interface for the shooter.

SHOT Show 2019 | Glock

Glock 45 

This model is defined by many as an adaptation of the Glock 19X (which was developed for the MHS program) to the Law Enforcement and duty needs.
The full grip (of the Glock 17) allows for maximum control while the shortened slide (of the Glock 19) provides various advantages.
Among the pros are faster “clearing of the holster”, shorter sight radius and less reciprocating mass, both due to the shorter slide.
Although a shorter sight radius will render more accurate shots more difficult, it provides a great advantage: the shooter is able to pick up the sights much faster, both on the first shot (from holster or ready position) as well as during follow-up shots.
Along with the sight radius follow-up shots are quicker due to reduced mass moving along the slide. Instead of lightening the slight Glock has simply shortened it, achieving the same result.
