The Crye Precision SIX12 Modular Revolver Shotgun is intended to give an end user a better option for under slung shotguns. The firing mechanism is a double action stroker fire, so like a revolver you rotate the cylinder with the trigger.



Seen here demonstrating the quick change cylinder.



This SIX12 has an 18" barrel and very cleanly fits under a 20" rifle with no tax stamp.



The Crye Precision SIX12 shorty.

Seekins Precision had their new .308 on display. This rifle has a lot going for it. The fit and finish is second to none, and at it's heart is a nitrated 5R barrel, need I say more?  I really can't say enough good things about this rifle. You have to get your hand on it to appreciate how well it's constructed. Now I just want to know how it shoots!





Take note everyone, Seekins Precision is the first company to do a properly ambidextrous lower for a .308! I don't know why it took the industry so long to figure this out while we wasted time with the bolt release "ambi" lowers. Anyway, congrats Seekins on doing it right. This has been something I've always wanted.

Post #100!

The Megalithic upper is probably the AR part I'm most excited about this year.



This is it, Mega Arms big release for SHOT 2014, their new not-monolithic upper call the Megalithic. They found a very clever way to get around that pesky LMT patten by incorporating a level into the upper, breaking the continuous top rail.  They will also be doing a .308 version of the Megalithic.





A look at that wonderful level that's going to allow us all to enjoy a one piece Mega Arms upper for future builds.

Diamondhead-USA has a new polymer sight coming out that will retail just above $100 for the set. These sight have phosphorus inserts, and as you can see here, they glow very bright with a little charge.

Here it is, the KelTech RDB. It will be expensive, if I'm remembering correctly, around $1700 and even more for the M43 version that wan't here.



The KelTech RDB feels really well balanced, and if they do as good of a job with this as they did with the RFB, it'll be a great firearm, they just need to bring down the price.




That slit in the rear is where the RDB ejects brass.



1943 technology, January 2013 GunBroker pricing.  You know you want it, but will you ever want it enough to pay 3k?

The best AR mags on the market just got bigger. These are Lancer's .308 (SR25/DPMS pattern) prototypes, no clear ETA on a production version. They must be close as the molds are clearly running to make these.

Here it is, the civilian version of the Sig Sauer MPX. It will initially roll-out as a pistol, but there are plans for a 16" version. Apparently the ATF said no to their original idea of just pinning the baffles from the MPX's suppressor to achieve a 16" OAL. The ATF must think we're a bunch of delinquents... I am willing to bet that they will also offer it with the "arm brace" that we've all come to appreciate.




Being clever, Sig Sauer is using a standard 1913 rail interface to attach stocks. I might as well start filling out a Form 1 now...


This a the SBR version of the Sig Sauer MPX you can't have.

Moro Vision has become one of my favoriate booths at SHOT. They always seem to have the most interesting and useful night vision accessories. Last year it was a Gen 3 tube you could mount directly on a DSLR that used standard lenses to produce full frame images at the focal range of your choosing. This year they have a system that allows you mount your PVS-14 in front of a day optic. Anything that makes your PVS 14 more versatile is a good thing in my book. Especially considering the cost of a PVS-22 unit...

SRM has updated their shotgun with a few new improvements, including the use of Zytel in the plastic components. Most noticeable is the billet receiver that gives the shotgun sharper lines.



SRM will also be releasing a model that's designed specifically to work with less than lethal ammunition. It will come from the factory in that orange color so that prison guards and riot police know which shotgun to grab during a stressful situation...

Here is one of the SHOT Show debuts that I personally find very interesting. This is the new 416 Hushpuppy from AM-TAC. It use a standard-unmodified AR mag and bolt, and lets you push a 415 grain slug out of an AR. As you may have guessed from the name, it's designed as a sub-sonic round, but they are also developing a round for those of us unlucky enough to live in states that don't allow cans. As this cartridge will be lower velocity that every other .416 round they have developed it to achieve rapid yaw on impact and cavitate a target by tumbling through it instead of expanding or fragmenting.

You can read more about the AM-TAC 416 Hushpuppy here - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=650082415055881&set=pb.174876979243096.-2207520000.1389884186.&type




AM-TAC also have a new Key Mod rails out. It utilizes a very robust barrel nut and is an incredibly stable rail vs. other long forends. The bonus feature being that you can mount a QD sling swivel directly into any of the Key Mod slots.

Palmetto State Armory has yet to finalize pricing on their new .308, but it should be $1300-$1500. They also said that .308 rifles will have hammer forged FN barrels, so that price seems pretty fair to me.  I asked about the availability of receivers, and it will be happening.




Your eyes are no deceiving you, Palmetto State Armory is working on a 1911.  I dared to say it on the show floor, and I'll say it again. The Palmetto State Armory 1911 are as tight as my Dan Wesson Firearms Point Man 7. I was able to meet the gunsmith who is in charge of the project, and I have to give him credit for being a perfectionist. There is still no ETA for these because they're still being refined, mostly trigger work. Even in their current state they are on par with the Kimber's, Springfield's and Colts, in my opinion. I am anxious for the production version, and the price tag...     




Did I mention they are series 70, Palmetto State Armory is building the properly.



The use of Nowlin barrels should be your first indicator that they aren't skimping on parts.

The Badlands Bino case utilizes a very interesting magnet seam instead of a zipper for quick access. It's suppose to be watertight too. I'd really like to get one and see how well it holds up.



New from Kifaru.

Mystery Ranch



Mystery Ranch is coming out with a new IFAK line.



The smallest of the Mystery Ranch IFAK line, the pouch and medical equipment will cost about $70.




Blue Force Gear, Inc. showing their MOLLE minus plate carrier.



The exact name of this new boot from Reebok is escaping me. Regardless, I want a pair, they are unbelievably light. The bummer is they don't meet AR 670-1 for some material reason. I still want a pair...



The new STRIX tactical headlamp from Petzl. These have been available since June of 2013, but SHOT was my first opportunity to play with one.



5.11 has a new line of flashlights & headlamps.




These are two of the industrial designers behind the new lighting products from 5.11. Learning about how the gear we use is created, is sometimes more interesting than the product itself.

The new thing from GA Precision this year is reduced weight. They have gotten feedback from many of their users that they "love their 17lb rifles, but wish they were more 14lbs" particularly for hunting. George was quick to oblige. GA Precision has reduced weight through the use of a split rail receiver, and the new carbon fiber Manners Composite Stocks, and a lighter profile barrels. The rifle is as accurate as any GAP, but if you want to string together 15-20 shot groups, it's not going to keep up; but if you're hunting I really hope you don't need to put that many rounds down range...



GA Precision has also developed a new 6mm cartridge that they claim is one of the flattest shooting rounds ever made.

You can also see the carbon fiber weave in the new Manners Composite Stocks. I really wish I didn't loos all the photos of the Manners stocks that were on my hard drive, these they were one of my favorite new products from the show.



As you may know, GA Precision has a close working relationship with Bushnell. The new LRHS was on display at the GA Precision booth, and it's got the clearest glass I've ever seen on a Bushnell. The glass is on par with Nightforce and US Optics, and a great option for hunting, if you can afford it...

Timney has a new trigger for the Remington 700 platform with a crisp 8oz brake.  I'm excited to pit it against a Jewell.



Tavor owners can rejoice that Timney is now making a trigger pack for them. The trigger doesn't feel quite as good as the ones they make for AR's. It's got a little creep and feels a bit spongy (for a Timney), but it's a bullpup, so I'm probably expecting more than I should; either way, it's a huge improvement over the stock trigger.

Rhino arms has developed a 12 gauge upper for SR25/DPMS pattern .308 rifles.



The most interesting thing (to me) at the Rhino Arms booth was their carbon fiber Key Mod hand guard.

For about $900 you can get a 9mm conversion for your IMI Tavor. For $900 you can also buy a lot of 5.56, or a 9mm carbine.  If the 9mm Tavor wasn't so damn expensive it would be really appealing.



The Tavor 9mm conversion kit, what you get for $900!



Cutout guns were everywhere this year.

The Arsenal Strike One is almost here. I was told that it's with the ATF and about a month away from being approved.



Most people assume the frame is polymer, but it's just painted metal.

On the left, the Wilcox RAPTAR Lite ES, and on the right the Wilcox RAPTAR. The visible and IR lasers in both of these units adjust together, so you only have to do one zero. The most obvious difference is that the Lite ES, has a light, where as the regular RAPTAR has a laser range finder that is effective out beyond 1000 meters. As you would expect the price difference is huge, with the Lite selling for around $1500, and the ranging RAPTAR selling for over $4k (I can't recall the exact price). The Lite ES is also civilian legal with a Class1 0.7mw laser!



I think I have found a replacement for my Surefire X300 that's currently on my SBR... This is the Laser Devices DBAL-PL. A civilian Legal DBAL-PL has two operational modes, 500 lumen white light and 5mW red or green laser; or Class 1 IR Laser with 600mW eye-safe LED illuminator.



This is the new Mk3 Battle Light from Laser Devices. The Mk3 is a white light LED and IR LED Illuminator, it allows users to instantly switch between White Light and eye-safe Infrared Illumination. Features include a high/low power 500 lumen/10 lumen white light with or without 8Hz strobe and a 600mW/150mW infrared LED illuminator. You can see the IR LED array lit up in the photo.
