This year . . Almost didn't make it. Ended up going for two days. What did I see that caught my eye? The silencers . . . . There are a lot of great cans with quick attach mounts. The Quick Attach mount on both mike Pappas' Dead Air Armament Sandman and Kevin Brittingham's sig cans show a reversion to simple but effective mounts. These mounts have no moving parts (the latch on the Sig can does move). The Sandman mount comes apart easily and has a couple of springs. Slide de it on and twist until you feel it overcome the resistance and its on! The sig mount is what the 51 tooth mount should have been. The latch is a fail safe. The can can be torqued onto the mount by using the wrench flats and a torque wrench if you really want consistency (something no other can offers). No wiggles. Will they stick on the mount? Who knows. But the real question is can you get them off? The answer to both is most likely. Sig Sauer has a .45 acp can that is supposed to beat the TiRant 45! Yes . . . . That's what I was told and I will have one if it does. POF. The have a new DI rifle that has a unique adjustable gas block. A Straight inconel gas tube with the adjustment in the front of the block. Larue Tactical. The new bolt guns look great. The siete 300WM in the aI chassis is a nice looking rifle. I mean . . . I'm not a bolt gun expert but Mark is cutting the barrels and the recurve es bolt everything. Except the trigger if I recall. I actually kind of want one. Mark Larue has a nice 2 stage MBT trigger. It feels smooth. Nice predictable take up and a clean break. I am giving one a try. Surefire. Didn't get to have a detailed lok. The SO.cOM cans are updated. The socom762rc is quieter by 3db. The 300blk is coming out and the pistol cans. gemtech. Two intersting products: The suppressed bolt carrier group. GemTech moved the gas adjustment to the bolt carrier itself. My only criticism is that the BCg has to be removed to change the gas setting. Is this bad? well. It's hard to change a hot gas block adjuster and the bolt carrier group can generally be handled well before the gas block cools down. The ONE can. I talked to Joey Harris. This is what caught my attention. 1. 300 win mag on a 24" barrel 2. 762x51mm on a 12.5" barrel 3. 5.56mm full auto on a 7.5" barrel this is is out of a 16oz titanium suppressor with swappable mounts. BiLock or direct thread. Magazines. I picked up a C-Products 6.8 mag for testing. Met Dr. Zheng, inventor of the unimag. I am going to receive one for testing. I finally figured out why it is innovative. It has a no-tilt, tilting follower that allows tapered rounds such as the 762x39 to stack in a straight magazine. Yes . . It is very interesting. Yes . . .it might actually work. Md it does it solves the 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 in the straight magazine conundrum. armatac picked up a SAW mag. Why? Becuase I always wanted one. It's 150rds of drum goodness. Magpul. All I can say is WOw! They pulled . . NOT A TRIFECTA . . . . BUT a quadfecta out of their collective hats this year! High cap magazine . . . .magpul submitted a patent app for a quad stack magazine . . . . They fooled everyone. They brought out the D-60 drum magazine. AI magazines for bolt guns? Tired of paying $60.00 for an aI magazine for your bolt gun? MAGpul has the solution. That's right magpul has a polymer AI compatible magazine. Tired of paying $29.00 for a factory Glock magazine? Well, try a $15.95 Glock Pmag for your Glock 17. Someone may have actually made a reliable aftermarket magazine for a glock. That someone is Magpul. Otte Gear. Picked up a parka and anorak. Still the best in my opinion but WTF do I know? Glock. No single stack 9mm . . . Maybe next year. CZ. Okay . . They are bringing the BREN and I guess I want one. SERBU. Mark is still selling the semi BFG-50a and a sweet little pistol 556 upper. Always enjoy looking at that beast of a DI .50 and wonder what it would be like suppressed! Flir. Wow, still want a T-70! Clip on thermal goodness that can be used as a standalone weapon sight.
