Walther PPQ M2 5 Inch Competition - NASGW 2013

The National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) is having their annual expo/meeting over the next few days and we're starting to see some of the latest products soon to be available on the market.


Walther has seen great success with the PPQ M1 and released the M2 version earlier this year; which immediately sold out. The difference is the M1 uses an ambidextrous paddle-type magazine release that contours the trigger guard and the M2 utilizes a standard push button magazine release that is also ambidextrous. 


Walther PPQ M2 5 Inch Competition:
  • Ambi magazine release
  • Extended/Ambi slide stop
  • Available in 9mm or 40 S&W
  • Lightning cuts to lighten the slide
  • MSRP: $749

Kahr Introduces the CT-40 and CT-45 - NASGW 2013

The National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) is having their annual expo/meeting over the next few days and we're starting to see some of the latest products soon to be available on the market.



Those familiar with Kahr will realize that they offer standard priced pistols and 'budget' priced pistols that are similar to the more expensive versions. They have been lacking a 'budget' model in their full sized pistol line-up until now. Kahr has introduced the CT-40 and CT-45 to complement their TP counterparts at an MSRP of $449. A CT-9 will be released sometime next summer.

I owned a TP-45 several years ago and regret selling it; maybe I'll be able to replace it with a new CT!




So what's the difference between the CT and PT series? 
  • Slide with less machiniong = less cost
  • Pinned front sight instead of dovetailed front sight
  • Scroll engraving instead of laser engraving
  • Metal Injection Molded (MIM) slide stop and extractor as opposed to machined from solid material
  • Button cut rifled barrel instead of Lothar/Walther Match-Grade Polygonal Rifled Barrel
  • One magazine instead of two and a cardboard box instead of a hard plastic one

Some Ruger SR-762 Goodness

On the heels of the successful SR-556, Ruger has released its bigger brother; the Ruger SR-762.



Below is a video provided by the Kentucky Gun Company that gives Ruger's new rifle a bath... favorable performance is not the result, but I'd advise you not to develop any preconceived notions from this. I am, however, disappointed by the 8+ pound trigger pull that is demonstrated. With an MSRP of $2195 it makes the Smith & Wesson M&P 10 a pretty tempting substitute.

Ruger Announces the return of the Red Label O/U Shotgun


Ruger has officially announced that their manufacturing hiatus of the Red Label over/under shotgun has ended. We can expect to see a redesigned version offered in three barrel lengths (26,28,30) and chambered in 12 gauge. MSRP: $1399




Be sure to check out the Red Label's 'Extras' page for some videos! Here's a PDF Overview. Below is Ruger's official press release:

Ruger Announces Redesigned Red Label Over-and-Under Shotgun October 24, 2013 Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces the launch of the newly redesigned Red Label over-and-under shotgun. Known for years as a top choice of American hunters and clay shooters for its world-renowned rugged construction and handsome American styling - the Red Label returns. The shotgun now features refined inner workings, a new center of gravity and reduced recoil. These new improvements deliver improved comfort and an enhanced shooting performance.
Shooters that have frequented the woods, fields and clay courses know the Ruger® Red Label shotgun has been a reliable performer that swings easily. The new 12 gauge Red Label has a redistributed center of gravity for even greater instinctual swing and pointing. Two-inch extended forcing cones, maximum back-bored barrels and a soft Pachmayr® buttpad enhance the shooting experience with reduced recoil. The Red Label's familiar, low profile receiver reduces muzzle climb because the centerline of the bore is closer to the gun's center mass. The new Red Label makes for an extremely comfortable shooting shotgun in the field or on the range.
"After 32 years of production, we put the Red Label on hiatus in 2011," commented Ruger President and CEO, Mike Fifer. "We knew we could employ newer technology, improve the design and deliver a better performing Red Label. We have done that and restored the Red Label as the best American-made, over-and-under shotgun on the market."
The Red Label features an American Walnut stock with a 1.5" drop at comb and a 2.5" drop at heel. Red Label shotguns are available with 26", 28" or 30" barrels and each model features a 14.5" length of pull. The new models retain the Red Label's classic lines and good looks, which are further enhanced by the new stainless steel top lever. The suggested retail price for all three models is $1,399.
Each shotgun includes a custom molded, semi-soft case, five Briley® chokes (two skeet chokes and one full, one modified and one improved cylinder choke), a premium-quality Briley® choke tube wrench and a safety lock.

ATF's Advice on Internet and Private Sales of Firearms

Straight from the horse's mouth:


Takeaways:
  • If you don't have a Federal Firearm License (FFL) you are considered an 'unlicensed dealer' by the ATF
  • In a private sale firearms can be bought over the Internet, at flea markets/gun shows and informally from one individual to another; without paperwork or background check.
  • An 'unlicensed' person may sell a firearm to an 'unlicensed' resident of their state; provided you don't believe the buyer is Mr. Stabby McRapington.
  • An 'unlicensed' individual is prohibited from selling a firearm to a person who lives in another state.
  • If you're uncomfortable about buying or selling with an 'unlicensed' person; utilize a current FFL to perform a background check.

From the people that brought you DuraCoat :: DuraCoat in a CAN!

Within the week you'll be able to take advantage of DuraCoat in an easy-to-use aerosol can.


Lauer Weaponry, the makers of DuraCoat, are preparing to release a much simpler solution for the application of their product. The reason this has never been done before is because the DuraCoat product needed to have a measurement of a hardener mixed into the coating solution in order to be applied. Now with their "unique can-within-a-can technology" the hardener is already pre-measured and inside the aerosol can.

In case you've been under a rock DuraCoat can be applied to all types of metals, plastics and wood. It can also be applied over bare metal, parkerizing, anodizing and bluing.

It will be initially offered in the following colors:

  • 4 - Matte Black
  • 21 - White
  • 15 - OD Green
  • 44 - Combat Grey
  • 2 - Woodland Green
  • 6 - Parker
  • 83 - BlackHawk Coyote Tan
  • 66 - Pink Lady
  • 79 - Magpul Flat Dark Earth
The product will remain usable for 48 hours after you mix the hardener.

For more details stop by Lauer Weaponry's Website for all of your DuraCoating needs.
