New Glock Model! The Glock 17 & 19 Gen5

11

The new features on the Gen5:

1. nDLC finish for barrel and slide – GLOCK‘s nDLC provides tougher, more durable protection than previously used finish. The nDLC finish is exclusive to the GLOCK manufacturing process. The nDLC finish increases protection against corrosion and scratching and improves the ability of the pistol to function in degreased or adverse conditions. The nDLC finish will be exclusive to Gen5 pistols at this time.
2. GLOCK Marksman Barrel – The GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) features new barrel rifling which delivers improved accuracy.
3. Removal of the finger grooves on the grip – Removing the finger grooves improves the ergonomics of the grip. The absence of finger grooves improves the ability of the pistol to deliver a consistently comfortable grip to a wider range of consumers, regardless of their finger size and whether or not gloves are worn.
4. Ambidextrous Slide Stop Lever – The ambidextrous slide stop lever makes it easier for gun owners to quickly, safely and comfortably manipulate the slide whether they are left-handed or right-handed.
5. Flared mag-well – The larger opening of the flared mag-well makes it easier to funnel the magazine into the mag-well, particularly in high-stress situations where fractions of seconds matter.
6. GLOCK Gen5 Magazine – The new GLOCK Gen5 magazine comes with an orange follower and a floor plate which is extended at the front for faster magazine change.

First Look at Walther Arms P22QD Pistol

By: SI Staff

walther-arms-p22qd-pistol-f

Walther Arms added a number of updates to its popular P22 rimfire pistol, relaunching the gun under the P22QD line.

The new Walther P22QD features many of the same elements found in the company’s original P22 pistol. The frame offers the same ergonomic fit as the original gun, and much of the profile is unchanged, ensuring that shooters have access to the same look and feel as the company’s previous offering, as well as the reliability that comes with the system.

However, Walther made a select few changes to improve the versatility and safety of the pistol. The company added a decocking safety. The new setup ensures that users cannot cock the pistol with the safety engaged. If owners load the gun and then engage the safety, the external hammer will safely move into a forward position, decocking the P22QD and allowing users to operate the pistol with a double-action trigger pull on the first shot. All Walther P22 pistols operate using a DA/SA action.

Each Walther P22 pistol comes equipped with three-dot combat sights made from polymer. The rear sight is adjustable for windage, and the sights feature a low-profile design that won’t catch on clothing or holster during a draw. The pistol also features a Picatinny accessory rail that allows users to attach an optional light or laser.

The double-action/single-action system used on the pistol provides users with an 11-pound trigger pull on double-action shots, while single-action follow-up shots can be performed using the gun’s 4-pound single-action pull. The pistol includes an ambidextrous, paddle-style magazine release, as well as a loaded-chamber indicator and an external slide stop that locks the magazine back on an empty chamber.

The Walther P22QD, like other P22 pistols, can be used with an aftermarket adapter that allows users to equip a suppressor onto the company’s M8x.075 target barrel with 1/2-28 TPI threads. The suggested retail price on a Walther P22 pistol starts at $319.

First Look: Ed Brown LS10 1911 Pistol

By: SI Staff

Fans of the 10 mm cartridge have had to look far and wide for a long-slide 1911-style gun chambered in the powerful cartridge. Now, with the introduction of the Ed Brown LS10 long-slide 10 mm 1911, shooters looking for an accurate pistol in the powerhouse chambering can cease their search.
The Ed Brown LS10 is designed from the ground up for long-range target shooting and hunting with a long-slide handgun that incorporates a 6-inch barrel, perfect for taking advantage of the enhanced performance characteristics of the 10 mm round. In addition to the increased velocity offered by the lengthened barrel, the longer slide also provides shooters with an increased sight radius, ensuring more accurate shooting.
To take advantage of this tack-driving accuracy, the pistol can be had with an adjustable rear sight. For those looking to take advantage of more modern micro red-dot sights, Ed Brown will also sell a model that features a milled slide that comes filled with a Trijicon RMR reflex optic, ensuring that shooters can get on target quickly and easily with a 3.25-MOA red dot.
When equipped with an RMR, the Ed Brown LS10 will also feature back-up iron sights from Trijicon. These tall irons are designed for nighttime and low-light use and have enough clearance to allow shooters to use the optics through the window of the RMR optic.
The LS10 1911 measures 9.75 inches in overall length, with a height of 6.25 inches. The total weight of the gun, including an empty magazine, is 43 ounces. The slide and frame are constructed from stainless steel, and the gun is finished in Ed Brown’s black Gen4 finish. The total magazine capacity of the pistol is nine rounds.
The pistol also features 25 lines-per-inch checkering on the front strap and mainspring housing of the frame, ensuring that shooters have a firm gripping surface on the pistol that withstands the recoil of the powerful 10 mm round. The slide features traditional forward-facing cocking serrations located on the rear of the slide. The pistol also includes a French border, serrated slide top and a flush-fit barrel.

American Rifleman’s 2017 Golden Bullseye winner for “Rifle of the Year”—the LWRCI IC DI—is now available in 300 BLK. The IC DI 300 BLK design was born out of the US Military M4 PIP program that called for longer barrel life, full ambidexterity, better reliability and user configurable floating rail system.

“Based on the continued popularity of the 300 BLK platform it is a natural line extension for LWRCI and our IC DI line”, said David Ridley, senior vice president sales and marketing. “The LWRCI-DI 300 excels on all counts, offering our customers an accurate advanced DI rifle at a price that will surprise you. It is truly a ‘Step-Up’ from the basic direct impingement rifles on the market now in 300 BLK” 

The IC DI 300 BLK model features many of the same performance attributes found in its popular gas-piston luxury AR lineup. Custom rifle features include a  Monoforge upper, modular one-piece free float rail, LWRCI cold hammer-forged cold hammer forged heavy barrel, fully ambidextrous lower controls (mag release, bolt catch/release and selector switch), angled ergonomic fore grip, Mil-spec 6-position buffer tube and LWRCI proprietary advanced DI Bolt Carrier group with keyless gas key.  As with all LWRCI rifles, the IC DI 300 BLK is available in a California-compliant model.

First Look: FN America FN 15 Tactical Carbine II CA

By:SI Staff

FN America announced it would be launching two new California-compliant rifles in the company’s FN 15 rifle lineup, conforming to new California state laws regarding the configuration of semi-automatic rifles. The new FN 15 Tactical Carbine II CA is the first of the new models.

“Many of California’s pro-gun residents have had very limited options in terms of what they could purchase because of the state-imposed regulations on firearms,” said John Keppeler, vice president of sales and marketing for FN America, LLC. “FN saw California’s market as an opportunity to expand the FN 15 line. This addition will finally offer a quality-built FN rifle to gun buyers who have limited compliant options. We hope to earn a few new FN fans along the way and further expand our compliant series to other heavily restricted states.”

The new FN 15 Tactical Carbine II is outfitted with a Hera CQR stock, which eliminates the standard pistol grip found on traditional AR-15 rifles. The stock also eliminates the commonly seen thumbhole stock used in place of a pistol grip, thereby complying with California law. The rifle also features a 10-round Magpul PMag, which is also compliant with 2017 California legislation.

Otherwise, the rifle features many of the same components found on standard AR-style firearms. The gun features a 16-inch cold-hammer-forged, free-float barrel, which includes a chrome-lined interior to protect against corrosion. The barrel is also equipped with a SureFire ProComp 556 muzzle brake.

The receiver is constructed from aluminum and features a hard-anodized finish. The A3 flattop rail matches up with the FN Rail System to provide a continuous mounting surface for optics and other accessories. The company’s rail uses M-Lok attachment points that allow for accessory mounts. Other features of the gun include a quick-detach sling attachment on the featureless stock, as well as an FN combat trigger.

The suggested retail price on the new FN 15 Tactical Carbine II CA is $1,799. The company’s other California-compliant rifle, the FN 15 DMR II CA, will retail at a suggested price of $2,099.
