It features a consistent shot string of 70 rounds from one full fill of its 3,000-psi tank. Available in either .177 or .22, the Gauntlet is a multi-shot bolt-action that comes with two, 10-round magazines as well as a single-shot option.
In the Legends series, Umarex debuts the Legends MP — an all-metal German replica of the WWII-era full-auto MP (Maschinenpistole) machine gun originally chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum. The airgun version runs on CO2 and fires steel BBs in either semi- or full-auto modes. The magazine holds two, 12-gram CO2 capsules and 60 rounds.
Chiappa Firearms now offers its LITTLE BADGER in .17 WSM. The compact, lightweight rifle is designed to go anywhere at any time. It opens and folds over to stow neatly in its included case. The Little Badger comes equipped with an M1 Carbine-style front and rear sights, Picatinny rails mounted top, bottom and on both sides. The rifle weighs less than 3 lbs. and has a 16.5-inch barrel.
A 9mm Luger RHINO REVOLVER is now available. Included in its unique design features, the Rhino fires from the bottom cylinder rather than the top to reduce muzzle rise and felt recoil. Its aluminum alloy frame and barrel shroud make the revolver lightweight. Accessory rails on the 4-, 5- and 6-inch barrel models allow mounted lights or lasers. The revolver’s completely enclosed firing mechanism can be fired either single or double action. It is available in 2-, 4-, 5- and 6-inch barrel lengths in a black finish.
Texas Armament & Technology (TXAT)
Texas Armament & Technology announces it will be importing the Schmeisser SLP-9 9mm. It’s a striker-fired pistol with a special DARE System (Double Action Rapid Engagement) that resets the firing pin after a 3mm release of the trigger. This allows fast precision taps after the first round fired in double action. Multiple trigger pulls are possible with the SLP-9. A second striker action can be initiated by simply pulling the trigger again. The SLP-9 weighs 1.65 lbs. Its overall length is 7.36 inches; barrel length is 4.5 inches. Magazine capacity is 17 rounds.
3M Peltor Sports
Designed to provide cutting-edge hearing protection that suppresses gunshot noise, the Sport Tactical 300/Tactical 500 Electronic Hearing Protectors from 3M Peltor Sports utilizes proprietary technology to optimize the shooting experience. Dynamic Suppression Time Technology measures the energy of the gun shot, and based on the firearm being used, will set the suppression time. When shooting indoors, recovery time automatically adjusts to reduce echoes and reverberations. Clear Voice Tracking Technology seeks voice within background noise and actively filters the noise to improve speech intelligibility. Additionally, the Tactical 500 syncs with Bluetooth-enabled devices.
Federal Premium Ammunition
For 2017, Federal has improved upon the original Gold Medal design with the Gold Medal Grand. The redesigned load produces less felt recoil, more reliable ignition with the Rigid PrimerLock, improved shot hardness and the Integral base wad enhances reloadability. It’s available in 2.75-inch 12-ga. shells with several shot options and weights.
After a decade in existence, Black Cloud is now equipped with the rear-opening FLITECONTROL FLEX wad — providing tight patterns through ported and standard chokes. Its payload includes 40 percent FLITESTOPPER steel pellets and 60 percent Premium steel for dense patterns and larger wound channels.
The Hi-Bird 12-ga. load maximizes long-range lethality on pigeons, doves and upland game. Two-piece wad features SoftCell technology to decrease perceived recoil and produce consistent long-range patterns. It’s available in a 2.75-inch shell with a variety of shot options: #6, #7.5, and #8.
Federal also introduces the Hunter Match .22 Long Rifle, which features a 40-gr. HP bullet, for small game and varmint hunters.
In the Fusion line, 6.5 Creedmoor is a new entry. It features a 140-gr. bullet and joins 34 other loads from .223 Rem. to .45-70 Govt.
