11 Eye-Catching Product Launches


The first quarter of the calendar year is a significant period for the industry. SHOT Show, key distributor shows and other smaller regional events set the stage for the remaining months ahead. Historically, the first quarter also brings an avalanche of new product announcements — and this year was no different. While it’s impossible to highlight every major launch, we’ve identified 11 that are primed to make an impact for storefront dealers and range operators this year.


Staccato C & Ammunition Line

Innovators of the 2011 platform, Staccato further expanded its horizons in 2024. This year, it debuted the Staccato C — which will begin shipping this summer — and an ammunition line, Staccato Range and Staccato Match (both in 9mm). The Staccato C is a 4″ pistol adept for concealed carry, as well as home defense and duty use. 

According to Staccato CEO Nathan Horvath, the Staccato C has all the enhancements found in the company’s V3 lineup, which debuted last year in the Staccato CS: “The V3 product line [introduced] platform innovations such as a thinner grip designed around dedicated Staccato magazines, an external extractor and frame rails designed to retain lubrication and prevent excess carbon buildup.”

Range Systems

Powered Adjustable Bench

All too often, companies take a “one-size-fits-all” approach to product development. With the Powered Adjustable Bench, Range Systems has provided a solution for range operators to make their ranges more versatile. At the touch of a button, the adjustable-height shooting bench elevates from 30″ to 48″ — providing a tailored experience for range visitors. Another positive, it’s also ADA compliant.

“All shooters aren’t the same height, so why should their benches be? Range Systems’ motorized bench adjusts for ADA compliance and shooters up to standing rifle height with the push of a button make it inclusive for all,” informed Doug VanderWoude, Range Systems managing director, commercial.

Rost Martin


Every year brings a fresh wave of new firearm introductions — but new gun companies are far less common. Rost Martin’s entrance into the market has brought both credibility — its owners Chris and Stefany Toomer previously worked at Springfield Armory in marketing and production capacities — and enthusiasm from those who have handled the striker-fired RM1C. A feature-rich option for concealed carry at a competitive price (and made in Dallas), the RM1C’s trigger and ergonomics have stood out to end users. Backed by a lifetime warranty, Rost Martin CEO Chris Toomer highlights the RM1C’s durability and reliability.

“Our preproduction stress test and validation included testing the limits of our pistol up to 50,000 rounds, submersion in sand, water, ice, mud, and extensive drop testing without failure,” he explained.


Vudu X Series

Whether it’s for 3-Gun, hunting or recreational shooting, the Vudu X Series of riflescopes delivers EOTECH’s vaunted toughness and crystal clear clarity for those users on a budget. Available in 1-6×24 and 2-12×40 models, each offers 30mm tube diameter, illuminated reticles powered by a CR2032 battery and a removable throw lever for quick transitions across the magnification range.

“We developed the X Series line of Vudu scopes to address the shooter [who] wants all of the accuracy, precision and durability of our legacy Vudu scopes, but with features and a price that better match their needs,” shared Mark Miller, EOTECH director of product management.

Holosun Technologies

SCS Carry

To say the Holosun booth was bustling during SHOT Show 2024 would be an understatement — interested buyers were shoulder to shoulder, often lines deep, to get their hands on the company’s newest offerings. 

One of Holosun’s show-stopping options was the SCS Carry (Solar Charging Sight), featuring 20,000-hour power reserve. The SCS Carry stands out with its Multiple Reticle System (MRS), offering versatile reticle options, including a 32 MOA Circle and 2 MOA Dot or a standalone 2 MOA Dot or 32 MOA Circle. The inclusion of an RMSc-to-K adapter plate enhances compatibility, making it an adaptable choice for a wide range of firearms. Additionally, its slim design facilitates a variety of carry options, from appendix to OWB.



SIG SAUER’s 1911-XSERIES combines the highly regarded features of the 1911 platform with the modern necessities the enthusiast desires.

“America has a love affair with the 1911; the platform has a rich history that has withstood the test of time,” said Tom Taylor, SIG SAUER CMO and EVP, commercial sales. “The 1911-XSERIES honors the standard and delivers XSERIES innovation and ingenuity to the platform.”

The SIG SAUER 1911 X-SERIES are stainless steel, .45 ACP hammer-fired pistols with an optics-ready XSERIES slide, X-RAY3 Day/Night sights, a serrated flat trigger, custom engraved and checkered G10 grips, extended slide release and ambidextrous safety levers, and each ships with two, eight-round steel magazines. Two sizes are available — 1911-XCARRY (available this summer) and 1911-XFULL (now shipping) — in either black or coyote tan; both offer the option of a factory-installed ROMEO-X red dot optic.

Magpul Industries


For years, Magpul has been synonymous with reliable, robust polymer magazines across an array of firearms platforms. However, today’s slimmer pistols with more narrow magazine wells perform better with steel magazines. Step forward, Magpul’s first-ever metal magazine: the AMAG 17 SG9 for SIG SAUER P320 and M17 pistols. Featuring a body made from a low-friction steel alloy, the AMAG 17 SG9 represents the first in what will be a family of AMAG options for end users. (Based on forums and reviews of the AMAG line online, you can probably guess the wide variety of suggestions that are coming from end users since this was announced.)

“Magpul AMAGs come with many of our proven features, including a high-visibility, controlled-tilt follower, stainless-steel spring, flared floorplate that’s easily removable for cleaning and routine maintenance, paint-pen dot matrix for magazine marking and capacity-indicator windows which begin at five rounds and continue along the spine of the magazine in one-round increments,” the company said.

Savage Arms

AccuCan Suppressors & Bipods

Known for its high-performing rifles and shotguns, Savage Arms has ventured into two new categories with the launch of the AccuCan line of suppressors and polymer bipods. Initially available in three multi-caliber options (AC338, AC30 and AC22), AccuCan suppressors are lightweight, field-serviceable and feature a design that reduces not only sound, but also other disturbances like flash and recoil. 

On the company’s entry into the suppressor market, Savage VP of Sales and Marketing Rob Gates stated, “We’re proud of the features, technology and true performance-enhancing qualities found in our initial  suppressor offerings. We’re excited to have the Savage  name in another new and rapidly growing category.”

In its new bipod line, Savage is offering two options in M-LOK and sling swivel mounts. The bipods feature cant and swivel capabilities and are designed for a no-slip footprint to maximize performance.

“We’re building a lifestyle brand around the modern shooter and hunter,” added Beth Shimanski, Savage director of marketing. “Bipods that make training, competition and hunting easier and more enjoyable are a great extension of our brand.”


Operatus XP Glove

Specifically designed for use with firearms, the Viktos Operatus XP glove is ready for range day or duty scenarios. It has a wicking four-way stretch polyester mesh backhand and an AX Suede microfiber palm that provides excellent grip. The one-piece palm pattern allows for precise firearm manipulation with the absolute minimum of trigger housing interference. The AX Suede thumb provides coverage from slide bites and the inner finger is reinforced against stippled trigger guards. In addition, the gloves are touchscreen-compatible for easy phone or tablet use, while the adjustable TPR wrist closure ensures a snug fit.
