To make sure that its new BR-4 Cutlass maritime rifle was truly water- and salt corrosion-proof, the staff at Battle Rifle Company submerged it in Galveston Bay, Texas–waters that production manager Karl Sorken once patrolled as a member of the Coast Guard.
Here at SHOT Show’s annual industry day at the range, the company — the maker of the military’s M249 squad automatic weapon — introduced the M249S Para, a closed-bolt semi-automatic rifle that nonetheless retains the look and feel of the original, down to the belted ammunition. The gun, which features the collapsible buttstock first designed for parachute missions and special operations, follows FN’s M249S Standard, released last year.

Academy Sports needs to show some backbone.
They’re a Texas family-owned company, I heard online that they were pulling ARs off the shelves under pressure from the Left, and I went to one in Arlington Texas to see for myself.
Yep, they pulled all their AR-15s from the display.
I talked to the manager, I was calm and polite, but I said, “You’re a Texas company. You have a responsibility to your customers, to Texas and to America. Show a little backbone. Don’t just cave at the first bit of pressure. I have six kids. I used to buy shoes and clothes here for my family. I’ll be shopping elsewhere. Please relay this message to those in charge.”
The manager said, “Well, we still sell ARs …”

From American Rifleman:
One such company that has been working to provide its customers with 100-percent American-made AKs for a while now is Century Arms. Among these offerings is the affordably priced Red Army Standard RAS47, a name that gives a nod back to the Cold War-era Soviet Union. which made the AKs one of the most ubiquitous small arms in modern history. This version of the rifle is modeled after the original Kalashnikov design with an eye toward reliability and a fair price.
A Cumberland County man cannot keep his grandfather’s World War II rifle because it is an illegal assault firearm, according to a Sept. 15 New Jersey Superior Court Appellate Division decision.
The M1 carbine could not be returned to him because it falls under the definition of an assault firearm, which is illegal to possess according to New Jersey law.
In a motion filed by Burt, he told the court that he acquired the rifle in 2006 from his grandfather, who served in World War II.
From Tactical Life:
Add that to the sheer numbers shipped and I think it’s perfectly permissible to ask the die-hard collectors, “Just how many of these millions of rifles do we really need to stick in museums and pass down for posterity in their ‘original’ military form?” Admittedly, I’ve never yet been able to bring myself to sporterize a classic Mauser or Enfield, but let’s be real here—there are more than enough Mosin-Nagants in varying grades and configurations out there to keep the collectors happy collecting and the sporterizers happy sporterizing.
POF-USA is now selling a new upper for the AR-15.
Review of the new round from RifleShooter.com:
Enter the 7.62x40WT. Based off the 7.62x40mm wildcat, the 7.62x40WT is based off 5.56x45mm parent case trimmed to 1.560″ and then re-sized to accept 30-caliber bullets. With factory offering from 110-125 grains, this cartridge seems to be the perfect hunting upgrade for the AR enthusiast. The only part of a 7.62x40WT rifle that is different from a standard .223 AR is the barrel. That’s it.

BEST LOW-COST IMPROVED TRIGGER CONTROL
FOR THE AR-15 PLATFORM–EVER
Las Vegas, NV, March 2, 2015 Accu-Grip www.accu-grip.net announces a remarkable low-cost patented and patent pending improvement to the AR-15 platform that will actually make shooting more comfortable and inherently much more accurate. www.accu-grip.net
Well first, who doesn’t make something for the AR platform anymore? True, but much of the gear is just flat-out show biz, not something that’s actually useful. This is!
The key to accurate and quick shooting is trigger control. Trigger control can be greatly improved by correct contact between the trigger finger and trigger. The basic trigger length of an AR is just 2.25 inches which is why most shooters position their hand awkwardly or have their trigger finger dangling out the other side of the trigger guard. NO MORE!
The Accu-Grip allows the shooter to lengthen and incrementally adjust the critical grip-to-trigger contact–up to 3.25 inches if desired (above image shows 5/8 inch). While that may not sound like much, any experienced shooter will tell you it is huge and can greatly improve critically important trigger control resulting in more accurate shooting.
Installation takes about five minutes. Accu-Grip fits all MILSPEC and factory lowers and comes with the necessary hardware and Allen wrench for installation. After installation, adjusting the grip to fit the individual shooter takes a few seconds. Movement of the grip is accomplished in 1/10-inch incremental positive hold adjustments and, of course, the grip may be adjusted as many times as the shooter wishes.
MATERIAL: The patented, all American-made Accu-Grip is molded with DuPont Zytel resin and long strand glass fibers, making it incredibly tough–tougher than the original grips.
COLORS: Accu-Grips are available in black, dark earth, OD green and desert sand. Other custom colors can be created in quantity on request.
PRICE: $39.95 MSRP.
BOTTOM LINE: People will spend a bunch of money getting triggers reworked, attaching cheese graters and doing other nifty stuff to the AR, but AR grip-to-trigger length improvement may be more important to better trigger control function and resulting shooter accuracy than anything else done on these rifles for under $500.00. Please see below Additional Background information.

Additional background information: When installed there is a gap behind the fully enclosed receiver and front edge of the grip where the thumb wraps. This gap increases as the grip length is increased. While different looking from the norm (What’s new with any of the stuff we attach to ARs?) it means nothing in operation or keeping the gun “dust free.”
We are all shooters at our PR firm with some having held NRA National Records. While it is our job to inform you of neat new products we can tell you that this single improvement to our ARs was astonishing. Our staff’s ability to place accurate hits at any speed was dramatically improved by everyone by an easy 25 percent and the trigger feel was 100 percent better. The Improved trigger pull position made 7-pound triggers feel like 3-pounds due to the resulting much improved trigger finger leverage and location.
To better understand this unique grip and why it can really help with accurate shooting, think of length of pull. As you know, length of pull with a rifle or shotgun is critical for accurate and comfortable shooting. Length of pull as applied normally is the distance between the rear of the butt or recoil pad of the rifle or shotgun to the center point of the trigger. This distance allows the shouldered firearm to “best fit” from the shooter’s shoulder to the trigger–length of pull is quite simply an overall trigger reach adjustment. Factory long arms have a generalized distance designed to fit the average person (like factory ARs). Many custom gun makers will measure and build a precise pull length to fit the individual shooter, and many competition long arms and some sniper rifles have fully adjustable pull lengths.
Now apply that concept to the vertical grip of the AR (obviously different from a normal sporting rifle). The conventional AR grip forces the shooter to have their trigger finger a certain distance from the grip–like it or not. The AR vertical hand grip does NOT allow shooters to move their trigger finger hand back or around (like the stock of a conventional hunting-style rifle might, for example). With the AR, you are stuck! On top of that, the 54-year-old AR trigger-to-grip distance is short so that smaller people can use the firearm (designed for military use, it has to fit everyone). Now comes the Accu-Grip solution!
The Accu-Grip allows this grip-to-trigger-surface distance to be opened up so that Joe and Jane Average-or-larger shooter can function the trigger much more efficiently. Improved reach, feel and trigger manipulation control means more accurate and even quicker shooting. We could call this the trigger length of trigger pull (TLTP), a huge improvement at low cost. A serious win win.
