Press Release: Mossberg® Introduces 590A1™ and 500® Compact Cruiser® AOWs The New Generation of 12 Gauge Sub-Compact, Pump-Action NFA Firearms

North Haven, CT – O.F. Mossberg and Sons, Inc. is pleased to offer new sub-compact NFA firearms, based on its time-proven 12-gauge 590A1 and 500 pump-actions. Classified by the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) as AOWs (Any Other Weapon), the 590A1/500 Compact Cruiser AOWs require a $5 tax stamp for transfer, as well as the required NFA transfer paperwork. Two 12-gauge, 3-inch sub-compact versions are available with all of the standard features of the 590A1/500 platform that millions worldwide have selected for personal defense and in service to our country.

500 Compact Cruiser

The Compact Cruisers are built on Mossberg’s legendary 500 action, which passed the rigorous testing required to meet or exceed U.S. Armed Services MilSpec 3443 requirements; the only shotgun manufacturer to pass these endurance, accuracy and quality tests. The 590A1/500 AOWs are designed for smooth, reliable operation and feature non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up; an anti-jam elevator; and dual extractors. Their lightweight, anodized aluminum receivers provide for added durability and for ease of operation, by right or left-handed shooters, the Compact Cruiser AOWs have Mossberg’s universally-recognized, ambidextrous top-mounted safety.

590A1 Compact Cruiser

Both the 590A1 and 500 feature the ATI®T3 pistol grip, constructed of reinforced polymer and designed to absorb recoil energy before reaching the shooter’s hand. Less felt recoil reduces shooter discomfort and the time required to get back on target. The T3’s non-slip textured finish provides for a positive grip. Adding to the shooter’s comfort and ease of cycling, the Compact Cruiser AOWs have contoured polymer foregrips with a durable, webbed strap. The foregrip can be folded down, assisting in recoil reduction, or folded up against the magazine tube. Both the stock and foregrip feature a non-reflective black finish.

The 590A1 Compact Cruiser AOW (51664) has a 10.25-inch heavy-walled, cylinder bore barrel with front bead sight; convenient cleanout mag tube with 3+1 capacity; metal trigger guard; metal safety button; and anodized aluminum receiver with Parkerized steel finishes. The 500 Compact Cruiser AOW (51697) features a 7.5-inch cylinder bore barrel with front bead sight; 2+1 capacity; durable anodized finish on receiver; and Parkerized finish on barrel and mag tube. MSRP: $910 – $980.

Now Mossberg delivers its legendary pump-action reliability in a convenient sub-compact package. For more information on the 590A1 and 500 Compact Cruiser AOWs, please visit www.mossberg.com or your local Mossberg dealer.

Press Release: SilencerCo NEW HARVESTED – BORDERLANDS VIDEO

NEW HARVESTED : BORDERLANDS VIDEO

During World War II, American soldiers stationed off the Barbary Coast of Northern Africa discovered a native sheep species, known as the aoudad. Recognizing their potential as a game animal, they shipped them to Texas; aoudads quickly proved to be an extremely challenging hunt for multiple reasons. Their keen sense of smell, hearing, and alertness to danger, combined with their capability to retain water from sparse vegetation and survive long periods of time without it, gives them the ability to live in rugged, dry habitats that are often too harsh for other animals.

We had the rare opportunity to scout the high desert terrain with UFC® Featherweight Fighter Chad Mendes in search of this elusive creature. Equipped with suppressed rifles and accompanied by expert guides, we set off to reconnect with the wilderness and harvest some challenging game.

SilencerCo Announces First Commercial Shotgun Suppressor

Utah Company Releases First Commercial Shotgun Suppressor

WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH – July 21, 2014 | Confirming its place as a trailblazer in the firearms industry, suppressor manufacturer SilencerCo has unveiled the first commercially-viable shotgun silencer ever produced. The company made the announcement today at an exclusive event near its Utah headquarters.

Every year, millions of sportsmen and women venture into the field to hunt. While advances in technology have spurred a record-breaking proliferation of rifle and handgun suppressors, shotgun owners have been without a real solution for sound protection. Some choose hearing protection in the form of earmuffs or plugs for relief in controlled environments, but most spurn their use in the field or in a home protection scenario, where the ability to detect other sounds is critical.

The new product, named the Salvo 12, provides a much needed option for shooting enthusiasts.

“The Salvo 12 represents a revolution in silencers, not just an evolution,” asserts Joshua Waldron, Chief Executive Officer for SilencerCo. “There is a huge installed base of shotgun hunters and shooters that has been waiting for a product like this for a long time, and we are proud to deliver it.”

In addition to its inherent novelty, the Salvo 12 is a modular design that allows the shooter to add or remove sections to balance length, weight and sound suppression needs. It arrives as a 12 inch suppressor, but can be reduced to 10, 8 and 6 inch configurations as needed.

For SilencerCo, answering the call for new products is nothing new. Since its origins in a Utah garage in 2008, the company has earned a fiercely loyal customer base by pioneering much-needed advances such as this. Among many others, its first and best-selling product, the Sparrow 22, is the quietest and easiest-to-clean rimfire suppressor on the market. The Osprey pistol suppressor still holds the only eccentric design in existence, allowing the host gun to maintain a flat sight plane.

Adding value to the sale, the Salvo 12 will carry with it the same celebrated lifetime warranty as all other SilencerCo products. To learn more or to find out how to purchase a SilencerCo Salvo 12, visit www.silencerco.com/salvo.

Press Release: LEHIGH DEFENSE ANNOUNCES CONTROLLED CHAOS AMMUNITION & PROJECTILES

We are pleased to announce that we are releasing two new products for 2014.

LehighDefenseControlledChaos

The first is our Controlled Chaos Ammunition and Projectiles. The second is our line of Controlled Fracturing Bullets.

Our Controlled Chaos Technology

Our Controlled Chaos bullet is designed to penetrate to a specific depth and then fracture. This fracturing is initiated when the internal hydraulic pressure exceeds the hoop strength of the nose design.

At the time of fracture, a massive energy spike is released as the particles break away and radiate outward from the initial trajectory path.

This energy spike and the resulting temporary cavity send a shock wave through the animal’s circulatory and nervous systems, immediately shutting down the functioning of these systems.

LehighDefenseControlledFracturing

Our Controlled Fracturing Technology (The originator of CF Technology)

Our Controlled Fracturing bullet is designed to deliver maximum terminal performance. This is made possible by pre-stressing the solid copper or solid brass bullets at specific points so that, after a predetermined penetration depth, the razor-edge petals deploy, releasing an energy spike, separating and radiating outward from the primary path of the bullet.

The bullet shank, now back to bore diameter, continues penetrating straight and deep along the initial impact path.

ABOUT LEHIGH DEFENSE

Lehigh Defense is driven by a desire to transform. Throughout our 20+ year history, we’ve designed, tested, redesigned and perfected many new firearm and ammunition technologies, all in the name of advancing the industry. As our reputation has grown, Lehigh has continued to investigate and improve upon our most revolutionary ammunition. Building on the predictability of our Controlled Fracture technology, we now produce personal defense ammunition with exceptional terminal and barrier performance. As a result, this revolutionary projectile has earned a reputation for outstanding bystander safety with law enforcement officials and military personnel. Visit: www.lehighdefense.com

Press Release: A True Damascus 1911

Cabot Guns To Display a Folded Steel Damascus Pistol

Looking for something unique to write about? Here’s another first from Cabot Guns, a true folded steel Damascus 1911 on display at SHOT 2014, Booth 508.

To our knowledge the Cabot Damascus 1911 is the first traditional folded steel Damascus pistol ever produced.  Other pistols described as Damascus are formed from powdered Damascus, not the real thing. 

Born from a 50 layer block of American artisan made stainless steel by master Damascus craftsman Chad Nichols, the Cabot Damascus 1911 represents a new achievement.  Extraordinary to machine and grind this may be the one and only pistol to ever be produced from true traditional folded Damascus steel. 

A sign of wealth since biblical times, Damascus steel was used to create the weapons of Kings and Chieftains.  Valued for it’s beauty and strength, Damascus steel was not only an indication of power by it’s holder but was also considered to contain mythical properties.  It is with this inspiration we have crafted this 1911.

The grips for this pistol are also a work of art.  Commissioned from sculptor and artist Brian Challis, the grips on the Cabot Damascus 1911 are created from an ancient tooth of the wooly mammoth.  Other refined details include the Cabot Tri-Star trigger with a rounded front pad knurled on a rounded and radius pattern, yet another engineering feat.

See you at SHOT! – Cabot Guns – Booth 508

Cabot Guns’ 1911 pistols represent a new standard in the firearms industry. They are the implementation of prideful engineering and precision manufacturing in all that we create; 100% American product; from the American born solid blocks billet steel which forms the backbone of allCabot Guns, to the workers plying their precision trade in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania.
