SHOT Show 2017: Day 2 Video

SHOT Show stands for Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show, It is held at the Sands convention center at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas NV USA. It is a private INDUSTRY ONLY show. As media, we are invited to come out and see all the new firearms in the Industry so we may bring you the viewer new content.

DAY TWO

This quick 5 minute run thru of what we saw today.  Includes a quick interview with Dead Air Armaments.  I heard that if we wanted to see every booth in this show we could only spend one minute 18 seconds in a booth.  Bad news guys!  We aren’t going to see every booth.  But trust me when I say that we are spending time with the good guys.  Gotta go, lots to see……….

Atticus James is traveling in India for the month of February.  You can follow his adventures at AtticusJames.com.  In the meantime, he has left all of the photos from Shot Show 2016 for those of us left behind to post for him.  (This would explain any issues with photos being mislabeled.  Apologies in advance if this happens).

Name this gun: BCM Europearms CM4 Storm

 

SPECS:

Calibers available: 9mm Luger, 9×21 IMI, .40 S&W
Barrel Length : 6.8inches including muzzle device (175mm)
Overall length: 15.5 inches (395mm)
Weight: 5.2 Pounds (2400g)

Versions available:
CM4 (Carbine)
PM4 (Pistol)

The BCM Europearms PM4 Storm semi-automatic carbine is designed in Italy and has its roots based in the Spectre M4 which was developed by the Italian company SITES in 1980s. This firearm was designed by the same people who designed the Spectre M4 (seen below).

SITES (Società Italiana Tecnologie Speciali S.p.A.) Spectre M4

The BCM Europearms PM4 Storm was designed for the civilian and security markets. The availability outside of Italy is unclear to Gearsofguns.com at this time.

The platform does not have a manual safety since the firearm uses its own proprietary  SA/DA trigger group. The first trigger pull will always be double action only and each subsequent trigger pull will be single action similar to that of a revolvers SA/DA trigger.

MSRP for the pistol is 1200 euro and 1400 euro for the carbine.

Happy Birthday Caleb!

Our very own Caleb had a birthday yesterday and as a gift someone got this young man a Nagant revolver and for those of you are unfamiliar with this pistol it was designed to allow the shooter to use a suppressor.

He will have a write up on this gun at a later point to explain how this all works and why a standard revolver doesn’t work suppressed. 

Caleb is working on getting his threaded so we can get our hands on some suppressors to test out.
