Glock 30S

GLOCK has a new model, the G30S (Slim), originally designed for an elite law enforcement unit and a great firearm for concealed carry. The GLOCK Engineers took the slender GLOCK 36 in .45 AUTO and paired it with parts from the big-bore GLOCK 30 SF. The GLOCK 30S has a 10+1 capacity magazine and can also except the GLOCK 21 magazine that holds 13 rounds.

After examining the G30S I was not disappointed, it has the external qualities from GLOCK you have grown accustom to; the paradigm-setting polymer receiver, The GLOCK SAFE ACTION fire control system, allowing the shooter to use three independent automatic safeties fast; a super-hard, corrosion-resistant, low-reflective external finish on the slide, barrel and GLOCK night sights; and the GLOCK standard cold-hammer-forged barrel with octagonal rifling for the .45 AUTO cartridge. When I was walking up to the table the G30S appears identical to a GLOCK 30, but when I reached the booth I noticed the G30S slide was actually thinner then the G30’s.

When I picked up the GLOCK 30S it fit comfortably in my hand, you can feel the Short frame/Gen4 frame design immediately.

Atticus with his larger hands still said it was comfortable in his hands. Over all I really liked the gun and would use it for my own personal carry.

Polymer 1911 frames

I love researching 1911s! The iconic 1911 has long been one of my most admired hand guns, and the amazing amount of variants in its family tree is intriguing. By far the most controversial of these offspring is the polymer framed 1911. By some it is seen as a much-needed leap into the modern firearm industry, while others cry blaspheme. Many people question the logic of purchasing a polymer 1911 on the premise that a Glock or XD can be bought at a much more affordable price. Throughout the last few years, a few prestigious firearm manufacturers have promoted and dropped various polymer 1911 designs and all have been controversial. This years SHOT show has revealed yet another creation in the field of polymer/1911 alchemy.

Rock River Arms (RRA) was caught showing off its new polymer 1911 at this years SHOT show. Their approach includes a textured grip with a 5” slide and steel frame insert billet (both consisting of 4140 steel) on a single stack polymer frame, and weighs in at 2.04 lbs/~36.64 oz. Most polymer 1911s have been double stacked, and as a result, end up having a bulky and generally uncomfortable grip. The RRA 1911 poly stuck closer to that amazing 1911 feel by keeping the thin, single stacked design, but may have also ended up with a very top-heavy pistol because of it. Of course since the polymer frame makes for a lighter firearm, it will also undoubtedly give this .45 a meaner recoil than its stainless counterparts. As always, there is a trade-off between being light weight and having low recoil.

RRA put a good spin on polymer 1911s with this one. Keeping it classic so that it still has the same nostalgic look and feel while also making the whole package lighter was a good move in my opinion. Unfortunately I can’t really say whether or not it is practical until I have handled it, but I for one am going to give it a chance: blaspheme or not.

AAC .300 BLK Honey Badger PDW

AAC Honey badger

SPECS
Caliber: .300 AAC Blackout
Barrel length: 6 inches
Overall Length w/ Suppressor: 24-29 inches
Weight: 6.5 pounds (unloaded)
STOCK: Collapsible
ACTION: Semi-auto
Magazine: Standard AR style magazines

The Advanced Armament Corporation showed off their new Honey Badger at the AUSA expo back in October 2011.

The .300 BLK cartridge was developed as one step forward towards the goal of replacing the MP5-SD with a more accurate and more powerful firearm for our troops and law enforcement officers. As John Hollister said many times when we were out on the range, when officers go in for a high risk warrant they can either take the quiet yet underpowered MP5-SD or the noisy and gigantic AR-15. AAC wanted to make something that had the ease of use of an AR-15 but the portability of a MP5, that could go from subsonic rounds to supersonic rounds with the change of a magazine. The .300 BLK cartridge gave them the round, but the Honey Badger is the final design.

The stock is based on the H&K sliding stock design but adapted for the AR-15 platform and uses a custom designed upper receiver that has slots built in for the rails to slide along. The receiver and stock were both designed by AAC’s R&D gurus at the request of a military organization that shall not be named. The barrel is only about 6 inches in length and affixes to a .30 caliber silencer that is partially hidden under the handguards. Despite the short barrel the weapon exceeds the accuracy of an MP5-SD.

The last time I saw this gun (or at least its parts) it was fresh off the rapid prototyping machine. The finished product looks fantastic, and I have no doubts that we’ll see something similar start to replace the aging MP5-SD.

Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC), Designed the .300 AAC Blackout in 2010 and released in 2011  it was designed to give a .30-caliber cartridge for the M4 platform.

The .300 AAC BLK cartridge was specifically developed for suppressor use

The subsonic 220-grain load offers better terminal ballistics over the traditional 9mm loads.

The .300 AAC Blackout also gives the user the option of using the 125-grain supersonic match ammunition for longer engagements, the 9mm round does not offer this option.

The Honey Badger was developed at the request of SOCOM to replace the HK MP5 and MP7 platforms for CQB and other low-profile operations.

The buffer system was shortened and the lower receiver was modified to accept the custom adjustable stock similar in design to the H&K MP5-SD.

The goal was to develop a PDW with increased lethality while maintaining the approximate dimensions and suppressed signature of the HK MP5SD.

The suppressed Honey Badger is as quiet to the ear as a MP5-SD.

There is a second version of the Multi-Purpose Weapon with a longer handguard that covers the suppressor. The longer handguard allows more space or lights, lasers and other rail attachments.

Q:How much energy are they getting out of that with a 6″ barrel and a subsonic round? What is the weight of the bullet they are using?

A: 220gr round traveling just over of 1000 fps for .300 AAC Blackout compared to a 147gr round which is just under 990fps for MP5-SD.
