What’s up Shooters,
Saturday night during the UFC fight, a friend and I were discussing when are we going to see Glock come out with something that will compete directly against factory products like the M&P C.O.R.E. line of pistols or FN’s FNX-45 Tactical.
Wonder no more because Kiesler Police Supply may have had a negligent discharge and announced they will have the Glock line of MOS (Mounted Optic Solution?) pistols available. The models that we know of so far are the 34, 35, 40, and 41. All are Gen 4 pistols. Pictures show they will accept popular red dots like the Trijicon RMR, Leupold DeltaPoint, and Bushnell First Strike. Hopefully, I’ll see these on display at SHOT Show.

Glock G41 MOS
Glock G40 MOS Hunter
I’d love to throw a ported barrel in the 34 or 35 and run it in USPSA Open Division, but sadly, because of the California DOJ’s Roster and the elimination of SSE, Californian’s will not likely see these in their local store (cue sad violin music)
It will be interesting to see how this will affect the aftermarket industry that have made a name for themselves milling out slides to mount red dots.
What do you guys think? Leave your comments below.
I just picked up a Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifle and my jaw just dropped when I saw that AWC had done an integrally suppressed Takedown.
The suppressor core is removeable and I believe it can then be used in a separate can body.
I had a chance to check out the INCOG holster jointly developed by Haley Strategic and G-Code and it looks like a very well thought out holster. From the angled belt clips to the addition of a spacer to push the heel of the pistol, everything is designed to push the gun closer to the body to aid in concealment. I wasn’t able to try the holster on, but will get one soon to give it a try.
It was also at the KRISS booth that I then noticed the H.A.L.O H3 Adaptive Luminescent Optic sights made by DEFIANCE. The sight is a tritium and fiber optic hybrid, but unlike any other that I’d seen up to this point. The tritium is housed inside an aluminum cylinder which is then nested inside a fiber optic tube. The fiber optic tube is available in either green or red and is highly visible. I’ve been using an Ameriglo ProGlo front sight with 10-8 rear sight with good results, but would love to give the H.A.L.O. sights a run.
As I was walking past the KRISS booth, I spotted the SPHINX logo and my friend Shin had told me since I’m active in competitive shooting, I should take a look at this line of Swiss made pistols very similar to CZ. The competition model had some serious heft to it so I can see how it would do well in USPSA Production division. Having not shot either CZ or SPHINX, I think the comparative CZ pistol would be the CZ SP-01 (anyone having more experience with these pistols are welcome to correct me).
ITW worked in collaboration with Austrialpin is coming out with a 100% polymer cobra buckle. This is a great alternative is you are looking to save weight or need a non-metalic, non-marring belt buckle. They will be available for webbing in 1.5”, 1.75”, and 2”. Made in the USA.
Heard it will be out sometime in February. (sorry for the bad phone pic)
I’m a fan of James Williams collaborations with CRKT and this year, they introduced two new models, The Otanashi noh Ken Folder and the Sakimori Fixed Blade. The folder is a bit large for EDC, but due to the position of the pocket clip, the knife conceals itself easily.
Paracord bracelets are great for making sure you have some paracord handy just in case, but what if it offered something a little extra…. say a survival saw? Enter the Onion Survival Para-Saw. Concealed within the paracord, is a tungsten carbide coated wire saw. Awesome.
Side by side and over? That’s right! This just made my wish list. Chiappi Triple Threat.
