SHOT Show 2013: AWC

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.

SHOT Show 2013: G-Code/HSP

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.

SHOT Show 2013: DEFIANCE

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.

SHOT Show 2013: SPHINX

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).

SHOT Show 2013: CRKT

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.

SHOT Show 2013: ALG Defense ACT

ALG Defense is a spinoff from Geissele Automatics.  The ALG Combat Trigger (ACT) is the same trigger found on the Haley Strategic/BCM Jack Carbine.  I had a chance to check out the Jack Carbine at the Geissele booth and I liked what I felt.  The trigger is based on the stock mil-spec M4/M16 trigger, but is sharper and smoother than the stock trigger.  The great thing here is that the ACT is value oriented and priced at $65.
