The Long and Short of HK’s New Pistols

The Heckler & Koch VP9 has rapidly become one of the most sought after pistols on the market just a few short years after its introduction. The striker fired polymer frame handgun – something HK knows well, having introduced the world’s first such pistol, the HK VP70 in 1970 – was more affordable than previous HK offerings without sacrificing any of the quality or reliability that the company’s firearms have become known for. What was lacking from their lineup, though, were pistols of different sizes and for different purposes. Competition shooters yearned for a longslide version and police officers and

Smith and Wesson M&P M2.0 Review v1.0

Smith and Wesson M&P M2.0 Review v1.0

The most talked about Smith and Wesson product at SHOT 2017 was the M&P M2.0, the company’s first major update to the M&P pistol line since its introduction in 2005. While the M&P had made major inroads upon the law enforcement and concealed carry markets, it was not received without criticism. Some aftermarket parts had become so popular that they were almost considered by some to be required upgrades to a box-stock M&P. Smith and Wesson took notice of this and has attempted to address the areas most people sought to upgrade. Here we review in a brief, initial manner

Hudson H9 Review: Padawan, Not Master

Photo Credit: The Firearm Blog Few products received more attention among gun journalists at SHOT 2017 than the Hudson H9. The buzz in the waiting line was that the pistol resulted from throwing a Glock and a 1911 into a volcano at the moment of eruption. With the double stack mag and reliability of a Glock and the trigger of a 1911 with some new design elements unlike any other pistol, it’s everything a pistol shooter could ever want, right? Yes… if it delivers on those promises. In this review based on our initial impressions at SHOT Media Day at

Wilson Combat Strong Favorite To Supply SEAL Sniper Rifles

Well placed sources at SHOT have informed us that in a competition to supply Navy SEALs with 7.62x51mm semi-auto precision rifles, Wilson Combat’s entry has emerged as the leader in both accuracy and reliability. Although scant details can be found on even the existence of a competition, our sources say that Wilson Combat built a lightweight and highly functional AR-10 type rifle which beat out entries which undoubtedly included FN Herstal, HK, LaRue, Sig Sauer, and others. When asked for comment, a Wilson Combat representative responded, “I can’t comment at this time on any potential or pending military contracts.” The

Army Chooses New Handgun – P320 Becomes M17

In what is certain to be one of the most important small arms contracts of the last few decades, the US Army announced on Thursday that Sig Sauer of New Hampshire had been awarded a $580 million contract under the XM17 Modular Handgun System program. The program had been under fire in recent years, even being brought up by multiple Senators during the recent confirmation hearings of General James Mattis as the potential Secretary of Defense, with comments from the Senators that the program was an example of procurement processes in dire need of overhaul. Whether or not the decision

A New Precision Adjustable Stock – Magpul News

While competitive shooters of any platform understand just how much the little changes can affect accuracy, the average shooter doesn’t always consider every variable. The fact is, most factory weapons are just fine as they are, providing enough accuracy for target practice and many times meeting or exceeding professionals expectations. Despite this, the growth of the gun industry has allowed for more shooters than ever to really pay attention to the components they use. Whether for professional or personal use, finding the right parts can have a major impact on your performance. Among those parts, a new Magpul PRS Gen
