The makers of one of the hottest long range rifles on the market is now going to branch out into the suppressor realm. Desert Tactical Arms is now producing suppressors for .30 and .338 caliber rifles. There are plenty of companies putting out suppressors these days, but the thing that caught my eye with the new DTA suppressors is the weight. The new DTSS (Desert Tactical Sound Suppressor) titanium model weighs only 1.15 lbs, which is pretty light for a .338 suppressor, especially for a one made out of titanium.
The new DTSS attaches to Desert Tactical’s patent pending SRS-QD muzzle break with a ratcheting system similar to those found with other suppressor companies. Also, the .338 DTSS can also be used on a .308 rifle, so a shooter can just install the DTA’s SRS-QD on their .338 and/or .308 rifles and use the one suppressor. There is some POI shift when installing the suppressor of about 2 MOA (2″ at 100 yards), but DTA has claimed that their new DTSS suppressors maintain a .25 MOA accuracy while installed on their rifle, so their new suppressors may even enhanced accuracy. Prices vary from $985 for the .308 stainless steel model to around $1900 for the titanium .338 model.Read More
Woolrich Elite Series Tactical has a new tactically fashionable twill jacket coming out soon. The fastest growing demographic for gun owners is the ever expanding concealed carry movement and Woolrich Elite Series Tactical is catering directly to them. Their new twill jacket can accommodate a pistol with up to a 6″ barrel, making it a little easier for those who like to carry a full sized 1911, but usually don’t considering its bulk.
The Discreet Carry Twill Jacket not only provides room for a pistol, but accessories as well. The inside of the pockets are lined with 45 degree angled accessory loops that are perfect for carrying extra magazines, flight lights, or a baton. There are also an accessory tunnel which runs through it that can provide more room for concealing other items, such a communication wires for plain clothes police officers or security.
The waistband and cuffs are adjustable, and the jacket is lined with polyester and Sherpa liner. The Woolirch Elite Series Tactical Discreet Carry Twill Jacket costs $130 for the S-XXL sizes and $150 for XXXL. You can read the full press release after the break.Read More
MGI, most famous for their Hydra black rifles, has just released a new drop in upgrade for your AR-15. The MGI recoil reducing buffer will help shooters close those rapid shot groups in. The buffer tube replacement isn’t exactly a groundbreaking upgrade, they’ve been around for a while. The most popular buffer replacement being the Endine Hydraulic Buffer; however, unlike the Endine, the MGI buffer tube is completely mechanical.
The MGI recoil reducing buffer does exactly what the name implies; it reduces felt recoil. This effect can prove to be extremely advantageous for AR-15/M4 fully automatic rifles and for competitive shooters. Less recoil means easily controlled follow up shots. Recoil reducing buffers can also help with direct gas impingement AR-15s that are suppressed–the extra cushion from that the upgraded buffer can absorb the increased shock due to the increased gas pressure from the suppressor. The MGI recoil reducing buffer costs $165 and adapters are available for rifle length stocks and .308 (AR-10) rifles for $20.Read More
The .338 Lapua Magnum is the precision caliber of the 21st century. It currently holds the record for longest sniper kill shot, but that shot came from a rifle costing more than $7,000. Most .338 Lapua Magnum rifles will force a shooter dish out over $2,000 just for the chance to own a 1,500+ yard reaching rifle. Now, Savage Arms is going to make that reach out and touch something a little easier on the shooter’s pocket. The new Savage Arms 110 FCP HS Precision rifle has an MSRP of $1,499, making it an very obtainable long range rifle.
The Savage Arms 110 FCP in .338 Lapua features a detachable box magazine that holds 5 rounds, an included one-piece scope rail, and a three baffle muzzle brake. This new .338 Lapua Magnum from Savage has a fluted 26 inch barrel with a 9″ twist and weighs 10.7 lbs unloaded. The 110 FCP HS Precision does include Savage’s patented AccuTrigger, which I find to be a good trigger but with other shooters it seems to be a hit or miss. Either way, with the features it possesses, and the capabilities of its cartridge, the new Savage Arms 110 HS Precision looks to be a good value for those looking to take their long range shooting to the next level.Read More
