FN Herstal is going to bring their striker fired FNS-9 to  America.  The good news, its coming this year; the bad, is that its only going to be available to law enforcement.  I would expect FNH to allow the general populous to acquire one shortly after though.  Check out the video below of FNH’s champion 3-gun shooter Larry Houck at the Bianchi Cup talking about FNH’s FNS-9.

Magpul Japanese Relief Patch

Magpul and Mil-spec Monkey have teamed up to support Japan’s disaster victims that were rocked in March by a massive earthquake only to be followed up by equally devastating tsunamis.  Personally I have always respected Magpul as an epitomizing example of what a great American company is–great American made products inspired from innovation at a price that makes them obtainable for anyone that wants to purchase them.  Practicing some much needed social responsibility is just another reason to admire Magpul.

These new patches are very conservatively priced at only $6 each and all profits go directly to the Red Cross and other organizations providing relief efforts to the Japanese community.  The patch’s design is a spin-off of the “Army Strong” slogan that features the Japanese kanji for Strength within brushstrokes that represent the Japanese flag.  Magpul and Mil-spec Monkey are doing there part, Gunblog.com readers should do theirs as well.  Buy a couple of patches and help support disaster victims in Japan.   You can buy the patches here:  Magpul Japanese Relief Patch.

CCI .22 Long Rifle AR Tactical

CCI is probably the most popular and reliable rimfire ammunition brand sold today and it would only make sense that they make ammunition specifically for the plethora of .22 lr tactical(-cool) rifles flying off the shelves.  CCI’s new .22 Long Rifle AR Tactical ammunition is aimed directly at these tactical rimfire rifles to give them something accurate and reliable to spit out.  During CCI’s testing, they were able to achieve 1.5 inch groups with 10 rounds at a 100 yards using a Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22, which is pretty impressive for rimfire ammunition.

The CCI .22 LR AR Tactical ammunition features a 40 gr. target bullet that has a copper-plated round nose making it feed easier in AR type rifles chambered in .22 lr.  The round produces 1200 ft/sec of muzzle velocity, 82 ft-lbs of force at 100 yards, and a -6.2 inch drop at 100 yards if zeroed at 50 yards. The new CCI .22 LR AR Tactical comes in boxes of 375 rounds and costs $20 a box.

Troy Industries Battlemag

Troy Industries are now selling one serious .223/5.56 magazine dubbed the Battlemag.  After seeing what Troy Industries did to its new magazine, I would say it completely deserves its name.  The new Troy Battlemag features reinforced feed lips and anti-tilt follwers and  a robust floor plate which is flush with the magazine making it less likely that the battlemag will snag on other magazines in your pouches.

This new ridiculously durable magazine is available in the normal tacti-cool colors of flat dark earth, OD green, and of course black.  Troy’s battlemags were designed to fit all M4/M16/Ar-15 type rifles along with the HK416 (MR556A1 civilian version) and FN SCAR 16s.  The Battlemags come in packs of 3 at $42 which also includes a limited lifetime warranty. Check the video below of the Troy Battlemag taking some serious damage while still functioning afterwards.
