Got to bump into some groovy hardware last week
So I hung out at NRA Show for a few days last week. Got to see some cool new stuff and write about it.
Including Springfield Armory’s new XD-E hammer fired compact 9mm single stack
Which complemented FN’s new 509.
Then there was Colt’s new 70 series Gold Cup Trophy and Competition models (yup, no firing pin block).
And Savage’s Fox A Grade SXS double shotgun series, which are really sweet and feature bone and charcoal case color-finished receivers over black walnut furniture (though original Foxes are cheaper).
But the coolest thing (that I am soon going to be T&E’ing, squeeeee) is Remington’s Tac-14 870 that I was able to get the first media peek at while touring Big Green’s Huntsville Factory prior to the show.
At 26.25 inches overall and with a Raptor Shockwave pistol grip, the 12-gauge’s 14-inch cylinder bore barrel is not a National Firearms Act regulated item as it is a “firearm” and not an SBS or AOW, thus no tax stamp is required under federal law, though state and local laws may apply.
I will for sure keep you posted on that one…
