Will be in Dallas to cover the 147th NRAAM event for Guns.com this week. With some 800 exhibitors from big name companies to collector groups and 80,000 in attendance, there is sure to be something of interest. If there is anything you are curious about or want me to check out, hit me at email@example.com and I’ll get back with you.
Gemtech last month brought out a sweet new production Nemo Arms AR upper that includes a pinned suppressor body and titanium core– with an all up barrel length that’s still firmly in the carbine arena.
I shot the Integra, shown off for the first time in public, at the ASA Suppressor Shoot in Knob Creek and have to admit its wicked quiet in .300BLK when using one of Gemtech’s suppressor optimized BCGs which reduces carrier speed to non-suppressed levels and reduces felt recoil.
How quiet? It mics at 128dB, and for comparison, dry-firing an unloaded AR is 124dB…
The upper features a 10.1-inch barrel with suppressor tube pinned and welded onto the end to make it 16.1-inches overall and thus a “one-stamp” device.
The core can be removed for cleaning and maintenance. Removal is by a 3/8″ socket.
It costs a good bit more than the similar concept over at Hardened Arms, but this is Gemtech here and we are talking about a Nemo upper for a base, so there’s that.
With over 800 booths and vendors, the sprawling National Rifle Association Annual Meeting and Exhibits in Louisville two weeks ago had something for everyone– especially collectors.
Tucked away in the “6000s” the collector section at NRAAM took up one almost forgotten corner of the Kentucky Exposition Center but for those who were lucky enough to find it, the assemblage of collectors, auction houses and relic curators had a rare firearm exhibit open to the public rivaling anything you could see in a museum.
Yup, that time of year again.
Headed to cover the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, KY filled with ranges, the Leadership Forum with everyone from Trump to Ron Paul speaking, the counter-protest by gun control advocates, and other such fun.
Actually looking forward to running into Maj. John L. Plaster, U.S. Army, (Ret.), sniper guru-extraordinaire and attending his Sniping in Vietnam seminar. It’s the little things.
Will keep you all bored to tears with imagery and anything new (or old but interesting) that I run across.
