Remington 1911 R1
100 Years and Still Strong
The Remington-branded 1911 R1 is an A1 variant of the 1911 with modern upgrades. Like the original 1911, the 1911 R1 has a flat mainspring housing, short trigger and double diamond grips. 1911 devotees will appreciate the modern enhancements, such as a flared and lowered ejection port; beveled magazine well; loaded chamber indicator; high-profile, dovetailed single-dot front and two-dot rear sights; a crisp 3.5- to 5-pound trigger pull; and a match-grade stainless-steel barrel and barrel bushing. It also has the Series 80-style firing-pin block safety.
Springfield XDM 3.8
A Sure Classic for the Next Century
Springfield’s XDM 3.8 comes standard with a loaded-chamber indicator that allows the shooter to verify visually or by touch — and without a doubt — whether there is a round in the chamber, allowing the XDM 3.8 to fire only when the shooter has a firm grip on the pistol. The Ultra Safety Assurance (USA) trigger system guards against accidental discharge from dropping or bumping by locking the XD’s trigger in place until direct, rearward pressure is applied. The XDM 3.8 is available in a 4.5-inch .45 ACP, 4.5-inch 9mm, 4.5-inch .40 S&W, 3.8-inch .40 S&W, 3.8-inch 9mm and 3.8-inch 9mm Compact.
Bushmaster Firearms ACR
Ready to Customize
The ACR redefines the term “modular” with the extraordinary ability to change calibers, barrel lengths and stock configurations in minutes — without the use of tools. New for 2011, the ACR platform has been expanded to include the ACR Optics Ready Carbine (ORC), ACR Basic Folder and ACR “State Compliant” versions. Although Bushmaster offers more options and variants than we have space to list, the basic configuration starts with a 16.5-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel (1:7- and 1:9-inch twist available); adjustable, two-position gas-piston-driven system for suppressed or unsuppressed fire; tool-less, quick-change barrel system available in 10.5-, 14.5-, 16.5- and 18-inch lengths and in multiple calibers; front/rear flip sights; and a free-floating monolithic top rail for optic mounting, just to name a few.
Colt Defense AR-15A3
The Next Generation
The AR-15A3 is an exceptional patrol rifle with tactical accuracy chosen by federal, state and local agencies. The 16.1-inch heavy barrel with 1:9-inch rifling twist allows flexibility in ammunition selection. The telescopic buttstock adjusts to four positions to enhance mobility and fit for a wider range of operators. In position, the removable carrying handle provides an M16A4 target-style sight adjustable for windage and elevation to 600 meters. The tactical carbine is the answer to the requirements of modern law enforcement. The AR-15A3 is chock full of features, including a direct gas operating system, straight-line construction for reduced recoil, muzzle compensator, flattop receiver for accessories or a removable carry handle, two 20-round magazines and more.of the .40-caliber Px4.
Beretta Cx4 Storm
Ultimate Ambidextrous Weapon
The Beretta Storm family was launched in 2003 with the Cx4 pistol-caliber carbine. Today’s shooter demands a gun that can accept a large assortment of accessories, and the Cx4 meets the challenge. A retractable Picatinny rail extends from the fore-end for mounting tactical lights. Picatinny rails can be mounted on either side (one side rail is included) and the bottom of the fore-end for lasers or forward grips. A full-length aluminum top rail is included for mounting optics. The Cx4 Storm features a unique design allowing the user to reverse ejection and extraction with no special tools or additional parts. Combined with the reversible safety and magazine buttons, this makes the Cx4 the ideal solution for left-handed shooters. The Cx4 accepts the Beretta family of pistol magazines in various capacities, from the 20-round mags of the 92 and Px4 pistols to the 17-rounders of the .40-caliber Px4.
Strum Ruger LC9
Smooth from Holster to Draw
The LC9 is a double-action-only, hammer-fired, locked-breech pistol with a smooth trigger pull. The LC9 was not developed to include every feature, just the most useful ones. The LC9 is compact — just slightly larger (less than 1 inch in both height and length) than the popular LCP. The rugged construction features a blued, through-hardened alloy-steel slide and black, one-piece grip frame. Sighting is improved with the dovetailed, high-visibility 3-Dot Sight System with windage-adjustable rear sight and fixed front sight. Safety features include an internal lock, manual safety and loaded-chamber indicator that provides visual and tactile indication of whether the chamber is loaded.
SIG Sauer P290
9mm Firepower in a Pocket Pistol
SIG Sauer’s polymer-frame, lightweight pistol brings reliability to a new backup pocket-carry pistol. Unlike many small pistols, the P290 features drift-adjustable sights in standard Sig Sauer dovetails. This gives shooters the option of either standard contrast sights or SIGLite night sights. Designed as a pocket or backup pistol, the P290 features a double-action-only trigger for reliability and safety. Magazine capacity is six rounds with the standard flush-fit magazine, and an optional eight-round extended-capacity magazine is planned. Despite its small size and weight (20.5 ounces with magazine), the P290 offers a reversible magazine catch that is left-hand adjustable.
Smith & Wesson M&P
Making the Best Better
The M&P pistol sports two sets of sights for both daytime and low-light shooting. Chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W, the polymer pistol retains original design features, including interchangeable grips and ambidextrous controls. The M&P40 and M&P9 VTAC pistols come standard with a 4.25-inch barrel; polymer frame; and a durable, PVD-coated stainless-steel slide. The M&P9 VTAC is standard with a 17+1 capacity and an unloaded weight of 24 ounces, while the M&P40 has a 15+1 capacity and slightly heavier weight of 24.25 ounces. On top of the slide, the M&P VTAC pistols sport a two-in-one fiber optic and tritium night sight with the VTAC Warrior rear and front sights.
FNH Firearms FNP-45 Tactical
A Bold Statement
Developed for the U.S. Joint Combat Pistol Program (JCP), the FNP-45 Tactical offers .45 ACP performance and a host of unique features no other handgun can match. The checkered polymer frame has a low bore axis for reduced felt recoil and enhanced operator control. All operating controls are fully ambidextrous for ease of use. The 5.3-inch, stainless-steel barrel has a threaded muzzle to accept sound suppressors, compensators and other accessories. The FDE stainless-steel slide has high-profile combat sights and includes two mounting bases to accept multiple styles of optional red-dot electronic sights.
Glock 17 Gen4
Not Your Daddy’s Glock
The Gen4 is based on a full-size G17/G22 MBS (multiple backstrap) frame with a reduced short-frame trigger mechanism housing. The multiple backstrap system allows the user to change the circumference of the grip to fit his or her individual hand size. The grip angle of the Glock “Safe Action” Pistol is not changed by backstrap modifications. The magazine release catch of the Gen4 is reversible and enlarged. The reversible magazine allows users to switch the catch to the left or right side of the pistol with no additional parts. Internally, the original recoil spring has been replaced with a dual-recoil spring assembly. The dual-recoil spring assembly noticeably reduces recoil while simultaneously increasing the life cycle of the assembly.
Performance the First Time, Every Time
The ultra-reliable ARGO system incorporated into the Benelli MR1 provides reliability for the U.S. military and makes the MR1 the best home-defense rifle available. Built to the same tough military specifications and embodying the solid reliability that the U.S. Marines rely upon, the MR1 has no equal among home-defense weapons. It features a stainless-steel, self-cleaning piston that operates directly against the rotating bolt, thereby eliminating the need for complex linkages. The piston-driven system incorporates a gas port located just forward of the chamber, where the gases are hotter and cleaner, resulting in less fouling and more reliable cycling.
