Been scouring the net today for SHOT Show news- liking the news that Colt is bringing back the 10mm Delta Elite and that the Bren Ten is also on the way back thanks to VLTOR. One other item that caught my eye is the Colt New Agent in DAO. Liking the gutter-sights. Still on 1911s, Ed Brown has a Commander-sized Special Forces model out too.
As for the Ruger LCP, I think it's a great idea. Looks like a great concealed carry piece- they're renowned for solid weapons, but I guess we'll have to wait to see how it shoots. Maybe if it sells well we'll see a 9mm down the line.
Dan Wesson has the black Valor 1911 which looks good- waiting to see better quality pictures of that. Like the look of the Kimber SIS range too- particularly the rear sight set-up. What else is there? A 5.7mm upper for the AR. Looks a bit weird but it's designed to accept P90 top-feed magazines. Not a bad idea really- and proof once again that despite the AR's flaws, it's a heck of a versatile system. And speaking of flaws there seem to be a whole range of piston uppers available now too; I'd say that the AR is here to stay for another decade or so yet.
One item that really intrigues me is the Magpul Glock Folding Carbine- heard it referred to as a Transform 9. Are they actually planning on making a production run or is it more of a "concept gun"? It's a very clever and neat little package. And what's the deal with the PDW they were developing- any progress?
One thing I haven't been able to find is any knife news- anything happening on that front?
