  1. H&K Trying to Press Americans’ Buttons With the New VP9-B Pistol

    Many people don’t know that it was H&K – not Glock – that designed the first polymer-framed, striker fired pistol. The HK VP70 (or “Volkspistole 70”, which translates to “the people’s pistol,” with the “70” designating the year of design) was designed in 1970, beating Gaston’s legendary Glock 17 to market by over a decade. It was produced until 1989.The VP70 most likely didn’t take off as well as the Glock most likely because, while the polymer-striker combo was innovative, the operating system was an uncouth straight blowback, like a Hi-Point pistol, rather than the more sophisticated Browning short recoil system as seen in the Glocks. This resulted in a heavy slide, a heavy-weight recoil spring, and the VP70 also had a heavy double action trigger that was universally loathed. But don’t take my word for it: Alex Capps, notorious and confessed HK

  2. R2D2 Gatling gun

    The aft close-in weapons system on the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima reminds me of R2D2 in Star Wars. A close-in weapon system, or CIWS for short, is a point-defense weapon system for detecting and destroying incoming missiles and enemy aircraft which may have penetrated the outer defenses. Works good on drones, too. Phalanx CIWS with M61 Gatling gun A gun-based CIWS – pronounced “sea-whiz” – usually consists of a combination of radars, computers, and multiple-barrel, rotary rapid-fire cannons placed on a rotating gun mount. It can be missile-based as well, but the CIWS pictured clearly isn’t. To the best of my knowledge the CIWS pictured is a Phalanx CIWS, using a 6-barrel 20×102 mm caliber M61 Vulcan Gatling cannon. The rate of fire? The M61A1 does up to 6 000 rounds per minute and the M61A2 is a li

  3. The New Glock 45

    GLOCK, Inc. announced a new addition to the 9X19 family of pistols featuring the latest in design and engineering seen in the 5th Generation of GLOCK pistols. The GLOCK 45 combines the fast handling of the GLOCK 19 compact-sized slide with the full-size frame as a compact Crossover. Taking on the Crossover design of the GLOCK 19X and the superior GLOCK hard-surface finish in non-reflective black, the G45 makes the ultimate service pistol. “After the release of the G19X, we saw a strong interest from the law enforcement community for the design in a black model,” said GLOCK, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey.“ The G45 is the result of a design that meets the demanding level of reliability with distinctive Gen5 design enhancements to improve durability, accuracy and performance to those who go into harm’s way where fractions of a second matt

    We had a very ingenious customer who bought one of our non reciprocating uppers to use on his Rock River LAR-47 lower only to discover the Gibbz Arms receiver is not compatible with the LAR-47 receiver. But Michael Bolton was able to machine the receiver to widen the opening of the upper to accept the AK mags. Thanks Michael Bolton for the pictures and inventiveness
