Posted: January 18, 2020After years of quiet and painstaking development, we are very excited to announce for 2020, the Imperial Arms CYPHER and CYPHERX virgin upper receivers. Legally use your 16s or 17s components to assemble a pistol, SBR, rifle, or post sample registered receiver MG. In addition, injection molding tooling is being finalized for a UMP, B+T, and SB Tactical brace adapter, compatible with factory Scar receiver extensions. Estimated availability of late winter/early spring. We thank you all for your support and can’t wait to share other upcoming P90 and Scar related projects that have been cooking up in our lab! Before Imperial Arms, there was really only one other person making their own SCAR receiver. Otto Arms made his own MK20 style extended receiver. Years before FN offered their SCAR 20S. We saw his custom MK20 at the FN SCAR Owners group shoot back in 2017.Read more »

The Glock 44 is the company's first foray into rimfires and appears a solid choice for an economical trainer.
How Does The Glock 44 Measure Up To Other Rimfires:
- Dimensionally mirrors the Glock 19
- Lightweight, only tipping the scales around 12 ounces
- Tested to work with a multitude of different ammunition
A new Glock gun? Depending on who you are, you’re either doing backflips or gritting your teeth. No matter where you stand on the Glock spectrum (lover or hater), you'll have to agree the prolific pistol maker has certainly gone a different route with its latest addition.
The Glock 44 is the company’s first foray into rimfire pistols and is most certainly made with economical training in mind. The .22 LR handgun is styled after the 5th Generation Glock 19, mimicking the same operation and feel of the ubiquitous pis

Posted: December 02, 2019Tesla’s newest creation is looking to disrupt the current truck market. Elon Musk unveiled their newest “Cybertruck” and included a bold new claim that the new Cybertruck was also bulletproof. Tesla Unveils New “Bulletproof” Cybertruck The new truck is made out of a single form stainless steel alloy, that Musk claimed enabled the truck to be “literally bulletproof” stating the following. That alloy enables the car to be “literally bulletproof” against at least smaller firearms, including 9-millimeter handguns From there the presentation stumbled forward into even stranger territory. A man was invited to hit both sides of the truck with a sledgehammer. The Cybertruck appeared to be un-phased by this attack. But then a metal ball was thrown at the windows which were quickly broken.Musk was quick to counter the window break. Stating clearly that the metal baRead more »

Kimber first introduced the Micro in .380 ACP in 2013, and many models of that pistol are still available, but this is America — we want everything bigger, faster and louder. Meet the Kimber Micro 9 ESV and KHX.
It wasn’t long before the success of the original Micro convinced the folks at Kimber to upsize it for the 9mm cartridge. Counting the models direct from them and through distributor exclusives, Kimber is now offering over 20 variations of the Micro 9. But Kimber is introducing two more — the Micro 9 Enhanced Slide Variant (ESV) and the Micro 9 KHX.
Before we get to the specifics of the two new models, let’s look at the genetics of the Micro 9 family. All pistols are single-action, 1911-style semiautomatics, with all of the proportio

Modeled after Bergara's popular centerfire line, the B-14R delivers the same supreme accuracy except in .22 LR.
What Features Makes The B-14R An Accurate Shooter:
- 18-inch heavy barrel
- HMR stock featuring mini chassis
- Fully adjustable LOP and cheek rise
Over a relatively short period, Bergara has taken the centerfire rifle world by storm. Now the Spanish/American gunmaker is shooting to do the same when it comes to rimfires. And boy, does the company’s second .22 unveiled this year look like a doozy.
As its name suggests, the B-14R .22 LR is based on Bergara’s popular line of centerfires. With that comes all the bells and whistles to help the precision plinker shoot a country mile: bull barrel, fully-adjustable stock, oversized tactical bolt handle and threaded muzzle. The stock deserves a bit more comment. In add

For decades, double-action semi-automatic pistols have fallen into two distinct categories: traditional double-action/single-action (DA/SA) and double-action-only (DAO). The virtues of each design are unique, as are their shortcomings. A recent entry that affords shooters the capabilities of both systems in one handy package is the Grand Power P11 in 9 mm Luger—a compact handgun whose method of operation can be selected with the sweep of a lever.
At first glance, the P11 appears to be just another polymer-frame, double-stack 9 mm, but a closer look reveals some unique and interesting features. The design has two elements that set it apart from other handguns in its class: a rotating-barrel locking system and the aforementioned s

First on my list was to research the product line to figure out which pistol I wanted to explore. Once I saw their lineup, I didn’t know which one to pick. The line includes single-stack 1911 pistols with 3.5-, 4.25- and 5-inch barrels. The 4.25- and 5-inch pistols are offered with the standard 1911 frame or the tactical frame featuring a square triggerguard and a rail. The 3.5-inch models are only offered with the standard 1911 frame. All models are offered in both 9mm and .45 ACP.
A variety of finishes are available on the pistols: black oxide, Cerakote flat dark earth (FDE), boron nitride and a two-tone version with a bare stainless steel frame and black Cerakote slide. All DDA 1911s are built on a 4140 investment-cast frame and a 4140 barstock slide.
The frames feature 22 lines per inch (LPI) frontstrap checkering and NBD grips by DDA. The slides feature ove
