Looking for a new iron or piece of kit to enhance the one you already own? Check out these 7 new bits of guns and gear to grow your firearms wish list.
The New Guns And Gear:
Remington Golden Saber 10mm
Overpowering nearly any other commercially popular pistol cartridge, the 10mm gives those who can wield it effectively a definitive edge. Unveiling a 180-grain Golden Saber option in the hard-hitting pistol cartridge, the self-defense “Perfect 10” just got a little more perfect. Loaded with Remington’s famous bonded-core bullet, the ammunition offers a hollow-point option that not only expands like the dickens but also retains a majority of its weight at the target. This means larger and deeper wound cavities that increase the odds of neutralizing a threat. Additionally, the loads are fairly balanced for maximum terminal effect and shooter controllability, with a muzzle velocity of 1,150 fps.
MSRP: $48, box of 20
Meopta MeoSight IV
Improving accuracy, target acquisition and follow-up shot speed, the simple aiming solution of a red-dot performs wonders. Meopta offers a solid option with its smallest and lightest micro red-dot—the MeoSight IV. Weighing only 1.2 ounces, the MeoSight IV has a length of 1.89 inches and a width of 1.41 inches, the 3-MOA red dot proves anything but cumbersome on a pistol. Its 30,000 hours of run life on a single battery and automatic illumination setting mean it’s always ready regardless the conditions.
While not on the market yet, Holosun is giving shooters an entirely new way of looking at red-dots. The Digital Reflex Sight (DRS) is a hybrid sighting system, marring the fast acquisition aiming system with thermal and night vision options. It’s a pretty intriguing system, with the company’s popular AEMS closed emitter forming the base and a fairly intuitive system to transition between normal red-dot and thermal/NV. The DRS-TH (thermal model) and DRS-NV (night vision) could prove game changers and definitely have the potential to enhance home defense, among other things.
MSRP: Expected to start at $1,000
940 Pro Tactical/Holosun Micro Dot Combo
The 940 has already made a name for itself as a nearly flawless running semi-auto, and the Pro Tactical puts the shotgun’s firepower and ease of use into a perfect package to guard hearth and home. Now, Mossberg has sweetened the deal, offering the scattergun factory outfitted with a Holosun Micro Red Dot. It’s a definite upgrade for the 940 that takes advantage of its milled optic-ready receiver. Tailored for CQC, the Pro Tactical is a terse 37 inches in length, boasts a 7+1 capacity, has an adjustable length-of-pull and chambers up to 3-inch 12-gauge shells.
FN Rush 9Ti
In the close confines of the home, a suppressor can prove an excellent defensive upgrade—mitigating recoil and avoiding shell shock from a pistol’s report. FN America now offers civilian shooters this advantage. The company’s first commercial suppressor (it’s made them for militaries only in the past), the Rush 9Ti is designed to enhance nearly any 9mm pistol with a relatively svelte and light suppressor. Mountable on any 1/2×28 threaded muzzle, the titanium can with an aluminum and stainless-steel baffle stack comes in at just under 11 ounces. Furthermore, its 1.3-inch diameter offers a fairly clear line of sight on most pistols, while its 7.3-inch length keeps it relatively wieldy.
Oracle Arms 2311
If the 1911 and Sig P320 had a love child, it’d likely look like the Oracle Arms 2311. New to the scene, Oracle Arms’ enhanced-capacity pistol brings together the best of what each of the classics has to offer. Available in five models, perhaps the biggest selling point is its P320 magazine capacity, giving the metal-framed gun plenty of firepower on board—15+1 in its Compact model, 21+1 in its Combat Elite and Competition models. The 9mm line also has a snappy single-action trigger, enhanced 1911 ergonomics, simple linkless barrel and bushing-free design, and a hammer (because everyone loves hammers!).
MSRP: Starting at $1,700
The new Sig Rose serves up an attractive and enhanced option meant to get first-time women shooters up to speed … fast. The pistol is a P365 with a touch of rose-gold accents, an understated rose motif on the grip and available in both 9mm and .380 ACP. However, there’s more to it than just a heater. The Rose is sold as a complete package, which comes with two magazines, a TSA-approved Vaultek Lifepod pistol safe, five polymer dummy rounds for dry-fire practice, a mag loader and access to the QuickStart guide and online training series. Overall, it’s a fairly solid system for those just getting into the shooting game.
