It’s that time of year again, the annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Manufacturers from all over the firearm industry are gathering this week to showcase their latest and greatest products. Follow along with us all week as we take a look at some of the best and most unique new products on the showroom floor.
Hi-Point YC380 Yeet Cannon
The Hi-Point YC380 stands for “Yeet Cannon” and is the latest addition to the Yeet family lineup, following the wildly successful YC9. Like all Hi-Points, the YC380 comes with the Hi-Point lifetime warranty. The YC380 carries all of the features and improvements set forth by the original Yeet Cannon, but in a .380 ACP chambering for those who prefer a lighter recoiling platform. Hi-Point firearms are known for dependability and affordability, and the YC380 is sure to not disappoint.
Diamondback Firearms is excited to introduce the latest addition to its lineup, the DB9R TG-Nine. This exceptional 9mm Luger rifle promises a seamless fusion of sleek design and top-notch performance. The TF-Nine combines elements of the AR-15 and Thompson for a unique carbine perfect for plinking at the range or defending the homestead. With a rugged M-Lok forend and attractive wood furniture, Diamondback has created a good blend of tactical and classic features.
Daniel Defense DANIEL H9
The Hudson H9 has returned in a new form with the Daniel Defense DANIEL H9. Based on the original design that gained an almost cult-like following, the new H9 is built better than ever. The 9mm striker-fired design is built on an all metal frame with an incredibly low bore axis, which makes for a very light recoiling firearm. This paired with a straight pull trigger reminiscent of the beloved 1911 makes for one sweet shooting pistol. It’s no doubt that the new optics–ready H9 is sure to be a hit.
Military Armament Corporation 1911-9 DS
Designed by Military Armament Corporation and built by Tisas, the MAC 1911-9 DS has arrived. This double-stack 1911 is ready for any mission, with the factory RMR-pattern optic cut on the slide and M1913 light rail on the frame. The polymer grip module is molded with a subtle but grippy texture, 25 LPI checkering on the front/rear, and has a removable aluminum magwell. Further, this 9mm pistol features a 4.25-inch bull barrel and accepts Staccato-pattern magazines.
Beretta has completely revamped its Bobcat and Tomcat pistol lineup with modern improvements to these classic mouse guns. Starting off, Beretta increased the magazine capacity to 8+1 and moved the magazine release from the heel to a standard thumb button. Additionally, they added more traction to the grips and updated the trigger to make the gun easier and more fun to shoot. The “Trident” trigger drops trigger pull weight and helps you attain the most accuracy out of your gun. With Threaded, Compensated, and Stainless options, the new Bobcats and Tomcats are all optics-ready for a micro red dot sight.
Smith & Wesson 1854 Lever-Action
S&W has introduced its first lever-action rifle, the Model 1854 chambered in .44 Magnum. With a stainless steel barrel and receiver paired with polymer furniture, this is a rugged rifle tough enough to handle all environments. It will also be offered with a glossy DLC finish and wood furniture for those looking for a more classic look. Additionally, the rifle incorporates an M-Lok forend and Picatinny top rail for mounting all of your favorite optics and accessories. The removable magazine tube allows you to safely and easily unload your firearm, so you don’t have to continuously work the action to empty the rifle.
Shadow Systems MR920P and XR920P
Shadow Systems has released two new pistol models with an integrated compensator, the MR920P and XR920P. Based on the popular CR920P carry pistol, the new firearms bring all the same features and improvements to compact and crossover size platforms. Similar in size and design to the Glock 19 and 19X, Shadow Systems brings all of the aftermarket features modern shooters desire right out of the box. The compensator utilizes the same patent-pending quick-detach method, which does not require a threaded barrel, and are designed with a focus on reliability so they can be used with standard factory springs and a variety of bullet weights.
Federal Fusion Tipped Ammo
Federal announced new Fusion Tipped ammunition designed with a polymer tip to increase its ballistic coefficient and flatten trajectory. Additionally, it helps boost downrange energy for improved accuracy and efficacy at longer ranges. This is the perfect cartridge for long-range shooting, where maintaining precision and stability in different environments is essential. New Fusion Tipped ammo will be available in .300 Blackout, .30-06 Springfield, .308 Winchester, 6.5 PRC, 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Winchester, 7mm Rem. Mag., 7mm PRC, and .300 Win. Mag.
Nighthawk Custom Envoy
Nighthawk Custom, builder of high-end 1911 pistols, has released a new model in its Ambassador lineup, the Envoy. Machined from billet steel and hand built in the USA, the Envoy is packed with all the features you’d expect from a custom firearm. The slide features stylish and functional front and rear cocking serrations for racking the slide and press checks. The patented Flush-Fit Magwell allows for speedy reloads while not lengthening the grip. Further, the pistol utilizes a crowned bull barrel and is available in both 9mm and .45 ACP (models in 9mm can be upgraded to a double-stack configuration).
Henry Lever Action Supreme
Henry has blended practical and tactical again with the new Lever Action Supreme .223/5.56 (or .300 Blk) rifle. With beautiful wood furniture and deep blued finish, the rifle certainly draws from classic lines. However, it runs on standard-pattern AR-15 magazines for a welcomed increase in firepower. The barrel is free-floated and threaded, and the rifle features an ambidextrous magazine release. Notably, the design does away with the traditional exposed hammer, and utilizes a rotating bolt for smooth and reliable operation.
Winchester 10mm Auto
Winchester has introduced two new 10mm Auto hollow point options — one geared toward personal defense and one for use in the backcountry. For personal defense, the 180-grain JHP is designed to open and expand quicker, causing more tissue damage and preventing overpenetration. There is also a 200-grain SJHP “Big Bore 10” option optimized for bear defense that penetrates deeper. Both shot accurately and reliably while offering promising potential.
Glock Gen 5 — G49, G29, G30
Glock showcased more of its newer Gen 5 models, namely the G49, G29, and G30. The Glock 49 blends two models users have been asking for for a while, a G17 slide and a G19 frame. This makes for a more concealable pistol that offers the ballistics of a full size. Additionally, Glock added the subcompact 10mm and .45 models to the Gen 5 lineup. The G29 and G30 are now available without finger grooves, dual slide serrations, and the Marksman barrel.
Beretta PX4 GSD and Compact Carry 2
Beretta is updating its PX4 Storm line with the new full-size GSD and Compact Carry 2 models. These new designs feature many of the upgrades and improvements people would perform to their guns, such as ambidextrous controls and decocker-only levers. Additionally, the Compact Carry 2 utilizes a bobbed hammer developed in collaboration with Langdon Tactical. The full-size GSD incorporates a heavy-profile barrel that helps to tame recoil. Further, Langdon Tactical is introducing all new upgraded versions of these models with optic cuts, flat triggers, magwells, and rail-mounted compensators.
Diamondback has announced the new SDR, or Self-Defense Revolver, a 6-shot .357 Magnum snub nose perfect for concealed carry. This lightweight wheel gun incorporates a push-button cylinder release for faster reloading, and comes standard with a fixed orange fiber-optic front sight and dovetail fiber-optic green rear sight. Weighing in at just over 21 ounces, this steel frame revolver is still light enough for carry and comes standard with rubber Hogue grips for a solid feel while shooting.
Benelli SBE 3 Compact Series
Benelli has added new options to its legendary Super Black Eagle 3 lineup with the Compact Series. The Compact Series incorporates the same popular features of the SBE 3, in a shorter overall length and lighter weight. Intended for shooters with a shorter length of pull, the 26-inch barrel semi-auto shotgun has an overall length of 46.25 inches (roughly 1.25-inches shorter than the standard 26-inch SBE 3). The SBE 3 Compact shotguns are available in 12, 20, and 28-gauge versions, and are chambered for 2 ¾ and 3-inch shotshells.
Beretta 92XI GTS
Beretta has added a new model to its 92XI line with the new Twin Safety pistol. The 92XI GTS utilizes the same frame-mounted safety and provides the same crisp single-action pull from the popular XI series. However, it incorporates a decocking function to allow safe carry with the hammer down and a first shot double-action pull. It does so by using a split sear, which acts as two separate sears, that Beretta claims provide the best of both worlds. The 92XI retains parts compatibility with other 92 series pistols and is built off of the slimmer Vertec frame.
Browning SUB22 Ammo
Browning announced its new SUB22 ammunition designed to achieve superior accuracy and functioning in rimfire handguns. The subsonic .22 LR uses a heavier 45-grain bullet weight capable of traveling at 1,060 fps and producing 100 ft/lbs of energy. The round nose black copper-plated projectile reduces fouling and the heavier weight utilizes recoil energy to reliably cycle semi-auto actions. Browning SUB22 is precisely loaded to remain below the speed of sound in handguns, allowing you to get the most noise reduction from your suppressor.
CVA Cascade Varmint Hunter Rifle
CVA has launched the Cascade Varmint Hunter designed specifically for the task. With a medium-heavy barrel contour, wide forend, adjustable stock, and customizable length-of-pull, the Varmint Hunter is easy to adjust to the individual shooter. Additionally, the rifle comes equipped with a 20 MOA top rail for mounting your optic of choice and utilizes high-capacity magazines for all-day fun. The barrel length is between 20 and 22 inches, depending on the chambering, and the rifle is available in .223 Remington, .22-250 Remington, and .243 Winchester, and .204 Ruger.
Leapers Integrix Series
Leapers has expanded its Integrix Series of high-end rifle scopes. The new IX6 3-18X44 34mm FFP mid-power optic shares the same features from the popular IX8 1-8×28 34mm FFP LVPO, but in a smaller, lighter package for closer range work. The Integrix Series offer unchanging eye relief no matter the power setting, and superior clarity and light transmittance. The Integrix Series will add additional 6-36×56 and 4.5-27×56 models later in the year for those who want to stretch out further.
Walther PDP Steel Frame
Walther has released the PDPSF, a steel frame version of the PDP series. Similar to the Q4 SF but with the modularity of the PDP series, this model looks and feels like typical Walther superb quality. Available in 4, 4.5, and 5-inch models, the new PDPs incorporate the same slide serrations and optics cut found on standard models. The SF models even feature grips that mimic the impressive texture on the polymer models. Additionally, the heavier weight aids in recoil control, especially during rapid fire.
Aimpoint ACRO S-2
Aimpoint has now released the new S-2, a red dot designed specifically for shotguns. In contrast to the original Aimpoint P-2 the optic is designed around, the S-2 features a larger 9 MOA dot and variable clamp mount that is able to affix to most vented shotgun ribs on the market. The lightweight and waterproof optic is set within a protective housing to help guard from bumps, scrapes, and the elements. Additionally, the optic incorporates 10 different brightness settings to adapt to different lighting conditions.
S&W Response 9mm Carbine
Smith and Wesson showcased its Response Carbine 9mm PCC and it did not disappoint. The 16.5-inch carbine comes standard with a threaded muzzle and flat-face trigger. With its innovative Flexmag system, shooters are able to utilize a number of different double-stack 9mm pistol magazines, including M&P and Glock pattern. Additionally, the AR-15 style controls are intuitive and familiar to most users. To top it all off, the rifle accepts most standard AR-15 accessories, allowing for complete customization and personalization.
ATI Tritium Loaded Chamber Indicator
American Tactical is now offering a tritium loaded chamber indicator for Glock pistols. This allows shooters to quickly and easily tell whether the chamber is loaded in all lighting conditions. Compatible with Gen 4 and Gen 5 models chambered in 9mm, this ATI Glock style extractor is assembled in the U.S. and ready for use.
Taurus has stepped into the bolt-action market with the release of its Expedition rifle. The Expedition utilizes a Remington 700 series action and is compatible with corresponding aftermarket triggers. Available in .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor, the Expedition features either an 18-inch or 20-inch cold hammer forged barrel, respectively. Both options are drilled and tapped for optics mounting. Additionally, the stock features a built-in M-Lok plate, Spartan Precision mounts, and is Gun-Saddle compatible for steady shooting.
Oracle Arms 2311
Oracle Arms added another model to its recent new lineup, the 2311 Pro. The new Pro models come on the heels of recently introduced standard full-size and compact models, which offer a blend of 2011 and P320 functionality. Offering duty gun reliability with race gun features, the 2311 is a single-action, hammer-fired pistol that accepts SIG P320 magazines. The 7075 aluminum frame is lightweight and durable, and the slide is optimized for optics and ships with multiple cowitnessing adaptor plates. Further, Pro models offer additional optional lightening cuts and a ported barrel to help tame recoil. Although this looks like a blaster from the future, it’s ready to rock today!
