ETS Group Release New Glock 42 and 43 Model Magazines

The ETS Group is proud to announce the release of their new line of 42 and 43 Glock® clear polymer magazine models.

Also available are ETS’s 9 and 12 round versions, an industry first! ETS’s GLK-42-9 and GLK-43-9 models are only .75 inches longer than the standard 7-round magazine and allow for a better grip and control of the handgun.

Swab-Its Star Chamber Swabs for AR-15 Platforms

Swab-its® introduces their new Star Chamber Cleaning Foam Swabs™ for AR-15/M4 and similar Modern Sporting Rifles. These unique swabs feature wings that penetrate locking lugs to quickly and easily clean the internal diameter of the barrel extension. Each lint-free and fiber-free tip can be used multiple times and should substantially outlast a similar priced bag of patches, mops, and felt pads. And their handles double as Empty Chamber Indicators (ECI). They are an extraordinary precision cleaning and lubricating tool for the ARl-15/M4 platforms.

Swab-its® line of firearm products are designed and made in the USA to take the pain out of gun cleaning. Swab-its foam swabs are a US patented replacement to the patch, mop, and snake. All Swab-its foam swabs are made with reusable lint-free foam and are washable with degreasing soap and water or mineral spirits and can be used over and over.

Swab-its® Bore-Tips® and Bore-Whips™ come in major calibers, threaded to the standard cleaning rod. They compress as they enter the barrel. Then, as they travel through the barrel, they expand into the rifling with a 360 degree tight bore fit for precision cleaning and lubricating.

Swab-its Gun-tips® are foam swabs designed to clean other parts of firearms. They come in assorted lengths, head sizes, and thickness with their own handles made of robust and flexible polypropylene.

The 3 in 1 9mm Swab-its Bore-Sticks™ are a replacement for the rod, jag and patch. Bore-Sticks™ are caliber-specific and come with their own handle.

Swab-its® will continue to develop more unique gun cleaning products to change the way people clean their guns. Currently, other Bore-Sticks calibers, as well as Multi-Cal Bore-Whips, are in product development at their factory in Springfield, MA.

Springfield Armory Introduces New XD-E Pistol

Springfield Armory® is pleased to announce its all-new patent-pending hammer-fired, single-stack, 9mm compact pistol, the XDE.

The principle behind the new XDE –– the best elements of Springfield Armory’s world-renowned XD Series, condensed into a pistol that’s intuitive, comfortable and accurate.

The XDE sculpts unmatched Point-And-Shoot® ergonomics into a sleek frame just an inch wide, for hand and holster fit that is extremely conducive to everyday carry. The patent-pending hammer design grants the XDE a Low-Effort-Slide (L.E.S.) that requires 27% less racking effort when compared to leading semi-automatic pistols. Thus, resulting in fewer slipped pulls, sore fingers and missed shots. The exposed hammer clearly shows gun mode, and the single/double action trigger offers options for shooting style. The XDE packs 8 + 1 rounds of 9mm. With the Magazine X-Tension™ the capacity increases to 9 +1. Even the flat-base concealment magazine offers an extended base plate that allows a full grip. Three magazine configurations let you personalize capacity, comfort, and concealability.

The High-Hand™ beavertail and trigger guard design naturally lifts the shooters grip to a higher position for increased control and improved stability. GripZone® provides three texture zones to secure the shooters grip, minimizing slippage and twisting during recoil.

“When we listened to the challenges that gun buyers face, it was apparent that many people struggle with the operation of compact semi-automatic pistols,” observed Springfield Armory® Chief Executive Officer Dennis Reese. “We decided to design a compact, safe, and carry-friendly pistol that was much easier to use whether you are a new shooter or skilled gunner. Now, buyers won’t have to make compromises when choosing a self-defense handgun.”

For carry, the XDE delivers peace of mind. The first double-action shot requires an intentional, longer and deliberate trigger pull. After the first shot, the XDE reverts to single-action operation, giving the operator a much lighter, crisp trigger break. The result is improved accuracy, controlled follow-up shots, and most importantly, the confidence to hit a target, even at longer distances.

Supplementing the double-action operation is a combination manual safety and de-cocking lever. Fully ambidextrous, the de-cocking system allows the user to safely lower the hammer without pulling the trigger.

“We firmly believe that a carry gun should be one that users want to take to the range for practice, training, and fun,” stated World Champion shooter and Team Springfield Captain Rob Leatham. “Especially for a gun suited for self-defense and concealed carry, it’s important to make the gun as easy and pleasurable to shoot as possible. That’s exactly what we’ve done with the XDE –– I think shooters will agree, sometimes the hammer can be the most important tool in the tool box.”

The new XDE qualifies for the Gear Up: Magazine Madness promotion when purchased prior to June 30, 2017. Customers will receive free gear including four additional magazines, mag pouch and holster. The free gear valued at $180 can be redeemed online at http://www.springfieldpromo.com.

Ruger Introduces An Integrally Suppressed Barrel for the 10/22 Takedown

Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) proudly introduces the Silent-SR® ISB for the 10/22 Takedown® platform. The ISB, or Integrally Suppressed Barrel, is an exciting addition to the Ruger® Silent-SR family that delivers quiet and accurate performance in a compact and truly user-serviceable package.

Known for its unrelenting reliability, durability and accuracy, the 10/22 Takedown rifle is the ideal platform for an integral suppressor. The Silent-SR ISB quickly and easily assembles to any Ruger 10/22 Takedown or 22 Charger™ Takedown, and features an induction-hardened breech with cold hammer-forged barrel that provide easy takedown and accurate return-to-zero – the same elements that have made the 10/22 Takedown an instant classic worthy of its heritage.

Reducing sound pressure levels of .22 LR to an average of 113.2 dB with standard velocity ammunition, a 10/22 Takedown rifle equipped with the Silent-SR ISB is as quiet as a bolt-action rifle with a thread-on silencer. Its compact, 16.12″ barrel length makes the Silent-SR ISB easy to handle, and the relatively long barrel of the Silent-SR ISB (compared to other integral suppressors) means the bullet generates energy near that of a 16″ gun for consistent, accurate and effective performance on target. The pushed-cone baffle geometry has been stretched to utilize the volume under the barrel maximizing suppression of the gunshot without disturbing the travel of the bullet.

Disassembly for cleaning is as simple as separating the barrel from your firearm and loosening the Silent-SR ISB’s single assembly screw using the included 5/32″ hex key tool. Once loose, pull the screw to remove all six 17-4 stainless steel baffles, spacer and front cap free of the sleeve for cleaning. The sealed baffles keep the fouling away from the serialized sleeve, yet easily come apart even after thousands of rounds. Finished with Cerakote, the Silent-SR ISB is engineered and built for a lifetime of hard use without clogged ports, seized components or loss of suppression that often plague other integrally suppressed rimfire barrels.

Suppressed firearms help to preserve our hearing, make verbal communication on the range easier and make shooting more fun. Paired with the Ruger 10/22 Takedown, the Silent-SR ISB makes the perfect training, plinking and small-game hunting platform.
