Magpul On Glock 17 PMags

OK we screwed up.

After initial release of the Glock 17 PMag (GL9) a few days ago we started seeing random issues of failure to feed with the new magazine in other Glock models primarily the Glock 19 and 26. Of all the challenges of building a Glock magazine with single new composite, issues like drop free, impact strength and feed lip retention were foremost on our mind. The failure to feed came as a bit of a surprise to us and we immediately headed out to the range to investigate.

In short order found the problem. Without getting into technical details, some small, but critical geometry changes did not make it into the initial production molds. We should have caught this but no failures showed up on our factory guns during live fire testing and flaws in our internal processes of checks/balances did not flag the oversight as it should.

So as I said before, we screwed up and here is what we are going to do about it.

Molds are being updated with the correct geometry as we speak and a replacement magazine body with the correct geomentry should be available by May 4th 2015. These will be date coded 5/15 and later and will replace any magazine bodies in service of earlier manufacture. Just use your existing spring, follower, and floor plate with the new body.

-If you purchased your magazines direct from Magpul, Brownells or Midway, you do not need to do anything, replacement magazine bodies for the magazines (1 for 1) ordered will be shipped to you automatically.

-If your purchased your magazines from a gun store, replacements will be sent out to the store in question for you to pick up.

-If neither of the above works for you then Magpul customer service will handle the replacement directly.

In short, we are updating ALL of the affected magazines released as quick as we possibly can.

SureFire Adds SF Ryder 9 Ti Suppressor to Award-Winning SF Ryder™ Series

 

 

SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-performance illumination tools, WeaponLights, suppressors, and tactical products is building upon the success of its award-winning SF Ryder 22-A suppressor—awarded “Suppressor of the Year” by Guns & Ammo—by releasing a battle-ready version for 9mm pistols and rifles. The new SF Ryder 9-Ti—“Ti” standing for titanium—features an ultra-light titanium tube, front plate, and rear plate that help minimize the suppressor’s overall weight without any sacrifice in strength.

The 9mm SF Ryder 9 Ti—like the .22 suppressor upon which it is based—features pig-nose baffles that provide superior sound attenuation and reduced muzzle blast by precisely directing gasses from fired rounds. This ingenious baffle design—in this case built from durable, heat-treated stainless steel—also makes cleaning the suppressor a simple process. Built-in spacers help reduce carbon buildup between the baffles and the suppressor tube, and every baffle is indexed and individually numbered for foolproof disassembly and reassembly—made even easier by an included assembly/disassembly tool.

Along with use of high-grade titanium in its construction, the 9.5-ounce Ryder 9Ti reduces weight through a clever outer tube design that features rounded edges and fluting, which also makes it easier to get an accurate sight picture with the suppressor attached. The thread-on suppressor securely attaches via single-point cut threads available in either 1Ž2×28 or M13.5×1 thread sizes. Attaching the suppressor is simply a matter of screwing it on to a compatibly threaded 9mm barrel until hand tight.

Built to exacting standards and unrelenting quality like SureFire’s battle-proven Fast-Attach® SOCOM suppressors, the Ryder 9Ti is designed for recreational shooting and tactical applications. Its titanium and stainless steel construction, precision threading, and a tough, attractive Cerakote™ finish available in three colors—black, dark earth, and wolf gray—make it ideal for most any application. MSRP is $799, and the suppressor is available for purchase through authorized SureFire suppressor dealers.

Texas House Takes Up ‘Open Carry’ On Friday

Media partner Texas Tribune reports a bill to allow Concealed Handgun License holders to openly carry their handguns is up for a vote in the Texas House on Friday. That’s after one of the bill’s opponents halted debate on Tuesday.

Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, D-San Antonio, raised a point of order and said testimony from three different witnesses from committee hearings were incorrect. The website says the bill was sent back to the House Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee, which immediately voted it out again after fixing the mistake.

The Tribune says once the open carry bill comes up for a vote, it should pass easily.

Eyes are also on the progress of a bill to repeal the DREAM act. That program offers in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants.

Top GOP Senator Introduces Bill to Ban ALL Federal Gun Control

The Conservative Tribune has frequently written about individual states passing bills to nullify federal gun control laws.

Now enter GOP Sen. Mike Lee, who aspires to once and for all transcend the state boundaries and implement a nationwide ban on all future federal gun control legislation.

Lee proposes doing so via an amendment that, if passed, would make it so that any future gun-control legislation would need the support of “two-thirds of senators” to become law. The amendment would also ban all future regulations imposed by Obama’s crony Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The senator is not alone in his mission. GOP Senators David Ritter and Inhofe introduced their own amendment that would prohibit the ATF from “attempting to ban bullets that are primarily used by hunters and sportsmen.”

And GOP Senators Lamar Alexander and Steven Daines introduced an amendment that would “protect antique guns that have ivory handles.”

All this comes only weeks after the ATF tried but ultimately failed to ban 5.56 mm M855 rounds, which are used with the extraordinarily popular AR-15 rifle. The ATF basically tried to claim that M855 bullets were “armor piercing,” when in fact they are not.

Furthermore, the folks over at Gun Owners of America expect even more amendments to pop up in the coming few weeks (H/T Breitbart).

Why? Because Americans are growing sick and tired of the nanny-state government trying to infringe on their Second American rights.

But rather than just mull about it in private, Americans are now fighting back by contacting their senators and urging them to launch pro-gun amendments.

If you care about your Second Amendment rights, you should do the same!

Please share this post on Facebook if you steadfastly support our GOP Senators in their bid to once and for all undo Barack H. Obama’s attempts to usurp the Second Amendment!
