Silencer Shop Authority: SIG SRD762Ti-QD Review

A few months ago, I was cruising through a few of my favorite YouTube channels and noticed that Tim over at Military Arms Channel had brought in SIG’s new SRD762Ti series silencers for demonstration and testing. When I saw the numbers he posted for the cans, I was mightily impressed, but I probably should not have been.  After all, SIG’s… Read more »

Silencer Shop Authority: SIG SRD762Ti Review

When silencer veterans Kevin Brittingham (now with his new company, Q) and John Hollister joined on at SIG back in 2014, most of us with ties to the industry took notice. Previously the masterminds behind Advanced Armament’s rise to dominance, their enrollment with a company not at all known for its suppressors was both puzzling and very exciting. Clearly SIG… Read more »

Modern Rifleman’s Favorites of SHOT Show 2016

Last week, firearms manufacturers, dealers, and media headed to Las Vegas for the industry’s largest trade exhibition, SHOT Show. As is the case each year, SHOT’s 2016 episode brought several new product announcements and updates, a few of which particularly caught my attention.

The New York Daily News Embarrasses Itself, Others Take the Bait On Wednesday, the New York Daily News dropped with this cover story: Throughout the rest of the day, other “journalists” latched on to the theme and posted similar stories in popular news outlets lambasting the NRA for supposedly arming terrorists. Apparently, the NRA’s (and the ACLU’s) resistance to classifying… Read more »

Proof Marks, Date Codes, and German Firearms

Collectors who spend enough time around European firearms will often notice that the guns are littered with a variety of odd markings, letters, and other stamps that seem like some sort of secret code language from another world. Seemingly every European pistol or rifle has these markings, but rarely do product manuals or any other official literature cover what they… Read more »

Modern Rifleman’s Favorites of SHOT Show 2015

While I may have already proclaimed 2015 the “year of the suppressor“, SHOT Show 2015 was loaded with plenty of other news-worthy developments and releases that should not be ignored. While I was once again unable to attend the show, I have endeavored to keep tabs on all the major firearms releases from last week’s show. After sorting through all… Read more »

2015: The Year of the Suppressor

      1 Comment on 2015: The Year of the Suppressor

Over the past few months, I have written several articles on suppressors and NFA topics in general.  For those of you who live in states where suppressor ownership is not an option, I apologize. There simply is not another segment of the firearms market that is moving as quickly as the suppressor industry. As of publication, six states (Arizona, Kansas,… Read more »

SIG Suppressors Poised to Grab Attention at SHOT Show 2015

If you’re a suppressor enthusiast like I have recently become, you probably have been following Mike Pappas’ (formerly of SilencerCo) reentry into the suppressor marketplace with Dead Air Armament. This enthusiasm seems to be well placed, as an early look courtesy of Silencer Shop indicates that Dead Air’s new Sandman suppressors are likely to be excellent performers. However since we… Read more »

Legal Battle Still Rages Between SIG Sauer and ATF

SIG Sauer’s forthcoming MPX was one of the biggest hits at SHOT Show last January. Set to be released in several different configurations, the pistol caliber carbine (or SMG for LE/Military) looks poised to capture the upper end of this niche market. Unfortunately, the rifle’s release has been met with stiff resistance from the ATF. One version of the MPX… Read more »
