NRA Victory in Washington

NRA Victory in Washington

It’s rare that gun owners have something to celebrate in the Emerald City. But on Monday, the Washington Court of Appeals ruled in favor of an NRA suit on behalf of Seattle gun owners.
Washington State law preempts localities from infringing on citizens’ gun rights: “The state of Washington hereby fully occupies and preempts the entire field of firearms regulation within the boundaries of the state.” Despite Washington’s statewide protection of gun owners, Seattle sought to disarm its residents by forcing them to render their firearms inaccessible, even inside their own homes.
The NRA, along with SAF and two individuals, challenged this ordinance. Although the trial court dismissed the case, a unanimous panel of the Washington Court of Appeals disagreed and reversed. The case against Seattle’s gun control can now proceed.
“The case against Seattle is strong,” said Michael Jean, NRA-ILA Director of Litigation. “Washington prohibits local gun control regulation, and this decision vindicates our fight against Seattle’s blatant violation of state law. We’re determined to litigate this case to its rightful conclusion.”

These slim 9X19 pistol models feature a micro-optic-ready factory-milled slide and a slim rail.

The G43X and G48 were introduced in July 2019 and feature a compact, Slimline frame with a 10-round magazine capacity.  The optic-ready Slimline models are now available with an MOS cutout and slim GLOCK mounting rail system. With a non-standard MOS footprint, the Slimline MOS models require specific mico-reflex optics such as the Shield RMSc.

With improved accuracy, quicker target acquisition and versatility, MOS pistols have become increasingly more popular for home and self-defense and are an ideal options for confined space operations.

A non-standard accessory rail allows for a light to be attached with close alignment to the firearm’s bore with positioning in front of the trigger guard which allows the operator to maintain a two-handed grip.

Both new models incorporate Gen5 Technologies such as the nDLC finish for extreme durability, a reversible magazine catch, and the match-grade, GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) for increased accuracy.

Colt Now Shipping AR-15s to Consumers again 

Colt Now Shipping AR-15s to Consumers again 

Colt first began marketing the semi-auto AR-15 Sporter to consumers in 1963 and it has continued to be a popular model for the company. After a brief break to fill military orders, they have resumed the practice. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)

Just nine months after the historic AR-15 maker signaled a curb in selling the rifle through consumer channels, Colt says they are now back on the market.

Last September, the Connecticut-based firearms maker began a hiatus in their sales of rifles to the public while continuing to produce such long arms to fulfill outstanding military and law enforcement contracts– a move they said at the time was only temporary. A market decision and not politics, despite what anti-gun advocates and avowed “we’re coming for your guns” Democratic Presidental candidates heralded as a win in their quest for gun control.

At this year’s SHOT Show in January, Colt told Guns.com that AR-15 production for the consumer market was going to resume once the company’s current rifle production line gets some breathing room on their full plate of military contracts. It seems that time has come.

Now, as first reported by American Rifleman  last week, new Colt AR-15s are shipping to dealers nationwide with Mark O’Keefe writing that over 2,000 Colt LE6920s recently left the factory, bound for eager consumers.

With record interest in gun purchases of AR-15 style rifles, especially from first-time buyers, you can bet those numbers are going to increase.

Bond Arms brought Boberg Arms-Change weapon name from Boberg Arms XR9-S to Bond Arms Bullpup

Bond Arms brought Boberg Arms-Change weapon name from Boberg Arms XR9-S to Bond Arms BullpupBond Arms is taking a big step in a new direction by offering a sub-compact semi-automatic concealed-carry pistol dubbed the Bond Bullpup. Based on the Boberg Arms XR9-S, the Bullpup provides a variety of uncommon features designed to keep the pistol small and lightweight while reducing felt recoil. This 9 mm Luger +P pistol is just 5.1″ long, 4.2″ tall and 0.96″ wide. It weighs just 17.5 ozs. with a seven-round magazine. The rear-feeding magazine rests directly below the rotating barrel’s chamber allowing for a longer barrel without the need for a longer slide.

The 7075-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum frame features a round trigger guard and hardwood grips. bondarms.comBond Arms brought Boberg Arms-Change weapon name from Boberg Arms XR9-S to Bond Arms BullpupBond Arms brought Boberg Arms-Change weapon name from Boberg Arms XR9-S to Bond Arms BullpupBond Arms brought Boberg Arms-Change weapon name from Boberg Arms XR9-S to Bond Arms Bullpup

A modern work of art in its own right, the slide is outfitted with features previously found only on custom handguns. It is ported and optic ready, with LPA sights as well as front and rear serrations.  Walther’s superior accuracy is quickly realized when shooting thanks to the 5” barrel with polygonal rifling and stepped chamber.

The interchangeable backstraps allow you to tune your grip, giving you a perfect, straight-back trigger pull. This adjustability also provides access to the magazine and slide releases without shifting your hand.

Comparing the Glock 43x to the Glock 43: In-Depth Analysis-MTR has holsters for them

Comparing the Glock 43x to the Glock 43: In-Depth Analysis-MTR has holsters for them

MTR Custom Leather scored big time and got our hands on the all new Glock 43x and Glock 48 before they were released, which gave us the ability to get our hands on them and have holsters ready well before launch! We are excited to have a full lineup of holsters available for all of the SlimLine Glocks including the 43x:

A-2 Dual Carry

A-3A Tuckable Adversary

B-1A Slimline Deluxe Pancake Belt Slide

A-8 Paddle Holster

(Every holster from shoulder rigs, ankles rigs IWB, OWB can be made for the Glock 43X)

Comparing the Glock 43x to the Glock 43: In-Depth Analysis-MTR has holsters for them

SLIDE:

The Glock 43x not only features front cocking serrations but also features an nPVD finish vs the standard Gen5 nDLC finish found on the Glock 43. The verdict is out as to how the nPVD will stand up vs. the nDLC but hey, at least it looks nice…

HERE IS A RUNDOWN OF SOME OF THE MOST OBVIOUS CHANGES…

HEIGHT WITH MAGAZINE:

The Glock 43x has a height of 5.04″ vs the Glock 43 that features a height of 4.25″.
The change gives the shooter more grip length which allows for a more full grip and better control of the pistol.Comparing the Glock 43x to the Glock 43: In-Depth Analysis-MTR has holsters for them

MAGAZINE CAPACITY:

The extended height allows another advantage over the Glock 43 which is magazine capacity. The Glock 43 comes with a flush 6 round magazine while the 43x holds 4 additional rounds bringing you up to 10 rounds with a flush magazine. When it comes to magazine capacity bigger is almost always better and the 43x is certainly delivering with the additional 4 rounds.

Many customers are expecting that Glock will be releasing an extended or higher capacity magazine in the future, but there is nothing official from Glock at this time.

The pistol features the company’s patent-pending Low-Profile Optics Mounting System™ that enables the platform to accept more than ten commercially-available miniature red dot (MRD) optics that co-witness with the suppressor-height night sights and remain adaptable to future optics releases with no requirement of direct milling of the slide. The slide cap, for use when not shooting with an optic, has raised sight wings that protect iron sight alignment if the pistol is dropped or jostled, and provides a textured ramp for racking the slide against a belt loop, pant pocket or boot. An FN-signature 4.5-inch, cold hammer-forged, stainless-steel barrel with target crown, ½” x 28 threads that accept the bulk of 9mm suppressors available and thread cap with integrated O-ring to prevent loosening during use complete the top end. Lastly, the 24-round magazines, nearly identical in length to the pistol’s slide, maximize ammunition capacity without impacting carry convenience.

The improved controls aid in manipulation, the new improved texturing on the two included backstraps provides better recoil management and a new, flatter faced trigger allows for more controllable trigger press and cleaner break.
