Steyr Arms Introduces the AUG A3 M1 Long Rail #NRAAM Booth 3258



BESSEMER, Ala. (April 12, 2017) — In response to an overwhelming number of requests for a longer top rail for its legendary AUG A3 M1 bullpup platform, Steyr Arms announced today that it is now in full production of a Long Rail version of the rifle. Offering 25 numbered slots, the new Long Rail version provides a significant increase in surface area to use both optics and back-up iron sights.


The top rail on this new Long Rail version of the AUG A3 M1 rifle boasts two more slots than the original flat-top AUG A3 SA but is still the same overall rail height over the stock comb, providing optimal cheekweld with a wide variety of optics and iron sights. The Long Rail extends a full 5.5 inches back from the receiver, placing its rearmost edge almost in line with the front of the ejection port for better placement of a rear iron sight.


The Long Rail also features lightening cuts along both sides and milled areas underneath to greatly reduce weight. Overall weight of the AUG A3 M1 Long-Rail is 7.8 pounds, and it is available in Black, Mud, OD Green or White for either the standard AUG stock or the NATO-style stocks, which accept STANAG magazines.


The AUG A3 M1 Long Rail includes one translucent polymer 30-round magazine and an owner’s manual. The suggested retail of the AUG A3 M1 Long Rail version is $2,099.The rail is available separately for $145.

New .22 Rimfire Suppressor from Inland Firearms! See it at #NRAAM

Low-cost and high-efficiency–a double win!

 Inland Suppressor


MKS Supply, Inc., Dayton, OH, April 2017 Inland Firearms, makers of the incredibly popular Inland series of M1Carbines, is now producing a classic-looking sound suppressor for .22 rimfire firearms that will be marketed exclusively through MKS Supply and will be on display at the NRA Convention booth 4632.

Materials: The all-new PM-22 suppressor is constructed of 6000 series aluminum and weighs a feathery 3.5 ounces, making it one of the lightest such units on the market. The black anodized, one-inch-diameter tube is 5.5 inches long. For durability, the ½ x 28 threaded base adapter is stainless steel with a tough black oxide finish.

Interior sound baffles: The PM-22 uses a unique monolithic, X-design polymer baffle system core that can be used either “wet” or dry. Full disassembly can be completed without tools, and cleaning is simple using hot water and Inland’s dB Suppressor Foam.

Rimfire ammunition creates lower gas pressure, heat and flame than does centerfire ammunition. Inland’s patent pending polymer baffle system has been tested to 10,000 rounds (so far) without needing replacement. If baffle replacement does become necessary, the PM-22 has a lifetime warranty (NFA replacement and shipping rules apply).


Facts concerning this suppressor: Polymer baffles have less inherent harmonic metallic resonance than metal and they are produced using injection molding rather than with much more costly metal machining. This keeps the price lower.


Sound: The Inland suppressor keeps the decibel level in the low to mid-80s using subsonic ammunition and when shot dry. When combined with Inland’s patent pending sound suppressing dB Foam, the sound is reduced another 3-5 decibels (a 4-ounce can of dB Foam is included with each suppressor). To say it another way, with subsonic ammunition, only the functioning of the pistol’s action is audible from more than a few yards away.




  • Weight: 3.5 ounces
  • Length: 5.5 inches
  • Diameter: 1.0 inch
  • Exterior tube: Black anodized 6000 series aluminum with stainless steel black oxide barrel adapter
  • Baffles: Monolithic I-Core polymer monolithic X design
  • Lifetime warranty
  • MSRP: $189.95

It’s time for NRA’s Annual Meeting in Atlanta! #NRAAM #NRAAM2017

It’s that time again, the NRA’s 2017 Annual Meeting is just a few weeks away. This is one of the main events for the firearms community every year and if you are just a regular member of the gun buying public, it is one of the most accessible. Due to corporate assignments and rebuilding the AR15.Guru site, we weren’t able to post too much from The SHOT Show this year. We’ll do our best to try and make up for it at the NRAAM.

If you haven’t booked your hotel yet, you definitely want to get on it as many are already sold out. We’ve included a link to the attendee information for the NRAAM in Atlanta here:

NRA Attendee Information

One quick tip, the Georgia World Congress Center didn’t come up in a lot of the hotel and restaurant apps we tried, so we recommend you try putting in the Georgia Dome. It is pretty much catty-corner to the GWCC and came up in every app or hotel search engine we tried. Not to mention it is much easier to type in.

Last year we did a 30 second video clip on tips and tricks for the show. It was rather popular so we may add more video this year. Let us know what you think. We might try longer streaming sessions via Periscope. So stay tuned…..

G2 Debuts Affordable High Performance 38 Spl +P & 9mm +P Rounds

For immediate release



NEW .38 Special +P and 9mm +P Rounds Supply Affordable Fight Stopping Power


G2 Research debuts new lower cost high-performance rounds

 Winder, GA, December, 2016, G2 Research NEW Telos .38 Special +P and 9mm +P self-defense rounds pack real stopping power at an affordable price.
Both .38 Special and 9mm Parabellum rounds have been underrated over the last decade when compared with other newer handgun rounds. “That will change with these new G2 Research +P Telos rounds. These new rounds are specifically designed and loaded to stop fights–quickly!”–Chris Nix, VP Sales & Marketing.

There is good news:

The Telos bullet is CNC manufactured using a pure copper slug. It has a huge internally segmented hollow-point. Once the hollow point fills with fluid it literally flies apart in  controlled-fragmentation releasing six-copper petals.

These fragments spread inside the target for several inches causing pain, increasing blood loss thus lowering blood pressure. The base of the bullet continues to travel forward for additional penetration (10+-inches). The Telos bullet is designed to stay inside the target  releasing all of its energy, not into an innocent bystander on the other side of the target.



  • Caliber: .38 Special +P
  • Bullet weight: 105 grains
  • Velocity: 1,170 fps
  • MSRP: $28.99-twenty rounds
  • Caliber: 9mm +P
  • Bullet weight: 92 grains
  • Velocity: 1,120 fps
  • MSRP: $27.99-twenty rounds
