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

MKS Supply Announces New Inland T30 Sniper Carbine w M82 Vintage Sniper Scope

For Immediate Release



New T30 Carbine with M82 Vintage Sniper Scope


A rare WWII, Korea, and early Vietnam Era Carbine is back for today’s shooters


MKS Supply, LLC, Dayton OH, December, 2016-From Inland Manufacturing, the maker of truly “authentic” M1 Carbines, comes Inland’s T30, reviving and reintroducing the historically significant predecessor to the M3 sniper version of the M1 Carbine of WWII, Korea and Vietnam fame.

This new Inland T30 Carbine is very similar to the T3 Carbine of WWII. It comes fitted with a period-correct Redfield-style scope base welded to the receiver like the original. The purchaser can have it with or without the 2.5-power M82 sniper scope. The M82 scope is manufactured by Hilux and is a 7/8-inch diameter telescopic sight with post/horizontal hair reticle that replicates the rugged Lyman Alaskan scope adopted by the military during WWII.

The new production Hilux M82 sniper scope, while period correct on the exterior features, has greatly improved optics for better light transmission and exceptional clarity, along with greater windage and elevation capabilities than the original.

Each Inland T30 Carbine comes with a period-correct clamp on a conical flash hider, oiler, magazine and sling. One other fact: The original M1 Carbine held 3-6 MOA accuracy at 100 yards; the new Inland version is capable of 1-2 MOA accuracy!


  • Weight: 5.3 pounds without scope, 6.0 pounds with scope
  • Barrel length: 18 inches
  • Caliber: .30 Carbine
  • Capacity: 15 as sold (one magazine)
  • Stock: Walnut; low wood design
  • Scope: M82 sniper scope – 2 .5 power by Hilux with 7/8-inch tube
  • MSRP: $1,695 with Hi-Lux M82 scope and Redfield style rings
  • MSRP: $1,279 without scope-without rings
  • NOTE: The Inland T30 will also take 1-inch and 30mm Redfield rings.


Original T3 Carbine Background (a bit more for fun)
The T3 Carbine originated during WWII (1944) and it was used in Korea and Vietnam. The T3 was also fitted with the M3 infrared night vision scope. This early night-fighting unit was state of the art at the time (WWII and Korea) but by any standard was large and heavy. That is why the base was permanently attached on the T3 receiver; mere screws would not hold it! Its nighttime range was 140 yards (though often it was far less).


Many folks can remember seeing these now-rare, highly-collectible infrared systems for sale in outdoor magazines of the late 1950s (don’t you wish you had bought one then – OK, if you were even alive back then). When the T3 Carbine was used with the vintage M82G2 optical sniper scope, it extended the “effective range” out to 800 yards (well, according to the military, anyway).
