    SHOT 2017: Maxim-9 Integrally Suppressed Pistol
    InRangeTV



    Published on Jan 16, 2017

    Well, against all expectations, we found something really cool and exciting at SHOT Show 2017 Range Day! It's SilencerCo's "Maxim-9", an integrally suppressed new pistol design. It was built from the ground up to be suppressed, using a fixed barrel and delayed blowback system (they won't let us see the exact delaying mechanism, although we suspect it is roller-delayed).

    The Maxim-9 is quiet (hearing safe with all +P and +P+ loads in the long version; hearing safe with subsonic loads in the short version), fast-shooting, and generally really excellent. We can see this being a great piece for home defense, competition, and police carry - almost anything, really. We are pretty excited to get our hands on a couple production models to tinker with!

    Interesting about the Galil. The IDF soldiers I knew hated it and far preferred the AK47 or the M16 [early 1980's]. The major plus was a bottle opener. I am sure the weapon has been improved over the years. The M4 wasn't out there as a issue weapon when I was there. Most videos I have seen the last few years have shown the IDF carry M16 variants, although a video I found on utube from 2009 stated the IDF is moving to the domestic Tavor, I also found a tour of the factory from 2013. I have never seen a Tavor in action. The factory tour/range video is ok to know what they are producing, but there is some propaganda and hyper promotion toward Israeli weapons. Less BS and more actual facts would have improved the video.

    SHOT 2017: S333 Volleyfire
    InRangeTV



    Published on Jan 17, 2017
    http://www.patreon.com/InRangeTV

    The S333 Volleyfire from Standard Manufacturing harkens back to the grand ole days of the Gold Rush in which intrepid men would take their life in their hands attempting to defend themselves with the best they had at the time, the pepperbox pistol. While the pepper box pistol was a significant improvement over a knife, and it was the precursor of what was to come - the revolver - it wasn't really all that great.

    The S333 Volleyfire brings back the idea of the pepper box in a modern 25 ACP guise, and while it's mechanically and legally interesting, we're left with the question of - why?

    Published on Jan 17, 2017
    Checking out and shooting Q's Erector suppressor in a short and long configuration at SHOT Show 2017's Range Day. The Erector is a SUPER lightweight can where each of 10 baffles is removable. The user can configure it to any length they desire! With all 10 baffles, it's under 2.5 ounces. Crazy stuff.

    SHOT 2017: Mossberg Shockwave - No Commentary Needed
    InRangeTV



    Published on Jan 17, 2017
    http://www.patreon.com/InRangeTV

    The Shockwave is a new product from Mossberg this year which wiggles into an interesting legal loophole of being a "firearm" but not a "shotgun", allowing it to have a 14 inch barrel but not be NFA regulated. It has a birds head grip, and is being marketed by Mossberg as a home defense weapon. Hmm...

    SHOT 2017: Polycase Ammo
    InRangeTV



    Published on Jan 18, 2017
    http://www.patreon.com/InRangeTV

    This polymer & copper blended projectile supposedly is simultaneously frangible yet better at barrier penetration than traditional hollow points. Additionally, it does not require expansion for enhanced terminal ballistics due to the supposed "churn" induced by the propeller like fluting gyrating through a soft target.

    These are high claims, and we can't test them here but we wanted to hear the information and hopefully acquire some samples for future testing. Stay tuned!

    Once again this is a compilation video of my 2nd day at Shot Show 2017. This is just a sneak peek.

    This one only has a handful of companies featured because I only had a few hours to walk the show. Had to take my son to get his shots that day. But I did get very in depth interviews. The full length booth interview videos will be posted later.

    SHOT 2017: Why is Colt's M16A1 Reissue $2500?
    InRangeTV



    Published on Jan 18, 2017
    http://www.patreon.com/InRangeTV

    Colt is manufacturing a new edition of their classic SP1/M16A1 rifle, getting in on the growing popularity of retro AR rifles. It looks like a great rifle, done well and done correctly. However, their MSRP was recently announced as $2500 - more than double the cost of the same type of rifle available from Troy.

    Our question for Colt here at SHOT was, what justifies the price tag?

    Freedom Munitions ammo - does it work well?
    Military Arms Channel



    Published on Jan 29, 2017
    I've had a number of comments by folks who have said Freedom Munitions is bad ammo or that it was the cause of the malfunctions I had with the Remington RP9. I've never had problems with Freedom Munitions ammo, so I demonstrate with 9 different firearms if the same 124gr Freedom Munitions used in my RP9 video works or if it causes malfunctions in other guns.

    Reloading Showcase: Finnish D166 7.62x53R

    Published on Jan 30, 2017


    In this video Eric goes over the load that we worked up to mimic the original D166 200gr military loading developed by the Finns for the M39 Service Rifle. The D166 was a special load originally intended for machine gun use but was found to have superb long range accuracy in the M39s as well. Use the data shown here at your own risk and with any reloading project always start low and work up looking for pressure signs along the way. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

    The Pistol Grip Only Shotgun - The Perfect Home Defense Tool?

    Published on Feb 3, 2017
    Mossberg revealed their new "Shockwave" PGO shotgun at SHOT Show 2017 and Ian questioned their home defense claims in this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmC3N...

    We received a lot of comments that he was a bit harsh with his questions along with the recurring claim that the PGO shotgun is an excellent home defense weapon.

    In this video we tested a PGO, a standard stocked shotgun and a SxS hammered coach gun on the clock via a few different scenarios to attempt to determine the best answer.

    New AR15 style rifles & new suppressor by Arsenal Firearms : SHOT show 2017
    mixflip



    Published on Feb 3, 2017
    For some reason this new AR/AK hybrid by Arsenal Firearms really impressed me.

    Why? Because it has all the ergonomics and modularity of an AR15 but the heart and power of the AK47. Plus it has a left side charging handle!!!!

    Their new suppressor was interesting as well with its forward facing vents to reduce/eliminate gas face and BCG velocity.

    I definitely want to get my hands on these rifles for testing.

    Watch that muzzle!
    By the way, this old airsoft gun has been around for about 10 years, and it's been at least that long since we've had any "ammo" for it. If you think it fired a pellet when I snapped the trigger, sorry, you're just seeing things. I think a bug flew by, actually. :-) I don't think I've even see the magazine for it in years.

    This is why you don't draw on a drawn gun!
    Active Self Protection



    Published on Apr 23, 2015
    To paraphrase the late, great Col. Jeff Cooper, owning a gun doesn’t make you a gunfighter anymore than owning a guitar makes you a musician. You must know how to use it and here, most importantly, WHEN to use it. Do you have the skills to get to your gun in a gunfight?

    There are several lessons for firearms carriers here:

    1. You must have the empty-handed skills to use the Five Ds in a close-in gunfight BEFORE you try to draw your firearm. Your firearm is a powerful force multiplier but against a drawn gun and with the attention on you, it is not a useful tool. Drawing on a drawn gun with attention on you is a dying man’s game, so make sure to pick the time to draw your gun when you have opportunity to get ahead in initiative and use your firearm effectively.

    2. Marksmanship absolutely matters! The second officer had a very small center of mass of the mugger to shoot at, as the rest was covered by an innocent. Taking a headshot on a moving target under duress with rounds coming back at you is not easy by any means, so OWNING the marksmanship portion of the equation without question is an important skill. You don’t want to question whether you can hit a small target!

    3. I have said it before and will say it again…spiritual fitness is important. The officer in the first clip didn’t know that it was going to be his last day on earth, and the officer in the second clip was right there as well but thankfully came out on top. Knowing what you fight for is important, but making peace with God before you meet Him is important as well. Don’t put that off.

    4. The second officer waited for his opportunity, and that was awesome. He used a submissive posture of hands up, palms out, fingers spread to show submission to the attacker, right up until the attacker wasn’t paying attention anymore. Then, the fight was ON! That is what we call a counter-ambush, and it can be a very effective tactic.

    5. Your draw needs to be practiced, smooth, fast, and without a hitch. The first officer took at least 2 if not 3 tries to get the gun out of the holster, likely because he wasn’t absolutely proficient at releasing his retention mechanism. (I can’t tell which retention holster he has on, so I will refrain from speculating) Practice your draw until you can’t get it wrong, ASPers.

    Attitude. Skills. Plan.

    We're doing one more match with the Vietnam era AR15s, but with a twist:

    Ian will have the "best of breed" of the time, a Gau5 carbine & Colt 4x20 scope. Karl will have a bone stock Colt SP1 with irons.

    Stage 1 - Longish range mini-IPSC targets engaged through a fence prop across a natural canyon.

    .410 bore AR15, MP40 & double barrel coach shotgun by Americn Tactical
    mixflip



    Published on Feb 9, 2017
    An AR15 that shoots the .410 bore shotgun round is interesting because it opens up a lot of possibilities for ammo without needing to change barrels or bolts. Just buy slugs, or shot, or flechettes, or dragons breath etc etc. Plus it uses a standard mil spec lower!!!

    Then there is the legendary WWII German sub machine gun called the MP40. Now you can have a modern version of that gun!

    And many of you know I love double barrel shotguns! AT has one that self cocks the hammers when you open the breech. That is feature is just plain cool.

    HMG Q&A Session 1: StG44 reproduction & more!
    InRangeTV



    Published on Feb 10, 2017
    We're launching a recurring Skype series with Mac of HMG Gunworks to provide status updates about their repro StG44 effort as well as to deep dive into the engineering, history and mechanics involved.

    Basic timestamps of questions addressed in this session 1 are below, but there's a lot of interesting meat and conversation between these questions so it's not recommended to skip around:

    2:09:
    Andrew C
    1) What is the current estimated ship date?
    2) What is the most likely reason that date will be missed?
    3) What are you not already doing that could complete the STG-N before the heat death of the universe?
    4) Why are you not doing those things?
    5) Did the CA customers receive rifles before the Jan 1 ban?

    7:51
    Christopher M
    I wonder if there were good drawings of the Stg44 or did they have to work off of samples to set up the original designs?

    Colburn F
    I'm also interested in how old firearms blue prints and part drawings are attained. Do you have to go to German museums or archives? Or do you have to buy all the parts and reverse engineer?

    23:13
    Arkasha N
    Having studied the historical StG44 and engineered a near-clone, has your opinion of the StG44 changed over time? If so, how?

    36:50
    Jay Richner
    -What was the biggest issue in the development? - Did they use 3d printers in the development phase or they use "real" metal parts directly? - Was it reverse engineered or did they have original blueprints?

    44:50
    Laurens W
    Would it pass the mud test?

    48:08
    Why are we doing this series and what’s important about understanding the actual challenge of a project like this? How hard is it to reverse engineer lost technology and designs?

    49:46

    HMG Q&A Session 2: StG44 Magazines & more!
    InRangeTV



    Published on Feb 17, 2017
    https://www.hmgunworks.com/

    In session 2 of our HMG Q&A with Mac we delve into magazines as a primary topic, but touch on other bits as well.

    Session 1 is here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQxwV...

    Basic timestamps of questions addressed in this 2nd session are below, but there's a lot of interesting meat and conversation between these questions so it's not recommended to skip around:

    :30
    Carl (viewer)
    I'm very interested in the magazines that mimic the STG-44 magazine appearence. With they be made in all calibers including 7.62x39mm? Will all guns come standard with replica magazines?

    3:30
    Why are the mags polymer?

    4:50
    Eric B
    It is my understanding that the HMG STANAG magazine is designed to work with all four calibers. Clearly the 5.56mm and 300 Blackout should be pretty interchangeable. However, I would expect feed angles and the stacking of the rounds in the magazine to be different in 8mm Kurz and especially 7.62x39mm. What engineering went into assuring proper feeding with all four calibers?

    6:00
    What are the magazine capacities?

    11:15
    Clarification about seams on polymer mags - fused halves or seams during the over moulding process?

    12:37
    Difference between magazine design and manufacture in 1943 vs 2017?

    21:20
    StG44 magazine same one used in the MkB42? Were original mags good in the first place?

    23:10
    Why were the original mags so long?

    26:45
    Will HMG magazines fit in the STG44 mag pouches?

    28:12
    Ed G
    Availability of a reverse side magazine release? (So the button would actually be located in approximately the same position as the original and could be easily reached by the thumb on the left hand coming up rather than needing to reach around the gun as a right handed shooter)

    31:00
    Can you use a 3rd party ambi-mag catch in the HMG StG44?

    33:00
    The HMG magazines will fit in other guns.

    35:06
    Thomas T
    Are they going to add more detail to the stampings in the future? The ones on the area around the trigger group are just straight lines and that was the only thing that bothers me. It's purely aesthetic I know, but it sort of takes the immersion out of it.

    44:48
    Gregory S
    on the topic of recreated firearms. What firearm of which there are no functional examples in existence would you like to see remade to original specs or close to?

    Brake, Comp, Silencer, or Flash Hider? +BONUS BLOOPER
    John Lovell



    Published on Feb 11, 2017
    Choosing the right muzzle device - flash hider, muzzle brake, compensator, or silencer with tactics and firearms instructor John Lovell.

    During a Night Vision professional course by Telluric Group hosted at Tactical Response, we discussed which muzzle device is most advantageous for operating during hours of limited visibility. Some students had flash hiders, others had compensators or brakes, while other students rocked silencers (or suppressors or cans depending on which term you like). While there are advantages and disadvantages to each respective device, these devices are certainly not created equal in a low light or no light context.

    Get a discount off Gemtech silencers at Telluric Group. It's what I like and use.
