  • Sig P320 Caliber X-Change Kits Get Official, And More Kryptec Is On The Way

    First off, a word about our sources. All this information was culled from organic, free-range, shade-grown, fair trade websites that are out there for everyone to peruse. We not telling you anything new, we're just reporting on what Lipsey's has posted.

    Now, on to the guns!

    * Not certain on this, but at that price, they might include a spring and buffer as well.

    With the P250 .22LR out there, a .22LR P250 conversion kit was sort of a given, and it's nice to see a bunch of P320 CalEx kits also coming our way soon.

    Sig is adding even more Kryptec guns, this time in a 12" barreled pistol version. We haven't seen pics of it yet, but it'd be interesting to see what color of PSB it ships with...

    What's NOT On The List

    - Silencers.
    Sig's been talking about them and showing them off online, but we haven't seen any new models released as of yet.

    - The 716G2 in other colors besides black.
    Again, there's pictures of them out there in the wild, just no SKU's right now.

    - A civilian version of the military's Modular Pistol.
    We've not heard of any plans to release that gun to the civilian market, but given the history of similar military projects (coughcoughMk23coughcough), it wouldn't surprise us one bit to see the Modular Pistol head our way sometime soon.

    - Kryptec.
    How many new camo guns does Sig Sauer have up their collective sleeve? We'll soon find out, and when we do, we'll post it here.

  • New Rifles From Sig Sauer

    We've talked about the P320's and the other pistols that Sig is coming out with next year, now it's time to talk long guns, including the much-anticipated MCX line.

    KRYPTEC! Did NOT see that coming! Looks like Sig is acknowledging that people use AR's to hunt with this new 716, and that is a very good thing indeed.

    You had to figure that Sig would go .300Blk with their AR's, as that's a fairly easy thing to change, and with Kevin Brittingham on-board, it makes even more sense.

    Follow up question: How long before Kryptec 516G2's chambered in .300Blk show up? Or maybe a Kryptec M400 Predator model for all you coyote hunters out there?

    Tomorrow we'll be talking about the new pistol braces and Caliber Exchange Kits coming out soon from Sig and what may still be coming from Sig later this year.

  • More New Sig Sauer Pistols for 2015

    Soon to be in stock

    Yesterday, we talked about the P320's, and today we're looking at the other new Sig pistols that we've uncovered via our online sources.

    Be sure to click on the SKU's for your favorite guns and sign up for product alert emails so you'll be the first to know when we get these in-stock.

    Coming up tomorrow: Sig's other pistols for 2015. Stay tuned!

    Also, below is a detailed comparison where we show the P320 vs P250 and highlight features of both.

    At the time of the video we were not aware of the P320 Compact. The P320 equivalent of the P250 Compact is the P320 Carry. It is strange that Sig would then release a model called the P320 Compact when it isn't the same dimensions as the P250 Compact. We will hopefully get our hands on more info relating to the naming scheme soon. We're being told that the P320 Compact will have the grip shell from the subcompact model with the 3.9" barrel / slide from the P320 Carry. In my humble opinion, it would be better to just sell the P320 Carry model and offer a P320 Compact conversion kit which would consist of a grip shell and subcompact 12rd magazine (plus an X-Grip adapter to allow the 15rd compact mag to fit in the subcompact grip shell with the pinky adapter to close the gap).

  • Sig Sauer On The Move

    Over the past few weeks, Sig Sauer's been hinting at some cool stuff coming our way very soon. First off, it's no secret that Sig has hired Kevin Brittingham, formerly of Advanced Armament Corporation. AAC is/was known for a) ridiculously cool guns and b) ridiculously cool silencers*/suppressors, so it makes sense that Sig is coming out with much the same things.

    And they are.

    The MCX takes the MPX to new levels, and our friends at The Firearm Blog got to shoot one earlier this year and were very impressed with how it shot. We'll have more on this gun later in the year, so stay tuned.

    Sig MCX

    And suppressors! Did we mention suppressors!? Take a look at what Sig posted on Instagram earlier this month:

    Sig Suppressors

    "SIG SAUER is bringing the best silencers ever produced to market. SIG hired the founder and lead engineer from #aac. The new #sigsilencers are the next generation."

    Cool.

    But what's suppressor without somewhere to put it? As we reported earlier, it looks like the Designated Marksman Rifle is going on a diet and turning itself into a lean, mean shooting machine.

    New Sig DMR

    Word on the street is that this gun will come it at around 9 pounds without an optic, and unless we miss our guess (and we're pretty good at guessing) that's a quick-detach suppressor mount on the front of that gun.

    As far as handguns go, look for more additions to the P320 line, along with this interesting critter designed to meet the Army's requirements for a modular pistol.

    Modular 320

    According to the Military Times, it has an ambidextrous thumb safety with a 1911-esque thumb shelf, as well as a slide release lever that is smaller, angled more forward than a stock 320, along with a loaded chamber indicator and a bunch of other tweaks.

    We'll have more updates on what else is coming out from Sig Sauer this year, so stay tuned.

    * Hiram Maxim, the guy who invented the darn things, called them "silencers" on the patent application. Look, I know and you know they don't actually "silence" the gun, but that was his name for it and he invented it, and let's just roll with that for now.

  • Tactical Reloads In Context

    There's been some chatter on the gun internet about how tactical reloads might be you killed in "the real world".

    First off, a brief primer on what a tactical reload is, and why might want to learn this skill. I'll let Steve Gilcreast from the Sig Sauer Academy do the heavy lifting in that department with this video.

    So a tactical reload is something you perform during a lull in the fight to top off your gun and prepare for what's next. Is that a useful skill to learn? Probably. Is that a necessary skill for all of us who are armed and don't wear a uniform and a badge to work?

    *thoughtful pause*

    First off, let's acknowledge the fact that we are not cops, and it is not our job to go out seeking bad guys, it's our job to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe from harm. If we do that by stopping a threat to our lives with our CCW gun, great. If we do that by not being around such people, even better. We are not there to look for trouble, we are there to survive the trouble until the authorities arrive and take over.

    Secondly, if (God forbid), we do run into trouble, it's because of something the bad guy did, not an intentional act on our part. At some point, the bad guy made a huge error in the victim selection process and is now (figuratively and possibly literally) fighting for his life. Unless it's an active shooter situation or there is a personal element to the encounter like a stalker or an abusive relationship, the goal of the bad guy is to get what he/she wants and then quickly move on to enjoying his/her ill-gotten booty.

    Combine those two things, and we see that a) the only pause in a gunfight that we "civilians" will probably ever see is after the threat has been eliminated or is running away and b) at that point, our job is over and the job of the cops begins, tactical reloads then become part of the after-action drill, and not something to be done as part of a continuing engagement. Useful, necessary and definitely NOT something that will get you "killed on the street", but not a #1 priority for training, either.

    Update: I forgot about this.

    "Private citizens reload in approximately 1/2 of one percent of shooting incidents (3/482). 
    If the defender fires any shots, most likely it will be 2 rounds." 

    Not exactly something that's a pressing need, then.

  • Coming Soon: A new rifle from Sig Sauer?

    Spotted on Pinterest this week, the 716 Lightweight DMR, a new version of the Designated Marksman Rifle that weighs in at under nine pounds (!!!!) with a Keymod rail that extends past the gas block and what looks like a Sig Sauer-branded quick detach suppressor. Until recently, Sig suppressors have all been thread-mount, so is this a portent that more QD cans are on their way from Sig?

    SIG Sauer Lightweight DMR


    That's a custom Remington MSR in .300 WinMag next to the SIG for comparison's sake.

  • The Seven Secrets Of Concealed Carry - Secret Number Seven

    The Seven Secrets Of Concealed Carry

    Only Draw Your Gun When Not Drawing It Would Be Worse.

    There's a healthy and robust debate in the firearms community right now over the role of the armed citizen in society, specifically when it comes to intervening in events where we are not the target of the bad guy. Do you get involved in a store robbery if you're not the one being robbed? Do you draw in response to an active shooter? What happens when your home is being robbed, but the robbers aren't threatening you with lethal force?

    To be honest, I don't have a "one size fits all" answer for each those questions, because the actual circumstances we may be facing can vary widely, and since a violent encounter is by its very nature a chaos situation, where things are changing by the second (if not microsecond), having a set response to an unsure situation is a recipe for disaster.

    I look to the reasons why I decided to carry for guidance here. I'm not a "sheepdog", a phrase that has become popular to describe the role of armed civilians in today's world, because a) a sheepdog is not part of the flock and b) a sheepdog has the shepherd's best interests in mind, not the flock's. To stretch the metaphor to the breaking point, I am, at best, a ram that has horns and knows when and how to use them. My reasons for carrying aren't to protect "society" as a whole, they're to protect my loved ones and myself, period, full stop. That means that my priorities in a bad situation are going to be the safety of my family and myself first, and then, if they are safe, the safety of others. Maybe. Depending on the situation. As always, I'm not a lawyer, and neither are my coworkers, so please, don't take what I'm saying as legal advice.

    Why We Carry
    We don't carry a gun to make others feel intimidated or to save the world, we carry a gun for that horrible day when using your gun would be worse than NOT using it. What will the circumstances be when that day comes? No one can tell, but having awareness of your surroundings and a defensive firearm with you gives you many more opportunities to NOT be a victim and come out on-top than if you are unaware and unarmed. That's what carrying a CCW gun will give you: A way to survive the worst day of your life.

  • Will Competition Get You Killed "On The Streets"?

    My friend Kathy Jackson had an interesting post on Facebook this week. She's one of the pre-eminent firearms trainers out there today, specializing in training women on the safe use of firearms, and I take her opinions very seriously.

    In some parts of the shooting world, it is popular to say that competition shooting "will get you killed on the street." You know what will really get you killed on the street? Not knowing how to effectively draw and use your gun! 

    When competition encourages you to practice important gunhandling skills that your range otherwise won't allow, like drawing from concealment or shooting very fast or shooting multiple targets, and also lets you test those skills under time and performance stress, it is a good thing. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

    (Nuance: just be sure you are practicing techniques that are also friendly for self defense and not *only* appropriate for competition. And remember that in both venues, you must know the rules of the road before you drive the gun.)

    I've never felt that competing in practical pistol or 3 gun has interfered in any way with my tactical training. If anything, it's made me a better student. Every single stage in a competition is a new challenge: There is no "Ok, I got this, I can stop learning now" moment in competition, because you will lose if you try that during a match. You are always watching your hits, thinking about your movement and trying to plan what to do next during a stage, and that same mindset comes in very handy when learning a new self-defense technique.

    Plus there is the element of stress inoculation. Every self-defense class I've been in has had an element of competition, be it directly as in a one-on-one shoot off, or indirectly, to see if you can deliver the shot when needed. 8 years of competition has pretty much made me immune to the stress of having to deliver the shot when needed in a class, but will that same immunity show up if, God forbid, I need it on the street?

    Dunno, and I hope I never find out. I do know I'd rather go into such a thing with a measure of confidence and the ability to adapt quickly than without such things.
