We've heard rumblings for the first part of this year that Sig was going to release a new P365 pistol but we didn't know what it would be. We saw some rumors that there might be a P365 Legion and then logically a longer slide would be awesome. Well that's what Sig is releasing... The P365 XL.
The part number is 365XL-9-BXR3 and UPC code is 798681618798.
The Sig Sauer P365 XL is a larger P365 with longer slide and taller grip. It has a 12rd flush fit magazine where the standard P365 has a 12rd magazine. Out of the box it comes with a flat trigger too! Continue reading
This press release is from Nighthawk Custom.
Nighthawk Custom, manufacturer of the world’s finest custom made 1911’s, is proud to introduce the newest model in their lineup, the Firehawk.
This cutting edge offering from Nighthawk Custom offers the latest advancements in the company’s long line of purpose-built innovation. Nighthawk Custom has utilized a recoil-taming single port compensator, a Bull Barrel and a full-length guide rod that adds weight to the front of the pistol to reduce muzzle rise. In addition, the Firehawk has a modified government length slide that has been shortened from 5” to 3.9”. A newly designed commander length spring and reverse plug system maintains the standard recoil impulse of a 5-inch 1911 for reliability. Continue reading
The 2019 SHOT Show is almost upon us and we're a little late this year with our details on Sig Sauer's 2019 additions. We're playing catch up after our relocation and settling into our new building in Wright City, MO.
Classic Line Updates
Starting with the classic line, the P229 Legion SAO was added to Sig's catalog. There are two variants with differing magazine capacity:
We've got both of these Legion pistols in stock already and listed on our online store with detailed in-house photos.
Sadly, the P229 is the only model in the classic line that saw new releases.
We follow quite a few Facebook groups to stay on the front line and monitor consumer discussions. There is a post in the Facebook group Sig Sauer P365 (https://www.facebook.com/groups/306851383159861/) by Phil Strader:
Again, thanks for everyone’s input and feedback with regards to the P365. There have been isolated incidents of the pistol’s failure to return to battery. Although this can possibly be traced back to a grip issue (whether unlocked wrists or high thumbs), we do not want even rare instances of issues to make our customers lose confidence in the P365. Therefore, we are tweaking the gun to improve RTB conditions. This will help to allow every 365 user to experience what so many have already expressed online in very positive reviews. We are making these adjustments now and will resume shipping very shortly. Thanks again for everyone’s patience. Continue reading
We've been busy working our way around the floor of SHOT Show and have lots of photos to share.
By far the new Sig P365 is the most exciting new release for the show. Truthfully the SHOT Show has been pretty lackluster in terms of new releases.
Most manufacturers started releasing new model information as far back as November and while there have been some great additions to existing lines (Kimber had some cool new variations on their 1911 lines).
STI dropped quite a few of their 1911's last year. There are really almost none left. They have, however, added quite a few variations to their 2011 line. We'll provide some more information on the changes from STI but we do have photos to share from the booth.
STI released a few new handguns this year at SHOT. Their HOST line allows for the easy mounting of red dot sights.
They're also offering a limited run of six pistols as part of their Six Pack. This includes a tan and black Marauder in 9mm, DVC Island in 9mm, Nitro Marauder in 9mm, Tactical Lite DS TR Gray in 9mm, Marauder Hunter in 10mm and a Hex Tac SS 4.0 Burnt Bronze in 9mm.
Below are some photos from STI's assortment of pistols on display at the show:
Sig Sauer spared no expense, as usual, with their 2017 SHOT Show booth.
In recent years, Sig's booth has grown along with the variety and depth in their product lines.
Below are some photos from Sig's booth at the 2017 SHOT Show. We'll try to stock the majority of their new products and should have new items arriving within a month or two.
Every year we do our best to give our customers the news on new product releases and we've got a list of updates that are coming from Kimber America for 2017.
A quick summary... Multiple new models including a 6" RMR 10mm 1911, more K6S (revolver) variants, and lower prices!
Last year Kimber updated the Stainless II Family by changing from rubber to wood grips. This year they're changing the front sight from a black low profile sight to a fiber optic sight.
Stainless II Family
We've got from STI's booth at SHOT Show 2016. Below is a quick overview of the new models along with photos below that.
