Henry Repeating Arms, one of the leading firearms manufacturers in the United States announced that it has manufactured the one-millionth Lever Action .22 rifle- known as the model H001. As with all Henry firearms and any product that bears the Henry name, it is made in America and sold in over 30 countries worldwide.

The first Henry Lever Action .22 rifles started shipping in March of 1997 from their original factory in Brooklyn, New York. The model was introduced with the corporate motto, “Made in America and Priced Right.” The company moved production in September of 2008 to their current 110,000 sq. ft. facility in Bayonne, New Jersey. Over the years, several variations of the H001 were added including a youth model, a carbine with a large loop lever, octagon barreled editions, and additional calibers in .22 Magnum and .17 HMR. More than 2 million H001 series rifles have sold counting these variations. They are popular among firearms enthusiasts, in particular squirrel and varmint hunters, farmers, rimfire target shooters and “plinkers.” After 2 decades it still remains an exceptional value for consumers.

Anthony Imperato, President and owner of Henry Repeating Arms reminisces, “When I attended the SHOT Show in 1996 I displayed the prototype H001 on top of an 8-foot folding table. We didn’t have a big budget booth and it was a no-frills affair. I had no idea that it would go on to be a top seller, a staple of the firearms industry. My goal was to deliver value, quality, a smooth reliable action and of course, made in America.”

“This is the rifle that put Henry Repeating Arms on the map, energized the lever action market and resurrected the Henry name,” Imperato continues. “Hitting the one-million milestone validates that we have done something right. I couldn’t be more humbled by the incredible response and support Henry has received over the past two decades. I remain forever grateful to our customers, distributors, dealers and our employees.”

Auction will benefit organizations that support conservation, hunting, firearms safety, shooting sports programs and the 2nd Amendment

Recognizing the significance of Henry Repeating Arms’ milestone, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association of the firearms industry, selected the one-millionth H001 as the 2018 SHOT Show auction rifle. The historic gun is being auctioned now by the Hunting Heritage Trust on GunBroker.com and will conclude on Friday, January 26, 2018, the final day of the 2018 SHOT Show. All proceeds from the auction will fund organizations that support the shooting sports, hunting, conservation, firearms safety, and those who defend the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of firearms history. And we have decided to make this one-millionth H001 ever more special and unique,” added Imperato. “This is the first-ever H001 to feature a silver-finished receiver, which distinguishes the rifle, and beautifies the custom hand-engraved scroll patterns. The rich engraving is completed with inlaid 24-carat gold and is set off exquisitely by the exhibition grade American Walnut stock.” This unique rifle was hand engraved by the artisans at Baron Engraving of Trumbull, CT.

Henry Repeating Arms is aiming to surpass the SHOT Show auction record of $136,014. This one-of-one rifle is available for sale at a public auction on Gunbroker.com . The auction will conclude on January 26, 2018.

Review: Ruger GP100 Seven Shot

Who needs a seven shot .357 Magnum revolver? A lot of people, as far as I can tell. Everyone I’ve shown the new Ruger GP100 seven-shooter wants one and now that Ruger has them with 2.5”, 4.20” and 6” barrels it looks like there will be a model for everyone.  Revolvers are accurate, powerful and easy to understand and shoot. Versatility is a hallmark of .357 Magnum revolvers as they can shoot a huge variety of both .38 Special and .357 Magnum ammunition suited to every purpose from target shooting to defense and hunting. I would wager there is more ammunition available in more varieties for .38/.357 revolvers than for any other handgun round.

So how did we arrive at this particular GP100? That story starts in 1986 when the GP100 was introduced. Ruger was highly successful with their Security Six lineup of medium frame revolvers that were about the same size as the Smith & Wesson K-frames. The Security Six competed with the Smith Model 19 and 66 and gained a reputation for being robust and easier to maintain. We issued both during my Border Patrol tenure, and while the Smiths were viewed as more elegant the Rugers were seen as more durable. In terms of maintenance the Ruger was the hands down winner. Whereas the Smiths required screwdrivers of the proper size and a fair degree of knowledge, the Rugers could be taken down with anything – even a nail – and could be serviced by anyone after a couple of minutes of instruction.

Eventually the law enforcement world reached a consensus and determined the K-frame Smiths and medium frame Rugers weren’t strong enough for a steady diet of hot .357 Magnum ammunition. Considering most every department practiced and qualified with .38 Special target ammunition and actually fired very few Magnums through their revolvers I’m not sure how this conclusion was reached, but in any event it resulted in two of the best .357 Magnum revolvers of all time, the medium-large  L-frame Smith 586 and 686 and the Ruger GP100 of almost identical proportions. As with the earlier revolvers the Ruger is easier to take down and maintain and is considered a bit stronger than the S&W but the fact remains they were and are excellent revolvers.

While there are numerous GP100 variations the one that’s been missing is a 7 shot cylinder model. Up until now Smith & Wesson has owned this share of the market so I suppose Ruger decided to get in on the act and make not one, but three (so far), variations for their loyal customers. The revolver I have at hand is the first of these to be introduced and it has the 4.20” barrel. As well, it sports the original GP100 rubber stocks with the rosewood inserts Ruger fans have been clamoring for. The rear sight is the usual white outline adjustable model with the tiny slot windage screw. Do yourself a favor if you have adjustable sight Rugers and go to www.shopruger.com and get the screwdriver kit I designed made up of Brownells parts. And speaking of Brownells, they stock replacement sights, speed loaders and just about anything you could want for your GP100 and many, many other guns.

The front sight is a green fiber optic held in place by a spring and detent. This is the best front sight system ever as sights can be easily replaced if damaged or should you wish to switch to another style or color. Again, go to ShopRuger. Dimensionally, the revolver appears to be the same size as the 6-shot GP100. The fluted cylinder is the same diameter and speed loaders for the S&W 686 + revolvers will work in the Ruger cylinder. The revolver weighs a hefty 40 ounces empty and my Lyman electronic trigger pull tester gizmo says the single action trigger breaks at 4.5 pounds while the double action pull is about 12 pounds. The trigger feels a bit stiff and a bit gritty to me but that’s okay because it is very usable as is and can be easily cleaned up and brought to perfection. By the way, back in the dark ages we used to have to cut down and smooth target triggers to turn them into suitable smooth, double action gunfighter triggers. After a time the manufacturers figured this out and I’m happy to report the GP100 has a perfectly shaped, smooth trigger for good double action shooting.

Stopping by Simply Rugged Holsters I took a few pictures of their beautiful holsters for the GP. Rob and his crew would be happy to make you anything from a plain holster to one stamped or carved and with exotic skins like stingray, alligator, Cape buffalo or rattlesnake. Highly recommended, high quality gunleather.

The Ruger proved to be exactly as I expected when I took it to Gunsite’s North Range for testing. Shooting at a steel target at 25 yards I was able to keep every round of .38 Special and .357 Magnum defensive ammunition on the plate. I really appreciate the sight picture I get with the green fiber optic front sight; it’s easy to see and there is enough daylight on either side of the sight when viewed through the rear sight to assure proper alignment. The sights were perfectly regulated and I found no need to adjust them. The revolver is pleasant to shoot with any .38 Special loads, including hot +P defensive fodder, and anywhere from reasonably comfortable to a bit on the uncomfortable side when firing  .357 ammunition. Like we did in the Border Patrol, I rather imagine folks will do most of their shooting with .38 Special ammunition while reserving the hottest Magnum stuff for “serious social purposes.”

If you would like to have a high quality .357 Magnum revolver that will last for generations you should consider the Ruger GP100. It’s available in several variations at your local emporium and these revolvers, like the ones my compadres and I carried, will “do to ride the river with.”

PEORIA, Ariz. – Apex Tactical Specialties announces the re-release of its popular triggers for the Sig Sauer P320 pistols. The new triggers are available for pre-order now and are specifically designed for use in the factory upgraded pistol models.

Following Sig Sauer’s voluntary upgrade program for the P320, announced on August 8, 2017, Apex elected to suspend sale of its own triggers for the pistol until such time as the company could thoroughly test redesigned products with the latest Sig Sauer safety upgrades for the P320.

Apex is pleased to announce that, after extensive testing, new, lighter versions of all three Apex triggers are currently in production and will be officially released on Tuesday, December 26.

Dealer and distributor orders are shipping now, ahead of the December 26 release. Retailers and wholesale distributors that have not yet ordered and wish to stock the new triggers can contact Apex at dealer@apextactical.com or (623) 322-0200 for pricing and quantity availability.

Known for innovative work transforming striker-fired trigger systems, Apex has three trigger options specifically for the Sig Sauer factory upgraded P320 models. Each trigger is a direct replacement to the factory curved trigger and is easily installed without the need for tools or fixtures. All three triggers maintain the critical factory drop safety values.

The Apex Flat-Faced Action Enhancement Trigger, part #112-025, increases trigger reach to the natural resting position of the shooter’s finger and allows the shooter to position their finger lower on the trigger face to take advantage of the increased leverage. The trigger is not designed to reduce the trigger pull weight.

Apex Flat Advanced Trigger, part #112-026, also increases trigger reach to the natural resting position, but is designed to reduce the factory trigger pull weight by approximately 2 lbs.

Both the Flat-Faced Action Enhancement Trigger and the Flat Advanced Trigger are available now for customer pre-order at ApexTactical.com.

Availability of the Curved Advanced Trigger, part #112-027, which mimics the factory contour and reduces the factory trigger pull weight by approximately 2 lbs., will be announced in a few weeks.

Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, introduced the MicroStream® USB, a USB rechargeable version of its popular MicroStream® flashlight. The compact new light is designed to provide amazing brightness and long run times for a flashlight of its size, delivering up to 250 lumens and 3.5 hours of run time, while also offering the benefits of rechargeability. It measures only 3.87 inches long, and weighs only 1.20 ounces.

“The MicroStream® USB is small enough to carry in a pocket or clip to a cap, while offering extraordinary lumen output and the convenience of charging on the go at any USB port or from an AC wall adaptor,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “It’s the ideal lighting tool, whether for automotive or industrial jobs, patrol duty, hunting and other outdoor sports, or DIY jobs.”

Using power LED technology, the new light features two lighting modes, high and low. On high, it provides 250 lumens, 1,150 candela, a 68-meter beam distance and a run time of 1.5 hours. On low, it offers a run time of 3.5 hours, 50 lumens, 250 candela and a beam distance of 31 meters.

The MicroStream USB includes a convenient push-button tail cap switch that provides easy, one-handed operation of the light’s momentary or constant on operation and lighting modes. It uses a 350 mAh lithium ion cell battery that can be recharged using the Micro USB charge port under the sliding sleeve. The light fully recharges in four hours, with Red and Green LED lights to indicate charging status.

The new light offers durable, abrasion-resistant construction, featuring a machined aluminum case with a Type II Military Spec anodized finish. The MicroStream USB is IPX4 rated for weather resistance, and is impact resistant-tested to one meter. It comes with a removable, two-way pocket/hat clip.

The MicroStream USB has an MSRP of $50.00, and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

 

 

Springfield Armory’s Venerable 1911 TRP, Now Available in 10mm

Springfield Armory’s elite 1911 TRP is now available in the powerful 10mm cartridge. Springfield released two new TRP models, one with a 5-inch barrel and a long-slide with a 6-inch barrel. Both variants offer tactically proven engineering, greater stopping power and now more terminal velocity.

The TRP (Tactical Response Pistol) line earned the FBI’s coveted HRT 1911 pistol contract, and before the release of these two new variants, the Springfield TRP Operator ® 1911s were only available in .45 ACP. The TRP has been the standard for serious fighting handguns since its introduction, and the new 10mm variants continue that tradition.

“We have offered 10mm 1911s from our Springfield Custom Shop for many years but this is the first production 10mm 1911 offering in the Springfield Armory lineup,” Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese said. “The TRP 10mm is soft shooting, built for accuracy and takes advantage of the full potential of the hottest 10mm rounds, just as the cartridge was originally intended.”

The forged steel frames and slides of the TRP models are fitted to Match Grade stainless steel barrels with fully supported ramps. The frames and slides are coated with Black-T®, a corrosion resistant finish that is designed to protect the pistol from heavy use and harsh conditions. Integrated three-slot accessory rails allow lights and lasers to easily be attached. Both variants feature 3-dot tritium night sights. The 5-inch version features tactical-rack rear, while the 6-inch model has a fully adjustable rear.

The Octo-Grip front strap and mainspring, coupled with G10 VZ Grip®, make the TRP easy to hold. With a crisp 4.5- to 5-pound trigger pull, the Springfield Armory Gen 2 Speed Trigger offers custom-grade feel and performance. Each 10mm TRP model comes with two 8-round magazines. The TRP is an incredibly soft-shooting pistol, due to the proper balancing of the recoil impulse with a heavier slide/barrel combination in conjunction with an optimized recoil spring.

The 5-inch barrel TRP model weighs in at 40 oz., while the 6-inch model weighs 45 oz., making these full-sized 1911 pistols soft-shooting and well-balanced options in a serious fighting handgun.

GENESEO, ILL.  – Springfield Armory’s M1A Series has a hard-won reputation for handling any mission, any condition, any foe, at any range – and for taking home trophies from monster bucks to National Match crowns. Highly precise .308 WIN-chambered M1A models are found in the hands of elite tactical teams, snipers, backcountry hunters and competitive marksmen.

Now skilled shooters can get legendary Springfield M1A durability in 6.5 Creedmoor caliber.

With high muzzle velocity, low recoil, and extreme long-range accuracy, the Creedmoor round is becoming increasingly popular and easily accessible. The new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor makes the most of the ammo’s attributes with the rifle design, craftsmanship, balance and response
known to Springfield Armory’s storied M1A platform.

The M1A’s National Match Grade, 22-inch medium weight stainless steel barrel provides a long sight radius for outstanding iron sight accuracy, with a 4-groove 1:8 right-hand twist and shotsteadyingmuzzle brake to put rounds right where intended. The NM Grade .062 post front sight is paired with a NM Grade non-hooded .0520 aperture rear sight that’s ideal for distant targets and adjustable for ½ MOA windage and 1 MOA elevation. The 2-stage trigger is National Match
tuned to 4.5 – 5 pounds, for a crisp, confident pull. The new 6.5 Creedmoor M1A is a “true 1000-yard rifle” that delivers a level of shooting performance few rifles can match, especially when paired with an SA scope mount and your optic of choice.

The new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor is offered with your choice of a solid black composite stock, or a precision-adjustable stock that lets shooters dial in individual fit and feel. A 10-round magazine smoothly feeds rounds into the chamber for reliable shooting.

“Having a 6.5 Creedmoor caliber in the M1A lineup gives long-range shooters more choices with the precision and accuracy they require,” says Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese. “They can choose the round they prefer, and take advantage of the legendary accuracy of the M1A platform to make the most of their shooting prowess.”

With a length of 45 to 46.24 inches and unloaded weight of 11.4 pounds, the new M1A 6.5 Creedmoor is a well-balanced, extremely accurate and precise tool for marksmen eager to raise their long-distance performance.

“Our mission is, and always will be, to offer responsible citizens the finest firearm and the most thorough customer support of any brand,” says Springfield’s Reese. “You can see that commitment in every product we make. It especially shines in the new 6.5 Creedmoor M1A.”

For California Residents: The M1A 6.5 Creedmoor with the black composite stock is California approved.

The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name. Springfield Armory Inc. engineers, manufactures and assembles their legendary M1A, 1911 and SAINT® AR-15 lines of firearms in Geneseo, IL, and since 2001, has enjoyed a strategic, collaborative partnership with the state-of-the-art factory in Croatia working hand-in-hand to develop and engineer the multiple award-winning line of XD® polymer pistols that have become staples in the US marketplace.
