2014 SHOT Show - Media Day With Gunblast.Com - Part 2

In Part Two, Jeff Quinn of again previews a number of new firearms being released at SHOT Show.

Included are a number of revolvers from Smith and Wesson including the reintroduced Model 66, the Model 686-6 in .357 Mag, the 5-shot 460 S&W Magnum, and the Model 986 in 9mm. This last gun seems to have very minimal recoil with the 9mm.

Speaking of low recoil, Armalite has introduced the AR-31 .308 Target Rifle that has a muzzle break more like one would see on a Barrett .50 BMG rifle.

Sig Sauer held their portion of Media Day at a separate range from what I understand. Jeff shot the new Sig P320 which is their first striker fired pistol and the Sig MPX submachine gun. It is a damn shame that the Hughes Amendment prevents us from being able to buy one of those because it looks like a great gun.


  1. Good report. And that is sad...

  2. Eye really appreciate the information ewe provided about the muzzle break on Armalite's gnu rifle. Can it bee repaired?

  3. Glad to see S&W bringing back the K-frame magnum. Too bad about the 4.25" barrel. That makes it .05" too long to compete in IDPA SSR division.
    Does S&W have any competitive shooters involved in their development process?
