SHOT Show 2015 Day 4

I like to start the final day of SHOT Show with a heavy dose of 10mm, so my first stop of the day was Eagle Imports to see if they had the Grand Power 10mm on display.  No such luck.  The rep. stated that they should be in the US by summer and there was no indication of pricing.  I did get m hands on one of the .40 cal models.  Felt good in my hands and nice trigger.  The X-Caliber model had a 2 3/4 lb. trigger out the factory with one of the best and quickest resets I’ve ever felt. I covered the STI Perfect 10 on day one.  Here is the (single-stack, 5″) Nitro 10.

and a couple 10mm models from EAA.

Nighthawk Custom is a high-end, custom 1911 manufacturer with several models available in 10mm.  The Dominator was on display in .45, but available in 10mm.

The 5″ Falcon was on display in 10mm and retails for $3595. nh-falcon

The star of the show, however, was the Heine long slide 10mm.  Retails for $3795.

Traffic was lighter yesterday, so I finally got a decent picture of the S&W M&P Shield without thumb safety. mp-shield

I also got to spend a bit more time in the POF booth and saw the Revolt models – bolt-action AR-style for restricted states.

I showed the new 7.62 c 39 model yesterday.  POF is also getting into the DI market with a new BCG that avoids staking issues.

Just Right Carbines introduced a new .357 Sig model along with takedowns in all calibers.  I put in a strong suggestion for a 10mm model.

The Marine model is in chrome, above, and JRC also displayed some experimental models that do not yet have names.

I was glad to see Trijicon’s quick adoption of the Glock MOS.  You can order an RMR Mounting Kit for the MOS and then mount a LED (3.25 MOA, 6.5 MOA), Adjustable LED (1.0 MOA, 3.25 MOA, 6.5 MOA), or Dual Illuminated (7.0 MOA, 9.0 MOA, 12.9 MOA, 13.0 MOA).  Trijicon will also sell suppressor sights to co-witness with the RMR!

Now, you are supposed to get four pre-drilled adapters with an MOS model along with a cover plate for non-optic use.  The adapters are for Plate 1 – EOTech, Insight, & Meopta Plate 2 – Trijicon RMR Plate 3 – C-More Plate 4 – Leupold Deltapoint

On a personal basis, it was cool to finally meet Hickock45.

I met Jim West at NRA a couple years ago and we had a bit more fun with this photo.

The real star is the .50 Alaskan takedown.

I went back to Glock’s booth to take a quick photo of Rick Wyatt talking about the MOS models.  I met the entire family at NRA in Houston and he is incredible about taking photos with people.  Before I could take a second shot, he walked out from behind the counter and asked if I wanted a photo with him.  Super cool guy.
