Recoil - My 10/22 identifies as Binary, courtesy of Franklin Armory

Binary triggers can be a lot of fun, but the heartache for most sets in when you have to lay out the cash for the ammo. Sure enough, one of the more common arguments against the binary trigger is that it “wastes ammo” or it's “too expensive to feed”.

Franklin Armory decided enough was enough and has produced a safe and effective binary trigger for one of the most rugged and reliable rimfire rifles on the planet: The Ruger 10/22....

....The installation was a little bit more than replacing your factory 10/22 trigger with a custom trigger. Most significant will be installing the new “selector”.

The Ruger 10/22 uses a cross-bolt safety mounted in the trigger guard. Obviously, this would pose a challenge to using the existing safety with a binary trigger as you need three positions to make it work (safe, semi and binary). So Franklin redesigned it into a three-position ambidextrous selector. To the rear for safe, straight down for semi-auto and fully forward for binary.

So I'm thinking it's time to sell off my VZ58 and invest the funds into a Stag 10. Both are non-restricted here in Canada (for now), but for a little investment I can run a much more versatile platform.

Anyone have experience with the Stag 10? From what I've seen they're fairly popular stateside?

Magpul announcement....

Lightweight but incredibly strong, our PMAG D-50 GL9 - PCC is a highly-reliable, 9x19mm Parabellum, 50-round drum magazine for large-format pistols and pistol caliber carbines that feed from GLOCK pattern magazines. The Magpul D-50 GL9 – PCC boasts many of the proven features of its 5.56 and 7.62 predecessors, the PMAG D-60 AR/M4 and PMAG D-50 LR/SR GEN M3, while providing the user with a similar magazine capacity increase.

The unique drum configuration keeps the height of the magazine manageable, allowing for prone firing and easier storage. For easy loading, it includes a ratcheting loading lever that removes tension from the internal spring. It also includes a rounds-remaining rear window, a high-visibility follower and a capacity indication roller.

Easily disassembled for cleaning and featuring an innovative bolt hold-open feature, the D-50 GL9 – PCC reliably locks the bolt back on empty when used with firearms designed to lock back on Glock pattern magazine followers.

Sweet.

That was the last thing on my wishlist for building a modern PPSH-41 with the Ruger PC9. Now all I need is the carbine with the free float handguard and one (or more) of these drums and I'll be good to go. :clap:

As cool as those 50 round drums look I'm not interested in getting one. First off, I'm an old school Navy gunner and the reason we used stick mags in our Thompsons was that drums were unreliable and couldn't be trusted when your life depended on it. With ETS and other brands 32 round Glock mags commonly being sold for under $20 and working very reliably these just don't have much appeal for me. Besides, I can get ETS mags in various colors and know by sight what ammo is loaded in it.

OK, now I'm more interested in the PC9/40.

I've been debating a 10/22 takedown with that style stock for a couple years now, and a 9mm or .40s&w is rather more attractive (in no small part because I wouldn't be "doubling up" on something I already own).

TFB - [SHOT 2020] Arsenal’s New AK-20 Series of Rifles

AK-20 rifles will be available in rifle, pistol and SBR configurations....The milled receivers also feature QD sling swivel sockets on either side, right above the pistol grip where the pivot points of underfolder AK stocks are normally located....One of the key features of the AK-20 is the free-floated handguard system. The handguard consists of top and bottom portions. The top section covers the new gas tube and provides a top Picatinny rail that starts at the gas block and extends back over the top cover of the receiver....Another important design change is the addition of an adjustable gas block with three settings – normal use, suppressed/subsonic and the third position completely closes the gas port turning the gun into basically a straight-pull bolt action rifle.

Outdoor Hub - [SHOT Show 2020] New from Sig Sauer: The P210 Carry Pistol

Sig Sauer debuted a new offering for 2020 at this year’s range day just prior to the annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Sig P210 Carry pistol is a spinoff of the Sig P210 Target model in 9mm... Shooting the Sig P210 Carry, I found it to be extremely accurate making off-hand shots at 30 to 35 yards on steel silhouettes. Other notable features include an aluminum frame, rounded edges for ease of carry, G10 grips, and front and rear slide serrations making working the slide a breeze. It also sports SigLite tritium night sights.

[SHOT 2020] Kel-Tec SUB2000 CQB – Integrally Suppressed Folding PCC
At SHOT Show range day today Kel-Tec introduced their brand new version of the SUB2000, the SUB2000 CQB. The CQB has an integral suppressor, and still folds easily for compact storage. The forend of the rifle actually functions as part of the suppressor, and take-down is extremely easy. You lift a tab and unscrew the front half of the rifle which then slides about an inch forward. The rifle folds in half just like your standard SUB2000.

I'm conflicted. Ignoring jabs at Kel-tec: it's nice and compact, but I just find myself kinda scratching my head over the idea of a suppressor I can't move around.

TNW Firearms announced what it says is the lightest production pistol caliber carbine: the new 9mm LTE. How light is it? 3.95 pounds in rifle trim with a 16″ threaded barrel. This is a no tools required, fast takedown rifle that feeds from Glock-pattern magazines. Like the existing TNW 9mm carbines, this rifle is a blowback rifle that shares some limited compatibility with AR15 pattern rifles.

There's some great stuff coming from SHOT this year. I think it was last year or the year before that was very disappointing... Basically all accessories.

With the time it takes product development and engineering, of basically small companies (even big companies are small compared to other markets), my bet is there is a 2 year delay to mirror the market.

Either way, I'm loving it

I think it may have been the 2018 SHOT Show that was the disappointing one, JC. I believe that one was the one that was pretty much all accessories and very little in the way of new guns.

NRA American Hunter - SHOT Show 2020: Cimarron Bad Boy 10mm

Well-known purveyor of Old West replica firearms, Cimarron is expanding its Bad Boy revolver line with a brand new chambering. In a nod to the growing popularity of the caliber, particularly with the handgun-hunting market, Cimarron has unveiled the revolver in 10 mm Auto. The Bad Boy offers hunters and shooters a traditional six-shot cylinder in a Single Action Army Pre-War frame, with an 1860 Army-style, one piece walnut grip. The eight-inch barrel is octagonal and wears target sights, though a Picatinny rail is available for the mounting of alternative optics.

That reminds me of the last gun show I went to, which was almost a decade ago.

There were maybe ten dealers selling guns and the rest of the building was taken up by garage sale trinket sellers and the weirdly out of place vintage toy dealers.

Who goes to a gun show and thinks "Man, these gun are great, but you know what I'm really looking for ? A Mork and Mindy lunch box." ? :lol:
