SHOT Show Recap Day 2
The International Sportsman recap of what the editors found interesting on day 2 of SHOT Show 2020. There are more articles and videos coming out but here is a preview of some interesting items at the show.
Remington 700 Titanium Receiver
Remington is now offering 700 titanium receivers for purchase. Previously if you wanted a titanium 700, you would have to purchase a gun from the Remington Custom Shop. Now enthusiasts that want to build their rifles on a factory 700 titanium receiver have that option.
Each receiver is made to order through the custom shop. If you want a spiral fluted bolt, they can do that, want a different bolt handle, no problem. Remington will include the bottom metal or not based on what the customer wants. You can select any trigger and have it installed or install on your own. Currently, there is not a price set for these custom blueprinted actions, but since the customer has tons of options, expect the price to vary.
Hush Puppy Project Model 2
Hush Puppy Project was back at SHOT this year with version two of their silencer. This short compact silencer uses six wipes to provide maximum sound suppression in a compact package. Also new was a Glock 43X with the Hush Puppy slide lock.
For those not familiar with this system, it is made up of the pistol with slide lock, the silencer, and the Super Vel ammunition. This combination addresses the three factors that make guns loud. The silencer addresses the report of the firearm. The subsonic ammunition addresses the sonic boom. Finally, the slide lock addresses the port noise and mechanical action noise by locking the slide in battery.
All three parts of the Hush Puppy Project system are available from Lipsey’s, so ask your dealer to order them for you.
This new sight for Glocks features some designs that are practical and innovative but might seem unorthodox to some. The Triclops sights allow the shooter to align the sight on two planes, horizontal and vertical. Three fiber optic rods are placed in a triangle pattern for sight alignment. The rods can be different colors or combinations. If the rods are broken, the sight will still function. The Triclops hood discourages the non-dominate eye from interfering with target acquisition, enabling the shooter to keep both eyes open. The rear of the sight is cut at an angle to help the eyes focus on the sight. Available now for Glocks at $179.
Revolutionary Roller Locks Modern MP5
Revolutionary Roller Locks has more than a few upgrades for the MP5. First, they have several different stock options including the ACR stock adapter shown in the picture below. Moving forward the heart of the MP5 remains the same but with US-made parts for all the internals. The forearm and top cover and what really makes this exciting. There is no cocking tube welded to the receiver instead, it is incorporated into the top handguard. The top and bottom handguard are precision machined to return to zero if you have optics attached. There are several options for the handguards and forearm so check out their site for more information.
Pictured below is their internally suppressed version that comes apart for cleaning, unlike the original MP5.
Remington Custom Shop 40-X
The second Remington product on the list is also from the Remington Custom Shop. It uses the 40-X Remington 700 titanium receiver available from the custom shop. This rifle is incredibly light at 4 lbs 12 oz.
This particular rifle features “chainmaille” fluting on the bolt and barrel. The recoil lug is pinned to the receiver and the stock is a Manners UC stock which weighs around 17oz. The 18″ barrel is a premium Shillen barrel chambered in 7mm-08.
Since this is the Remington Custom Shop you can change everything on this rifle from the color and camo to the barrel length and caliber. There are no limits to what the Custom Shop can do. The price for this specific combination is $4,000.
