As I was leaving the show on Tuesday I came across this artist working on this piece of art.The hands in the picture are his father in laws, and of his son. Drawing needed several more hours of detail work, thought all of you would appreciate this man’s talents.

The lower receiver and bolt carrier design allows the upper receiver chambered in 5.56 NATO ( .223 Remington ) to be swapped out for any Colt Mil-Spec upper without any tools, in under a minute – allowing the user to reconfigure the weapon at a moments notice. CM7 – .308 Win. CM65 – 6.5 CM $2299.00
I stopped by the folks from Quiqlite as I did last year, they had a prototype aluminum light that was in the works during last years show. This year they released it, the new QX2. I have the QuiqliteX and love it, the X2 is robust and has more lumens.
I liked the new X2 enough to pick one up at the show.
I attended the American Tactical press conference, they announced three new products. The GSG-16 .22 Rimfire, Galeo rifles, and the SAF-T-FIRST AR Trigger.
The GSG-16 was very light weight, and had a cool buttstock that allows you to store an extra magazine in it.
The SAF-T-FIRST trigger comes in two variants, Mil-Spec, or a light weight Nano Composite. This trigger allow you to load the chamber with the safety ON to reduce accidental discharges. Allows the AR to be stored with the hammer forward and in the safe position.
All in attendance received this trigger.
Thanks American Tactical !!!

JD Williams form Heckler & Koch was kind enough to show me this pistol version of the 416 .22 LR.
JD said they ran incredibly well on industry day at the range even with all the wind and dirt that got in them.
If you are trying to break-in a new shooter give the 416 in multiple varients a look.
Our correspondent Jim Fitzpatrick on the Right, with JD of H&K on the left.
The Springfield Armory pistols I did not get pics of on range day, here you go…..
Both pistols ran well.

On level 5 Pop-up preview for today only, I was walking the isles and ran into Bill Frady from Lock N Load podcast / Gun Owners News Hour, and Benny Kennedy from AR500 Armor. Bill was doing a video spot with the guys as they sponsor his show, so I wanted to stop and say hello. Gentlemen, thanks for taking a moment of your busy schedule to speak with me a minute. Bill’s daily show is one of my favorit shows to listen to, give him a listen you will thank me as it is excellent.
Listen to Bill’s Lock N Load podcast wherever you listen to podcasts. And most definitely check out all the products AR500 has to offer.
New door finish from Fort Knox.
Talking to the rep Willie, I asked him what they called this finish, “He said they didn’t have a name for it yet” I have been in the Sign Industry for 30 years now, and when Gold Leaf is put on vehicle lettering etc, it is called turned or engine turned. It’s done with a drill and a soft piece of cotton to achieve that effect on Gold Leaf. Can use Scothbrite discs on Aluminium or steel.
The owner of the company has an entire safe done this way, really cool !!!!!!
