This week, the AR-15 podcast, broadcasts from SHOT Show 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Host, Reed Snyder, and Jake Challand, president of the Firearms Radio Network, recap the “Media Day At The Range.” SHOT Show is the largest annual firearm trade show in the world.
The duo discuss some of his highlight rifles, and the attendant pro/cons of each, that they fired at the range. Among them, a proprietary Miller Precision Arms 300 WINMAG in AR-10 platform; the Israeli bullpup TAR-21 aka Tavor in 9mm; Beretta ARX100; Daniel Defense MILSPEC Mark 18. Reed gets his hands on Trijicon’s VCOG–does it live up to expectations?
Other topics ranged from innovations such as Adcor’s piston driven system and non reciprocating charging handle, to Sharps Rifle Company’s .25 caliber round, to Lancer Magazines. Are they worth it? Do they fit your application? Additionally, they discuss manufacturers like Aimpoint and other traditionally tactical manufacturers delving into the hunting sphere. Finally, they touch on the innovation curve of the last few decades, the direction of the industry, and a potential game changing Tactical Fire Control’s new trigger system. Reed elaborates on the trigger system that resets the trigger faster, giving the operator a faster trigger time.
