New Rifles Day 3

New Rifles Day 3

A little light on rifles today (more handguns, thanks to a boatload from SIG), but the JR Carbine was a big hit, and SIG's rifles were a blast as well.

Blackhawk bipod

Blackhawk is getting into the shooting accessories biz. I was impressed with their new traversing/pivoting bipod. It adjusts evenly and smoothly, and you can control the resistance easily with the turn of a tensioning screw — from your shooting position. I\'m getting one to test and will give a full report in a future issue of RifleShooter magazine.

JR Carbine

Maybe a big stick will! Other features of the JR include an ability to switch ejection from right-hand to left-hand, and you can swap out calibers as well. The basic rifle sells for around $700 in 9mm, $725 for .40 and .45. Conversion kits sell for $200. Last but not least, it\'s 100% made in the USA, in Rochester, NY.

JR Carbine

RifleShooter\'s Jim Tarr shoots the new JR Carbine. JR stands for "just right," and I think they have a point as it would make an excellent defensive weapon — one that takes Glock magazines. It\'s chambered to 9mm, .40 and .45, and in both .40 and 9mm proved to be super controllable and accurate as well.

JR Carbine

While it\'s not an AR platform — it is blowback-operated and has a one-piece receiver — it does share some AR controls, and in fact it will accept AR triggers. As mentioned, it feeds from standard Glock magazines, and if a standard pistol mag doesn\'t strike your fancy...(go to next photo)

SIG 556 Russian

In keeping with what is emerging as a minor theme at the seminar, SIG Sauer brought its 556 Russian, chambered to 7.62x39 and accepts AK magazines. It has a side-folding stock and ambi controls. The rifle has a 1:9.5 twist, and it uses the larger .310 bore to accommodate all the non-SAAMI-spec ammo that\'s floating around on the market. MSRP is around [imo-slideshow gallery=17],260.
