TFB visits Enforce Tac and IWA OutdoorClassics (Germany)

On March 1-2, The Enforce Tac exhibition opens up the doors to an interesting world of “police equipment, security or tactical solutions.This is where we find the Class III firearms.

This is followed, March 3-6, by IWA OutdoorClassics,the world-leading trade fair for hunting, shooting sports, equipment for outdoor activities and for civilian and official security applications“.

TFB will be at both exhibitions, but with limited capability, trying to cover as much as possible.

Please don’t expect a “live coverage” as with SHOT Show, but what we see, hear, feel and experience will be presented in due time.

Ex-Arctic Ranger. Competitive practical shooter and hunter with an European focus. Always ready to increase my collection of modern semi-automatic firearms, optics and sound suppressors. Owning the night would be nice too.

    All things HK of course. ERA TAC for any new mounts. Anything fun from eastern Europe. Ukraine has had some interesting novelty stuff coming lately. Sureshot armament might be there. They have bad ass SVD accessories and AK accessories. My personal favorite would be Fortmeier but they are more for the civ market, not sure if they will be there.

      HK’s Mil/Leo Firearms and especially the new HK433 would be very interesting. Also Steyr’s STM556/Rheinmetall Steyr RS556, Tanfoglios TCMP, AR15, AR10 Line and they’r Full Auto Handguns, the C.G. Haenel CR223 is a very interesting HK416 clone with some special and unique features wich are worth a deeper look. The Question wich assault rifle will be submitted to the two assault rifle tenders of the German army by the exhibitting companys is very interesting too. Waffen Burk shows his very well made BR10 .308 short stroke gas piston AR10 derivat.

        Please take a lot of pictures and post them for the readers who would never get the chance see or get thei’r hands on these firearms. A lot of pictures, especially with close shots of details make a big difference between the different blogs and medias who report about the enforce tac.

  • Sebastian

    Have fun, I’ll be there too. Save a TFB patch for me, if I see you I gonna want one 😀

  • Alvar

    The new HK433, MG4, MG5. New german sniper rifle from Haenel RS9 / G29, Schmidt & Bender stuff, Spuhr, B&T, new Victrix rifles from BDT, Ritter & Stark SX-1, Steyr-Mannlicher RS556….. Man, wish i could be there. 🙂

  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    Really? “Class III firearms”? Come on, guys. You know that’s the wrong nomenclature. There’s no such thing as Class III firearms, only Class III dealers and Class II manufacturers.

    You’re talking about NFA or Title 2 firearms.

    • Scott Wagner

      What, you expect basic copy-editing from TFB?

    • ozzallos .

      This blog really shouldn’t be your first source for news in general.

    • Eric B

      Actually I don’t, I’m not from the US. Sorry so don’t know the exact nomenclature and I guess my local one wouldn’t make sense either.

  • HMSLion

    Anything black powder at IWA would be most welcome. Nuremburg often has a much better selection of items than the SHOT show…which has become AR/AK/Glock/1911…and not much else.

  • Adam D.
