Silencers, Stocks And Rifles – More Everything From Q

Last night I had the unique opportunity to hang out with some heavy hitters in the firearm industry at a Instagram Live event hosted by my friends at Q. On hand to discuss new product releases and take questions from a Live and virtual audience were Colion Noir, Adam Kraut, Mike Aland, Noveske Rifle Works and of course the complete Q team. The Portsmouth, NH based firearms company is set to release another volley of rifles, silencers an gear in the coming months.

The Fix By Q: No, you can’t have one in blue. (I asked).

First up is a pistol caliber version of the Erector silencer. With 10 length combinations and the possibility to be optimized for either 9mm or 45ACP, the latest modular can from Q is about as adaptable as legally possible. Other specifications and details are TBD at the moment, but if all goes well, look for a release right around the time of the 2018 SHOT Show.

If you aren’t already aware, Brittingham and Company already have a .22LR Erector available to consumers.


The current Erector by Q – A Modular rimfire silencer is with 10 possible configurations.

Moving on, fans of the Honey Badger PDW/Carbine have been requesting a stand alone stock option for standard AR15 lower recievers. Pictured here is an early prototype mated to a Noveske lower. Again, the details aren’t set in stone at this point, but look for availability in the coming months.

Although prototypes weren’t available for fondling, they will be releasing 5.56mm and 300BLK versions of their popular bolt action rifle ‘The Fix’. Could this be my first 300 Blackout rifle? Yes, yes it could.

Q – Development phases of the ‘The Fix’ currently available.

Also discussed was the ‘California Compliant‘ version of the Honey Badger; sadly, no additional details to be shared at the moment. Not to worry though, The Firearm Blog will keep you up to speed as information becomes available.

    Ok, fine… That intermediate action “fix”, the first second I can, I’ll buy that.

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Yeah. It might be my first 300blk rifles.

      • I wunder

        A bolt gun though? I guess I don’t see the utility of 300 blk outside semi auto. If you’re talkin a bolt gun for a can, 308 or 30-06 with 200-240 grain handloaded subs seems a like a more universally useful rifle. Also, there are already a number of 300 blk bolt guns available. Why wait for this one when it will likely cost more and be no more effective than the current 300blk bolt offerings?

        • Pete – TFB Writer

          You have a good point about subsonic 308.

          But all the features of The Fix make it stand out from anything else on the market. Super light, the trigger is amazing, the action is incredibly smooth, folding stock without needing an expensive aftermarket chassis…

          • RetroG

            No offense intended, but it isn’t super light for a bolt action, the trigger weight is good, but not amazing from the limited reviews I’ve seen, and it has way too much proprietary in it (including the stock) for all the AR parts it uses.

            There are definitely some cool features and R&D that went into it, but I don’t know if there is $3k worth in it, at least for me.

          • Pete – TFB Writer

            None taken. It won’t be for everyone. But it’s a gun you really have to hold to appreciate.

    • Shankbone

      Holyyyyyyyyyyy! It’s a seal of approval from Jumplf! Now that is something you don’t see everyday.

      • Pete – TFB Writer

        Right? Thought the same thing.

    • iksnilol

      I hate to admit it, but I’m tempted by its light weight.

      I will have to ask though, what bolt lift angle and magazines?

      • Mack

        45 degree bolt throw

        SR25 magazines

        • iksnilol




          Isn’t that hella small? I mean, the standard is 90 degrees.

          • Mack

            Shortest that i know of with out going to straight pull.

            Second on the list would be the CADEX CDX-R7 with 50 degree.

          • iksnilol

            Yeah, but the Cadex has cringy names like “sheepdog” and “shepherd” so we’re going for the fix.

            JUST MAKE IT IN 6.5X55! I presume the 5.56 version is gonna use AR mags?

  • Gary Kirk

    “The Erector.. Ribbed for pleasure”

    Sorry, couldn’t help myself.. Could be a selling point though, doubles as a marital aid device.. He’ll, just might make the significant other “enjoy” silencers as much as you..

  • Hoova_crip

    I tol da boyz dat i red bout oil filters on hur an dat dey wurk on al glock fotys evn r hipont brand glock fotys. It finna b lit fam. I lern so much frm tfb.

    • Anonymoose

      Maglites, tho, homie.

  • Same old song

    Sadly, us southpaws don’t get to play with the #thefix. When will(if they will) release a left handed version?

    • randomswede

      When it’s economically viable?

      • Samuel Millwright

        Aka never

    • AJ

      Kevin, the owner of the company, is Left-Handed and has no interest in making a left-handed rifle.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        Being left handed, doesn’t mean someone has to shoot wrong. I’ll never understand left handed guns, ambi sure, but left handed snowflake guns, no. Train out of it.

        • BillC

          It’s like making a car for the US market that has the manual shifter on the left side.

          • Samuel Millwright

            No it’s not actually…

            If you’re left eye dominant and left handed you can still drive a car with a right handed gear shift lever just fine because it’s literally NOWHERE CLOSE TO THE SAME THING as trying to shoot a righty rifle right handed with your right eye engaging the sights!

            Frankly, you’re an idiot for even thinking something that stupid

          • JumpIf NotZero

            You know every right hand drive manual ever made has the shifter for the left hand right?

            In England, South Africa, Indonesia they are perfectly happy shifting with their left hand 🙂

            They trained into it.

        • iksnilol

          Maybe because shooting wrong handed is hella slower (IE using a right handed bolt action with your left). Maybe people should also “train out of” writing with their left hand?

          I know you’re our resident mall ninja, but I didn’t expect this from you.

        • Samuel Millwright

          1. It’s not shooting wrong handed.

          2. If it was shooting wrong handed God would make nothing but cover you can fire from right handed. / and or you wouldn’t have a whole other hand/arm/eye combination designed to work exactly like the “right” one.

          3. I’m right handed but s have 20/20+ vision in my left eye and 20/50-20/90 vision in my right depending on the day… How would you propose i “train out of” that?

          4. The brunton bump is a thing as is just running a damn righty bolt gun left handed!

          Put all that together and the idea of “training people out of” shooting lefty is remarkably stupid.

          What we SHOULD be doing is training more people to be ambi proficient especially for combat shooting, and insisting that gun companies build guns that don’t pummel your face hole with brass just because you switched hands!

      • Samuel Millwright

        I am a lefty too and i totally don’t blame him for that!

  • EzGoingKev

    What grips are on the Ruger MKIII?

  • ShootCommEverywhere

    They’re still planning The Fix in .300 WSM, right? That would open the door to rebarreling it in a varety of the short action magnum calibers. And what about a long/extra long action Fix?

  • K Sleezy

    Don’t really give a shyte about these products, but damn does he really have a Q-Tang Shirt… Very Solid. Very Very Solid…

  • noob

    PLOT TWIST: It turns out that to make a cali compliant honey badger the secret is you need to have a dummy 0 rounds magazine and the weapon automatically breaks open on trigger release so you can load another round. #unpossible

  • Benjamin Goldstein

    Thats a nice looking bolt action.
