[SHOT 2022] New Releases From Winchester Ammunition

Winchester Ammunition had several new varieties available at Shot Show 2022 Industry Range Day. The USA Ready Defense 9mm +P 124-grain load was present in quantity.

[SHOT 2019] POF-USA's new rifles

Don’t you step on POF’s blue suede rifle.  Well, it’s not really suede, but their new “Wonder” rifle has a lot of neat features, not least of which is a “Blue Titanium” colored upper and lower receiver.  The Wonder’s standout features are the new “Strike Eagle charging handle, named for the eagle head semblance of the ambidextrous latches, the 3.5lb flat single stage trigger, and the new Micro B single port muzzle brake.  According to POF, the new brake, though very compact, is nearly as effective in recoil reduction as their triple port brake.  The Wonder is 6.18lbs, and comes in at $1599.  The wonder also has a 14.5” rail covering its match grade nitrided and heat treated barrel.  The gas system is carbine length.

[SHOT 2019] SCCY's new CPX-3 .380 Pistol

SCCY, known for manufacturing American made, very affordable firearms, brought their new CPX-3 to SHOT 2019.  Like the other CPX’s this one is chambered in .380, with a 1:16 twist barrel.  The CPX-3 does, of course, have a few new features.  Most prevalent is the use of the “Roebuck Quad-lock system”, a method of obtaining accuracy by having the barrel supported by four points of contact (two front and two rear) at all times.  The rear sight is adjustable via a locking screw, while previous models had fixed sights.  The sights retain the same 3-dot arrangement however.  The CPX-3 does not have a manual safety.  Unloaded weight is 15oz, and it comes with 3 magazines (older CPXs had 2) and has a capacity of 10+1.

[SHOT 2019] NEW "MK1 PRO" Rifle and Pistol line From PWS

From the land of gems and potatoes come the new PWS MK1 PRO line.  Unvieled to us at SHOT 2019, the PRO MK111 Pistol and PRO MK116 rifle still have the long-stroke piston and excellent features that PWS is known for, but differ in a key area:  They cost 1/2 the price of the MK1 MOD2 line!  This is achievable because the upper receivers are not forged and machined, but rather 6061 extrusions.  Another difference is the PRO line comes with standard A2 flashers instead of the fancier compensators found on other PWS firearms.  MSRP for complete guns is $995.95, and uppers are also available for $649.95.
