Savage® Arms continues to offer a broad lineup of suppressor-ready rifles for shooters and hunters who want to reduce firearm noise at the range or in the field. Savage expands its line of suppressor-ready rimfire firearms with three new rifles: Model 93 FV-SR in 22 WMR, Model 93R17 FV-SR in 17 HMR, and Model 64 FV-SR in 22 LR. These new models give hunters and plinkers accurate rifle platforms ready to accept after-market suppressors with ease.

The popularity of suppressors continues its rapid climb as more shooters and hunters see the benefit of reducing firearm noise at the range or in the field. For years, Savage® Arms has been serving these shooters by offering several firearms with threaded muzzles that easily accommodate aftermarket suppressors. For 2014, Savage expands this lineup with three new suppressor-ready rifles that deliver quality and accuracy, yet are priced to deliver value.

The bolt-action Model 93 FV-SR chambered in 22 WMR and Model 93R17 FV-SR chambered in 17 HMR weigh 5.5 pounds. Other specifications include overall length of 35.25 inches, and barrel length of 16.5 inches. Each are equipped with a heavy, fluted barrel which improves accuracy and dissipates heat quickly, an easy-to-use oversized bolt handle, and a 5-round detachable magazine, as well as Savage Arm’s legendary, user-adjustable AccuTrigger™. The 93R17 FV-SR has a rate of twist of 1-in-9 inches, and the 93 FV-SR has 1-in-16 inches.

The semi-automatic Model 64 FV-SR chambered in 22 Long Rifle weighs 5 pounds. Other specifications include a rate of twist of 1-in-16 inches, overall length of 36 inches, and barrel length of 16.5 inches. It is equipped with a 10-round detachable magazine.

All three rifles feature a ½-inch, 28-pitch threaded muzzle with a twist-off thread protector; buttoned-rifled, carbon steel barrel; one-piece optic/accessory rail; checkered synthetic stock and black matte finish.

Plus, the company now offers many laser sight models in both red and green lasers. These items have helped Americans defend themselves, their families, their homes- and our nation. Many Crimson Trace products are also used by military soldiers and law enforcement officers around the globe.

Stag Arms Tactical Watch

Made to Stag Arms exacting specifications we teamed with Reactor Watch to create a watch designed to be durable and rugged enough for tactical situations and good looking enough so it can be worn every day. The watch includes a low profile black band, bezel, and watch face. The numbers on the watch face and the hands include Never-Dark technology similar to tritium sights which allows them to be seen even in the darkest conditions. The watch is extremely comfortable but built rugged with a solid forged case, solid screwbars for the band, a screw down crown, and tested to a depth of 660 feet.

The weight comes in at a minuscule 95 grams yet the watch boasts a large watch face, a case diameter of 42mm, a thickness of 14mm, and runs off a 10 year lithium power cell. The watch is in a tactical black color to reduce reflectivity and it being seen. Unlike a metal band that can cause noise, this band is created to be silent and stealthy using a combination of high grade woven nylon and rubber. The Stag Arms logo can be found on the watch face and the numbers surrounding the bezel are in the dark Stag Arms green color.
The watches are $350.00 and are available at www.stagarms.com or by calling our sales office at 860-229-9994 x1

FAIRFAX, Va. Shooting Sports USA Managing Editor Chip Lohman has collaborated on a book that takes a contentious debate-private gun ownership in America, and moves it into the classroom. He also may have created a modern-day Trojan Horse as a marketing plan.

According to Lohman, the motivation for the project was to offset misquotes and negative press about the shooting sports, firearms and the NRA with a small, fact-filled resource that is short and to the point on topics missed by mainstream media. The illustrated book takes the reader on a virtual tour of the NRA including the Competitive Shooting Division, Education and Training Division. Law Enforcement’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe ® Program and the National Firearm Museum. Heavily documented are facts about the effect of Hollywood on the public’s perception of firearms, the high level of safety attributed to the shooting sports, the most current numbers of gun owners versus crimes committed with a firearm, clarification of existing laws and misused terms, as well as a brief overview of NRA’s contributions to land conservation, firearms safety, education and sports over the last 143 years.

As for the Trojan Horse: ” We often turn to our friends for the best advice. The idea of this little $8 book is to use that to advantage, and to ask shooting sports enthusiasts to pass the book along for others to read, especially those who may be on the fence about firearms” said Lohman.
From Dr. Judy Tant, Clinical Psychiatrist and National Bullseye Pistol Champion: “From a multifaceted man (Marine, teacher, sailor and editor) comes this many-sided little book that sparkles with bits of information about the NRA’s history and current mission. No polemics, just useful nuggets of data that the public would be unlikely to encounter otherwise. This book will not change the minds of dedicated anti-gunners, but it could make a difference in the hands of people who want to get the story right, but are too busy to do the research themselves.”

Just released on August 20, the book is initially being offered through Amazon.com. Says Lohman: “For every book sold, I can give two away.”
