Whether you’re on the hunt for a new truck and field gun, home defense, match-winning accuracy, the ultimate hunting rifle, a foldable shotgun or a Jason Bourne-worthy micro machine gun you strap onto your arm ... the best gunsmiths in the world are debuting hundreds of great new firearms options at SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
There are literally acres of firearms showcased and worthy of consideration, but here’s a peek at some of the most exciting guns for different purposes – and budgets - that will hit your local shelves throughout this year.
“Shock n Saw,” “Max Long Range Hunter” and “Copperhead.” Have those new gun names sparked your curiosity? They should.
Here are first looks at 7 new guns for 2019 that are already igniting buzz from industry insiders. Take a look at these new weapons from Sig Sauer, Browning, Mossberg, Remington, Savage, Daniel Defense.
SIG SAUER COPPERHEAD
Sig Sauer continues to CRUSH. This titan in gunsmithing arrives in Vegas has gone from strength to strength to strength slaying with their innovation and craftsmanship.
SHOT 2019 is no exception to their meteoric trajectory. Even before the event kicked off, the buzz on their Copperhead was big. Once revealed, the excitement surrounding this latest standout from them spread like wildfire throughout the community.
The MPX series has already been extremely popular with tactical and shooting professionals– and for good reason. The 9mm Copperhead is the latest – and the smallest so far – of the MPX pistol-caliber family.
Copperhead is a four-and-a-half pounder with a 3.5-inch barrel and an overall length of 14.5 inches.
The gun incorporates the powerful MPX’s same short-stroke, gas-piston operating system as its bigger brother.
This may be pistol-caliber, but it most certainly delivers a high impact message.
This is the sort of weapon you’d see in a Jason Bourne-type film where Bourne doesn’t have a pistol next to the bed for home defense against assassins– but this hard-hitting micro machine gun that attaches to the shooter’s forearm.
That’s right, this is hardcore firepower that a shooter can mount on their arm…very Bourne-ish. SIG Sauer's new Pivoting Contour Brace provides a flexible stabilizing platform and supports the shooter’s arm movement.
The design is sleek looking and finished in Cerakote E190. The monolithic upper receiver has solid rail space for accessories.
Good news for lefties and tactical professionals who might have to resort to using the left hand if a work day gets sporty and puts the right hand out of commission - magazines release, charging handle and safety are all bilateral.
Available in 2019 for $1,835.
