    That is how I manipulate the 92FS safety. I guess I didnít realize that so many people struggle with it. I always found it very intuitive. While I was in the Marine Corps I only noticed one problem...

    I personally preferred the G variety of the 92 because I find a safety with A decocker to be a bit like having a belt and suspenders. The bigger issue is accidentally activating the safety when...

    Medium size hands here. The beretta safety is plenty easy to swipe off while acquiring a grip. Never understood the criticism.

    A good example of the above was the Remington MK21 MSR 338 Lapua adopted by SOCOM. The contract was worth millions but in reality it is IQID meaning that the stated value is the maximum should the...

    The FCU does allow people in some organizations more freedom with a dremel and soldering iron. Not to mention membership into the pistol grip of the month club. I am personally well served by a Gen 5...

    So I just messed with the compact. It is great, except that it still has that pronounced thumb ridge near the trigger guard that diggs into the middle finger of my firing hand. Hopefully Iíll get a...

    I have heard that Bubitz wasnít involved with design while at Glock but used his employment at the company to leverage better positions at Steyr etc.

    So say that there is nothing wrong with the P320 mechanically, is it time to start looking at the human interface? Maybe a striker fired gun with a trigger pull approaching a 1911 isnít a good idea...

    So things we know:

    Modularity is defined as being able to use any slide length on any frame like Glock G5 guns. No chassis. Walther plans to sell frames and slides separately. All sizes use the...

    Looks like an Acro sits low enough to co-witness with the factory sights.



    I did get to spend quiet a bit of time with a steel frame but always wished it would have had a longer grip. Now...

    There will not be another Walther with a paddle release. This statement came directly from the chief engineer at Ulm a couple years ago. The sales number do not support it.

    This appears to be a refresh of the PPQ. Looks like there are a bunch of small well thought out changes for serious shooters. They moved the back up sight off the sight plate onto the slide. They...

    Companies have to find ways to compete on price and it seems that modern striker guns are all about price. Hell, the quintessential cheap duty gun, the Glock, lost the Army bid because they were...

    No such thing as a pre-Umarex P99. Umarex bought Walther in 1993 and one of the first things they did was bring on new engineers and task them with making a modern polymer gun. The P99 was the result...

    Walther PDP New Duty pistol.

    67648

    Looks like the upcoming launch on the 19th has leaked a few days early. This is the extent of my knowledge.

    Full-size grip looks long. 19rd mags?

    It sucks but it is understandable given the difficulty of getting enough pistols out the door at the moment. Sounds like it is just a temporary pause and things should get back to normal eventually.

    There was talk of a next generation pistol when they replaced their CEO in 2018. Maybe it is ready. Depends when work started I guess.

    How many Aimpoint engineers does it take to figure out how to mount a Micro to a Scalarworks mount?
