O Coonan, Where Art Thou?

O Coonan, Where Art Thou?

Randomly while cleaning out some random stuff around the office we stumbled upon a Coonan flash drive from Shot Show circa 2015. My first thought was to throw it into the garbage can but it did remind me.... Did Coonan manage to resurrect itself or if it was still a smoldering trash heap, promising to return (and hopefully also return all the money they stole from customers in in the form of pre-orders for guns and repairs sent in and never repaired or returned).

Sig's new P320 AXG Pro Full Size is Shipping

Sig Sauer has been expanding the P320 line with new AXG variants and Custom Works P320 pistols (Custom Works models have limited ordering periods and limited quantities) and recently announced the P320 AXG Pro Full Size. The AXG models differ from standard models in that they use an aluminum alloy grip module versus the polymer grips used on non AXG models.

The AXG Pro Full Size model features a custom lightened slide (window cuts on the front of the slide) and the slide is cut for an optic. This model supports Sig Sauer's Romeo1 Pro, Romeo2 and Leupold Delta Point Pro. It also has a separate dovetail for the rear sight so that you retain the sight when installing an optic.

ATF is coming for Pistol Braces

ATF is coming for Pistol Braces

It should be no surprise that the ATF has pistol braces in their sights. In December they released a proposal for regulation and then retracted that once public comments were received. One of the problems with the prior proposal is that there were no specific criteria for determining what is a pistol with brace and what is a rifle with pistol brace redefined as a stock.

They've got a new worksheet with a point system to verify what is and what is not a brace. If enacted it will likely eliminate most pistol braces and braced firearms. There was a mention back in December of waiving the NFA tax when registering the pistols as SBR's. That's out the window too now.

You can read the full proposal at: https://www.atf.gov/file/154871/download

Sig P365 XLRX

Military Times posted this week about a new Sig P365 XL variant called the XLRX. We assumed Sig would release an XL with Romeo1 preinstalled and it looks like it is coming in the near future.

The P365 XL has the optics cut but for anyone that doesn't yet own the XL (but wants an optic) the pre-configured package will likely be cheaper.
