Midwest Industries Announces Release of New Side Folding Extruded Stock
A Functional, Folding Upgrade to the Classic Triangular Stock


Waukesha, Wis. (October 8, 2021) — Midwest Industries announced today that it has released a new Side Folding Extruded Stock for rifles with Picatinny rails.
The Side Folding Extruded Stock from Midwest Industries takes design cues from traditional AK-47 triangular stocks, adding on modern features and functions for enhanced usability.

The compact folding action simplifies storage and transportation.

• Heavy-duty side-folding mechanism constructed from 4140 heat-treated steel

Nightstick is proud to announce its two newest weapon-mounted lights for handguns – the TWM-30 and TWM-30F. Both sporting 1,200-lumen beams and capable of illuminating objects nearly 200 meters away, the TWM-30 and TWM-30F are set to provide the industry with a weapon-mounted lighting solution that is 30% brighter and runs 11% cooler than Nightstick’s previous iterations of their pistol mounted weapon lights.

Visualizing Ammo Cost Trends Across Nine Popular Calibers

Ammo Cost Trends

It’s no secret that the ammunition market has been volatile (to say the least) since the Covid pandemic took hold, but some calibers seem to be easing off while others rise. Redditor, Chainwaxologist, owns a web-based hunting and fishing retail store, FoundryOutdoors.com, so to keep his ammo cost and supply competitive, he set out to track the ammo cost trends of the most popular calibers. Chainwaxologist used his findings to create a handy graph to show these trends in a friendly one-stop format to help us visualize the data. Chainwaxologist’s observations can be read below.

I’m back again with more ammo pricing data. I own an online hunting retail business (FoundryOutdoors.com) so I write down the ammo pricing numbers every few days on Ammoseek since ammo makes up a big part of our business. Needless to say, it’s been a painful year for our ammo sales with limited inventory available.
Since the previous update in June 2021, we saw a big drop across the board in Cost Per Round prices from June through August, only to see a return to higher levels in the beginning of September, presumably due to increased demand from hunting season.
Several calibers saw 25%+ CPR price increases in August alone, specifically 308 Win and 7.62x39mm. Other calibers such as 380 Auto, 9mm, and 22LR saw more muted increases, likely due to the fact that manufacturers have prioritized the production of those calibers during the pandemic, leading to increased supply; the fact that these calibers are not typically used for hunting has likely helped keep demand levels steady as well.
Between the beginning of September and now, we saw price decreases of 5-20% across the board, which means in most cases the CPR is still higher than the lowest prices we saw in July/August by 5-10%.
I have also spoken with several of the largest national ammo distributors who, unfortunately, agree on an outlook of limited ammo inventory and elevated prices well into 2022. The data presented here aligns with that outlook, but perhaps with a glimmer of hope since prices are currently trending downward once again.
Ammo Cost Trends since 2020
I’d like to thank Chainwaxologist for his diligence in documenting our plight and for giving us permission to share his photo and his observations! One reader asked about his inclusion of steel cased ammo, to which Chainwaxologist replied that he was strictly taking the top (cheapest) listing per caliber on AmmoSeek.com, which would include steel casings in factoring the ammo cost trends, but still gives us a general, overall picture of the whole situation.
You can view the original Reddit thread HERE, or view his raw data HERE. Click on the photo above for a larger version, or go to the Reddit link and click on the thread’s image to enlarge it. You can also check out Chainwaxologist’s site at FoundryOutdoors.com to see the products he offers.
I was surprised to see 7.62×39 actually trending downward since the recent ban on Russian produced ammunition. Is there anything in the ammo cost trends graph that surprised you?

NEW Competition Red Dot: The CRD From Atibal Sights

CRD

When it comes to pistol competition, divisions that allow optics are where all of the action is. However, not long ago, the optics and guns they went on made it nearly impossible to afford to get into the sport. As lower-priced, higher-quality pistols have found their way onto the shelves, the same has happened with red dots. Offering a new value-priced, full-featured option, Atibal Sights has just introduced the CRD, or Competition Red Dot.

The Atibal CRD 3 MOA / 6 MOA competition red dot sight is designed to streamline pistol competition and 3 gun shooting. The large viewport of the CRD will provide ample sight picture clarity during one or two eyes open operation. The lightweight design of the CRD ensures the optic will not impede the function of the user or the platform and the RMR footprint compatibility enables the Atibal CRD to fit a wide array of slide cuts and mounting plates from a large variety of manufacturers.
The Competition Red Dot CRD From Atibal Sights
CRD

The Atibal Sights Competition Red Dot comes with either a 3 MOA or 6 MOA dot. It uses the Trijicon RMR footprint, making it compatible with many existing slide cuts. The dot boasts a 40,000-hour battery life from one bottom-loaded CR2032 battery. This is aided by the 4-hour auto-shutoff feature. The CRD has 10 brightness settings and each click of adjustment has a 1 MOA value.
CRD

SPECS
  • Dot size: 3 or 6 MOA
  • Length: 45mm
  • Viewport width: 28mm
  • Viewport Height: 20mm
  • Weight: 1.06 oz
  • MSRP: $249.99

If you like what you see and would like to run one in your next competition, head to Atibal’s website. If you want to see announcements for more products like this, follow Atibal sights on social media. You can find them on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Good luck in your next comp!

BREAKING NEWS: SIG Sauer Will Not Attend SHOT Show 2022!
BREAKING NEWS: SIG Sauer Will Not Attend SHOT Show 2022

BREAKING NEWS: SIG Sauer Will Not Attend SHOT Show 2022
SIG Sauer will not be exhibiting at SHOT Show 2022 taking place in Las Vegas this coming January. The absence of SIG, normally one of the show’s largest booths, is almost certain to create ripples throughout the industry. After last year’s cancellation, many manufacturers donated money to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the organizer of the decades-old convention. As of now, the event is scheduled to start on January 18th with exhibition halls in both the Venetian Expo and Caesar’s Forum.
SIG Sauer SHOT Show 2022 Announcement
SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to be an ardent supporter of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and leads the industry in support of the organization and its’ mission to promote, protect, and preserve the hunting and shooting sports.
Each January, NSSF hosts SHOT Show – the industry’s premier tradeshow. As a strong supporter of NSSF, and an industry leading manufacturer, SIG has maintained a very large presence at SHOT Show and we continually grow our support for the organization, and our show presence, year after year. However, after thoughtful consideration, deliberation and a review of current circumstances, SIG SAUER has made the decision to not exhibit at the upcoming 2022 SHOT Show and will alternatively be making a $500,000 donation to NSSF to support both its mission and ongoing critical support of our industry.
For over 30 years SIG SAUER has attended SHOT Show, and we did not come to this decision without much thoughtful deliberation. Our number one priority throughout the pandemic has been, and will remain, our employees. SIG SAUER has an extremely large presence at SHOT Show sending over 140 employees to the show and our pre-show Range Day event. Maintaining this presence, or even a scaled back minimum presence for 2022, represents a significanthealth risk to all 2,600 of our employees across our 13 U.S. locations, as individuals attending the show return to our facilities and risk continued exposure to our entire employee base.
Additionally, based on the circumstances as they are known to us today, it is incumbent upon us to review this decision from a financial perspective. For the first time in many years, the SHOT Show space was redrafted, necessitating the need for a complete booth re-configuration and design. Out of pocket expenses from this point forward will be well over $1 million and based on the uncertainty of large scale shows and events, this expense is not financially prudent.
In closing, SIG SAUER would like to once again note the important and essential work of the NSSF on behalf of our industry and reiterate our support for the organization and its mission.
