Savage Arms New Minimalist Rifles

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – June 4, 2020 – From the diminutive power of the Rascals, to the potential offered by the new Precision Series, Savage Arms knows rimfire. Now Savage is redefining rimfire style with Minimalist—a distinctly different stock design for the Mark II, 93 and 93R17 rifles.

is pleased to introduce Minimalist, a distinctly different take on the classic rimfire design. Minimalist combines a laminate stock for lightweight strength with several additional features for excellent usability in the field. With its button rifled barrel and user-adjustable AccuTrigger, the bolt-action Minimalist delivers Savage accuracy. Minimalist rifles are offered in 22 LR, 22 WMR, and 17 HMR.

“Minimalist takes Savage rimfire in a new direction,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage. “The laminated stocks are ideal for older youth and adult shooters, yet the rifle weighs only 5.68 pounds. If you’re looking for a new option for plinking or hunting small game, Minimalist delivers.”

Above Minimalist’s carbon steel action, a Weaver-style base is pre-installed. Make the most of cost-effective rimfire rounds by topping these bolt-actions with a scope or red-dot and the rifle will be ready for the range.

Blackhawk New T-Series L2C Holster for SIG P320 TLR 7/8

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – June 4, 2020 – Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military products for over 20 years, announced today that it has expanded its popular line of T-Series holsters with the introduction of a light bearing Level 2 Compact (L2C) version engineered specifically for the SIG SAUER P320 pistol with TLR 7/8 light.

As with other L2C holsters, the latest model retains key features designed to assist with concealed carry. Among these features include a new speed cut to assist with a faster draw, a low-profile design for ease of concealment and RMR-compatibility.

Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm. This efficient movement pairs with a sound-dampening, low-friction, dual-density internal material that translates into a smooth, quiet draw. Externally, the L2C holster features a proprietary, glass-reinforced nylon to ensure the highest degree of durability available in a duty rated holster.

All T-Series L2C holsters include an all-new attachment platform called the Quick Dual Release, or QDR. This attachment method features an intuitive dual button release that allows for easy attachment to and removal from a belt without weaving it through traditional belt loops. The QDR can easily accommodate belts ranging in size from 1.5 to 2.25 inches and allows the holster to be canted at various angles, depending on user preference.

All L2C holsters also come standard with a two-slot belt loop attachment for belt carry and the intuitive design provides the user the ability to cant the sidearm following the body’s contour.

For more information on the new L2C holster for the SIG SAUER P320 with TLR 7/8 light or to view the complete line of T-Series holsters be sure to visit www.blackhawk.com.

Lantac LA-SF15TM 6MM ARC Rifle & E-BCG

Lantac is pleased to announce the release of its range of 6MM ARC chambered rifles and dedicated E-BCG®

For the past 2 years Lantac has been working closely with Hornady Manufacturing, undertaking testing and development of products that utilise the new 6MM ARC ammunition in a variety of bullet weights. Lantac was one of the first companies to become involved with this new caliber as part of a funded military research project and has conducted extensive evaluation and development work in that time.

Lantac’s new LA-SF15 6ARC 18’’ Rifle+1 gas system (pictured) delivers 2629 FPS at muzzle with 2457FPS at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 1408 FPS at 800M (874.89 Yards). Energy is 1657 Ft-lb (2246 Joules) at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 475 Ft-lb (644 Joules) at 800M (874.89 Yards) approx. Lantac has also developed a more compact 14.5’’ Intermediate gassed system that delivers 2483 FPS at muzzle with 2315 FPS at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 1302 FPS at 800M (874.89 Yards). Energy is 1285 Ft-lb (1742 Joules) at 100M (109.36 Yards) and 407 Ft-lb (551 Joules) at 800M (874.89 Yards) approx.

The velocity of multiple barrel lengths was tested to create a clear picture of 6ARC’s capabilities.

The Lantac LA-SF15™ 18’’ configuration comes as standard with the following specifications:

7075-T6 Alloy Forged Receiver Set, Hardcoat Anodized (Type3, Class2) to MIL-A-8625 standards.

SPADA-ML 15’’ Handguard

Proof research 18’’ Rifle+1 Carbon Fiber Barrel with 1:7.5 Twist and Target Crown.

The rifle is designed to offer the softest shooting experience and features a specially designed dedicated E-BCG® bolt carrier group that works with the Rifle+1 gas system and VLTOR’s A5 Buffer to deliver extremely low recoil energy, meaning that fast, repeated hits on long range targets are much easier to achieve.

Other barrel options are available for customers not wanting to use a carbon wrapped solution.

Lantac’s 6ARC E-BCG® has been specially developed to manage the gas impulse delivered from a variety of 6ARC bullet weights / powder loads that will eventually be available from Hornady (the 103Gr, 105Gr & 108Gr being the initial release), it will also function with 6.5 Grendel and is available in both Nitrided and NiB (Electroless Nickel Boron) finishes.

Lantacs E-BCG® has undergone extensive trials testing and out performs other carriers with improved gas management, reduced recoil and lug stress. A 5.56mm E-BCG® Carrier and Bolt have successfully fired over 65,000 rounds of ammunition with zero failures and the Bolt was still in complete working order after MPI and X-Ray Radiography inspection.

The E=BCG® Carrier vents gas in a completely different way to standard two and three port designs. As can be seen in these frames from hi-speed testing, both the 2 port and 3 port carriers produce a plume of potentially harmful propellant gas, by contrast the Lantac E-BCG® produces a significantly reduced plume.

Rifles are available to order now, prices vary depending on specification, please contact Lantac USA for further information.
