Ruger LC Carbine In .45 ACP

The LC Carbine has been a hit for Ruger, and it’s certainly bound to garner more attention now it’s going fat and slow. That’s right, the handy little PCC is now available in .45 ACP. Whether for home defense or playing around at the range, the combination of the carbine and the time-tested cartridge is certain to prove potent. Plus, Ruger hasn’t messed with the winning formula earning the LC Carbine the reputation as stalwart and shootable. Some of the high points include a 16-inch threaded barrel, Dead-Blow blowback operation, AR-style folding stock and the ability to use Glock and Ruger magazines.
MSRP: $1,000

Hydra Weaponry Hydra 10

Hydra 10
Hydra Weaponry always seems to have something up its sleeve. Its latest ace is certain to grab the attention of folks who appreciate a full-powered rifle. Meet the Hydra 10, a robust AR-10 that brings plenty to the table. First and foremost, Hydra developed the .308 Winchester around the DPMS-pattern receiver, which in turn opened up the doors to more mods and upgrades. Not that it’s necessary, given the Hydra 10 is fairly well decked out—available in 16- and 18-inch barrel configurations, each with ample M-Lok real estate and BLK B5 furniture. The trigger is snappy, too. For those in the market for a deadly serious hunting option or a home-defense gun that can reach out and touch miscreants, the Hydra 10 is just the ticket.
MSRP: $3,000

Hornady RAPiD Safe AR Gunlocker

Sig Sauer Ranch Rifle

Sig Sauer has gone country. The MCX Regulator is a modern ranch-style rifle with some interesting twists. Available in 5.56 NATO or 7.62x39mm, it’s part of the MCX Spear LT family, featuring a gas-operated piston system. Departing from traditional AR-pattern firearms, it opts for a modified lower receiver compatible with traditional buttstocks. This design facilitates accessibility in restrictive states. Backward compatible with other Sig Sauer MCX upper receiver groups, it maintains versatility. Equipped with a two-stage match trigger, cold hammer-forged barrel, and Sig muzzle brake, it offers precision and reliability. The MCX Regulator includes a built-in Arca Rail and ships with a 10-round magazine. Oh yeah, it’s California legal.
MSRP: Starting at $3,000

Zenith ZF-56

Departing from traditional HK-style designs, it integrates AR-like upper and lower receivers, enabling compatibility with AR stocks and folding designs. Equipped with an M-Lok handguard and optics rail, it balances versatility and customization. Featuring HK-like safety and AR-style magazine release, it offers familiarity and ease of use. With a HK-like charging handle and minimal recoil, it promises ergonomic handling and accuracy.

S&W’s almost iconic .22 carbine is now offered bundled with Magpul MBUS folding rear sight and B5 Systems furniture. Although not new, the M&P15-22 remains a top choice for those seeking an AR-15-style .22 LR rifle. Crafted to emulate the AR-15’s look and feel, it boasts interchangeable parts with standard AR-15s, ensuring seamless handling and training. The B5 Systems Bravo Stock and P-Grip 23 enhance ergonomics and versatility, favored by AR-15 enthusiasts. Offering reduced recoil and lower ammo costs, the M&P15-22 B5 Edition delivers a premium shooting experience with modern enhancements.
MSRP: $500

Bilson Arms BA-15FC Series

Bilson Arms unveils the BA-15FC series, a forward-charging AR-style rifle showcased at SHOT 2024. Cleverly, the charging handle is moved forward onto the forend and operates as a pump-slide on the semi-auto. The advantage here is the carbine is more intuitive and quicker on reloads, freeing up the dominant hand to only worry about magazines. Building on last year’s 9mm model, this year’s lineup expands to include versatile cartridge options: 5.56 NATO, 6mm ARC, .300 Blackout and .450 Bushmaster. Crafted from billet aluminum, Mil-spec and customizable Cerakote coatings, these are slick shooters.
MSRP: Starting at $1,750
