The Legacy Sports International booth at the SHOT Show is shaping up to be a good place to spend some time this year. Â They have announced the importation of a number of great looking guns recently. Â Here is a run down of a few of the firearms we will see at the SHOT Show.
Legacy announced they are now the exclusive importer of ISSC firearms into the United States. Â This includes the M22 pistol and MK22 carbine, both chambered for the .22 LR. Â The M22 pistol looks like a Glock, but according to Legacy Sports, it is much more similar to the Walther P22 as both the M22 and the P22 were designed by the same man.
The MK22 is a FN SCAR look-alike with a folding stock, quad-rails, etc. Â Having shot the SCAR, I look forward to handling the MK22 to see if the feel is similar. Â As much as I like the FN, it is way outside of my price range for what it does. Â However, the MK22 might be fun to cart out to the range.
Citadel M-1 Carbines in .22 LR
In late October, Legacy Sports officially announced the arrival of the M-1 Carbine clone chambered for the .22 LR cartridge. Â These guns are made by Chiappa in Italy.
The Citadel M-1 rifles are blowback designs that duplicate the externalÂ dimensionsÂ and look of the original M-1 Carbine. Â The guns will ship with ten round magazines.
There are two versions of the Citadel M-1: Â one with a black synthetic stock and one with a traditional wood stock. Â Very affordable, the Citadel M-1 has a MSRP of $349 for the synthetic stock model and $399 for the wood stock version according to their website. Â However, a recent press release put the MSRP at $301 and $383 respectively. Â Price drops are always nice.
Legacy recently sent out press releases on the Escort Extreme Turkey and the Escort Extreme Waterfowl shotguns. Â These scatterguns are semi-automatic that claim to reliably cycle all loads “…from 2.75 inch range loads through 3.5 inch heavy magnums.” Â There was a time I would call BS on that claim, but technology advances and semi-auto shotguns are much more capable than they once were.
I didn’t realize Howa was on board with the zombie craze. Â Regardless, you can grab one of these t-shirts (Medium – XXX-Large) for only $15 with free shipping and no extra costs for the jumbo sizes. Â Ash would be pleased.
