A Big Year for SIG: Modular Rifles, Pistols and More

The new year is starting to sound like it will be a really big one for SIG Sauer.  While few official announcements have been made by the company, reliable information tells us the company is introducing both a new modular rifle platform and a modular pistol platform in 2014.  Of course, this does not include other upgrades and options being added to existing lines of products.

Let’s take a look at some of the guns we are expecting to see at the SHOT Show in January.

New Ruger Guns for 2014

Ruger American All Weather

Ruger announced a number of new gun models including a new DA/SA version of the LCR called the LCRx.  One deviation from prior Ruger product announcements is that some of the guns are not ready to ship immediately.  In the past, when Ruger announced a new firearm, the gun was already in production.  Some of these new guns, however, come with an expected ship date.

Here is a quick run down of the guns…

New Gun Rumors – What Will We See at the SHOT Show?

2009 SHOT Show SIG556

[Editor’s Note: Click here for the SHOT Show 2020 coverage.]

T-Minus four weeks and counting. The 2014 SHOT Show is nearly here, and we are starting to hear about some of the new products that will be on display in Vegas.  Here is a list of new guns that are rumored to be coming in January.

Full Size Diamondback Pistol – I spoke with an employee of Diamondback a little over a year ago.  At that time, they had a prototype of a full size, striker fired handgun that was nearing production.  Shortly thereafter, the crazy buying frenzy hit and we did not see the gun introduced at the SHOT Show.

Various New Guns and Gear

As we get close to the end of 2013, manufacturers are starting to announce new products.  Also, with the SHOT Show being so close, a lot of rumors are starting to really heat up.  So, here are a few of the new guns and other gear we know (or suspect) are rolling out…

FN SCAR-P

Over at Soldier Systems, they posted a photo from the Milipol 2013 expo in France showing the new SCAR-P from FN Herstal.  The weapon appears to be configured as a PDW and is chambered in .223 Rem/5.56 NATO.  I’m hoping the FN team brings this one with them to the SHOT Show.

New Guns and Gear for 2014

Federal Fresh Fire

Here are some of the new product introductions for late 2013, early 2014.  I expect to see all of these at the SHOT Show, if not before.

Federal Fresh Fire .22 LR Ammo

Federal Ammunition is now offering Fresh Fire packs of .22 LR ammo.  These round cans of rimfire ammo are nitrogen-sealed and designed for protecting the ammo from the effects of time and corrosion.  Right now the only ammo available is a 36 grain copper-platted hollow point, but I could see this expanding into other loads and calibers.
