SHOT 2014 — Kel-Tec’s New Bullpups the M43 and RDB

Kel-Tec unveiled prototypes of the M43 and RDB at SHOT Show 2014. They both operate on an adjustable short-stroke gas piston system and are chambered for 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington. Both bullpups have a longer bolt travel than you are more likely used to, but this helps with controlling full-auto versions. Three of the awesome features that jump out at me of both the M43 and RDB are the downward ejection, fully interchangeable parts between the bullpups and 100 percent ambidextrous controls. Both feature a 17.5-inch barrel with a ½x28 thread ready for a muzzle brake or suppressor.

SHOT 2014 — Beretta ARX-100 Sporting Rifle

The ARX-100 is piston driven, rather than direct impingement for long lasting durability and low maintenance in harsh environments.

SHOT 2014 — Kahr CT 40 and CT 45

Now as the market is saturated with affordable and even cheap, small defensive handguns, Kahr Arms has introduced two new full-sized pistols that it hopes will grab a portion of the market share. The “aggressively-priced” CT 40 and CT 45 are double-action only, striker-fired polymer pistols that operate from a locked breech with a Browning-style recoil lug. The barrel on both is 4 inches long with a 1-16 right hand twist and the single-stack magazine holds 7 rounds. Each gun is shipped with only one magazine. The CT 40 is chambered for .40 S&W and the CT .45 for .45 ACP.
