    “LWRC has a new 6.8 mag, in polymer, that requires the use of a new upper and lower receiver.”

    This is huge. If we can finally start abolishing the broken-by-design AR mag it will be a major leap forward in AR reliability.

    Makes me wonder if existing uppers can be easily modified (such as for the AR47 lower, that takes AK mags) to fit it.

    Have you been over to PCP’s table yet? They have some of that polymer ammo sitting around saying it solved all its problems.

  3. What about the ADCOR B.E.A.R? I want one in 7.62!

    I think the Kimber Solo pocket 9mm has an aluminum frame and is not all steel. From their web site, “Solo frames are machined from the finest aluminum and finished in KimPro II”.

    From the pictures I’ve seen, Vltor has no Bren Ten / Fortis pistols in their booth. Is this true? If so, not a good sign since they haven’t delivered any after missing several ship dates.

    And thanks for the coverage!
