Calling Back to the Hi-Power: Springfield Armory’s SA-35

The Springfield Armory SA-35’s official description leads with the line, Don’t call it a classic. Okay, that’s fair — it’s a new gun. But the design is damn sure classic, which at a minimum makes the SA-35 either an homage or a pastiche, or both. 

However you define it, it’s a call back to the Browning Hi-Power, which entered Belgian service in the 30s as the Browning P-35. 

The SA-35 is another Springfield take on an older design. In this case, the result is a modernized version of the venerable Hi-Power that takes a 15-round magazine.

SA says, 

It’s had many names in its century-old history and today, we reimagine this renowned design for modern use. Based on one of the most prolific and popular pistols in small arms history, the Springfield Armory SA-35 gives today’s shooters a modern take on a revered design. Featuring subtle but significant upgrades to John Moses Browning’s original P-35, the 9mm SA-35 captures the appeal of the “wood and steel” era of arms making while offering the upgraded enhancements of today’s defensive pistols.

Made in the U.S.A., the SA-35 features rugged forged steel parts for strength and durability, improved ergonomics and enhanced controls, modern sights, improved feed ramp design, and an increased 15-round capacity. The factory-tuned trigger benefits greatly from the removal of the magazine disconnect found in the original P-35 design allowing for a smooth pull and crisp, clean break.

Call it a legend, call it an icon, but whatever you do, don’t call it a classic.

The Springfield Armory SA-35 modern Hi-Power...in a nice, somewhat film-noir setting of sorts.
The Springfield Armory SA-35 modern Hi-Power…in a nice, somewhat film-noir setting of sorts. The typewriter is a nice touch, but I may be biased.

Okay, whatever. You say legend, he says classic, I say, Let me shoot this thing, cuz I do love me some Browning Hi-Power. 

Now, because The Mag Life is the official online publication of GunMag Warehouse (oooh, we fancy), I should point this out:

Mossberg Announces Their New 590S Pump-Action Line

Today, Mossberg introduced their new 590S Pump-Action Shotgun Series. They say these are “capable of cycling 1.75, 2.75 and 3-inch shotshells interchangeably, in any combination, without the use of an adaptor. 

The 590S Series includes two full-length stock options and two versions of the bird’s head-gripped Shockwave. (Photo courtesy of Mossberg)

 

Based upon Mossberg’s legendary 500 pump-action platform, 590 tactical guns include non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up and anti-jam elevator; dual extractors; drilled and tapped receivers; and universally-recognized, ambidextrous top-mounted safety. Enhancing the decades-proven 500 platform is a convenient clean-out magazine tube with cap for ease of maintenance. Additional features of the 590S series include black synthetic stock and forend; cylinder bore barrel (AccuChokeTM barrel on the 20-inch version); matte blue metal finish; sling swivel studs; and logo-engraved receiver on all models.

Key design changes of the 590S include a redesigned elevator and bolt slide combined with the addition of an energy-absorbing bumper. This patent-pending innovative platform allows the user to load their choice of shotshell length (1.75, 2.75 and 3-inch) and shotshell type for their specific shooting needs, and in any combination. Use of shorter shell lengths will also increase the overall capacity of the 590S.

590S Pump-Action Shotguns (51603/51602) – Available in two configurations, the 590S with 18.5-inch barrel features a front bead sight and corncob forend, while the 20-inch version has an adjustable Ghost Ring sight, AccuChoke-compatible barrel and versatile M-LOK compatible forend. MSRP: $605 – $708

590S Shockwave Pump-Actions (51601/51600) – The compact bird’s head-gripped Shockwave versions come with a choice of 14.375 or 18.5-inch barrel lengths; front bead sight; and strapped, corncob-style forend for ease of control. MSRP: $605

Mossberg Expands Their Pistol Line with the New MC2sc

Mossberg announced today they now have a new MC2sc optics-ready, double-stack, micro-compact 9mm.

More about the MC2sc.

With its double-stack magazines, the compact-profile MC2sc offers increased capacity but is comfortably sized for concealed carry with an overall length of 6.25 inches, height of 4.30 inches and slim 1.10-inch width. The MC2sc also features an optics-ready slide for ease of mounting micro red-dot sights. Available in two frame variants (standard and cross-bolt safety) and with optional TRUGLO Tritium ProTM Night sights, each MC2sc comes equipped with both an 11-round flush and 14-round extended magazines.

Constructed of glass-reinforced polymer, MC2sc frames feature high tensile strength and stiffness combined with impact and chemical resistance. The slides are 416 stainless steel and feature a black DLC (Diamond-Like Coating). For positive manipulation, the slides have angled front and rear serrations and integrated into the slide is a removable plate which allows for direct mounting of optics (Shield RSMC footprint). And unlike competitive products, the user is not required to pull the trigger to disassemble the MC2sc for routine cleaning or maintenance with Mossberg’s revolutionary STSTM (Safe Takedown System).

This easy-to-carry micro-compact features a 3.4-inch stainless steel barrel with cut-broached rifling; 1:16 twist rate; and black DLC finish. The ergonomic grip is angled at 18 degrees, naturally points like a 1911; has an added palm swell; and features Mossberg’s signature aggressive texturing for a positive, comfortable grip. MC2sc pistols have a reversible magazine release and, on select models, a reversible cross-bolt safety. Other standard features include dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights (drift adjustable); oversized trigger guard; and flat-profile trigger with integrated blade safety. Trigger features include short, tactile reset; reduced overtravel; and approximate 5.5-pound trigger pull weight.

The flat-profile MC2sc trigger (approx. 5.5 lbs pull) has an integrated blade safety, a short, tactile reset and reduced overtravel. It features a crisp, clean break and smooth take-up. All MC2sc models have a reversible magazine release behind the trigger guard. A manual cross-bolt safety (shown with red indicator, above) is available as an option. (Photo courtesy of Mossberg)

The MC2sc flush 11-round and an extended 14-round double-stack magazines are constructed of coated steel, which offer low friction and superior wear-resistance. The magazines also feature easy-to-remove floorplates for ease of cleaning and high-visibility followers.

For Auto Emergencies: HEDR Vehicle Trauma Kit

The HEDR vehicle trauma kit from Dark Angel Medical has been around a while now, but they’ve apparently upgraded. They wanted it more secure for off-road driving, back-country travel, and assorted Mad Maxian adventures. This is what we know about the HEDR 2.0 vehicle IFAK. 

HEDR Vehicle Trauma Kit

Dark Angel Medical is happy to announce they’ve upgraded the original HEDR  (Headrest Emergency Deployment Rig) Trauma Kit. The updated HEDR 2.0 trauma kits are now better designed to withstand the shock of offroading and backroad travel.

“Mountains are not fair or unfair, they are just dangerous.”

Reinhold Messner

The NHTSA and CDC advise 2 million + people are injured every year in a vehicle accident. Thousands more are killed (34,000 in 2017 and 36,000 in 2019 for instance).

This makes traffic-related fatalities the third most common non-related cause of death in the United States.

animated gif of headrest medical kit being deployed

Knowing the numbers, why wouldn’t you have something in your vehicle to deal with a medical emergency? Why avoid life’s adventures just because they’re riskier than staying home?

We road-tested the HEDR in the mountains of our Colorado HQ and decided it was time for an upgrade. There’s a new retention strap to keep it securely mounted to the headrest. Additional straps inside the kit to keep individual contents firmly in place and accessible if an emergency interrupts your day  – saving you precious seconds if you need to access them.

HEDR headrest IFAK for vehicles

The HEDR is available in Black, Coyote Tan, or Wolf Grey.

Here’s what the full HEDR 2.0 kit contains:

  1 x Hemostatic Gauze (QuikClot Bleeding Control Dressing or ChitoGauze)

  1 x Pair Nitrile Gloves

  1 x Mini Compression Bandage

  1 x HALO Seals

  1 x Compressed Gauze

  1 x Eye Shield, Polycarbonate

  1 x Mylar Blanket

  1 x NPA

  1 x CAT or SOFTT-W TQ with room for 2 more tourniquets

  1 x Full Size Shears 

Dark Angel HEDR vehicle med kit

Using a Christensen Arms Scout Rifle as a truck gun.

 

ALSO. Should you decide that you need one of these, Christensen Arms suggests the following steps to properly break in your barrel.

 

Ridgeline Scout Barrel Break-In 

Proper barrel break-in will smooth the bore of your barrel to create better consistency and accuracy. With today’s demand for accuracy, most high-quality barrel makers lap their barrels to remove minor tooling marks and create as uniform a finish as possible. This is generally done when the barrel is at the “blank” stage before the barrel has been contoured, crowned, and chambered. While this lapping technique provides great results, the post-lapping machining during the chambering process adds additional tooling marks. However it is possible to lap the barrel after the chambering process, it is very difficult and can damage the throat or create uneven gas venting behind the bullet which can lead to poor accuracy. Live fire barrel break-in can minimize these potential problems and is much more fun!

Proper barrel break-in consists of a series of shooting and cleaning sequences. Although many different break-in sequences exist, the following has been developed over the last 15 years, and is very simple, and has given excellent results.

First, make sure that the barrel is clean and free of any oil or solvents from the manufacturing process. Once clear, fire 2 three-shot groups.

With the bore guide inserted, run a solvent-soaked patch through the barrel, breach to muzzle, removing it at the muzzle. Repeat this with a new soaked patch 3 times or until no black is showing on the patch. Then scrub the barrel back and forth using the caliber-correct nylon brush soaked with solvent. Ensure the brush completely exits the muzzle and chamber before reversing direction. Repeat 20 times for a total of 40 passes through the barrel. Follow this step with a dry patch until it comes out clean and dry.

Next, using the undersized brush, run a solvent-soaked patch through the barrel, scrubbing back and forth for a total of 20 passes through the barrel. Again, ensure the patch exits both ends of the barrel before reversing direction. You will notice a blue tint on the patches from dissolving copper residue. Repeat until no blue/copper residue is found. Follow with dry patches until they come out clean and dry

Fire another 2 three-round groups for a total of 6 rounds.

Repeat steps 1-4 until you have fired a total of 50 rounds. 50 rounds are usually sufficient to smooth out the surface of the barrel lining and “break-in” your barrel. As your barrel breaks in, you will notice that it will clean faster and without using as many cleaning patches or solvents.

SilencerCo Adds Hybrid 46M to Their Product Line

SilencerCo recently announced the addition of their Hybrid 46M rifle suppressor to their line of products. They say it’s the world’s first modular large-bore suppressor.

Photo courtesy of SilencerCo. The new Hybrid 46M.

Here’s what they had to say:

It is the natural evolution of the original large bore suppressor, SilencerCo’s Hybrid 46, with the added benefit of being modular, giving shooters the option of using it in either a short or long configuration. The Hybrid 46M and all other SilencerCo products are available at SilencerCo Retailers.

Effectively reducing the sound signature of everything from 9mm to 10mm and 5.56 NATO to .458 SOCOM, the Hybrid 46M takes it to the next level for those who want the versatility of the Hybrid 46 with added modularity. It is compatible with virtually every centerfire firearm platform due to its wide range of available attachment accessories.

The Hybrid 46M is the perfect tool for shooters hoping to suppress a variety of calibers on both pistols and rifles with only one suppressor,” said Dewie Vieira, SilencerCo’s Senior Product Development Specialist. “It’s the first modular big bore suppressor ever; it’s the answer for those who want to suppress every small and large bore caliber.”

The real beauty of the Hybrid 46M, however, is that it allows the shooter to remove the front module, providing a shorter and lighter option that is especially useful on handguns. While SilencerCo’s Omega 36M is still the best modular option for .30 caliber pistols, the Hybrid 46M gives shooters the ability to suppress big bore pistol calibers like 45 Auto and 10MM.

Product Overview

The Hybrid 46M is a light, compact, modular centerfire rifle suppressor, with the versatility to use on magnum rifles, pistols, and subguns. Both configurations are full-auto rated.

The Hybrid 46M is rated for all centerfire pistol and rifle calibers including 45 Auto, 10MM, .450 Bushmaster, .458 SOCOM, .45-70, .338 LM and up to .460 Weatherby Magnum.

AICS PMAG: the PMAG 10 5.56 AC for Bolt Guns

The PMAG 10 5.56 AC (as in AICS style) magazine has been presented by Magpul Industries as a solution to feeding small cartridge case diameters in rifles with AICS-pattern metal mags. Such calibers in that style of magazine can be problematic. 

We have a handy video that explains. It’s hosted by the spring-fed mag cousin of the TVA’s Miss Minutes and should answer any of your basic questions. 

 

 

PMAG 10 AC 5.56

 

Magpul explains the difficulties in more detail thusly:

“The problem with designing a detachable mag for 223 Remington in 5.56 x 45 bolt action rifles with AICS pattern bottom metal is that with small cartridge case diameters and standard bold faces, there is not a lot of room to get the geometry right.

In a conventional magazine design, this can lead to bolt over stoppages, overall length sensitivities, follow or dive, and a generally less than great experience than when feeding larger cartridges.

Magpul’s PMAG 10 5.56 AC solves this little dilemma with a polymer magazine designed for short action AICS pattern bottom metal in cartridges built on a .378 case head, and an overall length of 2.39 in. We based our solution on an offset feed lip geometry that maximizes bolt face engagement and resists follow or dive, guaranteeing reliable feeding in solving pesky bolt face overlap issues.

The PMAG 10 5.56 AC shares many features with its larger siblings in the PMAG line, with the same DNA that makes our GEN M3 PMAG  the most reliable, and most durable magazines in the world…with a unique form factor so you won’t easily mix them up with your other AICS pattern mags.

Compatible with all short action AICS pattern bottom metal, including our own bolt action magwells for the hunter family of stocks. The PMAG 10 5.56 AC sets a new standard for bolt action standard technology.”

PMAG 10 5.56 AC – AICS Short Action

This is the formal description provided by Richard Fitzpatrick‘s crew.

The PMAG 10 5.56 AC is a polymer 5.56×45 NATO (.223 Remington) magazine designed for short action Accuracy International Chassis Systems (AICS) pattern bottom metal, including the Bolt Action Magazine Well for the Magpul Hunter family of stocks. 

Designed with many of the same qualities that make our PMAGS the most reliable and durable in the world, the PMAG 10 5.56 AC features GEN M3 technology, including a self-lubricating follower, a stainless-steel spring, and constant-curve internal geometry for smooth feeding. It also incorporates offset feed lip geometry that maximizes bolt face engagement, guaranteeing reliable feeding and solving the bolt face issue common to other AICS-pattern magazines for 5.56 based cartridges.

Like our other Magpul bolt action magazines, it features a paint-pen dot matrix for visual identification and a flared base plate for positive control and ease of retrieval. Designed from the ground up to solve the challenges of feeding 5.56/.223, the PMAG 10 5.56 AC sets the standard for bolt action magazine technology.

Made in the USA.
