Serious Stopping Ammunition from G2 Research
G2 Research announces a new subsonic .300 AAC Blackout-caliber round for hunting or tactical use. The new G2 Research 300 Ripout Round produces a massive wound channel that ensures hunters of an accurate, sure and swift kill. This new subsonic (suppressor-friendly), premium-grade, 200-grain .30 caliber round quickly expands at reduced velocities, creating a devastating, energy-depositing wound channel of one inch or more. Bullet weight retention is an astounding 98 to 100 percent, which creates more than 17 inches of soft tissue penetration. Free from the massively overdone hydrostatic shock prevalent in so many of today’s ultra-high-velocity loads, the sub-sonic G2 Research 300 Ripout Round will kill ‘em quick and quietly without turning good game meat into useless jelly. Individually manufactured in highly specialized CNC machines, each expensive-to-make bullet is precision machined to open up within the first two to three inches of impact, resulting in a controlled expansion of three large copper petals called tridents that make up the first half of the bullet. (A .30 caliber bullet, for example, will expand between 1 and 1.5 inches while the bullet shank remains attached for controlled penetration even at subsonic velocity.) The new Ripout round has a velocity of 1,020 feet per second and has a retail price of $54.99 for a 20 round box. You can get more information at www.G2Rammo.com.
IWI US Brings Back the Legendary Jericho Pistol
IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., proudly announce the return of the Jericho brand of pistols to the U.S. market. The Jericho 941, designed specifically for the U.S. market, will be available in both steel frame and polymer frame models. Since it was originally designed based upon the highly regarded CZ-75 model, the Jericho has been imported into the U.S. under several names including Jericho 941 from KBI when first introduced, UZI Eagle from Mossberg and Magnum Research’s Baby Eagle. IWI US is pleased that the Jericho 941 has come full circle and arrived home. The Jericho 941 steel frame, semi-auto, short-recoil model will be available in full-size and semi-compact in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP caliber. The pistol features adjustable sights, an integral Mil-Std 1913 rail, an ergonomic grooved pistol grip and ships with 2 magazines in a lockable carry case. The Jericho 941 polymer frame with steel slide, semi-auto, short recoil model is also available in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP calibers in a full-size and semi-compact frame. All features are the same in the polymer version with the benefit of reduced weight. Unlike the Baby Eagle, UZI Eagle and earlier versions of the Jericho 941 imported by KBI that had a slide mounted de-cocker system, this new Jericho 941 utilizes the more desirable frame mounted safety, a la CZ75.
Jericho 941 pistols are used by civilians and elite forces around the world including the Israeli police. IWI US will also carry CO, CT, DC, HI, IL, MD, NJ and NY compliant pistols with 10-round magazines (no models available for CA and MA). For more information contact them at www.iwi.us.

New Tripod Shooting System from Ashbury Precision Ordnance
Ashbury Precision Ordnance (APO) Manufacturing introduces the new RSTA-II Tripod Shooting System for Rifle Sports focusing on long range hunting, practical/tactical rifle competition, and professional marksmen. The RSTA-II Tripod Shooting System allows long gun users to shoot from a variety of alternate shooting positions while standing, kneeling or sitting whether on flat ground, rock strewn, steep mountainous or complex urban terrain. The 1.1 pound RSTA-II Tripod Head allows users to position long guns using the Rapid Control Handle (RCH), which can be set up for either right or left hand control. This versatile tripod head provides a positive locking ±35 degree head that can securely hold a 25+lb long gun using a 6 o’clock accessory rail grabber, Pig Saddle or APO AnyPoint Bipod/Tripod Mount. RSTA-II Tripod Shooting Systems offer users a maximum shooting height of approximately 68 inches and collapses to approximately 29 inches using Quick Power Lock leg latches. The standard duty RSTA-II Tripod Shooting System uses the stable, yet lightweight Manfrotto 190XPROB alloy tripod base that is suggested for long guns up to 15lbs. This tripod base uses 3-section legs that collapse into a highly portable field shooting platform at only 5.5 lbs. The extreme duty version of the RSTA-II uses the Manfrotto 055XPROB, a heavy duty tripod base with larger diameter 3-section tripod legs weighing 6.6 lbs. that flexes less under heavier loads of up to 20 or more pounds. The RSTA-II allows shooters to track, lock and when ready accurately engage distant targets without fatigue. In rugged field testing for more than 18 months RSTA-II Tripod Shooting Systems were live fire tested with a wide range of rifles including the M107 .50BMG. Long-gun shooters can interchangeably mount semiautomatic carbines, shotguns, and a wide range of hunting and tactical rifles on RSTA-II Shooting Tripod platforms. Variable power spotting scopes are also easily mounted on the RSTA-II platform using the common 1/4×20 detachable baseplate, or clamped snugly inside the Pig Saddle. One tripod system, many uses.
