Just a heads up for my gun loving readership, there’s a new series of pistols coming to market this year. I’m friends with one of the managers there, but I didn’t think I could say anything about their new gun yet.
But here is the press release: http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/01/13/new-firearms-company-nite-owl-firearms/
So I can probably talk about them now. 🙂
This is their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/niteowlfirearms
MSRP is in the same range as most of the other striker fired poly pistols. There’s no MIM, no forgings, all the metal parts are machined. The entire gun is made in the US.
All they’ve got up right now are the 3D renders, but I know they’ve been shooting the hell out of the prototypes and the first production guns should be out pretty soon. The company has been around for a long time, but doing machining for military contracts.
I don’t know if I can say who my friend is there, but he’s been in the gun industry forever, knows everybody, and knows his stuff. He’s told me about what they’re working on, and it is pretty damned cool.
I’ve asked for one of the first ones, so I’ll let you guys know how it runs.
