Q&A: SHOT Show Edition

10 months ago

I probably should have thought to post this earlier, but here goes anyway. I'll be at SHOT Show this coming week; what questions you would like me to put to companies there? Please specify a company with your question; my plan is to only ask one or maybe two questions to any given company.

Trapezoidal magazines, why did they fall out of favor? Double-feed trapezoidal magazines seem to have a list of benefits from ease of loading to lower cost of manufacture (especially when compared to mags with complex geometries such as the MP5's). Low spring tension doesn't seem to be a problem out of Swedish K magazine when used in a S&W 76, which I assumed was due to less friction. The only fault I can think of is the added width, which is felt in the chunky grip of the CZ Sa.24/26 series. Do you have any insight into why manufacturers like CZ chose a curved magazine for the Evo scorpion instead of a trapezoidal?

I don’t know if this is the right thread, but it’s the only one I see. Anyway, my question is, why aren’t there many (if any) PCC’s in larger calibers, such as magnum rounds or .50 AE? In a platform like a pistol I could see it being too much, but in something more similar to a rifle, it would be much more controllable and could have great potential at close range or for self defense. Additionally, considering there are AR15 platforms chambered for .50 Beowulf, why aren’t there any for .50 AE, to be a smaller and more compact counterpart? I feel that it could be a middle ground that many people would appreciate, so they could have something with more punch without being too heavy or slow to maneuver.

I know this is an old thread, but I didn't see any other Q&A threads, so I'll post my question here. My question is, why haven't we really seen many people explore the combination of the operating systems of an AR-15 and AR-18? Meaning a direct impingement gas system with some sort of captured buffer system inside the upper receiver. I feel like this would give the benefits of d.i. guns (lighter, less recoiling mass) while also being able to have a real folding stock (that you can shoot while folded).

North American Arms: Would they consider making a larger version of their break top revolver in .32 ACP?

If JJE Holdings/PSA/H&R/Nodak are there, ask them literally anything about what their plan is. Retro ARs, Garands, whatever.
