6.8 Western, Magpul MP5 Drum, CZ Buying Colt?! – TGC News!

This week on TGC News, Magpul drops a mountain of new stuff, a new long range cartridge from Winchester and tons of gundustry news!

Welcome back to another episode of TGC News, the only gun news show that covers things you actually care about, my name is Jon Patton.
Before we get into things, I want to make you guys aware that not only is the big bore barrett giveaway still going on but we are also now uploading our videos to Warrior Poet Society Network! With the age of censorship growing, we have decided to partner with a really strong group over there. Link in the description plus a discount code if you want to join up.
Now, how about some gun news? Winchester has a bunch of new stuff and they finally announced the specs on the 6.8 Western Cartridge and it looks pretty rad. We covered the addition of the cartridge to SAAMI not too long ago and now its actually here. On the surface its a 6.8 diameter projectile being fired out of a short action length cartridge, similar in length to a 6.5 creemoor, and claiming good terminal performance for long range hunting AND precision for match situations. At launch there are 3 offerings. A 165 grain Accubond LR meant for extended range hunting, then you have the silvertip version using a 170 grain expanding bullet and then the 170 grain match bullet using a boat tail hollowpoint. In the promo video, they brag about the cartridge having more energy at 500 yards than 6.5 creedmoor and that is likely due to a heavier bullet. They also brag about less recoil than a 300 win mag, which is hilarious because thats like saying 223 has less recoil than 308. Comparing them doesn’t make sense. I get that they are trying to sell to hunters but that comparison is weak if you ask me. As we always say with these new cartridges, it doesnt really matter if no one is chambering guns for it and off the bat it seems that Browning, who partnered with Winchester for this launch has 21 different models of the X Bolt chambered for this new cartridge. I’m skeptical of it taking off in a big way until we see a bunch of other manufacturers getting behind it but time will tell I suppose. Winchester also announced a few other things but since their product release video was a half an hour long and the website is like a labyrinth to navigate and find good info, I’m gonna skip it.
I’m curious though, what do you guys think about this new 6.8 Western. Is it something that gets your excited? Were you looking for something like this or are the current offerings enough to handle your needs? Sound off in the comments below and lets talk about it.

Its time to fire up the mini gun becuase we have a ton more news to cover this week.
Also new from browning this week is a semi auto shotgun called the Maxus II. Being that its the sequel to the Maxus, it has a bit of upgrades. The upgrades include a new cheek pad, a new recoil pad, rubber overmolding for more grip where you need it, a ramped trigger guard, enhanced controls, presumably to make the gun easier to use in colder/wetter conditions and the best one of all… a screw on magazine cap. Yes they list that as a feature. Thats on top of their proven gas system, nickel teflon action coating and really nice trigger. The gun comes in 5 different variants all basically cosmetically different. The prices range from 1529 for the blacked out version up to 2 grand for the wicked wing model.
Moving on from there FN has a new version of the 509 called the 509 LS Edge or Long Slide Edge. See also, Walther PPQ Q5 match and HK VP9 OR Long Slide. They’re essentially all the same gun made by different brands. 5 inch barrel, better trigger, in this case a flat face, better grip texture, better iron sights and of course, optic mounting. All in all it looks like a really solid gun and the 509 definitely doesn’t suck. The MSRP does sting a little at 1499.
Also in new stuff this week is ammo from Federal. I’ll keep it brief. The Syntech line has added a 148 grain 38 special, a 205 grain 10mm, and a 95 grain 380. I’m excited about more 10mm offerings for sure. They also added a couple new handgun rounds to their hunting line up. There is a 100 grain 327 federal and a 200 grain 10mm. Both are part of the Swift A frame line.
And rounding out our rapid fire this week is a mountain of stuff from magpul! We usually cover all of this stuff at our SHOT show booth visit but I guess we’ll cover it all from the studio this year. There is a lot so I will try to keep it simple. First is the new MBUS 3. These back up sights are a combination of the pro sights and the previous gen MBUS and are sort of a slim trim version with spring loaded deployment. Pricing is 40 for the front and 60 for the rear. Then there is the K2 XL grip, which is a 25 percent larger version of the K2. Count me in for that. With an MSRP of 24 bucks. From there we have the PRS lite which is a lightened version of the PRS gen 3 at a full 10 ounces lighter. The PRS stocks are great and I’m sure this won’t suck either. At an MSRP of 120 which is literally HALF the price of the full featured PRS gen 3, this could be a home run for a lot of people. Next we have the QR Rail Grabber which is a quick release with compatibility for both picatinny and ARCA/RRS rail systems. That goes for 80 bucks. Wow way more than I thought that would cost. Moving along they have 2 new PMAGs. One is a new 10 round version of the standard with the same form factor of the full 30 round version. Its all about keeping compatibility between local restrictions and mag pouches. They have an MSRP of 18 bucks. Theres also a new 20 round version of the 300 blackout mags that have an MSRP of 15 bucks. And before we get into the really juicy stuff, they have a new knife for 240 bucks which looks awesome and some new eyewear that I can’t use because prescription lenses. And they go for 100 to 150 depending on which version you get. Now the stuff I’ve been holding back on… First is the MP BSL arm brace for the HK94/MP5 platform. That is a nice addition to their current MP5 stuff and has an MSRP of 160 bucks putting it right in line with other braces. Then theres the new D50… not the one for the AR10 but the one for MP5s AND one for Glocks. FINALLY someone with a decent reputation making drum mags for these things. Honestly these are almost more exciting than the next product I’m gonna show you. They have an MSRP of 120. And honestly one of the most exciting things I’ve seen in a long time needs a bit of a back story. Back in 2008, at SHOT show, Magpul had a demo gun called the FMG9 which was essentially a deployable gun that folded up into a tight package and contained a glock machine gun that also folded up. Side note that folding action looks A LOT like the full conceal thing that is now bankrupt. In the video, Drake Clark says that they don’t have any plans to produce the gun but wanted to show it off. Fast forward 13 years and not only am I fortunate enough to call Drake and a bunch of other folks at Magpul buddies but they are also actually going to make what is now called the FDP9 and FDC9. The P and C indicate pistol and carbine versions of the gun. This is going to be done in partnership with Zevtech. Now theyve already said these wont be ready until 2022 but they wanted to tease everyone now. I am REALLY excited about this. I’m betting because of the nature of the gun plus being a hype beast, its going to cost a pretty penny when it does eventually hit the market but holy crap do I want to shoot one. WHEW, that was a buttload of new stuff. An entire buttload. I want to hear what you guys are excited about down in the comment section because we have so much to talk about!

But wait theres more! We also have some industry news we have to cover this week. First up, Sellmark, the parent company of Sightmark, firefield and Pulsar announced they are acquiring armor manufacturer Bulletsafe. Bulletsafe has been around since 2013 and has everything from soft armor vests to armored ball caps. I’m curious to see what they do with the brand.
Also in industry news, Aero Precision announced that they are relocating. Its only about 15 minutes away from their current Tacoma location but they are moving to Lakewood Washington to a new 268,000 square foot facility. I suspect we will see a lot of brands expanding over the coming months as the demand in the gun industry is still at an all time high.
In big time gundustry news, CZ is reportedly attempting to acquire one of the oldest gun makers in the US… Colt. We don’t have a ton of info about this one but the word is that they are planning a complete takeover of the brand. That my friends would be interesting in a ton of ways. What would happen with the military contracts? What would happen with the wheel guns? What about the other products? Lots of questions that won’t be answered right away. CZ puts out some incredible stuff so seeing them make Colt successful again would be awesome as well.
And rounding out industry news, the NRA has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy AND are planning to relocate from their current location in New York down to Texas. I think its clear to many of us that this was coming for a long time, especially considering the lawsuit in New York trying to dismantle the org but either way, that is something to pay attention to for the time being.
Guntuber of the Week continues this week. If you don’t know, GunTuber of the Week is a segment where I share a gun related channel that by our standards, which are admittedly really high, puts out high quality, entertaining, informative content on a regular basis.

OH MY GUNS – Dec. 2020 Background Check Numbers!

Honestly, I don’t know how anything is still in stock with the amount of guns and ammunition sold this year. It is absolutely staggering. The December NICS check numbers are in and we’re going to break it down after this.

The FBI has reported on background checks through the National Instant Check system since part way through November of 1998. Since then, we’ve seen some pretty big milestones. In November of 1999, there were more than 1 million background checks in a single month. The first time we broke 2 million was 13 years after that in November of 2012, which at the time was a really big deal. 2013 was considered a big year for the gun industry and there were just over 21 million background checks that year. That was the first year of Obama’s second presidential term. The first time we ever surpassed 3 million background checks in a single month…that was 2020. It seems that 2020 was not just the year that the pandemic changed the world, but it was also the strongest year ever for the gun industry.
Every month we’ve been covering exactly what that means and how many checks have gone through and this time is no different. The December 2020 background check numbers are in and I am very excited to share them with you.
Now for context, these are not a direct comparison to actual guns sold. Background checks are not a 1 to 1 ratio, some checks could be for multiple guns and not ever state requires a background check at the time of purchase. That being said, let’s get into the data.
A recap is the way we’ll kick it off. I also need to add that every single month this year has set a record. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Starting off in January we had 2.7 million checks. February was 2.8 million. March was a BIG time spike due to Covid taking hold on the world and we had 3.7 million checks. Tapering back down to 2.9 in April, then just under 3.1 million in May. June was astonishingly high with 3.9 million, July at 3.6, August at 3.1, September 2.8, October came in at 3.3 million as the second wave of covid started and so did HEAVY campaigning for the presidential election. November ramped up to 3.6 million and December 2020 was the one that polished off the year with 3 million 937 thousand and 66 background checks. That puts it about 6 thousand higher than June 2020 and makes it the highest month ever recorded in US history AND it also crushed the 2019 number by a hair over 1 million. These numbers are absolutely staggering.
We’ve not done this before but I want to bring you through the yearly totals as well because I think it provides some really interesting context as to just how crazy this year has been.
The data we have from FBI starts part way through November of 98 and ends the year with just under 900 checks. Being that its a partial year, that particular data isn’t substantial for our purposes. Moving on from there, the year of the Columbine shooting, 1999, I was in 9th grade at the time. That year ended with 9.1 million. Considering we did almost 4 million in December 2020, that number seems kinda small right? It gets more interesting. 2000 landed at 8.5 million, 01 was 8.9, 02 was 8.4, 03 was 8.5, 04 was the sunset of the assault weapons ban and ended up with 8.7 million and this is where the numbers start climbing substantially. 05 was 8.9, we broke 10 million for the first time in 2006, 07 was 11.1 million, 08 was 12.7, 09 was the first year of Obama first term and things started to climb even more here with 14 million, 2010 was 14.4 million, 11 was 16.4, 2012 which was soaked in political craziness jumped to 19.6 million, 2013 we passed 20 million for the first time at 21.1 million, then 14 fell back to 21 million, 15 was 23.1, 16 was a big bump to 27.5 million, back down in 17 to 25.2, 18 was 26.1 million and 19 landed us at 28.3 million background checks. 2020 absolutely crushed all of those numbers. There were 39.7 million background checks performed in 2020. Nearly 40 million. That is 11.3 million more than 2019.
If you’ve seen these videos before you know the next step… we’re going to compare these background check numbers to populations. If we look at the December total of just shy of 4 million checks, we could arm HALF of New York City. We could arm EVERYONE in Los Angeles. We could almost arm everyone in Houston twice. We could arm everyone in Austin Texas 4 times over.
If we look at the yearly total of just shy of 40 million checks, we could arm every single person in Afghanistan… not sure if we would want to do that but we could…. We could also arm everyone in Romania twice and have guns left over. We could almost Arm everyone in Sweden 4 times. We could arm Liberia 8 times over and Slovenia 20 times over. And just for fun, we could almost arm every single person in my county here in PA with 80 guns each. THAT would be amazing haha.
No matter how you slice it, this year has been insane. The entire world economy brought to its knees, science pushed to do things that were never thought possible and governments around the world grabbing up more power than ever before. And no matter how you look at it 40 million background checks makes a statement as well.
I want to know what you guys think of this. In the comment section below, tell me what the number one reason people bought guns this year. I want to hear your thoughts for sure.

Savage Impulse, Rarebreed FRT15, KelTec P50 – TGC News!

This week on TGC News, savage brings out a straight pull bolt action, a new trigger that is sure to piss off the ATF and lots more!

Welcome back to another episode of TGC News, the only gun news show that covers things you actually care about, my name is Jon Patton.
Before we get into things, I want to remind you guys that the The Big Bore Barrett Giveaway is well underway! I am giving away a Barrett M82A1 but I can’t say too much here because I don’t want big tech to delete this video so go to the link in the description or head over to our website, theguncollective.com to find out more!
Now, how about some gun news? First up this week is a new one from Savage. Its called the Impulse and its a bit different that any savage bolt action ever made. The Impulse is an ambidextrous straight pull bolt action rifle with some really interesting features. First, the bolt handle can be swapped to be on either side even though ejection is always on the right. The bolt also has what they are calling hexlock technology which uses a ball bearing system to lock the bolt into place when a round is in the chamber. On a traditional bolt action, the rotation of the handle is actually locking the gun, obviously this doesnt have that option. They claim that higher pressures also make the gun lock up tighter. Beyond that, there is a quick release button on the back side of the bolt that allows you to cycle the gun without taking the safety off. That’s a rad one for hunters that want to clear the gun in a safe manner. The bolt being removable also means that if you take the handle out completely, the gun is locked up. Kind of turns it into a key for the gun. Beyond that, the bolt handle accepts aftermarket knobs out of the box. The top of the receiver has a pic rail milled into it. And of course savages normal accustock and accutrigger. The gun will be shipping in 3 different models. The Impulse Big Game, which has a green cerakoted receiver and Kuiu camo on the stock, comes in 6 different calibers with a carbon steel fluted and threaded barrel, most of which are 22 inches long. That one has an MSRP of 1449. The Impulse Hog Hunter is a more simplified version with an OD green stock and black barreled action. It comes in 4 different calibers and barrel lengths ranging from 18 to 24 inches depending on caliber. THe barrel is also a heavy contour with a threaded muzzle. MSRP there is 1379. Then there is the Impulse Predator which has the black barreled action and a mossy oak camo pattern on the stock. That one comes in 4 calibers but they are all 20 inch medium contour barrels with threaded muzzles. The Predator also has a removable AICS pattern magazine. MSRP on that is 1379. The impulse definitely has a lot going for it. HOWEVER, I have a few things I want to point out. During the press conference for this gun I asked Savage if they had any plans for an AR mag version of the predator and they said they said that wasn’t something they really considered. To me that is a huge oversight, AR mags are probably the most plentiful here in the US, come in capacities of all kinds and are usually pretty affordable. AICS mags range from around 40 bucks all the way up to around 100 for the fancy metal ones. Maybe I’m missing something but that seems like an easy win to have an AR mag instead but I’m just a guy on the internet. Beyond that, the guns weigh in between 8.5 to 9 pounds. With the trend towards light weight guns in recent years, that strikes me as heavy by comparison. At the same time, when you compare this gun to other straight pull options it is priced way below the norm in that segment of the market. I am really eager to hear what you guys have to say about this one. It has some really neat features but do those features grab your attention enough to grab one for yourself? Sound off in the comments and lets talk about it!
Next up this week is a new trigger that promises to piss off the wet blankets at the ATF. Its called the FRT 15 or Forced Reset Trigger and its from a company called Rare Breed Triggers. I’ll try to explain this the best I can. Its a new take on triggers that no one has ever done before. The basic idea is that as the bolt is cycling rearward in its firing cycle, the hammer is pushed back and due to a unique shape of the actual trigger portion inside the trigger unit, the trigger is forced to reset, at the same time that is happening a locking bar in the rear pivots and prevents the gun from firing again until the cycle is complete and the bolt has gone forward again. As you can see, on the forward motion of the bolt, the locking bar is moved out of the way and the hammer moves into its final prefiring position. The cycle then restarts as long as the user has pressure on the trigger. They show in the promo video that this forced reset indicates that the trigger is being pulled by the user each time the gun cycles and therefore it is not a machine gun as per the current laws in the US. This is different than binary triggers because they fire on the pull movement and then again on the release. The MSRP on the trigger is 380 bucks and they are sold out currently and I know the wait list is deep. The action shots of this look pretty incredible. I do see this potentially being an issue though as they do not have a determination letter from ATF and are solely going off of the word of an attorney and what the law says. The problem is that we know from experience that ATF operates outside of the law. Case and point, bump stocks. We have a video right here on TGC showing with slow motion video that bump stocks are absolutely not machine guns per the law BUT they still got banned anyway. Now, thats not to say that this product isn’t awesome, because I absolutely want one. I just have some concerns on the products future. ESPECIALLY given the incoming administration. I’d love to hear what you guys think on this one as well.
How about a little rapid fire? I know you guys like the fast paced stuff. First up is one we briefly covered last week from Keltec. Yes they are a sponsor, no they did not pay for us to talk about this. This was sort of leaked before but now we have some better info. Its called the P50 and its a pistol that uses 50 round P90 mags. Yes 50 rounds of 5.7 ammo in a pistol. The barrel length comes in at 9.6 inches, The gun weighs in at 3.2 pounds and the way you load it is like a belt fed machine gun almost. Theres a lever on the rear and you lift up the top to insert the mag. MSRP lands at 995. THAT my friends is a cool gun. Especially if think about putting a can on it.
Gemtech has released a new suppressor and Its called the Integra 15-22. You guys are smart so you might have guessed it, its an integrally suppressed upper for the 15-22. Essentially theyve taken their MIST suppressor for 10/22s and made it work for the M&P. I fully support any and all rimfire cans and I’m sure this one will be a solid yet very specific choice. Mr guns and gear actually already has a review video posted on this so there will be a link down below to watch that. MSRP on that comes in at 616.
Also in rapid fire news is a new one from Heritage Manufacturing. Its called the Barkeep and long story short, its a short little single action only revolver. It comes chambered in 22 long rifle with an option for 22 mag. The barrel length is just over 2 and a half inches and the gun is overall pretty basic. You even need a rod to push out the spent casings. However, the price tag of 189 for the pearl grip version or 180 for the wood grip means that you’re getting what you might expect for the pricing. I have no idea why I want this gun but something about it screams fun to me. It could be a good option for starting someone out shooting on a budget.
Guntuber of the Week continues this week. If you don’t know, GunTuber of the Week is a segment where I share a gun related channel that by our standards, which are admittedly really high, puts out high quality, entertaining, informative content on a regular basis.
That being said, our GunTuber of the Week this time is Keystone Carry. Jared is a friend of TGC and another PA native who has a real talent for beautiful video productions. Not only that but his presentations are just clean as a whole Here’s a clip.
If you’re into that type of content, go find the link to his channel in the description and get subscribed. Be sure to tell him TGC sent you.
It’s time for more Friendly Fire, the segment where I answer questions from you guys! This time our questions are coming from YouTube!
Our first question is from Wayne Bates and he says how far do you honestly believe the new administration will push their gun control agenda? Simple answer, as far as they possibly can. They want everyone disarmed because of an irrational fear of an inanimate object. Strange things are coming our way. Scott Gansen says is steel cased ammo really that bad for your AR? No. I say this all the time, if it won’t eat steel, it doesn’t deserve brass. Most people out there will not shoot their gun enough to actually cause damage from steel cased ammo, with one exception… a gun built of total crap parts. Any decent rifle will be able to take thousands upon thousands of steel cased rounds. Samuel Johnson says do you think big tech is the new thought police and are red flags going to start rolling in? Yes I absolutely think they have designated themselves as the thought police whether they care to admit that or not. Shutting down the president shows that they are willing to do whatever they want in the name of “safety” and supposedly apps are now being blocks entirely from your phone because of this false idea that there was a riot in DC last week… I mean its all crazy stuff. I don’t know what it will take to rope them in but it is going to get worse before it gets better. Hence why I tell people to join our mailing list to stay in touch.
My friendly fire question to you guys this week, what are your thoughts on what happened in DC? Was it a good thing? Was it dangerous? Do you consider it violent? Let me know in the comments below and If you want to ask a friendly fire question, jump over to the gun collective.com and send it our way!

You guys!! This is the cheapest 223 that i’ve seen in a bit and it likely won’t last long. It’s going for 494 per case of 1000 rounds and the cheapest I’ve seen other than this is going for about 60 cents per round. We have used a TON of this ammo, and it runs really well. It is a little dirty, but does the trick especially in times when you can’t find anything else. The information below was copied from the website:
