After exhausting ourselves combing the floor of the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas last week, G&A.com can confidently say two things. First, six days in Vegas is way too many. Second, 2012 is going to be a good year for riflemen and women.
This year will see about as much innovation in the gun industry as there has ever been–from zombie-killing AKs with chainsaws attached to a new interchangeable bolt-action platform–and customers are rewarding the manufacturers’ efforts with record gun sales.
With all the new rifles on the market it might be easy to categorize them as tacti-cool ARs or hunting-only bolt-guns, but we’ll just call them exciting new rifles…in one way or another.
DPMS Panther Arms introduced its latest carbine-action rifle at SHOT Show in Las Vegas with the DPMS Tac 2 Carbine. In addition to a lightweight, 16-inch barrel, the Tac 2 Carbine features a full-length M111 handguard, which includes a rail kit that can be mounted anywhere on the rifle’s forearm, which allows for vertical grips, lights, lasers or backup iron sights.
